Weekend Haul – CVS and Publix

This past weekend was a great one for couponing! From brand-name household goods to stocking up on cheap summer snacks and drinks, I was able to save over $150 between CVS and Publix. Most of these deals are still valid, so make sure you gather your coupons and get saving! 

Here is a short list of things to remember when trying to replicate these deals:

  • Always check to see if the deal is still valid
  • Please remember that you may only print 2 of each coupon per device, unless otherwise stated
  • Always check your coupon expiration dates
  • You will need a CVS store card to get the in-store sale prices and store coupons
  • Check the list of store coupon policies posted on the Couponing 101 page
  • To maximize your savings at CVS, do multiple transactions and roll your ecbs received from qualifying products and sales
