Olay Coup

BOLO - I found a tearpad on the Olay shelf- it is a mq for $2 off One Olay Product, exp 11/30/12. Excludes trial/travel size and gift packs .
Have the Olay ones. Have you gotten the Herbal Essences $1/1 blinkie? I saw the machines at two of the CVS on Sepulveda Blvd (West LA/ Culver City). Will make a nice deal at WAGs during Black Friday week.

Forgot my stupid 25% Q at home, spent 25 ECB to get 16 ECB!... and that wasn't even the worst part of my trip. They seriously need to make a cart for two kids or a free trip-care service.

Ugh, found out while doing my BF shopping just now that SCOs at my favorite store won't aceept ECBs of $2 or more without cashier intervention. Don't know about MQs- all of mine were <$2. The cashier didn't know what was going on; I figured out the $2 threshold through trial and error. This is going to be a problem.

Smartest thing I've done in a long time...went to CVS at 12:30 AM. It wasn't really busy, there were about 4 others doing the deals. No one was getting more than one cart. I hated that everything was a treasure hunt, althugh I guess things would sell out faster if it was in one display. I got the last scooby doo snacks and play-doh bags. (I only have 1 card) I can't believe less than an hour in, things were gone. The cashier was a young kid, made some small talk with him & he said they were holding some inventory back for the middle of the sale. Kinda makes sense, but the customers either now or later who find what they are looking for OOS will be disappointed.
Anyway, thanks to the CVS peeps for reminding me that some CVS are 24 hours and it's so much better to get it over with!

A good bet is the sale turned on early on Saturday, so those shopping on Saturday late afternoon to close got the deals.

Just an fyi, for any of you who cannot find the Reinventing Beauty magazine in your store. Today I was given one of the free coupon sheets. The supervisor who gave it to me also gave me (accidentally) a page that comes with the magazines It shows the package is from Kimberly O'Connor, Sr Category Manager at CVS Headquarters. The page states:

Urgent-Dated Material
reinventing beauty
MAGAZINE

PLEASE RUSH TO
BEAUTY DEPARTMENT
FOR IMMEDIATE DISPLAY ON THE
SELF-SERVICE UNIT

REPRINTS OF COUPONS
ARE TO BE DISTRIBUTED TO CUSTOMERS

PLEASE DISPLAY PROMINENTLY ON THE
SELF SERVICE UNIT.

Any questions or issues, call 914-935-1000 ext 303
or Email: Lauren@Beautyhandbook.com

SO, if your store doesn't know how to get these magazines, help them out and give them this information!

I'm a long-time CVS shopper and I usually plan my transactions down to the penny in order to use ECBs first and then manufacturer coupons (thus paying tax). Last night, my transaction got a little haywire w/my 5-, 3-, and 1-yo's tagging along, so I paid with ECBs last. I handed over one that was more than the subtotal, noted that AFTER handing it over, and thought an expletive. EEK! To my surprise, it didn't beep to be adjusted down and took me into the negative. I had no B1G1 or B1G50% offers in my order. What's going on??? I tested this again today - again after cashier had totaled the order and rang manufacturer coupons - by handing over an ECB above the subtotal. It was NOT adjusted down and I went into the negative. Is this happening to anyone else? I wonder if I could have used another ECB to go further negative. Confused (Coincidentally, last night, my card # was keyed in first; today it was keyed in midway into the transaction. Made no difference.)

My ECB's have always gave me a negative balance if I give too much, Probably go negative 3 times a week, lol. Are they not supposed to?

Well, WTH? It used to prompt the ECB to be adjusted down if it went into the negative. I guess I've been planning these way too much then. If you're in the negative, can you hand over ANOTHER ECB to go further into the tax?

I just wanted to give a big shoutout to all the CVS SD'ers always sharing their deals, finds, etc in this community. I had a great trip late Saturday night. I had never done the early activation but I knew Sunday morning wasn't gonna work for me so I went in 30 min 'til closing and asked the cashier if the BF deals were active. She said, "Yeah. Have fun!" They had 1/2 the deals on a shelf by the door and the rest were in their respective places. In my pre-coupon days, I would have never, ever thought I could get all these things for free. I have some family staying and gave them a good share for watching the kiddos while I was gone and I'll use the rest. My biggest excitement? Finding the Hot Wheels car for my LO!

How does that even work????

If my subtotal is $1.99 and $1.46 of that is the tax I owe, and I try to use a $2 ECB, the register beeps and the cashier won't accept it.

If at least one item is scanned before your CVS card, your total can go negative after ECB and MQs as long as you have enough tax to cover the overage.

Right, BUT in one instance, my card was scanned BEFORE the first item, and I still went negative. Something's different. I'll try at another store later this week.
