CVS, Friday the 13th was a good shopping day

A CVS/pharmacy in New York City that is open 24/7

Ran into CVS early this morning.  I wanted to get the Ziploc bags since I just used my last one yesterday.  I also had my $5 off of a $25 purchase coupon that I wanted to take advantage of.   Yesterday, I received my John Frieda hair color coupon (good for a free box, and that stuff is kind of expensive…it was on sale for $12.49 and I paid nothing for it, except tax).  So I knew I was going to be able to hit the $25 threshold easily, and I did.  My order would have been $38.75.  I ended up paying $3.22 after coupons and ECBs…and came away with another $4 in ECBs for a future purchase.

So, not bad for 2 boxes of Ziploc freezer bags, 2 boxes of Ziploc sandwich bags, a box of hair color, 2 bags of Cheetos (I left one at work), and a bottle of iced tea (drank that at work).  Who says Friday the 13th brings bad luck?  They obviously weren’t shopping at CVS today!

  1. You are so lucky to have a CVS near you! I p/u my free hair color this week also. I think I have 4 boxes stock piled now for future use!
    Yes today ws a good day here too! Have a wonderful weekend!

  2. There are actually several CVS stores in my town…there just happens to be one across the street from where I work, so that makes it pretty darn handy!

    I usually use Natural Instincts hair color, and I have quite the little stockpile of it,usually paying under $3 a box. But I’m anxious to try the John Frieda. I can’t believe I used to pay around $8 a box for hair color!! Don’t you just love how much money we can save?

  3. As usual, I’m envious. But you must have sent good vibes my way on Kroger. I just got $44 wortth of groceries for $23! (I’ve never done that well!) Thanks!
