CVS Scenarios 1/20/13 – 1/26/13

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.

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

Transaction #1

Buy two Revlon Eye Shadow Singles, online price $5.49 each (you will receive $7 ECB)
Minus two $1/1 Revlon Eye Product, exp. 2/17/13 (SS 01/13/13 R)
If you have left over ECBs from last week use them here!
Total Spent: $8.98
Receive: $7 ECB

Transaction #2

Buy two Irish Spring Body Wash, $3 each
Buy two Speed Stick, $2.99 each (you will receive $6 ECB for spending $12)
Minus two $1/1 Speed Stick Regular or Lady Antiperspirant/Deodorant, exp. 2/2/13 (SS 01/20/13 R)
Minus two $1/1 Irish Spring Body Wash, exp. 2/9/13 (SS 01/20/13)
Minus $7 ECB from Transaction #1
Total Spent: $0.98
Receive: $6 ECB

Transaction #3

Buy two Crest w/Scope Toothpaste, $2.99 each (you will receive $4 ECB)
Buy one Hershey’s Snack Size 6pk, $1.00
Minus two $0.50/1 Crest Toothpaste or Liquid Gel, exp. 1/31/13 (P&G 12/30/12)
Minus $6 ECB from Transaction #2
Total Spent: Nothing
Receive: $4 ECB

Total Remaining ECBs to apply towards next week’s ad: $4 ECB

Total Out of Pocket for 3 transactions: $9.96 + applicable taxes for approximately $30.00 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!

I’m confused about Transaction #2. Since the Speedsticks are only $2.99, wouldn’t that transaction only total up to $11.98 leaving you two cents short of receiving the $6 ECB?
