If you’re not including a drugstore in your weekly shopping plan, you’re missing out on so many great deals! Here’s an easy way to get started.

See all the sales, coupons and rewards that made up this week’s CVS shopping trip. I ended up paying around $6 for 4 razors, 3 packs of Pampers, 2 packs of baby wipes, and a 4 pack of travel size toothpaste.

Watch the video above to see how!

      I really don’t get the math here. I come up with $29 spent and ending up with $10 gift card and $3 ECB. This would mean a final cost of around $16. Am I missing something?

      • William

        After watching the video, I see that she started with a $10 ECB, which means $19 total out of pocket. That would explain the $6 end cost. However, I would have to include the original $10 ECB as money paid.

          I always try focus on total out of our pocket in real money that’s the part that matters the most to our budget :)

          not if u roll that 10.00 over and over

    • wd brge

      U say u can get the next weeks sale prices starting at 6pm on saturday. Will that work on the wednesday before Thanksgivibg day at 6pm ?

      • NonnieMouse

        You can get the prices early (on Saturdays), but I’m not sure the ECB will print automatically in that case. You might have to get the cashier to provide that back to you manually.
        Anyone know the answer to this as well as WD’s question?

        • ouraislinn

          My store, JC in TN, does the price changeovers on Sat, but it does not print ECB for sun (price but no ECB), it uses Sat ECB only. So it is an advantage if better price the next week but no ECB or no change in ECB on that item. Hope that helps.

      • http://www.southernsavers.com/ Jenny

        The wednesday before has not ever worked for me on the Thanksgiving day deals, but the Saturday does (as long as your store is NOT a 24 hr store). The ECB rewards will auto print as well.

    • NonnieMouse

      It’s been a while since I’ve hit the drug stores; I quit when they started messing with their rewards policies making it harder to use them, specifically by creating waiting periods between issue and redemption (besides being regularly wiped out on deal items in my old area).
      I checked the coupon policy posted for CVS but don’t see a mention about rolling rewards. Is there a waiting period or can you use it same day? What about Rite Aid?
      Thanks!

      • http://www.southernsavers.com/ Jenny

        You can use rewards at CVS the same day, just second behind the first transaction. You can also do that at Walgreens. Rite-Aid is the only store that requires you wait until the next day to use the rewards :(

      I am not finding the CVS ad and coupun match-up for 11/23-11/29.
      Is anyone else having this problem?
