Sunday Scores and Steals 2/9/14 - 2/16/14

Welcome to a new type of Sunday Scores and Steals post! Brittnee from A Beauty Product A Day and I have teamed up to expand Sunday Scores and Steals. It has now become a blog hop where savvy shoppers can show off their bargain buying skills by matching coupons with sales to 'score' big saving or to 'steal' free or almost free products.  In this post I will advise you of the best deals available at CVS and what I plan on buying. Brittnee's deals can be found here. Of course, we will also be posting our hauls to our blogs as well. We welcome you to join us in posting your best finds and then adding your blog post to the link tool at the bottom of this post.

If you need additonal information on how to effectively use coupons at CVS please read my previous post, LEARN HOW TO COUPON AT CVS. I will admit that learning to coupon shop at CVS can be a bit daunting but once you learn the system it can save you plenty of money! This post will seem confusing put trust me it's the simplest way to provide all the information. It will take a little getting used to, then it's smooth sailing from there on out. 

Abbreviation Key:
$1/1 - $1.00 off 1 item coupon
$3/2 - $3.00 off 2 items coupon
2/$8 - 2 items for $8.00 purchase
PG - Proctor and Gamble coupon insert in Sunday paper preceded by distribution date, i.e. 1/26/14PG
RP - Red Plum insert in Sunday paper preceded by distribution date, i.e. 2/9/14RP
SS - Smart Source insert in Sunday paper preceded by distribution date, i.e. 2/2/14SS
BOGO - Buy One Get One Free
BOG50% or BOG50 - Buy One Get 50% off the second
MQ - Manufacturer's Coupon
CVSQ - CVS Coupon - In Store Coupon Center
ECB - Extra Care Bucks issued for specific amount off a future transaction
OOP - Out of Pocket
wyb - when you buy

$10 ECB wyb $30 = $10 Extra Care Bucks are issued when you buy $30 worth of specified product. These offers are calculated utilizing sale prices BEFORE manufacturer coupons. However, if you have an additional CVS coupon from the coupon center the offer is calculated AFTER applying CVS coupons. 

These are the deals that I plan on purchasing from CVS the week of February 9, 2014. I am armed with my coupons, my card and $24.00 in Extra Care Bucks. If you purchase 4 Sunday local newspapers you could purchase all of these deals aside from the CoverGirl with Pantene and the Pond's BB as those require coupons from previous papers.

So for everything I am buying I will be spending $45.24 which is one heck of a bargain. I know that this may seem very overwhelming. Do not fret. Remember you can take baby steps and choose to buy only one of these promotions listed above. Then if you are brave enough, you could always go back for seconds. You don't have to do everything I am doing. My goal is merely to share my couponing knowledge with my readers. I hope this encourages you to begin couponing. Remember to share your coupon hauls for this week in the link tool below. 

Please know that you can always leave me a comment below with questions or try reaching me on Google Hangouts. The chat portion, not video please as I may be at work. I am usually close to my computer or my phone and would love to help you out if none of this seems to make sense.
