cvs newbies

Here's your CVS mission for next week, should you choose to accept it. But you MUST shop on Sunday or Monday for this particular deal!

Print another copy of the $2/$10 coupon I talked about last week.
Print this coupon for Loreal Skin Genesis.
Print this coupon for Chex Mix.

You will purchase:
(1) Loreal Skin Genesis @ 5.99
(1) Revlon Nail Enamel @ 3.99
(1) Chex Mix 4.5-6 oz. @ 1.00
(1) Right Guard Sport,  Soft & Dri or Dry Idea deodorant @ 2.99

(NOTE: If this is your first week, do NOT buy the deodorant.)

Give your coupons in this order:
-CVS card to be scanned!
-Your 7.99 ECBs that you earned last week.

You will pay .98 + tax, and you will earn back 10.99 in ECBs. Congratulations, CVS just paid you to shop.

If this is your first week, you will pay 5.98 out of pocket, but will earn 8.99 back in ECBs. They print at the bottom of your receipt.

A couple of people have said that they don't use these products so it's not worth it to make a trip to CVS. I respect that... however, they make great donation items to shelters or Single Moms Ministries. And also consider that you will start earning $5 off $25 purchase coupons immediately. Those are the best... I get free diapers/pacifiers/baby necessities, Burt's Bees products and household necessities (like toothpaste, toothbrushes, trash bags and dish soap) on a weekly basis thanks to those coupons. CVS also carries groceries, including dairy products (not much in the way of organic though, so no go for us) but this is a great way to get free groceries for your family as well. If anyone gets a $5/$25 or $4/$20 coupon, let me know and I'll help you work out a scenario to get free stuff (or at least really cheap stuff) that you actually need.

Also, if anyone is actually doing this, please leave me a comment so I know to keep posting scenarios. Otherwise I'm taking up precious blog space that could be better utilized telling you how Ocean calls helicopters "opticotters" or that Iris is finally cutting her first teeth. =)

These are fun! I'm accepting the mission! :)

Ok, this CVS coupon says it can't be printed from the internet....will they take it?

CB said...


Because the coupon comes from an online magazine in its original version, yes they will take it. If someone made a pdf, copy or fax of only the coupon and distributed it, they would not accept it.

Clear as mud?

I just saw the bit about "opticotters." I wanted to share--my two year-old calls them "hoppitopters." I love the stuff they come up with!
