I know most of you won’t have any meter coupons, if you leave it out in the first transaction the total is still the same you would just have $5 less in profit. In the end you would pay $2.50 per pack of diapers which still isn’t bad!!

      • Oh and this should finish off my needs for the P&G Coupon Booklet!!!!

      • My bad… totally forgot to include the cost OOP for the toothpaste: I would be spending $1.97 per package of diapers… I would blame it on being so late but I actually work the midnight shift… lol.

        • Amy_Q

          Thanks for giving me a giggle in the wee hours of the morning. YOur conversation with yourself cracked me up. LOL I do the same thing!

    • Anonymous

      There’s still a $1.50/2 Frosted Mini-Wheats coupon on coupons.com also. That should make them $1.22/box, right?

    • Debbie33

      How can you get a $3 off $15 coupon? I really need one.

      • kjc

        http://content.riteaid.com/coupon/SCR_quarterly_statement_coupon_20100331.pdf ; FYI go to http://www.iheartriteaid.com and look to the right hand side where it says printable rite aid coupons. this has been posted for weeks. save it to your desktop, and re-print, it’s in a pdf, so it’s fresh each time you use it!

      • gimmemecoupons

        Scan your ECB card at the red box/price scanner in CVS. I usually get a save $3 on $15 each time I scan my card.

        • Debbie33

          I scan mine every day I am in there and I NEVER get a $ of $$ purchase. I only get $1 off cvs cookie and blah blah. :(

          • BeverlyB

            Me too! I only get it off cookies or CVS brand items. I often wonder if the Qs are regional, but I haven't ever gotten anything good. (I'm in Charlotte, NC). Or maybe I'm too new to using a CVS card (3 months)?

            • RuyaTuya

              hey beverly im in charlotte nc as well. Where do you do most of your couponing? does anyone know how to stay signed into the site? i have to log in everytimne i wanna post something

            • wvarner

              Hi RuyaTuya, I am in Charlotte, NC too! I shop at Bi-Lo, Harris Teeter and CVS is my choice for drug stores. I like the ECB program.

              Which site are you having troubling signing into? (sorry to jump in)

            • RuyaTuya

              Hey, Yea I have started shopping at Harris and BiLo as well. Today was my first time at CVS doing couponing, it was okay- i thought ECB could be used just as cash. I was pretty bumbed when they told me I could only use it towards balance before taxes, i have to pay taxes outt my pocket. also If the balance is lets say $3.11 (before taxes) and My ECB is for $3.99 … i dont get anything back- and lose that extra money

            • wvarner

              Yeah you have to gauge it just right.

            • RuyaTuya

              Hey do you know of any coupon clubs in Charlotte? I have so many coupons I dont use and would love to swap! Plus I need tips from pros : )

            • wvarner

              No I’ve never really needed a coupon swap group. I swap coupons with a lady that I work with. Feel free to email me directly w/any questions you have. wvarner2000@netscape.net

            • guest

              you can join Yahoo groups coupon exchange. they will set you up in a group and you send to somebody in anoter state. there are 6 people in a group, and everybody send to the next person in the group. great way to get rid of ones you dont want, and get some coupons that are released regionally that you wouldn't normally get

          • Becky

            Me too, Debbie. I scan my card every time I go in and get such coupons as $1.00 off CVS tissue or cookies. Do you think it could be because we shop there a lot, so they figure they don't have to entice us with good coupons?

            • guest

              I get alot of the same tissue/cookie/candy coupons as well from the scanner. But every once in awhile, I will get lucky :). Also, about every other week, I will get an email from CVS with a $4 off $20 or $5 off $30 coupon. Be sure that you have your CVS card linked up with your email address (and then use the coupons when they come in) (you can do this at CVS.com). I THINK the more you use the coupons, the more they email. I base that only on the fact that I have noticed them coming much more often as I use them – I don’t know if that is truly how they do it – it just seems like it to me.

            • Annie

              I noticed this as well. I have received two $4 of $20 coupons in my emails in the past two weeks. I used mine from last week and wallah! I got another one this week! A few weeks prior, I got a similar coupon and forgot to use it and didn't get another coupon for 3 weeks! So use those coupons when you get them!

            • cristinab4

              I get the same thing almost ever second week, sometimes I will get a $5 off $30 but it is usually the $5 off $20 and it will allow me to print off the same email multiple times and I have never had an issue :)

            • GAmeg

              I never get the $ off $ either, but check those CVS store coupons – lately I've been getting $1 off CVS paper towels – and their mega roll is $1.29, so you can get it for .29! I've done this deal 7 times (theres a CVS on my way to work!), the machine keeps spitting them out each day! Makes for cheap paper towels!

            • Becky

              Thanks, I actually have two of those coupons for paper towels, but never thought to use them on a single roll. I just assumed it would be off a large pack.

            • crystalbrothers

              yeah, this is awesome if you need a small filler item. Paying $.29 for a roll of paper towels is so much more satisfying than just grabbing something random.

          • carolgoss

            Me too. I work 1/4 mile from my CVS so I go during lunchtime a couple of times a week. I have gotten ONE $5 off $15 since they put up the machine. My daughter gets them almost everytime she goes in the store.

          • tinasc

            Oh, me too!! I get $1 off CVS nuts, or tissues, or something like that. I am in there all the time, I sure wish I could snag one of those!!!

        • KBBest

          A few of the cashiers at my Charleston CVS will accept the box/scanner coupons regardless of whether I bought the product or not. They ring up as store coupons and apparently don't require the specific item to work.

          Ask your cashier if they'll do this. It's worth a try!

          • guest

            That is completely inappropriate coupon use and should not be encouraged. Those cashiers will eventually be caught and get into trouble. There are some cashiers at a store I go to that used to tell me about this and I'd say 'no thanks, I'm very particular about using my coupons on the correct items' b/c I knew it wasn't right, well I went in the other day and apparently they got 'the talk' b/c it was discovered that the coupons were being used for items that they were not intended for. Do your cashiers a favor and use your coupons on the correct items, or you may not have your nice cashiers for long.

            • KBBest

              I apologize for posting this. This was an offer made by the cashiers each time, so I had no idea it was against their policy.

            • guest

              Sorry if I came off kind of harsh. I'm just afraid to see anyone else get in trouble b/c it's easy to think that CVS would program the coupons to only work on 'correct' items, but apparently they are just really lazy with coding their coupons but still want them to be used on the correct items.

            • SPH

              Maybe this will help you feel better about your post and understand what CVS is trying to do….

              I was informed by my CVS manager that they are not using enough coupons so they are encouraged to use the CVS store coupons on regular purchases. They were told by upper management that they need to have the customers using more coupons or they would remove the machine. I have not used the $ off store items on regular purchases because I have enough coupons on my items already, but they encourage the use of them….or so I've been told my management! It is apparently not misuse of coupons because they are CVS store coupons they are treated to CVS just like the $ off $$ coupons. Just my experience, not sure what the policy is around other parts! Just wanted to post this to help clarify.

            • Mysterious_Mentalist

              Thank you for the open-minded posts that I always like to hear. Stores, to my understanding, have some deal cut out with manufacturers. Thus, CVS, or any retailer for that matter, is getting some sort of benefit on store Qs-Stores are promoting the manuf. products. Unfortunately, some on these boards are simply lashing out at others for doing what they are supposed to do.

            • KBBest

              Thank you SPH and Mysterious_Mentalist for your posts. I admit to feeling a little attacked initially. This certainly goes a long way towards explaining why they offered me the use of these coupons! I was totally (and pleasantly) surprised the first time. :)

              Thanks very much for your help!

