Coupon Policy - CVS

So CVS has finally put out a corporate coupon policy!  FINALLY!  The great news about this means, that all CVS's will be created "equal" now, and if your cashier is ever unsure of if a coupon is acceptable you can now pull out your very own copy of their coupon policy.  Find the policy here, and make sure to print your own copy to carry with you when you are shopping with coupons!

Here are some of the highlights:
  • Coupons and their face value cannot be exchanged for cash or gift cards
  • Competitor coupons are not accepted at CVS/pharmacy
  • The total value of the coupon may not exceed the value of the transaction.
    • Sales tax must be paid if required by law
    • The coupon will be reduced if it exceeds the value of the item after other discounts or coupons are applied. (For example, a $5 coupon for a $4.99 item will result in a $4.99 coupon value)
  • CVS/pharmacy accepts valid internet/print at home coupons containing a barcode
Much more to the please read their coupon policy!

CVS also has an Extra Care Bucks (ECB) deal, where if you buy certain products during each week you will receive ECBs for them.  These are coupons, but act more like "gift certificates".  Unlike WAGs, you do not have to have a specific item for these ECBs to go with.  So that means if you buy Tide Detergent for $11.94 and use a $0.75/1 coupon (8/28 PG) you can also use any ECBs you may have from previous purchases.  There is no need for filler items!
