There is an unadvertised deal this week on EOS Lip Balm.

$2.99 ECB wyb EOS Lip Balm at $2.99

That means you pay $2.99 for it and then get it all back again in CVS bucks!  I found these at the end of an aisle near pain meds, so you may have to hunt a little bit.

See all the deals at CVS this week.

      Thank you!! I was planning on going there tomorrow, and I have been wanting to try these so bad!

    • T3

      Heads up to all Publix Shoppers…at my Publix in Gainesville they changed their coupon policy, and now it is only 2 like coupons per transaction. I haven't checked the other stores (we have quite few) but it was good while it lasted:(

      • T3

        Gainesville,FL

        • AdriannJ

          I'm in Gainesville Fl too! Which Publix? Like coupons? Like manufactured coupons and 1 publix coupon or…..???

          • T3

            The one off of exit 390, i think 39th. It just said limit 2 like coupons on transactions. I think they are talking about manis because they already limit how many publix qs you can use per purchase. It was a home made sign (no corp logo, just black typing on white paper), it was located where you pick up their weekly ads. I am hoping that it is only for this publix cause that would thoroughly suck as we don't have Kroger or Rite-aid.

            • AdriannJ

              Well I shop at the Publix next to Target and they are very friendly! Night time especially (6-11)

            • Kzsutton

              I agree-that's where I shop and I NEVER have trouble with ANY coupons-GREAT STAFF there by Target!!!

      • Eae1959

        Kissimmee area is doing the same thing, Store on Columbia started a few weeks ago.

    • Kristy

      Thank you for posting this. Love these. Tried them awhile back when Walgreens had then on sale.

    • Flicker

      OOooo thanks!! I LOVE these and FREE is awesome!!

    • AdriannJ

      I bought mine tonight! Also …… Oh yeaaaa! Bought my Gain dryer sheets w/ my $3.00 off coupons from last Sundays paper. And W/ my coupons from todays RP insert I managed to get enough laundry detergent to last us a while seeing we do laundry everyday! 18 boxes of Gain, Would have cost me $56.16, Total cost w/ coupons $2.16! 13 bottles of Purex detergent would have cost me $25.87 since they're On sale @ CVS for $1.99 ( normally they're $6.38! So @ that price they would have been $82.94!!!!!) W/ my $1.00 off coupons from todays paper they cost me $12.87 minus my $7.58 ECB from the Colgate sensitive toothpaste ECB deal last week! So total on those were $5.29! Last but certainly not least I bought 12 purex 3-N-1 Laundry sheets w/ my $3.00 off coupons from todays RP insert. At $3.99 per box it would have cost me $47.88! It only cost me $11.88! Sooooooo total today I spent $26.91 for 1,440 dryer sheets and 708 loads of laundry detergent! YAY! A total savings of $103.00

      • Savinlotsamoney

        I'm in Savannah, GA. I don't see the Gain dryer sheets on sale in our local flyer. Are they regularly priced $3 per box? My mom is about to have a fit to get dryer sheets since we ran out two weeks ago! I would like to suprise her with lots of them!

        • Sean

          The Gain dryer sheets should be free or near free at most stores with the -$3 coupon from the 2/13 RP. Your best bets are the dollar stores (Family Dollar, Dollar General) or Wal-Mart.

          • Gillyp3864

            I've been making $1.13 overage on my Gain-at WM!

      • curious

        I'm a little confused, are you really saving that much money if you have to buy 10+ newspapers at $2 a pop? Seems like you aren't saving as much if you look at it that way. I'm not trying to be negative just wondering if there is a way around off setting the cost of papers – thanks for any help

        • Elainehn2002

          Not the OP but thought I'd chime in ….
          a lot of people get extra inserts from various sources … some have family friends, neighbors, coworkers, etc. save them for them … some get them from recycling bins. Some people trade coupons with on-line of 'real life' coupon buddies … some 'buy' coupons from eBay, or on-line coupon sites, etc. (technically you say you're paying a handling fee since you aren't supposed to buy/sell coupons). But even with all that said … as long as you use more than $2 worth of coupons you've recouped your cost for a newspaper. If i use three good coupons I've made a profit … and generally even if you don't use the coupons the week the paper comes out, over the 'life' of the insert you'll use wayyyy more than that if you're an avid couponer.

        • Tiff715

          My paper cost $1.50 to $2.00, but some people on here get their paper for like .89

        • Aliciasavings

          Our Krogers out here sell the papers for $0.99. So you aren't spending too much on them. When you consider the savings, it is worth it.

          • Vicki

            Let your neighbors and friends know of your saving savvy, and they will probably start saving coupons for you, considering you don,t have to have the coupons immediately, since they don,t expire quickly.

        • foximoxie

          I purchased 20 of the Gain $3.00 off coupons from Ebay and only paid a little over $3.00 for all 20 of them so it was definitely worth it for me.

      • Barb

        Sounds like a great haul, even if you did pay for some of the coupons!

        I'm a little unorthodox as a couponer because I have a difficult time determining how long “a while” will be-so I don't do the big stock-ups, generally getting a maximum of three of something that isn't food since the cleaning/HBA product deals are quite frequent. But I do know even though we do laundry every day (with a family of five) it would take me about 7 years to use 1,440 dryer sheets. When I used to buy the Bounce 200 ct it would last a year since the sheets would freshen and soften anywhere from 3-5 loads each. At times I would have several “used” sheets recirculating. My mom taught me to do this and actually I would never throw out a dryer sheet until it was wispy and had no scent.

    • Casey B

      YAY!! LOVE THIS LIP BALM AND IT'S FREE!!!!! = ) Can't get much better than FREE!!

