CVS 1/21 (Maureen) – $15.60 PROFIT on $134.87 in Merchandise (111.6% Saved)

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

I had a great trip to CVS on Sunday evening.  I shopped Sunday because I wanted to use my $3/1 Rimmel Eye coupons before they expired, but as it turns out, I didn’t need to rush because we have a new $3/1 Rimmel Eye available today!  I did not get any Hershey’s Gold bars, which are BOGO this week and will be free for those who still have any BOGO printable coupons (no longer available) because the two stores I checked were out.  I skipped the CoverGirl deal because I did not get the CoverGirl coupons in my 1/7 inserts.   Be sure to check this week’s CVS Free or Almost Free post HERE to see other deals.

I did not receive any emailed coupons, nor did I get a $/$$ at the end of my receipt.  However, I didn’t shop at CVS last week, so I had all my Red Coupon Machine coupons from last week and this week to use for my trip on Sunday.

As always, cashback offers vary (in kind and value) by account.  I used some cashback offers that may no longer be available to activate and some printable coupons that may no longer be available to print by the time you shop.

    i have 40% of loreal and garnier skin care. But it says it excludes sale and promotional items. is it like the same coupon which you used above(20%). will mine be applied or is it excluded?

    • It will work on items that are at regular price, even if they are part of an Extrabucks promotion. The cleansers are regular price, so the 20% off worked. That coupon will not deduct anything from the l’Oreal shampoos because those are on sale for 2/$8 (reg. $5.29).

  2. Dana Gitzlaff says:

    Very well done, Maureen! 🙂

  3. CVS is a nightmare to use coupons at. I had a coupon for a free cvs brand shampoo and they fought me on that! This company is full of mean and BlTCHY people that look to fight wwith everyone that comes near. Not worth it.

    • Obviously, I still find CVS to be worth it, but I sympathize with you. CVS is increasingly difficult for people who use coupons because of the ever-changing way the registers handle coupons (or don’t handle coupons).

    • We have a CVS that opened a few years ago and I have had problems couponing there; however, they just built a new one at another nearby location and the staff’s attitude is 100% different. Maybe try a different CVS?

  4. Thanks for sharing your shopping trip, Maureen! Always great to see!! Every week I think, eh–there’s nothing to buy at cvs, and then boom you have a fantastic trip! Thank you thank you!!
    (By the way, my cvs is great and super friendly with couponers…can’t say the same about my Walgreens though)

  5. Canni, I am so very sorry to hear that!!! I live in Texas (DFW) and NEVER have any problems with CVS I do believe the problems arise from the personal opinion of the employees Some people are just miserable You shouild definitely contact the corporate office

  6. Denisha M McCarter says:

    Maureen, did you do this all in one transaction or multiple ones? Thank you.

    • I bought everything in one trip, but bought the L’Oreal cleansers first, then bought everything else together in a second transaction. I had a force-printed ECB and a Beauty Club ECB that I did not want to use with the %-off L’Oreal coupon (those two ECBs would have deducted from the total before the %-off coupon was applied). Otherwise, I would have bought everything in one transaction.
