$5 & $10 Scenarios for CVS Weekly Ad of 9/4/2011

Below are deal scenarios for the CVS ad for the week of 9/4 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 $5 out of pocket cash and $10 out of pocket cash.

You can save the extra bucks left from the last transaction for next week’s extra buck deals and have even less out of pocket, or you could use them towards some of the CVS deals this week or other sale items.

In the second transaction if you have the product for $6.99-$1.50 coupon-$1 ECB from the 1st transaction, then your total is $4.49 OOP not $3.50! :P

Just an FYI, the Excedrin Extra Strength tablets are actually $8.99 for the 100 count at my CVS. I used the $.75/1 Excedrin coupon on the $6.29 (20 ct.) Menstral Complete and got the $5 ECB so it came out to 54 cents.

Thanks to both of you, it was our understanding from the type up that all of them were the same price. Sorry for the error.
