$5 & $10 CVS Scenarios for the Weekly Ad of April 17, 2016


Below are deal scenarios for the CVS ad for the week of 4/17/16.   PLEASE NOTE:  There is an optional Transaction A that would actually be a "money maker", but it seems to be regional, so be sure to see if it's in your area before you do it! :)  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.
