The $5 ECB combined with the Spring Fling Gift card rebate with the American Express gift cards makes that a GREAT deal. Look for the Spring Fling rebate form at your local CVS. When you purchase any 2 AMEX gift cards (must be at least $50 each to get the $5 ECB) and you mail proof of purchase to get a free Spring Fling gift card worth $25 which can be used at Best Buy, Borders, SpaFinder and Fandango. (limit 2 per household).

Is the Dawn dish soap 2/$2 after the ECB or before?

If before, then the soap is 2/$1 and if you have coupons, its a pretty good deal.

Although I am overflowing with Palmolive from a Walgreens deal.

If you mean the dawn dishsoap, since its $1 when you buy 2, you should be able to buy 4 sets of 2 and get the ECB.

If you mean manufacturer's coupons, then as a rule, no. I know that a couple of people have been able to use them the day after they expire if they ask because their store hasn't sent in their coupons for the week, but YMMV on that one.

My CVS usually starts their sales early, like by noon on Saturday. I'm going to try to use all my coupons on Saturday before they expire. Even if your store doesn't start the sales early, those coupons all come from the P&G insert, which will be in the paper on Sunday. Most likely it will have all of those coupons so either way, you won't be out of luck.

Your store will probably start the sales by Saturday evening. Try to go on May 31 before they expire. If your store has a price scanning machine, you can price check an item that should be on sale June 1 and see if its already the sale price on the 31st. That's how I usually tell if the next week's sales are started already.

If you have a 24 hour store you can always go at midnight and use them. Our store usually has the sales pre-loaded Saturday night.

I have a 24 hr CVS right near me, so I could easily go in Saturday night at say 9:00 p.m. and if these items are on sale will my bucks back print also, because next week if you spend $20 on pampers and I could get back $10 and I only need wipes.

Depends on when your store loads the sales. Ask the manager what time the next week's deals will print.

We need diapers here. Just ran out from the last Huggies deal and tried the CVS brand that was on sale last week B2G1 and they are "ok" but don't quite do the trick at night for my little guy. Pampers actually fit him the best and I have several coupons so we will be stocking up!

Oh, these are the famous Playskool totes. Watch out: you get addicted to buying them. :laughing: They used to be like only 60 cents!:teacher:

Oh, and I'm in need of a CVS miracle! pixiedust: We have to lure Smiller back to CVSing. She let all her ECBs expire:eek: (says that's OK since I let my Pepcid rebate exprire) and I keep trying to get her back in the game. :hug:

I'm going to try this tonight so I can use my coupons, hopefully my store has the deals going already!

#1
1 Charmin 4.99
1 Bounty 5.99
1 Duracell 2.99
1 Dawn $1
-5/15
-.25 Charmin
-.25 Bounty
-.75 Duracell
-.50 Dawn
Total: 8.22, pay w/ ECB

#2
2 Febreeze 800 mL 7.98
2 Febreeze 500 mL 5.00
2 Dawn $2
-5/15
-5.00 Febreeze BOG500mL free
-1 Febreeze
-1 Dawn
Total: 2.98, pay w/ ECB, earn 5 ECB and 1 ECB

#3
1 Charmin 4.99
1 Duracell 2.99
1 Dawn $1
Something else to get up to $15
-5/15
-.25 Charmin
-.75 Duracell
-.25 Dawn
Total: 9.00, pay w/ ECB, earn 10 ECB and 1 ECB


I didn't see anything other than these deals that seemed good this week...anyone else have any ideas? I already used all my Chex coupons at Walgreens this week. I guess I could get the Whitman's sampler (3.97, I have $2 coupons) or the Gillette Fusion ($4 after ECB, there are $4 coupons coming out this weekend).

If my store starts the June deals early then I'll get a head start on those, but I doubt that will happen. :worried: Anyone have any luck with starting monthly deals early?

You can not use them to pay prescription co-pays or buy gift cards. I thought I read somewhere they could not be used for cigarettes or alcohol but not sure about those.

I just got back also, had lots of coupons to use before midnight. I did the bounty/charmin deal and also bought two frebeze. I had one coupon for b1/g1 for the frebeze and had three coupons for the bounty and Charmin. Total out of pocket was .53 and I recevied $10 back.

Same trip, different transaction I did 7 wipes and had $6 in coupons, I also had a 5 off 25 and also bought two kids listerine thinking the june monthly's would print, but they didn't so I returned them after the transaction was over. Total about of pocket was $12, but I received $5 back in ECB's. So my wipes were $1 box....not too bad.

Will go back tomorrow for June monthly's.

YES! We have to do something. She didn't even go get the free nailpolish this week. :worried: I almost drove to her house & took her CVS card to go shopping for her. It makes me crazy!:crazy2:

Ooooh! That's a great idea. Too bad my DD just had her last day of school last week. But they might be nice little gifts... :)

When Lana Jae finds out they're on sale I'm sure she'll stock up. They might be addicting like the playskool totes.:laughing:

Whoever asked this question somewhere else: Essence of beauty-- this is a CVS brand. You can use your $/$$ CVS brand on this.:thumbsup2

Hi everyone! I just wanted to share my CVS deal because it turned out so much better than I thought and I am so proud of it! :goodvibes Next week's prices start here on Saturday afternoon and we get our coupons on Saturday too.

