My Trip to CVS

1I was super excited about going to CVS especially since I knew that I would be getting like $5 in overage from buy the Clear Scalp and I would be getting $1.75 from Ibotta!  I actually bought the Zantac as a filler item to help me get to $20 so I could use a $4/$20.

Here are my gets CVS:

Bought 1 Clear Men Scalp Therapy Shampoo $4.99
Bought 1 Clear Scalp Conditioner $0.00 (buy the poo get conditioner free)
Bought 1 Zantac 24ct $7.99 (from a raincheck)
Bought 1 Revlon Lip $6.99
Bought 1 Revlon Nail Color $4.99

Total = $24.96

Used -$4/$20 CVS Coupon (from eBay)
Used (2) -$2 Clear Hair Care Product Printable
Used (2) -$3 CVS Clear Hair Care Product CRT
Used -$5 Zantac (home mailer)
Used -$2 CVS Zantac (from CVS account)
Used -$4 in Extra Bucks (reduced down to $3.96)

Total after coupons used = $0.00

EBs Earned = $8 – $2 Revlon Nail, $4 Revlon Lip and $2 Zantac (from raincheck)

Ibotta Earned = $1.75 Clear Men Scalp Therapy Shampoo 12.9oz

Notes: The thing that I love about CVS is that they always honor their rainchecks! I told the cashier that I had a raincheck and I handed to her and she manually reduced the amount of the Zantac and proceeded with scanning the rest of my items. After she totaled out everything and gave me my receipt, she then manually printed my $2 Extra Bucks. Easy Peasy.

    I thought it was CVS policy not to take MQs with other store logos?

      It is part of CVS’s policy, however, CVS also leaves it up to the store manager discretion. CVS also has a policy not to take expired coupons but some stores do take expired manufacturer coupons, CVS coupons and expired Extra Bucks.

    If I got a raincheck for an item that was out of stock, and before the week is ended I buy the restocked items…. can I still use my raincheck in the future?

      Yes, you can still use that raincheck at a later date! It’s one of the things I love about CVS.

    Anyone notice that these Clear bottles leak badly? I went to three stores and all had product leaking outside of those caps.

      They weren’t leaking at my store, I would have something gross like that….yuck, leaking hair care items is not good!
