cvs-100216We had a great trip to CVS today! Unfortunately, there are a few items missing from my picture. What you see in the picture is my transaction, however the items from Stephanie’s transaction didn’t make it in the house and she had to leave to attend a birthday party. So I’m going to write up the deals from her transaction too, however you won’t see the items in the picture, because they ended up in a bag behind the driver’s seat instead of the trunk that we emptied.

We also both received our $1 Quarterly Extra Bucks Reward today, so that’s an extra $2 of savings that is factored into the final statistics for this trip since it has not been accounted for previously.

Also FYI – Both of us received $15/$75 Total Purchase CVS store coupons on our receipts today. If you have a huge transaction planned, you may want to buy something small first to see if this coupon is triggered for you.

  1. My second cover girl coupon did not scan so had to pass on all three items. Cashier said coupon read only one per transaction, even though it read purchase. But could not argue with her since new policy is doesn’t scan no override. 🙁

    • I think you can buy them in 3 separate transaction. They will count to the $15 each time.

    • My third manufacturer coupon for cover girl deal did not scan. He said it didn’t work two times….he went through all my coupons and I got out the three cover girl products. In the end, he just took off another $3…im not sure what’s up with their new coupon system, but I clearly bought the items. I had this happen one other time…

      • I had the same problem! Bought 2 eyebrow pencils and one eyeshadow; 2 coupons went through without any problems; the 3rd beeped. Cashier told me I had bought only 2 items and could use only 2 coupons. Showed him the eyeshadow and he forced the 3rd coupon through. Had to buy all 3 at once because I had the $3/$15 cosmetics CVS coupon.

        Really wish CVS would explain why things like this are happening!!

  2. The covergirl eye shadow didn’t match the coupon in my store today. I bought that before and It worked. It was so weird….

  3. Kirk Ekard says:

    May sound stupid but what does the (preclipped) mean after printable coupons? Is it just cutting the coupons. Learning, thanks.

    • Steve Pinski says:

      preclipped means that when you click the link it will already be “clipped” for you at Coupons.com and you don’t have to look through the hundreds of coupons to find it.

  4. According to my ad, the Colgate mouthwash is limit SIX. I only had 3 $2 coupons so that’s all I bought, but I did indeed get a $6 ECB.

  5. Just a note in case this happens to others. My store register subtracts the coupons before it calculates the $30 total. This happened Saturday for last week’s scenario with $10 back on a $30 purchase of certain items. The manager was unaware of this and we tried to figure it out for some time. She finally said it wasn’t “right” for them to deduct coupons before total and I didn’t see it anywhere in writing. She manually printed the ten bucks for me. But, I am assuming this will be a new problem for me. 😔😤

  6. I always wish you had a brag section like KCL. You always inspire me so much more than her website does and when I have these awesome transactions I want to credit you.

      I wish we had one too! Unfortunately, we don’t have the resources they do. Was that your shopping trip? If so….awesome!!!
