Check out CVS this week

I'm not sure this works everywhere in the country. But in my circular, on page 3, there is a deal that if you buy $20 worth of certain Kraft products (there is a large selection), you get a $20 ECB coupon back! That's $20 you get to spend on anything you want on a future visit to the store. I stocked up on a few things, and even treated the family to Oreo cookies (I rarely buy stuff like that).

You have to sign up to get the ECBs, but it's free (of course) and easy. And the best ECBs are the ones you can spend on anything. I have another $5 one, so now I have $25 to spend. I'm waiting for the summer stuff to go cheaper (sorry, but 25% isn't 'clearance' to me, LOL!) so I'll get a few things for next year. I don't know what else I'll get, though.

(One thing you should know, if you've never done this...ECBs, which stands for Extra Care Bucks,do have expiration dates!)

I hope everyone who reads my blog--all eleven of you, LOL--gets a great deal this week, at CVS or elsewhere!

I saw the sales paper yesterday and plan to do the $20.00 deal! You can't beat that. Also there is more free toothpaste (after EB)I have $6.50 in EBs on hand. I was planning to use it toward the $20.00 and only have to pay $13.50. Which summer clearance stuff do you plan to buy? I need to check out the selection to be ready when it is marked down as cheap as it can get.

That IS a great deal. My hubby is the most frugal one of all...so I bet he's already come across this. Although, if not, I will certainly check it out for us!! haha. TFS :)

Great find! I wonder if the CVS here is like that. Worth checking into.

Thank you for sharing this!

Yes great deals. I went to my CVS and they were sold out. I plan to go back on Friday. I enjoyed my visit with you.
Blessings,

I just found your blog, and I love it! I did the CVS deal on Sunday, got some cereal and triscuits. I have a t-shirt sitting around that I picked up on clearance there, I bought it to cut up and redo for myself, but I still haven't found the courage...

Rebecca said...

Great tip! And I'm with you 25% does not a clearance make!!

Great tip! We are all about CVS....it seems like I'm always making my husband "run by" there on his way home from work! They have had awesome coupons/gift cards in the past. Thanks for stopping by my site and for leaving a comment!

We don't have CVS where I live...wahh! Otherwise, I think I'd be an ECB-using fiend! LOL :)

I never use my ECB I usually just trash them, are they transferable if I wanted to give them to someone else do you know?
