    • Delores

      I recently received a free sample in the mail for huggies diapers, and some others did as well. There are coupons for $3 off a pack of diapers, so the huggies deal is pretty good with those coupons.

    • There was a Zephryhills coupon in last Sunday’s insert for I believe $1 off cant remember off the top of my head, but I know there was a coupon…

    • Carly

      New at this… are ECBs considered coupons? The coupons you get when you ask about autofil say they cannot be combined with other CVS coupons. Just wondering if I can use my ECBs and $4 off $20 at the same time! I’m thinking not:(

      • Jenny

        Carly,

        Extra Care bucks are play money. They are not coupons. You can use any coupons you like with that $4 off $20 other than another $4 off $20. So use manufacturer coupons and ECB’s and the coupon and really save!

    • -$5 off Coppertone Nutrashield printable (makes it $1.99)

      Printed with no barcode and huge black lines on it! Did anybody else have a problem?

    • Beth

      My Coppertone coupon did print, but the quality is so poor is looks like a fake. I’m just hoping they accept it!

    • Nydia

      I am going to try shopping on saturday evening this week, because my store is always already cleaned out early sunday morning, I have a question, will the computer be set up with the sales for the Sun-Tues only sales already on Saturday evening, or will I have to wait until Sun morning for those? Thanks.

    • hi!

      where can i get the $4 off $20 and $3 off $15?

      thanks,
      amber

    • Ln

      Jenny, I have a question about the sharpie coupon. It says “limit one coupon per purchase per visit.” Does this mean one per item and I can buy several, or does this mean one per transaction?

      • Jenny

        Ln,

        I does mean one per transaction. Sorry I still can’t print anything at my house so I didn’t know I’ll add that above.

    • MommyCFO

      Wouldn’t you have to buy two huggies diapers in the last scenario to get the $4 ECB?

    • Ln

      MommyCFO,

      You only have to buy 2 packs total. The first pack is in the first trans. and the second pack is in the second trans. Your ECB’s will print after you buy that second pack. The number of packs you buy is kept up with on your card and once you hit the requirement (even if you didn’t buy them all in one transaction) your ECB’s will print after the number needed to buy is reached. Hope that helps!

    • val

      Does anyone know if you have to buy 2 of the B1G1 deals at CVS to get the sale price? I have 3 Colgate coupons and only want to buy 3 tubes. Will the 3rd tube ring 1/2 price or full price and then I am expected to buy the 4th tube? Thanks.

      • Jenny

        Val,

        At all drugstores you do have to get 2 to get the sale price. The first rings up full price and the second rings up free.

    • Ln

      I believe you have to buy 2 to get the sale price.

    • Amber,

      There are several ways you can get the $/$$ coupons. Right now if you go to the CVS Pharmacy and ask about their Readyfill program they will give you a coupon booklet that has some of these coupons inside (assuming your store has them and has not ran out yet).

      Another way is through email. Occasionally CVS will send out emails with these coupons. Then you simply print it out and take it with you to the store.

      I think you can also get them by scanning your card inside the store, if your store has a card scanner. I haven’t found a store in my area that has one, so I’ve never actually been able to try it out.

      Hope this helps.

    • kelli

      I’m kind of happy that this is a slow week… I can take a week off form the horrible service at my CVS. I do have piles of EBCs though. Hopefully there will be more “free” deals next week.

    • D.W.

      I asked the pharmacy about their readyfill program yesterday and asked if I could have the coupon book. The told me “NO” because I had to actually sign up for the program. She said the sign makes it sound like you just have to ask, but no you actually have to sign up for the program! Bummer!! Maybe I’ll try another CVS and see what they say…

    • Erin

      Do you get a free gift every week or one in the month? does anyone know?

    • Looks slow indeed… I may snag the Revlon and a couple of other cheapie items just so I can condense my $10+ in ECBs (like $1.98, $4, etc) into ONE for next week.

    • Bobbie

      Please tell me where you get the $3. off for $15. makeup purchase.
      Thanks for any help.

    • Bobbie

      Erin, I don’t really know but I wouldn’t think so. Maybe we’ll see this weekend.

    • Angela

      Erin, The fine print reads limit 1 coupon per person or ExtraCare card. So it looks like it’s only one free item for the month.

    • D.W.,

      I didn’t sign up for ReadyFill but they just handed me the coupon book when I asked if I could have one. In the ad coming out this Sunday, the small print says *just for asking about ReadyFill while supplies last. It does not say you have to sign up for the program.

      If I were you, I would try another CVS if there is one close by. It definitely can’t hurt to try.

    • Lauren

      Nydia #7
      On Saturday nights at CVS, you will get the sale prices for the Sun-Tues sales but the extra bucks for those sales will not print (unless your cashier is feeling generous and wants to force the ECBs)

    • Janet

      Wow CVS has us on a roll with all those freebies every week and now all they are offering is some make-up product. I won’t be taking advantage of that this week free or not. I don’t even know what it is or do I want to. LOL Hopefully there will be some better deals at the other stores this week. Stay cool all!

    • Hilary

      Val, I asked if I had to buy 2 of something to get the 2/X price, the cashier said no, and she was right. It rang up as half the advertised price, so it might be the same with BOGO. Worth asking though.

    • lynn

      jenny how are you surviving with out being able to print ? so sorry to hear that i was down for a week with printer issues and boy was that hard gl

    • I have not sign up for ReadyFill, however I went to three stores in the Birmingham area and neither would give me a coupon book! All three stated I need to sign up or go where I fill my prescriptions.
      Where is the customer service???

    • Amanda

      does cvs carry the huggies pure & natural? There is a $3 q in the smart source coupon link on southern savers.

    • joy

      Does anyone know if you have to buy EITHER 2 pull-ups or 2 diapers-or can you get one of each and still get the ECBs?

    • Susan

      For those of you having trouble getting the coupon books, call corporate and complain! My husband works in the pharmacy at CVS and they are supposed to be handing these out when you ask about the program, you do not have to sign up.

    • Kay

      I have looked through all of my SS 7/12 inserts and I don’t see any Nexxus hair product coupons. Is that a typo? Or did it just not come in my area?

    • Tracy

      I’m so excited about my Easy Up (pampers training pants) purchase at CVS! I needed pull ups in a pinch , tonight (ran totally out so I didn’t think I would get a good deal), I decided to go to CVS and use my $25 gift card I received from transferring a prescription. I found Pampers brand Easy Ups were on sale 2 packages for $20 and you get $5 ECB’s back. I used a $4 off $20 coupon from easyfill packet, then used two $1.50 off Easy Ups coupon, my total was $13, I used $8 ECBs from last week so I owed $5 and paid for that with my $25 gift card, and got $5 back on my ECBs for next week!

