CVS Deals: Week of 1/2/10

I already told you about my favorite deal at CVS this week (the Excedrin money-maker), but here’s a look at some of the other great bargains youc can get starting tomorrow. Remember, I share what I think are the best opportunities for my readers, but for all of this week’s match-ups, you should visit Crystal at The Thrifty Mama.

New to shopping at CVS? Get started by reading my How to Shop at CVS Tutorial, and read my post on why I recommend shopping at (seemingly overpriced) drugstores.

Have you started “CVSing”? What’s on your list for this week? Share your plans in the comments below!


  1. I tried to use a target coupon at CVS on Friday and they would not take it. Know anything about this?

    • Adina – Did you use a Target store coupon or a Target manufacturer coupon? There are two different kinds hosted on their webpage. The manufacturer coupons will say that across the top. If it was a manu Q, they should have taken it without a problem. If they didn’t, you can always politely ask to speak with the manager. If it was a store Q, unfortunately you are out of luck! Just chalk it up to the coupon learning curve 🙂

  2. I found your blog a few weeks ago, and I’m hooked! I’ve been taking baby steps with the CVS stuff, and so far so good. I did want to point out, though, that the Wisk detergent is on sale 2 for $10, not 2 for $5…certainly a better deal than full price, but not the steal of $.50/bottle in your scenario above…unless your store is offering a much better deal than mine!
