CVS $5 Challenge



Every week I will be participating in www.KingdomFirstMom.com 's $5 CVS challenge.

There are just a few rules before you get started. To see these rules click here:





To keep things simple for newbies, it is advised to start out by doing three scenarios. However, after visiting my store and happening upon an unadvertised sale on, I had to do eight transactions.


Transaction 1
(2) Colgate Total Toothpaste $2.99 each
-(2) $1.50 Colgate Coupons
Total Out of Pocket (OOP): $2.99
Total Extra Care Bucks (ECB) Earned: $5.98

Transaction 2
(1) Gillette Fusion Gamer Razor: $7.99
(2) Extra Bubble Gum: $.99 each
-(1) $4 Gillette Fusion 2/8 P&G
-$5.98 ECB From Trans. #1
Total OOP: $0
Total ECB Earned: $3.99

Transaction 3
(1) Box 6 Count Soy Joy: $6
-$3.99 ECB From Trans. #2
Total OOP: $2.01
Total ECB Earned: $6

Transactions 4, 5, and 6
Repeat of transaction 3, but using the $6 ECBs from each preceding transaction.

Transaction 7
(2) Neutrogena Facial Bars: $2.99 each
-$6 ECB From Trans. #6
Total OOP: $0
Total ECB Earned: $10 (Unadvertised Savings!!!)

Transaction 8
(1) 100 Count CVS Brand Saline Solution Packets
-$10 ECB From Trans. # 7
Total OOP: $0

My husband needed the Saline Solution packets this week, otherwise I would have a $10 ECB to use next week. Oh well --- I can't complain after getting $56 worth of products for ONLY $5!!!
