Best CVS Extra Buck Deals to Roll Your ECB's on for the Weekly Ad of 4/22/2012

Here are the best deals to roll your extra bucks onto for the CVS weekly ad of 4/22/2012.  Each week Sarah makes a list of the extra buck deals that will use up the least extra bucks which makes them the best to roll current extra bucks into.  I've decided to share the list with all of you as many have asked which deals are to best to roll into.

These will usually be the simplest deals, not ones where you need several of one coupon to make it work.  They are listed in least ECBs "lost" to the most "lost" and only go up to loosing $5 extra bucks.  Only the coupons which will make them the amount shown will be listed--not all that are available, those can be found in the current CVS extra buck coupon match-up post.  (Clarification:  "Lost" is used to note how many extra bucks you will use up on the deal--if you pay with a $5 extra buck and earn a $3 extra buck you've "lost" $2; some people refer to it as "burning" extra bucks).

They are listed from least extra bucks lost after you receive the new extra bucks to most lost.  They are not listed necessarily in the least extra bucks needed to do the transaction.  Also, some of the deals will be better if you have more than one of each coupon--but Sarah always includes  just one insert or two printable coupons in her scenarios.

Thanks to my daughter Sarah, of Sarah's Scribblings, for this list.

Thanks Cheryl, I really appreciate these posts!

Cheryl said...

This is Sarah's work, JR. She does this to figure the $5 & $10 scenarios and used to print them off from her spread sheet for me and then one week she said, "I could type them up for you to put in a post." Glad they help.

That's awesome that you have such great helpers Cheryl, they must have a fantastic mom to turn out so kind.

Awe, such a sweet thing to say, JR. That's all I ever wanted to be was a mom! I enjoy watching you raise your boys now thru your blog--so many memories are brought to mind when I see your posts.