            • guest

              Yes but if people are using the coupons on products other than what they are intended to advertise/promote, then the coupons ARE NOT 'doing what they're supposed to do,' and I would venture a guess that CVS might be risking some of their deals with these manufacturer's if they find that more coupons are being redeemed than the number of correct items being sold.

            • tonya

              most(if any) of these coupons are not manufacturer coupons that come out of the machine. They are CVS coupons and they can do what ever they want with their store coupons! has nothing to do with turning them into a manufacturer.

            • guest

              Yes the ones that are for CVS brand products are straight from CVS, but I would assume that any that we receive for name-brand products are likely b/c of a deal that CVS has w/ that particular manufacturer.

            • Stacey

              please mind you that we are NOT talking about manufacturer coupons…those are STORE coupons and CVS treats them like they would a $3 off $15 purchase. CVS is PROMOTING the use of coupons regardless of what the manufacturer is offering! That is why I understand the use of box/scanner coupons that are put out by CVS on CVS products and they use them on random purchases. They are helping themselves by using them as they are trying to promote the use of shopping at CVS and coupon shopping..or that has been my experience anyway!

      • lisa

        alot of time you get them with prescriptions as well!

      • My CVS will except “competitors” coupons. Rite Aid has both 3 off 15 and 5 off 25. I printed 10 of the 3/15 and just use as I need!

        • crystalbrothers

          I'm sure this is a YMMV kinda thing because the corporate policy is to not accept competitor's coupons for front end items. (THey will accept competitor's coupons for like a gift card for prescription transfer, but not others).

        • mimijb

          Which CVS stores accepts competitor coupons?

          • Laura

            The one on Allison Bonnett, in Hueytown, Alabama.

            • pds

              They accept competitor coupons? Wow!!! I had no idea.

      • Amanda

        i get them in my email from CVS… would have to be from signing up for the extra care card.

      • Denise

        I emailed CVS to ask them why I always get same scanner coupons and also why I never get any emails for x off xx purchase and they said all I needed to do was click ok to agreement terms and they will make sure I start getting emails and coupons.

        • Carrie

          I also e-mailed them about why I never got the $ off $ coupons in my e-mails and they responded saying I was not properly signed up with my card online (I had previously done the steps I thought would take care of this for me but evidently I didn't do it right) and that they registered my card for me. I was then told that it would take 3-4 weeks before I started receiving the e-mails with these coupons. We'll see. Anyway, for those of you who go online to register your cards, I guess don't expect to see a change immediately – give them a few weeks.

      • Lucy

        I lost my card and got a new one. The first time I used a new one, it gave me a $3/$15 coupon. But NOTHING after that, only coupons on CVS brand diapers :(

      • Lori

        Check out the coupon link at iheartcvs.com. She post coupons to cvs almost every week.

        • Remember all of these coupons are intended for the person who get the coupon originally and will beep for anyone else using it. your store may or may not push it through.

    • Owens6

      Thanks for the scenarios…when I try it myself I end up spending $40-$60. Please keep them coming!!!

      • jessica1970

        Same here. I need to get my strategy togther. I've not been successful with CVSing, but I WON'T GIVE UP! :) I guess I just don't have enough HBA stuff stock-piled. Last time I was in CVS I HAD to buy razor blades for both myself and my husband. I nearly cried!

          I attended one of Jenny's workshops and here's the tips she gave that really helped me to understand: 1) put all your purchases in your cart, then find a quite place in the store and plan out your transactions, including laying out your q's etc. She said the cart has 4 corners, so 4 is a nice number of transactions LOL 2) pretend that CVS is it's own country and doens't accept US currency, they only take CVS currency(coupons and ecb). Personally, I print out my list and then sit down with a caculator and write down my strategy, making sure I am spending the least out of pocket, so I might caculate my transactions a few different ways prior to going. the first few times I went I had them written down like Jenny does in her scenarios. . My first few trips didn't go as successfully as I would have liked, but I was determined to firgure it out. I've gotten better at CVS and have been getting more and spending less, it's a great feeling! Hope this helps, Happy CVSing

          • littlemama8

            I do the same thing, and i also plan for items that might be out of stock.

            • zombiemommy

              I do the same, I bring all my coupons in case they are out of stock of one thing…

        • crystalbrothers

          I always get tips from Jenny and other bloggers, and then I plan my trip before I leave the house. I sit down in front of my computer w/ other bloggers to see what I might have coupons for and what's on sale and what might work for me and my family. I plan each transaction. I write on a little slip of paper what will be purchased in each transaction and what coupons I will be using. I then get those coupons ready and paperclip the little slip of paper to the front, which becomes my shopping list for each transaction. This might sound overly complicated, but it's what works for me.

          ALso, bring your coupon binder and sales paper just in case something isn't in stock or something and you need to make substitutions.

      • Carrie

        Since I am so tired doing scenerios with WAGS and I love how easy CVS is in using the ECBs, I always do one transaction and save my ECBs for my next trip. Someone correct me if I'm wrong, but to me it seems like the money comes out the same in the end whether I do multiple transactions to keep my OOP this week low or do one transaction and keep my ECBs to make next week's OOP low. I think the most I've ever had OOP at CVS is about $20. It is usually $5 or less. Of course, I only go in there for the deals, any must haves that aren't on sale come from Wal-Mart where the prices (excluding sales) are cheaper.

        • crystalbrothers

          The multiple transactions are just for people who want to keep their OOP lower each week. If I did one big transaction this week, my OOP would be about $25.63 w/ $16.99 ecb's to use later. In doing multiple transactions, my OOP is going to be $10.75 with $2.00 ecb's to use later. That's not a ton, but it's enough to start me off the next week and continue to keep a lower OOP. My oop is higher this week than normal, but there are things I need to get and w/out the $$/$$ coupons it was harder for me to get a lower oop.

    • homeisthebeachnow

      I'm naive when it comes to shopping at CVS. What are ECB's (extra care bucks maybe>) How do they work-do they carry over to the next week? do they expire? Help:)

      • Becky

        ECB's are “extra care bucks.” CVS gives them to you when you buy certain products. Their sales circular tells you which products gives you ECB's back and how much the ECB's will be. For example, this week, when you buy Pampers jumbo pack, you will get back $3.00 ECB's. The ECB's are like a coupon that can be used only at CVS, but on practically anything in the store. I think they may exclude prescriptions, alcohol, gift cards, lottery, postage stamps and tobacco. They do expire, but typically they are good for several weeks and the expiration date is clearly printed on each ECB. They often have items that are free after you get the ECB's back. Start slow as Jenny suggests and you will soon be “rolling” you ECB's with the best of them! Good luck!

      • Becky

        Oh, and you have to sign up for a CVS card to get the ECB's. Also, be sure to scan your card at the red machine in the front of the store when you go in. Sometimes you will get a ECB “coupon” that you can use that day. Sometimes they are for a certain dollar amount of any purchase and sometimes off a specific product.

      • Sheri

        Welcome to the world of CVS'ing. At the top of the CVS page there is an area to select if you are new and have questions. Also look on Southern Savers home page and read tutorials they really help. Been doing this since summer of 09 It's great!!!! have saved so much money and I'm teaching friends and my college daughter the art of couponing. Just use scenaries and start small Hope this helps

      • crystalbrothers

        Ugh. i never get these! I contacted CVS once and I got 1, but that is the only one I have ever received. Anyone know how to get them? my account is set to subscribe to the emails.

        • toma

          I keep getting 5.00 off when you spend 40.00! I don't want to spend that much!

