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

    If you got the $5 digital for any cosmetic try combining it with CoverGirl offers. Wifey very pleased with her 49 cent concealer and I even picked the right shade! 😁

    Check your Sprouts digitals for Orgain. The $2 works on the single, snag one for free with $1 Ibotta.

      I’m glad that you picked up the right shade!🤣

        Oh, Ms. B., you learn quickly either to know the right shade or text when you’re in the store. Otherwise you will soon discover that the doghouse is NOT a Holiday Inn!
