    • joei

      I have a question?

      I want to do the coke deal. I want to get all vitamin waters, but there is a limit of 6 per transaction. Do I have to buy all $20 worth in one tranaction to get the ecb? or can it be split and then it will print with the last transaction?

      • Jenny

        You can split it up into 3 transactions and after you buy the $20 needed amount (the third transaction) the ECB will print.

    • Brandi

      I got an advanced copy of next weeks ad from the clerk at my CVS and there was a Bayer meter for $14.99 with 5 ECB’s in it. I did not see it in your plan. Is this maybe regional, I did not get to use my coupons at Wags this week so I am using my 2 coupons at CVS for the ECB’s next week!

      • Jenny

        I just looked all through the ad I have the meter on sale was a Accucheck and no ECB’s. It is on sale in the national 5/10-5/16 ad though. Maybe your store is a week ahead??

      • Jenny

        I just looked all through the ad I have the meter on sale was a Accucheck and no ECB’s. It is on sale in the national 5/10-5/16 ad though. Maybe your store is a week ahead??

    • joei

      Thanks Jenny. You rock!

    • Shannon

      Hi Jenny,

      There is another scenario for the Kellogg’s Cereal if you use the coupons from the Frosted Mini Wheats Vocalpoint that came this week.

      Buy 3 cereals @ 3/$10.
      Use 1 BOGO and 2 $1/1 (-$5.33)
      Pay $4.67, get back $5.
      It’s actually a $.33 moneymaker

    • tonya

      i have six b1g1 free vitamin water coupons.

      question can i buy six vitamin waters and use all six coupons…making them free?

      • Jenny

        You can buy 6 and use 3 coupons to get 3 for free but you can’t use the six coupons on 6 items.

        You could do 3 B1G1 coupons and 3 -.50/1 or $1 off coupons together, but not 6 B1G1.

    • Emily

      Can I use a $5 off $25 Rite Aid coupon at CVS? Will they honor it?

    • tonya

      got it! thanks again jenny!


    • Laura

      Couple of questions…First of all do any of the Publix outside of Florida do double coupons. Second, the $30 coupon for the meter, how much will it take off if the price of the meter is $14.99, does that mean you can purchase and additional $15.00 worth of products and they will still deduct $30.00 off the complete total of your purchase? And regarding Publix accepting RR, has anyone had any success in Florida?

    • Emily

      Coke Deal:

      Buy 5 12pks @ $4.00 = $20
      Use 5 -$1.00 coupons from mycokerewards
      =$15.00 OOP, get back $10 in ECB
      =$1.00 per 12 pack!!
      =Time to stock up!

      Mycokerewards stopped offering the iPod dock I had been saving points for just before I had enough. Now it seems I’ve been using my 2000+ points just to print off coupons! But the hubby and I each drink at least one can a day, so it is getting used!

    • Kim

      Love, love your deal ideas! I end up using most of them every week. Thanks! :-)

    • Shawn

      Where do I find the $120 saving rebate booklet?

    • Brandi

      OMG! You are right. When I went in to the CVS the other day the clerk had one folded up and handed it to me nad told me that “Here’s a sneak peek for next week for you”…I assumed it was for next week! I just looked at the dates on it and it startes on 5-10-09…Ughhh…Oh well guess I will save the coupon for the next week! LOL

    • MiniMidgMom

      Printed my 6 command hook coupons – they will come in handy next winter when we have extra coats to hang up. I did a mix and match of 3 different styles of plastic hooks and had no problems with the metal hook coupons.All I paid was $1.39 sales tax and got the $5 ecb. Then I bought the ALL BOGO with the ecb and 2 $1 coupons, and got the Palmolive for 88 cents minus a 25 cent coupon. I spent less than $3 combined for both transactions! This is awesome!

    • Kristi

      I am a little upset about the band aids and Neosporin. I went tonight… there was not ONE box of Band-aids for $1 nor were there any Neosporin for $3.99. That ad is crap!

    • Anya

      Shannon, where do you find a BOGO coupon for Kellogs? Thanks!!

