My Zero Cost CVS Deals This Week
I received a $3.00 bonus Extra Bucks coupon from CVS by email yesterday, which was only good for a couple of days. If you want to play the drug store game at CVS, you really need to sign up for their emails.
I found a great 75% off clearance on CVS brand Cold and Flu medicine that my hubby takes for allergies. The ingredients in this one do not cause one's blood pressure to go up.
There's a 79 cents off Just the Basics paper towels, that prints at the coupon center, which makes the paper towels free for everybody..... unless they run out. Its not worth a special trip, but I was there anyway.
Here's the break down:
4 packs of CVS Cold and Flu HBP medicine $5.76 (total)
1 bottle of Wisk Laundry Detergent 4.99
1 roll of JTB paper towels .79
Less coupons and extra bucks
$2.00 off Wisk
$1.00 off CVS allergy medicine (printed at the coupon center)
$3.00 bonus extra bucks
.79 off the paper towels (printed at the coupon center)
$4.75 extra bucks
1. CVS has wonderful clearance sales if you can find them. The CVS allergy medicine was only marked 50% off on the tag, but when I got to the cash register, they came up 75% off. I ran back and grabbed 2 more at that price. It would be a good idea to scan items at the coupon center to check prices. I love to find a clearance item for which I also have a coupon.
2. We don't use many paper towels at our house, since we have converted to cloth napkins, dish cloths and dish towels. But, I'll take them anytime they are free! I have 3 rolls in my stash right now that were all free with coupons.
3. You can scan your CVS card at the coupon center more than once. I always scan twice and save the coupons for when the items are on sale. Lots of times, a week or 2 later, I will be able to combine these CVS coupons with other coupons and sales to get an unbelievable deal.
4. I did what is known as "burning extra bucks" in this transaction. This means that I used extra bucks coupons on items that did not generate more extra bucks. In other words I didn't "roll" them. Sometimes I just want to start over from scratch when I see some good deals. I'll get more extra bucks, soon enough!
