CVS Shopping Scenario 7/7

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 $59.36 in product for $14.62 (or $10.42 if you receive the $4 off $20 from the scanner) + any applicable sales tax with $4.00 in ECB to use next week. That’s a savings of about 75% or more!

Last week we ended up with $1.00 in ECB which I will incorporate into this week’s scenario.

We Beauty Club members will have $30.99  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.

NOTE:  Some will be receiving a $4.00 off $20 purchase from the scanner Sunday and if you get it your out off pocket cost will be even less!

Transaction #1:

Buy Gillette Venus  Razor 1-ct. $6.99
Buy Colgate Travel 4-pk Toothpaste $2.99 – $3.19
Subtotal: $10.18
Use $5.00/1 any Venus Razor (excl. disposables) RP 6-16
Use $1.00 EB from last week
Final price: pay $4.18 + get $2 EB (Venus) + $3.00 EB (Colgate)

If you don’t have to $1 EB from last week you’ll pay $5.18 for transaction #1

    you said in this week (7/7) scenarios, that We Beauty Club members will have $30.99 in purchases… I didn’t get any money in my account…(not showing on the bottom on my receipt either)…what would qualify and why do you think I didn’t get any?

      Aniko….when Beauty Club members purchase $50 in beauty products they get $5.00 in EB which prints out on their next shopping receipt or from the scanner. If you bought all of the items in the shopping scenario posted on 7/7 then you’d have $30.99 towards that $50.00. If you didn’t already have some beauty purchases made then you’d need $19.01 more to get your $5 EB. Hope this helps :)
