  1. What is CVS’s policy on how close to the total you need to be to generate the ECBs? I was $.02 away last week and did not receive the $5. This was on the Bounty deal @ CVS.

    • They follow what’s known as the 98% rule, so if a promotion has a $20 minimum for an ECB to print, the ECB will print if the total is at least $19.60 before tax or coupons.

      Editing to add that CVS has been adjusting the registers so often lately relative to how promotions and coupons are evaluated and allowed that it may have been a glitch when you bought the Bounty or is a sign of changes coming for everyone. I don’t recall the specifics of the Bounty deal because I don’t need paper towels. The 98% rule has worked for me for several years and worked for me yesterday.

      • Here in southern Florida, you have to spend the full amount to receive the ECB’s. I have dealt with this numerous times sadly!

  2. Man, I only have one of the Suave Savingstar rebates… such a great deal if you have all of them. Did they just come on your app, or have they been around for a while?

    • The Unilever rebates usually show up in SavingStar accounts on the same day as the insert coupons, so November 6 for the current Suave rebates (10 days ago). I check SavingStar every couple days, but definitely whenever we get a Red Plum in the Sunday paper that has any Unilever coupons. You don’t always get a matching SavingStar rebate, but you usually get at least some with matching rebates.
