Kristen found 3 different sites to take the CVS flu quiz on and get 3 different $5 off $25 coupons!  The bar codes should all be different.

Site #1
Site #2
Site #3

Take these and use them with the weekly deals to save even more.   They should be good into next week at least so don’t feel like you have to make a trip this week.

    • Lisa Huff

      I can’t get the quiz to load on any of the sites. Is anyone else having this problem?

      • Jenny

        It has taken me probably 10 minutes to get through the first 3 questions. I think they are getting slammed right now.

        • Ashley

          Mine says that it is loading… but it never goes to the quiz

      • Julie

        It printed for me :-)

      • When I printed coupons from each site I noticed that after it loaded my printer name was changed. I corrected my printer for the right name and then had no trouble printing

      • stephanie

        Lisa Huff in Anderson SC?

      • Marie

        Which internet browser are you using? I use IE 8 and I initially had issues but I pressed the Compatibility View button and I got through the quiz and was able to print the coupons.

      • DAWN

        I have haad the same problems and when I do take the quiz nothing comes up about a coupon after.

    • Jennifer

      I can’t print the coupon at the end. I have tried
      all the sites.

      • I can’t get any of them to print either. It will generate the coupon, but when I click print on the coupon, nothing happens. Are you using IE or FF? I was wondering if that would make a difference.

        • Annette

          Same thing happened to me on the 3rd sight, but after I clicked print (200 times… kidding) I got tired of waiting because it did not appear to be doing anything. I left the tab open, but went on to other coupon sights on a new tab, and as I was searching other things, suddenly my printer prompt appeared. I previewed it and it was black, so I returned to the CVS coupon tab, and clicked print again, and it worked. Not sure what that was about, but try waiting a long time 10-15 min, and it may still work

          • Karen

            Okay, I think I figured out what is happening to at least some of us using Firefox.

            I took the quiz (site 1), but nothing happened when I hit the print link. I updated JAVA and took the quiz again. Still nothing.

            Then, I realized that I have an adblocker program running in Firefox. (I use adblockplus – ABP.) I right clicked on the icon in the top right of my screen, diabled the ABP and hit the print button – THEN my printer option window came up and I could print! Yay!

    • Stacey

      I can take the quiz but when I generate the coupon, it has no exp date or barcode- it looks like a screenshot when it prints. I think the firewall here at work it blocked somehow. Are there any computer savy coupon gals out there to help me?

      • Jenny

        Mine looked like that on the screen but when it printed it had a bar code and looked normal.

    • Bobbie

      I just printed one from the first site listed and the expiration date id 10/13/09.

      • Bobbie

        2nd site also expired 10/13.

        • Bobbie

          Dud!!! It’s not 10/13 yet. Don’t know what I was thinking.

          • Haha Bobbie, I did that today with Sour Cream :)

            • Bobbie

              Well, I’m glad to know that I’m not the only one. LOL

    • Nancy

      Has anyone used all 3 coupons on the same card?

      • As long as they have different bar codes, they are considered new coupons. I used 2 this weekend on my card.

        • Lindsay

          The CVS on Maple Street in Carrollton told me that regardless of whether or not they have different bar codes, they are not allowed to take more than 1 per CVS card. :( Completely screwed up my plan this past weekend..just wanted to let yall know.

          • Catherine

            I used two last weekend as well on one transaction.

          • Meg

            CVS on Maple Street would only let me use 1 per card too. Messed up my plans as well. The clerk did tell me that management is cracking down on the ECB and is watching them.

    • Pam

      Something to think about…You might only be able to redeem one of these per CVS card.

      • Cris

        I made 6 copies of the same flu quiz coupon just to see if they would accept it…they did. One day–Same card, separate transactions. So far, I’ve only used 2 but it did scan at the register. FYI, I also took the quiz again, and the barcode was the same.

      • libby

        You can use more than one because I have already used 2 and plan to use more.

        • Lane

          I had followed a link a a comment from earlier in the week to re-take the quiz and print a new coupon. When I went to redeem that coupon tonight with a different card, an error message popped up telling the cashier the coupon had been previously redeemed on the date I used the first one. I don’t know which, but one of the ones from above worked.

    • EXTRA BUCKS earned from the last quarter should start printing Thurs Oct 1st

      • libby

        What do you mean?
        Do we get extra EXTRA BUCKS?

        • You get 2% from your summer spending!

    • Jenny

      Hey guys-
      This may be old news, but I just wanted everyone to be aware of the Children’s Tylenol recall. There is a complete list of the specific lot numbers that have been recalled on http://www.tylenol.com. It was on sale with coupon and ECB match-ups a few weeks ago at CVS, so those you you who took advantage of the deal may want to check to make sure they aren’t part of the recall.