          • crystalbrothers

            Save a few ecb's each week for a couple weeks (just make sure it doesn't expire) to build up some. Also, wait until there are great coupons to reduce your OOP. And, remember it will be building for the next times because you can build up lots of ecb's for future purchases.

            For my scenario this week, I could do it as one big transaction and meet the $40 and spend about $20 OOP, with $16.99 ecb's for future use. But, if you were trying to get to $40 w/ the least as possible OOP, you could probably do even better. Especially if you have the $14.99 meter coupon that Jenny referenced.

          • Jbush27

            I keep getting $5 off $30 but I don't spend that much. Luckily I've been getting $3 off $15 every time I scan my card in the store.

          • SusanStauffer

            I save up my coupons for free items to use with those. It's a great way to boost your total without boosting your cost. B1G1 free coupons are good to use with those also.

        • Emily

          I retired my card and opened up a new one in hubby's name.

    • crystalbrothers

      You have inspired me to revisit my plan for next week. I'm spending a bit more OOP, but I wanted to get the 2 Olay body washes to finish up my 3 for the $15 Olay rebate. Also, i don't have any $$/$$ coupon, and I only have 1 $2 off pampers and 1 $1.50 off pampers. So, I'll be spending about $10.49 OOP, but will end up with floss (which my hubby needs), colgate, dawn, 2 olay body washes, 2 packages of pampers and a $15 rebate coming back from Olay. So, I think that's a pretty good week at CVS! Especially since we need diapers.

      • lisa

        check the dates on the olay body wash, i think the last date for purchases was 3/12…

        • crystalbrothers

          Thanks for the heads up! For some reason I had in my head that it was until the end of March. I may just skip the Olay then, we'll see. It's still a great deal for my fave body wash.

          • Anonymous

            There’s actually a brand new Olay rebate out–a free Quench lotion after rebate (from now until 4/19). Here’s the rebate form: http://www.olay.com/Club_Olay/march2010/images/Quench_Form_olayhome.pdf This is the second rebate on this item this year! The best deal this next week will be Walgreens though–buy a Quench lotion and get a body wash free–so both items free after rebate. Hope this helps!

    • Lisa

      There is a rebate offer for a free book when you buy Pampers Easy Ups: http://www2.scholastic.com/content/collateral_resources/pdf/p/PAMPERS_Bookoffer.pdf

      • Jbush27

        Thank you, I plan to do this.

    • kelly1369

      I am thinking that CVS will probably be running a huggies deal soon – when I went a coupon printed for $4.00 when you buy huggies diapers and wipes (did not specify size)… but combine that with the $3.00 off coupon and some ECB's and you can get some cheap diapers and wipes!

      • guest

        CVS has Huggies on sale the week of 3/28 – 2/$17.98 with $5.00 ecbs back. If you have 2 of the $3.00 coupons, you could get 2 jumbo packs, pay $11.98 after coupons, and get back $5.00 ecbs. Even better if your $4.00 coupon will still be valid (just throw in a small travel thing of wipes to get for free and basically get another dollar or 2 off of your diapers), and also if you have a $/$$ coupon and existing ecbs to use on the deal. Jenny does not post the ads that far in advance b/c unfortunately some people would get confused, but you can start to prepare for this deal. It is listed complete with ad scans on several larger couponing websites.

      • Annie

        I got the same thing but mines expires on 3/22! Im so bummed. I was hoping this week they would have some sales so I could combine that with my $4 of $20 coupon and the manu. $3 coupon. Oh well

    • kimberlywoods

    • Michelle

      There’s a $1.50/2 Frosted Mini-Wheats coupon on coupons.com that will make those $1.22/box.

    • MomMe

      Does CVS accept competitor Q? If so, Target has a Q for $1 off the AirWick I motion starter kit, combine it with the $4 off Q, and it would be free.

      • crystalbrothers

        Their corporate policy is “no” but some people have had success.

      • tracim

        My CVS in AL told me last weekend that they have started accepting competitor Q.

      • 1sable2u2

    • vgwagoner

      Transaction #1
      (1) Colgate Total Toothpaste $3.99
      Total Due: $3.99 (pay with US currency)
      Get Back: $3.99 ECB

      Transaction #2:
      (2) Pampers Cruisers – $8.97 each
      -$2 Q
      -$1.5 Q
      -$3.99 ECB
      Total Due: $7.45 (US currency)
      Get Back: $6 ECB

      Now for transaction #3 can I use a different CVS card?
      (2) Pampers Cruisers – $8.97 each
      -$2 Q
      -$1.5 Q
      -$6 ECB
      Total Due: $5.44 (US currency)
      Get Back: $6 ECB

      I spent more out of pocket than Jenny, but still got diapers, Pampers brand at that for less than 15 cents each.

      Any suggestions on how to come out for less?

      • AKellyinVA

        You can use a separate CVS card, but the $6 ECBs from Transaction 2 cannot be used. If you have $6 ECBs from your 2nd card, then that scenario works. ECBs are card-specific. Still great deals for Transaction 1 and 2.

      • crystalbrothers

        You can use a second card (you are allowed a separate one for another adult in the household). However, the ECB's won't roll to the other card. THey are specific to the one that you printed them with. So, you can't use ecb's generated from your first card to pay.

        • Jbush27

          It says one card per household, not per person.

          • guest

            That is incorrect. There is nothing written anywhere that limits cards to 1 per household. Look at the application you get in the store and you will not find anything about 1 per household. However some stores will not allow you to use 2 cards based on the fact that the ad lists DEALS as limited per household. CARDS are not limited, but DEALS have a limit listed so that they can limit your purchases if they fell you're buying too much and not leaving anything for other people. It's each store's individual discretion.

            • Mysterious_Mentalist

              Unfortunately, there is no system in place, such as finger printing, where stores would be able to detect and implement “wont allow you………not leaving anything for others…..” There is virtually no way to stop people from buying nor there is nor there should be any mechanism where consumers would be put on witness stand when they come to cash register. If you bought certain items, then came around for second transaction, do you like to be interrogated what you bought earlier?

    • kcreviews

      I'd like to see some scenarios that do NOT include diapers. :)

      • guest

        You mean like Transaction #1 in BOTH of the plans listed at the top? You don't have to do the second part if you don't want to. There's just not a whole lot to work with this week.

    • If you sign up on the CVS.com website and keep track of you extra care bucks rewards and I also get a 4.00 off 20.00 or 5.00 off 30.00 coupon almost every week. I also had a 7.00 courtesy reward print out on my receipt last visit.

      • crystalbrothers

        That is so weird that some people get these and others don't.

        • Donna G

          I checked my profile on CVS.com and had to call corporate because it would not keep the radio button for emails checked. Every time I looked in my profile, it would not be marked. I had to call on a weekday and talk to a live person who then told me that they set it up on his end, so I should now get their emails. I've NEVER gotten a CVS email, so I am looking forward to my first one this weekend!

          • Natalie559

            This was my same issue, I would change to yes but once I logged off it defaulted back to no. I emailed and they said they fixed it on there end. I got an emailed coupon the next week.

    • Amanda

      Hi, can someone please tell me whether the store coupons for, say, $3 off of $15 purchase, can be used before the manufacturer coupons are taken off? Or will they only take it off the final total? That will make a difference in my transactions. Thank you!

      • JenniferB

        i hand them the $x off/$xx coupon first, then I hand them my coupons, I have them subtotal, then I hand over any ecb's I'm using. They seem to like it when I do it that way.

      • Mysterious_Mentalist

        This is universal. Your store x off xx purchase always apply regardless of your payment type for subsequent balance wether in cash, credit, coupons, or gift card. X off Q. Therefore, as long as you TOTAL balance suffices the condition, then the X off Q. kicks in. Hand that first, just in case and then rest of the Qs would be scanned.

