There are a few more deals to catch if you are headed to CVS. The coupon center is printing two coupons that make for free baby wipes and lotion!  Be sure to scan your card and report back if you get any other great coupons!

  • CVS brand baby wipes 72 ct., at $2.99
    -$3 off CVS baby wipes (thanks Betty!)
    (makes it FREE)
  • CVS brand lotion 3 oz. at 99¢
    -$1 off any hand or body lotion
    (makes it FREE)
    • Donnamurphy59

      Did show up on my CVS card in Al.

    • Bugaboobags

      Got a 1.00 off fun size twix or kit kat CVS coupon today and they are on sale for .99…cashier made the coupon .99 so I would only owe tax! .02 for candybars….LOVE IT!!

    • Sdlajmack

      The coupon center in my store is always “down”!! Never have been able to get a coupon.

    • SamsMommy

      Does anyone know how long these coupons are good for? Like if they expire the next day or last longer?

      • Freemn4

        The expiration dates are printed on the coupons, which I believe mine have always been valid only for the day they were printed.

    • Becky

      I went by today and got some free lotion AND scanned my card again and got some FREE Fun Size Kit Kat Candy Bars $.99 ea with the $1/1 Mars/Nestle/Hersheys Q that printed! Love's me some free chocolate! It was gone before I got home!

      • TC

        I thought these candy coupons were for the larger sizes(8oz -12oz), or something like that? If so, no free candy.

        • Guest

          Yep they was. Many people using the coupons wrong. Hope CVS doesn't do away with the coupons machine. I am sure they will one day.

          • I had the same coupon as Becky & it said “fun size” which is different from “snack size” so *YES* it *DID WORK* on the pack on the front right hand side of the CVS ad. She did not do it wrong.

            • There are at least 2 different candy coupons printing out from the CVS red machine in the store. I got both different coupons & used this one just like Becky did. Hubby was happy with the free Twix I got him! :-)

          • Freedomspradley1

            I got the candy coupon yesterday and it was $1 off 1 bag. We all get bent out of shape about being accused of coupon fraud by cashiers. I think it’s a tad worse to be accused of fraud by other fellow couponers.

      • Sg

        Did you scan your card once today or can you do it twice?

        • Jessdare101

          you can do it twice, one right after another. It will tell you, you've printed all coupons for today, check back tomorrow.

      • Guest

        sure that 1/1 coupon was a 1/2 mar sizes 9 oz or more? That what CVS ad showed on the front page.

    • Nippre615

      I ran to CVS to grab the lotion and baby wipes and they were on their ECB list. :(

    • Nipper615

      Ooops… I mean were not on their ECB list.

    • Susanizanurse

      I'm still trying to figure out where's the “free” Essence of Beauty bath wash so many have referenced! I have the q from the red machine but cannot for the life of me find the 12 oz bath wash that will be free with the $2 coupon! Even the store folks can't find it for me so I'm about to throw in the towel on this deal!

      • lv2164

        I never received it either.

    • Krisanne

      All i got was $1 off hershey funsize :( no baby wipes or lotion

    • Maryanne5610

      The CVS in Brunswick Georgia is not having the same deals.

    • SCJen

      Got the Candy one that Bugaboo described, but no baby wipes for me — Oh well, maybe next time!

      • Lori

        Did you know that you can scan your card more than once, I have scanned mine several times and gotten a different coupon each time

        • Freemn4

          I was told that scanning my card more than once would result in more coupons by a lady in the store. I tried it at my store and it didn't work. It said something like “no offers today, try again tomorrow”. I guess it must vary by store. I am glad it works for you though. :)

          • Lori

            It varies by day. I can usually scan twice. Sometimes it is only once. Sometimes it is up to 4-5 times.

            • Freemn4

              Ok, thanks for the info. I will try to scan it more than once each time knowing it may or may not work. I just went in to see what the red machine would give me today since I was going by there. I didn't get the above mentioned items either, but I got $3 of Revlon and asked cashier if I could use it on emery boards which were $2.99 and she said “I don't see why not” and she price modified the coupon to take off the $2.99, I also got a $1 off fun size candy which I found m-n-m's on sale for $0.99 and she let me use it on those as well. I just paid like $0.22 tax on the sale… I was happy.

          • Guest

            I usually can scan my card twice. The coupons you get are based on what you spend those. The more you spend the more and higher value coupons you get.

          • sandra

            MIne does the same thing – I have only scanned it a second time a few times and it has never printed more coupons out.

        • Donna in Texas

          I tried that and got no coupons at this time reply. Maybe different machines are set up differently.

    • Tambam40000

      Wish the machine in Hartsville would work. Out of order half the time.

      • Coupons4rhonda

        Hey, ask the sale person. Most of the time it's out of paper. Ours is like this a lot.

