The CVS magic coupon machine (more commonly know as the coupon center) is printing a fun freebie coupon this week.  Most folks seem to be getting a coupon for a FREE illy Ready to Drink Beverage 6.4-8.4 oz.  These are kept in the refrigerated section in many stores.

Did you get any other fun coupons from the machine this week?

Don’t miss all the deals at CVS this week, it’s a fun week!

    • nancymac

      It printed the $5 off $20 facial skin care purchase and $1 off CVS Tampons 22ct or more and the free Illy drink coupon for me.

    • Salovescb

      The illy drinks were $2.00 and the coupon covered $2.49, love overage on other things in my transaction!

      • Anonymous

        Oh, you’re right! I didnt even notice. Looks the kind of coupon that will print once per day. I’m spreading out this week’s purchases so I’ll have an excuse to visit multiple times. :)

        • lpn4now

          I got two coupons tonight!!!

      • MarisaP

        They adjusted mine to $2.00 and wouldn’t give me the overage on my makeup. :(

        • Mcleodsc

          depends on the cashier! some believe that they have to adjust each coupon down even if only a penny or two and others (who know that the store will get reimbursed the full amount plus 8 cents)  allow the full amount!

    • Ashley Fizer

      My husband was in charge of using the magic coupon machine while I ran to the Cover Girl area to grab the blush.  He came running toward me like a kid would asking “can I use this one!?”  He was so happy to get a coffee treat for coming with me today.

      • Anonymous

        Very cute! DH never shops with me. He’d rather wait in the car. He gets embarrassed when the cashiers scrutinizes my Qs and rejects some. And gets more embarrassed when i challenge them. He is beyond mortified when I take an unwanted Cat at Kroger!

      • shelly

        Very cute!  My cashiers all ask where my husband is when he doesn’t come with me!  LOL!  I love that they know us so well… YAY! for awesome supportive hubbies!!

    • Faithhopelove1297

      Wahoo! Scanned both cards 2x and got 1 free .50 in ECB! I know, it’s not much, but free money! yeah!!!!!  Got 3 ECB for buying 1 thing of cosmetics, for L’oreal!

      • Katie

        Why do you have 2 cards? It’s one per household….

        • Savn2gether

          When I signed up for a card at my CVS, the employee said it was fine for my husband and I to both get a card. She even said to make sure we provided different phone numbers to make sure they wouldn’t be linked together. They said it was fine for me to use both cards even if my husband couldn’t come with me. The same thing happened at Rite-Aid. It probably depends on the store and the employee you talk to…. In contrast, when I asked at Harris Teeter, customer service said 1 per household.

          • Phatpatswife

            That employee was wrong.

            • LeAnna

              My son and his gf(one unit)-have a house. My dd rents a room and they also have a third roommate. All three are in the same house-but they al three live independently. They all buy their own household items and food seperately. So your saying this over and over w/out knowing situations is quite wrong imo. Even at HT they all have seperate cards. Additionaly, I carry a copy of their cards w me(son and dd) in case I am in the store and pick up their rx’s or see something they need..and i can get it cheap for them. I dont see anything wrong w this at all.

            • Phatpatswife

              I’m not saying I made up these rules, i’m not even the only one saying it’s not right. I know everyone has different situations. I hear those different scenarios all the time. But everyone has to admit here that not all people are honest people buying for their 85 year old dad (or whatever the case may be) and they are taking advantage of the system. And I don’t call these people out when i’m working and ringing them up, it’s not up to me to make a split judgment decision like that nor would I want too. But I have a right, just like everyone else, to express my opinion and what I know about these things on a blog. I’m effected by this just like everyone else because I coupon too

              My point is that not everyone’s doing it for the right reasons and those people are ruining it for others. Am I wrong in pointing out how often people complain that they didn’t get to go by their expected list for shopping because of shelf clearers? Happens to me every week just like everyone else. I mean this is nothing new, so why is everyone so surprised that I (along with some other people I might add) point out how this effects everyone?

            • KTA

              well it really shouldnt matter to you, the more customers, the more extracare accounts, the more business for your store.  Which means you keep your job.  I think that should be more important to you then getting upset that someone got two free toothpastes, which in most of our cases, are being donated to a shelter or someone in need!

          • coupons4kids

            More than one person can have a card, yes. However, they are suppose to be linked.  Meaning you can still only get one deal per household.  My husband and I both have cards but our limits are combined.  It is the rules of cvs.

