As some of you know, I am participating in the CVS Gift Card Challenge at Simply CVS. The challenge is all about stretching a CVS gift card as far as possible. Of course, I did not think that I was the only one, who should have some fun stretching a CVS gift card, so I am giving one away as well. See below, how you can enter to win a $10 CVS gift card right here at Frugality Is Free.

Today I went to CVS Pharmacy with a very detailed shopping list. However, they were out of the Reach toothbrushes, and they only had 1 of the Crest toothpastes left. I decided to put back the one Crest toothpaste and the Head and Shoulders, as I would end up paying more out of pocket, if I did not pay everything in one transaction.
I Got Paid $2 To Shop at CVS

The only thing I did buy was my already planned first transaction at CVS. A 5 pack of Allegra Allergy medication on sale at $6.99 with $6.99 CVS bucks back. Thanks to Cheryl at Simply CVS, CVS actually paid me $2 to buy it.
Transaction 1:
Allegra $6.99
– $2 Manufacturer Coupon
– $5 CVS bucks from last week’s CVS shopping trip.
= Free 
Saved $8.30 
$6.99 Extra Bucks Back
Thanks to Cheryl’s reminder of getting rain checks I got rain checks for both the Reach Toothbrushes and the Crest toothpastes, but I am hoping to go back in on Wednesday when the trucks come to get the following deal:
2 Crest toothpastes at $3.49 each – 2 x $1 MF coupons = $4.98 ($5 Extra Bucks Back)
5 – 10 Reach toothbrushes @ $1 each – $1 MF coupons = Free
5 – 10 Pert Plus trial 2 in 1 shampoo @ $1 each – $1 MF coupons = FREE
Head and Shoulders $5.49 – $2 MF coupon = $3.49 ($2.50 Extra Bucks Back)
$8.47 – $6.99 Extra bucks = $1.48 + Tax and $7.50 Extra Bucks Back
Unfortunately I could not do this deal today, but I am hoping to get it on Wednesday.
To help prepare my CVS shopping list, I used the following Simply CVS posts:

Whenever I need a little encouragement, I always revisit this CVS Shopping post.
