CVS - Last week, this week

At the very end of last week I made a purchase. It was a special weekend for employees with the extra bonus savings! (30% off!) Friends & family were included in the deal if they got a special coupon from an employee. Each person received six hard copy coupons & was allowed to e-mail out three more. That was new this year. I am only sharing this as there are a few items I would have skipped if there had not been the additional discount. A few nice 'money makers' which I love!

No worries for non-employees. People should have received mailers/e-mails with a 20% off customer weekend coupons for this weekend. Another crazy weekend, but this time I'm not working it. (I hope . . . 'tis the season for falling ill.)

This week I was excited for the coke sale. We were running very low! Also was more than happy to receive the coupon for the $2.50 planters flavor grove. (Also pictured is the EOS free after EB from last week.) I managed to grab the last one on the shelf. If your store doesn't have it get a raincheck. Also ask if they are willing to raincheck the coupon. YMMV for that. One store I work at does and the other one doesn't.

  1. Okay, Taika, you have me hungry for those snow caps! I haven't seen those. I remember as a little girl I would save my money for the rare times we got to go to the movies and I'd get that type of candy. Thanks for the memories:-). And thanks for linking up your CVS shopping trip at Simply CVS.
