    I’m not seeing any great true starter scenarios at CVS this week, but there’s an Olay deal that’s a big moneymaker if you have enough coupons and can get there by July 31:

    BUY:
    4 Olay Daily Cleansers @ $3.74 each
    4 Olay body wash @ $5.99 each

    USE:
    4 x Buy Olay Daily Facials or Cleansers, Get Olay Body Wash Free from 7/29 P&G insert

    Pay: $8.96 + tax
    Receive: $5 ECB
    Submit for $10 mail-in rebate when you spend $30+ on Olay

    Prices may vary somewhat by store, but based on these prices, you’ll make a pre-tax profit of $6.04 for buying 8 Olay products!
