CVS Coupon DISCUSSION: questions, scenarios, & chat for ALL coupons (including Manufacturers) that can be used at CVS
 
This is the CVS Coupon Discussion thread for questions, scenarios & chat for all coupons (including Manufacturers) that can be used at CVS.

This is the only thread due to the fact another thread that had CVS coupons only turned into a begging thread and was full of abuse.

FAQ:

Q: Will (insert coupon) BEEP?

A: There are two types of e-mailed coupons. Product-specific coupons and $ off coupons. In most cases, product specific coupons will NOT beep at the register, regardless of whether you rec'd them in your email or not. On the other hand, $ off coupons WILL likely beep if you did not get them directly in your email. The cashier's screen will pop up with a message along the lines of "Coupon not valid for card scanned"

Q: Will my cashier push a beeping coupon through?

A: YMMV....that is up to the cashier/manager. Some users have reported that even if they have received a coupon directly from CVS, it still beeps, so CVS will probably push your coupon through as a courtesy to you. There is no official policy to push through beeping coupons, so DO NOT EXPECT THEM TO PUSH THEM THROUGH for you.

Q: What are 12-digit and 13-digit coupons? What's the difference?

A: A coupon barcode that has 13 digits is one-time-use. Once it has been used, it cannot be used again. If you try to use it again, the coupon will beep and the cashier's screen will say "Coupon already redeemed on [date]" 12 digit coupon are multiple-use coupons, and can be used many times.
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Disclaimer: The following information is based on what the CVS register system will allow. Individual store policy is still YMMV.

CVS Coupon Guide

13-digit CVS q's
-some expire promptly on expiration date given
-certain 13-digit CVS q's are lasting past the expiration date given, like the $5/$25 flu shot printable or certain product-specific purchase-based q's from the readyfill booklet (excluding the readyfill booklet generic $4/$20).
-one-time use only: once scanned, that particular 13-digit q can never be used again, even if you void the order & start afresh; on the 2nd attempt, register will say already redeemed on mm-dd-yyyy
-$/$$ limited to one purchased-based coupon per transaction

12-digit CVS q's found in-store or in newspapers, magazines, and other publications
-expire 15 days from expiration date given

xIncognito -Northern VA
hb5of10 -Houston, TX
jamama -Northern NJ
-expire 15 days from expiration date given
-limited to one coupon of the same barcode per transaction in certain areas; one-time use only in other areas as already noted

12-digit CVS product-specific q's emailed

-expire 15 days from expiration date given
-limited to one coupon of the same barcode per transaction

9-digit CVS q's from register receipt
-work only on EC Card for which they were issued
-expire promptly on expiration date given, and in some cases, at the exact hour/minute issued
-limited to one coupon of the same first 5 digits (of the 9-digit code) per transaction
-if used in a transaction that is then voided (so you get CRT back), next time you use it will beep "not valid for card scanned" even though it is for the right EC card.
-if expired & beeps "expired" and you get it back, next time you use it will beep "not valid for card scanned" even though it is for the right EC card.

9-digit CVS daily recurring q's from price checker/coupon printer
-examples: $2/$10 CVS Brand, $1/2 Gold Emblem Candy, $2 Gold Emblem Water 6pk or larger
-work only on EC Card for which they were issued
-CVS Brand $/$$ expire 30 days from expiration date given (needs more current confirmation)
-CVS Brand product-specific q's expire at least 21 days from expiration date given or expire when a new code (as defined by the first 5 digits) for the same product type begins issuing, whichever occurs first (needs more current confirmation)
-limited to one coupon of the same first 5 digits (of the 9-digit code) per transaction
-if used in a transaction that is then voided (so you get CRT back), next time you use it will beep "not valid for card scanned" even though it is for the right EC card.
-if expired & beeps "expired" and you get it back, next time you use it will beep "not valid for card scanned" even though it is for the right EC card.

9-digit CVS $/$$ or product-specific q's from price checker/coupon printer
-examples: $5/$25, $1 Almay, $4/$20 Playskool, $2 Colgate Toothpaste
-work only on EC Card for which they were issued
-expire promptly on expiration date given
-limited to one coupon of the same first 5 digits (of the 9-digit code) per transaction
-if used in a transaction that is then voided (so you get CRT back), next time you use it will beep "not valid for card scanned" even though it is for the right EC card.
-if expired & beeps "expired" and you get it back, next time you use it will beep "not valid for card scanned" even though it is for the right EC card.

Notes:
-actual CVS q's begin with 4
-9-digit CVS q's from your receipt or the price checker/coupon printer are called CRT's
-using expired CVS q's is YMMV, even if they work without beeps; some stores take them, some don't
-exceptions may occur due to store-specific programming of their registers
-exceptions may occur due to glitches in the system, especially on Wednesdays, but usually revert back by the following day
-exceptions may occur due to cashier error
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Before starting a discussion about coupons , PLEASE READ THE FOLLOWING:

COUPON ACCEPTANCE
As a general rule, stores should accept your coupons because they got you in the door and build sales. The official corporate policy is that CVS will accept one Manufacturer's coupon and one CVS coupon per item. Extra Care Bucks do not count as a coupon for purposes of this rule.

When you get into the fringe scenarios, however, it will vary by district, store, and even by cashier. Some stores have been instructed to "take all the coupons a customer has", some limit you in various ways. Some stores allow multiple "Save $X on $YY purchase" coupons, some don't. Some stores allow the use of coupons past their printed expiration date, some do not. Please note that the newer Save $x on $yy purchase coupons limit you to 1 per transaction.

