Sunday Shopping List: CVS

*If this is your first time visiting my blog, go here first to learn how it works!*

See my CVS hints here if you are new to CVS and the Extra Care Bucks system!

  • Remember to use your CVS extra care card
  • Use coupons to get free/cheap items that earn you Extra Care Bucks that can be used like cash to buy more things with ECB's or anything else in the store you might need!

SS= Smart Source Sunday Coupon insert (dates found shown next to abbreviations)
RP= Red Plum Sunday Coupon insert
P&G= Proctor & Gamble Sunday Coupon insert

These are the best deals I see this week to take advantage of! For more deals go to Southern Savers

Get 3 ECB's, wyb Adidas Deodorant at $3.99 (Limit 3)
$1/1 coupon from 4/5 RP
Final Price= FREE

Get $2 ECB's wyb Colgate MaxWhite or MaxFresh Toothpaste at $3.99 (Limit 2)
*look for ones with free toothbrushes attached, they work too!*
$.75/1 4/26 SS or
$1/1 printable at (not sure if it's still available)
Final Price= FREE or $.25

Get $10 ECB's wyb $20 of Coke Products
-12pks on sale for 3/$12
-Vitamin Water 10 on sale for 2/$3

Here's a few ideas for this deal...

  • Buy 16 Vitaminwaters at $1.33 each (limit of 6 per transaction, so break it up, your card will keep track of how many you buy total!)
    Use 16 $1/1 coupons from the 4/5 SmartSource insert
    or use 8 $1/1 and 8 B1G1 coupons from 'Save Money, Save the Planet' booklets from Publix
    Spend $2.64-$5.28 (depending on coupons)
    Get back $10 ECB, so you make $ on this transaction!
    Spend $5.28 plus tax out of pocket, get $10 ECBs back
  • Or buy 6 Vitamin Waters and 3-12packs of coke products
    Use either 6 $1/1 coupons or 3 $1/1 and 3 B1G1
    Spend $12.99- $13.98
    Get back $10 ecb

    Like spending $2.98-$3.98 for all those drinks!!

Once you start shopping CVS and saving your ECB's from one week to spend on deals the next your out of pocket will be less and less!!

My plan for the week (which I've already done!):

Buy one Adidas
6 Vitamin Water 10
3 12 packs of coke
Use $1/1 Adidas
Use 3 $1/1 VW10
Use $15 in ECB's from last week's Scotch and Visine deals
Paid $1.70 oop and earned $10 and $3 in ECB's

Buy 2 Adidas
2 colgate
3 newspapers (they're $1 on Sunday now!)
Use 2 $1/1 colgate
Use 2 $1/1 Adidas
Use $13 ECB's from first transaction
Paid $.05 oop!! Earned $6 and $4 ECBs!


If you have your transactions figured out like this, always pay with your ECB's FIRST because then your manufacturer's coupons can take care of some of the tax...if you have $6.99 before taxes total and use 3 $1/1 coupons first then try to use a $3 ecb, it won't work because your total is only $2.99 before tax....but if you used your ECB's first and the coupons last, they would essentially take of a penny of tax (sometimes, it can be more, that's just a random example!)
