CVS: Hidden Wipes Deal

on 2.22.2010 at 9:28pm

This post may contain affiliate links. Read our disclosure here.


Huggies Wipes tubs are on sale $2.50 ea.  But…

Huggies Wipes 216 ct Refills are also ringing up $2.50!! This is awesome!

To make it better, if your store has a price scanner scan your CVS card.  Many are reporting getting a $2 off Huggies Wipes CVS coupon that prints.  That means 50 cents for a refill pack!!

I’m already in my pajama’s but am so tempted to go out for this one!


I couldn’t stand it so I got dressed and hit the store 10 minutes before they closed.  Here is an image of the CVS price scanner showing the deal.  It was a small thrill to get wipes for so cheap!!


(thanks Shannon!)

See the rest of the CVS Deals for this week.

    • Kim

      I wish I lived close to you Jenny…I'd go get the deal for you! I guess I could bring it to you at the workshop in Marietta on Thursday…..

      • That's very sweet to offer! I just decided to take a risk and wait till the morning. I'm already debating getting up super early for pancakes with the kids so why not add a super early CVS run too the trip.

        • Josie

          I'm doing the same thing…pancakes at IHOP and then CVS for wipes! :)

    • sweet! i guess i know where i'll be heading tomorrow after i drop the kids off at school! thanks jenny!

    • amynycol

      I just got the cvs store coupon this evening. When I buy the wipes and use my $2off coupon can I stack a 50cent manf. coupon with it to make it free? Thanks

      • If you have one you can. The only ones out are from home mailers though all the insert ones expired last week :(

        • holly

          I got a new huggies mailer 2 weeks ago. The new coupons expire 4/30.

    • Teresa

      How does the scanner work?? I'm not a regular at CVS. “To make it better, if your store has a price scanner scan your CVS card. Many are reporting get a $2 off Huggies Wipes CVS coupon that prints.”

      • Nicole

        CVS has scanners just like Target has on a couple of their aisles. The scanners are not very big but majority of the stores should have them. If you scan your cvs card at one of them it also prints coupons (not every time).

      • Joy S

        Yes, I tried one of these scanners once or twice. It is usually at the front door and it says scan you card for coupons.Does anyone know how many you can buy if you get the coupon?

    • Stefanie

      WOO HOO! I know where i am going in the morning. We just ran out of wipes! :)

    • Jennifer

      Okay so I was in my pj's but I headed out for this deal and was not disappointed! My CVS card did not print out a $2 off q but I had a 50 cents off from a home mailer. So I got 216 wipes for $2.16 after taxes!!! I went out tonight because you know how CVS corprate is, if they find out they made a mistake they will correct it the next day and I will miss out. Not saying they shouldn't but I wanted my cheap wipes!

      • m111971

        I just got back from my quick run to the CVS – I was at work when I read this and I just couldn't wait to go get them. I have twins so this deal is awesome for me. I scanned my card and out popped a $5 off $15 and a $2 wipes coupon. I bought for packs and the Earinse and used my $10 EB from the P&G deal so out of pocket was $1.80 and then I got back the $7.99 EB for the Earinse. A great morning at the CVS. Thank you so much for posting this.

    • Kristen

      almost went out this evening to use a $5 off $15 q. will definitely go out tomorrow.

    • Trevor

      It for sure worked for me 2/$5.00 :) thanks for the heads up. I ran out @ 9:50 and just made it before 10pm! phew!

    • aprilorr

      I am studying for a graduate final and I just read this post! I really needed this laugh!!- just picturing a women running out in her PJs at 10:15 at night for baby wipes= that made my day:)

      • seemomsave


        We mothers will do that and not think twice about it! ;p Good luck on your final!

      • Barb

        I found it very funny, too. It's still a bit cold here to be running out in late evening.

        Well, not to mention that we don't need wipes on a regular basis, and it is so freeing….My last child is in kindergarten and I just about feel like I won the lottery. Not that I don't want my kids around, but working with them through school is a long, involved journey. One will graduate in two years.

        Now when I see wipes and diapers at the store, I praise the Lord for bringing me to this point.

        But, my neighbor across-the-street is CVS night manager, so maybe she will help me score some deals if I ask her. I've never done anything at CVS but fill a scrip.

    • Lana

      Worked for me! Bought 3 packs! My coupon that printed when I scanned my card was $4 off of $20. May go back and check again tomorrow! It's the little things that excite us!

    • Rachel

      This was so awesome! I used my ECB from last week and only paid 46 cents tax for two!

    • Alisa

      Thank you so much Jenny! I read your post at 9:30 CT and had just enough time to run up there before they closed. Sure enough I got the $2 off coupon from the machine and got 2 for $3- used $3 ECB and only paid .40 OOP. Also got a great laugh from the other posts!

    • Nicole

      Are there CVS stores that aren't open 24 hours? I didn't know that.

      • We have several CVS stores in Montgomery and only 1 is 24-hour. I wanna say the rest close at 8pm, but it might be 10pm.

        • dibeedee

          I'm in Montgomery too. I never get any $ off Qs from the scanner. In fact, it's mainly CVS/Gold Emblem brand Qs. Didn't get the Huggie's Q last night either. I was just wondering if you have been experiencing the same.

          • This morning I got a $5 off $15 coupon, a B1G1 Godiva chocolate bar coupon, and some pharmacy coupon.

            • dibeedee

              That gives me hope. Thanks for the info. Happy bargain shopping!

            • tonya jones

              Are you in Montgomery, AL, I am in Greenville, AL and ran out to our CVS last night and they rang up 7.99. POO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

            • Penny

              I missed out too. They are ringing up at 7.99 at the Toccoa, GA store too.

    • kate

      i just went and they rand 2.50. when the coupon printed the cashier crumbled it up and threw it away and said they couldnt give them out! i was so mad!! but still a good deal!

      • ShannonStrader

        Huh??? How can they do that?

        • Yacoomba

          I'm thinking the same thing **smh*** and scratching my brow

        • soymilk30

          I went at 9:30 AM and they threw away my coupon as well.

      • Mysterious_Mentalist

        Nothing makes me mad more than uneducated employees. They are spending million of dollars to get the coupons out to consumers. This employee simply threw a bucket of cold water onto their efforts. Please report this employee immediately. No one can decide what and what not to do on your transaction.

    • ShannonStrader

      I went out in my sweats. I just scored three packs. I stopped at the scanner and got a $2 off wipes coupon and a $4 off Huggies box diapers coupon. I used $2 off coupon, 50 cent off coupon, and 4 ECBs for (3) 184 ct sensitive Huggies wipes. OOP was $1.08. Totally made my evening. Freaked my hubby out when I asked him to pause 24 so I could make a CVS run.

    • jsimons13

      jenny, i was beginning to run low on wipes and figured id better get this one before they catch on… so i ran out in my pj's, lol. it was 5 min b4 they closed but i scanned my card and got the q and i had the .50 home mailer too. i figured i'd get two cant beat getting two refills for 2.50. thanks so much for this post and all you do! :)

    • zombiemommy

      I read Mercedes post tonight and decided I had to go to…. Got 4 packs for 10 bucks Sweet!

      • zombiemommy

        ps didn't get the huggie wipe coupon, but did get the huggies box $4 coupon.
        oh well.. still happy..

    • pharmSCgirl

      I don't have a baby, but I have been stocking up on some items. I have several friends who are starting to have kids and I want to have kids one day too. These things make great Baby Shower gifts or I can save baby stuff for when I have a kid. Thanks Jenny!

    • Yacoomba

      OMG!!! I was just at CVS and bought two of the regular tubs that were advertised 2/$5 using the $5 off $15 coupon that spit out the machine. I feel so sick now- I got the wipes free but still I could have had the big ones free. That's it I'm making a CVS run tomorrow now (BEFORE WORK). Thanks Jenny

    • lucy2778

      This is awesome! Will go out tomorrow after classes. Hope they still have the deal, I keep paying $15 for 480 Pampers wipes in Sams club. Would be nice to get a pack for $2.50!

      • TwinJoys

        If you have a Big Lots near you, give them a try. I just got a box of Huggies Sensitive wipes 768 ct for $18 (actually, less because they were having a special 20% off sale that day).

      • stefluvs2sign

        You can get the same for half the price if you switch to the Target brand of wipes…I mean hey you just wipe their butt and throw it away right? Why spend a ton of $$ on it!

    • Tiffany

      Just got wipes here in Florida for $2.50. My friend and I went in 5 minutes before close. I was so mad that she had a coupon and I didn't. It was still a good deal. :)

    • maehingo

      Something told me to check my favorite site before leaving work tonight…got off work at 11 pm… went to the 24 hour CVS, and BINGO…. a $5 off $15 printed from the magic coupon machine! All ( scented, unscented, hypoallergenic, shea butter) of the larger packs are ringing up $2.50, so I grabbed a flyer and saw that it was $2 for 5, no limit given. I got 6 packs to use the $5 off coupon, had $7 in ECB's, so was 3.63 OOP on a GIFT CARD….saved 44.94 this trip! I LOVE CVS… and yes, I left oodles for everyone else! Happy shopping!

    • Maehing O

      Check my favorite site before leaving work at 11 pm, and saw this deal. I headed right over to our 24 hour CVS, and I got a $5 off 15. Checked the add, they were 2 for 5 without a limit, so I got 6 to make $15. Had $7 inECB's and was 3.63 OOP on a GIFT CARD!!!! Love me some CVS, and some Jenny! And yes…. there were LOTS on the shelf! Happy shopping!

    • Heather V.

      Checked out at 24 hour CVS 12:03 am wipes are still ringing up 2/5.00. Went to coupon machine printed out 2.00 off wipes and .50 home mailer. (4)- rang up at $8.20
      Thats the price of one pack!!! I love it! I do, I do!!

      • julie

        i dont forsee corp fixing this by the am, however I live in FL and on central time so it might be fixed by the time my stores open at 8 am…wonder where corp is??? lol

        and how soon they take to FIX problems like this???

        • Heather V.

          CVS Headquarters in Rhode Island so I don't think they are changing the price for am!! Don't quote me ! The IT Dept. probably work 9-5. Well let's hope!

          • amich

            I hope so! I get off work at 7:30 am so i'm running over there right after! I live in Cleveland Ohio so ill let you all know if it works up here! Thanks everyone for the heads up!

            • I get off work at 7am and plan on making a run to the 24 hour store!!! It's a shame that I bought some last week at Publix for $5.99 (before coupons), but hey you can always stock up!!!

