Black Friday 08 CVS Recap

Was Black Friday just last week? I have no concept of time.

I've had a few people ask what I got at CVS so instead of delineating I'm just going to link to this post over at I <3 CVS

I got pretty much the same stuff except I got four of the women's razors, none of the guy razors and already owned a crock pot. Oh and I didn't bother with the energy drinks. They may be small and an effective way of rolling ECBs but no one will drink them and I hate throwing stuff out.

CVS is one big scavenger hunt.

Okay, so I'm new to this, but willing to learn... what's an ECB?

ECB is short for Extra Care Buck. Are you familiar with CVS? They will often print coupons at the end of your receipt. They run weekly and monthly promotions where if you buy a certain item you get a coupon for the cost of the item back towards anything in-store (the official name for these is Extra Care Buck).

For example - on Black Friday if you bought a King Sized hershey's bar for $1 at the end of your receipt you'd get a coupon for $1 off your next in-store purchase. Ideally you'd use it to buy something else that would generate further ECBs (like everything in the picture).

I have to write a post about it...cause well I'm wordy.
