CVS: Freebies & Cheapies 6/26-7/2



Latest News

Make sure you’re getting the most bang for your ExtraCare Bucks at CVS by checking out my post: 15 Secret Ways to Save More at CVS.  It’s chock-full of great information.

There are new total purchase ($3/$15, $5/$25, $6/$30) and % off coupons again this week!  If you haven’t, check your email for one from CVS on Thursday!

  Let me know what Big Red coupons you receive and I’ll add them to the matchups! 


General Information

This list is printable!

Here are some easy use notes for you.

You’ll see a check box next to the sale item.  You can check that box and it will add it to your printable list box in the bottom right corner of your screen.  When you’ve added all the items you want to buy to the list, you can click on the *My List* tab to print them.

CVS has also released a new corporate coupon policy.  Make sure you print a copy and take it with you when you shop.  If this is new to you, you can read more about the changes to Buy One Get One Free sales and coupons HERE. 

Keep in mind that CVS ads can be extremely regional.  You may find price variations in the sale items or they may not be on sale in your area at all.

I am now ONLY using online prices in my match-ups. I had been using my actual store prices, but that proved equally frustrating for many people. While I realize that online prices are also frustrating, they’re relatively accurate for some. Since they’re about the same in that regard, it’s easier to use online prices! For new items not yet in their online store, I will continue to use my store prices.

This list includes all the items under $1, most of the ECB deals and many, MANY more.  Because I’m still doing most of the ad,  every link isn’t tested, as I don’t buy everything that’s on sale and I’m too cheap to waste the ink. Let me know if one doesn’t work, if my math has taken a nose dive or I’ve missed a coupon somewhere.

Easy Cucumber Salsa





The recipe is a new spin on an old favorite – salsa.  Plus, it takes advantage of that huge crop of cucumbers we’ll be seeing in late July.  I love Cucumber Salsa – maybe more than regular salsa.  It’s the hint of lime, I think.  It gives it a little taste of something different.  It’s cool, refreshing, and (of course) nut-free, too.


Garden Fresh Cucumber Salsa (Nut-Free)


  • 2 cucumbers, chopped, seeded, and peeled
  • 1 tomato, chopped (seed if you like)
  • 1/4 of a medium red onion, finely chopped
  • 1/2 green pepper, chopped
  • 2 tablespoons fresh parsley, minced
  • 1 tablespoon fresh cilantro, minced
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice
  • 1 tablespoon lime juice
  • 1/4 cup sour cream
  • 1/2 tsp cumin
  • Lime Flavored Tortilla Chips


  1. Combine all ingredients except chips  in a medium size bowl.  Refrigerate one hour.  Serve with chips.


Disney Princess or Frozen Waffle Maker $5.97 + FREE In Store Pickup! (reg. $14.96)

Disney Princess Waffle Maker $5.97 + FREE In Store Pickup

Early Sunday morning is a special time in our house.  My husband is home, so he can play with the baby while I make a little bit more extravagant breakfast than cereal.  I’ll make things like cinnamon roll, pumpkin, or banana pancakes, bacon, and eggs.  Sometimes I make homemade waffles with whipped cream and fresh strawberries.  It’s like having strawberry shortcake for breakfast.   The kids love it.   And this?  I know this’ll put big smiles on a certain 7 year old girl’s face and, soon, a tiny princess in training.

Walmart has two different Waffle Makers, Disney Princess or Frozen,  clearance priced at $5.97 (reg. $14.96) with free in store pickup or free shipping with a $50 purchase.  Goodness, this price is so good.  I’m picking up an extra one to give as a gift.
