Just a quick heads up that many of you are reporting the awesome CVS Pampers deal that technically starts tomorrow is really a limit of 3!!

How do you know what the limit is?
Buy 2 and then look on your receipt if you have reached the limit you will see:
“**Pampers Offer limit Reached**”

If you don’t see limit reached after the second one then enjoy getting another pack at such a great price!

What is the deal?

$3 ECB wyb Pampers Diapers Jumbo pk or Easy Ups $8.97 Limit 2??
-$1.50 off Pampers Diapers or Pants, PG 2/07
-$1.50 off Pampers Easy Ups Trainers, PG 2/07
-$1.50 off Pampers Extra Protection Diapers, PG 2/07
-$2 off Pampers Swaddlers, Cruisers or Extra Protection Diapers, PG 2/21 or RP 3/14

(makes it $3.97-$4.47 ea)

(thanks Salina!)

    • Yacoomba

      SWEET!!!!!!! Just wanted to add Walmart has the tubs of Pampers wipes marked down to $1.97; use your $0.50 off manufacturer coupon for wipes from PG 2/07and it makes it much cheaper ;-)

      Thanks Jenny!!!!!

    • vgwagoner

      I bought 4 packs on my 1st order got $6 ECB, then 2 packs on my next order and got another $3 ECB – I bought 10 packs today for less than $70, would have done even better if I had Qs for all the packs I bought, but I am still very excited! Dont look for size 4s in the Burlington NC area though, I have wiped out 2 stores :)

      • How are y'all getting this deal so early?!? I thought the deal does not start until like 8pm and only if you have a 24 hour store.

        • I think it depends on the individual store. A girl at my particular store told me they actually run both the previous and the upcoming weekly deals on Saturday at the same time. Once, without knowing it, I caught the end of a ECB reward on cokes AND the beginning of a buy 4 get one free deal and got 5 24 packs for a ridiculous deal. I don't know if they still do that or if it was a fluke, but I didn't complain!

        • Kelley

          I go around noon to my store (not a 24 hour store) and am able to get deals for both weeks. I am near 3 and they all start on Saturday. I also got 2 packs of diapers and my receipt shows that I can get another diaper deal also.

        • valeriejcm

          My store's flyer comes out in the local newspaper on the Tuesday before the sale starts, so they honor the new sale starting on Tuesday!

        • Christine

          My store is NOT a 24 hr store and they let us have the Sunday deals on Saturday evening, usually after 5pm or 6pm, can't remember the time. I was able to get 3 packs and got back $9.00 total ecbs.

    • Stacey

      I wondered about that when I bought two packs this afternoon and it didn't say limit reached. I might have to stop by again!

    • At my CVS, the ECB signs were only on the baby dry type, and I had Qs for cruisers. The cruisers are printing ECBs, too, they just don't seem to be advertising that fact.

      I got two and don't have a “limit reached” message yet. Heading back tomorrow! Thanks!

    • Debbie33

      I went in this evening and they had the signs up for the diapers but said when I went to go check out that the sale doesn't start until tomorrow. :( Oh well. I didn't get a $3 off $15 coupon either. It's getting really old that I am never getting that coupon as much as I shop there.

    • $5 off $40 – not a great coupon, but if you need diapers, this would be almost perfect.I am doing 2 Pampers, 1 Zyrtex at $18.99, and the $3.99 colgate = 40.92 minus all of the coupons and saved ECB=$8.49 so myopp=$18.43 and I will get $16.99 in ECB’s back. Score!

      • I had to take out link sorry. CVS sends me nasty letters if we link to store coupons they sent out in emails. That is a great deal though!!

    • Michelle

      I was able to get 3. I bought 2 crusiers and one easy ups. I did 2 first, then checked my receipt and even asked the cashier before ringing up a 3rd.

    • Lucy

      Sweet! Cheap diapers rock!

      If any of you bought the Pampers big pack diapers before, some had coupons inside for $2 off Pampers Cruisers. That's what I'm using :) Too bad I ran out of the Easy Ups coupons, could use both diapers and pull ups

    • emilymom

      Okay. I want to be sure I know what to do tomorrow when I go to purchase my diapers…do I use the ECB's that I recieve on another Pampers transaction while i am there? Or do I need to save them for another trip?