        • Cynthiann

          When you use the $ off $$ coupon the order does matter. I learned this from personal experience :) Always hand the cashier the $ off $$ coupon first.

    • Amanda

      another question…. does anyone know, are the glucose meters kept in the pharmacy? which would mean having to wait till 10 am when the pharmacy opens… which would be a bummer because the meters would be my first transaction of 4, of which I plan to donate most everything to a women's shelter. Thanks!

      • AKellyinVA

        Use your $/$$ before manuf. Qs :) That's what makes CVS so cool.

        Here the glucose meters are near the pharmacy on a shelf. They're not IN the pharmacy, so you should be able to walk right in and do your shopping.

    • Jo

      Has anyone had any problems with CVS making you buy extra items in order to 'use up' all of your ECB's? I had a transaction that was 0.11c less than all of my coupons and ECB's and they made me buy an additional item (I wasn't too bothered, I just picked up a candy bar) as they said the register wouldn't complete the transaction if it was in a negative amount.

      • guest

        ECBs can be 'adjusted down' if you are purchasing a little less than what they are worth. If you look at your ecb, it should clearly say “UP TO $x.xx value” meaning you do NOT have to redeem it for the full amount if you don't want to. The register will allow them to type in the ECB for the amount that you are still able to pay (if you have a $4.99 subtotal and hand over a $5.00 ecb, the register will allow them to type in $4.99 for the ecb). Some stores are weird about this but they should be adjusting the value down accordingly if you acknowledge that you know you'll be losing a few cents and don't mind. If you continue to have problems with this, I suggest calling Customer Service (1-800-SHOP-CVS) and ask them to set the store straight. They will call the store and inform them of the correct procedure.

      • Sloan

        They can adjust the value of the ECB to equal the balance. Sometimes I think they forget that they can do this. Although I don't like to waste my CVS money, sometimes if I can't find anything that I need or want, I'll just take the loss on a few cents. Just ask them to adjust your ECBs from $5 to $4.89 or whatever…

      • Suemh

        I had this happen to me one time at a store that is not my “regular”. The cashier refused to enter my ecb for 2¢ less than the amount that it was for. I had to buy a piece of candy that I did not want. She then refused to ring me up when I wanted to do the same transaction with my husband's card. I will not go back to that store.

    • ChefLezlie

        Donate it! Here in Greenville, SC, you can donate toiletries and personal items to homeless and women's shelters through Miracle Hill Ministries. I'm sure there there are shelters, clinics, etc everywhere that would love new meters donated.

        • leighsc

          Do you just drop the meters in the Miracle Hll drop box? Or do you need to go there?

      You would need a membership, but they also use to allow a one day pass for people to try it out. You also use to have to pay 5% surcharge without membership but I'm not sure whether this is required now or if the percentage is right.

      When do the registers set for the new week's sales ad when the CVS is open 24 hours? I dont want to go in at 12:01am on Sunday to make sure I get my pampers, if the registers wont be reading the new ad.. Anybody know/ THANKS!

    • Kathy

      If Dawn is on sale for 97 cents won't the 1.00 coupon beep?

      • Carrie

        I've done this deal twice over the last couple of months and haven't had any problem. Of course, I was buying other things at the time so I guess the overage was just absorbed. The cashier had not problem using the coupon and it didn't have to be adjusted down to equal $.95.

      • Mysterious_Mentalist

        I think I have had mixed experience on this. Sometimes, registers have beeped in which case it would need to be adjusted down to the amount of that product; however, at other times, it had not and the overage was simply applied to rest of the balance. However, I am thinking if you did not have any other Dawn product starting with the same upc numbers and thus no other balance for the same product/upc, then register would beep asking for adjustment.

      Does anyone know for sure if CVS in cleveland tn(and which one) accepts competitor q's for transferred scripts? I think there's a q for rite aid 25 dollars gc with transferred prescription, I would love it if CVS accepted this.

      • chattanoogacheapskate

        michelle – the cleveland, TN store on both Keith St. (next to Save-A-Lot) & on Ocoee (across from Walgreens) accept them in my experience. Make sure you know how to do this prescription transfer business before going in, I called my pharmacist to explain what I wanted to do before ever going to the doctor that day – and she was super-duper-helpful!

      • Clevelandcouponer

        The CVS on APD-40 took my RA q. I was told it was for a transfered prescription only.

          My coupons always says transferred but when I ask them if they'll take it on a new prescription and they say no, I just say no problem, I'll just bring it to the other store than and thank them for their time. They quickly change their minds and honor the coupon. I figure it doesn't hurt – the worst they say is no and then you take it to the other place!

      question what do you do with all the meters that you buy

      • guest

        Some people have friends or family members that can use the free strips that come inside of them (only certain brands and models come w/ freebies, and Contour I believe is one of them). Others may attempt to sell them but many people donate them to organizations that can use them. At the very least, you can take it to Goodwill and they will resell it.

      • Mysterious_Mentalist

        Find people around you who may be going to other countries where they can donate them to the needy ones. While we may get them for free or almost free (because manuf. want you to have them for free and then come back and buy expensive stripes to keep their pockets filling and going), there are countries where it is extremely expensive. A little research will help someone in less fortunate parts of the world to have it. I am gigivng few to my building super who would take them to his Eastern European country. I personally do not like Goodwill because they sell stuff very expensive; I rather vouch for Salvation if at all.

      • Natalie559

        Thanks so much for the heads up, checked my email and there it was- $5 coming my way- love it!

    • Meme

      Jenny, I love your suggestion to start off slow. I went in with so many “rolling” transactions my mind was already confused. Then when there were many items already cleared out, it threw my mind off that much more. I wish I had literally bought the first transaction (making sure I had the ECB or RR's printed for this first transaction and gone to my car with it, returned and did the next transaction.

      I feel rushed when more customers line up behind me and I make huge mistakes. So I am learning to slow down and let others go ahead while I regroup my thoughts, coupons, and ECB's or RR;s for the next transaction.

      Another pointer that I feel is very important for some to know. Our family is having to use EBT right now for food purchases. I take advantage of food offers with coupons and ECB's or RR's. I do this transaction first and roll these RR's or ECB;s on the next transactions. This gives me extra cash for the power and water bill, etc. Others are probably way ahead of me on this but I thought it important to mention. It has saved us much on detergents, shampoo and personal hygeine items, and even allowed my daughter and I to restock some makeup and skin care products we hadn't had since the job cuts started happening.

      Also, do the food purchases first as many registers take all coupons off the food items and you pay extra for the non-food items. The EBT charge will be minute but the out-of-pocket charge will be at regular cost for the items. Since I am couponing, I have had plenty of EBT to cover all food items, but again the power and water bill are hard to come by, especially when there is a mortgage added on top of that. Not complaining, just explaining.

      Please forgive me for such long emails tonight. There were just alot of suggestions I wanted to make after couponing for several months and learning a little more about what special challenges some of our older minds have.

      Thank you for a wonderful site, and so many wonderful and helpful friends who offer suggestions and links to available coupons. One more question, though. Do you use a Data base for listing coupons? Do you offer a download for the list? I have often thought I would find that helpful when searching for say “pillsbury products”. etc Thanks again.

      • http://www.taylortownpreview.com has all of the non-expired coupons in one big master list.
        http://www.hotcouponworld.com has a database of all available coupons, including printables. Searchable database, so cool.

