Welcome, 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.

Although it will most likely not work for a $5 scenario, you can still print a $5/$25 CVS coupon.  Be sure to look for your free gift this month from CVS!

Don’t forget you can grab a clickable CVS $5 Challenge Button for your post or blog.

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

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

      I think the Ajax coupon may have hit it’s print limit. Sometimes will reset it, so I recommend checking back. I am sure it was a hot coupon for a free item! Sorry it was gone so quickly. :(

    I’ve looked and looked — I didn’t get a Bic Soleil coupon (8/9) like everyone is talking about. Did this happen to anyone else?

    I also missed out on the Ajax coupon too =( maybe next time!

    My friend bought 6+ newspapers and she only got one bic coupon. Dont know why but it was in only one of her smart source.
