    • Rebecca

      can't find the revlon beauty tools coupon. Anybody find it?

      • sorry it was there earlier today :( I took the link off the list.

        • Rebecca

          Thanks–I appreciate you letting me know. I'm happy with what I can get and don't fret over what doesn't work out. Thanks for all your help.

    • Caity

      $1 off Nescafe Taster’s Choice is gone too :-( Just figured I'd share that so that others don't go through the trouble of signing up with all their personal info too.

    • Happymom

      I can never find Huggies Nighttime coupons….. Any suggestions?

      • Srhine85

        Often, the Huggies diapers just say $1/50 off any Huggies diapers or pants. I would use those coupons for the Nighttimes ones.

    • Cwollard

      the xtra q is in spanish???

    • Sina

      On 12/29 smart source and pg sent out insert with the grocery store ads with some of products above- plus grocery items that does not require a purchase of two.

    • This is going to be an AWESOME week to use the free excedrin coupons, plus I am doing a different scenerio with the listerine/total care. VERY excited.

    • Lasmith9454

      LOVE LOVE LOVE the new “delete this coupon” feature!

      • Lori

        What is it? I'm not seeing this feature.

        • Paige

          It look like after you create your list, you can then choose to delete some of the coupon match-ups that you do not need to see, making your shopping list neater and easier for you to read

    • Merg49

      South Beach Living bars printed $2 off instead of $1 off.

      • Firstbrownie

        I just printed 4 off….I was already thinking about doing the deal, and your post sealed it for me!!! Thanks for sharing!!

    • That $9.99 Bayer Contour Glucose meter is the USB one, and there is a $20 off coupon in RP 10/31 or on the manufacturer's website. It is also on sale at Wags for $9.99. I ended up buying it from Wags as a Christmas gift. Of course, I didn't bother trying to use the coupon there, but perhaps CVS will adjust the price of the item or the coupon to make it work so that you get it for FREE!

      • Srhine85

        it expired on 12/31/10

    • Sarah

      Can we use both free excedrin coupons in the same transaction?

      • Erin

        I had a big bunch of trouble trying to redeem two “FREE” Always coupons in the same transaction last week (so I could get the ECBs back). The girl kept trying to explain to me that I could only use one “free” manufacturer coupon per transaction, blah, blah, and it just embarassed me, although I thought she was absolutely wrong. Maybe you will have better luck!

      • Angela

        I am a cvs worker, someone came in with these FREE coupons I was like looking at them where she got them… I went to the http://www.excedrin.com website I only see $1 off ones, i have the circular ones for $2.50 off, i noticed you said the FREE ones where did you get them, i went to the link jenny provided and it sent me to http://www.coupons.com but not anything FREE for them..???

    • Courtney

      question about trans #2 wouldnt you get back 9 ecb? 7 for the tools and 2 for the lightbulb

      • You're right! I should Know better than to wait and do scenarios in the middle of the night.

        (Fun though that the error only made the deal better! Normally it means I gotta go back to square one and figure something better out)

    • Coleman19972000

      Glad I saved my $10 ECB's for this week!

    • Bamabobbie

      Thanks Jenny for the delete this coupons on list. I knew your husband could do it but was afraid to ask. You do so much already. Have a Happy New Year and thanks again for all you do.

      • Courtney

        lol I thought i was going crazy because i didnt see what yall were talking about. It doesnt show anything on my list unless i scroll to the left of the coupon thingy. Glad i found it (after I printed my list lol)

      • Coupons777

        I second that! How cool. Really like this list feature. Thanks!

    • Dhogue2

      Just a note your year end ECB are available Jan 1 so you could print them and have them available for your new deals!!

      • guest

        where do you print them at?

        • Mandi

          They come out of the store coupon printer for me. :-)

        • Jennifer

          They will print either on your receipt when you make a purchase or also from the store coupon printer if you want them prior to making your purchase.

          • Michelle

            you can also log onto your cvs account, click on ecb, and print them from your computer.

    • Rebecca D.

      Just a reminder, all the folks with flex spending accounts or health savings accounts need to empty them by today or else you LOSE WHAT YOU DON'T SPEND… (at least with most kinds of plans). I just realized yesterday we had a ton of money to spend on health items by today. I'm scrambling trying to get good deals but also to spend it all. This is a first for me as I normally do my best NOT to spend!

    • Jenn

      I can't find the q for the Nicoderm CQ. Any suggestions on zip codes? I really want to quit and teh deal at CVS is great! Thanks for any help!

    • Jen M

      What size Angel Soft TP is part of the sale, please? I have $1 off of a 12 roll pack.

    • PriscillaRN

      Where is the “delete this coupon” link?

      • Carol

        Once you click on Create List, you can hover over the listed coupon on the list. It will highlight in pink and read “click to delete this coupon”. It will remove any you don't want so you don't print as many pages to your list.

    • Nichols_again

      If I do 5 wisk detergents and use 5 of the $2 q, can I use care bucks from last week as well or do I have to have another item…In other words can I have 5 items and 6 coupons? Walgreens won't let you do that and I wasn't sure about cvs

      • Wendy

        yes you can do this! CVS does not have the crazy coupon policy Walgreens has!

      • Dmllr813

        and I just got a $5/25 coupon in the email that expires on Monday!

      • Lzbacnik

        No, at CVS it doesn't matter on the quantity.

    • Kaseyproffitt

      I can't print the 3 off coupon for huggies….Can anyone help?

      • Mel

        Sorry, can't help with that, but I printed it yesterday and it's for boxed Huggies 52 ct. and larger. So I don't think it would work in this deal anyway. Hope that helps.

      • Jennifer

        I wasn't able to print it either, but if you go to the Huggies website you can print a $2.50 coupon. It's good on any size package. I did this yesterday. Hope this helps!

    • regina

      how does a b1g1 on the dollar nescafe make it free. I see it .50 each.

      • Mel

        The $1 coupon makes it free. I think the wording may have been a little confusing.

      • akellyinva

        It may be possible to use the B1G1 coupon AND the $1 off to get 2 free. Otherwise, the $1 off would make 1 free for sure.

    • Nichols_again

      I hate to do this to you guys but I am still very new to the coupon game. Can someone please look over my scenario and tell me if it looks right? Some items I don't have q's for but I needed them or they gave good rewards.

      • Happy Feet

        #1 go to the coupon data base and look for 2 revlon coupons. the rest looks ok.

        • Nichols_again

          Thanks …I couldn't find the print for the revlon through the link, but I think it's still a good deal.

      • firstbrownie

        Just keep in mind that you may not get all the coupons that are mentioned each week; I rarely get 50% of what the blogs say, simply because of where I live (not many couponers). So, I usually wait to make scenarios until I actually see those coupons in the paper.
        Also, it is nice to have some ECBs for future use to roll into a new deal, so unless you absolutely need those things at the end, I'd wait for a better deal and save the $10 ECB (they don't expire for at least a month).

    • Jilly

      Question –

      If I use the free Excedrin coupons, would my order still receive the $10 in ECB back?

      • Jane

        Yes! :) You are still purchasing the Excedrin products, you are just using the coupon/manufacture's money to pay for them.

    • Kimboone123

      LOVE the delete this coupon tool! you are the BEST Jenny! I thank you and wish you a WONDERFUL 2011!

      • Dave

        huh? – what is the “delete” tool and how does it work?

        • Yuliyaporter

          when you create your shopping list, you can click on the coupon list and it will “delete' the items/coupons you dont need, so y don't have to print the long list :)

    • griffins00

      watch for the CVS q from the kiosk for the CVS brand batteries…I got one of those when I stopped in today and they are almost always B1G1

    • Thesmithsofop

      Where did the Diabetes and You magazine come from? And the CVS magazine called Reinventing Beauty? I haven't seen these at my CVS.

