    • Jennifer

      Here’s a $5 coupon off the Tangled DVD. Not sure if the one one sale for $19.99 at CVS is the 4 disc one in this coupon, but figured I’d share anyways! http://www.disneymovierewards.go.com/promotions/special-offers/tangled-coupon?cmp=dmov_dmr_tv_tangledlptw_print

    • Madhatter31

      I can not find the Rimmel Printable Ad for 30003. Any other zip codes to try?

    • Megak

      Anyone know what time in the evening the CVS sale for Sunday start since I haven't done it before?

      • anna

        6:00pm

        • Megak

          Thanks!

          • zackattack1192

            for everyone talking about what TIME the sales start on Saturday, u better make sure u are going to get the ECB’s back as well. At my store, for instance, it is a 24 hour store, and the sales start around 8:00, but the ECB’s DO NOT PRINT until after midnight, when it is technically Sunday. Just letting everyone know.

      • Bamabobbie

        I think all stores have different times. Not sure.

      • Sandra

        Ask your store, mine starts at NOON

      • Brandyandtravis

        In Dothan AL, they start the Sunday Ad at 2:00 on Saturday. Just ask your store!

      • kelli

        one store in my area (of course it’s the farthest away) starts it’s new sales early in the day on saturday, the one closest to my house starts is new sales around 7-8 pm. it’s not a 24 hour store but it does stay open until midnight while the college kids are in school. I think that the manager has to activate the sales in the computer system whenever they want them to be active.

    • Jenn Marie Earle

      Ok I am new to the drug store couponing, and new to couponing in general I guess. This is actually gettting pretty discouraging because everytime I spend time making a list and clipping coupons and then get to the store and everything is sold out!!! When am I suppose to go shopping for these deals, am I suppose to camp outside every week to get a steal on some toothpaste?

      • Hey Jenn – getting there early to get a jump on the deals is one option, the other is to request rainchecks for anything they are out of and just get the deal next week instead!

        • Jenn Marie Earle

          Thanks everyone! It really does start to upset you when you think your going to get in there and do well and then everything you want is gone. It is so disheartening. I will have to try out the rainchecks. If I get a raincheck does the same deal from that week apply to it when I go and get it the next week? Basically, will i still get it for the same price I would have gotten it for if I had bought it that day?

          • Bee

            Yes.

          • couponmama

            Yes, also each ECB deal has a specific number that they'll put on the raincheck, so you'll also get your ECBs when you buy your items later. Plus they track your purchases with your extra care card, so if they were out of some items for a ECB deal, you could buy what they had, then come back later in the week & get the rest (or get them at another store) & it will print out your ECB then! Sometimes I'm glad when a store is out of something that's on sale but I don't need it right then. I can wait til a good coupon comes out, then go back with the raincheck & match it for extra savings!

          • Softersoftest22

            a couple of the CVS stores here will substitute items if they are out of stock (especially if it is something that they don't normally stock like 24 pack of toilet paper). I have have them substitute water, tissues, toilet paper, and dish liquid. Some stores are better than others about it (it also helps to ask the manager). It never hurts to ask and it saves making another trip back to the store

          • Jen

            I alway try to go on Thursday. Thursday is the day my local CVS store restocks AND it’s the first day they start giving rainchecks. I hate to go to a store thats out of stock and not be able to get a raincheck. But I know it’s frustrating when you are trying to roll your ECB’s into your transactions.I would recommend to start shopping toward the end of the sale and ask your store when the restock and when they give rainchecks. Try a different store if you can. You’ll figure it out! The only thing to remember about rainchecks is that if its get $3 when you spend $10, if you’ve bought items DURING the sale, the balance doesn’t carry over into the raincheck.

      • I either go in the first 2 dys OR get rainchecks. Their rainchecks NEVER expire.

        • The5heads

          Just be careful that your manuf. coupons don't expire before they get the items re-stocked…

      • Theresa

        I got very upset myself when I started couponing. Now, I go and get rainchecks for all of the items that I want and even the ones that I think I may need in the future. Many times, have I actually been able to get the same deal or even better b/c I kept my rainchecks and then I had more coupons to use or higher value coupons.

      • I have a CVS near me that isn't by any big neighborhoods – it's always stocked. If there are multiple stores in your area, rotate them for a few weeks, and you may find one is better than another. I drive a few miles out of my way to visit a Rite Aid that doesn't make my blood pressure increase. It's not worth driving to another city, but I spend a lot of time at drugstores, so I pick the one that has the best employees and stays well-stocked to save my sanity!

      • Bee

        Yes, rain checks for CVS are great–they include ECB's. So, you can “reserve” the price for another day!

    • anna

      Cannot find the rimmel $2.00 off coupon on the zip code 30003

      • Dianne L

        me either!

        • Galveston 2000

          ditto

          • Jen

            Ditto. Anyone having luck with this one?

    • I kept my CVS $1 Kellogg's Q's instead of getting a singe serve cup free. NOW those combined W/ MQ's make me some almost free BOXES of cereal!

      • ireneY

        Are the $1 CVS Qs still spitting out this week? I used mine when they were $2.50 last week. :(

        • No, they were just that one week.

    • tk

      I can't find the Rimmell coupon either???

    • Erkelly

      My local CVS is not a 24 hour one, and I just asked the store and they said they start their Sunday sales on Friday! Looks like I'll start going Friday's so they won't be sold out of sale items by the time I get there!

      • Amy L

        Where is this store?

    • Bee

      No Lindsay Olives coupon in my Feb 2011 Family Circle…been through page-by-page twice and only a V-8 soup coupon.

    • happyinnc

      I really appreciate the lists and the coupon matchups. I do have to say that it's getting very frustrating seeing these great CVS coupon center printouts listed in the deal scenarios when I have never seen anything even close to the coupons you list. And I live in a suburb where there is a CVS on every other corner. ( I just get a constant stream of .50 off dove choc) If you could list even the state these coupons are offered, the rest of us might not feel so frustrated at not having access to these deals.

      • Amy B.

        There is no rhyme or reason to who gets what coupons. Actually, it doesn't even depend on the state you live in. It depends on whether CVS's system has decided to give your card good coupons. The best advice I can give is to actually sign up for a new card if the one you have doesn't give you good coupons and hope that the next one gets them.

        • happyinnc

          Thanks so much for the advice. I'm going to try that. I have had my CVS card forever. I did not realize that my husband could have a CVS card too. Don't they have a limit per household? Thanks again!

          • I got the Physicains formula but I too am just getting the Dove coupons as well. Wish I had thought to get two of those coupons for this week's sale too. It is just totally random what coupons you will get.

          • They do have a limit of one per household, so just stop using yours (or lose it completely). Switching cards and account holders makes you a new shopper in their system and will start to generate more of the fun coupons again.

        • WynetteC

          I thought about this option over a year ago when I wanted the $ off store coupons. But after realizing their system remembered my email address, and I was told it by the help line that an email address never goes away once it's entered in the system, I just gave up. It was not helpful in my case and did not generate new coupons for me. I don't have the patience to keep up with multiple email addresses (and apparently this is where gmail can benefit those who have multiple emails).

          • Jen

            I have 2 email addresses. I have my regular email address that all my friends and family have and then I have a couponing email address. This is the email address I use when I have to sign up for a coupong or when I know I’ll be getting tons of emails I don’t care about. I check my coupon email once a week or so just to be sure I don’t miss out on a Q and my regular email is kept clear of the “junk”. Two emails come in handy sometimes when the only requirement to get a Q is an email address of sorts.

    • Jen

      My CVS Coupon Center never prints out what is listed and my husband's card gets different coupons than my card does. Am I missing something?

      • sarahcas

        The coupons she lists are just ones people have reported getting. There is no guarantee of getting any of the coupons from the coupon center, unfortunately.

      • I have found that 75% of the Q's they give are based on what you purchase from them. I NEVER buy baby products there and they never give baby Q's. My hubby has never bought make up on his card and they never give him make up Q's.

        • Jo R

          I rarely shop at CVS and keep getting candy or coffee coupons printing. Have never bought either- not sure how they do it.

      • WynetteC

        I personally think they have certain “days” that they or vendors run promotions through the red machine in CVS and if you just happen to be there at the right time, before that promotion runs out (similar to coupons on the web), then you have it.

        One Sunday night many months ago I remember being in the CVS and getting a high value CVS store coupon for the Renu Bio-True solution from the red machine. It combined with my manufacturer to make it FREE plus overage. And I tested my theory and asked others unafilliated with me to scan their card that night wondering if they would also get the BioTrue coupon, and lo and behold, they all did. When I had posted my findings about it the next day, the BioTrue coupons were no longer printing from the red machine. Some deals last longer than others, and then some deals are card specific targeting what you buy. Same is true for the $ off total purchase coupons. Hope this helps. :)

    • Misty

      The last time CVS had the buy 10 get 5 ECB on the bandaids, neosporin I didn't see the travel size bandaids, anyone get those the last time and where are they located?

      • jrun

        i just saw them today in the diaper/baby aisle hanging up by themselves (by themselves right by the pampers diapers)

    • Sandra

      Any one know where to find the 2$ off dove 60016 zip doesnt have it.

      Thanks

    • Mrs. Ellis

      I am very sad right now that my 3/20 SS did not have the Physicians Formula coupon…

      • Missycatchall

        order it quick from one of the coupon clipping sites

      • lauren

        neither did mine! anyone know of anywhere else we can find this??

        • Bee

          There was one for $5 off any product on a recent internet promotion. It was PDF, too but I didn't save it.

          • Bee

            For heaven's sake, somebody not only made many copies of it, they are selling the PDF copies on eBay. Now, that is somebody I would not want to do business with.

            • Madbeachin1

              I purchased 5 off Ebay….I certainly hope this is not the case for my coupons!
              I paid $2.50 for all five.

      • gardengirl

        I don't have it either nor do I have the CVS coupon.

      • WynetteC

        Make-up always goes on sale and should always be very inexpensive or free. Plus CVS (or other pharmacy store) put make-up on clearance throughout the year and that's how you can find great deals for a fraction of the price. I get all my foundations or powders from these type sales as well! :)

        • Bee

          True. Although I used to see 50 percent off sales at Wag’s quite often and they just don’t do that anymore. It’s Buy one, get one 50 percent off now.

      • Dvherrera25

        Me too!!!!

    • If you're on the Folger's email list, there is a $2 coupon.

    • 3lilhares

      Did anybody find the pledge coupon in their AJC SS 3/6?? It's not listed as missing but it's not listed at all in the coupon variations??

      Thank you Thank you Jenny for all you do!!!!

      • gardengirl

        It wasn't in my 3/6 AJC.

        • Guest

          Didn't have it in SS from AJC but found it in the one from junk mail from that week

    • Dawnbrad

      Has CVS changed their coupon policy? My CVS has stopped giving overage on coupons.

      • Sarah

        It has always been YMMV at my store.

    • Heather

      I just called my non-24 hour store and they said they do not start their Sunday sale on Saturday. =(

      • Amy L

        I went last Saturday evening to the Ballentine store and was told that Corporate Wide they will not adjust sale prices until Sunday BECAUSE couponers are depleting sale item stock prior to Sunday's sales! HTH!

        • Madbeachin1

          Same thing here in Seminole, FL.

        • Mom2teenagers

          Hi Amy! This is Stacey. I got the same message from my Lex. and West Columbia CVSs a couple of months ago.

    • Sbigham3

      There was no $5 off coupn for the Physician's Formula makeup in the Raleigh N&O. Did others get that one for sure?

      • Madbeachin1

        Alot of people did not get it, I would hurry up and buy them from Ebay or some where else b/c it will really benefit you in the long run…..especially if you wear Physcians Formula on a regular basis.

        • Sandra

          I have been looking on online for this 5$ q. There is some concern that the q is not valid. The ebay sales are printed in PDF format. This PDF also has a type: the word manufacturer is spelled wrong. Just a thought….it may not be real.
          Other sites also say they are not scanning……

          • 3monkeysmom

            I have one of these PDF q's. They ran a promotion a few weeks ago for a free product (can't remember what it was),and when they ran out of the free product, they gave the coupon instead. But you are right…I just looked at it and the word manufacturer is misspelled in one place (they left out an “r”).
            So long story short: It was valid to begin with but I'm afraid to use it now that people are illegally selling it on ebay :(

            • WynetteC

              After seeing these posts about it, I went to check my coupon, and it is the same mis-spelling that you are talking about. I guess the only thing to do is contact the manufacturer directly and see if this coupon is legit.

              I remember contacting Pringles directly on the phone last year concerning a Pringles Extreme coupon that I received in the mail from “liking” them on facebook. Then there was the hype everyone kept “claiming” that it was an fake obtained through facebook but the company stood behind it and and told me to go and use it, that it was real. Hopefully this will be the case with the Physician's Formula coupon. Only time will tell.

            • Bee

              It is a legit coupon. Mine has the same misspelling but it scanned when used it.

              It's not that these people are circulating a false coupon; it's that they are copying this coupon in mass amounts.

            • Bee

              Which is fraud.

            • jennaj81

              i bought 2 of these q's on ebay a few days ago. haven't received them yet but am concerned. if they are the PDF copies, then it violates ebay policy by selling printed coupons. should I contact ebay?

            • Bee

              Ebay allows them to list two internet printed coupons per auction, but I see these people are advertising the fact they have “as many as you want”.

              Anyone can bring it to eBay's attention, and they may pull the listings and give that person a violation. That would be the best thing because these people are making it hard on people who abide by the rules.

              Then again, Physician's Formula may catch wind of it and have eBay remove those listings.

              It's pretty low to try and make money that way. They are basically making money off their ink and paper-quite a profit. It's one thing to sell insert coupons or coupons that are bricks, but that is just ridiculous.

      • I am in Houston TX and didn't get it. Only got a $1

      • Burroughs85

        I only got $1 off as well in IL. However, I there is a pdf coupon available that I used tonight. I got so MUCH make up for such little prices on the 40% sale.

    • Madbeachin1

      Do you think we will have a hard time using the $2/2 Band Aid coupon since in the little writing it says “not valid on first aid products, or Neosporin trial and travel sizes?”

      • Sara Kathryn

        I am not sure to my understanding of the fine print, it means not valid on travel size neosporin, but that is just my interpretation. HTH!

