    • Jenny I sooo appreciate you and ALL of your hardwork! I have even started a blog to help my friends out that have coupon questions! You are the reason my family is saving tons of money!

    • ashley

    • Dony

      Just go to http://www.bananaboat.com you will see link to register to get $2 off. :)

    • Nicole

      I can’t get it to work either Ashley.

    • Sharon

      Coupon available! I saw this on Facebook:

      Eight O’Clock Coffee As a special thank you to our Facebook Fans (now over 2,000!), we are putting a coupon on eightoclock.com. It will be there by this weekend.

      I checked on the page and the link is there. I didn’t try to print yet because I’m out of ink!

    • lynn

      i didnt find the coupon there is there some where on the page i should look that i missed?

    • ET

      I was able to print the Banana Boat coupon only once. How do you get two for your plan? Thanks!

    • Shannon N.

      You can also use the FREE Mars Chocolate (up to 85 cents) mailed from http://www.realchocolate.com. I received 4 in the mail last week. If I use those with the BOGO coupons (up to 85 cents), after ECB, It’ll be 80 cents for 16 snickers bars!…lol Don’t think I need that many though… LOL

      (16) Mars Single packs @ $16.00
      (8) BOGO Mars Single packs @ -$6.80 (insert or blinkie)
      (4) FREE Mars Single pack @ -$3.40
      OOP: $5.80
      ECB: $5.00

      or some people got a $5/$30 in their emails that expires on Sunday… and do this is you really like chocolate!

      (30) Mars Single packs @ $30.00
      (15)BOGO Mars Single packs @ -$12.75 (insert or blinkie)
      (4) FREE Mars Single pack @ -$3.40
      (1) $5/30 from CVS email
      OOP: $8.85
      ECB: $10.00

      Yikes…. 30 bars of chocolate and a $1.15 MM is kinda scary….ROFL Too bad it’s not closer to Halloween… man, I would be the coolest house in the neighborhood!

    • Becky

      Where do I get the $120 savings rebate booklet? (I specifially need it for the Always Pads/liners)

    • Andrea

      I am actually getting the coke deal 4/13 and you get $3 in ecb. I have 14.99 in ecb left over from last week, so free cokes for me!

    • meg

      ET: it’s one coupon per computer, so if you have access to another one you can print a second. My husband and I each have our own computers so I print coupons from each one.

    • lynn

      i have the coupons for for free bars of chocolate just got it in the mail yesterday think maybe time to make smores lol

    • lynn

      sad usualy i get the email coupon from cvs but i didnt trhis week bummer could have used it

    • THe Gilette razors should print out a $2.50 CAT..have to get the print out and will repost later, but knew I should let you know as soon as I knew.

    • Pat

      Do you scan your CVS card at the Kiosk when you go into the store? I always do this and usually I get a coupon for $4 off $20. In your first scenario, you would not have to use your ECB. You may have had to pay a small amount for taxes, but you would still have the $5ECB for another transaction.

    • KC

      (Where do I get the $120 savings rebate booklet? (I specifially need it for the Always Pads/liners)

      It was a P&G booklet mailed out after submitting reciepts, kinda like a rebate

    • Jan

      Any scenarios without the Bayer Breeze coupon? I only started doing this in April so I don’t have the valuable coupon. I promise I won’t ever miss it again!

    • Jan

      Sorry – I meant any good STARTER scenarios without the Bayer Breeze coupon?

    • Migs

      Just wanted to remind you gals/guys that there are some good coupons in the Home Made Simple booklet for the Swiffer/Febreeze promo.

      Here’s what I’m doing:
      Swiffer Sweeper Starter Kit $9 – $2
      Febreeze Air Effects $3 – .50
      Total OOP = 9.5
      $5 RR
      $4.50 for Kit and Febreeze!! I’m not sure if that’s a great deal but it’s good enough for me!

    • Amanda

      The Viva towels link is not working. It doesn’t even create a pointer when dragging the mouse over it. ????? Someone help!

      Thank you.

    • amy

      For the banana boat coupon, try opening up another browser, like firefox. Then after the first coupon prints, hit the back button on your browser once, then it should print again. I tried numerous times with no luck, then tried this. It worked!

