  1. bobbiejo45 says

    I've read that for the Nivea/Eucerin deal if you buy (4) @ $4.88, your overage will carry over to your next deal, since you can do this deal five times. So if you did the 4 @$4.88=19.52 the next time you would only have to spend $10.48 to receive the $5ECB. Don't know what everyone is gonna do with all that body wash…If I figure out how to get some more with no OOP I will do it and donate to a shelter.

  2. Dawn M. says

    Body Wash: It makes great gifts. Put in a basket with a few other items and you have a wonderful gift for a new mom in hospital or for birthday or even a pamper basket for Mom on Mother's Day. Been good deals on perfumes and such so add one to a gift and most would enjoy.

    I have gotten the Simply Asia much cheaper so I don't think that is a good price.

    Thanks Carrie, and Happy Mother's Day!

  3. Steph says

    I was just at CVS and the coupon spitter outer gave me one for $3 off two bags of M&Ms, snickers or Dove 8.5 oz or larger. So if I buy 3 bags of M&Ms, use that coupon plus the buy 2 get 1 man. coupon, I will get three bags for $1…that's a great deal! Hope some others get that coupon from the machine as well!!

  4. Lisa M says

    Do you have to sign in to get the CVS coupons to print (From their webpage). I went there, clicked on a few, pressed print, and it said it was sending coupons, but nothing got sent to my printer.I have verified my printer is on and working

    • Lisa M says

      Nevermind,,, After printing a few other coupons other places, I went back and was able to print :)

  5. Shannon says

    I got a a great deal on the tooth paste today — there were select boxes of buy one get one and they were also $5.99 so I got four for the deal listed !

  6. Jill says

    I had a $3 off two bags of M&Ms, Snickers or Dove, from the coupon spitter outer, that expired 5/6 – but she let me use it, so I got the three large bags for $1.00. (using the buy 2 get one free from 5/2 RP) Great Deals today.

  7. jo says

    List of things gotten today: Crest Pro health Toothpaste (1), Pro health rinse (1), Oral B indicator TB multi pack (1), Crest Pro health TB (1), Right Guard Deod (2), Nature's Bounty Vitamin D (2) – After coupons $3 off Right Guard, $3 and $2 Nature Bounty coupons (from website), $0.75 coupons each of the Crest Prohealth items, $1 coupon for Oral B TB, $15 ECB from online survey, BIGIfree Nature bounty sale–Total OOP was $1.80 and received $14.50 in additional ECB to use next trip. CVS is awesome !!!!

  8. J.S. says

    The CVS in Shakopee has a bunch of sunscreen on clearance for 75percent off. Coppertone, Hawaiian Tropic, cvs brand, and others. Expiration dates are after summer ends (the 4 bottles I got don't expire until next spring) I paid between 2.12-2.50 for each bottle I got.

    Back left hand corner of the store on the endcap near the diapers.

  9. rochelle says

    Got Prohealth toothpaste, kotex u liners, hydro razor, 2 covergirl outlast lipsticks, 1 cvs conditioner, 2 kotex pantiliners, 3 large bags M&Ms, 2 CVS bandaids (40 count), 1 huggies jumbo pack of diapers for a total of $1.57. Got 6 back in ECBs. Saved $71.29! I love CVS!

  10. Erin says

    There's a coupon from 4/11 RP for B1G1, so you can get 2 free CG lip products when you match it w/ CVS's B1G1.

  11. Erin Rose says

    The Nivea is not $4.88 anymore. Its $4.99 for mens and up to $6.99 for womens. Found out the hard way. I didn't pay attention to the tags and just grabbed them. Wish I didn't waste my coupons on them at CVS but didn't want to hassle with returns (EBCs etc). And yes Vonda is right, the totals do not carry over on the Nivea deal. :( Oh well.

    • says

      Anita – Nope, those are just the dates for inserts from last year. Listerine/Reach coupons tend to have expiration dates that are a LONG way out in the future, so some readers might still have these inserts (or the coupons from them) sitting around.

