CVS Shopping Scenario 2/17

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 $46.09 in product for $7.59+ any applicable sales tax with $5.67 in ECB to use next week. That’s a savings of about 84%!

Last week we ended up with $5.00 in ECB which I will incorporate into this week’s scenario.

We Beauty Club members will have $33.43  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 Clean & Clear Essentials Foaming Facial Cleanser $4.49
Subtotal: $13.47
Use (3) $1.00/1 Clean & Clear printable
Use $5.00 ECB from last week
Final price: pay $5.47 + get $10.00 ECB

Transaction #2:

Buy 4 Eucerin Enriched Lotion Plus Intensive Repair 4.2-oz. $4.99 (online price)
Subtotal: $19.96
Use (4) $2.00/1 Eucerine 2- 16.9 oz. RP 2-10 (exp. 3-5)
Use $10.00 ECB from transaction #2
Final price: pay $1.96 + get $10 ECB


Buy 3 Colgate Total 4-4.2 oz. 3/$6.00
Brookside Dark Chocolate trial size 0.8-oz. .67
Buy Colgate Single Pack Manual Toothbrush $2.99
Buy 2 Ricola Cough Drops 2/$3.00
Subtotal: $12.66
Use $1.00/2 Ricola Bags SS (#3) 1-6 (exp. 3-6)
Use (3) .50/1 Colgate Toothpaste SS 2-3 (exp. 2-23)
OR .50/1 Colgate 4.0-oz+ SS 2-10 (exp. 3-3)
Use $10.00 ECB from Transaction #2
Final price: pay .16 (+ tax) + get $3 ECB (Colgate Total) + $2 ECB (Colgate) + .67 ECB (Brookside)

This scenario is like getting $46.09 in product for only $1.92 after ECB!!