    • Susie

      Hello! This will be my first CVS experience with ECB and deals. I just started couponing last week. Please let me know if you think this will work:

      1st visit:
      Buy Bayer Meter – 14.99
      Use Bayer Coupon – 30.00
      Total Due – Nothing
      Get back – $5 ECB

      2nd visit:
      Buy Gillette Fushion – 7.99
      Buy 2 Dawn – 1.00 each
      Use 2 .25 off coupons for Dawn
      Use 4.00 off Gillette coupon
      Use $5 ECB
      Total Due .49
      Get Back – $6 ECB

      3rd visit:
      Buy 2 Banana Boat @ 7.19 each
      Use 2 coupons for $2 off Banana Boat product
      Use $6 ECB
      Total Due = $4 something

      4th visit:
      Buy 1 Coppertone Product (we have four little girls who use sunscreen all summer)
      Get Free 12 pack Aquafina
      Use $3 off Coppertone coupon
      Use $7 free ECB
      Total Due – maybe free or at least cheap

      Do you think that will work? Is there anything special I should know about ECBs? Are there a limit to how many you can use in a day or anything like that? Is it just a coupon that prints out? I am very excited!!

      Thank you for your post! Amazing!


    • Stephanie

      Susie~ on your last deal just remember that they might have to push your ECB through if the coppertone isn’t over 10 dollars and you will lose what they push through. such as if your total was 9.50 BEFORE tax then you will lose .50 cents. In that case its better to grab a cheap candy bar for filler.

    • Susie

      Oh, thank you for the tip! No problem grabbing something to eat on my way out! :)

    • M Rose

      Pat-i get soooo frustrated with the kiosk!!! I ALWAYS scan mine and I get 1.00 off candy or 1.00 off some odd soap i never heard of!!!! I am jealous!!!

    • Sorry if this is a repeat but I don’t see my comment and didn’t see where it said it would show up after blog approval. If this is a duplicate comment, I apologize.

      I’ve been playing the drugstore game at CVS for about a month now, but I still get confused at times. I have come up with my scenario for next week and would love feedback as to whether or not I am figuring everything correctly. Thanks in Advance!

      I am starting off with $10 ECB (4ecb-4ecb-2ecb)and (2) $4/$20 Q’s

      Transaction 1
      (8) Dove deodorants @ 2.50 each = $20
      (1) $4/$20 =$16
      (8) $1 Q’s =$8
      Use (2) 4 EB = pay tax only
      Get $10 ECB, leaving me with 12 ecb (2ecb and 10ecb)

      Transaction 2
      (1)Gillette Fusion @ 7.99
      (5) Colgate toothbrushes (4 @ 1.99 & 1 a little over $1.99 – I’ll use 2.50 as a hypothetical) = $10.46
      (2) Always Pads @ $3 each = $6
      (2) Dawn Dish Soap @ $1 each = $2
      Subtotal- $26.45
      (1) $4/$20 = 22.45
      (1) $4Q for fusion = 18.45
      (5) 0.75 Q for Colgate toothbrushes = $14.70
      (1) $1/2 Q for Always = $13.70
      (2) 0.25 Q for Dawn = $13.50
      Use $12ecb and pay $1.50 oop
      Get back $12 ecb

      So, I would pay $1.50 + tax oop for both transactions and leave with 2 more ecb than I started with, if I’m calculating everything correctly and using the $4/$20 correctly.

      Is this right?

      Also, will my ecb print separate for each product since I am doing them all in the same transaction? Like will I leave with a 4 ecb for gillette, 5 ecb for Colgate, 2 ecb for Always, and a 1 ecb for dawn to total $12ecb or will it print out as 1 $12 ecb?

      Sorry for the long scenario! I appreciate any help anyone can offer! TIA!!

    • No KIOSK in Rock Hill, SC..what state you in with the KIOSK?

    • Clare

      I’ve noticed you mention the $3 off $15 or $4 off $20 coupons from CVS before. I signed up on the website ages ago, but never received any of these coupons. Any ideas on how to make sure I’m getting them?

      Also, for anyone in the Greensboro NC area – is there a CVS with the kiosk? The one near my house doesn’t have it :(

      Many thanks!

    • Katrina

      Do the receipt coupons which read “$3 off CBS Brand Purchase of $15 or more” really only work on all CVS brand items? I seem to remember once I used one of these when I had only one CVS brand item, but my total was over $15. Anyone have tips on how/when to use these to the best advantage?