    • Wende

      Jenny,

      I have a concern about the highlighter coupon. It’s been reported here that it not legit – but a copy someone made. See the Bagel Bites on the same page where it tells you to look at the other side for more info – but there is no other side.

      Please give me your thoughts? I used it today for Bagel Bites BEFORE I read this post tonight. I want to return the money to the store if it’s not a good coupon.

      Here it says okay – http://www.moneysavingmom.com/money_saving_mom/2009/08/target-and-cvs-free-sharpie-accent-highlighters.html

      here it says not okay –
      http://www.commonsensewithmoney.com/2009/08/tips-printable-coupons-pdf-format/

      • Jenny

        Wende,

        I haven’t heard anything about these coupons bad but I’ll look into it. They were posted by cookie magazine, which is a good magazine that many get so I trust the source more than just a random blog. I’ll let you know though.

    • Wende

      Thanks Jenny for checking into it.

    • Amy

      Lizel,

      I tried several times to print the $5.00 coupon, all I was getting were the expiration date and a border around the page. I then was told that my print limit had been reached.

    • Debbie

      Kay,
      Most likely your area did not have it. I use one from pretty far away from here b/c it is closer to being like mine than the one that comes out 50 miles from me. That is how different they are. I copy it into Word and then print it. Then I flip thru and make changes and change it in Word. Then I have a list for my area. They are never the same though. I always just look at what Jenny post and then look to see if that was one of “my” Q’s or not…I don’t get excited until I look on “my” list! ha!

    • Kay

      Debbie, thats a good idea! I’m so overwhelmed with trying to keep everything organized-that might help me a lot!

    • Carly

      I have a couple of ?’s… does anyone know if you can buy 2 pullups and 2 huggies diapers and get the ECBs for both? Also I have 2 different CVS cards… do you have to use the card that you got your ECBs with when you use your ECBs? (that is a confusing ?)

    • Wende

      Carly,

      I can help with one question –

      Yes, the ECB bucks that you get with one card can not be used with another ECB card is what my CVS has told me. I have my moms to use when she is out of town to get her deals and a few times I have mixed up ECB and it has beeped and been refused in the register. I have now signed us both up on line so our name appears at the top and it’s easy to keep track of the ECB.

    • Kim

      My CVS actually just has the Easy Fill coupon books laying out on the counter. You don’t even have to ask just walk up and grab one!

    • Wende

      Jenny –

      I found the answer to my question about the coupons. I can find a link directly on their website under FAQ so I’d say it’s okay! Thanks

      http://schoolyearseve.cookiemag.com/faq.asp

    • Susan

      At CVS.com, I just printed a $5.00 off $25.00 coupon. Take a short quiz about ready-fill then print. Expires 8/22/2009

    • Joy

      #35
      Jenny, I also read commonsensewithmoney’s post and have to lean towards these coupons not being legit. When I printed these, the bagel bites coupon said *See reverse side for details and obviously there isn’t an other side. Just want to make sure!

    • Wende

      I have sent an email to P&G to see if the use of the Tide on the School Year’s Eve is legit. I have been told P&G will NEVER allow use of coupons as PDF’s and if that is true – then these are not legit. I will let you all know what I find out. It may be a few days since it’s the weekend.

    • lynn

      susan # 43 thanks for the heads up om the 5 off 25 coupon
      Wendy joy Jenny any one with info as to if those coupons are legit please please let us know asap thanks

    • Tracy

      Hi all- I wanted to confirm that ECB will print at the non-24 hour stores after 6pm for items not on a Sun-Tues sale?? I asked a CVS employee today and she said they will never print before midnight. Please let me know!!!! THANKS!

    • Elaine

      -$5 off Coppertone Nutrashield printable (makes it $1.99)

      I printed the coupon in color and it looks fine. When I did the b/w version, it doesn’t look “real.”

    • Megan

      Amanda,
      I’m hoping they have Huggies Pure and Natural, but probably not. They’re not online and I don’t remember seeing them in the store. There was also a $3 coupon for them in the paper several weeks ago.

    • Brandy

      To all those moms out there with kids in diapers…I’ve been getting such great deals on huggies lately that I have been buying a lot of them. Well I have finally started opening them and my daughter is in size 5. It’s time to start potty training but she just refuses to do it. Anyway, I started opening the size 5 packages and found coupons on the inside of the packages for $3 off Pull-Ups. So be careful when opening your diapers and always check for a coupon on the inside b/c there was no mention of it on the outside of the package. These coupons will come in handy for the Pull-Ups deal. I am already stocking up for when she decides she’s ready.

    • Wende

      Here is one response someone else got from Tide – I am still awaiting my response, but now WILL NOT go & get the highlighters I’d planned to today.

      RESPONSE:

      Thanks for contacting Tide.

      Thanks for the headsup on the Tide coupon (.pdf file). You are correct. We don’t offer these types of coupons due to the potential for fraud. If you found these coupons on the Internet, you may want to return to the site where they were located to discuss this issue. I’m also sharing the information you provided us with our Promotions Manager and Security Department.

      Since you enjoy using coupons, you might want to check out the following site to see when our next P&G brandSAVER newspaper insert is available. Each month this insert contains valid P&G coupons for a variety of our products: http://www.brandsaver.com/cr

    • $5 ECB wyb $15 CVS Brand or Caliber School Supplies Limit 1
      (great to use any school supplies rain checks you have!!)
      Will they give you this ECB deal and the rain check ECB’s too?

    • Michelle

      How come I am treated like a criminal at my CVS? My manager will check out every single coupon and not let you have anything free. She says other couponers choose not to come when she is working. I told her I am spending money in her store and it is all legitimate. It is amazing how the companies want to market and play sale games on the consumer but when the consumer gets smart with coupons, they treat THE CONSUMER like a crook.

    • Stacy

      Hi Jenny-
      Thanks so much for ALL you do!

      Quick question-if you shop on Sat. night, will your ECBs print? Or will they just print the next time you use your card? Thanks!

    • Wende

      Stacy,
      The ECB on Saturday night depend on the store. I was in PTC, GA store and asked WHY they were always out of everythind on sale for the Sun – Tues deal at 8am Sunday morning. I was told they transfer EVERYTHING on sale over Saturday evening at 6pm so even the ECB for the 3 day sale will print. BUT in Newnan – also close to me they apparently do not since they are a 24 hour store. The manager told me to start shopping at 6pm Saturday BUT I am 25 minutes away and shop before church on Sunday morning to save gas.

      Ask your specific store you go to when they start the sale for the 3 day items so it will print ECB.

