Have I mentioned lately that I love CVS Pharmacy?  I do.  Today I feel like giving them a hug through the computer.

CVS corporate has updated their coupon policy to include very detailed, clear instructions on Buy One Get One sales and coupons.  They even gave examples!  Honestly I don’t see any room for “grey interpretation” here.

The New Addition:

  • Two coupons may be used on a Buy One, Get One Free promotion as long as it does not exceed the item total
    Ex. Suave Shampoo is on sale for $2.00 Buy One, Get One Free and the customer is purchasing two shampoos; customer may use two coupons for $1.00 each and pay the applicable tax.
  • Buy One, Get One Free promotions may be combined with Buy One, Get One Free Coupons. Customers are responsible for paying applicable tax
    Ex. Suave Shampoo is on sale for $2.00 BOGO and customer has a MFG coupon for Suave BOGO. Customer will receive both items for free but will need to pay any applicable tax.

To see their entire policy head over here.  If there are areas that you think still need improvement or clarity they would probably love to hear it, so leave a comment if you have one and I’ll share it with them.
