This 11/9 CVS scenario for beginners will yield you 2 bags of Hershey kisses, a Hershey bar, a Colgate toothpaste and a single roll of paper towels – all for $0.00 OOP!
Our last Beginner’s Scenario ended with a $2 ECB and $5.12 in our Savingstar account. Hopefully you took my advice to cash out $5 paypal from your Savingstar account and then put $5 cash into your CVS pouch to keep your “CVS money” rolling If you don’t have any ECBs or Savingstar funds you’ll just spend $5.29 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.
