$5 & $10 CVS Scenarios for the Weekly Ad of August 30, 2015


Below are deal scenarios for the CVS ad for the week of 8/30/2015.  PLEASE NOTE:  I used a number of printable coupons here, if you plan to do this, please print them before Monday when they may no longer be available due to the end of the month!  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 this week or other sale items from this week's CVS Weekly Ad.