2 Natural Instincts Hair Color @ $5.99 ea. (on sale 6/1 from $9.49)
1 Nestea $1.49
- $4.00 Natural Instincts Coupon (in 6/1 paper)
- $9.49 B1G1 Free Natural Instincts (expires 5/31)

Total $0.13 OOP

The B1G1 took off the normal price, so I got two free hair color and a free drink. I had no idea it was going to do that, I'm so excited! It was like the perfect storm of sales, and for something I use frequently. :cool1:

I want to start doing this so I'm trying to follow your examples below but somehow, i'm not totally getting it....

Can someone please explain 'monthlys' to me? Is that what prints out at the bottom of the receipt? And what would you suggest for my first trip? Something easy, please lol (math has never been my strong suit LOL)

Another thing for the Bounty deal...yesterday I bought 1 Bounty (5.99), 1 Charmin (4.99) and 1 Duracell (2.99) for a total of 13.97. I was going to buy 1 Charmin and 1 Duracell in my next transaction in order to get up to 20.00, BUT I looked at my receipt before I did. It said:

Bounty, Spend 20 Get 10 EB
Amount Toward this Reward.......13.97
Amount Needed to earn Reward...5.83

:confused: Those numbers don't add up 20! They add up to 19.80 instead. I thought maybe it was a glitch but it would work well for me b/c I could buy just 1 Bounty instead of buying 1 Charmin and 1 Duracell in order to get up to 20.00. I tried it on my next transaction (bought only 1 Bounty 5.99), and the ECB printed.

MAYBE the manufacturer is finally accounting for all the products ending in .99, making it hard to meet the total without going far over it. I have no idea if this will work for everyone but I just wanted to share my experience.

I am so totally new to this but I have a question. I don't have my coupons built up like some of the pro's. So I was looking and found 3.00 off 1 item (shampoo) and they are having it on sale for B1G1 free. So would I use 2 coupons to get it totally free or use only one coupon and pay the difference? There is no ECB's back on this but thought it was a great deal. TIA for any help.

You can not use them to pay prescription co-pays or buy gift cards. I thought I read somewhere they could not be used for cigarettes or alcohol but not sure about those.

Is that strictly CVS gift cards or all gift cards...ie the Am Ex and Spring Fling Offer?

The store I shop in the manager told me the CVS banages for the monthly are a limit of three not two. Not sure why or if the home office will catch it. But I did three and it now shows limit reached.:cool1:

I donot see the Gilette deal in my CVS weekly, but i see the sign up at the store - is it a weekly or monthly?

lisa

Gilette is a weekly. I also got 3 bandaids before it said Limit Reached.

I went back and got 2 more Dawns, 2 Oral B toothbrushes (Monthly), 1 chex mix, 1 Secret (weekly), and 1 more bandaid, used a $3/15 and 2 Q($1 chex mix and $1 Secret from todays paper) paid with 10.98 ECB, paid 14 cents OOP and got back 10.98 ECB!

I think to get the best value for your coupn 4/20 - your total order should come to as close to 20.00 as possible maybe 20.50! just do more transactions

The toothbrushes I found with the regular toothbrushes. It is on the back page of the monthly book (found at CVS). The Gilette razor is found on page 10 of this weeks ad, top middle. I had a $4 coupon from todays paper and you get $4 ECB back on this.

For me it's on page 10. It shows the Gillette Fusion Phenoms at the top center of the page and underneath is on the left is the Braun PocketGo Shaver ECB deal and on the right is the $9.99 Venus on sale (no ECB deal). Those 3 items are highlighted in a yellow box.

Anyway, if I make my very first trip tomorrow, with no real coupons, what should I do to get started??:surfweb:

Personally, I would buy my 3 bandaids, 1.99 each, pay 5.97 and get 5.97 back in ECB.

Next day (or whenever) buy 2 Smart Rinses (you can google "printable Smart Rinse coupons) and it will bring you to a site where you can print 2 $1 coupons) if you have children......I do but this may not work for you if its something you dont want. But if it is, buy 2 Smart Rinses and 2 of the Dawn dishwashing liquid. Total will be 8.98, minus your $2 in coupons, now total is 6.98. To pay, use your 5.97 that you got back in the first bandaid transaction and add $1 to it. THEN your receipt will print out 6.98 ECB for the Smart Rinse and $1 ECB for the Dawn.

Find an Oral B toothbrush double pack next. It is 6.99. Pay for it with your 6.98 ECB from above and pay 1 cent or so. It will print back 6.99 ECB

So you are $7 out of pocket (OOP) but now you have a 6.99 ECB and a $1 ECB so you are actually $1 ahead. If you have Dawn coupons of coupons for the toothbrushes, that makes it better.

Keep "rolling" them like this. Usually you will get a $3 off a $15 purchase on the bottom of the receipt also to help you out a bit and lower your OOP.

You might want to start with the deals that are free after ECB. There is a couple in the monthly ad. It will cost you up front but will give you a fair amount of ECB to start.
Also go to Iheart cvs dot com and see print of the printable cvs coupons.

Okay, I am new to this whole CVS thing and I have a ton of questions. I am playing out a scenario in my head and I have to ask the experts if I am on the right track..

Okay here it goes

Pampers wipes $2.99 each (buy $20 to get $5 ecb minus) $1.00Q = $19.00 and $5 ECB
Gillettes Fusion razor $9.99 minus $4.00 Q and $4.00ECB back
Contour meter is onsale for $30.00 with a $30.00 rebate, I have a $30.00 Q ---Can I use the Q and then get the $30 rebate?---
Pepsi 3/$9.99
Secret Flawless $3.99 minus $1.00 Q = $2.99

So IF I am doing this right it will come out something like this..

