Check your email for a new 25% off coupon at CVS.  They sent them out yesterday and they are good to print through Sunday 12/22.  A personal tip: you can print it on Sunday 12/22 and it will be good all the way through Wednesday. These coupons are good for 25% off your entire purchase, but they do have one catch… they can’t be used on sale items.  You CAN use it on a number of ExtraCare Buck deals though that have products regular priced participating.

Tip: You can only use the coupon once, so make sure everything is in one transaction.

Here’s an idea of what you could get with coupon starting Sunday (next week is better than this week):

Buy:
(2) Maybelline Color Show Nail Lacquer, $3.99
(2) Physician’s Formula Concealer, $7.99
(2) Almay Lip Balm, $5.99
(2) Neutrogena Deep Clean Facial Cleaner, 6.7 oz, $6.99
(1) CVS Neon Toothbrushes, 3 ct., $3.19
(3) Colgate Total Advanced Toothpaste, 4 oz, $3.79
(1) Gillette Venus Razor, $6.99
Use:
-25% off CVS coupon, from email
(2) -$1 off Maybelline Color Show nail lacquer RP 12/08 or printable
-$5/2 Almay cosmetics including makeup removers printable
(2) -$1 off Neutrogena facial cleanser or moisturizer, printable
(3) -$1 off Colgate Total, Optic White, Max Fresh or Sensitive toothpaste, 4 oz+, SS 12/15
-$3 off Gillette Venus razor, excl disposables and trial, RP 12/15
Total Due: $38.60

Get Back: $34 ECB and $5 Beauty Club ECB

That makes it all FREE!!!

Note: Your Beauty Club $5 reward will be available in your account 2-3 days after your purchase.

      nail polish coupon is not coming up for me from your link

    • Fant

      I thought the make-up was a sale item because they are buy 1 get 1 50% off this week. Once I asked a cashier can I use that % coupon on extra care bucks items, they said they were considered sale items. Could you clarify for me because I know you have used these coupons yourself. Sometimes the cashiers don’t know much. Thanks you

      • Amie

        If the item is regular price, the coupon will take 25%off. Sometimes items are regular price and generate ECBs. This coupon will work on those items. I believe it won’t deduct on the BOGO items, but if you buy all the items listed, you earn the $5 beauty buck.

        • Debs.

          Sometimes I’ve noticed that the cashier will say, since they generate ECB then they will not give me the 25% off coupon that I have printed off in my stack of coupons. Today I added the 25% coupon to my card instead, and the cashier asked me if I wanted to use it… if I had known that earlier in the year… wow! what a difference!

    • Linda R

      I can’t find Almay nor Maybelline coupons :-(

    • Tonya M

      I haven’t received my 25% off. :(

    • Amanda

      The percentage off coupons that I receive are always only for shopping online and not in store. Is there any way to get the ones for in the store?

      • Jen

        I gave my email address over the phone when I called corporate about an issue and I started getting the % off coupons for the store. Also, I’ve heard if you tell the cashier you want to update your email they can put it in for you and you will get the store emails.

      • Amie

        I used to get them, but then they stopped. I called the 800 number and was on hold forever only to be told that coupons are based on spending habits and I was not eligible. It doesn’t make sense to me since I shop there a lot.

      • Meekalo

        I only started getting them once I joined the beauty club.

      • Suzanne

        UN sign up for online offers

    • Lesley Moss

      New to CVS how do the ECB work? I looked in the coupon policy. They can be used on the next transaction can be used for anything in the store?
      Thank you!

      • Skirnir Hamilton

        Yes, they can be used on anything in the store and are good for a month. Much easier to use than Walgreens RRs, but CVS prices seem a tad higher IMO.

      • Amie

        I think there are a few things they can’t be used on… gift cards, postage stamps, alcohol, etc.

      • hope

        Yes ecb’s can be used on next transaction for anything except gift cards, tobacco,alcohol and rx’s

    • Melissa

      I think I got an email awhile ago saying that you get $10 beauty rewards ECB instead of $5 through the 31st

    • Bev

      Can’t use % even on mdse that triggers ecb…it’s a no go !????

      • Laurie Schumaker Clarke

        Just used mine today on ecb purchases.

      • debi

        yes you can.

    • Star

      I got a $6.00 off $30.00 beauty today also that could be used woohoo!

    • CathyC

      No Maybelline Color Show coupon and Neutrogena coupon site isn’t working! :(

    • Renee Repp-Luckey

      would love for this scenario to have a checkmark box so could add it to my saved list. :)

    • Amy

      I have signed up for emails for cvs but I do not receive any. I have checked my spam as well. Is there some other way to get the 25% coupon?

      • Julie Ann Kroschel

        Do you have cvs card? I think you need one.

        • Amy

          Thank you. It sent me one. It was for only 20% off, but glad I got one!

          • Julie Ann Kroschel

            Your welcome. Glad you got a coupon!

    • Amy

      I have signed up for emails for cvs but I do not receive any. I have checked my spam as well. Is there some other way to get the 25% coupon?

    • Juan Grande

      You can add the CVS 5-razor to this ^ 25% off list as well.
      Good trip today – I got a bunch of stuff and came out of it net positive by a few cents.

    • Traci

      My coupon was 20 percent off. Hmmm.

    • Newbie

      Be sure to pint another coupon with your almay coupon to avoid big ad printing.

    • Newbie

      Does the beauty club tally up over time? Or do you have to get $50 worth in one transaction to get the ecb?

      • VP22

        It tallies over time.

        • wklsunflower

          but it ends at end of year and starts over at 0

    • Becky Bass Harnett

      I got the 25% email but it only has a code for on line, do I print the email itself?

      • VP22

        If it only has a code for online then unfortunately you can not use that one in store. It’s not the same thing.
