You know you’re a couponer when you stand at the CVS coupon center and hold your breath as it prints and beeps. You’re waiting and hoping that one of the coupons it prints will be good for something you want today.

This week, it’s a massive list of coupons that folks are receiving. Remember to scan your card twice each time you go to get the most coupons, also please know that not everyone will get all of these. Some of you are stuck in boring coupon land and get nothing… if that’s you, I would encourage you to try getting a brand new CVS card. Do not link the two accounts, just be a new person. You should see the coupon machine become magical again for you.

I’ve updated the CVS Ad list with all of these coupons. It makes a money maker on deodorant and 50¢ body wash!

    • kaoscasa

      wow…..didn’t get any of those. I got a $4/20 facial/acne cleanser. I did get a $10/$50 and $5/$15. So that was good.

      • I’ll take the $5 off $15 any day!

        • Wendy Claborn

          I’ve been shopping at CVS for over two years and this week is the first time it’s ever given me a $5 off $15 at the register. I hope it continues

    • brooke s

      I always seem to get the “blah” coupons, but was so excited last night to get $5 off $25 in baby products!

    • Kelley

      This is so confusing and frustrating! I usually get ONE coupon, the one that is advertised as the weekly deal (usually off pop or candy). How does that happen? I understand everyone doesn’t get them all, but it seems crazy that I never get any of them …

      • Ann Horton

        Try scanning your card twice, that’s what I always do.

      • Cathy Jesse Taylor

        I’m about to be someone new. ;)

      • Cherie

        I usually scan my card until it says i’m all out of coupons for the day. Don’t know if that will help, i’m not getting the emails with the good coupons myself so I can understand your frustration

        • michael

          These emails seem to have frequency by which quarter of the year it is. About two of the four ECB quarters, I receive a kick ass amount of awesome coupons, like $5 off $15, $4 off $20, 30%, and then the other two it’s hardly anything.

      Do I have to use my total balance of ECB at Cvs in one transaction? Do I have to use my total balance of UP Rewards in one transaction at Rite-Aid? I am new to this and the cashier at CVS told me I couldn’t use $2 out of the $5 that I have on my card. She said I would have to use it all or lose the remaining $3.

      • kaoscasa

        If it was given you as a $5 reward (ecb) then you have to use it all at once. If you received a $3 and a $2 reward then you could use just one of them. Rite Aid is the same way.

        • Chelsea

          Ok. Thank you very much for your response.

      • boobear

        For Rite Aid…here is what I have done bc of the automatic use of the UP rewards coming off before coupons. A clerk actually suggested it. Ring merchandise up, give coupons and then scan the Rite Aid card…that way you do not use up your rewards before coupons. It has worked for me….HTH. Or, if you do not like the electronic, the cashier can opt you out of the electronic and you can use paper.

        • Chelsea

          So if you do that and have , let’s say you have $2 worth of UP rewards left…….could you save them until another time or would you have to use your whole balance in yhat transaction?

          • boobear

            Only if it was an actual $2 UP reward when you received it. If it was from a $5 UP reward you would have to use the entire $5. But if you had a 5 and a 2….and your total after coupons only used the 5, it would keep your 2 on the card (until it expired) and use it for another transaction.

            • Chelsea

              Ok thanks! I understand now. Thanks to all of the “experienced” couponers that responded :-)

    • mom

      i never, never get those good coupons only things i never buy before or never will buy later, i scan my card not only two times but three or four :( and to make worse the red machine is out of service for more than a week now sooo mad….. boo to them

    • cat

      Hi Jenny, can you please help me with the link to sign up to get the double rewards at cvs? I got that yesterday but i dont know where to sign!!

      • tina

        Please share the link when you receive it.

      • Rebecca

        HI, I got a print out from the redbox in store that said Double your Extracare Bucks….asked cashier about it and she said all I had to do was let her scan my card and the print out and she put it in a return box for company…said it would double my quarterly extra bucks :)…We should get those Oct. 1st…hope this helps

    • chrisMD

      I’m really annoyed that here in MARYLAND at the Maple Lawn CVS, for two weeks in a row the red machine hasn’t printed out the deal advertised in the flier. Didn’t get the paper towels last week or the lousy 12c off the Arizona tea this week. Walked out without buying anything.

    • boz

      I got a 25% of total purchase but it expired on 8/02. Will they still take it?

    • Rebecca

      Got a $2.50/$12 deodorant purchase last week and Free body pouf with any 2 body wash purchase (pouf value up to $2.98)..Got 2 RightGuard body wash at 2/$6 used 2/2 man. Q and forgot about the pouf so the incredibly kind cashier said just forget about that and took the $2.98 off when scanning the store Q which made my total OOP $1.43 for both! Received 2 EB’s , meaning they essentially gave me 2 body washes and 57¢! I <3 CVS!

    • Carrie

      I got a $5/$15 or more purchase

    • Shannon173

      I got a $3 off foundation, powder or blush coupon on this trip. Combine that with 20% shopping pass in newspaper–the Physician’s Formula was a money maker with $7 ECB back.

    • KimO254

      I have noticed that some of the coupons depend on past puchases. Also, today our ad said $3 coupon off Coke product printing off coupon machine, it didn’t. I ask the cashier, she said it was extra bucks, not a coupon. I showed her the ad and I got $3 off, plus $3 in extra bucks too. Today I walked out with about $50 merchandise for $30, $12 ECB and a coupon for $10 off a $50 purchase and a load of coupons from the machine
      !! Yay Me!

      • DanniLynn

        Some maybe…but I have gotten an insane amount of coupons for purchases that I have never made in the past. Not even close to any. lol. Loads of feminine coupons and now, Incontinence products! I have so many Tena cvs MCM coupons that, soon, I may not even have to use manufactures to get the MM deal. It’d be nice if they could throw some make-up coupons my way. ^.^#

        • kaoscasa

          yea…..I get lots of make-up coupons and NEVER buy make up!! Odd….

    • Rachel

      anybody having trouble accessing their online accounts!?

    • Cindy Henderson

      I got a $5/$15 or more purchase, $3 off vitamin, $3 off Revlon, and 2 $1 off chewy antacids. I got the 2 color revlon polish and got $.60 profit, got two boxes of cereal, 2 gummy vites, and 2 antacids. All said and done $3.20!
