  • CVS Starter Scenarios: 9/4 – 9/10/11

    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 Phillips Color Tunes In Ear Headphones @ $6.99

    Pay: $6.99 + tax
    Receive: $5 ECB

    Transaction #2:
    2 Hershey’s Air Delight Bar @ $0.99
    1 Carefree Body Shape Pantiliners, 20 – 22 ct @ $1
    1 Kashi TLC Bars, 6 ct @ $3
    1 Farm Rich Cheese Sticks, 10 oz @ $3.33

    Buy any Hersheys Milk Chocolate Bar & Get free Hersheys Air Delight Aerated Milk Chocolate Bar 8/28 SS
    $0.50/1 Carefree Product 08/21/11 SS or printable
    $2/1 Kashi product Recyclebank printable
    $0.75/1 Farm Rich Snack printable
    $5 ECB from previous transaction

    Pay: $0.07 + tax

    In sum, you’ll pay $7.06 + tax for earbuds, Carefree, Kashi bars, cheese sticks, and chocolate, plus you’ll have $1.99 in ECBs to roll next week (or spend on additional sale items this week), making your net cost $5.07. You’d pay that just for the Kashi bars and cheese sticks at Target!
