$5 & $10 Scenarios for the Weekly Ad of 1/29

Below are deal scenarios for the CVS ad for the week of 1/29 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.

So I have a question about a raincheck I have...I have a couple coupons for the colgate and I want to do the eb deal..but I'll still be short,so I have a raincheck on the softsoap.how does that work with the eb deal,its on sale this week for $3,my raincheck is for .99cents... does it track it? does it count as $3 or .99cents? Thanks

Great scenarios! I've thought about doing $10 ones as well, for now i stick to $5 though :) I've figured a scenario to get $34+ in products for $4.69! My scenarios assume no ECBs or GCs to help start out, so its great for new CVS shoppers :) Let me know what you think!

FYI ... I did the American Greetings deal this morning along with the $2 off 3 printable and received $3 ecb's back as well. Great money maker!

For the American Greeting card deal make sure to print the coupon from cvs.com for $2 off 3 cards.. can be used on the .99 cards!

As far as I know rain checks seem to vary what they do. I have used them and they have counted toward an ECB deal and have used them and they haven't. But if it is a total $$ amount need it will only count the amount that is paid (the 99 cents in this case).
