$5 & $10 Scenarios for CVS Weekly Ad of 8/21/2011

Sarah has gone out of town this weekend to visit her uncle in the hospital, but she typed these up for us before she headed out Friday.  So here are the deal scenarios for the CVS ad for the week of 8/21 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.
