5 Dollars for 40 Bucks Worth of Product at CVS 8/4-8/10

drugstore deal


Welcome to my $5 Drugstore post! Every Saturday I pick one, and only one, drugstore deal that I think is best for new people starting out with coupons. When I started out, I kept running between every store across town to stock up on the deal, only to realize two things:

  1. Using up precious gas dollars is not saving me money.
  2. Using up precious time is taking away quality time with my family.
This is not Extreme Couponing, but it is doable couponing for the rest of us! My challenge is to not use more than $5.99 out of pocket and see how far I can s-t-r-e-t-c-h my money. My pick these week is CVS!

Some notes about shopping at CVS:
  • Their cash back program is called Extra Care Bucks (ECB), it prints at the bottom of your receipt.
  • Use your store loyalty card every time you shop.
  • Scan your card at the red coupon machine inside the store for CVS store coupons.
  • You can use a CVS store coupon with a Manufacturer coupon on one item.

  1. Did not do as good as you, but just bought $59 worth of products at CVS and paid $37. Also, no affiliation with CVS but gotta love their customer service at the cashier desks. Always very nice.
