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

      Thank you, Tammy! I was just at CVS yesterday but there was two ladies at the Red machine fooling around so I didn’t scan my card. I am going to run over to CVS real quick! 🙂
