More Fun at CVS
Posted on Friday, January 30th, 2009 at 7:28 pm
CVS has just released their February monthly Extra Care Bucks (ECB) list. There’s some really great match ups here for coupons.
They’ve had a lot of deals for toothpaste lately. This month, get $2 ECBs when you buy colgate total 7.6-11 oz. Use the .75 coupon that was in Smart Source 1/18, or the one for $1 that will appear in Sunday’s paper. And this week, when you buy $15 worth of colgate palmolive products, you get $5 ECBs. Since the Colgate total (6 oz) is 2 for $5 this week, you can use those coupons to buy the toothpaste on sale. Other products in this promotion are Colgate 2 in 2, Colgate 360 toothbrush, or any max fresh paste or brush, 2 for $5, Speedstick deodorant 2 for $5, Softsoap Elements liquid hand soap for $1, Palmolive dishwashing liquid for .97, Fabuloso or Murphy oil soap 2 for $5, Suavitel Fabric softener 2 for $7, and Soft Soap or Irish spring body wash 2 for $7 or 3 pk Irish Spring bar soap $2. Now here’s how this stacking up works:
Purchase $15 of the above listed products. YOur choice.
Use the following coupons on your selected purchases:
$.75 or $.75/2 Speed stick (SS 2/1)
$.75 or $1.00 any Colgate (SS 1/18, 2/1)
$.35/1 Softsoap (SS 2/1)
$.75 softsoap body wash (SS 2/1)
$1 Softsoap bodywash printable
$.50 Irish Spring 3pk (SS 2/1)
$.25 Pamolive (SS 2/1)
Depending on how many coupons you have, and how many of each product you buy, your savings will vary. Just imagine stocking up on Palmolive at that price – assuming the store does not have limits – and then deducting coupons – and then getting $5 back in ECBs.
Some other ECB deals this week are
$5 ECB when you buy 2 Theraflu or triaminic. You can use a $2 Theraflu printable, $1.50 Theraflu (SS 1/4), $1.50 Triaminic Printable, and $1 Triaminic (SS 1/04)
$1 ECB when you buy Welches grape juice 64 oz (limit one)
$2.49 ECB when you buy Excedrin 10 count vial. This makes it free.
NOw what do you do with those ECBs? You bring them back to CVS NEXT WEEK, pair up sales, coupons, and ECB offers – and pay for what you buy with ECBs. Then do the same thing again and again.
Meantime, you are accumulating quarterly ECBs on every item you purchase, 2% on your purchases minus coupons.
You cannot use ECBs to pay for prescriptions, tobacco, alcohol, prepaid cards, giftcards, stamps, lottery, or money orders. But you can use them to pay for just about everything else in the store.
