Frugal Finds - Greeting Cards

Today I stopped at CVS and took advantage of their Hallmark cards deal. For every 3 cards you buy this week, you get $3 in Extra Care Bucks (ECB) good on a future purchase. I stopped at 2 CVSs and used the first batch of ECBs to pay for the second batch of cards.

Altogether, I got 15 cards, the maximum for the offer. And because I stuck to the $0.99 cards, I paid pennies for the lot. Here's the breakdown:

Cards Total: $14.85
Tax: $0.71
Earned ECB: $15.00

FINAL COST: $0.56 or about $0.04/card
