by Tara Kuczykowski on October 8, 2009 · 31 comments

I promised you a new episode of Watch Me Score! with WalletPop last week, and without further ado, here it is!

Please note if you're reading this in a feed reader or via email, you may need to click through to the original post to view the episode.

In case you missed the breakdown of the trip, you can check out the post I wrote that includes all of the items I purchased, their pricing, and which coupons I used.

Stay tuned for future episodes at other stores covered here on Deal Seeking Mom . . .

That is awesome. Wish we had a cvs out in WA. I'm loving my RA deals though... anyone who tries this stuff at least once is sure to get hooked! I love telling people about my deals like this and trying to get them to try it for themselves! :)

I loved it, except for the awful bell sound. That was definitely annoying. You have a nice video presence, though!


8 Beverly Dickison October 9, 2009 at 7:36 am

WOW!!!!!!!!! Thank you for sharing this it was amazing.


9 Hillary October 9, 2009 at 8:15 am

That was great! I LOVE CVS! It saves our family so much money!

Hi, this is my first time watch your "Watch Me Score". I think you forgot to tell people this "Watch Me Score" that you post on Oct 8 is on last week sale from Sept 27 to Oct 3. There also have someone leave you a comment

That is bad, I almost do the same thing to go to CVS and I check my CVS paper cannot found the $10 extra bucks for P&G products.
Hope you do a better job.

P.S. You always do a great job, I love you blog, but I just want to let you know it, so people want run to CVS for a last week sale.
Thank you for all you did :>

....CVS still has batteries buy one get one free! =)


12 Candy October 9, 2009 at 8:36 am

Sorry, I finally see you worte "I promised you a new episode of Watch Me Score! with WalletPop last week, and without further ado, here it is!" Sorry about that, But I still think, If you post the date to let people that be much better, coz sometime when I saw the post date, I will thinking is for that week. That why I found out from my CVS paper. Sorry one more time and I hope "Katice" found out that too, so she won't run to the CVS.

That bell sound was so irritating I couldn't even watch the rest of the video. $5 OOP is awesome though.


14 Jennifer October 9, 2009 at 8:47 am

Love the video Tara...

It's a good thing were not being graded on grammer!!! Geesh


15 Jennifer October 9, 2009 at 8:48 am

Oh...Not the grammer in the video, the grammer in some of the above post!


16 Faye October 9, 2009 at 8:50 am

You did a great job! CVS is one of my favorite stores to shop! I score major deals there as well! Thanks!

The dollar amounts and bell sound effect reminded me of "The Price is Right", loved it! Too fun!


17 Faye October 9, 2009 at 9:11 am

...just wanted to add this...

If Katice ran out to CVS the next day, she will STILL be getting awesome deals! Just not the same ones as Tara! Great deals to be had most every week at CVS!


18 Lauren October 9, 2009 at 9:24 am

Tara, you did a great job of showing us what can be accomplished in a trip to CVS. I think that being prepared before you go shopping is the most important thing. If you know what the sale prices and ECBs are and have your coupons ready, you will definitely save a lot of money.


19 anoo October 9, 2009 at 9:30 am

This video is so good...way to go Tara!!!


20 Bri Clark October 9, 2009 at 9:57 am

Love it.You the bomb.

and spelling :-)


22 Joan October 9, 2009 at 11:13 am

Thanks for the tip and video upload, you look great, definitely a super deal clip. You inspires, I bought 3 tide 10 pcs and 3 bounce 2 months and 1 dawn for the P& G deal to get $10ECB. it was fun. keep up the good work ;)


23 donnainohio October 9, 2009 at 11:17 am

i love the video and i wish that i'll be able to score big too soon :-) and yes it would be helpful if you would write when you did the shopping. Thanks Tara


24 Norma October 9, 2009 at 3:46 pm

awesome tara! I am learning to get good deals as well, but when I watch your video I realize I still have a lot more learning to do. you inspire me to really work hard to put in place a budget that will work for us as i have a family of 6 and have a goal of buying a home in the coming year . I hope in about 6-12 months I can really learn how to get as good as deals as you. Thank you for all your hard work and info. : )
I am in California and would like to find out about grocery store deals if anyone knows of any blogs that follow; Ralphs, Vons, Albertson's,


25 Mitchell October 9, 2009 at 5:12 pm

Liked the video except for the bell sound. That is very annoying!


26 Nicole October 9, 2009 at 8:54 pm

LOVE you, the bell.....not so much. Looking foreward to your next video.


27 cristiniscouponcrazy October 9, 2009 at 9:22 pm

that is amazing. i didnt know that i could use those $1 cheerios printables for the cheerios cups!


28 Deborah October 9, 2009 at 9:27 pm

Hi Norma,
I just moved to CA and had the same question. Sure is different here in CA--not so coupon friendly. Ralph's does double coupons up to 99 cents. There is a blogger that does match ups for all three CA grocery stores. Here is her web address:


29 Deborah October 9, 2009 at 9:29 pm

Also, Ralph's is part of the Kroger family so most of the time they will have the same sale items and deals as Krogers.


30 Norma October 10, 2009 at 2:23 pm

Deborah, thank you very much for the info. I am glad I found someone who can relate when it comes to california deal seeking. usually i can get the exact deals at walgreens and sometimes target, but i find that target here in my area does not carry alot of the items listed on many deals, and most times i get the same deals talked about but almost always over priced by about $.49, still is a great deal. But I never find the same deals that are listed for walmart at my own walmart. they either not carry the item and the prices here are always higher.


31 Adie February 3, 2010 at 6:06 pm

Who knew you could get the cheerios totally free like that?? Crazy! I don't really understand the extra it like a CVS debit card account, can you really use the extra bucks on anything? Too bad for CVS that the reason I don't shop there more is because I don't understand the program. And, I agree--nix the bell! Love love your site and this video, go girl!
