        I don’t see anything interesting either.  Not worth stopping in just for the toothpaste…I already have a bunch…maybe next week!

      Where do I get the winter CVS reinventing beauty coupons??

      • VP22

        They are in the CVS Reinventing Beauty Magazine sold at CVS for .99. They can be hard to find because a lot of stores never get them but if your store does carry them, they can usually be found at the magazine rack by the cash register, near the cosmetics or in the regular magazine section.

      • azd18

        also, just double check which issue/season it is. i grabbed 2 without looking, and it ended up being old (winter 2010/2011) and everything was expired :( 

        • VP22

          Good point. That happened to me once before too.

        • Crownstar

          if you have your receipt you can return and get your 2 bucks back.  Jennifer Lopez is on the new mag and coupons expire 3/31.  This happended to me too.

      • Tricia

        Should be on a shelf near the front, in cosmetics. My CVS keeps them right next to the Magic Coupon Machine – they cost 99 cents.

    • ShoeBoxSherri

      What an AWESOME idea Jenny~saving allowable surplus items for Operation Christmas Child!!! I Love it!!  I have only been Qponing close to 2 months (Thanks to U) and give away freebies to family.  I am trying to organize something with my church to make gift baskets for those struggling during a crisis.  You’re one of my heros!!   : )

      Excited to get a decent deal on diapers and will be a good way to turn my ECBs into a cash card that doesn’t expire. With baby due any day, I may not have much time for couponing.

      • Donna

        You may want to check out Lowe’s Food this week.  They have Pampers large packs on sale with in-ad coupon of $2.00, add to that a $1.50 from last Sundays paper which doubles, gives you a total off of $5.00 per bag of diapers.  I stocked up on the pull up type.  My little one is potty trained for daytime but we use the pull up pants overnight.  He has a supply until he gets married (lol).  I have enough q’s to hit Lowe’s everyday this week and get my 3.  My brother has 3 in diapers and one on the way.  I am stocking him up as well.

    • Mcleodsc

    • Gmcouponer

      ALL THESE ARE MADE SHOWING THE COST BEFORE TAX IS ADDED.
      And I did it if you only bought 1 single paper.

      Colgate buy 2 use the .75 coupon from this sunday and a .50 coupon from a few weeks ago and pay out 4.25 plus tax and get 4.00 EB back

      Next Dove Deal

      1 dove body wash 6.00 – 1.00 coupon = 5.00 (men or women)
      1 dove shampoo 3.00 – 1.00 coupon
      2 deodorants 2/7.00 – 1.00 and .75 coupons ( men and womens )
      16.00 – 3.75 coupons = 12.25 plus tax
      get back 5.00 EB like getting it for 7.25 that’s less than 2.00 each

      Better yet use the 4.00 eb too and you spend 8.25 plus tax
      get 5.00 EB back that’s like getting it all for 3.25 plus tax

      Next Nivea Deal
      1 Nivea women body wash 4.00 – 1.50 coupon (in sundays paper)
      1 Nivea mens body wash 4.00 – 1.50 coupon  (in sundays paper)
      2 Nivea lip care 2/5.00 – 3.00 off 2 coupon (in sundays paper)
      13.00 – 6.00 coupons = 7.00 and get back 3.00 EB its like getting if for 4.00 that’s 1.00 each plus tax
      If
      you were able to do the Dove deal use the 5.00 EB and your cost will be
      2.00 and get back 3.00 EB
      If you
      did not it was 7.00 after the coupons then use the 4.00 EB from the 2
      Colgate and you will pay 3.00 plus tax and get back 3.00 EB.

      Next

      Shick Hydro or Hydro Silk Razors are 9.99 – 2.00 coupon = 7.99 and get back a 4.00 EB
      7.99 use the 3.00
      EB from Nivea makes it 4.99 with 4.00 EB
      IDdn’t do the dove or nivea deal then use the colgate eb here and it will be 7.99 – 4.00 eb = 3.99 plus tax and you will get back 4.00 eb

      There will be a coupon for Arm and Hammer laundry soap in sundays paper for 1.00 off 2 The regular price for it is lets say 6.99 since I don’t know the true
      change amount.  And they will be on sale  Buy1 and Get1 Free

      If you get the 2 and use the 1.00 off coupon it makes it 5.99 and if you
      use your 4.00 EB from the Shick Razor you only pay out 1.99 for 2
      bottles

      The total before any savings 51.48 + tax
      Coupons =  14.00 total
      CVS EB =  16.00 total
      Total before taxes = 21.48
      Total after all the savings =  30.00
      I hope it works out the way I planned. :)

        • Gmcouponer

          Thanks for the heads up on the prices its much appreciated.
          have a good day. :)

      • Smartshooper

        you have to remember that in your first transaction you already take out of you packet 4 dollars to pay for the colgate paste when you said “better yet use your 4 ebc….. and pay 8.25 …. is like getting it all for 3.25” thats not truth  cuz you took those 4 dollars out of you packet you got the paste free but not the maney that money was yours to spend in whatever you want but you have to count it you have add it to your spendings.  I’m just helping dont get offended

        • Gmcouponer

          That is true you are out of pocket for the Colgate. But people would more than likely have gotten it because of the great deal. I wanted to show little areas where it could be used to help. Just in case they did not look over the paper good enough  or maybe just didn’t figure it out for a deal. I am not offended at all. Ever person can find or see things after it is wrote out that I may not have seen at first, that is ok
          But at the end I encluded all the money spent, except the taxes that would have come out of pocket before and after the coupons and extra bucks.  I hope I did not confuse any body. I do get excited when figuring these out and try hard to figure out how to get the most you can get, with little spent. There will be many times I expect I will not catch stuff I write out. But every one is nice so far on here and I hope I can help anyone with what I can figure out. That is all I am after….

        • Gmcouponer

          Dah! I didn’t see it.  I am sorry I see now the way it looks I should have wrote  that its like getting all of the dove deal for that amount. I didn’t think to list that the two were made out to be bought separately. See Sometimes you don’t notice little things like that.

    • Mcclellanda79

      If anybody received the $10 off $50 coupon, the One touch meter is a great freebie to add to your list to get you to that $50 total. It comes with 10 test strips (around a $10 value on their own). Great item for any diabetic. Even if you did not receive a $10 off $50 coupon (printed at the bottom of recent receipt) it.s still a great freebie!

    • LuvmeAdeal

      Just a heads up if you have kids: the Kid’s Colgate toothpaste will be on sale at CVS during the week of 2/19 for $1. There is an eBay listing selling ten $1 off 1 coupons for about $5, which would make the kid’s toothpaste only .50 each. Great deal, because retail is about $3 each! I can’t post the link because it would have to be moderated and they could be all gone – just go to eBay and do a search on ‘Kids Colgate’ and you should find it. Good luck!

    • exsquid22

      If an Item is b1g1 and it is part of the cash card promotion (spend 30) does the “free” one still count as part of the total to reach $30? so if an item is B1G1 at $4.49, if I buy the 2 and only pay $4.49, do I now have $8.98 towards the card deal?
      Thanks

      • Leah

        I don’t think so. If you had a coupon that was BOGO then you get the two prices but not if the store’s sale is BOGO.

      • Cayacoup

        No. If the free item is part of a BOGO deal, it does NOT count toward total. If you have a BOGO coupon, yes, they both count.

      • Faerybreath

        No. Just the price in the ad applies for both items in the promo.

    • Jony

      can i used 20% off coupon  & $10 off  purchase $50 coupon at the same time?

      • Michelle D.

        I know the 20% off can’t be used towards anything on sale but they all can be used together if you don’t buy on sale items

        • Jony

          thanks

        • Tricia

          Yeah, but which of us doesn’t wait for a sale before we buy? I like those $4 off sooo much more!

            i always bring the coupon in anyways.. you never know when you might get something that is not on sale =)  my kid is always wanting a little $1 candy or something.. every penny counts.  have the cashier scan it anyways.

        i had trouble sunday with this  would only take off the 10.00 off the 50.00 had to wait till today to get my 20 percent off but they gave 5.00 xb for my trouble you can try thats why i love my cvs

        • Cayacoup

          The 20% usually won’t take off sale/promo items.

      • noetab

        I usually used % off coupon to non-sale items and it works also to items with extrabucks sale with regular prices. hth

      • Andrea

        Yes, I have never had a problem doing that, however I hardly ever buy anything that nots not on sale so the 20% usually only takes of pennies.

    • Michelle D.

        I was able to use the $4/$20 coupon on sale items this week.  Maybe it varies per market.  The 20% coupon normally does not allow you to use it on sale items.

      Advise on this scenario please?

      16 Nature Made Vitamins at $4.49 B1G1
      Use (16) $2 off coupons
      Total: $3.92 oop
      Receive: $10 CVS Cash Card.

      I have 5 CVS’s between work and home area; so no shelf clearing.  But does this scenario work?  I just re-read their policy and it does state that 2 copons can be used as long as it doesn’t exceed the vlaue.  Thanks!

      • Deforhire

        I’m guessing no the 2 off is for fish oil. Fish oil is normally 8-9 dollars. If you can sneak coupons past cashier it may work but doesnt work at drug stores normality.

