      I don’t think the combos are part of the gift card deal; I think you’d have to buy something else that is to put you over the $30.  Maybe I’m confused, but it doesn’t look like it would work (as listed above).

      • Carolyn

        The gift card deal works even if you’re a few cents short. I bought 3 of the Pro-nutrients ($29.97) and the coupon for the gift card still printed.

      • Emain9

        The gift card will print as low as $29.40, so you can be just shy. The only problem is that the 4 CVSs I visited today were completely clear of the pronutrients as tons of websites are alerting to this deal as early as yesterday. Hopefully the CVSs will get some in their mid week shipments.

      • Couponing_mom3

        the 3 boxes of centrum makes the it 30.00. they are 9.99 a piece. 

    • Tiya

      I used the $5/$30 and it made it only $.97 plus tax. Awesome deal.

    • Flmoehle

      I have all the coupons, three stores in my area completely out.  Got a raincheck, hopefully they will honor my 5 of 30 because it will expire before they come in.  Awesome deal if I can get it.

    • Kal1484

      Good luck finding any in stock, there are only 4 left in the entire Orlando area, and I wasn’t driving 20 miles to get them at 2 different stores. Rain Checks will only work for the items, not the gift cards. :(

    • Erica

      I didnt get the 7 coupon..:(

      • G25670967

        I didn’t either

      • AD

        Don’t feel bad.  My crappy paper didn’t even have  the $5 coupon.

    • Staci_marie

      Just bought one box at CVS @ lunch time.  The CVS I went to had plenty – in several different types.  (I bought a multi-vitamin for women.)

      in v a the machine is giving out 5.00 off

    • Hampshire

      Is the $5 q printing again today if you got one yesterday?

      • Kal1484

        Yup! Got my second one today!

    • ANGELA DRIGGERS

      i dont have either coupon! sucks!

      • Barbara

        Me neither…just printed some though.

    • Osacoupon

      They run out of the pronutrients in bluffton sc.
      :(

      • Barbara

        Get a raincheck! They are great about that! You can still get your giftcard/ecb with it.

        • Laura S.

          My store will issue rainchecks for the price of an item in a girtcard promotion, but they will not issue a gift card when you buy that product if it is after the sales period.

          • Deena

            I would call and double check this policy with customer service.  They should at least give you a CVS gift card if nothing else.

          • Caroline

            I got a raincheck yesterday for the vitamins.  He said that they can’t do the gift card but since I was going to get a CVS one, he just wrote 10 ECB on there!  Now I just have to hope they have them back in stock before 12/25 when the coupons expire!

            • Osacoupon

              I”ll go tomorrow to see if they can do the same for me, thank you much!!!

          • Emily

            Same here! The manager said they can only give rainchecks for ECB, not gift cards. Weird thing is… last time I got the $10 gift card deal, my receipt first printed out a $10 ecb which the cashier just ripped off  and gave me my choice of a gift card. So there really shouldn’t be a problem. I was also told by another cashier (different store) that whenever I get a $10 ECB from any deal, I can always trade that in for a gift card. Idk if that’s true, but i’m willing to try whenever I score 10 ECB! 

    • momm223

      Does any one know if I’ll be able to use 3 $5 off coupon for pronutrient from red machine and 3 manufacture coupons? That would be awsome but i dont think i can….

      • Anonymous

        I can’t speak for 3 and 3 but today I did use 3 $5 manu q’s and 2 $5 CVS q’s with no problem at all.

      • Jessica S. Dunn

        You should be able to. The coupons from the red machine are considered store coupons so it’s basic stacking. For example: Today I went to CVS, got 3 American Greetings cards for $1.99 each, used a $1/3 manu. coupon, and a $1/2 greeting cards CVS coupon from the red machine. My question is how’d you get 3 of those coupons from the machine lol?

        • momm223

          $5 off for pronutrient is printing everyday (since Sunday) . I never try using more than one like coupon from red machine for same items. This money maker deal is so cool but the problem is how many items  in sotre. 

