The CVS coupon printing center, a fun big red machine inside most stores, is printing 99¢ off any Brach’s Candy Corn for most everyone.  Turns out the candy corn is on sale for 99¢ this week, so make sure you grab an extra freebie while you are in the store.

Also the Colgate Total Toothpaste is an ever better deal!! Most of us got a $1 off coupon in the paper today.  Free toothpaste is great, but making a $1 is even better.

Don’t miss all the other CVS Deals this week.

    • Amy B.

      I kept scanning my card and it kept printing the Brach's coupon (and 3 others) over and over. I got 6 FREE…. and then it printed another one on my receipt!

      • As if you needed more candy after last week! We broke into our bag in the car on the way home… now the girls love drugstore shopping!

        • di

          what happen last week did i miss a deal on candy or what.

          • Mingle411

            Last week I received the $5 off Halloween coupon and I was able to use that on the large bags of assorted candies, ie..Hersheys, Butterfingers, KitKats, etc. These were on sale for $5 a bag, but when you bought 2/$10 you got back $3 ECB. I paid $2 for two large bags of candy. yummy!!! (AFter coupons and ECBS)

    • Sandra

      The free toothpaste will be great to put in the Operation Christmas Child shoeboxes!!!

    • Ruth

      Last night I went and finally received my $5 off Halloween. The clerk said it is good on candy too! I'm stocking up for the trick-or-treaters!

      • wendyc33

        not at my cvs.

    • Raynesmw

      I don't know if this was in the ad or not. They have their brand 2-liter drinks for 1 buck and get a $1ECB back. These are free too. I found them trying to do the 7-up and Cheeto deal, but my CVS was out of these by 8:30 this morning. I will give it a couple of days. I am pretty sure that vendors bring in these products where I live.

    • Iluvbnmom4

      I was able to use my $5.00 Halloween coupon on the Fall decor they had at my CVS!!!

      • Hayleyb323

        Are they still printing this week? Or was it from last week?

        • Rachel S.

          Yes, I got a new one this week. I got 5 small jar candles and the coupon worked.

          • Goochette03

            I got a halloween tin (that i can use year after year) and a jar candle with my 5.00 off!!!

            • Goochette03

              oh…and the tin was filled with three bags of kettle corn…one orange, one purple, and one green! the kids think it's awesome and it tastes like carmel corn….so good!!!

            • Hayleyb323

              weird I was hoping for one I got one last week but it didn't print today. Not even on my husbands card, and I didn't use that one last week. Bummer. Maybe I can try again another day.

        • di

          i got 2 this week 1 last sunday and one wed yayyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyy

    • I went in this morning and I got the 99cents off coupon for the candy corn. I only saw the $2.49 and needed a filler! but when I was checking out the cashier pointed out that i could get 2 bags for 99cents (after using the one coupon) and my total would be cheaper! yea! I love it when they help you out like that!

      • Debra

        Hi, I was reading your comment and I take it that the candy corn was on sale for 99 cents. I asked at the cvs that I usually go to and the manager said they didn't get any in and won't get anymore in. She said it was just a fall item, well it still is fall here in SC. That made me mad. Why do these stores show something and then don't get the item or items in. That's misleading and makes you want to call the corporate office and complain.

        • Coleman19972000

          Mine said the same thing today. They said that they haven't had it in four weeks, but yet it still printed out that coupon. I was disappointed!

          • di

            i no. and same thing with the tooth brush deal 23.00 get 13.00 bucks back no cvs store has not had any. and our coupon runs out 10-31-2010

        • Jacksonct07

          I had the same problem however my manager said that he would sub the cvs brand for the Brach's candy corn and allowed me to use the coupon I had from the machine. It wasn't the same however I still can free candy for my daughter.

    • Bholmes75

      I went in this morning and their coupon machine wasn't working.

      • Amy J.

        same thing happened to me……thinking of running down to my other CVS, scanning my card and doing the AZO deal and another Quaker oatmeal deal…..and hopefully some more free candy…LOL!

