CVS: Free Craig MP3 Players {originaly $79}


CVS: Free Craig MP3 Players

There is an awesome deal at CVS for the Craig MP3 Players.  They are on a super reduced price of only $9.99 (originally $79.99).  The circular shows them advertised at $49.99 with a Free $10 CVS Cash Card (part of the buy $30 get $10 deal).  The great thing is, even though they are reduced to $9.99, they are still producing the $10 CVS Cash Card.  So, completely FREE.

Although the limit of the Cash Card deals is 5, the Craig MP3 player has a limit of 2.  I bought 2 and it worked perfectly.  I used 2 Cash Cards I had already, paid $1.38 in tax (7% for me) and received 2 more Cash Card.

Be sure to check out the rest of the CVS Coupon Match Ups this week.

Thanks hip2save!

    My store only had the ones for 39.99 and they price marked it to 9.99. They wouldn’t give the me 10$ cash either.

    I am going to stop at another CVS on my way home to see if they have any.

    • Arkie

      This was at the Harriman NY store btw.

    Question about the cash card: is it linked to your CVS card, like ECB are, or can you use them with any card? I am going to give mine to my sister (who lives across the country from me) and don’t know if she will be able to use them with her card.

    • Jessica

      It’s a regular gift card. It’s not linked with your cvs card.

    • Cheryl

      I asked this question today at my CVS. They said, NO, it is not attached to the card!!

  • Anonymous

    I just bought 2 in CT yeah! They were behind the register & rang up @ 9.99 no problem..the cashier questioned it..showed his co worker (not sure if she was a manager) but she said it was right..I got my coupon for the cash card but he did have trouble trying to activate it

    Out of stock in Woodbury, NJ
    Out of stock in West Deptford, NJ
    Out of stock in Swedesboro, NJ
    (I did ask store personnel to see if they had any behind the counter in the latter three stores)

    • Tina

      Forgot to say that the 2 I bought were the larger screen in a box and were locked in the glass case that needs an associate to unlock it. They were marked $49.99, but did ring up as $9.99. The coupon for $10 cash card printed without a problem. FYI–I did two separate transactions. Thanks, Cindy!!!!!

      I got two last night in paulsboro. Left 3 behind glad u could get em. I got one from woodbury today.

      • Tina

        Thanks!!! I appreciate that!

  • Deals4ME

  • Deena

    I just left CVS in Northampton, Mass — manager there said they were expecting a truck tonight. I was offered a rain check, which I did not take as I am not going to be crazy if I don’t get one of these. I asked specifically if the rain check would override the price that the register rings. He said that if the register rings a lower price, they honor the lower price (have to by law). He said CVS policy says they have to provide a rain check for anything in the ad unless it says clearance or no rain checks. Has anyone gotten a rain check?

    • Kathy V.

      Yes, I was given a rain check today and it states the price of $9.99 with the $10 CVS card!

        I was told by my local CVS manager that it was a mistake and that corporate had emailed notices to the store managers. The item got sold out so quick that all of my local stores did not put up apparently.

  • M

    E.Rutherford -still had 15 left on shelf

  • Jen

    Out of stock in Marlton

  • yolie

    Still 3 left at the CVS in Sheepshead Bay, Brooklyn, NY. I even got the $10.00 back. This was at 3:24 3/12/12.

    • Mark

      I got mine from that very store early this morning. They had a few boxes full when I went this morning.

  • Jenn

    I went to three CVS stores in CT today and only one of the 3 had the mp3 players left and they all rang up at $49.99 🙁 See this is what happens when I don’t keep on checking this site or reading through all the comments to see that it ended up being a mistake and was fixed before I got there!! lol

    • melissa

      Jenn, Where abouts in CT?

  • eva

    The package says that touching the cord exposes you to lead…. maybe thats why they’re getting rid of them.

    • Liana

      A majority of the electrical, extension, and christmas cords in American households contain varying trace amounts of lead. My assumption is that the packaging carries the warning due to this particular brand being sold nationally in CVS stores throughout the States, one of which is California. Cali, in particular, requires that this warning is placed on any packaging containing products that are made from lead, trace or not. In any case, I wouldn’t worry about this, unless there was a chance someone could end up sucking on the cord (e.g. a young child).

    • Kathy V.

      I was told that they were a special that they had a Christmas time and they are now trying to get rid of them!

  • TQ

    Is this still working?

  • Donna

    I couldn’t find them in my store.

  • JerseyCityWoman

    I just came back from visiting one of the CVSs in Hoboken, NJ that I frequent, and I was lucky! The manager who was in attendance even helped me scan to make sure they were priced at $9.99. I am one happy camper! Thank you Cindy!

