Karen at Frugal RI Mama has this week's hot CVS deals and match-ups. I'm highlighting a few below but you'll want to read her full post for the rest of the list!
If you're new to CVS deals shopping, please read my CVS 101 post and then check out the Newbie Scenario I've posted below.
I had expiring ECB's this week so I made a trip this morning to roll them. My transaction will follow Karen's match-ups.

I had $8.99 in ECB's to roll this week. Since I had so many ECB's I just did 1 transaction
Bought 1 Vaseline Sheer Infusion, $7.99, get $7 RR
Bought 2 copies of the CVS Reinventing Beauty Magazine, $.99 each (full of coupons!)
Bought 1 Cover Girl Clean Make-up Foundation, $6.19
Bought Cover Girl Ageless Blush, $10.00
Bought 1 caramel candy, $.33
I gave the cashier the $5 off when you spend $25 coupon I got by taking the flu IQ quiz
Use coupon for buy 1 Cover Girl foundation, get any Face Item FREE
Got $10.00 off for the free blush as per the coupon (no limit on free item on coupon)
Used $1.00 off Cover Girl item coupon from 8/30 PG
Used $1.50 printable coupon for Vaseline
Used my $8.99 in ECB's and paid just tax of $1.38
Received $12 in ECB's ($5 from Cover Girl and $7 from Vaseline!)
If you don't have any ECB's and you do the above deal with the coupons (without the caramel candy that I needed to use my ECB's), you would spend $8.66 out of pocket for the 5 items and get back $12 in ECB's which is a profit of $3.34 on the items!