        • Debi

          I agree.  I see this all the time and I think that is VERY unfair to those of us that follow the rules.  

          • Czalinsky

            And like I said above… So u have Never went to Wags and did several Transactions for the same product when it clearly states Limit 1? I really wish people would get off their high horse about this. Yes I only have 1 honestly becuz it hard enough trying to keep up with everything.. If I could keep up with it I would use my husbands card That he has had since before we met…

        • Anonymous

          My husband’s insurance company sent him a special CVS card that is separate from my card.  He gets 20% off the regular price of CVS generic OTC medications with his card but he can buy other things with it, too.  That’s why we have two cards in our household.  Plus, I also do alot of my 87 year old mom’s shopping at CVS so I have her keytag, too.  So there are times when I use 3 cards on one shopping trip but I’m not doing anything wrong.

          • DianneL

            And we have two cards in our household because our college grad lives with us and has her own card. She is responsible for her own purchases. From my answer and pdnr’s answer it seems there are legitimate reasons to have more than one card per household.

          • V_wainright

            I agree. I have a son going off to college. He will have his own CVS card over 18 because he will live in another city. I would not justify myself to others on this blog, it seems some people jump to conclusions. One woman just sent me a nasty reply because I did not agree with her post. I was polite. We are all in this together.

          • Brooke

            My insurance company sent me the same card, you can call and have the cards combined. I didn’t want to hassle with 2 cards, but using all my extra bucks and switching was also going to difficult, so I called they combined my cards and then I could use the ECBs from my old card with my new card and pitched the old card. That was last year and this year my company switch insurance providers, but CVS is still giving me 20% off :)

          • KTA

            i have this same CVS card, its white, my regular (and first) CVS card is red.  My insurance mailed it to me, so of course I used it.  So yes, I have 2, but my husband doesnt have one so we still have 2 between the 2 of us.  I didnt ask for or sign up for another card.  Also, the policy is one per person per household.  This is obviously true because in college all 4 of my roommates had a card.  Dont think they would limit to one per “household.”

        • Spoony4u09

          It’s one card per person age 13 and over in your household! She posted that on the site several months ago. I have one, My husband has one, my mom has one. However i don’t always use all of them, except if there is a deal that i need to get, and i plan ahead i let the store manager know what i need or what i am going to need at that point in time  and if they know something is going to be free i inform them of which card i will be using and if i will be using mine and other’s cards.

          • follow coupone rules

            It is not on card per person, it is ONE per HOUSEHOLD.  People like you are going to cause these stores to not offer deals at all one of these days!

      • Guest

        Really? I was unaware of that.  Me, my husband, and my daughter all have one.

        • Amy

          You shouldn’t have more than one card.  that is unfair to the rest of us that follow the rules.

        • Austin

          My wife, my two very young daughters, my dog Rover, my dog Sammy, my dog Rocket, my ferret Peter, my cat Joey, my cat Fizzle, my hamster Clyde, my two birds Kiki and Lulu, my turtle Gerty, my teddy bear Shocker and my imaginary friend Mr. Pickles all have CVS cards and yes we live in the same house!

      • Phatpatswife

        You should really only have one. If 3 people in your household have one then 3 free illy drinks were given to your household alone. Now they will certainly run out this week before everyone gets to use their coupons and in your case you will have gotten two when someone wasn’t even able to get one. That’s why it’s not fair.

        And to those who say they were told by an employee that it’s ok, that employee was wrong. Just like when people get away with inappropriately using coupons, just because a cashier let you do it, doesn’t make it right.

        And this is coming from a cvs cashier….me.

        • V_wainright

          stop preaching to others, you don’t know them or their family situation

          • Phatpatswife

            That doesn’t matter. And i’m pretty sure she explained her situation. Don’t like it, go read another blog. You must be a shelf clearer since you don’t like it so much!

            • V_wainright

              and you are clearly a very angry person..I get tired of reading negative blogs where you jump to any conclusion because you have a nasty attitude. I am glad you are not my cashier. I have every right to read and NOT like your post. You were not instructtive to her, you were rude. Maybe she did not know. Maybe she takes care of many others.

            • Phatpatswife

              I rarely right posts at all, let alone writing negative blogs to anyone else, so perhaps you are confusing me with someone else. I gave her an example why having more then one card isn’t appropriate.

