It took some time for me to be able to do this. I started out by purchasing items that were on sale and provided extra bucks back after purchase. For instance, I purchased Cottonelle and used some coupons that I had which reduced the price, plus I received $2 in extra bucks back for each package I purchased. It was a slow process. I then took those extra bucks and applied them toward more purchases, therefore earning more extra bucks. Right now I have $18 in extra bucks after my purchases yesterday. I will now purchase items that are on sale and will pay attention to the extra bucks that are offered with the sale items so that I can maintain a consistant level of extra bucks. Trust me, it wasn’t an easy start. If you visit my link to Money Saving Mom and look for CVS posts that will help more. Good luck.