        • Shelly

          The $2 printable coupon is for any Nature Made vitamin.  But thanks!

          • Diane

            that would definitely work, but my tax is 7%, so that would be another $5 (almost) OOP, which is almost a wash.  It would be a GREAT idea if you need the $4.49 vitamin, but not worth the (gas and) time for a $1 MM (IMO)  

          • Freedomspradley1

             Wow.  You have access to 8 computers to print off the 16 coupons?  Lucky you!

            • d-d

              you only need 1 computer to print 16 or more Q of the nature made product.  Just did that myself.

    • gilleansm

      I’m relatively new to couponing and understanding the CVS deals. After reading the Nivea Lip Care deal for next week (starting 2/12) I don’t understand how a person will owe ‘nothing. The deal you show is:
      Buy:(4) Nivea Lip Care, $2.50Use: (2) -$3/2 Nivea lip care products, .17 oz stick – .35 oz tube, RP 2/12-$4 ECBTotal Due: nothingGet Back: $3 ECB

      My question: Don’t you have to pay $4 first + tax and then get your $4 ECB?

      • Solrocks_93

        If your looking at the scenario the reason why it says Due:Nothing is bc you have to do the first transaction first the Calgate. When you do the calgate you get $4RR if you buy two. Then you use those RR to pay for your Nivea witch gives you $3 RR.

        I hope this helped you, im also new with this couponing thing!

      • Cayacoup

        It’s nothing when you use the $4 ECB from the colgate deal (or from previous weeks).

    • Solrocks_93

      ok if i have multiple coupons of the $3 off 2 nivea lip balm can i do same transaction back to back? Also will i still get the RR everytime?

      • Cayacoup

        CVS deals are tied to your card. If there is a limit, your card keeps track of it. If you different accounts, then you can do several that way but that gets confusing. If you don’t use your card, the sale price/deal won’t be applied.  HTH

        • Little A’s mom

          you shouldn’t have different accounts. 1 card per household is the limit

          • Lacey

            I have two accounts due to my insurance that I had…somehow it sent me a white card b/c my perscription plan was cvs caremark….I only use one though. 

            • Laurindakk

              ? white card because your rx plan was cvs/caremark? The white cvs/caremark cards can be used at any pharmacy for rx’s because that is the insurance card itself,so many people think they can only use CVS pharmacy but that is not true. So other then your insurance card that would be white and red yes what “other” card who you have? The Extra Care card has nothing to do with the caremark card so you don’t have “two” cards for ECBs,You have an insurance card and a extracare card

    • gilleansm

      After reading your article on shopping at CVS, I am confused when it comes to the amount you will receive for your ECB. I understand the sales papers and how your product may cost $5 and after purchase you can get $2 in ECB. But the scenario you shared sounds like you will get ECB in the amount of $20.96.   Here is your scenario as a reference.
       
      Total = 20.96
      You have your CVS store coupon (from the email) for $4 off $20 and you have (2) $1.00 off Listerine coupons you printed
      You pay 14.96 plus tax after all your coupons…(being your first trip you pay with real money)
      It will print the full value of ECB on your receipt so you now have 20.96 in ECB!!! These ECB will be in the amounts totaling the different products so you will have one for $6.98 and one for $13.98. You can again use these right away if you like or they give you one month to use them before the expire.
      Now with your $20.96 in ECB in hand you can go back in and buy 2 more of each of those items pay with you new CVS ECB’s and again at the end of that receipt it will print another $20.96!!!

      PLEASE HELP!!

      • Vicki

        This may have already been mentioned, but just keep us with the limits stated in the ad. For instance, if there is an ECB that prints when you purchase 2 Listerine (just as an example) and it says limit 2, that means 2 DEALS. So you could get ECBs twice for the Listerine if you purchase four. You can go over your limit but no further ECBs will print. In this case, if you only bought 2 Listerines, got your ECB and then went back and bought 2 more, another ECB would print, until you reach your DEAL limit. This gets confusing when the “deal” is for more than one of an item, and there is a limit. I hope that makes sense…

        • Vicki

          Oops…meant keep ‘up’…

      I am a nurse. Those glucose meters would makea great item to donate your local hospital, dr’s office, etc. for patients that cannot afford them.

      • Bryan

        As a diabetic, I know that most all companies will provide free METERS to diabetic patients. The real cost of diabetes are testing strips.

    • Cayacoup

      If you keep them, yes. But awhile ago, I got deals on depends and glucose monitors. I was able to send some to family members who needed them and can’t really afford them and some to a local nursing home. Just don’t clear the shelves!

    • Sweezin

      In answer to the person needing help with understanding ECB’s.  What is written is exactly how it works however when CVS does deals where you get ECB’s back in the exact amount of the purchase there is usually a limit of one or two.  Once you reach that limit, the ECB’s will not print anymore.  So the scenario would work exactly as she described.  You would get back a total of 20.96 in ECB’s.  You probably couldn’t go back and buy those specific products again because of the limits but you would have over $20 to spend on other things you need.

        This is the part that is confusing to me. I have never seen or received the ECB that is the exact amount that I have spent in a transaction.

        Using the same example – $20.96, how do you actually get such the ECB? The only ones I know of an have seen are the ones that you can see in the sales papers. Buy xyz make up and spend $15. Get $5 ECB.

        when would there be a time that you would get the full amount of your purchase in ECB? I bet this sounds so simple. But I guess since I have never seen this before, I don’t have a reference to draw from.
        Thanks for anything you can do to explain it. (simple drawings and using A B C blocks to help me understand is certainly okay with me. I must need the really basic answer.)  :)

        Thanks for your patience and help.

        • Vicki

          You normally do not receive ECBs in the exact amount of your transaction, except when those items end up being FREE due to the ECBs that you receive. They will actually list them that way in the sale paper, such as, “XYZ Cough Drops for $2, get $2 Extra Care Bucks so they are FREE”. In that case, if that’s all you purchased, you would spend $2 and get back $2, the amount of your transaction. If you bought two or three ‘free’ items, and that’s all, your ECBs would be the same total as your transaction (if your stuff was not taxable – you always have to pay tax). Typically the ECB rounds up to the next dollar, also. For instance, if they advertise, “Buy this hair accessory for 1.85 and get a $1.85 ECB”, the reward that prints will normally be a $2 ECB. This is not always the case – for example, Cadbury eggs were 87 cents and I received an ECB in the amount of .87. Hope this helps a little….

          • gilleansm

            Yay!! I understand. :) If the item is not exactly a dollar, the ECB may match that if the item is considered free after you receive your ECB. And it seems that thinking through the possibilities of purchasing items together or in separate transactions is how a person can save money and even spend little, using ECBs.

            • Vicki

              Yes. Just keep in mind that if there are customers behind you in line, you might want to limit the number of transactions. I usually do just one and save my ECBs for the next trip. On rare occasions, I may do two, but only if there’s no line behind me…good luck!

    • Sarah

      TODAY (2/10) the “coupon center” at CVS printed out at coupon for 20% off next purchase.

      • Ann S

        I would check the coupon, I usually get emailed ones that say for non-sale items only (which usually doesn’t include most of the things that have ECB deals).

        • Sarah

          Thanks… you’re right
          “Excludes sale and promotional items”

    • Sarah

      I get what you are saying…
      My opinion could be debatable but…
      If I was a “couponer” in NEED of a meter I would be bothered if I went to my local CVSs and discovered that they were sold out to someone who bought them all just to donate. 
      I’ve been using coupons for quite a long time, since the Extreme Couponing became really popular (you know, extreme like 100 packs of 20 count pens not just getting deals and doing a 6-10 week stock pile) manufacturers have lightened up on the coupons they release.
       
      I do want to add…let’s all try to keep posts pleasant. This is a terrific site and I want to it to stay that way!

      • Little A’s mom

        “just to donate”…think about what this sounds like

        • Savingsbycoupons

          I somewhat agree w/ Sarah. I want to save some money on things I need and the shelves are clear because someone came throuh and bought things they dont need. And before you get on me about it as I said I donate. I have a  strict  monthly budget and at the end of the month whatever money i have left goes to charity in some way/shape or form…..So if you look at that way it is less I am donating when I am not able to get that cat food, dog food, baby food etc.

        • sharon

          I agree with you mom!!!!

      • Mcclellanda79

        Just to let everyone know, there is a limit of one per person on the meter coupons. No one should be able to buy them all if the store follows coupon policy. Most likely the register will beep if someone tries to use more than one in a transaction. This will alert the cashier to read the terms of the coupon.

        • guest

          You are absolutley correct on the 1 per person.  But keep in mind, this is a $10 coupon.  All coupons $10 and over beep at cvs.  They will just push them through thinking that is the reason. 

          • guest

            I still believe the shelves will be cleared because of this.  Not by me.  I have no use for them. As I don’t “buy to donate”  

            • Mcclellanda79

              Lol, I don.t “buy to donate” either. I think there should be a unspoken rule that “donaters” wait til mid sale or even the last day to buy out whatevers left in stock. That gives users of the product a chance to buy a few for themselves.

