Its Thrifty Thursday!

BIG big CVS news. My sister and I were told about the "possibility" of this promotion a few months back and were very excited about it. This is free ECB's people, just for using a reusable shopping bag which most of us already do. CVS is going green and starting this week near the register at your local CVS there will be a green tag leaf tag that attaches to your shopping bag, much like a luggage tag.
Just attach it to your favorite bag and go shopping!
Everytime you make a CVS purchase the cashier will scan your tag and every 4th time it is scanned you will earn a $1 ECB, just for shopping with your bag. The ECB will print on your receipt just like normal! I can't wait, this will look so cute on my pink shopping bag I got for Breast Cancer Awareness month!
There is alot of free stuff to be had this week, here are a few highlights!
3 Character Bandaids $1.99
Inexpensive filler item (I like the .17 Haloween cups) .17
use coupon from Walgreens Childrens activity book $2.00
The computer will take coupon off each bandaid, so you owe just tax and the amount of your filler item!
**You must have a filler item because when the coupon is taken off they owe you money and that won't work, the more inexpensive your filler item is the less you pay overall**
Ragu Spaghetti Sauce/Skippy Peanut Butter/Bertolli Frozen Meals *Buy 8, get $8RR back, buy 6, get $4 RR*
I love this deal! You could use this to get enough spaghetti sauce and peanut butter to last a long time! I am not advacating cleaning them out, but at my house we go through ALOT of peanut butter so these deals make me very happy! Here is the deal lay out!