        • Madbeachin1

          Im totally hoping it works, but it does seem like packs of band aids are first aid products…..I think they messed up when they wrote the small print. Aren't band-aids part of a first aid box?

      • I'm a little baffled by that one, as a mom I would say anything made by Band-Aid is for first aid. My guess though is the Johnson & Johnson first aid tapes and gauzes.

      • Patty

        Are you talking about the coupon that is printed by the link on this sale for the BAND-AID??? I was unable to use my coupon that I printed today for the LISTERINE deal 1.00 for the 8.25 liter size. I was told by CVS MANAGER that I was trying to use a FRAUDULENTcoupon.

        • carrie

          I was able to use that exact Q for the same Listerine deal. Granted, the coupon beeped and the cashier went to someone else for help but they ended up pushing it through.

        • Twila

          I had the same problem last evening. the manager told me it was not a valid coupon.

    • Anon

      Is it normal that my card only lets me get one set of coupons per day? I know that some people can scan twice. Also, I've gotten 3 sets of the same not that great coupons.

      • lynn

        sometimes it will print twice and sometimes only once for me as well, i wish i knew the answer to tell you……..;0)

        • Anon

          Thanks. Hopefully it will start letting me scan twice (it never has so far) and will give me some useful coupons!

      • Christy

        Do you try scanning it again after you have made all of your purchases? That's the only way I can get 2 prints in one visit.

        • Anon

          Thanks for the suggestion. I'll try it next time!

    • Judy

      if your CVS isn't a 24hour one, at what time on Saturday can I begin shopping for the next sale?

      • MY CVS MANAGER JUST ASKED ME YESTERDAY TO GET THE WORD OUT FOR THE SW REGION OF TEXAS. NEW POLICY STATES REGULAR STORES CAN'T START SUNDAY SALES ON SATURDAY UNTIL 4PM AND THE 24 HOUR STORES NOT UNTIL 9PM.

        • Pdc9057

          my manager just told me the exact same thing yesterday. I live in Fl.

          • The Pickens,SC CVS told me last week that their sales start at 2:00pm
            on Saturday.

    • Tasha

      I live in northeast Alabama, and while our stores turn on the sale PRICES on Saturday, the ECB's won't print. Same with our Wags stores; prices will roll, but RR's won't print until Sunday. Just a note for those this might also affect.

      • NorthALCouponer

        Thanks for posting this! I'm in northern AL as well and I was wondering if it would be worth it for me to switch my shopping day to Saturday night instead of Sunday morning but if the ECBs won't print, it's not worth it unless a coupon is expiring or something.

    • Tei

      If the pledge aerosol is limit 1, how can you have more than one in the same scenario?

      • Twinmomaaa

        The DEAL limit is one. You can get all pledge aerosols to get up to the deal amount, it doesn't matter.

      • limit 1 one only means you will get only 1 ecb for it, u can purchase as many as you want though

    • Bh

      got 2.00 manu folgers in my email and Publix dove deodorant reg price now is 3.50 with 1.00 target coupon and 2.oo manu makes it .50

      • karen

        Let me put is simple for you BH :)
        You need to purchase $12 for a $4 ecb. In this case, it takes 4 to make $12. You can only buy 1 deal (in this case) with your card to get your $4ecb.

    • Guest

      Does anyone know about how much Neosporin costs? VERY excited! We've been out forEVER!

      • guest

        6.19

    • Jessica

      Neutrogena has a Q on their website for $2 off any suncare or sunless product.

    • Birgit Gilbert

      question, you can use a mq and ecb one one item? You don't have to have a filler?

      • Christy

        Yes–no filler needed! That's what is so nice about CVS vs. Walgreens!

        • Birgit Gilbert

          thank you

      • millie

        no, there are no fillers at cvs the only thing is that you spend enough for your ecb so if your subtotal is 1.89 and you have a 2.00 ecb you would want to buy something that makes your total before tax 2.00. but yes ecb's are just like cash and that is how you think of them when you use them, except you will not get change back like you do with “real cash”. yes you can buy one item use a coupon and use ecb's to pay for it. good luck!

      ANOTHER coupon I didn't get!! No $5 PF coupon in my SS. There was also no Target Revlon coupon last week either. I got all excited about the PF deal as I am a makeup lover :(

      • I can't find the PF coupon anywhere. None of the papers in SC had it, the
        Memphis paper did not have it, none of my FB friends can find it, and I
        have been on coupon clipping sites with no luck.

      • Angie8220

        they have them on eBay.

      • Bryarsmom

        I may use one of my $5. PF pdf's I saved on my pc. They don't expire until 6/15!

      • Mlaurie406

        They are on ebay, but I'm not paying $6-10 for 5 of them when I only need 2….

        • jennaj81

          i bought 2 for $3 on ebay. i figured it's worth it since I will still make $ on buying 2 products even after purchasing coupons.

          • Mlaurie406

            I couldn't find anyone selling just 2 of them on Ebay, just sets of 5.

      • I've been meaning to get some mascara so I'm with you but all I found was a $1 off instead. We never get the high value ones in Miami.

        • jhoran

          It will only cost 1.99 for the mascara with the 1.00 coupon. If you buy it saturday with the 40% discount still in effect and the 1.00, it will be free with 2.00 profit.

    • Guest

      I had printed out the Rimmel coupon from coupons.com (or smartsource? – don’t remember) two – three weeks ago. Thank goodness I did, because now I can use it. :)

    • lowcountry couponer

      ok- seriously?? How many people are actually going to be able to buy **TEN** travel size packages of bandaids in their CVS?

      • Heartathome4ever

        Why not? It is perfectly doable. If you don't like Jenny's scenario make your own.

      • Dvherrera25

        I think the probklem here is that the store may run out of band aids them there won't be any more for the rest of us to buy. How about we all but 2 or 3 and then we can all benefit from the great deals.

        • Olemissmoss

          What I have done in the past is this…If there is 4 of an item left, and I need 10 to get the ECBs then I tell them to charge me for 10 so that I can go on and get my ECBs and just write a note on my receipt that I will be back later in the week when the truck comes in. Make sure you get cashier or manager to sign your receipt also. Don't want them thinking you wrote it on there :) This is SOOOO much easier than messing up the rest of your transactions that were relying on those ECBs.

          • ShopperSteph

            Great idea! Thanks!

          • Kenzbug

            That is a really great idea!

    • Besavage25

      My store (Gainesville, GA) is not 24 hour, but last Saturday I was told that the regional manager has changed their policy and they cannot start the sale until Sunday. I was so disappointed, I left the store without buying anything.

      • Gamblesonsfarms

        My store had been changing ads Friday night and they also said corporate wouldn't allow them to change early anymore. Not till Saturday at 4pm.

        • DebTN

          My store told me the same thing – no more starting the sale on Friday, now it's Saturday after 4 which was fine by me since I didn't even know they had been starting the sale on Friday!! Now I know why there was never anything left on the shelves when I was getting there 5 minutes after the store opened on Sunday, the day the sale is advertised to start. Live and learn!

    • Cindy

      $7 ECB WYB Physician's Formula make up…how much do you have to spend to get the $7 ECB? Sorry if this has already been covered.

      • kpswagger

        I believe the cheapest PF product out there is around $5.99. For the 7 ECB, there is not a certain amount you need to spend, just keep in mind that clerance PF is excluded.

    • Jenncampbell

      Does anyone know if the Pledge $1 off coupon from 3/6 will work? I know it says it is a manufacturer coupon, but mine says on it that it is redeemable at Dollar General. Just wondering if that will throw the whole thing off. Thanks!

      • Andre

        It should.

      • Zlastra12

        yes, it will. I already used them at wags and they work fine

      • Heartathome4ever

        It is redeemable at Dollar General…and Walmart, and Walgreens,and CVS…and just about anywhere else that accepts coupons!:) Unless it says reedemable ONLY at Dollar General you are able to use it anywhere.

      • Jenncampbell

        Thanks!

    • germangirl

      How come my store coupon center never prints those awesome hight value coupons like the physicians formula one? Any other way to get them?

      • Daisy

        My store didn't print them either….so dissapointed.

    • Etan999

      where can I get physicans formula coupon..did no have one in las sundays ad..and where do u find the store coupon ceners coupons?? im lost sometimes

      • Zinniasgive

        I saw some for sale on ebay, pretty pricey though. And the store coupons come from the red machine (usually close by the registers in most stores). You just scan your card there as many times as it allows you (1-3 times in my short couponing experience). HTH!

      • Dvherrera25

        I didn't get the Physicians Formula coupons either. Not all CVS have a coupon center. I did find one in my area that does but when I scanned the product, no coupon came. :-/

        • Firstbrownie

          You don't get coupons by scanning the product. Just scan your extra care card and you will get random coupons every time (actually, I keep scanning throughout my trip in the store until I get the “No more coupons are available. Please try again tomorrow). It seems to have no rhyme or reason to the coupons it spits out!

          • Santiagosandi

            fyi someone had the 5 off physicians on ebay last week….. don't know if they r still there

          • Dvherrera25

            Ooooooooooh! Ok, thanks!

      • BEENEEGIRL24

        There where no coupons for it in last week's paper anywhere! I called and asked. They said the only 5 off coupons out there, where for a promotion a few weeks ago. If you din't get a free product you were able to print a coupon. HTH

        • Guess

          Where can you print this coupon from?

          • sis

            Guess, it's no longer available to print.

    • kncoupons

      I've been told that you can call corporate and have your expired ExtraCareBucks re-issued. Does anyone know about this? What phone number do I need to call?

      • WubbiesMommy

        Why would you do that? Just use your ECB's before they expire. There's no excuse for letting money expire. Just write down your expiration dates in the future and don't start a trend to make them reissue your ECB or anyone elses. Let it go and move on.

        • ashley

          wow.. harsh!

        • Bee

          Seriously?

        • Adriane

          I think most of us have had ECB's expire at some point, especially if we've been doing this a while. We also sometimes miss out on using a high value coupon every now & then. (Of COURSE our goal is to use our ECB's before they expire…duh.) I'm pretty sure no one is trying to “start a trend. We all have priorities outside of couponing and while I may be hard on myself, it's never my place to snarl at someone asking a legitimate question when they accidentally “messed up” on a potential ECB deal. Please chill out.

          • Kenzbug

            Can I get a high five? LOL

          • DebTN

            Well said, Adriane.

      • Zjqtcj

        I lost my $9.99 ECB last week and called the toll free number on the card, but I was told that they could not reissue the ECB for me even though they did see my lost one was still there unused. They said the only thing they could reissue was the quarterly ECB. I also tried to use an expired ECB but was denied. I don't know if other CVS stores or other locations would be different.

        • Couponj

          My CVS lets you use expired ECB but I think they have to be within the same month. I always try to use them up ASAP though so I don't forget them! If you lose them you are out of luck… I did get a free paper towel roll for calling the 800 # once for my lost $10 ECB. Thankfully I found it about a week later under the seat of my car! :-)

      • CVSer

        Hey, if the bucks are expired then this probably won't help, but I was thinking I saw a while back on the cvs site that you could print out your ECB's if needed. Hope this helps, and BTW this was a looon time ago when I thought I saw this…..

      • Firstbrownie

        My store takes expired ECB/store coupons up to 30 days past expiration, so take it in a ask!

      All right you coupon godesses…I've made it through my first winter season as a couponer!! I now know cough drops are free and you can make money on vitamins and cold medicines. I am in unknown territory now. What are my price points for sunscreen and tanning lotions? Jergens…I am in my thirty's now…faking a tan is my only option in order to avoid looking like an overfreckled lizard. Did I miss out by not buying the Jergens natural glow last week? There was no acorn and currently I live and die by the acorn! Advice please!

    • Belinda

      I have Dove Manuf $2 coupons that clearly state “Redeem at Walmart”. Will CVS take these?

      • Couponj

        Yes, used 4 of them there when they were 2/$4 a week or so ago.

        • Dvherrera25

          I just asked my CVS and they said CVS doesnt take manufacturer coupons…..

          • Firstbrownie

            CVS does take manufacture coupons; maybe you meant competitor coupons…..
            Well, if the barcode starts with a 9 or 5 and says “manufacture q”, it can be used at CVS. The “redeem at Wal-Mart” is just an advertising trick to get you to use it there. Most CVS stores do not take competitor coupons (Wags, Publix, etc.) hth!

            • Dvherrera25

              Ah! Yes, I meant competitor! Phew! Sorry :-)

    • Amy

      I didn't get the PF coupon in my SS.

    • Kenzbug

      Another question. I stopped in CVS this morning to look in their clearance section to see what was there I might want. I came home and matched up a few coupons, but my question is this. They have Clairol hair color on clearance for $2.25 a box, I came home and found coupons for $5 off wyb 2 boxes. Since the coupon is more than the product by .50 cents, can I use this coupon or do I need something to fill in the gap?

      • Alison P

        You can use it and then the $0.50 overage will apply to any other things that you are getting so pick up something else in clearance or a yummy piece of easter candy to cover the difference.

      • Slgumm

        My CVS had the same deal. I bought 7 Clairol haricolors and used (3) $5/2 and (1) $1/1 coupon. There was also nice n easy haricolor on clearance for $1.99 so I got it and used a $1/1 coupon. The grand total for all of it was $2.84. I was so happy! The overage from the $5 coupons was put toward the leftovers from the two $1 off coupons.

        • Kenzbug

          I tried this morning. The clerk wouldn't let me use the coupons on clearance items. Anybody have a copy of the coupon policy as far as clearance items go?

          • guest

            If it scans at a clearance price you can use a coupon. If it has the little white sticker over the barcode you can not use a coupon. That's what I have been told anyway.

      • Stefany

        No ! You don't have to fill the gap . The cashier will adjust the price to match with the clearance item . All you have to pay the tax . Last week , I got 2 boxes used $ 5 Q paid tax only .

    • Kristina

      I had a problem with “overage”. I got all excited about the scenario last week, went in to use the $2 coupon for the Theracare patches ($1) and even used my Gain $1 coupon for the 97c bottles… Every single “over” coupon got reduced down to the price of the item. I still got great deals and still was happy with the overall outcome, but between being out of 2 items in my master plan and then the lack of overage… I was just a bit sad. Has anyone else had any problems?

      • Anna

        It depends on the cashier….. about half at my CVS reduce down. I'm not sure what the actual policy is though….