      • firstbrownie

        Diabetes Magazine is at Walgreen's; check by the sugar level moniters or by the pharmacy (waiting room, etc.). My Wags has them in a magazine holder all the time by a pharmacy window.
        As for the Reinventing Beauty Magazine, look with the magazines and you will possibly see it there for $1; my CVS actually has the coupons pulled out and they have them in a pile by the register. If you can't find it, ask the employees; hopefully they can help you!

        • Thesmithsofop

          Thank you!

    • $avin'some$

      Just an FYI- the photo deal (B1G1 photo book) runs through 1/3. I was so relieved to just figure that out since I had not gotten around to doing mine yet and I would hate to waste those coupons! :o)

      • Jennifer

        I did the seal today and gave them my coupoon, my total was still $18.??. I asked if she applied my coupon, she said she did. I paid for them since I couldn't just leave my personal books there. I tried to call CVS but they are closed for the holidays. Do you think I just lost out?

    • KT

      For the first time I got a $5 off $25 purchase via email from CVS. Can someone please explain how this works? Can this be before coupons? Or is it better to do all my transactions at once, use the $5 off and then save the ECB's that I get from my scenerios (vs. splitting into multiple transactions and rolling ECB's) for another shopping trip? Thanks for any advice :)

      • Ginaod2000

        Hi! I always use this coupon when I get it. What you do is buy your items & hand this coupon first. After they scan the coupon than give your manufacturer coupons. I have never had a problem with this. Although I have heard people make comments on here, saying the cashier wouldn't take the coupon because the total was less after the coupons. I don't know, I haven't had this happen & I have always handed the $5/$25 coupon first. I wait for the cashier to scan, than I give my other coupons. Try this. Up to you if you want to use the coupon or just roll the ECB's. CVS ECBs last for like a month so you should be golden doing all in one transaction. This depends on you. Happy New Year!

        • KT

          Great thank you so much for the advice & info! I will give it a try with handing the $5/$25 first!

    • Justine

      What is the little acorn, next to some of the items, for?

      • Paige

        Good priced items to stock up on.

      • Mollieirene

        It maens to stock up on that item because it's a great deal.

    • Casey B.

      Everyone check your e-mail!! I got a $4 off any $20 purchase for CVS!!! YAY!!! This is going to make the Excedrin deal even sweeter!! = )

      • Jen M

        It doesn't say anywhere on there on regular price items only, so it should work. CVS here has been a little picky and has turned me down on those before, even though it doesn't exclude whatever it is I am purchasing.

    • momof3

      I have to tell you all, I think that the Culturelle is an EXCELLENT price as well! Having 3 kids all with digestive issues, this stuff is GOLD!!!!!

    • on the Reach deal it says buy 4 then use 2 B1G1 and 2 $1 coupons isnt' that 6 toothbrushes…

    • niki

    • Alberson18

      Can anyone find the $3 off of Huggies coupon? The link that was listed as printable I don't see it on?

      • Luci

        I found a $3/2 Huggies Snug and Dry manufacturer's coupon on the Target coupon site exp 1/16

    • Alienmom2002

      just came from our local CVS…they turn on the Sunday ad here on Saturday 'coz our local paper does not print on Sunday and the qpons are in the Sat. edition. I noticed lots of Revlon and Physician's Formula makeup at 75% off….and the Christmas will be 75% off beginning Sunday 1/3…and you can print coupons that are $1.00/2 kisses and get 2 bags of Kisses for 86 cents!

    • Alienmom2002

      also…got 5 bottles of Wisk, used 5 -$2 qpons and a $5off/$25 from my email and paid $10.00 then got back $10 ecb! Free detergent!

      • SMC

        HOW do you find 5 of the same q's?? I wanted to buy 5 bottles of wisk using the same -2q's, but between me, mom and a friend , I can only come up with three. I've seen this a lot using multiples of the same q. What's the trick, or should i say skill required :) ? Thanks

        • Kristenray11

          We buy multiple papers (usually 6-10) each Sunday morning. That way you have plenty of coupons. We also order from wholecouponinserts dot com. You can look at the insert preview to see what will be in the inserts that week (if it's something you really want or need) so you know how many to buy.

          • SMC

            Thanks Kristenray. I'm gnna head out and buy one more paer to get my wisk. smile. Happy New Year.

            • Brandy

              I go to the Dollar Tree to get extra papers if I need them. That way they're only a $1.00 a piece instead of over $2. Usually, I don't get extra papers besides the one we have delivered and two family members' papers…but sometimes when a deal like this Whisk deal comes along, then I'll get extra.

    • momof2

      New to couponing. Wanted to know if the 75cent off coupon for Palmolive can be used on the sale at CVS for 88cents? That would make them 13 cents each right? Just wondering since I hadn't seen anyone else post anything about it: )

      • Proudlyamom

        yes, should work just perfect as long as still valid!!

      • momof2

        Thanks. They don't expire until 1/22/11 so I guess I'll be stocking up.

        • Meli

          just make sure about the size the .88 cents is for the 10 oz and i think the coupon is for 20 oz + if doesn't say nothing about size should be OK

      • Amyandkalebogles

        Yes you can do this. I am new to couponing and I started off with dish washing liquid, I have accumulated several for almost nothing.

    • Ivajean

      Hi, I received the email for a CVS coupon $5 off of $25. I printed out two of them. Will I be able to use them on seperate transactions or does the CVS card track the emailed coupon, and thus you can only use it once?

      • Amy T

        They track it by card so you can only use it once.

      • mommyq

        I have always made multiple copies of my CVS emailed coupons. Just printed 3 of my 5off25. I've never had any problems.

    • Linda

      I need a little help. Some of the coupons I print don't come out. I just get a little picture of the product and nothing else. This happened on the Fruit2Day and the EXTRA laundry soap. What am I doing wrong? Thanks, Linda

      • Rbarp2

        The same thing happens to me, it's very frustrating. I think that only happens with the Smart Source coupons. Some people have said to logout and try and go under another web browser, but that doesnt' work for me either.

      • Melissa

        This used to happen whenever I tried to print a Smart Source Q. My computer eventually uploaded some Java updates and now I get the full Q–try checking the status of your Java software.

    • michelle

      The revlon beauty tools coupon is gone…how do you know which coupons to print so you don't use your ink? by the time you go to get them, they are gone and I don't want to waste ink.

      • Melissa

        I check the ads a week ahead and print coupons I am going to use because once they are up on this site they seem to reach there limits pretty fast.

    • ash

      the glade coupons in the september all you magazine expired dec 31st. i've not checked the woman's day yet….

      • anon

        They don't expire untill December 2011

    • Rdukesrn

      I thought to get the 10.00 in ECB's your total had to be 25.00 after the coupons??

    • Mirandacollins1

      I thought you werent able to use competitor's coupons like Target at CVS. I have two $1 off Revlon coupons from a magazine but because they wont scan like normal manufacturer's coupons, I'm afraid they wont work. Has anyone tried using Target couopns before?

      • toni

        Some target coupons are manufacturer and some are target, you don't know until you print them. You can tell once they are printed, of course. And, no, CVS does not accept competitor coupons.

        • Casey B.

          Our CVS in Athens, AL accepts competitor coupons!! That is why I LOVE my CVS!! =)

      • Tjmj9801

        I couldn't even find the Revlon coupon in the Target link. :(

        • Dianne L

          I think the limit has been reached, and the coupon has been taken off target's site.

      • Anonymous

        These particular coupons were manufacture coupons found on Target’s website. I’m not sure about your magazine qs though…if they say manufacture coupon on them then they can be used.

    • Coolkdg

      I found 2 B1G1 Special K coupons in my binder. Will make it $2.66 for 4 boxes of cereal. They don't expire until the end of January.

    • I just got a coupon for $4 off a $20 purchase that came in my email today… it expires 1/3 so check your email and use it fast!

      • Kim

        where can u get the $4off a $20 purchase? tnx

        • Casey B.

          I recieved my $4 off $20 in an email from CVS also.

      • yup got mine the other day, and just did the wisk deal.. So I came out really good.. :)

      • Ckfourth

        I got $5 off $25. Thanks Sophi!!

