cvs-051516I had a GREAT trip to CVS! My store must have been well stocked on the Calendula Cream, because there were several on the shelf when I shopped this evening. For those of you that aren’t aware, we have a HUGE moneymaker this week.

I also had two prints of an oddball Unilever coupon that was good for $2 off two Hellmann’s, I Can’t Believe It’s Not Butter or Lipton products. I don’t remember where it came from or if it is still available to print. (I’m guessing it has to be long gone; mine had an expiration date of today.) Thankfully I had a really nice cashier, because that coupon was a beeper. I wasn’t expecting it to beep on the Lipton Recipe Secrets and Soup Secrets products, but I did expect beeps on the Lipton Pure Leaf Tea since it is bottled in a partnership with Pepsi. I’m just glad my cashier was super cool.

So this Calendula deal is a $6.51 MONEYMAKER, but the MobiSave deal is expected to end late early Monday morning. At that time, it may disappear completely, or they may bring it back and reset it. So make sure you check your app before you shop to make sure it is there. (Even if it’s gone, it’s still a BIG moneymaker with the sale, coupon, Extra Bucks and other overlapping cashback offers.)

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

  1. I was in my CVS around 11 am. They had ONLY one Calendula on the shelf.

  2. I was out at 8 am and there weren’t any at my CVS, Lol. I was lucky to get one at another CVS this evening.

  3. Ken from Philly says:

    What, no Scope this week? 🙂

    • Steve Pinski says:

      Next week…lol…been running out of people to give Scope too. Next ones go in the donation box lol.

  4. Linda Neagle says:

    I tried to use my coupon on Diet Pepsi and was told that it was only valid on the regular Pepsi. I didn’t get it, I’ll try a different CVS as I don’t think that was correct.

    • Steve Pinski says:

      Yeah that seems odd. (Plus my store didn’t have any Diet Pepsi, and if it wasn’t free then the shelves would have probably been full!)

  5. When I went sometime after 11 am, there was only 1 on the shelf, I was shocked, normally it’s just the tag for it.

  6. Kristel says:

    Where is the calendula cream located ? Couldn’t even find a tag,