      • Joevvjoe

        i just did!!! go for it!!!

    • Precious2mama

      Ok! Help! So I bought two boxes at one store using (2) $5 MQ (1) $5 Beauty ECB (1) $5 red machine..paid $1.33…I need one more and I have (1)$5 red Machine and (1) $7…well that means I will have overage…will I just lose it??? OR can I buy the combos to take the difference and make ECB’s in the process.

      • Jessica S. Dunn

        I would buy the combos to take the difference. Then your transaction should be like the 2 scenarios Jenny listed in the post.

    • Robin Lacey

      I haven’t been to CVS in a while and I’m so glad I stopped in yesterday to see what was printing! The coupon machine gave me 2 of those $5 coupons, one today and one yesterday. Thankfully I had 2 $7/1 from sundays paper and a $5/1 from last month. My local CVS’s were out of the vitamins so I did drive an extra 15 miles on a hope and a prayer that the more out of the way locations had some in stock. And they did!
      I bought 3 bottles of the fruit and veggies and paid $2.77, and got back the $10 gift card. $7.23 MM

    • Vehightower

      Just went to my CVS in Columbus, GA and they were all out of the ones that were on sale for 9.99….but in the spot it said they were Centrum Silver Chewables? Are the $7 off coupons good on those as well?>

    • Kimberlyn

      Charlotte NC newspaper and Rock Hill Herald- NO coupons at all in SS from yesterday for these vitamins :(

      • Laren_erasmus

        I checked also, NO coupons ):

        • Cynthia

          The coupon is in the Charlotte Observer SS 11/06.  I went to CVS in Belmont tonight, they had plenty!!!  The $5 CVS coupon didn’t print until the second time I put my card in the red coupon machine

      • mightymousemom

        Checked also, not in the Charlotte Observer…so disappointed :(

      • Sdritchie

        they were in hickory daily record paper

    • April

      If you don’t want to buy 3 vitamins..I bought 2 vitamins using 2, $7 coupons. Scott paper towels and tissue using $2 coupon when you buy both. Also had coupon print at the machine for 5 off. Then 4 EB from last week. My total with tax came to 8.40. I got the shell gift card. I’m so happy..Yeah!!  I got the last vitamins @ cvs in a pensacola store.

      • Guest

        I was buying them when they were 12.99 each and deal $5 ECB when you are buying $30.00 or more.  Even at that time I couldn’t  find any fish oil vitamins to make that deal. I went to 4 different store to complete a deal and had to buy veggie. And all of these stores were out of Pronnutricion evern before Saturday. So i am getting a rain check, but have a vey small hope that it will be restock soon.

    • Kimberlyn

      My CVS only had 2 bottles left, but it worked out better.  2 at $10 each, minus (2) $5 off coupons, and the one red machine coupon for $5.00.  Both  bottles for $5.00 total and they count for $20 towards a gift card.

      If they don’t get the vitamins back in stock, I will buy another product to count towards the final $10 gift card.

      If the machine does print $5 daily, it would be worth breaking it up into different trips on different days. 

      • Phairplu

        Yep, that is what I did this morning.  I bought 2 used (2) $7 off q and (2) $5 off CVS q, total oop .97.  I plan on going back tomorrow (stores near me re-stock on Tuesday night), hopefully another $5 off q will print, I have another $7q, i will buy a combos to get over the $30, get a $10 gift card and $2 ecb, great deal!

        • Phairplu

          I messed up, the combos was to get the ecb, and i used 1 cvs manufacturer q  (sorry!)

    • I didn’t get the $7 coupon in my Birmingham news. I’ll have to look and see if I have the $5 coupon from 11/13. I have a $5/$30 purchase coupon for CVS which will make it a money maker after my coupon machine and the $5 coupon. :) Maybe my store will have it in stock if I get to go back.

