CVS April 2008 Monthly Freebie Deals

Posted by Lisa

There are many monthly deals, but I’ll only post the freebies. There are two:

CVS/pharmacy Pain Relief Rapid Release Gelcaps 24ct.
Buy one at $3.99 and get $3.99 back in ECB’s
Limit 5

Precision Xtra (I believe this is a glucose monitor)
Buy one at $19.99, and get $19.99 back in ECB’s
Limit 1

These deals last all month, even if the shelf stickers don’t let you know. Sometimes monthly deals are advertised in the weekly ads, and only have the shelf stickers up the week they’re in the ad.

Always keep your latest CVS receipt to make sure you don’t purchase a monthly deal when you’ve already met your monthly limit. I once overdid a toothpaste deal without realizing it and lost $15 in ECB’s. As soon as I purchased and saw the new receipt, lacking all the ECB’s I was anticipating, I attempted to return the toothpaste and that’s when I found out CVS doesn’t accept returns if you paid with ECB’s (otherwise people would cash in their ECB’s for money through returns). A painful lesson. I’ve learned not to fret over losses like that. I’ve rolled those ECB’s so many times and have been paid to take home so many products that I figure I can throw CVS a bone now and then. I chalk it up to the learning curve. Just keep and check those receipts!
