CVS Scenarios - week of 4/17

I have to say that there aren't many deals at CVS this week that excite me. My husband told me that we were on the market for some soda if I could find a good deal. The 4/$10 Pepsi 12 pack after ECB deal isn't bad - but not really good either. I remember when a $2/12 pack was a good sale price. I have some ECBs available, so I might consider it, but I'm just not sure. I may just stick with the freebies this week. I must say though that I don't fully understand the Limit of 2 on the Green Bag Tag. You can still only use one tag per day, it's not like you can use it on three or four bags if you are buying that much stuff. Still, a green bag tag is a great deal and if you don't have one, get one!

Transaction #1
1 - Edge Shave Cream

-$.55 Edge mfg coupon

Total $2.74 OOP, earn $2.30 ECBs.

Transaction #2
1 - Paas Easter Egg Decorating Kit
1 - Green Bag Tag

Total $2.98, pay with $2.30 ECB and $.68 OOP, earn $1.99 and $.99 ECBs.

Transaction #3
1 - Easter Grass

Total $.99, pay with $.99 ECB. Be sure to bring along a bag and use your new G Bag Tag. Earn $.99 ECBs.

Total for the day would be $3.42 OOP, with $2.98 in ECBs to roll for $7.26 in product. A savings of 67%.
