Variety of Needs Filled in My CVS Deal Shopping List for the Week of 6/8/2014

My CVS deals shopping list for the weekly ad of June 8, 2014 has some necessities at great prices.  My elderly mother lives with us and we do all of her shopping for her.  We try hard to find her deals, and this week CVS came thru big time.  She drinks Boost each day so the current extra buck deal combined with manufacturer coupons and a CVS scanner coupon makes for a great buy!  I'll pay just $12 for three six-packs and get $5 back. It will use up some of my extra bucks, but the per pack price is worth it.  I'll also be picking up the free Tena deal for her.

A special couple at our church will be celebrating their 50th wedding anniversary so I will be taking advantage of the Hallmark card deal while choosing a very special card for them.  It takes $10 of cards to get the $3 back, but I figure their card will take a good bit of that and I'll throw in two more lesser priced cards to get up to the $10 and use the $2/3 CVS coupon.  And again, some of my extra bucks will get used up on this deal.

A shopping list for CVS is more of a battle plan, once you are in the store you never know what will happen. You may get a good scanner coupon, they may be out of products or any number of things can go wrong.  But I always make a plan...and "I love it when a plan comes together"...but there are times when I am reminded that CVS shopping is often either "The Thrill of Victory and the Agony of Defeat."

I heard that it might be cheaper to buy the arm & hammer at Stop & Shop if you have one close to you. I bought mine at CVS but I had ecb's and my 25% off with the $3 off coupon along with cvs squeeze tube sunscreen $2.99 , $10 in father's day cards (with one free), honey bunches of oats ($1 off coupon) and 1 Almay lip gloss $4 coupon - I paid 18 cents! I would love for CVS to install a bell for us couponers! :)

No Stop & Shop here. And like you, using my extra bucks really comes out less cash out of pocket. I have a 25% off coupon and never have them--anxious to see how that works on my trip. You had a great trip! Thanks for sharing.