        • latinisimo

          I've personally been getting $10 off $50 everytime I go to CVS. That particular coupon is like gold to me. I normally shop in only one large trasaction.
          To make things less confusing, I've made up a spreadsheet with formulas where I only have to plug in the items I buy and the price with it's respective coupon and the speadsheet does all the calculating on its own. (I make sure I have $50 transaction).

          I've come to the point where I keep making more and more ECB every week. For the past month and a half now, the only thing I've been paying for OoP now are taxes, using the $10 off $50 coupon. Now, I have $41ECB accumulated.

          • Carrie

            Would you be willing to share the spreadsheet?

            • latinisimo

              I'm sorry to be an a-hole, but no.

            • Lindsay

              Wow, seems like you're just on the site to brag, latinisimo. Why mention your spreadsheet at all? Those of us who read comments often do so hoping for extra tips/coupons/etc. Seems like you have “made things less confusing” for yourself with your spreadsheet, but are unwilling to share your work with the community. I actually don't even want your spreadsheet. I'm just shocked that you won't share it with Carrie, or anyone else who wants it! I'm glad Jenny doesn't hoard her information like you do! She freely shares her hard work with all of us so that we can learn and save money together. Seems like if you enjoy her free info, you ought to be willing to do the same.

              This comment actually made me a little sorry for you…..

        • Mysterious_Mentalist

          Thanks for posting this. I have been looking for such a database. However, I have some questions.

          On hotcoupon world, I typed in Bayer Contour to see what date it was out. It gave me all Bayer but the one meter one with “up to $30..” coupons. Is that website reliable or it just enters data as it receives from other users? How come it did not pop up the $30 bayer Contour meter coupon?

          On taylortown, I was able to find all the insert dates with exact coupons listed. However, how do do I search to see when a particular Q. came out-the date and the insert RP or SS? In other words, how do I do a search for Bayer Contour, for example, to see what date it was out so that I can check my folders? (I had to look into 10/25/09 insert details to confirm the Q. was out then. But how, if I wanna know the insert date and know for sure that Q. was out sometimes?)

          Am I missing something on those websites? Thanks

          • Anonymous

            The bayer coupon is on Hotcouponworld database its on page 3 of 6 (i typed in the word bayer only) . You just have to scroll through that huge database….Hotcouponworld (hcw) is member generated and it is very reliable information. In fact to become a full fledged member of hcw takes sometime. Those are some serious coupon people. Its almost overwhelming navigating that site and learning the rules for each forum (they take fraud very seriously and you can get an infraction for just talking about certain coupons).

            You may want to try the couponmom.com coupon database (requires registration I think). She has it by region/city. I keep it bookmarked on my toolbar, because coupons vary so much by area that before I start searching for a coupon Jenny or Crystal or Mercedes mentions, I want to verify that it actually came out in my area and for what amount.

      • Carrie

        Personally, it's easier for me to do CVS in one transaction and save the ECBs for the following week. I really think that in the end whether you do multiple transactions and make your OOP lower this week or do one transaction and save your ECBs so your OOP will be lower the next week, the money comes out the same. So, since I easily confuse myself with all the multiple transactions at WAGS (especially if they are out of something I had based my shopping plans around), I find it refreshing to just do one transaction at CVS and keep the ECBs for the following week.

        As for your question about the coupon database, I've heard people use the coupon clippers (dot) com. Hope it helps.

      • Anonymous

        I love Jenny’s website the best!! She rocks!! I always make my lists here…for example I shop at Bi-lo and always make a list of what they have on sell. I then list the other items my family needs that week then I go to couponmom.com she has a grocery coupon database link on the left hand side. Click on it then choose your state or region. I use the southeast. This gives you a box to enter your data. Type in pillsbury (as an example) and it will list all available coupons for newspaper inserts and printables that are availiable out there. I print from there or go to my coupon file and retrieve them. This has really helped me with my items not listed on Jenny’s sales lists that week. HTH

    • a_shrader

      Ok, on the Zyrtec. If you have a $4 man coupon can you stack it with a printable?

      • a_shrader

        The reason I ask, is I thought you could stack manufacture and printables, but when I printed it, the coupon says manufacture. Any thoughts?

        • If the printable says manufacture coupon, staking is not allowed. Only one manufacture coupon per item. However, if you have a store coupon, then you could stack the store coupon with the manufacture coupon on the same item.

    • mightymousemom

      There is a CVS $2.00 off Zyrtec Coupon on the CVS website, you can stack them with the manf -Q- for even more discount on the Zyrtec deal.

      • irmolees

        I saw the same thing – Jenny, can you stack the CVS $2 with a $4 MQ?

      • Khutch

        It says CVS/pharmacy coupon at the top so I'm hoping it can be stacked. Not sure though. Does anyone else know?

        • Suemh

          My store always accepts these. They usually have to push them through, though.

      • Kate

        There is a $5 off printable CVS coupon for the 70 count and there is a $6 off of the 70 count in the paper today.

        • Kate

          Whoops, I forgot that the extra bucks are only for the 30 count!

          • vgwagoner

            wont it still be a better deal to stack your 2 Qs even thought you will not earn any ECBs?

    • Rhonda

      Question: Where can I find the Marcal brand tissue? I have several coupons for free ones, but I don't know which store carries that brand. Thanks.

      • Carrie

        I was wondering the same thing. I thought I saw them at CVS but I wasn't paying too much attention. I'm going to check back though. I hope they do because I see those coupons quit often.

      • Suemh

        I used mine for facial tissue at Bi-Lo. They are normally around 1.20 a box and the coupon takes off $1. I have not seen the single rolls of tissue. I used one when Bi-Lo had the Marcal Paper Towels really cheap.

      • Laura

        I have bought the Marcal Brand from Bruno's, Food World & Piggly Wiggly.

      • debbie

        I use mine at BiLo and Earth Fare.

      • April

        I've seen the Marcal tp at K-mart, not that I'll ever shop there again though. And Bi-Lo has them on sale a lot for $1 and Kroger carries that brand.

      • Natalie559

        if possible, always check the website of the product, they often times list stores where their product is available- here in tally, fl it listed harveys

      • Snowski824

        I know you can find it at Earthfare and I am guessing Whole Foods.

    • Rebecca Sobeck

      CVS…..Oil of Olay products…I came up with this scenerio… CVS has $5 ECB wyb (2) Oil of Olay Body Wash at $6.00 each. That's $12.00 to start, then I will use a $1.00 mfg coupon. That's now $11.00. There is a $15.00 rebate coupon on their website if you buy 3. Now that is up to $17.00. Mail in the rebate and you have 3 body washes for $2.00! Oh, then they are going to give you your ECB of $5.00, that's $3 profit! yay

      • Suemh

        Check that rebate form. I believe the lastday to purchase prodcts was 3/12.

      • Carrie

        There is a new rebate out that Jenny has listed under the WAGS ad for this week.

    • Mysterious_Mentalist

      I received the widely touted P&G coupon booklet. What a waste of stamp and time to collect receipts to send them.


      a) The booklet has hardly a few of all P&G products. For example, the booklet does not have any Gillette line coupons such as fusion cartridge that I could have used. I was expecting some higher value Qs than those I get in their monthly inserts. The booklet is missing even the regular ones altogether, let alone higher value Qs for thise products.

      b) The silly Qs like Dawn detergent is still 25 cents coupon which we already get at every of their mailings (ok maybe 20 cents one).

      c) The bext Q. I saw was B1G1 free Old Spice body spray but that is something that comes out in their regular inserts once every two months, if not every month, anyway.


      a) The expirations are several months
      b) There are 3 sets of Qs each with different expiration months

      I just dont understand why they were making us buy $50 worth products before you would get such nonsense. Marketing tactic at the worst!