USAGE OF EXPIRED COUPONS
Historically speaking, CVS coupons do not beep* until 2 weeks after the expiration date printed on the coupon. Some stores take the coupons until they beep, even if it is past the expiration date. Other stores have a policy to NOT take coupons once they have expired.

So, until something changes in their system, a $/$$ coupon that is expired will NOT beep until it is 2 weeks past the expiration date. Given that, please calculate what 2 weeks past the expiration date is and don't ask this question in the thread.

Since some stores have a 'no expired' coupon policy, and we do not want to abuse their kindness in giving us these coupons, please don't be upset if your store won't take the expireds. It happens. Key here is that once a CVS coupon expires, it is even more YMMV than before.

* "beep" : When the CVS register system alerts the cashier that the coupon was not accepted, we refer to this as a coupon that "beeps".

USAGE OF "Save $X on $YY purchase" COUPONS - STACKING AND SUPERSTACKING
The official corporate policy is that you may use as many of these coupons as you like, as long as your total purchased meets the total of the coupons.

In other words, if you purchased $30.00, you may use both a "$4 off $20" and a "$2 off $10" in the same transaction. You may not use a "$4 off $20", a "$3 off $15" and a "$2 off $10" together in this scenario because those coupons would require a $45 total purchase.

An item that is FREE as part of a B1G1 by CVS cannot be counted towards your minimum purchase required to meet the $xx.

This is to keep consistent with how CVS would officially count how much you spent when there is an ECB deal that requires buy $xx and get $yy ECB. (See below for example):

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
When CVS has their "Buy x of product, and earn $xx ECB" promo, and the items are on sale B1G1 Free, do both of them count toward the promo?

If the ECB deal is buy a specific amount of $$ in order to obtain the ECB, then only the one you pay for counts. The free one will NOT count.

If the ECB deal is buy a specific number of ITEMS in order to obtain the ECB, then both items will count.

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
In other words, we need to have the minimum threshold for the $xx be calculated in the same exact manner as how CVS would do it when they (CVS) offer a B1G1 sale.

Any deal scenario or discussion that talks about using these type of coupons without the total being greater than the minimum threshold of each $x/$xx coupon and/or counts the free item towards the $xx minimum threshold for a CVS B1G1 sale will be deleted.


SlickDeals does not condone fraud, the discussion of fraud, or anything resembling fraud. Any scenario where you try to cheat CVS by inappropriate purchasing & returning, using coupons to buy gift cards, or any other fraudulent usage will be removed and you will be subject to warnings for illegal activity.


WHAT TO DO WHEN YOUR COUPON BEEPS
Please do not call the CVS customer care line to complain because a store didn't allow you to stack multiple $X off $YY purchase coupons, or because they wouldn't let you use an expired coupon, or because they wouldn't let you use a coupon for a 6.0 oz colgate on the 4.2 oz package (that coincidentally is generating ECB), etc. DO NOT EVER CALL ABOUT STACKING $x/$xx COUPONS!

CURRENT KNOWN PROBLEMS WITH PARTICULAR CVS COUPONS
*will be updated as issues are reported*
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------

The following is an example of starting a discussion about stacking $x/$xx coupons and should be avoided, instead one should please read the above about coupon acceptance instead.
Quote:

Not that it would be wise to attempt it and attract unwanted attention, but as an example to facilitate understanding here : On a $35 purchase transaction of at least 9 items, a register could accept all the following unique coupons ?

$5 off $30 #1, 4-1583, 1-13-08
$5 off $30 #2, 4-1817 , 1-13-08
$4 off $20, 4-1584, 1-13-08
$4 off $20, 4-3037, 1-21
$5 off $15, Times Union 1-13
$3 off $15, 4-1585, 1-13-08
$3 off $15, 4-1587, 1-27
$2 off $10 4-1575, CVS Brand, 1-13-08
$2 off $10, 4-9924, 1/31/08

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
OFFICIAL POLICY REGARDING THE POSTING OF COUPONS ON SD AND ALSO ANY FUTURE COUPONS THAT HAVE NOT OFFICIALLY RELEASED.

The official policy on coupons as far as SD goes is that we allow all coupons to be posted with the following exceptions:
• Altered coupons - warnable offense
• Posting a scanned version of a coupon that was printed out at Coupons.com - warnable offense
(note: providing a link to where to print out the coupon at Coupons.com is OK)
• Scanned manufacturer's coupons - warnable offense
• One-time use coupons (useless anyway)
• Coupons asked to be removed by the source (for example, Lowe's and Target have both asked us to pull coupons off SD)
• Please note that CVS has asked us to not allow attachments, this includes *.JPG, *.PDF, and *.DOC to be posted here. Direct links to CVS coupons will still be allowed.
As for the coupons posted early, as long as they are hosted by the retailer on the retailer's server, we'll allow them. As a compromise, we'll hide the posts until they are 'officially released', but we will allow them to be posted.


This is an email I recived from Corp regarding coupon use - NeedNewShoes


Quote:

Dear Ms. Jen :

Thank you for taking the time to contact CVS/pharmacy with your inquiry regarding CVS/pharmacy coupon policies and proceedures. I hope that the following information will help to clarify things for your group.

We value our savvy coupon shoppers at CVS/pharmacy. As of June 2007 however, we are no longer accepting expired coupons.

Like many companies, we cheerfully reset expired coupons for many years to accommodate our wonderful customers. The recent change in proceedure can only be attributed to loss prevention.

CVS/pharmacy will accept coupons printed from the Internet.

They must have a legible barcode that scans at the register.

