Very pleased with the deals I got at CVS this morning, especially the Huggies one!
Retail cost: $73.39 + tax Net cost to me: $13.63 + tax Savings: $59.76 or 81%
I got 3 packs of Huggies diapers and the large pack of wipes for less than $10.
The cough drops (2 packs of 40 each) end up being free.
The Speed Stick & Lady Speed Stick end up being $1.
The cereal was $1.
Each 1 Liter of Colgate mouth wash ended up costing me $1.
Since I last posted, I got a couple of FANTASTIC deals at CVS: gift cards!
I bought a $100 Old Navy gift card and got $25 in ExtraBucks. I also bought 2 PayPal Mastercards for $4.95 each. I got $50 in ExtraBucks for each of those. That's a $115.10 profit in ExtraBucks!
I also transferred a prescription to Walgreens that got me a $25 gift card. So starting with those items, here's a list of what I got at CVS and Walgreens between 11/25 and 12/01:

I was quite happy that this year, CVS had their "Black Friday" deals on Sunday before Thanksgiving. Since I won't be near a CVS on Thursday or Friday, this worked out perfectly for me. I got $104.90 of product for a PROFIT of $8.79!
Purchases include: roll of toilet paper, 2 x Right Guard deodorant, Sprite, Powerade, South Beach snack bars, Nature Valley protein bars, Scooby Doo snacks, Nips, Play-Doh, Philips universal remote, 2 x Cleenex, Carmex, Visine, Children's Advil, Command Sample pack, green beans, a caramel, glade plug-in, some energy drinks, "Easy Feet," and an iron supplement. Cost breakdown below.

Note: I bought the wrong Starbucks for the deal, so returning it gives me back that $2.99.
Today, I got $93 of products at CVS for a net cost of $4.95+tax! And that's with one item ringing up $2 more than marked on the shelf, which I didn't catch until I went home. However, since the Pantene coupons went through no-questions-asked, I'm going to swallow that $2 extra I was charged for the Physician's Formula.
CVS Purchases, Sept 30, 2012
For the Physician's Formula, the deal was "Spend $10, get $7 ExtraBucks." Well, I also had a $4 off $12 cosmetics purchase coupon and a $1 off Physician's Formula coupon. I picked an item that was $11.79 (close enough to $12 to use the cpn) with the intent of paying $11.79 - $4 - $1 = $6.79 and getting back $7 ExtraBucks + $1.18 Beauty Club for a nice profit. But the item rang up for $2 more than marked on shelf, meaning I actually paid $13.79 - $4 - $1 = $8.79, getting back $7 EB and $1.38 BC, for a net cost of $0.41. Not bad for bronzer, I guess.
For the Pantene, I had 2 "$1 off 2 Pantene products" coupons and 4 "Buy shampoo, get Conditioner free" coupons. I bought 8 to be able to use all of the coupons (only works if you give the $1/2 before the BOGO). In a bonus, the BOGO coupons were programmed to automatically take off $6.99 instead of prompting the cashier to enter the actual price ($4 in this case). So while I SHOULD have paid $14 for the 8 Pantene products, then get $10 back, I ended up paying $2.04 and getting $10 back. That's a $7.96 profit! PLUS, I'll get 10% back of the sale price via the Beauty Club ($3.20) making this a $11.16 profit!!