      • Rebq

        When that happened to me (the machine was out of paper), the gal working there told me to buy some little cheap piece of candy or just something that was inexpensive. When I did, my coupons that would have printed from the red machine printed on my receipt.

    • Shop Now

      I didn't get the candy coupon… but I now have about 2 years worth of laundry softener, lol

      • Annie wwhite

        Can you use more than one manufacturers coupons? please teach me :)

        • Shop Now

          One per item… I had 3 downy containers…

          “3 Downy Ultra April Fresh (60 load) – $18”

          so I could apply 3 mfr coupons :) and these were BIG ones !!!

      • Sari1026

        Where did you get those big Downy coupons?

        • almom3

          I got mine from the 7 Day sheet challenge that they sent with their sample. Not sure if Shop Now had the same ones but it looks like it.

        • Moe

          I received the same downy q's from signing up with vocalpoint.com

    • moneysavr1

      The coupon machine printed $1.50 in extra bucks for me!! YAY!

    • Bamabobbie

      Got my free candy today.

    • Megan_hendrix10

      not every one recieves the same coupons

    • Mslonas

      I FINALLY got my freebies today!! This is only my 3rd trip to CVS and Im soooo excited about what I got today, that I was telling my whole family and they thought I was nuts!! :)) but most of the “couponers” were thrilled and they wanted to get it too….For those of you not sure how FAR your extra bucks go, let me tell you: started w/$10 ecb- got (2) Colgate toothpastes

      (2) Quaker Oatmeal (btw, can use for the canister version too)

      (1) Dawn dish det

      (1) Dial bar soap-3pk

      (1) Brach's candy corn (FREE w/store coupon)

      **Used-(2) $2 off Quaker oatmeal coupons, (1) 75c off Colgate toothpaste and (1) 50c off Dawn det (and my coupons werent even that good!) and heres the KICKER—————– I got ALL of that for $8.50 in ecb !!!!!!!!!!!! I still had $$$ to spend,,,so I got ANOTHER Dawn dish soap and a candy bar and all I had to pay was tax (less than $2) and EVEN BETTER, I got MY $10 ECB BACK!!! WOO HOO~sorry Im alittle excited…lol

      • Mslonas

        I should point out I actually only got $9 ecb back, but I had 2 more Quaker coupons, so I went ahead and got 2 more boxes of oatmeal and got another 2 ecb!!

      • It's so much fun isn't it? I haven't really gotten anything exactly free yet..but last week I was able to “earn” a bottle of expensive hair dye with the amount i saved on stuff we needed :) My mom loves watching me get so excited about it and she loves that I help the budget and my boyfriend thinks it'll be great when i do this when we get married. :)

    • Stephen

      My store has the coupon but no freebie candy.

      • jessica

        I didn't think mine did either, but I later found it in a round display cart by the cash registers (instead of on the halloween isle).

    • sandraj

      I love cvs.

      • Moe

        me too!!!:)

    • Godot

      I was very lucky today and got those two coupons plus two more great coupons — (a) $5 of $15 out of the red box (good for three days); and (b) free Breathe Rite Strips 10ct (which has a price of $5.99). All out of a single pre-shopping CVS card swipe. So, be on the look out for these.

      During the past week, I also received two — $4 off $20 coupons by email — which arrived two days apart but both with expirations for today. So, a pretty big week of CVS shopping as I am sure you can guess, despite the fact that I could never get the Quaker Oats to print (bought them anyway).

      Many thanks to Southern Savers for continuously pointing out the latest.

    • JAGNUT07

      You can't make a dollar on this deal. The register is only set to allow you to take off(with coupons and extra bucks) up to the price. You are not giving any money back.

      • Shop Now

        Not quite… the toothpaste is 2.99… so the $1 off coupon makes it 1.99… that's the transaction you make at the register… THEN… you get a 2.99 ECB… So…. you paid out 1.99 and got 2.99 in return. Sounds like “money back” to me :)

      • Guest

        I did.

    • RobynLynn

      For the toothpaste deal, you can make a dollar. You get 2.99 colgate, use the $1 coupon, pay $1.99. You get back a $2.99 ECB. They don't adjust your ECB if you are using a coupon.

