Today only, get an extra savings at CVS!

Follow CVS on facebook and you can print a coupon for $5 off your next $40 purchase.  They will want your email address and will send the coupon to you after signing up.

This is a high purchase requirement so in some cases you’ll still do better sticking with smaller transactions and not paying much out of pocket.  If you want to use it though here’s an idea:

**Deal Idea**
(4) Gas-X Prevention 20 ct., $6.29
(2) Oral-B Toothbrushes $2.99
(1) Complete Contact Solution 12 oz $8.99
-$5 off $40 purchase
Manufacturer Coupon (4) -$4 off Gas-X Prevention product, SS 12/12
Manufacturer Coupon -B1G1 Oral-B Advantage or 3D White Vivid toothbrush, max $2.99, RP 3/13
Manufacturer Coupon -$2 off Oral-B Pulsar, CrossAction, or Advantage toothbrush, PG 4/03
Manufacturer Coupon -$1 off Complete multipurpose eye solution, 12 oz, SS 4/03
Total Due: $13.14
Get Back: $20.97 ECB ($10, $1.98, $8.99)

You make $7.83 profit!!

    • Dianne L

      When I go to facebook using your link, there's nothing about a coupon. What am I missing? Thanks!

      • Dianne L

        Never mind. The second time I tried, it all came up!

    • Lynnfallaw

      i just tried to take advantage of $5 coupon offer i was denied the coupon . i was told i had already recieved that offer. i had not. so i call cvs and again turned down. i was told this offer was only for anyone who had not used their e-mail address before. no where did i read that. very disappointed. cvs should make their offers clear. any one else had this problem?

      • CCShad

        I did not have a problem printing mine and my email is not new to cvs. It sounds like the person you talked to is confusing it with the $4 off $20 coupon you get when you first sign up for cvs emails. Maybe try again on Facebook?

      • PigBetsypen

        I called CVS because I had a 25% off that would not work and they issued me another that I got out of the red box the next day and used it today. It did not expire until the end of April.

    • CCShad

      Another deal idea is to use this coupon along with the P&G deal this week. I ended up getting 2 Tides, 2 Charmin TPs, 2 toothbrushes and 1 contact solution all for free b/c the red box gave me $5 beauty reward and $8 Winter reward.

    • Nicole

      Can you use this coupon, along with the coupons mentioned and ECB's that you may already have?

      • sarahcas

        Yes, the only coupons you probably can't use with it are other $/$ coupons like $3/$15 or $5/25

    • Amber

      So, to be certain, with this coupon, I should present it FIRST, followed by my other coupons and ECBs?

      • Lfenyin


      • Cbgw01

        Yes, present the $ off $$ first (before coupons) because it will not scan unless the register says at least $40. $ off $$, coupons, ECBs.

      • msivory20

        Oh yes, always do the $ off $$ coupon first :)

      • Amber

        Thanks everyone for your help! This is my first $ off $$ coupon. :)

    • angiej

      awww man wish I had waited a day before I did my p&g deal now euggghh

    • Miladereck

      can i use this coupon on publix? thanks

      • Cbgw01

        depends on your area. My Publix (Central FL) does not accept CVS or Wags as competitors. But I've heard that some in GA and the Carolinas do.

      • my publix in SC (charleston area) accepts them as competitor coupons. Just have to ask your store!

      • PigBetsypen

        Some Publix's don't accept drug store coupons.

      • All of my Publix in Gator Town (Gator Town), that I have been to at least, accept the x/xx CVS and Walgreens coupons. Both drugstores are within 5 miles of each of the Publix I frequent and both have well stocked grocery sections. My Publix also accepts Family Dollar, Dollar General, and Target as competitors as well, though.

        • Oops, that was supposed to be (Gainesville, FL) where I put (Gator Town) a second time. *blush*

          • Sean

            Which Publix is this? The one at Williston Road and 34th doesn't take any of those coupons.

          • Chrissy

            Im in Gainesville too! Go Gators :)

      • Janice

        Not in Huntsville AL

    • WynetteC

      It didn't seem to work for me after I liked them on facebook. Unless this is a delayed email response type coupon. It's not in my spamor junk folder either. I have been on their email list for a long time now and I never receive printables emails for their store either. Maybe it's time for a new card.

