CVS Shopping Scenario 4/14

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 $20.57 in product for $5.00 + any applicable sales tax with $3.00 in ECB to use next week. That’s a savings of over 75%!

Last week we ended up with $1.67 in ECB which I will incorporate into this week’s scenario.

We Beauty Club members will have $3.69 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) Nivea For Men Arctic Freeze 2-in-1 After Shave & Gel Moisturizers $4.99 (online price)
Subtotal: $9.98
Use (2) $3/1 Nivea Men Post Shave Balm or (2) Shave Gels or Foams printable
Use $1.67 in EB from last week
Final price: pay $2.31 + get $5 EB From buying Nivea.

If you don’t have the EB from last week you’ll pay $3.98 out of pocket for this first transaction.

Transaction #2:

Buy Milani Lipstick or Lip Liner $3.69
Buy 2 Kelloggs Krave OR Raisin Bran Cereal $2.00 ea.
Buy Colgate MaxClean, MaxWhite or MaxFresh toothpaste 6 oz. $3.00
Subtotal: $10.69
Use (2) .50/1 any Krave 11.0+ printable
OR $1.00/2 Raisin Bran printable
Use $2.00/1 Colgate Max Toothpaste – CVS Scanner coupon (everyone gets one)
Use $5.00 EB from Transaction #1
Final price: pay $2.69 (+ tax) + get $2 EB (from Milani) + $1 EB (from Kelloggs)

This week’s scenario is like getting $20.67 in product for $2 after EB OR $3.67 if no EB used from last week.
