$5.00 Challenge Rules


CVS Card

Bloggers: Please make sure at least one scenario is $5 OOP or less

1. Come up with your best scenario/scenarios for the upcoming week at CVS/Walgreens using the current weekly ad, monthly deals, and coupons available. Your budget for Out of Pocket (OOP) expenses on the first transaction is only $5.00 (either cash OOP or ECBs/RRs on hand).
2. Using up to (3) scenarios (we don’t want to overwhelm the newbies with too many transactions), offer up your best scenarios to “grow” that $5.00 into more ECBs/RRs to use in following weeks.
3. If you want to divide your $5.00 allowance over the 3 scenarios to make them work, that’s fine!
4. Be sure to list coupons by inserts and/or with links to printables to make it easier for everyone to follow along.

    I went to wal greens and got the 2 for 6.00 scope . I had two coupons for 1.50 off each. I paid 3.00 plus change and got back $ 3.00 in register rewards.

    I am wondering where some of coupons come from- for ex on this weeks at CVS itshows NatureMade & johnsons coupons but I cant seem to find? Are they printable ones? Thank you!

  4. Hi Jodie! When I do the $5 Challenges, I search for them in the Coupon Database here: http://kingdomfirstmom.com/coupon-resources/coupon-database. Sometimes the coupons reach their print limit after I have posted them, and they disappear. I apologize if that is what happened with those coupons. I hope that helps! :)
