I purchased 2 24 count boxes of Christmas cards, 3 rolls of 50 sq ft wrapping paper, 1 thermal care heat wrap, 1 4oz Colgate toothpaste, 4 toothbrushes and 2 18 count ponytail holders.
My subtotal was $23.45 (plus $2.05 tax) but then I had $1.75 in coupons so my total OOP was $23.75.
I then received $12.00 in rewards bucks so my actual total for all of those items including tax was $11.75. (remember you have to pay tax on everything you buy even if its free in the end. Uncle Sam is going to get his.)
I saved about 49.5% of my total. Not bad. And next time I go I will use those reward bucks. If they expire you just threw away money. Next I will post my even better CVS trip.
