A reader, Nick, let us know the following:

Check in-store at CVS for Melatonin. Their brand, 120 tablets, 5 or 10 mg, 99 cents!!!
Good 12/26-1/1. Do not go by what the app says, look in the store.

Thanks, Nick!

    Keep in mind melatonin is found in 2 or 3 different places.

    There are scattered β€œletter” vitamins too like B-12, C and D. The quick way to spot is just to look for a big 99 cent tag, then see if what it is attached to is something you need. For protection then scan the barcode at the magic coupon machine it will then say something like β€œRegular price $11.49, Sale price?$0.99”.

    All 99 cent items are CVS brand. There is a completely separate sale including name brands that gives $10 ExtraCare back on a $30 purchase but the 99 cent specials aren’t included in that batch.

    In fact, Melatonin 10 mg 120 ct is not on sale, only 60 ct.

      This is a YMMV offer, I bought 2 of the 3 mg/120 tablets for 99 cents each. My sister had none of these 99 cent items in her store. I don’t recommend 10 mg of melatonin except for very experienced users who know they can tolerate that high of a dosage.

      Since many of us are in a CVS anyway during the week it only takes a second to look. Again, the app didn’t show me any of these specials, you have to go into the store.

    Beside of Melatonin, you can get some vitamins C, D, B-12 and Zinc on the same sale of 99c.

      Thanks Nick! It was weird when I bought more than three the fourth one would ring up regular price. He price adjusted the fourth for me.

        I read somewhere that there is a limit of 3.