    • Trish

      Thanks Jenny! I sure hope I can use all three of these!


    • Myra

      Let me know if anyone uses more than one of these on the same card….

    • Print from site 1 @ 3:14 Central Time

    • Michelle

      I printed two earlier in the week and when I went to use the second with with a different card…the computer said that I had already redeemed the coupon…but the manager was kind enough to override it…I don’t think I will push my luck with a third one. LOL….:) This was at the CVS in Kingsland, GA.

      • libby

        It doesn’t matter if you use a different card the barcodes are still the same. I had the same problem a couple of weeks ago…

    • This helps a lot this week. I’m so glad P&G are contributing $0.02 for each coupon used from this week’s Sunday insert paper to Breast Cancer. So I’m using this week’s new ones, even though a lot of the coupons match the ones that expire on 09/30. I don’t think the old coupon’s barcodes contribute to breast cancer (but I could be wrong).

    • Sharon in SC

      CLEARANCE ALLERT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

      Went to CVS today and they have clearance the Playskool Diapers MEGA packs to 3.50
      Pampers Baby Dry Mega packs to 4.50 and the Huggies snug and dry Mega packs to 4.50
      With the 2.00 off coupons made them 2.50 a pack!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

      They stated they were not going to carry the Baby Dry, only the Cruisers. This was in Batesburg, SC.
      Hope this helps someone!!! They had size 6 left in Batesburg for Pampers, Huggies and Playskool.

    • Catherine

      Thanks. I got all three. One quick question, I had printed one from my computer before and wonder if that one would be same code as one of these three??? I used that one already, so I don’t know??????

    • Heather

      Hey! I think I read this once somewhere on this site but I’m not 100% sure. I am trying to figure out the best way to work this. Am I supposed to let them ring everything up first including my coupons and then scan my CVS card? I usually have a hard time getting things to add up to $25.00 after the sales. I’m not even sure if they will let me do that. If you have any suggestions or advice they would be greatly appreciated!!

      • My local cvs scans my card first. The $25 adds up from the sale price and then deducts coupons. example: Tuesday I purchased the vaseline lotion $7 ecb, Today I purchased 3 tide, 3 dawn, 1 bounce, 1 scope outlast mouthwash and 1 crest outlast all with coupons on each item. After the $10 and $3 ecb, I walked out with all of my items for FREE!!! luvin some cvs freebies!!!

    • Why do my CVS (flu shot coupons ) show expired and I took the test todat

    • Lori

      On the $5 off $25 printable coupon… Is it necessary to have 3 different barcodes on the coupons or is it somehow tracked with your CVS card? Also, I used the same 3 different sites for the coupons last week. Is there gonna be a problem using the same ones this week? Just trying to avoid potential issues in advance… Thanks!

      • Sandra

        I’d like to know that too…let me know if you get an answer!

        • Carrie

          Okay, as far as both CVS stores where I live in Georgia, the card(s) that I have tracks the bar code, and I used the last of the three barcodes this week after it wouldn’t allow the other two, even giving the dates when I had used them a week or so earlier. Hope this helps.

          • Lori

            yeah, I tried to use one of them a second time, different week & they wouldn’t work, so I guess I’ve used all mine up?? :'(

    • Sonya

      I tried the first one on FF, and got a black sheet of paper to print, no coupon, just shades of black and gray lines. I tried it in IE and it printed fine.

      • Carrie

        I got the black one too and unfortunately it printed in the printers expensive glossy black ink. But I just flipped it over and did the print manually and it worked that time.

    • Tara

      I’m new to this CVS thing. I have an EC card, and I bought some things a couple of weeks ago and ended up with $13 in EC bucks…and now I have a $5 off coupon. Any suggestions of how to best use this, and get more ECBs???


    • courtney

      Can you use the Hershey’s Q’s on the Mars sale???? Are they the same company…I can’t seem to figure that out…looked online. Any help would be appreciated…trying to get Halloween candy :-)

      • Rebecca

        Look at the bottom of the coupon in the fine print, and look at the back of the bags you buy. They’ll either say MM/Mars, Hershey’s, or Nestle (those are the 3 big ones). They’re all separate companies. CVS’ scanners are very generous about coupons. (eg. if the coupon is for MM/Mars something, it’ll take a coupon for any MM/Mars item that you want to buy – it doesn’t have to be the exact item on the coupon. It is shelf item for shelf item — freezer item for freezer item specific though.) And, what the checkout person will allow is another matter… Best of luck!

    • I took the quiz on site 1 and 3 and nothing happened. No coupon popped up to even try to print. Did anyone else have this happen?

      • Me too. I thought it was just me.

      • Amanda Carnes

        No coupon for me, either:(

    • Jay

      Neither site has a $5 off coupon available any longer :(
