  • My CVS Scenarios This Week

    I try not to pass up free contact lens solution, since we use so much of it. So here’s my plan for CVS this week – I’m being optimistic that my store will have everything in stock and that the scanner will be working too, but the store I plan to go to is usually pretty good about that, even late in the week.

    Transaction #1:
    1 Complete contact lens solution $8.99
    2 Pantene $2.99 each

    - 2 x $2/1 Pantene from Vocalpoint
    - $10 ECB from a couple weeks ago

    Pay: 97 cents + tax
    Receive: $8.99 ECB for Complete + $2 ECB for Pantene ($1 each)

    Transaction #2:
    1 Skintimate shaving lotion $3.99
    1 Colgate Total $2.99
    1 Pantene $2.99
    1 Stride Gum 99 cents
    1 Neutrogena Ultra Sheer Sunblock 1 oz. $1.99
    1 CVS paper towel $1.19
    1 CVS cocoa butter 99 cents
    1 Chicken of the Sea tuna pouch $1

    - $1/1 Colgate from April All You
    - $2/1 Pantene from Vocalpoint
    - $2/1 Neutrogena printable (may need to be adjusted to $1.99)
    - $1/1 CVS paper product (apparently everyone gets this coupon from the scanner this week)
    - $1/1 CVS skincare (these are also supposed to be printing at the scanner for everyone)
    - $8.99 ECB from previous transaction

    Pay: 14 cents + tax
    Receive: $3 ECB for Skintimate + $2 ECB for Colgate + $1 ECB for Pantene + 99 cents ECB for Stride
