CVS next week 12/21/08 Sneak Peek

I got a nice & early sneak peak at next week's CVS deals. There are a lot of freebies - A LOT, but they are only good on Sunday & Monday (December 21st & 22nd). If you have never done CVS deals or are new to CVSing you may want to take this one easy and really plan your trip out well. It is a very good week to roll Extra Care Bucks but can easily confuse the novice CVSer as well as many veteran CVSers.

My suggestion is to have your coupons ready ahead of time and get to CVS as early on Sunday as you can. Be prepared for low stock items, too. It isn't likely that your CVS will have 5 Listerines left on the shelves after Sunday morning. Keep this in mind when planning out your deals.
Oh, and please don't be a greedy shopper. Remember that there are others who have extremely tight budgets and getting some of these items really helps them. Don't let your excitement for freebies push you to be a greedy couponer.
That being said, if you have a specific use for something don't pass it by! View these deals as gifts from God and use them accordingly for His glory!

If you were able to do every deal to its limit and had every coupon listed you could potentially make around $20! Remember that separating your orders and rolling your ECBs can keep any out of pocket expense way down. You'll walk out of CVS with a very small cash expense and a lot of money in Extra Care Bucks.

If I missed anything or made a mistake please let me know!

And thanks to Hot Coupon World's Carlklaws for passing along this early sneak peek! It is much appreciated!