    • Crownstar

      There is also a $3.00 Q for Centrum in All You magazine..pg 40

    • Katigurl

      Went to 4 different CVS stores and they were cleaned out! At one store, an employee told me a woman and her friends bought out the entire stock! That really irks me. 

    • Lea Smith

      I went two CVS last night and one was sold out, but the other had three boxes left, so I grabbed them, and with the $5 CVS coupon plus the 3 $7 MC, plus a $5 off $30 CVS coupon I got last week via email, my total came to $1.02 plus I got a FREE GC! I love it! I plan to repeat the same deal tomorrow with the remaining coupons I have plus ECBs!

    • Dawg4

      Went to Augusta CVS yesterday.  The red machine did not print a Pronutrient coupon, instead it was a $3 off any CVS vitamins–ugh!  Then they were out of the Pronutrient vitamins.  I will try a different CVS store today.

      • Anonymous

        Try again.  I received a $5 off Pronutrient in North Augusta, SC so hopefully you will get it.  What stores have you tried to find the Pronutrient at in Augusta?  Going to buy today.  Wanted another $5 off coupon. 

      • guest

        you must scan your card mutiple times until the machine says no more coupons today….dont ever just scan your card just once  i work there and i scan my card at least 2 to three times a day when i am there 

    • Noelle C.

      Love CVS!! The CVS closest to my house only had 1, so I bought it anyway since the price was so low so I could try it out.  I called around and found a CVS with 2 on the shelf, which they put on hold for me up front.  It’s a bit away from home, but had some errands to run in that area anyway, so went to pick them up/check some things off my to do list.  Arrived at CVS, and they had pulled the wrong ones – the 100 ct. were shelved where the 50 ct. should be.  They were out of 50 count.   Manager rang the 100 ct. up as 50 ct. so the gift card deal would still work.  Really went out of his way for customer satisfaction and I didn’t even have to ask!  Impressive!

    • Julie

      Heads up for people in Waco, TX.  There is an Asian couple (Chinese perhaps?  definitely not Korean) who clear the shelves at the 24 hour CVS EVERY week.  They each have a card because “they don’t live in the same household.”  I went there to get the Centrum, I only wanted 3 as I am NOT a shelf-clearer.  I looked high and low but could not find but the 100 count.  Somehow the Asian couple managed to find 6 fifty count boxes.  Even the employees couldn’t figure out where they had gotten them.  Hide much?

      • mrs.chevez

        omg I live in dallas Tx. They come here too! lol I’m thinking there prob. the same it is rare to see asian ppl around here.

      • guest

        I do not like your comment.  I am tempted to say more – but I will be a lady and refrain from doing so.

    • Lori

      At my CVS the pronutrient were 20.99 and were not included in the gift card deal. I dont know if it was a mistake on my store or if it is just because of different areas.

      • KGould

        they’re smaller size, 50ct is on sale. 20.99 is prob. 100ct. I couldn’t find any at 2 different CVS….

    • OMG!! What a score! I just got back from CVS with 3 Centrums…used 3 $7 coupons + $5 from red machine + $4 off any $20 purchase of vitamins, so all were free + I received a $10 gift card. My best deal ever…….been couponing since September.

      • Anonymous

        When and where did you get your $4/20 of vitamins? 

        • Vab0914

          The $4/20 was out of the CVS red machine a few days back and due to expire 12/16

    • Srgordon

      Just a heads up target has a similar deal only a five dollar gift card but you can pair the $7 mq with $2 q and price match to cvs to get them for $.99 a box and get the five dollar gift card make $3.02 in profit, but if they allow the five dollar cvs coupon than pay nothing and get filler items if target will allow that

    • momoffive

      Is there a limit on how many $10 dollar gift cards you can earn?

      • Jennifer

        5 a week.