      The bottomline;- dont waste your time and energy for such a silly booklet, and enjoy the regular monthly insert.

      • jessica1970

        I totally agree. I read in someone else's blog what came with the booklet and decided then not to waste time.

      • aliciash

        Thanks for the preview, was getting my receipts ready to send in but now I won't waste my time.

      • joyfullysaving

        Look on the positive side you may get other mailings in the future… We can always hope.

        • jessica1970

          Yes, this is my hope. I already get PG mailings, so I'm hoping future mailings will be “good” and forthcoming. :) But, every penny counts, doesn't it. And 25 cents is still 25 cents.

          • Suemh

            In some cases, 25¢ is 50¢!

      • vgwagoner

        The .75 Q is better than $1, cause it will be double or tripled. That is redeeming. I too am not going to the trouble this time, did not look like anything I would use.

    • Lane

      I am just learning the cvs thing and was wondering…are they like walgreens where you cant have more coupons than items? And where a RR count as a coupon. Does an ecb count as a coupon?Example…could you buy three items…have a coupon for each one and then use an ecb on top of that?

      • Suemh

        ECB's can be used just like cash. It does not matter how many you use. You just can not get change back. So, yes, you can do your scenario. You could even have 2 coupons per item (Manufacturer & store coupon) and stil use numerous ECB's to pay. And don't forget to scan your card at the price checker / card scanner machine if your sore has one.

      • Susi

        ECB's don't work like RR – You can have 1 item for 20.00 and pay with 22 ECBs –

    • mhs1102

      i am a newbie, but i asked at the cvs i went to yesterday and they said the new week starts at midnight but that the new prices are set at 6 pm on saturday. the cashier said you get the best price from either week.

    • Roxy

      -$14.99 Bayer Meter RP 10/25……..where did this coupon come from…the Red Plum on 10/25 last year? IF so is there any other place to get this coupon cause I know I dont have coupons that old

      • Suemh

        Yes, that is what it means. Probably thr only place you can get it now would be ebay and they are rather expensive.

      • guest

        Yes unfortunately it has been a very long time since we received that coupon, and b/c there have been quite a few great deals using it in the past couple of months, supply is very low and prices are very high. *Hopefully* we will get a new one soon since this one expires in a little over a month, but it is not certain until we see it.

    • Jessica

      Okay, I am a newbie cvser…so I want to go to CVS tomorrow and get some of the items that earn the ECB. I have the $4.00 off with purchase of $20.00. I want to get the colgate toothpaste, the crest rinse, (2) olay soap, the dawn dish soap. and the Sunday paper. This would equal to the 20.00 purchase, but do I want to do that or do I want to purchase one item at a time to earn the ECB first? Thanks for your help!

      • Suemh

        That would depend on what other coupons you have and whether or not you want to have ecb's left over for next week. In order to use the $4 coupon, you would have to buy it all at once, which would save you more in the long run. Or you could do several different transactions to roll your ecb's to give you less out-of-pocket now.

        • Jessica

          Thank you for the advise. I decided to go with the all at once purchase. I ended up spending about $18.00, saved about $17.00 and accumulated $11.00 in ecb. I am exicted to see how things go when I use the ecb instead of cash. I hope it works out as well as the transaction tips. I would love to spend nothing and still earn ecb. :)

    • Lisa

      When you receive the coupon printouts from grocery stores, they all say “redeemable at” and the store name…food lion, bi-lo, etc.

      My question is, can these coupons be used at other stores besides the one listed on it?

      • Mysterious_Mentalist

        This is a tricky one-Not everyone is sure. I am looking at one printed at my grocery store where on top usual header says “manufac. Q” and the barcode area says “redemmable at…” followed by usual logo etc. The UPC bars have a number that starts with “99” clustered together and then followed by the product upc. If you pay attention to the bar code area, the 'design” does not look like usual manuf. Qs. So, NO I cant use it anywhere but at the store it was printed at-This is because manuf. have a special deal with that groicery store only. If you have the bar area “design” that does not look like a normal Qs you see, then I am afraid you can not use it anywhere else (even though it might say manuf. Q. because it is a manuf Q to be used at that particular store only)

        This is not to confuse with some other Qs. that you might have received in a booklet “Sav a Lot” or something to that nature. On those the bar code 'design” is normal and I believe they can be used anywhere. Any particular store logo/name is just advertising of that store.

        • Lisa

          Thank you so much for your help! It definitely clears things up and I will check the bar codes. Unfortunately…I don't think I'll be getting into the pamper's deal though :(

    • tara

      how come the st ives that you posted has a coupon that is in the SS 3/28, but we wont get that till next sunday and then obviously the deal will be over?

      • Mysterious_Mentalist

        Major papers in my area now publish “early Sunday” edition that comes out evening of Saturday. They do have the Sunday inserts in them (and then on actual Sunday paper, they have the same inserts again). In some papers, maybe major ethnic ones, have them out even on Fridays-I think. Sometimes I have found coupons scattered in buses and trains on Fridays/Saturdays-So some papers do have them early.

      • 3monkeysmom

        I saw in the Rite Aid post that this was a mistake, she meant 3/21 :-)

    • michelle

      I love shopping cvs on Sat night! I ran in tonight and these were my transactions:

      Total 22.00(plus tax)
      -2/1 pampers
      -2/1 pampers

      -1/1 colgate
      total 13 plus tax
      transaction 2
      Crest mouth rinse
      Aw rootbeer(1.99!) i know but I really wanted rootbeer
      2 CVS paper towel single roll
      2 Sensodyne for children on clearance for 1.99
      1 pampers easy ups
      (2)-1/1 cvs paper towels
      1.50 pampers easy ups
      (2)1/1 sensodyne
      2/1 crest mouth rinse
      6 ecbs
      3.99 ecbs
      total approx 5 after tax
      got back 5 ecbs(3, 2)
      So, in summary I got all of this for about 15 dollars, YAY!
      CVS is awesome!

    • Laura Kennedy

      It's so nice to experience good customer service these days! Kudos to Michael H. of the Hickoryflat Hwy. CVS in Canton, GA for being so helpful and encouraging to those of us trying to work out the ECB scenarios. I'm calling his supervisor tomorrow to pay him a compliment. Management needs to know about the employees who make shopping at CVS a pleasure.

      • sarah

        I was at the Huntsville Southern Savers class this weekend and a lady there who was a former cashier thought of a great idea. There are B1G1 q's for candy bars out right now. She said to get a couple and hand the “free” one to your cashier with a word of thanks. In some small way, you are rewarding them and thanking them for being so helpful. And giving them a good impression of couponers. I thought this was a wonderful idea and I plan on doing it myself!

        • Laura Kennedy

          Thanks Sarah…great idea! The store manager was happy to take my “compliment call”. I went one step further with a call to 1-800-shop-cvs. Needless to say, they were surprised at the reason for my call. After giving them the store # & employee name, they assured me that the district manager would be notified and that eventually Michael would have a corporate letter of praise for his personnel file. Now if it made me feel that good to make the calls…imagine what it might do for him and for his already outstanding customer service. Make those calls!

        • carolgoss

          That's a great idea Sarah. I have access to a good supply of pens that are left at our office. On several occasions I have given the cashier my pen. They've really appreciated them. Seems that theirs frequently disappear like ours do.

