CVS Starter Scenarios: 7/31 - 8/6/11

You'll find a list of this week's CVS deals here.

If you're new to The Drugstore Game, these new starter transactions will help you get your feet wet and show you how The Drugstore Game can save you money on things you already buy. If you don't understand the transactions, read my Drugstore Game Primer, Common Sense with Money's FAQ (which has a handy explanation of acronyms), and my explanation of How to Play The Drugstore Game at CVS.

Be sure to sign up for a free CVS Extra Care card - you'll need it for the following deals (get it in store instead of online so they give you the card right away). You may also want to pick up a CVS green bag tag to earn ECBs for using reusable bags.

Transaction #1:
BUY:
2 Skinny Cow Single Crisp or Clusters Candy @ $0.99 each
1 Bic Soleil Shimmer Razor Starter Kit or Cartridges 4 ct @ $5.99

USE:
B1G1 Skinny Cow Chocolate Candy Singles 7/31 Red Plum or printable
$3/1 Bic Soleil Disposable or Soleil System Razor 7/10 Smart Source

Pay: $2.99 $3.98 + tax
Receive: $0.99 ECB for Skinny Cow + $3 ECB for Bic

Transaction #2:
BUY:
1 Gillette Fusion ProGlide Power or Manual Razor @ $9.99

USE:
$4/1 Gillette Fusion ProGlide Razor 7/31 P&G insert
$0.99 ECB from previous transaction
$3 ECB from previous transaction

Pay: $2 + tax
Receive: $5 ECB

Transaction #3:
BUY:
3 Puffs tissue @ $0.88 each
1 Dawn dish detergent @ $0.99
1 Q-tips @ $1.66
1 Quaker Chewy bars 3-pack @ $0.88

USE:
$0.25/3 Puffs tissue 7/31 P&G insert
$0.50/1 Dawn 7/31 P&G insert
$0.30/1 Q-tips 7/31 Red Plum
$5 ECB from previous transaction

Pay: $0.12 + tax

Your total expense is $5.11 $6.10 + tax for 2 candy bars, disposable razors, a Fusion razor, three boxes of tissue, dish detergent, cotton swabs, and granola bars. The tissue alone could easily cost you that much at other stores. That's why I say you can get so much more for the same amount of money in The Drugstore Game. :)
