I wasn’t crazy about the CVS deals this week.  But here are a couple of things that you could take home for FREE and .99 for eyeshadow–is not bad either.  Click here for a more complete set of matchups.  I only reposted the exceptional deals.  My CVS strategy is probably like most playing the CVS game–using ECBs to buy products that generate an equal amount of extra care bucks thus taking home products without spending any real cash money.  ECBs do have an expiration date so if you need to roll them over for another round–who couldn’t use another free tube of toothpaste-or why not be thoughtful and send someone a free card!  Thanks to passionate penny pincher for compiling the matchups.  She has a couple of transaction scenerios on her site that might interest you too!