If the coupon does not scan at the register, the cashier should politely inform you that we are unable to accept your coupon. We do not allow manual overrides at the register for coupons printed from the Internet.

Our registers are set to allow 1 CVS coupon and 1 manufacturer coupon per item. However, the staff should be allowing customers to use Extra Bucks in combination with other CVS coupons since these are coupons you have “earned.”

In addition, similarly they should be allowing the use of “offer at the register” coupons which would be an open offer of $3 off of $15 or a certain dollar amount off of a specific item.

Since our registers are programmed to only accept 2 coupons (1 CVS, 1 manufacturer) per item if the number of coupons exceed the items purchased a member of management will need to assist the cashier in processing the coupons.

I apologize in advance for any inconvenience.

But once again, I thank you for contacting us. If you have any further questions, please don't hesitate to contact us again.
Sincerely,

Slayers,
Is this only for discussion of CVS printable coupons or any coupons that we may use at CVS?

That is a good question. For right now, I think it would be OK to talk about any coupons that can be used at CVS -- and if the mods think otherwise, then they are free to revise it to make it for CVS coupons only.

I will for right now revise the title.

I seem to have several books left over and could not get out to use them.

Thanx!

The 4 off 20 (any purchase) and the 2 off 10 (oral care) worked for me at 2am.

4/20 from readyfill beeped as expired around 6:30am this morning for me. cashier pushed it thru though :nod:

:D

Count your blessings one 4/20 at a time! :drool: Once you really start to save, they usually stop. I haven't gotten a 4/20 for a looooooong while. Could be because my receipt shows year-to-date savings of about $3,000, summer spending about $20! ;) Hmmmmmm! wonder why I don't get 4/20 anymore! :D

I think the real problem is how CVS set this promotion up, and did you notice in the preview of next week's ad it says "ask the pharmacy for a prescription review and get the $100 book"?

I've never been to the Minute Clinic until I wanted the book, so I didn't realize there isn't a receptionist or anything, just the nurse. So, if the nurse is with someone you have to wait. Then the nurse gets irritated when you "attack" her when she finally opens the door, further she gets more irritated when you tell her you don't need the flu shot! :shake: So really, that just wasn't the smartest way to go about giving out the books.

MyFeetHurt 09-13-2009 06:16 AM

Mgr at my store said they received an email telling them to give out the books to the people that get a flu shot first and then if any are left over, they can just give those out

Oh no, I totally understand. Just that if the nurse didn't want to come back out with the book really I'd appreciate if she told me even if it was something like, "I'm sorry but you will wait forever." At least this way I can move on. And I totally agree, CVS set this up in a way where you can get the book in different scenarios depending on how you read/take it.

I agree, you should call corporate to complain about her actions. I would think they would have a means to get you a copy of the coupon book as 'compensation' for her actions.



Maybe you don't really intend it, but do you realize that almost ALL of your posts about CVS are negative?

I don't agree that CVS trains all their employees to be rude. I do think that rude behavior begets rude behavior, and negative attitudes beget negative attitudes. Perhaps that is why you see all the employees at CVS as rude. Personally, I like almost all the employees at the CVS stores I frequent.

When you can't say something nice, I'd just rather not hear from you. Maybe you could only post when you have good news? Oh yeah, that would mean you would likely never post in a CVS thread, huh?

Ok, and this post is proof that negative behavior begets negative behavior. My apologies to the rest of you reading this that I have stooped down to this level in responding on this issue.

Now back to our regular CVS coupon discussions!



I meant everything I said and in fact restrained myself-

"My apologies to the rest of you reading this that I have stooped down to this level in responding on this issue."

in your case you did not have to do any "stooping"

I do think this is a forum equally available for both positive and negative comments

if you were to look, you would see that all my negative comments are in response to other negative postings and never initiated by "AVANDARLAY"

by the way-haven't you read all the posts -one after another by people who were mistreated by cvs????

awshucks 09-13-2009 10:28 AM

So, ever since CVS implemented new tax rules, I've been using an extra $1 ECB to help cover the tax and then I hand over my MQs. This usually results in me having a negative subtotal (about $1) and then tax brings me back to the positive. Recently, some of the cashiers at one store have refused to scan my last MQ saying that that would put me in the negative (even though I would still be in the positive after tax) and no amount of talking will change their minds.

What do you guys usually say? I guess I could just all together avoid this store but it's just down the street so it's a pain to have to avoid it.

wanderingwillow 09-13-2009 11:40 AM

^ I wouldn't say anything. I would just stop trying to use the Manuf's to dip into the tax for a while, and start back doing it in a month or so. This issue has been highilghted, and technically they're correct...so waiting it out, and trying again might be a good idea.

Oh, and if you have $2 in Manu coupons, you can't use, and you gave them $2 in ECBs, I would ask for that back, and for them to scan the Manu's....

ricecake 09-13-2009 11:52 AM

Are the oral and facial coupons from the CVS Ready Fill also beeping?

cdworkin 09-13-2009 12:02 PM

One last note for today.;) I used my 20% off my whole order that I got in the mail that was good for 9/12-9/13. It didn't calc the 20% correctly. The total before coupons and tax was $86 and it calculated $4.86 as the discount. I should just learn my lesson already and stop trying to do big transactions, they never work for me.

The 20% off pass was only supposed to work on non-sale items. Did you maybe only have $24.30 worth of items that weren't on sale?