    • Wendy

      Can someone help me clarify… where it says “Buy This, Get This” for the Tostitos and Salsa con Queso and get a free True North snack, do you have to buy 2 of the items to get the free True North? I’m confused because it shows two items. Or can you just buy one bag of Tostitos and get the free item?
      Also I have manufacturers coupons for $1.50 off True North snacks. Can I use one even though the item is free?

    • Jenni

      I am a newbie and finding myself completely addicted to this in a short amount of time–thanks so much for making it easy to understand!!!

      I am running into an occasional problem, though–why do I sometimes NOT have the coupons listed in my inserts?? For example, I do not have a Revlon coupon in my SS from 7/19 nor do I have a Colgate Total coupon in my SS from 7/12. I live in the St. Louis area–does anyone know what’s up??

      Thanks!

      Jenni

    • Wendy

      Oh and the $1.50 off any one bag of True North nut snacks exp 10/31/09 coupons were from the Publix “Marathon” coupon booklets.
      If you don’t have that there are $1.00/1 IP coupons here http://www.truenorthsnacks.com/

    • Amanda

      Hey everyone. I just went to CVS and they will honor the sale price on saturday evening but no longer honor the ECB’s until sunday morning. The manager said this was a corporate thing so they refunded me my money!

    • Mommycfo

      Will they take the -$3 q’s for pure & natural huggies no matter which package I get at cvs? That would make for an awesome trip with my $5 off $25. How strict are they with $/$$ expirations? My 3/15 expired the 1st and I missed it!!

    • Kellyann

      Just letting you all know that if you try to use that “up to $30 off” coupon for the Contour meter some stores will not give you the ECB’s that come with it or you have to pay full price and no coupon is allowed. That’s what happened at our Main Street Summerville store a week or so ago. They ended up letting me get one with one $5 ECB, but I was not allowed to purchase the limit of 2. Go figure!

    • Brian

      Hi Everyone,

      I just went to my CVS and did the Nexxus deal ($20 worth of Nexxus and get $10 ECB). The cheapest items at my store were 5.1 fl. oz. tubes of shampoo for $5.29 and Nexxus combs for $4.99. I bought 3 of the shampoo and 1 comb and used 4 of the $3.00 off Nexxus hair product coupons SS 7/12. The coupon beeped on the comb but nice cashier put it in manually. Just a heads up for anyone thinking about getting the combs, it is probably going to depend on your store if you can use the coupon on the comb or not.

    • Tracy

      My CVS told me last week that they will not give rainchecks for items that would be free, has anyone else run into this? A different CVS in town did give me a raincheck for a free item so I’m not sure what the official policy is.

    • Mary H.

      Michelle #54…

      Watch out what school supplies you purchase for the 5 ECB wyb $15 of school supplies. IT is listed AS “SELECTED” CVS(Caliber). I got stuck with a few items not “SELECTED”.

      Brian #64

      You got lucky because the COUPON I have says “EXCLUDES 5.1 oz. size and trial sizes”. IT’s a no go on the 5.1 oz. tubes for me… the next lowest priced item was 9.99

    • Jenni

      Just got back from CVS–it’s Saturday night and the ECBs printed just fine. I was annoyed, though, because the Sharpie highlighters were already gone!!! Oh well, raincheck.

    • I am still learning the drugstores, can someone help me answer this question? I have ECBs for CVS. Can I use the $5 off $25 with my ECBs? Thanks so much!

    • Brittany

      I just got (2) packs of huggies pull_ups, (6)packs of highlighters, and (1) pack of m&m’s for $.01!! I love CVS! Thanks Jenny!

    • Val

      Angela – You can use the $5 off coupon with your ECB. Extra Care Bucks work like play money.

    • Val

      I have heard that CVS takes competitors coupons. I have my regular manufacture $2 Huggies Coupons and then I have a grocery store coupon for $1.50 of each Huggies. Has anyone else used both together and been able to stack coupons at CVS?

    • Bethany

      Val,

      CVS only takes competitor Rx (Prescription) Coupons. For instance “get a $25 Rite Aid gift card when you transfer your Rx to Rite-Aid”. CVS will honor that, by giving you a $25 CVS gift card instead.

      CVS does NOT accept competitor coupons for regular products.

      You can, however, stack CVS store coupons (the ones that print on your receipt or from the CVS coupon machines, etc.) with manu. coupons.

      Hope that helps!

    • Helen

      Does anyone know if there is anything we can do with our expired coupons. I thought I read something about sending them to people in the military, but I can’t remember where I read it. If someone can share where to send to and address, I would appreciate it. Thanks!

    • Beth

      Helen, scroll back up to the top of the page. Look on the right side and you will see a link for Coupons for Troops.

    • Debra

      Can someone please tell me where I can find the 50 cent coupon for the huggies wet wipes?

      Thank You,
      Debra

    • Jill

      Jenny. I did the diaper deal and the only ECB’s that I got were in the second transaction for $4.00. What did I do wrong that I didn’t get the $9.99 in the first transaction?

    • Mariah

      Richmond HIll GA CVS did not have Zephyrshills water on sale. Instead it was Poland Springs at that price with ECB.

      I only had a coupon for Z water. Still came out pretty good, but wish I had known to look for PS coupon….

    • Shiloh Kennedy

      Warning! The printable coupon above for $5 off $25 purchase… can not be used until tomorrow (8/10/09). I went early this AM and had my whole trip planned out and the register would not except it and the screen said valid 8/10-8/22. Although, nothing on the coupon states that…but either way, they would not take it.

    • Shiloh Kennedy

      On a plus note, the Coppertone Nutrashield add (buy 1 8.99, get 2 EC) shows for a 3oz. bottle… the deal also applies for the 12oz bottle… same price. Don’t forget to print the $5 off coupon !!

    • AIRWICK DEAL IS NOT LISTED HERE, BUT IT’S $5.99 AT CVS AND YOU SHOULD HAVE A COUPON FOR $6 OFF. so it’s a freebie

    • Alicia

      Just got back from CVS and I think it was my best trip yet. I got $105 worth of stuff for $2.24 OOP and $10 on a CVS giftcard that I got from a new prescription. I came in the store with $9 in ECB and left with $8. What I thought was going to be a slow week turned into an awesome one. Boy that is a great feeling!!!

      Thanks Jenny!

    • Amy,

      I called Coppertone and they are sending me a coupon!

    • misti

      Val and Bethany-it is up to the individual store manager whether to take competitor coupons-the one in my town DOES accept them-even grocery store coupons like publix! So ask your store!