            • Vicki

              Although I don’t make a special trip, when I am there I absolutely buy to donate. The people that I donate to ARE ‘users of the product’, and have just as much right to them as others. I’m sorry, and I don’t mean to offend, but I just can’t buy into the ‘me first’ then ‘you can have what’s left for charity’. My beliefs teach me to put others first, and that’s what I endeavor to do. I don’t clear the shelves, but I definitely will not wait until the last day, just because I plan to give to charity. It seems what I’m reading here is, “If you’re going to give to charity, you should come last.” I cannot support that belief.

            • Mcleodsc

              Husband is diabetic and can use a new meter. Last time I bought him one they were all behind the counter in the pharmacy. I had to ask for one.

      • AMCR

        My CVS stores never have enough stock on-hand to allow for more than  one person to go in and get a certain advertised deal so I run into this problem quite often. For those of you who have issues with “shelf clearers,” most CVS stores
        will give out rainchecks and honor the ECB deals for you after the sale
        ends. With that being the case, I don’t think it’s right to get upset at others for wanting to donate a few extras to the less fortunate. Hoarding and donating are two different things…

    • couponchris

      Quick question to get the CVS card deal. Spend 30 get 10.  If I did the B1G1 Natures Made at 4.49.  Does the one I am getting free count towards the 30 needed to be spent?

      • Freedomspradley1

         No.  It totals the sale prices so you have to spend $30 before coupons.

    • d-d

      can someone explain to me about the savingstar ecoupon? can i use it at cvs?

      • Liz

        Saving Star coupons are like they’re imaginary.  You do NOT get the savings at the register, so go ahead and use whatever other coupons you have.  Make sure your CVS card is registered with Saving Star under your profile and make sure you’ve validated all the available coupons.  After you buy the items you’ve validated on the site, CVS electronically tracks and lets Saving Star “know” you purchased that item, and they deposit that coupon into your Saving Star account.  Once you’ve reached $5 in your account, they let you cash out….paypal, gift card, or straight to your bank account.  Once you buy an item that you have a Saving Star coupon for, don’t expect to see that money in your Saving Star account for about 10 days. I’ve done it a few times, and have noticed this to be the trend.  However, everytime I cashed out, it was in my bank account within 2 days!  HTH!

    • I have B1G1 Vitality gum coupons I got from a tearpad…Don’t remember where though I believe Dollar General…FYI check your binders

      • Nevermind they are for single packs only….   :-(

    • Mcclellanda79

      Has anyone tried stacking multiple $x off $x spent CVS store coupons. The policy states that they can be used together as long as the total amount qualifies. For example, you can use 2 $5 off $30 if you total exceeds $60. However, the coupons that I have state “one per transaction”.

      • Randa

        If possible, I would plan on doing separate transactions to be able to use both coupons.  You should still benefit the same, but it would be less of a hassle.

      • Their new coupon policy says that you can use two, so print it out and take it with you if you need it (the link to it is at the top of this post on the right hand side).

    • Gmcouponer

      Just a heads up the dove deal listed for deal #3 is incorrect I think. My Degree coupon says $1.50 off 2 degree deodorants. So you would only use one coupon or buy 4 degree deodorants. Can any one else check it for me to make sure I am seeing it right. Thanks

      • Mermaid151706

         Hi Danielle! I found the magazine in the front of the store on the rack where the newspapers are. I think some stores they are located by the pharmacy, but I’m sure you could ask a worker/manager for the location!

        • Dbaeimers

        No, the gift card items are only good for the week they are advertised for.

      • Cayacoup

        They should be split up on your receipt. The amounts you purchase will go toward their respective weeks.

    • Mcleodsc

      I have to vent this morning-WHY DOES CVS INSIST ON INCLUDING COUPONS FROM THE INSERTS IN THEIR SALES AD WHEN NOT EVERY NEWSPAPER HAS THOSE INSERTS/COUPONS?? I am going to sit down tomorrow afternoon and compose a letter to CVS about this problem.

      • If you read close, it doesn’t say that the coupon is guaranteed to be in the paper – it says that the manu coupons are available in MOST sunday papers.  Before I knew about SoutherSavers.com, I appreciated the head’s up from the ad that there might be a coupon I could go look for…and even if the coupon I had in my paper wasn’t for the same price, at least I knew that I had one.  Without the note in the ad, I may have missed it completely.  It’s not CVS’s fault that the MANUFACTURES send different valued coupons to different regions.  If you really want to take issue with someone, write to the company who gives different value coupons to different regions.

      • Savingsbycoupons

        It does say in “most papers”

      • I actually asked CVS corporate that a few months ago.  They said that they get a report about a month before the actual ad starts of what coupons are coming out nationwide, but that they don’t even know what areas will get it and what areas won’t.  They want to include the information to help shoppers (and make the ad seem more fun) but run into that on a regular basis that it frustrates some areas.

    • Tanya Ea Lawless

      When does CVS begin honoring the Sunday newspaper advertisement deals? I thought I read somewher that it was 4pm Saturday. Any help would be appreciaed beccause I really don’t want to “camp out” until midnight at CVS just for a couple of these deals… Thanks!

      • Randa

        It really depends on your CVS.  Check with the store manager to question when they generally activate the new sales ad.

        • T Lawless

          Thanks so much! Will do…

      • Mcleodsc

        the store where I shop activates at 6PM

      • Jennifer Jasper

        Sometimes it just depends. On New Year’s Eve my friend and I went to CVS (yes, we’re that boring) and they told us their manager told them not to activate the sales early that evening and to wait til the morning. But my friend usually shops there and said they usually activate them on Saturday. I have no idea why it made a difference that it was New Year’s Eve!

    • Randa

      With the One Touch glucose monitor, I am noticing that the test stips that work with it are very expensive.  Wondering if I was to purchase one for donation, if anyone could afford make use of it.

      • Bamasaver

        Unfortunately, you’ll find that this is the case with most glucose monitoring…actual monitoring devices are reasonable, but all the test strips are very expensive.

        Does anyone have a rebate form they could share? If so please email me at lwisdom101 at msn dot com.

      • Mcclellanda79

        I am a little confused by this rebate. It says “not to be used with any other offer”. Does that mean since cvs is offering a ecb and I am using coupons, that I don’t qualify for the rebate?

    • ME

      I know many of you have issues with people who clear shelves and donate.  I certainly do not mean to hurt anyone’s feelings by what I am going to post.  This is just my opinion.  I am not a shelf clearer.  I get what my family can use and if I have an extra coupon I will get another to donate.  If I see that I am not going to use the items before they expire, I donate them, too.  As for people who clear the shelves and purchase 10-20 of an item to donate…just take 2 or 3 and donate those.  If you really do need 10-20 for your family (because you will actually use these) go ahead and get them.  Yes, there are many people who depend on your donations and go to facilities to receive financial assistance and products they can’t afford.  However, when my brother was in need (homeless) I went to a facility to try to get him some items he needed, including used clothing.  Do you know that they couldn’t assist him because he was not a resident of the county?  Unfortunately, there was not a facility to help him in the county where he last resided.  There are people WHO DO NOT QUALIFY for assistance from facilities and DEPEND ON SHOPPING WITH COUPONS to get the necessary items they need.  If you clear the shelves, those people get none and can’t go to a facility either.  THEY DO WITHOUT.  You may think I am not being nice by not buying 20 to donate. I really am a compassionate person.  Many times I have purchased food at a restaurant and given to a homeless person.  I have helped make packets for prisoners.  I help people who are down on their luck.  I guess I just wanted to show you another side of clearing the shelves.  This is why I am also a fan of yard sales.  Yes, there are some people who do not qualify for assistance at certain facilities and the clothes at Walmart might be too expensive.  Being able to get a pair of jeans for 50 cents at a yard sale is a wonderful buy for them.  So couponers….take what you need and one or two more if you would like to donate and leave the rest for those also wishing to purchase.

      • Vicki

        Very well put! I think we could all agree that moderation and balance is the key, here. I also only purchase maybe 2 or 3 extras to give to charity, and I certainly feel that it’s the right thing to do. I don’t have a lot of discretionary income – the actual funds we have are given to our church, but I really enjoy being able to help others with my efforts at couponing, since I don’t have money to give. I think if we’re all considerate, this works.

      • mommypie

        I agree. I don’t think we necessarily need to clear the shelves to donate the items. I usually leave my extra coupons near the products for other people to use. This will help others save money, too.
        There are a lot of other things we can donate without clearing the shelves.

        • Kati3878

          I like to donate items too, but I don’t clear shelves. I usually only have four of any coupon, in any given week, so when I see a good deal, I pick up 1-2 extra of an item to donate. I have a Rubbermaid storage tote that  I store all of my stuff to donate. It takes me longer to accumulate items for donation, but I’m OK with that. 

          And I always love finding coupons that others have left behind, especially when it’s a coupon I don’t have.:) 

      • Amy

         I do not have a problem with shelf clearers. I do not feel like
        1) I am entitled to every deal
        2) I am entitled to use every coupon I clip

        If I really wanted the item, I would have been there when the store started its sale or preordered. This is coming from a person who works full time with 2 kids. I have heard many people whine about this…..where do you think kids are picking up the whining?

        • OKellyATL

          And where do you think kids are picking up the selfish, every man for himself, you snooze you lose, so sad too bad…greedy attitudes from?  Just sayn!

