    I went to the new(er) Walgreens in Apex on HWY 55 and Jenks rd. and they had Sally Hansen complete salon manicure nail polish on sale for $1.89 each

  • labs Oct 22, 2012

    My personal experience is to make sure the extra bucks portion of the sale is written in the raincheck and or to save the original sale ad and attach it to the raincheck.

  • Packy Oct 22, 2012

    thanks for the info! Now, I just have to remember it. lol

  • mothar1 Oct 22, 2012

    Packy,
    You are limited on the extra care deals to however many it says is the limit in the ad normally.
    If you google "a full cup forum cvs", there is a wealth of information on there about the best deals, scenarios, etc. Some of the people on there are CVS geniuses, lol...For the St. Joseph's the limit is 1 per extra care card. You could still use your coupons and get more, but you'd only get the ecb one time. If your Dad has a CVS extra care card too, get one on his card :)

  • Packy Oct 22, 2012

    I do it sometimes... the deal a couple of weeks ago with the gillette style kit for .99 I got a raincheck on that one and Jif from yesterday. Often times I forget, honestly. BUT if they don't have the aspirin I WILL remember to get a RC. My dad takes it daily and this will save him quite a bit of money.

    Remind, me...to get the extracare bucks I need to do seperate transactions for the like items, right? I think I have a couple of the aspirin Qs.

  • Faye Prosser - Smart Shopper Oct 22, 2012

    Packy - I am sure you already do this but here's a reminder for those who don't - if they are out of anything at CVS today (or any of the drug stores), make sure you get a raincheck. Then, when the product is in stock next week, you can get the same deal. I do this a lot with drug stores because they are often out of the freebies and best deals. Hope you have a good shop - let us know how you did!

  • Packy Oct 22, 2012

    I'm going to CVS TODAY... I hardly ever get the best deals anymore...
