My transaction:

I went to CVS this morning because I wanted to do the 6x8 photo book deal and had been reading online that last year when they did this deal the stores ran out. I am going to post a separate post with my tips for doing the photo book efficiently! I had my $10.00 ECB's from the glasses wipes deal that expire this week and I wanted to spend them. Here's what I got:

6 X 8 Photo Book, On Sale $7.99 Get $7.99 ECB’s
Caliber/CVS 12″ Plastic Ruler or Wood Ruler, On Sale $.99 Get $.99 ECB’s
Papermate Grip Pens 8ct, On Sale $.99 Get $.99 ECB’s
Bag of Hershey's Miniatures for candy jar at work, On Sale $2.99 (my co-workers have been complaining about the lack of candy!

Used $10.00 ECB's from glasses wipes deal from previous week
Used $2.00 ECB's from previous week

Paid just $1.17 out of pocket and received $9.97 back in ECB's to spend in future weeks!

Newbie Transaction
If you're new to CVS and don't have any ECB's but want to start, here is a scenario for just $3.99 out of pocket (OOP) plus tax that nets you 24 items! Remember, you don't have to do these transactions at one time, you can keep going back to the store (these transactions rely on the 3 day sale items so go back between now and Tuesday night). If there is a line behind you, be polite and let the others go before you hold up the line with all of these transactions! Remember, this scenario is good only Sunday, Monday, and Tuesday!
