I took advantage of the Maalox moneymaker scenario available at CVS this week to get 6 free bottles of Maalox (I have 2 different CVS cards — it is theoretically possible to have as many cards as you want, but I find that if I have more than two, I lose a lot of money when Extra Bucks expire before I can use them)
My local CVS didn’t have the Maalox bottles for $5.49, so I ended up purchasing more expensive bottles that allowed me to hit the $20 mark with only three. It was still a moneymaker, just not quite as much and I ended up using the small overage for some stuff I needed for myself. The total value of the 6 Maalox bottles was $44.94 with no cost out of pocket.
Readers and I have now donated over $30,000 worth of food to local food banks. If you would like to participate, I’d love to have you join. Not only will you be able to help your local food bank, you will learn to save quite a bit of money on your own grocery shopping.
