CVS April ECB Deals

on 3.30.2009 at 4:58pm

This post may contain affiliate links. Read our disclosure here.

The CVS April Month Long ECB deals start on Wednesday 4/1. Here is a list of coupon matches for most of the deals. I only recommend getting items that are free or close to it now, and wait for other items to come on sale during the month. So far I can only see ads for half of the month so I’m not able to give you a full picture on when things might come on sale.

I do know that Huggies diapers will be on sale with ECB (buy $25 get $10 ECB) the week of 4/4!! (If you even need them after all the free packs we got at Walgreens.)

If you are new to CVS and this is all greek to you, go read the getting started guide.

    • Tracy

      I tried the Natural Dentist Gum rinse and did not get the 8ecb???? How do I explain that to a cashier or manager if it isn’t advertised anywhere?

    • Dianne


      It may not start until April 1 by what Jenny posted at the top.

      I was thinking of doing that deal too, but I wonder where you get the rebate form.

      Thanks, Jenny! Your site has saved me so much in a short period of time.

    • Tracy

      Oh my gosh if I would have read the whole thing I would have made some money now I lost $4.00.:(

    • Tracy

      The rebate form is posted up above.
      Here it is again for yhttp://thenaturaldentist.com/site/images/stories/documents/r1_nd_rebatecard_hr2.pdfou

    • Jess

      Icant get the $2 coupon for the natural dentist to work. Anyone else having problems?

    • ShanR

      return the rinse

    • Jimmy

      Anyone have any extra Neutrogena $2 off Neutrogena Sun care coupons that they can spare? I can’t find them at any of the locations posted.


    • Tracy

      OK if I was good at math I could have figured out right away that the deal wasn’t bad. I didn’t loose money I used $4 in coupons and I get $10 back so It ends up being free— I just didn’t make $8. Free is still good!

    • Gwenn

      The rebate form for the Natural Dentist is right at the top of the article for CVS about the deals. It can be printed from there. I live in FL and have not found this product yet. Does anyone know how I can find out where to check for stores that may carry it?


    • Jennifer

      My friend has taken the glucose monitors and diabetes kits to local nursing homes, and they were delighted with the donation!

    • Tina

      The Claritin ECB is for 10ct and the internet printable is for 20ct or larger. Will that work?

    • MiniMidgMom

      I have seen the Chloraseptic Allergen block elsewhere for $10.00 regular price but can’t remember where.If anybody can find a coupon for this please post asap. Love this stuff and need to buy a new tube this week anyway!

    • John

      I just bought the Natural Dentist product and did not get the ECB either. I have the 2 coupons and got the 10 rebate but did not got the ECB. I Still got it for free but the $8 ECB would have been nice. WHat is going on here? I did not see it in the sales ad.

      • Jenny

        John it is on page 3 of Monthly Extra Care Book, you can see the full book here:


        If you call cVs corporate they can put the ECB on your card to print the next time you are in the store or the manager of the store you were at can force the ECB to print using the offer number that is below the picture in the monthly book. You can find monthly books near the front entrance to your store with the newspapers.

    • Jessica

      Can I stack a manufacturer’s coupon with a CVS coupon at CVS? In the CVS reinventing beauty magazine, there is a $2 off CVS coupon and a $2 off manufacture coupon for the softsoap ensemble. I bought 2 magazines, so would the soaps then be free, and then a profit with the ECB? Thanks for your help, I have not shopped CVS before, but I’m looking forward to it!

      • Jenny

        You can stack them together. Was one of the coupons in the actual magazine and not in the coupon insert? I just have the coupons from the insert and that one is a manufacturer coupon. Where is the store one in the magazine? I’ll have to actually buy one.

    • Jessica

      thanks for the quick response. It is in the actual magazine. Between pages 62 and 65. There is also manufacturer coupons of $1.50 off softsoap scrub body wash and $1.50 off irish spring body wash before pg 43. I will hold onto those for later. These came out of the one with Jennifer Aniston on the cover.
      You are a blessing!

    • Shannon

      The Natural Dentist deal worked for me. (Those having trouble–make sure that you are buying the GUM rinse). Sent my $10 rebate form in yesterday too. Love the deals that you post SS!!! I saved $90 at Publix last week following your suggestions!!!! ;) Great to save $$$–and having a good time doing it!!!!

    • ashley

      I wanted to let you all know that I found a coupon for the Afrin pure seasalt on their website for $3.00! It’s $14.99 right now @ CVS, so if you buy it now, it will be $7.99 after the coupon & $3 in ECB. If your like me, I had to have it now!!! It works!! If you wait til the week of 4/4 it will be on sale for $9.99 with $3 off and $3 ECB it will end up being around 3.99!! So it’s worth the purchase if you have allergies/sinus problem.

