      Buy one skinny cow candy bar, get one free printed for me.  If I use this coupon with my MQ for skinny cow, would they both be free?

      • Ktavolley03

        yes, worked for me today! think its only up to 0.99, and the bars were 1.19 at my store, but 2 for 0.40 was great!!

        Thanks for the reminder! Found it in 7/31RP.

      Printed the free magazine coupon last week but CVS still doesn’t have any magazines.

    • Squirrel123

      In Rolesville NC they were printing the candy bar coupon so I got mine

    • Essie Lee

      I have inquired about the reinventing beauty magazines every since I have been couponing (about 2 years) and finally a new manage told me that they never get them.  She even tried to get me one from another more popular drugstore but was unsucessful.  It just makes me irrated to get a coupon for a free magazine when they are not available.

      the best ever I just got a $829.99 iPad2 for only $103.37 and my mom got a $1499.99 HDTV for only $251.92, they are both coming with USPS tomorrow. I would be an idiot to ever pay full retail prices at places like Walmart or Bestbuy. I sold a 37″ HDTV to my boss for $600 that I only paid $78.24 for. I use

      I got the free Dove chocolate. It’s my son’s favorite, he was excited about his surprise. And he has no idea it was FREE!! I’m hoping to get the cough drop coupon, I’m starting to stock up for Flu and Cold season.

    • Arc3kids

      tried to get my free magazine and they don’t have a clue what it is .

      • Dianna

        The Reinventing Beauty Magazine is something usually found near the makeup on a side isle and costs like $1.99 but it usually has a few useful coupons in it.  Ask the cashier about it if they are out.  Many have no clue so ask a manager if he’s available. 

    • Dorothyboyce58

      Free is not free in NJ. CVS says the coupons are worth 79 cents but the candy bars are $1.19.

      • nbeane173

        we did this yesterday. they SCAN .79 cents but are not tagged! so just have the cashier check them. it works on the dove bars. but we only got the milky way caramel to work, not regular milkyway

      • Anonymous

        The Dove was 79 cents at my store making it free but the Milky Way was $1.19 I believe

    • The_Deal_Hound

      Manager at my CVS says that they never know what the coupons in the coupon machine will be so they don’t know to have ordered Dove candy bars for example to meet the demand.  So then customers get the coupons and there’s no product to get.

      • Diannascoupons

        Ask them if they would substitute another candy bar.  I’ve shopped many diff. CVS’s and they always volunteer to substitute without my asking. 

      • Tishness1509

        they are to sub it out or write a raincheck to use with the expired coupon when they come in again and no we dont know what the coupon center is going to print out untill we get our coupons ourselves or customers show us their coupons 

    • Tarajo88

      Same in Georgia! The coupon only covers up to .79 cents and the candy bars are $1.19

      • Restore07

        my coupon printed for 1.19

      • Suzanne

        I bought a 1.19 candy bar and the q came off 1.19

    • Anonymous

      NO Reinventing Beauty Magazine in at least 9 months. 

    • guest

      The CVS I went to adjusted the price of the Dove candy bar down to .79

      • Tishness1509

        the candy bar is supposed to ring up at .79 unadvertised price if the cvs card is scanned first there should be no need for them to modify the price 

    • Ktavolley03

      also had a 1.50 off any U by Kotex product.  They are on sale for 3.50 this week, combined the coupon with $2 off (sent by mail from CVS last week)– made it free!

      • Was that the 36 count or higher boxes?  My friend got the coupon from the red machine and hers said the larger boxes.

        • Ktavolley03

          it only excluded 18 count liners, thats what the coupon from the red machine said.

      • Crafty_cat_86

        I knew I got one of those!  I’ve been racking my brain b/c I thought I remembered getting one in the mail, but can’t find it anywhere!  I’ll have to look harder ;)

      Got the free Dove bar coupon yesterday-yummy!!  I ate it last night was was a very happy woman!  :-)  Didn’t get the free mag coupon…my local CVS’s never have them anyway.  

    • Hboisseau

      loved it!  AND I had 2 $1 off Orbit that printed last week which is b1g1 free this week.  I got overage on candy–can’t beat that!

      I’ve been to 5 different CVS’s since I got the free Reginventing Beauty Mag Coupon & none of them  have any!  I’ve been told various things about when each store will be getting some.

      • Tishness1509

        they are not going to be printing any more of the mag’s and only have the coupon out there to get rid of the old sorry 

      • Ketta

        I went to a CVS once when I had a raincheck.  I checked several CVS stores before visiting this one in the space of 2 weeks.  The item on the raincheck was never in any of the stores.  My raincheck was about to expire so I explained the situation and the lady at the cash register then called around to other CVS stores and made arrangements for the items I wanted brought to that store and I picked them up a few days later. Even received all of the ECBs without a problem at all. My experience has been the folks are willing and want to help a customer.

          Rainchecks from CVS aren’t supposed to have an expiration date.

