Last night I was able to make a late night trip to CVS Pharmacy. I had some CVS bucks that were expiring, so I wanted to make sure that I got to use and exchange some of them. I have been saving these from Black Friday, where I was able to harvest lots of CVS bucks thanks to Cheryl from Simply CVS.

I had decided that I wanted to use my CVS bucks for some great stocking stoffers, and since my kids LOVES chocolate, I knew I had to get some great tasting chocolate.

We were also out of Coke Zero, and while Publix next door had a sale to buy 3 for 12 and get 1 for free or 4 for $12. CVS has a sale this week where you buy 4 for $13 and get $3 back. Since I had all of the extra CVS bucks, I decided to take advantage of the deal at CVS Pharmacy.

My CVS Deals:

4 x 12 pk  Coke Zero for $13
3 bags of candy @ $2.50 each = $7.50 – (Buy 2 get 1 Free MF coupon) = $5 ($1.67 each)
3 candy packs @ Buy 2 get 1 Free = 2 x $1.59 = $3.18 ($1.06 each)

I used $19.74 in CVS bucks

Sub total $1.44
Tax $1.43

Total $2.87 

I saved $38.86
I got $5 back in CVS bucks

Okay, I’ll admit it, it was not a practical shopping trip, and yes I could probably have done better on the CVS deals and the CVS bucks exchange. However, I did not see any other bucks back deals that I found useful for my family, and I know they would be sad, if there were no candy in their stockings. Considering the fact that I would otherwise have spent $12 out of pocket at Publix just for the soda, I think I made out pretty well. I am a bit upset with myself, that I did not print out the 20 percent off at CVS coupon….
