    just curious if anyone else shops at cvs, and uses the extra care bucks the way I do, with coupons, and barely pay anything out of pocket?

    I do! I love getting extra value $ and just last week I was able to combine $7.50 bonus bucks with a $3/off over 15 and then a manufacturer coupon on top of that. I ended up saving about $14 and got another $3 off coupon when I checked out [​IMG]
    It's close to my house so it makes it very easy to go too.

    We don't have CVS here yet. It's taking over our small drug store chain, so it will be here soon. I'm sad to see Long's Drugs go, but I'm hoping CVS will be decent. [​IMG]

    but without using extra care bucks (ecbs as I call them) and coupons, they are expensive. but with the ecbs (which is like cvs monopoly money) they are super cheap. most of my transactions are under $1 and I get a ton of stuff. last week, with only using cvs coupons and manufacturer coupons, I was able to get 4 schick intuition razors (b1g1 free sale) 6 bottles of excedrin all for $3, and half of that was tax. believe me with the ecbs and sales and manufacturer coupons it is so worth it. they practically pay me to take this stuff home.

    this is where I learned how to get started with cvs-ing.

    I have a JC Penny credit card. I guess that CVS and JC Penny are related cause my JC Penny credit card works at CVS. I dont use it, I just pay the yearly charge to keep it alive. I forget about the extra care bucks.

    My very first job was at a CVS. I started Nov. 1, 1981. I even know what CVS stands for (Consumer Value Stores) and that their headquarters are (or were) in Woonsocket, RI! They were a newish store when I started working there so I used to think it was cool to see them in other places when I was on vacation. I'd actually take pictures of them.....
    I'm officially a CVS dork! But I had no idea they were connected to JCPenney. I don't think they were back then. There were several stores where I could use my employee discount and that wasn't one of them.
