Extreme Couponing Tips at CVS
Guys, I have a confession. I am a CVS Extreme Couponer.
I’ve been keeping this money-saving skill a secret for a while, but, today, I’m ready to share my secrets. Read on for my tips and making the most of those insanely long coupon/receipts you get every time you go to CVS.
Download the CVS App!
So you got one of CVS’ notoriously long receipts and may have even clipped one of the coupons for a discount but, of course, you forget it when you get to the store. Never fear! The CVS app, once connected to our Extracare card, links all those personalized deals directly to your phone so you don’t have to keep those folded receipts with you at all times.
My biggest recommendation is to check out the app before you hit the store and see if the things you’re planning to buy already have a coupon. If you’re buying staples like toothpaste, toilet paper, or allergy medicine, there is almost ALWAYS a coupon on the app either via CVS or the manufacturer. All you need to do is add the coupon to your card and voila, savings!

If you keep your information current with CVS, you can expect to get a discount coupon in the mail at least once a month for 25% off your order, $6 off $20 or stuff like that. You’ll also get similar deals via email, which you can add directly to you card. Which leads me too…
The way to take saving to the next level at CVS is to combine those saved coupons with weekly CVS sales. Wait to cash in that coupon for Pronamel when it’s already on sale at the store (which is basically every other week) AND when you’ve got a Buy $20, Get $6 Off deal saved to your card. When you get that deal, don’t be afraid to double up on essentials. Whenever I see a deal on my favorite Nivea lotion or tampons, I tend to buy two so that I get the best deal and I’m never without a staple.
