For those who have a card scanner at your CVS stores, you’ll want to be sure and scan your card when you go to CVS. Most of the card scanners are currently printing the following coupons every time you scan your card: $3/$10 CVS brand coupon, $1/3 CVS brand toothbrushes, and $1/2 bags of Gold Emblem candy.
Gold Emblem candy is on sale for $0.88 this week. Use the the $1/2 coupon to get them for $0.33/bag. This would be a great filler to use for some of your deals this week and I was already planning on snagging some.
It gets even better, though. This candy is part of the Buy $10, Get $5 ECBs deal this week. So, if you were doing multiple transactions at CVS, you could use these bags as fillers, only pay $0.33/bag, and–after buying 12 bags–you’ll get $5 ECBs back!
Plus, since Gold Emblem is a CVS brand item, you can also work these candies into other transactions with CVS brand items and use a $3/$10 coupon. For instance, here’s what one transaction I’m planning this week:
Buy 3 CVS brand cotton swabs -$3.19 each
Buy 2 Gold Emblem candies – $0.88 each
Buy 2 Huggies Bath and Body products – $3.49 each
Use $3/15 coupon
Use $3/10 CVS-brand coupon
Use $1/2 Gold Emblem coupon
Use 2 $1/1 Huggies coupons
Spend $9.31 plus tax
Get $10 ECBs back!
Plus, I’d have $1.76 towards the candy deal
If your store allows you to use more than one $1/2 Gold Emblem coupon at a time (they don’t say anything about limits on them, but I’ve heard that using more than one will cause the register to beep and the coupon will have to be manually pushed through), here’s what you could do:
Buy 12 bags Gold Emblem candies at $0.88 each
Use $3/$10 CVS brand coupon
Use 6 $1/2 Gold Emblem coupons
Spend $1.56 plus tax out of pocket
Get $5 ECBs back!
Best of all, this deal has a limit of 5 so you could potentially do the above deal 5 times in different transactions, spend $7.80 out of pocket total plus tax, get $30 ECBs back, and come away with 60 bags of candy!
I’m not sure that I’m needing that much candy this week but for anyone who might have some extra time this week, lots of CVS stores nearby, and be needing a bunch of candy for some upcoming event, go for it!
Also, check the clearance section of your store for BeFine products. Chablis, from Western Illinois reported that she found BeFine clearance products which produced $5 ECBs.
