CVS if you are just starting…

I taught a coupons class last night to a group of really nice ladies! Hi girls! And, it has been a while since I have posted help for newbies at CVS, so here are some deals to help you with your first trip!

** Make sure you have a CVS card.
** Scan it when you first walk in, at the red price scanner, it will give you coupons to use.
** Don’t forget if an item is sold out GET A RAIN CHECK! You can come back later when they have it and still get your ECB’s.
** Put all the items in your cart first, than break them up into small transactions.

This is a scenario we talked about last night:

Transaction #1
(1) Soft Soap Body Wash $4.99
(1) Power Bar Energy Gel Blast $1.50

-$1 off Softsoap Body Wash, from the March All You (magazine found at the check out in Walmart) 
$0.75/1 Softsoap SPA Radiant Body Wash printable 
-$1 off Power Bar Energy Gel Blast Chews, SS 1/03 (January 3rd Smart Source)

Total Due: $4.49
Get Back: $5.50 ECB, you make $1 profit!

* Now, if you don’t have either coupon, your total due will be $6.49 but you still get back $5.50 in ECB’s for your next purchase.

Transaction #2
1 Colgate Total toothpaste on sale 2 for $5.
1 Listerine Original or Kids Agent Cool Blue $3.99
 2 of the $1.00 Colgate coupons from the January 2010 or February 2010 issues of All You Magazine 
$1/1 Colgate Total printable
Use the $1.00 Listerine coupon from the 10/18/09 RP or the 1/3/10 RP 
 Listerine printable coupon
Use ECB’s from Transaction 1 ($5.50)
Total Due:  $.50, get back $3.00 ECB’s

O.K. Now you have $3.00 in ECB’S either for next week OR you can buy some milk and get back a few more ECB’s. But I will probably buy a Razor….

Transaction #3

1 Quattro for Women Razor or 4ct. Refill – $8.99 each
1 Gallon milk $2.89
Use $4.00 off coupon from 2/28 SmartSource insert
Use $3.00 ECB from last transaction
Pay $4.88 Out of pocket get back $5 ECB for next week!
There was also a Quattro rebate form in the 2/7 SmartSource insert (up to $11.99).

Let me know how you did!
