Welcome to the CVS $5 Challenge! Every Saturday night I will post my best scenario on how you can get great products at CVS for under five bucks.
Want to participate? 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. You can also use the new Ibotta app to save even more!
Here’s how this works:
Your budget: Start with $5 out-of-pocket cash.
Your mission: To grow that $5 into even more ECBs to use in upcoming weeks.
Here is my scenario for this week’s Challenge. Feel free to leave the link to your scenario in the Linky below, or if you don’t have a blog, share your scenario in the comments!
