CVS $5 Challenge

CVSThe 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.

My CVS $5 scenarios: (CVS Preview 3/10– 3/16)

Scenario #1

Buy 1 Gold Emblem jelly beans $.99

EBs Earned = $.99 Extra bucks

Scenario #2

Buy 1 Di-Gel Liquid 12 oz. $5
Use -$.99 Extra Bucks (from scenario #1)
Use -$3.50 Di-Gel Antacid & Antigas Liquid SS 1/20 (Regional)
or Use -Di-Gel Antacid & Antigas Liquid SS 3/10

Total after coupon used = $.51

EB Earned = $2 Extra Bucks

Scenario #3

Buy 2 Edge Shave Gel $6.98
Use -$2 Extra Bucks (from scenario #2)
Use -$1 Edge Shave Gel SS 2/10
Use -$3 BOGO Edge Shave Gel Printable

Total after coupons used = $.98

EB Earned = $2 Extra Bucks

Total Value = $12.97 – OOP doing all scenarios = $2.48 with $2 in EBs remaining! You can do one or two of the scenarios and get a great deal!

    I just HAD to volunteer this transaction made today (Sunday, Mar 10):

    4 hormel compleats at 2/$4 = $8.00
    2 almay eye makeup removers at $5.99 each = 11.98
    2 cadbury eggs at BOGO = .99

    Total Price = 20.97

    USED:
    $4/20 CVS Q ….20.97 – 4.00 = 16.97
    4 $1 Hormel q’s… 16.97 – 4 = 12.97
    $5/2 almay q… 12.97 – 5 = 7.97
    $3 off $10 CVS CRT (red magic machine)… 7.97 – 3 = 4.97
    20% off CVS CRT (red magic machine)… 497 – .96 = 4.01

    PAID WITH:
    $3.49 ECB… 4.01 -3.49 = .52
    .52 from CVS gift card = .52 – .52 = 0

    GOT BACK:
    $4.00 ECB for purchase of Almay ($10 or more)

    NET COST:
    .02 (two cents!!!) for 4 hormel compleats and 2 almay eye makeup removers…

    you can’t beat that with a stick!!! 🙂

      Oops!

      Need to clarify;

      the $3 off $10 CVS CRT was for purchase of Almay. 🙂
