cvs part 1

I hope you are ready to learn something new. At least it was new to me. There are three CVS pharmacies in the vicinity these days, and I had never been in any of them. Until January 21st. That is the day it all started. I am not sure now how I found out about it, but I did. If you are not brand loyal-I am Not, and you have room to stockpile, you can save mucho bucks with the current CVS system. I really don't care where you currently buy the following list of items, you can save doing it this way.


  • Toilet Paper, paper towels, tissue
  • Laundry soap, dish soap, dishwasher detergent, cleaning supplies
  • Body lotion, shampoo, conditioner, razors, blades, bathing supplies
  • Toothpaste, tooth brushes, dental floss
  • Vitamins
  • Aspirin/painkiller, cold medicine, fiber supplements

Even if you are brand loyal, if it is a brand carried by CVS you will probably have opportunities to save big time.

You need to get a CVS ExtraCare card. You can do it online or at the store. If you fill out the form at the store you can start using it immediately. Once you have a card, you sign up online for the email offers and they send you an email with a $4 off of $20 purchase coupon. You can make multiple copies of this and use it until it expires. There will be others later, but this is your first MONEY OFF coupon. This month, March 08, there is a $5 off of $15 available on various websites.

Tip #1- Try and keep your total purchase above but as close to the amount of your money off coupon as possible. This is your total before coupons.

Tomorrow I will talk about ECB's or Extra Care Bucks. Here is what I got for 24 cents today. I actually really like the benefiber chewables!

Twenty Four Cents?? You are amazing! We do not have CVS in California as far as I know. If you find out how to do this at Long's, I'd sure like to know. :-)