        • carrie

          I called corporate about this very thing 2 weeks ago when a $5 Q was reduced to $3.49 (but yet the cashier didn't change the face of the Q so that CVS would only be reimbursed $3.49 instead of the $5). At first, corporate told me that overage should be allowed and had me on hold while he called my store. After a few minutes, he came back on and said he had misunderstood what I had been asking and that overage is not allowed. If anyone else calls corporate with this same question and gets a different answer, I would be interested to know. I guess the only way we can get overage now is not by coupons alone but when a corresponding ECB brings about overage (like the Johnson $ Johnson deal for this next week).

      • guest

        I had this same problem with the theraflu last week….. I complained with the manager on duty and because they couldn’t take the full coupon off, she instead issued me with ECB’s with the difference of the money I lost… I don’t understand it either but I was happy she did that

    • Gracie680

      The ad (and the list above) says Limit 1 – how strict are they about that?

      • Wes Lindsay Evatt

        extremely. you have to have your CVS ExtraCare card to get the sale price, therefore it tracks if you have bought the item or not

        • Gracie680

          One of the “deals” above works with 2 PF items.

    • Dixiewicks2002

      My CVS had a sign at the register last week that they are no longer accepting competitor coupons and when I questioned the casher she told me that they stopped as some customer's were being greedy! I have not had a chance to check another CVS in our area to see if they are stopping as well. I hate to see that.

      • Donna

        Wow. My CVS doesn't even take competitor's coupons. We don't even price match.

    • NorthALCouponer

      Thanks for posting this! I'm in northern AL as well and I was wondering if it would be worth it for me to switch my shopping day to Saturday night instead of Sunday morning but if the ECBs won't print, it's not worth it unless a coupon is expiring or something.

    • Adriane

      I think most of us have had ECB's expire at some point, especially if we've been doing this a while. We also sometimes miss out on using a high value coupon every now & then.

      It will only cost 1.99 for the mascara with the 1.00 coupon. If you buy it saturday with the 40% discount still in effect and the 1.00, it will be free with 2.00 profit.

      Where can you print this coupon from?

      • Donna

        This is true for all CVS stores. this came down from corporate this week. we used to start the ad on Saturday mornings but now we can not activate it until 4pm. There are gonna be a lot of mad “coupon moms” this morning.
        In Flowery Branch, Ga.

        • mar777

          The coupon moms wiping the shelves out Saturday are the reason. The ad technically starts sunday but the shelves are wiped clear so ppl are complaining to corporate. So really couponers have done this to eachother. If They wipe out Saturday night, it won't be long until its active Sunday morning.

        • Kenzbug

          I asked my CVS store and they said they wouldn't activate it until midnight on Saturday. I'd like to be able to shop there when the sale actually starts because I usually don't get any of the deals because when I get there at 7 am every Sunday morning, everything is gone. I wish they would go ahead and start the ad Sunday. It's not like I go in there and wipe the shelves out. There are only 2 in our household and I only buy enough for us. I wish the stores would do something about the extreme couponers. There is no reason why 1 or 2 people should be allowed to go in and wipe out everything on sale. I know it's nice of people to donate to the homeless shelters but why can't they, if only 1 a month, just go through all their stockpile and donate the excess. That is what I am doing today, although it's not going to a homeless shelter but to a poor family of 4 I know, because after all they are on the verge of being homeless so I help out whenever I have extra stuff to give. So all you extreme couponers out there, just remember this, please be courteous to other shoppers, you never know what their situation might be.

          • Bunchapunkins

            Actually, it wouldn't be the extreme couponers… cuz there is a limit1 or 2 on everything. It would just be… couponers in general.

      how do they do the 24 hour thing exactly? i have never tried it and i know both my local cvs's are 24 hour. also how do you get the extra 7ECB thing?

    • vanessavanessa

      my cvs won't take b1g1 and dollar off coupon for the items. for example i'm buying 2 clean and clear bodywash the deal says to use b1g1 coupon and $2 off to get it free, my cvs won't take both coupons. can someone explain to me what can i tell the cashier..how do i explain to them that it's legal to do it. thank you!!!

      • Slgumm

        There is a good explanation of cvs's coupon policy on this site. You may want to print it off and take it with you. I don't understand why they are giving you a problem with this. You are taking the dollar amount off of the one that's not free so it should work. 2 items, 2 coupons. It's not that hard of a concept…at least you wouldn't think it is.

    • Santiagosandi

      fyi someone had the 5 off physicians on ebay last week, I am sure they still have them. I got (10) 5 dollars off for 3.21. I don't like spending money to save money but a girls gotta do what a girls gotta do. :)

      • guest

        I thought the limit is one so what good is 10 coupons?

        • tarabj

          A good coupon is a good coupon.

    • Does anybody know where I can read and print CVS coupon policy? I went in there this morning to buy some hair color that was on clearance. I handed the clerk my coupons and he said he couldn’t take them because he was going to have to ring the items up as “taxable”? Made completely no sense to me, I thought everything was taxable other than service. I think he just didn’t want to take the coupons because it would have made the items free and he just made up something. I’d like to read the policy myself and see what it says about clearance items and coupons and call the store manager. It irritated me because he wouldn’t even try to scan the coupon to see if it would work, just kept telling me it wouldn’t. I tried calling their corporate office but they were closed. Any help finding this policy would be greatly appreciated. I can’t find it on CVS.com

    • Tamara

      Everyone – be careful with the Physician's Formula sale and Extra Bucks tonight (Saturday)! I've seen a lot of people posting that you can catch both weeks' sales if you buy the mascara or another product tonight, but at my store, when both sales are in effect on Sat. night, if something is on sale both weeks (different % or amount off or ECBs), the computer will give you the sale price of what it thinks the “best deal” is. It doesn't take ECBs into account, so tonight, my store will still be giving me any of the Physician's Formula makeup at 40% off with no ECBs (still this week's sale). It sees the makeup for tomorrow being full price and doesn't pay attention to the ECBs it will be giving you (way better deal for us – computers are stupid!). I'm not sure if all of the stores do this, but I never ask them to give me this week's and the next week's sale combined. That's just embarrassing for me – I try not to make waves in my store – I'm in there too much already :) If it worked out that way, though, that would be great. I always scan my items at the Coupon Center machine to check the prices before I approach the cashier. Tonight, if the makeup rings in at a discount, I will know it's still using the 40% sale from this week and not the new sale with ECBs. I'll wait until tomorrow morning to get the ECBs deal. I hope this helps. I probably just confused everyone!

      • thanks for sharing this. :) I would have been so confused tonight. I think I will probably just wait till tomorrow anywho to get my sales. I have my one favorite store and cashier and that is the 24 hour one. LOL

    • Jane

      Fyi. Corporate has changed its policy with the ads. Store managers can't active the add til 4:30 pm on saturdays. Sorry to those ppl that go in Saturday mornings.

      Seems that all of the printable q's are non existent. Shout, Glade, Pledge, Dove Deodorant…
      Do they not populate on the coupon site until Sunday or are they already gone?

      Sorry I have so many questions today!

      • kpswagger

        You're confusing Walgreens with CVS. At CVS none of that matters. :)

      • Sandra

        that is wrong. You can use the ECB to purchase the same product or the same company items!!!

      • Dvherrera25

        Wow! Thanks! I posted another question (or 2) below if ya'll can answer those too! LOL Thanks again. :-)

      • Tammie

        You may be thinking of Walgreens, which has more things to remember when you are doing RR there. At CVS, you can use your ECB to buy whatever (unsure about prescriptions, cigarettes, etc.).

    • Aprilsexton24

      I am confused about being able to use 2 man. coupons on 1 item. I thought you could only use 1 man. coupon and 1 store coupon.

      • Sandra

        You can only use 1 M and 1 S q on each item. If you use a B1G1 coupon that is 1 M q on the free item. You may also use a M q on the item you are paying for.

      • Sandra

      • Thats the zip code u should use to get the coupon but it said limit reached.

      • tina

        at the top of the pages whether it is smart source, coupons (dot com) or redplum there is place to put your zip code and sometimes they can only be found under certain zips, so anytime you see an example like that (30003) change the zip code to that and you should be able to find the coupon that is in question. it is very simple to change the zip code.

    • Haley

      Just called and confirmed that deals don't start till 4 PM today in all CVS stores!

      • rjones

        that is correct, corporate sent an email to all managers stating this is a new policy. All stores will be 100% compliant with no exceptions!

        • Robin

          what is new policy? I just called the CVS store I frequent just to make sure that tomorrow sales would start today (it's a non 24 hour store) and they said that they no longer allow customers to come in and shop for next week's sales. Do I need to speak to a manager?

          • Mrs. Ellis

            I just went into my local CVS less than an hour ago and was told that the sale doesn't start until sunday. That was a wasted trip! So they are all supposed to start it at 4? Grr

        I asked my CVS last week. They are a non-24 hr store.
        A lady in line said the sales don't start until Sunday… and that this is a new policy. What gives?? Maybe she was trying to save the good stuff for herself :)

      I called my CVS the other day, and the manager told me their Sunday deals start at 2pm on Saturday. I just went at 4pm and bought 2 physicians formula products (Lip plumper and mascara), and though they rang up 40% off, no ECBs printed. I bought a couple other things, like the Skintimate shave gel, that did print ECBs. Will a call to customer service net me the ECBs, or will I forfeit them because I shopped early? There were too many people in line behind me, so I didn't go back in.

      • Ladymoon0121

        I wonder the same thing. I went to my local CVS this evening and purchased on of the physician formula products, no ecbs printed either. The signs were up so I thought the deal was in to affect, so do you email or call customer service. Or just try tomorrow, I hate I used my $6 off coupon. :(

      • Bsporter

        I went into CVS just a while a go. For some of the things I bought, the cashier had to go into the computer and print them seperatly. She did it with no problem because she was able to look into the add and confirm it. Just have to ask!!!

        • Ladymoon0121

          Mine would not print the $7 for me and the signs were up and all.

      • KellieTX

        Well the same thing happened to me tonight with the Physicians Formula. No ECB but obviously it was still 40% off. I did ask the manager why I did not get my ECB's even though the the tag was posted by the P.F. he told me “oh, it must be on clearance” even though there was clearly NO clearance tags ANYWHERE…. when I mentioned that he said “oh well it must be mistagged then” whatever that means… So I am calling customer service as well! I feel bad for being stingy and calling but I purchased that item to get the ECB's!!

    • Mlaurie406

      Has any had any issues using the printable $5 off pfc coupon?? Just want to make sure before I head in there tomorrow!!

      • AshATL

        I used mine with no problem, but the $7 ECB didn't print today…

        • Ladymoon0121

          Same thing here, I used mine tonight but the lady said she could not take off the full $5 since the value was less than that. No ECB either.

          • Queuepawn

            Didn't get the 7 ECB either–thought it was too good to be true (40% off, $6 off, I didn't have any MQ PLUS 7 ECB), so I figured it probably wouldn't happen. Still got some cheap make up, so I'm thrilled. Overall, paid $1.61 OOP ($1.23 of that was tax), and got $4.50 back in ECB for toothpaste and shampoo. Percentage saved 98%. :) Certainly can't complain. Thanks for posting coupon matchups.

      • joanna00

        I used both printables, and I had no problems! (There is one for Mineral Wear and another for Eye Booster, but both coupons say “or any other Physician's Formula product.”)

        • Mlaurie406

          Thanks everyone!

    • Nicolleborton

      hey guys i didnt get the PF coupon either but i did get one in my email and its PDF for $5.00 off any PF item so you are able to print as many as you like…

      let me know if anyone wants it =)

    • Mary

      Just printed my 2/2 coupon for band aid / neosporin products and it says it can not be used for 1st aid products, is band aids considered 1st aid…I would think it would be. Also it says that neosporin trial & travel size is excluded.

      • Tiffanyf56

        can you send one to me?? : )
        tiffanyf56@yahoo.com
        THANK YOU!!!!!

      • tygirl13

        The punctuation of the fine print indicates that Aveeno first aid products and neosporin travel size are excluded. Why would they make a coupon for “BAND-AID Brand Adhesive Bandages” and then exclude all first aid products?

        “Coupon not valid on CAREFREE 20 ct and 22 ct sizes; AVEENO Baby, Bar Soaps, and First Aid products, or NEOSPORIN trial and travel sizes.”

    • Kate

      Can you e-mail it to me please to nazokatt@gmail.com?

    • Dlight89

      Just wondering how you can use a manufacturers coupon and lets say a 50 cents off manufacturers coupon on the same item?.

      • tina

        not really sure what item you are asking about exactly but no it is on manuf coupon per item, now you can use one store coupon and one manuf coupon on one item…….does that help?

    • bev 37

      I had asked at my cvs yesterday when does the sale start? They told me sun. Just went their and got a pepsi. It rang up for the sale price. The manger was their that we know asked him when does it start. He said 4:00

    • please read

      PLEASE make sure this is a legal coupon to reprint. If you reprint PDF files multiple times and use them at stores, they will not get reimbursed by the manufacturer and will lose money. Then, they will stop accepting coupons. Remember, reprinting PDFs is a form of coupon fraud (check the fine print on the coupon before you print multiple copies). Just because you can, doesn't mean you should…..

      • Bee

        I don't believe the retailer is left without reimbursement because there is actually no way for a retailer to monitor how many a person has used. Suppose a person uses one and goes to another cashier and uses another later in the day. That cannot possibly be the store's fault. The store has a very good defense, because Physician's Formula did not put any security controls on their coupon.

        However, I also do not advocate “sharing” the coupon. It's a hard call because the manufacturer puts everyone on the honor system and that's just a little beyond naive in my opinion. In fact, this company is publicly traded and the shareholders would probably be livid if they thought about the potential liability the marketing department has set them up for–PDF long-dated coupon.

        • Shuffman3737

          I'm rather confused on this. I know a lot of the printable coupons limit you to 2 printed per computer. I printed 2 b1g1 nutranail coupons the other day, then printed 2 more from another computer. All the numbers were the same for all 4 coupons. Why does it make a difference how many are printed and why would the manufacturer not reimburse for them?

          • Bee

            The ones you printed were likely Bricks coupons with strict security controls, which is why you were only able to get 2 per computer. They actually do have unique numbers in the upper right-hand corner. If they were Smart source coupons, they have a unique PIN on each one.

