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. It’s a pretty slow week at CVS, which in a way makes it easy to get started.
