    I stopped into CVS this morning because I needed some Pantene mousse and figured I would do the Pantene deal with the buy 2, get $2 ECB. I had a bunch of high dollar coupons that Pantene sent me in the mail. When I went to the register, they had a basket sitting on the counter with a 50% off sign on it. In it were only 3 bottles of Pantene conditioner, which the cashier told me would be $2.56 each. I used (4) $2.00 off coupons and (1) $3.00 off coupon and got all four bottles of conditioner and one mousse for $4.56 and then got back $2 in ECBs...not too shabby, I thought!

  • shantankenz Jul 20, 2010

    I went to Walgreens this week and after using two BOGO Head and Shoulders coupons, I was able to get 4 for $7.00 (after the $1.00 Register Reward). I thought that was a great deal!

  • HappyGirl08 Jul 20, 2010

    Thanks Faye, I see a trip to staples in my future. I did stop by CVS this morning to take advantage of the coke 12 pack deal. I had 1.00 in green bag tag $ and 3.00 in ECBs so, that made it pretty sweet in deed! Also picked up a couple of greeting cards with a printable 1.00/2 coupon that I am pretty sure I found on their website somewhere.

  • Faye Prosser - Smart Shopper Jul 19, 2010

    happygirl8 - Staples will give you $2 in Staples Rewards for each used printer cartridge you turn in.

    wildfrenchrose - the coupons were in the Rite Aid sales ad from Sunday (7/18). If you don't get a paper, you can get it at the store. Those sales ads also have the transfer coupons in them.

  • wildfrenchrose Jul 19, 2010

    Faye, I cannot locate the Rite Aid prescription transfer coupons--can you help me out? I have one I need to refill very soon and want to take advantage of the coupon! Thanks!

  • HappyGirl08 Jul 19, 2010

    Who offers deals on used ink cartridges for you printer? I have several that I can turn in but I don't want to have them refilled so a coupon would be nice. Thanks!

  • t0tAlChA0s Jul 19, 2010

    I got a heads up on all those glue sticks as well. Found out that they just put all the supplies together. When someone needs something they just pull it out of the community supply stash. Also told me that I did not have to send all 12 jumbo glue sticks. They told me that glue sticks would be $.25 at Walmart in August.

  • t0tAlChA0s Jul 19, 2010

    The last time I scanned my card I noticed that all the coupons except one expired that day. I had a couple that give you a gift card with a new perscription. Finally, I had a perscription to get, all the coupons were expired. GGrrrrr =)

  • Faye Prosser - Smart Shopper Jul 19, 2010

    HI kcampbell - thanks for your post! The coupon kiosks have been in many stores for a while now, but it may be new to your store. I always swipe my card when I get to the store because sometimes there are some really good coupons. They are store coupons so you can couple them with manufacturer coupons for the same product to increase your savings! Welcome to th eCVS game and thanks again for sharing!

  • kcampbell113 Jul 18, 2010

    I noticed in CVS today a place to swipe my card and 2 coupons printed out that are good for a week. Don't know if this is new or I just never noticed it before. I am fairly new to the CVS game.
