There are a few fun clearance deals in CVS this week.  These are being found in a number of stores, so hopefully you can find them in your area.  Don’t forget that you can still get a $3 off $15 coupon to use on any CVS purchase.

  • Craig 4GB MP3 player ringing up $9.99
    Plus you’ll get a $10 ECB back when you purchase it.  Limit 2.
    These are advertised this week for $49.99 so my guess is that this is a pricing error that will be fixed.
  • Zhu Zhu Pets & Accessories 75% off
    (makes many of them $1 or less)
  • Cheer Laundry Detergent, $1.99
    -$2 off Cheer Detergent, RP 2/19
    (makes it FREE)

    (makes it 49¢ ea.)

See all the advertised deals this week at CVS.

      All Zhu Zhu’s at TRU B&M were 90% in Warner Robins.  At least the ninja looking ones.  $10 accessories $1.  The big fighting thing was $5.  We didn’t get any, but, it might help somebody.

    • Laurel

      My CVS had ZhuZhu accessories (no pets, only tracks,etc) for $1.00. All of them were the same price, $1, even if the box was marked 24.99. We do not have ZhuZhu pets, but I got a few track/tunnel sets for my son who loves making tracks for his Hot Wheels.

    • TraceyMH

      I picked up a Projector TV Reg. $99.99 for $20.  We tried it outside on the house and it looked great- I see neighborhood movie night in our future!  Also got a 3D gaming console Reg. $59.99 for $4.99- I have not tried it out yet. I got some Zhu Zhu Pets for $1 each and the MP3 players where free after gift card-although I have read that it is a glitch that would be fixed today. I’m glad I got mine yesterday.

      •  Was the Projector TV at CVS?  I will need to go look around my CVS for one of these…

        • TraceyMH

          Yes it is at CVS

      • Tennille

        I bought 2 of the “knock off” Xbox Kinect ones for 4.99 and they are going back to the store.  I guess you get what you pay for sometimes.  I thought my 2 year old would have fun with it, but I couldn’t get it to work very well.

    • guest

      I bought one this morning and it was priced for 9.99 until April 3.  It had a tag, so I don’t believe it is an error. 

      • Ed823

        did you get $10 ECB back, making it free?

        • guest

          Yes, I did.  My CVS lady said it was an awesome deal!

    • Mnn803

      i want to get the mp3 player but i am afraid they’ll change the price…

      • TraceyMH

        They are going to stay $9.99 til they sell out. The only difference is they are not going to give a Gift Card.

        • Couponing_mom3

          I got two this morning and they rang up 9.99 still plus got the CVS Cash Card!! :)

    • SchoonCR

      Had my hopes up on the Cheer detergent yesterday when the other blogs posted that, but it is not on clearance in any of our 4 stores around town.  :(

    • ahlers0514

      My CVS also had all of the Licensed silly bandz (Disney, etc) regular price 4.99, on sale for .10!!!!  Stock up for stocking stuffers and Christmas boxes!!

      • Kblnana

        Here in Coastal SC, silly bandz are .10, too. I also got 2 MP3 players for $9.99 with a $10.00 CVS cash card. I have grandchildren birthdays coming up soon. 

    • Dee

      printable list not working

    • Cassie726

      Also at CVs the Craig digital Camcorder with camera is marked down to $9.99 (no ECB’s or cash cards attached) just a good price. I picked up 2 this morning…Happy Shopping

    • Alyson

      My SS 1/29 didn’t have the Colgate Rebate form; does anyone have it and not plan on using it?  Please contact me if so! Thanks so much!

    • Sporksoma

      I got the mp3 player for $9.99 with the $10 gift card last night!  I turned around and used the gift cards to buy baby formula.  woohoo!

    •  I snagged the last projector tv they had… can’t wait to hook it up and have family movie night…

      Also grabbed a few ZhuZhu tracks for $1 each.  I had my 3 yr old with me, and she kept squealing for joy, she was so excited about getting them.  She even had the clerks laughing over her “I LOVE THEM”  rants… :o)

    • Mandi

      Not a mistake on the MP3 player.. They are no longer going to be carring the Craig items. They are also not exchanging or refunding any of the clearance items. I got a plug and play video game for 4.99 it was regularly 49.99.. Good for the kids to play with in their rooms without moving the xbox in there

    • Katie

      found the mp3 player at my store and price checked it, scanned for $9.99.  Went ahead and purchased it, got my gift card.  Hoping to go back without kids and see the other clearance items!

