This week’s CVS scenarios is late. I’m sorry! Because of the craziness of Amazon’s Prime Day and because my hubby is in Africa, I’m a bit behind on some of my usual responsibilities! This week I have you doing three very small transactions. Your out of pocket spending is higher ($13.86) but you are getting products that are pricier (razors, detergent and sunscreen). You are welcome to combine all three transactions and do just one. However, if you just do one transaction, your out of pocket spending will be higher and you will be left with more Extra Care Bucks.
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 taxesdifferently so you may need to budget a little extra to cover tax.

**Also – Don’t forget that your ECBs will expire in a few weeks and if you let them expire, you are basically throwing away money. If you are concerned you will let them expire and you want to use them now, I would put your ECBs towards paper products like toilet paper, paper towels, etc which are hard to get dirt cheap!