    • kayborkowski

      A heads up for the Simpsonville/Greenville SC area. We went into our CVS on Fairview and Harrison Bridge tonight to finish our Dove deal. I checked for the grass and filler eggs…..NONE and they had not received any! The manager called 4 other stores, one on Wade Hampton, none had them. I am doing a Lenten egg project with my class at church tomorrow and will have to pay RETAIL at walmart:( …..a buck a dozen was the cheapest I saw them. But I will definitely see if I can get a rain check, even though this is only a 3 day sale

    • clw2283

      So this was my first CVS trip ever! Here's what I got:

      Transaction 1:
      Colgate total enamel $3.99
      Air wick i-motion air freshener $4.99

      -$4 air wick
      -$1 colgate
      Total: 3.98
      Got back: $3.99 ECB

      Transaction 2:
      Covergirl liquid makeup $6
      Covergirl pressed powder $6

      B1G1 Covergirl face makeup
      -$1 any Covergirl product
      Total: $5
      Got Back: $3 ECB

      Transaction 3:
      (2) Pampers Cruiser Jumbo packs

      -(2) $2 pampers coupons
      -$3 ECB
      -$3.99 ECB

      Total: 6.95
      Got back: $6 ECB

      So I only spent $15.93 for everything and got $6 ECB!! I was so excited!

      • steph2131

        so i have a question? are ECB considered coupons or can i use them even if i have a coupons for everything i am buying and stack those on top?

        • marysc

          Nope, not coupons. Think of ECBs as “CVS cash”!

    • April

      I made my first CVS purchase today and I am so excited to go tomorrow for diapers! I was wondering if CVS accepts CVS coupons and manufacturer coupons for the same item? Can I still use ECB's to pay and will I still get ECB's in return? There is a $2 off Zyrtec liquid gels 12ct or 25ct on their website and I have a $4 off any 24ct or larger adult Zyrtec manufacturer coupon… Thank you!

      • April

        Ok… I think the answer is yes to everything but I am still double checking with all of the experienced CVSers!

        • Suemh

          You are right. Yes to everything. CVS is great!

    • Nay

      I was wondering the sale on the stayfree $2 ECB wyb Stayfree Pads, Regular 24ct at $3.89 is that a long month deal for March? Help!!!

      • Suemh

        Yes. It was not tagged in my stores, but I did it in 2 different ones.

      I need Bayer $30 coupon for this week. I did not get it in my region. If someone can please email me if they have one or two to spare. I have inserts from several months and in multiples. I may be able to fulfil your wishlist.

      Thanks in advance


    • debbieparnell

      Hi everyone,
      If you are looking for somewhere to donate items, may I make a suggestion? Our troops serving in Iraq and Afghanistan, would love to have items. Our bases in these countries have PX's where the troops can get items, but they are greatly lacking. They get shipments of items every couple of weeks, but they items are gone within minutes. The troops need everything from the very least of items to the greatest. They are excited when they get toothpaste, toothbrushes, shampoo etc. Our female troops are in the greatest need. The PX stocks mostly men's items, so the girls are mostly left out. They would love anything girly, even though they are soldiers, they are still girls too.
      If you would like more info, please comment and I will get back to you.

      • Amy J.

        I was thinking I would love to send some stuff to our troops, Debbie, so thanks for posting this……..I just have no idea where to send it……Please let me know……..if you’d like you can email me

        • debbieparnell

            Hi!  That's fine.  Another thought, if you want to help troops in your location, see if you have a local Blue Star Mothers group.  They can give you lots of help and info.


        • leslie

          I send my stuff to any solider.com. They list troops from all states and different branches. They love receiving items and I feel very honored to be able to help them.

      • jhillpot

        Ok, I'm very interested in this idea. Being an army brat, I'm all for supporting the troops, wherever they are. Do you (or anybody) know where we can drop off or send items for them? I know mailing stuff isn't the cheapest route, but for those without local drop-off areas who want to contribute, it might be good.

      • ma

        I am interested in doing the supplies as a humanitarian church project. Can you send me information about shipping and what we can and can not sent. Thanks. Mimi at boxxmwindstream.net

        • debbieparnell

            Thank you for your interest.
           At your local Post Office you can get Priority Mail flat rate boxes.  Make sure to ask for the APO/FPO boxes.  These ship to Iraq for 12.50.    You can send pretty much anything to Iraq, you just need to make sure that you tell the post office when you get ready to ship.
          Some of the things the soldiers are looking for most are any kind of girly items, shampoo, toothpaste, toothbrushes, body wash, pretty much any kinds of toiletries.


          • ma


      • pam

        Hey i have deoderant, maxi pads, toothbrushes etc. how can i help? thanks

        • debbieparnell

            If you want I can send you my son's address in Iraq.  He has access to share the items with the girls as well.   Just let me know if you want the address.   You can get Priority Mail Military Flat Rate Boxes at your local Post Office, it only costs 12.50 to ship to Iraq, no matter how much you put in these boxes.


      • My SIL is navy and she said one of the greatest things you can send is those mini toothbrushes that have the paste on them and don't need water… I can't think of the name/brand!!! UGH!! The coupons keep coming in different magazines lately. Being out on a mission for 5-15 days w/ no showers/bathroom facilities is rough. Having a clean mouth made her life easier.

        • Lucy

          I think it's Colgate Wisp?

    • dgram41

      My CVS trip this morning: I bought 4 bags of Easter candy, 1 gallon of milk, 2 boxes of Kellogg's Frosted Flakes, 1 AirWick Motion Starter Kit, 2 Crest Rinse, 2 Colgate Total toothpaste, 2 Olay Body Wash and 1 box of 30 count CVS band-aids for a Total of $2.07 oop (factoring in ECBs I received). I am OFFICIALLY hooked on CVS!!

    • flowergirl889092

      Don't know if anyone posted this yet, but today's SS had $3 and $4 Schick coupons, great for the BOGO on Schick Razors.

    • Natalie559

      Just looked online and my ad here in Tall, FL lists gallon milk $3.19 with $0.50 ECB limit 2 and there were printables for $1.00off TG Lee milk which I think is my regional brand! That's a good price for milk these days.

    • andrea

      I can't get the St. Ives coupon to print. It says I already printed it and I have not. Can you help me figure out how to get it to print?

    • debbieparnell

      One thing that I do, I have a son who is in Iraq. You can get the APO/FPO Flat Rate Boxes at your local Post Office. You can put as much as you can in these boxes, and they ship for a flat rate of $12.50. If you want, I can send you his address, or you can either go on a website called “AnySoldier.com”, go to where to send and there you can see addresses of all soldiers who are signed up to receive mail and packages. Please let me know if you need more information.

    • Does CVS scan coupons for things you bought on a previous order and forgot to use a coupon for? I got to the store and realized my $1 off Q was a Colgate TOOTHBRUSH q, and then at home I found a 75 cent off Q.

      • guest

        In most cases, no. However you could try taking your receipt back to the store along with your coupon and ask – the worst they can say is 'no'. You may get lucky and have a very nice store that will do it for you, but they are not required to. Keep your fingers crossed. :)

        • well our store does take expired coupons so maybe.

      • 3monkeysmom

        That's happened to me before too. I went back with my receipt and coupon and they gave me the amount of the coupon in cash BUT I noticed this and went back on the same day. It might depend on how long you wait.

        • I went the same day and made a point to see the same cashier and she did give me my money back!!! I also brought the product with me in case I needed to return it and then buy it again with the coupon. No need for all that drama; she just scanned the coupon and gave me my cash back! I had to go back to get a 3rd pack of diapers anyway as I had found out earlier that they took expired coupons and I had an expired $1.50 off coupon at home.

    • I just paid $22.60 for 3 Pampers Diapers from CVS, a Tube of toothpaste CVS, and a Dove chocolate Bar from CVS, and 3 Huggies diapers from Rite-Aid!!!

      That's 201 Diapers, free toothpaste, and a free chocolate Bar!

