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, but still a bit tough to stay under $5 OOP.

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 September 26th:
*coupons in red

Transaction #1
Buy 3 Welch’s Juice (12-16 oz.) @ $1.33 ea.

Total= $4

ECBs earned= $1.00

Transaction #2
Buy 2 Welch’s Grape Juice 64-oz. @ $3.00 ea.
(2) $1/1 Select Welch’s Juices Coupon (SS insert 09/12/10)
Pay with $1.00 ECB’s from above

Total After Coupons & ECB’s= $3.00

ECBs earned=$1.00

Grand Total OOP= $7.00

Total Value= $10.00 with $1.00 ECBs remaining.

Keep rolling those ECBs for more savings!


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

    I haven’t been yet but I am excited for the Oral B Vitality toothbrush that is usually $23. There is a $10 coupon in Sunday’s paper and you receive a $10.00 ECB.

    I have a $5 off $25 coupon which I will add something for just two dollars to my bill. I also have a $5.00 ECB waiting from last week to use, subtract the $10 MF coupon. It looks like I will get $20 off, OOP only $5.00 and get ECB back for $10!! Fun!
