Feel free to discuss complaints, shopping trips, etc.......CVS related and off topic too! I'm hoping this will unclog the weekly threads a bit. Smilie

You must shop at my store. Huh

I have a cashier I have reported to Customer Care twice in the last month. She's an absolute pit bull. Fortunately, the manager backs me up. Sure, I might have to show some cleavage or bat my eyelashes but hey, what's a little cleavage when there's a boatload of free razors on the line? Rofl2 Rofl2
Oh, at first I thought you were trying this on the cashier.Confused

I will occasionally mention to a cashier how I like their hairstyle (something cool and different) or nail art. I never hope to gain anything by it, but perhaps they think I am trying. I just really enjoy a cool enamel color or well done art.

I just received my quarterly ECB of $3.50!!! This means I'm spending wayyyyyy too much out-of-pocket at CVS, doesn't it? I thought most couponers were in the 50-cent range!

Not necessarily! Did you buy a bunch of FAC diabetes meters? If so and if you're a member of the diabetes program, the price of each meter gets added to your quarterly spending. My quarterly spending was over $200 and I never paid more than $1 OOP (and never more than a few pennies as of August when my fave store manager finally agreed that a negative subtotal was okay if the register allows it). I got $4 EB's and DH got $5. (I think he also had 2 Rx's on his card.)

Eh, only if you think so. I know the gas card deals somehow messed with the totals and then the meters have also been mentioned. You use their pharmacy? That counts too. I have gotten as much as $5 back when I had ran out of ECB and was buying up clearanced diapers and pull-ups. Did I spent a boatload of OOP that I normally wouldn't? nod but I still saved over $400 over the regular price.

FWIW, I try to keep a little spreadsheet of all my OOP at the drugstores. When I reach a certain amount, I cut back.... Others like doing the envelope system. Whatever works for you. And, in the end, if you spent $40 in a month but you got diapers, razors, shaving cream, shampoo, chocolate, deodorant and other items that you would've bought anyway (and spent quite a lot more) then so be it.... You probably would've spent just as much on the diapers alone and gotten none of the other freebies....

How long does it take the savingstar savings to show up online? Remember reading someone in the one of the CVS thread said they got it pretty quick. I got $20 Nexxus in the AM, so wondering when can I expect to show in my account. TIA

A couple of days or so for me. I bought Nexxus Sunday and got the money in my account yesterday.

Do you do resale?

Do you live in a HCOLA ?

What other stores do you shop at? Is CVS the only drugstore?

What percentage of groceries do you buy at CVS?
Do you fill scripts? Diabetes club?

How big is your family?

Do you buy items for gifts or donation at CVS?

Have I made my point ? Smilie

No point in comparing yourself to "most couponers", what matters is your own income, budget, space consideration & needs/ wants. nod

My Quarterly ECB is $15... perhaps that is higher than other SDers but I think I am playing the coupon game as well as any other poster would with my constraints / needs / income.

I have over $30,000 in Savings this year alone and only received $0.50 in Quartely ECB. Guess I didn't spend enough, lol.

I got $2 ECB. But my coupons don't affect my tax so that automatically counts towards spending. Just pay tax on a gc though Smilie

Question- On my online account it shows some of the crt that are printing me at the Red Machine. I know I printed my body was one and used it but it is still showing up there, don't they disappear when you use them?

There's a new CVS opening near my work!! I am a huge Rite Aid shopper and am sometimes jealous when seeing some CVS posts. I only work Friday and Saturday and it's an hour from my house so I hope stock will not be an issue if I don't go until Friday.

Do they have any special sales for a grand opening?
I am not sure when they are opening but I can't wait. Any Advise? I have been reading everything I can on the deals. I think I understand everything but any extra tips would be appreciated.
