CVS Scenario Starting 2/17/13: 10 Items (You’ll Use!) For Less Than $5 + More

CVS is hopping with some fun deals this week!  While it’s not one of the biggest ads I’ve ever seen, if you’re a CVS shopper this is a great week to roll those Extra Care Bucks on some freebies.  Here’s my top scenario of the week:

Transaction #1

Buy 3 Clean & Clear Facial Products $4.49


Transaction #2

Buy 3 Colgate Toothpastes $2 

Buy 2 Always Pads or Tampons $3

Buy 1 Brookside Dark Chocolate $.67

Buy 1 V05 Shampoo $.82

  • Use (3) $.35/1, $.50/1 or $1/2 Colgate coupons from the 2/3 Smart Source insert or 2/10 Smart Source insert
  • Use (2) $1/1 Always from 1/27 PG
  • Use $10 ECBs from Transaction #1
  • Pay nothing out of pocket, get $5.67 in ECBs
Transaction #3 (if you need bath tissue or paper towels)
Buy 2 Sparkle Paper Towels or Angel Soft Bath Tissue $5
  • Use (2) $1/1 Sparkle Paper Towels or $1/1 Angel Soft Bath Tissue (recent printable, no longer printing)
  • Use $5.67 ECBs from Transactino #2
  • Pay $2.33 out of pocket, get $2 ECBs


Transaction #4 (if you need razors)

Buy 4 Gillette Razors $9.99

  • Use (2) Buy One Get One coupons from the 2/3 Red Plum insert or 2/17 Red Plum insert
  • Buy (2) $2/1 coupons from the 1/20 Smart Source or 2/17 Red Plum insert
  • Use $2 ECBs from Transasction #4
  • Pay $13.98 out of pocket, get $10 ECBs


Whew!  So, if you did all four transactions, you’d pay $16.78 after coupons and ECBs for a whopping 16 items that you really will use! And, if you choose to stick to just the best deals in the first two transactions, you’ll pay only $4.80 for ten items. Not too shabby!  Let me know if you see any hot deals we’ve missed. 🙂
