$5 & $10 Scenarios for the Weekly Ad of 12/4/2011

Below are deal scenarios for the CVS ad for the week of 12/4 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.

To use the Efferdent coupons wouldnt you need to buy 2 items not 1. If so that will raise your OOP.

Looks like it, Staci. Sarah had her wisdom teeth out this week and hurriedly did this before she went and must have mis-read the coupon details. I'll ask her to double check this and see if she can fix it. It will be a day or two until she is up to it--still quite miserable: four cut out on Thursday. I'll make a note in the post (thanks).

Cheryl said...

Sarah is still quite miserable, so I adjusted the scenarios and took out the Efferdent.

Staci said...

I feel so bad for Sarah. I had all 4 cut out on Nov 1st and it was a good week till I could even function, then it was another 2 weeks till I was back to 80%. Let her know that she is being thought of.

I did the American Greetings deal and got a $1 off 2 greeting cards coupon from the scanner and I brought the printable $2 off 3 American greeting cards Q that has a CVS logo on it. The cashier told me that the $2 off 3 (with CVS logo) was actually a manufacturers coupon. I had initially printed a $1 off 3 coupon from American Greetings website and planned to stack those, but it beeped. That coupon actually excludes 99 cent cards so I switched out my cards from the 1.99 cards to the 99 cent cards and used the scanner Q and the $2 off 3 Q and got $3 ECB back so it was a money maker. My candy cane ECBs didn't print so the cashier printed it for me and it rounded up. I ended up paying about $1.40 and getting $5 ECB back. I was happy with my small purchase.

Thanks, Staci, I'll let her know. And thanks for letting us know how long it took you to get up and about. She is still pretty miserable and not able to eat much. My other daughter had such a severe reaction to being put out that we can't remember anything about the actual healing part.

A great little trip, Amie! My trip is tiny this week--but a money maker,too, so like you, I am happy. Great job on those cards!!! We didn't have that deal here.
