$5 & $10 Scenarios for the Weekly Ad of 4/1/2012

Below are deal scenarios for the CVS ad for the week of 9/11 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.

NOTE:  All printable coupons were available at time list was compiled (3/27/2012)--this had to be done earlier than normal this week because of our upcoming move (or our move in progress actually) and scheduled to post on the correct day.   As always, hot coupons go quickly and there is no guarantee they will be available throughout the week of the deal.
