Well, since it seems that IAHD is away from the boards. I thought I would start a thread for this week since the week already started! I don't mean to step on anyone's toes.

Here is what I did today. Not great, I lost some ECB, but got mostly useful items instead of just stockpiling.

Store 1:

Skippy Peanut butter 1.50
Tide HE detergent 5.99
Tide HE detergent 5.99
Excedrin Migraine 1.99
French's Mustard .66
Kraft BBQ Sauce .66
Sierra Mist 1.69
Sierra Mist Free
-.35 Tide (whoopie!!)
-.50 French's printable
-1.69 Sierra Mist printable
-2.00 Excedrin migraine printable
-5.00 ECB
-8.97 ECB
Subtotal -.03
IL 8.0% tax .14
IL 1.75% tax .08
Total .19

And I got back $4 for the Tide. I lost a few ECB, but that usually happens when I buy detergent.


Store #2

Excedrin Migraine 1.99
French's Mustard .66
Kraft BBQ .66
Aquafresh Extreme Clean 2.99
Aquafresh Extreme Clean 2.99

Thanks for the info, Maggie. :)
I just did a couple of the Revlon nailpolishes and the Tide detergent. I also lost quite a few ECB's on the detergent but I needed it so I guess I can live with that. ;)

I had a pretty good trip on Sunday. I am going back today for Tide and will need to use some ECBs. I am frustrated that I bought my limit of Tums when I was able to get the printable coupon for $2.25 just yesterday. Oh well! I shouldn't be greedy!

Here is my scenario:
4 bottles of Sierra Mist $3.58
2 Tums QuickPack $9.38
2 Revlon Nailcolor $7.98


1 .75 Tums coupon
1 1.00 Tums coupon
1 2.00 Revlon coupon
1 1.00 Revlon coupon
1 BOGO Sierra Mist coupon (1.69)
1 $4/20 coupon
10.00 ECB

Total OOP: .61

ECBs earned: 15.38



Thank you to the regular posters who keep this information available to us!!:hug:

I lost a good bit of ECBs this week too but I had several about to expire.

I did the Lipton deal and the Tide. My store was out of the mustard but I got a rain check. I also got 2 nail polishes and 5 bottles of BBQ sauce.

Ok, I wanted you all to see what I got and tell me if you think I am doing good at this.

today, I had 10.00 in ECBs I could use
I purchased
2 Lipton Tea Bags
1 Hellmans mayo
2 skippy pb
1 palm liquid
1 excedrin migraine
2 post cereals (BOGO)
Rolo (not needed but on sale and a treat)
1 BC fudge brownie mix

I had 10.00 in ECBs
I had the 2.00 coupon for Excedrin.



I paid 12.37 OOP. I saved 31.97.I earned 3.00 ECB, 1.00 ECB, $4 off $20, save $3 on any 2 body washes, free $25 gift card with new prescription.

If I do the prescription thing, how do I get the gift card? Will it be printed on the receipt or like a real gift card?

THANKS!!!!!

Has anyone done the gift card offer? I am thinking you spend $50 and get $75, I can use the AmEx myself for future purchases. I have$16 in ECBs if they let you use them and a $4/$20 which I doubt I can use but I am thinking if I spend $30 I get $75. Am I missing something? Seems better than getting ECBs as I can use the AmEx anywhere I want.

I know it seems like a good deal, but I'm pretty sure you can't use ECBs for any gift card purchases. I know one time I tried to use my CVS gift cards I had gotten from a prescription to buy and itunes gift card and they wouldn't let me.

Okay went to CVS this eve to get prescription refilled (1 of our pharmacists will let you use a coupon for a GC if you do not transfer it :thumbsup2 ) got my med for free (w/ promo from drug manufacturer, they paid my copay) and got a $25 GC. Then I bought:

3 80 oz bottles of Cheer (on clearance for $1.75 ea)
1 box of the oxy zit pads (for DD15 :rotfl2: ) makes my skin ache just holding the bottle for $5.79
1 pkg of Ben Gay heat therapy pads (? or whatever they're called) 25% bonus box too $6.99
2 reg sized kit kat caramel candy bars .20 ea on clearance

total before tx 18.03
- $5 off $15 coupon
- $3 off $10 CRT
- $1 oxy zit manu coupon
- $1 Ben Gay coupon on box
- $1 cheer coupon X 3 on the bottles (only good at CVS)
- $2 ECB
- $3 ECB
OOP incl tx was .43
and I got back $1 ECB on the oxy zit pads and $2 cash for what was an 'old' ECB sign for the bengay patches.
So basically I'm out $2 in ECBS, but all in all, I thought I did pretty well. Esp with the $25 GC.

