    Nancy -- I know -- I have been doing one every 2-3 weeks lately because of going back to work. I have to use up my ECB & +ups I think and just not do them. It has become too stressful ;)

    That's a shame steph :( I haven't been doing many deals so I wasn't aware of the changes.

  • stephlw Jul 13, 2012

    Nancy -- no, neither way works anymore ;( So bummed -- had my transaction worked out perfectly but it didn't work.

    Hi Steph - I agree. It seems like CVS has changed the way they calculate taxes. I used to do ECB then coupons too, but it doesn't work for me anymore either.

    steph, I thought it was coupons first, then ECB's and that would take care of tax?

  • stephlw Jul 13, 2012

    You used to be able to give them your ECB and then the coupons which you could use up until the last cent, sometimes only having to pay a few cents of tax. Now the regular coupons won't do that and you have to pay the full tax.

    shephlw-what has changed? I haven't used ECBs in a month or so...

  • stephlw Jul 13, 2012

    Has anyone else had problems at CVS using coupons & ECB? I used to be able to "eat the tax" with coupons and now the register is not allowing it. I had a frustrating time because I didn't know it has changed!

    nakabi-Yep, the manager at the Homestead Market store told me in person that they would accept the BB&B coupon.
