CVS Black Friday Scenarios

Are you getting your FREEBIES on Black Friday? This year CVS is not disappointing us! I am noticing that the freebies are for lesser priced items (we can get tons of candy for free). And I do wish there were a few more practical type freebies we could get. But it was still a lot of fun to put together these CVS Black Friday Scenarios. I have you doing five (yes 5) transactions. In the end, your out of pocket spending should be $9.21 on roughly $42.81 worth of items! Will you be heading out to CVS on Black Friday??

This week’s CVS scenarios are different than normal. I have you doing three transactions. And then, if you are someone who buys (and uses) Excedrin, scroll all the way to the bottom of this post to do the optional fourth transaction. The fourth transaction requires quite a bit of money out of pocket ($15.00) BUT you will also earn $10 ECBs making two 100 ct bottles of Excedrin only $2.50 each. So, do the fourth transaction if you are in need of Excedrin. Otherwise, stop after Transaction Three.

This post includes specific items you can purchase and coupons that you can use to maximize your dollar AND your Extra Care Bucks at CVS. If you have Extra Care Bucks leftover from last week, apply those towards your transactions to spend even less out of money! Please know that you do not have to follow these transactions if you do not want to. The goal of this post is to help you get an idea on how to roll your Extra Care Bucks from one scenario to the next. Please also know that these transactions do not take into account tax. Every state taxes differently so you may need to budget a little extra to cover tax.

I’m not overwhelmed with this week’s CVS ad. I’m taking a week off from shopping at CVS this week. However, if you have ECBs that are expiring or want to get some still decent deals, check out the scenarios I created below. With today’s three transactions, I do have you spending a bit more out of pocket ($14.86). However, that does not factor in the $1.00 Cash Back you will receive from Ibotta and the $5.00 Cash Back from the Mail in Rebate. If we factor in the cash back, we will only spend $9.86!
