  • CVS Starter Scenarios: 8/7 – 8/13/11


    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.

    Transaction #1:
    2 Aussie or Herbal Essences Shampoo/Conditioner or Styler @ $2.49

    2 x $1/1 Herbal Essences or Aussie Products 8/07/11 RP

    Pay: $2.98 + tax
    Receive: $1 ECB

    Transaction #2:
    1 Skintimate Shave Cream @ $1.99
    1 Carmex @ $0.97

    $1.50/1 Skintimate Cream Shave printable
    $1 ECB from previous transaction

    Pay: $0.46 + tax

    It’s actually not a great week at CVS, but with this scenario, you’ll pay $3.44 + tax for 2 hair products, shaving cream, and lip balm – you could easily pay that for the hair products alone at Target.
