Are you new to CVS? Not really sure how to get started and start using their extrabuck program to your advantage? Below is an example of a shopping scenerio from a sale from sometime in April 2010 you could do to get you started!
If you do not have a CVS card yet, you can go HERE to sign-up for one or you can get one in any CVS.
These are just club cards, they get you coupons, discounts and money back. They are not credit cards, and there is no fee to get one!
Once you get your card, be sure to register HERE so you can get emails with great coupons, sometimes for free items! Your first email will contain a coupon good for $4/$20 purchase!! These are great coupons to get ahold of!
So, here is a deal scenerio to help get you started. You can do your own, this is just an example of what you can do to pay the least amount and give you an idea of how to go about it!
Buy Dial Nutriskin Body Wash $5.49
And Dove Shampoo $4.49
Use $1/1 Dial HERE
$2/1 Dove HERE
You will then get $4.49 and $4.50eb printed on your receipt
Buy (2) Charmin @ $9.99 each
Buy Duracell @ $5.99
Use $1/2 Charmin from 3/7 P&G
Use $.75/1 Duracell from 11/22 SS
Use $8.99 in eb from previous transaction
Plus you will get back 10eb from this transaction
OR, if you got the Vocalpoint Puffs mailer, you can do this deal for Transaction #2 and make the deal better
Buy (7) Puffs @ $.96 each ($6.72)
Buy (1) Duracell @ $5.99
Buy (1) Bounty @ $12.99
Use $1/1 Puffs
Use (6) $.50/1 Puffs
Ue $.75/1 duracell
use $.25/1 Bounty
use $8.99eb from previous transation
OOP $11.71 and get back 10eb (Like paying $1.71 for all of the above!!)
10eb is a great amount to have! You can save them to see what deals come up the next week to use them on, but be sure to use them before they expire!! This is like money, and nobody wants to throw away money!
Also, try and use your eb on the purchase of items where you get more eb back! You always want to keep getting eb so you can keep paying little oop!
Oh, and do not forget to scan your card at every visit in the machine that looks like the one below! These like to spit out great coupons. These are all CVS coupons and can be combined with manufacturer coupons for an even better deal!
And, also keep a look out for their reinventing beauty mag. These are only $.99 and have great CVS and manufacturer coupons inside. They are normally at the checkout or by the photo shop.
Confused? If you have any questions, please feel free to ask!
