Welcome to How I Save Money. I am on a quest to see how much stuff I can get from CVS without spending any extra money out of my pocket.
Last time I got a gift card so I decided that I needed to keep the gift card separate from the ECB, especially since I can now get gift cards from MyPoints. I added a little section in green at the end where I track the gift card amounts separately from the rest of the ECBs. In today’s transaction the gift card was actually the ECBs from the last transaction…but that might be a little bit confusing. 🙂
