    • Frances Trapnell

      Hi! Thanks for having such a great website. I am addicted to CVSing!!!! Your CVS 101 is very informative…… My sister got me started on CVS a couple of weeks before Thanksgiving ( I live in GA she lives in SC) Anyhow…………….I called her one day to tell her of the great deals I got (I was still quite the novice). “She asked, how much did you pay out of pocket?” I said, $20 and she replied “Oh…we’ve got to do better than that) So, when my husband and I went up to SC for Thanksgiving…..She showed me the ropes with the help of your website…..I took my husband into CVS with me on Thanksgiving night and I bought everything we needed plus a couple of little xtras he wanted. You guys will never guess how much I spent……I think it was like $4.13. I looked up at my husband with a sweet little grin and he gestured back the same. The cashier said, ” Well are you proud of her”? and he replied “yes, I am always proud of her……the next day i went in with my sister and everything i got free w/ my ECB’s…………..then i came home got a ton of stuff we needed in household items and only paid 0.29 cents…….Well, I could keep going………I am so excited about CVS. It has saved our home a ton of money………YIPPY!!!! thanks again, Frances T. from GA

    • Blair

      Oh and everyone else that is planning for the upcoming 2 day sale.
      There are rebates available for Zantac and Exedrine. (couponclippers.com has those forms available if needed)
      So out of pocket for that day if you start out with those 2 items would be $0 after rebates/plus you would get the ECBs for those 2 items.
      (I haven’t read all the fine print on the rebates, but I am sure they would have to be your first transaction. Pretty sure that you can’t get a rebate if you use ECBs.)

    • Sara

      Thanks for the new look…Im new and just got used to the old look.
      Appreciate all your efforts!

      :) Thanks!
