CVS Newbies!

Here are a few shopping scenarios for this week to help those of you who are just beginning. Your store might not have all of these items, so be prepared with a few different scenarios. However, these transaction are just to give you an idea of how you can start with almost zero outlay of cash in the beginning and gradually grow your ECBs.

Transaction #1
Buy 5 Excedrin at $1.99 each
Use 5 $2/1 coupons {here, here, or here}
Just pay the tax and get $5 ECBs for your next order!
Note: There are boxes of Excedrin that are shrink-wrapped together that are a special "get one free" package. These also "work" for this deal, so if you can find them, you could get 10 boxes, instead of 5!

Transaction #2
Buy 5 Essence of Beauty toe dividers at $0.99 each (make sure they say CVS on them so that they are the ones which are working) (This purchase is to help earn an extra $5 ECBs next transaction so hang with me!)
Use $5 ECB earned aboveSpend $0 plus tax out of pocketGet $5 ECBs back

Transaction #3
Buy 1 Essence of Beauty toe divider at $0.99
Buy 1 Softsoap Spa Body Wash at $4.99
Use $1/1 Softsoap coupon here
Pay with $5 ECB earned above Spend $0 plus tax out of pocket
Get $4.99 ECB and $5 ECB back (for buying third toe divider combined with two in above transaction)
Thanks www.moneysavingmom.com for the scenrios

If they don't have the toe dividers then you can buy the essence of beauty bags that are $1.49 each.
