  • CVS Cash Card Scenarios (Week of 1/15/2012)

    I was running uncomfortably low on toilet paper, so I was happy to see Cottonelle included in this week’s CVS Cash Card deal this week (spend $30 on selected products and get a $10 CVS Cash Card, which is pretty much a CVS gift card). The nice thing about the Cash Card deal is that you can do it in so many different ways.

    Here’s one idea:

    Scenario #1:
    BUY:
    2 Cottonelle 18-packs @ $10 each
    4 Coke Zero 12-packs @ $2.50 each

    USE:
    2 x $0.50/1 Cottonelle 12-pack+ 1/15 Smart Source
    4 x $0.99/1 Coke Zero product Facebook printable

    Pay: $25.04 + tax (+ CRV/bottle deposit if applicable)
    Receive: $10 CVS Cash Card

    Note that there have been a lot of reports about the Coke Zero coupon beeping at CVS – some cashiers have pushed it through while others have refused to accept it.

    If you only have access to one computer with a printer connection, and only one set of inserts, here’s another idea:

    Scenario #2:
    BUY:
    1 Cottonelle 18-pack @ $10
    1 Scott Paper Towels @ $5
    1 Kleenex Cool Touch @ $1.50
    1 Kleenex @ $1.50 {buy a 2nd Cool Touch if you have 2 coupons}
    2 Coke Zero @ $2.50 each
    3 Nabisco Crackers @ $2.50 each

    USE:
    $0.50/1 Cottonelle 12-pack+ 1/15 Smart Source
    $1/1 Scott Paper Towels 1/15 Smart Source
    $0.50/1 Kleenex Cool Touch 1/1 Smart Source
    2 x $0.99/1 Coke Zero product Facebook printable
    $2/3 Nabisco products 1/8 Smart Source

    Pay: $24.52 + tax (+ CRV/bottle deposit if applicable)
    Receive: $10 CVS Cash Card

    If you have any ECBs or gift cards from previous purchases, you should definitely use them to lower your out of pocket cost. Don’t forget to scan your ExtraCare card at the red scanner box – I didn’t get the $1.50/1 Carmex coupon, but if you do, you can use it to get free Carmex this week too!
