CVS

CVS has a great program called Extra Care Bucks (ECB).  With ECB, you can enjoy big savings.  The first thing you will want to do is to sign up for a CVS extracare Card.  You can do this at any store location.

EXTRA CARE BUCKS (ECB)

ECB Weekly Rewards

An Extra Care Buck is a coupon that will print at the bottom of your cash register receipt.  These can be used to buy other products in the store.  You can think of these as “CVS Dollars”.

Have the cashier scan your CVS extracare Card in order for your ECB to print at the bottom of your receipt.

ECB do have expiration dates, so be sure to use before it expires.  It will not be valid after the expiration date.

You will earn ECB by purchasing specific items featured in the weekly ad.  Most have a limit of 1 per customer.

ECB Quarterly Rewards

Extra Care Bucks are also earned just by making regular purchases.  You will earn back 2% on non-prescription purchases and $1 ECB for every two prescriptions purchased.  You will need to scan your card each time you shop, for these earning to be tracked.

Payouts are made on the following dates 1/1, 4/1, 7/1 and 10/1.  You can receive your quarterly ECB in-store or on-line (if you have provided a valid email address).

You can always check the current status of your rewards and coupons at CVS.com.

OTHER WAYS TO SAVE AT CVS

ExtraCare Coupon Center Kiosks are located within each store.  Make sure to scan your CVS extracare Card each time you stop at CVS.  You will receive ECB, Coupons and Special Offers.  Make this your first stop when you arrive.

You can purchase a GreenBagTag for only 99¢.  With your GreenBagTag you will earn a $1 ECB for every four visits in which you used a reusable bag or declined a plastic bag.  Make sure to scan your GreenTagBag to earn your ECB.

CVS also offers an ExtraCare Beauty Club.  Once you sign up for the ExtraCare Beauty Club, you will earn $5 ECB for every $50 spent on qualifying beauty purchases.

You may want to print a copy of the CVS Coupon Policy and carry in your coupon binder.

WALGREENS (WAGS)

The best way to maximize your dollar at Wags is to optimize their Register Reward (RR) Program.  It takes a little bit of practice to get it down, but once you do, you will save big.  If you are just starting out with coupons, we recommend saving Wags for one of the last stores to learn.  Their program is a little more complex than other stores.

REGISTER REWARDS PROGRAM (RR)

A Register Reward (RR) is a catlina that will print at the register when a specific product is purchased.  It can be used to purchase other product in the store.  Think of it as “Walgreens Dollars”.

Most RR will expire two weeks from the date of print.  However, this is not always the case.  Be sure to pay attention to the expiration date.  They are not valid after that.

Most of these will be week long offers and are featured in the weekly store ad.  Others will be month long offers and are often unadvertised.

DO NOT buy multiples of the same RR item within a transaction.  For example, Bayer Advanced Aspirin 20-24 ct $3, Earn $1 RR.  If you would purchase more than one Bayer Advanced in the same transaction, you will only receive ONE $1 RR.  If you purchase them in two separate transactions, you will receive ONE $1 RR for each transaction.

DO NOT use the same RR on an identical item.   If you would use a “like” RR  to pay for the same product, the register recognizes this and will not issue you another RR.  For example, although you can use the previously earned $1 RR from Bayer Advanced towards the purchase of another Bayer Advanced – it will void the issuing of the new RR.

You CAN buy different RR items in the same transaction and receive multiple RR.  If there is a RR for Bayer Advanced and another for Colgate Toothpaste, you can purchase both items in the same transaction and earn the corresponding RR.  Just make sure the items you are purchasing are not part of the same RR offer.

You MAY need “FILLER ITEMS” to offset the number of coupons & RR in a single transaction and/or to bump your total purchase amount before tax.

You MUST purchase at least the same number of items as coupons and RR being used.  We call this the “coupon to item ratio”.  If you were purchasing two items and have a coupon for each and a RR, your coupon to item ratio would be off.  Since you have TWO items and THREE “coupons” (two manufacturers and one RR) you will need a FILLER ITEM to balance out the ratio.  We suggest finding the cheapest item in the store to keep down your Out Of Pocket (OOP).  Walgreens coupons do not count when calculating the number of coupons.

Purchase MUST exceed the value of your RR less tax.  Again this is were you can use a FILLER ITEM to offset the value of your coupons.  Just make sure you are purchasing an item that will exceed the sales tax.

ALWAYS check out at cosmetics counter (if your store has one) if you are planning multiple transactions in one shopping trip.

Wags also has a mail-in rebate (MIR) offer program.  Often in place of a RR, they will attach a mail-in rebate promotion.  These are typically a limit of 1.  They will be listed in the weekly ad.  After you purchase the qualifying item(s), the register will produce the mail-in rebate form for you.  The submission dates are very short, so do not delay in sending your rebate.

A Walgreens coupon can be stacked with a manufacturer coupon.  One of each per item.  There are many sources for Walgreens coupons:  weekly in-ad coupons, monthly coupon booklets (located at the front of the store with the weekly circular) and bonus coupon booklets.  An example of a bonus coupon booklet would be the Walgreens Infant Care Coupon Booklet (valid through 12/31/11).  These coupon booklets are often located at the pharmacy and/or the cosmetics counter.

Walgreens Coupons Policy.  Often coupon redemption at Walgreens is YMMV (Your Manager May Vary).