    • m.

      i'm gonna use it for an extra $5 off my crest whitestrips,,bringing the total to $25 off whitestrips!!,,woohoo!! gonna be llike $29.oo OOP….

      • m.

        ok,also used a $3 ECB from prev tran,,making it like getting $28 off!!!,,,,,if i would ahad a bigger ECB,,,it would have been even less,,,for instance if you did the P&G spend 10 get 10ecb,,,,,it would a been more like getting $35 off,,,in other words,,good deal on whitestrips!!,,lol

    • Caritob40

      I haven't get anything…anyone else having trouble???

      • da

        I haven't gotten my email either… and it's not in my spam… ???

      • Nmote

        I've been waiting for an hour and a half. I hope that it will hurry up. I want to use it w/ the P & G deal.

      • WynetteC

        I had given up on receiving it in email (from much earlier this morning) and it just came through. Must be something on their side slowing it up.

    • Kate

      This is valid through Sunday 4/10 – so if you've already done your deals for this week, use it on next week's deals.

      • Crafty_cat_86

        thanks, I was wondering that–I did every deal yesterday for $0 oop and got $90 worth of stuff, so I'm done with big purchases for the week :)

    • We2ding

      I got mine and purchased $40 off stuff for $19 and got 3 extra bux back. I got 1 Loreal Lip gloss, 2 bottle of vitamins, 2 bottles of hair,skin, nail vitamins, 2 body washes, a pack of gum and 2 boxes of Kellog'sg Cereals.

      • Sn888zy

    • Anna

      Did my CVS'ing this morning. Sure wish I had seen this $5 off coupon before I went! Thanks Jenny!

      • PigBetsypen

        Me too!!! Maybe we will find more good buys to save on.

    • Lyates10

      Can I use this coupon at Harris Teeter?

      • Proudlyamom

        I wouldn't think so….wouldn't think HT considers them a competitor.

    • Sadaivey

      I had a 5/25 coupon emailed to me last week that doesn't expire until today, heading out to CVS will make p&g even better

    • pamela

      I know! I wish I had seen this earlier!!!! I had so mant ECB's, CVS, & manufacturer Q's that it would have made for some free Russell Stover for the kids and MIL…..Oh well, I did get all the P&G for 3.00 that included the tax :)

    • Shelleyschu

      Got mine. Goin' shopping!

    • Bamasaver

      FYI–I got one via e-mail directly from CVS without going thru Facebook. Maybe because they already have my e-mail???

      • Sean

        That is a different one. You can get another one with this offer.

    • Jodilynnstew

      i didn't get the extra bucks for the toothbrushes any idea why?

      • Shelleyschu

        me either. not sure — I got the oral b advantage toothbrushes

        • Emroiderylane

          I had the same problem…found out one rang up for $2.99 and the other for $3.49 so I only got one ECB. Both were exactly the same from the front but had different barcodes. Was told it had to do with when they ordered them and the price they paid. I had them return that transaction and re ring it with two of the same barcode toothbrushes.

      • Perrymanb

        I didn't either but I went back to the store and they printed out my bucks

    • Sean

    • CVS just keeps giving me reasons to love them!

    • I have my list wrote out, if I can do this right, it should cost me $.20 for $45.00 worth of stuff. Now if the darn coupon would just come in!!

      • Kristin

        What is your list? That sounds amazing. I just posted above. I don't know how to do this still learning.

    • tori729

      FYI, I just requested one today so it wasn't just for yesterday. Mine expires 4/10.

    • Kristin

      Ok. I need help. I want to use this coupon. My coupon will expire 4/10. But I want to get a lot for my money. Let me know if this will work. I am still learning. I would appreciate help. I'm trying to show my hubby I can coupon and save us money since we have a baby on the way. Thanks!

      How many ECB would I get?
      Is this good or bad?

      • Jillian

        The $40 is BEFORE any coupons. Just make sure they scan your $5 off BEFORE they scan all your MQs.

    • CouponDiva39

      This will be a GREAT coupon to use w/the P&G ECB deal this week!!! I've been matching up my coupons and will probably start making lunch hour trips the rest of the week to space out some of my transactions!!!

    • Leticiag30

      Can I combine the P&G spend 30 get 10 dollars back with other brands to make it 40.00 and be able to use the $5.00 off $40.00??
