CVS: How to Roll Your ECBs This Week

CVS:  How to Roll Your ECBs This Week

Here is a great way to roll your Extra Care Bucks this week so that you can get the lowest out of pocket possible.    There are many ways you can choose to do the deals and your deals may vary depending on your coupons and the products that you need.  This is just an example to help you get started and get you thinking about your own deals.

Remember, if you already have an ECB from this week, to include that in your first transaction.  These ideas are done as if you have no ECB to start with.

Transaction #1:

Buy 1 Excedrin 6 ct $0.99
Pay: $0.99 + any tax
Get a $0.99 ECB

Transaction #2:

Buy 1 Colgate Max Fresh Toothpaste $2.79

Transaction #3:

    Question. Wha is a “All You May”?

    • Anonymous

      It’s a magazine…”all You” magazine, May issue.

    • Jen

      All you is a magazine, the coupon is in the May issue.

  • Jennifer

    All you is a magazine, May is the issue the coupon can be found in. hth!

    Most of these items and coupons wouldn’t help me out. There are only two senior adults in this household and we only shop once per month. We don’t use 99% of the coupons we get in our weekend paper. Plus, to me, it’s not a good deal when you have to buy 2 or 3 of anything.

    We have a salvation army store here, and I can get name brand toothpaste for 99 cents per tube, toilet paper multi pack for $2.95, when they have pain relief meds they are only 99 cents each. Now that’s a deal, and we stock up on those things.

      I would never pay for toothpaste. I am not sure what name brand toothpaste is but I have got every brand free, most I make money on.

      Why pay for pain relief meds?

      I think you are missing the boat. The name brand boat.

      maybe you took a wrong turn somewhere on the internet? this is a couponing site. if you’re not interested in couponing, maybe like would be more interesting to you?

    THANK YOU so much for explaining how to roll your rewards in such detail! I printed out the instructions and went to CVS and did just as you explained. Then I noticed at the bottom of my last receipt it said, “Get a $5.00 gift card for talking to the pharmacist.” I sent my husband to go say “Hi” to the pharmacist and they gave him the gift card. After that, we found a penny on the ground. Not only were we happy about our deals, we had a fun and couldn’t stop laughing.

  • lina

    I bought 3 papers today, can i do the transactions above over and over until all my coupons are used for the products listed above? new to couponing…thanks!!!

  • Cincinnati CVS has $2.5 ECB, so it comes as free!
    Happy mouth washing couponing!

  • Brennan

    My Ban coupon is for $1/2

    Since I already have over $10 in ECB from the past, could I just combine all items in one transaction. Subtotal (after coupons) 12.57 (pay difference after ECB) and get $10.49 in new ECB to use next week?

    I have done 3 or 4 transactions in one visit before but I prefer to do 1 or 2 and 5 seems excessive. Although, if I HAD to, I would do 5! lol Anything for the lowest out of pocket! Right? lol

  • Angela E

    Is anyone else having trouble with Recyclebank? It doesn’t sign me in when I put in my e-mail and password. Just takes me back to the page that would come up if you weren’t signed in. I tried using facebook to login and then I got a Yahoo search page “404 – Page not found”

    Any thoughts?

    this worked perfectly! and the man behind the counter was the mgr and he was so nice about it! not like the man at my walgreens…i have NIGHTMARES about that man lol

      You must go to my Walgreens then! The “what seems to be” assistant manager guy is always complaining about all the coupons and about the catalina machine malfuntioning and telling me I don’t understand how it works but then when he rings stuff up separately, as he says it should be done, it’s not printing a catalina either. He does get things working or makes things come out right but begrudgingly so.

        i go to the one in old bridge nj. well barely anymore. only if the deal is too good to pass up. i swear he even looks at me funny when i walk in…
