I had expiring ECB’s this week so I made a trip this morning to roll them. My transaction will follow Karen’s match-ups.

I had $8.99 in ECB’s to roll this week. Since I had so many ECB’s I just did 1 transaction
Bought 1 Vaseline Sheer Infusion, $7.99, get $7 RR
Bought 2 copies of the CVS Reinventing Beauty Magazine, $.99 each (full of coupons!)
Bought 1 Cover Girl Clean Make-up Foundation, $6.19
Bought Cover Girl Ageless Blush, $10.00
Bought 1 caramel candy, $.33
I gave the cashier the $5 off when you spend $25 coupon I got by taking the flu IQ quiz
Use coupon for buy 1 Cover Girl foundation, get any Face Item FREE
Got $10.00 off for the free blush as per the coupon (no limit on free item on coupon)
Used $1.00 off Cover Girl item coupon from 8/30 PG
Used $1.50 printable coupon for Vaseline
Used my $8.99 in ECB’s and paid just tax of $1.38
Received $12 in ECB’s ($5 from Cover Girl and $7 from Vaseline!)
If you don’t have any ECB’s and you do the above deal with the coupons (without the caramel candy that I needed to use my ECB’s), you would spend $8.66 out of pocket for the 5 items and get back $12 in ECB’s which is a profit of $3.34 on the items!
