cvs carepass haul

A couple weeks ago CVS sent me a $10 coupon to use on their in house brand. I ended up going in on the last day and buying a party pack of tampons for literally zero dollars. The cashier convinced me to sign up for CVS Carepass. When I first heard about Carepass via a frugal Facebook group, I was against it. Why would anyone pay for coupons? But once I looked into it, I was sold. Carepass is $5 a month, but you get a $10 credit to use on anything. That's five free dollars that you can use on top of ECBs and coupons. There are drawbacks, definitely, but since I use CVS for my monthly prescription, I can benefit.

The first month is free, which renders a $10 credit. I used it to pick up this bottle of Tide (on sale for $5.94), a pack of scrunchies, and a 33¢ caramel for nothing out of pocket. My total was $10.06 (you lose what you don't spend, so shoutout to the cashier for pointing out the caramel (the same guy who signed me up!) for letting me know I need to utilize it all) and I ended up paying nothing out of pocket!

I intend to use Carepass for things we would normally buy - first aid, pain killers, allergy medications. Five dollars a month isn't nothing!
