    • There is also a 2.99 rebate for the Bayer in the 10/17 ss

    • Yolanda

      I'm also thinking that there was a rebate in the paper for Bufferin today… might want to check

      • Kristy

        Yeppers.. like Beth said.. 2.99 so its actually a moneymaker! LOVE THOSE!

        • joetta

          how did that happen

    • brooke

      I am loving the freebies this week!

    • Ocrow

      Do you have to have a coupon to get the split end mender? I was not sure

      • Livserge331

        You go to the Coupon Center in the store (it's like the price check scanners they have throughout the store in Target) and scan your CVS card. Wait a few seconds, and you'll get a strip of store coupons. One should be for the Split End Mender. They have been doing these kind of promotions for a few weeks now, to encourage people to get into the habit of checking at those coupon stations each time they come in. I don't think that most customers even know about them!

      • sarahcas

        I got the split end mender today without a coupon and it printed my 7.49 ECB with no problems.

    • Kimdflores

      walgreens will not take manf coupon and store coupon on same item. I have tried it. If you look on store coupon, it states it is a manf coupon. They will not take 2 manf coupons for 1 item. This is one of their new rules with coupons

      • Marsha

        I just did this today with the Glade candles. I used a Glade candle coupon and a Walgreens Glade candle coupon from the October coupon booklet from Walgreens.

      • Christywebber

        I think if you have a filler item, so that you don't have more coupons than items, it will work.

      • Darcy

        In the 9/12 Smartsource there is an advertisement showing that Walgreens DOES accept a manufacture's coupon along with a coupon from the monthly coupon book. It shows Dulcolax Balance 7-dose as 6.99 minus Walgreens Instant Coupon Savings of $2.00 minus Dulcolax Coupon Savings of $3.00 (coupon in this insert) for a final cost of 1.99. I'd suggest finding this ad and taking it into your Walgreens to show them that they do accept two on one item.

      • m&b

        My Walgreens is fantastic. All of their cashiers know the coupon system for their store. They all remind you about filler items. The stores coupon booklet of coupons can be stacked with coupons from your weekly sunday paper or printable online coupons. Just remember the walgreens golden rule. You MUST have one item per coupon used. If you have six coupons for 3 items you must buy 3 more of anything you want in the store to cover the use of the coupons. These items are what Jenny refers to as fillers.

    • Karensweeney2002

      West Nashville CVS on Charlotte is out of the candy corn, but the machine is still giving coupons… they suggested I take the coupon to the Belle Meade CVS since they have lots of candy corn left…

    • Coupons090

      i got the brach's candy coupon twice, is this bc i didn't use the first one ? can i use both of them now?

      • Freedomspradley1

        They are both good as long as they haven't expired.

        • Coupons090

          this has me thinking if i went in each day and scanned my card can i get the freebie coupons each time i am in there? anyone tried this?

          • Bamacat

            I almost never get coupons 2 days in a row.

          • Firstbrownie

            I had 3 candy corn coupons pop out for me throughout the week; I went in probably 4-5 days this week, too. My store is just 2 minutes from my home so I like to make a quick trip whenever possible (especially since there seems to be lots of clearance stuff out lately!). Two times when I went in, I received the message that there were no coupons available today, but to check back tomorrow. Both times, it was my first time in the store for the day. So, to answer your question, I don't think so. I wish!!!!

    • Sandi

      I have gotten the Brach's coupon twice now, but both of them expired the next day with no candy corn to be found. CVS sent me a coupon in the mail for a free Schick Hydro razor! I'm hoping to use it this week with ECB deal.

      • Guest

        Maybe you could get a raincheck.

      • Paige

        My CVS was out of the Brach's but they substituted their CVS brand candy corn for it so I still got it for my 8 cent tax :)

    • Terry

      How do I get the Neutrogena Split ender?

      Loive this side, saved a lot of money!!


      • Betty

        It is just one that is in the store. I just got mine. It wasn't in the ad but there was a tag that said $7.49 ECB.

    • Ilovewdw

      Its times like these…..I wish my area didnt charge 10% sales tax….even for q'd items.

    • Cputman200

      I just received a CVS email with an ad near the bottom that says “Happy Halloween!spend $15 on participating PepsiCo products and get $5 in extra bucks” and a link to a $1 off coupon. I don't see it in this weeks print ad in the Atlanta area. Do you think it will still work? Is this an extra deal?

    • Bamabobbie

      Don't know where else to post this but is there anyone in the Birmingham area having trouble with getting their coupons in the Sunday paper. Out of home delivery and two other papers only one had the red plum coupons. A friend did not get any in her paper. Don't really know what to do about it except to complain and that doesn't help. You know it would be the one with the high dollar nieva coupon???

