  • CVS Starter Scenarios: 4/15 – 4/21/2012

    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:
    BUY:
    1 Depends Silhouette or Real Fit, 3 pack @ $3.99

    USE:
    $2/1 Depend Real Fit or Silhouette CVS printable
    $1.50/1 Depend Real Fit or Silhouette 4/15 Smart Source

    Pay: $0.49 + tax
    Receive: $2 ECB

    Transaction #2:

    In sum, you’ll pay $1.48 + tax for Depend, toothpaste, 4 packs of gum, and a Kashi cereal or bars – plus you’ll have a $1 ECB to roll next week or spend this week, making your net cost just $0.48! You couldn’t buy any one of these items for that little at other stores.
