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

    Just checked out at CVS.

    Buy 2 Axe body sprays. My store charges $6.29 each, this week’s A.D. has the 2nd at 50% off. Activate 2 digital coupons for $3 and $1. Receive $1×2 from Ibotta and $3 ExtraCare. My total out of pocket after cashback etc. was 43 cents for both (plus tax). 🥳