      • Mamaberry

        Me too! This stuff is great! Just told my husband yesterday I wish I had more :) Yeah!

        • JustUnicycle

          My DW is using mine XD… Now I can get one for her… She can't have the yummy fruit punch though. Lemon for her. (Can't have identical balms.)

    • Love that it's free, but the one I got last time, my husband hates the flavor. I always have to put it on AFTER giving him a goodnight kiss. LOL! Maybe he'll like the other flavor better.

    • Mommyof2sweetgirls

      Awesome. Trying to go today. A few really great freebies this week.

      • Mommyof2sweetgirls

        the EOS balms were not posted as sale in my store, but they were and gave me the ECBs correctly. Also, the cadbury eggs and jelly beans did not print out the ECBs as per stated in the ad, BUT when I politely asked why the very friendly clerk looked at the ad and printed me 2- $1 ECB instead. I love my CVS…

    • Miatd

      gonna get this today…thanks jenny

    • Susanne

      Could not find in my CVS!! They did not have this product! so sad…..

    • GAGirl

      Thanks Jenny. Fantastic Easter basket fillers for tweens or teens! Also got a couple bdays coming up and I can use as a present filler!

    • Jamie

      Yay!! My CVS didn't even have the sign up that they were on sale for $2.99, but sure enough when I checked out it rang up for the sale price and gave me the total back in ECB. :) :)

    • Hailey

      Sweet… I can use my 3.79 buck from last week and get one of those cadbury eggs! Cant wait lol. i'm going to go today!

    • Dtcox

    • Jess

      Thank you! I got mine today- and you're right, I had to hunt a little, but I found it! :)

    • ireneY

      They are hanging on an end-cap near the pain relievers at my store, not with the other chapsticks. Tried the lemon drop today — it's cute, fun to use and SPF 15, too!

    • Hailey

      Got mine but my cvs had the cadbury egg in their computer wrong so I didt get my bucks… I complained andthey gave me two more eggs free.

    • Hey Guys, just thought I'd let you know that the EOS lip balm sale and ecb has a limit of one per cvs card. Learned that today when I saw a lady buy about 7 and then only get one ecb coupon back.

    • Koupon Kid

      I think that I made a mistake, ya'll. I'm so upset. So, I bought my EOS and then got the ECB right then, so I used them to buy three leaf bag tags, but shouldn't I have gotten three more ecb back for that purchase as well? I'm brand new to this. I think if I had a 5 cents added, then I would have gotten the ECB from the leaf tags. Does any one know? I'm beating myself up over this.

      • Shannon

        You only get the ECB for the leaf tags after you've used on 4 times. You don't get anything the first time. Only after the 4th, then each 4th after that.

      • TwoTypers

        you shouldn't need to buy 3 bag tags. You only needed the one. They work with your card. 3 would do you no good. I think that is where you got confused. Also, you only get ECBs from the bag tags every 4th time it is scanned. Which is why 3 of those would do you no good. They only scan once for every purchase. And really only suppose to do so once a day.

    • Catiei

      Got mine in Winter Haven, FL. They were not marked on sale or for ECB. Without u guys I never would have known! Thanks so much for all the tips! Luv u guys!!

    • Dtcox

      our cvs in v a here is wonderful /////// always no problem ///// and have alot and more found out yesterday they dont carry gain sheets and also kroger dont , so ill try wm this morning just to see how mad they can make me ,,,,,,, ha ha

    • Missyba

      Got me one yesterday!! Also I have a question if anyone knows the answer…I received a CVS coupon in my email for $3 off a $15 purchase or more…it expired Sunday…can I still use this coupon???

      • Rhonda

        Ask your nicest cashier. My CVS is great about letting me use these a few days after expiration. Good Luck.

    • CVS Lady

      I had to look for a long time at my store. Not with the other lip balm, not near the pain meds. FINALLY found it on an endcap in the makeup section. Woohoo!

    • Charlotte

      Got mine! It was exactly where you said at the end of the aisle near the pain meds – easy to find!

    • Mycobabe

      Got mine! It was at the end of the aisle near the pain meds with other lip balms. It was not listed on sale, but the cashier said it was and that I would get the ECB. Thanks!

    • Mom4

      Wasn't sure if anyone else saw this or not, but they advertised Lifewater, Powerade, andFuze for 88 each. When I went ot ring it up, they were actually 4 for $1.25!!! NO LIMIT!!! Great deal!!! Not sure when it's gonna end, but it was a great deal!

    • Jen

      I bought two and only one $2.99 ECB printed. I'm new to this. Should I have asked to ring them up separately? Or do you only get the deal for one?

      • Kristy

        There is a limit 1 per card.

      • Stamping_girl

        it was 1 deal per cvs card. look in the fine print in the adds or there on the tag and it will tell you how many deals you can do.

    • Laruth1

      Thanks for the freebie. I love the lipgloss.

    • Gail

      My store was completely out and won't be getting in any more.

    • The5heads

      Lovin my free lip gloss……Thank you thank you….

    • Barbie

      Wow! I found it! Thanks for the tip :-)

    • thebanksfamily

      Is this over – sometimes it lasts more than a week? I forget about it! :(

      • Tishness

        yes by the pic i can tell you that is last weeks sale sign cause it is light yellow and this weeks signs are dark yellow plus all the other comments on this is from 3 days ago remember if you want to get the good stuff before it is all gone go to cvs on Saturday after 6pm when the next weeks ad has already been activated if you already have the coupons for the products or go bright and early at 8am when the store opens but the only prob is if u are looking for the ad signs you might not find them all up till later Sunday afternoon so go in knowing what u are looking for and u will be good to go!!! or get in good with the cvs ppl and you can snag a next weeks ad early like a few of our regular couponers do!!
