Moneymaking Mastermind: Part 2


When we last saw our evil coupon mastermind, she was trying to figure out how to redeem her Olay scenario gone wrong and still profit. Did she do it? *cue evil laugh*

  • 4 Nature's Bounty Vitamin D tablets, $5.49 (buy one get one FREE)
    1 Olay Total Effects moisturizer, on sale for $18.99
    1 Olay Total Effects foaming facial cleanser, $10.99
    Subtotal: $29.97

    - Used the $4 off $20 facial product purchase CVS scanner coupon
    - Used the $3.00 coupon for Olay from the 3/7 PG
    - Used the "FREE facial cleanser wyb TE moisturizer" coupon from the 3/7 PG
    - Used 4 of the Nature's Bounty $5.00 printable coupons

    Final Total: $3.28 and got back a $10.00 ECB for finishing up the Olay Deal (buy $24.99 worth and get a $10.00 ECB). I also returned the Stayfree from the previous transaction and got back $4.08.
Whew! Let's break this evil plan down so that it makes sense:

Transaction 1: Spent $1.49
Transaction 2: Spent $3.28
- Less the $10.00 ECB for buy $24.99 in Olay products
- Less the $20.00 Olay mail-in rebate (when you buy $50 of Olay facial products)

Grand Total: $25.23 profit!

Good thing we've got multiple computers here at home. I just printed off 6 more coupons and am about to go do this again on my card and submit for another rebate under DBF's name. I have to pick up another Halle perfume also, so that's another $5.00 profit.

Total Profit at CVS this week: $53.46!!! This evil mastermind business really pays off!
