NEVER MISS A HOT DEAL! SUBSCRIBE TO OUR DAILY EMAIL NEWSLETTER!

I had an INCREDIBLE shopping trip this morning. Not only did we get some great new coupons to print this morning, but there are also some amazing sales and Extra Bucks deals to match them at CVS this week. I also had some nice CVS Red Coupon Machine store coupons, plus I had a 30% off regular price items CVS total purchase store coupon that I received in my email last Thursday. Check out all the amazing deals below.

Some CVS stores enforce a limit of four identical coupons. My store does not, so I was able to use five of the Revlon coupons and six of the Almay coupons. Also, I purchased over $120 of Beauty Club qualifying items in Transaction #1. I will get at least $10 of Beauty Club Extra Bucks next week and I have included them in the breakdown below.

All of my items in Transaction #1 were regular price items and my 30% off regular price items CVS store coupon deducted for all of them. That one coupon was worth over $46 of discount.

  1. cleo brown says

    WOW!

  2. How do I get those 30% off coupons, or are you just lucky….did you have to sign up for something?

    • You need to register your Extra Care card on the CVS website and opt into getting promotions and sales alerts by email.

      • I had 30% coupon but the cashier told me I can’t use it because the items are on sale since they give out extrabuck

        • Steve Pinski says

          If your store acts like that, then I suggest buying one very cheap full price item that costs $1 or less. Then they will have to scan the coupon.

      • My card IS registered and I have opted into getting e-mail, but the only percent off coupons I get are for on-line shopping only! I have NEVER gotten any of the ones like you all have!

        • Steve Pinski says

          One of our cards gets “online only”, but the other one gets the good in-store ones.

        • I have not received any percent off coupons either. I did call customer service and they said my email was not registered with their ‘sister’ company. I have received one $3 EB in my email for setting this up, but still not received any of the other emails – just online only. Hoping it may change, but not holding my breath.

  3. theresa m adkins says

    My receipt is saying Limit revlon reached after 30 dollars, thanks so much I saved 99 percent on my first one, I am going to do it again after I can print more, my second one I forgot a cvs coupon big oops and paid 3.49 out of pocket, I have a cvs 3$ off .( first order I had, 3 off 9$ revlon and a 3$ off revlon from cvs so that helped since I did not have the 30% , thanks again

  4. Steve I get the 30% off but its only for on line shopping

  5. Most of these huge deals are not going to be replicated by the majority of people as CVS usually quits sending those percentage off discounts to about 95% of new cardholders and couponers after about 3 or 4 months – especially if you use them and end up spending very little $$$. I got them at first as did most of my couponing buddies – none of us get them anymore. Other than opening a new account every 3 month wish I knew the secret to keep getting those discounts.

  6. Another fabulous score! Great job!

  7. We have 2 cards one for myself and one for my husband ( the same cards since 2011). Usually one card gets a % off coupon and the other gets a $ off sale coupon. I have never had a cashier refuse to scan a CVS coupon.

    Sometimes the red coupon gives a % off coupon on certain items also, and usually it is on the card that has the $ off sale coupon, I like that! I love CVS.

  8. CVS just refused to use my 30% of beauty coupon because they said that Revlon was part of the promotion for ECB. So disappointing that would have saved me so much!

  9. Everytime I try to send the coupons to my card it’s telling me error… and they are fixing the problem..is anyone else having this problem?

  10. yes –same prob

  11. I’ve been a loyal customer of CVS for over 10 years. I have yet to get one coupon via email from those tight a– ingrates. I’ve probable filled out 200 surveys for them and have never got a Thank You . Just get irritated when I read how everyone else gets these marvelous deals. To date I spent $2467.87 for the 2016 year.

  12. How were you able to reuse the 30%

  13. I work at cvs and unless the item has the sale notification under it in the chip reader screen, or on the checkout computer, you can use any %off coupon towards it (EB deals do not really count as sales since you have to buy a certain amount usually). On Black Friday, I’m sure you can use coupons towards the items that will end up being free after you receive the extra bucks. If cashiers don’t scan your coupons and try to make up some stupid rule its because they are upset, frustrated and/or disappointed they can’t figure out how to shop smart. Some people come up to me with their red coupon machine roll of coupons and they have no idea what applies so I just scan them all and let the computer do the deciding. The only thing the computer will accept when it shouldn’t is a cvs coupon that has expired by about a day or two. I check expirations on those and kindly tell the customer their coupon has expired because if I do scan it, the date won’t match up to the reported mail out date of the coupon pouch we put them in. Additionally, the top 3 cashiers with forced coupons and modded items receive reports they have to fill out and it looks bad if you’re consistently one of the top 3 “modders”. I guess this prevents cashiers from trying to help out too many people at their own discretion.

  14. Aymet Hashmi says

    I received on red coupon machine $1 off $4 breakfast bars &cereals no $1/1, also $1/$4 candy, I think machine print diferents coupons, not all customers get the same, also never get 30% off for store, only on line.

  15. Ken from Philly says

    I used to get those % off total order coupons, but it seems to have stopped last summer about when the policy changed about accepting CVS red machine coupons for up to 2 weeks after exp. date. I can’t brag too much any more without them….I am slowly migrating over to Rite-Aid/Plenti as at least you keep your points for 2 yrs (not like 3-4 weeks to use or lose ECB) and with other retailers.