    • I got a $5/$30 coupon in my inbox this week, and I want to try and pull together enough deals to use this. I was wondering, does the $30 total need to be AFTER coupons, or will it work if your total is $30 BEFORE all your coupons, and you hand them this $5/$30 first, and then your other coupons. Will they get mad?

    • Lynda


      Give the cashier the $5/30 coupon first, then any other coupons. It shouldn’t make them mad at all. Happy CVSing.

    • Sign up here for $2 off febreze detergent to use at CVS


    • Jennifer

      I am new to the drugstore scene. How are you using multiple coupons when they are coming from the newspaper inserts?


    • Carrie

      I printed 2 Banana Boat coupons. I printed the first one by registering myself. I printed the 2nd one by registering my husband.

    • Amanda

      I have a question, I found that CVS has in store coupons that you can print at home and they say on them “CVS/pharmacy coupon” now can I use that + a manufacturer Q? If anyone has the answer please let me know THX a bunch!!!

      • Jenny


        you can use both coupons!

    • Jenni

      I was wondering if anyone had good ideas on filler items. I want to use multiple ECB’s in one transaction, plus q’s for each item and I have a $5 off $30 q. I know about the picture as a cheap filler but that only works once.

    • Trish

      Jenni, at some of the CVS stores around here, they will have a bowl or basket around the register area with .33 caramels in them. I will usually grab a few just in case i need them.

    • Tanya

      I just got back from my 24 hour CVS (there registers are programmed at midnight on Sat. am for the start of the following weeks sales). Anyway, when I tried to use the printable Banana Boat coupons for 2.00 each the cashier said they got an email from corporate and they can no longer take internet coupons unless its from their CVS website! Anybody else heard this?

    • Susan

      I’m new to CVS and I’m trying to remember if you can have more than one transaction in one visit. Such as, I go and complete one transaction, get my ECB, then can I turn around go get more items and check out using my ECB’s?

    • Julie from Sumter

      I have 10 ECB’s…..I’ll get coupons this Sunday…HELP me with a bargain!!

    • Lorie

      I printed 2 banana boat coupons by hitting my back button 3 times and another one printed.

    • Beth

      Do u think it’s worth it for me to buy 5 papers at 1.75 a piece to get the toothbrush deal? I don’t know? Anyone want to share an experience?

    • Tina

      What is this kiosk that everyone is talking about??

    • I posted my scenario I wanted to try late last night so I could make sure I was figuring everything correctly, but it’s not showing up… any reason why?

    • nevermind… scenario showing up now, but no feedback on it as of yet.

    • tonya


      i could and still can ready your post on the 6th fine. it looked GREAT to me. you look like a pro!

      yes, your ecb’s will print seperately at the end of your receipt.

    • tonya


      yes, i think it is worth it to buy 5 papers…not just for this deal but for all the other coupons you get this week. i usually buy six papers a week. keep them for later deals. the benefits will be great, especially if you follow jenny’s posts weekly.


      thanks a bunch for the coupon book link!

    • tonya


      i’ve never heard this from my cvs. hopefully this is a “misinformed cahier” and not the case. maybe try calling the store manager tomorrow to confirm/dismiss.

    • Jen

      In the buy $15 get $5 ecb for the chocolate deal, the Mars candy bars are King size. I was going to get this deal last night, but when I looked on my coupon, it had specific sizes (1.16-2.13 oz). All of the mars King size bars are larger than this that I found. Is it still ok to use the coupon? Or does anyone know if the smaller bars will also generate the ECB?

    • Cori

      Check different stores for prices on the paper. I go to Walgreens and their paper is .88. Walmart is .98. Also I went into Rite Aid last week on Monday morning and they had their leftover Sunday papers at $.75!

      Also with the Fusion deal ECB, there is a $2.00 Q for the venus razors, it wouldn’t be quite free ($2.00 after ECB).

    • My RP does not have a asingle dove coupon and my SS only has coupons for toothpaste. Nothing for toothbrushes!! This is so unfair! I was so excited about my CVS deals this week and it’s just gone down the drain!

    • Cori

      Also, I don’t have the coupon for the toothbrushes, just colgate Toothpaste, anybody else with this problem – I hate missing the ecbs and good toothbrush prices.

