  • The Drugstore Game This Week: Starter CVS Transactions 8/8 – 8/14/10

    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:
    1 Schick Hydro 3 or 5 – $8.97

    – $5/1 Schick Hydro Razor from 8/8 SS

    Pay: $3.97
    Receive: $4 ECB

    Submit for Try Me Free Rebate

    Transaction #2:
    1 Dulcolax Balance 8.3oz. – $9.99

    – $5/1 Dulcolax Balance 14 dose+ from May 2010 All You
    – $4 ECB from previous transaction

    Pay: 99 cents + tax
    Receive: $9.99 ECB

    The rest of this week’s deals aren’t that overwhelming, so you can save the $9.99 ECB for next week, or roll it into something you need/want, like the Coke. If your store has scanners, be sure to scan your card – I’ve been getting $4/$20 coupons, which for me is completely unusual.