    • Jennifer

      So I purchased 2 boxes of the Centrum yesterday, used my $4/20 purchase CVS q, a $5 Centrum CVS q, and 2 $5 Centrum manf q’s. Today I got to a different store to find one last box to get the gift card and I realize that I don’t have the manf q for that box – I had the CVS $5 Centrum q though, as it printed out again today. I’ve never done this before, but is there any way to return the item, and re-buy it using the manf q even though I’ve already redeemed the gift card voucher? I’ll gladly take a store credit, just curious if anyone has ever done this before when a gift card is involved (I’ve done it before with an item that gives ECBs back after I forgot my manf q’s). I guess I wonder if I’d still get credit for the $5 CVS q I used the first time as well?

      • Garradeosahinchada

        Just present your receip and the coupon and told them u forgot to used the coupon, they will give u the $5 or the coupon value!!!
        Cvs is the best!!! ;)

    • Mcleodsc

      Both CVS stores in Sumter SC is out. I called Bishopville CVS and cashier said they did not have any. Looks like I missed out on this deal!

    • Katigurl

      Well, I have now visited 7 different stores in the last day and there is not a single one to be found anywhere! I even went back today because some of the stores got their trucks in this AM, but they didn’t get any! Ugghh

      • Candicami

        Ok… So as you don’t feel along, I have visited 5 stores in the past two days myself and called multiple stores as well.  None anywhere.  I don’t think I will get the deal for the GC promotion, but I’m hoping to still get the vitamins before my coupons expire because it is still a good deal.  darn!

    • JenneyG

      I had the $5 coupon from the machine on Sunday and when I saw this post on Monday I had my husband stop at cvs on the way home from work to scan the card so got the 2nd $5 sq. I went to the cvs this morning to score the deal, of course 3rd one printed after scanning. I used 3 $5 sq plus 3 $7 mq(had to fill up with $6 stuff because they don’t give cash back) and got $10 gift card. It’s a $16 money maker and would be $21 if I hadn’t used my $5/25 already. On top of that, my store doesn’t have any of the 50 count left which participates the gift card deal so the manager substituted 2 bottles of 100 count. At checkout he rang up the 50 count bar code 3 times so I had the right price needed and was able to use right amount coupons. Not too shabby…

    • Leanna

      ANOTHER GOO DEAL if you got that $5/1 dulcolax 24 ct. CVS q from red machine: Sale Price this week is $4.99.
      Use $5 CVS q and
      $1 q from either SS 9/11 or SS 10/30 for a
      $1 moneymaker! 

      If you buy with Centrum trans will only spend $4.97 out of pocket:))

      • Lizy

        Also, there is a $2 printable dulcolax Q showing in the coupon database…going right now to try this :)

    • Easley54

      NO CENTRUM COUPONS . RED MACHINE PRINTED $5.00 OFF $20.00 NATURE MADE VITA. I BOUGHT REG PRICE $30.00 WORTH THEY WERE B1G1 CASHIER WOULD NOT LET ME USE THE 5.OO C. SAID THE 5.00 OFF WAS ON $20.00 SUBTOTAL PRICE.  BAD DAY FOR VITA.

      • Amy

        The cashier was correct. You have to hit twenty after store discounts (but before coupons).

    • Jessica S. Dunn

      None of my inserts has the $7 coupons. Does anybody have any extra that they’d be willing to send/give me PLEASE???? I’m willing to trade for something you need! :D Thanks!!

    • Products81

      Ok Im new to this,but what is combo$2?? I didnt even relize I had these coupons from machine for the $5. I am new and went to the store and I was getting annoyed I kept getting the same coupons..Then I checked Here and know i feel silly, cause I have the 3-$5off from machine and also 3-$7 from insert, but I dont know what combo means, I would love this if they are still around tommorrow..

      • Rlhx2

        combos are just a snack…. like chips, but you know Combos, the pretzels filled with cheese…lol!!!  :)

      • Products81

        ok, i figured it out lol, i looked in the ad, its the chips..ok, well I hope that I can get this tommorrow and that they are not all out

      • Janathorne

        combos pretzel/crackers snacks

    • Foxygardner

      There are 5 stores in my area and all 5 have been out of the vitamins all week. All but one store said they didn’t have them to begin with.