              Oh and Go Tribe!!! Being an Indians fan I never can resist a Go Tribe when I see someone from Cleveland!!!

        • gery220

          Hi Julie I live in Florida and I got my wipes 2/$5.00. I bought 4 packs had $7 ECB..OOP $3.70 (including tax)…however when I was checking out the manager was unplugging the cpn machine and said it was broken. I guess I made it just in time.

    • brodybugsmomma

      This is a great deal even if I don't get the coupon from the scanner. Has anyone else had the same problem as me with coupons from the scanner? Every time I go, I scan my card and the only coupons the scanner wants to give me are for CVS brand items like the cookies and nuts. I NEVER EVER get the money off a certain purchase amount or name brand coupon that I could stack with a manufacture's coupon. Does anyone know how the scanner determines which coupons you get? I am starting to think it must know how much I save there and doesn't want to give me a good coupon. :)

      • GAJenMom

        I have the same experience. It's been months since I've received a coupon for something other than CVS items. I wonder why?

      • Kim

        Same thing here. I keep scanning, but never get something besides Gold Emblem Nuts, candies, cookies and CVS products. I'm in Ohio though ????????????

        • anna

          save coupons for me …i live in SC….???mah!

        • Brandi

          I only get those on my printed coupons too and I buy all of my baby stuff at CVS so who knows what determines them! LOL!

      • Doc

        From my retail experience, I would have to assume they base it on purchases you have made using your card at CVS. Retailers use these cards to see what you buy. I have not purchased any “baby” items at CVS until now, so it did not print the $2 coupon for me either.

    • Melissa

      It's 7:40 AM Eastern Time here, and they are still coming up at $2.50!!!!!!!

      • Barb

        There's something about this that bothers me.

        At first, I thought CVS intentionally made the wipes this price.

        But many others seem to assume that they made a mistake, and are making no bones about profiting from a mistake.

        I know it's easy to see CVS and the maker of wipes as corporate entities with bottomless pockets.

        I know people who work for both companies, and Kimberly-Clark has a headquarters here where several of my friends work.

        I think about perhaps my teen daughter working at a fast food place and giving someone back too much change~I have been in that situation and given the change back.

        I have also been in the situation where a self-check register was giving back WAY too much change and I gave it back to the store manager and alerted them.

        These “mistakes” cost everyone money. Do you think companies do that much absorption of mistakes? No, nearly everything a company suffers financially, they pass to consumers.

        I know it's a “thrill” to get cheap wipes, but it's not even a necessity for children. We can use other things as wipes and it's only our need for convenience that makes us feel we “need” wipes. Besides, I doubt most people would even purchase wipes if the purchase of them was setting them back so hard they had to drop everything to get them inexpensively “before the store catches on.”

        Don't kill the CVS cash cow for a momentary pleasure.

        • Leisa


          Or it could be that CVS knows that there is a HUGE CVS'ing contingent of couponers and someone at corporate came up with this pricing strategy, coupled with releasing some cool coupon printouts at the machines to target just that “coupon shopping” niche. Somebody somewhere set that price and sent the program to spit out those coupons….coinky-dink? maybe, maybe not.

          There are these hidden deals every so often and I think they are great. I'm past the wipes stage in my family but I love to see all the excitement. CVS is my drugstore of choice now and I feel awesome when I have 10 or 15 ECB's going into a week. For me their marketing (?) is working.

          Honest Couponers aren't greedy & trying to put one over on the system, and the people who are don't give a hoo-ha about what other people say.

          • Barb

            I have no problem with the scenario you describe.

            But, and I don't shop at CVS often, it seems as if veteran CVS shoppers think it is a mistake~and are openly saying so.

            In a post subsequent to this one, a poster even mentions a manager questioning the price. Of course, managers may not know everything about pricing, but I would believe they are trained to recognize an obvious aberration.

            I love deals, really I do.

            But I do believe that if the unethical aspect of something is pointed out, some people who had not considered it may ponder it in the larger scheme. I'm not saying someone who went to get the deal (knowing it was a mistake) is a horrid person, merely that the excitement of the “find” clouded judgment.

            • Heather V.

              Thanks for your sincere concern. I will take that in to consideration! Thanks for bursting my bubble. Just a young mom getting excited over my clouded judgement…..

            • wendythelen

              you also have to realize that this mistake has been going on for over 48 hours and they have failed fix it. Maybe its not a mistake but an unadvertized deal for us. Huggies only stands to gain from this. They already got paid when CVS bought the product. Now CVS will buy more than normal to refill the shelves.

            • Leisa

              I see your point about an unethical aspect being pointed out which is why I beleive most of us love this site (in addition to the great deals of course!) I just beleive that it is just as likely it's marketing issue as a pricing mistake that people are then taking advantage of.

              I do beleive that if something feels a little hinky when you are doing it, then it probably is. I appreciate your perspective , Thanks:@)

        • Emily

          This doesn't hurt CVS or Huggies. They get us into their store and we buy things there that otherwise we would buy other places. I wonder how much it actually costs to make these wipes. Probably not much at all and they are probably marked up exorbitantly to start with.

          • Becky

            I agree. When i saw the CVS ad this week I wasnt going to go bc I only wanted the Tide and Cheerios(wasnt worth the stop). Once I saw the Huggies post, I went and bought the wipes, Tide, Cheerios, AND bread. Plus, a $2 coupon did NOT print for me, but I still bought them for $2.50 bc thats a good price for me. I think this was a mistake, but they arent fixing it bc it will still make them money. It's a win win. They make extra money on extra wipes(and other products) being sold and I get a good price on wipes!!!

        • Mysterious_Mentalist

          I am glad that we still have conscious-minded people in our decaying society. This is not to play down everyone else here. I agree that things like baby wipes are just our insane thirst for convenience, not a necessity-There are millions of people around the world who do not have even clean clothes to wear. Yet, we are crazy for so much convenience that we literally scavenge resources of the world at the expense of poor people of the world. Just regular piece of cotton can be reused for such purpose-I must also add the environment benefit to this. Little bit washing and reusing wouldn't hurt, but throwing that piles in garbage would.

          As far as the corporate profit and that everyone is paying stuff looks good in writing. But, reality is that prices and profit markup is already exorbitant. These “bargain hunters” you see here are just a fraction of buyers. Therefore, not much dent will be felt by the corporate world.

          • lizstlawrence

            “Just regular piece of cotton can be reused for such purpose-I must also add the environment benefit to this. Little bit washing and reusing wouldn't hurt, but throwing that piles in garbage would. “

            I totally agree!

            I cloth diaper and also use cloth wipes. My life is soooo much easier not having to run out in the middle of the night to buy those items! Yes, I still use the occassional disposable diaper and wipe and I am thankful when I get a pack or two when they are super cheap. But its nice not have to stress out about getting the absolute best deal on these “necessities”.

        • soymilk30


          Companies are making money hands over fists. For the few of us that are actually into coupons and deals, there are millions of people out here paying full price for every item that they buy. And that is probarly why they can do this deal.

          Companies are in the business to make money. And they want every single dime that we make. I just got a $500 power bill because “I” accidently left the heat on “Emergency Heat.” Do you think they are going give me money back for my mistake?

          If you don't feel good about this deal, please feel free to pay full price for your items.Companies will still make money regardless…

          • soymilk30

            Also in thinking about my reply, I want you to think about this.

            Companies have be reducing the amount of product that we get in everything that we buy now. Ice cream, cereal, vegetables, paper towels etc. but they are still charging us the same price if not more. Do you feel bad for them?

            And they watch everything that we buy. For example, Sauve had body wash on sale one week for $1.29 at Kroger. I had a coupon for $.50 and it made it $.29.

            The NEXT week the body wash went up to $1.69 and the coupons now are $.25. Do you feel bad for them? Kroger use to have 16 oz vegetables and now they are 10 oz but the same price of the 16 oz.

            CVS charges almost $8 for these refills. And I bet they have tons of consumers that buy them at this price.

            It's all about making money and saving money. You have to decide which side of the fence you want to be on. Companies have no loyality to you or me. The only thing that they care about is money. So why shouldn't I save mine?

    • Leah_in_SC

      I sooooo wish I would have seen this last night and I would have gotten up early to be there when they opened this morning. Now I'm at work for 8 more hours, just thinking it will be fixed by the time I get off and of course my stack of $.50 home mailer q's are at home taunting me. GRRR! Oh well, I definitely got a laugh at all of you who went out last night (some in pjs)…LOL. =)

    • I just got back from a 7 am run to CVS. I bought 9 packs and all rang up at $2.50 each. Sweet! We literally just ran out of our last wipe refill pack! My total after four $1/1 q's, one .75/1 q, one .50/1 q and a $3.50 ECB was a little over $14 for 9 refill packs. Thanks for the heads up on this Jenny!

    • chrissyp510

      I just got back from my store… they are still ringing up at 2.50! The manager came over and was asking if they are supposed to be that price so I'm wondering how long it will last. At the coupon kiosk it gave me a 5 off 15 so I got 6 packs of wipes for 10.55! Yay!

    • I just got two packs at 7:15 this morning, so it was still that price at this time. I also hit a nice little treat on the ol' CVS coupon scanner and got a $5 off $15 coupon and a B1G1 free Godiva chocolate bars up to $3.49 (actually cost $3.99, but oh well it was a nice treat). Added a few Cadbury's Cream eggs (my favorite) as filler items to get the total above $15 and walked out with 2 packs of wipes, 2 Godiva chocolate bars, 4 cadbury's creme eggs, all for $8.59 after tax.

    • martha74

      I wish I read this before, Yesterday I had to spend $14 ECB because the were going to expired yesterday, so I bought diapers, and today I realized I'm going to run out of wipes. Hopefully there is still at least one in the store when I get out from work.

    • m111971

      I just got back from my quick run to the CVS – I was at work when I read this and I just couldn't wait to go get them. I have twins so this deal is awesome for me. I scanned my card and out popped a $5 off $15 and a $2 wipes coupon. I bought for packs and the Earinse and used my $10 EB from the P&G deal so out of pocket was $1.80 and then I got back the $7.99 EB for the Earinse. A great morning at the CVS. Thank you so much for posting this.

    • mandy

      I went this morning in Jax, FL & the wipes did ring up at $2.50! I also got a $2.00 coupon, but not the $3/$15. That's ok! I bought 3 packs, had $4 in EB money & the $2.00 off CVS coupon. Total OP = $2.03!!

    • MimmieS

      So the deal is still going on?! :) I am waiting for my daughter to wake up so that we can scurry over there, but I was worried the deal ended last night! Great to know people are confirming it's still going on!