Wipes $20.00
Razor $ 9.99
Meter $30.00
Pepsi $ 9.99
Secret $3.99
___________
TL $73.80

I have the following Coupons
$30.00 meter
$ 1.00 Secret
$ 4.00 Razor
$ 1.00 wipes
____________
$36.00

I have

$4 off with $20
$3 off with $15
______

$7.00

Then last but not least my ECB

$3.00

Total coupons/ECB
$46.00

so

$73.80
-46.00
______
$27.80

I will earn $10 ECB from Pampers ($5) Secret ($1) and Gillette razor ($4.00)

Do I have this right?? Also what about the rebate?? Could I make $30.00 on top of this??

If have done anything wrong please let me know. Thanks!:thumbsup2

Stacking seems to depend on the cashier but there is no limit on how many orders you can check out, so just do it in small pieces. You can than even use your ECBs from the first order if you are new and don't have any to roll in

First, you won't get the rebate for the monitor. You will only get it free. If you need it (or want to donate it) that's great, if not, its not worth it because its not a moneymaker.

Second, I would break your order up into a few transactions. Depending on which coupons you have (like a $4 off $20), I would do transactions up to that amount. So get what you can for, say, $20.50 and use the $4/$20 coupon. Then do another transaction with a $4/$20. That way you saved $8 off $40. Plus you can use the ECB from the first order to help pay for the second.

Third, its YMMV on whether you can use both the $4/$20 and the $3/$15 on your $45 order. Some places let you, most will not. Especially since most stores seemed to have received a memo about only allowing one $/$$ coupon per order.

Is the secret flawless some special deoderant? I haven't heard of it, but I probably wouldn't pay $1.99 for deoderant. But that might be because I have several sticks that I have gotten free. If you have the coupons, it might be better to do the Speed stick deal that is BOGOF. If you had 2 of the $1 off coupons, then you could get 2 sticks for .99.

But, you really thought your order out and it sounds like you are catching on!!

I think the Pampers deal is a weekly deal. You can buy the packs of diapers 1 at a time. When you reach the $20 mark you will get your ECB. The bottom of your receipt will tell you how much you need to spend to get to your goal.

You guys are awesome and i'm excited to go to CVS today! :worship:

Hey lisa, can you please explain the 'roll over' concept? Does that mean they took them from your DHs card and put them on yours? Because DH and i both have cards that we've used occasionally (before I discovered this thread!)

In the past i've used some of the ECB coupons printing out but is there anything else that will have 'carried over' from that shopping? Or will it expire? Or is there anything i should be doing regarding it?

TIA!

Rolling over means that you take your ECBs that you have, and spend them on things that generate ECBs so you walk out of the store with a bag of stuff, spend practically nothing (hopefully under $1) and get new ECBs in about the same amount that you spent. :teacher:

There is a new $3/$15 coupon exp 6/14

Just a warning, this site is SLOW, even got a few "problem loading page" but it did work.

Copied from http://www.moneysavingmom.com/money_saving_mom/2008/06/cvs-new-315-cou.html

Here's how to get your coupon:

::Go here (https://www.thebeaconjournal.com/BJD/Freetrial.aspx) to sign up for your free two-week trial to The Beacon Journal (it's a simple process and requires only your name, email, mailing address, etc.--no payment info needs to be given).

::Confirm your subscription by clicking on the link in your email.

::Download the June 1, 2008 edition. You'll need to click on the arrow and it will take a little while to download.

::Go to page A9.

::Select and highlight the $3/$15 coupon to print. And there you have your very own $3/$15 coupon to use at CVS!It's good through June 14, 2008.

This coupon can be used legally by anyone who signs up for their own free subscription to this newspaper and downloads their own coupon. There are no restrictions on it besides the usual restriction that it can only be used once per transaction, however, each individual store can choose to limit the usage of it to one per customer.

Did the CVS/ECB for the first time this weekend. Definetly shouldn't have brought my 18 month old with me as he got impatient. But let me know how I did if you don't mind.

I did the first transaction to "acquire" ECB's and then the second transation I used the just acquired ECB's.

1st Transaction:
2 Dawn DishLiquid 2/2.00 - earned 1ECB plus I had a .25 coupon
5 Ultrasoft Charmin (9 rolls each) for 4.99 a piece - earned 10ECB
1 Secret w/Olay 3.99 - earned 1ECB plus I had 1.00 coupon

I also had 4.00 off if I purchase 20.00 or more at CVS so I had 5.50 in total coupons and earned total of 12ECB for a subtotal of 25.44.

2nd Transaction:
2 Cans of Pringles for .88 cents each
1 Venus razor with 5 cartridges on sale for 9.99 w/card - plus I had a 2.00 coupon
1 CVS ecotrin 300 count for 13.99

I used my 12ECB and the 2.00 coupon for the venus - my subtotal came out to 11.74. **I realized after I had already purchased this that I had a 3.00 off 10.00 or more in CVS products but I didn't use it as I thought the ecotrin was on sale for less than 10.00. I got this coupon through an automatic coupon "box" they had in the store - just had to scan ecb card.