    • Anonymous

      The milkyway caramel were .79 @ Commerce GA, thus free. The mags were old, coupons in them expired back in June. Mine also printed q for free always pantiliners but of course the shelf was empty. They were out of the carefree. There was no A&W rootbeer (my sons fav) & the store refused to give a raincheck???? Pampers size newborn & size 1 were empty & the employee would not go look in the back at first, eventually he did & returned to say they were out. I will be contacting corp. to complain on this store.

    • SB58

      Southern Savers stated that CVS has an in store $2.00 off Pampers Coupon.  Where and how do you get it?  Anyone know where it is?  It was not in the CVS flyer.

        Go to the coupon center and scan your card, it might print out for you

    • I got a $1 off Pampers Coupon!

    • Joy

      Got my free Dove candy bar yesterday. I love CVS

    • lipps462

      Dove candy is free at my store, but the coupon is only good for up to 70 cents so milky way was not free but 20 cents.
      None the less got the goods for candy.
      Coffee was about the only good deal this week.
      399 – 50 cent Manufacture Q
      349 for 11 oz
      so got 4… 44 oz
      Usually lowest here in Fl is 6 per pound for coffee 2.75 lbs are 16.50
      Save about 3.50..
      not so much. good but coffee is coffee..
      plus the candy..

    • I got the free dove/milkt way AND I got a $1 face cleaning wipes

    • Timothywmorgan

      The candy bar is a 79 cent value and the store price is 119. so not free… the stores only have the spring issue of the magazine. not good for cvs…. the stores are having to explain the companies missed try to give away something that was not in the stores.

      • jennifer

        My CVS told me the same thing but it rang up .79 so it was free

        • yeah, Mine rang up at .79 – the workers at my store were really helpful in making sure the deals work. 

          • Robin

            Yeah, mine rang up $1.19, but the cashier voided it out and rerang it in as .79 to make it free.

              our cvs did the same :)

    • Nancy

      In addition to the free Milky Way or Dove candy bar and the $0.50/1 Big Chill Water CRT, the red machine printed a $1/2 boxes of Gold Emblem Crackers for me.

    • Ephillips09

      The reason that the regular Milky Way isn’t ringing up free is because it isn’t the right amount. The regular Milky Way is over 2 ounces and the coupon is for up to 1.9 ounce candy bar. I got the Milky Way caramel bar for free!

      • Anonymous

        They told me I had to get the dove bar because someone did not enter the right milky way in the system for free.

      I just called the CVS 1-800 number and the girl (who was VERY friendly) told me that they’d just received a memo saying the company who is shipping out the Reinventing Beauty magazines were behind in schedule, and that they should be hitting the shelves within the next couple of days (I guess it depends on where they’re being shipped from and your store location). So be on the lookout!

      Also, I asked why I wasn’t receiving emails with coupons for a $ amount off total purchase, when it seems like many others get them all the time. All I get are the CVS website emails that advertise online sales. Turns out they didn’t have the right email address in their system. They had an old one! I didn’t realize that every time I put my email addy in the CVS website, it wasn’t updating the one they have on file for my CVS card. Not sure if anyone else out there is in this boat, but thought I’d let you know in case you haven’t updated your CVS information in awhile. They also still had my maiden name, and I could have sworn I changed that a LONG time ago. Anyway, this is a reminder to make sure your card information is updated, or you might be missing out!

    • Jen_poppet

      i got $2 off ob tampons, which was perfect timing because that was what I shopping for!  also got the free candy bar – bought a dove peanut bar and hide it in my husbands laptop briefcase for a surprise today :)

    • Destiny691966

      I just wnet to my local CVS and tried to get my free reinventing beaty mag and the manager told me they no longer put these out and they stopped before they started printing the coupons.

      • Anonymous

        You may want to call the company’s 800 number and tell them what the manager said. When I called yesterday morning to tell them that most of the stores around my area didn’t carry them, she told me to call back and let them know which locations didn’t have them, because they wanted them to be available in all stores. She DID say, however, that once they’re in the stores they sell out quickly.

    • Eae1959

      I found the magazine the coupons all expired in June….bummer….

    • Tammy7506

      My Dove wasn’t free, I had to pay the amount that was covered by $0.79.
      And there no new beauty club magazine in MI and KY.

    • Adgwecho

      My Candy bar wasn’t free either…nice, but if they are going to tout it as a “free” item coupon, then they really need to take into account the cost of the item

    • Arc3kids

      Got my candy bar!

    • Revcoupons11

      I got the 1.40 off Kotex U, I was wondering if a MF coupon for 1.40 off any kotex would work, or does it have to specify U on it to work?

    • Tmoring

      I already got the “free” Dove candy bar, and today I got a coupon from the center for $3 off any hair color (of which I use at least every 4 weeks or so) and one brand was on sale (two in one package together) for $5…I had to get two packages. That was $7 for FOUR packages of hair color that generally is that much for just one. I love it!!

    • Tmoring

      …and another FREE coupon from the center, forgot…choice of Ritz Crackerful 6 oz. or Newton Thins 10.5 oz.   yummy!!!!!