    • lynn

      family is its own reward has a lot of dove coupons in it would work good with this weeks sale

    • Katherine

      If anyone is factoring the Pampers Deal into the CVS purchase for this week, make sure to print the ad to take to the store with you because the ECB are not printing on their own. If you need the ad, go to the CVS website, then to the baby section. There is an ad for the $8.99 pampers. Click on the ad itself and will take you to the page where it shows $5 ECB when you buy a pack of $8.99 pampers for this week.

      Went to CVS this morning for all my bargains. I had 3 transactions to get max value out of my ECBs. After my second transaction, the cashier said, “There is a 2 transaction limit.” I asked since when, she said “this week”. I asked why. She explained that people are holding up the lines and making other customers upset. The funny thing is, I was the only person in the store! You have got to be kidding me. I tried to reason with her, but she did not budge. I had to get a manager. They finally did it, but I explained I would not be back to that location and will email corporate about it. That store would rather loose all my business than complete 3 transactions. That is just stupidity if you ask me! So be careful ladies…beware the transaction police! :)

    • Cori-I don’t have the toothbrush Q either… only toothpaste. I also don’t have Dove coupons.

      Lynn-what is Family is it’s own reward?

    • Pat

      M Rose,

      I get the coupons for $1.00 off something like crackers or cookies sometimes. But in my experience just about every other time I scan my card I get a $4 off $20 Q.

      I have about 4 of them now. I will be using them on the pamper deal. Whoo Hoo!!!!
      8.99×2 pampers
      bogo mars candy
      Use $4 off $20 q
      use $1 off pamper
      use bogo q
      get back $5.00
      works for me.

    • Pat

      When an ad says limit 3, does that mean 3 per day?

      Once I bought some spices from CVS that were limit 6 in the ad. The manager said I could come back the next day and do another 6 for the same price. They know I am an avid card user, so I did what he said and it worked. I know the ECB’s wouldn’t work that way. But could I do the Papers deal more than 3 times? It doesn’t have a limit on ECB that I can see.

      I have a toddler and would love to stock pile the easy ups

    • Sindy

      Reidville Rd, Spartanburg Store (next to Bilo)
      The Coppertone are $9.99 not 7.19…
      The Pampers deal didnt work, but the asst mgr gave me $5 ECB on 1 pack (she wldnt let me do the max of 3) as I took the printed page from the Pampers site,(take it with you and keep it) she said come back tomorrow with the printed page as the registers may not have been updated…
      I will try again 2moro, 3 bucks for diapers with coupon is something to shout about…. Thx Jenny…

      PS, It wld be nice if all of you that left comments, state where you shop….

    • lynn

    • lynn

      family is it s own reward is a coupon book i got at publix also the concereirge coupon book has a few dove coupons

    • Jennifer

      I’m new to this…for the Dove deal, can I use the $1.25 on any one Dove Visibly Smooth Anti-Perspirant/Deodorant? Also, I have one that expires today for $1.25 on any one Dove Go Fresh Anti-Perspirant/Deodorant, can I use that? Thanks!

      • Jenny


        You can use the ones that expire today! If you get the visibly smooth deodorant you could use that coupon too.

    • Jennifer

      Is the visibly smooth deo the same price 2/$5 and the Go Fresh deo the same price as well? Thanks for your help!

    • diane

      Can you get the bater meter without a prescription? That seems to start a lot of the scenarios. (I am a definite newbie – you guys are great!)

    • I don’t know if my question showed up or not. I am a newbie. Can you get a bayer meter without a prescription?

    • Jen

      Hey everyone,
      The dove Go Fresh and Ultimate Smooth were not part of the 2/$5. They also did not have the buy $20, get $10 ecb deal posted under them, so be careful if you are going to try it, I don’t know if they will work or not.

    • Jen

      *CLarification of above: Go Fresh and Ultimate Smooth DEODORANT were not on sale.

    • Julie from Sumter

      The Colgate toothbrush coupon is in the P&G coupon bundle.

    • Dede

      Has anyone located the Osteo Bi-flex coupons? I’m in Georgia and can’t find it… argh!!! My hubby desperately needs this for his knee.

