When I was in CVS yesterday (burning all my extra care bucks!), I asked the store manager if the January extra care booklet was out yet. It was, but the prices aren’t valid yet (gotta wait until Jan. 1).
He gave me a booklet, and I’m going to list a few of the better-looking monthly deals:
–CVS toothbrush with tongue cleaner — pay $2.99, get $2.99 in ECB back. Limit 2.
I don’t know how long this sale is going on (either three days, or all week? anyone know?) but CVS-brand products are buy one, get the second half off. So, perhaps you could buy two toothbrushes, spend about $4.49 out of pocket, and get $5.98 in ECB back. Let me know if this works, anyone!
-Assorted Reach toothbrushes will earn $1 ECB, limit 2.
–Dial complete foaming hand soap 3-pack $6.99, get $2 ECB (I tried to find some online printable coupon for these, but had no luck). I like the foaming soaps because when they run low, you can add water to them and really extend the life of them. At about $2.33 each, it’s not bad, but not a good deal if you don’t need soap. Limit 5 (though who in the world needs 15 foaming soaps?)
–Johnson’s “softlotion” with “softwash” (so, 11-14 oz of lotion, 12 oz. of softwash. It looks like a bundled package) $5.97, get $2 ECB. $1 off printable coupon here. Limit 5.
If you need toothbrushes, lotion and bodywash, you could get the two CVS toothbrushes (for either $5.99 or $4.48 total, not sure); and the Johnson’s softlotion for $4.97 with your printable coupon.
That puts your total at $10.95 or $9.45, depending on how the toothbrush deal will go.
If the toothbrushes make your total $9.45, you’ll need an extra .55 purchase so you can use $2 off $10 purchase coupon. Grab a candy bar or something.
Out of pocket, you’ll spend about $8. You’ll get $7.98 in extra care bucks back, good on your next purchase. Don’t forget to give the cashier your extra care card before or during the transaction! You won’t get these deals without it.
Remember, it’s only a good deal if you actually need these products!