            • Mcleodsc

              I had to go back and read your comments. I think we should follow the rules! I personally know others that do have multiple cards. I have decided to only worry about myself and whether I follow the rules-which I do. I can understand someone shopping for an elderly/disabled relative/friend having that persons card and making purchases for them, so I do not judge if I see a second card. If I see more than 2 cards, then I know they are probably not following CVS’s rules of one per household. I think it is up to the manager to speak up and tell them they can only have one per household. I think it is important to make NEW COUPONERS aware of the one per household rule. It is possible that some NEW COUPONER might not know the rules yet. I did not think you were rude in commenting.

            • Phatpatswife

              I agree completely. It’s not up to me to try  to stop a customer from using more then one card. However it’s not like I don’t notice, ya know? And I also agree about new couponers. I had a customer come in once who had her husband and 2 daughters with her. She signed up for one and I explained the jist of how it works and the perks that come along with it and she said oh then let my husband and girls sign up for one too and I explained that it’s 1 per household. She said oh ok. I also explained the age limit. Probably a week or two later she came in with her daughters and they each had their own cards and did the same transactions 3 times over. It happens all the time and these are the instances i’m talking about. But again, i’m not going to say something to someone, it’s not my place. If the store manager feels the need to do so then they can, but that’s not my place.

              Thank you for not thinking I was being rude. I didn’t get rude until someone jumped on me, which of course is human nature. But I didn’t think my original comment was rude, informative and to the point, but not rude. Thanks again.

            • Czalinsky

              So u ging into WalGreens and doing several different Transactions to get the RRs is different How? The add says Limit 1 on everything

            • Phatpatswife

              I don’t shop at walgreens. And when I did, over a year ago and stopped because they were too darn stressful, I did abide by the one limit rule. If I go to walgreens it’s on rare occassion for something amazing. Like this week I was going to go there and get the capri suns and jelly, but ended up at Sam’s with my mother in law first and they were better priced there so I skipped Walgreens yet again.

              omg get over yourself! If you don’t like it don’t read the gosh darn blog and get a new darn job, but hum i bet you can’t because the economy is so bad…. yeah don’t need to say anymore!

            • Phatpatswife

              I’m perfectly fine in my job thanks, however there is no reason why I can’t express my opinion just like you!

          • lpn4now

            I agree…if you don’t know the family situation you shouldn’t judge her. I wish I had more than one card. I have a family of 12 and could really use the savings!!!

        • Anonymous

          If I was the manager of the store where you work, I would definitely fire you with your nasty attitude. It really doesn’t take long for a customer (a person that pays your wages) to find out when a cashier is so hell bent on making a fool of themselves, a visit to your store is a big mistake. Your job should be to help the customer understand the coupon policy, not get on the blogs and show your behind….by the way what CVS store do you work at?

          And I AM a CVS store manager!

          • Phatpatswife

            First of all my place of employment isn’t your concern because of a blog comment. Also, how can you determine based on a blog comment what my attitude is? This is a blog afterall, get over yourself. And I never said I stop people from using multiple cards…..I don’t have the power, you do though. I just know the results of their unfair use of multiple cards. Let’s slow down a bit and stop jumping to conclusions based on what you read on the internet.

            Second of all, if you are a store manager then you as well know exactly what I said is the truth. Right? I didn’t show my behind, if anything, I said what everyone else is saying and reiterated that the other posters are correct in saying she should only have one card. The explanation of one household getting multiple drinks is a pretty good explanation of how and why the coupon policy is set the way it is and why it’s unfair not to abide by it.

            And for your information, I have great customer service. I’m one of the best cashiers in my store and don’t twist that cause we have a great store. My customers love me, all of them. And if someone comes in with more then one card, I know that the other customers are going to be shorted because it’s unfair……imagine that, looking out for all customers!

            You can’t even try and tell me that in your store, your customers, regular or not, don’t get frustrated when they come in on a sunday or monday and find out they can get a free item but to no avail because the product is already gone. It happens every week. EVERY WEEK! Just read this site every week and you’ll see proof of it, not that you should need it if you are store manager.

            So don’t preach at me like I said anything out of line because I didn’t. And I highly doubt one comment (two including this one to defend myself) constitutes “getting on the blogs and showing my behind”!