    • diane

      I couldn’t get the dentist deal to print from that link, nor did the rebate print, a blank page came up.

      Thanks for any help….

    • John

      Just wanted to let everyone know that i called cvs and they credited the $4 ECB per bottle of the Natural Dentist Product to my CVS card. Yes! I said $4 ECB per bottle. Use the $2.00 off coupon plus the mail in rebate and it is an incredible deal. Get $8 ECB. MAKE MONEY!!! Hoorah!!

    • Brandi

      Just a quick not to tell you about my trip to CVS today. They had some great clearance finds. I got a hair clipper set for $1.99 with lots of accessories. Also 2 memory foam pillows for 99¢ each regularly $19.99 and the Rubbermaid Take Alongs were 99¢. They also had a foot spa you put water in and it heats and massages your feet on clearnce for $5!!


    • beth

      I was just wandering what you do with the glucose meter if you don’t need it?

    • Jock

      So will CVS let you use the same coupon for the same product in the same trasaction? Many of the coupons say one per……
      Just a question from a newbie.

    • lindy

      We donate the glucose meters to our church. There are a few nurses that attend and they give them to the ppeople who need but can’t afford them. It IS quite a blessing for us to pass on our savings to others!!!! Kind of like a GIANT coupon fairy!!

    • Julieann

      You can donate the glucose meter to a local women’s or homeless shelter, a nursing home, or other low-income health care facility. Some churches also take donations like this to give to those in need or missionaries.

      Health Departments might take them too if they’re sealed in the package; I am not sure about that one though so call first.

    • Is it just me or have the CVS ECB Deals grown thinner and thinner ? What is going on ? We had a test market here in Florida awhile back that I boycotted because there were no ECB’s in a couple of flyers !

    • Jen

      Hey guys. New to all of this and somebody probably already mentioned this but just in case…. I bought the Accu-check, got the 9.99 ECB and then filled out the rebate form inside the box and will receive a check for the 9.99 I spent on it. Making a profit of $9.99. Thanks for all of your hard work Jenny! This is very exciting stuff!

    • donna

      JDRF (Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation) will gladly take the glucose monitors and give them to those in need. http://www.jdrf.org – (I am diabetic;-)ADA (American Diabetes Association) will also take them- thanks for donating!

    • donna

      glucose meter – continued
      contact your local branch (www.jdrf.org) and you can drop them off. If you have a ton they may even pick them up- they may even meet you /pick them up.

    • barbara

      hi everyone!
      love the site!!!thanks Jenny for your hard work. i just wanted to clear one thing. I just did the natural dentist rinse deal and found out (i didn’t get my ECB)that the limit is 3 not 5 so take it into the account guys.

    • margie

      what a crappy CVS month of specials. glad i am stocked up on stuff.

    • Penni

      Just a warning about the Natural Dentist Mouthwash. The deal worked great for me and so I was totally excited about it – until I tasted it!! Holy cow! That stuff is gnarly! It is the most disgusting thing I have ever tried! They only had one flavor left at my CVS – Peppermint twist. I really think I am going to have to pour it out. I got my ECB’s but I lost my receipt so I can’t do the rebate. My bad for throwing out my receipt!

    • marcey

      LOL @ Penni! You got that right! I took a swig and gagged on it..My Gosh it’s Nasty!

    • tonya


      I got the accu check meter and it says the mail in rebate is for $40! Are you seeing this also? Sounds too good to be true.

      thanks for your time,

      • Jenny


        On the meter rebates normally they will not send you the rebate if you got it for free. If they do send you the rebate you will only get $9.99 since that was the purchase price. Good Luck and let me know what you get.

    • Cindy Chen

      The Natural Dentist’s $10 Mail in Rebate wyb 2 products isn’t pulling up on the manufacturer’s website any more. Is there anyway you can post this as a file to download from your website?

    • Esmelda

      I just came here to post the same question as Cindy.

    • Ali

      Can anyone purchase the meter? I just assumed that you would need a script? Are they behind the pharmacy counter or out in the open? I would like to purchase one to donate.

      • Jenny

        Yes anyone can purchase a glucometer. As a RN I recommend everyone have one in their house. The meters come with 10 strips and is great to keep in case for some reason something goes haywire. You will have it and can check. A good friend of mine had one and ended up needing it one morning when her 4 yr old would not wake up. Her sugar was extremely low and she was able to know what was going on!

    • Chris

      FYI-The natural dentist rebate campaign is over. Bummer, too bad I waited too long, but I guess if it is disgusting it is not too big of a loss!