        • Cwalkden

          Thanks for the reminder, came out with 5 free Wisk.

          • we didn't get the whisk coupon in our paper… i was really wanting to do the $4 off $20 and the coupons but no such luck i think

    • Tttimmons

      $3 off Huggies Snug & Dry diapers is not useable from the “printable” link above. It takes you to another site, but there isn't a coupon of any kind for Huggies on there.

      • Luci

        I got a $3/2 Huggies Snug and Dry manufacturer's coupon from the Target coupon site.exp 1/16

    • keb2009

      is it me or is the $3 off huggies not there?

    • Me

      I live in Atl. Has anybody found the risk coupon in the AJC? I don't see it in the red plums.

      • Amyinatlanta

        I did not get it in my AJC either.

      • Dianne L

        It's in the insert with Beyonce on the front. It's on the next to last page.

    • IS ANYONE ELSE having a problem with the green tag thing. I have used mine 3 times now and it still shows that I only used it once… Whats up with that? I'm going to start saving my receipts so I can prove I'm using it…

      • Lori

        I have had some cashiers tell me they scanned it when they didn't, just because they didn't like me couponing….

      • Cwalkden

        It takes 4 scans to get one “use” and your $1 ECB.

      • Tfrost99

        Also, I believe you can only scan it for credit once per day. So, if you do multiple transactions in a day it will only give you credit for one that day.

      • Caroline

        It doesn't work for more than one transaction at the same store but if you go to a different store the same day, it will work. I've gone to all three in my area looking for different sale items and it worked at each one on the first transaction.

      • firstbrownie

        Me…..I received my $1 ECB several days ago, but when I went in yesterday to by a paper (only transaction), it still said I had four more before I earned the extra buck; I'm going to watch it when I go back tonight or tomorrow!

    • Puresmood

      the printable for the Disney Multivitamin directs you to target.com, but there is no printable there for it…or am I looking in the wrong place?

    • Melissa

      There was a 2/2 palmolive coupon in my paper and they are only .88 this week.

      • guest

        The $2/2 was for 20 oz or larger. The one in the CVS ad was for 10 oz.

        • Coupon Bubba

          Strange, though, that the CVS ad indicates that there are “coupons in Sunday's paper” when the sizes are different for the coupon and the advertised product.

          • Caity

            There's another coupon for a smaller size… i think its 50 cents off one

            • Nicara


    • Teaguewoman

      Just FYI, Excedrin PM 20 ct. is on sale for $2.50 at Bloom and HT until Tuesday. You will get it free plus save on the tax, since the original amount is less than at CVS this week. Also, this may have been mentioned, but there is tearpad for a $2.50q Excedrin PM 20 ct. at Rite Aid. I believe is was on one of the medicine aisles. Not trying to discourage you from going to CVS. I love CVS and have saved tons of money going there this past year!

    • Homeofmurp

      Don't forget on the Excedrin to use your kiosk coupons if you have them. I keep getting coupons $3 off $15 Healthcare purchase. I use these for vitamins as well as pain reliever, etc.

    • mightymousemom

      I am loving CVS this morning! I found a buy 2 get 1 Boost coupon that printed off for me at the CVS Kiosk a few days/weeks ago (expires 1/2/2010 if you have it, so go today!). The coupon states for up to a $9.99 value. So went this AM and purchased three Boost 6 packs on sale for $5.99, used two $3.00 off Q's in todays paper (you may be able to use a third manf Q for another $3.00 off or the $1.50/1) plus the CVS Q instantly rung up for $9.99 off, so $1.98 OOP then received a $2.00 off ECB. If you use a third Boost Manf Q, you may have a MM (I had one and didn't use it, should have tried). I love love the vanilla shakes for my kids in the morning on the way to school……

    • Eliden05

      No Wisk coupon in The Commercial Appeal (Memphis, TN)

    • WynetteC

      It's a Beautiful Sunday!! Thanks for the list Jenny.

      Curious on something.. if I use the free Excedrin coupon on one of the Excedrins thjat will make the $20 total, does the coupon negate the amount being applied to the $20? By that what I am asking is the coupon going to cause the computer to see the free Excedrin as an item I am not even buying. And so the Extra Care bucks wouldn't print out because that would make me fall below the $20 minimum. I am hoping someone has already tried this or understands exactly what I am asking. It sounds confusing just to type this up, lol.

      • Courtney

        it still works with the free coupons, I used 2 today with the transaction and still got my ecbs

        • Tfrost99

          Yeah! I had the same question, so thank you for responding!

    • Dmllr813

      A) Jackson, MS did not recieve the Wisk coupon ;-(

      B) Assorted 2 L Pepsi products are on sale for .88 cents this week.
      I found peel offs on many of them for .25 cents off. That makes them .68 cents each! I think this is a great price for 2 L drinks!
      Most of the peel offs were on Dr. Pepper and Diet Dr. Pepper.

    • I just got back from our local CVS, and found that I could do the revlon ECB deal with a ton of make up marked down 75% off!! I paid $1.12 for a four pk eyeshadow and $2.14 for a really nice mascara – and got the $7 ecb!! I was also SHOCKED that there were any toothbrushes left, and there were a ton. I usually get to CVS the morning the sale starts and every single sale item is already sold out, so today really made me smile :)

      • Courtney

        i tried to do the revlon deal with the ecb on the marked down makeup but didnt get $7 ecb, cashier said the markdown was with no other offer thing.

      • Michelle

        I bought a pair of clippers and a mascara at 75% off but the machine did not issue the ECB's. The manager said it shouldn't be part of the deal, but I told him it was sitting right on the shelf where the Revlon deal was posted, so he honored it and gave me the ECB;s manually, but he was not happy about it and stormed back to the Revlon section to rip all the clearance stuff off the shelf. It made me feel guilty, but I don't think that is my fault. He also said I didn't even spend a total of $7 to warrant getting the ECB's, but I guess he failed to realized that the 2 of the nail clippers for $3.19 wouldn't have reached $7 either. I love the deals, but this is crazy.

        • I think mine worked because I shop at an out of the way CVS – they barely ever have anyone in the store when I drive by, and they are the only one I have found that isn't out of the sale items the night BEFORE they go on sale! The register didn't print out any of my ecb, so the mgr just forced it but was happy as could be, all smiles to me!

    • Sybilnelson

      I can't find the Boost coupon in my SS. Is it regional?

      • Kristy

        I had it in mine. Macon ga. I am not going to use them. Would u like me to mail them to you?

    • mominsc

      My CVS trip today consisted of:

      (5) Wisk @ $5 each – Used (5) $2 off coupons
      (2) Revlon Clippers @ $3.29 each
      (2) Cascade @ $2.99 each – Used (2) $1 off coupons

      Total OOP $10.20. Received $10 ECB

      • savvy

        where did you find the $1 for Cascade

        • mominsc

          The $110 P&G Everyday Savings booklet (rebate from this past fall).

    • no Wisk coupon in Wilmington, NC :-( I need laundry detergent too!

      • Kristy

        I need detergent too but no $2 coupons for me either in macon ga :(.

    • Kellyleighann

      I live in Alabama…why am I not finding the wisk coupon in the Birmingham News?

      • Brandy

        I'm in B'ham too and I found it in one of the Red Plum inserts with Beyonce on the front, the next to last page. There is a picture of a wisk bottle right beside the coupon. The bottle is red.

        • Bamasaver

          I'm in Oxford & bought a B'ham News–had only one RP insert & it's not the one w/ Beyonce on front.

    • Saraperez

      I just went to cvs and they said they could only take one coupon for the wisk that 3 more have tried it and the computer beeps will not take it,

      • Brandy

        I bought 5 a little bit ago and it didn't beep at all. Not sure what happened at your store's register.

