CVS Deals Week of 5/17

Here are some of the best deals that I see in the CVS ad this week. Remember that your ad may be slightly different from mine, so be sure to verify all sales before you go shopping.

This Week's Favorite ECB-earning Deal:
Dry Idea deodorant - $2.50
$2.00 off coupon HERE (Print 2)
Pay only $1.00 out-of-pocket for 2
Earn $2 ECBs on every 2 ($1.00 profit)
You can do this up to 3 times if you can get 6 coupons.

Hershey's extra large chocolate bars - Buy 1 Get 1 Free - $1.99 for both
Use 2 $1 off coupns from recent newspaper insert
Final Cost FREE!

Johnson & Johnson cotton swab twin pack - $4.99
There have been some $1 off Johnson baby product coupons in recent newspaper inserts

Kashi GoLean Crunch cereal - 2 for $5

Final Price $1.75 each when you buy 2 (limit 4)

Dial, Tone, or Coast bar soap packs (2-3 ct.) - $1.99

Nabisco Premium Saltine Crackers - $2.50

Final Price $1.50 each

Honey Maid graham crackers - $2.50

Final Price $1.50 each

Lay's Chips - Buy 1 Get 1 Free - $3.49 for both
** If you participated in the Lay's rebates, you may still have a $2 off 2 coupon.

Below is a possible scenario involving two transactions. This assumes that you are starting the week with no Extra Care Bucks.

Transaction #1:
Buy 4 Dry Idea deodorants - $10.00
Buy 2 Hershey's extra large chocolate bars - $1.99
Use 4 Dry Idea $2 off coupons (HERE)
Use 2 $1 off Hershey's coupons from recent newspaper insert
OOP: $2.00
ECBs Earned: $4 (Dry Idea)

Transaction #2:
Buy 4 Kashi GoLean cereals - $5.00
Use 2 Kashi $1.50 off 2 coupons (HERE)
Use $4 ECBs earned in Transaction #1
OOP: $3.00

This goes against my normal rule of never using up all of your ECBs, but you can't beat this price for Kashi cereal! For more great CVS scenarios that cost $5 or less, visit the CVS $5 Challenge sponsored by Kingdom First Mom.
