The CVS gift card challenge gift card is almost done, and I have the feeling that last week might be the last week that I can stretch the card.  Throughout this challenge it has always amazed me how much you can get free at CVS, and I have Cheryl from Simply CVS to thank for all of the great CVS freebie alerts.

I was surprised to see that CVS Pharmacy, actually had a bunch of the freebies in stock. The only thing they did not have were the Colgate 360 toothbrushes, but I got a raincheck for these.

My Final CVS Totals – The Gift Card Challenge Week 14.

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.