Ok - so outside of taxes I got:
2 Dawn (11oz each)
5 Packs of Ultra Charmin TP (9 rolls each)
1 Deodorant
2 Pringles
1 new "shaver" and 5 cartridges
1 Bottle of CVS ecotrin

Subtotal of = 37.88

Thoughts?

So within my normal errands today, i went to two cvs stores.
Please critique and give me pointers:

First transaction:

3 Pepsi (9.99) - no ECB but on sale and we needed
2 - Dawn (1.00 each)
1- aquafresh - 2.99 ( 2.99 ECB)
2 - M & Ms (1.77 on sale and YUMMY;) )
1 - case water (2.97)
2 - colgate toothpaste (2.99 buy 1 get 1 free)
---------
coupons:

2 - 25 dawn
1 - $1 m & m
1 - .75 colgate
1 - .75 colgate
1 - $3 CVS coupon

got back $2.99 ECB (aqua fresh) and $1 ECB (with nothing named?)

then stopped at another cvs for
2nd transaction:

1 - listerine 3.49 (computer wouldn't let me print coupon, grrr)
1 - bandaids 1.99 (didn't have more - next time rain check?!)
1 - M & M (what can i say? LOL $1.77 is a great price! LOL)
1 - zest 3 bar soap - $2.79

used 2.99 ECB and 1.00 ECP so 6.38 total.
got back:
$1.99 bandaids
$3.49 listerine
$1.00 zest soap

So how did i do? Did i really save - or will i now? What would you have done differently? What would you do next?

I'm not sure if i really accomplished anything, but i can see how i 'MIGHT' be able to.....!!

Thanks, you guys are great!

Hi everybody, am back from sunny FL - I posted in the thread from 2 weeks ago - obviously have to get back in the swing of things, maybe the heat cooked my brain.

For the new people, you did great!.. but I would keep all my transactions just barely over the amount of your coupon if possible, so if you have a $4/20, try not to spend more than $20. You can take stuff out to your car and go back in usually - if the store is nice, then tell them up front that you are going to do several transactions to maximize your coupons and ECBs and not have to leave the store. If the store gets weird about coupons, do one transaction at the pharmacy and one at the front.

If you need something and it's a decent price, don't worry about your out-of-pocket costs. Most of use buy things we don't need that are free after ECB (and use coupons when possible) to build ECBs.

Aahhhh:confused:

Something went wrong with my CVS trip

I bought another AmEx gift card for the ECB and Spring Fling offer. First off, I didn't get my ECBs but didn't notice until I left. The offer reads: "$5 ECB wyb (2) American Express Gift Cards of $50 or more" I bought 2 $25 certs, sounds like maybe I was supposed to buy 2 $50? Anyone know? Yesterday, they let me use ECBS or my $5 off coupon toward the $3.49 fee. Not sure which one but I know I left with a gift card and a bag of stuff for $26.29, the fee is on my receipt and I didn't pay it all. The manager told me the ECBs were good toward the fee but not the card itself (which I understand).

Well, I wanted to pay with my $25 Am Ex card today. The cashier called the manager for help with it while was figuring out my correct ECBs to give her. By the time the manager gets up there, she has scanned my manf. coupons and is working on my ECBs. I have it down to giving up $.02 and owing $25.07 on my order:woohoo: Well the ECBs start beeping now. The manager looks at my order and says, that she can do an override but would give me $1.37 for my $4.99 ECB - no thank you:confused3 She says that is because you can't use ECBs and manf. coupons on the same product:confused: I tried to give an example to be sure I understood, so I say the hair dye that is on sale (you all know my secret now) is on sale for $5.99, I have a $4.00 Mfg. coupon, and a $1.99 ECB, she says no, I can have the mfg. or the ECB :(

I gave up, paid the $31.xx and left. Than I was realized the $5 in ECBs were missing for the gift card.

Now that I have babbled, anyone know the story

Yes, I'm pretty sure you have to buy 2 $50 gift cards (total of $100) to get the ECB.

I'm sure that the AmEx gift cards need to be 2 $50 cards to get the ECB because I tried to see if it would work with 2 $25 cards first. Don't forget when doing this deal to get the rebate form for the Spring Fling $25 gift card when you purchase 2 American Express gift cards.

I went to CVS last two days to get my June deals. I have two $25 GCs from prescriptions to help build up ECBs. I have been a little disappointed by the smaller limits as it makes rolling ECBs harder.

Transaction #1:

Smart Rinse 3.49
Smart Rinse 3.49
Puffs with lotion .89
Puffs with lotion .89
Puffs with lotion .89
CVS Bandaids 1.99
CVS Bandaids 1.99
Kids soap bubbles 2.99

TOTAL: 16.62
-$3/15 Akron Beacon coupon
-$1.00 Smart Rinse
-$1.00 Smart Rinse

TOTAL: $11.62
ECBs earned: 10.96

I could have done better if DS didn't want bubbles, but even then it's a pretty good roll over. I really like the Puffs with lotion.

Transaction #2: (on DHs card)

CVS AA batteries bonus pack 10+2 $5.99
CVS AA batteries bonus pack 10+2 FREE
CVS AA batteries bonus pack 10+2 $5.99
CVS AA batteries bonus pack 10+2 FREE
Smart Rinse 3.49

TOTAL: $15.49
-$3/15 Acron Beacon coupon
-$2.50/10 CVS purchase
-$1.00 smart Rinse CP

TOTAL: $8.97
ECBs: $3.49 smart rinse

We really needed batteries and my CVS brand coupon was expiring, not sure how I could have done better with that one. so $5.49 OOP on this one for 48 batteries.

