CVS = $30 gift card

February 8th, 2007 at 07:47 am

We received, in the mail, a coupon from CVS pharmacy/drug store for a $30 gift card with every prescription transferred there from another pharmacy, or any new prescription.
So I went for it. I have previously had my prescriptions filled at Walgreens, but I don't feel any kind of loyalty to Walgreens. I got the $30 gift card on one prescription already.
I have another coupon and will transfer another today.
I am going to be frugal use the $30 gift cards to CVS for items I would have bought anywyay, like vitamins, makeup, and such.
It almost feels too good to be true.
I hope I am happy with the pharmacy at CVS.
I guess I could always change again.
But for now I am loving it!
And it feels like money I could add to the challenge.
$172.75 = old balance
+ 30.00 = $202.75 new balance

I'm Frugal ! ! !

I started listening to Dave Ramsey last May and ever since I have been into paying off the debt and getting fiscally fit!
But until I started reading everyone's blogs here I was still not being very frugal. But I am now!
I spent $4.75 on lunch at Sonic yesterday while I was out running errands, and it bothered me so much.
Two months ago I would not have thought twice about spending that or more for lunch, but now it really bothers me!
I was like, "$4.75, that is outrageous!"
I was always the type who would not order water in a restaurant. I would always order iced tea or soft drink, but now I am rethinking that. Now, I realize it is the little things that make the difference.
Hey, old dogs really can learn new tricks!
Thank you bloggers for having a very positive effect on me.
