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

I had a great CVS trip today! Luckily, I brought some extra Viva and Cottonelle coupons, because my store was out of the Scott products. Both the roommate and I have CVS cards, so that’s why you see the Colgate and Easter Candy deals completed twice. Here’s what I bought, along with the coupons used.

  1. Great trip

  2. Linda Neagle says

    Since coupons,com added all their security features I can no longer print coupons from my 2 computers, if I reach the limit on one, I’ve reached it on the other without ever printing a coupon. I tried to ask them but my computer virus software won’t let me contact their help desk. Any ideas why they think it’s just one computer? I use the same printer for both but always have, I used the same phone number to verify and I’m thinking maybe that’s the problem. Any insight into this would help. Thanks

    • They are changing their system. Before you could get two prints per device. Now you can get two prints per unique phone number.

      • So Maureen and/or Steve,
        Are you able to print from more than one computer in your house? If so, are you using different phone numbers for each one?
        This is getting really frustrating with this coupons.com change……ARGH !!!!!

        • Steve Pinski says

          I can print from every device in my house. We never did the phone number registration thing on any of the computers. They prompt us to do it every time I print coupons, but I refuse every time.

        • I have two computers and registered a different phone number with each one.

  3. The break down is great. But the only bad thing is that I hate paying too much out of pocket to receive the extra bucks. You roughly paid like $30 bucks and got back $22 EB back and the other cash back on apps. Did you roll any of your EB from last week that you paid out pocket less?

  4. My store changes their system for coupons. Before you can use so many coupons now they have 2 coupons and the rest will beep.. my problem is I wanna use my ecb together with my mq now I can’t do it I have to split transaction and it’s hard coz I’m force to pay out of pocket. Can somebody help or advice.

    • I think you should contact the CVS customer service people and explain the problem. I haven’t experienced the problem you describe, so it’s not happening everywhere.

  5. I don’t have viva checkout offer.