    • Ana Karina

      which Hoboken CVS did you go to? the 24hr one or the one on the other side?

      • JerseyCityWoman

        The one on Clinton. The store on Washington (24 hr. one) and the one on 14th, I never seem to find what I want at these stores, even though they are bigger, so I rarely visit them.

  • scott

    Just checked CVS in Western PA. They had 3 of the smaller ones and rang up 9.99 but manager said they received email to pull them off the shelves this morning so he wouldn’t give it to me at that price. The same store sold out of the larger ones last night.

  • Betty

    anybody have any problems setting it up?When i put disc in computer it says not compatible with the windows im running.Im running windows 7 and the mp3 driver says 98.

    • Kathy V.

      If you are running Windows 7, you don’t need the driver. It states in the instructions ” If the operation system of your computer is Windows 98, install the supplied Window 98 driver”

  • Kari

    So is the value of this item considered over $30 and that’s why we still get the cash card? So would you be able to use a $4 my cvs story $3 off $15 coupon with it??

    • Ashley P.

      Yes you can use you coupon, I used my $4 off $20 without a problem – I purchased two at $9.99 and got the $20 cash card which I used to buy the portable DVD player on sale for $19.99, so free!

  • Christina Mathers

    Out of them in Wilkes Barre, PA -Carey Ave store and S. Main st store in WB. But I got an e-reader by Look Book originally $149 for $19!!!

  • Meli

    anyone find them in orange county ny?

    • Linda

      I got 2 in the cvs in Middletown this morning. At 7:00 am the stores in Goshen and Chester were out. There were a few more in Middletown when I left. They were behind the cashier on the wall and no one knew they were the ones on sale.

      • Meli

        i checked goshen and chester and saw someone said none in harriman.. i didnt even think of middletown : (

        • Laura

          Just picked up 2 from Middletown, still more left!

  • thresa

    got two from atlantic city cvs, and got the gift card no problem, paid for the 2 with 10.99 in ECB and a 10 gift card and paid .36 cents

  • Anonymous

    I scored 2 of them in South Jersey! They had pulled them off the shelves due to the price but the manager didn’t care and gave them to me anyway!!!!

    • Rose

      where at in south jersey

      • Anonymous

        Cherry Hill! Its the 4.6 one which is the bigger one. They were in a box behind the register!

  • Rebecca

    I was able to buy two of the 2.8″ ones at the CVS in Havre de Grace, Md but got two $10 ECB instead of the cash cards. They had quite a lot left at 5:30 pm.

  • Martina

    I was in my CVS, Tampa location today, they were out.

  • Christine R

    I found mine at the CVS in Oaklyn, NJ on the White Horse Pike. I got the last 3 and got 3 $10 ECB’s (same loyalty card). I wasn’t expecting the last one but it printed so who am I to argue! The cashier’s eyes were bugging out each time it rang up for $9.99! It actually drew a small crowd of passer-byers who were shocked as well! Very excited to get an early start on my Xmas shopping!

    • stewie

      I got mine there today around 7:48 pm, so I guess you missed one.

      • Jen

        Funny, I called there around 11 am and they claimed they were out 🙁

        • stewie

          I don’t think they knew what they were looking for. I think they must have had some in the aisles and didn’t know that they were also behind the counter. I had to point it out to him behind the counter and he was surprised that they had any left.

  • Pat

    I am on vacation in Florida and I got two this afternoon and my two $10 cash cards. I went back in and got a portable LCD tv for $19.99 with my cash cards. The clerks were completely flabbergasted and had no idea in the store I went to! A customer in back of me saw what I scored and asked the clerk to get her one!! Thanks Cindy!!

  • Annie

    I got the printout on my receipt for the CBS cash but how do I use it? Some people said they put it on a card but my cashier said I use it like a ecb?

  • anna

    got the last 2 of the 2.8in mp3 players in closter, nj & got 2 $10 cash cards. also got a portable dvd player for 19.99. thanks!!!!! =)

  • Katie

    None at the Derby, CT store.

  • heather

    My store in Newark had quite a few when I stopped by on my way to work this morning.

  • Colin

    anyone in NYC have any luck? Went to 4 CVS stores and all of them knew I was coming (all the cashiers asked “why is everyone asking about these?) but none had the proper mp3 on sale.

    • Anonymous

      I got 2 at 10:30 pm, I live in Queens. Paid 9.99 for each and got 20 ECB to redeem for cash card.