      • Melanieplynch

        Do you have another CVS you could try? The computer at mine beeps sometimes too when I try to use more than one of a particular coupon but the cashier always forces it through. Another great thing about CVS is that you don't have to purchase all 5 Wisks in one transaction. Because you have your CVS card, it keeps track of what you've bought and how many more you need to buy to get the deal. So you may have to buy them each in a separate transaction, which is a pain, but when you finally do buy that 5th Wisk, your ECBs should print out.

      • Ljenk6

        i had same problem??

    • Amy J.

      I was able to use a $4 q for Boost printed at the kiosk (got it about a week ago) plus my manuf $3 q for the Boost 6pk today at CVS…..worked out well b/c i bought a couple of marked down Christmas items and did the Reach deal…..@$4 oop for all and i got back $3 quarterly ECB + $6 ECB :-)

    • terry

      where do you get the $2.00 wisk coupons

      • savvy

        it was in my RP from today's paper

      • Baileyt1

        I can't find the coupons in my paper either!

        • Mango_cream_pie

          me too…i'm from tampa! :-(

    • Suzanne K.

      My Xtra coupon printed in Spanish…..anyone know if the stores will still take it??

      • Melanieplynch

        Spanish-speaking shoppers use coupons too. I can't imagine they wouldn't!

      • I have used Spanish-written coupons at Publix.

    • Aya_nz

      Had a great time shopping at CVS today. I got 2 Reach floss, 2 Reach toothbrushes, 4 boxes Special K cereal, 2 boxes South Beach cereal bars, 1 box Kudos bars, 1 box Nut-trition Bars, 2 Revlon nail clippers, 2 Tasters Choice coffee 6 pk's. Used $18.24 in manu coupns, $4 off $20 CVS coupon and $19.74 in ECB's…total out of pocket $1.24 :) Came out with $14.50 ECB for next time.

      Can anyone who was able to find the Reach B1G1 q's, PLEASE tell me what newspaper you found them in? I live in Greenville, SC and wasn't able to find.
      Thanks and Happy New Year

      • Kristen

        I got mine from the Charlotte Observer – you can still order the inserts online from several places and have them arrive before the sale is over.

        • SMC

          Thank you Kristen. I'm gonna go and check out those whole coupon insert website now.

        • Happy Feet

          where do you order inserts from? Thanks!

      • I have both the Greenville News & the Charlotte Observer. It was not in the Greenville News.

        • SMC

          Thanks Sue. Maybe I need to move to Charlotte, lol

    • Jruckercoupon

      Don't forget to swipe your card at the red box. I went in today to get five bottles of Wisk on sell 2/$10–when you buy $25 worth, you get $10 in ECB back. When I swiped my card at the red box on the way in, I got $9 in ECB based on my spending at CVS last quarter! I took home my 5 bottles of Wisk for $7.12 with tax and had a $10 ECB for my next trip to CVS!

      • Jruckercoupon

        By the way, I had five $2 coupons for the Wisk from the Red Plum insert today.

    • Caity

      FYI- for people wanting to do the Excedrin ECB deal who, like me, didn't get the 2.50 coupon in their paper- my Walgreens had a tearpad with them :-) Made my day b/c I got my free coupon in the mail and will be able to make that into a MM now!

      • Jen

        Thanks! Found them in my Walgreens as well and will be able to go get some Excedrin!

    • Danieldawn

      Has anyone else had problems getting the wisk coupons to print?

      • I can't even get them to show up on the computer— one says there is none available for the campaign, and the other gives me an error page. Plus my redplum didn't have the $2 off coupon… so frustrating!

        • Angela

          anytime you need coupons check out http://www.mycouponhunter.com she has a huge stock of most anything you need and lots of others she doesn’t post, she lives in tarpon spring, florida and she is great at her business!!!!

    • Toifrogs

      I'm new to couponing and today was my best deal yet! I love CVS now that I've finally figured it out!!! Thanks for the help.
      Here's what I got:
      started with $8.50 in ECB that printed at the red box
      4 Excedrin
      1 Tums
      2 Listerine with free flossers attached
      9 boxes kleenex
      1 Edge shaving cream
      1 Goodnites pull ups
      4 South Beach bars
      oop= approx. $5
      left with 10 ECB!!!!!
      So basically, I figure that I left there $3.50 poorer than I entered, the price of tax, but with a whole lot of useful stuff. CVS rocks!!!!

    • Another Kim

      I always get confused with how the B1G1 coupons work. If I buy 4 Reach toothbrushes/flosses, can I use 4 of the B1G1 coupons to get them all free? Is it possible to use 3 of those coupons and combine them with a $2 or $1 off one to get a good deal? Thanks!

      • No, you can not get 4 free with 4 coupons. You have to buy one, unless the store also has the item B1G1, in order to use the coupon. You can use 2 of the B1G1 coupons and two $1 or $2 off coupons. However, some stores will not allow the X/XX coupons. Mine does.

        • Another Kim

          Thanks. Now I just have to find my missing ECBs!

          • I hope that you found your missing ECB.s

    • NolaGirl

      Ho do I get 2 RP coupons for the Reach toothbrushes?

      • Kcrewfive

        You have to buy more than one paper.

        • Nikkicoupon2011

          I didn't see the Reach Toothbrush coupon in the RP. Has anyone had luck with that?

    • Sheri

      Cultrurelle Probiotic coupon expired on 12.31.10. :(

        My CVS stll took it

      • AuntSissy

        That happened to me yesterday but went back to site today and printed 2 that expire on 3/31/11

    • Ywardlaw

      The Revlon coupon link is opening Target coupons, but I haven't been able to find the Revlon coupon. Is there a different zip?

      • firstbrownie

        I believe the limit has been reached (at least it was on Thursday).

    • Shannon

      whew! Just came back from a SIX transaction trip to CVS – my biggest ever. Total Out of Pocket $64.95 but that will come down to $39.95 after I submit the Prilosec rebate for $25. I earned and used a total of $50.50 in ECB during my transactions.
      (4) Excedrin (2 freebies)
      (1) GE light bulb
      (2) 42 ct Priolosec
      (5) Loreal Everpure shampoo/conditioners – all of which had a little travel size attached – bonus!
      (4) 2 packs of Reach toothbrushes
      (1) Palmolive
      (1) Cascade (forgot to take a coupon for this with me – ugh!!)
      (1) Ferrer Rocher (not on sale and no coupon – gift for hubby's bday which was yesterday!!)

    • Rainbowtp

      Saw the info about the $25.00 Mastercard offer when you buy the Prilosec in 1 transaction… I had already purchased 2 separately and took them back for a refund to be able to pay in one transaction. I am new at this couponing thing but I think someone was smiling on me big time today! :0). The girl ripped my 7.00 ECB certificate from the previous purchase and when she re-rang them, she let me use it to take the amount off the combined purchase….then I got a $14.00 ECB certificate for the new purchase. I can't remember if I got 7.00 off when I made the first purchase. By the time all is said and done, I got my Prilosec for FREE. Love the ladies at my CVS. They will always help you figure out the angle to save the most money.

    • JT

      anyone find the $3.00 off Boost in SS 1/2/11 coupons? Lex SC area? I got to SS inserts but don't see any coups for Boost.

      Also, does CVS take competitor coups?

      • guest

        I have 4 of those you’re welcome to have. Email me at qponing09(at)yahoo(dot).com. I could mail them to you. Thanks.

    • Jruth52

      Jenny, I’ve noticed that sometimes you print that a coupon is available at Target.com. Does CVS really accept these? I always thought they were to be used exclusively at Target.

      • juju

        I would love to know the answer to this as well. I printed some coupons and they show Target. Can they be used at CVS?

        • Bamasaver

          Target.com always has lots of coupons. Some are store (Target) & some are manufacturer. Of course, their store ones are good only @ Target, but you can print manuf. coupons from their site to use elsewhere. The catch is…you can’t tell which is which until you print it. But Jenny is probably citing the ones that are manuf.

