CVS Ad Scan for 11.23.14 thru 11.26.14

Hey, Y'all!
The holiday season rush is upon us.  It extends thru the end of the year. 
I want to share this CVS ad for the weekend before Thanksgiving.  I looked forward to this same CVS FREE Extravaganza last November.  I happened to be in the store the night before it started.  A couponer emerged from check out with a receipt filled with at least a dozen or more ExtraCareBucks Rewards.  The register receipt was longer than the height of the lady who made the purchases.  I was green with envy! But, I knew I could come back later in the week to get the exact same deals and end up with a bucket-load of ExtraCareBucks Rewards.  
I returned the day after Thanksgiving to cash in on all those juicy deals.  HOWEVER, I did not read the front page of the CVS circular.  I missed the part that said the FREE EVENT was to end the day before Thanks-giving.  I was distraught and promised I would not miss it this year and I won't.
Below, you will find a preview of the CVS circular that will come in your newspaper Sunday, November 23rd or on the day before, if you have home delivery.  As always, you can get the sale prices in the circular at CVS after 6 PM Saturday evening.  Click this link or download the pdf attachment: CVS AD Scan for Nov 23 thru Nov 25 ONLY!  (Ad scan from

Don't forget to scan your CVS card at the CVS magic red box machine inside the store.  You will receive a 79¢ coupon for a free roll of the CVS brand paper towels and no tax.

Thanks to Theresa (one of my CouponBees) I found yet another source for some great coupons.  Here's Teresa's tip:
"Make sure you are getting the P&G coupon books at Family Dollar and Rite Aid.  I am using the dawn 40¢ q at Harris Teeter making my Dawn 20¢ each." ​

Inline image 1​ Hey, I went right out to my nearest Family Dollar and scored two coupon books.  They are "hidden" behind the counter and you have to ask for them.  I was given just one and my friend got one, too and gave it to me. 
Finally, Noodles and Company just opened a eatery near my home.  I signed up on their website and just received my "Happy Birthday Noodle Bowl".  My birthday is actually in January but I wanted it to be in November because we will not be home for most of January and summertime is too hot for noodle soup.  So, I will visit the new Harris Teeter and then stop by for my free bowl of noodle soup on the way home.  
Happy Couponing!​

Couponing Updates...

Hey, Y'all!
I have been having an awesome time couponing.  When I feel a little overwhelmed with all that I have on my platter, I go couponing.  There is nothing like walking in the store and walking out with loads of free and nearly free stuff.
Saturday, I hit my local ShopRite with apparently every other couponer in Maryland.  I could count the non-couponers on one hand.  Nearly every single shopper had a fist full of coupons or a huge binder bursting at the seams with coupons.  I even saw one of my CouponBeeBuddies there, too.  She shared some great coupons with me.  She was so very sweet to do that.  Me...I don't share my coupons unless they are getting ready to expire and I know I won't use them.  That's when I transform into the "Coupon Fairy".  That makes be feel better about not sharing :o)
I got this email from one of my NJ BizzyCouponBees.  I am so very proud of her:

You would be so proud of me.
ShopRite had Ziploc bags on sale for 1.99 a box (reg 2.49).  I had $1 off 2 coupon that I printed from one of the coupon sites this morning.  I bought 4 boxes (gallon size with the slider) using 2 coupons.  Total bill 5.96.  Not great but then I got a $3 coupon off next order and a $2.75 off next order.  So 4 boxes cost me 21 cents.  Now that's a home run. 

I also stopped into my local Staples and bought my 4 reams of paper for 1¢ per ream (after mail in rebate).  My out of pocket was $20.36 (incl. tax).  I just submitted my rebate online and will get a check for $19.16.  So, my actual cost w/the tax will be $1.20 or 30¢ per ream.  It seams like Staples has this or a similar sale every week BUT you must use the coupon available online only at I have nearly 50 reams of paper!!!  I have taken the cost of paper out of my couponing. 

​Next, Monday, November 10th is the last day you can get $5 at CVS for getting your flu shot.  I was counting on this but they are all out of the special vaccine for ol' folks like me.  I will go to my doctor next week to get mine and walk away with a sore arm and no coupons.
Finally, I now have a Harris Teeter in my neighborhood.  At least, it is only about 5 miles from my house instead of 10+.  I pass it everyday and want have to make an out of the way trip to cash in on the Super Doubles coupon event when it shows up sometime in December.

That's it! 
​Happy Couponing!​
