Happy Friday: Are You a Famous CVS Shopper Too?

Sent from reader, Stephanie:

I recently received an email with the Subject title being “Your Claim to Fame? Saving!” The email was from CVS with my year end savings report. I shop at CVS weekly and always make my list using Hip2Save’s weekly ad match-ups.

I tend to have a fairly high percentage of savings each week when I look at my receipt, but I was quite surprised to learn from this email that I am in the top 1% of savers for CVS in my state of Florida. Hip2Save makes it so much easier for me to scout out the best deals at CVS each week and I couldn’t be more grateful to Collin and the entire Hip2Save team for all the hard work they do each week.

The subject of the email caught my attention and certainly made me stop and laugh. I may not be famous for anything else right now, but I guess my claim to fame is SAVING which is certainly something to be proud of!

HAPPY FRIDAY!

    Top 2% in MA! Love the deals at CVS.

    • Stephanie

      That’s wonderful Jennifer! Yes, CVS is certainly an awesome place to shop and score deals.

  10. Michelle

    I’m in the top 2% in Indiana… however I stopped shopping there for the most part after too many coupon issues… I have such a stash of stuff still that I still have awhile before I need to coupon again… lol

    • MissyV

      It definitely takes time and patience to plan these shopping trips. I try to make it every week so I can keep my inventory closet stocked lol

    • NolaGirl

      I’m with you Michelle. I used to love CVS, but I had major problems in the last year. I was done when they tried to give me only 1 cent off for a Coke Rewards freebie coupon.

  11. Sharon

    I only got $1.00 as my quarterly savings. So I am near the bottom I am sure! LOL

    • Yang

      Quite contrary, the less your quarterly reward is, the less oop you spent, which means the more you saved.

      • Laura

        Really??? I only got a dollar, too. I didn’t get an email, but I’m “famous” at my local store for my savings! 😁

  12. ds

    Thats awesome! I want to reach that goal

  13. Cara

    LoL, too cute. I’m famous at my store for being the person who can scope out a clearance tag from aisles away

  14. Mika

    I’m in the top 3% in my state. That’s going to change this year, because I’ve kind of stopped shopping there and slowed down on my couponing in general.

  15. Randee

    I am 1% in FL

  16. Cindy

    I’m top 1% in CT too! Thx to Hip2save. Clerks always ask me “do you plan these trips?” LOL

  17. Lydia

    I’m top 1% in Texas

  18. Me

    Hey, I thought I was doing pretty good, but I didn’t get any message to that effect, so I guess not! There must be a lot of couponers in my state!
