Here is MY $5 Scenario for the week of May 30th:
*coupons in red

Transaction #1
Buy 1 Ban Invisible Solid @ $2.99
$1.00/1 Ban Solid (SS insert 04/18/10)

Total After Coupon= $1.99

ECBs earned= $2.00

Transaction #2
Buy 1 Scope @ $3.99
Pay with $2.00 ECB’s from above

Total After Coupons & ECB’s= $1.99

ECBs earned=$2.00

Grand Total OOP= $3.98

Total Value= $6.98 with $2.00 ECBs remaining.

Keep rolling those ECBs for more savings!

    I went today and the $6.17 I put on my Benny card for my son’s antibiotic for his ear infection doesn’t count! I used a rain check from last week to get two Gillette body washes for $4 each, used a $4/2 coupon (5/2 PG), used $1 ECB, paid $3.44 OOP and earned $8 ECB. Then bought one children’s Claritin at $9.99, used $3 coupon and Ban at $2.99, used $1 coupon, paid with $8 ECB and owed $1.04 OOP. Total OOP $4.48!
