If you are new to CVS it can be a challenge to learn how to make your Extra Care Bucks (ECBs) work for you. Below you’ll find a few transactions to help you get the most out of your money and ECBs. You can do these all in a single trip (with multiple transactions) or in a few trips.
$ 5.00 5 G Series o2 Perform (at $1 each)
$ 5.00 out of pocket plus get $5 in ECB
$7.99 Playtex Gentle Glide Tampons
– 5.00 ECB earned from Transaction #1
– 2.00 $2/1 Playtex Gentle Glide Tampons 8/14/2011 SS Insert (exp 10/9/2011)

– 1.50 $1.50/1 Colgate Sensitive Pro-Relief Toothpaste, exp. 8/31/11 (SS 07/31/11)
$0.00 out of pocket + get $1.50 in ECB
You grand total out of pocket will be $5.99 and you’ll still have $1.50 in ECB to spend, resulting in a net total of $4.49 spent for all items (Note that this week is really NOT the best at CVS).