      • RushNSaver

        Yes, you can use ECB from previous pampers purchase :)

      • Michelle

        it depends on how you want to do it. If you have no ecb's and want as little out of pocket as possible and don't have a cvs coupon for $/$$, then I would recommend doing them one at a time and using the ecbs from one to pay on the next. You can do this easily at most CVS, and a few pointers for helping it to go quicker and smoother, have cash, and leave your cvs card out, and tell the cashier how many transactions you are doing. In my experience the cashiers are pretty used to us crazy coupon ladies(and gents) and know that you are going to use the ecbs from one to pay for the next and will even tear the off your receipt and “help' you through checkout. I would follow Jennys ideas and do the toothpaste first, pay, and then use the ecb's and q to pay for one diaper, then repeat, repeat. Save your ecb's for next week, or use on another ecb deal. HTH

    • leighsc

      I bought our 3 tonight, it was great getting the extra pack.

    • Kim F

      can i get 3 from one store, then go to another store and get 3 more? or does the computer know my card has reached it's limit?

      • Alisha

        It goes by your card number, so the computer will know even if you got to another store.

    • christie1225

      Just wanted to let you all know about a freebie. Go to Shutterfly and scroll down to bottom until you get to Wink. You can get a free photo strip!!! Completely free; no shipping or anything. It was very simple.

    • Stacy

      I went this morning in easley,sc I bought 3 packs of diappers and it still says print limit not reached. so i went to another CVS and used my husbands card and Bought 3 packs of diappers on his card and it also says on his print limit not reached

      • littlemama8

        Did you get ECB's back for all of them?

        • stacy

          yes I got 9 back on each card

          • adriandg

            This morning I bought 2 packs and got my $6 ECB's, I then did another transaction and bought the 3rd pack and got another $3 ECB's. I took my Mom's card and went back this afternoon and bought all 3 at once and only got back $6 ECB's. I got the message at the bottom of my receipt stating that I was still eligible for one. They told me that I could try returning one pack and then re-buying it to get the last $3 ECB but they wouldn't give me back my $2 off coupon so it would have defeated the purpose. My advice is to buy in two separate transactions!

            • Louise

              I am a cashier at CVS. Next time you return it and tell them you want the coupon put on a gift card… we don't just float that money from returned items and we can't give it back WE ARE SUPPOSED to put it on a gift card so you wont loose it!

    • kkennedy

      Does anyone know if the Pampers Extra Protection diapers are included?

      • astridholliman11

        They should be because the ad just states Pampers jumbo packs. The store I went to doesn't carry them, though.

    • allisonmundy

      CVS just paid me .02 cents for pampers cruisers, 3$ bucks, 3.99$ bucks, 2 manufacturer coupon!! So excited!!

    • Anon

      I just left CVS and bought 3 packs of pampers. My reciept still does not say print limit reached, however, I only got extra care bucks on 2 packages of diapers. FYI.

      • moneysaved4disney

        me too at a mt pleasant store. still a good deal with just coupons…got a $5/$25 when i scanned my card on the way in!! 3 packs of pampers for $15…and got back $6ecb…can't beat that!

      • sjenkins3

        Thats what happened to me. May go back for another pack!

    • Ashley

      I got an email last night from CVS with a $5 off $30 coupon!! It was only good yesterday and today. I did purchase 3 packs of Pampers, but only printed out $6 ECB, still says I have 1 limit remaining. Should I go back and ask for my $3 ECB?

      • Yacoomba

        How do you all get those coupons sent to you, my husband gets them but he said he never signed up to receive them? Curious as is there something I should be doing? I'm in CVS 2-4 times per week shopping so I would think I would be the candidate to get an email every now or then (lol)

        • Ashley

          Yacoomba, did you sign up online and register your CVS card? that's the only explanation as to why I get my coupons emailed to me.

          • Yacoomba

            I did sign up and register my card, but I've never gotten anything for some reason…hmm oh well I guess I will continue to wait. It's weird because my hubs doesn't even shop there like me but he gets the $5 off $15 purchase if he happens to scan his card or the emails. Thanks for responding :-)

            • Elizabeth

              They may know your in the same house hold and only do one per House Hold?

            • Yacoomba

              That could be also-he said that was his first emailed one he has received from CVS. Only emailed one I got was for joining that CVS panel and taking the survey..I got $15 free ECB's to use. That was awesome-haven't been asked to do another survey yet, but it sure would be nice right about now :-)
              Thanks for the response :-)

        • Mel

          Maybe you are shopping there too much….I seem to get a coupon emailed when I skip a week! Just guessing. I have only gotten $5 off $20 and $30 though.

