CVS Primer and a litte more...

Hey, Everyone!

Don't forget to scan your CVS card at the Magic Red Coupon Center each time you go to the store.  You can scan once per day.  Remember this tip:  Keep scanning until the screen tells you there are no more coupons.  I have scanned as many as FOUR times and got all different coupons.

If the Coupon Center is out of order, tell the clerk and/or the manager.  You can always scan at another CVS.  If you find that your favorite CVS seems to have a non-functioning center more than it works, contact CVS Customer Service and make a complaint.

One more tip: join the CVS Advisor Team and score some high value ExtraCareBucks for completing CVS surveys.  I have done several and have gotten ECBs for $5 to $10 each.  The survey comes to you via email about once every 4 to 6 weeks...sometimes longer.  BUT, if you don't jump on them when you see them, their quota is soon filled and you won't be able to participate. 
Next, do you have little ones or big ones preparing to return to school?  Check out this BACK TO SCHOOL SALE which will be the first of many this month and next.  

All of the Dollar Stores (Family Dollar, Dollar Tree, & Dollar General) accept coupons.  BUT, it can be frustrating to shop there with coupons.  Why? Because, they like to play "trick the couponer" games.  The coupon may read "8 oz size or larger" but they will only carry 7.5 oz and you cannot use the coupon.  Or worse yet, they will not stock the item until the coupon expires.  I have the most success at Dollar General and Family Dollar.  Match the coupon exactly with the item and you will not have any problems.  

As far as I know, Dollar Stores do not issue rain checks.  I have never asked.  I am usually so frustrated at Dollar Tree that I just walk out with my coupons.  That is what they want.

Family Dollar and Dollar General issue their own coupons and these can be stacked with manufacturer's coupons.  Check the circulars available in newspapers and at the stores.

One last treat...
Here are a couple of coupons I just received:
FREE Pulled Pork Sandwich meal from Bob Evans (BOGO)

Happy Couponing!
