CVS Shopping Scenario 6/3

Share This Post :

Well, here’s my very first attempt at a CVS shopping scenario. This is for you Gillean LOL!

If you are 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.

This week you’ll pay $12.72 out of pocket for almost $30 in product and end up with $7.99 in ECB to spend next week.  If you had ECB from last week you could use them in the first transaction and depending on how much you had, possibly pay nothing but tax :)

Hold on to the $7.99 in ECB because next week we will use it in our first scenario and I’ll show you how to leave CVS paying nothing but tax (if your state has tax)!

Remember you don’t have to do both transactions in the same day or even at the same store.  Your Extra Care card keeps track of your purchases and when you reach the required purchase amount your ECB will print from the register.

Transaction #1

Buy Oral-B Cross Action Power Brush $5.99
Buy Oral-B Cross Action 2-ct. Refill $5.99
Use $1.00/1 any Toothbrush – CVS scanner cpn
Final price: pay $10.98  – get $10.00 ECB

Transaction #2

Buy Speed Stick or Lady Speed Stick $2.99
Buy Colgate Total 4-4.2 oz., MaxFresh or MaxClean 6-oz., 2-in-1 4.6-oz. $2.74
Buy Oral-B Super Floss 50-ct, Satin Tape or Floss 27-55 yds. $2.77
Buy Dr. Scholl’s  For Her  $9.49
Subtotal: $17.99
Use $1.00/1 Speed Stick or Lady Speed Stick over 2-oz. SS 5-20 (exp. 6-10)
OR use $1.00/1 any Speed Stick or Lady Speed Stick (excl. 0.5 oz.) – Colgate Bonus Cpn
Use  $.75/1 any Colgate Toothpaste 4-oz. or larger SS 6-3 (exp. 6-23)
Use $.50/1 any Oral-B Glide Floss 35M or larger or Floss Picks 30-ct. or larger P&G 6-3 (exp. 6-3)
Use $3.00/1 Dr. Scholl’s For Her  SS 5-6 (exp. 6-17)
Use $10.00 ECB from first transaction
Final price: pay $1.74 – get $7.99 in ECB

Again, save the $7.99 in ECB you get this week and check back next Sunday to see how you can use them to your best advantage!