    • luci10

      I hadn't been in our CVS in a couple of weeks. My CVS coupon printer printed $5 off $30 purchase (had old one on hand already for first transaction), $2 ECBs, $3 off a boxed Huggies Diapers, $3 off any CVS Diapers, $10 off Craig 13″ HD LCD TV, $1 off 2 M&M Mars Fun Size Bags, and $.99 off Brach's Candy Corn. After purchase, I rescanned and got $1 off CVS Handsanitizer 8oz or larger, $1 off 2 Gold Emblem Pretzels or Nuts.

    • Wildwomen1982

      I also got from the machine a $1 off colgate total making if you use the $1 manu a $2 dollar money maker!

      • flower_mom

        Very cool!!

    • ab

      Didn't get a $5 off coupon, and the candy corns were 2.49 instead of .99, but I got the last two boxes of Kleenex with lotion on clearance for .12, so the trip was worth it!

      • flower_mom

        The large candy corns are $2.49…It is the small ones that are .99. HTH

      • jessica

        The small size is on sale for $.99. It is on the front page of the ad.

    • Laura

      My cvs had only 1 Purex left, so the guy let me get it for half off! So I got the 1 purex, the bag of candy corn and 2 colgates and my total was $0.77!!! And I got back $5.98 in ecbs. Awesome trip :)

    • Ptindal

      Just made my CVS run. It's been quite awhile since I've been so I didn't have any ecb coupons to use. Scanned card when I went in and it printed out $7.50 in ecb's! along with the Brach's candy corn coupon. I ended up spending just under $9 oop and got back $12.98 in ecb's! CVS just paid me $3 to shop with them today!!!!

    • guest

      Where are these coupon printers?

      • Usually near the front of the store but sometimes in the back near the pharmacy counter. You can always ask the cashier if you can't find it!

    • I wasn't too excited about this week's deals (although I do love that Purex 3-in-1!) until I walked in to my favorite CVS and found a whole cart of food on 90% clearance, and I just happened to have coupons for ALL of it! Yay! I ended up getting $140.59 worth of stuff (including diapers and pull-ups) for $13.20. Oh happy day! (click my name to see picture.)

    • sherbear1111

      I ended up with a $1 of 2 fun size bags of M&Ms when I scanned my card at the kiosk. The small bags were on sale for $0.50, so a bonus freebie.

      • I was just coming to see if I could find a coupon matchup for this but I must have been looking at the wrong sizes yay for more free candy!

    • Cindy

      Got the Brach coupon today and noticed on the drink cooler a small sign that said whenever you use your CVS card to buy 9 20oz Coca-cola products, your 10th one will be free. Not that great of a deal, but maybe someone can work it into a good scenario.

    • Alice

      I got mine plus a $5 off $15. woohoo. purchased 4 – 8 pack Bounty paper towels at $6.99 each, bag of candy corn. used the 5 off 15, .99 off candy corn and 10ECB. paid $13 and some change and got $10 ECB back.

    • Cathy

      This afternoon shopping trip. 8 cans Cmp Chunky Soup,1 Tone soap,6 Rnzt Air Fresheners,2 Purex 3 in 1 Laundry Det & 1 Cottonelle wipes.Used 1 4.00 off 20.00,1 free cottonelle wipes,buy 3 air fresheners get 3 free,1.00 off Purex and 3.00 off Purex (2) .50 off soup & 2.00 of 4 soup and 10.00 ecb. paid $1.98 and got 1.00 ECB

      • kidsallgone

        I got my free Cottenelle coupon the other day too and when I went to use it, the cashier pointed out that the coupon redemption price was less than the cost of the item; so I just had her take the Cottenelle out. I guess I'll have to buy it at another place that sells it cheaper. Weird cuz I buy toothepaste and candy and detergent and batteries and toilet paper and paper towels etc etc etc all for free, but when I have a coupon for something free, I end up not being able to get it. LMAO!! Still lovin' me some CVS though!!

    • Nurs_mom

      I bought 3 different papers and none of them had the Purez q. Is it a regional q??

