CVS Scenarios 10/21/12 – 10/27/12

by Addicted to Saving on October 20, 2012

New here? Like us on Facebook below:

Here are this week’s scenarios for CVS. 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. 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.

If you are new to shopping at CVS, go HERE to read Intro to CVS.

To see this week’s CVS Weekly Ad go HERE.

Transaction #1

Buy one Pumpkin Masters Carving Kit, $2.49 (you will receive $2.49 ECB)
If you have left over ECBs from last week use them here!
Total Spent: $2.49
Receive: $2.49 ECB

Transaction #2

Buy one Di-Gel Liquid 12 oz, $5 (you will receive $3 ECB)
Buy three Stride ID Gum, 3/$3 (you will receive $1 ECB)
Minus one $2/1 Di-Gel Liquid  SS Insert 10/21/12 (exp 12/31/12)
Minus one B1G1 Stride ID Gum, exp. 11/10/12 (SS 09/16/12 R)
Minus $2.49 ECB from Transaction #1
Total Spent: $2.51
Receive: $3 ECB & $1 ECB

Transaction #3

Buy one St. Joseph Aspirin 120 ct, $5 (you will receive $3 ECB)
Minus one $2 off St. Joseph Aspirin, exp. 10/31/12 (SS 09/09/12 R)
Minus $3 ECB from Transaction #2
Total Spent: Nothing
Receive: $3 ECB

Total Remaining ECBs to apply towards next week’s ad: $4 ECB ($1 ECB from Transaction #2 & $3 ECB from Transaction #3)

Total Out of Pocket for 3 transactions: $5.00 + applicable taxes for approximately $15.50 in products. And if you used left over ECBs in Transaction #1 you will save even more!

**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, diapers, etc which are hard to get dirt cheap!

Hi….I’m still very new to couponing and have always stayed clear of CVS because it just looked so confusing….I wanted to try it out but had a question or two :)

In regards to the multiple transactions, do the tellers ever get mad with you when you ask them to split into multiple transactions?

Also how do you start if you don’t have any ECB’s loaded on your card? Most of the scenarios I see all say to use the ECB’s from previous weeks…

Does it really benefit you to split them into multiple transactions or could I just buy all of it (spend the most upfront) but have more to save the next week when i could use all the ECB’s? or are there rules?

Sorry for the questions, I wanted to do the scenarios you had posted and also the schick hydro razor one and maybe the pantene one since that looks good also…so confused
