CVS Shopping Scenario 1/20

Share This Post :

Understanding Extra Care Bucks (ECB) * Shopping CVS
Current CVS Deals

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.

With this scenario we will be getting $31.85 in product for $5.85  + any applicable sales tax with $5.00 in ECB to use next week.

Last week we ended up with $6.00 in ECB which I will incorporate into this week’s scenario.

We Beauty Club members will have $22.58 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.

Transaction #1:

Buy 2 Revlon Single Shadows $5.29
Subtotal: $10.58
Use (2) $1/1 Revlon Eye Cosmetics SS 1-13 (exp. 2-27)
Use $6.00 ECB from last week
Final price: pay $2.58 + get $7.00 ECB
NOTE: If you received the $3.00 off $10 Revlon purchase from the CVS scanner you’ll pay only the tax for transaction #1!

Transaction #2:

Buy 4 Irish Spring Body Wash $3.00 ea.
Subtotal: $12.00
Use (4) $1.00/1 Irish Spring Body Wash SS 1-20 (exp. 2-9)
Use $7.00 ECB from transaction #1
Final price: pay $1.00 + get $6.00 ECB

OR if you don’t need the body wash you can do this:

Buy 4 Speed Stick or Lady Speed Stick Deodorant $2.99 (excl. twin pk)
Subtotal: $11.96
Use (4) $1.00/1 Speed Stick in MOST 1/20 coupon inserts
Use $7.00 ECB from transaction #1
Final price: pay .96 + get $6.00 ECB
There is also an ibotta $1.00/1 credit for some
NOTE: if you do this one the deodorant purchases will not apply to Beauty Club.

Transaction #3:

Buy 2 Crest 3D White, Pro-Health, OR w/Scope Toothpaste  4-4.8-oz  $2.99 ea
Buy 1 Gallon of Milk $3.29
Subtotal: $9.27
Use (2) .50/1 any Crest Toothpaste 4.0-oz. or larger P&G 12-30 (exp. 1-31)
Use $6.00 ECB from transaction #2
Final price: $2.27 + get $4 ECB (Crest) + $1.00 ECB (milk) to use next week

This week’s scenario is like getting $31.85 in product for .85 after ECB!!
