$5 & $10 CVS Scenarios for the Weekly Ad of August 27, 2017


Below are deal scenarios for the CVS ad for the week of 8/27/17.   There's no ECBs left at the end of the $10 Scenarios, because there's a really great non-ECB deal I thought most would want to take advantage of, if you don't, just skip Transaction 3.  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.
