    • Lisa

      don’t forget about the 4/20 CVS you posted

    • Jo Anne

      I was wondering what Asking cashier to downgrade ECB means?
      Also I love your blog, thanks for all you help!!

      Jo Anne

    • April

      You ROCK!!! I was a little nervous thinking that you may not give us senarios this time. You came thru!!!!!! Your brain is so much better at it than mine. I have become dependant on you. You are a blessing to me…and my budget. Thanks for all you do!!!!!! MERRY CHRISTMAS!!! xxxooo

    • Jenny

      Asking them to downgrade grade it means that you are asking them to enter the lower value instead of letting it be the full ECB value. It is what some stores do when you try to use a coupon for an item that is less than the coupon, they enter it as a lower value and the computer will take it.

    • April

      I think you forgot to list your L’Oreal coupons on the third transaction of your grand plan.

    • Jenny

      I have acutally printed all the ones available so I don’t have any L’Oreal coupons (since we live in the land of no cosmetic coupons in inserts), but if I did that would would make it $27

      So you could through in the last Listerine to bring it back to $29 to use those ECB easily.

    • Jo Anne

      Awesome Jenny, Thank you so much!!

    • heather

      I saw that you now have the Right Guard Deoderant as a limit of one. Did that change?!?! I thought it was a limit of 5. Thanks!!!
      I just discovered your blog and I am loving it.

    • As always, Thanks for doing the work!

    • You know, I really like your blog and all your info — thank you so much! I did want to ask you, though, if you could also link to the ads. I like to just scan through them to see if there is anything else, and it would be great if I could get to it from your site. It’s not a big deal, but just thought I would ask. Thanks!

    • Kathy

      I have a -$2 Listerine coupon from Publix. Does CVS accept competitors?

    • Jenny

      They will not accept any coupon except a manufacturers coupon. At times they will accept Walgreens $ off $$ coupons but that is it. Sorry. That would have been a great coupon for this weeks deals.

      If the coupon says Manufacturer’s coupon on it though it would work even if has “redeem at…” on it. I think this Listerine coupon is a true Publix coupon though with no bar code and a LU # on it.

    • Lynn

      Some of these coupons must be regional, I don’t have a lot of them. I do have this one that I didn’t see listed. Zantac SS 12/14

    • Jenny

      I just pulled all of mine for tonight too and there are a lot that are regional. I’ll add the zantac one though, I had just found it too! Maybe we’ll run into each other at CVS.

    • Lynn

      Jenny I really love your site because the deals seem to match up better than other sites.

    • Lynn

      I just hate to keep posting but there is also a $1 of Crest Pro Health coupon (don’t know the insert date) exp 12-31-08. Also I’m curious to how you organize your coupons.

    • Lei

      Jenny, ur site is awesome .. im gettin more confident in doing the cvs shopping deals .. the cashiers are great there .. i shop like for hrs in there with numerous transactions and they are so nice about it .. sometimes they wont have an item in stock and it was easy to manuever the ECBs to another transaction .. i luv ur scenarios .. though i’ve only just begun couponing, and dont have all of the coupons sited, i can still find something to match the coupons i have .. again, thanks for all ur hard work and for sharing ur deals .. ur wonderful!

    • Bonnie

      Just to let you all know, there was a $5/$15 Q printing after my first transaction, so if you can split it up and make some extra money. The Right Guard, if you get 5, or the Joint Med would easily get you there! And a $1 Q on any hand or body lotion Q printed, use this on a trial size lotion, there are several brands to choose from. Both Q’s worked for me and made this week even sweeter.

    • Bethany

      where do you get the “in store cvs coupon”?

    • Julieann

      I was so excited this week. I ended up using three $4 off of $20 coupons that were sent out and a $5 off of $15 printed out on my first transaction.

      I started with $19.99 ECB’s, spent about $3-4 out of pocket (my system got messed up by out of stock items-oh well), and ended up with almost $60 in ECB’s!!!!!!!!!!!! I added up the totals of my orders and I got about $125 worth of stuff and made $40 bucks doing it (because of my coupons-mfg and cvs)!

      I love this!!

    • Sara

      Just did the Gillette deal tonight.

      2 Gil. Razors (which my dh loves) 9.99 each
      2 Gil. Body Wash (5.99 each)
      2 Gil. Shampoo (4.99 each)

      Total-About $43 with tax!
      Used 2 $4 off razor coupons
      Used 2 Buy razor get body wash free coupon
      Used 2 $1 off shampoo coupons
      Used 2 Buy razor get a shampoo free coupon

      Had 5 ecb, and my total came to $6.23 that I used a GC for.
      Got back 5 ECBs.
      My total could have been $2 cheaper cuz I had a register printed coupon for $2 off $8 shampoo coupon.

      I honestly did not know if this would work tonight as I am new to coupon stacking. So glad it did!

    • Sara

      Oh check this out too!
      If you are going to stock up on decorations etc. You probably have a printed coupon for $5 off of $15 holliday decor. (this printed some time when I was doing ecb deals this month) It expires today.

      So $30 in decorations (price if I bought them last week) would only be
      $10! All Xmas items are 1/2 off, so half of the $30=$15-$5 coupon=$10
      And I am sure some of you ladies have ECBs that would sweeten that and you could get free ornaments, or decorations.