    • kelli

      Michelle (#55) – it sounds like your shopping in my store (in blacksburg, va)… whenever the manager is there, she gives me dirty looks and sometimes follows me around the store. When I use coupons, she reads every word on them before scanning them. It’s so annoying. She and another person who works there also say rude things to me and my fiance. Ones the cashier said something about how we couldn’t both have cards because it’s only one per household and I told him that we have different households (I even offered to show them our license, which have different addresses of them) and he made some comment about how all these Asian coupons will come in and use multiple cards per household. I want to know how they know if people live together… a male and a female shopping together does not equal living together. It’s usually more likely (at least in my COLLEGE town) for 2 females shopping together to be living together. It’s total crap. I’m about to stop giving CVS my money, great deals or not.

    • kelli

      dallas, TX (#78) – where is the $6 coupon from? I’d love to get one of these but can’t find the coupon anywhere…

    • Parker

      kelli- the only $6 coupon I see is for the Air Wick I-Motion in todays inserts but the one on sale at CVS is the Fresh Matic so I don’t think it will work

    • Thanks Val! I will make a trip today.

    • Amanda

      I didn’t know where to post this but I bought two papers today and neither of them have 2 smart sources in them. I bought them at Walgreens and when I arrived the sales lady was fixing the stacks because someone had come in and bought 10 papers and she also stated that the woman riffled through them. Do you think they were taken?

    • kelli

      I ran in to CVS today to ask about the ReadyFill Program coupons. I specifically asked if they still had the coupons. They woman behind the counter said “yes, do you have any questions about the program?” I asked what it was and let her tell me really quickly, then she handed me a pamphlet about it and the coupon book. She also handed a coupon book to my fiance. This is probably the best service I’ve had in my store in months.

    • Carly

      FYI- In case some people don’t have huggies coupons you can find them on coupons.com zip 30253.

    • Amanda

      Did anyone else only find one smart source insert today?

    • Shiloh Kennedy

      Over all … good trip.

      Walked in with 6 ECBS…
      (2) Huggies Diapers 19.98
      (1) Copperstone Nutrashield 9oz. 8.99
      (1) Sharpie Highlighters 4 pack .99
      – (1) $5 off $25 or more
      – (2) $2.00 off Huggies
      – (1) $5.00 off Nutrashield
      – (1) $1.00 off Sharpie highlighters (free)
      – $6 ECBS
      OOP $8.97
      ECB back : $6 (like paying 2.97 total)

    • Shiloh Kennedy

      THEN…. I rolled that $6 ECB into the following purchase…

      (1) Cover Girl Lash Blast Mascara 8.99
      (1) Cover Girl Exact Eye shadow 5.49
      -(1) 2.50 off two CG products
      – $6 ECBS
      OOP $ 5.98
      ECB back: $2.00 (like paying 3.98 for both)

    • lynn

      the cvs i shop at was awsome about the coupon books .. so dont give up>

    • kelli

      Amanda (#91) – I only got 1 ss and 1 rp today.

    • lynn

      did you all know you can buy your news papers with ecb

    • bhumi

      Cvs store on pelham n batesville don’t have the $3/$15 coupon available. Ne1 care to tell me where can u get it in Greenville sc?

    • Meagan

      IF at the bottom of my receipt it says:
      Quantity toward this reward 1
      Quantity needed to earn reward 1
      Does that mean I can do the deal again?
      It was the Huggies deal and my ECBs didn’t print and I had to go back and have them manually printed. I’d love to be able to do it again!
      The Revlon deal says offer limit reached.

    • JennGamble

      Can you combine a $$ off coupon with a “buy one get one free” coupon? I tried doing this last week at CVS with the Herbal Essence shampoo and conditioner and was told it was one or the other.

      Thanks,
      Jenn

    • val

      I felt that my shopping today was successful. I bought the Revlon make up with the $9.99 back in ECB even though I didn’t need it because it made my total out of pocket expense less after 3 transactions. I came home though and used it and it actually worked great. Total out of pocket today was $8.81 for:

      2 Packs Huggies Pull Ups
      2 Old Spice Deodorants
      6 Tubes Colgate Toothpaste
      1 Cover Girl Lipstick
      1 Neutrogena Mascara
      1 Revlon Mineral Mousse
      1 Bic Soliel Razor
      1 Sharpie Highlighter
      1 Coppertone Sunscreen
      1 40 ct. Envelopes

      I bought this spread out over 3 transactions and started with 4 ECB.
      My store let me use Foodlion Coupons for $1.50 of Huggies in conjunction with my $3.00 off Huggies Coupons. Also Publix has in the green advantage ad $2.00 of Cover Girl Products that I used in conjunction with a $1.00 manufacture coupon.
      I purchase my make up together so I could use the $4 off coupon from the Ready Fill coupon book. Then I rolled those ECB’s to pay for the Huggies and Deodorant. I also had a $5 off Rite Aid coupon that they accepted for that purchase. Last purchase was Bic Razor, Highlighters, 6 Toothpastes, Sunscreen, and envelopes (filler item). I again used a $5 off coupon from Rite Aid and A LOT of Manufacture coupons. Very good experience and I have 5 ECB’s for next week.

    • Sandra E

      Meagan,
      I had to have ECBs manually printed the other week for the Kashi deal because I bought three boxes of TLC bars, but apparently one of them was different and she said it should have been part of the deal so they gave me the ECBs.
      Then my receipt said I needed to buy more to get the deal, so I bought more and got the ECBs again…
      I think if they do it manually, the computer doesn’t realize it’s been done for that deal.
      Is this ripping off CVS? or is it just getting the best of their computers?

    • Bre

      To all the mom asking about the $3.00 q’s for huggies pure & natural, I’m in TN and have never had a problem using them with regular huggies I visit several CVS locations and all have accepted them. Today I did the 7up and the huggies deal used (2) $3.00 off pure and natural, $5 off $25, and my ECBs from last week. OOP $3.89 and got back $7.00ECBS.

      Good Luck with the $3.00 coupons!

    • MarySC

      I totally forgot that I had a $4 off $20 coupon and it expired yesterday. I took it to 2 stores today, and both clerks said they would take it (the first store didn’t have the size of Huggies that I needed). The clerk said she’d probably have to enter the coupon manually but it scanned with no problem!! I got 2 packs of Huggies (using the free after ECBs Revlon makeup as a filler to get over $20) for a total cost of $6.50 (cost $18, one $2 coupon, one $1.50 coupon, the $4 off $20 coupon, and the $4 in ECBs). Quite the deal!!!!

