Giveaway!

What better item to giveaway then a gift card to CVS???????

$5.00 to my FAV STORE CVS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Along with this giveaway comes a challenge for you the winner
to stretch that gift card to last you about 1o weeks and be worth
$1000 at the end of the 10 weeks!

You say NO WAY!

I would love to win. Since I haven't been able to drive because the doctor's won't let me because of my seizures I haven't been able to go to CVS in months. I miss the savings I use to get.

I love a great challenge! CVS is my favorite store and I find that every week I challenge myself trying to figure out the best way to use my ECB's, CVS q's, and mfg. q's with the least amount of $$ out of pocket! Bring on your challenge!

Ohhh... A CVS challenge! I love CVSing. I went to 3 different stores yesterday morning and came home with 25 items for $2.49 (after coupons and ECBs). I would definitely make this $5 last. Thanks so much!

Hmmm. I'm low on chap stick.

A girl after my own heart. I love CVS and a $5 gift card certainly could last so long! If you play CVS right it's like legalized stealing!

Fun!

Saph said...

Stretch $5 for 10 wks?!!! I've only had less than $1 OOP for 2 trips but all the others were much higher!!! I have a hard time accumulating more than $10-$15 ecbs at one time before using them all on the next 1 or 2 transactions!!! Would love to see a post on how to stretch $5 for 10 wks!
Please enter me!!!

Sarah said...

We have a CVS near us. I'd love a chance to win this gift card. My 29th birthday is in half an hour, and if I won this card, I'd actually treat myself to something with it instead of getting something for the kids. :-)

michelle said...

I do read Crystal's Money-saving Mom, but I have never stepped out and actually tried to use the system yet. This looks like it would make for a great opportunity to at least walk through the door of a CVS. Around here, it just isn't as convenient as other stores, but I understand the savings would be worth it. I would love to be entered in your giveaway.
