CVS Trip 9/16 - made a profit of $2.69 on $19 worth of merchandise!

I know there's not much to show here, but technically it was a good trip.  I tried to buy the Tylenol pain patch, but since both the CVS coupon and the manufacturer's coupon were printables that looked similar the cashier wouldn't take them.  It was 9 pm and I didn't feel like arguing so I just let it go.  Also I TOTALLY forgot about the awesome airwick deals and didn't bring any coupons.  I may go back tomorrow or I may just let it slide.  We'll see.

$4.99 - Nivea Men's Body Wash Active3
- $2/1 any Nivea product (received in the mail for complimenting their product)
= $2.99, received a $4.99 ECB, so $2 money maker

$3.99 - Skintimate Shave cream
- $0.75/1 from 8/1 SS
= $3.24, received a $3 ECB, so only $0.24

$9.99 - Alive Women's Vitamins
- $1/1 printable
= $8.99, received a $9.99 ECB, so $1 money maker!

Total before tax and coupons: $18.97

Used a $0.99 ECB, two $4 ECBs and a $5 ECB.

Total after coupons and ECB's: $1.30

So I spent $13.99 in ECB's and $1.30 cash = $15.29 total

And I received $17.98 in ECB's, so it's like CVS paid me $2.69 to shop there!!!!
