$5 & $10 Scenarios for the Weekly Ad of 4/22/2012

Below are deal scenarios for the CVS ad for the week of4/22 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: Transactions A & B are optional based on which, if any, is available in your area.  I would suggest that you do whichever one of these is available in your area before moving on to the $5 or $10 scenarios, as they will cost you less OOP, plus you’ll get some cards, and I’m sure we all have someone who would love to hear from us!  (Note, these deals seem to be independent of one another, so if you live near stores that carry both, or are traveling to somewhere where they carry the other, you can probably get both deals.)
