Been wondering how to best utilize your percent-off CVS coupon this week? First, let’s back up. If you haven’t done so already, link your CVS Extra Care card to your email account at CVS.com. Be sure to opt-in to their emails. Then begin receiving special coupons by email, including some handy percent-off coupons. These don’t come every week, but expect to get them every once in a while.
You’ll notice the wording on them states that sale items and promotional items are excluded. However, don’t be discouraged! Many times, even some of the Extra Bucks deals will still be based on regular prices. As you’re considering how to best utilize the percent-off coupon, remember that it will not work on a true sale price or on BOGO sales (this would be the “promotional” items the exclusion refers to).
Keeping all of that in mind (have I lost you yet?), I worked up a great deal this week that actually turns out to be a moneymaker with this handy coupon! You’ll notice that although there is an Extra Bucks reward promotion, the items themselves are priced at their regular price and will qualify for your percent-off coupon. Take a look:
Buy 1 Crest Pro-Health Rinse, 1L $6.89, regular price
Buy 1 Crest Pro-Health Rinse, 500 mL $5.49, regular price
Spend $10.00, Receive $5.00 Extra Bucks, through 8/25, Limit 2
Use one FREE Crest Rinse, 500 mL (up to $5.00) when you buy Crest Rinse, 946 mL or larger, limit of 4 like coupons in same shopping trip from PG 7/29 (exp 8/31)
And use 25% Off CVS Email Coupon, Excludes Sale, Clearance, and Promotional Items
Pay $4.28, Receive $5.00 Extra Bucks
Final Price: $0.72 Moneymaker, when you buy both
There is a limit of 2 on this promotion, so if you plan to do the deal twice, buy all items in one transaction in order to maximize your percent-off coupon!
