Reasons to Go To CVS in April 2009 ($/$$ coupons and a $10 Free-After-ECB item)

I received a mood-altering pamphlet of coupons from CVS in the mail today. It really got me excited about going back to CVS; I've been a bit CVS MIA since the holidays, having made only 2 or 3 trips since January because the deals and exisitng CVS coupons haven't been that swell lately.

Among the mailed pamphlet coupons: Several once-per-week $3/$15 coupons, and a $4/$20 purchase coupon! Woo hoo! These are the coupons that make CVS couponing truly worthwhile since they take the rest of the purchase cost 'edge' off. When you get your mitts on $/$$ coupons, be sure to hand them over before any other coupons, so the $$ part of the ratio qualifies. (Ex. if you ring up $15.50 worth of stuff, hand over the $3/$15; otherwise any other coupons will make your subtotal under $15 and the computer will then reject your $3/$15 later.)

If you're wondering how to get coupons mailed to you from CVS, you need to create an online account at and explicitly attach your account to your CVS ExtraCare Card number. There is also an option among the account tabs that you can check to ask CVS to email you and/or mail you coupons. The default is not to send you these, so you'll need to go out of your way to check that option once you create and account and attach your ExtraCare card number to it.

Unfortunately, the $/$$ coupons aren't usable until starting next week, so I'll be heading over to IHeartCVS for previews on the coming weeks' deals to see what transaction I can start to plan.

Here is the best freebie deal from the April CVS coupon matchups (2009). For the rest of the April CVS coupon matchups, visit Erica's April CVS matchup page!
