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.

    Good deal on coffee this week at CVS if you aren’t too picky about brand. I found Maxwell House Original Roast 11.5oz on clearance for $2.79. Submit for $1.25 IB= $1.54

      Is it ground coffee?

      Nothing wrong with Maxwell House coffee, I used to drink it at work all the time! Thanks for the heads up! 🙂

        Every Monday get free Krispy Kreme coffee and donut (scroll down on this link):
        Start your week on a sweet note! On Mondays starting 3/29 through 5/24, stop by your local Krispy Kreme shop for a FREE Original Glazed® doughnut and medium brewed coffee, no purchase required. Mondays are better with a melt-in-your-mouth Original Glazed® doughnut and coffee in hand.
