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 CVS shopping scenario we’ll be getting $23.69 in product for $7.19 + any applicable sales tax with $1.00 in ECB to use next week. That’s a savings of about 70% (not counting the $1 EB left over!) It’s like paying 68¢ per item after your $1.00 EB.
We Beauty Club members will have $15.95 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.
Everyone will be getting a $4 off $12 cosmetics coupon from the CVS scanner and we’ll be using this in our shopping scenario.