    • Kaska

      I got 2 at 10:30 pm in Queens, paid 9.99 each and got 20 cash card.

      • Jenn

        Just out of curiosity, which part of queens? The ones by me close at 9, so I had to be out early to get mine! lol

        • Kaska

          I got it in Ridgewood but my friend went today and she said she got last two. I also checked the one on Myrtle ave in Glendale, they said they don’t have it. The one in Ridgewood ( Fresh Pond Rd )has shippment tonight they may get it and its open 24/7

      • Colin

        I would love to know where in Queens as well.

  • Tanya S.

    This was such a marvelous deal!! Cindy I can’t thank you enough. I’ve downloaded some songs and lovin my player very much, especially for the price I paid.

  • Bernell

    Deal worked for me at 9:00pm tonight in Newtown, PA.
    They even had a e-reader for 19.99…
    I may have to go back! But I did buy the last one!

  • Maureen

    My store said corporate is going to fix it tomorrow so the deal is no longer going to work. Hope you got yours already.

  • Danielle

    I went to cvs to get this all sold out..does anyone know if they will restock this?


    is anyone having any problems with downloading. its says not compatable with our windows. doesnt support itunes music

    • Carol

      Try media monkey. My boys have off brand mp3 players and that works for them. They have a free version.

  • Mimi

    I purchased this at the CVS on River Road in New Milford, NJ on Monday around 12 noon, but it rang up at $49.99. I was going to keep it but realized it isn’t compatible with MAC. Plus, I am bummed about not being able to get it for free as I had over $10 in ECBs. I also checked two other CVS stores in North Bergen and they were all out.

    • Lesley

      Which one on River Road? I am from New Milford, too!

    • Jenny

      Works fine on my Mac!

    • Mimi

      Lesley – I think I took the last one. Actually, it rang up at $79.99 and the cashier price adjusted to the price listed in the circular $49.99.

      Jenny – thanks for letting me know that it works on your Mac.

      • Jenny

        It took a few minutes for it to be recognized as an external disk- then just drag & drop your MP3 files onto it! 🙂 I was worried that it wouldn’t work but it just took a little patience. Hope you enjoy your player 🙂

  • Dawn

    the store in Haddon Heights off of Kings Highway and White Horse Pike has a bunch of them stashed behind the counter but the clerk refused to sell them to me. She said they got a phone call stating to pull what they had off the floor and display them somewhere secure and only sell for $49.99. I called corporate customer service and they said if a customer asks for them and there is no disclaimer posted about the price error then the store has to sell them. Supposedly the district manager is going to call me but I’m sure they’ll be sold out by the time I get back over there.

    • Krystle

      What a crazy story!! Good luck, I really hope you get something out of that. That’s just not right.

    • Anonymous

      That’s nuts…with the ridiculously small amount of business that CVS does (they never have any customers in there)…you would think that they’d be grateful for some business — any business!

  • J.

    Linden NJ had 3 left.

  • Bertie

    I went to CVS yesterday and got 2 Graig mp3 . Went back today to see if they got more in there delivery. The sales “lady” said they were still unloading told her I will check back at 5pm she said I dout we will know by then. I asked for rain check she said I’m only aloud 2 per sale I said that is per transaction she said per sale and walked away. Is she right ???

  • Susie

    My CVS had a sign right above the coupon machine stating that the $9.99 price was correct, but in order to receive the $10 cash card you must spend $30

    • Mimi

      The CVS I went to today had the same sign but the reward printed out even though my total was less than $30.

  • Mimi

    I found the $9.99 MP3 at the CVS on Kinderkamack Rd in Bergen County (not sure what town). When I first went in the store, they had about ten. I bought two at 11am and returned to purchase the last two around 1pm on my husband’s CVS card. These rang up at 9.99 each and generated the $10 reward each with no problems.

    Now I realize the one I purchased yesterday for $49.99 was different than these.

  • Danielle

    I went to my CVS today and was told that all the CVS’ are out of them… and that the ones for $9.99 were a clearance item and they were out of those as well… oh well, was worth a shot!

  • Julie

    CVS in Madison, CT still had 2 left when I left there this morning around 11am.

  • Krystle

    They’re out just about everywhere in New London County, Connecticut.

  • Meli

    Hi whoever got the ereader for 19.99 how is it?

    • Christina Mathers

      I just hooked it up to my wifi…that wasn’t working for a couple of days…I will let you know so far so good though…battery might not last too long…will provide and update soon!

  • Kimberly

    I still cant find any in CT. Anyone know of any stores that have them? Thanks!
