CVS $5 Challenge

The challenge is to spend no more than $5 out of pocket at CVS using coupons and EBs (Extra Bucks). Make sure that you have a CVS loyalty card and scan your CVS card at a CVS scanner prior to taking your goodies to the cash register b/c you may save more money! Also, hopefully, you have bought a couple of the Sunday newspaper to get you going. See my previous post for a full preview of the CVS deals.

SS = Smart Source coupon insert in Sunday newspaper
RP = Red Plum coupon insert in Sunday newspaper

    The CVS Colgate offer is a bonanza if you have the right digital coupons! I bought 2 Optic White toothpaste and 2 mouthwash. It took off $5, 4, 4, and $1.96 of a $2 off 2 Colgate toothbrush to make the whole order free! Just paid the tax and got back $8 Extrabucks. Make sure to try buying the toothpaste AND the mouthwash in the same order (I recall that one of the digital offers was $4 off a $14 Colgate purchase, so the total before discounts just squeaked by with less than a dollar to spare).

      So, did your toothbrush coupon work on toothpaste purchase? You did not buy any toothbrush, right?

        There weren’t any toothbrush coupons or purchases involved. Everything was toothpaste and mouthwash, and one digital coupon said “any”, the rest specifically said Colgate.
