by Nicole on May 3, 2009

Karen at Frugal RI Mama has the full list of CVS match-ups for you here. I’m posting the highlights and a beginners trip of transactions today so you’ll want to take a look at her post here for a full list of this week’s deals.

Claritin 20ct or Claritin D 15ct, On Sale $12.99 Get $3.00 ECB’s (limit 1)
Use $4.00 cpn in 04-05-09 SS insert
inal Cost: $5.99 after ECB’s

Zantrex 3, On Sale $4.99 Get $4.99 ECB’s
Final Cost: FREE after ECB’s

I get a lot of questions about how to start shopping at CVS to play the “ECB game”. I didn’t go to CVS this week as I didn’t see anything I particularly needed. That being said, it’s a good week to start CVS’ing and below is one shopping trip with 2 transactions that you can do if you’re just beginning. You’ll want to gather all the items and pair the coupons with them. If there is a line, tell the cashier you want to do multiple transactions and that you’ll wait until the line clears to do the rest of the transactions.

Transaction 1
Colgate Max Fresh or Max White, On Sale $2.99 Get $2.00 ECB’s (limit 2)
Use $1.00 cpn in 4-26-09 SS insert
Pay $1.99 our of pocket after coupon

Take your $2 in ECB’s that printed on the bottom of your receipt and do Transaction 2

Transaction 2
Adidas Action 3 Anti-perspirant, On Sale $3.99 Get $3.00 ECB’s (limit 3)
Use $1.00 cpn in 4-5-09 RP

Take your $3 in ECB’s that printed on the bottom of your receipt and do Transaction 3

Transaction 3
Kellogg’s Cereal, On Sale 3/$10.00, Get $5 ECB’s (limit 1)
Use (3) $1.00 cpn in 4-5-09 RP or printable coupons HERE
Use your $3 in ECB’s from transaction 2

Take your $5 in ECB’s that printed on the bottom of your receipt and save for next week or use on another transaction.
You just got 1 toothpaste, 1 deodorant and 3 boxes of cereal for just $7 our of pocket plus you have $5 in ECB’s to use on future purchases!
