Guess Who Just Made $20 at CVS? That’s Right. ME.

The downside is…

That they made me go to the new cashier.  So I could “train” her.  Yep.  We were there for an hour.  And I’m sure the veteran cashier who sent me there was snickering at us.  While in the back.  Drinking a Coke.  On break.

Transaction 1:
2 Garnier Nutritionist face washes @ 5.99 ea =  $11.98
Dove vitalizer facial cleansing massager @ 12.49
Pantene Pro-V hairspray, travel size @ 0.99
(I tried using the CVS Beauty Bar that’s on sale, but they told me soap isn’t a “skin care” product.  My $5/25 beauty coupon wouldn’t work because soap isn’t used to “care” for “skin.”  Mm-hmm.  Anyone else encounter this?)

(So I fibbed.  It wasn’t $20.  And if you count tax it was even less.  But, then I ran to Walgreen’s, grabbed 2 bottles of Clean Care contact solution and 2 Easy Saver books.  I tore the $2/1 coupons from each book and used them in two separate transactions with two separate receipts.  I will be mailing in those receipts with two MIRs and then in turn receiving the full price for both bottles, in the process MAKING $4.  So there.  I bet I made OVER $20.)
