CVS Shopping Scenario 5/5

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 $57.88 in product for $17.64 + any applicable sales tax with 11.00 in ECB to use next week. That’s a savings of about 70%!

Last week we ended up with $1.50 in ECB which I will incorporate into this week’s scenario.

We Beauty Club members will have $45.92 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.

Transaction #1:

Buy 2 Physicians Formula Concealers $6.49 ea.
Buy 4 Eucerine Original Healing Soothing Lotion 5-oz. $4.99
Subtotal: $32.94
Get $12.00 off for buying Physician’s Formula
Use (2) $1.00/1 Physician’s Formula RP 3-10 (exp. 5-31) – CVS policy is that they don’t give overage so the cashier may adjust the coupons down to .49
Use (4) $2.00/1 any Eucerine printables
Use $1.50 EB from last week
Final price: pay $10.46 + get $10 EB (Eucerine)

If you don’t have the $1.50 in EB from last week you’ll pay $11.96 for transaction #1


Buy 2 Nivea For Men Facial Wash 5-oz. $6.49
Buy Colgate Total Advanced 5.8-oz, Optic White 4-oz, Total Whitening or Sensitive 6-oz $2.99
Buy Bengay $5.49
Buy Bic Soleil disposables 3-4ct $6.99
Buy Kleenex 100-ct., With Lotion 70-ct. or Upright 60-ct. .99
Buy Mitchum/Lady Mitchum Deodorant $1.99
Subtotal: $31.43
Use (2) $3.00/1 any Nivea for Men printable-facebook
Use $1.00/1 Colgate Advanced, Optic White or Sensitive Pro-Relief 4-oz+ SS 4-14
Use $3.00/1 Bengay Pain Relief SS 5-5
Use $3.00/1 Soleil Disposables SS 4-14
Use .25/1 Kleenex from the CVS scanner – everyone gets one
Use $1.00/1 any Mitchum SS 4-7
Use $10 EB from transaction #1
Pay: $7.18 (+ tax) + get $5 EB (Nivea) + $1 EB (Colgate) + $3 EB (Bengay) + $2 EB (Soleil)

This Scenario is like getting $57.88 in product for $6.64 after EB (or $8.14 if you didn’t have the $1.50 in EB from last week)!