    • Esmelda

      I’ve used Walgreens RR’s at different area Publix stores in Gainesville, FL without any problems. I asked before I used it the first time and was told I could use one per transaction.

    • tonya

      would a seasoned couponer clarify this for me….

      why would i redeem my rr at publix rather than continuing to “roll” it at walgreens?

    • Shonda

      I have a question. I have a $2 ECB and a $10 ECB from last week. If I go in to get the 5 sodas at $4 dollars each will they let me use both of my ECB in that one transaction?

      Thank you for your help!

    • Mary

      I just wanted to share that tonight I went to CVS and did the vitamin water/coke deal.

      (I’m pretty sure what I did was legitimate so if it wasn’t then please delete.)

      I know Jenny said that you can’t use 6 BOGO but you can. Here is how it works. You buy six (which is the limit for the 3/$4 price) you can then use your (6)$1 coupons. cost 2.00.
      Then you can add 6 more vitamin water for regular price 1.69. My cashier then took off 1.69 because it was BOGO. Your store may work it different but if you buy the extra 6 you will have 18.14 toward your coke reward and spend between 2.00+ for 10.00 ECB back. If you did it BOGO (3) you will lose the 1.33 price because it will show you bought 6 already.

      Hope this helps someone who has the BOGO q’s.

    • Mary

      I’m sorry Jenny I didn’t mean for that to sound like I was going against what you said… LOL
      I was just wanting everyone to get the best deal. No, meanness intended.

      • Jenny

        What you have is right. I thought you were originally asking if you could only buy 6 items and use 6 B1G1 coupons.

    • MelRae

      To Shawn: The $120 savings booklet is a promotion that Proctor & Gamble did earlier this year. I believe the deadline has long since passed. You might can find one on ebay or go to Hot Coupon World and see if someone is willing to trade.

    • tonya


      i’m due to go to cvs on monday…please clarify your order for me. exactly how many vit waters do i buy? i do have 6 b1g1 coupons for vit water.

      appreciate your seasoned couponism.

    • Melissa

      Does anyone know if the toothbrushes are part of the colgate deal, ($2.99 get $2 ecb)

    • Tina

      Can someone please tell me where to find the $120 Saving Rebate Booklet?

      Thank you very much!

      • Jenny


        The $120 booklet was a rebate promotion done in early Januray by P&G. The promotion is over however I have seen some comment that you can find the booklets on ebay or in a coupon trade at Hot Coupon World. Sorry :(

    • Shelley

      Does anyone know where there is a coupon for Nutri-Grain or Special K cereal bars? I think those are included in the Kelloggs deal.

    • Mary


      The Nutrigrain bars are included in the Kelloggs deal the Q I had was from a Publix book. It was a MANU Q mixed in with their publix Q’s.


      Here is how it works.

      (14) vitamin water 10 (6 of which is the limit for the 3/$4 price)
      (6) will cost 3/$4 OR 6/$8
      (8) will cost (8 x 1.69)=13.52

      (8)$1 coupons
      (6) BOGO

      Get Back:$10.00 ECB

      MM of $6.62

      My cashier then took off 1.69 because it was BOGO. Your store may work it different but she took off the highest priced. If you did it BOGO (3) you will lose the 1.33 price because it will show you bought 6 already.

      Hope this helps!

    • Mary

      I will add if you have another BOGO your cost will be less.


    • terre

      Mary, are you saying that you are using vitaminwater as a coke rewards too? I know it is a Coke product but I don’t see where I can enter a code for it. I have around 60 bottles (from a grocery store deal).

    • Victoria

      Very odd thing happened this morning. I tried to use two $1Q for MiniWheats & a BOGO Q (all from the Vocal Point thing), and was told I couldn’t use the BOGO. THEN the worst part. I handed two separate ECB’s to the cashier to pay. They were small amounts, and didn’t cover the whole amount anyway. He told me that I can only use 1 ECB per transaction. He said he ‘could’ scan in as many as I handed him, but that it was policy to only use one at a time. He went on to say that the night guy (who I usually see & wasn’t there this morning) got fired for doing this kind of transaction. Being that it’s Sunday, I can’t talk to the CVS customer service line today, but it changes how I will need to plan if I can only use 1 ECB at a time. Do you know anything about this??