      • Ladd4935

        I bought 2 yesterday and no Purex q was found. Not sure where everyone is finding them.

        • Brenda Davidson

          Purex Coupon $3.00 off one Complete 3-in-1 Laundry Sheets, I found in the RedPulm coupon booklet from the Sunday Atlanta Journal

          • Miranda

            I got mine from the Birmingham News on Sunday. Had one from a couple weeks ago to, but shamefully it expired before I got to the store :/ I have 2 though now, so that's great :)

          • Nadkins

            The AJC I got didn't have a RedPlum book in it. :(

      • Sg

        The State newspaper in Columbia, SC had the coupon.

    • Joseph Dorfmeister

      …just so everyone knows, cvs is pushing the coupon center by allowing people to only get certain advertised sale prices when they get a coupon for it from the coupon center (check out the front page of the weekly ad for more details). THESE COUPONS ARE NOT RANDOM OR BASED ON YOUR SHOPPING HABITS. If you have any more questions or comments please feel free to e-mail me at jdorfmei@suffolk.lib.ny.us. I am currently a manager at a CVS in Orlando, FL and was one in NY as well.

      • Godot

        Hi Joseph

        Thanks for that. This issue came up for me with regard to the recent Revlon Color coupon from the coupon center. It beeped for the nail polish, but the cashier worked it through for me anyway. But what caught my ear was the reason the computer gave for the beep, which she read to me. It sounded new, and was along the lines of what you suggest. If you have anything to add, that would be great.

        Thanks either way.

    • Wildtaca

      I just bought 2 packages of Purex laundry sheets, 6 Renuzit air freshners, candy corn, Colgate toothpaste and a nail polish. The coupon machine gave me a free candy corn and 3.00 off a purchase of 15.00 or more. My total before coupons and sales was 33.00 and I paid 7.80 and have a ECB for 2.99!! It was a great week for CVS

    • Went to get my coupon and the paper got jammed! Grrr…. no coupon

    • Aashby11

      Free Toothpaste and Candy… my life is complete!

    • Shelley

      Got my candy and toothpaste today…Purex, oatmeal, dial soap too…Great CVS week for me!

    • applejuicecook

      Got my $.99 coupon for candy corn on Sunday, but the candy was already sold out! My q was good until 10-11 though.

    • Caity

      I got my .99 coupon on Sunday and it printed out another one for me when I went in today! :-)

    • cb

      Jenny thank you for helping so many of us become better shoppers. Thought I would share my trip tonight with you in case it is worthy to pass on. My husband saw the craig tv on sale at cvs re 149 for 99. 13inch hd he went to one cvs but was out. I stopped by another one tonight and purchased it for him.

    • Couponmomlover

      I got a print out for 5.00 off 15.00 purchase, .99 for the candy and a coupon for 1.00 off 2 candy bars. I used all 3 coupons plus some manufacturer coupons and paid ONLY .94 for EVERYTHING!

    • 1stTimeSAHM

      They let me use this coupon on the Autumn Mix since they ran out of Candy Corn!! 3 cents is an awesome purchase :) Thank you!!!

    • Nichols_again

      The Autumn Mix was on sale as well and they let me use my coupon for that, but I didn't get a Colgate coupon..I was bummed. But, I ended up getting Candy Corn, Colgate, and the B1G1 Purex sheets for 3 dollars and some change

    • Bre_4804

      I got a email for a survey for CVS to day after finishing the short survey I got $5 extra buck coupon. Every one needs to check there inbox and spam.

    • MommyOf3

      Only got the free candy corn coupon printed out at CVS,but walked out of there with 2 colgate toothpaste,1 candy corn,4 Purex 3-in-1 laundry sheets and $2.99 ECB for a total of $3.19 out of pocket! I'm a happy camper! ;) Neither my kids nor I like candy corn,so it will be donated to the annual halloween party at my youngest's Day Care Center!

    • Lauren

      Geez…the Candy Corn would have been a great deal…if they had it in stock. I checked all three of my stores and none of them has it!! :(