    • JT

      sorry for the typo, that should be two SS inserts

    • Margaret

      I went to the smart source site to clip a Filippo Berio Olive Oil Q and when I went back in to clip it again I did get another one, however, after looking at it, they both have the same bar code. I always thought that each Q had to have different barcodes, am I wrong in thinking this, or are these two Q's counterfeit? Each one that I have gotten before has always had different numbers in each place.

      • Bar codes are the same. However, they usually have different PIN numbers. Look in the upper right corner.

        • Margaret

          Thanks so much. I see what you are saying. That helps.

    • Karen

      The magic box is printing 1.50/2 on the Colgate toothpaste–brings the price down to .24 cents. Almost as good as free!

    • Jenny

      Jenny, Thanks for this site. I'm excited to begin using some of these principles and see some big savings! I went to CVS today and bought several excedrin products (which I use, with lots of coupons, to earn the $10 in ECB. My question is what is it that I should watch for to buy next so that I get more ECB to print out? Is that how you maximize the ECB? Thanks! Jenny S.

      • Erin

        mine printed $1.00 off one

      • Natalie

        Yes! Exactly. If you have purchased everything you want this week, hold onto your extra bucks until next week when the new ad starts. Choose things from next week's ad that will earn your more extra bucks…and keep rolling them over!

    • cat

      Today, the magic box gave me a FREE coupon for 2 oz Essence of Beauty hand sanitizer (they come in “flavors” like citrus, pomegranate, etc…pretty similar to the ones from Bath and Body Works).

      • Beatycoupons

        Where did you find them in the store? I looked everywhere and didn't see them.

        • wendy r

          I found mine on an endcap near the cosmetics with nothing but essence of beauty products like lotion and body wash

        • cat

          I went to a brand new CVS – they were in a display with other EOB stuff fairly near the front door (I think there's perfume and stuff like that nearby).

    • Mccrited

      The kiosk printed me a $1 off purchase coupon today. Check your kiosk this week for this coupon! I bought 5 Wisks at $25, used 5 $2 off coupons rolled $3 dollar ECB's and the $1 from kiosk, so I paid $12.38 but got back $10 ECB's.

      • Frostette3

        I bought 5 Wisks @ $25, used 5 $2 off coupons, used $5/$25 and rolled $10 ECB's. Paid .70 and received $10 ECB's back…

    • JP

      I went into CVS earlier today, scanned my card and got a q for $2 off Precise by Tylenol. When I went over to see if they had any in stock, there was a Mfg q tearpad for $2 off. They are on sale for $5.99. So got $4 off and $1 ECB basically getting it for $.99.

    • Caroline

      Great trip to CVS today! I NEEDED cereal so I got 4 boxes of Special K Red Berries and 4 boxes of Planter Nut-rition bars. I used my $4/$20 q, 2 $1/2 Kellogg's q, 1 $1 and 3 $.75 Planters q. Then minus $13 ECB from my raincheck Oral B toothbrush deal and the extra $1 ECB that printed at the kiosk. My grand total was $.22! Plus now I have $8 ECB for next time! I love CVS!

    • Lisamarieonssi

      I used 1 – .50 off & 3 – 3.00 off 3 Glade coupons and got 10 bottle of glades for 10.00 minus 9.50 plus got the 3.00 ECB back !! :)
      + tax of course

      • Mistydawnwall

        What q's did you use?

    • Jennifer

      Frustrated at CVS. I got my wisk deal, but when I tried to do the two revlon it didn't print rr??? has anyone had troube w/deals not printing? how do you deal w/it. the revlon products were clearanced, but that shouldn't have made a difference. They still rang up as revlon products.

      • Sweety Pie32

        Take your receipt back to the store. Show them the ad that says you receive 7ECB's for ANY Revlon product. They will print out the ECB's for you.

    • Hispreacher

      I got the Viativ today. It was Buy one get one free, but they would only let me use 1 of my 2 dollar off coupons. I thought I could use two coupons. What is there policy on B1G1.

      • tygirl13

        Check the “Almost Official” policy in the upper right hand corner. You can also email CVS re: coupon policy and they will send you a similar email. I had them send one to me and I keep it in my binder. I like to get my coupon policies from the store directly so that I am sure that it is from them. I would hate to go to a store and try to say “but the blog said so”, it is much more convicing if you have your own copy straight from the source.

    • Ditos

      I bought two Revlon eye shadow on 75% clearance. The ECB's didn't print so I showed the receipt and the ad to the cashier and she fixed it for me. Was a nice moneymaker for me.

      • Fallaya

        Same thing happened to me. I got two Revlon blushes for only $1.37 each (75% off)!! So I paid $2.74 and received $7 in ECB's. The cashier had to give me the ECB's manually too.

        • Ivajean

          Where can you order inserts from? Thanks.

      • Haley554

        This also happened to me yesterday when I bought two clearance nail polishes for $1.45 each, but the cashier would not give me the ECB:( I had to buy two beauty tools, a nail clipper and a nail file and then the 7 ECB printed.

      • Rachel

        I called corporate about the ECB not printing for clearance items. The agent said they usually don't print for promotional items (although I have never experienced that before) and said she would check into it for me. There were yellow hanging tags all over the Revlon display – even for the items that were on clearance so I would have thought the ECBs would print.

      • Amy T

        I bought a nail polish and eye shadow yesterday and my receipt says I have one item towards the $7 ECB and I still need one. I thought it would be worth going back and getting more nail polish and eye shadow to see if I could get the ECB. Even after buying 4 items, it would still be a money maker.

    • Hispreacher

      AT CVS Can you use two coupons on a buy one get one free

      • wendy r

        Yes one q for each product

    • Karen

      Yesterday i got a postcard from cvs with a coupon for a try me for FREE Schick Hydro 5 or 3 razor register your card online

      • I got the Same Coupon, I hope it goes on sale with ECBs. Whoo hoo…

        • Mary

          I got mine too, didnt think about waiting to see if it would go on sale with ECBs.. but either way cool beans. BTW, at my store they had put them behind the counter, for pple who get the postcard.

    • Thiamaria

      Had an awesome shop today! I started off w/o any ECBs
      Tran 1
      2 Excedrin PM
      1 Excedrin Migraine
      1 Excedrin Extra strength
      2- $2.50 Excedrin PM (from tearpad currently @ Walgreens)
      1 Free Excedrin Migraine Q
      1 Free Excedrin Extra Strength
      OOP: 6.38 + 10 ECB

      Tran 2
      2 Prilosec OTC 42ct
      2-$3 Prilosec Q
      $10 ECB

      OOP: $37.48 + 14 ECB

      This was fantastic for the Prilosec as I will be sending in for the $25 rebate. All in all I will have paid $18.86 OOP (after Rebate) & have $14 ECB. Which means- I only paid 4.86 for Everything!

      I would have done the toothbrush scenario before these 2, except that they only had 3 of the “whitening” ones.

    • momto2boys

      I am terrible at math so I need help…how do I calculate my savings in percentages? I would like to track my spending this year and would like to have a percentage to go along with it…can someone help me??

      • Thiamaria

        Total Saved/ (Out of Pocket + Total Saved) then multiply by 100 for it to be in %

        Example: You paid 3. You saved 6. so: 6/(3+6) * 100= 66% savings. HTH.

        Jenny recently had a post with a link for an excel sheet that did all of that for you….check it out!

    • redteapot

      Does anyone know where I could get the Diabetes and You magazine that the Bayer Glucose monitor coupon is in?

      • firstbrownie

        Walgreens…check in the pharmacy (mine have them in a magazine holder) or by the moniters themselves.

    • Mary

      I am new at couponing. Is .69 good for small canister of oatmeal (at CVS)?

      • Mary

        anyone out there….???? LOL :-)

        • Amy

          Free at Dollar General with the dollar coupon and the 5 pack dollar size.

