Quick Trip to CVS

Saturday, January 03, 2009 Posted In Edit This 0 Comments »

This was meant to be a quick trip, but it took about an hour. I guess that is still quick for me. Had to do some rethinking as usual since they didn't have enough Throat Coolers for my original plan.
Oh and tonight I got an employee that knows what customer service is all about. Stephanie was a breath of fresh air at the Dover store.

Important Information on Glucerna Coupon

Friday, January 02, 2009 Edit This 0 Comments »
CVS is having a promotion on Abbott products; Buy $20 get $5 ECBs. I have read a blog and some forums about this being a MM by using two Glucerna IPs. There is a slight problem with this, I'm sorry to report.

The Glucerna coupon is limited one per household even though it prints twice. I emailed Abbott and asked about the printing limit and wording on the coupon and they confirmed it is only meant to be one coupon per household. I really wanted permission to use both, but it is a no go.

On a positive note the Ensure website will let you print $3 and $1.85 coupons twice. It won't be a MM, but if you use those products it would be a very good deal. If you have any $/$$ even better.
