$5 & $10 CVS Scenarios for the Pre-Black Friday November 23-26, 2014


Below are deal scenarios for the CVS ad for the pre-Black Friday 11/23-11/26/14.  "Black Friday" savings bonanza right here people!  Great/free deals on needed items (to free up budget money for the holidays) and candy for small gifts or stockings!  These are great 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 then, or you could use them towards some of the CVS deals for this ad or other sale items from the pre-Black Friday CVS Ad.

NOTE:   I’m not suggesting you check all of these out at the same time, personally I’d do one (or at the most two if it was slow at the same time). Then go organize some and let others check out.  If you have a store that is convenient for you to get to, maybe even spread it over a few days.  I tried to order it in such a way that the items in later transactions would be more likely to have a wider stock of, so going later in the week they wouldn’t have run out.