  12. says

    I've seen reports of Airwick i-Motion and i-Motion compact being on sale for $4.99. At my store it was only the regular i-Motion starter kit that was on sale for $4.99. After $4 coupon, it's only $.99

  13. serena says

    I am new to this CVS thing. I cant find where to print $1 off of Kotex, I clicked on the link and looked through all the cvs coupons and could not find that one or the $1 off of the CVS shampoo to make it free. Please help! Thank You!

  14. Nancy says

    For me, the $1/1 Kotex CVS printable is no longer there. However, I was wondering, those coupons do print out as manufacturers coupons, not CVS coupons. They shouldn't be able to stack with the Kotex coupon anyway, right?

    Also, the coupon spitter outter gave me a $4/2 Revlon eye/lip coupon. Combine it with the Revlon deal and it is better than free. (Unfortunately for me, I only found 1 $2/1 coupon and the link doesn't work, so I was only able to use 1 plus my $4/2 coupon. It still came out free, though, and I'm happy!)

    • says

      Nancy – Thanks for the tip on the Kotex CVS printable. We can't tell just by looking at the site if it's going to print as a store coupon or a manufacturer's coupon.

  15. Kristy says

    Thanks for the comment! I headed there on Sunday and it was 90% off. Spent $1.77 saved $55.22. My husband was amazed!

  16. Kristen says

    I got the CVS Kotex cpn but printed it last week as I knew I would need it, I think they are just out of prints. I'll be stacking my CVS $1/1 (exp 6/30) with my printable $1/1 making it better than free with extra care bucks :)

  17. Angel P says

    Just an FYI – I got the $3 off m&ms from the coupon spitter outer today so they are still out there! Love paying $.33/bag

  18. Crystal says

    My kotex coupon printed as a store coupon, so I'm not sure why some of them didn't? It prints in a similar fashion as the mfr. coupon, but it has the "cvs/pharmacy" logo on it and the barcode is different.

  19. Teresa says

    I just have to say it. I love CVS :) It could be a Lindt chocolate high I am on (that I got on sale), but I don't think so. They are just always so nice.

  20. Melissa says

    Help!! For this offer:

    Buy 1 Right Guard or Dry Idea for $2.49, Earn $2 Extra Care Bucks (Limit 2)

    Does it mean if I buy 2 that I get a total of $4 ECB's?

  21. rochelle says

    I thought that the Cheer on sale for 4.99 – $1 manufacturers coupon= 3.99 was a really good deal!

  22. carrie says

    I got the M&Ms earlier this week. If you use the buy 2 get one free coupon the coupon value rings up at reg price, $3.99, so you get 3 bags for $2. If you get the CVS coupon and stack it, its better than free!

  23. serena says

    Thanks for answering my one question. But I had two.

    Where do I find the 1/1$ for the CVS shampoo? Is that on their website?

  24. serena says

    Thanks Today will be my first time at CVS to actually use coupons and get good deals. I have never used the coupon thing before. Do you know how often you can use it?

    Thanks Again! I can't wait to go tonight. I have my coupons and transactions all numbered and organized. Wonder how good my first time will be?

    THANKS FOR ALL THE HELP ON THIS WEBSITE!

    • Lisa ** says

      Have fun! I love CVS now. Word of caution don't be rattled if you have to get rainchecks and it throws off your lists and expected OOP results (not that it ever happened to me at first, lol, can you tell it did?). Depending on the location a lot of the deals posted can be out as we get towards later in the week. Just make sure to get the rainchecks and you'll be fine!

  25. Kristen says

    I did the M&Ms deal today – my cpn value for the M&Ms was $2.99 (so I paid $3.01 plus tax for three bags of M&Ms) – I tried the coupon spitter outer and I can't seem to get the "good" cpns – I did the get the $1/1 for the shampoo – so I now have two free bottles of CVS shampoo – which works fine for my kiddos! :)

  26. serena says

    I got the dollar off CVS hair product, but mine didnt have any shampoo for a dollar. :(. I got the veet, kotex, rightguard, crest and floss deal though! Plus 1 off 2 pharmacy products and my cvs had bandaids on clearance for 50 cents so they where free. OOP a lil less than 20 plus I have 10 in ecb left. ( I also bough a couple of things with no coupon or ecb) Not too bad. Got a lot of stuff! Cant wait till next week.
