cvs haul 232019 free colgate toothpaste optic white

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!

Transaction details

Purchased

  • 2 Colgate Total toothpaste $3.49 sale price = $6.98
  • 2 Colgate Optic White toothpaste $4.99 sale price = $9.98
  • Subtotal $16.96

Used

  • $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

Takeaway

  • 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