Huh. Well what kind of silly coupon is that? Why would I ever buy stuff that is not on sale?!;)

savmom 09-13-2009 03:39 PM

Wasn't sure where to post this, but yesterday I went to use my raincheck for the 6.99 Glade candle from 2 weeks ago and the manager was hovering around coz the cashier wasn't sure how to do the ECB. I was also getting a bottle of Ajax and had the $1 Q from coupons.com Anyway, the manager refused to take either the $1 Ajax Q or the $3 Glade coupon from redplum saying that the tiny circles around the expiry date were supposed to be holograms. That they were copies, not by me but by coupons.com and redplum! I had never heard such a thing. I will be writing to CVS today to complain.

Question...

I bought two of the Kids Essentials Drinks today. I had a buy one, get one free Q, as well as a $5.00 Q. They are priced at $11.99.

1) The BOGO beeped.... they needed to scan the manager's card. I assume this is because of the high value? Is this correct?

2) The $5.00 Q beeped also... is this not allowed? The cashier pushed it through for me.

I wanted to get two more on my next run tomorrow, but now I am afraid to try it. I thought it was okay to use one $ amount Q with a BOGO. Am I wrong? I don't want to do something that is not allowed. Any help would be appreciated! :D

ESQKRW 09-13-2009 05:44 PM

I went to CVS today and asked the SA if they had any other coupon books because the readyfill coupons expired yesterday. She leaned over and whispered CVS takes expired coupons. :woot: I asked her when she was working again, she said Tuesday I told her see you then. ;)

Any coupon values at $10 or more beeps and has to have manager approval.

As for combining a $/? with a BOGO, that's a YMMV. My CVS let's me do that, but some don't.

No beeps on facial or nutrion/ diet either.

was getting confused, but i just used a very expired readyfill survey 5/25 and it went thru fine, no beeps. didn't try the coupons from the readyfill books tho..

schnauzermomma 09-13-2009 08:12 PM

4/20 Diet/Nutrition coupon from ReadyFill book did not beep today
4/20 any product did beep

And since someone pointed out that they respond negatively only to negative posts, because everybody always mentions their bad experiences with coupons at CVS, I must report that ALL of the cashiers and managers I dealt with today at CVS were most helpful, friendly and particularly nice. :)

Thanks, CVS, for all the great coupons. ;)

I was able to use my expired $10 ecb last night. I asked and they said yes. :)

Also, my latest $4 off $20 coupon has 13 digit coupon code and it's valid thru 9/21/09...does anyone know if it would beep if I try to use it more than once? Didn't try it last night cos I still have a bunch of $5/$25 readyfill coupons to use up before expiration on 9/15.

13 digit means one time use...so, yes, it would beep

I once started a thread about nice things about cvs employees- as i recall there were some positive posts and even on that thread some felt compelled to write negative things. The thread was soon buried and disappeared. I've had a few run ins, but for the most part the cvs employees I deal with are awesome!

Yes, me too, except at stores in horrible neighborhoods where they have so much vandalism and shoplifting to worry about I don't blame them for being cranky. The other day a nice old lady cashier got all excited about showing me how many ECB I had earned and circled them all in red for me so I wouldn't miss any - I guess she didn't realize that me paying less than a dollar for $25 of stuff meant I probably knew what I was doing. But it was a nice thought, anyway.

Thanks for your reply. Is that something new though? 13 digit $/$$ coupon? If so, I guess they only want us to use it once...

LOL that's cute. :bounce: I wonder what she would have thought if you had broken a big order down into multiple transactions.

The cashiers at the store I normally go to are used to me paying a little change for $25 or $30 worth of stuff. Sometimes when I get some especially good deals they cheer me on. :D

Thanks, I wasn't sure I could use all those $/$$ in one transaction. I'm obviously looking to buy some cheap diapers. Wish my PC didn't mess up printing the last $3 Glucerna or it would have been much cheaper.

I've seen the larger box of the arthritis hand/wrist patches (gold box) on 75% clearance at a few stores 'round these parts.

$8.99 reg price - $7.74 = $2.25 -$1 MFQ peelie - $1 CRT = $0.25

Nice filler if you need some.

5/25 from the readyfill quiz

harporrt 09-14-2009 03:04 PM

The 4/20 will beep, even if you try another cashier or another CVS. If you would like for it not to beep, use a 4/20 diet/nutrition, the oral care RF Qor any other specialty $/$$ in that booklet..... or the 5/25 cvs.com RF Q

What are the 2 generic CRTs this week? I'd have to drive 30 miles to hit a CVS with a coupon printer, so I like to know what the generic CRTs are to determine if it's worth the trip (I can get the non-generic CRTs on my receipt just by buying stuff, but it's not possible to get the generics without a coupon printer). Thanks!

breakingnews 09-14-2009 05:18 PM

Today at one store, I got bunch of new RIB coupon books, these coupons expires sometime in november. .

I just checked the flyer, there is no limit posted so the full 9.18 should come off. Just a FYI in case you don't know, when it is a BOGO sale, the free items do NOT count in your total towards a X/XX coupon. However if it is a BOGO coupon that you're using, the price of the free item DOES count towards it.

:omg: That $5.00 OsCal Q is awesome. There are $3.00 peelies on the larger packs but it's for any pack of OsCal. With $7.99 as the regular price for the smaller box, it makes it a $0.01 MM. I would kill for that CRT! Wish I could trade you for it somehow :lmao:

cool comment from a cashier today.
He told me "you're going to single-handedly get me to my coupon quota today!"
I was thinking "great, they now have a limit of how many coupons they can take..."
NOPE!
He tells me "we have to reach at least so many coupons per cashier per day"
AWESOME that a store is encouraging their customers to use coupons!!!!!

alanisrox69 09-14-2009 11:23 PM

The manager checked me out today and while in the past he had been nice (I've only had him once or twice, ever).......