Tomorrow I'm picking up a new asthma inhaler (current one is about to expire on the actual inhaler) and I found a $30 GC competitor coupon in our local grocery store ad. I think right now I've got at least $250 in GCs to CVS. Too bad WDW doesn't take CVS GCs :rotfl2:

I've gotten at least $250 in GCs from prescriptions. Just this week DS was put on an antibiotic and one day later he broke out in a rash. Now we have another antibiotic and a cream for the rash= $75 in GCs. While I hate that he is sick (although he isn't in pain or miserable) I make the most of it with the GCs. I'm waiting until 6/1 to start using these. This week is not really good CVS week for me.

I can't believe i have not shopped at CVS this week - nothing looks good - i'll wait till Sunday! I did however go into CVS to use the free 10 prints coupons that came w/the 3/15 coupon from the newsday paper! I have about 6 of the coupons to use up so i keep going to different CVS's to get my free 10 photos - which is great since i have alot to develop from Memorial Day Weekend.

If you have Revlon coupons, you could always go get free nailpolish.:wizard:

All I bought this week was the nailpolish & a few things we needed. The deals really haven't been that great!:worried:

If anyone is interested in desserts, I did buy the Warm Delights since they are a monthly (and they never went on sale this month). I They were $1.99 each and I had $1 off 2 coupon and then got the $1 ECB for buying two. So they were $1 each which is a good price. Plus, if you run out of M&Ms or Easter candy, they are a nice chocolatey snack!popcorn::

Do the Pepsi's show up on the bottome of your receipt? I did this deal once and can't find a receipt showing which card I did them on. Today a friend gave me a coupon to buy 4 and get 1 free. What a deal...2 free. But the coupon expires tomorrw as does the sale.

My turn for an ECB question...

I got brave tonight and asked for a raincheck for the two items I wanted that they were out of. The cashier started to write the first one and called for help on the second one. Out came the "shift manager" and explained to the cashier and I that you can not write rainchecks for ECB products. She told me just to come in next week, buy the product and than go online and enter the transaction number off my receipt. She said that would generate the ECBs to be emailed to me. I told her I appreciated the info but didn't understand how CVS would know my intent was to purchase the items during the sale and not just that I never got there during the sale since it would be expired by the time I went online. She replied "they just do it". I must have looked really baffled as she than said "let's comprise" and turns to the cashier and asks her to give me a $5 voucher. I am thinking this is fine, I will take $5 off my next order plus my other coupons. She rings in something, puts the key in the register and hands me $5 cash:cool1: :banana: (If they had the items, I would have spent $14 and received $7 ECB)

I am certainly not complaining but wondering what is the normal raincheck policy.

My stores always writes it for the item and then for price writes "Free after ECB" or whatever the price is after ECB.

So how does that work when you redeem them? If it says free after ECB, do you ever actually get the ECBs or do they just ring it up and take off the ECBs since they will no longer print?

They change the price to $0.00 when they ring it in the transaction. So it costs me $0 and I don't get any actual ECBs back.

I took my first turn CVS'ing yesterday. I've been lurking but hadn't jumped in since the CVS is a drive, but now I have to go past it everyday to take the kids to their new school. Thanks to everyone for all the threads!!! I think I'm hooked

Yesterday I got

Excedrin $1.99 less the $2 manufacturers coupon
Aquafresh $2.99 minus $1.00 manufactures coupon

Total after tax was $2.33 and I got $2.99 in ECB. So they basically paid me 66 cents to shop there :)

I went tonight and finished up the Skippy PB and Ragu deal. I also got DD a bottle of Cetaphil lotion (the monthly ECB one). Her dermatologist recommended this brand and she has been wanting it. So I gave in today since it was the last day of the monthly deals.
