      Thanks! I just started couponing in October and at the beginning of the month I started my first donation box. I am super pumped to be able to put free cough syrup in it! This year I have named “The Year of Giving!” or “The Karma Points Year!”. I think I am getting more excited about my donation box than I do about putting stuff in my small stockpile.

      • Babydoll

        I am new to couponing too. I've always only donated food and I've never given it straight to a food bank or shelter…it was through my kids' school or our church. Where could I donate over the counter medicine to? I would like to be able to donate things like this as well.

        • Ucmba97

          We have a fre clinic in our area that welcomes over the counter meds, tissues, instant coffee, paper towels, hand sanitizer, and office supplies. good luck and god bless you.

    • Does the coupon work the last time it didn't.

    • Nysummer2010

      use the printed coupon @ RiteAid TWICE (the system “beep”) and they refused to accept the coupon :((
      will try CVS later…hopefully get some lucks :)

      • Let us know how it goes !!

        • Nysummer2010

          worked PERFECTLY !! my CVS doesn't put yellow tag sign for this either. When I checked with the magic coupon machine, it showed the price is $5 and the coupon did “beep” while I presented it…but the cashier was nice enough to deduct $1 from the transction…so make $1 profit :)))
          also get some lucks today for getting a coupon from the machine of $3 off any 2 (500ml Listerine mouthwash or Reach floss). So you can either get 2 Reach floss-55 yards for FREE or have 2 Listerine mouthwash for $1 with coupons)

      sorry, what does ECB mean?

      • Jeff

        read the getting started guide – top of the page – right hand corner

      • Elainehn2002

        ECB = Extra Care Bucks
        Jeff is right … the getting started guide is a great help … but I don't think it hurts to just answer the question AND point out the guide too. :-)

      If you haven't sorted through your inserts yet, there's a $1.50 in 1/24/10 RP!

      • Erindixon520

        awesome! I would've totally missed this, thanks!

    • keri

      Just went to my CVS and there was no sale tag or ECB tag. I took it up to the magic coupon machine and scanned it and it was coming up as $7.49…not sure if I would get $5 ECB so I didn't try it. Anyone else in Columbia, SC have any luck with this deal?

      • Struckdeals

        Maybe it was a different size bottle? THE ECBs will often only work for a certain size. Just a suggestion.

      • Sean

        Perhaps you did what I did. I had the Children's Chestal. It scanned at $7.49. The adult version has a regular price of $7.49, but, when I scanned it, it scanned for $5.

      • keri

        I did make sure it was the right size bottle but I do think I had the children's version and not the adult so that must have been the problem. Thanks for the tip! I'll try again tomorrow.

    • Sc-dragonfly

      keri…no luck here either in west columbia,SC

    • Heatherlbaxley

      I purchased the last bottle at the cvs on knox abbott by bilo in Parkland Plaza!!!

    • Lori

      The CVS in Mooresville, NC only had the children's syrup which was ringing at 7.49 so I didn't purchase it. Didn't see any of the adult kind.

    • mrs. b

      Got mine in South Florida for $5 and $5ecb back! The machine would not take the coupon but my wonderful CVS employee manually entered it! Paid $4 oop got back $5ecb!

      • Amy

        The same thing happened to me. My coupon didn't work so they had to manually enter it. I'm glad they took it.

    • Nessa350

      I did with no problem. Printed the coupon online, spent $4.00 out of pocket and received $5.00 ecb. Limit 1 per CVS card

    • Mysterious_Mentalist

      The reason coupon is not good because you have to buy two products one 4.2 oz “AND” 8.45 oz together as “one purchase.” Hence, the beep (on only one scanned item.)

      • Andre

        It simply means that there are two sizes. They don't expect you to buy two bottles.

    • Melissa

      I was able to use the coupon at our CVS, however, the only thing on sale was the adult cough syrup, not the childrens.

    • Shopgirlmgr

      was in my cvs tonight and they have marked down all there freebreeze flameless started kits to 3.75 coupon in this past pg is for 5.00 off makes them free i paid .92 cents for 5 of them.

    • Nysummer2010

      FYI….Revlon nail polish is 75% off….the lowest one you can get is $4.99…after discount would be $1.25 – $1 off coupon on 1/16SS (nail product) = 25 cent !!

    • Sdavisva

      Curious question…I know some people are having their coupon 'beep'. Did anyone else have the cashier tell them that the computer is telling them it's a fraudulent coupon? Thankfully, I had picked up one with a peelie on it. I just said that I thought it was weird since I printed it directly from the company's website. Then I said, “here, I'll just use this coupon on the package.” Not a big deal, I just found it strange.

      Boiron makes a great product and has helped keep my kids from getting sick, sick when they get a sniffle or start feeling run down!