I didn't have that big of an order, but, near the end he was like "What do you do with all of this?"......

I think that's sort of rude when they ask, it's not their business what I do with it. And again, it wasn't even a huge order lol.

Kinda turned me off.

Can you use the survey q for the $5/$25 more than once? A while back when I used it the cashier said I had already used it on that card (which I hadn't) but she pushed it through.

Only if it has a different bar code. You can not use a $5/$25 coupon with the same bar code twice or it will come up already used.

Follow the instructions here and you'll get coupons with different barcodes. Don't forget to rep usb for teaching us :hug:

The barcode will change only if you clean the cookies (look at the post above) otherwise every time you take the survey you'll have the same barcode.

I'm wondering if it's being tracked per Extracard card. I tried using one today that I had just generated yesterday using the link from a few posts back and the register beeped and said I had already redeemed it. I know I've used one of these once before but it was with a different bar code. She pushed it through, though, but it was a pain to deal with.

I've already used probably 20 on each card and never had a single beep. It doesn't matter when you generated the coupons (the same day or a week apart) they will have the same barcode if you don't clean the cookies.

lol true. i've used many of these. just used one that was expired 8/22 last night... no beeps and store takes expired coupons, so it didn't even matter. i think the best thing is to make sure u're not using the same barcodes again.

i've been taking the quiz, then i print to pdf. then i just make sure to open and check the pdfs to compare codes real quick in case it fails and uses the same code, but it doesn't and if it screws up, most of the time, it's because i forgot i already printed this one...and print the same thing again.

i've been taking the quiz, then i print to pdf. then i just make sure to open and check the pdfs to compare codes real quick in case it fails and uses the same code, but it doesn't and if it screws up, most of the time, it's because i forgot i already printed this one...and print the same thing again.

I do the quiz, print to pdf, open pdf and verify, then do the quiz again.
When I print my pdf out to paper to use at the store, I delete the saved pdf to make sure it doesn't get printed and used again

I purchased a RIB for the first time today. Cover says $25 in coupons and I totaled all of them and it only came out to $23.50! :mad: I checked 3 times and I am missing something!

PirateQueen 09-15-2009 07:23 PM

Was that just the ones on the cardstock? Usually there are a couple of q's printed on the regular pages too.

Nope... got the ones printed throughout the magazine also. BTW, two of the Q's on the cardstock were MQ's, not CVS Q's. Very disappointing, and again, false advertising!

I think that's sort of rude when they ask, it's not their business what I do with it. And again, it wasn't even a huge order lol.

Kinda turned me off.

I live in a remote place, so sometimes when I find a product, and the store has ample and especially when the coupon is nearing expiration i grab all i can.
well Sunday morning I was at Sweetbay- actually waiting for CVS to open to get my papers//and I saw they had more than enough of the toilet paper and paper towels that marcal had free coupons for...
so I snatched up 12 4 packs of toilet paper and 11 paper towels...
cashier asked me same question...
"what are you going to do with all of that?"
I just reponded..."most like the same thing you do with it, however its a crappy job, so lets not talk about it before breakfast."
arrrrrrrrrgh!

i thought the promotion for the softsoap ensambles was over along with the bodywashes since the beauty days promotion ended 9/12? but if it didn't finish yet.

i found some peelies buy a pump get a base free.

pump + base = 7.99+3.99 = 11.98

use: free base manuq peelie -3.99
use $2 cvsq for pump
use $2 cvsq for base
(and if the peelie is coded 01) use $2 manuq on the pump
total: 1.99oop, get 2 ecb for pump, 2 ecb for base

or if u can't find it...

you can buy pump at 7.99
base 3.99

use $2 manuq for pump
$2 manuq for base
$2 cvsq for base
$2 cvsq for pump
total: 3.98 oop get back 2 ecb for pump, 2 ecb for base.

i believe this is in the RIB.

as for is the base or pump producing, when the promotion was running, the base and pump was in the picture i think?... so i think it was both? but i also believe the promotion ended. i was just responding with a scenario for the question.

AMDGD 09-17-2009 02:35 PM

If you're referring to a generic $4/$20 from above and a category specific readyfill coupon such as a $3/$12 eye care then yes as long as you have $20 worth of merchandise of which $12 is eye care. But I've run across some cashiers who want $12 worth of eye care and an additional $20 of other merchandise. Don't forget that the readyfill coupons expired on 12 September so it may get rejected for that reason. As of last night it didn't beep for me.

If you get a $/$$ in your email, that shows your name on the coupon, you can change the $/$$ on it. The codes at the end - like 48056 for the 5/30 - determine the amount.

So I took the 5/30 with my name and changed the last numbers to 48058 to get the 4/20 with my name on it.

HTH!

For instance, the edge shave gel is 2/$5

- $1.50 (2 of the .75 MQ's)
= .50/2

But then you can say that it came in your email and has your name on it, which is the same on your ecbs. I've never had a problem after that.

PerlaAzul 09-17-2009 11:51 PM

I got a 5/20 coupon in my email today I'm assuming its from the time I had gotten that CRT that said to update your email address and turn it in to the cashier. Because the email says Thank You your first email is here and Thank You for registering to receive extracare email.

annie85 09-18-2009 06:25 AM

i bought eucerin today and my ECB didnt print. it still showed up on the bottom of the recept and i still hadnt reached the limit for it. anyone else have this issue?? i just had the manager print the ecb, ofcourse he said it didnt print becuz u used coupons lol!

metrowest 09-18-2009 07:14 AM

I haven't seen this posted elsewhere; sorry if it has already been reported.