            The Physician's Formula is PDF and was not intended to be mass-produced. Yes, the company did set themselves up for it and I don't believe CVS is going to be “burned” for accepting them. As I stated, Physician's Formula opened up this can of worms, expecting people to police themselves, which as we know they are rarely able to do.

            If the PF coupon were actually FAKE, then the store would get burned, but it's not a fake coupon. People are just being overwhelmingly greedy about this stupid make-up coupon.

        • please read

          Actually, the stores are not reimbursed. Reports based on the coupons that are turned in for reimbursal and the percentage that are actually get reimbursed come out reguarly. The loss discrepency between the two comes straight off the bottom line of each individual store.

      • Madbeachin1

        So true. I had received the PF PDF coupon awhile back and it was fine. Used it no problem. However, I purchased some off Ebay and they all had the same exact sku. They did exactly what you are NOT supposed to do. It made me so mad.

    • Coupongal18

      I called two of my local CVS stores today and asked about when the ads start and the awesome news was that both start them on Saturday mornings – they run both ads on Saturdays!! How awesome is that – good to know for the future…..this week, I am depending on a lot of the coupons in tomorrow's papers….so, it doesn't really help me but yay…how awesome!

      • That is super awesome! Where are you from? I have a feeling that none of the CVS stores around here would outright tell anybody if they started running the ad early. They all act like all the ECB deals are covert or something…geesh! lol, sorry, just wasted a trip trying to get the double deal on physician's formula! Hope you got some!

    • Coupongal18

      I'm disappointed. I don't have the Physican Formula coupons – does anyone have any to spare – silly question I know!!!!

      Has anyone tried the pledge deal idea?..The add says Pledge spray 9.7-12.5 oz (with no picture, im guessing this is the pledge furniture care product?) but I'm not sure the deal includes pledge multi-surface aerosol which is what she Free coupon goes towards…has anyone tried the deal tonight?

      • Coupongal18

        I tried it and got one regular pledge and then the special pledge for special surfaces like marble and stainless steel frig….I combine those two with two srubbing bubbles!!! Worked beautifully! :)

    • I just got back from CVS (Tampa, FL suburbs) @ 8:30 and the Double Deal didn't work for the physician's formula cosmetics :( :( :(, I'm going to try to return it tomorrow, I don't even know how/if they'll do that. I used $5 ECB and $1 MQ…glad it worked for some! :)

      • Gamblesonsfarms

        They put most of my refund on a CVS money card and the rest in cash.

    • KellieTX

      So I just got home from my CVS trip….. dissapointed! I purchased the Physicians formula blush which is still 40% from last weeks ad that technically ends tonight. They DID have the new ad specials going on as well, the physicians formula 7ecb tags were up and all. So I got that and some pledge and a few other things and ended up paying $.78 oop. When my 7ecb did not print out I asked why and was told I did not get it because “it must be on clearance” (even though there were NO clearance tags ANYWHERE). I showed this to the manager, and he said well the sticker must be in the wrong spot?!?! Annoying! Since I only spent $.78 and did earn other ECB's I left….. I am assuming since the item was still ringing up at 40% off it did not give me an ECB.

      • lucy

        The same thing happened to me!!! I ended up returning my stuff. Really disappointed.

        • Gamblesonsfarms

          Me too..no ECBS on the Physicians Formula…returned my items also..not a good trip!

      • Lori

        When they start a sale on Saturday, and something is on sale both weeks, the computer will give you what it considers the better of the two deals. It does not take into consideration any ECB's. So, if PF was on sale last week at 40% off, and this week full price but with ECB's, then it will give you last week's price on Saturday night, with no ECB's, since the price at the register is lower at 40% off.

    • carmen

      i have a question and sorry if this is already answered but i just started couponing this week & have never shopped at cvs besides drinks or something small. w/ that said i saw that the store actually has a coupon for the physicians formula? how do i get it? do i have to purchase the item and then it prints out or can i just get it w/o purchasing the item? i want to get the coupon today but wait til tomorrow to use it to prevent not getting the ecb if that makes sense? plz help!

      • Burroughs85

        It prints from the coupon center in the store. In the CVS stores there is a large red machine that serves as a price checker and prints coupons when you scan your Extra Care card….the coupons are different all the time and different for each card, so there is no certainty that one will get that coupon. I was lucky to get one but mine printed like a week ago:( Sorry:(

        • carmen

          ok thanks for explaining it to me! it works like the machines in food lion then when you scan your mvp card. makes sense! thx anyways!

    • amanda

      I went to get my double deal on cvs as well…I didnt have any coupons but thought it was a great deal either way. My ECB didn't print, but the manager on duty allowed the cashier to force print them so that was a super score!

        Ok now im reading all the comments. How is everyone gonna be able to reprint this coupon from an email and be able to use this? and some of you are upset because of the 7.00 ecb not printing with the 40% off sale on it too. its because it wont print when there clearanced. cvs rules state that, and people are complaining about it. Your still gonna get for free if you buy it without the 40% off. theres no reason for complaining folks. Never seen so much commotion over a coupon.

        • Sandra

          It happens to be in PDF format. Quite concerning. CVS is going to get burned by these Q's and ultmately we as consumers will pay the price.
          Apparently the original one came from Physicians Formula but it has been reproduced and even sold on Ebay as a PDF.

    • Jen

          There is a printable PDF coupon (actually 2 different coupons — one for Mineral Wear and another for Eye Booster) that is being circulated from a recent PF promotion.

          • nackle78

            it says it's for the eye booster than underneath that says “or any physicians formula product) I am looking at it right now.

            • joanna00

              Yeah, I meant to include that (since I used it on “other” items, myself!), but I forgot! Both versions of the coupon says that. :)

    • Create4good

      Just got back from my CVS here in the great state of Texas (Dallas/Ft. Worth area) and just wanted to post a good deal that I haven't seen posted yet: Dove and Cadbury bars of chocolate (3.3 oz.) are B2G1 free. I know the coupons from the “magic red box” tend to vary, but this past week I've gotten 3 – $1 off Dove 3.3 oz bar. They are regularly $2.19/bar. That made it $1.40 for 3 delicious bars of chocolate! Also, I got some Physician's Formula powder, with a $1 off coupon, and it rang up 40% off, but no ECB printed. I told the cashier about the $7 ECB and he printed one off manually. One more thing: The Keebler/Nabisco deal didn't include Triscuits in my store, so the $1 off coupon wouldn't apply. Hope this helps!

    • Bjm99

      What page is the Physician's coupon on can't find it in 3-20 ss Thanks Betty

    • Gracie680

      Wow, I just got 4 Windex items free! I bought 4 cans, 2 regular, 2 multisurface.They are 2/6, I used (2) $1 printables and 2 B1G1 free (buy one reg and get multi free). The register took off 4.99 for the b1g1 coupon! Each! So – spent 12.00, got $12. off in coupons AND 4 ECB – woot! Oh – and I used a LOT of the PF coupons – no worries, they are working just fine, and I am not getting any hassle over them.

      • Gracie680

        Oh, and btw – the printables for the Keebler products are for large size boxes – and for 2 of them. So sad I coudln't get the snack size for .50 :( But getting $60 worth of PF for $13 makes up for that :)

    • Danyeln

      ODD. I was just over on the Physicians Formula Facebook Page where they claim that they never put out a $5 coupon. The only one they are claiming is the recent $1 off Q. Hinky.

      • Anonymous

        Yeah, they said they never put a $5 coupon out in the weekly coupon ad insert only a $1 coupon. However, they did put out the $5 pdf coupon.

        Quote from Physicians Formula Facebook Page: “Hi everyone! There was never a $5 coupon (we aren’t sure where that came from.) We did run a $1 coupon nationally in many markets last Sunday. Please consult mPFbeauty.com for our latest promos.”

      • tina

        where did you see that on their website????

        • atlanta coupon queen

          it says rebates in top right hand corner – but make sure you got one with the try one free on the actual product.

        • Anonymous

          I saw it on the company’s FACEBOOK PAGE not the company web site. Someone asked about the coupon and the company answered that there was never a $5 coupon in the newspapers only a $1 coupon back in Feb.

    • Donna

      I would just like to comment on those talking about returning their products or talking about how there ECB's didn't print out for the Physicians Formula make up. I am a veteran at shopping at CVS and my days use to be Saturdays because of the double deal days. Now with more people couponing, corporate has caught on and I've seen some new effects taken place because of it. So most stores will not allow the double deals on Saturday (although some stores still do allow it -for now). It has really altered my shopping on Saturdays but I've gotten over it.

      It WILL come to the point where ALL CVS stores not doing the double deal days. If there is a sale that is running into the next week (i.e. Physician's make up) the register will pick the most recent deal. (that's the way it's always been). If you go in shopping knowing there is a chance that you may or may not get that ECB, you can't blame it on CVS. If the tags are up, it's because they won't have to put so many tags up for the sales starting the next day. They have A LOT of tags to put up. I know this because I've seen their pile of tags. And if you really want to complain that there is a tag there, you can clearly see the dates on the tag.

      I think with everyone making a “big fit” about it (deals & coupons), they will start to tighten up the strings to their coupon policy. I'd hate to see the greatness of couponing at CVS go down the drain due to those that are willing to risk doing the double deals and complaining about it if it doesn't go to the way they planned.

      I know we all want to get that good deal before it's out of stock, but bare in mind people, a good thing won't last long if we keep chipping at it. Rain checks are always the best option. I'm not here to pick a fight but to just state the facts. Let's not ruin a good thing!

      • Bee

        I think the double deal days originally were just for the managers' and employees' benefit, to give them extra time to get everything in place before the sale actually started. I don't think it ever was to be considered an expected customer benefit, merely a pleasant surprise if it happened to work out for you.

        It is a little over the top to expect both the 40% off and the ECB. These chains ultimately do make the bulk of their profits from prescriptions, so it really is not in their benefit to continue to fool with a bunch of people who only whiz in and out to scoop up deals. They could put the brakes on most of it and still make piles of money off the people who go in there and fill scrips. Not to say that the people on this board don't fill prescriptions but a lot of people who go in and get the deals at Wag's and CVS are not filling prescriptions, myself included. We don't have any scrips anywhere currently.

        Just saying that it's not realistic to expect the chains to indefinitely court the type customer who only wants free/moneymaker items.

      Funny Story…

      I have been sick all week and have not shopped at all, but yesterday I realized I had 5.00 in ECB's about to expire. I almost said forget it, but then decided I could not throw 5.00 away. I ran out to get the Crest t-paste deal (3.49 w/2.50 ECB lim. 2). I had coupons so it would be 2 tubes of free t-paste and I would have 5.00 in ECB's with a new expiration date.
      I grabbed the t-paste, headed to checkout and placed them along with my two coupons and ECB on the counter. As I was digging my wallet out for sales tax and not paying attention, the cashier says, “you don't want to use this”. I look up and she is holding my ECB. I look at her funny I guess because she tells me I am going to lose money. I look at the total and it is only 3.89. I look at the invividual charges and the toothpaste rang up 2.75 not 3.49. I tell her, “Oh, you didn't charge me enough”. Who does this??? Who tells someone to charge them more?
      Turns out (and I did not realize it) that the new sale had already been uploaded and Crest is onsale this week 2/5.50, but no ECB's. I tried to get her to override it and charge me more, but she couldn't (again who does this) =+) I was concerned about losing the ECB's since it was still Saturday afternoon. She assured me she could fix the ECB's, but not the price. I ended up getting a third tube since the sale that starts today does not have a limit and got all three for .83. I was driving home trying to figure out what happened to me over the last ten years that has made me all but beg to be charged more for a product!
      Happy Shopping!

      • Syndilew

        I did this too. I was in RA a couple of months ago and grabbed some clearance Christmas lights to fill my order up to the next dollar UP and then the clearanced lights were even more clearanced! I said the exact same thing to the cashier. You have to charge me .38 instead of 13. She looked at me like I was insane. LOL

      I guess we should expect Physician Formula cosmetic prices to go up and for them to limit any future coupon offerings. Short-term mindset usually results in paying in the end.

    • atlanta coupon queen

      I got my PF mascara with my $6 Red box q . . .I'm not going to screw over my CVS with the fradulant coupon that is going around – and got $7 ECB's in return . . .and purchaed the mascara with a free rebate on it. Nice moneymaker – the right way.

    • Indycouponer

      I just went to CVS, and was a little disappointed. The CVS coupon center did not print the $6 for PF makeup, also, for some reason, my ECB Bucks did not print on the Johnson and Johnson that I purchased for .99 cents either. Spoke to the cashier, she had no resolution and mgr was not in. Oh well, still got some good products really FREE. Guess I will have to plan a little better.

      • Maimaie

        I often have both of these issues at my CVS. The coupon machine either prints coupons for things I will NEVER use (like hair color) or it prints really crappy coupons (like 25 cents of 3 or 4 items). However, last week I got really lucky. I scanned my card and the printer was out of paper. I went back to the pharmacy to pick something up and on my receipt I got 2 coupons on of which was $7 off a PF item! I guess you just have to keep crossing your fingers.

        As far as the ECB are concerned if they don't print and the deal is in the ad, just grab one (the cashier should have one behind the counter) and show them the deal. They can print them for you after the fact.

      • Kristi

        i had the same problem…i had to purchase 11 of the travel size band-aids since the cost was 99 cents at my store. 10 qty @ 99 cents = $9.90…10 cents shy of the $10 required to get the $5 ECB's. it was still an awesome deal!

      Am I understanding this correctly, the $5 PF printable coupon is NOT a real coupon?? I have 2 of them that I was planning on using today. I checked on the PF Facebook page and all I saw was there was no $5 coupon in any newspaper, it did not mention a printable one. Help, please!

      • kpswagger

        Using two $5 PF coupons worked for me earlier today at CVS.

      • Rickysgirl

        The only ones I saw were coming from the cvs machine for some people, I didn't see any in the paper, and didn't see any from coupon clipping services either :-(

      • Bee

        These coupons are real and came straight from PF website. However, they were not meant for mass distribution. If you did not request a free sample online and receive this coupon instead of the sample a few Sundays ago, you are not entitled to this coupon.

        However, how ridiculous was it of PF to product a PDF coupon??

        Used to, Wholly Guacamole would have these type coupons, but now they have switched to the restriction of 2 per computer.