    • jenna

      Dede I think I might still have these coupons, ill check for you and if I do I can mail them to you : ) email me at babygirlruca@yahoo.com to remind me lol I forget things easy lol

    • Melba

      For the Dawn Deal, I think I must have used a 1.50 off 2 (really didn’t mean to) and it went through, giving me overage!! :) Just wanted to share to see if it works for anybody else

    • chrissy

      I was also wondering about the pampers deal. I only did it once today but was wanting to do it again tomarrow. I overhead a cashier say that it was one per household not one per purchase, so will it show up on my card that I’ve already done the deal? Also, if I get someone else to purchase it for me, can I still use the $5 ecb since they purchased using their card?

    • Adele

      June 7th, 2009 at 9:49 am
      In the buy $15 get $5 ecb for the chocolate deal, the Mars candy bars are King size. I was going to get this deal last night, but when I looked on my coupon, it had specific sizes (1.16-2.13 oz). All of the mars King size bars are larger than this that I found. Is it still ok to use the coupon? Or does anyone know if the smaller bars will also generate the ECB?

      Good question… has anyone tried the smaller bars yet?

    • Jen

      Hey Adele,
      This is Jen from comment 51. I went today and the M&M minis are prat of the king size $2/2 and are within the weight limits of the coupon. That was the only thing I could find, so I used it on them. Still not sure about the smaller bars.

    • Check your vocal point mailer coupons. Mine acutally had a BOGO for mini wheats. Looking forward to 2 free boxes!

    • I thought you needed a prescription for the meter???

      • Jenny

        There is no prescription needed to purchase a glucometer. My other job (before kids and before Southern Savers was as a RN) and I would recommend that every house have one as a precautionary purchase. If you were diabetic the only thing that would require a prescription would be the syringes and medication if you needed them.

    • Teresa-QOCD

      Just a thought, you can purchase a Bayer meter without the coupon and send in the rebate if you can wait on your money. This would be a way to get the 5 ECBs. Think thats what I’ll do cause I aint got no more Q’s

    • Jennifer

      Did anyone find Banana Boat for $7.19? The CVS in Trussville, AL only has prices starting at $9.99

    • Thanks Jenny for clarifying that!
      I will buy one and maybe donate to a shelter!

    • I think I got confused because I saw on the Bayer website there is a coupon and it says “Take this coupon along with your prescription to your nearest pharmacy.” Then it says to the pharmacist “Only accept coupon with a prescription…”

    • Stella

      Hey, Jennifer, I also experienced the Banana Boat sticker shock. Madison, AL, price is also 9.99 for sunscreens. There was a aloe lotion-type BB product for 7.99, but NOTHING in BB line for less than that. Where does the Southern Saver price info originate?

    • amy

      What is the $120 savings rebate booklet?

    • cherie

      Does CVS NOT accept printed coupons??? Went to the store a few days ago with a few coupons I printed off the internet for $2.00 of Jumbo Pampers and they would not accept printed coupon. Huh??

    • Jennifer

      Just got back from CVS and I got the gillette fusion and 2 bottles of Dawn, used the coupons and paid 94cents oop. Got the ECB’s and it printed $10 off of $30 purchase!

    • Jenny from FL

      I went to CVS yesterday to do the diaper deal among others and I took the print out of the web page with me. I asked ahead of time what the limit was and how many times I could get the $5 ECB and showed them the print out. They took it to the back and came back a few minutes later and said that I had to buy 2 packages of diapers to get the $5 ECB. I asked how they figured that since the ad clearly didn’t state that and she said that they just had a conference call about it and that was their decision. HUH!!!!!!!!??????????? Am I the only one who experienced this frustration? I’m going to e-mail corporate in a few minutes for a clarification.

      Jennifer…the only Banana Boat for 7.19 was the aloe stuff here in Merritt Island FL. Our stuff was 9.99 and up! Sticker Shock!!!

      Note to everyone………check the prices at YOUR store before you figure your deals.

    • Jennifer

      On the colgate deal, the only toothbrush CVS had that was $1.99 was the Colgate Plus and the coupon says “Colgate 360, Max Fresh, Max White or Kids Manual toothbrush” Has anyone tried this deal yet? Just wondering if they are taking the coupon on the Plus? All of the others were $3.49 and up.. I’m still new to this and I don’t want to goof up. Thanks!

    • Meg

      On the second part of your starter scenario, you should be getting back $5 ECB, not $6. Am I missing something?

    • Anne

      Why do you have to ask them to “adjust” it down to $4.99 when you have a $5.00 ecb? can you pay with an ecb that’s more than amount? Don’t you just lose a penny? Or will they not let you do that? I have always owed something, so I have not encountered that yet, but it’s good info to know!

