$5 & $10 Scenarios for CVS Weekly Ad of 9/11/2011

Below are deal scenarios for the CVS ad for the week of 9/11 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.

I like the way you break down the transaction. You can get a lot of stuff for ten dollars. Just wanted to thank you!

Kelly, thanks for the link. I try not to post PDFs as they can be misused--but that is the coupon you can get for signing up thru the link above. Sometimes they are coded differently for each one so I do not know if it can be printed more than once so I will leave it off this time. I really appreciate you sharing it though.

I have a question. In my SS 9/11 I have a $1q for $1 off Bayer aspirin low dose...not St Joseph?? Did I miss this, they would not accept it because it said Bayer and not St. Joseph??? Thanks!!

Donna, there was to be a St. Joseph, too. I did not get the paper this week, but there was one in an earlier insert and I did not get it. So it may have been regional. Sorry you missed out.
