S#5 has gotten into using CVS Extra bucks lately. She gets all excited when she gets a load of candy for work for just a few dollars or bargains on her favorite lotion or various stuff for free. Saturday I needed to buy new lipstick for the school auction. I called S#5 to see if she wanted to go to cvs with me and get my extra bucks. She was busy so I went alone and used DH's card.
I was surprised when I checked out to find there was a special running on the brand of makeup I bought. I earned $4.00 in extra bucks for buying lipstick and eyeshadow.
Fast forward to Sunday evening when I had to buy valentines for J to take to school. He wanted nothing to do with making his own like his brother. Since I had the $4.00, I headed to CVS instead of the usual Target. He picked up two boxes of valentines and we paid.
I was again surprised when I looked at the receipt.
For two boxes of valentines, originally $6.50 with tax, I paid $0.52. Now that's a bargain. I may have to start paying attention to CVS and joining the Extra Bucks band wagon.