          • Yacoomba

            Maybe that's what it is because my husband doesn't go often at all to be honest (very rare), I only go so often to get the extra $1 for using my tote because it helps me out when I do my shopping for the week. I mentioned it to him last night about maybe they give him the $$$ off certain amounts to entice him to come in-with me I'm already there (makes sense). I did get that $5 off $15 a few weeks back when the Huggies wipes deal (or glitch happened). Thanks for responding :-)

      • wendythelen

        did the same thing to me, not sure what to do…

      • travelguy1966

        I had the same situation and the manager could not explain to me why, I simply returned the 3rd pack. It appears you have to get the 3rd in a seperate transaction. The manager only said the flyer and signs say Limit 2. But could not explain why the receipt said I still had one remaining to reach the limit. Sure sounds like a glitch. I did not get the $2 coupon back when I returend the 3rd pack so that $2 actually went towards lowering my overall purchase.

      • Ashley

        Soooooo, I just went back to CVS (been waiting on the husband to get home to watch the little one), and asked the girl if I could return one pack of pampers and re-buy to get my ECB's. She looked a little stressed (before I got to the register) and she was texting, and said, “I'll just print you 3 ECB's.” Very cool, b/c she used the store card and my card still says I have not reached my limit!! Going back tomorrow to buy another pack!! So I got 3 packs of pampers, 1 mouth rinse, 1 toothpaste, and 1 glucometer for $2.59 after Q's and ECB's!!!!

        • Yacoomba

          The guy I had looked stressed out this morning too-lol. It didn't help I came through with my million coupons and ECB's.. but oh well :-) Awesome that you got 3 ECB's extra though :-)

    • WAhoo I got my pack of free pampers. Awesome deal. I love you CVS. I saved $63 at CVS today spent only $30

    • andrea

      got 3 packs diapers with ecbs each time. did 3 separate transactions though. don't know if that made the difference.

    • Katie

      I just wanted to comment that this deal is good on the baby dry diapers or cruisers. There are $2.00 coupons off of the cruisers, but it is actually a better deal per diaper if you use the $1.50 off any and buy the baby dry becuase there are more diapers per pack!
      Size 4 cruisers 27 per pack @ 3.97 = .147 per diaper
      Size 4 baby dry 34 per pack @ 4.47 = .131 per diaper!

      Hope this helps someone!

      • Yacoomba

        I was looking at that in the store this morning, but didn't have my other coupons with me..an extra 14 diapers goes a long way :-) Good observation!!!
        Think I will utilize this on my 3rd pack I still can get (woohoo)

      • Brandi

        I've never noticed that they had a different number in them. I would make up the difference in laundry detergent though because for some reason the Baby Dry diapers always leak on my girls.

    • I have some Pamper’s coupons that I would be glad to mail to someone. My email address is cls1530@gmail.com. First response with address in it and I will mail all that I have to you tomorrow. I live in Georgia so if you live close you should get them by Wednesday.

      • I had someone claim the coupons.

    • My sister and I both did our CVS shopping. I love cheap diapers!

    • Melissa H

      This is definitely true … I bought 3 packs in 2 transactions this morning, got $3 ECB's on each of the 3 packs, but my second receipt does say Limit Reached now … Thank you for all you do Jenny … I spent $21 and saved $76 this morning, and every item I took home are items my family and I will actually use :)

    • Just so you know, CVS is allowing 3 purchases for the pamper deal to get your $3 ECB's. I bought 4 packages total and used the last $3 on the 4th package. :)

    • Kim

      Yes, I went to CVS today and got THREE packs and then reached my limit!! Yay CVS!

    • MistyB

      Okay can someone help me out? Tell me if I got this right, I'm new to the whole CVS thing. I have 4.00 in ECB right now. I also have 3 coupons for $2 off each on these diapers. If I go into CVS and get my diaper deal this is what it should look like (?)
      Transaction 1
      Diapers 8.97
      -$2 off coupon
      -$4 ECB
      (Makes it 2.97) Get back $3.00 ECB (made .03cents)

      Trans #2
      Diapers 8.97
      -$2 off coupon
      -$3 ECB
      Makes it 3.97, get back $3.00 ECB making diapers actually .97cents

      Trans #3
      diapers 8.97
      -$2 off coupon
      -$3 ECB
      Making them 3.97 Getting back $3 ECB making diapers .97cents
      so total oop this trip will be 10.94?????
      Did I get all this right?? If not, someone please help me. i want to take advantage of this diaper deal. I have 2 in diapers!!! Thanks in advance!!

      • socoupon

        You got it!

    • deb4ala2

      I bought a pack of newborn swaddlers and a pack of easy up. Got them for $11 after all my coupons. I then turned around and used the $6 on 3 12 packs of cokes.

