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

Below are deal scenarios for the CVS ad for the week of 10/9 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.
