    I am once again super excited and CVS is my new favorite store. I went in tonight just browsing and hope to catch a deal or two. First the girl was awesome at the CVS in Smithfield. I bought a few things and had to pay 10.00 and some change and earned the ECBs...turned around bought some more and only paid 1.14..BUT my daughter had 2 8x10 collages made and 6 4x6's.. her total was 10.00 and some change..I had 4.99 in ECB's...SO still not really sure I was doing it right or not...I grabbed up 2 of the Betty Crocker snacks and 2 boxes of Mac and Cheese..with a .50 Q off 2 snacks..so I let my daughter have the ECB's for her pics (they were 10.65 initially)..total for all that was 5.93...amazing how you actually add stuff to the list and it gets cheaper...she was ecstatic and so was I!! Walgreens trip was not to bad either...

    ECB's are great, but do not undermine their value and use them to pay the tax of your total as you will lose every time. The Clerk can tell you how much is tax and what is purchase cost so you can determine if the amount beyond the tax is worth you using ECB on. I'd rather pay the extra than to lose money. E

    There was one Smartsource insert in the N&O today. It had some good coupons so make sure you call and have the insert delivered tomorrow.

  • bsjcna1 Nov 18, 5:26 p.m.

    Were there any coupons in the news and observer today (sunday). I did not receive any and we have home delivery. If there were plese tell me how many and what kind so I can call and tell them tosend me my coupons.

  • Faye Prosser - Smart Shopper Nov 18, 3:31 p.m.

    Diane - do what pss3 suggested. You use the ECB's you earn each week to pay for the next week's. To get started, you will need to spend a little out of pocket, unless you have a prescription transfer gift card, a gift card from redeeming Swagbucks or a gift card from cashing in your credit card rewards (if you use a credit card and it offers CVS cards as rewards - and you pay it off every month so you are not incurring finance charges, of course). With the combination of manufacturer coupons and rolling ECB's from the week before coupled with any gift cards I have, I actually paid ZERO at the register. It was all free.And, now I have another $18 in ECB's to spend at Black Friday. And the ECB's I earn on Black Friday will pay for the purchases I make the next week. It's a wonderful cycle of using ECB's to pay for your purchases week after week. I knew CVS would have a good sale near Black Friday, as they have for years, so I have banked my ECB's waiting for it. Today it really paid off!

  • pss3 Nov 18, 2:48 p.m.

    Diane, you are correct these items are not fully free. I suggest you buy $10 worth of items and use the ECB's to buy another batch of items with ECB's. The idea is to keep rolling the ECB'S and you will dramatically lower the amount of cash you spend. My actual cash out of pocket is always under $5 unless I'm buying diapers (and most of it is tax...can't escape that)!

  • DianeNC Nov 18, 2:33 p.m.

    Hope y'all don't mind another basic question/comment from me about these CVS ECB deals. This may be obvious, but technically, even with the "Free after reward" items, since we have to spend our own money out of pocket for these items, and are getting CVS's Extrabucks in return (as opposed to cash), we're really not getting these items for free, correct? It's more like we're getting a "store credit" for the value of the item instead. (Not that this is a bad thing, of course, but for folk like myself who are low on cash, it's not like we're actually getting any of these items - even the "money makers" for free, correct?)

    Thanks!

    I just realized that I received a $3 ECB when I bought 4 99cent American Greetings Cards. I know the language in the signage said something about 3 cards of 1.99 or greater value, but I wanted the cards anyway so was buying them without expecting the ECBs.

  • claytonsaver Nov 18, 2:10 p.m.

    readingtou,
    You can use any number of ECBs to purchase a single item. You cannot exceed the subtotal, so tax cannot be paid by ECBs as best I I can figure out. CVS is not like Walgreens which has a rule that number of coupons/RRs used cannot exceed the number of items you have.
    To Faye,
    Thanks so much for your list. I like that you separated food from nonfood. I got every freebie that interested me except for Hot Wheels car, Command Hooks and Cepacol. Several items were up at the register area in Clayton on Hwy 70, so I would suggest that everyone look there first. Staff also was able to tell me they had not been able to locate the Command (did I ask about the Cepacol? I forget!). And I just saw yesterday that there are sheets of coupons (some CVS and some manufacturer's) on the rack with the Reinventing Beauty magazine that did not require mag purchase. Best one for this add is $2 off 2 Hershey's Bliss. See ECB deal in Faye's list above. Not sure if everyone knew about those q's.

    How many ebc can you use per item at cvs?
