Hurry to Facebook and take a short quiz on the CVS Facebook page.  They want to see what type of Christmas Shopper you are.  At the end of the quiz they will email you a 20% off coupon for your next trip to CVS!

I’m not surprised at all to find that I was deemed “Earl E. Bird”… that’s the best way to save!

Don’t miss all the crazy deals coming up next week for Black Friday.

I am still waiting on my emailed coupon, so I’ll add any exclusions and expiration dates soon.

(thanks Kristen!)

    • I got mine and it says Limit one per customer. Get 20% off your entire purchase with your ExtraCare card. Excludes sale items. Which is a bummer :( Limtied time offer-Valid one time only and mine expires 11/21 I just got it. Also excludes, promotional offerings,”buy more and save” promotions, discontinued merchandise, milk, bread, alcohol, gift products, newspapers, magazines, Netbook and Sylvanina, prescriptions, milk bread, alcohol, gift cards, money orders, lottery cards

      I love this site!!!

    • Southerngirl0028

      yep got mine yesterday, no sale items! :(

    • Anonymous

      I got mine pretty fast and didn’t have to take a quiz. I wonder if I could buy ANYthing that applies to this!

    • happy couponer

      thanks. got mine!!!

    • Holly

      I know y’all have said that it excludes sale items, but what about the “$10 gift card with a $30 purchase of participating items”?

      • Lonestar9

        I think it’s safe to say it probably would, though your store may let you. It’s easier to check since they are all so different.

      • Spanishtulip

        usually in cvs terminology “sale items” includes anything in their flyer :(

        • Mel

          You might be right, but I thought sale items were items whose price was reduced.

    • Guest

      Sounds like this is the same Q that was emailed to me (one each week from CVS) that expires 11/21.  Used mine yesterday and it does exclude sale, closeouts, discontinued, etc etc etc.

      • Andi330

        How do you get these one per week coupons? I signed up for the extra care thing and got the first $4 off $20, but I haven’t gotten one since. I’ve checked my Spam folder just to make sure.

    • Mcleodsc

      with all the exclusions, what would this coupon be good to use on?

      • Spanishtulip

        nothing that I would buy :) I almost never buy anything that is not on sale at cvs.

        • Alyssa

          Same here, although some of the comments above have some possible ideas. 

          • Alyssa

            Nevermind, the terms of this coupon appear to exclude those suggestions.  

      • Gamblesonsfarms

        I always look for deals in the weekly ad where you get extra bucks for purchasing certain items, but doesn’t advertise a “sale” price. After your 20%, the extra bucks, and coupons, I usually come out with some pretty sweet deals. It just takes a little more calculator work.

    • Carof

      I usually use these coupons for buying extra Sunday papers or for milk.

      • Alyssa

        The terms of this one says it excludes newspapers and milk. :(

        • Carof

          Thanks for mentioning that.  The one I email one I got that expires 11/22 doesn’t exclude those items. 

        • Joevvjoe

          how about baby formula?

    • Couponeagle11

      i am gonna wait because if you get it today then it will expire sunday so heres hoping its there when i try

    • MomOf4

      I’m using it to do the fragrance deal again, since they are not on sale at my store, but count towrds the 30 gift card.  Can’t wait!!

    • maddin

      besides the 20%off coupon I also found a %5 off $25 purchase in my online account I did not see any exclusions to use that for the black friday sale

      • CTB

        I did too.  As a matter of fact there are two.  So now I have one 20% (non sale itemes) and 2 $5 of $25.  That’s never happened before.

        • Anitalbernard

          I was curious if anyone else got two of the $5 off $25.  I found it earlier today and was quite shocked. So, I have all 3 to use as well.  So excited!!

    • Lowes91

      I got mine and when I went online to cvs extra care and looked at my account it says the 20% off expires tomorrow 11/19..I never printed it..it was just showing on my acct

      • Is that the date to access the offer and load it to your card? Usually the percent off doesn’t have to be used by that date.

      • kathy

        I got one too but I clicked send to card and it gave me a few more days before it expired however it expires on 11/23 but i can still use it for whatever in the store. there are still halloween stuff i can use it towards!

    • Lzbacnik

      I cannot get through to get one. 

    • Anonymous

      Mine took off for the Edge Shave Gel because it was regular price.

    • Beth

      I did the quiz this morning and it said I would get an email shortly well that was 7 hours ago.  Hmmm.  I wen to my extra bucks account and found $5 ECB I didn’t know I had but no 20% coupon.  Has it taken anyone else a long time to get the coupon?

      • Sandraslowinski

        I never got mine.  I called them but they are closed.

      • Guest

        check your Spam folder with your e-mail service.. Mine went straight to Spam…

    • nikki

      Just received my coupon for 20% off and the expiration date is 11/21/2011; that’s Monday. Won’t be able to use it towards holiday sales:(.

    • Becky P

      I didn’t even have to take the quiz. 

    • Sandraslowinski

      I never got mine :(

    • Josh

      I didn’t have to take the quiz either.. But, the twist is that since I have GMail, mine went straight to the Spam folder.. So, if you have GMail and tried to get the coupon, check your Spam folder.

    • Josh

      Here are the exclusions:
      Excludes sale merchandise, promotional offerings, including “buy more
      & save” promotions, discontinued merchandise,
      milk, bread, alcohol, gift cards, lottery, money orders, prescriptions,
      postage stamps, pre-paid cards, tobacco products, newspapers, magazines,
      Netbook and Sylvania or Craig 7″ Tablet.

    • Nelward

      Thank you Josh!

    • Cecelia

      Just talked to 2 different CVS stores in NW FL. I was told the 20% off coupon can not be used for any item in the Weekly Sales Paper. My CVS has 10 for $10 items maybe I can use the 20% off and buy 12 items, if there are any items I need.

    • Vjdillard

      Last week, I received a 20% off coupon with the same exclusions.  The computer took the 20% off any item that wasn’t at a sale price.  So the almonds that were B1G1 weren’t eligible, but the razors which I received ECBs for were eligible :)  Hope this helps!

    • Cah34

      Check your spam folder if you still haven’t gotten it.. that’s where mine was hiding. Thanks for the heads up!

      • Tenika

        Thanks found mine under SPAM

    • Nita Royal

      No quiz and I got mine instantly, but as usual, it excludes sale items.  The way I shop, that makes it not worth printing ;-)

    • wallis

      haven’t seen my Q …not even in my junk mail,,,,been 2 days??

    • Tate

      I called customer service because I hadn’t gotten mine. They issued me one that is good through mid December!!!

    • MustangLadyred

      I’m an Earl E Bird too!!!

    • Spam_sux84

      can you use this coupon in conjuntion with ECBs to pay for your purchase???

    • Ampoe1

      I signed up on the 18th and then the 19th it was expired. I called customer care they said to talk to the customer realtions dept. HTH
