CVS January Extra Care Buck Deals

The monthly Extra Care Bucks (ECBs) offers at CVS are not that bad this month.  There are actually three Free After ECBs items:

Buy Children’s Throat Cooler Ice Pops 6ct, Get $4.99 ECBs (Limit 5)

Buy NasoGel Drip Free gel spray 1.52 oz, Get $7.99 in ECBs  (Limit 2)

Buy Nutra Trim Weight Management chewing gum 48 ct, Get $3.99 ECBs (Limit 3)

To see the complete list of monthly deals check out this post by Alyssa at Kingdom First Mom.

Hopefully some of the rest of the offers will be on sale during the month and could be free after coupon and ECBs.  How do you do the monthly deals?  Do you get them all at once at the beginning of the month? or do you use them as fillers as the month goes by?