    • Tammy C.

      I have a question about the razors…if you purchase 1 each of the three different types listed for the ECB…do you get an ECB for each one? Thanks!

    • Kim

      I could only get one Banana Boat coupon. How do you get two of the $2.00 coupons? Thanks so much for all your help.

    • Heather

      Has anyone had a problem with the Dasani water deal? I bought four packs (4/$13) with $3ECBs and realized that I was charged $16 for all four and didn’t get any ECBs. What should I do now? I was in a rush trying to get my daughter to practice and didn’t check it like I know I should.

    • Carrie

      Here’s my rack-up from yesterday!:
      Bought 4 Dove Hairsprays, used (4)$1/1 coupons
      Bought 2 Dove Deodorants, used (1)$1.50/2 coupon
      Bought 2 Dawn Dishsoaps at $1 each, used (2) .25/1 coupons
      Bought 2 Frosted Mini Wheats cereals (BIGI), used (2) $1/1 coupons
      Bought 2 Special K cereals (BIGI), used (2) $1/1 coupons
      Bought 1 Schick razer, used (1) $4/1 coupon
      And since my sub total had to equal over $40 to get to use my $5 off, I added a small bag of gummy wormss for filler (.88).
      She took off the $5/$40, then she took off all the coupons. Then I handed her all my ECB’s from last week (except one ECB coupon that I kept because I didn’t want it to be downgraded) and I owed her $2.14 for an order that started roughly $40.50! And on my receipt printed 10 ECB from my Dove purchases, 1 ECB from my Dawn dishsoap purchases, and 4 ECB from my razor purchase. Add these to the 2 ECB I still had in my purse and I have 17 ECB for next week! With only $2.14 out of pocket! Where but CVS can you walk away with $40 of product for only $2?!! And have them give you the money to bring back so you can do this again next week! I love this store!
      Dove totals equaled over $20 so I got my 10 ECB at the end of the transaction

    • beth

      Carrie—WOW! that’s great. I’m so new to this and only did CVS once but left with no ECB left over (which I seem to do each time when I go to Walgreens) I love getting all this stuff, but each week I have to start over with no ECB or RR. How do u guys do it?

    • m

      I used to receive “$4 off when you buy more than $20” coupon often, but I have been receiving “$10 off when you buy more than $50” recently. I usually don’t spend more than $50, so I can’t use the coupon. Can I use the $10 off coupon as “$4 off when you buy more than $20”? (same percentage of discount. 20%) I am really frustrated…

    • Jessica

      You probably would have run into trouble with your original scenario because you had more coupons than items. You would have needed to throw in a couple of small filler items (need to have at least as many items as coupons) for transaction #1.

      I haven’t tried the Dasani water deal, but you should take your receipt, CVS card and the ad back to the store and ask to speak to the manager. They should be able to make the correction and push the ECBs through. However, if you had already done the same deal this week (with either the water or Coke), this may have happened because the deal limit is 1.

    • I have been doing CVS for years, but do not see such high Q off products. LIke $30? Where do I print this? Where is this $30 Bayer coupon? Or is it a monthly ECB for June? What is SS? A southern coupon book? I am in Chicago area.

      Tammy, the limit on the razors is 1. It says in the ads how many you can get. The cash register knows how many you are allowed, and it prints on your receipt when you reach the limit. The register will not give you more bucks than you can get for that offer. If you buy 2 items and it is limit 1, it will only give you ECB for 1. If you come in tomorrow and try again, it will not give you any more.

      • Jenny


        SS – is Smart Source the name of one of the inserts in your Sunday paper. The Bayer coupon was in the newspaper inserts on the dates listed above.

    • Nikki

      Rock Hill residents-
      The Celanese CVS has 112 ct. Kleenex for $0.60. I had coupons stating buy 3, get $0.50 off. I found a package of Huggies 56 ct diapers in 90% off cart (perfect basket filler for this weekends baby shower).

      All in all: 9 boxes of tissue and 1 package of diapers = $2.48

      I’m feeling better good this morning!!!

    • Caryn

      I’ve done the glucose meter deal before, but the ladies in the store where I usually go told me that they didn’t accept the manufactures coupon for that deal anymore. Can they do that?

