$5 & $10 Scenarios for the Weekly Ad of 9/25/2011

Below are deal scenarios for the CVS ad for the week of 9/25 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.

PLEASE NOTE:  There is a printable coupon no longer available that Sarah included in here--it was available when she did the scenarios.  I have
made a note beside it in the transaction--there is a coupon coming out Sunday for $1 less that will work so you will have to pay a dollar more if you did not print the $5 coupon when it was available earlier in the week. [Usually if there is a coupon no longer available she will re-write a new scenario for us, but she isn't able to take the time today.]

Thanks for posting the scenarios. I completely missed the Excedrin having a limit of 2. Not used to seeing that on a freebie!

Went to CVS this morning, and bought 2 of the optic white toothpaste, in the ad it says buy 1 $2.99 & get $1 ecb, when i checked out the prices were $2.35ea but it did not print my ECB, talk to the Mgr, asking her why my ecb did not print? Mgr answers - hmm you know what its a monthly dea l since I already bought 2 last week so I don't get my ecb -, Me- I said okay (thinking to myself I'm just going to call the corporate and ask for my ecb) i don't see anywhere in the ad that says monthly thing. and also it did not say anywhere in my receipts that I already bought the item. what's your thought about my situation? I know its only a total of $2 but, my point was it did not say anywhere in the ad that it is a monthly deal thing.

I bought my 3rd optic white today (one this week and two last week) and it printed the ECB for this week (as well as the 2 from last week).
Also, I was told that if the 8 digit code underneath the deal in the ad is different it is a different deal. The code for last week's optic white was 13951728. This week it's 14011862. Hth

Medinamom, I would call. Unless you bought the wrong ones and that is why they rang up differently you should get the extra bucks since it does not show on your receipt as having met the limit.

Thanks, Amanda, for the great input. Checking those numbers is a great help in knowing you are doing it correctly. Usually if it is a monthly deal they will increase the limits if they put it in more than one ad (the limit will cover both ads).

Thank you so much forthe info, I appreciate it. I will call the corporate today, I bought the right item & size, I know because when I ask the cashier she check my receipt & the item I bought & she said I did get everything rg
right.

I called the corporate today and I was told that it is not a monthly deal, she said my extra bucks should have printed for the item i bought, it will be in my card within 48 hours. I thought I'll let you know.

Great, Medinamom! Sarah just got back from CVSing for me and told me they did not print for her either so they printed them there for her.