      • OKellyATL

        Very good post…at a ballgame my son was fortunate enough to end up two foul balls, as soon as he caught the 2nd he looked around and saw a younger kid that missed out..he immediately handed him a ball.  Why he is able to grasp this at a very young age and some “ladies” (I use that word loosely) on here still can’t get it is beyond me.  Greed (even in the name of good) is a very ugly trait.  Thanks again for the awesome post..not whining at all…just telling it like it is!

      There is also a $1/1 Nivea lotion or Eucerin in the Walmart Beauty insert for Sunday’s paper. It is a manufacturer’s coupon not a Walmart coupon. 

    • StefanieMS

      Regarding the $5 ECB wyb $15 Softsoap, Speedstick or Irish Spring deal:  According to the ad preview at iheartcvs and the add states Irish Spring OR Softsoap body wash.  There was a $1 off ONE Irish Spring Body Wash coupon in SS 1/29 :)

      • Randa

        The ad on iheartcvs is usually slightly different from my area.  Just a heads up, make sure you match up to *your store’s ad.  I learned the hard way… :)

    • Mcleodsc

      back from CVS-there are only about 6 Sensodynes left. I bought 4 but need to go back tomorros and get 2 more if there are any left. I got the last Ladies speed stick and had to to a man’s speed stick to use my BOGO CPN. There were only about 12 of the men’s speed stick left. NO Emerald Isle breakfast treats. Cheapest Nature made was 6.49 for vit C. I got two but the second $2. cpn beeped and cashier said I could not use it because it stated limit one per purchase.I had her take off one of the vitamens but may return the other one tomorrow and try to repurchase two of them with the two coupons and take their cpn policy with me. I bought 4 of the Soft soap bw and there were about 12 left. The store is poorly stocked unless they have more in the storage room.

    • GrandnenaA4

      I was shopping at my local CVS when I noticed a lady sitting in the floor with coupon binder, ads, merchandise while talking on a cell phone.  Mgr approached her asking could she assist her.  Lady said no, I am just trying to figure this out and kept on talking.  Mgr said she was in the store from 8:30 am until 2:30 pm, left in time to pick up kids.  This lady disrupted the normal business of the store.  Mgr could have called police for loitering.  This was rude and inconsiderate of this couponer and actions like this is what gives couponing a black eye.  Comments please…

      • Randa

        Unbelievable.  Evidently she is not following Southern Savers or she would have never had to take that long to figure out a deal.  And if she did figure out some sort of deal, the time she spent doing so would not justify it.  Sad.

        • GrandnenaA4

          Yes, it is sad and rude, inconsiderate. It is people like this that will get the rules changed for everyone, it just takes one bad apple. In fact, mgr said she had two cell phone in floor with her and kept on talking i was standing in the aisle too on my way out and heard mgr say that, that is why I ask her about it when I come back in. I have used coupons for many years, and would never ever think about doing such a trick as that. I just wanted to get some comments back on it. Thanks

      • Amy

        I hope nobody mistakes me for her.  On occasion I too sit in an aisle with my binder, but only for 5 minutes, when I’ve found something on clearance, and know I have a coupon.  I also hop up and move if anyone needs the aisle.  You are right, spending 6 hours at a store seriously eliminates any savings if you even pay yourself minimum wage. 

      • Amber

        I don’t know, I guess I missed the part where she did something wrong….?

        • GrandnenaA4

          Yes, I believe you did! You do not sit in a place of business with their merchandise spread out all over the floor, and with coupons, ads layed out talking on two cell phones. That is very rude, inconsiderate and I don’t know many business’s that would put up with it. It only takes a few bad apples to ruin a good thing. She should have known what she was going in there for and had a back up plan if they were out of stuff. 6 hours is a pretty long time to be in any store let alone sitting in the floor. That is not acceptable behavior.

      • Mcleodsc

        I just had to LOL!! Maybe her store was out of something and she was trying to figure out what to get instead -Maybe her store did NOT HAVE THE SIGNS UP and she was trying to figure out if she had the correct products? I just take an envelope with the coupons I expect to use plus a few extras just in case they are out of something. You can see me talking out loud trying to figure out a deal or running back and forth to the red machine to see if I have the correct item because the signs are not up. I have bad knees so I cannot get on the floor but I will park the cart near an endcap and try to reorganize my deals if they are out of something. Also my stepsister does call me from the store if she runs into a problem and I try to talk her thru it  but she cannot get on the floor either -so it was not us-LOL!!

        • GrandnenaA4

          Yes, it is funny in a way but it is also pitiful that someone would take that long and have the guts to sit in one store for 6 hours while”she tries to figure this out” and knowing the mgr and employee’s, customers was looking at her. I have been couponing for a long, long time, I would never disrupt a store like that, that person was, rude. It is one thing to check your coupons and see what deals you can get, but to stay on the phone, in fact she had two cell phones. What I am saying, business’s will not put up with that kind of actions and before long we will not be having any good deals. I have also talked to my sister while looking around. Mgr was going to call the police on her and have her threw out. May have been goood for her.

      I am new to buying diapers. So, I could really use some help from all the moms out there. Is the Huggies deal for $19.99 a good one or could I get them cheaper if i just wait? I was thinking of buying two packs and getting the gift card. I just want to get the best deal I can and save as much as possible.

      • Lsylte

         Diaper deals are hard to come by lately.  As far as a deal for 19.99, it depends on what size you need.  If you are purchasing the small diapers, then it will have more diapers and be cheaper per diaper.  That is what has worked best for me… I now have a 16 month old and use size 5s… I’ve found better deals at Publix (so far this year w/ gift card rebate).  I always figured out how much it was per diaper… and if that was my purchase price… for example, .19 cents per diaper is what I shoot for in size 5 diapers.  Hope that helps :)

      • Randa

        I’m skipping this one.  I like to keep my diapers around 9-12 cents/diaper or 20/ pull ups. 

      • Jen W

        Thanks for the help…I will be getting size 1 and have some ecb to use on the deal. I will definitely do my math to determine price per diaper. Thanks again.

      • Melpink531

        this deal doesnt seem that great to me. but is apart of the 30 get 10 gc back so might be worth it if you use a lot of diapers. maybe get 2 boxes for 39.98 then minus coupons. and u will get a 10.00 gc back. then get another box and and use the 10.00 gc for that and you will get another gc back.

      • Brooke

        It was definatley worthwhile for me after all the sales and coupons. The register has been printing $10 off $50 purchase coupons for me recently. I purchased 2 OneTouch meters that were free after coupons to get me to $50. I also got a box of diapers, bag of wipes and 2 scrubbing bubbles toilet cleaning gels. Total cost after savings star coupons and gift card was less than $10. I did notice that the smallest size my CVS carried in a box of Huggies was size 3. But at that price I’ll stock them. I’ve built quite the stock pile of diapers over the last 9 months during my pregnancy and since I’m overdue I was able to pick up a few more today!!! I’ve been targeting 10 to 12 cents a diaper. It has been hard for me to judge how many to stock of each size, but I will be thankful not to have to worry about buying many diapers when our little one arrives. I don’t think I’ll have a lot of time for serious couponing at first.

        • Brooke

          Oh by the way, I was a little disappointed with the OneTouch meters, I expected it to come with a few lancets and a few test strips which would help stretch the supplies for my prescription monitor, but it only comes with lancets, no test strips :(

          • Maria

            Hey, Brooke.  I think I can help you with the test strips.  What’s your email?

      • Christie

        I’ve been doing this for several years now.  Used to be I would hold out for deals for 5-7 cents/diaper.  Now, it’s a little harder to get good diaper coupons.  If I can get it for less than 12 cents/diaper, I go ahead and do the deal.  but, less than 9 cents now, and I’m happy with the deal.  HOpe that helps.

      • Lstcoupon

        I rarely buy diapers at drug stores any more, and never at grocery stores.  Keep an eye on Amazon.  You can use camelcamelcamel dot com to keep an eye on their prices.  Especially as I’ve gone to pull-ups!  (I have triplets, so you KNOW I keep an eye on diaper prices!)

      • Cyndi

        Hi Jen,
        The price you pay per diaper is good to use when you are comparing across brands (or within a brand if you are comparing say pampers cruisers to pampers baby dry) for the same size diaper, but the price per diaper is going to go up as the sizes get bigger because there are fewer diapers in a package as they get bigger.  I think that around $4 is a good price for a jumbo pack of name brand diapers.

        Anyway, I was just at CVS and they have some diapers on clearance – it is going to vary by store so yours may not have it, but it’s worth looking.  Mine had boxes of pampers at 50% off.  So I got size 3 pampers baby dry diapers (96 pack) for $11.49.  On top of that I had a $1.50 off coupon and a 20% off deal that I got from CVS through email.  Even without the coupon and the 20% off, I think it is still a decent deal.  I use as a general rule of thumb that there are two jumbo packs to one box of diapers (there are actually usually more).

        Good luck!
        Cyndi

    • Savingmoney11

      Bought 7 of the soft soap body washes that are the clear kind and they rang 2.29 each. Used the 1/1 mq for 4 and 75/1 for the other 3 for total of 6.25 off. 15.68-6.25 mq for 9.43 oop. After 5 ecbs was 4.43 for all 7 or .64 cents each after ecbs. Also there were some of the sensodyne toothpaste for 2.49 on clearance 2.24 each and one of the green top iso-active aquafresh on clearance for 1.48. I used the 1/1 for the aquafresh isoactive and the cvs q from the reinventing beauty cvs for glaxosmithkline $5/10. Scored agood buy on the toothpaste my kids like to use. Thanks to the earlier post on the sake for the sensodyne! Love cvs!

