CVS allows you to use CVS store coupons with manufacturer coupons to maximize your savings. However, they rarely release coupons. If you’re looking for CVS store coupons, here is where I have found them.
CVS Printable Coupons
Most of the coupons on CVS’s website are manufacturer coupons, but you’ll sometimes find a CVS-brand coupon within the mix that is a CVS store coupon. Look under “Browse Category” for “CVS” to find CVS stores coupons. The other coupons on the CVS website are from Coupons.com, so sometimes, with you print a coupon, you’ll notice that the coupon may no longer be available to print on Coupons.com.
If you don’t see CVS listed, this means there are no CVS coupons available at this time.
CVS eNewsletter & Home Mailers
Register your ExtraCare Card on CVS online and opt in to their CVS enewsletter to get coupons for money off your total purchase, FREE products, and other coupons by email and mail.
Just because you have an ExtraCare Card does not mean it has been registered. You must do this yourself!
Reinventing Beauty Magazine
The Reinventing Beauty Magazine is a CVS magazine that can be found only at CVS for the low price of $0.99. Inside the magazine is a coupon pull-out, also known as the CVS Pharmacy Store Coupon Booklet. Some stores offer the pull-out coupon booklet absolutely free.However not all stores offer this, so you may have to pay the $0.99 for the magazine if you want the coupons inside.
Both of these items are typically referred to as “The Beauty Book” by CVS bloggers, since they contain essentially the same coupons. The Reinventing Beauty Magazine does have additional coupons inside that aren’t included in the pull-out though.
CVS ExtraCare Bucks
CVS often has ExtraCare Buck Deals. When you purchase the required item(s) or spend the minimum amount, you’ll be rewarded with ExtraCare Bucks, which are like money that can only be spent at CVS. ExtraCare Bucks must be used in one transaction and do expire, so make sure to note the expiration date.
The trick to CVS is to “roll” your ExtraCare Bucks to lower the amount you spend out of pocket. For example, one week, Garnier hair care products are on sale 2 for $5 and you get $2 ExtraCare Bucks when you purchase two. With coupons, your transaction may look like this:
(1) Garnier Fructis Shampoo $2.50
(1) Garnier Fructis Conditioner $2.50
You use a (2) $1/1 Garnier Hair Care coupons.
You pay $3 and get back $2 in ExtraCare Bucks
The following week, Gillette Fusion Razors are on sale for $7.99 and you get $5 ExtraCare Buck with purchase. With coupons, your transaction may look like this:
(1) Gillette Fusion Razor $7.99
You use (1) $5/1 Gillette Fusion Razor coupon.
You use your $2 ExtraCare Bucks from the previous week.
You pay $0.99 and get back $5 ExtraCare Bucks to use on your next purchase.
Keep in mind, there are often limits on how often you can take advantage of an ExtraCare Bucks deal each week.
The goal is to generate ExtraCare Bucks to use on your next transaction to lower your out of pocket costs and help you save money. Make sure you read Getting Paid to Shop to understand rolling rewards to save at CVS and other pharmacies.
Other Ways to Save
