One of the things I have fun doing is shopping for great bargains especially if they are needed in my household. I also use coupons in order to cut the cost I am paying at the register. I have been shopping using coupons (or couponing) for two years now and I can say that I am having fun. Besides, I can get the products in a very low price or even for free. My favorite store is CVS. Aside from the coupons I receive from the manufacturing companies, CVS also gives out coupons to customers who are members of their rewards program. Every now and then CVS gives you a percentage off your purchases in the mail.
I only grab the products for my household needs. Like detergents, paper towels, bathroom tissue, shampoos, toothpaste, and toothbrush. Today I bought 3 tide liquid detergent and 4 Pantene products. P & G has a promotion this week at CVS that if you buy $30 worth of P & G products, you will receive $10 Extra Bucks or (it is like a cash back but in the form of a store credit/coupon).
I had a $10.50 Extra Bucks from my previous transactions which is last week. So I used it to purchase Tide and Pantene products. Also, I got P & G brand coupons in the Sunday paper and CVS gave me coupons from the Red Box - a CVS rewards card reader machine.
The grand total of this transaction was $32. 81. After deducting all the manufacturers' coupons and CVS coupons, the total came down to $16.83 including tax. I used the $10.50 Extra Bucks and out-of-pocket of $6.83 to pay. I got $10 Extra Bucks back. Not bad for 7 products.
