CVS Shopping Scenario 12/9

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 $25.27  in product for $11.08 (+ any applicable sales tax) with $4.00 in ECB to use next week.

Save your $4 ECB as we will use it for next week’s deals:)

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.

Transaction #1:

Buy 3 American Greetings/Hallmark cards with a regular retail of .99
It will depend on which brand your CVS sells as to which ones you buy
Subtotal: $2.97

Use $1.00 ECB from last week
Final price: pay $1.97 + get $3 ECB

NOTE: the ad says cards $1.99 + BUT it seems to always work for the .99 cards too 🙂

Transaction #2:

Buy (4) 3 Musketeers Bars $1.19 ea. BOGO for.25
Buy Suave Body Lotion 18-oz. $2.97  BOGO Free
Buy (2) Colgate MaxFresh 2/$5.50
Subtotal: $12.32
Use Buy 2 Get 1 FREE 3 MUSKETEERS Bars
Use (2) .50/1 Suave Body Lotion RP 12-9
Use (2) $1.00/1 Colgate MaxFresh – CVS Reinventing Beauty mag.
Use $3.00 ECB from transaction #1
Final price: pay $5.13 + get $3.00 ECB

NOTE: if you don’t have access to the CVS Reinventing Beauty magazine then use (2) .50/1 any Colgate from the SS 12-2. You’ll pay $1.00 more but still a good deal.

Transaction #3:

Children’s Advil 24ct or Liquid 4-oz $4.99
Subtotal: $9.98
Use (2) $1.50/1 Children’s Advil – facebook printable
Use $3 ECB from Transaction #2
Final price: pay $3.98 = get $4.00 ECB to use next week 🙂

This week’s scenario is like getting $25.27 worth of product for $7.08 after ECB for a savings of about 68%!
