  • CVS Starter Scenarios: 8/26 – 9/1/2012


    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:
    2 Childrens Advil @ $4.49 each

    2 x $1.50/1 Children’s Advil Facebook printable

    Pay: $5.98 + tax
    Receive: $4 ECB

    Transaction #2:
    1 Finesse Self Adjusting Shampoo/Conditioner or Styler @ $2.99
    1 Kraft Mayo or Miracle Whip @ $2

    $1/1 Kraft Mayo or Miracle Whip Dressing printable
    $4 ECB from previous transaction

    Pay: $0.99 + tax
    Receive: $2 ECB for Finesse

    At this point, you’ll have paid $6.97 + tax for 2 Children’s Advil, a hair care product, and Kraft mayo/Miracle Whip – plus you’ll have a $2 ECB to roll next week or spend this week, making your net cost just $4.97 + tax. You’d pay that just for the Advil at other stores!
