CVS is one of the greatest stores to coupon shop at. Between their CVS app coupons, ECBs, and redbox savings center, you can score some great deals. Here is step by step instructions on how to become a pro at couponing at CVS.
Step 1; Obtain a CVS Extra Care Card. This can be done at the register or online. I would advise obtaining it at the store. This is the card that you will use to obtain your CVS savings.
Step 2; Download your ExtraCare card into your app. Download your app before going to the store. You will then just scan in your CVS Extra Care Card.
Step 3; Check out the CVS weekly sales ad or check out the match ups at www.crazyforcouponing.com.
Look for deals giving you ECB rewards. ExtraCare buck rewards.
These will print out on the bottom of your receipt and will be able to use on your next transaction. The ad and in-store tags will tell you the limit of each ECB deal.
Now it is time to go shopping. When you are ready to go to plan making a list. Attach that list with your coupons and lets get ready.
When you get there. Scan your CVS ExtraCare card at the CVS Savings center, or also known as the CVS Redbox for any CVS Store coupons that are printing. You can combine CVS store coupons and manufacture coupons.
Get your list and start shopping. The best thing you can do to lower your OOP is to separate your transactions by the what is giving the highest ECB to the lowest and rolling your ECB. What is rolling ECB? When you use the ECB that just printed on your next deal. Remeber to be a good planner and check out the recent and upcoming deals HERE.