    • Niddi

      I just hate, hate, hate it when my area doesn’t get the good coupons. Didn’t get the Sensodyne on 1/1 an now no Nivea coupons in todays paper. Deals look slim for me this week. Only toothpaste and deodorant.

      • Debbie-patterson

         I live in Florida, I get 2 different papers. Usually if one doesn’t have the coupon I’m looking for the other one does. The origination cities of these papers are about 2 hours apart.

        • Phatpatswife

          Florida today and Orlando sentinel?

      • collsers

        There was a Nivea manuf coupon in the Walmart circular, which you should be able to use at any store.

        • Yuliyaporter

          was  it on lotion ?  I  am  looking  for  the  lip balm  and  it  was  not  in my  paper

      • Yuliyaporter

        same here:(  very dissapointing, but  I am  used  to  this  by now!

      • Cayacoup

        The sensodyne coupons (2.50/2 & $5/$10) are also in the CVS beauty magazine. And they are manu. cpns. Bought one twin pack today for $10.49 and paid $5.49.

        • Marcia

          so they let you use both?  If you read the coupon it says only one cvs coupon (which they say manufact but than the wording is CVS… kind of confusing)

      • Ive learned to never look forward to the Nivea coupons either :(

        • Charter

          Yeah, here in Greenville Sc, We never get the Nivea coupons

      • Jennifer Jasper

        There was a Nivea coupon in my walmart insert. Nothing else though.

    • exsquid22

      Is anyone having any luck with using multiple coupons on the vitamin B1G1 deal? 

      • Melpink531

        not yet, but going to try it later. there shouldnt be a problem, because their new coupon policy says you can use 2 coupons on a B1G1 :)

      • Mcclellanda79

        This morning the second coupon would not go through but my cashier took it off anyways. You will have problems if you try to use more than 1 per 2 purchased. It is apparently at the discretion of the cashier to push it through or not.

      • Mcleodsc

        not last evening-the second cpn beeped and the cashier would not accept it.

      • Couponmama

        I went Saturday and Sunday to get vitamins and my coupons were working fine, at two different CVS…It beeped but they just entered it in

      • At the top of the site you’ll see a box that has CVS links, print the coupon policy if you do have issues and it states that you are allowed two coupons on a B1G1 deal.  Hopefully if they beep the policy will help!

    • luv4houston

      There is $1 off Sparkle paper towells in the March 2012 Good Housekeeping magazine.

    • Sallycoupon

      how do you get the nivea coupon on face book? I made a face book acount to get it. But I can’t find it. Is it a friend? 

    • yesimadude

      Got to share. Set a new record today for myself. I had 13 ECB that were about to expire, so I did the following:

      2 Quilted Northern 12 packs for $14
      2 Nature Made Vitamins $5.49 (used 2 $2 off coupons)
      2 Pledge Cleaners $6.00 ($1 off, plus $1.25 saving star)
      2 Scrubbing Bubbles Gels packs $6 ($1 off pus, $1 Saving star)
      1 Colgate $2,75 (used .50 off)
      1 Ultramini Meter 9.99 (used $10 off)
      4 Speed Sticks 7.96 (used 2 B1G1—I assumed it would only take 1.99 off, but it actually took 3.99 off of each one)

      Used 10 off of 50 CVS coupon and 13 ECB
      Paid $4.74 (got back 10 card and 2 ECB)

      4 Speed Sicks 7.96 (see above)
      4 Dove Men Deo (used 4 $1 off coupons)
      1 Dove Shampoo (used $1 off)
      1 Mini Meter 9.99 (used $10 off)
      2 Got2Be stylers 7.98 (used 2 $3 off)
      2 Oreos 5.98

      Used 10 off $50 and $10 Card and $2 ECB
      Paid $0.21 (got back 5, 5, 2 ECB)

      Retail=181.21.
      Paid OOP= $ 4.95
      Got back $12 ECB plus $5 rebate coming in mail for Colgate/Palmolive
      Made $12!

      Great thing is we have 5 CVS within 10 minutes driving time, so I went to the biggest stores that still had plenty in stock so nothing got shelf cleared.  Also, lined up donations for the Meters, Vitamins, and some of the speedstick before hand. Plenty for our house and for donating and I made a pretty good profit!  I love CVS………………  

      • yesimadude

        My bad….also take off the $2.2.5 from Savingstar which actually makes the profit $14.30!

      • mrn1

        Good Job!  But don’t forget that you may have ended with $12 ECB, but you paid $13 ECB when you started, so basically you broke even with the ECBS and after the MIR with C/P will have broken even with your OOP costs today.  Still a great job!!

        • yesimadude

          Yeah, I have been curious about how others calculate earnings/totals using store rewards.  I see some sites that say you just include them in “cash”/OOP totals and others that dont include them in the OOP but consider them coupons b/c you have to use them before an exp date 
          (which of course leads to a higher “profit” or overall total).  I see logic in both, but was curious how others calculated.

          • yesimadude

            Oh and thanks! :)

          • Jordan

            I always calculate what I paid out of pocket for that week. Like today I had a gift card from last week that I used, so my total out of pocket was only $2.22, but I received a $5 ECB making my total a $2.78 profit.

            At Walgreens it was a little bit different. My first transaction was $5, received $5 RR. Second transaction after coupons and RR was $10.16, but I received $10 RR back. So my total out of pocket was $15.16, but I have $10 RR remaining, so I figure that I spent $5.16 on my entire haul at Walgreens.

            Most of the time I do not start out with ECBs or RR, but at the end of the month I do a tally of what all was spent out of pocket that month on couponing. Hope this wasn’t confusing :P

          • mrn1

            Just make sure you don’t count your ECBs, gift cards, RRs that you carry  over as money saved or it is a false sense of savings.  I was doing that for a while and realized that you can’t count these things both times.  For instance, if I spent $20 last week and got the $10 gift card, I don’t need to say I only spent $10 last week and then shop today and use that $10 gift card plus $5 OOP and say I only spent $5.  That is double counting that $10 GC as savings.  That would actually be spending $25 OOP, but if you double count like a lot of people do, you would think you only spent $15.  Clear as mud?  

    • mrn1

      Just wanted to let anyone interested know about the little problem I had at CVS this morning so hopefully you won’t have the same issue.  In regards to the Nivea deal, I went for the lip balm.  There are two different packages for the lip balm, one kind is simply the tube that is wrapped in plastic and the other is the tube with a plastic cover on a piece of cardboard that hangs.  Typically both are included, as I have done this deal at CVS several times before.  Today, the plain tube without the big cardboard/plastic is not included in the sale and will not print the ECB.  I got 2 of the plain tubes in Milk and Honey and 2 of the same flavor in the larger packaging.  The plain tubes rang up $2.99 and did not count towards the ECB.  The manager was a young arrogant jerk and told me that the sale items have to look like the picture.  This makes no sense since they are the exact same thing.  Hope I saved someone some trouble!!

      • Phairplu

        I had that problem, but luckilly I have a fantastic store clerk who fixed it.  I wish all the clerks like and care about their job as much as she does, i am sending a good comment compliment to her manager and corporate. 

      • Kakia

        I would go back and speak with the manager. Regardless of the picture, the ad clearly states its for any lip care that is .17-.2oz. I purchased the ones with only the plastic wrap. For me though, the clerk forgot to scan my CVS card. She corrected it buy giving me the 3 ECBs.

      • Coldmamajenn

        I actually had a similar problem, I bought 3 of the shimmer ones and 1 milk and honey, all in plain tubes. The 3 shimmers went through fine and were on sale, but the milk and honey rang up at 2.99. I didn’t notice until my ECB didn’t print. It was early and I was the only customer so I asked the cashier about it and she told me the milk and honey one must not be on sale. I said let me check, so I ran back and sure enough they were all labeled as being on sale. There was a milk and honey in a cardboard package so I grabbed it to see if it rang up the same. She said it rang up at sale price, so she refunded the one that wasn’t on sale and sold me the one that was and it printed out my ECB. She said she had to do it that way because the manager was in the back dealing with a shipment, but she would bring this to their attention. You should go over that pea brain’s head and complain to corporate.

        • mrn1

          you know what is interesting…in regards to the sale item only being what is pictured (per the arrogant jerk in Decatur, AL)…last weeks ad had the plain tubes pictured, but two of the four I bought were the larger packaging and they rang up/printed the ecb without problems.  This week only the larger packaged are pictured, and next weeks ad both kinds are pictured.  I am surprised he didn’t tell me it rang up wrong and ddn’t print the ecb because I used a coupon…that is usually what they say.  

    • Phairplu

      I had so much fun at CVS today.  Over the past weeks I have accumulated 45 ECB, I have been running on gift cards and ECB since Thanksgiving and have paid little more than tax and necer more than $5 per week.  Today for $2.21, after using all my ECB, I purchased 5 softsoap body wash, niviea lotion, 2 lip balms, big box of huggies, huggies wipes, 3 dove shampoos, 6 pack dove soap, 2 pledge furniture polish, 2 arm and hammer dryer sheets, I got back $13 ECB and a $10 gift card, I love CVS!!  