In two of my stores, there are round cardboard bins in the front of the store with $1 Sally Hansen, La Cross and NYC items. The items are not clearance, but all have new barcode stickers on them which scan as $1. I have been using the $1 NYC q's from All You, and $1 and $2 tearpads for Sally Hansen to get FREE nail polish, lipstick, lip liner, tweezers, eye shadow, etc.

I am putting together a travel toiletry bag for my cousin for X-mas and these are great items. I have put together travel bags for people in the past and they are always very much appreciated. I get a nice toiletry bag from LL Bean and then fill it up with all the travel sizes that we get for free from CVS. It makes a great gift!

notice the lowercase letters, it's been changed from the caps, this is to make it gerneric ;) so it shouldn't be tied to a specific person, probably just a card no one ever registered :coverlaf: if you have your coupons sent to u, u can make em urs :nod:

Received the same q, but I never updated my email with them, so maybe they just randomly send these out.

2% off $98 = $1.98. You will get a ecb for $1.50. If you had spent $2 more, you would have got a $2 ecb.

Is there any other way to get this book? This is not the CVS I frequent, but the only one near me with the minute clinic. My CVS is awesome... Do you think I can get corporate to mail me a book? Any thoughts?

Check out the response I got from my e-mail:

Dear Ms. XXXXXX:

Thank you for contacting CVS/pharmacy. We have received your e-mail concerning the Egg Harbor Twp, NJ CVS/pharmacy.

Please accept my apology for the poor service you received from the Nurse Practitioner at the MinuteClinic at this location. I assure you this is type of service not tolerated in our stores. I have contacted the appropriate individuals that overseas our MinuteClinic locations and made them aware of your comments. We will address this matter with the Nurse Practitioner to correct this from recurring. I hope that you will give CVS/pharmacy another chance to prove that we are dedicated to customer service.


I will go ahead and mail you the coupon booklet to the address that you listed on your original e-mail. Please allow 5-7 business for delivery.

Thank you once again for bringing this matter to our attention. We value your patronage and look forward to serving you again. Should you have any additional concerns, please feel free to let me know.

Sincerely,

Lisa
CVS/pharmacy
Customer Relations Representative

I always print them black and white so far no problems. If your cashier has doubts just show him a pin number or id number on your coupon-they are unique.

i only use black and white printed coupons and don't have a problem. it'd be very expensive to use color to print all these coupons out! although in places like canada, they do not like printed coupons at all, very sad :(

CVS Coupon DISCUSSION questions scenarios chat for ALL coupons including Manufacturers that can be used at CVS
 
Its happened to me at target walmart and wags. I think they all just make up their own rules when they see that it can be free after the coupons I quit trying to call corporate so I just leave my reviews on the yahoo of the directory of whatever store it is because I know people read those. Nothing beats the target girl telling me I could only use one coupon a day though that was the best.

- $1.50 (2 of the .75 MQ's)
= .50/2

As MFH said, you can't use 2 emailed coupons in the same transaction, but if you really want only the edge shave gel, you CAN do 2 transactions to get the same price, as 2/$5 also means 1/$2.50.

ok i dont know where to post this and sorry if its not meant to be posted here.

All my cvs ECB's rang up as CVS coupons as opposed to CVS MFR coupons

has this happened to anyone else? also, this made my tax amt very low...

oh and i did 3 transactions and they rang up as CVS Coupons and im in NY if it helps...

ESQKRW 09-18-2009 04:48 PM

I have an ECB question. I was in CVS checking out and the cashier asked if I had ECB's and I said yes. I told him some are expiring soon so I need to get rid of them.. He said you can call and have them extend the expiration. Has anyone heard this before? I really need to know b/c I misplaced a few ECB's that expire next week.

In two of my stores, there are round cardboard bins in the front of the store with $1 Sally Hansen, La Cross and NYC items. The items are not clearance, but all have new barcode stickers on them which scan as $1. I have been using the $1 NYC q's from All You, and $1 and $2 tearpads for Sally Hansen to get FREE nail polish, lipstick, lip liner, tweezers, eye shadow, etc.....


For those who also shop Kmart, there are $1 coupons in the coupon book that are expiring 10/3. They are manufacturer coupons even though they do have a small K emblem on them. I'm going to check this out myself tomorrow since I have about 10 books and didn't use any of my Sally Hansen q's last K doubles.

Thanks for the info metrowest. Repped!

Okay, I just got off the phone with CVS about a transaction I did yesterday. I have a raincheck for an item that's regularly at $10.99 on sale for $6.99 and will give me $6.99 ECB. I was in a hurry out cause it was about to rain (I don't drive yet) and when I got home, I cut off the ECB parts from my receipt before I realized that my $6.99 ECBs never printed. I called today and the representative told me that they should've taken the $6,99 off my bill. I said I thought that it's supposed to print out my ECBs. She told me it's supposed to come off and to go back to the store. I have other RCs so I read the back and they're just supposed to print out my ECBs. She told me that she can't see my transactions until Monday. Should I go back to the store and tell them that this is the entry where the item was adjusted down but my ECBs didn't print out? I thought calling would be easier as the representatives can see the transactions and put ECBs in to print out on my next receipt? Anyone can help me?

When it is a raincheck, the ecb doesn't automatically print. You have to tell the cashier to print it manuelly.

I did, she was the manager as well but maybe she forgot? I don't know whether it's best to go back to the store or wait until Monday (I thought I read before that CVS CS reps can put the ECBs on your card for you in situations like this).

Question is how do they know you really have a raincheck for the item in hand?

