CVS Shopping Scenario 3/10

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 $38.43 in product for $10.45+ any applicable sales tax with $3.00 in ECB to use next week. That’s a savings of about 73%!

Last week we ended up with $2.99 in ECB which I will incorporate into this week’s scenario.

We Beauty Club members will have $23.98  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 2 Almay Cosmetics Remover $5.99
Look for ones with the $4.99 retail printed on them – CVS has to honor that price!
Buy Rembrandt Toothpaste 2.3 – 3 oz. $4.99
Subtotal: $16.97
Use $5.00 off any TWO (2) Almay Cosmetic Product
Use $2.00/1 Rembrandt Toothpaste Whitening printable
Use $2.99 ECB from last week
Final price: pay $6.98 + get $4 ECB (Almay) + $2 ECB (Rembrandt)

NOTE: If you find the remover marked with the $4.99 price your out of pocket will only be $4.98 🙂


Buy Starburst or Skittles Fun Size 7.3-oz. Lifesavers, Starburst Jelly Beans or Crazy Beans 13-14 oz. 2/$4.98
Gold Emblem Jelly Beans 7-oz. .99
Edge Shave Gel 7-oz. (no price listed) $3.49 at my store
Subtotal: $9.46
Use $1.00/1 Edge 7-oz.+ SS 2-10 (exp. 3-24)
OR $1.00/1 Edge SS 3-10 (exp. 4-21)
Use $6.00 ECB from transaction #1
Final price: $2.46 (plus any applicable sales tax) + get .99 ECB (Gold Emblem) + $2 ECB (Starburst) + $2 ECB (Edge)

Transaction #3:

Buy 4 Suave Moroccan Infusion Hair Care 2/$6.00
Subtotal: $12.00
Use (2) BOGO Free Moroccan Infusion (up to $5) RP 3-10
Use $4.99 ECB from transaction #2
Final price: pay $1.01 + get $3.00 ECB to use next week!

This scenario is like getting everything ( $38.43) for $7.45 after ECB or less if you find the cheaper priced Almay remover 🙂
