What to know at CVS

If you’re new to CVS, ECB stands for “Extra (Care) Bucks.” Here’s what to remember:

  1. Unlike Walgreens RR, ECB are store coupons and can only be used at CVS. They are also tied to your particular CVS card, so if you get an ECB or store coupon that prints out at the price scanner or register, it will only work for your card.
  2. Always scan your card at their in-store price scanner, because bonus coupons print out there when you do so. Keep scanning until it says no coupons available, because sometimes it prints more than one set.
  3. Sign up for their ExtraCare emails with your card number and you’ll get a bonus $4.00/$20.00 printable coupon, plus random emailed coupons throughout the year. The $4.00/$20.00 and other $/$$ coupons can be used before any other coupons.
  4. Buy yourself a green bag tag for $.99. Attach it to your reusable bag. Every fourth shopping trip that they scan your tag, you get a bonus $1.00 ECB. (Note: you’ll only get the credit for one trip per card per day.)
  5. ECB always roll, meaning you can use them on any other ECB-generating item and they’ll still generate new ECB.
  6. Limits listed in the ad are per card.

    Rachel,
    I was excited to see the Beneful deal and noticed use five $2.50/1=$12.50 not $10.00
    Read your post daily and love it. Thanks and appreciate your hard work, always.

    When I was jumping around chasing the $5/5 Kelloggs coupon, there was a $2/1 Wisk coupon on Coupons.com. It appears to be gone now, but if anyone printed it, may make for a good deal on the BOGO.

    watch your Nivea lip! bought 4 milk–n-honey this morning. 2 rang @ $2.50 and added toward the ECB … 2 rang @ $2.99 and gave no credit. No ECB printed. The girl said the 2 had “new packaging.” she credited those 2 out, scanned the first two again and all was well. But watch!

    I just bought the SensatioNail gel polish starter kit and if you want to try doing a No-Chip manicure at home it’s a good deal. $59.99 -$3/$15 coupon (pharmacist story coupon) -$5 coupon (from SensatioNail facebook page) = $52 and you get back 2 $10 CVS giftcards (it ignored that I was 1 cent short of $60!) and $5 Beauty Club Reward (since this is over $50) So for a grand total of $27 you can do 10 No-chip manicures, which cost about $30 each at the salon. You may want to call first though, my store only had one in stock.
