CVS Weekly Deals & Scenarios: 12/19 Edition


CVS Weekly Deals & Scenarios
For the week of 12/19 - 12/27


None of this makes sense? Be sure to read my CVS 101 Tutorial here!

View the 12/20 ad here!

This are the transactions we ended with last week...

Transaction #1
Buy 1 Advil PM 4ct @ $.99
Buy 1 Merry Brite Holiday Bows 12ct @ $2.99
Buy 1 pack of tissue paper @ $1.99
Buy 1 pack of tissue paper @ $1.99
Buy 1 pack of tags @ $1.99
Total: $9.95
Use: $8.99 ECB from last weeks transactions
Pay: $.96 plus tax

ECB's Received: (note that duplicate product ECB's will combine...you will see this with the Tissue paper in this transaction!) $.99 from Advil, $2.99 from Bows, $3.98 from 2 packs of tissue paper, $1.99 from Tags: A total of $9.95 in ECB's back.

You more or less received all of the items for "Free after ECB's" plus tax on the $.96! You spent $8.99 in ECB's and you paid $.96 OOP which totals up to $9.95...what you have left in ECB's for the next transaction!

Transaction #2
1 bag of tags @ $1.99
Use: $1.99 ECB from previous transaction
Pay: $0.00
Receive $1.99 back in ECB's
Transaction #3
1 bag of Bows @ $2.99
Use: $2.99 from transaction #1
Pay: $0.00
Receive: $2.99 in ECB's

In the end you have purchased $14.93 worth of items for $9.95 (you used an $8.99 ECB, Paid $.96 OOP, and have $9.95 in ECB's left! It all equals out to basically getting everything for free again this week!)

The following week you will have a $2.99 ECB (bows), a $1.99 ECB (tags), a $.99 ECB (Advil), a $3.98 ECB (from both tissue papers combined) = $9.95!

Please know that these scenarios are just guidelines to help you better understand how to come up with them. You may have more or less coupons that are listed and you may or may not have any of the CRT's or maybe even a $5/$25. The point is to show you how to break each transaction down based on the ECB's that you have from the prior week to either break even (spend what you had exactly) or to profit (spend what you had from last week but end up with more from this week's transactions!)

Until Next Week...

Hi,
I am new to CVS and want to implement these strategies and have watched your tutorial but if I don't have any ECBs to start with how should proceed with the least OOP?
