You can do this too!

This week at CVS, Colgate Total toothpaste is $2.99 with $2.99 printing in Extra Care Bucks!    ECBs are essentially gift certificates toward a future purchase at CVS.  The power of this type of promotion can really be seen in Transaction 2 below.  You need a CVS card to do this deal, but it would look like this:

Transaction 1:  Colgate Total toothpaste $2.99
                       Sales Tax (7% for me)    $0.21
                       Total                              $3.20     Receive $2.99 in Extra Care Bucks

Transaction 2:  Colgate Total toothpaste $2.99
                       Sales Tax                          0.21
Pay with $2.99 ECB from Trans. 1         (2.99)
                                                              $0.21  Receive $2.99 in Extra Care Bucks

Check that out!  You pay a total of $3.41 out of pocket for a $2.99 gift certificate, and receive 2 toothpastes!  This is a deal that you don't even need coupons for!  Now, go forth and NINJA!
