For this week’s package deal highlight, CVS is offering a $5 in ExtraBucks when you purchase $20 in select products. With good prices, coupon matchups and the bonus, this is an offer where you can really cash in.

As one example, buy one Dawn Dishwashing Soap, one Puffs Tissues, one Pampers Diapers and three 12-packs of Dr. Pepper for $20.97. When you use the CVS App to get $.25 off Dawn, $.25 off Puffs and $2 off Pampers, your out-ofpocket cost is $18.47. After the $5 ExtraBuck bonus, you final cost is $13.47.

Compared to a trip to Wal-Mart, the bottom line is a savings of over $12 or almost 50 percent.With all the stores offering all kinds of similar sales every week, the possibilities are virtually endless. If you haven’t pursued these offers, there is no time like now to start.