      • Lisa

        One of my friends was missing her coupons one Sunday (delivery)…She just called the b'ham news and they sent them to her. IT only took a day or two

        • Bamabobbie

          Thanks for the replies. Just think it's strange that some peopte get them and some don't in the same area of town.

        • Mzlinzy

          Thanks for the tip. I wonder why that worked for her and not me? On a similar note, I recently fired off an “I;m an unhappy customer” note to Bryan (aka Sara Lee). And was delighted to get coupns for free products up to $4. I just won;t buy another of that type product.

      • allison

        I live in Gadsden and used to buy the B'ham News but now I have to buy the Gadsden Times too b/c both papers don't carry all the inserts. I've noticed that B'ham only carries Smartsource (no redplum or proctor & gamble) and the Gadsden Times only carries Redplum and proctor & gamble) Really frustrating since we used to be able to get all the inserts in the B'ham paper.

        • Mdobbs12004

          i get the gadsden times and the b'ham paper every week and i have found that i get the same coupon out of both with the exception that b'ham has more! i also get a sat. paper the sand mtn. reporter which is .50 and it usually has the redplum cpns

        • Bamabobbie

          Allison the Red Plum should have been in Sunday's Bham News or why was it it some and not others?

          • allison

            I don't get a home subscription of either paper-I go to a local gas station. At first I thought it was just a fluke that some of the inserts were missing out of the B'ham paper so I went to the gas station across the street-same thing. Each week I go to get my papers I look through each paper to make sure the inserts are in there and the B'ham paper only has smartsource in it. I have to buy the Gadsden paper to get Redplum and Proctor & Gamble. For those who get the home delivery of the Bham paper are all your inserts in there??

      • Mzlinzy

        Hey I live in the Birmingham area. And I have had problems for AGES with the paper. Missing inserts period: NEVER have CVS, rarely Walgreens, NEVER Publix, and on and on. I have complained to the Birmingham News to no avail. Recently tried contacting the store company websites. Will see how that works. I also have noticed that when I buy a paper when in southern suburbs, they are COMPLETE and often have more/different/better coupons. Home delivery just plain stinks. Unreliable delivery and contents. Thank Goodness for printables! Only wish more stores here accepted them, especially Food Giant as they double coupons on Mondays to 90 cents! Boooooo!

        • Bamabobbie

          Well, I'm at a loss on who to call next unless its the manager of the Bham News. Out of 6 inserts I only got 1 redplum. I really don't think that's “just” a mistake in sorting the papers. Maybe an intentional mistake. Where do all these people get coupons they sell? Also a friend at breakfast this morning that lives in another state said he has seen people buy a paper on Sunday and while the box is open go thru every paper and get the coupons. I do love my coupons but hope I never love them that much. Any ideas Jenny or anyone else on what else to do??

    • Betty

      Just had my BEST CVS visit. Got the Schick Hydro Razor, the Neutrogena Split End Mender, the CVS hand sanitizer spray, a tub of CVS baby wipes, and a pack of reeses pieces (had to spend $0.48). Used $4 Schick Q, $3 CVS Q that printed from the wonderful red machine for the baby wipes, $2 CVS emailed Q for the hand sanitizer, $2.99 ECB, $10.00 ECB…my subtotal was -.03!! WOOHOO!!!! Then I got back $5 ECB and $7.49 ECB for my next visit! I thought I was only going in for a razor!!! Made my day!

    • momof1.5

      Help! Anyone know how to make the Nivea $3 Q work at Walgreens since it is on sale for 2.50? I tried to buy it last night and use my coupon and the cashier and manager said I wouldn't be able to use my coupon since the value of the coupon was more than the price of the item. Thanks for any advice…I am new to drugstore land!

      • Mamaberry

        I don't like to say this, but the new coupon policy states:

        “In the event that any item’s selling price is less than the value of the coupon, Walgreens will only accept the coupon in exchange for the selling price of the item. Coupon redemption can never exceed the selling price of an item and no cash back is ever provided in exchange for any coupons.”

        So, yes… they can refuse the coupon… but they could also dumb down the coupon by manually entering it as a $2.50 coupon. I guess it's left up to mgmt to decide how to handle. boooooooo :(

        • Ajardh

          I had a problem yesterday at Walgreens and the manager was like she cant override the coupon. I was buying another item to offset it but she was acting dumb so I said well I will go to the Walgreens that I always go to. When I went to my regular store I =) used the (4) -$3 off/1 Nivea coupon and I got all 4 just fine and bought 2 packs of candy for the kids with the extra $2 back so I ended up paying .13cent. The managers will try to tell you other wise that you cant do it but it can be done. My rule of thumb is dont be upset about it the managers are more willing to override it and help you if you are nice to them.

