CVS Shopping Scenario 2/3

  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 $49.97 in product for $10.48 + any applicable sales tax with $4.00 in ECB to use next week. That’s a savings of about 79%!

Last week we ended up with $3.00 in ECB which I will incorporate into this week’s scenario.

We Beauty Club members will have $5.99 (+ price of CVS polish remover)  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 4 Glade 4-oz. Jar candles $3.00 ea.
Buy 2 Glade Plugins Refills 1-ct. $3.00 ea.
Buy 4 Glade Expressions Mist Starter Kits $3.00 ea.
Subtotal: $30.00
Use (2) $2.00/2 Glade Jar Candles SS 1-13 (exp. 2-9)
Use (1) $2.00 off 2 Glade PlugIns Scented Oil refill
OR (1) $2.00/2 Glade Plugins Scented Oil Refill
Use (4) $2.00 off any Glade Expressions Starter Kit
Use $3.00 ECB from last week
Final price: pay $13.00 + get $10.00 cash card

Transaction #2:

Buy 2 Crest 6.4-oz, Whitening with Scope 4-4.8 oz. or Pro-Health toothpaste  2/$5.00
Buy L’Oreal Nail Color $5.99
Buy Rapid Sleep PM 4-ct. $1.99
Buy 6-oz. CVS Polish Remover  (will be free for buying L’Oreal polish)
Subtotal: $12.98+
Use $1.00 on ANY L’Oréal® Paris Colour Riche nail product
Use (2) .75/1 Crest Toothpaste 4-oz + P&G 1-27 (exp. 2-28)
Use $10.00 cash card from Transaction #1
Final price: pay .48+ get $2.00 ECB (Colgate) + $1.99 ECB (Rapid Sleep)

Transaction #3

Buy Venus Razor $6.99
Use $2.00/1 any Venus Razor P&G 1-27 (exp. 2-28)

This scenario is like getting $49.97 worth of product for $10.48 + tax after ECB!