      • Ucmba97

        I'm in Hartsville too. Our red machine has been out of order for over a week. I don't think it's just out of paper either.

        Our stor also needs new receipt printers. Sometimes the bar codes on extra bucks are so light, the cashiers have to type in the numbers when you use them because they won't scan. This makes much work for cashiers and Nancy then grumbles about needing new reciept printers at the store.

        Mackie is an awesome manager, though. He's a fan of us coupon folks!!

    • Fairydusted27

      sorry, I feel stupid asking but what is the coupon center?

      • Targetzero

        It's the red coupon machine that you scan your CVS card and it prints coupons for you. Googe “CVS coupon machine” to see the image.

    • Couponllb

      My CVS (Orlando, FL) printed $3 off Revlon today.

    • Tracy

      are these coupons random…I went today, and got a $1 some candy, and $2 off of a purchase. no candy corn or baby wipes or lotion. just curious if each store and each customer within store get different ones.

      • millie

        yes

    • Dacia

      I got $1 extracare buck & $1 off fun size candy

    • Coupon Q

      How do you get the $4 or $5 off $20 coupons. I haven't gotten any. My CVS is only giving out $1 off hand sanitizer! I am ready for a great coupon. My machine only lets you zap a couple times a week.. never on the weekend.

      • Mommysauls

        mine too ! & i live in Rocky Mount NC

    • Southpawtracy

      I got three today…

      1/ $1.00 Extra Bucks Reward……Does not expire until 12/12/10

      2/$5.00 off $20.0 ANY Nature Made Vitamins

      3/$1.00 Mars,Nestle fun size Hershey's snack size

    • Shanvickery

      My coupon for wipes states that it is for at least 144 ct. wipes. Has anyone used it on the 72 ct. wipes?

      • Guest

        The cashier would not let me use it on the 72 count size.

        • Cathy

          I had to read my coupon closely and it had a tub OR a 144 count refill. It took me a minute to catch the OR so I was able to grab a tub free with no problems.

          • Mlsshartz

            Thank you Cathy for pointing that out. I stood looking at the wipes forever. Even had that tub in my hand, but was still looking for the count size. I think the tub was what 140 or 141 count. So I put it down…lol. I will have to go back and get them.

            • Cathy

              You're welcome! Having the numbers on the coupon threw me too. It seemed it was all that my eyes would focus on. I was able to get the 72 count tub. Figured if they gave me a hard time, I would point out the OR. :)

            • Dana

              I even pointed out that difference in tub OR refill, but my cashier still would not let me use it on the 72 count tub.

            • Cathy

              Hmmm. Wonder what would have happened if you asked for the manager. It's such a shame that so many of us are told different things. She even gave me $3.00 off even tho it was $2.99, which I would have been happy with her doing.

          • Freedomspradley1

            All tubs are 72 ct. I got one yesterday absolutely free!

      • Rae

        Mine (Florida) was for 144 ct. as well…would make it $3.00 – NOT free!

      • Betty

        I used mine on 72 ct wipes and it went through fine.

    • Mariecollins

      I went to CVS this afternoon and all I got from the coupon center was $1.00 off a king size candy bar and another coupon for $3.00 off revlon make up. NO wipes or hand lotion for me.

    • Tigergrl08

      Does anyone know if these coupons are random or how it is determined what you get out of the machine? I have scanned my father's card and gotten $2 ECB's and many $3 off $15 while my friend will scan hers and gets .99 off candy. It seems like the more you have purchased the “better” coupons/ECB's you get….. I guess I'm just confused how its all determined!

    • Rebecca

      I went today and it printed a coupon for $1 off a package of fun size Mars candy and a .50 ECB. There were peelies on the candy package for .50 off and they were on sale for 2.99, so I got a bag of fun sized snickers for .54 OOP. Pretty good!

      Also got the $1 off hand sanitizer coupon, but didn't use that one.

    • marcy

      thumbs down….i went to the waxhaw nc cvs in hopes of scoring wipes – no such luck

      • sandra

        Ugh I know, Last week they were out of .99 Brach's candy corn (but they had another brand, they should allow substitution), no brach's this week either, no lotion and no wipes. I signed up for the hand sanatizer tho and got the 2nd to last neutrogena thing. Altho they are free deals I wish there was an option to type ur card number in online if you can't make it in to see if you would even GET the special 99 cent prize. My CVS isn't easy to get to!

    • Angiefaye818

      My CVS coupon center gave 3.00 off any hair color! I was excited. I had a 2.00 coupon so got it for .99….that was so worth the trip!

