Coupon Shopping at Home Depot, Lowe's, and CVS

My first freebie is actually from yesterday, but the offer is still good through today, so I thought I'd mention it.  Bath & Body Works is offering a free mini candle with no purchase necessary on their Facebook page.  I picked up a pumpkin one for fall.

Another Facebook offer: Home Depot has a Zombie Mulch game on their page, which you can play to earn coupons.  I had some extra time yesterday afternoon while the kids were sleeping, so I played (it took me 30-40 minutes to earn all the coupons).  You do have to use each coupon separately, so here's what I did:

Transaction #1:
  • Winter shovel: $13.98
  • 2 smallest pots: $0.70 and $0.78.
  • Used $15 coupon from game = should have paid $0.59.  I realized later that I got charged for one of my other pots twice, so this total was $1.84.
Transaction #2:
  • 4 biggest pots: $5.28, $2.98, $1.25, and $0.78.
  • Used $10 coupon from game = paid $0.31
Transaction #3:
  • Christmas lights: $5.48. 
  • Used $5 coupon from game = paid $0.52.
I paid for the extra charges with my Jingit card, which had $22.56 to start.  So no money out of pocket there! The pots and lights I am planning to use for a craft project, which will hopefully be a cool looking Christmas decoration.  Look for that sometime soon!

Next I went to Lowe's.  Earlier this month, they were offering a $10 coupon to new e-mail sign-ups.  I'm not sure if that is still valid, but it's worth a shot if you aren't an e-mail subscriber yet.  Here's what I bought there:
  • Pan organizer: $8.99.
  • 8 tiles (for a craft project): $0.16 each.
  • Used $10 coupon = paid $0.29 on my Jingit card

And finally, I went to CVS, because they were running one of my favorite "buy $30 of P&G products, get $10ECBs" deals.
  • 3 Pampers Jumbo Packs: $8.99 each.  Used one $2/1 (P&G 10/28/12) and one $1/2 (P&G 9/30/12) = paid $23.97/3.
  • Huggies Wipes: $3.49. Used $1/1 (September All You) = paid $2.49.
  • Crest Toothpaste: $2.99. Used $1/1 (P&G mailer) = paid $1.99.
  • Used $0.50ECBs and $5/$30 baby products (CVS coupon machine)
  • Total: $22.61.  Used remaining $19.60 off my Jingit card, meaning I spent $3.01 out of pocket and got $10ECBs!
I am super excited about shopping trips like this!  It takes a little bit of planning, but a chunk of time where I don't have the kids along makes it easier.  Yay for good deals!