    • Lzbacnik

      I was told by a friend of mine who works at CVS that the employees were told on Monday to pull all the Centrum ProNutrients off the shelves for the week. I guess CVS is aware of what a good deal this is?

      • Asmith

        I was wondering if that was the case. I checked Monday and no stores in my area had any not even one .

      • Katigurl

        That’s isn’t cool. CVS is getting reimbursed by the manufacturer, so what’s the big deal/ I wish they would limit the amount that people can buy, so that there would be some for the rest of us. 

      • guest

        thats bs i work for cvs and we would never be told to pull items off the shelves  unless for a product recall  must be a managers issue 

    • Melissa

      I’m a little confused.  My CVS ad indicates the Combos as an extra bucks reward not the free gift card promotion.  With the purchase of the 3 Centrum vitamins wouldn’t you have to purchase another “free gift card” item indicated in the ad to receive the free gift card?  Thanks for any clarification!

      • Asmith

        you don’t have to buy combos to get GC deal but just free. Good luck finding vitamins.

        • Melissa

          I was just confused on how you can get the free gift card if you only spend $29.97 for the vitamins. Do you know? Thanks!

          • Kimberlyn

            Melissa, you will get the GC for that amount. It does not have to be exactly $30. I believe I had read it has to be $29.40.  

          • wendy n.

            tax puts you well over 30.00

    • Guest

      Thank you so much for this! Money is very very tight for my family right now! This is day three and I have used the $10 to buy Shell gas cards….Fortunately I had some the $7Q’s. Day 1: three centrums $29.97 (Used $5ECB, $7MQ, (2)$5MQ, $5Redbox), paid $2.97 recv’d $10)
      Day two( Used (2) Redbox (2) $5…$20 towards GC…Going today (day 3) to buy third bottle and get $10GC…paying $3 for $20in gas a no brainer… As for the vitamins, my sister and granny uses this brand and at $12 a bottle they are expensive on a fixed income, now they are set for the year. Thank you so much to Jenny and everyone else for all you do!

    • Pjv_gma

      Jenny, the probiotic one isn’t on sale for $9.99 its regular price 19.99 here in Alabama CVS…is anyone else finding this problem…Thanks for your great site! PV

      • Mcleodsc

        the 100 ct is 19.99 and not part of the deal-the 50 ct is the one for 9.99 and the deal

      • Emily

        Here in FL the probiotic one isn’t on sale either. I asked the cashier about it last night and she just rang me up for $9.99, so I was able to use 2 coupons and get it free. Only problem…it isn’t part of the gift card deal!

      • Jennifergaley

        Yes, I live in Alabama…I didn’t realize this was the case until I got to the register. :(

    • Jennifer

      If I have 2-$5/1 q’s from the CVS red machine and 3 man q’s for $5/1 of the Centrum vitamins, can I use all 5 q’s if I buy 3 vitamins? I am thinking yes since 2 are store q’s. Also, can we get rainchecks for the giftcard deals? Thanks in advance!

      • Guest

        Yes you can…

      • How do you get more than one q from the CVS red machine without using a different card? I didn’t think you could use q’s from the CVS red machine if they are from a different card number???

        • tina

          the same coupon is printing everyday so i went mon tues and wend and got three coupons and use 3 7.00 coupon and got some other things that i needed with the overage

          • Ahhh. Now I see. I wish I lived close enough to a CVS to go every day. : (

      • tina

        yes you can use all five coupons i did this today and no cvs doesnt give rainchecks for the gift cards

        • Malissa

          You have to ask and they will.

      • Jessica S. Dunn

        My store did a raincheck for the vitamins at the sale price and wrote on the Raincheck for me to get back $10 in ECB in place of the gift card.