      • Jenny

        You should be able to use as many ECB’s in a transaction as you like. So a call to Customer Service might help.

    • Cheryl

      I did the Miniwheats deal also. However, there is a little glitch. I did the BOGO first and then 1.00 and then another 1.00. Well the last dollar kept beeping. My cashier was going to push it through but I told her lets see why its beeping. We looked everything over and it should have worked but it kept beeping. We then looked at the BOGO coupon and it said the free one was up to 3.10 in price. Well the cereal is actually 3.33. So she adjusted the free cereal to 3.10 and then all the coupons went through great with no beeping.

    • Heather

      fyi The Aveeno coupons in the Parade 4/26 is only is large metro papers such as Atlanta or Charlotte. And only is some of the Charlotte papers I purchased two Charlotte papers and one Parade had the coupon the other did not!

    • Sarah

      I bought 3 Kellogg’s cereals, hoping to get the 3/10.00 and 5 ECB offer. After I left the store I realized I bought 2 Kellogg’s cereals that were not part of the offer. I paid for the cereals with ECBs and only owed .27 out of pocket. If I return the 2 cereals that I got by mistake, what will happen to my ECBs that I paid with? Will I get cash back or only the .27 back that I paid? What happens when you buy something at CVS and pay mostly with ECBs? Will they credit me with the ECBs that I spent so that I can use them on a future purchase to buy the correct cereals that are in the 3/10.00 offer this week?

    • Julie

      Went to CVS this morning and got the following:

      6 – 12 packs of Coke products that are on sale
      3 – Kelloggs Cereals (2 Frosted Flakes, 1 Special K) 3/$10

      Had 2 $1 off coupons for the Frosted Flakes, and a $5 off $25 that printed at the kiosk where you scan your card…I used $18 in ECBs to pay and only had to come out of pocket a little over $9 — AND I rec’d $15 in ECBs for buying the cokes and the cereals! Awesome deal!

    • Julie G.

      The printable vitamin water coupon says “Only one coupon per purchase.” How am I supposed to use 6 coupons?

      • Jenny

        One per purchase really means one per item purchased. If it said one per transaction or one per person or one per househould then that would mean only one coupon.

    • Patti

      At my CVS you can’t use a coupon on top of an item being on clearance. I was told the clearance item wouldn’t ring up under the item name, hence not letting you use the coupon. I would have had a $5 item for free last week if you could!

    • Mary


      The coke rewards has nothing to do with the coke rewards online.
      It had to do with the CVS “COKE DEAL” that included vitamin waters.

      Sorry to confuse.

    • tonya


      thank you very much for clarifying the deal for me. i’m headed there tomorrow. my 9yr old thinks she cannot live without “vitamin water”. it must be the latest fad. she will be delighted to see these in her lunch box.

      a grateful mother.

    • joei

      Has anyone else had a problem using printable Q’s at cvs? I had my first bad experience yesterday there. I had 6 printable .50/1 vitamin water and 6 bogo( not printable). First the cashier said I couldn’t use the .50/1 because I was getting one free, but that shouldn’t of mattered right? I was using the .50 Q on the one I bought and the other Q applies to the free one right? Then he went to go get the manager (love when they do that) she said she can’t take printed Q’s? well they have been takng them all along. They made me feel as if I was doing something wrong and she said I coppied the Q. I explained that that is against the law and I could get busted for that. She then said that she would only be able to take them if I brough in the whole sheet of paper. Has anyone had this? Does anyone have CVS Q policy? Do you think they just get cranky with us? I think I should call corporate, but she ended up taking them. She sure did make me feel horrible!

    • Pat

      I live in Port Charlotte, FL and am having trouble finding a newspaper that has the Proctor & Gamble coupons the first sunday of the month. Has anyone out there found them?

