This is part two of my series on how to do CVS deals. Previously I laid out the basics of CVS deals, namely the Extra Care Card, Extra Care Bucks (ECBs) , and the Cash Register Tape Coupons (CRTs). However, there are even more coupons out there to take your CVS shopping to the next level.
Internet Printable CVS Coupons – One of the incentives to registering CVS Extra Care Card with your email address on the CVS website is that CVS will periodically email you coupons to use in their stores. You simply print the coupons and bring them into the store. Unlike the CRTs, these coupons are not necessarily specific to your card, and there is an active community of CVS shoppers on Slickdeals that continuously post the coupons they receive for everyone to use. These are most often $X off $XX purchase (2/10, 3/15, 4/20, 5/30, and 10/50 are the normal ones), but there are also ones for amounts off specific category purchases and specific products.
Direct Mail Coupons – Occasionally CVS will send out coupons via postal mail, most often for free gift cards with a new or transferred prescription.
In-store booklet coupons – CVS puts out booklets on various health topics that often include CVS coupons. For instance, CVS recently released a booklet on managing and preventing Diabetes that had several pages of coupons inside. Most of these books are back around the pharmacy counter. There are also occasionally coupons in the weekly circular.
Remember that all of these CVS coupons can be combined with any manufacturer coupons you have. More on the art of combining coupons in part three.
