CVS: Paid $4.95 for over $75 in FREE merchandise with $47 ECB left over!
Through Wednesday if you buy a prepaid PayPal Mastercard and load $150 you get $50 in ECB back. Woooow. There is a $4.95 activation fee which was my only out of pocket expense on this. There are monthly fees associated with this prepaid card so I just ran over to Walmart and used the $150 PayPal Mastercard to buy a $150 Walmart gift card. No further fees and can easily be spent on groceries.
I then used that huge $50 ECB to buy the 20+ items in the CVS ad this week that are FREE after ECB! So you pay with the ECB and get them back immediately. I threw in a few items not free after ECB, but cheap, so I walked out with all the merchandise pictured below PLUS $47.01 in ECB for future spending!
Also, besides the $50 ECB I didn't use a single coupon on this trip. I could have because there are coupons available for some of these items but most were free anyways so I didn't bother.