You can buy a gift card with a gift card, I did last night. The only thing is, you can not do it as two transactions in a row as they have a 4 hour activation period.

How is everyone getting the Beacon coupon to print properly? When I print the page it gets cut-off after the list of stores.....and if I shrink the page then the coupon is so tiny I can barely see the bar code. I tried highlighting just the coupon, but it does not work.

I click on the coupon to increase the size and print it that way. Hope that helps.

Also while shopping on Sunday a lady saw my coupon binder and came over to ask if she could look at it. She had read about them on the internet but had not seen one. She was so excited. She also told me some of our stores will take the 5/15 up to 2 weeks after the expiration date. I am going to give it a try today. If it works :cool1: if not I will whip out my 3/15.:hyper:

I see folks talk about having to go to different stores for different transactions although on the same date -why is that? When I did the CVS thing this past week I did two transactions - one to earn the ECB's and the second to redeem them - the lady said that was fine but is that really ok?

Also - was curious if you still earn ECB's if after coupons the total does not match the minimum total to earn ECB's - for example: This last week you had to purchase $20.00 of bounty, charmin or duracell to get 10ECB's. Now if I had purchased just $20.00 of those products AND used my coupons (including CVS provided ones) would I still have earned the 10ECBs?

It's okay to do several transactions in one store, I usually don't because it draws too much attention. Lets say a district mgr. feels that too many $/$$ coupons are being used at that store in a given time frame, and you are using one per transaction.. the manager and shift leads get a lecture about $/$$ coupons and the next time you go to the store, you are told "one per customer." Then you have to put back all the items for your second transaction or suck it up and pay without the coupon and the store remembers you for being the person they just got a lecture about. It's a lot less stress for me to make rounds on Sunday between a few stores and then maybe again later in the week and do one transaction per store. This way I can adapt to what is in stock too. Sometimes I will go twice on Sundays to the same store, once early in the day and once later (shift change). I've watched stores go from taking any and all coupons happily to nearly none after a district manager's visit.

As long as you buy the products listed and the amount required (if any), it doesn't matter how many mfg. and CVS coupons you use, you still earn the ECBs. Our ad this week didn't say to buy $20, it said 4 (but only Charmin and Bounty). My total before coupons was less than $20, then I used a $5/15 and 4 Bounty coupons and I still earned a $10 ECB. Others have reported that it isn't really $20 (for those whose ads say $20), it's $19.80, so they must've set the registers to accept below $20 to make up for the different regional ads this week. We don't have batteries as part of our deal.

CVS seems to be doing more regional ads, my ad is completely different than others posted online, and we don't have the AMEX deal here this week either.

Finished up a trip at CVS.
This has probably been posted, but I was pleasantly surprised to receive $4 ECB for the Alavert that I had to buy. Didn't say I reached my limit. Anyone know what the Alavert limit is and if it is a weekly deal?

Picked up the SmartRinse. Cash Register beeped my Man Q. Cashier went ahead and pushed it through, but I'm guessing my days of using man q on the "free" items are limited if not over. :( Oh well, still great to get a freebie. I've been wanting to try the SmartRinse,too and almost bought some a couple of weeks ago.

Does CVS take internet coupons? I have found that the local Dierbergs (grocery chain) does not take internet coupons so I wasn't sure if CVS also was hesitant about those things? OT but does anyone know if their local Target takes internet coupons as well or for that matter their local wal-mart?

I don't know why the coupon beeped, but I don't think that your conclusion is correct. You are paying for the item, and a man Q is part of the payment. The "free" part is that you are getting an ECB back to use on a future purchase.

Try right clicking on the coupon and see if that helps. I can't remember. But a magniflying glass with a + inside it will increase the size. Sorry I could not help more.

Well, lots of stuff I want this week.

But, I only had $6 in ECBs and almost no coupons for the stuff I wanted. Don't know what happened to the smart rinse coupons as I remember cutting them out.

Anyway, here are my trips...not my all time greatest or anything but good stuff I really wanted at a reasonable price.

Trip 1
1 12pk diet sunkist $3.33
1 bounty 8 roll $5.99
3 pringles .88 x 3
3 Charmin 9 roll $4.99 x 3
3 CVS bandaids $1.99 x 3
2 CVS AA 10pk batteries $5.99BOGO
1 CVS napkins(needed napkins big time!!)
less $3/$10 coupon
less $6 ECB
$34.47 Oop but got back $10ECB for bounty/charmin and $5.97 ECB for bandaids

Trip 2
4 Chex mix 4 x $1
2 Tampax tampons 2/$12
2 smart rinse 2 x $3.49
2 Brut deodorant 2 x $4.69( I didn't realize the spray kind cost more...DH prefers it but I would have gotten the stick if I had noticed that at the time)
less $3/$10 coupon
less 3 x $1 chex coupons
less $15.97 ECBs from last transaction
Oop $11.06 got back $3ECB for tampons, $6ECB for Brut deodorant, $6.98 ECB for smart rinse.

So, $45 out of pocket which isn't great but lots of stuff for that money and I'm left with $15.98 in ECBs to get the rest of the stuff I want this week. Hope I can plan some better trips!

