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!
Did anyone else get an email like this from CVS today? This is good timing for the Spend $25 and get $10 Extra Bucks deal on Charmin!!! If you haven’t registered your CVS Extracare card online yet, Go to CVS.com now and register! You need to have your extracare card # with you. It is worth it because CVS emails coupons like this fairly often! While you are on CVS.com, they allow you to look at next week’s ad early!

Just wanted to let everyone know that is interested…You can use the $3 off Oral B battery operated toothbrush coupon on the Disney Character toothbrushes!
My CVS did not have the Cross Action (which could be a money maker if you have the $3 off and the BOGO coupon from last month -exp. Monday), however I would prefer getting these because my girls will like them better!
For this transaction what I did was-
#1 Buy the COntact Solution
#2 Buy 2 Toothpastes
#3 Buy 2 Toothbrushes
*For each transaction I used the Extra Bucks from the previous transaction. This is called ‘rolling’ your Extra Bucks. It is totally allowed, and the cashiers do not have a problem with it at all.
I had some previous Extra Bucks, so outof pocket(mostly because of tax!) I paid $1.35!
I really wanted to get the Reeses and Hershey candy for $.50 a bag, but they were out. If anyone sees them at their CVS, could you let me know???
