CVS: Extremely Cheap Finish Tabs and Other CVS Cash Scenario

Typically I do not like highlighting deals that require many of the same coupon.  Can it be “extreme savings” to use 9 of the same coupon, yes!  But it is not always realistic.  Regardless of what “that show” makes you think- most average couponers do not have that many of one coupon at at a time.

However, with that being said…There is a great deal you can score this week to get 9 boxes of Finish tabs or gelpacs for as low as $0.24 each at CVS.  Since this deal takes 9 coupons, and only two coupons can be used per transaction so you’ll have to split this one up into several transactions!  Don’t worry the $30 needed to spend to qualify for the $10 CVS Cash does not have to be in one transaction, just be sure to use the same ECB card each time. Here’s how it works out:

Finish Powerball Tabs (20 ct.): $3.50 each
Get $10 CVS Cash wyb $30 in participating products
$2.15/1 Finish Quantum Powerball or Gelpacs, exp. 1/30/12 (SS 01/01/12)
Final price= $2.15 ($0.24 each!) after using 9 coupons and CVS cash!

To clarify any coupon concern: The coupon mentioned from the 1/1 Smart Source insert can be used toward the purchase of any Finish® Quantum 25 count or higher. It can also be used on any size Finish Powerball Tabs or Finish Gelpacs. Thanks, Fabulessly Frugal!

I do not have that many of the Finish Coupons, I just have 3.  So I will be doing this scenario:

(3) Finish Powerball Tabs (20 ct.): $3.50 each
(2) All laundry detergent: 2/$4 (unadvertised sale price on select varieties)
(4) Rembrandt Toothpaste or Whitening Rinse: $3.99 each
Subtotal= $30.45
Use (3) $2.15/1 Finish Quantum Powerball or Gelpacs, exp. 1/30/12 (SS 01/01/12)
Use (2) $1/1 All Laundry Detergent, exp. 2/12/12 (RP 01/01/12)
Use (4) $2/1 Rembrandt Toothpaste or Rinse printable and $2/1 Rembrandt Toothpaste or Rinse printable
Final total= $6.16 for all 9 items ($0.68 ea) after coupons and $10 CVS Cash

Still not a bad deal!  Let us know your CVS Cash Scenarios!

Update: I did this deal last January (it seems to run this time every year) and since I was able to purchases 20 Finish coupons on Ebay, I scored 2 years worth of Finish. One year later, I still have 11 of these left! This was my first and only attempt at Extreme Couponing and it certainly paid off. At Costco my friend asked me if I needed Cascade. No, not for another year. Thanks though! =)

While it’s not worth my time and energy to purchase “extreme” amounts of coupons on a regular basis, once in a while it certainly pays off. Last year there were many great sales to pair with this $2.15 Finish coupon (which was worth $2.25 last year). It could be worth it to buy coupons off Ebay or a clipping service with a high value coupon like this one.

    I was in CVS the other day and was going to buy the products that qualified toward the $10 gift card. I was looking for the Finish with the powerball with no success when a woman came down the isle and put nine or more boxes back on the shelf, the same kind I was looking for. We sarted talking and she asked me if I got the coupon for $2.15 out of the paper. Even though I had purchased two papers that day, I apparently didn’t get the insert with the Finish coupon but I had printed off two worth $0.50. She said she was putting the Finish back because she really didn’t need them and going to be spending more money than she had planned on discounted Christmas items so promptly handed me nine coupons valued at $2.15 each. I felt like I had struck gold! I thanked her and then discovered that she is a couponer who also teaches couponing and she gave me her card. So between the sale prices, the coupons I used and the Extra Bucks that I had from my last trip, I spent $13.74 and saved $57.74, thanks mostly to the Professional Coupon Diva. That was my best shopping trip ever! I also won’t need to buy dishwasing soap for a long time.

    Thanks for sharing your story Sheryle. I love to give coupons out at the registers. People either look at me like I am crazy or thank me. It makes my day and theirs! Just today at Target, I left a Target Q and a MQ for SmartOnes in the freezer next to the product. I sure hope someone found them! :)
    Glad you had such a successful CVS trip.
