Ok, I wanted to breakdown my transaction that I did yesterday at CVS, so you can see how I only paid 70¢ out of pocket and received $12 back in ECBs.
Now take note, in order to make the most of your trips :
- Take advantage of all the programs they offer such as the Beauty Club. You receive $5 for every $50 you spend in beauty products. It's free to join.
- I go to CVS once a week, therefore the "Magic Coupon Machine" follows your shopping habits each time you make purchases. So depending on how frequent you shop, depends on how many coupons you receive.
- I buy at least 6-8 newspapers weekly, so I can have multiple coupons to make a purchase that requires you to buy more than one to trigger an ECB for your next trip.
