CVS: Neutrogena Limit unknown

on 4.12.2010 at 10:00am

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


Just a quick heads up, if you are like me and love Neutrogena sunscreen and lotions, the CVS Neutrogena deal is not a limit of 1. You can at least do two deals if not more.  The final limit has not been confirmed by anyone yet.

What’s the Deal?

$5 ECB wyb $15 Neutrogena Limit ??
Deep Clean Cleanser, Toner, Scrub, Eye Makeup Remover, or Wipes $6.99
Intensified Day Moisture or Light Night Cream (excludes Healthy Defense) $9.99
Suncare or Sunless $9.99
-$1 off Neutrogena Hand & Body Lotion SS 2/07
-$2 off Neutrogena Suncare

How do you know if the limit is reached?
Your receipt will show **Neutrogena Offer Limit Reached**

(thanks Mandy!)

    • Thanks!

    • Amber

      they had better suncare deals last year… those are still yet to come this year, right?!

      • They are. I expect them more towards the end of May. These beginning deals are more for folks in FL and other warmer areas that are already getting outside a lot!

        • I already got sunburt at the French Quarter Festival last weekend (even with sunscreen on!), so I'm jumping on the first sunscreen deal I can get!

        • mandy

          Definitely! Living in Jacksonville, FL, it's already summer!!

        • Jeannie

          Manager of my CVS told us he has seen the upcoming CVS ads and June is going to be HUGE for ECBs and great deals….super excited!

        • mandieellis

          We are heading to the beach towards the end of May, I would rather have some on hand now than chance missing out. lol Thanks for your hard work

    • megan

      Publix has a good deal with the Coppertone products…..ours are listed at $6.49 (continuous spray) plus the $2 off advantage coupon (green flyer I think) and the $1 off printable from the coppertone website make them $3.49 each.

      • Ashley

        I was going to mention that same deal Megan. I did that yesterday and was super happy about it. I think that's cheaper than I've ever gotten name brand sunscreen. Even the CVS brand was $7.99 for the spray. I'm going to see if I can print off another printable and try to do the deal again. Thanks for reminding me!

        • mrfs2boys

          I was able to print many prints of the Coppertone sunscreen coupon! I also did the Publix deal!!

      • aussie509

        where did you get the cooper tone printable?

        • Ashley

          I just went to the coupon database on Hotcouponworld.com and searched for coppertone. You'll see the $1/1 link there.

      • Megan

        Publix changed it up a little today—last week the Coppertone Sport (royal blue bottles) were $6.49, this week the White bottle and Kids Coppertone bottles (maybe turquoise bottles) are on sale. I have printed at least 8 coupons from three different computers for the $1 off from the Coppertone website so there may not be a limit on these. Doesn't matter to me which though because all three of us are PALE and fry easily. We are outside a lot so will have no problem going through 8 bottles of spray since we are yard/outside people. I do recall that the Turquoise Kids version seemed to be a little sticker than the others in the past.

    • mydeere5

      They have the BEST baby sunblock I have ever used!!! Even use it on my own face, not greasy, feels like a light moisturizer with no “sunscreen” smell and best of all it really works!!! I wish I'd had it for my first two children when they were babies.

      • Lynn

        Who has the best, Coppertone or Neutrogena? I have a 14 month old and want to make sure we get something that is going to work well, we love in GA………..it's already hot! Thanks in advance!

        • kardomr

          My mom had skin cancer last year. Her dermotologist recommended Neutrogena with Helioplex.
          Check your health reimbursement accounts. Some cover sunscreen if the SPF is a certain level. (Though, the charge is always denied and I always have to write a letter.)

        • mydeere5

          I have 3 kids and have tried them all. My two youngest have very sensitive skin and I've found the Neutrogena to be wonderful…they don't even mind when I put it on them . I discovered the Neutrogena when my daughter was 6 months old and have used it ever since. I use it year round on each of our faces including my husband and myself. Just my opinion but the Neutrogena has been far superior to the Coppertone in our family. Hope that helps!

    • elizabeth

      Today's CVS trip: total value of products–$117.47. I spent $24.42 and saved $93.05! Oh, and I also have $4.50 in ECBs for my next trip. We won't need toilet paper or body wash for a looooong time LOL :D

    • Nancy

      Is the best way to buy two sunscreens? I am new to this, buying two would give the the $15.00 in Neutrogena and get the $5.00 ECB'S. Just asking.

    • BethMc

      The Publix green advantage coupon is a manu. coupon.

      • millsshop

        It has a manufacturer coupon on Neutrogena, but a store coupon for Coppertone.

        Will CVS accept this manufacturer coupon when it is labelled for Publix?

        • mandy

          I think so – I've used a save-a-lot coupon before (manuf coupon with save-a-lot logo)…but, to prevent any complications, I'm just going to cut the publix part off :)

        • melissa

          nope they only accept cvs or man. coupons.

        • Michelle

          You need to ask your individual store….call them up. My CVS does take competitor coupons so they would defnitely take it.

    • misskris

      wondering if this deal would be better at publix
      neutrogena suncare staring @ 7.99
      -$2 manf q
      -$2 green advantage
      -$1 wags only manf q

      or would it be like using to manf q's??

    • I just got a $4/$20 off beauty purchase in my email! This deal will work with that coupon.

