So this is the 2nd time I haven't had a CVS ad in my paper...do you still get one? I know I can look at the ad online but to me it's faster/easier with the paper copy!!

There are LOTS of times I don't get mine... I thought it was just because someone was taking it out (we use a box to buy ours so we don't have to pay tax) for the cover coupons... maybe it's just that CVS doesn't always put them in the paper?!

Just wanted to let you know that I did get mine, and it--in fact--does have the $3 coupon. I think somebody ripped you off!

I got mine. Just wanted to let you know: there's a free umbrella stroller up for grabs when you buy $20 worth of baby products listed on one of the pages.

Hehe... Kim's giving up the boycott for the free stroller! I'm gonna get it too. It's really only $17 with the $3 off coupon plus any other coupons you have. I'll have to wait until I get the Huggies coupons this week from a trade. I saw the Enfamil on sale and soooo wanted to just buy that and be done with the entire $20. But I don't need formula. I haven't even used the whole first can yet. MUST-- NOT-- BUY --FORMULA! * ugh... that hurt...*

Less than that for me!

Here's what I'm getting:

two packs of diapers @ 9.00 = 18.00
one pack of wipes @ 2.50
free stroller
total: 20.50

coupons:
2x1.50 for diapers=3.00
1x.75 for wipes
1x3.00 off purchase
1x1.50 extra bucks
total: 8.25

GRAND TOTAL: 20.50+ tax = 21.93-8.25=13.68 (if only I could do math. I rounded the wrong way. lol)

That's how much the stroller would be all alone, so it's kind of like all the other stuff is FREE!


and yes, I'll give up my boycott for today.

I knew someone would tell me how to do that deal the best. Thanks Kim!

ETA: Oh yeah, I have quite a few $ in ECB waiting to be spent too.

Now that EB are printing right away...do you think they would care if I made 2 separate purchases...such as buy gum, kisses, and Tresemme (which I have coupons for all of them) get my 3 EB back for the gum and kisses and then make a 2nd purchase of my diapers and such for the stroller and then I'd use the 3EB from the 1st purchase too. I suppose I'll try it and see what they say?!?

That should be fine since the EB do print right away now. They wouldn't care if you made a purchase, left, then came back for the next purchase, so they shouldn't care if you just do it all at once. Unless they wanna be difficult, of course. Go for it!

I am so mad!!!! We don't have a CVS right here. They are building one, but it is not finished yet. Anyway, when I read the posts earlier about the sale, I decided to make a special trip in order to apply for my Extra Care card and get the free stoller. So, I went to a CVS in another town, not too far and they did not have the strollers!!!! The young guy said they would probably get them tomorrow. My DH said it is probably a rip off and they probably won't get them. Anyone else have this problem????

Also, what is the $3 coupon??? We did not have an ad in our paper, so I went online to look at it and did not see anything about it online or in the ad in the store. Is this a coupon you got printed out with your card???

It's not a scam. I got mine! They cost 12.99, but then it comes off at the end.

It was on the cover of the ads in the paper; it's not in the ads that are in the store, and it doesn't print out there...

I actually ended up getting mine a little differently...

I got one pack of diapers (used a 1.50 coupon), two packs of nutripals (each with a 1.50 coupon), two packs of wipes (one .75 coupon, and one 1.00 coupon), and the stroller. My total was only 11. 92 after my 3.00 coupon and my 1.50 EB. woot!

OHHHH!

And the total savings was:


dun dun dun












29.89

I love love love love saving more than I spend!

3 more weeks until I move close enough to a CVS to make it worth it. 3 more weeks ... you all are killing me.

I got the last stroller at our CVS. It wasn't as cute as the one in the ad, but hey, what are you going to do.

I got 2 packs of Pull-ups and a pack of sippy cups.
2 x $9 = $18 + $4.99 = $22.99

Coupons:
$2 off Pull-ups
$2 off Pull-ups
$3 coupon from ad
$7 in ECB

With tax it was $10.15!

I'm going to CVS tomorrow. I'll get:

4 packs Huggies pullups, using $8 in coupons
4 packs Cottonelle wipes, using $2 in coupons
1 pack gum (free when I use my coupon)
Shout spray (w/coupon)
Listerine

I also have $39.47 in Extra Care Bucks.

So, after tax, I expect to only pay 3.77 AND I'll get a free stroller if they have any left. YEAH!!
