CVS Grand Plan

Because there are so many CVS posts today with weekly deals x2 (thanks to CVS’s craziness) and monthly deals all starting on the same day…  I am putting this weeks Grand Plan in it’s own post.  It is also in the main weekly post too, but this way everyone can find it.

What is it?  This started as my way of showing everyone a way to roll ECB’s every week.  It is my exact plan for CVS though some weeks I just don’t make it.  This week with monthly and weekly deals starting at the same time I’ll be there Saturday night around 7pm rain or shine.  Want to join me? :)

Here’s my plan: (These deals can be found in the weekly list and monthly list)

**Some asked for a starting plan using no ECB for the first transaction, scroll down…**