    • KJNsmom

      I got mine at the CVS in Newnan, Ga this morning. They had a few packs left. The unscented ones that are in the smaller pack (178 wipes) are also 2.50.

      I didn't get the $2 off wipes, but I did get a $5 off $15 which I never get.

    • Emily

      Just worked for me in VA at 8:00. Got two packs, all they had in the store. No coupons printed for me though. Grr. All I EVER get are those stinking CVS ones. I'm ready for some real coupons out of that machine.

    • wendythelen

      Just got back from CVS. Price still good as of 7:45 EST

    • Tmiller

      I just cannot wait until I can go to lunch so I can get my wipes. I know this is crazy but I just love a great deal!

    • carol

      you are so funny! I am so glad I found this site! Keep it comin' cause I love every bit of it.

    • brianne

      I never need to buy wipes again! 10 packs for 25.00 minus 7 in ECB. I'm all for it. I wish I had coupons, but that ok !

    • stephanie

      Just worked for me. There were only two left in the store!! That made my day :) I have a 8 month old and another on the way. Thank you Jenny

      Ok. I went to one CVS and they didn't have any of the Huggies Wipes 216 ct Refills. I went to a second one and they had the deal.

      But she threw away my coupon. I was angry about it and started to saying something but maybe they have been told to disregard the coupon.

      • Emily

        I’d write CVS.com and complain for sure. You may get some ECBs or a coupon out of it. Store employees have no right to throw away your coupon with your name on it. I guess they can decide to refuse you to use it, but they should definitely give it back. How rude.

    • hestws

      So wanted to go out last night, but I resisted. My husband and I went in this morning and they did ring up $2.50. We got 2 tubs, 4 refills and I used a $5 off $15 and I had a $2 off wipes. Total OOP…..$8.56

    • deniseCLT

      THANK YOU!! I went in at 8:45 this morning. My card scanned a $2 coupon and I had 4 manu coupons ranging from .50 to $1 off. I bought 4 refill packs for $5!! Amazing :-)

    • katpauz

      I just returned form CVS and the deal is still on, however the ECB did not print out. I did have a .50 coupon (covered the tax) and $5 ECB so I got them for FREE!!! I wonder if this isn't just a sales gimmic for the publicity- either way you can't beat free!

      • It's not an ECB but actually a coupon that some folks are getting when their card is scanned. I normally only get coupons for CVS brand items but many are getting this one either after they finish and pay or if their store has a scanner they can get it first.

    • TarheelMom

      Hi, I am a newb here, but I just ran out to take advantage of the wipes deal!! I was so excited and I think I am going to get hooked to the coupon game, but I didn't understand how to get the $2 off coupon. Do I scan my card at the price scanner to see if it will print out a coupon? I might go back, since I got a coupon on my receipt for $5 off wyb $15.


      • CLR

        Yes, just scan it at the Red machine until it quits printing out coupons for you. you may or may not get it.

    • JenniferJones09

      I also went this morning in aiken sc and they were still ringing up $2.50!! I have to also add for anyone that thinks this is wrong, that at my store they actually had these packs signed for the sale price.

      • holly

        My store had them tagged with the sale price as well! Bought 4 packs at 10 this AM.
        We finally got a coupon scanner at our store- but it was out of paper :(

      • Barb

        Um…obviously in the beginning lots of posters were sure it was a mistake. I'm taking issue with the people who thought it was a mistake and still justified it.

      • hello neighbor! i did see the sign also that they were 2/$5.00 in aiken this afternoon

    • Jennifer

      I just went to CVS in Mt. Pleasant, SC and they rang up $2.50! Awesome!

    • Katie

      I went at about 9 and the offer was still good. I bought 4 and am so exited about the deal! I might have to go back this afternoon and try it again! =)

    • savysaver

      Just got back…still working!!! Took an early lunch, way early. I wiped the shelf clean of fragrance free ones. What a deal. I got 1 colgate max toothpaste, 3 colgate toothbrushes and 6 bags of wipe refills for $19.76 and saved $45.24. I'll have to admit I don't go the CVS for deals that often but I couldn't pass this up with a 4 month old at home.

      • oreogirl

        WOW, bragging about wiping the shelf clean!! That's a new one..Thanks for svaing others some wipes- I went out today and all my stores were WIPED clean too. That's a shame…

        • savysaver

          I'm sure I'm not the only one who bought more than a couple of packages. Not to fret…they had boxes of them sitting on the floor in front of the shelf, if you looked, and all the other varieties available in bulk as well. Sorry your store was wiped out already on such a good deal. Did you ask about more in the back. I encounter this issue with most other stores I shop and there is always more in the back.

        • Dianne

          You can ask for a rain check.

          • guest

            You're probably not going to be able to get a raincheck – this is not an advertised deal and therefore they are not required to give you a raincheck. It's a mistake, not a sale.

    • lucy2778

      If they haven't fixed the price by now, then it's probably NOT a mistake. And to be honest, I do not feel bad for stores when we overdo it on coupons. There are plenty of people who do not use coupons at all, and the stores make much more money on them then they lose on us. My single friend spends about twice more money a month on groceries/personal items than I do for a family of 4, we buy pretty much the same stuff, and she doesn't even give a thought to coupons/on sale items… Plus, if the stores are having sales and accept coupons, then they WANT us to use these deals. If we were “stealing” from them, they wouldn't have all of these awesome deals available.

      • Suemh

        I agree that there are lots of people who do not use coupons and pay full price for these items every day. I was in Rite Aid the other day and a lady in front of me sprnt $113 on items that could have been purchased elsewhere for probably half the price. They more than make up for the loyalty programs. Besides, they make the most of their profits on prescription drugs.

      • Barb

        I know there are plenty of people who do not coupon and pay full price. Some should be couponing to get their family finances in better shape…but others are consciously weighing the opportunity cost. They may make more money in one hour than they can save by doing several hours of couponing/bargain hunting. They may wish to spend more time with their families, etc and gladly give up the opportunity to save so they don't have to try so hard.

        Other people I know just don't care to have a stockpile of goods in their homes. They live very close to retail and prefer just-in-time stocking.

        A site such as this one does a WONDERFUL job of taking the legwork and brain work out of searching for deals. However, to take advantage of many deals, a person will have to be ready to get in the car at a moment's notice or go back to a store several times to get the product if they don't find it. Some people just make more money doing other things and have the luxury of not using coupons. I do it because I have several hours each day in which I can look for deals.

        Food is one of our major expenditures, so it makes sense for me to coupon on some items. Electricity is another, and I really should be spending more time finding ways to bring that bill down.

        I am in no way, shape, form, or fashion arguing the ethics of a rewards program. Those are established by marketers and in the long haul, they win. Not us. Even so, I don't begrudge any company its profits if the company is ethical. So far I have no reason to believe CVS and its ilk are unethical. However, if I felt that a deal was a mistake, I would let it go. I think what goes around, comes around. Maybe not today or tomorrow, but I am almost 40 and I've seen it too many times not to heed its existence.

        The only other thing that gets to me is that increasingly it is hard just to obtain items. Most times when I go to any store, whether large grocery, drugstore, or Aldi, there is something I specifically needed that isn't in stock. I think stores can only do so much toward anticipating who is getting 20 packs of something for a deal. I find I spend more of my time shopping just to get what I actually really need right now. I can only imagine the frustration of some people who get off from work and only have a limited amount of time to shop.

        • lucy2778

          Wow, I feel for you, I would have been frustrated if every time I went to the store, something I needed was not in stock. I guess I'm lucky, the area where I live (in Orlando, FL) doesn't have a lot of couponers. Every time I go to the store, it's like I'm the first one there :) Very, extremely rarely do they run out of the sale items.

      • brianne

        In the grand scheme of things… I wonder what percentage of the population coupons to the extreme that we do ???? I wonder if it really impacts them that much… wouldn't they stop making coupons or change the policies???? What do you all think?

        • brianne

          another thing… this couponing is pretty much like having a second job when you add up all the time it takes to organize and drive around.

          • WynetteC

            Very true. And this past week I let my shopping habits slide, so that I could gain the extra time in those other more valuable areas. ;)

            The laundry still stares at me, the dishes taunt me, and somehow I wonder how I am juggling all of this.

        • SavLucEvMommy

          Hi there,
          The stores make back the face value on the coupon, plus a handling fee, so they actually MAKE money on the coupons. Then, if you figure in the number of people who pay the highly-marked-up price, and the number of people who come in with their coupons and then buy other high-dollar stuff that is not on their list, the stores are NOT losing any money off of us couponers. None. No worries! If they were losing money, they would not be putting these items on sale. :) They make money off of us in the long run, and we save money, so it is a win-win situation!

        • Amber in SC

          I read an article recentlythat said something like 98%-99% of coupons put out don't get used. So, I guess we're just not getting our hands on enough of them. :)

        • lucy2778

          Ha ha I agree. If the stores/manufacturers were losing money on us, they would have stopped producing coupons a long time ago. Nevertheless, they still put coupons in Sunday papers and online, that can only mean they are benefiting from them.

    • 1MiniMom

      The shelves were pretty clean at the CVS on Maple Street in Carrollton. I ended up with a 184 ct bag but it still rang up at $2.50. It may have been the last one. I think the cashier was amazed that so many people needed wipes at the same time. LOL

    • lalapinski

      I'm going at lunch!

    • Shannon

      Just got back from CVS in Nashville area…Deal still good here. I was so excited, I just up and left work. Got my $2 off CVS coupon as well. Still out of breath from the running around and excitement from such a deal!!!!

    • bkhargett

      Went this morning to my CVS and they were ringing up at $2.50 still. I also got a $5/$15 when I scanned my card. What a great deal!

    • shinelikestars

      My CVS was wiped out…no pun intended ;)

      • WynetteC

        I happened to be out of town when this got posted, so I went to the CVS there and the red blinkie machine was fried. I was dissappointed and the ever so sweet cashier thought of a plan:
        She thought I could purchase a caramel along with my CVS extra care card and it would print out at the register whatever I should've received at the red blinkie machine. Didn't work, just got my receipt and my little one gladly got the caramel. I can see where this works to your disadvantage when those machines are down.
        I am still impressed with the cooperation from that particular store. The store clerk was impressed with this site. Perhaps she will become a fan soon. ;)

    • Abbie

      Just got back this morning and was able to get 11 packs. YAY!! I didn't have any coupons, but I did have 22 dollars in ECB's. I saved 8 ECB's for future rollover tranactions, but did use 14. I also used my new $25 giftcard for a new prescription that I got last week. My final bill was 15 off of my giftcard for 11 packs of wipes. I LOVE CVS!!!!!!!!!!