    • VLdyRainey

      We went into CVS the other day and they had Smart Water on sale for 1$. I had a 3$ CB so we got 3 and paid nothing. Now my daughter asks if we have coupons for things she wants. LOL

    • Rebqpons

      CVS machine was out of paper today, but when I checked out with my “free” hand sanitizer pen and “free” corn candy, the register printed the coupons I would have gotten from the red machine. So when the machine is down or out of paper, I find something to buy, and then I get the coupons and do not have to go to another store to find a working machine.

    • Simplysettled199

      I was in my CVS yesterday and did not get the wipes/lotion q but i got a great deal. I bought the $5 WYB 3/$10 Kellogs cereal bars on one trasaction, then i used the ECB to purchase Huggies diapers which i had a $2.50 q for and a bottle of mens Nivea which i had a $3 q for. The coupon machine printed out $2 of ECB, I had one from a previous trip and the $5 from the cereal bars for a total of $8 ECB. I ended up paying $1.60 for the Huggies and Nivea. Total spent = 11.70 for 3 boxes cereal bars, Huggies, Nivea, plus i had free q for the hand sanitizer and 24ct. advil….that was an awesome trip!

    • New Mom

      FYI last week I received a $3 off Huggies boxed diapers. When I went in this week the young manager asked me if I received the coupon (he knows how often I scan my card). I told him yes and he informed me that the coupon also works on packs of Huggies!!! I was a little unsure but sure enough it worked. I really don't feel bad since it was the manager that informed me of this. If you receive the coupon, which only prints for me occasionally, try it on the packs!

    • Ucmba97

      I went yesterday at lunchtime. Red machine was out of service. I got 2 Mentos gum with coupon and checked out. On my receipt was save $1 off 1 dove chocolates bag 8oz or more. Save $1 on one new chap stick from the lip care center and save something on nature made vitamins. Not what y'all are reporting getting. This was in Harstville, SC store.

    • Grammyofjack

      I have trouble with the coupon kiosk. If I get coupons one afternoon, the next afternoon no coupons will print. It is VERY aggravating.

      In Buford, GA, the coupons(yesterday) were for CVS brand bagged nuts and $1off some $15 item. Got nuts.

    • Renep22

      I loved the free hand lotion. I had just run out of the small size hand lotion i keep in my bag. I figured this deal out all by myself on Sunday afternoon. I was so proud of myself:)

    • Zjqtcj

      I went to store yesterday and scanned my card. No coupons for king size candy bar, wipes or hand lotion for me. Just so surprised how you all got them.

    • Sarahrhoads

      I scanned 3x and none for me either!

    • Darla

      I never get any coupons when I scan mine!

    • heidi

      Got the $3 wipes coupon and was able to get a free tub of wipes! When I had my first baby, I was pretty clueless as to how many wipes I would go through, so with my 2nd one on the way now, I'm all about a free thing of wipes. :)

    • Morgan

      I didn't get any of those coupons! The ones I got weren't very good.. and I didn't get the one for candy corn either. Boo.

    • Donna

      I don't understand why I am only getting $1 off candy coupons in coupon center! Am I doing something wrong?

    • Lhartley16

      I did not get the candy coupon when I went on Sunday and I was looking forward to some free candy especially since it was my daughters fav.

    • Rachel

      Mine also stated for 114 ct or larger, but the round (hole on top) is considered a tub, which makes the whole container .69. This should last me forever for car use only!

    • Ilovewdw

      The Mont AL CVS on Bell & Vaughn has a BROKEN Coupon machine today. Just be aware if that's where you shop.

    • Limayri

      Went to the coupon center and didn't get any of the free wipes/lotions print out :(

    • Mommysauls

      Rocky mount NC … got none of these coupons.. Same boring ones :(

    • Lisa

      I didn't get any of these coupons – just coupons for $1.00 off candy

    • just went to the Ashburn, VA CVS….. coupons that printed (after i scanned twice) were $1 off two gold label pretzels or nuts, and $1 off hand sanitizer 8oz or larger. Got two medium size pretzels (89c each regularly), and invested in one of those green bag tags. They're 99c and you get 1ECB every 4 times you use it.

      • What's a green bag tag? Thanks!

        • Ashleyw81

          It's a tag that you purchase to attach to a reusable bag and each time you bring in the bag for your purchases (instead of getting a CVS plastic bag) they will scan it. Every fourth scan gets you a $1 ECB. The tags cost 99 cents.

        • Sg

          Just remember the grenn tag is great, however, it is only good till December . That is what I was told.

          • Caroline

            Only good until December?? I hadn't heard that! I use mine every time I shop, which is often twice a week or more. It won't accept it at the same store for more than one transaction but you can use at any number of stores in the same day. We have 3 stores here (Harrisonburg, VA) and while I don't usually shop all three, one day I really needed something that two didn't have. I still made purchases at the first two and my green bag tag was accepted at each store! Great way to earn an ECB! And I bought mine one week when you got an ECB for purchasing so it was free to start!

