$5 & $10 Scenarios for CVS Deals for the Weekly Ad of 6/19/2011

Below are deal scenarios for the CVS ad for the week of 6/19 for shoppers just starting their CVS shopping adventure or who do not have any or many extra bucks on hand and do not want to spend much cash.  There are scenarios for under $5 out of pocket cash and $10 out of pocket cash.

Beginning CVSing and building up extra bucks so one can keep them rolling week after week takes time.  By investing just $5 or $10 a week for the first month to six weeks to get the extra bucks built up would allow a shopper then to keep rolling that $20 to $50 of extra bucks
each week into new extra bucks.  It is like spending the same money over and over again.

Because not every CVSer has multiple coupon inserts Sarah usually only mentions using one.  If the deal is to buy more than one and you have more than one you can use them and save even more; or some deals you may be able to do another one if the limit is more than one.



This week had so many great deals that Sarah tucked in extra transactions in the $5 scenario so you could get even more items! If you don’t want to do so many just stop wherever you want to or add a little more cash and combine some transactions--perhaps do the $10 scenario.

Why don't you include the matchups from the Reinventing Beauty Magazine?? There are Qs for the Colgate toothpaste and also for the Irish Spring Body Wash which would then make the Body Wash Free and the Toothpaste a bigger MM.

Thanks so much — followed the first two transactions under the $10 challenge. I already had $8 in bucks to start with and also picked up 3 protein bars (sale + coupon) and got everything listed plus the protein bars for $4.30 and walked away with $9 in bucks!

Thi, this post is includes coupons most all shoppers would have access to, the RIB coupons many of us do not have.
