CVS sometimes release coupons that can be used to get a $ off when you spend a certain amount. These coupons used to be a LOT more common, but unfortunately, people were abusing them, so they are pretty rare now. When they do come out, CVS fans like to celebrate because it means we can save even more (and sometimes make money, too!).
There is an online version of this magazine, and on page 30, there is a coupon for $2 off a $10 purchase at CVS. Here’s the link:
If you’re just getting started and wanted to earn Extra Care bucks for the least amount out of pocket, here are a few scenarios:
Scenario #1: (if you don’t have yesterday’s paper)
Print up the coupons for 2 Colgate toothpaste here:
Print up the coupon for Advil here:
Print your $2/10 from the link above.
Buy 2 Colgate toothpaste (check the ad to make sure you are buying the right ones) and 1 Children’s Advil (the monthly deal also works on the infant drops). You will spend $5.77, but get $9.79 back in ECBs.
Scenario #2: (if you have at least one copy of yesterday’s paper)
Buy 2 Cover Girl face products (they range in price for $5.79-9.99….the more expensive, the better because you want to get to your $10 total!….also remember you want both products to be the same price basically or they will deduct the cheaper once twice)
Buy 2 Colgate toothpastes (use the links above to print coupons)
Buy 1 Oral B toothbrush (use the $1 off coupon from yesterday’s paper)
You will spend $2.47, but you will get back $5.50 in ECBs
Scenario #3: (also if you have at least 1 copy of yesterday’s paper)
Buy a Gillette Fusion razor (remember to check for the gift packs with the shave gel!)
Buy a small item (in couponing lingo, we refer to these as “fillers”) like a candy bar to get you over the $10 total
Use your $2/10 CVS coupon and your $4 Gillette coupon from yesterday’s paper. Spend $4.49 and get $3 back. (This isn’t the best deal but if you need a razor, it’s an inexpensive way to do it)
Here are a few other deals I missed in my first post:
*Kleenex are BOGO free this week. If you buy 6 boxes and use 2 of the .50/3 coupons that were in yesterday’s paper, you end up getting them for about .60/box.
*Pert Plus shampoo is BOGO free this week. There were $2 off coupons in yesterday’s paper. CVS will let you use two coupons (one for each item) when you are doing a BOGO free offer, so if you use buy 2 bottles of shampoo and use two of the $2 coupons, you get free shampoo.
*Sure deodorant is BOGO free and there was a BOGO free coupon a few week’s ago. If you have this coupon, you get the deodorant free.
There was also a mail in rebate form in yesterday’s paper for $5 on school supplies when you buy $5 in Pert/Sure products, so if you buy the deodorant/Shampoo and then $5 in school supplies (there are lots of good deals on school supplies this week including several BOGO offers), you could potentially get free shampoo, deodorant, and school supplies. The Bic White out is BOGO, so you could print out 2 coupons for .50/1 which would make it pretty cheap:
*Chex Mix is 2/$3. There is a printable coupon (see below) for $1/1, so you can get Chex mix for .50.
