If you’re new to CVS and don’t have any ECB from a previous shopping trip to use on the first transaction then the amount you pay will be your “seed money”. “Seed money” is the money you pay out of pocket to get your first Extra Care Bucks (ECB) to use on future purchases.
Last week we ended up with $3.00 in ECB. I will be incorporating these into this week’s scenario
With this scenario we will be getting $69.62 in product for $16.66 (+ any applicable sales tax) with $15.00 in ECB to use next week. That’s a savings of about 76% (plus we get $15 in ECB!)
We Beauty Club members will have $53.68 in purchases which means another $5.00 in ECB (for a total of $20.00 in ECB for next week)
NOTE: I not 100% sure the Aveeno Anti-Itch qualifies as a beauty product but all the other Aveeno does so I’m confident that it applies.
Remember, you don’t have to do all the transactions in one day or even at the same store.