    • Ashley

      I want to do the Special K deal. I have enough coupons to do the deal 3x with 9 – $1 off coupons because friends who don’t eat Special K gave me their coupons. I noticed that it says “Limit 1”. Can I do this in 3 separate buys and still get the 5 ECB with each purchase? Or will my ECB card recognize that I have already done this deal and not give me the ECB?

      Thank you,


    • joei


      You can only get the ECB once. Sorry:(

    • Ashley

      Thanks joei. Glad I know now before I went in there!

    • Where is the kiosk where you scan your card? I’ve never done this, or even noticed one. Do all CVS’s have them?

    • Natalee

      My second couponing trip ever to CVS:

      -Mr Bubble coupon .50
      -(2) Johnson & Johnson’s coupons $1 each

      Thanks to you all! I’m learning soooo much!

    • Kelly

      Jackie, not all stores have them.

      I have heard that there are tearpads for free nestea when you buy coke products in the refrigerated section. worth a look!!

    • Brandi

      Went ot one of my CVS stores today and did the Kelloggs deal:
      2 boxes o fshredded wheat – one box of Special K (my store only had 2 boxes of shredded wheat left
      Used B1G1 (VP)
      2 x $1 MQ
      so it came to $4.66 after my coupons – GOT 5 ECB’s
      Also bought the B1G1 Russel Stover Sugar Free bag of candy
      Used a B2 Get 1 free
      Had to pick up 4 bags
      CVS game me 2 free and my coupon make the other free – so I paid $2.19 for all for bags

      ***Scanned my card and got a $2 off any $5 Sally Hansen prouct****
      Also a $4 off of $20 CVS brand purchase
      and a Nicorette $25 off complete kit

      If I would have had the money (which I will by the end of the week)
      I would have used this deal***
      B1G1 1/2 price Sally Hansen nail art pen ($7.99 regualr price
      B1G1 Free coupon (All you)
      $2 off $5 CRT Sally Hansen
      Making it $1.99 for 2 of the art pens
      My daughter wants these so bad…but I just did not have the money for the OOP yet. Did not want to waste a 10 or 5 ECB on it…

    • Stephanie

      Maybe I’m confused… when I click the link for the Colgate coupon above.. I’m directed to a Colgate TOTAL coupon.. not a Max or Max Fresh coupon. Am I missing something here?

    • Jamey

      Has anyone out there used 2 of the BOGO coupons for Gillette shampoo? I wondered if you could use 2 and get both free like the Purex deal a couple weeks ago??

    • Jamey

      never mind…I just looked back at the posts and saw that the Purex was on sale for BOGO and then you could use the coupon too. Rats.

    • Emily

      Can someone clarify on scanning your CVS card at a kiosk? I’ve never seen this. Where are they and what does it do?

    • Stephanie

      Emily: At some CVS locations, there will be a little (usually red) scanner/reader where you can scan your card. It looks like a price check reader (it’s about 4-5 ft tall. In Knoxville.. they’re usually near the cosmetics). Not all CVS stores have them though. If your store doesn’t have them, you can go up to the register and ask them to scan your card to get the coupons that way.

      Went to four CVS. I saved 79.19 total and spent 31.90. I goofed on one and bought an extra huggies wipes. only meant to get three total. Did not reliese until home. on two visits spent less than a dollar. and kept getting the Dawn soap for fillers. Now my husband has plenty of soap to do the dishes. lol This is a great site. thx Jenny

    • nancy

      I do believe you can. If the coupon said one per purchase item. That means one per product. one cp for one item.(ok) Then if you are looking at the sales paper and it states limit one. That means you can only do the in store ECB($5) for Kelloggs one time for the month of May. So yes you can get three same box kelloggs with coupon at cvs then they will give ECBs at the end of transaction for $5. If you want to make use just as the clerk. I do.

    • nancy


      I have called the 1-800-shop-cvs and asked about the policy and yes you can BOGO free in store sell and use a coupon at transaction. Go back and politely call the number then speak to the manager that way you can shop there with out any issues. Be friendly and get what you want. I am not sure about the BOGO non-printed cp. also ask about the bringing in the whole paper for the printable Q. I would like to know since I have never heard of that.

