    • Kathy

      Thanks again for all the great info.
      The link to the Colgate coup is not working. Is it still available?

    • I love how you show us the little scenarios too. If I go to CVS with a big plan there is always something not available and it throws me off. I stick the little plans! Thanks!!!! Happy New Year!

    • Jenny

      I fixed the link to the Colgate coupon! Thanks for letting me know it wasn’t working.

    • Diwa

      hi, where do you find PG coupons? Are they only ordered on line?

    • Jenny

      They are in the Sunday newspaper in an insert put out by Procter & Gamble. There is one in today’s paper!

    • Do you happen to know if CVS has the ability to print off a “gift” receipt” or something like it (I know Walgreens does) for all us folks that are trying to collect our receipts for our PG coupon rebate book? TIA

    • Jenny

      I know they can print a duplicate receipt but have never asked for a gift receipt. Are you wanting one that doesn’t show the final payment? Does anyone else know?

    • mary

      I found a new diabetic book at CVS that has a coupons for the Nova Max, Breeze2, and colgate.

    • lane

      When I tried to use more than1 of the coupons you advised at both Publix and CVS, the clerk said I could only use 1 manufacturer coupon. I was so frustrated-what am I doing wrong?

    • Jenny

      The one problem with couponing is the cashiers. I would say not to give up and just try another cashier the next time. The computer will take both of them so hopefully you will find a cashier that works with coupons and will at least try to scan and see what the computer does.

    • Thanks for the link on the Colgate toothpaste 1.50, I hope you don’t mind that I included it along with a compliment to your blog on my CVS trip today and I added you to my blogroll. http://zombiemommysaves.blogspot.com/2008/12/cvs-paid-me-to-buy-diapers.html
      If I was wrong let me know and I will turn it off.

    • linda

      Thank you so much for this link, I am shareing it with everyone that I know. I found out today that Publix will except any and all coupons from any other grocery store. Hope this helps!


    • Bethany

      Went today:
      Glucose Monitor
      2 Pantene Products
      1 Rhoto

      Used 4 off 20 coupon, 14.99 lowered monitor coupon, 3 dollar pantene and 2 dollar off rhoto…total out of pocket $2.19! And I got back $9 in ECB

      Also – on the two pantene products, I grabbed one accidentaly that was half price (1.50) and I still got the ECB’s for it. So if you were to buy two half price products and the $3/2 you get them for FREE plus you earn $2 ECBS!

    • Julieann

      My CVS in Salem, VA just decided that they were only going to accept one internet printed coupon per same item. For instance, I got the two Colgates and tried to use two of the coupons you have listed here. She would only accept one of them, rationalizing that they were having troubles with people copying coupons so she was just going to stop taking more than one of the same coupon! I informed her that this was not CVS policy and that none of the other CVS’s were doing this. She tried to tell me that Kroger doesn’t take internet printables anymore either, of which I promptly informed her was untrue. I just decided to quit fighting for $1.50 and took the two toothpastes for .25/ea instead of making $1. Humph! I am getting sick of these stores making up their own rules, regardless of what their corporate policy says….they’re ending up just like WalMart.

    • laura

      There are about 6 CVS stores around me and I have started bouncing from one to another b/c every time I go I make a scene. I try to be nice but I do question all of their rules that seem to change from day to day, clerk to clerk, and store to store. One of the stores does the only 1 printed coupon per item like Julieann’s store but the others don’t seem to care. Saving $$ can be a pain but it is such a high also!!

    • laura

      I know you don’t get $$ back if your ECB exceed your purchase amount but my understanding from reading the rules you listed is that you can use more if you want- right? For example, if my total was 4.87 and I had $5 in ECB- then so what? I lose .13 right? Tonight I was told, your subtotal must exceed the ECB that you are using. Have you heard this before?
