Buy one Colgate Total Advanced 5.8oz, $3.99 (you will receive $3 ECB)

Buy one Depend Real Fit 3ct, $3.99 (you will receive $2 ECB)
Minus one $1/1 Depend Product, exp. 12/29/12 (SS 11/18/12)
Minus $3 ECB from Transaction #2
Total Spent: Nothing

Total Remaining ECBs to apply towards next week’s ad: $2 ECB
Total Out of Pocket for 3 transactions: $5.48 + applicable taxes for approximately $13.00 in products. And if you used left over ECBs in Transaction #1 you will save even more!
**Also – Don’t forget that your ECBs will expire in a few weeks and if you let them expire, you are basically throwing away money. If you are concerned you will let them expire and you want to use them now, I would put your ECBs towards paper products like toilet paper, paper towels, diapers, etc which are hard to get dirt cheap!
