New CVS $5\$20 Good Through 1/16

I don't know who those folks are over at the Fresno Bee, but I love them. They've given us yet another printable $5.00 off $20.00 coupon for CVS and it's good through January 16th. This coupon can be used as many times as you want, and is not coded for a specific card. And, remember, these coupons usually will work without beeping for up to 2 weeks after the expiration date, but your store may or may not accept it.

Here's an example of how you can use this coupon with the CVS bonus pack deals to stock up on some cheap stuff! (Disclaimer: This is for illustration purposes only. I recommend you wait to buy the Charmin\Cottonelle because these often get put on clearance at very low prices in February!)

Transaction #1
2 Cottonelle or Charmin 20 packs, $12.88 each = $25.76
Use two $0.50 coupons from the 12/13 SS or $1.00 off 2 from the 12/27 PG
Use the $5 off $20 coupon
Final Price: Pay $19.76 and get back $8.00 in ExtraCare bucks, which you can use in the next transaction below.

Transaction #2
4 cans of Oust, $3.99 each = $15.96
1 Soyjoy 6-pack, $6.00
Use two "buy one get one FREE" coupons for Oust from the 1/3 RP (subtracts $7.98)
Use the $5 off $20 coupon
Final Price: Pay $8.98 (use the $8.00 ECB from transaction 1 and $0.98 in cash) and get back $18.00 in ExtraCare Bucks = $9.02 profit!

So now you have 2 20-packs of Charmin or Cottonelle, 4 cans of Oust and 6 Soyjoy bars for $20.74 + tax out of pocket, but you also have $18.00 in ExtraCare bucks that you can use on another purchase. So you really paid just shy of $3.00 for all that!

Now keep using those ECB's to pay in your future transactions to keep the actual amount of cash that you pay our down to a minimum. Welcome to the drugstore game!