By the way. Got 3 of the limit 2 bandaids and also, I got 2 smart rinse thinking that was the limit but it does not say offer limit reached so I'll pick up another later this week.

The only limit that I am aware of is that our Jewel-Osco grocery stores have notices that they can not accept internet coupons for "free product." But for traditional $ off of purchase coupons, I've never had a problem.

I'm new to this, and my first visit was not all that great. :worried: I did save with the coupons:banana: , and I did get use the $4/20 coupon. Many things were out of stock:scared1: , which I think is what thru me off the most:headache: I only made $1.00 ECB. But I did get some good things on sale--and had coupons for some of those, so, it wasn't a complete bust.::yes::

Gonna try again this week, and get rainchecks this time for the things out of stock.

But my question is: is it possible to use the $4/20 coupon that was emailed to me, more than once?

Yes, you can keep using the $4/20 until it expires! just keep on printing...

lisa

I'm new to this, and my first visit was not all that great. :worried: I did save with the coupons:banana: , and I did get use the $4/20 coupon. Many things were out of stock:scared1: , which I think is what thru me off the most:headache: I only made $1.00 ECB. But I did get some good things on sale--and had coupons for some of those, so, it wasn't a complete bust.::yes::

Gonna try again this week, and get rainchecks this time for the things out of stock.

But my question is: is it possible to use the $4/20 coupon that was emailed to me, more than once?

Thanks!

OK I did 2 transactions previously and had $8.97 in ECB to spend. Here is what I did:

(2) Dawn Dish Liquid - $2
(1) Gilette Phantem Power Razor - $9.99
(2) Covergirl Aquasmooth Makeup - $8.99 (BOGO)
(1) CVS Nailpolish remover - $1.69 (DF said I had been saying I needed it and wouldn't take no for an answer :rotfl: )

Coupons:
$4/$20 CVS
$.25 off dawn
$1 off CG cosmetics
$1 off CG cosmetics (they let me use one on the free item!)
$4 off Gilette Razor

ECB used - $8.97 (from toothpaste a few weeks ago)

OOP: $4.06

ECB earned: $4 for razor and $1 for dawn.

I looked for the toothbrushes but couldn't find them... couldn't even find where they would be. Darnit we need new toothbrushes and they keep being out of stock when we look.

So with the $4/$20 coupons does the $20 need to be pretax? I am guessing yes since it only charged $.61 tax

Speaking of tax, our rate is 6.25% and I was only charged $.61 tax I was wondering how it was figured. It looks like it takes the purchase, subtracts the CVS coupon and ECB used and then taxes the rest BEFORE coupons then subtracts the coupons... is this right?

For all those that are just starting this cvs thing, to build up your ecb's, the first few weeks you should really concentrate on buying those items that you earn ecb's. Once you build up your ecb's then you can start adding some items that you "need". Even if you don't "need" the item - but its free after ecb's and say you have a coupon as well then they will be "paying" you to buy it! and you can always give the item away if you won't be using it!

Just read on another board that the Limit for the Oral b toothbrushes and S
martrinse are both 4! check your receipts - seems it just switched!

lisa

i have not done this yet - but i'm sure its true!

Is the Oral B in the monthly paper or is a secret monthly? I still haven't been able to find a "real" monthly and I'm trying to read the one on HCW. The smart rinse doesn't look like it is in the HCW monthly either unless I'm missing it. I bought the smart rinse today, but would like to do the Oral B tomorrow.

Any info?:goodvibes

Did anybody already mention the free chex mix?

It's on sale 5/$5 and there's a $1 off coupon here (http://print.coupons.com/couponweb/Offers.aspx?pid=13306&zid=iq37&nid=10) I printed 2 coupons and now it doesn't show the chex mix one for me anymore so hopefully it shows it for you guys on the link I just gave. If not, it's at www.coupons.com (http://www.coupons.com). 2 free chex mix for me!

never mind, it worked afterall :)

they had them at the 24 hour store ...I think you went there before when you went to the hospital.::yes:: they are on the top shelf across from the cosmetics:lovestruc
I found them at that store. I picked up 5 of them. I needed them so it was a good deal.

I click on the coupon to increase the size and print it that way. Hope that helps.

Also while shopping on Sunday a lady saw my coupon binder and came over to ask if she could look at it. She had read about them on the internet but had not seen one. She was so excited. She also told me some of our stores will take the 5/15 up to 2 weeks after the expiration date. I am going to give it a try today. If it works :cool1: if not I will whip out my 3/15.:hyper:

Janet if you read this it was nice to meet you.

There is a new $3/$15 coupon exp 6/14

Just a warning, this site is SLOW, even got a few "problem loading page" but it did work.

Copied from http://www.moneysavingmom.com/money_saving_mom/2008/06/cvs-new-315-cou.html

Here's how to get your coupon:

::Go here (https://www.thebeaconjournal.com/BJD/Freetrial.aspx) to sign up for your free two-week trial to The Beacon Journal (it's a simple process and requires only your name, email, mailing address, etc.--no payment info needs to be given).

::Confirm your subscription by clicking on the link in your email.

::Download the June 1, 2008 edition. You'll need to click on the arrow and it will take a little while to download.

::Go to page A9.

::Select and highlight the $3/$15 coupon to print. And there you have your very own $3/$15 coupon to use at CVS!It's good through June 14, 2008.

