Shopping Scenario Sunday, March 30: CVS

Three items of note about CVS this week:

1. The CVS March Monthly ECB Deals expire 3/31;

2. The two deal-worthy coupons that have been out this month ($5/$15 from Wellness 360 and $3/$12 emailed from CVS) expire 3/31; and

3. The new CVS April Monthly ECB Deals begin on Tuesday, 4/1/08. This month is the Semi-Annual Beauty Sale, so there are tons of deals on makeup, cosmetics, and body products.

THE BEST I SEE

Buy 3 SoftSoap Radiant Spa Body Wash @ 4.99 ea for $14.97 (limit 5 total for this deal)

*use $3/$12 Beauty Coupon from CVS
*use $5/$15 360 Wellness Coupon
*use (3) $1.50/1 coupons from 3/30 Sunday insert

Total OOP: $2.47 (pay with ECBs if you have them)

Total ECBs Earned: $14.97

If you don't have the $5/$15 coupon or the $3/$12 CVS coupon - perhaps you're a CVS beginner - you can use this deal to earn ECBs to roll into new deals.

Buy 1 SoftSoap Radiant Spa Body Wash @ $4.99

*use 1 $1.50/1 from 3/30 Sunday insert

Total OOP: $3.49

Toal ECBs Earned: $4.99.

You've spent $3.49, gotten a great deal on the SoftSoap Radiant Spa Body Wash, and now you have $4.99 - $1.50 more than you invested on your above purchase - to spend on other ECB earning products.

I'll post more on how to use CVS and Walgreens to lower your budget tomorrow.

Thank you for including a scenario for those of us who don't have the $5/$15 coupon!

Unfortunately my paper didn't have the $1.50/1 among this week's coupons for some reason, but I do have a $1/1 printable.

You're welcome! There are also some $1/1 in recent Sunday inserts.