    • Tthompsonjob

      Loving CVS too. I especially love the $3 off of $10 healthcare purchase. Got 2 meters, 1 dove shampoo, 2 dove soaps for six bucks and some change. Then I received $5 ECB. Woo hoo!!

    • scwells

      Great deal on the Got 2 B hair styling products. 3$ off one product in todays paper made each one .99$. We use these products and I was glad to get them on sale.

      Not all Nature Bounty Vitamins are BOGO.   We always stock up on the Men’s and Women’s N. Bounty Vitamin packs, and they were not included in the BOGO.  Maybe next time:(

    • Tshockley1

      I have a question about the 5/10 GlaxoSmith coupon for the Sensodyne TP.  This is a man. Q.  Can I use any other q’s with that if I purchase over the 10 dollars worth of product?

      • EricsWifeOwensMom

        The way I understand the 5/10 coupon is that it says manufacturer but has a store bar-code. The register recognized mine as a CVS Q so I was able to use the 5/10, the 2.50 on 2 CVS Sensodyne and 2 of the 1/1 Sensodyne manQ printables. all on 2 tubes of the 7.49 bottles of Sensodyne which are on sale b1g1/2 off towards the gift card. Hope that helps!

        • Randa

          Did the $7.49 Sensodyne show up on your receipt as working toward the gift card deal?  I ask because it seems to not match with the advertised sale.  That one is a 4.3 oz and the ad specifies the 4 oz or the twin pack Sensodyne.  If it does count, that would be a good deal to use.

          • EricsWifeOwensMom

            Yes, it did. I bought the 4.3oz I scanned the bottles first. They scanned bogo1/2 off so I knew they were participating in the card deal. And honestly, I didn’t even realize the ad had those sizes specified until you mentioned it. But yes, it does seem to be the best usage of q’s if you’re going toward the card deal.

      • Mcleodsc

        Even tho it says Manu cpn on the top -It is NOT a manu cpn.
        Read the small print-it is clearly a CVS coupon.  Plus manu cpns usually start with a 5 or 9.

    • Jennifer Jasper

      I noticed Carmex Moisture Plus was on sale at CVS for $1.49 and I had two coupons for $.75 off. But the scanner at the register wouldn’t scan the coupons. They told me that they aren’t supposed to take them if they won’t scan. I’ve never had this problem before at CVS. They did end up taking them. I printed them a month or so ago from one of the coupon websites. Anyone else had issues with this at CVS?

    • Yuliyaporter

      Why is it that everytime theres a new weekly ad, everyone complains and whines about shelfclearing???? I never get deals done. I take it as too bad for me I should’ve made it to the store sooner… Let it be……… We dont know how people live to take all the stuffs. People, please live and let people live. There are more couponers than me and you. Just saying, and i feel sorry for all of US that cant get our deals done. I include myself because I never get them or will ever get my deals. TOO BADDDDDDD. Oh and about the coupons I choose to buy my coupons, so thats my own money and I buy as many as I want (newapapers that is)… So, quit whining….. Just speaking my mine. Sorry….

      • Crownstar

        I agree 100%.  When I got into a store and the item I  want is gone; i say to myself that’s too bad and let it go.  Why are we complaining about shelf clearing, if there is a item that I want  than I purchase it..  I  have even gotten to my 24 hr CVS at midnight for somethings.  Enough with the shelf clearing comments; how do you know if the person took the last 10 or last 2! and who are we to condemn someone for waht they do with items they PURCHASE, if I want to dontate than I donate it.. Remember CVS is not a super store, like lets say Walmart; they will NOT have 30 of every item so everyone can get them.  I’ve preordered items and gotten rain checks and even asked when new shipments come in. Is it ok if I DON’T use coupons and go in the store and buy 10 of an items and there are none left? Jenny put this site together for our benefit and for that I thank her.

      • Okellyatl

        So what constitutes “whining”…someone with a different opinion than you?

      • If any one want to whine about shelf clearing talk to the store manager before tuesday (order day) and tell them how many u want and come back on friday (truck day) and get them problem solved!! if you come after tuesday and there is none still try back on friday u never know when the shelf was actually cleared so you might get luck and get what you want on Friday!! and if you come after tuesday and there is still none on friday gosh rain checks are not scarce  ASK for one now that solves the whining problem!!!

        You can get rain checks and never miss out on a deal.  I prefer rainchecks beacuse it helps me to never lose Extra Bucks from them expireing and also I might get a coupon to go with the rain check later.

      I have had problems finding the On Touch Mini coupon for 9.99 off. I have been wanting to get a new meter, and this one looks portable enough to just stick in my purse.
      Can someone gve me some pointers on how to find one?
      I did find an offer on the Smartsource site, but after I sat here for 10 mins skipping offers, it didn’t give me a coupon.

      • Mcclellanda79

        If you already have your coupon inserts, it is in the Jan. 8 smartsource that is labeled healthy essentials. Open it to the first page and it is on the bottom right. If you have no insers, you can request that a local couponer mail you one. You should be able to get a raincheck if they are sold out. Coupon does not expire until the end of March.

        • Redheadedstepchild75

          Thank you.  I just started couponing about 2 weeks ago, so I didn’t have that insert. But, I was lucky enough to have someone offer to email me one.

    • Esyke623

      So it sounds like, even though CVS has updated their policy to clearly state that you can use 2 coupons for a BOGO deal, the 2nd coupon now beeps?  I don’t remember the 2nd one beeping before, but I haven’t bought a BOGO deal in a while.  Are they only accepting 1 per BOGO deal now?

      • Mcleodsc

        I had the same problem.

        • Nbbaseball

          Just lastnight I went to cvs and the speed sticks were B1G1 and the price was 1.99. I used a b1g1 coupon and got them for free. I bought 8 of them and used 4 b1g1 coupons and they were FREE and I got $5 ECB back becasue when you spend 15 on selected speed sticks you get ecb back

          • Megster77

            The 1.99 from the free one counts towards the $15? I will have to try this deal too.

      • Tmb0214

        I used $1 MQ & .75 cent MQ on the Emerald Breakfast B1G1. No problem. Then I also used a BOGO MQ for Orbit. I got 14pks free, for gift baskets.

      Hi all,  I have purchased 2 coupons for QN tissue from ebay.  The value is upto 14Dolllars off.  Can somebody pl. tell me if CVS will reduce it to the value of the tissue which is 7 dollars.  Or they will take 14 off my bill and allow me to use the overage which in this case would be 14 dollars.

      • exsquid22

        they will ark the coupon value, to the sale value.  You will not get any overage.

        • exsquid22

          ark?  geeze, coffee first.  lol

        • guest

          Thankyou very much.  I went to Publix instead and got the gas deal after using these Qs.  Spoke to Manager and he very graciously let me take the 18 double roll pack which was sale on for 9.99 as the coupon value was upto 14 dollars.  So I bought 2 packs along with some voskos yogurt which was also on sale, used some Qs both Manufacturer and store, got 10 dollars off for a gas card and infact paid 41 something for the 2 Packs of paper, 6 voskos and a 50 usd gas card fr Hess.

          Thanks to this website, I have started saving good amount of money on groceries.

        Do you have to do separate transactions to get them for 9.99 each?

      I am concerned about the nature made coupon that prints from rite aid.  It prints as a pdf and it doesn’t generate a new barcode each time.  I once heard one cvs cashier telling another to watch for duplicate printable coupons that have the same barcode “because some people copy them.”   I am sure duplicates of this coupon will just look like I made copies.

      • Mel

        the bar code on like coupons are always the same…. its the “coupon code” in the upper right hand corner of printable coupons that change.  PDF file coupons will always look the same… I had no issues using the PDF coupon for Nature made yesterday at CVS.

        • Robzwife33

          that’s good to know.   I was wanting to use 6 of them.  So it could raise a red flag for them.  I think I will try it and just have some $1 q’s  for back up

          • Fortune84

            Just make sure they scan the longer code. Tried yesterday, didn’t work. Went in today after looking at various sites and had them scan just the longer one and it worked. I used 8 of them in two transactions (Not the cheapest ones, plenty stock left and ALL ones I needed) and had no problem. I’m anemic and have colitis and these vitamins help without using a bunch of meds!

    • Dlwilson32

      Will cvs take coupons from other stores, like I printed a coupon off the internet  and it says redeem at walgreens

      • no

      • Kenren801

        if it says “manufacturer’s coupon” you can use it anywhere.

      • Mcleodsc

        No

      • Mel

        It depends if it says “ONLY redeemable at Walgreens” or not.  If it’s a true manufacturer’s coupon, sometimes they put a suggestion that you use it at a certain store, but that doesn’t mean you HAVE to.  If it says manufacturer’s coupon and has a remit address (and I think the bar code usually starts with a 9 or a 5), you should be able to use it anywhere.  Although I’ve had a hard time explaining that to some cashiers.  If it’s a true Walgreens coupon, though, no… they don’t take competitor’s coupons like that.  HTH

    • Tcmb04

      How do they send the coupon for registering card the 4 off 20.00? how long before you get?

