CVS Shopping Scenarios for Beginners 7/22 – 7/28

CLICK HERE to join our new "I am a Couponaholic" Facebook Group.

I am writing this scenario assuming that you didn’t do Transaction #4 last week so you should have a $5 ECB left to start with this week. There are two options for Transaction #3 depending on what coupon you have from the CVS Red Coupon Machine.

Transaction #1

TWO AMP ENERGY OR STARBUCKS REFRESHERS – on sale $2/$3
ONE CREST TOOTHPASTE – on sale $2.99
ONE STAY FREE PADS – on sale $2.00
Get $3 ECB when you buy two Amp Energy or Starbucks Refreshers
Get $2 ECB when you buy one Crest toothpaste
use one $.75/1 Crest Toothpaste PG 7/1
use one $2/1 Stayfree RP 7/22
use one $5 ECB from last week
Price at register: $.24, but receive $3 ECB and $2 ECB

Transaction #2

ONE CREST TOOTHPASTE – on sale $2.99
ONE REVLON NAIL POLISH – on sale $4.99
Get $2 ECB when you buy one Crest toothpaste
Get $3 ECB when you buy one Revlon Nail polish
use one $.75/1 Crest Toothpaste PG 7/1
use one $1/1 Revlon Nail product SS 6/24
use both ECBs from Transaction #1
Price at register: $1.23, but receive $2 ECB and $3 ECB

Transaction #3 – if you got the $2/1 Centrum Pronutrients coupon from the CVS Red Coupon Machine

TWO CENTRUM PRONUTRIENTS – on sale $9.99
Get $4 ECB when you buy two Centrum
use two $5/1 Centrum Pronutrients printable coupon (zip 33712)
use one $2/1 Centrum Pronutrients CVS Red Coupon Machine – watch expiration date
use both ECBs from Transaction #2
Price at register: $2.98 but receive $4 ECB

Transaction #3 – if you got the $5/$10 Vitamins coupon from the CVS Red Coupon Machine

TWO CENTRUM PRONUTRIENTS – on sale $9.99
Get $4 ECB when you buy two Centrum
use two $5/1 Centrum Pronutrients printable coupon (zip 33712)
use one $5/$10 Vitamin coupon, CVS Red Coupon Machine – watch expiration date
use $3 ECB from Transaction #2
Price at register: $1.98 but receive $4 ECB

Assuming you started out with $5 ECB from last week then you should only spend $2.45 – $3.45 out of pocket but you will have a $4 ECB left.

Extreme Couponing Tip: You can usually get two prints of most internet coupons. To find them in the easiest possible way, use our preclipped links that take you right to the coupon. Then come back and click the same link to get your 2nd print. This will save you the time spent searching for the coupon.

  1. Question Steve… I just want to know the rule of thumb for ecb as well as the usage of coupons as to its quantity? Is it the same as walgreens where if you buy 4 items = 4 mqs including RR? Because I noticed in T#2 there are 2 items, 2 mqs, + 2ecbs? That makes it 2 items/4mqs?

  2. Hi Steve,

    I am looking to do the Transaction 3 for the Pro Nutrients. I am thinking that it should only be .98 cents at register. 19.98 – 5.00 – 10.00(2manu) leaves 4.98 and then using your 4.00 ECB should be .98. i am really looking forward to getting the ones with the D3 in them. Living in Florida you would think there would be no need for Vitamin D but am always low. Can’t figure that out!!!

    • sorry forgot to mention I will be using the 5 dollar off of 10 vitamin purchase

      • Sorry about that Esetwo. That was my fault not Steve’s. It should have read use $3 ECB (Revlon) from Transaction #2, I have updated the post.

  3. Okay! Thank you again Steve…

  4. ..haha whose that stupid store who counts RR as MQ?..haha lol..
