CVS scenarios for the week of 4/19

If you are just learning how to shop at CVS, start here for some helpful tips.

The coupon match-ups for the weekly deals are here.

The following are scenarios for people who are “new” to shopping at CVS or who have very few ECBs to start with: (these are just ideas….you do not have to follow this exact order and you can skip some items if you do not need them or don’t have the coupons that match up with them)

$7.77 in merchandise for $3.07 OOP, $2.89 ECB remaining to spend
Transaction #1:
Buy Bayer Quick Release Crystals – $2

Spend $2, get a $2 ECB

Transaction #2:
Buy Crest Pro-Health toothpaste – $2.88

Use $.75/1 manufacturer’s coupon
Use $2 Bayer ECB

Spend $.13 OOP, get a $2 ECB

(you can repeat this a 2nd time if you have the coupons)

Transaction #3:
Buy Edge Shave gel – 2.89

Use $2 Crest ECB

Spend $.89 OOP, get a $2.89 ECB

My transactions for the week:
Buy 1 Bayer Quick Release Crystals – $2
Buy 1 Edge Infused shave gel – $2.89
Buy 2 Crest Pro Health toothpaste – $2.88
Buy 2 Benefiber Caplets (36 ct) – $6.39
Buy 1 Benefiber Powder (38 ct) – $9.49
Buy 1 Claritin D (10 ct) – $9.99

Use 2 .75/1 Crest coupons
Use 3 $2 Benefiber coupons
Use $5/2 CVS Benefiber CRT
Use $2 Claritin coupon
Use $3 CVS Claritin CRT

Total before coupons = $42.91
Total after coupons = $25.41

Spend $25.41 (I will use ECBs and either add fillers or pay w/ a gift card to get the exact amount), get $20.89 back in ECBs