      • morgan

        11 packs?!

        • Cherise

          Kids don't quit pooping or making messes!!! ;)

          • megan

            I'm with you Morgan. And Cherise, I get that, I really do. But as you can see from many of the other posts here, people are cleaning off the shelves. A little moderation goes a long way. Sometimes the best part of finding a deal is leaving plenty for others to get as well.

      • Wow 11 packs. Doesn't leave a whole lot of room for anybody to get some…… I will have two kids in diapers this summer and still only got 2 packs. Makes you wonder about some people. It would be nice if this world shared a little more. 11 packs would probably last almost two years!!

        • Abbie

          I have 3 kids still using wipes and a baby coming in 4 weeks. We go through a pack of these refills in a weeks. And with these hidden deals my CVS is always ontop of it and they will start pulling off of the shelves. They probably already have. I bought enough packs to use my gift card completely. There were still plenty on the shelves, thank you very much.

        • Dianne

          Get a rain check.

    • gkfcbf93

      I went this morning and was thrilled to get the wipes since I had the coupon for $2 off, now I have part of a baby gift when I need it, what a deal!! Gotta love CVS!!

    • Ashlie

      Nothing makes a mom of a newborn more happy than finding a deal like this on a great kind of wipes… even the sensitive skin kind!!! Wahoo for going out early in the morning with the baby in towe while my four year old is at speech class to score such a great deal!!!

    • kpojero

      If you scanned your card in store and got the $4 off box huggies coupon save it till this next sunday. I saw on another site that huggies boxed diapers are going to be 19.99 get $4 ecb back.

    • haileyR

      I picked up two but wanted to let the Irmo, SC shoppers know that the CVS in Ballentine is completely out. CVS on Lake Murray Blvd. had 6 left. Happy Shopping!

    • New Momma

      Thank you, thank you, thank you!! I am stocked up now and I got SUCH a great deal! We are on a tight budget and this helped a TON!

    • robinwiser

      I sure hope there are some left this afternoon, I won't be able to go until after 5pm. I just ran out of wipes and Huggies is our favorite brand.

    • leigh

      i was out of wipes and these are my FAVORITE! Thanks so much for letting us know about the awesome deal, Jenny. Got mine this morning around 8:45 and the store had more in stock. No problem using coupons or extra bucks, as usual. CVS rocks!

    • ladybugsmom

      Just got back from CVS and it worked for me, but the coupon scanner did not print out any huggies coupons…still a great deal though. Got three packs for what one pack usually cost…THANKS JENNY!!!

    • Kristine

      YAY! I went to a CVS in Warner Robins, GA at 11:30. I got the $5 off $15 coupon and there were plenty of wipes! They are not marked, but they are definitely ringing up $2.50. I had a wipes coupon from a Huggies Mailer. I bought 4 packs, some candy, and a card all for $11!!!! They did not give me the coupon that printed out after the receipt.

    • amy

      I went this morning in Mc CAlla, Al bought 6 packages (all kinds are ringing 2.50, huggies brand that is) and I got a 5 off $15 tired to get $2 off coupond but decided to be happy with 5 off 15! 6 packs for $10.80 Yee hoo!

    • jade

      Cashier @ CVS in Albany, GA said this is a legit deal. I got 3 packs and the $5 off $15 coupon from the kiosk. My total was $11 and some change ~ 3 packs of wipes, 6 cadbury eggs, a greeting card and deoderant. Can't beat that! Thanks for all you do! :)

    • carolyn090

      there are alot of krazzy coupon ladys living in my area . we have only one car now and my husband isnt taking a lunch break today .this is totally driving me crazy ,bc i am sure they will be gone by the time i get there .any chance that i could get a rain check ?

      • mary

        I read on another site that corporate emailed all the stores and told them to take the product off the shelf that the price is wrong…

      • Megan A.

        I got a rain check today, but I'm not sure if the cashier was supposed to give me one. He didn't really seem to know what he was doing.

    • Shelley

      All out in Lexington, SC. Boooo for my waste of a drive over there. Hope this helps someone else from wasting their drive time.

      • Shelley

      Went this morning at 11:00 and got them! woo hoo! I bought 6 packs and had a 5 ecb came to 10.75. Two in diapers this is a huge help. thanks so much

    • amy

      I was just wondering how someone could buy up as many as 9 to 11 packs of wipes?? I just got back from our store and bought 2 packs and they had left about 5. The cashier was surprised by the sale and she needed some. I told her there were more back there. So, my point is why do you need to buy so many and leave nothing for the rest of us who use them? I believe in KARMA and if you think about the other people coming in behind you, maybe the next “hidden” deal that comes along …. you just might get your share!! Thanks Jenny for posting this!! I have 4 small children and I was actually out of my wipes!

      • abby

        Well, I have 4 small children as well and I did manage to get 11 packs. We go through a pack of these per week. I'm sorry you weren't able to get any, but that's no reason you have to pull out the Karma bull. It's all in how fast you play the game. I got enough packs to use my $25 gift card and ECB's. There were still at least 15 packs left on the shelf when I left. Tell you CVS to stock more.

        • amy

          Abby, I was able to get the wipes… TWO packs of them and I left the rest on the shelf for others!! And, “how fast you play the game”??? I did not know this was a game. I was just stating that if we all just took our share of this or any other deal… then maybe ALOT more people would get to enjoy having almost free wipes, too!! And, say what you must about Karma, but I try to have consideration and caring towards others! And, to not be full of greed!! … If this IS a game.. then shouldnt it be a FAIR one??

          • Sarah

            I don't believe in karma but since you brought it up…what kind of karma do you expect to get for taking advantage of of a “hidden deal” when it's been reported that it's probably an error in CVS's system? Seems like if you're that worried about karma you wouldn't have bought any. I got 3 packs…the last 3 on the shelf…and plan to hit up another one on the way home from work.

            • amy

              Well Sarah, since you brought it up… I FIRST asked the nice lady that worked their and she told me it was an unadvertised sale!! So, in response to your comment.. had she told me different, things would have been different!! Thanks

          • jessica1970

            Sadly, whoever taught you life was fair and that everything right done to the number of baby wipes in your house should be equal across the nation lied to you (or could be a communist). Come on! I wasn't going to reply to these comments, but I just couldn't help myself this time. I get so tired of hearing the winers. The last time HT had super doubles, I didnt' get my free yogurt or lysol wipes that I really wanted, but so what. Better luck next time.

          • Angie

            If you believe in karma then maybe you should not judge others based on how many baby wipes they purchase. It is not nice to make someone feel bad for taking advantage of a great deal.

      • Heather

        I went to all 4 CVS stores in my town and NONE of them had any of the wipes left. I was really disappointed. I do wish ppl would consider that there are others that would like to take advantage of the good deals too. So, if you are in Cleveland, TN, don't bother going to get this deal today.

        • lisa

          ask for rainchecks.. a friend of mine did.. and they gladly gave it to her! Good luck!

        • Amanda

          The CVS in Chattanooga was giving rainchecks (Hwy 58) and said they should restock on Thursday.

    • lucy2778

      Couldn't help but stop 10 mins before class to write this comment. Just ran to CVS. No wipes coupons printed out from the machine. The wipes were marked $7.99 but rang $2.50 at the register! I spent $10.93 on make-up and toothpaste last week and got $12 extra bucks. Grabbed 5 wipes, used my extra bucks plus paid $1.36 OOP. What an awesome deal! Got 2 babies myself, plus lots of friends are having babies, will be a great gift basket stocker. Thanks Jenny for this deal!!!

    • susq412

      I went out at 11am EST. I went to 3 different stores in the Summerville area, and they were all out. :( I could have went to a few more, but I had enough of toting a 3yr old and an 8 month old around for the day! lol

      • marilyn

        I went to two different cvs and did not have coupons at either for huggies but still got 2for5.Thanks for the information.Also finally found a food lion that had the shower cleaner from scrubbing bubbles.

    • Teresa

      It worked here in Albany, GA too!!! The coupon machine printed me a $5/$15, so I got 6 bags for $10. Just in time too.

    • adrawdy

      WooHoo…. I just hit the CVS by my office. Picked up the last two on the shelf… had 2.00 ECB and 2.00 off two packages of wipes. Got em for just over a dollar! Thanks for the post!!!

    • Natalie

      Just left CVS and they were pulling them off shelf….clerk said mistake in system and ringing up wrong. They allowed me 2 packs since I was there.

    • Valerie

      Just got back from CVS'ing, in Houston, TX on my lunch break. The wipes did ring up @ $2.50ea, I picked up three packs. I did not get a printed coupon from the scanner, however I had -.75/3 mfg coupons. I guess $1.75 each OOP is still a pretty awesome deal!!

    • dillard_christina

      Still working in Conyers, Ga! Got four packs during lunch. The stock was very low, though.


      I just got back from Fort Mill, SC CVS and got 2 packs. I didn't get any coupons, but still a great deal. Thanks Jenny!

    • ajkraft

      My coupon machine printed out a $5 off $15 purchase, so I bought 6 refill packs. I also had $4 in ECB, so I spent $1/refill pack OOP. Seriously, I LOVE this site! Thanks so much!

    • stommy21

      Thanks for the tip! FYI – also found 3-pack Orville Redenbacher Smart Pop on clearance for $0.83 box. Had a manufacture coupon printed from Target 's website for $1.00 off 2 boxes. It was a great day at CVS!

    • lalapinski

      I had to go to 2 different stores, but it was so worth it! I got 7 packs for 8.50 after my coupons and ECBs. I did get the $2 coupon and it also printed out a $5 off $15 coupon when I scanned my card, so I was able to use both of those! This was a jackpot deal!!!!!!
      FYI: the CVS on 42 @ Eagle's Landing and the CVS at Jonesboro Rd in McDonough are both sold out.

    • Karla Italiano

      The shelves were still fully-stocked in Smyrna, GA, as of 11:00AM, minus the 8 packs I picked up for myself. The 184 and 216 packs are all $2.50!

    • Jenni

      Got 6 refill packs for 10.60 after one store coupon for $5/$15! Best deal I've ever gotten on wipes!

    • new2qs

      I completely agree with amy!! I wasn't able to get ANY wipes and I have 4 small kids, 2 that are in diapers and I really could have used the deal. But dragging around a 2 yo and a 4 mo to several different stores only to see empty shelves is not my idea of a good time. Very frustrating!!! But thanks Jenny—-wish I could have gone out last night like you did!!!

