Proctor & Gamble spend $50 and get $15 rebate

So- the beginning of November I began referencing a P&G rebate we had.  Buy $50 worth of participating products from 11/1/14-12/31/14 and get a $15 prepaid visa card.  I know this sounds nuts, $50 worth of stuff???  For $15????  I used to think so too- but I always participate in these rebates now.  Let me show you what I did this time:

11/21/14 Bought 2 Covergirl Lashblast Mascara, $8.99 each......................... $17.98
-$2.50 mq covergirl
-$2.50 mq covergirl
This was part of a spend $30 get a $10 gift card deal that week.  Since it's about 1/2 of the $30 we will count $5 of the ecb as a credit.

12/7/14 Bought 2 eye shadows, one was $5.99 and one was $6.29................. $ 12.28
-$2.78 20% off purchase cvs q
-$1.50 covergirl mq X2
Buy 2 covergirl earn $5 ecb

12/19/14 Bought 2 covergirl flipstick lipsticks $5.25 each...............................$ 10.50
-$2 covergirl flipstick printable mq X2

12/28/14 Bought 6 pantene at 3/$10..................................................................$20
-$5/3 pantene manu q X2
Part of spend $30 earn $10.  We will credit $6.50 ecb to this purchase since it's about 2/3.

Total product purchases before coupons............................................................$60.76
Spending over $50 qualified me for the $15 rebate.  Now- lets see how much I really spent.

Less manufacturer coupons................................................................................-$24.78
Less extra care bucks earned..............................................................................-$16.50
Less beauty club ecb earned for spending $50 in cvs on beauty items..............-$5
Total cash spent after earned extra care bucks (ecb)...........................................$14.48

Then I submit for the $15 rebate, and that brings me back flush.  Totally worth my time I say to keep track of the upc numbers and receipts.  I will get this in the mail today.  If you haven't participated up until now, your purchases have to be completed by 12/31/14.  Not much time but a lot of included items at CVS this week.

I didn't get the pantene in the picture- just envision 6 bottles of shampoo/conditioner.  And I miscalculated and didn't need the six bottles of dawn to reach the $30, but they won't go to waste so all is well!

Plus I am going to use the pantene receipt for the spend $50 earn $15 rebate.

One deal I didn't do was the spend $15 and get $5 on certain make ups and lotions (center of the ad middle pages).  There are some nice deals there, I was just too tired to make it work.
