I found a way to save money at CVS using your Extra Bucks, and hopefully I can explain it correctly.
When you do your coupon transaction, you may do this-
Get your total, hand them your coupons, and then use your Extra Bucks to pay the difference, and then you have to pay CASH for the tax.
If you do your transaction in this order-which requires a little more thinking-
Get your total-
Hand them your EXTRA BUCKS FIRST then hand them your coupons. Then the Extra Bucks will take the tax off your total, and the coupons will be taken off after. Today my total should have had $3 or more in tax, but I gave my $18.99 Extra Bucks from last week, and my birthday Extra Bucks, and I only had to pay $.19.
I am not sure yet if it works like this at Rite Aid, but I will try this and let you know later this week-or let me know if you know. It has been kind of lame to go to Rite Aid because they are always out of stuff by the time I can go, so I have been avoiding them lately!
CVS limits their Extra Bucks Deals, the good thing about that is they are in stock when you get there! The only thing they were out of that I wanted to get was the Clean and Clear Body Wash, and I got a raincheck for that.
This is a picture of what I bought (minus 1 bag of M&Ms for my 3 yr old shopping helper!)
The total before coupons was $33.04
4-$1 off Pledge Printable Coupons
2-$1.50 off Colgate Max Fresh 3/27 SS (if it came to your door and you got all 3 inserts)
3-$.50 off Stove Top Stuffing Printable
1-Buy 2 M&Ms and Get One Free from 3/13 RP
1-$.25 off 2 M&Ms from CVS coupon machine
1-$.55 off Skintimate Shave Gel 3/28 SS(I didn’t get to use mine because the coupon is for the CAN and I didn’t want to go through the hassle of switching)
Total After Coupons $22.75
I had Extra Bucks from last weeks medicine, so I used them
and I got $17.49 in Extra Bucks
You can do the same but do multiple transactions!
I did not have a coupon for the Physicians Formula, but the concealer was $6.29 and I got a $7 Extra Bucks!

**Since this is a regular sale item without any Register Rewards, you can get a raincheck if they are out. The expiration date on the coupon is 4/27!
**This is on sale for $2.99 at Rite Aid this week as well, and they had LOTS in stock!
Raley’s has Colgate Pro Clinical Toothpaste for $2.29! Here is a link for $2.00 off Colgate Pro Clinical Toothpaste Printable Coupon, that makes them $.29 each!! The Regular price is $4.49! This is not a sale price, so if you want to wait until Friday to possibly get the FREE item, you can, as long as they don’t run out.
**They will also be Buy One Get One FREE at CVS next week.
I also saw a display by the frozen foods for Trident Vitality Gum. It had a tearpad of coupons for Buy One Get One Free Vitality Gum-if you see it, grab some and get the gum at Safeway or Rite Aid for FREE!
