CVS tip

At CVS, I always scan my card 2-3 times at their coupon machine. I scan until it tells me it has no more coupons for me. I usually get 1-2 I can use that trip and the other 5-10 of them don't match up the sales I want to do then. I have been throwing them away, especially at the expiration date printed on them. 
I had kept a scanner coupon that was $5 off $30 any baby purchase and it expired 10-10. 
On 10-13, I was doing the the Huggies deal and saw I still had that baby coupon. I asked the cashier about it and she said it was store policy to honor expired CVS coupons, she thought the policy was for 2 weeks after the expiration but that she would always honor them up to a month past expiration. 

The Huggies deal was already good and another $5 off made it great!

So, I will be holding on to these scanner coupons, just in case they will match up with a deal even after their expiration date. 

I will add that the CVS I shop at is very customer and coupon friendly. I've heard that other stores are not so user friendly and that is a shame. So this may not work at every CVS but it wouldn't hurt to ask.

  1. What a great deal...and how nice that they take the expired coupons! The only place I know that does that here is Bed Bath and Beyond!

  2. I will check to see if my CVS is as nice to its customers. I have a feeling they might not be!!! I scan my card 2 or 3 times too and save the ones I can't use that day until later when a sale goes with them.

  3. Your store does sound really friendly! I really need to start watching the Wal Greens and CVS.

  4. Ours is friendly too. One time I handed the cashier an expired coupon that I hadn't noticed was expired and she told me it was, but that they honor it up to two weeks past the date. Boy, was I surprised!
