CVS Shopping Scenario for Beginners 8/12-8/18


Here is your CVS easy shopping scenario for beginners for the ad that starts on 8/12 and runs through 8/18/18. If you did the transactions for the most recent sale, then you have $11 in Extra Bucks leftover to start the new ad.

If you want to see the full weekly ad and coupon matchups for the 8/12 CVS ad, go here to view them.

If you are shopping later in the week, I recommend that you check our CVS Category to see if there have been any new developments since this scenario was originally written.

    Will buying 3 Tides at $4.94 each ($14.82) trigger the $5 ECB when you buy 3??

    • Yes. At CVS, you need to reach 98% or more of the minimum amount to trigger the ECB. 98% of $15 is $14.70. Three Tides at $4.94 each = $14.82.

      This only works at CVS. At Walgreens, you need to spend $15 to get the reward.

  2. this is the same deal as the previous week? the covergirl coupons are no longer available? This is why I haven’t been successful with couponing bc even when it’s laid out for me, I can’t find, get, or print the coupons I need to get them…

    • As soon as a hot coupon is available to print, Steve will post about it here with a link. The best coupons go quickly, so if you don’t print them when they are available, there is a good chance they will no longer be available when you want them.

      Steve posted about the $3/1 CoverGirl Eye coupon when it was first available on July 25. He posted about a reset of that same coupon on August 6. He has also been posting dozens of CoverGirl scenarios for that $3/1 Eye coupon (and other CoverGirl printable coupons) over the last three weeks.

      The CVS scenario for 8/12-8/18 was posted here on Saturday evening. It is now Thursday afternoon. The $3/1 CoverGirl Eye coupon is long gone at this point.