        • Heather

          Thank you, that clears that up!

    • Rickysgirl27

      To all of the people asking for them to email the PF coupon, I hope that deal is worth it for you to screw CVS over so they stop taking certain coupons! People fake PDF coupons all the time and pass around coupons to everyone when they were for a select audience, that is what causes them to have to crack down!! I love PF makeup too but it just isn't worth doing something wrong.

      • Sdanorth

        My CVS has an area behind the register where they've taped copies of coupons that are fraudulent, and they compare mine to that group. It's the first step toward not accepting printed coupons, and the people trying to get something for nothing are the reason why.

        • Adriane

          No one should use coupons they know to be fake, but we're ALL trying to get something for no money. That's what “free” and “overage” mean.

    • kernessa

      If I have a MF rimmel coupon and at the bottom shows purchase at Walmart – can I only use this coupon at Walmart?

      • Sandra

        No, that is only a suggestion for marketing purposes. BUT….. You may find it difficult to get a store to take it.

    • Rachel

      I'm having major issues finding a lot of these coupons in my circulars and some are expired online. I'm very frustrated. Is anyone else having this issue too?

      • Leah

        My Sunday inserts are always pretty sorry. They do vary from region to region (I’m in N Florida) and about half of the coupons mentioned here are not included in my RP. I was really hoping to take advantage of the dove/axe/degree deal this week, but got none of those in my paper. Stinks…

    • Amy

      This morning my CVS had signs all over stating that they would no longer allow both ads to run on Saturdays. Looks like it's coming down everywhere from corporate, it's just taking a little while to get to some stores. I'm in Western KY.

      • Jbush27

        I had the same experience. I usually shop on Saturdays, but last week my CVS said corporate told them to stop doing that. So now I shop on Sundays, no biggy though.

      • Guest

        Amy, I am also in Western KY and shopped in Murray last night for both sales.

        • Amy

          I've never shopped on Saturdays, too many horror stories about how ECBs don't print, and the ECBs are my #1 priority. The signs were in Mayfield and said this became effective this week, so be careful when you go this coming Saturday!

    • Sillysnicks

      FYI those of you putting your email on here are just asking for trouble. There are spam bots and people that search out email addresses from blogs and then start sending out mass amounts of spam. Personally, I think you will get what you deserve for asking for a coupon you didn't rightfully get, but I felt I should warn you of the risk. Never mind the fact you are going to ruin couponing for all of us trying to do the right thing and follow the rules. Is it really worth $5?

      • Ddech

        What do you mean by “you didn't rightfully get”??

        • Ddech

          Never mind – I read more comments below and assume you mean the PDF coupon.

          I am surprised that PF would put out a PDF coupon.

    • Guest

      I bought 3 dove deos and a pack of lever soap. My ECB's didn't print because it says I've only spent $9.50. Should I call about this, or go back to the store?

      • How much did you spend? If you spent at least $15, then you should talk to the manager. If you bought the size Lever Soap indicated above, it sounds as if only one of your deos was credited toward the ECBs.

    • I got an e-mail from Disney Movie Rewards with a coupon for $5 off Tangled DVD or Blu-Ray “at participating retailers”. Not sure if it will work at CVS or not but I'll find out on Tuesday. Between that and the ECB, that's a pretty good price for a new movie for the kids!

    • Coupongal18

      Just got back from all of my “shopping” time – this week was awesome for me. Most the of time, there are only one or two things in the ad that I really use or need so I just get those few things…but this week – this week was awesome. Everything I got was something we used plus we were low on…….. this morn at CVS, my total before coupons and ECB's was $34.54 and after the coupons and my ECB's from last week, I only had to shell out $3.52!!!!!! I was super excited!!!!!! :) I got the Pledge deal, Scrubbing bubbles, Irish Spring, toothbrushes, shaving cream, clean and clear body washes, and a filler item!!! WOW!!!! Thanks Jenny!!!!!

    • Rachel

      So my CVS would not take the $2/2 Neosporin and band-aid coupons. Was so mad but they wouldn't ring up … said they were not found in the system. I went ahead and bought them and have my $5 for next week but I'm a little put out. Just wanted to let you guys know that you may want to take a back up $1.50/2 coupon or something.

      • Lisa

        I was able to use the $2/2 coupon no problem.

        • Kristy

          I took my $1.50/2 but my $2/2 worked.

      • jennaj81

        The cashier had the same problem with mine, but she “pushed” it through since I had obviously bought the correct items. It just depends on your cashier.

    • Burroughs85

      Hey everyone. I'm still somewhat new to CVS and was wondering about their printed store coupons that are expired. I've heard some say that their stores willingly accept expired ECB and store coupons. By no means do I want to “sneak it past them” but was wondering if all stores do or just some? I in no way want to be sneaky, just trying to make my game plan and trying to figure out what to use….thanks!

      • Danyeln

        That is one of the many things that seem to be up to store managements or maybe regional managers. My local stores do not accept expired ECBs but like you I have seen people say thier store would. Your best bey is to ask at your preferred store then abide by what they tell you.

        • Burroughs85

          Thanks for all the replies! I will definately ask first, if so great….if not, they still give us tons of great deals!!

    • Happy Feet

      I had a 3/13/11 in store coupon for PF and they took it!!! Now, the bad news, I forgot to use my $5 off $25… Can I call headquarters or take my CVS in-store coupon a credit… It will expire before I can use it next. :(

      • Macclennypta

        I had the same problem this morning in my CVS. She had to manually put the coupon in. Then the bandaids would not ring up towards my ECB, but luckily I have really great staff and they corrected both problems!

    • JessL415

      Just got back from a HORRIBLE experience at my local CVS (Greenville, SC, Mills Ave). A shift supervisor checked me out and he was brutal! I was doing the Olay deal and first he wouldn't take the $3 Olay coupon Jenny suggested b/c the items on sale aren't the Regenerist. I told him it would still scan and he said “Maybe, but that would be illegal.” Next the BOGO Olay, he wouldn't take b/c the body wash was $7 and the coupon said max retail of $4.99 (there were no Olay body washes that low) and he said he wouldn't take it anyway because it said Buy a Cleanser get a body wash free and I bought cream, not cleanser… When I protested he got loud and said “I will not allow you to commit coupon fraud here, that is immoral and illegal and I will not do it”…. It was AWFUL! I told him he has no place to make accusations like that and that all the blogs and couponers that shopped at CVS paid his wages so he shouldn't be so jaded and critical!! I definitely was snarky to him after that and asked for his last name and told him I would be contacting his regional manager…..

      • UseCouponsTheRightWay

        If the coupons are not for the correct items, what do you want him to do…CVS will not get reimbursed! If the coupon doesn't match you are not supposed to use it even it it “will scan” like you said. He was correct in saying you might be committing coupon fraud. If it walks like a duck and it quacks like a duck, well it might just be A DUCK!

        • Mel

          The olay regenerist is more expensive. That's why the coupon is for $3.00. You shouldn't try to use a coupon for the wrong product. Jenny doesn't work for CVS and she can make mistakes. She is human. The manager was right about that one. He should have taken the other one and entered the value on the coupon.

          • Mel

            Oops shouldn't have taken the other one either

          • JessL415

            He wasn't a manager.

          • Concerned

            What is the difference in her using the $3.00 q and you all using a high value q for a trial size? Hmmmm. And……..Jenny makes a nice living at what she is doing with this. Realize that this is her JOB…. Now, if you just put out “whatever” kind of work on your job, how long would you last? You all want to act like she is doing this out of kindness!! LOL… Nothing in life is free. I have noticed that many of her match up do not match up. So if you are doing just as she is telling you to do then what right do you all have to jump her like you have? Fraud is certainly wrong.. However, she was doing only what Jenny and/or Southern Savers helpers were telling her to do.. Geeeez

            • UseCouponsTheRightWay

              So she shouldn’t use her own brain as well and read what the coupons say? You sound like a typical kid…but Johnny did it too!!! That doesn’t make it right. If you don’t appreciate what Jenny does for us, find another blog. We all don’t get the same coupons and we all don’t get the same ads. Jenny isn’t responsible for that nor is she responsible for one’s inability to read a coupon or lack of respect for an employee of CVS.

            • Annoyed

              Silly you are such a bully!!!!!!!!!!!!!

            • Ali

              HAHAHA… Who sounds like a kid?

        • Emily

          Is he perfectly correct in not accepting coupon that is not applicable? Sure. Is he displaying appropriate customer service in the way he communicated? Absolutely not.

      • savinmavin

        Jenny is not saying use the wrong coupon for items she is simply listing all of the Olay product coupons that can be found, she does not indorse coupon fraud. This is why it is so hard for us couponers to get a break. Obeying the rules is just the moral thing to do, remember there will always be another sale and another coupon for the items you are wanting to purchase. We are all adults here and we need to set examples with our honest money saving suggestions and by being curtious to others. God bless and happy savings!

        • Kristin

          I totally agree. I just went to one of Jenny's workshops this week and was very glad to see her talk a little about couponing ethics. I quote from her handbook,” Coupons should be used as they were intended, for the products intended…Make sure you buy the size specified on the coupon; even if it works for other sizes please have integrity and be responsible in your usage.”

          As you mentioned, she is trying to give us all the match ups that could work. It is our responsibility to match them up with the appropriate products.

          Doing this responsibly allows our drugstores to keep offering the deals and us to benefit from those deals. If we hurt our drugstores, we will no longer have the deals.

        • JessL415

          You all need to stop and analyze the term “coupon fraud”…. this is typically used for “fake” coupons… In MY OPINION, the Q's were for the same company (Olay) and if they would scan, they were not “fraudulent”… Now if I had gone in with a coupon for popcorn and been mad they wouldn't take that for some body wash, cool, yell at me Mr. CVS dude…. but this situation? Nah, he was not on point… It was some jerk that barely spoke English having the audacity to raise his voice to me over an attempt on my point that I frankly didn't sit there an analyze, I just went off the scenario Jenny posted. He embarassed the heck out of me and that was wrong!! Heaven forbid I share my experience on here without the middle-school-esque clique women attacking me with their nastiness.

        • jhoran

          It was implied that the 3.00 q could be used for the olay facial cleanser, because for the simple fact that it was listed as .99 after the coupon which reads “Olay facial moisturizer or cleanser instead of “Olay Regenerist facial moisturizer or cleanser”. tipo error!!! Seems to me that less savvy couponers might not catch that if they were not paying attention. I guess the golden rule would be to realize that not all deals and coupons are set in stone.

    • jennaj81

      last week and today at the CVS coupon printer I received a $0.25 on 2 singles serve candies. I thought I would try to see if they would work in conjunction with the $2/2 and $1/2 Mars Easter candy coupons deals above (the free ones) and they did! So there's an extra $0.50 overage for anyone who has those coupons too!
      Also, I did both PF deals and found that the wooden compact for the face powder was included. I was excited about this because my make-up stockpile is big enough for now. So I got the mascara and the compact and after the $6 CVS coupon, (2) $5 manuf. coupons and the (2) $7 ecb's, I had an overage of $13!!! My total was around $80 before coupons and last weeks ecb's, and $27 after. Plus I took home $30 in ecb's! Whoo-hoo!!!

      • Blessed

        What candy deal are talking about above? I got the CVS q too but I don't see nor understand the deal. Help please. Thanks!

        • jennaj81

          I am so sorry! I was sure that it was listed. I’ve looked and looked to find where I saw the deals but can’t. One that I know by heart is: there was a $1/2 Mars Easter candy coupon in the 3/20 paper. With this you can get 2 Snickers eggs which are on sale for 2/$1. The other is a $2/2 Dove, Mars, etc. Easter candy coupon. It was a printable, but I can’t remember where from. If you happen to have it or know where to get it then you can get free M&M’s filled Easter eggs which are on sale for $0.99 each. Again I’m so sorry. Hope this helps.

    • MooMooMaggie

      I just purchased 2 boxes of Clariol Hair Color, 2 tubes of total Colgate toothpaste and one 360 Cologate toothbrush for only 1.86. I had a $5 coupon off of $15 then I had a $3, $1 off of haircolor $1.50 off of toothpaste which was B1G1 and a $1 coupon off of the toothbrush.

    • Jamie

      I didn't get the clean and clear coupons from today, 3/27. Was anyone else missing those?

      • Sillysnicks

        I didn't get them either :+( sad!

      • Danyeln

        They were not in the Montgomery, AL paper either, although we only got 1 Smart Source. I am hoping to have it in the whole inserts I ordered from the clipping service.

      • Amber

        It wasn't in the Augusta Chronicle either. I was bummed, but we usually get Smart Source coupons in the mail once a week too. Sometimes they are a duplicate of Sunday's paper, but most times they are at least a little bit different.

    • Leaz

      Anyone have trouble with the skintimate deal? I tried 2 CVS and the cpn wouldn't scan, they couldn't even put it in manually!

      • courtney s

        I had a problem with it, my cashier pushed it through though because she was like you obviously did buy it.

        • Amyrdh

          same here, had to call a manager, but he did something to make it work.

      • Heather

        Same problem, wouldn't even go through manually. My cashier just gave me .55 instead. =)

      • Slgumm

        Mine wouldn't go through either. The cashier tried to force it through, but it wouldn't let her.

      • Sandra

        Mine just adjusted a different coupon up .55 cents….

      • angiej

        mine just gave me .55 the coupon isnt working I heard if you did a trans with just skin then it would scan

      • Leaz

        Okay CVS couldn't get it figured out but walgreens did. CVS did remember me though when I came in today and said that corporate is working on getting it fixed and that it may be fixed already. So glad they were helpful.

    • Raenjustin

      Picked up Palmolive on sale for $.88, used MF coupon for $.50, purchase price was $.38. I was able to purchase to purchase 3…

      • Mcleodsc

        where did you get coupon? The one in my newspaper today is for 20 oz.

          Mine too!

          • nancy

            There's a .40 off Palmolive in the new Publix book (One store one stop?) add it to the manQ- makes the 20 oz soap .60!

      • karen

        I think it is a better deal at Publix, with the coupon you will get the 25 oz for $1

        • Tammy Keller

          Is there anyway to get it?

          • Isu2014

            You can get them on ebay or from a coupon clipping service.

            • Gkeller5

              OK THANKS

        • Tammy Keller

          ME TOO:)

      • me

        There wasn't a $5.00 coupon issued in the coupon inserts. The company has stated that on their Facebook page.

