  • CVS Starter Scenarios: 10/16 – 10/22/11

    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 Idea:
    1 Bounty Extra Soft Paper Towels, 12 pk @ $13
    3 Puffs Plus Lotion, 124 ct @ $1.50 each
    2 Wisk 2x Ultra or HE Liuqid Laundry Detergent, 26-32 oz @ $4.99
    2 Kellogg’s Raisin Bran Cereal @ 2/$4

    $0.25/1 Bounty Paper Towels or Napkins 10/16 P&G insert
    $0.25/1 Puffs Facial Tissue, 3 Single Pack 10/16 P&G insert
    2 x $2/1 Wisk Laundry Detergent 10/16 Red Plum insert
    $1/2 Kelloggs Raisin Bran, Raisin Bran Crunch or Raisin Bran Extra 9/1 Red Plum insert

    Pay: $25.98
    Receive: $10 gift card (coupon prints on receipt; check store for participating gift cards)

    That’s like paying $15.98 for all of these items, which you couldn’t do at any other store. There’s a limit of 5 gift cards, so depending on how many coupons you have and what you need, you could keep rolling the gift card. If you have the coupons, the best scenario for the gift card promo is:

    Transaction Idea:
    6 Wisk detergent @ $4.99

    6 x $2/1 Wisk Laundry Detergent 10/16 Red Plum insert

    Pay: $17.94
    Receive: $10 gift card

    That’s like paying $1.32 per bottle, which is an incredible deal on laundry detergent.
