CVS Scenarios - week of 8/24

I've reviewed the ad and I have a plan in place of how to take advantage of some of the deals this week at CVS.

Scenario #1
2 ob (on sale 2/$9 with card)
1 Kotex Lightdays ($1.49 with card)

-$1.50 ob mfg coupon
-$1.50 ob mfg coupon
-$1.00 Kotex mfg coupon

OOP $6.50 (plus tax), earn $6.49 ECBs

Scenario #2
1 Kotex Ultra Thin with Wings (on sale 2/$9 with card)
1 Zipfizz (5.99)

-$2.00 Kotex mfg coupon
-$2 $2/$10 CVS coupon

OOP $6.50 (plus tax), ($0.01 after ECBs from Scenario #1); earn $5.99 ECBs

Scenario #3
1 Zipfizz (5.99)

OOP $5.99 (plus tax), ($0 after ECBs from Scenario #2); earn $5.99 ECBs.

You will be well stocked on feminine care products after these three transactions. Without ECBs to roll over from last week, it only comes to $6.50 OOP, less if you have ECBs from last week to roll.