      • Haleemay

        There's not much that's a good deal at CVS unless it's free, nearly free, or better than free. I say this because according to Consumer Reports magazine CVS is the highest priced drugstore chain among the “Big 3”- CVS, Rite Aid, & Walgreens. In that order, by the way. I DO like CVS, but it's probably a good bet to stick with a place like Wal Mart if you're not sure price-wise on an item at CVS>

      • Megortiz63

        This past week the 18 oz size was .27 at Publix if you had the $1/1 coupon, or free + with the $1/1 Target coupon. I got 4, used all the coupons and is was a .92 MM.

    • Jennifer

      I called and they are going to add my $7 ecb but I do have to wait 48hours. So I bought 5 Wisk on sale for $5 each. 5/$2 coupons so 17.25 OOP and $10ECB. next order 2 Listerine at $5 each and 1 Loreal Expertice Hair color for $6. After $2 coupons on each item and my $10 ECB on the last purchase I only paid $1.44. I also got Revlon deal and paid $6.02. So all together I spent $24.71 and have $12.00 ECB. LOVE IT!

    • Ginaod2000

      If you want to do a makeup deal, stay away from the clearanced makeup at CVS. I did the $15 get 5ECB on loreal last week. No ECB's printed. I asked the manager why I didn't get those. He said it's because I purchased clearance makeup. The total was over $15, so I wasn't real happy. I read the entire sale flyer, all the small print. No where is that stated. It says all loreal makeup. I called the customer service for ECB's. They told me the same thing. I told them that it's not stated in thier ad. She appoligized, but that was it. So I will no longer be shopping CVS. I will stick with Rite Aid. I didn't even need the makeup was just trying to get the ECB's. Although the makeup is nice & I will use it later :0) Just annoying is all.

      • firstbrownie

        Return the make-up…they usually have no problem with that!!!! I've done that to test some things to see if the ECB would print off and if they didn't, I just got a refund.

      • Mdavis174

        It's on the signage for the clearance event, not in the ad. If you look on the large black signs that say price cuts-Get it Before it's Gone, it specifically excludes the clearance items from any other advertised deals. Some managers and customer service know the items are not included, but can't always explain the why properly.

      • Jenifer1999

        I also bought clearance makeup today to get ECBs on the Revlon deal & it didn't print the ECBs. I pointed it out to the guy and he said basically the same thing, that the ECBs won't work on clearance items. I asked him to show me where it stated clearance was excluded & he instead just printed me out the ECBs. I won't try that again since it doesn't work normally, but I had read so many people say they've done deals that way so I tried. If he hadn't printed the ECB for me manually I would have returned the make-up. I don't want to cheat the system, but they really should exclude clearance merchandise specifically in their sale ads, imo.

      • Lorelei207

        Ok i just got back from CVS and the same thing happened to me. I had never heard of this before and was confused bc it stated “any revlon” and never mentioned clearance. I got 2 eye shadows for $1.30 something each and was expecting to get the $7 ecb and didn't. i asked the girl and she said bc spent less than the amount of the ECB, which i knew was garbage due to my normal couponing at CVS. Told her that, then she said prob bc it was clearance. I had honestly never seen exclusions to clearance, but she gave the ecbs to me anyways bc it says “any revlon.” I feel sorta bad now hearing all these stories, but the exclusions should be made known or t least have the clearance make-up in a different section without the “buy2 revlon get$7 ecb” sign under it for the same product.

    • Anginlynzi

      Check the MAKEUP sections!!!! At my CVS they are clearancing 50% – 75% off a TON of Makeup to make room for the Spring colors, grab the coupons and SCORE!!!!

    • This week I spent $3.93 and saved $38.95! The details are in my latest blog post. I am new to couponing, so this is my best CVS trip yet!

    • MustangLadyred

      I never knew that you could delete off the coupon matches when you print until today. Thank you for making that an option…..it will definately save on printer ink!!!

    • Kim- Knox, TN

      Shopping with your list & my Qs today, I spent $61.84 & rec'd $27 in extrabucks. Full retail would have been $110.10. So, tomorrow, I will continue to stock up & use the extrabucks I earned tod to get more extrabucks on the items I didn't buy today. YAY! I'm new to couponing like this & am happy I started! Thanks for all the tips!

      • Ashley

        the longer you do it, the less you pay out of pocket. You just keep getting better and better as you go and its so fun! good job on your trip :) :)

    • Has anyone else had an issue with ECB not working with your card? I have been using the same card, but these were ECB that expired 12/26 (but they always push expired ones through). She scanned my card and the computer said the ECB didn't belong to that card??? I was wondering if it was a new year thing, because the last digits on my coupons were short the number on my card.

      • tygirl13

        I have had that happen to me a couple of times. I just pointed out that the numbers were the same except for the last number (once I figured out what had happened). They pushed it through.

    • Mking

      Is this typical? Had the manager at a CVS make me stand in the checkout line while she called, I assume Excedrin, to make sure that my free Excedrin coupons were legitimate, even though, they had come through the mail printed on special paper. Added an extra ten to fifteen minutes to my trip to what I had hoped was a five minute shopping trip.

      • I used those coupons Monday with no problem. I have been asked a few times where I got a particular coupon, but not because they doubted it, but because they wanted them, too. I believe that this manager's behavior was uncalled for. I would advise you to keep the letter intact (don't clip the coupon) and take the whole thing in with you.

      • KK

        I was worried about that at Harris Teeter, I didnt think they would take a free printable coupon for anything. I left it in the letter just like I got it and showed it to the manager at the front before I even went and got it just to make sure. They had no problems taking it!

        • WynetteC

          That's smart advice! I like that and I will borrow your idea next time I get one of those coupons for the “just in case” scenario.

    • lizzyd

      Anyone notice that the $4 of $20's aren't printing very frequently when you scan your card, or is it just me? Seemed like in the summer, every time I walked in one of those q's would print :(

      • Freedomspradley1

        I was getting them very regularly back in the summer but they stopped and I haven't seen them since. :-(

      • Donna

        I was thinking the same thing. Over the summer and fall I basically got one every week. I haven't had one in a while. :>(

      • lizzyd

        Ok thanks I thought it was just me!

      • I believe that once you've been shopping regularly for a while, you stop getting them. I haven't gotten one in almost a year, and I shop every week.

    • Kkrobertson

      No Wisk coupons in my coupon inserts… :( I buy Atlanta Journal… Anyone else?

      • momof3inATL

        I had the wisk q in the AJC. Home delivery. To my knowledge there are two distributions of the AJC coupons/inserts. IDK how they are determined but believe that the instore qs often vary.

      • couponqueenatlanta

        I had them in all my papers that i bought at Rite Aid – double pack AJC.

      • Dianne L

        It is on the next to last page (inside of back cover) in the Red Plum with Beyonce on the front.

      • Imousework

        No Wisk coupons for me neither. I have four of the Beyonce Red Plum, I've looked and looked and no Wisk.

    • tarheelpat

      Has anyone tried buying the $2.99 nail clippers and nail files for the Revlon deal? The ad says “all,” but my store didn't have yellow tags on the really cheap beauty tools.

      • Kim- Knox, TN

        My store had the yellow tags on the clippers, so I bought 2 @ $2.99 for the $7 ECB no prob.

      • Mandi

        I did the nail clippers on mine and my sister did the nail file. No problems!

      • I bought one of each at 2.99 each. Got $7 ECB!

      • Mary

        When I went into my CVS yesterday I couldnt find the cheaper ones either, I then walked to the end of the isle and they were by the Store brand stuff, not where the Revlon signs. I got the $2.99 nail clippers & the $3.99 nail file.

      • Lzbacnik

        Yes, I did a couple of days ago and it did work.

    • Freedomspradley1

      Had awesome shopping day Sunday and I'm looking forward to the deals starting 1/9! Things have been slow the last month or so so it's nice to get back in full swing at CVS. I got all this for a mere $15 bucks total OOP (including tax): 2 Frosted Flakes, 1 Raisin Bran Crunch, 2 Revlon Nail Clippers, 2 Wisk, 1 Angel Soft 24 roll, 1 Sparkle 8 roll, 1 Excedrin Migraine, 1 Excedrin Extra Strength, 1 Tums, 2 Listerine Zero, and 2 packs Lifesaver gummies to keep the kido quiet. I started with $15 ECB. I now have $7 ECB ($4, $3) and I'm two packs of Excedrin PM away from getting another $10 ECB (shelf was wiped clean). I have -$3.50 and -$2.50 Excedrin PM coupons plus I'll use a $3ecb so I'm another couple bucks away from being done this week. I did split my purchases over 4 transactions.

