Time to Say "Goodbye"

Greetings to all my readers.  It is with a heavy heart I write to inform you I have come to the conclusion it is time to stop writing the weekly deal posts on this blog.  For some time readership and revenues have been falling, and I have been questioning if it was worth the time I was investing in it, but I kept going...because I'm stubborn, plus I didn't want to let my readers down. This week the website where I get some of the needed info is offline, so I feel now is as good a time as any to stop the weekly posts.  The blog archives will remain here for reference.   I have enjoyed sharing these deals with you, and hope you will understand and will be able to find elsewhere on the internet the info you need to keep getting good CVS deals.  A few places you may want to check are Southern Savers and iHeartCVS.  If you have another favorite site to find CVS deals please share with the rest of us!

I do plan to continue to share various money saving ideas (that may from time to time like Black Friday include CVS deals) on my other blog Simply Earn and Save.

I'll also continue to blog about packing shoeboxes on Simply Shoeboxes.

CVS Extra Buck Deals & the Best to Roll Current ECB's Onto for the Weekly Ad of 1/28/2018 with Coupon Match-ups


 http://www.simplycvsshopping.com/search/label/rolling%20extra%20bucks

Here are the coupon match ups for extra buck deals for the CVS weekly ad of January 21, 2018.   There's a pretty good deal on Fructis haircare this week!

These include the best CVS extra buck deals for rolling.  Each week I make a list of the extra buck deals that will use up the least extra bucks which makes them the best to roll current extra bucks onto.  These will usually be the simplest deals, not ones where you need several of one coupon to make it work.  They are listed in least ECBs "lost" to the most "lost" up to loosing $5 extra bucks.  They are not listed necessarily in order of the least extra bucks needed to do the transaction.

Some of the deals will be better if you have more than one of each coupon--but I always include just one insert or two printable coupons in my scenarios since that is what is available to the greatest number of readers.

(Clarification:  "Lost" is used to note how many extra bucks you will use up

Swagbucks Swago Shopping Edition ~ Thru 1.26.2018

Disclosure:  Links to Swagbucks in this post are my referral links.  

Thank you for using my links.  I also earned SB for sharing this promotion.



Still recovering from all of your holiday shopping? The online rewards site Swagbucks has a smart and fun way for you to earn and save when you spend. 

Swagbucks is hosting another round of Shopping Swago! What is SWAGO you ask? It's
a bingo-inspired promotion run by Swagbucks, a website that rewards you with points (called SB) for completing everyday online activities. You can redeem those SB for free gift cards-we've often used them for CVS gift cards, and we can stretch them even further with CVS deals! We have been members of Swagbucks for years and earn free Paypal and gift cards each month.


Click here to get started!

Here’s what you need to know to get your 300 SB Bonus (and don’t worry, you don’t have to make a purchase to complete a pattern, although you do to get the 300, but you can get at least 5 SB bonus just by visiting a few websites):
  • Go to the Swag page and make sure you hit “Join” otherwise you won’t get credit for completing the action items. Each square on your Swago Board will contain an action item to complete.
  • Once you complete the action item in a particular square the square will change color signifying the action item is complete.
  • You have a limited amount of time to mark off as many squares as possible so use your time wisely.
  • Be mindful of the patterns and their corresponding bonuses located on the right of your Swago Board. The patterns will vary in difficulty and bonus value - up to 300 SB - enough for your first $3 gift card.
  • Once you’ve achieved a pattern the corresponding “Submit” button will light up. You can have multiple patterns available for submission, however, you can only submit ONE pattern so choose wisely.
  • The game ends Friday, January 26th at 12pm PDT/3pm EDT. So make sure to hit “Submit” on the pattern you wish to submit. If you don’t hit “Submit” before the game ends you won’t receive your SB bonus.

Check out more ways to earn at Swagbucks here on my other blog:  How to Earn Free Gift Cards and Cash at Swagbucks Series.

Here are the coupon match ups for extra buck deals for the CVS weekly ad of January 21, 2018.   Excited to see Arnicare on ECBs, I don't know if we've used that brand, but we really like Arnica gel in our family for bruises and sore muscles, and it's hard to find and not real cheap.

These include the best CVS extra buck deals for rolling.  Each week I make a list of the extra buck deals that will use up the least extra bucks which makes them the best to roll current extra bucks onto.  These will usually be the simplest deals, not ones where you need several of one coupon to make it work.  They are listed in least ECBs "lost" to the most "lost" up to loosing $5 extra bucks.  They are not listed necessarily in order of the least extra bucks needed to do the transaction.
