This post may contain affiliate links. Read my disclosure policy here.


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.

This week is a bit light on the deals, so it may be harder to stay under $5. Be sure to shop early in the week for the best selection.

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.

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:
