CVS Shopping Scenario For The 3-Day Ad 10/7- 10/9

Share This Post :

Understanding Extra Care Bucks (ECB) * Shopping CVS
Current CVS Deals

There will be 2 ads this week for most so I will be posting 2 CVS shopping scenarios. The following scenario will be for the 3 day ad (10/7 – 10/9). When I receive the 4-day ad from CVS I’ll post the other one.

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 $4.00 in ECB. I will be incorporating these into this week’s scenario.

We’ll be getting $19.97 worth of product for $5.47 (+ any applicable sales tax) out of pocket and have $4.00 ECB to use for the 4-day ad scenario coming. That’s a savings of about 72%

Save your $4.00 in ECB  as we will use it in the 4-day ad scenario:)

Remember you don’t have to do both the transactions in one day or even at the same CVS.

Transaction #1:

Buy Optic White 4.0-oz. Toothpaste $4.49 (online price)
Buy Optic White 5.5-oz. Toothpaste $5.49 (online price)
Subtotal : $9.98
Use (2) .75/1, or $1.00/1 any Colgate Toothpaste 4-oz+ SS 9-30 (exp. 10-20)
OR (2)  .75/1 Colgate Optic White Toothpaste
Use $4.00 ECB from last week
Final price: pay as low as $4.48 +  get $5 ECB

Transaction #2

Gillette Fusion ProGlide Razor $9.99
Get $5.00 ECB wyb 1limit 1
Use $4.00/1 Gillette Fusion ProGlide (excl Styler) RP 10-7 (exp. 11-30)
Use $5.00 ECB from transaction #1
Final price: pay $.99 + get $4.00 ECB to use for the 4-day ad scenario.

I know this is short but if you keep your $4 ECB and combine it with the 4-day ad scenario I’m sure we’ll come out with a greater amount of product at a greater savings after all is said and done.
