How did you score 3 mascaras? I thought the limit was 1?

Quick note, I went to my CVS today and the "hidden deal" on the CVS brand make up remover did not work.

I bought 2 and wanted to use 2 of the $2 CVS brand Q's. The computer beeped and would not go through because the coupon reads "one per customer" which means one per transaction. My cashier had her manager to push the Q through but I really should not have been able to use more than one per transaction.

Also, it only printed me $1 ECB's per remover and my receipt said I needed 1 more to reach my limit which would put my limit at 3 not 5.

I just thought your readers might like to know that this deal may not work in every area :-) (I live in SC, by the way)

Thanks for all your hard work! I get lots of great info here and I really appreciate it.

I'm getting discouraged with the CVS's in our area.
I have 3 local stores and none of them are ever adequately stocked on the items that are free after ECBs. Being a Christian and wanting to do things ethically, I do not have more than 1 card per household as I'm learning many people in my area must! They go in and wipe everything out. Also, there are store owners/vendors who wipe out the good ECB deals to mark up and resale at their stores.
It's very frustrating for those of us trying to be good stewards of what God has given us, wanting to get some good bargains by rolling ECBs and having nothing there all week or month!!!
It makes me angry that CVS does not supply their stores with more merchandise. I tried the whole month of June to get the toothbrushes that were free after ECBs and after the first week of the month, they never got anymore in! What's up with that? And, I tried 5 stores in 4 different towns while we were on vacation!
Same thing with the mascara this week. I've tried all week long, none!
I guess I need to shop the weekly ads at the crack of dawn the Sunday morning they start...when I'm trying to get my family off to church!
Sorry! Just venting! I don't guess anyone else has this issue/problem with stocking enough merchandise at your stores, in your areas.
I'm calling corporate Monday. I want to brag about how fabulous all the employees are at the store nearest my home and complain about this issue!
Thanks for posting the deals so faithfully Denise!

Becky... My CVS gives me a raincheck for the stuff they are out of. If it's free after Extra Bucks, then the rain check makes it just plain free!

Denise Sawyer said...

The limit on the mascara was 1!
I have a card and my husband has a card so I scored 2 with ECBs. I should've read the fine print - the other one I didn't get ECBs for!!
Oh well - live and learn - even I MAKE MISTAKES! =)

Thanks for letting up post our links here - I love reading to see what other people got too :)

Thanks for all the great information you share! For some reason I didn't think I could use multiple $2 off skincare coupons in a transaction until I saw you had done it! I used 5 today and got some great deals! Thanks!