    • Andrea

      i got six packs of the big wipes. Thanks so much Jenny for all that you do. That is an awesome deal and with two kids in diapers we fly through the wipes.

    • Lisa

      It was still working at 11:30 in Tallahassee, FL. The shelves were a bit sparse but I got my pack and since I had a 50-cent coupon and two $1 ECBs, I only had to pay 12 cents tax for it. Love it, thanks!

    • mom2finpey

      I just picke up 6 packs and can't thank you enough! Our store still had a ton left! I used 4 coupons that were 50 cents off and a $2 CVS coupon. I'll be able to mark wipes off my Sams club list for the upcoming month! Thanks!

      • Barb

        I am overwhelmingly disgusted.

        • Barb

          Not at this poster, but at all the people who ran right over to CVS after it came out that wipes deal was a mistake.

          That is dishonesty. Call it what you will to justify your life, but it's not honest.

          • mom2finpey

            Barb, I am confused as to why you are disgusted about shoppers getting a great deal? All of us who made the purchase paid the advertised price. We didn't steal them.

            • Barb

              Because a number of the posts in this thread indicate that it was a mistake on behalf of CVS and that the deal was being pulled for that reason.

              When we go to stores and something rings up wrong (too high), we MAKE the cashier fix it.

              In this case, many people KNEW it was the wrong price and went ahead with it, consciously attempting to “stick it to the man.”

              I don't call that a deal. I call it preying. I wouldn't condone it being done to a consumer, and in the long run, it hurts consumers to take advantage of “errant” deals.

              I don't have anything else to say about the matter. Everyone has their own comfort level of what they will do in life, and I can't force mine on someone else.

            • mom2finpey

              I can appreciate what you are saying. I can only speak for myself when I say I was not trying to 'stick it' to anyone. In my eyes it was indeed a deal. And I am totally comfortable in the deal that I got but I understand and respect what you are saying.

            • Barb

              I understand. I'm not saying everyone is terrible, just slow down and think of the effects of your actions.

              If I walked in off the street and had never heard of coupon blogs, etc. I would probably not think to question the deal. With the aforementioned knowledge, it turns into a different situation~meaning you have the power of discernment as to whether getting a deal on wipes is worth an ethical compromise.

              Have a nice evening.

            • Marina115

              Nobody knows for sure that this was a mistake. It's been on sale since sunday and they've had plenty of time to change the price. Personally, I grabbed 6 packs and left plenty on the shelves for others and I hope that people will take advantage of such a great deal.

            • ShannonStrader

              I'm confused. When was this determined to be a mistake? I got some at 10pm last night and I will be stopping after work to get a couple more. Baby shower gifts. There are no less than 15 CVS's near me, so I can imagine there are plenty for everyone.

            • Jessica

              It is definitely a mistake. I went to get some and the chick wouldn't even let me check out with them. She went to talk to some rude a-hole who said it was a mistake and that they aren't honoring it and if I had a problem with it then I could talk to the manager tomorrow. Which I just MIGHT do since they were both a-holes!

            • kellylherring

              I work for CVS and this was a mistake. We got a call to pull them because of the mistake.

          • soymilk30

            I think you have problem with people saving money and I think you are on the wrong website if you think will feel any compassion for companies that like to rip consumers off.

            You think corporation that set up sweat shops in other countries to make these things care about us at all? Go work for corporate…

            • Barb

              Well then stop buying product from companies that have sweat shops.

              Two wrongs do not make a right.

            • Tabitha

              I hope you aren't insinuating that Kimberly-Clark has sweatshops. My husband is an auditor for K-C and has been to several locations across the world- none in which have sweatshops. K-C is a family-friendly company with strong morals.

          • DC

            Not everyone reads every comment here, especially before trying to go out and get a good deal. Not only that, but CVS frequently has 90% or other % off products that aren't labeled. If I can get a $15 item for $1.50 when they're marked down, I wouldn't automatically think a $7.99 item priced at $2.50 is a mistake. I would also trust Jenny to post a message with this deal that it is “officially a mistake”, before I would discount it as one or believe another poster.

    • sarahNC

      Thanks Jenny! I was able to get 2 refill packs for free, using the $5/$15 coupon.

      It worked, bec. beforehand I went up to a nice CVS employee and asked them about the coupon policy. She and the other employee ladies were shocked and excited to hear about the refills being 2/$5. They had no clue, and grabbed a couple for themselves. So they worked the computer to do the coupon for me, and to be nice in return I gave them my 50cent wipes q. Exciting!

    • KristinWilson

      Just got back from the Cool Springs CVS in Franklin, TN..wiped out too! But I did get a $5 off $15 purchase coupon..maybe I can find some after my husband gets home! Keeping my fingers crossed!

    • Thank you very much for this post. I have had four children in 4.5 years. Two of them are still in diapers and none of them stay dry at night. Wipes are HUGE around our house. Thanks!

    • Donna

      I went at lunch time and there were none left at my 24 hr store or even the regular store. Thought I could see if I could get a rain check for it but manager said they could only write one for what was advertised. Although they had the sales tag where the refill bags were. She also said it wasn't suppose to ring up that price and that it was the computers mistake. But I did get me a $2 off at the scanner and got me a free tub.

    • Molly

      Awesome Deal! I scanned my card and got the wipes coupon and a $3 off $15 coupon (plus 2 others).

      I used my coupons plus $5 ECB I had and bought 6 packs of wipes plus the ear rinse on sale for $12.99 (before tax)! And got $7.99 ECB back! Now if only our tax wasn't 10%!!!!

    • Tabitha

      Well I went to CVS in Clarkesville,Georgia at 1:30p.m. and the deal was still on. I got 6 packs for $10.20. I used my coupon that I got out of the machine where you scan your CVS card it was $5 off $15 and also used a 50 cent off home mailer coupon and so I ended up paying only 1.70 with taxes. This was a Blessing for us we ended up saving $37.74 because these usually ring up for $7.99. Thanks for posting this the hidden deal it truly has been a Blessing and feels like I have won the Lottery. We have two kids so we go through alot of wipes.
      Thanks again.

    • Angie

      I just went and it worked for me too. The best part was at the front of the store there is the “scan your card and get coupons” machine and it printed out a $5 off purchase of $15 or more coupon, so I got 6 refill packs for just $10.83! Thanks for the great update. I love the feeling of grabbing a good deal!

    • Lisa

      Ok. I need to vent a little. I just went to my local CVS for the wipes deal and they were all gone. No surprise there. But when I went to the cash register to get my 64 ct box, the cashier told me that “some lady came in early this morning and bought 2 CARTS full of the big refill packs and cleaned us out”. Seriously, people, 2 carts? How bout a little moderation here? I went to a nearby college town and got 2 refill pks. And yes, there was a lot on the shelf when I left

      • kmmoore

        Same thing for Ringgold, GA!! I went to all 3 of our local CVS stores with hopes of buying some wipes to send to Haiti. All 3 stores told me “this lady came in and bought a whole cart full.” Maybe she has intentions of donating some of them…I hope so!

      • Lisa

        The cashier said that she said it was “to donate to her church or something”. So maybe the lady from my area had good intentions.

    • Christy

      In case some of you Easley, SC folks are wondering, the Easley CVS off of Hwy 123 was out of the larger size wipes and so was the Powdersville store. They did still have some of the tubs of wipes (11:00am). I was able to scan my card and get a $2.00 off coupons for wipes and use it on one of the tubs on sale for $2.50 – It was still a great deal to only pay .50 cents for a tub of wipes. Wish I had got there in time for the refill pack though! :)

      • Jayne

        Clemson still had a lot when I was there at 2:00.

    • April

      Just got back… My CVS- Suncoast of FL was fully stocked but the coupon printer didn't have the Huggies Q. Still feel like I got a great deal though!!!

    • Megan

      Went to Simpsonville (Fairview/Harrison Bridge), Fountain Inn (Main St) and they were both out. I then went to Simpsonville (Main Street) and I got 8 packs. They had a few left there. I did not try the West Georgia Road ones since I got what I needed.

      ***NOTE*** The Simpsonville cashier said that the Pampers one were like this too but I didn't have time to check her storyand I prefer Huggies wipes over Pampers wipes anyway.

      • Dawn in FL

        I'd love to hear if anyone checks the Pampers price. I picked up 5 pks of Huggies today, but I prefer Pampers wipes. Thanks!

        • Christen

          at mine in irmo, SC they were offering the Pampers refills for 2.50 too!! They are acutally a bigger pack than the huggies with 236 count!! I only got the pampers bc the huggies were sold out, but still happy about the price!!

    • Dawn B

      Just picked up mine, the shelves were fully stocked here at 3:30pm.

    • thinkgreen08

      My CVS was all out :( Maybe I will try another CVS tomorrow.

    • jamiebogo

      get a life. stop worrying so much about what other people do. if you don't like it then don't read it. i swear some people just look for reason to be angry at others. remember there is only one true judge.

      • kpojero

        I was just rhinking the same thing!!!!

        • ahjgarrity

          Me too!

    • Michelle

      Thank you so much! This is an awesome deal! The coupon I got was for $5 off any $15 purchase and I had a Huggies wipe coupon, so I got 6 packs of wipes for $9.50! Nobody else must know about this deal yet because my store had 2 shelves full of them and my cashier couldn't believe the price!

    • thank you jenny!!! i went to a cvs i wouldn't usually go to and bought 2 for $4 after coupons! your website has really helped me feel like i financially contribute to my family!!

    • lucy2778

      Wow, I just entered the reward codes from the wipes online (each bag is 8 points) and was able to get a toy for my baby for free! (I had some points before but never enought) Made my day!

    • Pat

      It is only Tuesday. Most stores will get another truck in before the end of the week. Just ask the clerk when will they get another truck and hope they have more wipes on it.
      No need to stress. I am a working mom. I went during my lunch break…no wipes. Frustrating yes, but not the end of the world.

    • jm19771977sc

      Racked up at CVS this afternoon, scanned my card and got a $5 off $15 purchase,
      $4.00 off huggies box diapers, $2.00 off huggies wipes and used (1) .50 off Q on the wipes. That's the best I've done at CVS in a while!

    • kelly1369

      Woohoo! I managed to get 3 packs! The best part – I scanned my card and got a $2.00 off any huggies wipes… plus I had a .50 coupon.. so I got one of them for free! :) Thanks for telling us about this!

