CVS 7/30 (Maureen) – $5.84 Profit on $141.01 in Merchandise (104.2% Saved)

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

I had a great trip to CVS today with my mother’s card.  The Red Machine was unusually generous to her (not to me, sadly), and we have great coupons to match this week’s promotions.  Many thanks to Steve for his Pantene/Tide deal because I copied it to the letter.  She had $58.16 today in Sally Hansen, Pantene, and Schwarzkopf products, so she earned another $5 in CVS Beauty Bucks (earn $5 Extrabucks for every $50 spent on qualifying products).  She won’t get it for a few days, but an extra $5 profit is factored into the final tally for this trip.  For those of you enrolled in the Beauty Club, you may have noticed that body wash and bar soaps no longer qualify (as of June 1).  And I was very happy to see that the CVS digital manufacturer’s coupon for Tide came off.  I tried a Dawn coupon recently that did not come off.

    Maureen I want your mother’s card! She gets all the good coupons!

    • She does, doesn’t she? I got four lousy Red Machine coupons last week. This week, I got a decent $2/$6 body wash coupon and a decent $2/$10 body lotion coupon, and six other crappy coupons. My card has been so bad lately that I don’t even have any Extrabucks to roll. I am hoping that if I don’t use the card for a month that I might start getting the really good coupons again.

  2. Great shop! Thanks for sharing 🙂

    I was thinking the same thing about mine have not use it in a long time because I was shopping more at Walgreen because it was my birthday month and I was racking up point.

  4. What a great shop and quite a coincidence that you posted tonight. I got read the riot act from the ass’t mgr at my store this evening. Do you take your mom with you or do you just use her card?

    I shop for my daughter because she works two jobs and has two boys. Just being a nice Nana. lol

    Ass’t Mgr tells me flat out multiple times tonight that this is against store policy and she will no longer allow me to use my daughters card without her being there. We live in different households so I don’t know what rule I’m breaking and she couldn’t show it to me in the coupon policy.

    Feeling sad in Chicagoland.

    • I don’t announce that I am using my mother’s card when I present it with the order, and I don’t bring her with me to the store. However, I don’t attempt to use my card and my mother’s card during the same trip. There are three CVS stores in my town, so if I am going to shop with my card and her card during the same week, I go to more than one CVS or shop on different days. My parents have a hard time putting together coupon deals, which is why I do the hardcore shopping for them, but they will stop at CVS occasionally to pick up the odd gallon of milk or greeting card or prescription, so they aren’t phantom cardholders.

      There is a sign posted on the Coupon Center kiosk (aka Red Coupon Machine) saying only one card is allowed per person. I know there have been problems in the past with people who brazenly used different cards on multiple transactions during the same shopping trip. Those people truly had more than one card.

      I’ve only ever had one CVS card, and I know of no rule saying I can’t shop for my parents using their card.

    • Corporate is very receptive to rude employees. I’ve had to call on them but also called to brag on good ones. If you are in Chicago, you may have another nearby store. I have two stores equidistant from me and one about 4 miles farther.

    • Thank you, ladies. 🙂
