  • CVS Starter Scenarios: 5/8 – 5/14/11

    You’ll find a list of this week’s CVS deals here.

    If you’re new to The Drugstore Game, these new starter transactions will help you get your feet wet and show you how The Drugstore Game can save you money on things you already buy. If you don’t understand the transactions, read my Drugstore Game Primer, Common Sense with Money’s FAQ (which has a handy explanation of acronyms), and my explanation of How to Play The Drugstore Game at CVS.

    Be sure to sign up for a free CVS Extra Care card – you’ll need it for the following deals (get it in store instead of online so they give you the card right away). You may also want to pick up a CVS green bag tag to earn ECBs for using reusable bags.

    It’s another slow week at CVS – I’ve hardly set foot in there the last few months. You’d think they’d notice and email me some good coupons, but I haven’t gotten a single one, lol. At least if you need the following items, you can get them cheaply.

    Transaction Idea:
    Buy 1 Carefree Body Shape Pantiliners, 20-22 ct – $0.99
    And 1 Similac Ready To Feed, 32 oz – $4.99
    And 1 Colgate Toothpaste – $1.67

    Use $1/1 Carefree Product 05/08/11 SS Insert (will probably beep and need to be adjusted down to $0.99)
    And $5/1 Similac Product 04/03/11 SS Insert (will probably beep and need to be adjusted down to $4.99)
    And $0.75/1 Colgate Toothpaste 05/01/11 SS Insert

    Pay: $0.92 + tax

    Back before I began playing The Drugstore Game, I don’t think I ever got a full size tube of toothpaste at Target for less than $1 – which makes this an awesome deal!
