CVS Shopping Scenario 8/5

Share This Post :

Understanding Extra Care Bucks (ECB) * Shopping CVS

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.

Last week we ended up with $5.00 in ECB ($4 from Suave + $1 Herbal Essences/Aussie) . I will be incorporating these into this week’s scenario.

We’ll be getting $51.00 worth of product for $11.99 (+ any applicable sales tax) out of pocket and have $3 ECB to use next week. That’s a savings of about 77%!

Beauty Club members will also have $51.00  in purchases that will trigger $5 ECB the next time you check out or the next time you scan your card (usually takes 24 hours to show up)

Save your $3.00 in ECB (+ your $5 Beauty Club ECB) as we will use it in next week’s scenario :)

Transaction #1:

Buy 1 DermaSilk $19.99 (online price)
Use $5.00/1 any DermaSilk RP 8-5 (exp. 8-18)
Use $5.00 ECB from last week
Final price: pay $9.99 + get $10 ECB

Transaction #2:

Buy 4 Dove Hair Care 5-12 oz. 2/$6.00
Buy 1 Dove Men+Care Body Wash $5.00
Subtotal: $17.00
Use (2) $3.00/2 Dove Hair care RP 7-29 (exp. 8-26)
Use (1) $1.00/1 Dove Men+Care Body & Face Wash (and others) RP 7-29
Use $10.00 ECB from transaction #1
Final price: pay $0 (+ any tax) + get $5 ECB

Transaction #3:

Buy 3 Maybelline Sensational Lip $5.00
Use (3) $1.00/1 Maybelline Lip RP 8-5 (exp. 10-5)
AND use $5 off $15 Cosmetics purchase – CVS scanner cpn
Use $5.00 from transaction #2
Final price: pay $2.00 + get $3 ECB (Maybelline) + $5 ECB from Beauty Club

Note: If you have any of the $5 off $15, $3 off $15 or $2 off $10 beauty purchase cpns that printed last week you can use those in any of the transactions and save even more!