You mean if I go back in? It just happened yesterday so htey can look it up and the item is normally $10.99 but the sale price was for $6.99 giving $6.99 ECBs. The manager had to adjust the amount down to adjust to the RC but didn't do the ECB part. My receipt shows the $4 taken off my item and I still have the ad.

EDITED TO ADD: I just didn't know which one would be easier to do, go back to the store or wait until Mnday to talk to a CS rep.

EDITED AGAIN TO ADD: I decided to call the store where they transferred me to the manager and she asked for my name cause apparently they have an unclaimed ECB sitting yesterday so I can go get it. Phew! I thought it was going to be more difficult than that but I was wrong! Thanks jenni for replying to my questions!

I got Sally Hansen $2 tearpads from CVS. Its written "any Sally Hansen product", but there's picture of "natural beauty" make-up product. Does it means $2 off "any Sally Hansen Natural Beauty product or $2 off any Sally Hansen product ?

Question about different expiration dates...

How do people for example, have $20 in ECBs expiring tomorrow? That means the last time they shopped must have been 9/08 right? or they didn't "roll" enough, from the previous weeks?

I'd think that usually it's from not being able to roll enough in the past 4 weeks. Personally, I tend to maintain from $70 all the way to $130 in ECBs on my card - but I'm only able to roll maybe $20 a week, since the deals aren't always that good. And it's certainly not from lack of trips to CVS - I'll still do maybe 4 or more transactions a week. But any time I'm using ECBs, they're usually expiring within the next week or 2 - I'm certainly never "caught up" enough to be able to use any of my ECBs that are expiring 3-4 weeks out!

How do you manage to maintain higher amounts like that? I'd be sooo happy with 20-30! All I can ever do is usually $5-$10, some weeks much less. Some weeks, my OOP is good, $4 or less total for the week, other (most) weeks its higher, $12 or even up to $42 one week. I just can't seem to get how you all figure the deals. A sample deal will say "use 8 ECB" after it lists the Qs, but it's hard to do when you only have 2 or 3 ECBs so the balance comes OOP. Any help will be much appreciated.

Heh, I started hardcore CVSing last Thanksgiving when there were oodles of moneymaker deals, since lots of FAECB items had corresponding coupons too. I always stuck to never paying OOP - would only buy the things I could cover with ECBs. But the ECBs just went up and up, since for example, I'd use a $5 ECB to buy a $7 item that I had a $2 coupon for - and then the item would give me $7 back, so I'd have turned my $5 into $7.

I never started using $/$$'s until I had enough ECBs to not have to pay OOP after using one. Instead, I'd just buy 1 moneymaker item at a time...but just by doing that, I was able to work my way up quickly enough to start using $/$$'s. Again, I was doing this around Thanksgiving and Christmas time when the deals were good; on the other hand, the current week, last week, next week, etc., aren't nearly as conducive to this unfortunately. (But don't worry, Thanksgiving is just around the corner, and I'm sure CVS will have great deals again then! ;))

Anyway, once I got to a sizeable amount of ECBs (e.g., $20 or so) to be able to comfortably use $/$$'s, the $/$$'s really helped a lot to get my ECBs up even more. Buy $$ worth of FAECB items, use a $/$$, and you've immediately made $ profit.

I was up to about $130 in ECBs a couple weeks ago, since we'd been having some nice moneymaker weeks - in particular, I remember stuff like Poise and Carefree being wonderful moneymakers. Having the unlimited Readyfill $5/$25's lately certainly didn't hurt either!

Again, since the deals more recently haven't been nearly as good, I've just been burning my near-expiring ECBs on stuff we can use - for example, I've gotten a ton of Progresso and Jack Link's jerky in the past week. Of course, I still used a $5/$25 with every transaction and mixed with some freebie/near-freebie deals (Listerine, Glucerna, Air Wick, Dove deodorant) to not lose as many ECBs.

I'm down to less than $70 now in ECBs, which is actually the lowest I've been in months - though honestly, that makes me happier because it's less stress trying to roll all the time (especially since the unlimited $5/$25's are now drying up :sadwalk:). But I know that good weeks will come by again, and I'll be able to work my way up again. ;)

Anyway, I don't know if that's all that helpful - basically, I'd just say to not worry too much when you see others' scenarios and can't copy them because you just don't have the ECBs (yet) to do the same thing without OOP. Just stay at it, do the deals you can with the ECBs you have, and when the good weeks come along, take advantage of the moneymaker deals to work your ECBs up. Once you reach some critical threshold (I'd say for me, it was probably around $15-$20), you'll then have enough ECBs to do whatever you want. :) Good luck! :heart:

I think the person having a hard time rolling the $20 ECB is because it is 1 ECB for $20, which is harder to get rid of.

I don't like having a high dollar ECB and I learned the hard way, that it is better to spread out some deals across multiple transactions so it doesn't print one large ECB, instead of a couple of smaller ones.

Wow I cant wait for these good times you speak of. lol I got into CVS a few weeks when they had the Glade deal, it was a very good week since I started with no ECB'S. I now have $30 ECB's and counting. Two thing I feel have helped me. 1) I got a gc from a prescription so any oop I used the gc and 2) rainchecks. I realized they come in handy when you need to reach a certain amount or if you are waiting for the right q's to pair the items with.

Thank you so much- I always feel like I HAVE to use the 3/15 or 5/25 or whatever that I have in addition to the ECBs, and that I HAVE to do every deal that I can. I've been doing this since July and have gotten lots of stuff, but have spent more than I really should have. And I spend a lot of time in the stores figuring out my transactions, too. Hopefully with the holiday season coming up like you said, it will get easier for me. I guess I need to take the pressure off myself and work on spending as little OOP as possible instead of getting as much stuff as possible. Will rep you as soon as I figure out how to. Just repped you- that was easier than I thought it would be. :)
Thanks again.