        • janell

          At no time did I read your comments as rude, or unkind.  I think some of the people who reacted strongly don’t like to face the fact that they’re not following the rules and that their choices affect other customers.  They seem to try to rationalize and excuse their behavior.  They know you’re right.  They just don’t like it.

    • Binkle

      I got mine today. I was a little hesitant but popped it open when I got in the car and Oh my gosh was it good. Drank the whole thing and wished I had another one. LOL.

    • Heaps Amy

      I did get this coupon, but mine tasted horrible!  My kids were begging me for a drink, and I couldn’t resist.  The look on their faces was worth it.  I should feel bad, but it was so darn funny.

      • Czalinsky

        haha, My daughter said the same thing, She hated it!!! Oh well it was free so no hard feelings…

    • Anonymous

      I didn’t get the coupon.  My mom didn’t either.

      • Spoony4u09

        did you make sure you scanned your card twice?

    • Carol

      i have a card and my daughter has one. she is in college but comes home a lot on the weekends. not sure if my husband has one! lol i don’t think he does. i got mad when i saw a receipt that didn’t show he was a member but he goes there very rarely. 

    • V_wainright

      I got  an extra 5 off face cream and another 5 off Lumene products, coupled with the coupons I had and BI get I for 75% off, it was a great deal at CVS.

      • Heather

        I did the same thing!

    • V_wainright

      I went for it all this morning. I used those great proctor and gambles and hit walgreens and cvs (with ONE card ladies). I did not clear shelves, went to my valued cashiers whom I have even brought breakfast to on occasion, and I had fun saving with my daughter who is 8 and is learning. I ended up with a 70% savings on over $800 of product.  My family is getting gift boxes of things we need and use for Christmas and I am donatng many things to the women’s shelter in my city. That made me feel great!!! That is what, in my opinion, this is all about. Not postng angry things at others. We are all in this bad economy together.

      • Ihendrix

        If you got 800.00 worth of stuff at cvs & walgreens…You had to clear some shelves…JUST SAYING!

        • shelly

          Wow!  Did you not read the part about posting mean things??  And, it is NOT hard to rack up $800 in retail at CVS and Wags.  She never said it was all on one thing.  None of us pay retail here…I regularly have around $300-$400 in retail value from both store in any given week…doesn’t mean I spend that much in OOP.  Let’s all give each other the benefit of the doubt and stop judging…

        • KTA

          not when the actual retail price is 10-15-20 dollars per item! and cvs has limits on sale items, so just because some people clear shelves doesnt mean everyone does!

    • DL

      Our CVS doesn’t carry the illy drinks but they substituted any coffee drink of our choice up to 2.49 off!!

    • Spoony4u09

      YUCK!!! That was horrible!

    • I got it!

    • Anonymous

      I got it but I didn’t see any in my store (not even a tag where it would be). I’m not a coffee drinker so I wasn’t too disappointed.

    • Swetiehan

      I got that coupon. I bought one of those things before and it tasted horrible. I even got coupons for $2 off because a 4 pack is like 8 bucks in Kroger. This is a different kind so I shall see how this one tastes. I do not have high hopes, lol.

    • I didn’t get this coupon. I also was not allowed to razors as part of the $20 for facial products coupon.

      • Katie

        I would not consider razors a face care product… yes men may shave their faces but still.

    • CatBlue

      I gave my free illy coffee drink to the wonderful CVS cashier who so patiently checks me out and answers my many questions about coupons, specials, etc.  Peace.  =^..^=

    • Liz

      I got a $5 off facial skincare CVS coupon, and I did the cover girl blush/gain detergent scenario that jenny posted in this week’s ad to get the $10 gift card.  I asked my cashier if makeup counted toward the facial skincare, and she said yes and the register took my coupon no problem!  It brought my subtotal to $1.28 and $3.52 after tax!  Then, I got a $10 gift card in return :)  blush will make a nice stocking stuffer!

      • Mcleodsc

        I did the same thing yesterday!  I have lots and lots of make-up for making gift bags for Christmas!!! Plus GAS gift cards!!

      • Ylevans1982

        I got this coupon too! I’m glad to know I can use it on makeup!

    • Mcleodsc

      This is for those that did not like the taste. I turned mine into an iced  Latte by adding liquid flavored creamer and sweetener (sweet & low in my case) to it.  yummy!!

