CVS Scenarios 12/02/12 – 12/08/12

by Addicted to Saving on December 1, 2012

New here? Like us on Facebook below:

It’s a pretty good week at CVS and if you have left over ECBs from last week, you’ll lower your out of pocket total even more! 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 the CVS Ad with coupon match ups go HERE.

Transaction #1

Buy one Almay i-Intense Color, $5.99 (you will receive $4 ECB)
Minus one $1/1 Almay Cosmetic Purchase, exp. 12/30/12 (SS 11/18/12 R)
If you have left over ECBs from last week use them here!
Total Spent: $4.99
Receive: $4 ECB

Transaction #2

Buy one Pampers Jumbo Pack $9.99 (you will receive $4 ECB)
Minus one $2/1 Pampers Baby Dry Diapers printable
Minus $4 ECB from Transaction #1
Total Spent: $3.99
Receive: $4 ECB

Transaction #3

Buy one All Detergent, $3.99 (you will receive $1 ECB)
Buy two Stride Gum 12-18ct, $1 each
Minus one $1/1 all Laundry Detergent printable
Minus one B1G1 Stride Single Pack printable
Minus $4 ECB from Transaction #2
Total Spent: Nothing
Receive: $1 ECB

Total Remaining ECBs to apply towards next week’s ad: $1 ECB

Total Out of Pocket for 3 transactions: $8.98 + applicable taxes for approximately $22.00 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!