    • KELLI, the coupon does says i motion and I didn’t notice until I got there. But it went righ through, they didn’t had to scan it manually.
      Target also has it on sale for $5.99
      so you can try either. It’s a smart source q

    • NEXUS DEAL WORKED IN DALLAS, I BOUGHT 2 BRUSHES AT 6.99 AND 2 COMBS AT 4.99 my coupons had to be entered manually though, but they didn’t ask questions or anything.

    • Betsy

      Tried to do the Nexxus hairbrush deal tonight, but the register would not accept the coupon. Even checked with the manager, but she wouldn’t put it through stating it was for shampoo/condition products. Will try corporate in the morning, but have a feeling that the hairbrushes won’t work:(

      Anyone else have success with this deal??

    • Tracie

      Amanda #61-

      I bought a sale item yesterday (Saturday) after 6:00 and the ECB’s printed automatically. It was not a 3 day sale item.

    • nancy

      i only got one ss and one rp. i checked a couple of papers before I finally gave up and just bought one. I had a good time with the tax free weekend I had my children in toe and (Babysitter Next time) People kept giving me Q at almost every STORE I went to. I kept thinking either they are having mercy or I was beaming I am a couponer. hahaha no joke one nice man gave me @ 5 off 25 at staple good tile sept. another lady at jc penny had an extra coupon she could not use and was going to expire. Cool right. then at jc pennys the cashier gave me back the Q and said i could use it all day. ok then at kohl’s I got an extra 40% off. and then I was given on my way out another 10% off next time.

    • nancy

      I am just sharing because you all will understand my excitement

    • KC

      If you are using the rain checks for Calliber school items it will not show the “quantity toward reward” on the bottom of the receipt for the $5 ECB on $15.00 calliber purchase. I had to get the shift supervisor to manually print the $5.00 ECB. He was soo nice!!!

    • Amanda (#91) and Kelli (#95) – I got one SS, one RP, and a special General Mills coupon insert (not sure which one put that out). But someone also double stuffed my paper so I got a duplicate RP as well.

    • .Jennifer

      Ok peeps that get emails from CVS… If you get them at a different email address go and check b/c I just got emailed a coupon for $5/$25 good only on Wednesday. Don’t want anyone to miss it!

    • I didn’t see it in the list, so I’m sorry if I’m just repeating a deal.
      My ad has select candy “Buy $15 worth, get 5 ECB.” Mars singles are included at 2/$1. There’s a coupon in 7/26 RP for $1 off 2 Snickers, 3 Musketeers, or Milky Way Singles.
      Is my math right on this?

      Buy:
      32 bars at .50 each ($16)
      -16 ($1 off) coupons
      =Free candy bars plus receive 5 ECB

    • kelli

      KC (#110) – maybe they weren’t qualifying items? it doesn’t make sense that they ECBs wouldn’t print out because you were using rain checks… the system doesn’t know if you’re using rain checks. The cashier has to manually print them out for you after your transaction. I don’t know, maybe I’m wrong. I don’t have enough rain checks for school supplies to find out.

      Julie (#111) – LUCKY you!!! I wish that someone would double stuff my paper. If anything, I’m usually missing something.

    • kelli

      Something random that I noticed that I haven’t read yet. The Abs chocolate bar that you get a free coupon for counts towards the spend $15 on candy get $5 ECBs. I thought that this might help some people out.

    • Jennifer

      Wendy #58-just so went to CVS and purchased just 1 of the tostitos queso dip to get the free bag of tn pistachio chips. After I left I looked at my receipt and I was charged for the chips.

      My question is since I used ECB and only paid $1.53 OOP. Once I go back to return the tn pistachio chips and buy a bag of the tostito chips wont I loose out on my ECB?

    • Stephanie

      I know this has been asked a million times but why the heck am I not getting 4 off 20s or anything in my email?? I signed up at the start of summer (over 2 months) and I have been getting cvs.com coupons but NOTHING for in store. This is ridiculous. Am I missing something??

    • Tiffani

      AirWick Ultra i-Motion starter kits are on sale at CVS for $5.99 and there’s a $6 off coupon in this past sunday’s paper, making it free.

      Also, I spent $15 on $65 worth of product yesterday.

    • kelli

      Stephanie (#117) – My fiance isn’t getting any coupons at all in his email and he filled out the email thing on memorial day weekend (that’s when we started CVSing). I called them at one point and they had the email address entered wrong and they actually issued him $4 ECBs to print off the next time bought something to make up for the fact that he hadn’t gotten his $4 off of $20 for signing up but even after “fixing” the problem, he’s still not getting emails. I called last weekend because he had a problem with ECBs printing out (which they issued) but when I asked about the email thing, the woman on the phone couldn’t figure out why he wasn’t getting them. His email address is entered right in their system and she even said that one of the coupons that was sent had been printed, which is totally weird because when he searches his email, there aren’t ANY emails from CVS, not even in spam. I wonder if changing the email address might work? I have no idea…

      If anyone knows a solution to this problem, I’d love to hear it!

    • Shay957

      I love CVS! I thought I was saving money with coupons before, but now I see I really had no idea what I was doing back then. I am a stay at home mom and I love the fact that I am making money at cvs. I have only been cvsing for two week, so I hope as I learn more about the whole process I will save even more.

    • kelli

      this is my master plan… I’m going tomorrow because they get a truck tomorrow and hopefully they’ll be all stocked up.

      (1) Revlon Colorstay Mineral Mousse
      (1) Blink Tears (rain check from last week)
      (1) AirWick Ultra i-Motion starter kit
      (2) Sharpie Highlighters
      – $5 off $25
      – (1) $1 off any Revlon Cosmetic Product
      – (1) $1.50 off Blink Tears
      – (1) $6 off AirWick starter kit
      – (2) $1 off sharpie
      – $10 ECBs

      = $.45 oop (+ about $1.25 in tax – I haven’t quite figured out how tax works with coupons and ECBs yet)

      and I’ll get $17.98 ($9.99, $7.99) in ECBs back

      Does anyone know if $24.96 is enough to use the $5 off $25 coupon? or will I need to buy the second pack of sharpies to make it work?

    • Jenny

      I found a hidden deal!!!!!

      I have had a few BOGO sierra mist Q’s and I didn’t notice till now that every time I buy 2, I get 1 ecb. It says for buying pepsi. So I guess you get 1 ecb wyb 2 20 oz!

    • Haley

      I am irate!!! BAD BAD day at CVS: I washed my $12 worth of ECBs in my jeans pocket!! $$ down the drain! The people at the front counter said to call 1800SHOPCVS, but this was NO help whatsoever, so that $$ is gone. :(

    • Jennifer

      Haley,
      I would call CVS customer service, they can see that you haven’t used the ECB and they can set it up to print them the next time your card is scanned. Just explain to them what happened and they should be able to fix.