    • couponqueenatlanta

      If you need eyeliner or lipstick – check out L'Oreal Le Kohl Duo Bronze Brown or any of the endless lipsticks – they are ringing up at $2.87 and use the coupons from 1/2/11 – buy 2 face products save $5. They end up costing .37 each. Not too shabby – when the initial price was close to $12!!! Stock up!

    • A couple days ago I post about having problems with my Green Tag ringing up…. I just want to say that I have used it 3 times on different day at 2 different stores. and it still says I have only used it once…. I'd really like some advice on what to do about this maybe to fix it

      • Ivajean

        Your receipt will probably have a date which mentions the green tag uses up until that date. Mine didn't show up either, but it was logging the use to a certain date.

        • yeah the Date is July of 2011.. I have saved this recent receipt but out of luck on the others. I didn't realize it until this past time… It's a brand new card.. I've notices on some of the things I purchase it does the same thing… Like when it says limit 1, I buy that one get my ecbs and at the bottom it still say I need another to fill the promo, Really weird

          • If it says that you need 1 to fill a promo for an ECB, that usually means that the limit is not actually 1. That is, if it was an ECB that only requires a purchase of 1.

      • First of all, I think that you should always make certain that your receipt shows that it was scanned. If your store is like mine, you can watch for it on the screen where credit/debit cards are swiped. If not, then check your receipt when you get it to make certain that you see it listed as one of the items that was rung up. If you know that it was scanned, but it is not showing on your receipt, then you need to question it immediately. If you still have those receipts from the last few days, check to see if they show where your tag was scanned each time. If it is not showing, then I would say that you probably need a new tag. If it is showing that they were scanned, but your total at the bottom is not increasing, then you already have the “evidence” you need to bring it to the manager's attention. Your card could be defective. One other thing, if you have more than one card, make certain that each of your receipts were from the same card before you approach them with past receipts.

        • Q-Savvy

          My receipt shows the bag tag was scanned. Also, my transactions were at different stores (this counts again if at two different stores) and one on a different day and yet my bag tag credit has not changed. I seen on another site where orther people are having this trouble. I wonder whats up with CVS?

      • Klynn

        I had the same thing happen this week. I know he scanned it but it still said need one to earn reward.

      • Q-Savvy

        I have the same problem. on my receipt it shows that my green bag tag was scanned, but I am not getting credit. This Is the 3rd time I have to credit. I have my receipts and the number of credits is the same for last 3. I think CVS is stopping it or cheating a lot of us out of the bag tag credit lately.

    • Ivajean

      Where do you find the baseball card plastic sleeves that people use for coupon binders? I checked Walmart's school supplies/binders aisle and didn't see them there.

      • Nikiparris

        they are located @ the check-out w/baseball, Pokemon cards, etc:)

      • ChrissyPunkin

        You might like the ones in the photo album area. They have one horizontal pocket and two vertical ones. I organize my coupons by categories, and this works great for me. I use the baseball card sleeves for Rite Aid video values coupons.

      • karen

        wal mart in baseball card section near registers

      • Mary

        I found them at Freds, and Walmart. Sad to note that the ones I bought at Freds was cheaper and of better material…live and learn LOL The one I found at walmart was up at the cash registers, where they usually have the baseball cards, bubble gum, and last minute items.

      • Morgan

        I've bought them at WalMart, Target, AC Moore and Staples. And I must say, Staples store brand are the best BY FAR. They are super durable and never came apart or ripped like some of the others. Just thought I would share.

    • P.L.

      Ivajean, I found mine at Office Max.

    • Ivajean

      Which method do you all prefer? Couponing using the method of saving inserts and dating them or the binder method? I'm trying to decide which route to go….or maybe a combination of the two??

      • ChrissyPunkin

        I finally settled on a combination, because I have so many coupons that I get besides the inserts: printables, ones through the mail, tearpads, peelies (on products I bought), All You and other magazine ones, etc. I use a binder for all of those and for the insert coupons that I know I will want to use. I date the rest of the inserts and leave them in a stack.

      • Mary

        I do a combination of both too. I clipp / print the coupons and place them in the baseball protecters according to 5 different catagories (Food / Drink -1, Cleaning -2, Personal Care -3, Medical -4, Mis -5). I do not use a binder, but an expanding accordian file with 7 dividers. 5 catagories, 5 first slots, then 6th is for my sales flyers etc, 7th is my “to do” stuff, ex clip, sort etc. I also made a database in Excel so I can quickly look to see If I have a coupon for a product at home. I made my Column headings as follows,Column A “blank” , Catagory, I D , Description. Amount, Expires, Notes, # of Q's, Out, # of Qs left.

    • jordansmom

      I had 5 $2 coupons for Wisk and I also had a $5 off if you spend $20. With the $10 ECB I got 5
      Wisks for basically $1 which was the tax! Great deal!

    • CBC99

      I had my best CVS trip to date today! My original total was $123.17 but I only paid $8.23 oop. Thats a 94% savings! I LOVE coupons and ECB!

    • Yay! I went to CVS yesterday with a raincheck for last week's photo book deal. The store that I went to last week did not have the material. I got four books and only paid tax. Great shopping trips this week.

      I’m not sure why my comment from last night hasn’t posted yet. I found $4 off Glade Sense and Spray starter kits and $1.50 off refills on http://www.rightathome.com/Offers/Pages/default.aspx
      This makes the Glade deal awesome!

    • Deb

      http://www.cvs.com/CVSApp/promoContent/promoLandingTemplate.jsp?promoLandingId=1284&WT.mc_id=L_ECBC_Direct to sign your Extra Care card up for the Extra Care Beauty Club. $3 ECB free on your birthday plus lots of other savings over time. And, hey, it’s free!

    • Llf6808

      What if I have (3) $2.50 off coupons and (1) free excedrin coupon?? How will that work with this deal?

      • ChrissyPunkin

        Even better! Your total due should be $3 less than the scenario above. Great money-maker!

    • Jmmjc

      Don't think the deal on the reach tooth brushes will work. The add says 2 pk and both coupons says single pack. This has happen more than once to me, when the fine print is not stated. Like last weeks photo books. I took the time to do 4 books and did not see the fine print that they had to be done at the kiosk in the store. So I ended paying 30.00 out of pocket :( !!!

      • ChrissyPunkin

        I'm so sorry!

      • Megortiz63

        At my CVS, both the 2 pack and the singles were included. I used 4 B1/G1 and 4 $2/1, paid $4 and got $10 ECB's. Great deal!

    • Just checked my email and got a CVS coupon for $4 off $20, good through this Sunday, January 9, 2011. This means that the Prilosec, when combined with the ECB, manufacturer coupons, AND the rebate, will be 50 cents a box!!!

    • Allisonbarry

      just got the viactive w/ the coupon. never had those before, but wanted to try them. thanks!!

    • Ctcjsbag5

      Question….can you use competitor coupons as CVS?

      • Lisa

        I’ve tried, but they are very firm on not accepting them. I even tried the manu. q from a while ago that printed on coupons.com for planters nuts, but it says available at Walgreens so they wouldn’t take it. But some stores might. Our local store is a lil snippy about coupons. I’ve found the manager is the easiest to work with.

      • ChrissyPunkin

        no :-(

      • Tiff715

        it depends on your CVS, so you will have to ask them, some do and some don't

        • Ctcjsbag5

          Thanks! But I still don't understand why list the Target Coupon for the $1.00 off Revlon products under CVS if you cannot use them!

