When I switched jobs in October, one thing that fell by the wayside was reading the CVS & Walgreens ads on Sunday. My favorite place to check the CVS ad is at the iheartcvs website. Granted, I made more money in my new job than I lost by missing deals at CVS, but with summer on the horizon and the end to paychecks until September, it’s time to get back in the habit again.
I won’t go to CVS just to get a 2 litre of soda for .69 cents, but some weeks the forces of nature and marketing come together to have several deals worth a trip. I look for things that we can use within a few months; I can’t deal with stockpiling toothpaste under my bed. Recent finds were things like:
- Easter M&Ms, 75% off (1.05/bag for the big bag) PLUS I had a coupon for $1.00 off two bags of M&M/Mars products, so that makes two full size bags at about .50 each
- Kleenex – 1.34 each plus CVS coupon for $1.00 off two = .84 ea
- Listerine deal last week, 2/10.00, plus 5.00 back, plus stacked CVS and Manufacturer coupons brought a very low price.
CVS now has an app for Apple users. You can view your offers on the app instead of on those L-O-N-G sheets of coupons that print at the scanning machine. I also like being able to have the cashier scan my card from the iPhone rather than searching for my house keyring. Now through August when you download the CVS app you get $ 3.00 in ExtraBucks. Nice!
Do you partake of CVS or Walgreen’s deals? Walgreens drives me nuts because things are never in stock and their coupon policies are never completely clear to me.
Glad to know that I’m not the only one who habitually reads the ads on Sunday. We don’t have a CVS close but we do have a Riteaid. I check that, Kmart, Dollar General, Target and a couple of others each week. Sometimes I don’t find a thing, but once in a while the planets align! 😉
My neighbor brings us the guts of the paper… He is only interested in the news. I don’t think he was even aware of the coupons in there!
I’ve been using the WalMart savings catcher because I only have to go to one store.
