    dkg - I often see signage issues the first day or two of the drug store sales. Glad the price was correct on your receipt!

  • dkg0502 May 10, 2010

    nevermind! I was just looking over my receipt before tossing it and they did ring correctly at $1 each...but apparently they were not signed correctly.

  • dkg0502 May 10, 2010

    carefree at my CVS was $1.59 each, not $1.00 like you had said, Faye...what am I missing? Do CVS's have different prices depending on locations?

  • Faye Prosser - Smart Shopper May 10, 2010

    Sonya - I am so sorry! Do you get home delivery of the N & O? If so, call them and they should send you the coupons. There was one section this week.

    I always recommend that if you don't have home delivery and you buy the paper at a store, make sure you go inside to buy it from the rack in the store so you can make sure the coupons are in the paper. Sometimes the non-home delivery papers don't have the coupons.

  • Faye Prosser - Smart Shopper May 10, 2010

    Thanks for the Viactiv deal, senglish!

    Dreamchaser, if you go to the front page of the smart shopper blog, there is a box with couponing abbreviations that will help you decipher the couponing code.

    rduyall, I am not amused that the N & O did not get the schick coupon that so many other parts of the country got. But, other papers did get it so I included the deal. Sorry I didn't clarify that the N & O did not have the great coupon.

    Nancy - thanks for explaining the abbreviations! I really like the Infusium and .99 is a great price so I will also be getting some at Rite Aid (for free using a gift card, of course! LOL).

    I was happy to see they had good stock at my CVS yesterday. I was able to get the 2 tubes of Crest, 2 Pantene, 6 Carefree, 1 U by Kotex, 2 right guard and 3 Mentos for less than $2.50 and I earned $18.99 in ECB's to use next week.

    Subtotal before coupons: $33
    Total Paid: $2.50
    Total ECB's Earned: $18.99

    Good day at CVS!

  • sonjatilley May 10, 2010

    My local paper had ABSOLUTELY NO coupons this Sunday. So frustrating!!!

  • Nancy May 9, 2010

    ECB=Extra Care Bucks (instant type rebate from CVS), prints at the bottom of your receipt if you earned them from purchases made that are shown in their ad.

    MQ=manufacturers coupon.

    Hope that helps!

    rduyall, no the N&O did not have *any* coupon in the SS insert for Schick razors at all. The newspaper in New Bern had it, but not our local insert. Bummers huh?

    The Infusion hair care line of products is on sale at Rite Aid this week, 99 cents after $3 coupon in the insert today. Works for me :)

  • rduyall May 9, 2010

    Did the local paper have the $5 Schick coupon? Mine didn't.

  • Dreamchaser May 9, 2010

    Would someone please tell me what ECB and MQ stand for? Thank you in advance.

  • senglish27529 May 9, 2010

    Another good deal at Rite Aid this week -- Viactiv calcium chews are on sale for $5.99 (reg $8.99), and there was a $2 coupon in this morning's paper.

    :-)