    • This weeks deals are great! I scanned my card again today and received another $6 Physicians Formula coupon (I had already got one last week) :)

      • Coupongal18

        My stores didn't print those :(
        Where are you? I know all stores are different but I was disappointed I didn't get one :(

        • Robin

          Make sure you scan your card every time you go and keep scanning until it says “No more coupons available today” It will often give you a different coupon.

    • JessL415

      Wow, then the writer of this site is promoting coupon fraud then, since she suggested those coupons be used…. You were really rude with that duck smart-*** comment too…. keep your snarkiness to yourself!

    • JessL415

      That's crap, we are constantly told of match ups for coupons for similar items from the same company that 'will scan' on scenarios here…. It's not a mistake, it's commonplace apparantly….

    • Tammy Keller

      Spend 1 hour trying to find Physician Formula can not find:( And no one will help:( So if you can tell me where to get the coupon it would help me alot!

      • Guest

        it may be regional. I you couldn't find it in your smartsource? or do you mean you can't find in the store???

        • Tammy Keller

          Sorry was not clear:) Smartsource Was it in your?

          • JessicaJ

            It probably was just not in your insert. Not every insert has every coupon. Something that will help is Jenny's post every week of what was actually in the inserts of most cities. If you really want the coupon you can purchase it from a coupon clipping service.

            • Gkeller5

              OK THANKS

      • Isu2014

        I checked in three different stores but I couldn't find the 8 count box of band aids. Anybody else find them? They are included because the ad states 8 count.

      • ce07

        Not sure about stores that take expired coupons but you can always send them oversees to the military, who are able to use expired coupons. Here is a link to information about it…Coupons For the Troops

      • Stacey0216

        No, unless you have a raincheck

      $1 off dove men care deodorant cvs coupon printed for me today! woo hoo! works great with the axe/dove deal

    • Sue Mckellar

      The Physician's Formula coupon wasn't in my insert and neither was the Axe. Probably will still do the PF Mascara deal.

      • Robin

        Check for the coupons on ebay. I just got 10 of the $5 off coupons for $2 shipped. I only need 2 but since I'll save/make $10 using them it's worth it (I have the $6 off cvs coupon to use with them).

        • Leticiag30

          Can u recommned a good seller on ebay?

          • sara

            I have purchased many coupons from ebay. Here are a few rules to go by:

            Top rated sellers always ship fast and have many other buyers who have dealt with them

            Stick with someone who has 99 percent feedback and higher and more than 100 transactions

            If you stick with both of these rules you should be good to go! And if something unfortunate does happen you can file a claim with paypal and your money will be refunded.

        • tina

          i did the same the seller photo copied the coupon so mine isnt worth the paper thats its printed on i hope u have better luck then i had

    • Lissa

      Why can't I find the $2 off dove men + care deodorant printable coupon?

      Anyone having any luck with the trail size band aids? I went to 3 stores today and couldn't find any.

      • Meldsilva1

        Try looking at the end-caps. Sometimes there is a long narrow strip of trial size items that dangles from the corner at the end of the aisle. That was the case when I was looking for the Theraflu samples. I just asked the cashier and she went and grabbed it.

      • Melanie

        Also, it may not even be at the end of the band-aid aisle, and might be found in a seemingly unrelated section of the store.

      • kristi

        I got the little first aid kit ( in plastic container) for .99 and it counts toward the deal

        • good to know! I asked about those and the assistant manager said they didn’t count. YAY! Did you use coupons too?

        • Liz

          Were you able to use the $2/2 bandaid coupon with those???

        • jennifer

          Were you able to use the $2/2 and 50 cent bandaid coupons on those first aid kits?

        • Busycarebear

          I bought 6 first aid kits and one Johnson & Johnson bandage wrap. The wrap is the only one that counted so I’ve got to go back and get one more thing.

      • Last time I bought them they were located in the travel/trial section.

      • Liz

        I am having the same problem!!! I went to two different CVS stores and neither of them had them in the travel/trial size section nor with the bandaids. I asked and no one knew anything about them in the stores. sigh.

    • courtney s

      so happy about my shopping trip, a $3 off axe printed from the kiosk for me today. in all 3 transactions my subtotal was 0. Just paid tax, and have 13 ecb left

    • Belinda

      Is this normal? I used B0G0 coupons on Axe shower gel and Clean & Clear body wash. Axe was on sale for 3.79, C&C on sale for 2.99.
      The register charged me the sale price for both, but credited me the FULL price – 5.79 for the Axe and 6.29 for the C&C. I was shocked that the bill was so low and even pointed out to the checker that I didn't think that was correct! She told me it was fine.
      This is not typical though, is it? I feel like I cheated, but I did point out that I thought it was incorrect!

      • Stacey0216

        You probably scanned your card last or after she scanned that Item. The computer tells you the full price for the item if its done last. Most cashiers look for the sales price manually.

        • I scanned my card first and also got this. I have had inconsistent luck with such things. Some cashiers make a big effort to look up the “real” price while others just run it through at the max allowed (even if that is more than the “regular” retail price). I think it is not a big deal for them to do that because they will get the full price back from Axe or whoever if they submit it at that price.

      • I had that happen too. She just shrugged and said it was no big deal!

    • Mlaurie406

      Does anyone know how much you have to spend to get the $7 ECB for pfc?? I know there are some items under $7, do they qualify?

        To me it looked like you could buy any product. I bought an eye shadow for $7.29 since it was the only thing I needed.

      • me

        ANY item. I bought the concealer stick for $4.69.

    • Alisa

      Bricks coupon on Neutrogena site for 2.00 on suncare or sunless product. It looks like it will work with the ECB deal. You can print two coupons.

    • Alisa

      Bandaids(and other bandage items) are still an eligible expense under the Flexible Spending Account (FSA) rules. If you have a FSA either pay for these items as a stand alone purchase and use the debit card they give you or submit the receipt for reimbursement. Many other items are still eligible purchases such as sunblock (over 30 spf), hand sanitizer, and first aid kits.

    • Jen

      Went to CVS yesterday and did both of the PF deals, got an eyeshadow for one and then the mascara. The mascara didn't give my $7ECB, but the manager said “we will push it through this time, but we aren't supposed to since those deals are “one” deal”. In the paper they are clearly two separate offers, so I don't have a clue why they said that nor why it didn't print in the first place.

      • Lilreddiver

        It is two different offers, on is offer # 11450780 (the mascara) and the other is #1141352…the manager was wrong…but he did the right thing.

      • Amandamark02

        The same thing happened to me because I bought the wrong mascara. I bought the one pictured in the ad. That is NOT the correct one. It is the Organic Wear JUMBO. So I returned it and bought the right one and it printed my ECB's.

    • Fancyschmancydesigns

      i cant find the 5.oo off coupon in my smart source for phys make up….. where is it??

      • me

        There wasn't a $5.00 coupon. The company has stated that on their Facebook page.

    • jmichaelp

      Would the “buy $12 in Household Products, get $4 ECB” work by buying one fresh Brush Starter, one toilet cleaning gel & 1-2 other items (whatever it takes to reach $12) with $1 printable coupons in conjunction with using the coupon “Free Scrubbing Bubbles Fresh Brush starter or refill WYB Toilet Cleaning gel” to get the stuff for close to free?

      • Burroughs85

        I wondered this as well….my newspaper did not have the free multisurface wyb pledge:(

    • racecitymj

      FREEBIE DEAL!!
      BIC 10 pk. Silky Touch Razors $3.99 on sale B1G1 FREE
      (use 2/$2.00 off coupons from 3/27 SS)=BOTH FREE!!
      I just ordered 20 coupons from ebay…I won`t need razors for years!!! (over $80 worth FREE)

      • Guest

        Someone else might need some razors, so please don't wipe out the stock with all those coupons.

        • Julie

          I agree “Guest”. There is a difference between couponing and hoarding.

        • Guesst

          Most of us live in areas where there are multiple CVS', don't harass people for doing what we all here to do: get lots of cheap/free stuff!!!!

          • Guest

            Sorry to have offended anyone; I certainly didn't mean to come across as harassing, just a gentle reminder to be considerate of others. (We aren't “all” here to get “lots” of cheap/free stuff; I, for one, follow this site so that I can be a better steward of the financial blessing that God has given my family. Jenny's hard work every week helps me spot great ways to save some money–I'm not interested in going berserk & getting a ton of free stuff all at once…a little at a time is sufficient for me. I live in an area where there doesn't seem to be a lot of couponers & no extreme couponers that I have detected, so it would be fairly easy to “go overboard” with a large # of multiple coupons, but I don't feel or see a need to so.)

            • It is a bit frustrating when you can't get your item that day, but rain checks are easy peasy at CVS and never expire. I just say grab one and move on.

      • w120jmk

        The ad that I have says they are Buy one Get one 50%.

        • racecitymj

          Opps, just noticed that. O`well! Still an awsome deal @ $1.00 ea.!

      • Guest37

        Talk about being greedy…who needs that many razors? Seriously…just buy what you need for immediate needs, and perhaps a few months beyond. You sound like a hoarder.

        • racecitymj

          Oh sorry, I thought that CVS & BIC were in the business of selling things….its just 20 packs….& yes I do have 2 CVS stores to purchuse from. Get off my case! I`m sure my town will just go into melt down if there are no BIC razors to buy for a day….come on!

          • melissa

            I dont see any reason for all the comments. Yes deals come and go, and its frustrating if the shelf is clear but most of these stores only stock 5 of anything at a time and shelves clear off fast anyway, (even without couponers).

            There is no certainties in couponing if its an item/brand you use, wont spoil, and you have the storage space… I see no problem with stocking up when the deal is on. the next time the coupons may not be as good. Thats a personal choice.

            Good for you for seeing a deal you want and planning for it. Dont let anyone make you feel bad… We couponers get enough of that at the stores. dont turn on each other when shes doing something perfectly legal and that we havent all done when its something we really want.

            If your store is out get a rain check already. at least at cvs its the same ECB the next week.

            When my dad lost his income they were happy with all the OVERSTOCK they had from me learning how to coupon and teaching them… Life is uncertain, plan ahead.

      • Gracie680

        They are B1 Get one 50% NOT BOGO. And not a single CVS in NE Fl has a bottle of Clean and Clear, and they don't know when they will either. This smells like the Purex dealie, They didn't restock that for two weeks or more…

    • Carolinachristianacademy

      We didn't have the Colgate q's~ so i had to work my own deal, as i just got back into cvs-ing and had no ECB either! Still pretty new at this one so I did this:

      Transaction 1~
      (4) clean and clear body wash
      (2) 2-packs colgate manual toothbrushes (which were under the same ECB deal as the singles, and at the same price!)

      Paid in this order~
      (2) B1G1F Clean and Clear bodywash
      (2) $2 off one Clean and Clear product
      Then gave Extracare Card~
      Total was $0.56 plus $4 ECB back!

      Transaction 2~
      2 Axe bodywashes
      1 Dove + Men deodorant
      1 Axe Deodorant

      Paid in this order~
      1 B1G1F Axe
      $1 off Axe deodorant
      $1 off Dove + Men deodorant
      Then gave extracare card~
      $4 ECB
      Total due was $4.89, got $5 ECB back!

      I'm not sure you are supposed to wait till last for your Extracare card, but I did so the cashier put in the before sale price on the B1G1F items, making my totals much less than I had anticipated :) She seemed as new to this as me and gave me no hard time, it was a brand new location!

      • KonnieTeaches

        Thanks! I'm about to hit CVS for the first time since I started couponing and this helps a lot! You rock!

    • Jendoyal

      I've been to two different CVS's in my area…Atlanta, GA…and they are not able to accept the .55 off Skintimate coupon. :(

      • ajb

        Just had the same problem! However, Walgreens accepts them with their sale just fine!

        • Carolina Coupon Mom

          I had the same problem today at two different CVS's. The manager gave me cash for the coupon as she was unable to even enter it manually. Odd!

          • Wrafb_martins

            same situation in warner robins, ga but no help from cashier or manager at russell pkwy. had to leave without purchasing item. very frustrating . gas cost too much to make another trip . i don't understand why they can't override something so you could use the coupon!!!!!!!!!!

          • Wrab_martins

            had the same situation at warner robins, ga russell pkwy. no help from cashier or manager. i left without item. very frustrating, gas cost too much to make another trip. i told them i would go to walgreens.

      • Myracash66

        I tried using mine at CVS Sat night and they could not get it to work. manager could not even get it to work. Took it to Wal-Greens and had they same problem. Not sure what was going on with that thing!

      • Holiness07

        mine said they would have to key it in for 56 cents…something weird was going on with that coupon today!

      • Nita Royal

        Tried mine at 2 stores also, and they beeped. Cashiers put them through, since the same thing happened to the person in front of me.

      • msivory20

        Same here, quite annoying! And of course I had the “very by the book” cashier who wouldn't push it through for me. Maybe Walgreens will?

      • luv2shop

        Same thing happened to me. Cashier said it happened b4 and asked if I would like to speak to the mgr. I said yes. Mgr came over and started with the 'standard line' without looking up. When she finally looked up, she realized it was me… her next door neighbor! She then figured out a 'way' to accept it.

      • Ema6763

        When I went to CVS yesterday I had the same problem but they said for some reason they had to enter it in for 56 cents and then it took it.

      • Sherryberry7570

    • Mcleodsc

      I do not know if this has been posted on here yet-I do not have time to read thru all the threads. I printed out 50cents off Stove Top Stuffing coupons and used on the 77cents Sales. I paid 27 cents each plus tax for two.

    • Julie

      I am really glad that Jenny mentioned previously about scanning your card multiple times for store coupons. Most of the time the machine at my store says it currently isn't giving out coupons. But today was a nice score. I went in for Allegra (since good grief is allergy season in full bloom here!) and scanned my card and it popped out a $5.00 off Allegra store coupon. Scanned it again and a $4.00 off Allegra coupon spit out. A third time popped out candy coupons (eh). Between those two store Allegra coupons, the 2 $4.00 off mnf coupons I already had and getting $5.00 extra bucks back, it was a good day at CVS!

