Spent $2.03 – Saved $13.50 – $11 Extra Bucks Back

I did not buy much at CVS this week, but I did roll over my CVS Extra Bucks, and I am beginning to have quite a collection. My local CVS store did not have any Reach toothbrushes, so it is a good thing I can hang on to my rain checks from last week. I was actually having a difficult time trying to figure out how to roll my CVS bucks, but when I saw that Cheryl at Simply CVS had bought Physicians Formula make up without a coupon, I took a closer look, and sure enough there was a CVS Extra Bucks deal to be had. I was still amazed (and so was the cashier) that I only did one transaction this week.

My final CVS Totals – The Gift Card Challenge Week 3.

The $25 CVS Gift Card Challenge

Cheryl at Simply CVS has challenged me to see how far I can stretch $25 at CVS Pharmacy, and she has provided me with a $25 CVS gift card just for this purpose. With the CVS shopping tips, coupon match-ups and CVS deals alerts from Simply CVS, I hope to be able to stretch the CVS gift card far.

Thanks to Cheryl’s help, CVS actually paid me to shop once again. Although I paid $2.03 out of pocket, I actually got back $2.50 extra CVS bucks than I spent.

Wth Cheryl’s help, I am already beginning to prepare my shopping list for next week’s CVS ad. To help prepare my CVS shopping list, I used the following Simply CVS posts:
