My grand plan...I have enough Extra Care bucks to buy everything in one transaction. I am going to break the transactions down into 2 due to the unknown prices of the neutrogena cosmetics and how many packs of Bic Pens there are. I am breaking them into 2 transactions because I will know exactly how much the first one is and the second one will be totally free no matter what I buy (so my numbers won't be off).

Transaction #1

2 Caliber Comp Books @ .99 each
2 Caliber Pencil Boxes @ .99 each
1 Colgate Toothpaste @ $2.88
2 CVS Erasers @ .99 each
2 Pilot Easy Touch Pen Packs @ .99 each
1 CVS Tampons @ $1.89
2 Swingline Staplers @ .99 each
2 Arm & Hammer Detergents @ $6.99

Total: $21.66

Coupons I am using:
-$4/$20 email coupon
-$1 Colgate
-$1 Arm & Hammer
-$1 Arm & Hammer

Total After Coupons (pre-tax): $14.66

ECB's I am using from prior weeks: $10 ECB from 2 Bayer Meters & $4 ECB from 2 filler papers last week.

Total OOP: .66 plus tax (should be $1.68 with tax based on $14.66 sub-total)

ECB's Earned from transaction: $15.79
$1.98 (Composition Books),
$1.98 (Erasers),
$1.98 (Pilot Pens),
$1.98 (Staplers),
$1.98(Pencil Boxes),
$2 (Colgate),
$1.89 (Tampons),
$2 (Arm & Hammer)

Transaction #2

This transaction is going to consist of Neutogena Cosmetics and the Bic Pens that are free after coupons with the BOGO sales.

Whatever I end up with I will get for free with the coupons.

I won't have to pay taxes on the items since the coupons are for more than the products.

If you missed my article explaining why I won't have to pay taxes on my second transaction, along with other detail information on adjusting ECB's, be sure to read it here!

I don't understand how the Arm and Hammer detergent is free. If it's 7, with 2 ECB, and 2 $1 coupons, then wouldn't it be $3? Am I missing something? Thanks.

If you purchase the detergent by itself it would be $3 each. I am getting it free by working it into my scenario.

Since I have one of the $4/$20 coupons and am getting overage from the colgate this makes the detergent free (or technically $1.68 for it and the rest of the transaction) after I use prior Extra Care Bucks and get back ECB's from the items I purchase I make back what I spent.

After all is said and done I Spend $14 in ECB's plus $1.68 in cash an receive $15.79 back in ECB's for a profit of .11.

I hope this helps! This is how I get free detergent from CVS all of the time (when they run great sales like BOGO sales or ones with ECB's on them. I roll them into my deals and use $/$$ coupons to try and make up the difference.

Let me know if you have any more questions! I will glady try to help!
