    FacebookTwitterPinterest

    If you’re new to playing The Drugstore Game, these transactions should help you get started. If you don’t understand the transactions, read my Drugstore Game Primer, Common Sense with Money’s FAQ, and my explanation of How to Play The Drugstore Game at CVS.

    You’ll find a list of this week’s CVS deals here. In these transactions, I assume that you do not have any ECBs to start with.

    Transaction #1:
    2 Pledge Fabric Sweeper $2.50 each
    2 Oust Surface Disinfectant & Air Sanitizer $2.50 each

    – 2 x $1/1 Pledge Fabric Sweeper from 5/2 SS
    – 2 x $1/1 Oust Surface Disinfectant & Air Sanitizer from 5/9 SS

    Pay: $6 + tax
    Receive: $5 ECBs

    Transaction #2:
    1 Kodak Picture Movie DVD $9.99

    – $5 ECB from previous transaction

    Pay: $4.99 + tax
    Receive: $9.99 ECBs

    Transaction #3:
    1 Banana Boat Suncare $9.99
    1 Colgate Plus Toothbrush $0.89
    1 Betty Crocker Warm Delights $0.88
    1 filler, e.g., VO5 shampoo or conditioner $0.77

    – $1/1 Banana Boat Suncare Product from 6/27 or 5/23 SS
    – $0.75/1 Colgate Toothbrush from 6/27 SS
    – $0.75/1 Betty Crocker Delights from 5/2 or 6/27 SS
    – $9.99 ECB from previous transaction

    Pay: 4 cents + tax
    Receive: $7 ECB from Banana Boat

    Thanks to Gina at Moneywise Moms for pointing out that you need to buy two Banana Boat products to get $7 in ECBs!

    Note: You can add the B1G1 Stayfree deal to get two free Stayfree products to any transaction – it won’t affect your out of pocket calculations except for the sales tax.
