11/2 CVS Scenario for Beginners

This 11/2 CVS scenario for beginners will yield you 1 Softsoap body wash, 1 Speed Stick and 1 Renu contact solution – all for $7.97 OOP with a $5 gain in ECBs!

Our last Beginner’s Scenario ended with a $5 ECB and $4.13 in our Savingstar account. If you don’t have any ECBs you’ll just spend $5 more OOP (out of pocket) but will be right there with us for next week!

This scenario is written for beginners so it’s designed to be fairly simple, with no scanner Qs included unless advertised in the weekly ad. It also does not tally any items that may qualify for the beauty club, but you’ll want to sign up for it anyway because it’s free :-) You’ll want to read over my CVS tutorial before you go shopping so you’ll have a better understanding of how this all works.
