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

    a great deal mentioned by Ravi – Some Twist products at Rite Aid are ringing up $2.99 and there is a $3IB. Great for cashing out BC. I got the orange color can that looks like hairspray.
