Free Melatonin


JD takes Melatonin daily so finding it on sale is always a great deal for me. This week CVS had it on sale with a $2.00 ECB. The CRT machine was giving $1.50 off $5.00 vitamins.

I had ECBs from last week, so I bought 1 Melatonin, 1 bag of popcorn and 1 bottled water.
I used $1.50 coupon, $1.00 manufacturer coupon and $5.00 ECB from last week. I paid $.66 oop and I got back $2.00 ECB.

Raincheck Purchase

Today I went to Rite Aid to get the Tylenol Precise patches. Of course they were out, so I tried something new that I had heard about. I purchased the Tylenol Precise and used my coupons. I got a raincheck to come back to pickup the items and my coupons will not expire this way. I even got an UP reward.

6 Tylenol precise patches $5.00
I used 6 $5.00 off Tylenol coupons.

I paid $2.10 in taxes and got back $10.00 UP reward and a survey. I will go on Wednesday and pickup the items.