    • Phairplu

      This week has been great for the gift card promotion.  I got one with the scott toilet paper/paper towel scenario and 1 with b1g1 (50%) caltrate+D and centrum multis (I take these daily, so used ECBs earned on Black Friday to score this one), and I did the pronutrients deal twice (had to research several stores to find, but did find them in Riverview Florida. 

    • trying

      Today…I walked out of CVS with 2 bottles of Pronutrients for FREE!!! I had 2  $5 off MQ and 2 $5 off CVS red machine Q.  Plus I got 2 scott tissue and 2 scott paper towels and 2 boxes of nabisco graham cracker…had Q for all of them. Total oop  was $16 got back $20 in gift cards!!! Cool!

    • JLK

      Come on people!  I’ve been all over town to 3 CVS stores everyday since Sunday and can’t even get 1 bottle of vitamins  because of all you guys going back and back every day clearing the shelves.  Let’s share the love!!!

      • Katigurl

        You’re not the only one. I have been to 7 since Monday and nothing!! I was angry to hear that at one store, a woman a 2 of her friends bought out the entire stock on Sunday. Not cool. :(

        • Rachel

          I did the same thing today – 3 CVS stores.  Zero pronutrients left. :(  No rain checks allowed.  At least next week vitamins are B1G1 50% off, so I can still get 3 for $30, and use my 3 red machine coupons and 3 man coupons to get them for free plus a little overage.  Not as good as the $10 gift card I would have gotten tonight but oh well!

    • Products81

      I went today and wow was i shocked to have to go to 5 stores!! and Nothing!! I was told by one store that people will hide items throughout the store..really? ugh, 2hours wasted. i mean this was going to be my 1st ever time to see what it was like to get a great deal. now im drained and not happy :( not a good 1st impression on a newbie :( thanks

      • Katigurl

        You can’t give up There are some awesome deals to be had at CVS. What I usually do is go to a 24 hr store at midnight Saturday/Sunday and get the deals that night. That way I can sleep in Sunday morning and I don’t have to worry about them running out. If I had known about this deal in time, I would have gone on the very first day. Keep your head up. :) All it takes is you getting one awesome deal and you will see how great CVSing can be! Good luck!

        Keep Going! When you get your first deal it’s a Rush! My first deal was at CVS for iced tea. I got four iced tea’s and was charged .34 cents afte coupons. I was so excited that I discovered a treasure chest. I’ve also driven to many stores to find emtpy shelves but there have been many times where the items are there waiting for me. CVS and other stores are in fault becuase they stock very few on the shelves. Life will give you lemons and you make lemonade! I have the same experience with Target, finding empty shelves. But keep it up becuase you will find that it’s all worth it!

        I find the best thing to do is look at the list on sat. night and head to CVS first thing sun. morning.I’m usually able to find the deals that way.

          thats what i do!!

            I find it best to go on Friday morning because my CVS is unloading their restock shipment then

            • Snowdogmom

              No restock of Centrum Pro Nutrients this Friday morning. I went to 2 in the Charlotte NC Area and the shelves were still bare. Manager said they must be out at the warehouse she had called around and no one had them. They say a truck is coming but not everything is restocked.

        CVS really does have the best deals, this vitamin things is just a really incredible one, with all the high dollar coupons and the stacking.  My stores are never really prepared for the way some people do this.  If everybody is taking all the vitamins they are buying we should all be a healthy lot!!!

        My schedule doesn’t always allow me to look at the sales Saturday nights or go out on Sunday mornings. When I first started couponing I might spend hours doing prep work only to get to the store and find things were gone, and I would feel really discouraged, upset, stressed out, and frustrated. So I decided to change my attitude and just not worry about it. I don’t spend any time doing transactions before I go to the store, I just figure it out once I get there and see what’s available. And I don’t let myself get too disappointed if I miss sales. Even if I miss the very best sale, I still get great deals!! Tracking the percentages and cost savings has been really helpful and encouraging as well! I’ve saved an average of at least 50% on groceries and personal care items and that is AWESOME! :-) Don’t let yourself get too upset or beat yourself up, you’re still getting great deals!!!

