  • CVS Starter Scenarios: 11/13 – 11/19/11

    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 Colgate Optic White Toothpaste @ $3.49
    1 Blistex Five Star, Complete Moisture, Lip Medex, DCT, or Herbal Answer @ $2
    1 Wet N Wild Eye Liner Pencil, Silk Finish Lip or Shine Nail Color @ $0.69

    $1/1 Colgate Optic White Toothpaste Oct or Nov 2011 All You
    $1/1 Wet n Wild Eye, Lip or Nail Product 11/6 Red Plum insert {will likely beep and need to be adjusted down}

    Pay: $4.49 + tax
    Receive: $1.50 ECB for Colgate + $1 ECB for Blistex

    Transaction #2:
    2 Ocean Spray Cranberry Sauce @ $0.88 each
    2 Carnation Evaporated Milk @ $0.88 each
    1 Stove Top Stuffing @ $0.88

    $1/2 Ocean Spray Cranberry Sauce, 14 oz printable
    $0.50/2 Carnation Evaporated Milk, 12 oz 9/25 or 10/30 Red Plum insert
    $1.50 ECB from previous transaction
    $1 ECB from previous transaction

    Pay: $0.40 + tax

    Your final total will be $4.89 + tax for toothpaste, Blistex, a beauty product, 2 cans of cranberry sauce, 2 cans of evaporated milk, and a box of stuffing. You’d pay more than that for just the toothpaste and Blistex at most other stores.
