The order of the coupons does matter...

You'll need this info when shopping at CVS

The order of the coupons and ECBs you give the cashier are important.

Have you ever been to CVS and starting giving manufacturer coupons to try and pay for your items, and THEN the $ off $$ coupon and they just give it right back and say "Your order total is less than $$." - then they make you buy something else before you can use your coupon. Which, totally messed up the good deal you were trying to get??? Well, read on.....

Point number 1:
If you are going to use the $ off $$ CVS coupons make sure to hand them those coupons first.
Do not just hand over all your coupons and ECBs over to the cashier at should hand over the $ off $$ first, then ECB's, then manufacturer coupons.

This is effectively only taxing things after applying the coupon, which brings us to point 2:
The tax on your order is first calculated when all the items have been scanned. Then, as you hand over the your CVS coupons and ECBs, your total gets reduced by the coupon amount times (1+tax rate), not just the value of those coupons.

Point 3:
ECBs also reduce your order total by the ECB amount time (1+tax rate).
To sum it all up the order to hand things in does matter, but you should also be aware that ECBs and CVS coupons are actually worth more than what they are advertised as...they knock off tax in addition. Manufacturer coupons only take off the advertised coupon amount. Given this, hand over: 1. CVS coupons, 2. ECBs, then 3. manufacturer coupons to ensure you get most of the taxes reduced as well.

Happy CVS-ing!

CVS 6/15- 6/21

CVS looks fairly dull this week (at least to me).
There are still a few deals to be had if these fall in to your need category.
I'm pretty much stocked up on EVERYTHING we use right now.
But, I'll still be happy to help put some deals together for you.
If you see something in the ad here that looks good to you let me know.

Well, all of our precious $3/$15 and $5/$15 coupons have expired.
But....never fear..... Update your email address on your CVS online account, and voila! You'll receive you're very own $4/$20 CVS coupon, via email, to print and use.
Now, this only works if you haven't updated your email in a while, otherwise people would be updating every week to get a new coupon. So I suggest only doing it in dire times, like these, when there are no other $/$$ coupons available.

Some items of note with coupon match-ups:

Buy two $5 Gold Emblem Candy (Jumbo 40% Bag) = $10
Use $3 off $10 CVS coupon (when you swipe your card at the store)
Use $1 off Gold Emblem Candy (when you swipe your card at the store)
Subtotal: $10
Less coupons: $4
Total: $6 plus tax
Earn $5 ECBs (Buy $10 worth of candy get $5 ECBs)

Transaction #2 -
Buy two Sally Hansen Color Quik Pen at $7.99 = $15.98
Use $3 off two Sally Hansen products printable here
Use (2) $2 off Sally Hansen from SS 3/30/08
Subtotal: $15.98
Less coupons: $7
Total: $8.98
Earn $10 ECBS (Earn $5 ECBs for each Quik Pen)

Transaction #3 -
Buy 2 Alavert at $6.99 = $13.98 (earns $5 ECBs)
Use 2 (two) $4 off Alavert coupons here ($8 total in coupons)
Total = $5.98
Earn $5 ECBs

Transaction #4 -
Buy 1 Tylenol at $4.49 each
Use $1 off Tylenol coupon here
Total = $3.49
Earn $2 ECBs

I would work them in to deals like this so I could take advantage of the $4 off $20 CVS coupons:

Deal #1:
Buy two Sally Hansen Color Quik Pen at $7.99 = $15.98
Buy 1 Tylenol at $4.49 each
Subtotal: $20.47

Use $4/$20 CVS coupon
Less manufacturer coupons: $8
Total: $8.47 OOP (*use previous ECB's if you have them)
Earn $12 ECBS (Earn $5 ECBs for each Quik Pen & $2 for Tylenol)

Deal #2:
Buy 2 Alavert at $6.99 = $13.98 (earns $5 ECBs)
Buy two $5 Gold Emblem Candy (Jumbo 40% Bag) = $10
Subtotal: $23.98
Use $4/$20 CVS Coupon
Less Other coupons: $12
Total: $7.98 (*Use ECB's from previous transaction the $5 & the $2)
Pay $.98 OOP
Earn $10 ECB's ($5 for the candy and $5 for the Alavert)

So spend $9.45 or less out of pocket and still have $15 ECB's for next week!

Here are some other ways to work it depending on the coupons you have:
Again, I made these scenarios around the $4/$20 update coupon.

Transaction 1:
$6.99 Almay One Coat Mascara (earns $5, limit 2)
$6.99 Alavert 12-15ct
$6.99 Alavert 12-15ct (earns $5, limit 1)
Total before coupons: $20.97
-$4/$20 update coupon
-$1 Almay (from 3/9 SS or 5/18 SS)
-$4 Alavert printable
*-$4 Alavert printable
*$7.97 after coupons, earns $10 ECBs
Transaction 2:

$5.99 Oral-B Cross Action Power Toothbrush (earns $3, limit 5)
$5.99 Oral-B Cross Action Power Toothbrush (earns $3)
Total before coupons: $19.97

-$2 Sally Hansen* (from 3/30 SS)
-$1 Tylenol printable (or from 4/6 SS or 5/4 RP)
-$2 off CVS Skincare printable
$11.66 after coupons, earns $12
This week's totals:
ECBs spent: $35.87
ECBs earned: $44.00
Spent OOP: $0,
earn $8 ECBs!

A few pointers about this week's coupons::: You can print the Alavert coupon more than once if you fill in the form with different info in order to get a different barcode. I would keep your name the same but change everything else. It won't beep if you try to use coupons with the same barcode but the store won't get reimbursed for it. If that happens enough, stores choose not to accept internet printables anymore!

:: If you don't have enough (or any!) $2 off coupons for the Sally Hansen nail color, there is a $3/2 printable available here. You'll have to rework your deals a little bit, but you should still be able to get these free or more than free!

:: The Beauty Handbook printable coupons (Sally Hansen and the CVS Skincare) print HUGE at the default (100%) size, and will cut off part of the coupon.
Reduce the print size to 50% before printing to correct this problem.
