Starting with only $5 with last week’s deal. I really wanted to roll that extrabucks to big money maker deals but I had to work with the coupons I had available. I only have 3 in t his photo because I gave one toothpaste to a friend!
- 2 Colgate Total toothpaste $3.49 sale price = $6.98
- 2 Colgate Optic White toothpaste $4.99 sale price = $9.98
- Subtotal $16.96
- $4/2 Colgate toothpaste digital manufacturer coupon sent to my card using CVS app
- $4 off $14 toothpaste CVS coupon
- $5 extrabucks from last week
- Total $13
Paid out of pocket $3.96 + tax
Received $7 extrabucks ($4 for buying Colgate Optic White, $3 for buying Colgate Total)
While I don’t normally pay for toothpaste, this was a good enough deal for me. I’m perfectly happy to pay $0.50 per tube of toothpaste.
Technically, I only paid $1.96 for 4 toothpastes.
How did I calculate this?
I treat my extrabucks as ACTUAL MONEY because in essence they are, so in this transaction:
- ACTUAL total out of pocket is $8.96. (I’m not calculating the tax since it varies).
- then received $7 extrabucks
- making my NET total to $1.96
- work with what coupons you have
- you and I have different price points – create/have a price point list for YOU
- while it’s nice to always have a subtotal of $0, you don’t always need to
