Someone is selling Green Bag tags for $4.95 + $1.95 s&h on ebay. Is that a joke?
Assuming a basic listing --- the first 50 listings PER month are free --- no insertion fees. If you actually sell anything, then eBay has a final value fee & assuming the auction/ buy it now is paid for through paypal, a Paypal fee.

Was the listing started in January? Maybe the seller had some free listings still available.

Exactly the same here. I tried changing my email address last week and still nothing.
My experience exactly.
I'm thinking of dumping my old card. I've heard that if you have the clerk open your acct within the register, and update your email, that may bump your acct to provide $X/$XX coupons.
I tried it...and it worked for awhile 2-3 months. Then I took a Drugstore Sabbatical for Q4 and I'm back to the situation you describe.

Well, you can't buy them in stores anymore. How else are you gonna get them? Wink

Some lady walked into my CVS the other day and asked about the green bag tag, and the manager told her about the program, then apologized and said that if she didn't already have a tag, there was no way for her to get one now, although they'll still scan tags for anyone who already has one. Disappointed, she turned around and left the store. I almost wanted to chase her down and offer to sell her one of mine for $1. LMAO

Green Bag Tag - but didn't someone say it was ending in August? That seems like a waste of money, IMHO. $7 divided by .25 earning per scan = 28 visits before you start earning money back. Eh, not for me.

You could instead buy 4-5 sets of $/$$ and make at least $60-$70 from the total savings. Then again, those may be going away soon too! laugh out loud

I think most of the CVS regulars have several green tags. I remember one week, maybe around Earth Day, that the magic red machine was spitting out CRTs for free bag tags.

I don't even keep tags on my bags anymore, I just hand a tag over with my CVS card ---- too many times a WAGs, Ralphs/Kroger or Target cashier have tried to charge me for the reusable bag by scanning that tag.

I thought it was suppose to end in March. If so not much time to use those tags.

I keep mine in my CVS envelope/coupon holder. I have had at T someone try to charge me for my reusable bag but I let them know it was mine I brought in. I think that was when they first started getting people to use them.

You know what would be super-awesome? A post outlining tips and tricks for keeping track of more than one CVS card easily. It's a snap at RA because everything is interchangeable, but the thought of trying it with CVS gives me cold sweats! Is it as hard as I think? Is it realistic for a small-time couponer (6 inserts a week?). Do you frequently use more than one card in the same store at the same time? Does it work better if you have multiple CVS stores to choose from? So many questions! What have been your experiences?
CVS is easy. Just get a paper clip and attach all of your ECB's and CRT's to each card. Expired CRT's go in a shoebox. Keep your last receipt attached to your card as well so that you know exactly where you are in the deals. I have 2 folders in my car. One is for CVS cards I've used that day. The other folder is for cards I haven't used yet. I never bring more than 1 card into the store at a time. My shopping habits are based on getting $4/$20's. I do $25 - $50 orders at multiple stores. If I didn't get $4/$20's, I'd do larger orders at fewer stores (or I might stop shopping at CVS entirely). It looks like $10/$50's are starting to print out again so that will mean $50 - $100 orders. I never get the 20% off coupons except on the rare occasions that the machine is nice to me. When I do get one, I'm so stunned that I almost don't know what to do...

I'm sorry if I put this in the wrong thread, but today J&J returned my Topical health Rebate (buy 3 neosporin, band aid, bengay, etc.. receive $5) saying that I have not purchased the correct Item (neosporin), but everything is fine and I purchased the right products! I can't find an 1-800 # that I can call. The one on the J&J site is for all other things.
Anybody on SD with the same problem? TIA
Same thing happened to me. My rebate was returned and it said that the lip therapy was not valid when there was a picture of the exact product on the form. I searched on the Healthy Essentials website and found this contact info. Consumer Care Center toll free at 1-800-526-3967, Monday to Friday, 8am to 8pm EST. Called and explained the situation and they said they have been getting alot of complaints about this rebate. They took my information over the phone and mailed me a $5 check that I received today. It only took a few days. I did not have to resend the form. BTW....they did ask where I got their number and I told them from their website. Hope this information helps.

sorry for the rant, but this was about the fifth time in less than a day I had to read stuff that I read before or knew about for weeks. My time is precious and I always used SD as my source for being able to drop in, get a quick overview of the newest deals after I had made my own list and devised my attack for the week. Lately it has become more of a time waster as I read the same stuff over and over, same question over and over. SD was always Deals 301 or 401 never deals for dummies. I have heard complaints from others how this forum has become more "spoon-feedish" and always took those comments with a grain of salt. But over the last year it has, unfortunately, been made that way. I was hoping to try to nudge things back a bit so perhaps some others won't leave and you will find as those who master this art leave, this forum will have less value FOR EVERYONE.



With all the info in one place forum users could just go there, pull what info they deem important and do their deals. No need to shout how you combine things. Then maybe stock would still be on the shelves on Wed. or heaven forbid, Saturday.

I know it is easy to get caught up in wanting to report what MM or good deals we all get. And yes, we should report when something like a clearance item works for a deal. That is providing good info for those who read the forums. And I know liv4god is relatively newly back into the game as she didn't even know her store carried AG. I went so far as to post I was on my soapbox meaning I know the comment was OT and was meant to be taken as a rant not an attack.



Extreme couponing on TV ruined or certainly has curtailed the coupon arena, let's not have the internet and over-full mommy blogs do the same to drugstore and grocery deals. PLEASE.

thank you for posting this.
I may be one of the few who can't read every post of all these threads of these type of deals every day, so I do appreciate it when someone shares helpful ideas even though it may have been already been posted earlier. It may be annoying to some but its' helpful to others.
I know your orig. comment was made with the soapbox note, but it came off harsh.

Personally, I don't mind the repetition, altho obviously, to a point.
If each post in the thread was well written and on topic, I'll bet that would make a difference.

I don't always catch/remember stuff the first time. Maybe I didn't pay attention to the card deal last time because I didn't need cards, but now I am interested, for example. Maybe I took that week off and didn't keep up on all the deals. In fact, I do read pretty much every post every week (sometimes I do skim rather fast) and I still miss stuff.
I do agree about the mommyblogs, tho, it would be nice to keep them in check, and I suppose being more stealth about the deals might help.

In regards to a Green Bag Tag, they all the have the same UPC code and can be put into an smartphone card app like Key Ring. Or you can just take a picture of the tag with your cell phone and present the picture for scanning. As long as you're using a cloth bag the cashiers at my CVSii accept this method.

FYI - the Softsoap hand soap refill on clearance counted towards beauty club.

Wow, you've been doing this for a while! I think I'm going to spend some more time watching all of the CVS threads carefully until I'm better able to answer my own questions, and then I'll add on a second card. I appreciate all of the info you've shared; it's reassuring that it won't be as hard as I thought once I'm better initiated!

This is what I was missing! I thought you could still buy them for $1, and that's why I was so confused by the huge ebay price!