    • nancy

      I seen at another website that the ECBs where limited becouse of CVS buying out Longs Drug Store. anyone heard of this? I wonder how long it will last or are they going to these coupons in the monthly cvs ad.

    • joei

      Thanks Nancy

      I didn’t think it was wrong, but she was not happy with all my Q’s. I hate when they try to make you feel bad for getting a good deal :(

      She ended up taking all of them so I don’t want to start trouble by calling the 800#

    • My CVS still has this deal this week (leftover from last week), even though I didn’t find it in my sales ad.

      $5 ECB wyb $15 Nivea Skin Care, Lip Care, Body Wash, Nivea For Men or Eucerin Limit 1
      Nivea Creme Oil Body Wash $5
      -$1 off Nivea Body Product RP 2/08 or printable
      Nivea Lip $2.50
      -$1 off Nivea Lip Care Product, RP 2/08
      Nivea For Men $4
      -$1 off Nivea Natural Tone RP 4/05

      I checked the shelf tag, and the dates are for this week. I did, however, see many ECB shelf tags with last week’s dates yet to be taken down in there. I think there was a leftover Dove $5 ECB/$15 deal, too. I’m going back tomorrow to check it out when I have more time to browse. Today I popped in and grabbed the Kelloggs cereal deal, and the Colgate deal. I’m new to CVSing, and I’m so hooked!

    • Also, are yall buying Vitamin Water 10’s? That’s what my coupons are for, I just wanted to see if the Coke deal worked for those, not just plain Vitamin Water.

    • Brandi

      Quick question***as long as I have been CVSing I have never see na cosmetic product called Milani. I got aCRT today that read
      “Buy $10 of Milani and get FREE shadow Wear Quad or Black Magic Liner”
      Any ideas guys? Any deal ideas for this one???

    • Brandi

      I just found out why I have never seen this product…LOL…I am sure they have it but it is a cosmetic for african american woman (which I am not)but it seems like a great coupon so I may use it on the nail polish, or lip gloss, or I can always use the eye liner…My DD has darker skin but she is only 12 and not allowed to wear make up yet…hmmm…still trying to come up with a good deal for this one. The lowest price I saw on it as $3.99…and I have never seen coupons for it.

    • Brandi

      Never mind, LOL
      The friend who called me and told me that just called back (she is at CVS right now) and said that she was told by the clerk it is not a product JUST for african american women, she assumed that by the colors of the powders…Sorry. Now I feel like an idiot!

    • Mary

      Jackie, Yes the deal was for Vitamin water 10 It was included at my store in the coke deal.

      I went back today because I hadn’t reached my limit to get my 10 ECB and a funny thing. Today they rang up 1.33 again not 1.69. So, I’m guessing if you did 3/$4 and bought 6 and used your BOGO and then went back for the next few days until you reached your 20.00 to get your $10 ECB you would spend even less. Sorry I’m too tired to do the math right now…You do need to buy 15 with the limit of 6 a day.

      Hope this helps.

    • Emily

      Just an FYI on a great deal I found at my local CVS. They have Listerine products marked for $3.00 off. I bought a 1 liter bottle, original price $5.29, with the sale for $2.29. I asked if I could apply the Listerine Total Care coupon for $2.00 to it and they were fine with that, so I ended up getting a 1 liter orignal flavor Listerine for $0.29!

    • Ashley

      Have a question about the Adidas anti-perspirant. If you buy three in one transaction, will all three ECBs ($3 each) print? I don’t have the $1 off coupon, but it’s great to give to charity.

      • Jenny

        You can buy all three at once and get $9 ECB back.

    • Jamey

      I have a question on the Aveeno deal…my receipts from this weeks trips have printed at the bottom “This weeks Extra Buck offers: Aveeno Spend 25 get 10ECB…amount toward reward 56.05…amount needed to earn reward 18.95.” Does this mean the lotion deal is still going on or is the Aveeno Shampoo deal this week somehow tied to this?
      I am wondering if I only need to buy $18.95 worth of Aveeno hair products this week to get the 10 ECB since I have a little left over from the last time I did the lotion deal a couple weeks ago. Has anyone else noticed this on their receipt? PS thanks Jenny for making me such a bargain hunter!

