CVS Shopping List 10/28 – 10/31/12

This content uses referral links. Read our disclosure policy for more info.

This deal has expired and may no longer be valid.

It’s a deal-packed ad for the first half of the week. In addition to this week’s Extra Buck offer on P&G products, there is also a $15 mail-in rebate currently available that will help you snag some awesome deals on a variety of P&G products, including CoverGirl and Herbal Essences. We’ve outlined a couple different deal scenarios for you.

Also, a large number of coupons expire Wednesday (10/31), but this shouldn’t be too big of a problem considering the ad is only valid through then.

If you’re new to CVS, your first step is to learn the ins and outs of the Extra Bucks program and learn how to read this shopping list. For those who use reusable bags, you may want to buy a green bag tag.

And if you regularly purchase beauty products at CVS, I recommend enrolling in the CVS Extra Care Beauty Club, which is free to join. As a member, you will receive $3 Extra Bucks on your birthday in addition to other opportunities for free Extra Bucks. Read this post to find out more.

Remember that this is a starting list of deals for the week. We will update this list as readers leave comments with bargains they found at their local store, we get emails with deal ideas or we read about other deals across the blogosphere. Items that are added throughout the week will be noted as NEW. Items whose final price changes as a result of a new or modified coupon scenario will be noted as UPDATED. At least once this week we will send out a reminder to come back and check this list for the hottest new deals.

Your turn: What other deals did you find this week at CVS?

    Great Job!!! You are so helpful, as I have 7 kids from 1 to 18 and I work full time, so to save the time by jumping on to your site is very nice.

    Great trip to CVS today. Had a couple $10 ECB coupons set to expire 10/31 from prior trips, had a $10 off $50 purchase Q from register last week. Total OOP was 1.70 +$3.46 Mn Tax (frown frown) and saved $89.69. Got back $13.00 in ECB (Hoping for a fantastic end of week sale – or at least good until Thanksgiving Day sale items (happy face happy face). + Can submit for the $15 P&G Rebate. Can't say enough good about CVS (already have submitted multiple compliments to corporate). And I must say the store had more than ample supply for couponers. My donations this month will need a bigger delivery vehicle – thanks CVS. Thanks Carrie for the lists and work you do each week.

    Regarding the Aveeno deal: There are Aveeno products all over the store. Of course the least expensive lotion had the shelf cleared ($3.79 each). But I was able to find Aveeno Calamine & Pramoxine HCI Anti-itch cream for 4.99 each. I purchased four and the $15 ECB didn't print, but they did give it to me after the fact. So I used the $3/2 and $1 coupons to buy four anti-itch tubes for $1 total or .25 each.

    Resetting Extrabucks– something I hardly had a problem with. Occasionally, I would call and someone would say X manufacturer EB can't be reset, others would say that but do it anyways. Today I called about a $10 EB that expired on the 23rd and they said they don't reset expired EB! Has anyone else run into this? Do you know if any stores will take expired EB?

    TIA, $10 is huge to me :(

      I think the "big" CVSes will accept them up to a month…defining the big ones not so easy but I think the one in Brooklyn Park is one of them..

    I went to CVS Brooklyn Park and tried the deal idea above buying 8 bottles of herbal essence, etc and was informed that as of a month ago, you can only buy 4 of any item with a "with card" deal. Has anyone else heard this? My bff works at this CVS and was unaware of the new rule…I swear its getting more and more difficult for me to find deals these days….frustrating…

      Amy – I have never heard of that restriction. I know that there's a limit to ECB deals and sometimes there are limits stated in the ad for other items but I don't see a specific limit to the Herbal Essence deal (beyond the limit on the coupon, of course).

      The only thing I can see in their coupon policy is the usual "Management reserves the right to limit the quantity of items purchased."

      I just did this deal at the Blaine CVS this afternoon with no problem whatsoever. I find your experience odd since the deal is for buying $30 or more P&G items to get the $10 ECB. I bought 8 bottles of HE shampoo, 2 Aussie, and the 8 CG eye shadow with no problem. Actually, the staff were extra accomodating, subbing the Dawn dishsoap that was out with any kind of Palmolive (and allowing me to use the Dawn Q) and forcing the $5 beauty ECB that didn't print for me to print. I have always had wonderful experiences at this CVS. I guess it must really depend on the store…

    I purchased some of the pampers diapers today for the P&G deal and received my ECBs. I noticed that on the bottom of my receipt that doesn't say limit reached like usual, but says $30 needed to earn reward (as well as the already purchased $30). Has anyone done the P&G deal twice and received the ECBs both times? I noticed that this promotion is part of the 3 day sale also this week, but they do have the same offer number. Does anyone know if I would be able to repeat my deal later this week during the 3 day sale?
