CVS - 3 trips this week

I went to CVS 3 times this week and spent about $18 cash on 3 transactions.
I used some newpaper coupons, some internet coupons, coupons from the CVS scanner and some discounts CVS emailed me.  
I learn about the CVS sales from their ads and I learn how to combine coupons with CVS deals from several online sources. 
A YouTube channel called LASavings8 has great match ups. 
There are several Facebook groups with lots of deal match ups too - couponing at CVS seems to be the most active.  
If you are interested in shopping at CVS, first go to a nearby CVS and get an ExtraCare card.  Then scan it in the store for CVS coupons.  Also register that ExtraCare online either at CVS.com or use the CVS app if you have a smart device.  Also sign up for CVS beauty bucks club and if you fill prescriptions there, sign up for those rewards too.  
2.77 for this trip

$12.46 for this trip

$2.96 for this trip. Plus, I have $13 in ExtraCare bucks for my next trip to CVS.

I live just a few miles from CVS and go by it just doing about any errand so getting there is very convenient for me.  
You may notice there is no sales tax on my receipts, my husband is a disabled veteran and our state gives us exemption.  

I've managed to build up some stockpiles with CVS deals.  We have at least a years supply of toilet paper, hair and oral care products, skin care and bath soaps and shower gels, laundry products and make up.  We've got lots of diapers too but it is hard to gauge how long they will last as 2 grands are still in diapers and 2 more will be born soon. 

This does take some time and organization and a little frustration when a deal doesn't work like I expected or the items are out of stock.  Still, I have fun doing it and it really helps our budget.

  1. Nice work! I always great that CVS has great sales/coupon match ups, but there's not really one on my way to anywhere. I'll have to start researching because it sounds worth it.

  3. I am so bad about properly tracking my CVS coupons. They're really great about them and I love ExtraCare rewards. I'm always so astounded at how much talented couponers can get for so little cash.

  7. I wish we had coupons! it seems if you are diligent about it you can get great deals. We dont have them :(
    Instead I have a lot of places I check for markdowns and I have fairly good luck. Groceries are expensive. Anything to keep the cost down is a huge benefit!xxx

  8. I love doing the CVS deals. I bought diapers this week too. The Huggies Slip On diapers were only $2.99 and the $2.00 coupon worked on them. I didn't know this until the cashier rang them up. I had to go back and get another pack so that I reached the $30.00 threshhold. They may be on clearance. Not sure, since the other styles were $8.99.
