CVS Thanksgiving Sale Preview

November 25, 2008 by Lulu in CVS with 4 Comments


Thanksgiving is quickly approaching and that means TONS of FREE stuff at CVS. I got to preview the ad on another site and I made my little ‘want’ list in Google documents.

There are 13 items that will be totally free after extra bucks and that is great if you have some ECBs that you can use. If you can combine those items with coupons then it is even better because it means your ECBs will stretch even further.

I am waiting on the coupons from this Sunday’s paper to get here so I can see if any of them apply to the FREE items.

The item that is at the top of my list is L’Oreal Color Juice Sheer lip gloss. I use this all the time since it is favorite lip gloss ever. It costs $6.99 and gives back $6.99 in extra bucks and there is a limit of 2. I will buy one in one transaction using my CVS gift card (that I got by cashing in my rewards from MyPoints) and then use the extra bucks it gives to get the second one FREE.

I am so excited about all the free stuff at CVS for thanksgiving and I can’t wait. I just hope that the store is not crowded when I go and that I can get the things I want.

Will you go shopping for Thanksgiving deals this year?

    I don’t know how to get free stuff at CVS…. are you just talking about coupons in the flyers? What are and where do you get these ECBs? Sounds good!

    I have not seen the ads yet for CVS but have heard they are really good. I just got a coupon this morning for $5 off $30 purchase, so I can’t wait!!! Good Luck!

    @ Money Energy
    First you have to sign up with CVS for an Extra Bucks card. They have temporary ones in the store so you can do it right away.

    Then you have to scan your card or enter your number before you scan your purchases. Some items give back extra bucks that you can then use to pay for other purchases.

    Like the L”Oreal lip gloss costs $6.99 and gives that amount back. So instead of buying two lipglosses and paying CVS $13.98 plus tax, I would buy one lip gloss and pay $6.99 plus tax. Then take the extra bucks that print on my receipt and use that to pay for the second lip gloss…paying only the tax on that one.

    To get stuff for free you have to actually build up a stock of extra bucks. But once you get the first extra bucks receipt, you use that to pay for the next purchase and so on.
