  1. Rachel says

    If purchased on saturday under the aussie/herbal deal.. What’s that mean? Doesnt the deal only run sun-sat?

      • Emily says

        I think it was recomended to go on Saturday [but only if your store is 24hr] because the coupon expired Saturday, the 30th.

        • Rachel says

          I still don’t get it.. Even if it is “Saturday” at midnight. It’s still may 1.. Making the coupon expired

          • Emily says

            If the CVS is 24hrs, they will change the sale’s sometime in the afternoon/early evening. So you can do last weeks deals and the coming weeks deals at the same time. And then you are able to use the expiring coupon. But /only/ if your store is 24hr, regular stores don’t do this.

    • Rae says

      My store (unadvertised of course) starts the next weeks sales on Saturday afternoon. I don’t know what time but I know I have been there around 3pm and had it work. My store is not a 24hour store either. Not sure if all stores change at the same time though

      I actually stumbled upon it on accident a couple summers ago when I went in to get a buy $20 in coke get $10ecb and could not figure out why my ecb didn’t print when I bought the correct amount of 12packs. I looked at my receipt and saw that they were on a bigger sale (because the next week they were on a cheaper sale) so I had to buy a few more packs. Between the sale combo and my coupons, I ended up paying like $.60 per 12pack. It was crazy!

  2. alicia says

    My CVS ad says there are $3 off Ensure coupons in todays paper. I don’t see it. Does anyone else have them in their inserts?

    • Emily says

      I got the coupons[central Indiana] — $2 off a 4 pack and buy 3 get one free in the SS insert.

  3. Jennifer says

    On the Right Guard deal, if it says limit 2, doesn’t that mean you will get $2 ECB if you purchase 2, making them .50 each? Or do you not get the ECB on the free one? Thanks for your help!

    • Emily says

      No. You can buy two items for a total of $4.98 and then get $2 in ecb back. Plus other coupons that you may have. Hope that answers your question!

      • Jodi says

        Look for $1 peelies on the Rt Guard body wash. I used a BOGO and one $1 q, paid 1.99 oop and got 2 EB.

  4. Rebekah says

    Don’t forget to check your p&G coupon book that came in the mail (if you sent away for it – tip from MSM last week??) There’s 50cents off ivory soap and a 50 cents off Dawn too!

  5. Amber says

    Ok I don’t feel to smart right this minute…I keep seeing them but wonder WHERE your finding the inserts at?

  6. Eli says

    Ivory bar soap will be free if you got the $1 coupon in 5/1. I picked one from CVS today for free.

    • Eli says

      Is there really another Eli out there besides me?? lol sorry just don’t see my name very often!

  7. alicia says

    In Lancaster the Right Guard body wash is only $2.49. So after the B1G1 and $2 EB’s it makes them only .25 each.

  8. Tammy says

    I have the Red Plum 5/1 and did not get the Right Guard coupon, anyone know why???
    Also, in that same insert I got a $1.00 off of one Aussie or HE and not the $.50 (which I’m not complaining about, just wonder why I am getting different coupons?)

    • Darcy says

      Unfortunately coupon inserts are not the same everywhere. I’m not sure why they decide it this way because it’s lame! I miss out on a lot of the hot ones, too. But I guess that’s why many people use coupon clipping services – to make up for the discrepancies of their local papers.