    • Bethany

      I also have a question about the Adidas anti-perspirant. I do have 3 – $1 off coupons, so do I need to do seperate transactions, so that th second two will be free?? I am very new to CVSing, so please explain. Thank you so much for all that you do.

      • Jenny

        If you want to send the least out of pocket then you do want to but the deodorant in three separate transactions so the second and third are you just handing over ECBs and getting ECBs back.

    • Brandi how funny is that about the Milani..yeah us black girls know what that is…feel free to buy for me and put in the mail!LOL.

    • Sabrina

      I need help! I am a brand new CVSer and can’t figure out the best way to buy the things I want this week. I LOVE that you have posted your grand plan on here, and would love to follow it, but there are several things on your plan that I don’t want. Can someone help me figure this out. I have been working on it for hours!
      Here’s what I want to buy:
      1. Listerine (I have a $2 off coupon)
      2. Colgate (I have 1 $1 off coupon and 1 $.75 off coupon)
      3. Kellogg’s Cereal (I have 3 $1 off coupons)
      4. Vitamin Water & 12 packs of coke (I have 1 $1 off coupon and 2 BOGO coupons for Vitamin Water)
      5. Claritin (I have 1 $4 off coupon)
      6. Charmin (I have 1 $.25 off coupon)

      **I already have $3.50 in ECB that I can use too.**

      So, what’s the best scenario for me? I don’t care how many of each item I buy, just as long as I get the most bang for my buck! Any takers on helping out a brand new CVSer????

      Thanks so much!!!

    • Laura

      You only need to buy the 18.95 to get the reward again. My receipt said the same thing, I owed 18.01. I bought a little over $18 in Aveeno products and got the $10 reward again! Don’t forget about the $2 and $5 off Aveeno coupons!

    • david

      on#3 could you use -$2/2 off Gillette coupon ?

    • Jamey

      Thanks! you were right! I went back today and got 3 Aveeno shampoos which was just enough to get my $10 ECB! Awesome deal…this is the 3rd time I did the Aveeno deal now, and it said on my receipt Offer Limit Reached. Oh well, I have enough Aveeno stuff to last at least a year! :)

    • tonya

      has anyone seen a “may ecb deals” booklet? i thought a booklet came out with the monthly deals. seems like i remember seeing an april one lying around.

      • Jenny

        April was the last month that CVS did a monthly ECB booklet. They are now doing a monthly “Clipless coupons” booklet that just has things on sale but it is nothing to get excited over :(

    • JEB

      My store did not have the Adidas so I bought toothpaste first. Got $2 bucks back..Then later bought Frosted Flakes or Special K cereal for 3 for $10…Got back $5 bucks…

      Then found a $4 off $20 purchase coupon that had come off a receipt from a few weeks ago…and was going to expire MAy 5. Next day went to another CVS and made my plan…I had 2 $5 off coupons for Pampers they sent me when I complained about my last batch leaking and tabs tearing. Plus I had my $5 extracare bucks, plus a $1 coupon off for the Adidas…I asked them first if I could use all those, and they said yes…So in that trip I got 2 packs Pampers Easy Ups, 1 Adidas deodorant and paid only $2.88 total including tax…Then I got back $3 bucks for the Adidas, which then I used to buy another one, which ended up costing .06, and then printed up another $3 extracare bucks…So now I have $3 left to spend…

      All total I spent $10.14 all week to get 1 Colgate toothpaste, 3 boxes medium size Frosted Flakes, 2 Pampers Easy ups packs, and 2 Adidas deodorants and I still have $ 3 CVS bucks to spend.

    • tonya

      thanks for clarifying that for us jenny.

      wanted to let everyone know…today i found right guard deo on clearance for $1.12…4/19 SS had $1 off one…making it 12cents. my husband has enough deodorant for a year under his sink!

      i’m not sure these “clearance” deals aren’t a store by store basis…because i was at another cvs earlier in the day and they were not on clearance…so check first my friends.

