We all know about the great Extra Care Bucks deals at CVS offers each week, but did you know you can also save money with their CVS brand?  I’m normally not big on store brands, but if they are a better deal and work the same as a national brand product, that’s where I head. Gold Emblem, Just the Basics, and Caliber are a few of the CVS store brands that deliver quality products like batteries, school supplies, and personal care items.

Last week I found myself needing batteries last minute and the CVS Gold Emblem batteries were B1G1 at a much cheaper price than the name brand batteries one tag over.  CVS Brand products are typically 30% cheaper than the national brand equivalents and they often go on sale too.

CVS is giving away an awesome Back to School package filled CVS brand school supplies, snacks, and personal care products. In the package you’ll find a backpack, notebooks, markers, pens, pencils, highlighters, glue sticks, snacks, tissues and more!

If you don’t win though, you can still save on these products and more when you shop at CVS with your CVS ExtraCare Card.  Of course, don’t forget to scan your card at the ExtraCare Coupon Center to get extra coupons when you shop.
