Most couponers will tell you to get the best deals you can’t be Brand Loyal. But like most people, there are a few things my family members are Brand Loyal to (like Steven HAS to use Old Spice Deodorant or my dad ONLY uses Afta aftershave and Noxzema shaving cream). This post is specifically for those kinds of people (*cough, cough* DAD PAY ATTENTION *cough*)
We went to CVS this weekend and got some amazing deals. Check it out!
I can hear you now, “Ok, that’s all well and good, but um…what did you pay?”
As anyone who knows me will tell you, I have really bad knees. It has something to do with my general DNA, but when I was 20 I was told I was going to need knee replacements by the time I was 25. I am also a stubborn woman and refused to get the knee replacements. I now live and die by the amazing knee braces I find in the world. Luckily, braces have gotten better over the years and I only have to replace them every few years. Unfortunately, this just happened to be the year I needed to replace one of them.
I found this amazing brace at CVS last weekend and bought it at full price. I know, it’s against my cardinal rules, but sometimes you have to do what you have to do. I fell in love with it and wanted to get a second one so I could have the matched set (did I mention that I am OCD…LOL).
Here is the comparisons:
The original purchase is on the right…I spent almost $40 for a knee brace. Yes, my heart hurt, but we do what we must for bad knees.
The second purchase (on the left) shows where I spent almost $27 out of pocket and got a $5 ECB back for my next purchase.
Is this a HUGE savings? No, not HUGE, but it is $13 that I didn’t have to spend on my second purchase and was able to apply to other things. I don’t know about you, but $13 in my world pays for my coffee addiction.
