Coupon policy FAQ

What happens when I want to use a coupon with a value that is higher than the amount I am purchasing? You may still use the coupon; however, its value will drop down to the value of the amount
you are purchasing.

  • EXAMPLE:
    • A $5 coupon for a $4.99 item will result in a $4.99 coupon value.

Can I use multiple coupons within a transaction?

Yes, as long as all of the coupons meet their qualifications.

  • EXAMPLES:
    • Two $3 off $15 coupons for purchases that are $30.00 or higher.
    • $3 off $15 coupon and $5 ExtraBucks® Rewards for a purchase of $15.
    • $1 off toothpaste mfr. coupon and a $2 off toothpaste Coupon Center coupon for a $3 toothpaste item.

Can I use multiple coupons on sale items?

Yes, for certain coupons and certain sale items.

  • EXAMPLES:
    • Suave shampoo is on sale for $2.00 Buy One, Get One Free (BOGO) and thecustomer purchases two shampoos; the customer may use two coupons for $1.00 each and pay the applicable tax.
    • Suave shampoo is on sale for $2.00 BOGO and customer has a mfr. coupon for Suave BOGO. Customer will receive both items for free but will need to pay any applicable tax.

How do I determine the application of sales tax on my purchase that involves the use of a coupon?

Funded manufacturer’s/mfr’s coupons will generally calculate sales tax on the pre-coupon price of the item, as required by state law*. If the coupon is issued by CVS Pharmacy® (ExtraBucks Rewards plus ExtraSavings coupons that includes ExtraCare®Coupon Center and myWeekly Ad circulars), the coupon is generally deemed a retailer coupon and the sales tax is calculated on the discounted price of the item (after the coupon is applied), as required by state law. However, some CVS Pharmacy issued coupons are “funded manufacturer’s coupons” and designated as mfr. on the face of the coupon and also on your receipt. Sales tax is calculated on CVS Pharmacy issued mfr’s coupons on the pre-coupon priceof the item.
*Sales tax is calculated on the discounted price of the item (after the manufacturer’s coupon is applied) in the following states: CT, MA, MO, PA, TX

Can the processing order of multiple coupons that are applied to an item affect the calculation of sales tax?

Yes. Although CVS Pharmacy reserves the right to determine the processing order of its retailer coupons issued (including discounts earned via the ExtraSavings Programs and myWeekly Ad circulars), individual state tax laws govern the processing order of retailer coupons vs. funded manufacturer’s coupons.

Am I limited by how many items I can buy?

There is no set limit however, store managers do reserve the right to set discretionary limits on specific items being purchased in order to ensure there are enough of those items for other customers.

How am I able to use percent-off coupons?

Percent-off coupons may be used on non-promotional/non-sale items. Exclusions are displayed on each of the coupons.

How do I use digital ExtraCare coupons or ExtraCare coupons that have been sent to my card?

You are able to send available deals and coupons to your ExtraCare card from CVS.com®, the CVS Pharmacy mobile app, digital receipts and CVS Pharmacy email. Click on the Send-to-Card® icon and view the success indicator on the landing page to ensure it was loaded properly. To use it, purchase the necessary items the coupon is valid for and ensure your ExtraCare card is scanned. The colleague will ensure it is applied to that transaction during the checkout process.

7 Reasons to Sign Up for a Target REDcard

7 reasons to sign up for Target RedCard

I was checking out the Target.com clearance section several years ago and I came across a pair of sandals on clearance for $5, regularly $19.99! I immediately chose my shoe size, added to my cart and clicked on the checkout button. It turned out that there was a $50 minimum purchase to get free shipping or completely free with no minimum if I use a Target REDcard. (Note: Back then the minimum free shipping threshold was $50, it’s like $25-$35 now).READ MORE

Should I Coupon?

Skeptical about the whole couponing thing? I’ve been there so I totally understand.

Many people believe that couponing is time consuming and that it isn’t worth it in the end. Lies, all lies! Just kidding (sort of). It might be time consuming in the beginning because you have to learn something new, How to Coupon. Once you establish a routine, you’ll be able to coupon for as little as 1 hour a week!

But let me tell you a little secret:

You can make it work for YOU no matter how hectic your schedule may be, the types of foods and products you use (organic, gluten-free, all-natural, etc) or even if you are brand loyal.

Here are some things to consider if you want to start:

COSTS

  • SUNDAY NEWSPAPER – You can purchase these at Dollar Tree for $1 each. Better yet, subscribe to your local paper (Sunday only) and get it as low as $0.37 each delivered right to your doorstep! I recommend at least 2-4 Sunday paper.
  • GAS – You might drive to several stores per couponing trip.
  • OUT OF POCKET EXPENSE – There are 2 sure things in life: death and taxes. Getting stuff for free is fun but you still need to pay for tax.

TIME

  • COUPONING TRIP PREPARATION – You’ll want to look at store matchups, weekly ads, watch for sale cycles, make a shopping list and clip coupons (if you haven’t already). The beauty about the internet is that there are PLENTY of bloggers that do this work for you. I post weekly free and cheap matchups here. All you need to do is clip your coupons.
  • SHOPPING TIME – This will depend whether your store has all of the items in your list in stock otherwise you may need to make changes to your transaction plan. If all else fail, get a raincheck.

STORAGE SPACE

  • One of the key factors to couponing is stockpiling, which means you purchase items at a rock-bottom price in large quantities. For example, if toothpaste is free after coupons and store rewards you’ll want to purchase as many as you can (if store policy and coupon limit allow) to last your household until the next sale. You’ll probably need a linen closet (or two!) for your stockpile.

In the end, you can tailor couponing base on your needs and schedule. You decide whether you want to coupon casually or go extreme. Both ends of the couponing spectrum will save you money. The question that you should be asking yourself is: Am I willing to start?

Couponing Tip: Don’t Compare Yourself To Others

don't compare yourself to others

This pretty much applies to every aspect of our lives.  But first:

However, in the couponing world:

Different households have different needs. Just because your coupon buddy has a dedicated stockpile room doesn’t mean you should have the same. Sure, it looks awesome but always ask yourself if it’s really necessary for YOUR household.

I’ve coveted a dedicated stockpile + couponing room. But I realized, it wasn’t necessary for my household + lifestyle. I don’t want to become an extreme couponer and I don’t want to spend a lot of time couponing. In addition, having lots of stuff is overwhelming for me. I’d just stress or burn myself out trying to keep up with the Joneses.

You’ll eventually become aware of how many bottles of shampoo (or whatever it may be) your household really consumes in a period of time.

This is something I need to remind myself from time to time. I hope you keep this in mind, too.