This coupon can be used legally by anyone who signs up for their own free subscription to this newspaper and downloads their own coupon. There are no restrictions on it besides the usual restriction that it can only be used once per transaction, however, each individual store can choose to limit the usage of it to one per customer.

I signed up for this trial and when I started to download the 6/1 edition it told me it would take 8 hours!

Needless to say I aborted that mission!

Still couponless here.....

I think I know what you're talking about. The link on HCW for the monthly book cuts off the last page, which is the one that has the Smart Rinse and the toothbrushes. Just make sure to buy the OralB CrossAction 2 pack...there are different OralB 2 packs but they don't say Cross Action so make sure to get the right ones.

I went to 2 CVS yesterday. Ours did not have the Chex Mix for $1, so that was a bummer. Also, where are you guys seeing the $5 ECB when you buy 2 American Express Gift Cards. I don't see it in the ads and there were no signs up. Is this a regional thing?

We're in a test area and that deal was last week. Last week we didn't have the Tide deal, but they did in FL and I bought one there and when I bought one here this week, it showed "offer limit reached" because of last week.

I am wondering if we can really buy the stuff that is in the other ads at the sale price, but I'm too chicken to chance it. I think I might scan a Chex mix to see if they show $1 here.

I am so sorry it is the 3/15. I think the link for the 5/15 is not there anymore. Sorry for the confusion. Although I do have some of the 5/15 left and my store is still taking them.

FYI I had already done the Dawn dish detergent 2 times and did it again today. Receipt still does not say limit reached. This may be a limit of 5 too.

I went to CVS today to do the Charmin deal. I got 1 pack of Charmin, 1 pack of Bounty, and 3 packs of the Duracell batteries (4 count). It came to just short of $20 (I think it should be $19.95) and I got the $10 ECB. I used a $4/20 too because I threw in one of the $1 chex mix to put me over the $20.

I don't think there is much else I am going to get this week. I haven't looked at the monthly deals yet, so maybe I'll start on those.

Walgreens is blah this week too.

Do the receipts print up-to-date Reward information? For example I have already bought 2 2-pak of oral B (seperate transations) for the buy 1 get 1 6.99 ECB. I thought the max quantity for month was 2. But this is what the receipt says:

Quantity Toward this reward 2
Quantity Needed to Earn reward 1

Does that mean I can do it one more time? I see a couple of the other ones show me Offer Limit Reached.

Also - is there a way to view these online?

I'm sure that the AmEx gift cards need to be 2 $50 cards to get the ECB because I tried to see if it would work with 2 $25 cards first. Don't forget when doing this deal to get the rebate form for the Spring Fling $25 gift card when you purchase 2 American Express gift cards.

My CVS manager told me the Spring Fling promo ended last week and he threw everything away - so no rebate form. Before I start calling all CVS's in my area, can anyone tell me if the Spring Fling rebate form should still be available? :( Thanks in advance...

I finally decided how I am going to do the Bounty/Charmin deal this week, and looks like I would get them FREE!!!

TRANSACTION #1

BOUNTY 8PK $4.96
ORAL B 2PK $6.99
SMART RINSE $3.49

TOTAL: 15.44

-$3/15 CP
-.35 CP

TOTAL: 12.09

ECBS EARNED: 10.48 (6.99 oral B, 3.49 Smart Rinse)

Once I repeat this 4 times (as the Smart Rinse and oral B limits are raised) I will earn an additional $10 ecb for the Bounty/Charmin. In the end the paper products cost me $6.44 (1.61 per transaction) and I get 10 ECB!!!

I hope this helps someone else thinking about the deal.

Here is some motivation for you. I went for about 3 weeks and was in CVS maybe 1 time. This week I check my ECB's and I had about $60 that were expiring yesterday. My stores will not take expired past 2 days so I had to do some imaginative shopping to roll those babies. It was a chore. So get going and don't you dare let those ECB,s expire.

I am in such a pickle over this one. I bought 2 packs of easy-ups and need to spend about $4 more to get the 5 ecb's. I have a case of wipes from Costco so I just cannot bring myself to buy any more wipes. So I am stuck getting one more pack of easy-ups. But, I have no more mfc coupons(they are all the $2/2 packs). I do have a catalina coupon from the grocery store. It is a mfc coupon but says the grocery store name. What are the odds CVS will try it and let me use it? Is it legit? Are there any links to easyups coupons online?

Also, is there a limit to the # of smartrinse coupons you can print from the listerine site? I think I printed some when the april or march deal was going on and now it won't let me print more. Can I reset my computer to get more? Any ideas?

I would show the cashier your catalina coupon when you enter the store and ask if you can use it. Most will take them and are much better about it if you ask first. One of my stores has a huge sign outside that says "we accept ALL competitor's coupons."

You can print 2 Smart Rinse coupons per computer. Some people say you can clear cookies and reprint, but coupons.com and smartsource.com have other hidden software that detects if the max number of coupons have been printed. If you have a friend or family member that will print for you, that's usually easiest. There is software that resets your computer to the last configuration each time you reboot and that will allow you to print after each time you reboot, I tried this once, it's a big pain and not worth it because you have to reinstall the coupon printer software each time.

My mom just got a postcard today from CVS. She lives in assisted living, so all her mail is at my address, including her CVS card.

The postcard is a "Introduce yourself to the pharmacist, shop and save $10.00" It's 10 off any purchase, but better yet, $ 5 extra bucks will print on your receipt on the first visit every month for the rest of the year. Total savings, $ 40.00.

