  • CVS Starter Scenarios: 9/25 – 10/1/11


    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:
    1 Bausch & Lomb Re-Nu Sensitive, 12 oz @ $8.99

    $2/1 Renu Sensitive printable

    Pay: $6.99 + tax
    Receive: $7 ECB

    Transaction #2:
    1 Thermacare Lower Back and Hip Heat Wrap, 1 ct @ $3.79
    1 Excedrin Extra Strength, PM, or Migraine 8 ct @ $0.99
    2 Softsoap Hand Soap 8- 8.5 oz @ $3 each

    2 x $0.70/1 Softsoap Liquid Hand Soap, 8 oz+ printable
    $7 ECB from previous transaction

    Pay: $2.38 + tax
    Receive: $3.79 ECB for Thermacare, $0.99 ECB for Excedrin, $4 ECB for Softsoap

    In sum, you’ll pay $9.37 + tax for contact solution, a heat wrap, Excedrin and 2 bottles of soap, and have $8.78 in ECBs to roll next week or spend on this week’s sale items (like Charmin for $9.77 or Bounty for $9.99). That makes your net cost just $0.59 for all of these things!
