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.

    It must be a sign of the times- I went to redeem my points on Fetch and the $3GC that I usually get is now 3500 points, not 3000. The higher levels don’t seem to have changed. That’s why you always have to cash out!

      Yikes, they should send out notification that they’ve updated the points redemptions. I’m sure in the fine print that they can make any changes to their offer without notification but they should notify us as a courtesy and not us finding out by happenstance.

        Yes and today the Walmart $5GC is 6000 points not 5000!
        Cashed out what I could into target GCs which still had not changed.
