15 Days of Pinching Pennies at the Drug Stores (Day 3): What Is A CVS “ECB”

drugstore1

So we got through the very beginning basics of How to Save at CVS last night (are you still with me?) so tonight it’s time to start confusing you. ;) Really though, once you figure out how to “roll” your ECBs at CVS you’ll be well on your way to saving big, so let’s get started!

 

What Is A CVS “ECB”?

1. What is an ECB?

At CVS, each week in their weekly ad you’ll see items that are “Extra Care Buck” (ECB) deals.  As I mentioned last night, the very best savings at CVS come from their ECB deals. When you shop and purchase ECB deals you’ll receive a printout at the bottom of your receipt for a certain number of ECBs towards your next purchase.

2. ECBs are like real cash at CVS.

Extra Care Bucks are just like real cash to be used on a following trip at CVS (in fact, I keep my ECBs in my wallet next to my cash so I don’t forget them!) They typically expire in 30 days, so be sure to use them before their expiration date.

3.  You can “roll” your Extra Care Bucks.

To get the most bang for your CVS buck, you’ll want to “roll” ECBs from your first trip at CVS towards your next trip, and then continue to use those to pay every time you go to the store. You can even “roll” those ECBs on the same day or in the same week to keep your initial out-of-pocket costs low!

 4.  You can separate ECB deals into separate transactions.

If there’s an ECB offer that requires you to spend XX dollars to get XX ECBS, you can separate that amount over several transactions.

 

For example: If you need to spend $30 to earn $5 in Extra Care Bucks on Proctor & Gable products, you can spend $15 of that in one transaction and $15 in a separate transaction to earn the ECBs, as long as you purchase them within the given week that they are offered. 

 

 5. Use your highest value ECB first when checking out.

When checking out at CVS, you’ll want to use your highest value ECB first towards your purchase, so that you can save smaller ECBs for smaller purchases.  Be sure to use ECBs that are less than the amount of your total purchase so that you don’t lose any of the value of your ECBs. (Since you can’t split up ECBs into more than one transaction, any amount that you have on your ECB over the amount of your purchase would be adjusted down, and you would lose that extra value.

 

6. Easily check out at CVS.

If you have your coupons ordered a certain way, you will save the most when shopping at CVS. Here’s the order that I use when shopping CVS:

1. Give your cashier any CVS store coupons for money off your total purchase (for example an email coupon from CVS for $3 off your $10 purchase.)
2. Next, give your chasier any CVS store coupons for a specific item you’re purchasing.
3. Then use any manufacturer coupons.
4. Finally, use ECBs that you’ve received from a previous shopping trip to lower your out-of-pocket expense even further.

15 Days of Pinching Pennies at the Drug Stores (Day 2): How To Save At CVS

drugstore1

How to Save at CVS

Since CVS is by far the easiest drug store to shop with coupons (at least in my opinion?) I figured we’d start off this week working on how to shop CVS using coupons. Now, we’re going to start with very basic information here (so you seasoned CVS’ers may find all this old news), but I want to make it as simple to follow as possible for folks who’ve never used a coupon in their lives.

 

(Hopefully we’ll all learn a thing or two, and if you see anything that I  miss please add that information to the comments section so I can get it added!)  Here goes. . .

The Basics of CVS Shopping

1.  Request a CVS Extra Care Card.

You can get a CVS card at your local store or sign up for one on the CVS website.

2.  Also register your CVS card online.

CVS emails out coupons fairly regularly, so you’ll want to register your card HERE to make sure you don’t miss any deals.   Just for signing up for a card you may receive a coupon for a few dollars off your purchase. Definitely take a few minutes to sign up to get some extra savings!

3.  Use your Extra Care Card every time you shop.

Using your Extra Care Card every time you shop will  help make sure that CVS sends you tarted coupons, and you won’t miss out on any extra savings.  If you forget your card at home you may use the phone number tied to your account when checking out so that you don’t lose any savings.

 Note that you should have only one CVS card per household. There is some debate on this one, however I feel like it’s not worth sacrificing my integrity for a deal – and I promise there are plenty of deals even with just one card!

 

4. Scan  your CVS card at the red coupon machine.

As soon as you walk in the door at CVS, you’ll notice a red machine where you can scan your card to receive extra coupons. You’ll also get targeted savings, as well as a coupon for a free item occasionally! CVS uses these coupons to motivate you to shop, and since these they’re store coupons, you can “stack” them with additional manufacturer coupons to save even more. (We’ll talk more about stacking coupons at CVS shortly.)

5. CVS offers two kinds of sales each week.

When shopping CVS, watch for traditional store sales updated each Sunday, as well as “Extra Care Buck” (ECB) offers. Typically your very best buys of the the week at CVS will be the ECB deals, but always scan through the weekly ad to see what items get you the most for your money! CVS sometimes offers Buy One Get One offers (often on toiletries or detergents), and those savings can be as much or more than the regular ECB savings.

 

Also watch for clearance items throughout the store, as clearance items in addition to Extra Care discounts will be the best you’ll find in the store!

 

Always (always!) be nice to your cashier. It’s completely worth it, and will make you feel good too!

Tide Laundry Detergent Just $1.86 At CVS + Free Mucinex

tide

UPDATE: From what I’ve read, I *think* you will be able to get the gift card even after spending less than $30 after coupons on the first scenario. HOWEVER, if you’re concerned, just don’t use one of the $2/2 Tide coupons or $75/1 coupons and you shoudl be fine. Hope that helps!

 

Here’s how I scored everything in the picture above at CVS today for just $9.64 at CVS, after coupons, gift cards, Extra Care Bucks and rebates. (Whew!)

Transaction #1

Buy (6) Tide Laundry Detergents, 19-32 loads, $5.94

 

Transaction #2

Buy 1 Mucinex Allergy $7.50

  • Used $2/1 Mucinex coupon from the 9/7 SS insert
  • Used $10 gift card from Transaction $1
  • Paid nothing out of pocket, got $5.50 in ECBs, still have $4.50 on my CVS card AND $10 mail in rebate to submit from Transaction #1