    • kelli

      Haley – I agree with Jennifer. You should call yourself. Every time I’ve called with a problem they’ve been super nice and fixed it for me. I hope it works out for you!

    • Dale

      Definitely call customer service. My husband accidentally threw some of mine away on vacation, and CVS reissued them.

    • Erin

      I just don’t do as well at CVS as some of y’all do. The Cover Girl deal did not work for me at all today bc the cheapest items were $8 or $9 so I skipped that. I ended up spending about $10, got $2 ECBs back and left with paper towels and vitamins that I needed, highlighters, foundation, and 2 tubes of toothpaste for stockpiling. Oh – at the Ellijay, GA store some of the Colgate Total is on closeout for $1.10 – so it was actually cheaper than the BOGO deal. I paid .45 for 2.

    • lynn

      to those of you who have more than one card and having trouble getting 4 off of 20 ect ect make sure each card has a seperate phone number and a seperate email acount your card are linked to phone number and email so you can only have one per hope this helps

    • Katie

      For those of you who want to do the Revlon Deal, there is a coupon in this month’s In Style for $2 off of any Revlon Product. If you happen to have the magazine,be sure to look for it, as you can work it into a possible money maker. I used it yesterday with my plan.

    • Debra

      I have a question, I’m still learning about the cvs extra care bucks and need some help. This is my question I printed out the cvs coupon for the 5.00 off the purchase of 25.00, can this be combined with manufacturers coupons? Any help would be appreciated.

      Thank you,
      Debra

    • ET

      Debra, yes the $5/$25 coupon can be used with manu. Q’s, but make sure you give them the $5/$25 coupon first, otherwise your other coupons may bring your total down below $25 and then you wouldn’t be able to use that coupon.

    • Debra

      HI, ET

      I seen your response to my question and thanks for your help.

    • Rachel

      That’s one reason I love CVS! You can use $/$$, then hand them manufacturer coupons, CVS coupons for the same stuff, and then ECBs on top of all that! I spent something like $19 OOP around 6 or 7 months ago and got back $21 in ECBs. I had my entire deal worked out with a $20/$100 CVS coupon I had, and the entire cart was full of $180 worth of merchandise (value before sales, coupons, etc.), so I was thrilled! I have been rolling ECBs ever since with NO OOP!!! Full disclosure: I got a gift card for $25 from a new perscription a few months ago that I use for the little amounts I don’t want to lose on ECBs (like 43 cents here, 6 cents there for tax or whatever), and still have $9 left!

      Every time I get a $/$$ CVS coupon, I take it as a personal challenge to spend that much. I also take advantage of as many MMs that I can! I have been as high as $100 ECBs, then I used most of them on the GPS Navigation for Dummys – $130 value for $80. I used ECBs to pay for the entire purchase, then got $10 ECBs back = BEST FREE DEAL EVER!. I have gotten hundreds of dollars of merchandise from them just trading in my coupons and rolling ECBs for their FREE stuff! It’s like Monopoly Money on Sterroids!! LOL!!

      Sorry for the long post, but I am telling you all this to encourage you to KEEP TRYING! If you get bad service, try a different store if there is one around or take a break for a week or two. If you are new to the “CVS Game,” give yourself time, take a breath, make a plan, and go for it!

    • Melissa

      I just purchased the candy bars that are on sale 2/$1 and used a coupon from RP 7-26 save $1 on any 2. I purchased 30 candy bars for free and made the $5 in bucks.

    • Jackie

      I don’t think I have seen this deal posted. CVS has Hershey’s kisses 2 for $6. If you purchase $15 you get $5 ECB. there is a CVS coupon book near register that has a $1.00 coupon for Hershey kisses. 5 bags @ $3 each ($15) less five $1 coupons (down to $10) and get $5 ECB. My deal was a little better than that though. i had raincheck on Pepsi at 4 for $12. Got 5 kisses and 4 12pk mt dew. used $5 off $25, $5 mfg q’s, $8 ECB bringing down to $9.

    • lynn

      rachel wtg right now i am at 108 in cvs bucks i am thinking christmas shopping or somthing dont give up

    • KimP

      I live in Austin, Texas and none of the CVS around where I live gives raincheck on sale item. Is it a corporate rule or is it per discretion of the store manager? Everytime I asked, they said, “sorry, we don’t give raincheck on ECB sale items”. Any advise?

    • kelli

      I went into CVS today hoping to get a great deal (#121) and I ended up with a decent deal… I went to my regular CVS and they didn’t have anything that I was going to buy. I was really frustrated since they told come back today because they get trucks on tuesday… so I drove across town to the other CVS and they only had a few of the things that I was looking for (no highlighters, no airwick). Here’s the deal I got:

      (1) Revlon ColorStay Mineral Mousse ($9.99)
      (1) Blink Tears Lubricating Eye Drops ($7.99)
      (1) Naked Naturals Shampoo ($6.99)
      (1) Naked Naturals Conditioner (free, they’re bogo)
      – $5 off $25
      – (1) $1 off Revlon
      – (1) $1.50 off Blink Tears
      – $13.81 in ECBs

      Total OOP = $4.27
      And I got back $17.99 in ECBs
      On top of that, the Naked Naturals shampoo had a “try me free” tag on it.

      OH, and I JUST noticed this… I accidentally picked up a Value Pack of Blink Tears, which has 2 bottles of drops in it, instead of 1 (it should’ve been $14.99). It was on the shelf where the regular ones should’ve been and the cashier gave it to me for $7.99 and I got $8 ECBs for buying it. I guess she didn’t notice that it was the wrong thing either.

    • kelli

      KimP (#137) – have you tried different stores? I know that my regular store it kind of crappy about giving out rain checks. They almost always do it in the end, but I know that they don’t want to. I think it’s mostly because they’re lazy. You could try calling corporate and asking them what the deal is. Maybe they can force the store to give you rain checks.

    • Scott

      The Upromise e coupons….do I get a discount at the store like other e coupons or just a ‘deposit’ into my upromise account.

      Thanks!

    • I’m still learning, so my deal was nothing real big. I bought the Revlon Mineral Mousse so I could flip my $10 ECBs for $9.99 ECBs.

      I need to write down the guy’s name & find out when he works because he is so cool. When my free battery coupon printed, he was pointing me right to the shelf so I could get them right then. I love that.

      Does anybody happen to know what is in the $25 coupon book one is supposed to get for asking the pharmacy about ReadyFill?

    • Scott (#140), I believe all Upromise coupons are deposits to the education account.

    • cyndi

      Got a great deal on diapers! I had $10 ECB from last week left, bought two packs of huggies, used two coupons for $3 dollars off each pack,my $10 ECB and paid $3.76 oop. Got back $4 ECB! It was like getting free diapers! WOW!!

