Is it worth it?

It's hard to believe it's already May.  I thought this might be a good time to share with you guys something I've been working on.  Do you ever wonder if CVS shopping is worth it?  Well, this year I decided to keep a spreadsheet of all the $5 & $10 scenarios I put up here.  I thought I'd share what I discovered.  Below are the totals assuming you did either all the $5 scenarios or all the $10 scenarios we shared and saved the left over ECBs for the next week.  And remember the merchandise value is sale priced, and often the ECB deals are good sales, too, so it's really greater than that number, but even with sale price you'd have gotten the value of at least three times the money you spent.  So I'd say: "Yes! It's quite worth it!"

Five Dollars Scenario:


TOTAL CASH:  $37.71 + tax
EXTRA BUCKS REMAINING:  $2
MERCHANDISE VALUE:  $132.20 sale priced


Ten Dollars Scenario:


TOTAL CASH:  $113.59 + tax
EXTRA BUCKS REMAINING:  $1.50
MERCHANDISE VALUE:  $328.80 sale priced



You can always look at the bottom of any receipt to see how much you saved so far this year.
