$5 & $10 Scenarios for the Weekly Ad of 12/11/2011

Below are deal scenarios for the CVS ad for the week of 12/11 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.

Thanks, Marisol. That will have been noted in the coupon match up posts, but a second one couldn't fit in the $5 or $10 scenario so it isn't noted in this post. Glad you are getting in on that great deal. Nice gift.