    • jhoran

      Just wanted to comment on the 5.00 pdf Physician's Formula coupon. I bought 4 items on the 40% sale and 2 on the 7.00 4.00ebc sale. The retail value was 80.34 .. I paid 14.46. I was not aware of any 5.00 q, but there were 3.00 ivc on the boxes and I had the 1.00 q which brought my total coupons on each item to 4.00 … then by purchasing so many items, I received 10.00 from my beauty club rewards…..so what I'm trying to say is that there was no need for everyone to go crazy about the 5.00p pdf
      when they could have done just as well without it.

    • Jamie

      Question: Are the coupons that come out of the magic red box store coupons or manu coupons?

      • These are store coupons.

      • Caitlin

        Store :-)

      • April

        they are store coupons

      • Jamie

        Thank you! Just checking!

    • Victoria

      I love this website! I got $55 of stuff for $20 + I got $8 back! So I really spent $12 for 2 Axe Body Washes, 2 Clean & Clear Body Washes, 6 pack of Dove soap & 2 Tresemme Mousses! Sweet!!

    • Amber

      Can someone please explain to me about B1G1 coupons? I thought that if you had a B1G1 coupon, you could not use another coupon along with it since the coupon applies to both items. I must be misunderstanding given the different scenarios many people are listing here. Also, how does a B1G1 coupon work if there is a B1G1 sale?

      • Mlm82lmm04

        I'm new at this and found reading the coupon policies for cvs and rite aid very helpful. Also I think jenny has info bout it somewhere on this site.

        • Amber

          Thank you!

      • Linden

        At drugstores, it is a true B1G1. Not like grocery stores where they ring up half price each. So, the B1G1 coupon makes one free, but the other one can still have a coupon applied to it. Also, if there is a B1G1 sale and you pair it with a B1G1 coupon, then you get both for free. One is free because of the sale, the other is free because of your coupon. It doesn't sound like it would be that way, but I have done it a ton, and that's how it works. I actually learned about it at one of Jenny's couponing classes.

        • Amber

          Thanks so much!!

    • Lbertschy

      What Zip code are you using to print the coupon for Maybelline New York mascara? I haven't been able to find it ….thanks

    • Mjb52403

      i also noticed that TUMS are on sale in their flyer…. does anyone know where I can find a coupon for them? Seems like I saw one not too long ago… Thanks for the help!

      • Lbertschy

        go to target.com and there is a coupon for 1.00 off….

      • Haley

        Went in the store today and got a $5 off 2 Tums from the coupon machine. Pair that with a $1/2 Tums manufacturers coupon in RP 1/30 and they are .79 a piece!

      • Liz

        I went in the store today too, and the $5 off 2 Tums printed out on my receipt. And, I have two $1.00 of any Tums coupons, so pair those 2 with the store coupon, and that's $7 off total!!! My 2 bottles of Tums were $7.58 plus tax. With my Q's I only paid $.58 plus tax for both!!!

        I printed the $1 off one Tums about 3 days ago from a link on a post Jenny did.

      • I had a coupon for Tums print at the Coupon Kiosk

    • newtothis:)

      I have a question about the “printable coupons”. I can NEVER get my printer to work? Is there a trick to this? Also – when you print them out, can you print out as many as you like (say like 5 for five of the same item) or is there a limit? Thanks so much – I am new to the couponing thing! I also just started getting the Sunday paper so it seems like I might have to get it for about a month to be able to get all these deals because a lot of the super savings are from weeks/ months prior to the current one. Thanks everyone!

      • Myracash66

        I don't know of any tricks to making coupon prints. Just make sure to follow all directions when printing. Sometimes you have to download things to get them to print. Limit of 2 coupons per computer ( not per email address but per computer) . It does take a while to get a good assortment of coupons but always look for Jenny's getting started deals. Hope this helps!

      • Jen

        Are you being prompted to download a coupon printer? Most of the time you have to download something to make the coupons work.
        I would say it takes about 4-6 weeks to get where you have a good stockpile of coupons and you have the ones you need for the deals. The sale cycles are usually about 6-12 weeks so you'll start to see the same stuff go on sale (with coupons usually released before hand). I would recommend seeing if friends or family that aren't using their coupons pass them along to you.

      • june

        By any chance do you have a program called “scansoft paperport?” It came with my all in one brother printer. I had a really hard time printing coupons when I first got the printer. I kept getting error messages saying I needed to change the settings on my printer so it would not keep a copy of the print. I checked the box over and over and the settings would not stick. On a fluke I tried printing using the paperport instead of the brother printer and it worked. It was the only way I could print coupons for almost a year. Then something happened to the program and now it doesn't work. You might just need to change your printer settings. Try anything that you can undo if it doesn't work.

    • Sheila

      I don't understand transaction 1 under “my plan” how do you get 2- 7.00 ecb and 1- 4.00 I understand 1- 7.00 for p.formula and 1-4.00 for pledge where does the other 7.00 ecb come from?

      • Amandamark02

        Both the PF Mascara and Concealer will generate a $7 ECB.

        • Just a heads up…my ECB for the general cosmetic didn't print and the cashier tried to tell me that I would only get one ECB from Physican's Formula. I told her there were two deals and she tried it anyway assuming I was wrong. Well thankfully I was right! I got both $7 ECB's. :)

          • Kristy

            Mine didn't print both either. Wished I would have questioned bc I thought it was 2 deals as well.

    • Anita Blackwell

      I am pretty new to CVS-ing. Went by my local store in Spartanburg this evening, scanned my card, only got 2 coupons: $1 off CVS Brand Hand Sanitizer, and $.25 off @ Snickers, etc. So where is the $6 Physicians Formula store coupon? Are they gone? Plz help!

      • Isu2014

        You won't get every coupon and i believe they printed last week. Make sure you scan your card until the screen says “no more coupons available.”

        • Anita Blackwell

          Thank you! Didn't know I could keep scanning my card. I scanned it once last week, but got a similar result as today… now I know :)

      Physicians Formula $7.49
      2 cans COS tuna @ .59 each
      2 Snicker bars @ .99 each
      Colgate toothbrush 2.75

      Used the following coupons:

      $5 Physicians Formula
      $1 Colgate Toothbrush
      $0.25 2 Snickers, Peanut M&M's or Milky Way bars
      7 ECB's from previous weeks

      OOP was $2.36

      Received 9 ECB's ($7 and $2)

      I wanted more tuna, but I grabbed the last two cans in stock. I'll request a rain check the next time I go (probably tomorrow).

      Did anyone get the Phy. formula coupon in the ss for 3/20?

        I went to my local Target and there was B1G1 peelies on several Physicians Formula products. I then took them over CVS and got an excellent deal!

        • Guest

          So you just pulled coupons off of products in one store & took them to another store to use them? NOT COOL, same as pulling coupon inserts from newspapers without purchasing the newspaper.

          • Carolina Coupon Mom

            Guest – clearly you have misunderstood my post. There were B1G1 stickies on the 6 products I purchased. I used two on the four products I purchased and was left with two – one coupon per two products. Took the remaining two over to CVS (they were manufacturer coupons) and used them and got the CVS deal. If that's wrong, please tell me how.

            • Guest

              Oh, sorry! You didn't mention actually purchasing anything @ Target in your original post, so I guess I did misunderstand. Nothing at all wrong with how you actually did it…congrats on your great deals!!!

    • tobytimmy

      Don't let your 3/30 coupons go to waste. I loved taking mine to my local stores and scattering them among the apporoprite item.. One young mom was happy to get coupons. Being generous was fulfilling!!!! I also shared many coupons with my CVS cashiers…. they were so happy… now they can experience the deal… :o) so SHARE THE LOVE!!!

    • Ica84

      Softsoap was not B1G1 at my store, also did the band-aid thing and they took my coupons off first, so my total was below $10 and I got no extrabucks :(

        I thought extra care bucks was total before coupons.

        There is a $1 coupon in the WAGS diabetes and you book. It has Walgreens on it but is a manu. coupon, used one at my CVS on Sunday no problem, no beep went right through. You can get these at the pharmacy in Walgreens. HTH

      Therma Care Heat Wrap $5.99 for one. According to my add there was a -1.00 coupon in the newspaper (which i didn't get grrr!) however if you go to the Therma Care online site there is a 3.00 coupon available to print( i saw it on tv last night and it's available). I don't know if you can buy it with both coupons or not but if you can it's 1.99 for therma care or 2.99 for therma care. Good luck on this little tid bit!

      FYI: Aleve 40+ count is on sale for $4.99 at CVS this week. Use a $2 coupon found on coupon.com and only pay $2.99!

    • Kristi

      Ok, the single serve candy bars are B2G1 Free and I have a B2G1 coupon, how much will I be spending on these 3 candy bars? I know if you have a B1G1 sale and a B1G1 coupon, both are free? Thanks!

      • I think CVS has “true” BOGO for these sorts of deals, so you will be spending the cost of one candy bar. That being said, you may do a little bit better as sometimes cashiers will put in up to the full value of the coupon rather than the 'real' in-store price.

      • tina

        idk what the price will be but you'll buy 1 and get 2 free

    • faith

      can someone tell me what else is on the skintimate coupon. I'm having trouble locating it.

    • Havepetswilltravel

      Went to get the Triscuit/Cheez-It/Wheat Thins deal and the 2 Smart Source coupons I had were for the 6oz. or larger packages and the crackers on sale are in 4 oz. packages. Wasn't able to use any coupons since the 2 CVS stores I went to didn't even have Triscuits to use the printable coupons for. :(

    • new2couponing

      If I do the colgate toothbrush deal as described. Do I have to come back another day to use the ecb on the next toothbrush. How does that work? Completely new to this lol

      • jennifer

        Nope, you can do the 2nd transaction right after the first with the ECB from the first and it will give you another ECB.

    • Lisamarieonssi

      HELP anyone – my cvs receipt states a Claritin deal – buy 2 – 20 + get a 10 free. I have already bought one 20 + box (receipt states 1 needed to get the 10 count deal free). Does anyone know if I get the 20 + and 10 count at the same time will the 10 count be free or is it a coupon it will print and I have to get the free 10 count later? I am asking b/c of the spend 20 get 5 ecb. Of course the 24 count is 19 – still needing one dollar for ecb but enough to get the free 10 count. But the 10 count if rung up would put me over the $20 mark for the 5 ecb.

      I had a horrible experience today at the CVS in Mt. Dora (441 & Eudora). This was the very first bad experience at a CVS for me. First I tried to buy the pledge deal and use the $1 coupon for one and the B1G1 coupon for the other, and the cashier immediately got the manager and the manager tried to tell me that each coupon said one per purchase and therefore she could only do one coupon. I told her I had already purchased the deal at another CVS and I was making 4 purchases to which she said then they would have to be rung up separately. When I said fine, she backed down and said she would try it and see if the register would take it–it did! Then I tried the Olay facials deal with the $2/1 Facial Cleanser coupon and buy one facial cleanser get a free soap or body wash coupon, and you would have thought I was trying to steal from them! First she tried to tell me I couldn't use the $2/1 because I didn't get the item on the picture. I tried to explain that sometimes there are variations on items and they don't always picture all of them so she said she would try it and it worked. Then I opted for the bar soap instead of the body wash for the B1G1 coupon, and she didn't want to take it because there was more than one bar of soap on the pkg. First Olay doesn't sell single soap bars that I know of and if they do, CVS doesn't sell them. Second the B1G1 coupon was for up to $4.99 and both the bar soap and the body wash were way over 4.99 so I was going to pay the difference anyway. After telling her that both of the other stores took them but each only had one left so I couldn't get the rest there, she said that it was only because they are staffed with teenagers who don't really care about their jobs and its just a paycheck for them and they take everything, and that they would most likely be losing their jobs over it. Actually one of the people who checked me out at the other store was a store manager and she took them with no problem! I then told her I would buy the body wash instead which was way more ($7.79) and then return it and use that to buy the bar soap and she tried to ring it up and said the coupon would only give me $3.79 for it so I ended up leaving without my olay because she wouldn't override it. Anyway, I'm really sorry for the long post and for venting! I was just frustrated and you guys are the only ones who can truly understand my frustration. I mainly just wanted to give a heads up to those in the Mount Dora/Eustis area to stay away from that CVS!!!

      • Chappyk

        Yes, the people at the front of that store have been scrutinizing every single coupon I give them lately. I found that if I do my transaction at the pharmacy, they give me less problems. The newer CVS off 44 in Sorrento is much better.

        • mom26boys

          Thank you Chappyk!!! I forgot about that location! I will bypass this CVS and head over to that one next time! The one in Tavares on 19 is great also! :)

      • Mysterious_Mentalist

        CVS has been lately behaving unfriendly across the board; their service is going down the drain

    • Brencoup

      red box at cvs is printing out $4 off $20 purchase today good for three days only.

      • Liz

        mine printed the same thing but then it said “expires april 6th” so i don't know what 3 days it means?? ha

    • Shcoopersmith

      This always confuses me…If candy bars are B2G1 on sale and I have B2G1 coupons…how many do I get?

      • Amysbrock

        I did this a few weeks ago with the M&Ms. You get 4 per coupon. Basically you by 2 get 2 free.

      • Buy 3, and only pay for 1. The store gives you a free bag, the coupon gives you a free bag so you only pay .99 for 3 bags

      • Mysterious_Mentalist

        The easy way to understand is that manuf Q can be used irrespective of store sales. For this scenario, forget about store sale for the free one. Follow the coupon–scan three; coupon will take off one price, and the register will take off one price due to store sale, and you end up with price of one payable

    • tina

      any1 know how much the bic soleil razors are?

      • Mel

        Don't know cvs but they were 6.99 at my walgreens and 4.99 at my target.

    • Wpoovey

      Sorry if someone else posted this. I couldn’t find a $5 off coupon for Physicians Formula because they are gone (limited number). But I did find a rebate on the Jumbo Mascara, new product that offers $7 in ECB. Here is the link. You can try it for free. http://www.physiciansformula.com/en-us/rebates/rebate.html
      So you will acutally make $7 on this deal!

      • Candace

        You have to have the Try Me Free coupon that was attached to your product to receive the rebate.

    • Angelas001

      I have a $5/any Align product that I don't need, can't stand to let it go to waste, especially with it on sale this week. I also have a $7/any Crest 3D Whitestrips Pro Affects. Who would like them?

