Where do you get the "beauty magazine"?

Zoelle said...

You will get $5 back in ECBs not $4 for the Skin Effects, so it will basically be free with $0.01 overage!!

Do most CVS stores take competitor coupons (such as those in the paper this week for Rite Aid)?

Beauty magazines are sold in the stores for 0.99. Some stores leave the coupons from inside in the pharmacy or photo counter area. Be on the lookout. Periodically, these are also found online but disappear fast so always save a PDF copy of what you find especially if the expiration date is far off.

This completely varies by store. None of mine do but many others have reported that their take competitor's coupons.

I just got the CVS 2/$10 from the magazine website.

Just wanted to let you know, I did the Children's Advil deal last week at CVS and used a $2/1 Advil coupon from a newspaper insert. (I don't know which one it was from, but I had two different coupons for the same amount.) The coupon scanned without a problem.

I have not done Walgreen's but twice now and probably won't go back. They would not take more than one RR until I got the manager, who also said they were not taking itnernet printable coupons. They did it for me this once but I was not happy with the service and lack of items listed in their weekly ad.
