How to Coupon Shop at CVS

CVS

CVS was the first of these stores to announce their Black Friday Deals and boy are they good! Many of the items are sample size which makes them great for stocking stuffers. There are a few things you need to know to be able to get all of this free stuff. First, get a CVS loyalty card. CVS has a promotional system called Extra Care Bucks. These are coupons that are printed on the end of your receipt when you buy one of their advertised specials. You can use Extra Care Bucks towards buying anything you want. If you watch the video on how to shop at CVS, you will learn how you can do multiple transactions to use those Extra Care Bucks immediately.


For an example, here is a list of the specials CVS is advertising. For up to the minute information, check out the blogs above by clicking on the links. If you collect coupons, they will also show you which coupons to use on these deals so you can turn something from free into a "moneymaker." A moneymaker means you actually get paid to take something out of the store!

How to Shop at Walgreens

Walgreens

Walgreens has a huge list of free items for Black Friday including free wine! Most of the promotional products you buy will generate something called a Register Reward. Essentially that means, you pay for the product and then get your money back in the form of a coupon that can be used on a future purchase. You can use those coupons immediately on your next purchase. It helps to buy things in multiple transactions (calling rolling transactions) in order to pay less money out of pocket. I recommend watching a video on how to shop at Walgreens before you go there because it will teach you the process of rolling transactions and how to use the Register Rewards. Don't get scared off. It's easy once you see it demonstrated for you. One of the nicest things about shopping at Walgreens is that you don't need a loyalty card.

How to Shop at Rite Aid

Rite Aid

At this point, it looks like the Black Friday Deals at Rite Aid are not as exciting as the other stores. That being said, it pays to learn how to shop at Rite Aid because they have some amazing deals. The loyalty system they use is called UP+ Rewards. The first step is to sign up for a Wellness + card with the link below. When you buy things that have special promotions, UP+ Rewards print out on your receipt. They can be used towards a future purchase. Watch the video on the right to get the details. Click on the links below for updated deal information. It would be best to check a few days before Black Friday.

Black Friday Results

A trip to CVS and Walgreens to take advantage of the Black Friday deals resulted in $300.21 of product. The best part is that instead of paying for this product, I actually made $5.57. These are items we use every day like Advil, Theraflu, Kleenex, Toothpaste, Toothbrushes, Razors, Batteries, Dishwashing Detergent, Wrapping paper and so much more. I also have tons of great stocking stuffers for my family.

I don't like the term "Black Friday" but I guess the deals compensate for that. Wish we would have more of those her in Jamaica.

You did a great job of putting all this together. I would not have thought to go to these stores, but I usually stay home on that day.

Thanks homesteadbound. I think Black Friday is totally overwhelming so I thought this would be a fun way to take part without all the stress. Hopefully everyone else will be at the mall!

This is terrific and looks like it probably is a lot of fun. I avoid "Black Friday" shopping, but I am definitely going to do this next year.

A lot of the toiletry items would be great to send back with college students after winter break. I am bookmarking this, and hopefully I will get back to you next November in this comment section to let you know how I did.

It was a lot of fun and definitely better than being with the rest of the world at all the big huge sales. There were so many good items to send back with college students. Everything in the picture above was free. Thanks for stopping by.