    • Carolina Coupon Mom

      Deal Alert!! Nexcare bandages have a rebate for the full price of the item (up to $3.99). There are three different types of band-aids and you can submit one rebate per type of band-aid per address. My Wags has them for $3.49. Make sure you have the cashier give you a rebate receipt. You'll need to submit the rebate receipt with the prices circled and the UPC. Free band-aids for summer time. Sweet deal!

    • Griffingirl69

      I just have to vent about my cvs! I'm very patient, not easily irritated but the last 3 times I have been in my local cvs I have had problems during checkout! I have been going there for years and this has only started happening the past month. All my extra bucks do not print out & they told me yesterday that I couldn't use the skintimate coupon because it was saying that it was not in the system~give back to customer. I called the 800 number last time and told them my bucks were not printing and they gave me and extra $3 ecb (a 2.50 extra didn't print at the store). Yesterday my ecb on the bandaides and toothbrush did not print out and I had to get her to do it manually. Has anyone else had this problem? If so what did you do? I'm thinking about switching to another cvs which is a little farther from my home..do you think it's just this store?

      • kori

        i saw that others were having the same problem with the skintimate q. i just went to cvs and had the same problem, but told the cashier that people we getting it to work (from on here) if they punched it in at $.56. she did that and it worked.

      • Sara

        On the Skintimate, I had to get one of the scents (either the Rasberry Rain or the light pink one) that was listed in the sale paper. It wouldn't let me use it on the orange one.

    • Catseye

      I just had to install the coupon printer (bricks) and when I tried to print the coupons it said I had already printed them???? Help!

      • biskit0323

        If you actually haven't printed the coupon, then that just means it's out of prints. Some companies only allow a X amount of coupons to print, so when that many are printed but everyone, it will give that same message to anyone that tries to print it after that # is reached.

    • Rstonia

      Woohoo!!!! I just hit the jackpot at my CVS this morning. I just went in for the Kraft BBQ sauce they had on sale and a few other things and I noticed they had a table full of Kotex, Always & Stayfree pads on clearance. I bought several packages for $.80 each and bought my daughter some Midol for $1.50!!!! Before coupons and sale prices total was $124.17 – oop was $29.19 for a total savings of $94.98 or 76%!!!! (if my math is correct!) Now, I call that a good day!!!!

    • Binker269

      Where are the 8ct bandaids? I can't seem to locate them at the store.

      • Tiff715

        try to travel size area

    • Gracie680

      There is not a single bottle of the Clean and Clear in my area (north FL) and I am getting tired of this and CVS!! They seem to clear out on Saturday night, even tho the cashier swears she hasn't seen a single bottle go through her register… I got tired of it and took my coupons to Walgreens. They have C&C for 25% off, makes it 4.49 a bottle. I used the BOGO coupon and the $2 printable, and got 4 bottles for 6.48 (with tax). Done and done!

      • kori

        Don't forget the rain checks though I don't know when those q's expired. I did the CVS deal today on the Clean and Clear and fortunately the had a few on the shelf. But that drives me nuts when it's all cleared out… like the other half of my list today.

    • Ztotheoya

      Another deal (maybe it's regional, Im in VA) but L'oreal Feria is 2/7 here and you can use the coupon from RP 2/20 for 5 off any 2 L'oreal hair products = 1 dollar each :D

      • Ztotheoya

        OOPS nvm guys its 2/12.99 making it 3.99 each with 5 dollar off hair color…

    • Alethaskid1

      I have one cashier at my local cvs that always gives me problems. She tries to prevent me from using my mqs and is just this side of hateful. Not anything I can complain about, but right there on the edge. Grrrr, why do some people like making other people crazy?

      • Mysterious_Mentalist

        Please state exact scenario and objection so we could evaluate and possibly correct you and the cashier

    • Ok, today I bought 2 dove deo for men and used 2, 2 dollar off coupons, and an axe spray and shampoo used a 1 dollar off for each, and a 2 ecb. my total was .42 cents short of getting the 5 ecb. tomorrow I am going to a different cvs, can I return the stuff there or does it have to be a different store.. I am grouchy about the .42 cents short. :(

      • Jennifer

        CVS usually tracks the weekly deals on your card, so if you buy one more product that falls into this category, it should print your ECB.

        • I want to return it all and hopefully the other one will have the axe body wash in stock and redo the deal.. I did the other deal because there was no body wash.. if there was the deal would have worked better.

          • Cayoung_8

            do you have more coupons because they will refund your money but you won't get back your coupons to use at the other store to do the deals over again so if you don't have more coupons to start all over with on the deal then I would just buy the one more item.

      • Bamasaver

        As long as you have a receipt, I would think you could return it at any CVS. However, I don't have any idea how they'll treat the 2ecb you used on the purchase.

      • Mysterious_Mentalist

        Manuf Qs , extrabucks are refunded in the form of moneycard/store credit.

    • Guest37

      I HAVE AN IMPORTANT QUESTION:

      Does CVS tax extra care bucks in all states? I live in NY, and I used a $7 ECB…on my CRT, it stated that I was taxed 70 cents. Do all states tax the extra care bucks, or is it just NY? Thank you in advance!

      • Tara C

        They have just changed this in FL recently. I don't think they changed our laws, but maybe the way stores were defining things. So, where I used to be able to walk out of CVS paying 10 cents for a huge bag of stuff, I am now having to pay a few dollars out of pocket because of sales tax. They no longer seem to be discounting the sales tax for items when they are paid for by ECBs.

        • Slgumm

          That happened to me today. My total was $6.07 so I tried to pay with a $5 ecb, a $1 ecb, and give .07 cents in coins, but they wouldn't let me. I was only allowed to use the $5 and then I had to pay $1.07 cash. The cashier said something about having to pay the tax on what I bought.

      • Mysterious_Mentalist

        Extrabucks, RR, UP rewards are all considered manufacturers coupons and are reimbursed face value to the retailer on your behalf (just as normal manuf Qs are reimbursed and are taxable in NY). Thus, there is money exchangte taking places in a trade. And that money exchange is taxable in almost all states. I read somewhere that only three states, including TX, do not charge sales tax if you pay with manuf Q (and therefore with EXtrabucks, or RR) etc. NY sales tax is 8.875%. So you should have been charged approx. 63 cents (not 70) on $7 trade even if you paid with Extrabucks.

        Only exception is when you use extrabucks from greentag or one that is manually printed with no manuf coding would usually reduce the tax because the system would count them as “discount;” those extrabucks can not be traced to any manuf and are thus not reimbursed to CVS, and thus no actual green money transfer is taking place. btw, I posted this somewhere here weeks ago in detail how this works.

    • shops2much

      Does CVS let you purchase items the night prior to the sale and return them and repurchase them during the sale event? I am asking this because I work near a CVS but am not able to go in the morning , but am able to go at night. Every time I go in with a list of items and coupons….they have ZERO left ….what's a girl to do?

      • Amy

        CVS's that are not 24 hour stores start Sunday's sale Saturday night. Prices will ring up.

      • Zarate06

        Might be easier for you to just get a raincheck?

        • shops2much

          I have done the rain check thing…but if there is a ECB that goes along with the deal, I doubt I would get it.

          • tygirl13

            You will absolutely get the ECBs! There is a place on the rain check for the employee to write the ECB amount in. I always cut the deal out of the ad and staple it to the rain check. That way there is no question what the ad was. I have gotten ECBs on rain checks tons of times. HTH.

    • Bleski

      Hi! New at this… can anyone explain this to me:
      I have a B1G1 – so the items ring up as 2 (right) then…I have a $2 off coupon…how can I use a coupon on the one that is free? Oh boy…I am so confused!

      • Courtney s

        the b1g1 is for the free item and the $2 off is for the one your paying for.

        • Jrwilliams29

          From what I get, because you are required to get both items to get the CVS deal they let you apply two coupons as well.

        • Bleski

          Thank you so much for taking the time to reply…I know I should “get” this by now, but somedays I sit here and my mind just fails me :) Again, thank you!

    • 4andahalfofus

      Have all CVS stores stopped taking printable coupons, or just certain ones? I was surprised when I went in yesterday to buy items and was told CVS no longer accepts printable coupons. I asked if this was all CVS stores and the cashier said yes, due to fraudulent coupons.

      • Fallaya

        Not at my CVS…

      • Chele17rene

        NO IT'S NOT!!! Call corp headquarters. Tell the them that you were told that and what store and they should fix it!!! Look on reciept for store number! As long as your coupon has watermarks,exp.date, for the right product and a scanable barcode they should take it!!!
        I had a store manager tell me the same awhile back and I called headquarters.I now give my business to a different CVS because of that! And I drive right past THAT CVS to get to the coupon friendly CVS!!! Hope this helps

      • Deanna

        The cvs.com website has printable coupons linked at the top right of the site, both cvs & mfg. If the company website WANTS you to print out coupons, it would definately be a conflict for the store to tell you they won’t accept them… :) next time tell them to look at their own website, lol. But definitely call corporate as well.

    • guest

      if you subscribe to CVS email… they are sending out $5.00 off your next purchase of $25 or more. this deal is good thru April 4th.

      • Jana

        I have a question about that…Is the $5.00 off the total price before manufacturer coupons? Or do they have to ring up all your coupons first, and then the total still needs to be $25.00 to apply the $5 off?

        • kori

          Give them the $5 off first. I'm not sure if it matters, as long as your total was $25 to begin with. But I always give them those 1st so there isn't a problem. I can't wait to see the add for next week and hope there is some good stuff to use this q on!

          • Jana

            Thank you!

        • ChrissyPunkin

          It's before coupons, but CVS coupons reduce the tax owed so I use them first.

    • Jason

      Can anyone plz tell me if I can use a Walgreens rain check for Buy one get one free item and also use the BOGO manufacturers coupon. This is the first time I tried to use a rain check and the cashier and the manager told me that I can't use both. Thanks.

      • ChrissyPunkin

        You should be able to. Can you try another store?

    • Sheila

      okay on my receipt it says colgate buy 1 get 2 eb quanity toward this reward 2 quanity needed to earn reward 1 so can i buy i more toothbrush and get 2 more ebs?

      • savinmavin

        This is a month long deal, last week I purchased 2 colgate tooth paste and this week I purchased one tooth paste and one tooth brush. The receipt last week said 2 left on this deal now my receipt says limit reached. So yes you should be able to purchase another toothbrush. HTH

    • Kimwilliams_99

      i have a coupon for b1g1 free axe shower gel and i also have $1 off coupon since i will be getting 2 items can i use both.

      • Jen

        you can use both

    • Burroughs85

      I was wondering if any of you have gotten the 5 ECB from the Band Aid deal, and if so what you purchased. I bought two boxes of the children's not realizing they were cheaper if bought two. Long story short, I thought I'd reached the 10 and I haven't. My store has none of the 8 ct packages, but was wondering if the Johnson and Johnson red cross first aid to go kit was included on the deal. I bought a few of those for the kids' diaper bags, but wasn't sure if they counted as part of the 10 or not. My online account isn't showing how much I”ve purchased toward the reward. Thanks so much!

    • racecitymj

      The Clean & Clear Bodywash B1G1 coupon takes off $5.99, so when you also use the $2 coupon your total ends up being -$1.55!!! “Money Maker”

      • Bamasaver

        Big sigh…neither of my local stores has ANY of the Clean & Clear BW…guess I'll pick up rainchecks tomorrow. Nor does either of them carry the Pledge wipes/spray or the Scrubbing Bubbles gel discs that I wanted. Not a really good CVS week for me this week; maybe next week will work out better!

      • Blessed

        Can anyone else varify that you can actually use a B1G1 q AND a regular manufacturer? I've wanted to try this but it just doesn't seem like they'd let you use both since the first q covers both of them.

        • tygirl13

          An email that I received from CVS (aka their “unofficial” coupon policy) addresses this exact issue and they said that it is fine. I have done it before. Always give the $ off coupon and then the B1G1. You can print a copy of the “unofficial coupon policy” from the link on the top right hand corner. I emailed corporate requesting their coupon policy and they sent me the same thing – that way when the cashier asks “where did you get this?” I can say “corporate emailed it to me”, rather than “well…you see I got it off this blog….” ;-)
          HTH

    • jb30520

      what are the CVS coupon printing things i keep seeing noted here?

      • Prsol

        When you visit the store, scan your CVS card at the little red machine first (the same machine where you can also check prices) . It will automatically print a couple of coupons (sometimes more!) for different things. Sometimes you get lame coupons like: 25¢ off chocolate. Sometimes you get great deals like “$6 off Physicians Formula, printing at CVS coupon center”

        Because these are considered “store coupons” you can stack them with manufacturer's and make the most out of your savings! ;-)

    • Bkny63

      got a great deal on the Tangled DVD. That $5 coupon off the Disney website works on the regular DVD package. Even though it says it's for the DVD/Blu Ray combo. DVD will end up being $6.99. CVS has it for $19.99. Used the $5 coupon. Got back $3ECB. Will mail off the $5 Success Rice rebate.

      • guest

        the coupon states off 4 disc blu ray combo..how does it work on the regular dvd?

        • Bkny63

          I read on another coupon blog that it works with the regular DVD. I took a chance and it scanned with no problem.

      • Zarate06

        Just because it will work doesn't mean you should. Unless the coupon printed and said off DVD or DVD/Blu Ray combo?

        • Bkny63

          Well I did and I got a great deal.

    • Sheila

      Okay yesterday I posted that on my receipt it said the colgate toothbrush buy1 get 2 eb quantity toward reward 2 quantity needed to earn reward 1 so I went back and bought one more and got 2 eb now it says quantity toward 3 quantity needed. Thought I would let you no in case someone needs more toothbrushes

    • Megster77

      Does CVS start next weeks deals at 4 or 6 on saturday or does it depend on the store?

    • Burroughs85

      Does anyone know if the small J&J first aid kits count towards the BandAid rewards since it states J&J red cross products?

    • shops2much

      Trying to get comfortable with CVS and Walgreens shopping…it's very confusing! But I did enjoy finding a great deal on Arizona Teas, and Juices…66 cents each…with is 22 cents less than at Kroger. Maybe this isn't something everyone would call a deal, but I liked it.

    • Sdanorth

      For the first time I got everything on my CVS deal list – by procrastinating. I mentioned it to the clerk, who said “Yeah, the end of the week is better since we don't get our truck until a couple days after the sales change.” So my laziness has paid off! No more Sunday morning CVS trips for me!
