You and your kids are in my prayers today!

JenMarie said...

Love your blog...you're in GA! Me too! I'm in Marietta.

Faerie Mom said...

Don't forget that Arm & Hammer detergent is BOGO this week, with printable coupons somewhere (can't remember where I got them) you can end up with 4 bottles for less than $10.

becky said...

So on the essence of beauty thing, you can get the $5 ecb 5 times? Is that what you mean by limit 5? I have some ideas brewing and brewing and they all ride on this deal ;)
Thanks for the website!

Denise Sawyer said...

Becky,
Yep, you buy 3 and get $5 ECB's and you can do it 5 times!!! Meaning you take home $25 ECB's and 15 gift bags!

Yippee!

Stephanie said...

So the CVS diapers for $8.99 will both count towards your $20 total so you can use the $4/20 coupon? I thought it would ring up the second diaper as free... Does anyone know if this is the case???

Candace said...

When I bought the diapers that are B1G1, the free one didn't come off until all of my coupons went through. You should be able ot use the 4/20 first.

Jesabella said...

Buy Contour Meter $14.99
Use $30/1 coupon from 3/16 SmartSource (it will be adjusted down)
where are you getting this coupon?

Jesabella said...

sorry...wrong comment!! baby is on the lap as i am typing!!! Haha

DIYMommy said...

Do you have to have a special coupon to get the $25 gift card for a transfered Rx or do they just give you one?

Lisa said...

Where can you find a transfer script gift card coupon?

Lisa said...

Thanks so much for showing me scenerios! That was all I needed to get started.

AnneMarie said...

missed the smart source so I can't play your game.. darn. I will be looking for that in the future. Thanks for the tip.

Karen said...

OMG!! I am so excited! BTW, I love your blog! Anywho I just got back from probably my best CVS ever! My favorite cashier was working who lets me use ECB's on tax so I can get very low OOP. Here's what I got

2 VO5 Shampoos
2 VO5 Conditioners
2 Arm & Hammer detergents
1 Neutrogena face bar (needed $2 to finish deal)
1 J & J lotion
1 Nexxus shampoo
1 Nexxus conditioner
Total before coupons and ECB's
38.79
-4/20
-36.99 ECB's most close to expiration
=-.20 that the cashier adjusted so
TOTAL OOP ZERO and I earned $17 ECB's!!

Heather said...

I am wondering if you got that 3/10 coupon from the price checker/card scanner, or if it was a CRT coupon. More importantly, have you ever seen a card scanning price checker in a store in your area? I can't find one in Chattanooga.

Denise Sawyer said...

DIY Mommy & Lisa,

I heard that some of the Doc. Offices have them and that sometimes they print at the ends of your reciept. I will let you know if I get any more tips on where to score one! Try calling your CVS and asking - I did. Anybody else have a clue?

Heather,
I have HEARD that the $3/$10 is from a CARD SCANNER. But, like I said in the post...I haven't seen a card scanner - I don't have one at my store. The only stores I've checked (locally - assuming you live in my area too) are Summerville's, Ringgold's, Fort Oglethorpe's (2 stores) CVS. And, none of them have the card scanner. So, I had to settle for the $2/$10

Stephanie said...

I tried to do the Cover Girl BOGO deal and they wouldn't let me use my manufacturer's BOGO coupon on top of the CVS BOGO deal. Has anyone else had this problem? I tried to explain it to the cashier, but he kept saying that I didn't pay for two, so I should be able to use the coupon.

Leslie said...

our newspaper had the transferred prescription coupon every week for a month or so wrapped around the cvs add,

becky said...

where exactly are these gift bags? i've looked in 2 different cvses and i can't find them anywhere!

Debbie said...

I found $2/10 coupons in a purple pamphlet at the pharmacy counter in a display reading Take One For Extra Savings

Carly said...

Did the toe dividers work for anyone for the ECB? I am a CVS newbie, and tried to do this deal and it didn't work. Should I contact CVS directly or do these not work? Thanks!
