CVS and Extra Care Bucks

A lot of people have been asking me lately what ECBs are. The best site that I can forward on is: http://www.moneysavingmom.com/money_saving_mom/2008/03/cvs-101.html

ECBs are part of a program that CVS does. For some items, if you buy it they give you a coupon (Extra Care Bucks/ECBs) good towards your next purchase. If you pair the sales up with coupons from the Sunday paper and/or online, and receive ECBs back, it makes for cheap or free staple items in your household (like toothpaste, laundry detergent, shampoo, etc.). One of the tricks that I’ve learned is that you can’t be really picky about brands, it works best if you can stock up on whatever is on sale and/or free that week.
