CVS Love for the week of Jan 16

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!

CVS this week

Compared to Black Friday, CVS this weak is a bit weak but if you have something in mind you want to get there the American Express gift card plan might do well.  I’ve never done an American Express prepaid gift card but as long as you don’t get  a fee for using them, this might be a good option.  Here is a link to some things you need to know about prepaid cards.  Without fees, you could buy 3 to pay your bills with and you just score an extra 10 ECB.  However, I’m a little leery….if you have experience with American Express Prepaid Gift Cards you want to share–please share in a comment.  Have you had issues with fees? etc.  At any rate…Here’s CVS this week–the best of the deals!  Thanks for sharing thrifty mama.
