Great CVS Deals Coming - Week of 8/2

August 2 may seem far-off right now, but it will be here before you know it! And you can be prepared to get some fabulous deals at CVS that week.... if you start planning now.

Saving with Shellie posted two freebies, Stayfree pads and Blink tears or Gel tears. Here's how those two deals work:

Stayfree pads (28-48 count) will be $5.00 each
Pair that with the Buy 1 - Get 1 FREE coupon from the 6/28 SmartSource insert
Out-of-Pocket: $5.00
ECBs Earned: $5.00 when you buy $10.00 (limit 1)
Final Price: FREE

Shellie is planning to also use the $1.00 off Stayfree printable coupon HERE. Some stores do allow you to use two coupons because you're buying two items. If you are allowed to use both coupons (Buy 1 - Get 1 along with the $1.00 off), then this will become a $1.00 money-maker.

Blink Tears
Blink Tears will be $7.99 each
Use the $1.50 off printable coupon HERE
Out-of-Pocket: $6.49
ECBs Earned: $7.99
Final Price: Free plus $1.50 money-maker

There was also a $4.00 off Blink coupon in the 5/31 Red Plum insert. However, it expires on 8/1. If your store allows you to get the Sunday deals on Saturday night, then you could make $4.00 on the Blink deal.

Hip2Save also posted a great deal on Electrasol at CVS during the week of 8/2.
Electrasol (20 count) boxes will be 2 for $9.00
Buy 5 boxes ($22.50)
Use 5 $2.50 off coupon from the 7/12 SmartSource insert* (-$12.50)
Out-of-Pocket: $10.00
ECBs Earned: $10.00 when you buy $20.00 of Electrasol
Final Price: All 5 FREE

*Note: I only buy 2 newspapers, but I'd like to do this deal. So I headed over to eBay to buy some of the $2.50 off coupons. This is my first eBay coupon purchase, and I must admit that it was pretty smooth. I ordered the coupons 3 days ago, and they were in my mailbox today.

Since these deals aren't for a couple of weeks, you have a little bit of time to gather/print your coupons. Just don't wait too long for the printables. Sometimes offers reach their print limits pretty quickly, especially when people know these good deals are coming!
