CVS $5 Challenge

Although there are only a few great finds at CVS this week, it's still fun to do this CVS $5 Challenge. Also, check out Money Saving Mom for other CVS Deals. Here are 3 transactions with $5 or less total out of pocket:

Transaction #1
Deal: Buy 2 Colgate Total 6oz for $5, Get $2 ECBs, Limit 4
Buy 2
Use (2)- $1 off 1 coupon (from today's paper 6-28)
Pay $3 OOP. Get $2 ECB

Transaction #2
Deal: Buy 3 Cheerios Original for $6, Get $2 ECBs
Buy 3
Use (3)- $1 off 1 coupons from the Cheerios 10 in 1 Challenge
Use $2 ECB from #1
Pay $1 OOP. Get $2 ECB

Transaction #3
Deal: BOGO Irish Spring Body Wash ($4.99 each)
Buy 2
Use (2)- $1 off 1 coupon (from Smart Source home mailer last week)
Use $2 ECB from Transaction #2
Pay $1 OOP

Total OOP: $5 and no ECBs left.
But this would have cost $16 on sale without ECBs and coupons and much more at regular price.

Another great deal is the Coppertone Sun Care. Get 2 FREE after ECBs! It's not included in the $5 Challenge because the OOP is more than $5.

Deal: Buy 2 Coppertone Sun Care, Get $8 ECBs
Buy 2 Coppertone Ultra Guard Spray (w/ trial size Sun Shield attached to it), $8.99 each
Use (2)- $5 off Copperstone Sun Shield from here Thanks Hip To Save!
Pay: $7.98. Get $8 ECBs (making this 2 FREE sunscreen!)