    • 3monkeysmom

      I'm just wondering why everyone is making such a big fuss over baby wipes. I don't think it's “greedy” to stock up on these when they are such a good price. My youngest baby is 4 so I don't need wipes anymore, but if I did need them, I wouldn't feel guilty stocking up on them. I've missed tons of great deals before because I couldn't make it to the store in time. I'm sure we all have. It's disappointing but somebody got there first!!! If you just want two, just buy two. If you want 11, buy 11. It's silly to me that some people think they have a “right” to this deal just because they know about it.

      • jtsb

        THANK YOU! I'm sure these are the same people who get mad at others who beat them to Black Friday deals. It's such a waste of time to get angry at others for such silliness. Get a grip people!

        • 3monkeysmom

          Exactly! Times are tough and this deal was a HUGE blessing for some people. I'm happy for anybody who was able to stock up on these: kids are expensive!!! And if you didn't get any: better luck next time!!

    • jessica

      i went this morning got 3 pack of 216 wipes at 1.18 oop. used 5ecb and 2 huggies cvs printable.
      also decided to get 6 of the tubs had a 5/15 from my husbands card and 1.00 off pampers a little more oop it was 9.00 and change still made the wiped less than 1 cent a piece thanks to you im stocked for a while i hope

    • i was only able to get 2 packs in aiken this morning, i got a $2.00 off Q and used two 50 cent off Qs. There were tons more, I just didn't have that much money on me this morning lol. I might go back tomorrow though and try to grab a few more.

    • Colleen

      just ran out to cvs, i was able to print a $2 coupon just in case they had any left… they didn't have the large packs so i just picked up a small container to keep in the car. but i was able to use the coupon (even though it was for diapers!) so i got a box of wipes for .69 OOP. and even though i wasn't able to get the big pack hidden deal, i have no ill feelings for the lucky ducks who were able to clear the shelves as soon as they heard. High 5 to you and your stockpile of wipes. :)

    • Elizabeth

      If it's the same all over, then it's not a mistake. Individual stores set the prices in their system. At most, it's by area. Furthermore, it seems to be a very popular deal. If they haven't done something about the “mistake” by now, they're not going to which leads me to conclude that there is no mistake after all. :)

      As for the 11 packages of wipes: Good for you! If you need them, get them. Did you beat an old lady down to get to them? How about snatching them out of some other shopper's hand? I didn't think so. Calm down people. They have stockers for a reason. If your store doesn't have them out on the shelves, ask them to get some from the back or get a rain check, but don't give somebody flack because she got to the deal first. From the sounds of it, she left packs on the shelves, so what's the big deal? Didn't get any? Be faster next time. It's that simple. You don't have a right to deals. This isn't a kid soccer league where everybody gets a trophy for showing up. (Total b.s. in my opinion.) You win some.You loose some. I hope your kids aren't learning the same attitude.

      Now everybody can quit acting like babies about how “unfair” life is. Yay!

      • Abbie

        THANK YOU! My thoughts exactly! I'm 37 weeks pregnant….do you think I WANTED to get up early and be the first person at CVS. No, I did it because it's a huge need and a great deal to save my family money. Thank you for your comments.

        • jessica1970

          Amen. I one time wiped out an entire shelf of formula because it was so cheap and that was the last time I bought it before my daughter switched over to milk. My husband had lost his job, so I simply could not let the deal go buy.

      • thorders

        Bravo! If 11 packages had been left when I got to CVS, I would have bought all of them without hesitation.

      • Lisa

        I believe you meant to say “You lose some.” I guess you lost the spelling bee.

      • Heather

        The CVS in Kingsland, GA today told me there was no deal on these wipes and they would write a rain check. I don't know if they were telling the truth because the shelf was empty. Anyone know?

    • melody

      Thanks for this tip!! With the economy the way it is, and people struggling to pay for basic essentials like food and electricity, deals such as these are so helpful. We did ask the cashier if it was a mistake or an unadvertised special, and she said as far as she knew it was just an unadvertised deal. As far as whether it's right or wrong to take advantage of a retailer's pricing mistake, the only thing I would say is that I think judgmental, condescending, self-righteousness is much worse. Just my opinion.

    • Amber

      Don't bother checking in Soddy Daisy.. They are out too! I doubt if any CVS has many more wipes on the shelf!

    • Tara

      I was lucky enough to snatch a few packs at a neaby town when I took my son to the Dr there. I tried 3 of my local CVS stores (TN) when I got home, and they were all cleaned out. When I asked at 2 of the stores, they said that they took all the wipes off the shelf due to the pricing error. It sounds like the deal is still going on at other locations, you guys are lucky! :) Happy shopping!!

      • sandnsable

        I got mine!! (Athens, GA) Now that i see all these comments, im going back for more. i was about to buy a pack and I remembered to swipe my card in the price scanner and got the $2 off coupon. Super excited…

        • rjid

          I live in Las Vegas (just moved from GA) and I was happy to find out that I can still use this website for some stores like CVS, Kroger/Smith's, and Walgreens. It's kind of nice to get these deals and have no problems with the shelves being wiped out. I remember going to stores in GA and many of times coming home with no luck because of the “southern savers” :) Anyway, this is just a testament of how awesome this website is…..thank you soooo much Jenny for helping all of us out so very much …. even on the west coast!!! BTW, I wiped out 2 stores of their wipes that were within 5 miles of my house….soooo nice!

    • Mary

      At work , we have 2 large plastic bins for items donated by employees and customers. One is for the Wildwood Soup Kitchen (food items), and one is for Interfaith Ministries (shelter for victims of domestic abuse). Items such as toiletries and diapers, wipes etc. At lunch today, I went and purchased some wipes (2 pkgs – all I could afford) for Interfaith. I came back and told other people about the deal and they went out and bought some for Interfaith. We probably cleared out the shelves here in The Villages, Florida. My point is, don't judge, you may not know the whole story. By the way, I LOVE this website!!

    • lisaajenkins

      Sent my husband to get mine this afternoon…there wasn't any at the CVS he went to, but he saw 2 other ladies looking for them too! I went to a different one on the way home from work and got the last (yes the last) 2 packages!! We were about out! and–on my husband's receipt when he got a smaller package–a $2 off wipes (which he didn't bring me) a $5 off $25 purchase and $4 off box of Huggies!! can't wait to use these!!

    • Brandi

      Thanks for posting this deal! We picked up 4 packs (should last a couple of weeks with 2 kids) and with $5 ECB it only cost $5 for all 4!

    • Jennifer

      Thanks for letting us know about this. It's awesome. I got 8 packs finally found them at the 4th cvs in my town. As far as people being greedy or whatever some people may think, everyone has the same opportunity to look at this great website & gets the deals the same as all of us. Thanks Jenny!

    • lisa

      THANK YOU!!! for all you do!! this wipes deal is soooo awesome!! I was able to take part of this deal today! Needless to say I was dancing across the parking lot! :)
      To everyone who did NOT get the wipes deal, take a deep breath and go back to cvs.. ask for a rain check! They very gladly gave these to a friend today! Good luck!!

    • Bethany

      I just got such good deals I keep thinking the police are going to knock on my door saying I robbed CVS!! THANK YOU!!!

    • Crystal

      I picked up 12 packs and then went home and entered all the reward codes and won two free jumbo packs of diapers on the instant win game :) Today was definitly a good day!

      • Tara

        What are the reward codes?? For CVS, or Huggies? Thanks in advance.

        • jessc5


      • Crystal

        It is a Huggies reward program “Enjoy the Ride”. I played the instant win game. If you are more patient you can also save points to receive diapers.


        • Sunny

          How did you win the instant game? Is it purely luck that the little kiddos hit the bulls eye or do I need to move a key or mouse?? im confused..please help!

        • Crystal

          It is pure luck! I played like 200points. There is nothing to do, but watch and hope you one in 4000. I won twice in a row :)

    • gingerinCA

      Judge not, that ye be not judged? <shrug>

    • SavLucEvMommy

      Wow! What a bunch of poisonous comments on here! :( I went at 7 pm and the store was out of huggies refills. However, my store very graciously substituted Pampers wipes for the Huggies wipes, so I got the Pampers refill pack for the same price- and I had coupons off of those. No extra coupon, but you know, 4 dollars for a couple of Pampers refills is just fine with me! As for all of the “you took all of them and left none for me” people… isn't the point of couponing to STOCK UP when things hit a rock-bottom price???? Yes. It is the STORE'S fault for not stocking a bunch of something that is going to be on sale- something that CVS is notorious for. Do some people take more than seems fair? Yes. But should they really stop and say, “Oh, I better save these for the woman with 15 kids, even though I managed to get myself up and ready and organized enough to be early”? You may have a lot of kids, you may be upset, but honestly, you win some deals and you lose some deals- and I bet most of you have printed more than one copy of a coveted coupon when so many people want them, or take more than one coupon booklet at the store…. I hate it when people are attacking each other on a blog designed to save you $$ because people are doing just that. Life's not fair, and we are all doing the best we can. You'll get the next deal! It is not like wipes will NEVER be on sale again. BTW, Jenny, can't wait to see you in Canton tomorrow! :)

      • Donella

        Golf claps, standing ovation and three snaps in a circle for that soapbox speech, SavLucEvMommy! Very well put and I couldn't agree with you more!

        • SavLucEvMommy

          Thank you! :):):)

        • Elizabeth

          What she said. :)

      • WynetteC

        I am impressed with the stores who substitute something else for a product they are out of. Your particular store must have a customer-friendly store manager. These people and businesses that are run by such practices always seem to have great customer return visit ratio. I would write a thank you to that particular store. Sometimes they need to be reminded just how special they are *too* ! :)

      • janellegallo

        Amen sister!!!!!! Couldn't have said it better myself!

    • just got the deal THANK YOU!

    • heather

      Has anyone checked the pampers refill packages?? By the way, one CVS today was out completely and I didn't know if they even had a “raincheck” policy, but I asked – and the very nice cashier and another one was helping me, and the male was in the process of writing it out – I had to show him the ticket on the shelf – and the manager got involved, and said he would not be giving me any rainchecks on UNadvertised deals. Oh well. I was able to get one pack at a different location. I have a 6 week old…

      • Shari

        I checked the pampers refill pack price and they were NOT scanning for the $2.50… I wish they were though!

    • Angela

      DANG! I wish I'd seen this sooner. I don't live near a CVS, but was near one today. Hopefully they'll have some Thursday!

    • Joanna8885

      Just went to the CVS in Lexington SC. None on the shelf but asked the store clerk if Ishe would check in the back and got 4 packs. Great deal. You can also get a coupon out of the dispenser in the store for 2.00 (this is hit or miss depending on what the dispenser is spitting out at the time) Thanks for the tip.

