Extreme Couponing Tip: CVS Deals Track on Your Receipt
Last night after my Couponing Workshop I had the opportunity to chat with some of the people that attended. I love getting feedback from people on the workshops and on the site as it helps to make it a better experience for everyone. One of the ladies mentioned to me that she had just realized, after many months of shopping at CVS, that you do not have to buy all of your items at one time while doing an Extra Care Bucks deal. She was thrilled to find out that if her local store was low on stock, she could buy what they had there and continue here shopping at a different CVS store.
I did not mention that in the workshop and I realized I do not mention that a lot on the site. So, this is my opportunity, for those of you that do not know, to make you aware of that great feature at CVS.
CVS Deals Track:
CVS deals track which means that if you need to buy 2 items in a deal, you can buy 1 at one store and 1 at another store. Once you make your purchase, you simply need to look at the bottom of your receipt to see how much you have toward a deal.
CVS Receipt Example:
You can see above example that there was deal for Slim-Fast, Buy 2 Get a $2 ECB. In this example, only 1 Slim-Fast was purchased, showing the Quantity Toward This Reward as 1. The quantity needed to earn the reward is 1 and it is shown right on the receipt. So, on another day, time or store, you can buy your second Slim-Fast product and your ECB will print at that time.
For the Dial Deal, the offer is buy 1 Get a $2 ECB. The Dial was purchased so the receipt show that the Offer Limit was reached.
Splitting Transactions for Coupon Restrictions:
Tracking of purchases is also helpful if there is limit on the amount of coupons you can use per transaction. Most of the P&G coupons only allow for 4 “like” coupons per transaction. If you plan on buying 5 of the same P&G products for a deal, you can do this deal in 2 transactions.
