UPDATE: This post has been totally updated from this mornings post (if you happened to read it). I totally misread the promotion in the CVS circular this morning. The below post is now accurate.
At CVS stores this week, if you purchase $30 worth of participating items, you can receive a free $10 gift card. You get to select one of the following for your free gift card: CVS, American Express, iTunes, Darden Restaurant, or Macy’s.
Now, this promotion is really only worthwhile if you actually need $30 of the participating items. However, there is a way to pay a lot less for the merchandise and still get the free $10 gift card. The $30 total required is pre-coupons. So if you have coupons for any of the items it will make your out of pocket cost much less. To find coupons, you can check the Sunday paper and coupons.com. With coupons.com you can print out two coupons per item per computer.
Popular participating items include:
- Tide detergent – there is a $2 off coupon for this in Sunday paper; there is a $1 off coupon at www.cvs.com/tide; there is a $2 off two at coupons.com
- Bounty select a size paper towels – there is a $0.25 off coupon in the Sunday paper
- Charmin toilet paper – there is a $0.25 off coupon in the Sunday paper; there is a $0.35 off coupon at coupons.com; there is a $0.25 coupon at coupons.com
- Herbal Essence shampoo and conditioner – there is a $1 off coupon at coupons.com
- Duracell batteries
- Gillette disposable razors – $3 off coupon in the Sunday paper; there is a $1 off coupon at coupons.com
- ALL liquid detergent
- Snuggles detergent
There are other participating items as well, but I thought the above are more common household items. You can check out the entire circular here. If done right, you can probably spend about $15, get the $30 worth of products and the $10 gift card of your choice.
The gift card promotion is limited to one per ExtraBucks account, but if you have multiple cards you can maximize your free CVS gift card earnings! Enjoy!
Darden Restaurants include: Olive Garden, LongHorn Steakhouse, Bahama Breeze, Seasons 52, The Capital Grill, Eddie V’s, and Yard House.