    • Cyn

      FYI Secret Deoderant is on sale for $3.99 with 1 ECB. Use $1.00 Coupon from paper 2/12. Ending value $1.99 for Secret Deoderant! I was excited for this surprise Deal! =)

    • Crownstar

      Revitalens coupon is back on Coupons.com…it must have reset because I printed 2 last weeka and just printed 2 more.  This time they even say “redeembable at CVS”.  At my store the 2×2 size box was $2.49…so 49 cents per box!

    • mnesota kuponer

      with the colgate deal at cvs this week, the limit is 2, does that mean that when i buy 2 colgates for a total of 5.50, will i get 2 (2.00) ecb back? OR do i need to to do 2 separate transactions to receive the 2 ecb?  

      • rudy6

        You can do it in one transaction and you will get your ECB.

      • nasatiger

        You can do it all in one transaction (I did on Sunday) but if you do it in the same transaction it will print one $4 ECB instead of two $2 ECBs. Just a heads up in case that matters to you.

    • Tharpdw1

      I went to CVS to buy the bounce dryer bars and when they scanned my 1.50 off coupon, it wouldn’t take it. Has anyone else had this problem Thanks

      • couponer

         I had the same problem so the cashier had to put it in manually.

      • Mom2meecoupons

        Same here! They just manually entered it though.

    • Vijtai01

      Where or How can I get colgate-palmolive rebate form?

      • yesimadude

        It was in one of the papers. Sorry, cant remember which one, but I think it was from middle January or early February if that helps any….

    • Mom2meecoupons

      Anyone else have trouble using the coupons for the dove body wash? I bought 3 so I used 3 $1 off coupons and it wouldn’t take the last one. Cashier said I couldn’t use that many in one transaction. I re-read the coupon and it said one per purchase, not to exceed 4 in one transaction so I told her I should be fine and she snapped at me saying “I know how to count but it’s not taking this coupon”. She finally just manually entered it. This was my first time trying coupons at cvs so I was a little shocked at the attitude.

      • ShoeBoxSherri

        Hygiene items are needed in most countries over seas.  They are very appreciative to receive items that we take for granted….little toys are usually included in the boxes.

      • Mcleodsc

        Hygiene items are appreciated in third world countries. So are items we consider basic like pencils. In some areas of Africa, parents are cutting pencils into smaller pencils so each of their children will have one for school. A missionary told me this and brought me to tears when I thought about all the pencils that I have thrown away after using one or two times. I always include pencils in the boxes.

        • Ekwacuka

          I have lived through it. My mum would buy 2 pencils and cut them up in half for my 2 sister and 1 brother. My sister will be going to back home for summer and we are planning on sending her with alot of care packages to donate to people there. Thanks to couponing we shall have alot more.Thinks like toothpaste, toothbrushes, sanitary pads pencils etc

      • Guest

        When you eat dirt because you have no food you are thankful for small gifts. Some people think about how they can help others and not just themselves.

    • happyinSC

      The toothpaste is for Operation Christmas Child.  They send shoeboxes full of toys, prizes, and hygene items overseas to show the love of Christ to children who may never have heard of Him.  So, we stockpile and can afford to send more boxes overseas to make an impact on others. 
      But, if you didn’t know all this, we would sound nuts.  =)

      • Couponjunkie

        I’ve also started to stock up for OCC.  My husband was nice enough last year to let our WMU (Womens Missonary Union) know that I had all kinds of toothpaste saved up. (I had 8 saved up for donations) They prepare 30 boxes each year. So I’ve begun saving for them and the many other ministries I’ll be donating to.

    • kcl

      A heads up the Revitalens travel pack is on sale for $2.49 so minus the $2 coupon it’s only $.49!!!

      Hey yall! I was looking at diapers and saw that the boxes of Pampers swaddlers and baby dry were 50% off! I got two boxes of diapers reg $22/ea for $11/ea minus a $4 coupon! I also bought a futuro brace and 2 loreal lip sticks and got $10 ECB’s! I feel rich…

    • ShoeBoxSherri

      IRONIC:  “Happening in the opposite way to what is expected, thus typically causing wry amusement.”

      When I first started Qponing in December, I remember that I commented to a SouthernSavers follower that clearing the shelves of 16 bottles of Pantene shampoo was wrong and was hoarding.  Do you know, I ultimately ended up with 16 bottles of Pantene shampoo?!!  (After multiple trips and weeks of shopping.)  I believe God purposefully allowed that situation to show me IRONY in myself.  We all have it. 

      Whether it’s someone clearing a shelf, a rude cashier or a Qponer sitting on the floor, let’s not judge each other.  That’s God’s business.  The shelf clearer could be running to a food bank afterwords, the Qponer sitting on the floor could have just had heart surgery and out of breath, and the rude cashier could have just received a call that her Father died.  If we haven’t been there done that yet ourselves, we will.  Let’s join together and help each other here.  After all, we’re really on the same team:  A group of people trying to be as resourceful as possible in this upside down world!  Let’s lift each other up and use the surplus to bless others!  We all desperately need it! 

      P.S.  I prefer the term “Faithful Qponer”

      • Guesswho

        I NEVER EVER will end up with 16 bottles of shampoo cuz i know i dont need that much so why am i going to get it?. just because is free ,no i dont think  your coment make sense 

        • ShoeBoxSherri

           Your profile history is “ironic”. 

          Your very own words: 
          “This is why I’ve always said…being overly bias,tends to make one looks
          stupid! then again,stupid is what stupid does…always get your fact
          and be sure before speaking on any isssue!”

          • ShoeBoxSherri

            God Bless!

      • jenna

         Yes, 16 bottles of shampoo is excessive. Especially since Jenny tells everyone than you only need a supply of 6 weeks worth because that’s about when the sales circle back around. Unless you’re the Duggar’s, there’s no way you can go through that much shampoo in 6 weeks.

        With that being said, I agree that we don’t know everyone’s business nor why they feel the need to hoard that much shampoo. To each his own. My only wish is that I had a bigger CVS to take advantage of the good deals. Mine is very small and the shelves are empty of everything by Sunday night. Not much I can do about that. I have a child in a wheelchair and getting out of the house is not something that I can do easily. When I get there I get there and if the shelves are cleared, then I’m hoping someone else needed it more that I did got it.

        I can’t even imagine shopping for a food bank or shelter, I have a hard enough time trying to get to the store to get the deals for my own family let alone others! Bless ya’ll that can…

      Hi there, for the get the $10 when you buy $30 how does that work with the vitamins that are BOGO?  Since they are $4.49 a piece….do they count the price of the techinically free ones towards the $30?

      • Kenren801

        the free ones do not cout toward total.  Only the ones you pay for….

    • lj

      Oh did I have fun yesterday!  I had rain checks for the speedstick/Irish spring deal from a few weeks ago and was in a different city and decided to check and see if they have it in stock.  ( my local cvs is terrible about having enough stock and this location always has it on the shelf.  And I know couponers go there, because the cashiers know the coupon deals.) And sure enough they did have it in stock.  But it was still marked the same sale price with a different ECB deal.  I got 6 speedstick and 1 bodywash and all the b1g1 coupons scanned at 3.99 instead of 1.99.  I pointed it out and he said if that’s what it scans for, he aint changing it.  Then, it printed out 5.00 ECBs (current week sale) plus he printed out 6.00 ECBs (previous sale).  So I went and got some more bodywash to use up the ECBs. I got 3 more Irish spring and 2 softsoap.  I spent about 3.50 total and got another 5.00 ECBs.  (the paper said 1 deal/household but it did 2 and the cashier said it was fine) Plus, I can submit one transaction for the colgate rebate.  3.50 oop and 10.00 back!  I love it! 
      ps. the hubby was even impressed!  :) 

    • Couponjunkie

      My b1g1 Speed Stick coupons don’t expire until 2/25. It’s listed as expiring 2/15. Maybe a typo?

      • Staci_marie

        Mine expires 2/25 also. 

    • Couponjunkie

      I have a question about the $5 ECB WYB $15 speed stick etc.
      If I buy (8) Speed sticks @ 1.99 each = 15.92 less (4) B1G1 coupons of 7.96 and less 5.00 ECB would be 2.96. That would make each .37.  That’s a much better senario that she listed.

      • Vicki

        Theoretically, you had to pay something for the item in which you earned your ECB. So you’ll have to add that amount to get the true figure for your scenario. Thanks for sharing!

      • lj

        be prepared to adjust your deal.  The b1g1 coupons are scanning 3.99 instead of the cashier typing in 1.99.  I pointed it out and he told me it’s ok, corporate must’ve set it up like that and he isn’t going to change it.  That was fine with me, but I had other things I was purchasing to absorb the overage.  You may want to have something to add to that particular deal just in case the qs ring up 3.99 off.

        • Thom

          Wish I would’ve known that. My cashier adjusted my coupon amount down to $1.99. That’s OK though, I hadn’t banked on $3.99 and I really like that CVS. They have stock and using coupons in multiple trips is so easy!

        • Couponjunkie

          After finding a store today that had them in stock I picked up 8. When she started scanning the coupons they came up 3.99 and I told her that didn’t look right, she thanked me for being honest and rescanned them at 1.99 each. I used $5 in ECB and paid only 3.17 for all 8.