    • Paul B.

      Went to 3 CVS’s this morning. The first one had one MP3 player left. I got it for $9.99 but did not get the $10 gift card. That stinks since everyone else seems to have gotten it. The CVS’s here in Charlotte don’t carry the Cheer detergent so that was a bummer especially since I made a second trip to try and get it.

      • Paul B.

        I did not get a $10 gift card!! 

        • Shoppergirl000

           Where are you located? It might be a location specific thing if their systems aren’t all the same.

          • AP

            I thought the gift card was for purchasing 2 (or at least that what it is for the other Craig mp3 players).

    • Ava

      I went to CVS this morning and they had one MP3 player left. It rang up for 9.99 but the clerk wouldn’t sell it to me. She said that she was told to pull them off the shelf until the price was fixed.

      • justin julian

        That sucks :(

      • mimi

        I would tell them to call corporate.  One of my stores called corporate to find ot why one of the stores had them ringing up $9.99 and the ones at their store ws ringing up $49.99 and they said it was because they had some older ones left over from Christmas and they were already priced $9.99.

      • Couponing_mom3

        Sounds like that Clerk wanted it for themselves.

    • 3monkeysmom

      Stopped by CVS today and the cashier said the $9.99 MP3 player is DEFINITELY a pricing error and they would have to charge you the $49.99 listed in the sales ad. Supposed to be fixed by tomorrow.

      • mimi

         No, one of my stores called corporate to find ot why one of the stores had them ringing up $9.99 and the ones at their store ws ringing up $49.99 and they said it was because they had some older ones left over from Christmas and they were already priced $9.99.

    • Jnn_horan

      I don’t think it was a pricing error on the mp3 player. Turns out it was on clearance at 9.99 to begin with, so since it was also on the 10.00 card deal for this week, the register was prompted to spit out the 10.00 gift card.  

      • justin julian

        I agree

    • Sprose

      I got 2 mp3 players-touch screen-regularly 89.99 for 9.99 each with $10 ecb back on EACH!   These are on clearance. My daughters will be so excited.

    • Sonic

      I went to my two CVS no luck all gone same with cheer. arrgghhhh.

    • Majetsi

      It seems a lot of the games and electronics are on sale today.  No luck on the Vivitar Digital Camera though it rang up at regular price.  :-(

      I just got

      (1) 7? Color Lcd $19.99

      (2) Wireless Air 60 games $4.99 Each

      (2) Wireless TV hunting games $4.99 Each

      Used $16.99 EB from previous coupon run

      Paid $22.96 OOP!!!!!!!

      Saved $$250.00 after store sales and EB

    • ireneY

      Didn’t find MP3 player or Cheer on clearance at my store. Oh well…

    • LB

      I couldn’t find the MP3 players anywhere!  I even called around and one store said they had them, I went and it was the wrong one (priced $39.99).   :(  I am so sad!

      • justin julian

        the mp3 players had no marking tags or clearance signs you just had to know which ones to get! Even the cashier was like wow to me im gonna get that last one and i was like no i am lol!!

      • C83lopez

        maybe because greedy people rack up 15

      • jaqueen

        I had the previlege of experiencing the same.  Drove 30miles to get there and find out the person I spoke with on the phone was looking at the wrong one (even thought I said it was in this week’s ad). :-( too

    • Itnoagm

      The projectors are $19.99 from $99.99

    • justin julian

      i racked up 15 mp3 players :)

      • Guest

        how do you manage to get  when the limit is 2?

        • Guest

          how do you manage to get  15 when the limit is 2?

          • Mamaberry

            I think it’s someone making a comment just to get people mad. Don’t know if it’s legit or not… don’t give it the time of day… in my opinion :)

            • Schankia

              You can purchase as many as you want you only get cards for 2 of them

      • GDR

        That is why so many were gone!  Leave some for others please!

      • lizz

         wow, not like. others would have appreciated one for themselves instead of just driving to all stores in town and coming out empty handed. From what i read, not all of them are working, but still. 15 is a little selfish, no? plus you’d have to have 8 CVS cards to get that many, which is ridiculous in itself.