    • too2manytots

      Thank you so much I scored a few packs at my local CVS. I used 2 (75 cent coupons) I wished the machine had given me the $2 but it was out of coupons when I was there.

    • a1chaya

      I'm new to CVS shopping. How can I get the $2 CVS printed coupon?

      • mandy

        Each time u go to CVS, you need to scan your card at the front door scanner/price checker. It will print coupons. Sometimes u get good ones, sometimes u don't…

    • too2manytots

      Well I scored some of these at y local CVS in NE FL however I did not get the $2 coupon that a few poster received. Just want to thank everyone for all their post and saving me tons of MULA.

    • My store was fully stocked and had no problem with the price. I bought 2. I did not get the store $2Q. I had a $1/1 and a 50 cent/1 plus the scanner gave me a $5/15. I paid 90 cents for my whole transaction.

      As for the horrid comments posted earlier, if it is a mistake, they have had 3 days to realize it and fix it. If it hasn't been done, then oh well. AND for it to be this way across the US leads me to believe it is an unadvertised sale.

    • paulahtally

      Awesome! I scanned my card and got a $5 off when you spend $15. I got 6 packs for $15, less the $5 so got 6 packs for $10.

      We don't have any babies here but use them for everything as they are thicker than wet ones.

      I am in Tallahassee and this was at Cap Cir/Miccosukee store.

    • ircthtrk

      I'm sitting here laughing over the fact that something you wipe your butt with could cause such a “stink” on such a calm comment site. I've never seen ugliness on this site but this is just silly.

    • Tracy

      Got the best deal ever on wipes at my CVS. My Q was $5 off $15 and I didn't need anything else so I bought 6 packs of wipes for $15, got $5 off, had a $5 ECB, and .50 manufacturer Q. Got 6 refill packs for $5.30, including tax. My only wish was that I'd dug out more .50 coupons, could have gotten 2.50 more off. oh well… not really complaining. so grateful for my deal!!

    • Wow! Thanks Jenny! I'm in VA and my store was fully stocked this evening. I was thrilled. I had $13 of ECBs expiring so I bought 5 for $12.50 and found $.50 cough drops and then paid sales tax $.58! Not bad! I didn't get the $2 off CVS coupon but I did get the $4 off Huggies box.

    • janice

      All my stores are out. I live about 45 minutes from town so it was a bummer.Everyone caught on quick! Maybe they will get some more in this week.

    • Kelly

      Yeah I would like To know if Barb is serious. I have a 17 month old, work full time, and much of my paycheck goes to daycare. So yeah I snatched four of those suckers…big deal. And you say what goes around comes around?? Seriously? What am I going to be thrown into the lake of fire because I took advantage of a good deal on wipes for my baby? Wow Barb, sound like you are a bit jealous that you pay full price for a lot of stuff and others do not. Calm down and Go get you a sunday paper girl….you can do it too!!

      • gery220

        Kelly I am with you. My husband works in wholesale and I know they will never loose even if this was a mistake!! I just could not imagine that this blog would turn into this BIG deal over wipes..OMG really is she serious! Im just trying to make it in his bad economy.

    • traceym

      another hidden deal seems to be the 99cents CVS green eco friendlyshopping bags…after you purchase, you can bring it back in each time you visit CVS & receive an extra buck each time! =)

      • Mysterious_Mentalist

        You get $1 ECB after 4th visit (after 4th scan) and only one scan per day is counted. Where did you see after each scan?

    • lucy2778

      This post has gotten hilarious, people fighting over about how many wipes they are supposed to buy. It's like today I went to CVS, and they finally had all the Valentine's stuff at 90% off. There was a lady in the same isle, she started grabbing all the stuff before I could get any (and there was tons of candy left). I bet she would've grabbed the chocolate from my hands just to get it on sale. After she left I still managed to get my ummm… about 10 pounds of candy for 5 bucks lol and a couple of toys for the kids…. I think some people just get overexcited about sales and get extremely frustrated when they cannot get EVERY deal out there. Let it go people, be happy for others who got it :)

    • anniie

      umm i'm sorry. is this a shopping site or facebook? if you have a valuable tip please share, but if you're just going to complain please don't force other people who are just looking for a good deal to have to read your pointless comments. i'm sure Jenny did not intend this website to be used as a place where people can vent their own personal opinions. just a thought.

      • Sarah

        Yup, I'm a bit weary of reading through “soap boxes” to see if anyone has any REAL information on this deal!

        Hate to point it out, but… Pot calling the kettle black? Didn't you just do what you complained about others doing?

    • Mysterious_Mentalist

      Some on these boards are worried about CVS or Huggies being ripped off. CVS puts a lot of item on sale/Clearance frequently and has been doing it for many years. Many items I have seen are not just discontinued item but nice new items. Main reason is that thos eitems are not sellinbg-period. That is the key. They are still getting money off on something that would otherwise be rotting on their shelves.

      Having said that, some who are objecting to a “deal” are not thinking outside the box. CVS is still getting its money; manuf. is still selling its item which otherwise would not sell that quickly; it is just that they are not getting the “normal” price that they have set with exorbitant profit margin. Remember, they make these items in millions and the cost on each translates into only in pennies. That does not make it any ethical issue or defect in anyone's moral who are buying the stuff for their advatage. Just as companies take advantage of consumers, consumers can do the same. Unfortunately, that is the order of the day.

      Therefore, this “deal” is probably not a mistake. They want you to buy them. It is also possible that manuf. may be replacing this stock with something new variety that they will introduce to the market soon. So they are making room for it.

      Also, some appear to be objecting to coupon use or some are apprehensive about the use. Coupons are marketing 101. It is the competitionb that is driving the coupon war. They spend millions of dollars to get the coupon out to your door. Perhaps more money is lost in getting them out than they payoff in coupons to retailers. Only a small fraction of a percent of coupons are actually used. Just 1% of coupons used is considered a success. Retailers are getting their money;it is just that your “sugar-daddy” is paying a part for the product. ECBs have also a part deal with manufac. so CVs is getting a portion, if not 100% of ECB coupon value from manufauf. Manuf. in return claim those payouts to retailers as marketing cost in their profit/loss revenue and thus save a lot of tax money.

      Bottomline, getting a deal is a smart move, not just for the consumer, but for all three partners-consumers, retailers, and manuf.-All enjoy a win-win-win situation for mutual benefits.

        DID YOU scan at the price checker or ???

        • ET

          I scanned at the price-checker.

    • Mary

      Sounds like CVS might have just figured out their mistake! I went to one this morning and was surprised because there was acctually a sale sign on the slef saying 2/$5 so I grabbed the last two. They rang up $8.39 so I took the salesman back to the shelf to show the sign. A manager came around and said she had made those signs since they were ringing up at 2.50 each but they just found out that it was a mistake so she took the sign down but let me get the sale price. I feel bad knowing it was a mistake but she insisted on letting me buy them for that price. But I guess corporate realized their mistake and we won't be getting any more sheap wipes!

    • Mary Anne

      My price scanner didn't print a coupon:(, but I still got it for $2.50:)

    • selinaj

      Woo-Hoo! Thanks so much for posting this! I got mine! I was on my last tub of wipes and wondering who had the best deal for getting more. I got 4 packages for only $3.94 oop…. I had $5.50 in ECB's and 2 coupons! Wish I could've gotten that $2 coupon, but it didn't print for me. Wanted to buy more at such a good price, but also didn't want to be greedy. I hate it when I go to the store to get a deal and the shelf is empty. I left plenty! :)

    • Brittney

      Thank you for telling me about the scanner machine that prints coupons. I got the Huggies coupon (which I really don't need because my kids are beyond that stage.) but in addition to that coupon I also received a coupon for $1.00 off two packages of CVS brand candy. My children came with me to the store with their own money and I was able to teach them how to make their money stretch by using a good coupon and pooling their money.

    • Elizabeth K.

      I stopped at the one on Lake Murray Blvd. in Irmo, SC this morning. They had 2 packs but they wouldn't ring up 2.50, back at 7.99. It must have been an error. I am very disappointed though. As soon as I got off work yesterday, I stopped at that store and 3 others trying to get these wipes and they were sold out everywhere.

    • Jessica

      Just went to the 2 CVS' in Easley, SC. Both of them are not doing this deal any longer. Both managers said that the error was fixed in their computer and are not $2.50.

    • Ashley

      I got two of these on Tuesday! Didn't have my coupons with me that I got from homemailers :( but it was still an awesome deal! Wish that I would have bought the other 2 that were there as well because I went out with coupons to 3 stores and they are all wiped out! Anyone know if we would be able to get a raincheck?

    • Volley1985

      Has anyone been able to get a raincheck for these? I didn't know what their policy was and if it had to be an advertised deal since I didn't see it in the ad. If you got a raincheck how did you go about it? My store said they would have more in stock on Friday but I wasn't sure if the price would still be that low then. Thanks.

      • KSG

        another poster in this comment stream said the manager told her that he couldn't give a rain check on an unadvertised sale. you can try it, but i'm guessing they won't do it.

      • Yesterday, I would have said yes, but today the price is back to $7.99.

    • Kathy

      Several other “deal sites” are saying that this deal has ended….guess I missed out.

    • rnh

      I got 2 packages of wipes yesterday at the 2.50 price, but when I went back to the SAME store today, the price is 7.99. (They have plenty of the shelves there – I was very excited until I saw the price had changed!)
      The other CVS didn't have any, so I can't check their price.

    • mamashigh

      I really have to agree with some that are saying that people buy too many of the deals. I went to CVS today and there was no wipes or the general mills deal either. I think people just get a little greedy. The lady in front of me said she had been to CVS 3 time in 1 day. I mean that is a little over board. Jenny has been so good to help us out with all this and she tries to teach manners that go along with couponing. I know there is no limit but when I'm buying something I tell myself leave some for others because they need it too! I did get my wipes free today just the tub wipes but I was happy with that and also free puffs tissues!

    • ladymoon0121

      I went to one of my local CVS this morning and the refills are not on sale, only the tubs. I ended up getting 4 tubs of Huggies, 2 tubs of Pampers (which is also on sale), and a small chocolate milk for my son for a little under 10. The coupon printer did not print off the $2 coupon for me but it did print off a $5 off $15 which I used along with my two huggies coupons and my pampers coupons.

    • chele17

      Thank you for the tip!!

    • Brandi

      It is possible that this wasn't a “mistake” but instead an unadvertised 3-day deal (like some of the deals they put in the sale paper for Sun, Mon, Tues only).

