cvs-081116I had a great trip to CVS today! I was a little bit concerned due to a few horror stories from visitors about their experiences with the changes in the CVS coupon policy, but my trip had no issues at all. I split this trip into two transactions so I could use the Extra Bucks from the first transaction to pay for the second one.

I also used a $4/$20 purchase CVS store coupon I was emailed last Thursday. Those extra $4 of savings are reflected in the statistics at the bottom of this post. (For those of you that don’t know, you get four days from the date you print or send your email coupon to your card. I sent mine on Sunday, so I had all the way until this evening to use it.)

  1. Can u get these coupons, deals if you dint get the paper?

    • Steve Pinski says:

      In this particular trip, the only deal you can get without the newspaper coupons is the Snickers deal.

  2. Do you find it is best to wait midweek to shop at CVS to see what new rebates are available or does it just depend week to week? Thanks!

    • Steve Pinski says:

      I prefer to shop the first day of the sale when I know things will be in stock.

      • Ok, Thanks! I just started following you a couple weeks ago, and I am amazed and a bit emabarrased I didnt start using coupons sooner. Thanks for your cvs for beginners!

    • I shop on Sundays because I am using CVS app on my phone and all coupons from Red Coupon Machine are available on app Sunday morning so I am getting a good amount of overlapping deals like two of the $2/2 Colgate toothpaste – one is disappearing Monday and another one I just got but both are at green to use for cashier Sunday…

  3. Isn’t your savings star rebate for $4 and not $1?… The tresseme botanique rebate is Save $4 when you buy any 2 tresseme botanique shampoo or conditioners…. Or maybe you used it already or didn’t get it… Hmm ( things that make you go 🤔Hmm)

    • Steve Pinski says:

      I don’t have the $4 Tresemme offer. I think I was late getting over there to load them that day. If there was a $4/2 offer it had hit its max activations before I logged in.

  4. If I were to do the tresemee deal with the dove, could I also use a cvs $2 off tresemme coupon with the $3 off $15 cvs shampoo?