      •  That is a great plan, I try to make deal ideas that don’t require so many of the same coupon for folks that only get 1-2 news papers.  So sometimes the best deal is to buy all of the same product with a lot of the same coupon so if you have them, go for it!

        • Couponjunkie

          I’m lucky I have people at church who bring me their coupons.

    • Staci_marie

      The first ‘printable’ $2 Naturemade Q links to a Riteaid site, where you can print out a MQ for $2 off any Naturemade product.  The link above said it expires today 2-15, but the coupon I printed says its good thru 12/31/12.  They maybe reset it? 

      The other $2 MQ printable link has a $1/any and $2/Coq10. 

      • Staci_marie

         Just realized:  the Natures Bounty vitamins are B1G1.  The coupon links to Naturemade vitamins.  I don’t think they’re the same thing?

        • Staci_marie

           Nevermind.  Naturemade also on sale.  Wish I could edit or delete my own posts!

      • I went to but the Nature made V’s Yesturday. My Cvs said she couldnt scan the Q’s I printed from the rite aid site even though they were MQ. Needless to say i was unhappy! It ruined my 10 off 30 promo amount. She said they must be bogus Q’s. I will be calling my cvs this morning to complain and then i will be returning everything i purchased. 

    • karibeth8

      I went to CVS last night and got the following: 1 Nivea Cream, 1 Got2B Hairspray, 1 Revlon Colorstay Nail Polish, and 1 Hershey’s Pot of Gold.

      I used the following coupons: $4 off of $20, 20% off, 2 ECB, Free Nivea (beauty club), $2 off nail polish (coupon machine), $3 off Revlon, $3 off Got2B.

      Total: $20.07

      Spent: $3.76

      I love CVS!!!

    • Jillssmith79

      Can I use my Cash Card bucks and coupons to get another cashcard, as long as the total before coupons and cash card is $30?

      • Ginger

        Yep you sure can

        • Musiclady0110

           do anyone know if the $10 cash card on $30 purchase carries overage of one purchase to your next purchase??  I made a purchase totaling $46…got a gift card but at bottom of my receipt it said amt toward this gift card $46 amt needed for another card…$30…????  Since you can get up to 5 cards in one week I would think any overage would apply to next purchase. Anyone know???

          • Ginger

            Yes it does but it has to be the items selected for purchase to qualify so if the $46 you spent wasn’t for all things on the selected products it wouldn’t carry those over

    • Pacerin99

      I bought two packages of the bars of irish spring soap and three packages of the bars of softsoap.  I had $2 in coupons and got $5 EB for spending $15.  Is that even a good deal?  I’m still learning and don’t know what the best price tends to be for bars of soap.

      • Cyndi

        Depends on how many bars of soap are in each package.  You spent $8 (before tax and calculating the $5 EB as part of this deal even though you have to use it later).  So divide 8 by the number of bars of soap you got to get your price per bar of soap.  I think some where between 20 and 40 cents is a decent deal.  Obviously close to free is the best deal, but it has been a long time since I have gotten a smokin deal on soap!

    • Bbuff

      I can’t get the printable $3 huggies coupon. Am i doing something wrong. I clicked the link and liked them on FB.

Since you can get up to 5 cards in one week I would think any overage would apply to next purchase. Anyone know??? Gonna be soooo sad if that $16 doesn’t count on a card!!!!

      • pcarmi

        It does count!  If you look at the bottom of your receipt when you “purchase” the gift card…not the receipt of the original transaction…it should show your total correctly.

      • Jtgreg

        It does count  on the next $30 purchase as long as it is in the same week.  After they load your $10 card check the totals at the bottom of that receipt and it should have the correct amounts.  If not, bring it to the attention of the cashier.  At my CVS they can overide anything.  Also, at my CVS if a coupon is less than 1 week outdated they will still honor it.

    • Candace

      Just a heads up.  My CVS has a lot of Pampers diapers on 25% to 50% clearance this week.  I got a huge box of diapers for $11 plus I had a $1.50 coupon.  Made the diapers nearly $.13/each which is normally hard to find.  May want to check the baby aisle if you’re needing diapers.

      • Leah

        Last week I got Overnights diapers for 2$ a pack for the same reason. Always check what’s clearance! Sometimes it is a great deal.

    • went to cvs last night. I got a rain check weeks ago when the company messed up and listed their skintimate/edge shave gels for 3.79 with a 4.00 ecb back when purchased. I got a RC for 4. Went to give cashier (not the same cvs that issued ut though it says you can use at any cvs) and she would not honor it. I was furious. She claimed an email from corporate went out reguarding the miistaken price. Sorry to say, not my problem! Im always ery good about following policies to the T but I did this the ethical way by getting a RC. Between that and the MANU Q;s printed from the rite aid site for NAture made V’s that she said wont scan so she cant take..I was so mad  as I had spent a few hours listing and pricing everything before I left for the store, that now Ive decided to return it all! I usually love cvs but this is ridiculous! I spend a lot there over the year with tolietries, baby items and pharmacy..sorry to say I have to return it. Perhaps another store will work with me. 

      • Jrmartin

        I talked to the Regional CVS Manager in my area about this problem when I had a question about it last week and he did say that stores were told not to honor it.  Even though it’s frustrating/disappointing, the cashier was doing what he/she was told.

      • andi330

        Most stores do have a policy that if they can’t scan a printable Q, they won’t accept it. Some stores will override it if they look at the Q and think it appears to be real, others won’t but it is completely up to the store at that point.

        You might try running a print head realignment on your printer. That’s what the local RiteAid manager suggested to me when some of my Qs wouldn’t scan. If they are out of alignment even a little it can cause the barcode to blur just enough to not scan.

    • my7bracelets

      Anyone needing the Nivea coupons for the CVS deal?  I already have mine and still have 2 sets of coupons left.  Might work great with a raincheck if your store is out of stock right now and you can wait for the coupons in the mail.  Let me know asap (before 11am) and I’ll send them out today.  Email is braceb@wildblue.net

          Apparently the B1G1 Q’s gave me 3.99 off each one even though they were on sale for 1.99. Had no problem with them scanning either

    • Phonebookqueen

      I am LIVID after my shopping experience in Trenton Georgia CVS. I was just accused of photocopying the coupons for the Natures Made vitamins. Then they would not take my ecb or gift card. I called corporate about my experience and was told I would get a call back from the district manager in the next two business days. Did I mention the cashier was the manager and he is always rude to me because he feels that couponers are stealing from the store.

      • tori729

         I was also unable to use my printable Nature Made coupons. Apparently the store I went to has a new policy that only one printable of the same kind can be used per customer. Which doesn’t make sense when some sites let you print two. Oh well, trying another CVS tonight!

      • Melpink531

        that is horrible. my store took my printable nature made coupons no problem. hope your call gets you a quick resolution. so unacceptable.

    • Kellyjd84

      On the sensodyne, can you use both a $5/10 gsk oral product store q from reinventing beauty AND the 2.50/2 sensodyne store q? or is it just one store q?

      • Vicki

        Yes, you may use both, because the $5/10 is actually a manufacturer’s Q.

      • Bosarks89

         My $5/$10 was a cvs coupon (upc starts with “4”).  Cashier would not allow me to use the $2.50/2 cvs coupon in conjunction with it, pointing out the written stipulation on the coupon “coupon cannot be combined with any other cvs coupon”.

        So I used the $5/$10 along with the $2.50/2 manufacturer’s coupon.

        Some cashiers may “push” them both through so be sure to  give the  $5/$10 first to assure you have the $10 requirement.

    • mnesota kuponer

      I am planning on getting the $5 rebate for the colgate-palmolive products. It asks for the UPC information from the products. Do I copy the information and write it on a paper or photocopy it? Thanks for the help. Diana

        they usually want them cut off the product

        I understand why you are asking this question.  Just looked at my copy of the rebate form I mailed in.  It just says send in the “UPC information”.  I actually sent in UPC’s to be on the safe side.  The only time I personally just send in the UPC information is when the rebate form has blanks to fill in the UPC codes.  Happy rebating.

      I have a spend $50 get $10 off reward printed on a receipt and was hoping to be able to pair it with the spend $30 get a $10 gift card deal. If I spend $60, would I be able to get the $10 off and then a $20 gift card, or would I have to have 2 transactions for the $30/$10 deal?

        you could get the 2 30/10 deals in one transaction and would print 2-10 gc s :)

      Nivea deal says limit one but I’ve done it twice and it still says I need $10  for deal – meaning I can do this again ???

      I registered my CVS card and never recieved the $4 off 20 purchase, however, when I scanned my card at the kiosk, it printed out two $5 off 15!! Hooray!

    • ShoeBoxSherri

      Wow!  I haven’t been to CVS in a couple weeks but I’m on my way now!  I just checked my account and had $15 ECB’s to print for the Beauty Club Reward.  Awesome!

      I get my coupons from the Florida Times Union, and I couldn’t find the $1 off Degree Deodorant in the RP 1/29.  Anyone else have this problem???  Thanks!

      • 1couponbug

        Yes, same problem. Mine was $1.50/2…not quite the deal!
