CVS 12/31 (Maureen) – $11.78 PROFIT on $110.63 in Merchandise (110.6% Saved)

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

I had some great CVS coupons to use on this week’s sales.  I received a $10/$60 at the end of a receipt, a 20% off from a CVS email, and numerous good coupons from the Red Coupon Machine.  Seeing that Monday is January 1, and we always get a lot of new coupons and SavingStar offers on the first of the month, I would normally have held off a day before shopping.  But I had a couple coupons expiring on December 31, and I wanted to get a few more Beauty Club purchases in on the last day of the year.  The CVS Beauty Club tracker resets to zero on January 1 every year, so I had to hit $30 in qualifying purchases by December 31 to squeeze out another $3 reward in 2017.

I did not get the Secret/Old Spice dry spray deodorants because the ibotta rebate disappeared before I shopped, and the Rimmel turned out to NOT be included in the “any cosmetics” promotion.  However, I did buy one Rimmel product because I needed $15 to reach $30 for another $3 Extrabucks for the CVS Beauty Club and did not quite have enough with the L’Oreal and Nivea lotion.

I had also planned to take advantage of the 20%-off coupon and promotion to get $10 Extrabucks for spending $20 on Aquaphor to get some diaper rash cream for my pregnant niece (she’s due in April, so you’ll see me buying the best baby deals going forward), but my store was out-of-stock.  I ended up throwing some Christmas clearance candy into my basket to make sure I had well over $60 so my $10/$60 total-order coupon, 20% off regular prices coupon, and $/$$ category coupons would play nicely together.

  1. I got $5 and 50% for l’oreal hair. Can I combine both coupons and maybe get two treatment for free? How would % play out, before or after other coupons?

    • I can’t be sure how the register will apply the coupons.

      I would try buying two treatments, then hand the cashier the coupons to scan in this order: 50% off first, then the $5 off CRT, then one $2.50/1 MQ. The best-case scenario will be to pay $0.09 + tax for two treatments using a single $2.50/1 MQ.

      However, CVS has been playing with the programming relative to how coupons are deducted, so the register could be programmed to apply the $5 off CRT before applying the 50% off coupon regardless of the order in which they are scanned. In that scenario, you would still ultimately pay $0.09 + tax for two, but you would have to use TWO $2.50/1 MQs instead of one.

  2. The CVS registers have been wonky for me. Last week when we had the $5 Almay coupon I used it together in a transaction with other items and I had a 30% sent to card. The register took 30% off all my other regular price items but did not apply at all to the regular priced Almay. It’s as if it took the $5 cvs Q and wouldn’t apply anything else to it. The Almay was priced $10.xx so there was more than enough Almay to deduct, lol.

  3. Can anyone tell me how to get the CVS email coupons
