1 Oz. Aveenos Now Giving Extra Bucks

There has been much discussion about the buy two Aveeno get $7 extra buck deal which shows in the ad .5 oz and above.  Some shoppers were getting the 1 oz. trial size @ $1.49 each and the extra bucks were not printing but many stores were printing them anyways. Then shoppers were calling 800shopcvs whose didn't print and the stores wouldn't print them and corporate was issuing the extra bucks from there.  Now it is reported that they are now printing on the 1 oz. tubes and if for some reason they don't the shoppers are just calling 800shopcvs and letting them know and they are issuing them from there. So if you got them earlier in the week--call customer service and they will take of getting you your $7 extra bucks.  If you haven't done the Aveeno yet this week, you may want to pick these up.  I'm hoping to get back out this week and pick some up.  Remember, get a rain check if they are out.  And I would advise cutting the deal from the ad and attaching it to the rain check.

ugh! i just returned mine yesterday.... do you think I can repurchase them and get the xtrabucks? The xtrabucks didn't print the first time. They issued me a gift card since I paid with a gift card.

Thanks for the heads up, as I was waiting to head out for my CVS trip and I was wondering if this deal was going to work. I hear alot of commments that it was not working and I am happy to hear it will.
Your so awesome!

Eli, they should no problem. Just look at the bottom of your receipt from yesterday to be sure it doesn't say your limit was reached--tho since it didn't print it shouldn't.

Great timing for you, Tiffany. Many are reporting it is printing--and many are saying when they called about buying them earlier in the week and not getting them they are now issuing them for them, so you should be good to go.

I went to my store today and the sign saying it was a misprint was still up and all the trial size lotions were gone.

Just curious but anyone know that if the cashier had to push through manually to get the $7 ECB on the travel size Aveeno lotions, if that would mean that I didn't reach the limit 1 purchase for this deal on my card especially if it wasn't reflected on the receipt? I tried the deal on Sunday and it didn't print out for me so after talking with the manager, they had to push it through to generate for me separately.

Anon, it shouldn't have. Check the bottom of your receipt. The forced ones are not recorded on your card as far as I know.

I had such a big shopping trip I didn't want to hassle if they didn't print on Sunday (they were out of the next size up).

I'm glad I saw this and popped in yesterday and grabbed the only 2 left in the small size. Got lucky! Thanks Cheryl! :-)