      My favorite is Neutrogena Ultra Sheer Dry-Touch Sunblock Spf 30 or higher for $9.99 and Neutrogena Fresh Cooling Body Mist Sunblock Spf 45 $9.99

      Buy 2 for $19.98 add a filler item for $.50 Any filler suggestions?
      -$2 printable
      -$2 printable
      $12.48 OOP
      Get $5 ECB
      $7.48 for 2 sunscreens and filler after ECBs! Not bad!

      • Michelle

        Yes, I used a piece of easter candy that was half price…..for my filler item when I did this deal on Sunday. I actually had a $5 off $20 Rite Aid coupon that my CVS accepts…..which made this a sweet deal! Also, I used ECB's and paid .78 cents!

      • ShannonStrader

        But you don't need filler items at CVS. Am I just confused???/ I have never used a filler item.

        • triciaj

          The only reason they needed a filler for those transactions is to bring the total up to $20 so they could use the -$4/20 or -$5/20 coupons.

      • Yeah, the filler needs to be a “beauty” item so maybe the $.50 pack of CVS brand q-tips might work?

    • aussie509

      I bought 2 spf70 ( with a bonus) and used most ring up $9.99 ea
      had 2 $2.00 off cpns.$5 ecb's,2 $1 (and one printed out when I scanned my card on the machine.)
      total $8.98 plus tax $10.78
      got $5 back!!

    • Heather

      Is anyone having trouble printing the $2 coupon? Says site is down for maintenance.

    • Marie

      Please be CAREFUL using spray sunscreen. I recall reading in the newpaper they are investigating the micro particles for cancer and did not recommend it for children. Don't take my word for it but please check it out for yourself. Sorry to be a party pooper.

      • Amy J.

        Thanks for the heads-up, Marie, I'll definitely check into that.
        From personal experience, I used Aveeno spray sunscreen on my 4 yr. old recently……not only did it stain/discolor her brand new purple tank top, but she also ended up with little bumps on her neck, shoulders and upper arms. The odd thing is that the bumps were NOT red or anything….had she not been sitting on my lap in the shade to cool down, and had I not rubbed her upper arm, I may not have noticed! She does have sensitive skin (as do I) but her skin has never reacted to sunscreen prior to this. Needless to say, I won't be buying that brand again.
        I'm not going to completely rule out the spray sunscreens until I research it first, but please do be careful if you have sensitive skin.
        Yesterday at CVS, I bought 2 of the Neutrogena Sensitive Skin sunscreens (NOT the spray), and I'll be going back to get 2 more tomorrow…..it's a nice deal and using a $3 off $15 Q, two $2 manuf. Q's and my ECB's makes it even better!

      Really the majority of sunscreens are very harmful! It’s a double whammy…use harmful chemicals to protect your skin or risk it in the sun. If you would like to see how your sunscreen rates or any other cosmetic and/or baby product go to http://www.cosmeticsdatabase.com. It’s very eye opening and can help you select a safer product to use!

    • SFLS

      And check the expiration dates! One of mine was expired 01/2010. Exchanged it today and there were still others on the shelf even older – one was 2009!

      My Derm highly recommends the Neutrogena with Helioplex so stocking up. And the same Derm recommends spray sunscreen esp for children – easier to apply, quick to dry and most kids are more willing to spray!

      • Amy J.

        Thanks for the reminder about the expiration dates…..I ALWAYS check those on food, but for some reason forgot to check the sunscreen I bought yesterday……sure enough, one expires 04/2010……going to exchange it tomorrow! :-)
        Thanks again, SFLS!

        oh, be careful, the Aveeno spray sunscreen i used on my daughter caused bumps and discolored her clothes…..hopefully the Neutrogena spray won't do either of those things!

    • JJ

      Just remember you can get these usually for free at one time around may and July :) if your shopping at CVS right you should never pay more than 3 bucks out of pocket and that is tax :)

    • Rm

      Our Dollar Tree has great Sun Care. “Max” brand (?) and Coppertone, last year. Lotions and sprays available. One year they had the “No-Ad” brand. Their products have worked great and only cost 1$. I buy 10 bottles at a time. We live in FL…go figure.

    • kcreviews

      I ended up getting two spray on Neutrogena sunscreens for $4 each after coupons, ECBs, and my $3 off $15. :) And I made sure the expys were over a year in the future.

    • clw2283

      Has anyone tried to do more than one of the Neutrogena deals? I've already spent $15 worth and got $5 ECB, but I was thinking about trying it again. I don't want to risk not getting the ECB back.

      • vfc8178

        I have done it twice and my receipt still doesn't say “Limit Reached”. I am going to try again tomorrow because I have a $4 off $20 coupon that expires.

        • cjgrubbs

          I did it the first time, bought 2 at 9.99 and got the $5 dollars. My receipt said spend $15 to get $5. So I went back today (had to trade my sunscreens b/c they were both expired) and I bought another thinking that would put me at 29.97 and it would probably print another $5 ECB but it didn't. My receipt now says I need to spend $5.01 to get another ECB. It's like with the first deal, the overage doesn't count….. I'm confused and hate to go back AGAIN!

          • vfc8178

            I just came back from CVS and was able to do the Neutrogena deal AGAIN! This is the 3rd time and I did get my $5 ECB. It still doesn't say “Limit Reached” but I think we are pretty well stocked for now.

    • Boo

      Does anyone know the email address or domain from which the CVS coupon comes from when you sign up for the care program?

    • mandieellis

      We are heading to the beach towards the end of May, I would rather have some on hand now than chance missing out. lol Thanks for your hard work
