I must say I’m more than a little disappointed this morning. What looked like a good week at CVS won’t be happening for me. Central Ohio did not receive the same ad as most of the rest of the country, and there are only three ECB deals in it. I’ll update the weekly deals with the three measly deals for the alternate ad shortly.
For now I’m operating under the assumption that most people got the full ad, and I’m creating my scenarios based on that. This would be a great week for newbies to get started, because the deals are simple and easy to use!
Transaction #1 (and CVS $5 Challenge Transaction)
BUY (2) CoverGirl Clean Makeup at $5.49
USE $1/1 CoverGirl Product, exp. 10-31-08 (P&G 9/28/08)