    • Thecouponkitty

      I'm in Columbia, SC and just went to the CVS on Forest Drive. They have a clearance section at the end of the aisle near the pet supplies with some pretty good deals. I found covergirl lipstain marked $1 and then had a $1 coupon. Even though the barcode was marked through and the price was written on it with a black marker, the cashier let me use the coupon. They also have CVS lotion for 1.50, Sally Hanson nail polish for 1.25, and Cutter bug spray for $1.50. Blade body wash is $1.25 and 2.00 depending on which one you pick up. There are a few other things on that aisle too that are great!

      • Sg

        When you go to CVS do you carry all of your coupons with you? I have been figuring up transactions to use and only look for those items and take only those coupons. I also cannot seem not get other items and not lose ECBs. After work todoy I am going to that CVS and look around. At that CVS can you scan your card more than once?

        • Thecouponkitty

          I usually carry my coupons that are really close to expiring just in case I see something on clearance. I can scan my card twice at the store on Forest Drive.

        • Mdobbs12004

          i carry my coupons every where i go! i have a five star binder with baseball card holders in it and then i have them separated into catagories that way i can flip through and see my coupons as i shop!

    • Fallaya

      Scanned my card today…only got the 1 off 2 gold emblem nuts and 1 off hand sanitizer coupons. I don't get the “good” coupons much anymore.

      • Sg

        Those are the ones I got also. I also do not get good ones anymore.

    • Fallaya

      I really wish CVS would simply give everyone the same coupons.

    • Michelle

      I didn't get any of these good coupons today, either. :-(

    • karen

      *REMEMBER* to scan your card until the machine says “sorry no more coupons come back tomorrow” I can usually scan my card three times in a row before it says sorrrrrry :-) and it is usually the last round of coupons you'll find the good ones! Good luck!

    • Mlsshartz

      Tonight the machine printed out the $3 off CVS brand baby wipes and $5/2 Almay color cosmetics.

    • Janet Price

      I'm not getting these coupons either. Apparently it's only in the Columbia area that's getting them. I have been to CVS 3x's since Saturday just to scan my card. I'm with the others….the coupon for Pretzels/Nuts…and hand sanitizer. :-(

    • Shannonsnail

      I've gone two days in a row and just get the nuts and hand sanitizer….ugh!

    • Marjorie_cleveland

      Did not get the baby lotion or wipes, but did get 30% off coupon on any CVS products which I happily used on things I needed. And thank for info about scanning 3X–I just scanned twice.

    • Ctcjsbag5

      I have went twice and scanned my card and received no baby wipes or lotion coupons.

    • StephEast

      Went by today to do my daily scan and received a 3.00 off any revlon cosmetics purchase!!

    • ladymoon0121

      I got the cvs brand baby wipes coupon today but I could not use it on the 72 ct tub even if it says tub or refill. However I did notice there is a bigger “tub” which fits the amount listed. It worked and for .69 it is not that bad to have some wipes in the car for just in case, like sticky hands and faces.

      However no lotion coupon :(

    • Motcmom

      I've been the last couple of nights, and no baby wipe or lotion coupons…….not getting but one or two at a time, and for hand sanitizer and other stuff I don't use….. I can only scan twice befoe it tells me that there are no more…..

    • Ilovewdw

      No more baby wipes for me either. I did however get (on different days) $1 off 2 GE pretzels or nuts. The 5oz pretzels are on sale at my CVS for .66 each…..since I got the same coupon 2 days in a row (and it didn't expire until sat!) I went back today to get something else and picked up 4– 5oz bags of GE pretzels for 18 cents each! My kids love pretzels and I like them for snacks better than chips so its something we would buy anyway.

    • SCcouponsRMG

      i wonder if u HAVE to use the first coupons before they give u nw ones…i havent used the pretzel or hand sanitizer and keep getting them… maybe they have to be used before we can get the baby wipes, etc.

    • Darlenesmilligan

      Just went my CVS on Hwy 58 Chattanooga, Tn and tried 3 times to get the free coupons and they would not print!!!!! Couldn't get the wipes or lotion.

    • Livserge331

      I didn't get these coupons today :( I didn't think of trying my card again, because when I've done that in the past, it just says “No more coupons, try later” or something like that. Hopefully tomorrow or Monday it'll still be producing these!

    • Lucieluck69

      I had the same situation as Livserge331. Went in & it gave me two totally differenct coupons on Sat, Will try again today

    • Vbrennanphotography

      CVS in Waycross, GA didn't have either of these deals. :o(

    • Francine1126

      how do you get the free coupons at CVS?

    • Guest

      My CVS would not let me use the 3.00 coupon on the 72 count tub.