    • Mcleodsc

      WOW!  I just read ALL THE WAY THRU all the comments. Jenny can you clarify how many cards each household can/should have?  I read one comment that stated that each household member 13 years old and older can have a CVS card. I was told by CVS when I asked several years ago that it was a limit of ONE per household. I have always followed that rule. Has this changed? I would love to get my grandson (who lives with us) signed up if kids can have one-he goes couponing with me all the time and loves to get free stuff and he UNDERSTANDS HOW COUPONING WORKS!!  JENNY COULD YOU CHECK ON THIS? THANKS!!

      • Katie

        You are supposed to have one card per household but too many people are breaking this rule.

      • coupons4kids

        It is ONE per household.  Those individuals are doing nothing but making “couponers” look bad.

    • Themartins55

      Yum !! Loved it !!!

    • Alegna Sreggird

      I added mine to ice cold Hershey’s home made chocolate milk this morning since the taste was quite bitter to me….it was great!

    • Alegna Sreggird

      FYI..I used my last 4 $8 off 2 Cover face products coupons last night @ CVS…all Cover Girl makeup was BOGO 1/2 off so this made for 8 FREE products (2-eye shadow/2-eye liner/2-blush) plus an overage which paid for 2 bags of Halloween candy I bought for tonight wich I used a coupong for as well! What an awesome deal!

      • Wendiandjohnaz

        Where did you get the coupon?

        • Alegna Sreggird

          the cover girl coupon was from P & G back at the first of the monty…it expired today so i went in to see if i could find a good deal.

      • Fromkhadija

        They wouldn’t let me use those coupons for eyeshadow, blush, or liner. The cashier told me only powder, concealer and foundation…

        • coupons4kids

          That is because it was only suppose to be for the powder, concealer and foundation.  CVS will not get reimbursed for the eye shadows and eye liners. It was a mistake on a cashier to take it.  I’m afraid that happened alot with those Covergirl coupons.  Will hurt couponers in the future because they won’t send out high dollar coupons if people don’t use them correctly.

    • Brandi

      The machine gave me $2 off orbit 42ct. pack and these are on sale for 2/$4 so it makes them free plus overage if you use the manufacturer’s coupon for $1 off 2. 

    • Mcleodsc

      scanned card today and got another coffee coupon -too bad the store is out!

      • Katie

        Mine said to keep it and they will honor it even after it expires (as long as it’s before the 6 month mark) :)

      • Heather

        My CVS let me swap it for a Seattle’s Best. which also gave me a $1 overage!

    • Mcleodsc

      anyone come up with a scenario using the $4/20 cvs lumene coupon with manu lumene cpns?

      • Tiya

        I did the Peat mask at 9.79, the toner at 10.79, and 2 creams at $3.89. I expected the creams to be $.97 with the 75% off making the total $22.52 minus $5/20 (this is what mine were) and $16 mq making the total $1.52 plus tax. Fortunately I had to add gum and candy because it was negative because the 75% off was taking off the 9.79 mask and one of the creams making the total  $18.10 minus coupons for a zero balance after adding gum. I hope this helps.

    • Jessica Dunn

      I have a question for those who got the free drink and didn’t like it. Did you get the espresso flavor or the cappuccino flavor? Cause I got the cappuccino flavor cause it has chocolate in it and it was YUMMY! (I don’t like the taste of plain coffee) I stayed away from the espreso one cause I know espresso to have a very strong bitter taste (even the chocolate covered espresso beans lol). Just wondering if the people who didn’t like it got the espresso one.

      • Fromkhadija

        I think the espresso would have been good if it were hot.  It was not good cold without cream.

        • Jessica Dunn

          Stopped by a cvs yesterday got the coffee coupon again and tried the espresso as they were out of the other. WARNING: The espresso is true espresso: black, bitter, strong, etc with no sweetner or cream mixed in. The cappuccino is better cause it has choc in it. HTH

      • I got the cappuccino.  i liked the way it tasted.  Glad it was free because I would never spend $2+ for it.

    • Anonymous

      went in today and it gave me another free coffee . they are out but coupon says good till nov 7 . they are reg price 2.49 each here in v a

      I went to CVS this morning and received the Illy coupon and got the Cappuccino and it was great!! with the Proctor and Gamble coupons got the men in the family some early stocking stuffers. also got the Mr Clean and had a get one free for buying the two. Now that I understand ECB’s loving some CVS. Thanks Jenny. I may not be major saving but I am happy with my purchases and getting what I want and able to try new products because of it!!!!!