I would assume she got this since she (me) shops at CVS but she hasn't had any prescriptions filled there since she went to assisted living.

Anyone else get this? All I get is stupid coupons for stuff I don't use.

So I've been searching our two local CVS stores all week hoping to do the Bounty/Charmin deal, and both stores have been completely out (thanks guy in front of me walking out with the last 3 Bountys :furious: ). Anyway, I've been getting rainchecks each time I'm there, and today the cashier tells me I can redeem the rainchecks when they have more Bounty/Charmin in stock and then call the CVS phone number on the back of my card and CVS will send me my $10 ECBs. Has anyone tried this? I'll be really excited if it works, but I'm skeptical right now...

Okay, I need some suggestions from the experts. What do you buy when your transaction is just a few cents short of a limit? I have just started CVS'ing. And a few of the transactions I did, I was using a $3 off $15 coupon but my total was just a few cents short of $15. I ended up grabbing a candy bar for .79:scared1: . I couldn't find anything cheaper(of course this was right at the register). What have you found that may be around .30-.50 cents?

Some of the items I use are:

-Johnson's Buddies kids soap (in the baby section) $1 and there are frequently $1 off coupons in the paper (present CP after your 3/15 CP)
-clearance section: I've gotten cheap make up, fragrance samples, small tissue packs all less than a dollar
-This week Puffs tissues .89 cents and we can really use it!!
-I also look in the candy section at checkout, frequently there are markdowns like Hershey's kissables for .40 cents and chocolate raisins for .28 cents


Plan your transactions ahead of time if you can, unless they are out of an item. That saves a lot of counting. Also make sure you know the order in which to present your coupons, which makes a BIG difference in your OOP.

There was another size marked for $3.39, but I wanted a small OOP. Are there any other Brut products that come close for $3? Our stores only have deodorant and rest of the products are over $7.

Just wanted to let everyone know that the Bounty/Charmin/Duracell deal has a limit of 3, not 1. I don't think I'll go for it since I'm well stocked, but it may help someone else.

I purchased $10 worth of Dove products - a large shampoo and a deoderant. Those 2 totaled slightly over $10. I then had a $3 MC for the shampoo and a .75 MC for the deodorant. I did not get a $3 ECB after the transaction. The manager said the $10 in Dove products could not include man. coupons coming off the $10. This made no sense to me since I know the ECBs work in other scenerios of this type. I returned the items.

Has anyone experienced this?

Is there anything about the Dove deal at the bottom of your receipt? From the monthly book, it looks like deodorant counts, but not shampoo, which is why the ECB wouldn't print. If you had gotten 2 more deodorants or maybe a body wash the ECB would have printed. The cashier was DEFINITELY wrong about the manufacturer coupons for ECB deals. I hope no one ever believes that! :scared1:

Only certain products from Dove count towards the deal!

Quick question - I"m leaving now to do my last-minute shopping.

Claritin - does this count as pharmacy, or can I purchase it as part of my transaction to equal $25?

It counts as part of your transaction because it's over the counter :)

Both of our CVS stores were sold out of the Charmin and Bounty so I didn't get to do that deal.

One of our stores had plenty of the bandages and toothbrushes but would only let each customer purchase 2 (even though we know the limit is more).

Got plenty of Pampers though which is what we really needed. :thumbsup2

The Smart Rinse does have a limit of 4 per card. I got 4 today and my receipt said limit reached 4.

Well, I did my first CVS deal purchase. (OK, I did 4, actually! :goodvibes )

I did find out some interesting things:

-Both stores by my house will not accept coupons of any kind past the expiration date.

-Being $.02 below the coupon limit will not be allowed (I was $24.98, and I could not use my $5/25 without spending the extra 2 cents).

-ECB (on Dove, at least), will not print if you're even .01 below $10. (See, I thought I was doing so good when I bought the clinical strength deodorant for $9.99 and used my $2 coupon and I'd get 3 ECB back. NOPE!)

I just got back from another run to CVS. I left with over 70 in retail for 10 and 11 ECBs. This is my list:

Blood glucose monitor (free with coupon)
Chex
Chex (.50 coupon)
Febreeze deal
2 Colgates (1.50 coupon) BOGO
Cascade 3.99


There may by more and I cant remember. But, i used a coupon for 4 off 20 and used 10 ECB, 1 ECB and coupons. It says I saved 117.00 today. I plan on going on Sunday this week so the items will not be sold out. That is frustrating to me. I may be getting the hang of this, maybe.

Ok so I got really lucky today

I went to use my 4/20 email coupon again

I bought the following

2/2.00 Dawn deal
2 Listerine for $3.49
3 bandaid's for 1.99
1 Oral B toothbrush $6.99

Used
2/1.00 Listerine coupons
$9.00 ECB coupons
$4/20 coupon

$6.48 OOP

I go to leave and realize that the Oral B was the wrong one as they were sold out so technically I was paying full price for a $5.99 set
So I returned them and that meant that my first order which was $21 was actually only $16 and I got the $4.00 coupon -

But here's the odd part

My 1st receipt says
Subtotal $5.94
tax 6.75% .54
Total $6.48

BUT my refund receipt is
subtotal $5.99-
tax 6.75% .40-
Total $6.39-

Not sure how the calculated the first one - but it's obviously wrong. Guess I need to watch this closer.
