    Missed Redbox coupons because machines have not been working.

    There is an awesome deal on the Clear Men’s Shampoo and Degree Deodorant. The Degree is part of the Dove buy 15.00 get 5.00. There was a coupon in last week’s redplum, buy one degree men’s deodorant, get one Clear Men Shampoo free, up to 6.99 I think. I bought 3 degrees and 3 Clear Shampoo, 15.00 and 1 Dove Body Wash, 15.50, I used 3 degree coupon, 3.00, plus 1 dove body wash coupon, 2.00. 3 clear shampoo, 20.97. The total was 30.50 before tax, the deductions were 3.00, 2.00 and 6.99*3 (20.97), my local CVS gives the max for the coupons. . I paid 4.53 and got a 5.00 ECB. I purchased other items because I have been getting $10.00 off 50.00 almost every day this week. This transaction was a moneymaker for me, I just don’t have time to list all the items.
    The Degree/Clear Deal is a good one, you are basically making .47 cents and getting the 3 free shampoo, 1 free body wash and 3 free deodorant. This is an awesome week at CVS. I basically have all the available coupon memorized so I love to browse the aisles and find deals that aren’t obvious or listed in the circulars.

    If u use the coupon for the Lipton tea you won’t get the 5$! it will tell u in your account that u spent only $9!

    • For the Mommas


      Really odd because it is showing for some as being the full amount.

  • Florence

    The Lipton deal is also available at my Rite Aid, with a $2.00 UPR so I did that there instead, :)

  • Sarah

    I am looking at the CVS weekly ad, I do not see the $3 extra bucks reward for the Hershey’s. Is that deal only with certain regions?

  • Maria

    My Hershey coupon was 1/2 of the Hershey 6 packs.

    • For the Mommas


      I believe the photo shows 6 packs.

      • Maria

        I guess I’m confused – isn’t the 6 pack the large bars? The ones on sale for a $1 at my store were the 10 pack snack sizes. I opted for the bags (which are almost gone) lol

        • For the Mommas

          I doubled checked with her, she said that there are 6 in the pack she purchased Maria. I can’t say for certain as this isn’t my scenario.. She is located in VA.

    • Kim F

      Yes, my coupon also says $1/2 chocolate bar 6-packs. The coupon also says LIMIT ONE PER PURCHASE. Amanda must not have had the manager at the register!

      • For the Mommas

        One per purchase does not mean one per transaction. One per purchase means ONE item Purchased per coupons.

  • Ana

    hey does anyone know where i can get a few of the pepsi moments insert? I never got mine in last sundays paper :-(
