cvs-5-dollar-challengeWelcome, my fellow CVS fanatics and newbies! It’s Sunday, time for our weekly CVS $5 Challenge. The place to go for simple CVS scenarios with step-by-step instructions.

It is a good week at CVS. All you need is an ExtraCare Card, a CVS ad, a printer and coupons to get started. Be sure to register your CVS loyalty card with Upromise for extra college savings.

If you are a first time visitor, here’s the lowdown:

Join me on Sundays as I host The CVS $5.00 Challenge!

Seasoned CVSers: share your best scenario(s) for the upcoming week at CVS.

Your budget: $5.00 out-of-pocket cash.

Your mission: To grow that $5.00 into even more ECBs to use in upcoming weeks.

Want to participate? Start by reading the rules here. Curious how to do multiple transactions at CVS? Read this post.


Here is MY $5 Scenario for the week of May 30th:
*coupons in red

Transaction #1
Buy 1 Ban Invisible Solid @ $2.99
$1.00/1 Ban Solid (SS insert 04/18/10)

Total After Coupon= $1.99

ECBs earned= $2.00

Transaction #2
Buy 1 Scope @ $3.99
Pay with $2.00 ECB’s from above

Total After Coupons & ECB’s= $1.99

ECBs earned=$2.00

Grand Total OOP= $3.98

Total Value= $6.98 with $2.00 ECBs remaining.

Keep rolling those ECBs for more savings!


Now let’s see what fabulous scenarios you come up with for around $5.00!

Simply post your scenarios on your blog, then drop by Keeping the Kingdom First and add your permalink to the Mr. Linky below.

Please link directly to your scenarios. Links directly to your homepage will be deleted. Linking back to this meme to share it with others is greatly appreciated!

    I went today and the $6.17 I put on my Benny card for my son’s antibiotic for his ear infection doesn’t count! I used a rain check from last week to get two Gillette body washes for $4 each, used a $4/2 coupon (5/2 PG), used $1 ECB, paid $3.44 OOP and earned $8 ECB. Then bought one children’s Claritin at $9.99, used $3 coupon and Ban at $2.99, used $1 coupon, paid with $8 ECB and owed $1.04 OOP. Total OOP $4.48!