    • Stacie

      Quick question………

      My husband and I both have a CVS card, but we only use mine as he has no ECB’s saved up for me to get great deals with his. Anyway……. He received an email the other day for $4/$20. Are these coupons that are emailed to us connected with our CVS cards? I got one for $5/$25 but it can only be used tomorrow and I was kind of hoping to go in today and get that revlon deal or a raincheck anyway. I’m just wondering if I would be able to use the coupon that was sent to my husband or not seeing as how he isn’t going to use it with his card?

      Thanks for all the help, Jenny! I appreciate you!

      Stacie – I know that this might be a bit late, but I’m pretty sure that the $5 off $25 can be used today, unless it’s something different then what I got in my email. I used a $5 off $25 from email today to make a purchase. The coupon expired tomorrow. As for the email coupons, I’m pretty sure that they have to be used with the card attached to that email address. I’m pretty sure it’s got the card number on it somewhere…

    • kelli

      opps, I just reread the coupon… it does say just tomorrow. I used it today and it worked just fine.

    • Stacie

      Thanks Kelli! I actually just went and bought a couple of things tonight, but I’ll go back tomorrow and use my $5/$25 for diapers, airwick and sharpie highlighters, if there’s even any of them left! If not, maybe I can get a rain check, but I’m not sure if they will hold off on the coupon or not. Oh well, I still did well tonight, $17 for $1 (there about, I don’t remember the exact pennies), it was ok for a last minute trip.

    • KimP

      Thanks Kellie (#139). I tried all three stores close to my house and they all gave me the same answer. One store said they’ll give me raincheck on the item but not ECBs. I’ll call corporate to see what their policy is. Thanks.

      Anne-Marie (#141):
      I got my ReadyFill coupon book today for asking about the program (actually, I just asked about the coupon book at the pharmacy counter and the cashier just handed it to me with a smile!), and it has the following coupons:

      $4/20 any purchase
      $4/20 any purchase
      $4/20 any diet/nutrition purchase
      $4/20 any facial skin products
      $2/10 any vitamin products purchase
      $2/10 any allergy products purchase
      $2/10 any oral care products purchase
      $3/12 any eye care products purchase

      BTW, one store near me gives rain checks on ANYTHING out of stock. One manager at another store fairly close will not give rain checks on two- or three-day sale ECB items, but will for weekly or monthly deals – ECBs or not. The other employees (including the other manager) at the same store will. I just do not ask that manager for anything if I can help it! I wish corporate had a policy somewhere. If there is one online or in stores, I don’t know about it but wish I did! Anyone???

      Hi everyone,
      I found a $3.00 coupon for BIC soleil refillable razor or refills. This would make it .99. I’m not sure what packet of coupons it was in.

    • Rachel

      One more thing: I found a hidden deal today. Since this post says “please share,” here goes:
      I wanted to take advantage of the Revlon money-maker but do not wear liquid foundation, so I took the ColorStay Mineral Foundation POWDER to the Magic Coupon Machine and scanned it. It was $9.99 with card. I asked the cashier to give it a try and asked if the ECBs didn’t print, could I return it right then and get the makeup that would give ECBs. She was fine with that, but the ECBs DID print! YAY!!!

    • Debra

      I have a question for Cyndi #143, I just did the Huggies deal yesterday, can I repeat the deal again? I’m still learning about the extra care bucks and how it works. I would appreciate your help, thank you.

    • kelli

      Debra – If you’re buying something that give you ECBs and the limit is 1, you can only do it once; 2, you can do it twice… and so on. If it’s another sale priced item with no ECBs, for instance a BOGO item that has a limit of 6, I’m pretty sure that you can buy 6 of them over and over again, in different transactions.

    • Leslie Hoyer

      There is a $3.00QP that came in this past weeks Sunday paper for the Bic Soleil razor 1ct

    • lynn

    • Holly

      Does anyone know where I can get the diet coke $2 off coupon?Thank you

    • Holly

      Found it!

    • lynn

      debra some people like to have 2 extra care cards so they can do a deal more than once such as one card for you and one for your husband that would allow you to do the huggies 2x s if you would like hope that helps
      Holly where are there 2.00 diet coke ccoupons i sure could use it thank you

    • lynn

      ON THE 2 off 10 on any viamins purchased would that in clude vitamin water?

    • kelli

      lynn (#155) – I’m not sure but I think that you’d have to spend $32 to use both of the coupons at once.

    • KAY,

      So sorry it has taken me so long to respons, I was just plannng a trip to CVS, Are you in Orlando? I don’t have the $3 off coupon for Nexxus either, I am bummbed! Throws my entire plan off.

    • new at this

      I’m not sure if this should go here or somewhere else, but can anyone explain how tax works with CVS-ing? Today my total after Q’s was $15.90, which I paid for with $16 of ECB’s. Ordinarily, I would have bought something small to bump it up to not lose the .10, but because I had left my wallet in the car and didn’t want to go out and get it I decided to let it go…So after she scanned the ECB’s she said…”Ok, now the total is $.92″ So, I had to run to my car anyway! LOL. The cashier was very nice and could tell that I was confused and said that the weird price thing was because of taxes, but didn’t really give any details. There was someone behind me so I didn’t want to ask how it all worked and hold them up, but can any of you experts fill me in? I wasn’t upset (I had still gotten $40 worth of stuff for .92 out of pocket!), but I just want to be able to plan efficiently in the future.

    • My CVS people are great! I did try the $1.00 off sharpie highlighters, but they didn’t scan at all. Oh, well. I had a great week without them. I am still trying to get the electrasol deal from a few weeks ago. Now my q’s have expired! I think they will work with me, though, since I’ve kept going back to try to use the raincheck.

    • Jennifer

      I went to CVS yesterday and bought

      $13.00 (4) 12 packs of Dr. Pepper
      $13.00 (4) 12 packs of Coke
      $18.00 (2) packs of Huggies Supreme
      $ 8.99 (1) Coppertone
      $ 2.79 (2) Colgate toothpaste
      $55.78 total plus tax
      -1.00 Colgate toothpaste MF
      -3.00 Huggies MF
      -5.00 Coppertone printable coupon
      -5.00 if you spend $25.00 if you take the Readyfill quiz
      $45.13 total w/tax
      -25.00 CVS giftcard for transfering my RX
      $20.13 OOP
      plus I got
      $3.00 ECB for Coke
      $2.00 ECB for Coppertone
      $4.00 ECB for Huggies
      so it is like I got it all for 11.13
      My question is, shouldn’t I have gotten ECB back for the Dr. Pepper as well. I don’t want to go in and ask if I am not suppose to. Both are in the ad and they are on different pages so I figured I could buy both and get ECB on both of them.
      When I was checking out the guy mentioned me using coupons he said to watch out for the manager because she banned 2 ladies last week for using them. he said they got like $200.00 worth of stuff for .99. My question is can you be banned, no laws are broken. Now I am afraid to go and get the awesome deals I could get and risked being banned. I live in a small town and the closest one to me is over 30 minutes away.

