UPDATE: So, my shopping had not gone as planned - I wasn't expected to actually SPEND money, but when it happened, I was just like "oh well, it happens." BUT just recently I grabbed my receipts and I saw what happened. I had grabbed the 26 count of Breathe Right Strips instead of the 12 count. SO I paid $14 for those Breathe Right Strips that I was supposed to get for free after an ECB. So, I'll return that tomorrow...and this is how it all played out.
- Myself at CVS: Used $26 in ECBs, should have paid $.54 in cash, received $33.36 back in ECBs. Up $7.36
- My mom at CVS: Used $2 in ECBs, paid $30.46 in cash, received $37.31 in ECBs. Up $4.85
- Our Walgreens transactions: Used $2 in RRs, paid $22.58 in cash, received $12.99 in RRs. Down $11.59 at Walgreens (wrapping paper, therma care heat wraps - my mom didn't just want the trial ones, and laundry detergent)
- TOTAL for the day: we were PAID 62 cents to get all this stuff!!!
