CVS Shopping Scenario 5/19

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 $23.97 in product for $5.72+ any applicable sales tax with $3.00 in ECB to use next week. That’s a savings of about 76%!

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 $14.00  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 Total Advanced Rinse 8-oz. $2.99 ea.
Buy Coke 2-liter Bottles .99
Buy 3 Mars Chocolate Fun Size 6 pk. 3/$3.00
Subtotal: $9.97
Use (2) $1.00/2 Total Rinse SS (#1) 5-19
Use (2) $1.00/2 Total Advanced Rinse -CVS coupon (must share)
Use .25/1 Coke 2-liter – CVS scanner coupon (everyone gets one)
Use $5.00 EB from last week
Final price: pay .72 + get $2.00 EB (Total) + $1.00 EB (Mars)

If you don’t have the $5 EB from last week you’ll pay $5.72 for transaction #1


Buy 4 Suave Body Wash 2/$4.00
Buy 2 Suave Lotion 2/$6.00
Subtotal: $14.00
Use (2) Buy 2 Suave Body Wash & Get Lotion Free (up to $3) RP 5-19 (exp. 6-2)
Use $3.00 EB from Transaction #1
Final price: pay $5.00 + get $3.00 EB to use next week

This scenario is like getting $23.97 in product for $2.72 after EB (or $7.72 if you didn’t have the $5 EB from last week)

If you received the $4.00 off $20 purchase coupon you can do this scenario instead:

Buy 4 Excedrin Extra Strength, 24 ct., $4.99 (online price)
Buy Coke 2-liter .99

Use $4 off $20 purchase coupon
Use (4) $1.00/1 Excedrin Product SS 4-14 (exp. 6-2)
OR $1.00 off ONE Excedrin 24 ct. product or larger
Use $5.00 EB from last week
Final price: pay $7.95 – get $10 EB = FREE + $2.05 money maker!

If you don’t have the $5 EB from last week you’ll pay $12.95 – get $10 EB = 5/$2.95 (.59 ea.)
