A Few Tips

·      ECB stands for Extra Care Bucks.  These are rewards that can be used like cash on future transactions.  You must register and receive a rewards card, and make sure that your cashier scans the card first before every transaction.  ECB will print out in the form of a coupon at the end of your transaction (you also receive a 2% bonus at the end of each quarter).  If you plan carefully, you can use ECB from one transaction to entirely pay for your next transaction.  I normally buy all my products that will give me ECB first and then come back for another transaction later and pay with the ECB from the first transaction.  Please note that you cannot have more coupons than items, so plan accordingly or buy cheap “fillers” like chewing gum or individual toilet paper rolls.

·         The “Final Price” in this listing takes the ECB discount, even though you will not be using it during that transaction.  It reflects the net price of that item.

         Most printable coupon sites will require that you download a “coupon printer” the first time you use them.  This is a safe download that simply tracks how many times you’ve printed.  Most coupons will allow you to print two copies (this is usually done by hitting the Back button on your browser and refreshing the page after the first copy prints).  If you have more than one computer in your house, it can sometimes be advantageous to print two copies on each computer.

         Remember that you can repeat a deal depending on how many coupons you have unless there is a limit on the number of items you can purchase.  For example, Wheat thins for $0.99 and you know of a $1 off printable coupon – if you have 3 computers in your house, you could print 6 coupons and buy 6 boxes for free!  BUT, CVS may have a restriction on the number of boxes you can buy at the $0.99 price, so be sure to look before you checkout.  Most ECB deals are a limit of one.

         There are many more deals posted on larger sites such as Hip2Save  or A Full Cup, these are just a sampling of what I think are the best deals available.

·           Also remember that you can “stack” coupons when you have more than one type.  This means if you have a CVS coupon, you can ALSO use a manufacturer’s coupon.  And, to avoid problems, always present your coupons in this order to the cashier: money off store coupons (ex. $4 off $20 purchase), CVS store coupons, manufacturer coupons, then Extra Care Bucks.

Thanks ya'll!
