You know the's some tips for the CVS run

I'm not going to bore you with the deals you already know. There aren't that many this week so it seems silly to post about the same ones everyone esle already has posted. However, I did learn a couple of things this week.

#1: Make sure you use those ECB's on things you actually need, too. That's why we do this whole thing - to save money on the things we need. If you've got some ECB's stocked up than use them for things like, tampons, milk, wipes, diapers - that's what they are there for! Combine with a coupon and you are not "wasting" those ECB's you are using them for a good purpose.

#2: Scan your card on the scanner as many times as it will let you! I scanned mine 3 times in one visit! The first time I got a $5/30 and a $5/25, the second I got a $5/25, and the third I got $1/2 Gold emblem candy and $1/1 CVS vitamin (which you could use on the Vitamin ECB this month).

Hope that was helpful!

Great tips! Sadly my local store doesn't have a scanner machine. But sometimes extra coupons print at the register.

Where do you scan your card? At the register or at the price check kiosk?

I agree! I see people just accumulating and accumulating, but for what purpose? I usually go and just blow some on things we need every so often. Plus if I need something, I know I can just hand hubby some ECBs and let him pick it up. It's not wasting it if you need it. That's the whole point of doing the CVS thing. Great post!