        • MS. SHUG

          No Justin Julian never said anything about getting any EB, they could have just used one card.  You can buy as many as you want to on your card.

    • Ginalshelton

      I did get the $9.99 MP3 player and the $10 gift card which is awesome…but I am having trouble getting any songs on it. And the little CD (it’s a mini) won’t do anything when I put it in.. Anybody else that got these having the same problem or do you have a solution?

      • mimi

        It is not compatible with vista or windows 7. I do know that.

        • mimi

          Or atleast it is what the company said

    • Stacyannw

      I was able to get 4 mp3 players 9.99 each all 4 printing the 10.00 gc, a portable dvd player 19.99, projector 19.99, hunting game 4.99, motion game 4.99, 5 12packs of coke products, 4 5ct Zyrtec, 3 pediacare, and 4 packs of hershey kisses between today and yesterday spent out of pocket 46.65 and saved 634.24.  I also have 2 10.00 gc left and some ecb :)

      • Ginalshelton

        Stacy let me know if you have luck downloading songs..I am having a hard time with it.

    • mimi

      To use the MP3 player, you have to have windows xp, windows 98, and the lower ones, it it not compatiable on vista or windows 7. That is what the company sais when I called to see if they had any driver updates.

    • Michelle Queen

      I am having problems as well and wondering now if it is even worth the time..I have a mac and the cd that comes with it is windows 98 and says not supported for a mac so the only way you can get songs to it is through an sd. I also have a windows 7 comp though and was able to get them on by using real player, dont use the cd unless you have windows 98; the touchscreen isnt very good. I know you cant expect much for free..but Im dissapointed I told others about this and they got it and think its awful..so Im not sure if the mp3 player at least is worth it.

      • LucyBee

        The mp3 players are 2 years old. Look at the date on the back. As for downloading the music and vids, some types are not supported. On the very last page on the manual is a list of ones they do support. The music did fine on mine but had problems with the vids. I have to re-do them to the supported files.

    • Kim

      I seen a few post that everyone who purchased the MP3 player for 9.99 don’t seem to be happy with it.  Besides having issues downloading music, how are the other features working, like the touchscreen??  thanks

      • guest

        I cannot get any songs to download and play……not sure what to do.  The touchscreen works fine, and we can even download pictures.  The owner’s manual obviously was written by a foreigner, because the english grammar is incorrect.  We were excited to get 3 of these for free, but it is useless if they won’t work!

      • Couponing_mom3

        I got all my songs to download on mine. I think it is a pretty good product for FREE…. :) 

        • guest

          How did you get them to download?  Any helpful hints?

          • Lexcher

            All that I did after connecting cord to computer on mine was go to the music that has been downloaded on my computer and and right click then hit send to drive e and it downloaded in seconds   I’m not very good with computers so I hope my explanation made sense. 

      • Tristansmommy120910

        I got mine out, charged it up. Played with it for a minute worked fine. Put it down hubby came home and all of a sudden the touchscreen will not work. I just hope the other doesn’t have the same issue.

    • AP

      The mp3 price was correct. All the CVS’s around me were out. A mgr informed me that these have actually been out for a while, and actually came out 2 Christmases ago. I did actually did get A LOT of detergent! Arm & Hammer 50oz, ALL small & mighty 32oz, 6 Gain powder detergent 45oz, 2 Method pump detergents 10oz, and 4 Purex 3-in-1 = all $1.67 EACH! After q’s for everything except the A&H & Purex, and $12 ECB, I paid oop $4.18!!!!!!!!!!! Whoo hoo. Thank you Jenny as I never would have gone except to look for the mp3 player.

      • AP

        Alpharetta GA (no MP3 players in some CVS’s in John’s Creek & Suwanee).

    • Couponing_mom3

      I am so stoked for the deals that I got today. Thanks to this website I ended up getting 3 of the mp3 players. I also got a different mp3 player for 9.99 but didn’t get the 10 CVS cash card.

    • Mrsnmm

      Did anyone find the digital camera’s for 9.99?

      • ShaRae

        Yes, my CVS in Florida had at least twelve yesterday.  I was able to purchase two for my grandsons.

      • jaqueen

        My CVS in north Florida still has them marked at $59.99 & $39.99.  My sister got one for me in Iowa.  The store there did a price override because the cashier knew they were suppose to be on clearance (Christmas merchandise).  I’ll be going back to my local store to request the same.