          • ChrissyPunkin

            Some of the Target coupons are actually manufacturers coupons that you can use at other stores. You can't tell which kind they are until you print them out, though, and I can't find the Revlon one.

    • Lisa

      I was in our local CVS last wk and the young guy that rang up my stuff, looked at the stuff I was getting and said “Southern Savers, huh?” I was like, How'd you know? To which he replied “because I'm just that good :)” He also said that there is one lady that “comes in every week and never spends more than 1.45 and thats usually tax.” I'd love to know how she does it, but I'm pretty sure she don't buy pampers lol

    • Allison

      MY very first ECB experience was today. :) I went in and bought two revelon products…nail files 2.99 and nail clippers…2.99 both of which i needed! Used one dollar off coupon and paid 5.24. Getting back 7 ECB put a smile on my face i got it for free!!

    • Astra Dawson

      I am brand new at this. A friend of mine that told me about it, is new at it also, so we are both trying to figure this system out. It seems very confusing to me. Im trying do baby steps and start with CVS. I have a question with the 1st scenerio though, where it has the M beside (5) -$2 wisk coupons. 1) what does the M stand for and 2) how would you get (5) $2 wisk coupons? If anyone can help me, that would be great. And if you have any other tips that would make this process easier, please feel free to share. Thank you so much!! :)

      • ChrissyPunkin

        The first thing you should do is click on “learn to coupon” at the top of this page. To answer your questions, 1) M= manufacturer coupon and S=store coupon. You can use one of each kind on the same product, and 2) you can get 5 coupons by buying 5 newspapers or by buying them from a coupon clipping service.

        Good luck! The best way to learn is like you said, start with baby steps. :-)

      • Rachael

        The M means that it is a manufacturer coupon (good anywhere) vs S for a store coupon which can only be used at that store or other stores that will honor it as a competitor coupon. It's important to know which is which because you can use both a store and a manufacturer coupon on the same item. As for how you get multiple coupons, if it's from a newspaper you can either start buying multiple papers each week (I buy 3 or 4) or you can check and see if anyone you know gets the newspaper and doesn't want their coupons. The online coupons can be printed twice from each computer until their print limit is reached. Hope that helps!

    • ChrissyPunkin

      OK, I've tried to post this twice now and I'm not sure why it's not working. I found coupons for $4 off Glade Sense and Spray starter kits and $1.50 off refills, which makes the Glade deal awesome! Maybe it's the link that's the problem. Just search for Right at Home Johnson and click on special offers.

    • Jen in GA

      OMG!! I clipped and compared all morning and went to CVS on my lunch:
      Playtex: 7.99, $3Ext Bk/(used $1off cpn)
      Huggies: 8.99,$1 EB

      2 Listerines (Didn't have to be List Zero),$5 EB(2 $2 cps used

      Flintstones Vitamins BOGO1/2off,& $2cpn
      Revlon toenail clippers $3.99, $7EB
      Garnier Hairspray sale $3.79, $1cpn used
      Huggies Wipes Sale $5.99
      2 Palmolive Dish $.88 each!
      Tylenol RR $7.99, $1 cpn
      Coricidin HBP $7.49, $2cpn

      then I had a CVS $5 off $30 purchase that came TODAY!
      TOTAL SAVED:$27.56

      I scanned my card and had a $7 EB on my account so I used it with the others ($16EB) used a $1.50 coupon for Pampers and only had to pay $1.15 for a 46count BOX of Pampers! OMGosh!!
      & I have 1EB left!!!

      Sorry so long- I am just really stoked about the savings!!

    • Connergatorman

      Can you use the EB you earn on the purchases on the same purchase? I thought you have to use them the next time you shopped.

      • ChrissyPunkin

        You can use them on your next purchase. So you can do a transaction and get your receipt, tear off the ECBs at the bottom, and use them on the next transaction. If there is a line, I would suggest going to the back of the line and wait your turn for the second transaction, though. The cashiers always appreciate that. :-)

    • NancyMac

    • Kim- Knox, TN

      I did the L'Oreal $10 ECB with $30 purchase today & am pretty happy. Bought $30 in hair & skin care AND found a face power compact 75% off for $3.19!!! I used a $2Q for the compact making the price $1.19!! I also used $7ECB & $5 in other L'Oreal coupons. Total retail before sale $57.94. I spent $21.72 out of pocket & earned $10 ECBs!! So it was like my entire purchase was $11!!! YAY! Now I have $25 left in ECBs to use on the Pepsi deal this Sunday!!!!!

    • Livserge331

      Well… I tried buying two 75% off clearance Revlon mascara, since the signs said all cosmetics and beauty tools; but no extrabucks. Oh well. I would return them, but I used EB to pay, so my total was only $1.88 OOP. In the past I've had trouble returning items when my OOP was less than the item. No big deal, even though I already have free mascara. You win some, you lose some! I did luck out and get a bunch of the Loreal Feel Naturale blushes on clearance and used the recent coupons to bring the price down to $0.69-1.19 each. I have been able to sell these on Ebay for anywhere from $3 to $6 each! Made about $45 last month on them. The soft ivory shade of face makeup sells too.

      • Beck

        You shouldn't have any trouble returning them. I've done this several times. If you use ECBs & coupons, they just give you a refund but you can only get it in the form of a CVS money card (just like a gift card), at least that's what they do at my CVS. I just bought some makeup last week and used ECBs & my out of pocket was just tax, I think. But then I found the makeup cheaper at Wags so I returned the makeup to CVS & they gave me the full amount for the makeup on a CVS money card.

      • Jen

        I too got the clarence Revlon mascara and the ECB didn't print. I went back in and said your as says buy any two Revlon beauty products and get a $7 ECB, I showed them my receipt that I bought 2 Revlon and they printed me an ECB with no problem. My mom also had no problem with them issueing her an ECB when she went back to her CVS.

    • deb

      Went to CVS and used all my free Excedrin coupons and the 3.50 and 1.00 coupons and still got the extra bucks even though it was all free! Love CVS. Oh look for the free box of Excedrin PM taped to the Excedrin Migraine for an extra bonus!!

    • Newnanchic

      I now realize why I do not go to CVS !!! Out of stock on WISK, out of stock on EXCERDIN, out of stock on light bulbs.. No tage on the reach tooth brush and NO ADS in store !! A wasted trip and left not spending a penny !!!

      • firstbrownie

        Get rainchecks!! I get them even if I don't have the coupons, because they never expire! I have a raincheck from last February that I plan on using next week (coupon is going to expire soon…). I have remind myself, that when I go in on a Saturday, probably most of the good sales will be gone!

      • Meg

        Hope you got a Rain Check! They will honor the deal when the items are back in stock.

    • Meg

      Anyone know if you can do the Angel Soft / Wisk deal twice? Often times the ad says LIMIT 1, but your receipt indicates the deal can be done again. BTW: The L'oreal deal can be done several times. I did it twice this week and my receipt indicates I can do it a third.

    • Natbham

      Will the $10 ECB print out even if I use coupons on those items (wisk, etc) and don't spend the full $25?

      • Meg

        ECB's are determined from the price you paid, BEFORE coupons.Buy 5 (use 5 $2 off coupons) and you will get the ECB's back.

    • Ronamy3k

      Does anyone know if CVS is implementing any restrictions where clearance items don't count? I was in the store today and noticed several revlon items were 75% off. I grabbed two items I needed and assumed the $7 ECB would print because it was two revlon cosmetics. The ECB's didn't print… and I asked the cashier and he said it was because those items were on clearance. I told him that it hadn't seemed to matter in the past and he gave me the $7 ECB's but it had me wondering if the rules had changed or was I wrong in my understanding. The $10 ECB's also did not print for the angel soft, sparkle deal either and he had to override that as well. Maybe it was just this store at this particular time…but I was curious if anyone had any thoughts… Thank you!

    • Cindymccarron

      I am new to this… so do you get the ECB money on the same transaction and it is deducted? Or do you save it for the next visit? Thanks