      • Guest

        I had the same problem and never been back to Wags in two years. I give all my money to CVS. I have found you can get enough stuff for 5 families at CVS on one card.

      • grace

        the best thing to do is buy another Nivea item, I bought the women's body wash and had a $2 coupon with the mens and only paid for tax. if not, it will beep and depending on your manager, they might or might not take it. My friend just bought 3 men's body washes and used 2$3 coupons and she had no problem at all. the manager told me the best way is to buy another Nivea item

      • Ajardh

        I used 4 -$3.00off at the walgreens in Orlando, You do have to buy something else for it to work. So I had $2.00 leftover for the coupons so I bought the kids 2 packs of candy and I paid only .66cents.

    • Lorelei207

      My cvs was out of the split end mender, BUT they had a cart at thr front of the store marked 90% off with tons of facial products! I got an eye cream, foaming moisturizer, anti-aging serum, night cream, 2 facial scrubs,and 1 moisturizing body lotion for $20, and I saved $94! Each item was normally about $20 and I got them for $2 or less each!! I love cvs! (And I did not empty out the whole cart, left plenty for others).

      • Dewdropfairy

        wow, great job!

    • Rstorey5

      My Walgreens in Macon has the Air Wick i motions for $3.99. I had 3 coupons for $4.00 off and 2 for $2.00 off. Once I got to register the guy didnt want to sell to me because price was less than coupon. I said charge me $4 then. He had to call manager. It took more than 20 min to check out of Walgreens with 5 items. In the end I spend $6.00.

    • Zjqtcj

      Can somebody tell me what Neutrogena Triple Moisture Split End Mender is? Is it a facial moisture or something else? Thanks,

      • Bamabobbie

        got one today and it's for your hair

      • Pam A.

        It helps hair that has split ends. Probably make the hair shaft stronger.

    • alyw

      Not only is the bufferin free but above the $3.00 off coupon in my paper was a try me free mai in rebate! I just went to walgreens and the cashier wasn't going to put the coupons thru because they exceeded the price I explained that the managers usually make the price of the product for 1 cent higher then the coupon amount so she did and i paid .02 for 2 bufferin!

    • Meguardo

      The cashier at CVS gave me a rain check for the nuetrogena….is this right can you get a rain check for this?

      • Rstorey5

        Yes u can and the raincheck never expires..atleast at my CVS. I used a raincheck just the other day. Got the extra care bucks too. The raincheck was 8 months old.

    • Lara

      Relating to the Bufferin Walgreens deal: I believe the Bufferin coupon found in the October Walgreens Coupon Booklet is in fact a Manufacter's coupon, even though it's in a store coupon booklet. I am looking at it now and it says “manufacturer coupon” right on it. So, how can you combine this coupon with the other $3 off coupon from the 10/17 SS? My Walgreens won't allow it, and I can see why, as technically you would be trying to stack 2 manufacturers coupons on 1 item. Am I not correct?

      • Tiff715

        I got 3, two from one Walgreens and one from another and they let me use both coupons

    • scjaknma

      I thought rainchecks expired after one month.

      • Ileana

        CVS and Walgreens have no exp. date. I had the same question and asked at a couple of diffrents stores.

    • I got the free Bufferin ! It was awesome

      • guest

        Were you able to use 2 coupons?

        • Dianne

          I was. The 5.99 is the regular price, so use the WAGs coupon and the MQ. AND, like someone mentioned early in the comments, some inserts that had the MQ also had a try it free rebate for the Bufferin!

    • Terri

      Nivea Body Wash for men at Walgreens is 2/5.00….$3.00 off coupon in Sundays papers give you $1.00 extra just for buying it!!! WOOHOO!!!

    • Krnstrang

      I didn't receive any of these coupons at CVS. Do they give different ones at different stores?

    • Stellagray

      I got the Bufferin last night, took 15 minutes for them to figure out how to put in coupons. The Manager told me I was “cheating the system” and would do it this time, but never again……

      • Livserge331

        That's unacceptable for a manager to say that to you. CVS policy is to accept one manufacturer coupon and one store coupon per item. And they take competitor store coupons. So there is nothing wrong with what you did. It's not okay for staff to make customers feel like criminals. You should send an email to corporate.

    • Tina

      My CVS wouldn't give me a raincheck for the nuetrogena because they did not know about the special. How can I bring them something that proves I am not making this up?

      • Tina

        they asked for an event #

    • Livserge331

      Darn – was this a one week only thing? For some reason, I was thinking the Neutrogena deal was going to be a coupon from the coupon center (I guess because I read this quickly and my brain processed the Brach's candy corn deal.) So when I didn't get it from the coupon center yesterday, I moved on.

    • Tex_tinker_bell