    • Shelley

      Ohhh, I had a $3 off $15 from CVS by email, but somehow deleted it! Does CVS Lexington SC take Rite Aid coupons? Thanks for your help!

      • you may try scanning your card at the scanner when you go in.. I got a $4 off $20 Q!

    • Ashley

      Awesome CVS trip! I bought 1 Pampers diapers and 1 colgate total. I used $2 off pampers and $1 off colgate and my 9ecbs. I paid 1.90 OOP and got back 6.99 in ECB's. Then I bought another pampers, used a 1.50 off coupon and my 6.99 in ecbs. I paid 1.18 and got back $3 in ecb's!

      Ok, so I saw on their sign that CVS accepts competitors coupons. Walgreens has a store coupon this week for $8 off Crest Vivid Whitestrips. CVS is offering $10 ECB and I have a $10 manufacturers coupon. So would the Walgreens coupon be looked at as a STORE coupon or a manufacturers coupon?? If you could use both this would be a great deal!

        CVS accepts competitor's *pharmacy* coupons – like the ones that say 'transfer a prescription and get a free $25 giftcard'. As a company, they do not accept competitors' coupons for front-end store items (non-prescription, as in all the stuff that we get deals on). There are a *few* stores out there that take them, but it is not company policy so those stores are very very hard to come by. I have not found a single one in my area, and there are a lot of CVS's in my area. Check with your store and ask if it's just pharmacy coupons or if they mean ALL competitor's coupons – you just might get lucky and you might have one of those rare stores that will take everything. But call and ask before you plan your trip b/c it is quite uncommon.

    • The Pampers diapers limit 3 worked for me! It looks like more cheap diapers!! I bought 2 and checked my receipt and bought 1 more before it said limit reached. I had a great week at CVS :)

    • Lisa

      Went to CVS today & bought 2 pkgs of Easy Ups, Colgate toothpaste, Crest mouthwash, and Olay Quench lotion. Between the ECBs and the Olay rebate, I only paid $4! I love CVS!! (and of course Jenny for teaching me how)

    • nfg

      I did awesome today between CVS and wags. Between the two I got 3 jumbos of Huggies, 2 packs of M&Ms, a tube of colgate, and 2 packs of pampers. After coupons and ECBs and RRs used and received, I spent $3 and change for everything! My wife couldn't believe it! She was even happier when I handed her a bottle of Dove shampoo, conditioner, hair spray and mousse all for $2.04!

    • Tina

      Will the $1.97 Reese's count towards the buy $10.00 in Easter candy and receive $3 in bucks?

      • a_shrader

        I believe all candy in the store is counting toward the total, it seems to be for me.

    • pam

      when jenny says “due nothing” is she NOT including tax, just going dollar for dollar on the product?

      • a_shrader

        I believe so, since taxes vary. hth

    • Jamie Y

      I scored BIG at my CVS….The Colgate total advanced fresh was clearanced down to $2.45!! So I used my -$1.00 on Colgate advanced and paid $1.45 for the toothpaste and got $3.99 in ECB's!!!!!! Moneymaker!!!! I was so excited, so be on the lookout…..

    • Kristi

      I found a coupon in my smart source for $1.50 off 1 Crest prohealth tooth paste. I also found a $1/1 scrubbing bubbles CVS coupon on the CVS website.

      • Amy J.

        Yeah, I found the Scrubbing Bubbles Q on the CVS website and I also had manuf. Q for $1 off, so i got the Scrubbing Bubbles Toilet Gel Discs for $1 per box…..sweet :-)

    • LilMissNikkiLane

      Ok so I just got back from CVS and bought 6 bags of the hershey easter candy (kisses and reeses eggs) but didn't get the $3 ecb for the easter candy. Didn't notice til i got home. Has anyone one else been able to get it?

      • katie

        it should tell you on your receipt how much you have spent and how much you need to spend to reach the $10 for candy. But even if you got the $1.97 bags, you would have spent over $10, so maybe the ECB will be a part of the quarterly ones we get. ???

        • LilMissNikkiLane

          Yeah i looked on the receipt and it didn't mention it. Oh well. Still a great price for bags of candy!

      • Suemh

        I got this ECB today. I had previously bought 2 99¢ bags of Gold Emblem candy. Today I bought 3 bags at of Easter Candy at 1.97 each and 2 more bags of Gold Emblem candy. According to the bottom of my receipt I still need 13¢ but the ECB printed.

    • zombiemommy

      Has anyone else found the StayFree pads lately. I want to do the monthly deal before the end of the month (and actually got a cvs coupon in the scanner to make the free pads after ecb deal sweeter..

      I can't even find the shelf tags latey.

    • michaelene

      My CVS in GA did have the Dawn Renewal soap for .96 so I got it free with my coupon!!!

    • erikascats

      My CVS (Tampa area) had the advertised 3-day candy special items priced at 2/3.00 or 1.50 each instead of 1.97. Even better with the coupon!

    • luvthat48

      I have not read all of the comments, so I apologize if this has already been mentioned! The ECB deal with Ban deodorant, my store in NC has some on clearance (75% off) so I bought two of them just because they were cheap ($0.82 each) and I got the $2 ECB – so I made money on that deal!

    • Dianna

      Does anyone know if I can use the Covergirl Face Product BOGO coupon on the Gover Simply Ageless foundation at CVS?

      • Teresa

        yes! I bought the Simply ageless foundation Sunday with the bogo coupon.

    • johnsbrownsugar

      Does anyone know if you can combine ECB's from two different accounts? I am kind of new at this so thanks in advance for your help.

      • joyfullysaving

        I don't think so, The Register will beep at you. I tried it once and it didn't work for me, but sometimes people get away with some crazy things at stores. Like I had a cashier let me use 2 Manuf coupons on one item, because she liked how organized I was. So hey ask your cashier, they can only tell you NO… Happy shopping

    • Allison

    • Caredoll

      Stayfree has a $2 off coupon. Our store sells them for $3.99, and you get $2 ECB. So that makes them free! The coupon states that there is a limit one per purchase/per customer and it has to be on a regular-priced item. Not sure if ECB promotions count as “sale” price. But I thought I’d try it! http://www.stayfree.ca/sampling/en/coupon-print.asp

      • Hey there,

        This is a coupon for canada only.

    • Did my CVS run last evening and got 2 Covergirl $10 make up, Crest rinse, Colgate, Ester C, for $2.20 OOP with 8.99 in ECBs for next week. That is a 95% savings. I LOVE CVS!

    • Rebecca

      If anyone is buying Zyrtec at cvs this week. Get 2.00 cvs coupon off their website(makes it 5.99

    • Snowski824

      Went today and got the Colgate, 1 Kleenex, 3 Dawn Hand Renewals, 1 Regular Dawn and a Cadbury Egg for .52 cents with 3.99 ECB for later. If you have the home made simple book from last time you can get the hand renewal for free.

    • Lucy

      GREAT Pampers Deal

      If you scan your card on that red CVS machine, you get a coupon “$2 off $10 baby items”. You also get this coupon once you buy diapers.

      Pampers Cruisers Jumbo Pack $8.97
      Johnson's Buddy Bar $1.19

      $2 off $10 baby item purchase
      $2 off Cruisers or $1.50 off Easy-Ups or other coupon
      $1 off any Johnsons product

      Due: $5.17 – $6.17 depending on coupon used
      Get back: $3 ECBs

      That makes diapers $2.17 – $3.17 a pack plus you get a free buddy bar!!! You can do that over and over again in 3 transactions.That $2/$10 coupon prints out every day, also look on your receipt to see if it's there. :)