    • Erica

      I’ve had problems using internet printables at CVS. A couple of months ago when they had the Huggies/Johnson&Johnson deal my CVS would not let me use internet printed coupons from the coupons.com site. I contacted corporate and they said those coupons were not from an approved source–and now they have CVS coupons on the coupons.com site!

    • Helen

      Sooooo…. I dont see the Kellogs $1 off coupon when I click on the printable link to coupons.com, is it still available? Help! Thank You.

      • Jenny

        They reached their print limit last night I think. Sorry.

    • Thanks again for your awesome blog! I was especially excited about the Coke deal!



    • Quick question about a coupon that I got today it says $5 off $20 of CVS products. Do I really have to spend 20 of CVS products or can I use it on anything? If only CVS products, any suggestions on how or what to spend it on?

      Love this site and today I got 10 – 12 pks of coke products, 2 deod., 4 toothpastes, 2 kleenex boxes, Zantrax, Listerine (big bottle with bonus bottle) for $26 and I have $16 ECB to use. I wasn’t sure if there was a better way to use a $5 off $30 coupon? Any tips on those too…

      Thanks again for saving my family big bucks! We are going to give products to homeless & low income families as outreach for our church! Yay God!


      • Jenny


        I love your comment. I’m right there with you, Yay God!

        With the $5 off $20 does it specifically CVS Brand products? most of the time it is just $5 off $20 purchase. The more vague the coupon the more the computer can’t recognize if you purchased everything for it. I know the cosmetic coupons $3 off $15 in cosmetics etc work on anything in the store. In general they are all store coupons so…

        I am working on next weeks deals and will work up some scenarios you can use next week.

    • Sabrina

      Ok, so here’s what I just did!!!

      1. Buy 5 12 packs of Coke
      – Use a $4 off $20 CVS coupon
      – Use 5 $1 off coke coupons
      – Use $3.50 in ECB I already had
      – Total: $7.75
      – Recieved $10 ECB

      2. Buy 1 pack of Charmin Ultra Soft
      Buy 2 Colgate MaxFresh Toothpastes
      Buy 1 Listerine Total Care Mouthwash
      – Use $.25 off Charmin coupon
      – Use $.75 off Colgate coupon
      – Use $1 off Colgate coupon
      – Use $2 off Listerine coupon
      – Use $10 ECB from previous coke purchase
      – Total: $2.05
      – Received $5 ECB

      This was my first time CVSing and I am ADDICTED!!!!! Gonna go get started on next week’s deals! :)

      Thanks Jenny!!!!!!

    • Sabrina

      FYI – The Claritin is $15.99 each, not $12.99. Just thought I would let everyone know. :)

    • gloria

      I can’t seem to locate the $1 off 12 pack coke coupon on the coke rewards website anymore. The only coupon that seems available is for a free 12 pack, and they mail that to you. Has anyone found it in the last few days? I loved that coupon – it’s the only reason I do their rewards program!

    • DORA

      Yesterday, I went to CVS to take advantage of the Coke promotion to get $10 ECB when you buy $20 of coke/mars products. My intention was to buy 5 12packs of coke because they were $4 each (3 cases for $12 special). When I checked out the 5 cases total came to roughly $13. I couldn’t figure out why. So I got 2 more cases and a 2 liter coke. My total was a little over $21. I had $15 ecb and $4 off $20 purchase. Total out of pocket $1.88
      What I got:
      2 cases Coca Cola
      2 cases Sprite
      1 case Diet Coke
      1 case Mr. Pibb extra
      1 Case Fanta Orange
      1 2 liter Coke
      Out of pocket $1.88 plus I got $10 ecb Yeah!!!!!

      I looked at my receipt, I got 1 case free after I purchased 4 cases. I think this is something for the new ad starting 5/10/09.
      Has anyone else had this happen.
      I hope this makes sense, I am typing will holding a squirmy 22 month old.
