  • CVS Starter Scenarios: 2/26 – 3/3/2012

    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 Thermacare, Lower Back and Hip Heat Wrap, 1 ct @ $3.79

    Pay: $3.79 + tax
    Receive: $3.79 ECB

    Transaction #2:
    1 Colgate Sensitive Pro-Relief Toothbrush 1 ct or Toothpaste 4 oz @ $4.99

    $0.75/1 Colgate Toothpaste from 2/26 Smart Source or $0.75/1 Colgate Optic White, Total Advanced or Sensitive Pro-Relief from 2/12 Smart Source
    $3.79 ECB from previous transaction

    Pay: $0.45 + tax
    Receive: $4 ECB

    Transaction #3:
    1 Scott Choose A Size Mega Rolls, 6 pk @ $5.49

    $1/1 Scott Paper Towels 4 pack from 1/15 Smart Source (exp 2/26)
    $4 ECB from previous transaction

    Pay: $0.49 + tax
    Counts toward the gift card deal

    If you can’t get to CVS today, then you can skip transaction #3 and hold onto the $4 ECB for next week or spend it on something else this week. If you can get to CVS today, then you’ll pay just $4.73 + tax for a heat patch, premium toothpaste, and 6 rolls of paper towels. You could easily pay that just for the toothpaste at other stores.