I have found that 100 ebs in the kitty are no better than 20 for the purpose of doing deals assuming you have all available coups-when I have all the coups I hardly ever can use more than 10 ebs in 1 transaction and usually it is 5 or less-it is a very rare occasion I use 20

noungning 09-19-2009 07:24 PM

wow for someone to have an ECB amounting $20? thats high lol must've done 2 activas at once? :dontknow:

i tend to burn my extra bucks because i get needy and want this and that... and end up spending it all, i just almost spent all my ECBs again, was back down to 6.99 today lol.

I wish I could get needy, lol...a lot of times, I just want to quit because this takes up so much of my time, but I just don't know what I'd spend my ECBs on! I'm currently out of school, unemployed, and don't live with family (just DBF, whom I sometimes don't even spend much time with) - basically, I usually do nothing but CVS all day. :crazy:

(A slight exaggeration, but sadly it's not that much of an exaggeration either, lol. I do go deal-hunting at a few other stores too - Rite Aid, Harris Teeter, etc. - but none to the extent of CVS, and I swear I don't do all that much else in my life either. So maybe this is a warning that y'all don't want to have as many ECBs as I do - it's really difficult to go on with life once you do!)

But yeah, I mean, as I said, I only live with DBF, and frankly we already have at least 20x more of everything (toothpaste, shampoo, deodorant, even food items like candy, soup, crackers, cereal) than we could possibly need - in some cases, we probably have 100x too much. :crazy: So anything I could possibly buy from CVS, I already have way too much of (I even have nutso stuff like a Leg Magic Ultra, and most of the furniture and small appliances in my house are RTH brand, as sad as that sounds) - so what could I possibly burn my ECBs on?! Ugh, give me a way out, pleeeaaase...

That's exactly why I save mine as soon as they are posted to this thread.
I also post a friendly reminder to others to do the same because you never know when CVS will take down the links

I'm currently out of school, unemployed, and don't live with family (just DBF, whom I sometimes don't even spend much time with) - basically, I usually do nothing but CVS all day. :crazy:

(A slight exaggeration, but sadly it's not that much of an exaggeration either, lol. I do go deal-hunting at a few other stores too - Rite Aid, Harris Teeter, etc. - but none to the extent of CVS, and I swear I don't do all that much else in my life either. So maybe this is a warning that y'all don't want to have as many ECBs as I do - it's really difficult to go on with life once you do!)

But yeah, I mean, as I said, I only live with DBF, and frankly we already have at least 20x more of everything (toothpaste, shampoo, deodorant, even food items like candy, soup, crackers, cereal) than we could possibly need - in some cases, we probably have 100x too much. :crazy: So anything I could possibly buy from CVS, I already have way too much of (I even have nutso stuff like a Leg Magic Ultra, and most of the furniture and small appliances in my house are RTH brand, as sad as that sounds) - so what could I possibly burn my ECBs on?! Ugh, give me a way out, pleeeaaase...

haha! i always have to burn, 1) weekend newspaper 2) sister's needs - not on sale eye lashes, not on sale eye liner :omg: 3) milk

it tends to burn and i'm left with like so little and have to restrategize for it to pump back up pass $10 haha

They always take them down on Sunday. I usually PDF them right away, but since I have the 5 off 25 Redi Fill quiz I haven't had the need to save them. The only one I really wanted is the Softsoap. :o(

How do people for example, have $20 in ECBs expiring tomorrow? That means the last time they shopped must have been 9/08 right? or they didn't "roll" enough, from the previous weeks?

I have $120 in EBs on one card that I roll.. so it is easy if you're doing deals at other stores and the deals @ CVS are lame.. to be close to expiration date on EBs.. luckily my stores take expireds, so I don't freak out too much.. But I am always scared they will stop accepting expireds, so I try not to let them expire too often.

Anyway, the more $$ you have in EBs, the hardest it is to roll.. especially if you're concentrating on deals at other stores as well..

i tend to burn my extra bucks because i get needy and want this and that... and end up spending it all, i just almost spent all my ECBs again, was back down to 6.99 today lol.

2 L'Oreal deals in one transaction, so I could use a $off$$ coupon = $20 in one EB! Usually not that hard to spend a $20 EB for me, but this week I thought it was..turns out I was wrong and it wasn't hard @ all, since I did the soda deal..

Can anyone confirm whether the oral care $2 off $10 is beeping today (Sunday)? I know it was still working on Saturday night, but I'm looking for anyone who tried it today. Thanks!

I'm going to check this out myself tomorrow since I have about 10 books and didn't use any of my Sally Hansen q's last K doubles.

Thanks for the info metrowest. Repped!

There are Sally Hansen Natural Beauty lip glosses in the $1 bin, but it sounds as though you coupon would work on any (2) $1 Sally Hansen products.

There is also an IP for Natural Beauty here [epsiloninteractive.com]. I believe it is for $3, but I have not printed it.

I also got $1 IP off any Sally Hansen, I thought from cvs.com, buy now I can't find it again. Perhaps someone else knows where it came from.

Was it pushed through or was it a no go?

Does your store normally accept expired CVS q's or ecb's?

Yeah, they usually do but it depends on the cashier. Didnt push it because I was already using a 5/25 survey coupon that expired a couple days ago but went through fine.

I got that message this morning too when I tried to get the coupons from the email from CVS.
But I just tried my email links and the links posted on this thread again and they are working right now.
