cvs-122015I had a GREAT trip to CVS very early this morning! I spent a ton of money out of pocket, but I think it was worth it. I picked up the Amope Pedi Perfect File (which I had been eyeing for some time), plus I picked up a lot of razor cartridges. I found awesome peelies on the Schick Quattro Titanium Refills at my store. There were $4/1 peelies on each one, plus they said they had $4/1 coupons for a future purchase in the box – and they did! That means I’m going to get another great razor deal when we get another sale 🙂

FYI – My Gillette ECB had to be printed manually. The Mach3 Disposables did not track towards the Extra Bucks deal. I also received $5 Beauty Club Extra Bucks at the Red Coupon Machine and those savings are included in the final stats for this trip. (I count the Beauty Club ECBs when received, since it’s hard to assign them to a single trip when earned since they are earned over multiple trips in most cases.)

Here’s what I bought, along with the coupons used:

***I decided to use the $3/1 Gillette Mach3 Refill CVS store coupon I had, not knowing if it would either categorize the $12/2 coupon as a total purchase coupon or the $3/1 coupon as a manufacturer’s coupon since it said MFR. It allowed both. Not sure I should have done that.

  1. i got my AMOPE PEDI PERFECT FOOT FILE at wal-mart and they take the cvs 10.00 coupon as a comp so i could use that and the 5.00 manufacture and got back 7.00 back from ibotta

    • Steve Pinski says:

      Wow, they’re not supposed to take the CVS coupon. There’s a good chance someone will get in trouble for that.

  2. does your store not take other stores coupons Steve

    • Steve Pinski says:

      The coupon policy at Walmart has very specific rules about what types of competitor coupons are allowed. Competitor coupons must have a specific price on the actual coupon, like a Walgreens in-ad coupon.

      • well here they take is just like if something was on sale at another store i use the publix ones all the time i asked 4 people and they all said it was ok i have noticed all wal- mart is different they tell me it is up to the manager of that store
        by all means i fallow the rules of the store i am not trying to do something that i’m not supposed to

  3. Steve, you keep making reference to a Maybeline $2.00 off coupon and it very clearly state being redeemable at Walmat. The CVSs in my “neck of the woods” clearly refuse to accept any manufacture coupon with another stores name, i.e. Walmart. Bummer