      I exchanged the diapers today for Huggies at Walmart. My baby is allergic to Pampers, however, I hate for all the coupons to go to waste.

    • Jennifer

      Do you have to purchase 3 package of diapers and then you get the ecb I am not sure how this works I haven't shop CVS yet and Iike to know because I need diapers. thank you

      • elisa

        No, you can purchase just one pack and get back 3 ECB's. You will get 3 ECB's back for EACH pack you purchase, up to the limit of 2 (or 3, it seems). Hope that helps. =)

    • Tiffany

      I went to CVS yesterday got 1 pack of EasyUPs,2 packs of Babydry and still having reached the offer limit.I did each on a different transaction and each printed ECB.

    • helpmesave

      I have a question about ECB's. I'm new to CVS, but Jenny's deal idea this week looks good. I'm also looking at the 3 ECB's wyb $10 of Easter candy. Does anyone know if the $10 is b4 or after q's? We're making baskets for teacher appreciation week. Will throw in some candy if I can make it work. Thanks.

    • jenna

      Jenny & everyone else – does your CVS limit transactions? Today I shopped with intent to purchase [sounds more like a crime…] 3 packs of pampers, some CG makeup, and Kleenex. The girl at the register told me I could only make 2 transactions, and then she started scanning stuff before I could even do the math on which ones to do when!! (I don't like being rushed or distracted!!) I made her cancel the first transaction because she had totaled it out without me being able to use Qs. So, then she told me I could ONLY buy 2 packs of pampers… so I just went with it, but sure enough, my receipt said I had purchased 2 and I had 1more before I reached my limit. I'm guessing not even the store employees know what is “actually” on sale.

      Oh and I found a 3-pack of 100-ct. Kleenex for $2.99, in case you're looking for something to spend those ECBs on! (didn't have Qs to use with me..) I don't know what facial tissue costs in your area, but that's a very good deal for me.

      Thanks, Jenny, for all your hard work and our profits from it!

    • sarah

      yes it worked. Got them super cheap with the 2.00 dollar off coupons out of the pampers box. Thanks

    • dealapprentice

      I think WAGS deals for Huggies is better by 0.20 cents per diaper pack

      $5 RR wyb (3) or more Kimberly Clark Products listed
      Huggies or Pull-Ups Jumbo pk, $8.99
      -$3 off Huggies Diapers printable or printable (buy 3, use 3 coupons makes it $4.32 ea)

      • dealapprentice

        I meant to add if you dont have the $2 pamoers coupon. You dont have to deal with the limit stuff at WAGS.

    • Patty

      Went to CVS today and came away with great deal on Pampers..(New Grandchild due in August).. Using coupons, extra bucks and a $2 off any baby product from the store, I bought 3 packs of diapers and 1 pack of wipes, Spent about $11.

    • Louise =)

      Hey guys and gals of couponing… I am a worker of CVS in North GA.. I was too one of the unknowing “rude” Cashiers… I am apologizing and telling you all that of course I know my mistakes and had NO IDEA we get reimbursed. I guess its common sense but I never knew it really? And That mos tof the cashiers like that [Which I am not anymore PROMISE =)] are being rude because they think you should pay for what you buy, they do not understand the gift and miracle of coupons and probably get aggravated with having to take the time. ….

      I have seen a couple comments on changing the value to the products price .. lowering it.. because the register does not allow a coupon for overage at the register. I don't know why either.
      But one way to make it easier would be to ask the cashier to call someone else to either ring you up or wait around until you leave so in case someone else comes as it does take a while when you have coupon shoppers. And if the cashier is rude let them know first, maybe they don't realize, maybe its a bad day, or maybe they dont understand it. Try to explain we get reimbursed.

      Really you should not deal with hateful cashiers but I promise most are not trained or told of coupon updates only what we aren't allowed to accept. They just go by register.

      Also we have people who do try and abuse it. By getting 5 cards… and we have a couple of regular shoppers who never buy items from our store but return them with NO receipt. And they are of course coupon shoppers and so regular they are the usually first ones we deal with and it ruins it. So it is NOT YOU. JUST that we feel getting ripped off at first and continually if not explained. Sorry so long.
      I do understand as you can see I am on here and would love to get into this as well.

    • joyfullysaving

      You know I just bought 3 deals and I still don't see “Limit Reached” so does that mean I can go back and get more??? I may try if I go out again today.

    • I got 4 deals today in 3 separate transactions so I think you can keep doing it until your receipt says limit reached.
