    ssan, Welcome to this blog! Here is a list of couponing abbreviations you will want to know. You can find this link to this list on the front page of the Smart Shopper blog in teh Smart Shopper Resources to the right. Here is the direct link:

    CVS EB or ECB = Extrabucks, their rewards program.

    ZVR = Zavers, the Harris Teeter e-coupon portal found through your account at It allows you to add e-coupons to your Harris Teeter card if you are an e-Vic member. You can couple the ZVR e-coupons with hard copy manufacturer's coupons for some really great deals!

    You may want to read the other information about drug store and grocery store policies and reward programs in the Smart Shopper Resources section, as well.

    Thank You so much Tiki!
    I saved over $40 at Wal- Mart in coupons tonight - the free pods and the various pet supplies using mailed coupons from Pet Smart, internet printed coupons and "peelies" !
    The prices compared to the prices at Pet Smart saved me an additional $17 for a Total savings of $57 .

    Thank You ! Thank You !

    I am new to this site and wanted to know if anyone could tell me what CVS EB and ZVR stands for?
    Also, I don't get the coupons on Wednesday anymore, anyone know how I can get these again?

    Wal-Mart has "Try Me Free' peelies on Tide Pods .

    Wal Mart also took all the coupons I got in a mailer from Pet Smart !
    ( $3 off Tidy Cat, $2 off Fancy Feast canned ,$4 off Fancy Feast Dry , $3 off Friskies , $3 off Alpo , $5 off total purchase over $10 )
    3 of those items had peelies so they came off my purchase too!

    Rant-I went to two stores today (walmart and cvs) and at both stores, my cashiers insisted that I have to purchase the product shown in the picture on the coupon. The "kicker" to me was that in both instances, I was buying the same product as pictured, just a different flavor/variety! Both coupons also said "any" product but anyways...that is what I get for 1. shopping at walmart, and 2. not my home cvs that knows me.
