      I tried the CVS thing this week for the first time and am totally HOOKED!! I got $30 worth of stuff for $5 oop!! Thanks Jenny for ALL you do! You have made couponing fun for me where it used to be a hassle.

    • Laura

      How is the Listerine and Reach free? I only see a Register Rewards deal that even with coupons would be a few dollars. Thanks! I just discovered your site and loved the Kroger match-ups.

    • Emily

      One of my receipts printed a Huggies wipes coupons – can I combine that at CVS with a manufacturer’s coupon?

    • Jenn

      I got one of those Huggies coupons as well and was wondering the same thing.

    • Emily

      Jenn – I went ahead and tried it on my lunch break today and it worked fine – ended up with the tub of wipes for $1, so not bad!

      The CVS like-free school supplies are really slim pickings already this morning! Went buy two stores and didn’t find any of the pens. Did get a few notebooks and rulers and glue. Didn’t see the 5″ scissors either place – not even a space for them.

    • Susan

      The scissors at the store I went to (State Park Rd, Greenville) were with the paints, chalk, and markers, not the school supplies. Yesterday, none of the deals were marked on the shelves so there was a big supply.

    • Erika

      So if you have to get a raincheck on stuff at CVS, will the ECB print out when you are able to purchase?

      • Jenny

        You will get the ECB’s when you use the raincheck even if it is 5 years from now (they never expire).

    • Emily

      Thanks, Susan! I will look more closely when I stop at one more store tonight! I plan to donate most of these other school supplies but can definitely use the scissors myself!

    • Lindsay

      I bought the Tylenol as suggested, but the $2.50 coupon mentioned did not print with my receipt..Should I contact the store or just chalk it up to bad timing?

      • Jenny

        The CVS receipt coupons are not based on deals, they just print randomly for people. Sorry for the confusion on that one. I was more listing it in case others had gotten it on their receipts in the past week.

    • Lindsay

      Dont know if CVS Rain Checks can be used at ANY store, but I am in GA and have a couple of rainchecks for (2) Glues, (2) Pens, & (2) Scissors that I can’t use. I was able to find the stuff at a different store near my office in Atlanta. If they can be used anywhere and you need them, I will be happy to mail them. just let me know.

    • Melissa C.

      My CVS’s were cleaned out of the school supplies, all I got was rulers.

      At the first CVS I asked for rainchecks and got them, no problem

      At the other CVS I asked for rainchecks and was told they can’t give rainchecks on 3-day sales…that’s from Corporate.

      Funny Corporate only told one person that law.

    • Melissa C.

      Lindsay, I would like your rainchecks if you haven’t already promised them to someone else. My email is missi@bellsouth.net. Thanks

    • Caitlyn

      Melissa C.,

      it’s true, CVS isn’t supposed to give out rainchecks for 2 or 3 day sales-i’m an employee there and i got chewed out for giving someone a raincheck once for a two day sale by corporate.
      any store giving out rainchecks for those sales aren’t going to get the credits for them.

    • I found a site ONE time that had meijer discount coupons, but have not
      been able to locate the site again. It had wonderful coupons. I
      went to hotcouponworld.com where I though it came through but could
      not locate them.

      Can anyone tell me how to locate the meijer coupons? Thank you.

    • Another question. Can someone help me subscribe to the All Magazine.?
      I tried and got as far a check out and it would not let me check out.
      I wanted the two year subscription.

      Thank you.

    • chantel

      Can anyone tell me what the PG beside the coupons available? I am new to this site and love it!!!


    • Brooke G

      Does anyone have the $2 off of Listerine coupon coming up on coupons.com in their area? I wanted to see if I could get a zip code for it if possible.
      Thank you :-)

    • Jenn

      Lindsay – I received rainchecks for several of the free school items at one CVS, and went to another CVS today and used the rainchecks from the other store. No problem at all.
