Karen at Frugal RI Mama has this week’s hot CVS deals and match-ups. I’m highlighting a few below but you’ll want to read her full post for the rest of the list!

If you’re new to CVS deals shopping, please read my CVS 101 post.

I’m not going to CVS this week (unless some fabulous FREEBIE deal comes up!) but I’m posting a scenario after the highlights.

Here are Karen’s highlights:

Nova Max, On Sale $9.99 Get $9.99 ECB’s (limit 1)
Final Cost: FREE after ECB’s

EARinse, On Sale $7.99 Get $7.99 ECB’s (limit 1)
Final Cost: FREE after ECB’s

Scenario
This scenario assumes you have no ECB’s. If you have some use them to pay for Transaction 1 and reduce your OOP cost.

Use 2 $1.00 coupons from the 11/1 PG
Pay $4.98 out of pocket (OOP) and get back $4.00 in ECB’s

Transaction 2
Buy 1 Bengay, On sale for $5.99, get $2.00 ECB’s (limit 2)
Use the $2.00 coupon from the 10/4 RP
Use the ECB’s from Transaction 1
Pay 0 OOP, get $2.00 in ECB’s

Transaction

For transaction 3 you will actually need to pay $1.99 OOP. You only get 2 ECBs from transaction 2 instead of the 4 you get from transaction 1.

The Glade are $.99 each with the coupon they are $1.23 for both. Plus the 3 oatmeals at $.25 each with the coupon and you equal the $2 in ECB's from Transaction 3. My math is correct!

Yes, your math is correct on Trans 4. Transaction 3 Bengay is $3.99 after coupon but you only have 2 ECB's from trans 2.

Your math for transaction 4 is correct. That I have no problem with. As I mentioned earlier it is transaction 3 that I have a problem with. For transaction 3 you say to repeat transaction 2, and to use the ECBs that you get from transaction 2.

So you would:

Buy 1 Bengay, On sale for $5.99, get $2.00 ECB's (limit 2)
Use the $2.00 coupon from the 10/4 RP
Use the 2 ECB's from Transaction 2

This would leave you having to pay $1.99 OOP, get $2.00 in ECB's

From transaction 1 you get 4 ECBs to roll to transaction 2. You only get 2 ECBs to roll into transaction 3, so that extra $1.99 has to be made up by paying OOP.

I fixed it. I removed Transaction 3 and now it works perfectly.

Thank you. I am not sure why it posted a weird half response with my last response.
