CVS $10 Challenge

Here’s the challenge: take $10 and buy as much as you can while taking advantage of CVS’s Extra Care bucks deals.

Tips:

  • Do multiple transactions!
  • Make sure to scan your card at the red Savings Center Machine. You never know what coupon you might get!
  • Split them up through the week, or do them all in one trip – whatever is easiest for you!

Here’s the scenario I came up with this week:

Transaction #1

  • Buy (1) Mars Singles, Airheads, or Mentos for $0.99
  • Buy (1) Propel Electrolyte Water for $1.29
  • Final Price: $2.28, get back $2.04 ECBs

Transaction #2

  • Buy (2) Nivea Men’s Body Wash for $4.99
  • Final Price: $4.94, get back $5 ECBs

Transaction #3

  • Buy (2) L’Oreal Haircare for $8.50
  • Buy (2) SheaMoisture barsoap for $4.99- BOGO
    • Use: (2) $2/1 L’Oreal Advanced Haircare (RP 05/17/15)
    • and: (2) $2/1 SheaMoisture Bubble Bath, Body, Baby or Hair Products, exp. 8/15/15 (RP 05/31/15)
    • and: $5 ECBs
  • Final Price: $0.49, get back $4 ECBs

Transaction #4

  • Buy (1) Colgate Max 6 oz, Total 4-4.2 oz, 2-in-1 4.6 oz, or Optic White Toothpaste 3.5 oz  for $3
  • Buy (1) Filippo Berio Olive Oil 16.9 oz for $3.99
  • Buy (2) Chips Ahoy BOGO at $2.37
    • Use $2 instant coupon at Red machine
    • and: $0.50/1 Colgate Toothpaste, exp. 6/13/15 (SS 05/31/15) [3-oz.+]
    • and: $1/1 Filippo Berio Olive Oil printable
    • and: $0.75/2 Nabisco Cookie or Cracker, exp. 6/27/15 (SS 05/17/15)
    • and $4 ECBs
  • Final Price: $1.11

Your grand total is $8.82 for twelve items with a retail value of $42.47!

 

***If you feel like going one more round, sub in this transaction for #4 and make the above one #5.

Your last transaction will look exactly the same.  This extra scenario will bump you over $10 up to $11.40, but you’ll end up with $53 worth of stuff!