    • Heather


      Thanks for the advice. I called CS this morning and they credited everything over the phone. Yeah!!! because I have little ones and didn’t want to take them and the purchases back in the store. They were very nice and helpful.

      Here’s my deal for this week:

      2 Dawn Dishsoaps at $1 each, used (2) .25/1 coupons
      4 Frosted Flakes (BIGI)$5.19, used (4) $1/1 coupons
      1 Gillette Fusion razer $7.99, used (1) $4/1 coupon
      2 Covergirl Outlast $6.99, used (2) $2/1 coupons
      1 Covergirl Mascara $4.99, used (1) $1/1 coupon
      4 Dasani 12pk water 4/$13

      Price before $60.53
      Price after $10/$30, $10 ECB, and Q’s = $17.47 with $11 ECBS (71% savings)

    • Jennifer

      FYI if you have the $1.25 coupons for Dove visibly smooth or go fresh deodorant you can use those on the regular deodorant that is on sale 2/$5. Just got this deal last night.

    • Ginger

      I did the Pampers deal twice this week, taking a copy of the CVS website printout with me each time (at 2 different stores, too, b/c they ran out of the size I needed). On 6/7, the ebs didn’t print, and the managers discussed it and ended up giving me 5 ebs for each of the 3 packages of pampers, but since they couldn’t get them to print, they just put $15 on a gift card. Yesterday, I went to a different store with the printout, and they would only give me 5 ebs on one package of the diapers, but they also had to put it on a gift card. Now, the CVS website has taken that add down, but the website iheartcvs.com has a link to the old CVS website add. Some of you might still have some success with it if you take a copy of the old add in with you….GOOD LUCK!

    • Tammy C.

      Does anyone know CVS’s price on the Off Clip On Mosquito Repellant? They are $1 off (in ad special), CVS Pharmacy has a coupon for 3.00 off, MQ for 2.00 off, plus the BOGO coupon from Off’s website should equal a fairly decent price on two!

    • Kim

      Yes, here in Georgia they are $8.99 (Regular Price) BOGO. I found a great deal yesterday (6-9) with the OFF clip on Mosquito repellent. There is a buy one, get one free coupon on the OFF website and a $3 coupon on CVS website. There is also a $2 off MQ and you can use all three. At least they let me use mine and I ended up paying a total of $3.59 for both!

    • Went to CVS this evening to pick up the DAWN purchased seven. The first I did I got the ECB, then just went ahead and purchased the other five because I had coupons they ended up being about 14cents a piece, but I also got ECB again, so you may want to try the deal in separate transactions as I did two and received two ECB…just a thought, the cashier was shocked also.

    • Brooke Gallaway

      Has anyone had problems finding Banana Boat Sunscreen for 7.19 (listed as the starting price in the add)? They were all 9.99 or more at my CVS. I drive by two CVS’ everyday going to and from work and I’ve only stopped by one so far, but I was just curious if anyone actually found it at 7.19? I live in Central FL.

    • Jennifer

      Brooke Gallaway, I wasn’t able to find the Banana Boat for that price either. I’m in Trussville, AL and they start at 9.99 at both stores near my house.

    • tonya

      where is the month of the issue listed on the cvs reinventing beauty magazine?

      i just realized that the copy i bought a few days ago…all the coupons in the center EXPIRED IN 2008! SERIOUSLY! i can’t find a month on the magazine anywhere. i’m a little ticked off about them selling this magazine that apparently was from last year sometime. now i know to always check the coupon dates before purchasing it.

    • First time ECBer…..

      So I got my first $5 ECB by doing the candy deal. I got 4 bags of Lindt Truffles (variety bags). I had a MFQ for 1.00 off the bag of Stracciatella so that was another bag (total of 5). 2 packs of orbit gum. Plus I needed some excedrian migraine (the only thing that touches a sinus headache behind the eye for me). Had a 1.00 of MFQ for that too.

      So my 2 questions are (to make sure I’m getting this right) can I cut the 5 Extra Bucks receipt at the bottom and I can use this $5 on any other purchase right?

    • Missy

      what does PG mean. I need the coupon for the gillette razors and I don’t know where to go

      • Jenny

        PG means Procter and Gamble insert from the Sunday paper. These were in the paper last sunday.

    • Crystal

      My CVS would no longer accept a coupon for the Contour Meter Deal. The ad states no other discounts can be given. Bummer! I still got great deals and left with $6 in ECB, though!
