    In years past, after the holidays are over, many of the toys that CVS gets in to boost holiday revenue go on clearance, and as you know, some clearance prices are not marked on the shelves so always scan the items you're interested in when they clearance the holiday goods (candies, decorations etc) as I have always found that much of the toy selection is also clearance priced!

    Those Zhu Zhu pets could be clearanced as well with holiday items after Christmas :) For years a friend and I did major CVS runs to buy clearanced toys to set up the year for birthday presents, our kids party goodie bags etc. Many times they got to 75% off rather quickly - something to think about.

  • Trickat Dec 6, 2010

    Lax...it's not stacking two mq's since the mq and monthly only apply to the first 2 bags. You're still purchasing two, just at a discounted price.

  • LAXMom12 Dec 6, 2010

    Interesting jzk....I didn't know that you could stack two MQ since the B2G1 was also from the coupon inserts.

  • Trickat Dec 6, 2010

    LAX, it's 3 bags if you stack the monthly with the mq, I was thinking 4 bags at first with 2 mqs and 2 monthlys, but it didn't work out either.

    3 x 2.50=$$7.50
    -$1 December monthly
    -$1 MQ on 2
    -$2.50 B2G1
    $3 for 3 bags

    I hope this helps.

  • LAXMom12 Dec 6, 2010

    Faye -- Could you break this one down for me? How many bags are involved here with the coupons? My math isn't working so good. :) It looks like it is a total of 5 bags at $8, but that
    doesn't match the $1 a bag so I am missing something.

    Hershey’s holiday candy 7.8 – 8.5 oz
    Sale: $2.50
    Store coupon: $1/2 coupon from December monthly coupon book
    MQ: $1/2 coupon from 11/14 AND Buy 2, Get 1 Free coupon from 12/5 (hopefully we get this one!)
    Total after store coupon, $1/2 MQ and B2G1 free coupon = $1 each

  • Trickat Dec 6, 2010

    For CVS - To get the Planters $5 up reward, for example, do they total the original price of the nuts or do you have to buy $15 post sale price nuts?

    i.e. If Planters are regularly priced 5.00 each, but are on sale for 2.50 - can I just buy 3 and still get the reward?

  • Trickat Dec 6, 2010

    Our Zhu Zhu deal worked, but the cashier had to push it through since the coupon doesn't automatically take the third one off. No manager approval needed.

  • triplettk Dec 5, 2010

    Update...tried to help a friend do the zhu zhu deal at CVS on Alexander Dr. and cashier/manager wouldn't do it. Said she had to buy 2 to get 3 free. : (

  • Nancy Dec 5, 2010

    Had a GREAT time at CVS today - card scanned and I got $30 off either the 3.5 or 7" Craig TV and the 7" was on sale and it comes with built in DVD player to boot :) Couldn't resist as I also had a $5/$30 and lots of ECB's.

    now, will I use it by my computer or will I give it as a gift? I don't know!!! I don't know of anyone who needs one but it was too good a deal to pass up. The 7" one was on sale for $99 and with the $30 off coupon from the card scanner and all those ECB's which of course I rolled some for other deals with ECB's too - well, I had fun :)

    Oh! That 30% deal for the 4th & 5th? Online only ~unless~ an employee provided you with one of their Friends and Family discount cards which are tied to their employee number. While shopping at my local CVS the cashier came through the store to find me and hand one to me!!!! I gave her the biggest hug! I was so excited!

  • triplettk Dec 5, 2010

    I did it too at CVS on Leesville/Strickland. They only had boy ones this morning. Had to get mgr. approval.
