$5 & $10 Scenarios for the Weekly Ad of 9/16/12

Below are deal scenarios for the CVS ad for the week of 9/16 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.

Isn't the tide limit 1, so you would only get 1 ECB of $1.00 even if you buy 2 using the $1/2 coupon making it 6.88 oop +tax less the 2ECB from transaction 2 = 4,88 (plus tax)
if you use the .50/1 coupon, you will have 2.94 + tax oop less the 2.00 ECB from transaction 2, for a oop cost of .94 cents plus tax! :)

You're right-thanks for noticing that! I don't know how it got in to buy two, but I did figure the wrong coupon amount. I fixed it.
