      Woohoo! Now, to find $20 worth of stuff to buy after two trips this week…
      thinking there'd be extra papers at coffee houses. :)

    • MichelleM

      I got one in the Sun-Sentinel (Fort Lauderdale, FL) :o)

    • T Giles32

      i did this and only got 2 extra care bucks back but i used the others on other purcheses and if you are in south some of use did not get that coupon really wish you would put regional in a different color

      • Couponllb

        Did you combine with ECB?

    • Dianne L

      I wonder if you could use more than one of these coupons if you could come up with $40.00 worth of items.

      • Matt

        You can. You just have to do 2 transactions!

    • Kelly

      page A12 in the Orlando Sentinel

    • Kal1484

      The fine print read that you can't use any other CVS coupons. Would this included ECB?

      • Rachel

        You should still be able to use ECBs with it. I don't think they consider those “coupons”.

    • kp322

      I don't see one in the Houston Chronicle…

      • Jennifer

        me either! Does anyone know where it is?

    • Madbeachin1

      Not in the St. Petersburg Times (FL) ……..:(

    • Acreeplumbing

    • Couponllb

      I got one in the Thursday Orlando Sentinel.

    • Moomoo1771

      I don't see it in the Ocala Star Banner :(

    • I'm almost afraid to ask…but has anyone seen it in The State (South Carolina) paper? Where can I get a copy of the Atlanta paper? It seems like my best bet is a Barnes & Noble, although there isn't one very close to me at the moment.

      • Lj

        I was wondering if it's in the Greenville News.

      • happymom

        I know… I absolutely hate that Capitol Newsstand closed downtown! The State doesn't seem to get as many coupons as the Atlanta Journal.

    • SSWalker

      Indianapolis Star has it!! I don't usually read all the way through the paper, but I was perusing today because of some education news, and BAM! $5!! Yea!

      • Booherbets

        What issue? From Sunday or within the week?

    • Egonz074

      Miami herald has it

      • mrs. b

    • Dana

      • mel

    • Zombiemommy

      And last Thursday's AJC I heard there was a $5 off $30 for Publix, did anyone here of that one?

      • Zombiemommy

        HEAR… Sorry.

        • Rebecca D

          i think it was in wednesday's paper – but mine came in the free “dekalb neighbor” instead of the AJC.

          • What is the dekalb neighbor and how/where do i get this?

      • Amy

        I live in Atlanta and went to a Publix last Thursday asking about a specific coupon book and customer service told me about the coupon in the paper, $5 off $30 at Publix.

    • Flie

      here's a $5/$20 and $3 off any diaper purchase in the houston chronicle today may 5th. both exp 5/7. Page A9.

    • Mandi

      It is NOT in the Chattanooga Times Free Press… Boo!

      • BusyMom

        Thanks for letting me know. I was just about to run to the store to get the paper. Do you know if there is anywhere in Chattanooga area that we can purchase the Atlanta paper?

    • Christi

      Triangle friends: Has anyone seen it in The Herald Sun or the News & Observer?

    • Bonnie

      Online newspapers like Providence Journal and Washington Post have it. I wonder if it will work printing it out from one of these?

      • Guest

        Where are you finding it in the PROJO?

        • Bonnie


        • scubatown

    • Ann in VA

      I have it in Alexandria, VA in the Washington Post.

    • Tammy

      Got mine from the AJC this morning. Went to CVS, used my rain check for 4 of the airwick freshmatics. reg. 13.39 raincheck for 6.00. Used the 5 off 20.00, 4 4.00 coupons. Paid 4 bucks out of pocket and was supposed to get back 10.00 ECB.. but the girl made a mistake and printed one for $1.oo ECB. So she gave me that one and printed my 10 one also.. So I made 7.00 on that little deal… I am very happy because my coupons were about to run out…whew!

    • Live in ATL but stuck at home with an awful migraine :( Sure wish I had a way to get a copy of the paper.

    • Cmhughe2

      Tampa trib has it!

      • Dani

        Did not find it in the news stand Tampa Trib.

        • Dani

          Just saw I bought a Wednesday paper dang!

    • Post and Courior anyone? (charleston)

    • Kati

      If something is on sale for 2/$6 at CVS, do I have to buy 2 or can I just buy one item for $3??

      • Ginger

        Just one item for $3.00.

    • Can anyone in the ATL area tell me which weekday newspaper coupons come out in or any other local papers to be looking in for coupons? We can't subscribe b/c of where we live so i get multiple copies of the Sunday paper but haven't been getting any of the mid-week papers. Just wondering if it is worth it to pick up any of those or not?

      • Angiemarshall63

        The only one that coupons sometimes come out in is Thursdays. Get the Sat. and Sunday paper. I have mine delivered and if the coupons are not good that week then I cancel the paper for the week and wait for next week. I would not bother with Thursday unless you subscribe because they throw it in for free. To in the AJC they had 5 0ff 20.00 at CVS but that is the first time I have seen one. Publix one cent you get at your local paper either on Weds or Thursdays depending on your area. I got my script for AJC 50 percent off also : )

    • Kathy

      Does anyone know if The State in Columbia, SC has it??

      • Couponjunkie

        Did not see it in the one they delivered (I'm in Lexington). Not sure about what's in the stores.

    • Jenifer1999

      I just got an email with a $5 off $30 coupon in it…. not as good as this, but still not too shabby.

      Also, the last time I had one of these to use the cashier at my CVS refused to take it until after I had given her all my coupons & ECBs. First time I had that happen…. of course, at the time, I was still able to use it because I had bought so much that day. :shrug: This was at a store in Knoxville, TN.

    • Dianne L

      This is really weird. My daughter has been to two locations and has looked through several AJCs, but she can't find the coupon!

      • Guest

        AJC has different copy of paper depend on where in Atlanta you get the paper.

    • Ldybug

      AJC page A18

    • Mistie_blevins

      Anyone knoe if it is in the Knoxville paper?

      • Mistie_blevins

        wow….know. Long day at work.

    • Heatherwoods99

      Has anyone seen it in the Charlotte Observer here in NC?

    • Kay

      Went to town, forgot the AJC paper, came home and checked e-mail and what did I find??? A $4.00 off $20.00 at CVS in my inbox! I would have had to pay $1.00 for the paper so this evened out! God is GOOD! ;-)

    • Winansphd

      The $5 off of $20 was in the Orlando Sentinnel on page A12 (Thursdays paper)

    • Madbeachin1

      St. Pete Times (FL) has this coupon in TODAY'S paper. Page A12

    • Rodgers1016

      I have a question as a new cvs shopper. I received an email from cvs with a coupon for $5 off my next purchase of $30. In small print it says “This coupon cannot be combined with any other coupon that offers money off a certain purchase amount.”

      What does that mean? Can I not use a coupon that says, for example $2 off Colgate? Their wording has me a little baffled. Any help would be appreciated! Thanks!

      • Lffricke

        You can use coupons like that you just can't use another coupon that says like the $5 off $20 that was recently in the paper.

        • Rodgers1016

          thank you!

    • Wgkgbm03

      is the $5.00 off coupon only in certain States…or am I not looking in the right area.
