If you’re new to couponing, here are a couple CVS deal scenarios for this week to help you get started (not too exciting)…

Transaction #1:

Buy 1 Blink tears 0.5 oz or gel tears 0.34 oz $7.99 = $7.99 Ecb (limit 1)
Buy 2 Dove Men+Care antiperspirant or deodorant 2.7-3 oz $0.99
Total = $9.97
Use the $1/1 Blink Tears coupon found in the 4/3 SS **Keep an eye out for $4 peelie coupons found on the Blink product for an even sweeter deal!
Use 2 $1/1 Dove coupons found here no prints left! 😦 or in the 3/27 RP (Exp. 4/24!)

Pay $6.97 out of pocket
Get back a $7.99 Ecb (from the Blink Tears)

Transaction #2:

Buy 1 Finesse shampoo, conditioner 13-13.5 oz $2.50
Buy 2 Schick Hydro 3 razors $8.99 (online price) Buy 1 get 1 Free
Buy 4 Clean & Clear Body Washes $4.99 (based on previous week’s sale price)
Total = $31.45
Use the $1/1 Finesse coupon found in the May issue of All You mag
Use 2 $3/1 Schick coupons found here
(Must “like” on Facebook, then click on the “Have a Blast” tab, then scroll down to click on “Get Coupons)
Use 2 Buy 1 get 1 Free Clean & Clear body wash coupons found in the 3/27 SS
Plus, use 2 $2/1 Clean & Clear coupons found here

Total $10.47
Use $7.99 Blink Ecb from Transaction #1
Pay $2.48 plus tax out of pocket
Get back a $5 Ecb (for the Clean & Clear)
Submit for the $2 Finesse rebate found here

Final Cost:

In the end, you’ll have paid a total of $9.45 out of pocket for both transactions… BUT you’ll walk out with a $5 Ecb to use next time AND you’ll get back a $2 mail-in rebate from Finesse! 🙂

  • HIP List
  • Print

Have you ever had moments when you're either out of time or out of printer ink, or both, and you really want to keep track of a "Hip" deal or print a valuable coupon in the next day or two? Or what do you do when an outstanding, but pricey, deal is posted and you want to save it for discussion with your significant other? Well, now you're in luck! No more searching through pages of posts to find the coupon or the deal. Simply move the post to your Hip List and access it at your convenience.

How Does the Hip List Work?

It's easy! To use this feature, first head on over here and register and log into your account. Whenever you find a great deal that you want to come back to later at a later time, just click on the HIP List icon located on each post (see images below) and the information will be saved in your account. To remove a post from your HIP List, just click on the HIP List icon and it will be removed.

When logged into your account, you will see the HIP List icon at the bottom of every post if you are viewing in classic view.

If you prefer to view in river view, you will see the HIP List icon located on every post above the post title and to the right.

If you're wanting to print a certain deal, blog post, or the Weekly Store Matchups from your HIP list, click on the small blue printer icon in the upper right corner of the HIP list. This will allow you to customize the information that you want or don't want to include when printing from your HIP list so you're only printing the information that's most important to you! If there are deals (or portions of deals) that you are not interested in printing, just click on the red x button to remove them. To restore a section, click on the green arrow icon in the upper right hand corner.
