ENDED: Simply CVS Giveaway ~ CSN Store $40 E - Gift Certificate Ends 12/14 @ Noon Eastern

A CSN store representative contacted me and let me know it is time for another giveaway here at Simply CVS for a $40 E Gift Certificate good at any of their 200 online stores.  I want to be sure and keep the focus at Simply CVS on CVS shopping and CVS deals and things that can enrich those experiences so I am careful about giveaways I will sponsor.
Their inventory is amazing.  I am really wishing for new bar stools for my kitchen counter.  I took a tour of their site AllBarstools and found a stool that would
match my country kitchen nicely.  The Windsor back of the Windsor Swivel Counter Stool matches the chairs at my table.  For now I will keep dreaming, but now I have a picture to go with my dream.
I know CVS shoppers love to get things for "free," or nearly free, so I knew there would be an interest and I thought we could think of the Gift Certificate as a one time extra buck for use at CSN stores.  Upon seeing their inventory, which includes thousands of items I just knew I could find something at CSN Stores that would enhance our CVS shopping experience, and I did.

How about a reusable shopping bag to attach to your CVS green bag tag?  CSN Stores have a large selection of shopping totes.  Here are a few I found (click on the pictures to see details at CSN).

Armor Bags Reusable Large Shopping Bags      Logo Chairs Collegiate Reversible Tote - Ohio State  My Favorites!

Winn International Microfiber Ladies' Shopping Tote Bag in Black - 7771

The winner of the giveaway can choose anything from any of the 200 CSN Stores that they would like to spend the $40 gift certificate on, they don't have to choose a shopping bag.  And please note that there may be shipping charges not covered by the certificate.

This was my first year couponing on Black Friday. I had a blast at CVS Thursday morning picking up all the deals. I even met some other couponers in my area!

Tammigirl said...

I just took one of my prescriptions to CVS and got a $26 gift card for making the transfer! I know, right? I also took advantage of Dayquil/Aleve sinus medicines on that trip and saved with a $5 coupon that printed at the door.

I also have a special CVS tag which gives me 20% off any CVS brand product. Love CVS - especially with your help.

I think my favorite so far was the nail polish - they paid ME to take home six bottles of Revlon nail polish! That was awesome!

I have a lot of rain checks from Black Friday, so I haven't really had my black friday shopping trip yet! :)

Most recently, I bought 2 of the Oral-B toothbrushes and spent $7 and saved about $60! :)

I don't have any one "great deal" at CVS - it is always great thought to have Extra bucks and be able to get something you need "free"!

I made out like a bandit on Black Friday. I had a whole bag of stuff for 13.72 (originally it should have been 55.23. My mother in law did even better than I, but I was so tired and ready to head home.

My favorite CVS deal was during Christmas clearance several years ago. I found a Back to Basics Egg and Muffin toaster for under $8.00; retail was close to $50 at the time. This thing has made breakfast quick any easy many mornings since.

i just got a great deal on the fuzzy animals. walked out with 4 plus a couple of other things and payed nothing, using ecbs and coupons. plus had 4 new ecbs to go with it. I plan on giving the 4 little animals to my mom who works with ESL students in TN. I am always on the lookout for little things I can pick up for next to nothing to help fill her goodie bags and give aways for the families.

Infohound said...

Black Friday or Thursday that is. I was the first one there. I expected a small crowd. No one. I was already through my 3rd transaction before the next customer came in. I got all the deals and the cashiers were super nice. I like CVS because of their people. Wish they had more great deals more often.

Elsa said...

The sobe b1g1 was definitely my favorite deal to date. I got 96 sobes for FREE I didn't even have to pay tax!

I loved the zhuzhu pets last week, with the buy 1-1 free in store deal and the CVS coupon to print buying 2 get one free, I got 4 for less then a dollar, I also used a ECB to pay since I have many to use since the Thanksgiving deals. So that is almost $40 worth of zhuzhu pets for under a dollar. Can't beat it.

jan said...
