CVS Shopping Scenario 12/16

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 $49.91  in product for $14.93 (+ any applicable sales tax) with $4.00 in ECB to use next week. That’s a savings of about 70%!

Last week we ended up with $4.00 in ECB which I will incorporate into this week’s scenario.

We Beauty Club members will have $23.97 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 (3) Eucerin Professional Repair Lotion 6.8oz $7.99
Subtotal: $23.97
Use (3) $2.00/1 Eucerin Professional Repair or Eucerin Smoothing Repair 
Use $4.00 ECB from last week
Final price: pay $13.97 + get $10.00 ECB

Transaction #2:

Buy 2 Colgate Total Advanced 5.8 oz or Sensitive Pro-Relief 4 oz $3.99
Buy 2 Colgate Manual Single Pack Manual Toothbrushes 2/$5.98
Subtotal: $13.96
Use (2) .50/1 Colgate Toothpaste SS 12-2 (exp. 12-22)
Use (2) $1.00/1 Optic White Toothbrush, Toothpaste or Mouthwash – CVS Reinventing Beauty Mag.
Use $10.00 ECB from transaction #1
Final price: pay .96 + get $6.00 ECB (Colgate toothpaste) + $3.00 ECB (Colgate toothbrush)

NOTE: if you can’t get a hold of the Reinventing Beauty magazine coupns use (2) .50/1 Colgate toothbrush SS 12-2 (exp. 12-22). You’ll pay $1.00 more in this transaction but still a great deal in the end!

Transaction #3:

Buy 2 Hershey’s Pot of Gold 6-7-7.8 oz  2/$7.99
Buy Depends 3-ct. Silhouette or Real Fit $3.99
Subtotal: $11.98
Use (2) $1.00/1 Hershey’s Pot of Gold 6.7-oz+ SS 12-9
Use $1.00/1 Depends SS 11-18 (exp. 12-29)
Use $9.00 ECB from transaction #3
Final price: pay ZERO (+ any applicable sales tax) + get $2 ECB (Hershey’s) + $2.00 ECB (Depends)

This scenario is getting $49.91 worth of product for only $10.93 after ECB!
