If you’re new to CVS and don’t have any EB 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 Bucks (EB) to use on future purchases.
With this scenario we will be getting $42.16 in product for $10.37+ any applicable sales tax with $2.00 in EB to use next week. That’s a savings of about 75%!
Last week we ended up with $6.00 in EB which I will incorporate into this week’s scenario.
Remember, you don’t have to do all the transactions in one day or even at the same store.
