    • Nina

      What do you mean by Saturday shopping?

    • Jenny

      If your CVS is not a 24 hr CVS you are able to buy all of next weeks deals starting Saturday afternoon. You can actually get this weeks and next weeks deals at the same time. The day specific deals i.e. Sunday/Monday deals will not work until their exact day specified but the week long deals will all start printing ECB’s Saturday!!

      You get first selection!!

    • Blair

      OK, so you must shop at the CVS on #6 because it is almost always out of the CVS ECB items!!! LOL

    • Lorri Ecarma

      Will your #2 work?? Don’t you need to buy $20 in GM items to get the $10?? Looks like you have $10 in GM items.

    • Mercedes

      Where was the $3 off $15 originally published. Maybe I have one and don’t realize it. And thanks for bringing it up, I never noticed it.

    • Jenny


      The #1 and #2 combined have the $20 worth, you can always split up transactions as long as you use the same CVS card it will add them all together. So to keep my out of pocket lower I split them up. You won’t get the $10 ECB until you complete the deal so after #2 it will print the ECB’s for the whole deal.

    • Jenny

      I think the $3 off $15’s that I got were originally published in the Richmond Virgina Parent magazine. The version posted online earlier this year had a coupon good for about a month, but the paper version had a coupon good through the end of the year. Others are in the “Your Pharmacy Services” booklet that were at CVS earlier this year. When these come out though they are hoarded by folks so they are very hard to find :( I’ve even heard of CVS’s never putting them out because the employees take them all.

    • Greenbean

      my CVS didn’t have $3.99 Excedrin, as advertised in the flyer. Bummer

    • Katie

      I bought the Colgate, but it doesn’t show that my limit has been reached. Does this mean I can buy more????

    • Jenny

      Yes it does. Turns out the limit is 2!

    • Amanda

      I bought the Pepsi’s and did not recieve the extra care bucks and they were not 4 for 13. Is there anywhere I can find the pepsi’s ad?

    • Jenny

      Amanda, if you go to http://www.cvs.com, in the left hand corner click on “Store Circular” you can bring up the one for your area. I just typed in zip codes I know in GA, FL, and SC and the Pepsi ad was on the front left corner of all of them. I’m sorry you had a problem. I would call Customer Service and they will give you your ECB’s.

    • Jessica

      The Pepsi deal is actually four EIGHT packs for $12 here (Gainesville), with $3 ECB back. My local store was actually almost out of 12 packs, and when I asked the manager, he said that Pepsi is phasing out 12 packs. However, because the deal sign next to the Pepsi display in my store had in fine print “limit four 12 packs”, I was able to convince the manager to give me the 12 packs for the 8 pack price, including the ECB. They then promptly pulled down all the signs with the error ;).

      My store also did not have the deal on the Complete Multipurpose solution.

    • Jessica

      Correction: The Pepsi deal here is four 8-packs for $11, with $3 ECB back.

    • Jenny: Thanks for stopping by my blog. :) It was a nice surprise. I actually do have a question for you. What about returns? Can you return an item bought with ECBs? And if so, what happens? Do they give you the ECBs instead of cash? Or if you paid cash and got ECBs back, do you have to give the ECBs back if you return the item? Thanks!

    • Jenny

      Thats a tricky question. It depends on the cashier really how this works. Your best bet is to just return it without the receipt and then there are no issues. They should give you your money back though even if you paid with ECB’s and you do not have to give back any ECB’s that the product generated.