      • guest

        It's pretty obvious that this was a mistake. The small tubs are on sale for $2.50 – absolutely no good reason why they would intentionally sell the large refill bags at the same price. Also, these are on sale NEXT WEEK for $5.99. That's a 'normal' sale price for these. This was a mistake, plain and simple, and they fixed it.

        • Brandi

          Not really sure why you feel the need to respond so rudely. It was just a thought I had. I'm by no means a CVS expert. It obviously was not “pretty obvious” to me.

          • kaseyelisabeth

            Thank-you Brandi! I do not understand why some people are so rude sometimes. Some people need to get a grip… if you see a good deal… of course you are going to get it! It may have been a mistake but at least it saved a few moms out there some money while it lasted!!

            • guest

              I was not trying to be rude, I was trying to explain from the point of view of someone who has been CVS-ing for almost 3 years and has seen the way these kinds of things work. Sorry if I came across as rude, it was not intended. And believe me I have absolutely no problem with anyone who got in on this deal – I'm a mother and I'm pregnant and I got my wipes just like a lot of other people. I was just trying to help clarify the nature of this 'deal' for those who may have less experience with these things.

    • Karen

      I went yesterday and again today at 2 different locations in Greenville/Simpsonville, SC. I also called the store at Five Forks and Woodruff Rd and they said they DO get a truck in tomorrow but that her manager had said to pull the wipes if they get them b/c it's a mistake and they're not to sell them. She said they didn't realize it was a mistake till they were all sold out yesterday and that corporate had told them it was a mistake. I also asked at the Tanner Rd/Butler Rd location if they could give me a raincheck, like some others had stated on here, but he said it was only in the system the sale but couldn't offer me that b/c it was a sale. Guessing he really doesn't understand the meaning of a raincheck…

      • guest

        Stores are only required to write rainchecks for ADVERTISED deals. This was not advertised, therefore they do not have to offer you a raincheck. If you walk into the store and they are sold out, and there is no sign, and it is not in the ad, then why would you expect them to believe you when you say they were on sale for $2.50? You could make up anything in the world and say 'oh it rang up that way yesterday' but they have no proof and no way to confirm it, and are not obligated to honor it since it was not advertised to the public.

        • Carol

          Why do you have to be so rude to people???

          • guest

            I don't really think it's rude to point out the way consumer laws work, I'm sorry if I came across that way. Karen seemed to think that the manager does not understand rainchecks, but I was clarifying for Karen that she was mistaken about how they work. Yes there is a law that protects consumers by requiring stores to offer either a suitable substitute or a raincheck when out of stock on an advertised item, but the intent of that law is to keep stores from luring people in with advertised sales and then not having them available. We are not entitled to a raincheck for this deal b/c it was not advertised, i.e. it was not designed to lure people into the store, it was just *most likely* a pricing mistake that people found and shared with each other. Nothing wrong with getting in on the deal while it lasted – after all, it was CVS's mistake, not ours – however we are not entitled to a raincheck for an unadvertised deal. I wasn't trying to be rude, I was trying to explain why a store would probably not give a raincheck on a deal that is not advertised or signed anywhere.

            • guest

              ETA: Also nothing wrong with people who WERE able to get a raincheck – that is very lucky and you must have very nice stores if they were willing to give a raincheck for an unadvertised deal that was *most likely* a mistake. But it is by no means required and should not be expected – it was a wonderful perk that some people were able to get one, but those people were very lucky that their store is just that nice, and honestly the store is probably very smart for keeping customers happy even when they are not legally obligated to do so.

            • Karen

              I appreciate your wealth of knowledge on the deals, sales and prices of items at CVS. I think it's AWESOME that you've been “CVS-ing for almost 3 yrs now”. I didn't think that CVS owed me any kind of raincheck, it's kinda one of those things, you can ask and well they can say no, like they did this time. I didn't realize there was law on giving a raincheck, but I do understand why now and thank you for clairfying it for me. I think it's great that some were able to get a raincheck. Customer satisfaction is a HUGE thing that most companies need to work on and some stores are lucky enough to have a manager recognize that it's good to keep the customer coming in even when the “sale” is their mistake. I knew that the price couldn't have been right b/c it didn't make sense to sell one item that contains a smaller amt for the same price as one that contains a larger amt. Unfortunately, even with all the technology that's out there, there can be a mistake made(someone keying in the wrong code at their corporate office) and this time some were able to take advantage of it. From now on I'll be sure to watch the postings closer to get the deals when they first come out. Thanks so much for your many comments on here b/c I've really enjoyed reading them.

            • guest

              I appreciate that you understood where I was coming from. Once again, I'm sorry if my added emphasis and example came off the wrong way in the beginning.

    • blueiies

      Went to my local CVS around 3:30 p.m. today (2-24) and they rang up regular price for the refill pack (7.99). I don't know if corp. found out about it and changed it or if just my bad luck.

    • 2kids1husband

      I went to the Wal-Greens in Clayton, Georgia to see if I could get a deal on the wipes. I scanned the refills at the price scanner and they were all $7.99. Oh well.

      • 2kids1husband

        I meant to say CVS instead of Wal-Greens. Sorry about that.

    • blueiies

      Went to my local CVS around 3:30 p.m. today (2-24) and the refill pack rang up for regular price (7.99). Either corp. found out about it and changed it, or just my bad luck.

    • scmommy

      I went today and they rang up 7.99, but I went yesterday and it was 2.50. I only bought one yesterday, do you think they changed it or did I do something wrong? As a furloughed SC teacher and mother of 2 still in diapers, this was something I was excited about. :-)

      • scmommy

        Ok, when I switched the comment order to newest I saw where everyone else is getting the same thing, still not as computer savvy as I would like to be

    • bonnie

      Will CVS do a raincheck for the wipes?

      • isabellaboo

        Mine said they would. A truck comes to restock my store on Friday & I was told if there are no wipe refills delievered then, I can get a raincheck.

    • lucy2778

      Yep. I sent my poor friend to CVS to finally convince her that “there really are deals out there.” (she uses no coupons)… and the price rang up for $7.99 :( The deal is gone

    • Beverly

      :-( I went this morning and unfortunately it is not ringing up 2/$5 any longer unless it was just this one CVS but it was regular price for 7.99. I went yesterday but the CVS was all out of the refills.

    • pstill

      I admit that I am new to to couponing. However, I printed out my “guide to CVS'ing” & took it with me along w/ the CVS circular & coupons. I get my Rx & I get a coupon for $3 off $14 purchase. So, I buy $15 worth of stuff & get my $3 discount. However, I never got any ECB's. I expected to be able to “shop” with my $15 or so worth of CVS money. It didn't work for me. I had planned on buying CVS brands too. Very discouraged & disappointed!!!

      • guest

        What items did you purchase? In order to get back ECBs for your purchases, you have to purchase items that are shown in the ad as giving back ECBs – and the registers are very particular that you must purchase the exact varieties advertised in order to get the reward. Also, did you use your CVS card? The ECB deals only work when you use your CVS card. I'm sorry your trip didn't go the way you wanted it to. I'm sure everyone here would love to help you figure out what went wrong so that you can have a better experience next time.

    • wolverinehokie

      Not exactly related to this anymore since the price has been changed, but can someone tell me the shelf life of these refill packs? I picked up one for my friend's baby shower, but she isn't even due for 3 months. Will they still be good then? Like they don't dry out or anything do they? I was thinking of grabbing more but wanted to make sure they don't go bad or something. And now apparently it's too late anyway.

      • Lynne

        they shoudl be fine. I have two cases that my parents get me and they last probably upwards of 6 months or more as long as they are not opened.

      • guest

        These will last pretty much forever as long as you don't open them. And even if they do somehow get dried out, you can add a little water to the container and they are good as new. :)

    • jen

      Hi ya'll. First a vent – I never get any cool coupons out of the crts (insert big frowny face) or any $/$$ in my emails (insert super big frowny face). Ok I'm done venting.

      I'm in VA – went to my local CVS store earlier this week… was able to get 4 things of wipes (at the 2.50 price). I was pretty excited and then I was out again today and thought I'd stop by to see if they had any still. I went in and they had two left. *Yay* but then at the register, they rang up as 7.99. I had the same cashier I'd had earlier in the week and I asked her why they weren't ringing up as 2/5. She said the sale price was for the smaller wipes. So I don't know if it's like this in all areas, but just thought I'd give ya'll a heads up.

      • joellenfreeman

        Same happened to my daughter in Lexington, SC after she had bought some earlier in the week as well.

    • stephanie

      i went to CVS 2 days ago and picked up a pack and they charged me 2.50 but today they charged 7.99..

    • KD

      FYI — I went to 2 different CVS stores in Durham, NC tonight and the larger refill wipes were scanning at $7.99, and NOT 2/$5.00. The only ones on sale there were the wipes actually advertised in the flyer. Bummer.

    • I'm going to frame these and hang them when my husband's at work and see how long it takes him to notice when he gets home!

    • AmberGT

      I have 4 friends who are currently pregnant, I have a baby myself as well as a young child, and have a friend who teaches 1st grade. I bought 18 packs and intend on distributing them as I see accordingly and keeping several packs for my children. I think stocking up is a wonderful thing, and like Jenny says if you can pay nearly nothing for something and are able to give them to someone who needs them…its a wonderful feeling. I intend on doing just that. Greedy….I think not.

    • tinasc

      Well, my store here in Florence, SC must be the only one NOT putting them on sale, they are ringing up $7.99. I am so bummed..

      • guest

        This pricing mistake was fixed several days ago – it was only $2.50 for a couple of days. Unfortunately Jenny did not update the original post to reflect that, so several people did not realize that the 'deal' had ended if they did not read the most recent posts. Sorry you missed out, believe me I know the feeling.

    • alwayskala

      as it turns out, i went thursday (too late) to check this deal out, and my local store told me that it was a corporate mistake…but oh well. i'm not going to die over baby wipes or stress myself out over it. as we all know, deals come and go. and besides, all the money this site saves me all together, it's not going to kill me to buy wipes at a regular price when needed. afterall, my kids needs come first. thanks jenny for posting and helping those in need. for those of you having a new baby or who have had a new baby, congrats and enjoy! :) name brand baby wipes and diapers become name brand shoes and electronics in no time.

    • stefluvs2sign

      Here in St. Pete Florida the refills rang up as $5.99 a pack not $2.50 :(

    • jennifr1966

      Every deal is a big deal to me! Thanks for the heads-up!

      The CVS where I live had them on sale for $5.99 not $2.50…am I missing something??