    • kelli

      new at this (162) – I’ve been doing this for a few months and I’m still trying to figure out the tax thing. There has to be a way to figure it out, but I haven’t got a clue what it is. The only thing that I know for sure is that if the ECBs exactly cover what you buy, you pay nothing. If the ECBs have to be adjusted down, you pay a weird, seeming to be random amount… like once, I had to pay 5 cents for $20 in Aveeno lotion because my ECBs had to be adjusted down by 10. I don’t understand it at all.

      Jennifer (164) – I’ve been having a lot of trouble with my CVS recently. I think that the manager wants to tell me not to come back but I don’t think that she can. If she did, I’d report them to corporate because I don’t do anything wrong, I shop the sales and I use coupons… I think that she’s mad most of the time because I’m start enough to get piles of stuff for close to nothing, but that’s almost always because they’re free after ECBs.
      As for the ECBs you think you should’ve gotten… I glanced at my ad and I didn’t see any DP sale but if they were in 2 different places in the ad, it should be 2 different sales, therefore 2 different limits. If you’re scared to go back into the store to ask for them, call the number on my Extra Care card. I had a problem last week with the Softsoap deal, it didn’t print off my last $4 ECBs and the manager wouldn’t print them for me. I called the number and they added them to my card to print off the next time I bought something.

    • kelli

      has anyone else had trouble/success with the highlighter coupons? I’d love to use them but I don’t want to draw any extra attention to myself if the coupons don’t work. I already get a lot of crap at my CVS. Please let me know if you’ve used them and they did or didn’t work. Thanks!

    • Jennifer

      I used the highlighter coupon and had no problems. i have since heard that it is not counterfet, but the bagel bites (I think that is what they are calle, the ones that said see back for more detailS) and the Tide ones are counterfet.

    • Jennifer

      Kelli (166) Thanks for your insite, that is how I feel about the good buys. I am not walking out of the store without stopping at the cash register or using counterfeid money. I don’t see how they can band you from the store. That is just crazy. if that would to happen to me I think I would have to make a big deal about it. There is a sign by the cash register that reads, “we have the right to limited quanities” I had called the number on the CVS receipt and he also said he didn’t see the Dr. Pepper ad so I am guessing not every area has the same ad. I thought I had seen on a site that you could get 1.00 ECB if you buy milk, but that isn’t in my ad. I guess I’ll stop by CVS tomorrow and see what they have to say and if they wont give it to me I’ll just return the Dr. Pepper since it is higher w/o the EBC than Wal-Mart

    • Helen Craig

      Hey There! I went to CVS with all my stuff in hand and tried to use the $5 off $25 (from doing the ready fill survey). The very nice gentlemen at the register said that he couldn’t take it until tomorrow. I didn’t quite understand, so he turned the computer monitor over and showed me. It definitely said, not valid until 8/12. I felt bad because at that point he had already rung up everything. So I ended up not being able to use my $5 off and then I didn’t get my ECB’s for the $15 in candy I bought. I asked the gentlemen why and he said that because I had coupons for candy, it was less than $15 so I couldn’t get any ecb’s until I hit $15. Sure enough when I saw my receipt it said that I only qualified for $13.50 of the $15. So even though I had coupons, I still have to spend another $1.50. Anyone else had this trouble?

    • Helen#169
      My $5 off $25 coupon did the same thing but I told them it did not say anywhere on the coupon not good til the next day. The coupon also said if it didn’t scan to enter by hand a certain code and #. That is what my cvs store did so I got to use mine. I wouldn’t have hassled them about it but the coupon did not say anywhere that it wasn’t good until a specific date only an expiration date.
      Good Luck!!

    • kelli

      Helen (#169)I used my $5 off $25 coupon from the quiz on Tuesday with no problem at all. They didn’t have to enter the numbers or anything, it just scanned. It’s really weird that yours wouldn’t work… As for the candy, are you sure that you got $15 in candy? I’ve never had coupons make me unable to get the ECBs when it’s a specific dollar amount that you have to spend. I even used my free Abs Delight candy coupon last week and it showed up at $1.99 towards the $15 in candy.

    • Deb

      When I used my survey $5/25 cashier said it wasn’t wanting to go thru-she forced it-n/p.
      I did the 30 Mars candy bars late last Sat. evening-worked perfectly! I read on a nearby blog a girl did 150 candy bars and got all her ECB’s!
      I have a thing when it comes to CVS-I won’t pay more than $1. OOP when I do my deals-just me but I go in there to WIN and WIN BIG!

    • Jennifer

      I went to my CVS and bought 2 candy bars and used the $1.00 off of 2 candy bars coupon and on teh bottom of my receipt is said I had $14.00 more to spend to get the ECB. So in my case the coupon didn’t hurt any.

      CVS also had 5.8 oz tubs of Colgate Total advance clean plus whitening on clearance for $1.10 after the $1.00 coupon I only paid .10 for each one.

    • leigh

      Does the airwick freshmatic deal work w/the $6.00 coupon from the paper that says “I motion?”

    • Jennifer

      Does anyone know if there are any printable coupons for the $1.00 off of 2 candy bars?

    • kelli

      leigh (#174) – the $6.00 off coupon worked for me.

    • Leigh

      Thanks, I bought 2 this morning!

    • Cindy

      I am brand new to this, but jumping in with both feet! Fun stuff!
      My question is this – I need to buy some Depends (not for ME… LOL) and have a MFG Q that printed out from the Bi-Lo register.
      The cashier told me that I can’t use the coupon because it says Bi-Lo on it. She’s wrong, isn’t she?
      Is this a “can I speak to the manager” issue?

    • kelli

      I don’t know if your question has been answered elsewhere or not, and I might be wrong…. but I’m pretty sure that if it prints off at another store or has another store’s name on it, you can only use it at that store… unless the store you’re trying to use it at accepts competitors coupons.

    • Rachel

      Cindy #178 – If it says MANUFACTURER COUPON, it should be good anywhere. If it ONLY says Bi-Lo, then it is a store coupon good only at the store at which you received it. This should hold true anywhere. I have coupons that say “Redeemable at WalMart” that also say MANUFACTURER COUPON that I have used at CVS.
