Coming soon! Tutorials and link to learn how to play the CVS/Rite Aid/Walgreens game! CVS is where it all started for me. I learned the hard way and self-taught myself how to play their EXTRA CARE Program game. In the future I will post a tutorial on how to make the most of your drug store dollars but for now here's a deal just waiting to happen. Be sure to go over to iheartcvs and subscribe to her emails! Also, be sure to check out her iheartriteaid site that you can get to from her cvs site. This site does a lot of the work for you with scenarios and everything at hand! Boy I wish I knew about it back when I first started.
Be on the lookout for the BOGO coupon for Trident Gum that's going to be BOGO starting on next weeks sale(7/20/08). To make the deal even sweeter, for every 2 packs of Trident you buy you will get $1 in ECB's(July Monthly Deal). They are paying you $1 for every two packs of Trident you buy up to 5 sets (10 packs total).
At CVS YOU HAVE TO BUY 2 OF THE ITEM LISTED IN ORDER TO GET THE OTHER FREE. Most grocery stores allow you to buy just one on a BOGO promotion and that item rings up for half of the price. At CVS and Rite AID this does not happen. If you combine a BOGO manufacturer's coupon with a BOGO sale at the drug stores the item is indeed free. WHY? Because the price of the item that rings up is full price. When the coupon is scanned the computer asks the cashier to input the price of that item,making it free.
EX. If Twizzler's are on sale for $1 per pack and their is a BOGO sale going on, you can get both packs for a $1. If you have a coupon that says buy one twizzler and get the other free then the cashier will take off the $1 for that coupon and the $1 that you spent suddenly disappears.
Please note: At CVS if you purchase just the BOGO Items with the BOGO coupons you will not be charged any tax. Most of the time if you have a free item coupon you still end up paying taxes on that item, NOT the case at drugstores. Your balance will be ZERO! WOO HOO!