        If you sent in, or are planning to send in, the $10 P&G rebate on Venus, Olay, etc BEWARE! Walgreens, CVS, Kroger, Walmart and many others were not included in that I guess. Funny cause they never said a word in the offer about that! Seems like it was a scam to get people to buy their products. I was very disappointed!

          Not a scam.  You may have picked up a form from a specific store that required you to purchase the products from that store.  The forms that were available online do not have any restrictions on where you have to purchase the items.  In my experience, P&G rebates are the best – they process quickly and have few restrictions and take the value before coupons without question.

            I have had pretty good experiences with rebates. I got the rebate forms online and sent them in. Is there any way I can get in contact with them to find out about my rebates?

      Scanned my CVS card and received my illy coupon and, much to my surprise, a coupon to get a $5 CVS gift card.  All I had to do was ask for a Medicare part D brochure from the pharmacy.  My age didn’t matter.  The employee said the coupon was being dispensed few and far being; I guess it was my lucky day!

      I’m having a great time with the Illy coupons. I printed them every day and then went in and got diapers along with 4 Illy coffees. The coffe rings up as 2.49, the coupon scans for 2.49 and in the end it takes off 4x .49cents because the coffee is on sale therefore giving me $2 extra towards my diapers. The pull ups are part of the gift card sale and I got the $10 gift card today as well.

      My Card is not printing any coupons. It is saying no coupons at this time.

        sometimes there just aren’t any coupons to be printed. rarely, but happened to me a few times a week or two ago (i try to go daily since its on my way). Also, have them check the machine to make sure there is paper still in it:)

    • I made my first attempt at combining coupons with store discounts at CVS.  It was very difficult to keep things straight.  First off, I want to mention that the store did not have the tag showing the price from the sale ad so it had me wondering if it was going to ring up right.  Besides prices not being marked I was thrown off when the items I had on my list weren’t there anymore.  :(  Here’s what I got but it looks like I only saved 51%.  Is that a bad thing?  I bought things I can use.  I also split my order into two separate transactions so I could roll my extra reward bucks to the second transaction and like a dummy (frustrated) I forgot to apply so I have rewards for next time. Here’s what I got:
      2 Lady Speedsticks 2/$6 EBR $4 = $2 ($1 ea.)
      1 Illy Coffee Free on sale for $2, In store coupon $2.49 = $.49 credit back
      3 American Hallmark Greeting cards (the ones for $.99 ea.), EBR $3 = $.03 credit back
      1 Crest Pro Health toothpaste $2.99, used $1 coupon, EBR $1 = $.99
      1 Shick Quattro Razor or 4 pack refill. They were out of the razor so I got the refills $8.99, $2 coupon, EBR $4 = $2.99
      2 Pantenes 2/$6.97, $3 coupon = $3.97 ($1.99 ea.)
      2 Dawns $.99 ea., 2 $.50 coupons = $.98 ($.49 ea.)
      1Olive Oil $3.99, $1 coupon = $3.32
      3 Trident gums 3/$3, $1/3 coupon = $2 ($.67 ea.)
      1 Bag Iams dog food $6.99, $1 coupon = $5.99
      ““““““““““““““““““““““““““““““““““““
      Total without coupons or tax $45.88
      Coupon Total Discount -$12.49
      Total after coupons and tax = $35.18
      EBC for next purchase -$12
      Net expense $23.18

        good job! and you will get better at it! Especially if you needed what you bought and it was cheaper than you could have bought it anywhere else without a coupon….you are winning!

        if you are not sure about the price, go to the coupon center and scan it. you will then know the regular price and the cvs card price. unfortunately it does not tell you about ECB or the gift card promo. I also noticed that many cvs stores don’t put up all sales tags so i started scanning and checking the paper adds. works great

      I thought of this idea I have a coupon for buy 1 get 1 free for oil of olay and there is 5.00 extra care bucks and this also goes towards the 30 dollar purchase for the free gift card and oil of olay has a rebate and then today I went in and receive a 5.00 off for skin care products

      Went in 3xs so far this week and coupon has printed for me every time. Store is all out of illy but aloud me to substitute so i got the large Starbucks $2.69-$2.49 paid $0.20 is rather pay a little for the bigger bottle. Seems like a better deal to me as my cashier will not give you the average.
