CVS deals 4/17

Posted April 17, 2011

This week at CVS there is a 3 day sale with free Easter grass and a free egg decorating kit. Don’t miss the free Green Bag Tag after ECB, as well. Read on for all the details about this super little tag. There are also great deals on toothbrushes, floss and toothpaste!

You will also notice that I am going to start including the name of the insert where the coupon was found including RP for RedPlum, SS for SmartSource and PG for Proctor & Gamble inserts. Hopefully, this will help you find the coupons a little faster if you have not already cut and filed them.

Three Day Sale: Sunday, Monday and Tuesday only

Easter grass $.99 - .99 ECB = FREE after ECB! limit 1

Paas Classic Easter egg decorating kit $1.99 - $1.99 ECB = FREE after ECB! limit 1

Regular Weekly Sale

CVS/pharmacy Green Bag Tag $.99 - .99 ECB = FREE after ECB! Limit 2. If you are not familiar with the Green Bag Tag, this is how it works: Buy the Green Bag Tag and keep it with your CVS card. Bring your own bag for your purchases or do not use a bag at all each time you shop at CVS. Have the cashier scan your Green Bag tag during each transaction. You will get a $1 ECB after every 4th scan of the Green Bag Tag card! I have been using mine for a long time and have received a bunch of $1 ECB’s just because I bring in my own bag.

    jhumphrey4..Look on the back of your cvs paper. There's several products that are $5/5 and the reach toothbrushes are included. There's no picture (don't think there is) but it's in the writing under the picture. Hope this helps!!

    First I would like to thank you for your blog! I would never have time to go through and find all of the deals. Your lists make it so easy!

    Out of curiosity, where did you see the Reach Toothbrushes on sale for $1.00? I've looked through the flyer three times and didn't see it at the store (40/42). In fact, they hardly had any Reach toothbrushes. The only toothbrushes I saw for sale were OralB.

    I was very conservative at CVS today, didn't get all the deals I could have - cutting back some LOL

    Bought $41.44 in goods (sales tax included), saved $7.18 in store sale discounts, saved $32.00 in manufacturers Q's and ECB's redeemed, paid...........$2.26 and came out with $9.30 in ECB's for next week :)
