My CVS Scenarios for the Week of 6/27/10!

**If you're new to the CVS game this post won't make much sense to you. Go here first to read my Beginner's Guide to CVS and learn everything you need to know. Then read the rest of this post for tips on how to make the game work for you, too!

Looking like a great week at CVS this week! I am especially excited about cheap laundry soap, tons of free maxi pads, and free M&Ms for the kiddos! The Scrubbing Bubbles toilet gel kits will be nice, too, since I usually don't buy stuff like that, I just clean our 2 toilets the old fashioned way. So when I can get things like this for free, it's a nice little luxury. :)

Transaction 1:

$17.98 2 Schick Hydro 3 razors @ $8.99/ea
$3.49 Shick Hydro shaving gel
(earns $10 ECBs wys $20, limit 1)

$21.47 before coupons

-$4/$20 CVS coupon*
-$10, two $5/1 Schick Hydro (from 6/13 SS)
-$1/1 Schick Hydro shave gel (from 6/13 SS)

$6.47 after coupons, earns $10 ECBs

$10, 2 John Frieda shampoo or conditioner (earns $3 ECBs wys $10, limit 5 for the month)
$3.79 2 Stayfree BOGO
$3.79 2 Stayfree BOGO
$3, 2 Xtra Laundry Detergents

$20.58 before coupons

-$4/$20 CVS coupon*
-$2 John Frieda hair care (from 6/6 SS)
-$2 John Frieda hair care (from 6/6 SS)
-$3.79 BOGO Stayfree (from 6/27 SS)
-$3.79 BOGO Stayfree (from 6/27 SS)
-$2, two $1/1 Xtra Detergent (from 6/6 SS)

$3 after coupons, earns $3 ECBs
(If you still have some $3 John Frieda coupons from 6/6 P&G, or the $2.50/1 printables, this would take $1 or $2 off your total!)

$9.99 Kodak Picture Movie DVD (earns $9.99 ECBs, limit 1)
$10, 4 Scrubbing Bubbles toilet cleaning gel kit 2/$5 (earns $5 ECBs wys $10, limit 1)

$19.99 before coupons

-$4/$20 CVS print*
-$4, four $1/1 Scrubbing Bubbles Toilet Cleaning product (from 6/6 SS)
Buy one toilet cleaning gel, get Fresh Brush 2-in-1 Starter or refill free (If your CVS carries these, throw 2 of them onto your order and get them free with this coupon)

$11.99 after coupons, earns $14.99 ECBs

If you get 4 papers this weekend, like me, you'll have 2 more coupons for the BOGO Stayfree, so you can add 4 more packages (2 per coupon) to any of your transactions and get them free.

Also, single size packs of Pretzel M&Ms are BOGO this week @ $0.88 for 2. There will be a BOGO coupon in this weekend's Red Plum insert which is valid up to $0.79, so it will take $0.79 off, making it only $0.10 for every 2 packs you buy. So you can throw 8 packages onto your transactions and use 4 BOGO coupons to get all 8 packs for $0.40. :)

*All of the above transactions utilize the $4/$20 CVS coupon that you get when you register a CVS card number for the email list. These coupons aren't hard to get multiples of, but I'm not going to tell you how to do it. :) Mainly because I don't want CVS catching on and canceling the email offers. But if I figured it out, you can too. It doesn't take much thinking or much time (and no tech-smarts or coupon-altering is necessary).
