Free Always at CVS with kiosk coupon!

Posted August 29, 2011

There are reports that the coupon kiosk in CVS stores is spitting out a coupon for a FREE Always 20 count pantiliners! 

Thanks to Michelle, who posted this on the WRAL Smart Shopper Facebook page: "The Magic coupon machine is printing out free 20ct. Always pantiliners, $1.00 off Orbit Singles 14.ct., BOGO 14-17 oz. Life Savers, Starburst, or Skittles, and Spend $50 on Olay, Clairol, Crest, or Old Spice and get $5.00 off."

I'm heading over to CVS about 2 today and will report back about my coupons. Hopefully we all get the freebie (or at least everyone who can use it!).

    The coupon kiosk printed out a coupon for a free package of huggies diapers for me today b/c I had bought 6 packages in the past. Wow was I shocked!! I got a pack of over night huggies diapers which are normally 11.99 for .78!!

    You may want to speak with the store managers or call corporate about that, rachelray.

    In Durham I have tried repeatedly to get the Reinventing Beauty magazine; however at the stores I have checked (about 3-4 of them now, the only issue they have is the one whose couponse expired 2/28/11. Any others close to the Durham/Morrisville area with updated magazines? Thank you!!

    cuttinup - it may help you to read this info about the drug store reward programs:

    It can also be found on the front page of the blog in one of the 5 boxes under the 2 post.

    You can use the ECB's to buy basically anything in the store except alcohol, stamps, prscriptions and some other things indicated on the ECB. Most couponers use their ECB's that they earned this week to buy the ECB generating items on sale the next week. We "roll" our ECB's each week into other deals that generate more ECB's so our out of pocket is very low. Read the rest of the info in the article link above to get you started. Have fun! :-)

    when they had the freebie coupon for the candy bar and the cvs ban aids and they ran out , the cashier told me that I could substitute as long as it is the same brand, like the hershey and within the price range, like the cvs bandages...check with your cvs...they might have different rules at different stores...btw I only got the save $5.oo with the Olay and other items...

    I got the coupon. There were not that many left at the CVS I visited this morning.

    I did get the free Always pads and there was 1 little package left on the shelf! :-)

    I also received a coupon for a FREE Reinventing Beauty Magazine! It's a CVS magazine with some good coupons in it. They don't have the Sept issue in the stores yet but the manager thought it would be in on the Friday truck. The coupon does not expire until 9/12.

    ALSO - the summer clearance is 75% oss at the 40/42 store! Lots of bubbles, flip flops, towels, plastic cups and plates and some toys and pool stuff.
