Making Plans for Next Week: CVS

I glanced over the CVS ad for next week and found a few things that stood out. I'm sure there are more that I will end up posting later, but here's a quick heads-up.

UPDATE: Links fixed :)

If you didn't get your Kashi cereal at Walgreens last week, you have another chance! Next week at CVS, it's 2/$5.00. You can print off 2 coupons for $2.00 off a box of any Kashi cereal and another 2 coupons for $1.00 off Go Lean Crunch. So you can get 4 boxes of good healthy cereal for $4.00!

If you go on Monday, the fun size candy bars are 2/$3.00. If you haven't already printed this $1.00 off coupon for Nestle LINK UPDATED fun size candy (you can also try this link if the other doesn't work right), you can print off 2 and get 2 bags for $1.00!

There is also a $1.00 off 2 bags of Mars candy that you can print from my side bar (scroll through if you don't see it). Get 2 bags for $2.00! Make sure to go on Monday though! I was only allowed to use one of these coupons per transaction (more than one wouldn't scan), so I had the cashier split my transaction.

You can get some overage with SoyJoy nutrition bars. Next week they are 4/$4.00 and you get $4 EB (ExtraCare Bucks-- printed out at the bottom of receipt for use on next transaction) when you buy four, so it's like getting them free! Apply this $3 off 5 coupon and you'll make some money! 5 bars for $5 - $3 coupon = $2 OOP (out of pocket) + $4 EB! You get the bars for free and come out ahead $2! (thanks Coupon Cravings)

Advil PM Liqui-gels are on sale for $.99. You can print a coupon for $2.00 off any Advil PM. Free Advil PM plus $1 overage! The ad says quantities are limited and there won't be any rainchecks for this one. I had trouble finding this at first. It is in the travel size section since it's just 8 count.

For you locals, the CVS on Mattis and Springfield was out of Mars candy and I couldn't find the Advil. I went to the CVS on Neil and Green and found everything though! The Advil was in the sample section and also up by the register.

My first transaction cost me $.05 out of pocket:

2 bags M&Ms funsize candy 2/$3.00
-$1.00 off 2 bags (see above for link)

2 Advil PM Liqui-gel 8 ct @ $.99 = $1.98
-2 coupons for $2 off Advil PM = -$4.00

The $2 extra from the coupon overage went toward the $2 I had to pay on the candy. I paid five cents tax!

Thanks for the heads up! I'm excited to head to cvs on Monday and take advantage. Thanks for doing the leg work!

Thanks for the update on the Nestle link. I also was able to get the Kashi coupon from here: as your link didn't work on my computer.
