I know this trip is a little sad but I am only posting this to tell you that the Pringles deal will NOT work. The coupon is not a match and because they are 10/$10 they are considered a sale item even though they are ALWAYS $1. I even argued this point and got no where. Oh well, I didn’t get the $5 Dermasilk coupon from the Red Coupon Machine and I didn’t get the $1/1 Physicians Formula coupons in my inserts, so this trip was almost a bust. I did however get the toothbrushes this week so not a complete bust.

  1. All I bought was the toothbrushes as well. My CVS only carries two dermasilk products and both were $39.99.

  2. Last week, the red coupon machine spit out a $4 off 3 Colgate Optic White toothpase, mouthwash, or toothbrushes. I bought 3 Optic White 360 toothbrushes, stacked the $1 off each coupon. Paid $1.97 but got back $4 ECB on the first two toothbrushed. $2.03 MM!!

  3. Hello ladies..I been so dissapointed with my stores the red machine is giving the $3 on 15 on the stationery stuff ande the doubles point to scan…last week i could only buy the toothpaste…I been scanning my card in 3 differents stores in the tampa area and its the same…I need to ask if someone if been having trouble with once you scan the card ,doesnt give you nothing more until the next day..

      I am also only getting stationery and double rewards coupon, so you are not alone. I think at this point I have at least 10 caliber ones.

      • Hi Alison and Michelle,

        I’m sorry you’ve been having such bad luck with the red machine. I honestly don’t know what the criteria is for what coupons you get. I live in Pinellas county, so you would assume we would get similar coupons. I too have gotten the stationary coupon every single time I scan my card. I don’t think the store you scan at necessarily makes a difference. The ony thing i can figure is sometimes it has to do with your buying history? Does anyone know if this is true?

        All I can tell you is, I scan my card until the machine tells me no more coupons are available…and I scan every time i go to CVS…which sometimes can be multiple times in the week. Hopefully someone can tell us what’s behind which coupons you get, and why? :(

  4. Hi everyone, OMG! I still cant believe i was so lucky !!! I went to cvs Sunday to do my toothpaste deal and toothbrush and when I scan my card I got a 0.75 cent off on a colgate toothbrush….wow then I scan my husband card and he didnt get it….but i was such a happy camper I almost did a happy dance :) I also got the Tide pods not the greatest deal but I wanted to try them.