        • Susan

          You should check again.  The little video cameras scan $59.99 with the price gun and at the coupon machine, but when you scan your card (like you are checking out) at the register and then the item, the price drops to $9.99.  Happened at 2 CVS’s today for me!

    • Firepeople

      At two CVS’s the only B1G1 Colgate Total Advanced Toothpaste was the 7.6 oz and that was priced at $4.99 and all the 4oz was marked at $3.49…totaly bummed!

    • guest

      I didn’t have time to check those deals yesterday, not sure we have those deals in Savannah, GA area. Would you mind sharing your general location if you got those awesome deals? It would help other people avoiding driving around to look for those deals if they don’t exist in their area in the first place, thanks a lot!

      • jaqueen

        The deals vary by location (from experience), but it could very well be in your area as well.  I live in North Florida & the MP3s were on sale here; just couldn’t find any in stock. I inquired about getting a rainbcheck but was told if I did, the raincheck would be for the sale price of $49.99.

    • Cna19north

      I live in Virgina close to the north carolina line and went to the cvs here in VA and the one in NC and they said that it is not going on sale for 1.99

      • Dtcox1

    • momto2

      You can use the $2.00/2 essencce of beauty Q in the CVS beauty magazine toward the robes..makes them $1.99 each

      • Dtcox1

         thank you got two today for gifts later they was 1.99 each with coupons for gifts later

    • jaqueen

      After searching all the stores in my area (going to some & calling others), I finally called my mom in South Florida & sister in Iowa to see if they could find the deals.  Thankfully my sister was able to get me the MP3 and the video recorder for me.  The video recorders are ringing up $59.99 & $39.99 here in my N. Florida store.

      • Susan

        You should check again.  The little video cameras scan $59.99 with the price gun and at the coupon machine, but when you scan your card (like you are checking out) at the register and then the item, the price drops to $9.99.  Happened at 2 CVS’s today for me!

    • Nasenior0306

      People can get he digital cameras for 9.99 but you will not get the 10 money card

    • Dtcox1

    • Dsci2003

      got mp3 player today but didn’t print $10 GC. still a great deal though

      • guest

         Corporate has sent out a note to the stores that the $49.99 price is incorrect.  The mp3 players should be $9.99 but you will need to purchase $30 to get a free $10 gift card.  It is posted in some stores now.

    • Gklee92

      At walgreens and cvs there arm and hammer has a coupon on it for a mail in rebate to make the product free!

    • C_hakes

      My CVS had silly bands on clearance for 10 cents.  Picked up a bunch of them to use for Operation Christmas Child.  They are Disney and other cartoon type.

      • Madisonanita

        I did the exact same thing. They had baseball, musical notes, all kinds of the bracelets. I bought all 70 of them. When I went back, they had the necklaces on for 10cents. I bought all 60 of those! $13 total. Saved about $380 bucks!!! : )

    • Guest

      The CVS in Wilmington, NC on Military Cutoff has a bunch of zhu zhu stuff left (although no animals).  They took me to the stock room where most of it is located.  They also had one projector for $19.99 on a table in the front.  I was tempted but don’t really need a projector!  Hope this helps someone.

    • Ehouston

      what size is the cheer???  is it not adversited ? 

      • Melpink531

        Not sure. I’ve looked at the 2 cvss we have here and neither have Cheer… boo. Lol

    • KathyCollins

      I picked up a robe for $3 a projector for $20 and an 3.5″ LED tv for $20   I wanted the 7″ DVD tv but they were sold out…

    • Vanita

      we went to our c.v.s pharmacy and tried to get the mp3 player for 9.99 and the 10 dollar cvs gift card and they said that if it rings up 49.99 thn they will give the gift card but if its 9.99 they wont give the 10 dollor gift card

      • Christie

         call cvs hot line, they can not do that

    • Mcclellanda79

      My store in Belton SC had all zhu zhu items for $1(no matter what the original price was). Makes for a great deal if you purchase the more expensive playsets. I picked up 2 today.

    • cvs in western mn doesnt carry cheer. i called around.

    • Melissasbiz

      The Dr Pepper 12pk IS 3 for $10, but NOT included on the Reg Rewards deal.  I am so disappointed!
