|Glade 2 in 1 candles, CVS haul 09/07/12|
This CVS shopping trip consists of only one deal. It is “Spend $12 on select Glade products and get $4 in Extrabucks” . I decided to buy Glade candles, 4 oz., which are on sale at 2/$6.00. This particular CVS deal is good until Saturday 09/08/12. I love air freshners, candles, and such. This is a deal that I couldn’t resist. I used 2- buy two, get one free manufacturer coupons and one CVS Extrabucks reward during the transaction. Here’s the breakdown of the transaction:
2 Glade candles -Hawaiian Breeze @ $3.00 each $6.00
2 Glade candles -Jubilant Rose @ $3.00 each $6.00
2 Glade candles -Vanilla Passion Fruit @ $3.00 each $6.00
Sales tax $1.08
Subtotal (before coupons and Extrabucks) $19.08
1 -buy any two Glade 4 oz. Jar candles, get one free coupon -$3.49
1- buy any two Glade 4 oz. Jar candles, get one free coupon -$3.49
1- CVS Extrabucks reward -$5.00
Total (after coupons and Extrabucks ) $7.10
I paid $7.10 out of pocket and I received $4.00 in CVS Extrabucks rewards. So, it is like I got the stuff for $3.10.
Everything went well with the transaction. I even managed to save a little more than I had expected to. I received $3.49 off with each manufacturer coupon, instead of the $3.00 sale price for each free Glade candle. The cashier simply scanned the coupons and the total was reduced by $3.49 each time. I have noticed that some of the cashiers prefer to scan the coupon instead of manually entering a price into the register, if he or she can’t be bothered. Or, maybe the cashier wants to help me to save more money. This works to the customer’s benefit so, I am not complaining about it. All I know is that I got some nice smelling candles at a reasonable cost.
