  • ashley

    Hi, this is the first time i receive a $5 beauty reward. What can i use it on?

  • George

    Quick question if Colgate products are spend $10 get a $5 Ecb with a limit of two ecbs per household can I purchase $20 worth of Colgate products in a single
    transaction and get two $5 ebbs? Or do I have to separate these transactions to get both $5 ecbs?

    • Aimee

      Yes, you can spend $20 worth of products in one transaction and will get a $10 ecb instead of 2 $5 ecb’s. A lot of people do separation transactions because they want to have a lower out of pocket by rolling their ecb’s.

  • Shannon

    The extra bucks reward, can that be used on the same day you receive it or do you have too wait until the next day too use the rewards?

  • Ann Marie Howard

    I always get confused when putting together shopping scenarios at CVS when I have multiple different coupons, such as $/$$, and purchased based coupons, as well as % off coupons. What order do I figure the coupons to get the right amount? Every time I get to the register, it figures it out different from my scenario. Could you maybe make a video explaining the order of coupons and the best way to use them? I am a visual person so a video would be great! Thank you so much LRWC team! Your help is so greatly appreciated!
