$5 & $10 Scenarios for the Weekly Ad of 11/11/2012

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

Please tell me what you mean in the first deal when you say "be sure to match coupons"? Just curious as to why you wouldnt use two 75©off coupons?

Thanks for your questions:

1) Sometimes coupons only apply to (or exclude) certain types of toothpaste, so when you go to pick your types of coupons you need to make sure the kind you pick is covered by your coupon.

2)I normally only use 1 of each type of insert coupon because that's all many people have access to.

Hope this helps!

Hi Cheryl & Sarah! Just a quick question - I've always gotten your emails fine & when I look at your site it always looked fine, but recently some of your transactions have come over looking "strange". I copy & pasted one here so you can see what I'm seeing:
Transaction 2:

Buy 1 (one) Gillette Proglide razor 1 ct $9.99 Get $4 ECB
Use 1 (one) $4/1 Gillette Fusion ProGlide Razor, (RP 10/07/12)


Use $6 ECB from Transaction 1


CASH: $0 + tax
EXTRA BUCKS RECEIVED: $4
MERCHANDISE VALUE: $9.99 sale priced

SO, I'm getting quite a few "supportLineBreakNewLine" and "endif" lines. I'm just wondering if something has changed....or if it's just coming across like this to me, etc. Also, just wanted to make you aware in case you didn't realize it was happening and it's not just me. So, wondering if the posts are coming through to others looking like this. Just thought I'd let you know - not complaining - I can still figure out what you mean! :) Thanks again, and as usual, for all your help with (sometimes difficult!) CVS shopping!
Thank you,
Tammy

Hi, Tammy! I use Blogger platform and have trouble from day one with spacing! I thought I had it under control, and actually I am seeing it fine here. But often cutting & pasting the coupons in can wreck havoc! I go over them a couple of times, saving and closing the window and re-opening the draft to double check (sometimes that brings out the hidden extra lines) and fix them if I see them. You'll probably see them sometimes and sometimes not. Sorry for the craziness and thanks for letting us know.

Hi Cheryl! Again, I wasn't complaining, just wasn't aware if you knew what was happening! And, wouldn't you know it, the "example" I sent to you turned out fine on my end when I read it! Whatever you are doing always helps me out so please just keep it up & it's easy enough to figure out!
Thanks again - Tammy
