Frequently asked questions:

Do you really do multiple transactions at your stores?

In the past, I usually had $20-30 ECB on hand, so I didn’t have to break up my transactions as much as I did when I first started, but now that I am starting over, yes, I am doing multiple transactions. If you are doing multiple transactions, I recommend that you let the cashier know up front that is what you are planning to do. If there are several people in line, let them go in between your transactions. This gives you time to clip your ECBs and get prepared for your next transaction.

My store was out of all the freebie items first thing this morning. Can I get a raincheck?

This all depends on your store. I have contacted corporate about this before because some stores in my area give rainchecks and others won’t. According to corporate, this is up to the individual stores.

I bought the wrong item or I bought the RIGHT item and my ECB didn’t print. What can I do?

If you bought the right item, show the store clerk your ad and your receipt. They should be able to manually print your ECB at the store. If they don’t know how, you can call customer service and they can add one to your account that will print within 48 hours (you have to wait 48 hours from your purchase time to do this so they can “see” your transaction in their computer).

If you bought the wrong item and didn’t receive ECBs, you can do a return and purchase the correct item. If you paid using ECBs, they will have to give you money on a gift card.

Get Rio for as low as $6.99 at CVS!

Yesterday I posted about a $3 printable coupon for the movie Rio here and I posted prices for Target and Walmart and then one of my fabulous readers let me know that there is also a deal at CVS!  I LOVE it when you guys leave comments and tell me about deals, by the way!

This week at CVS, when you spend $15 on iTunes gift cards, you can get the movie Rio for $9.99!  If you use the $3 printable coupon here, that’s just $6.99 for the movie!

Here’s the breakdown on this deal:

Buy $15 in iTunes gift cards
Buy Rio – $9.99

Use $3 Rio printable

Spend $21.99 OOP

I love it! I sure hope my store has some in stock because I’m planning on taking advantage of this deal and using my ECBs to help pay for it! If you haven’t registered your Extra Care card yet, you can also do that and sign up for their e-mails and you should get a $4/20 coupon e-mailed to you, which means you’d only be spending $17.99 OOP for the iTunes gift card and the movie!

Have you seen Rio yet?  What did you think?  My kids and I loved it!

Tip of the Day Tuesday: Check out the CVS Advisor Panel!

I haven’t posted much about CVS lately because in my opinion, there haven’t really been any good deals to post and also, I’ve been a bit bitter toward CVS because they refused to reprint the ECBs that I lost when I was mugged. I had completely forgotten about the CVS Advisor Panel until I got an e-mail from them. I qualified for a $5 ECB just for completing a survey that took me about 5-10 minutes to complete!

Here’s how it works:

1. Sign up for the CVS Advisor Panel here (you will need your CVS Extra Care card # to sign up)–CVS Advisor panel.

2. Complete the surveys that they send you in e-mail. They are usually for 5, 10, or 15 ECBs. There used to be a waiting period of a few days and then your ECBs would print on your next in store visit, but now you get a link right away to print yours. Even if you don’t qualify for the survey, they will usually give you a $2 ECB just for completing the screener!
