CVS 7/15 (Monica) – Paid $17.24 for $69.89 worth of merchandise (75.3% Savings)


CVSjuly15mbI had some Extra Care Bucks that were expiring so I had to get a trip together. I noticed that the Coke Products were on sale this week and included in an Extra Care Bucks promotion. I am happy to report that I am on day 5 of NO CAFFEINE! You will notice that I purchased caffeine free this time around (and even though the others aren’t pictured they are ALL CAFFEINE FREE!) and eventually I hope to cut out my cokes altogether but since I went through so many at one time I needed to do it in steps, first went the caffeine and next goes the sugar 🙁 Here is how my trip went today…

    Monica, how did you get your CVS to accept the All coupons when there ws a Walmart logo on the coupon. My CVS REFUSES to accept any coupon with another store’s logo

    • Monica Bragg says:

      They don’t actually have the Walmart logo on them. They only have the Walmart name on them. However, my stores don’t have any issues because they are manufacturer coupons that they will be reimbursed for.

  2. I actually was SO disappointed at the store I went to….no weekly ad, very few sale/ECB markings etc. I could not purchase anything from the list…and I was all prepared!
    Is CVS going to do this again?
    It is now the only pharmacy I will go to because I have had trouble navigating both Rite Aid and Walgreens with their crazy rewards programs…but now I have my doubts about CVS.

    • Monica Bragg says:

      They only do this every once in a while. You should be back to normal next week.

  3. great, Monica. If you have the opportunity, tell them how frustrated I was. I had been waiting for this All detergent with my coupon, and also the Cover Girl makeup. All I could do was the CeraVe and I ended up spending more than anticipated because they had sold out of the hand cream.

    In addition, when I gave them the ECBs for my purchase, the 30% off coupon I used was reduced by almost a dollar. Any idea why that is? That is unfair since I ‘earned’ those ECBs.

    • Monica Bragg says:

      The 30% off coupon deducts after all CVS Store Coupons which is why it was reduced.