      I was unable to find them too.  But they did give me a raincheck.  So if the CVS coupons and the Manufacturer coupons are stackable(which they are), they would still be free with the raincheck, but you wouldn’t get the gift card.

    • Jen

      Maybe we’re all just passing each other as we loop around the city going to different CVS stores in search of the vitamins!

    • Mcclellanda79

      I have a question about this deal. If I’m lucky enough to be able to find 2 bottles of Centrum and I have 2 $7/1 manu qs and 2 $5/1 CVS q does CVS change the value of the CVS coupon down to 2.99 since the product is only $9.99 or will I get the full value of both coupons.

      • Lauramichelledriscoll

        usually the register will beep and they will have to adjust it down.  cvs doesn’t give overage, so the “money making” part is through the gift card, or ecb if that’s the case.

        • Mcclellanda79

          Thanks. I thought so but wanted to clarify.

          • scorpiosaver

            If you have money left over you can make an additional purchase.  My CVS won’t give a store credit.  I was over $2 and I bought some gum (for free!).

    • Keshalewis5

      I’m buying 3 bottles totaling $29.97 and I have 2 coupons per bottle to use totaling $30 which makes this deal a $10 moneymaker!!! Love CVS!!!!

    • Danabond9685

      Okay my southern saver couponers…I have asked a few people this question and I have gotten mixed answers. I want to do the gift card deal. If I buy 60 dollars worth of stuff will I get printouts for two gift cards or do I need to do two separate transactions? I have never shopped at CVS so I am unsure how this works.

      • Holliejojolly

        You have to do two seperate transactions on two SEPERATE cards.

        • scorpiosaver

          You don’t have to do two separate transactions. For the gift card promotion this week you can get up to 5 gift cards. The computer keeps a count of how much you’ve spent toward a certain promotion.  For example, if you spend $21.05 one trip on eligible items, then spend $8.95 on eligible items while the circular is still good) on another trip–after you spend the money on the second trip you’ll get a gift card.  I’d been doing separate transactions and didn’t realize that until a few days ago.  

          Also, because you can get up to 5 gift cards you can use one rewards card since you want only two.

    • Sweetmelissa1220

      I have read on other deals just wondering if it works or not- the gift card deal on purchase you loose out on when using a raincheck and others say you get $10ecb in place of the gift card when using raincheck on the deal?? Does anyone know for sure or have any insight?

      • Suzi

        mine won’t even give rainchecks for items on the gift card deal.

      • Keshalewis5

        My Cvs in Simpsonville, SC is giving $10 ecb with a raincheck.

        • CouponPrincess

          Which location in Simpsonville?

          • Keshalewis5

            Fairview Rd

      • Rlhx2

        Ive been to 3 locations here in Summerville, and all say they are giving ecb instead of gift card!  I personally think, they should still give the gift cards.  But, I guess, whatever!  I was really looking forward to giving the gift cards i got to my mailman!!

    • mommaofcrazypants

      This was a great deal! Also, my CVS had tons of makeup and nailpolish marked down this week on clearance, most of it was 75% off. Got several bottles of Sally Hansen for .85 for stocking stuffers! Love CVS, even when they are out of one thing I’d like to do a deal on, I ALWAYS find something equally as good. 

    • momm223

      ProNutrient 50ct is 6.99 at military commissary. use $7 off coupon make it free. I couldn’t get great deal at CVS so I used it today before coupon expires.

    • Jessica S. Dunn

      I tried several days this week to get this deal (had the coupons, store never had the product) even after getting their truck in Friday. So the store manager wrote me a raincheck today for the sale price and said he couldn’t get me the gift card with it but did write on the raincheck $10 back in ECB! :D LOVE my CVS!
