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 $15-20 in ECB! I will be incorporating these into this week’s scenario
With this scenario we will be getting $43.98 in product for $2.46 or less (+ any applicable sales tax) with $5.00 in ECB to use next week. That’s a savings of about 94%!!
We Beauty Club members will have $5.98 in purchases towards our FREE $5.00 ECB
Remember, you don’t have to do all the transactions in one day or even at the same store.
If you earned the $5.00 Beauty Club ECB last week you might want to check your online account at CVS.com and print it out ahead of time or scan your card at the coupon machine to print it if you haven’t received it yet.
