CVS Three Day Sales ~ Sunday, Monday & Tuesday ~ Tips 'n Tricks Post

Often CVS has three day sales good for the first three days of the week.  They are often for free after extra buck items and other super sale prices.  There are a couple of things to remember about these sales.  They will not start early with the rest of the ad on Saturday nights.  Other extra buck deals will
print out fine Saturday nights at a CVS that generates the ads early (which is almost all) but these will not.  Also, many stores will not give rain checks for these items.  My store always has, but I have read many shoppers have been refused.  I have emailed CVS customer service to ask about this and will post when I receive an answer.  So keep your eyes on the ad and be sure to note if the sale is for a limited time.

Do you know what time on Saturday night the new ad starts? Does this vary by store?

Caryn, It is my understanding that it is 6:00 p.m. I was told by one manager they were told not to do it early and another manager said they do it as soon as they get the signs up--about 3:00. I also have read that 24 hour stores often do not start early. So, yes, it varies.

I had a dollar ecb, and bought a package of the .99 cent pens (buy a pack and get .99 ecb) Since it was under a dollar before tax, I had to buy a package of .50 cookies to get the ecb. I then took that ecb and bought the .99 scissors. I then owed .05 in tax. Not bad for two items...05! I'll do this again tomorrow.

Not bad at all. Deborah, the advertised limit is one each per card so you would need to use a different card. Unless the bottom of your receipt does not show limit reached. I haven't seen any "chatter" that the limit is raised, yet.

BTW, at my CVS they will change the $1 ecb to .99 manually so I don't have to buy something else--the register actually prompts them to do it.
