Free at CVS Thanksgiving Deals

It has been a while, since I have been CVS shopping. It has been even longer, since I have done a big CVS Extra Bucks shopping trip though, because the deals have been scarce. Even more so, it seemed like more trouble than benefit to go there only to discover that they were out of whatever I came for. Today I finally made the decision to go and take advantage of the Free at CVS Thanksgiving deals, but I knew that I had to do it early today, before the deals were gone.

I went in with my potential free at CVS list and a few coupons, and then I just kept my fingers crossed that they actually had something in stock. The CVS cashier was very helpful, and she found the Command and the Children’s Advil behind the register. I skipped a lot of the free after CVS bucks deals though, simply because I my family did not have a need for the items.

I divided my CVS shopping trip into 4 transaction to spend the least amount out of pocket. This is why, I never go to CVS without my calculator. The below deals are valid from 11/18 – 11/24.

There were a lot more free at CVS deals after Extra Bucks, but I decided to be conservative about what we would actually use. I am happy that I received more CVS Extra Bucks than I actually spent, and I am hoping to be able to find some great deals to use my CVS Extra Bucks.

  1. I did what you did, only got what we really needed. I did 2 transactions, only did the Freebie items in my 1st transaction, then used my bucks to buy some much needed pediacare cold medicine and cortizone cream, the deals i thought were ok and only got what we needed and was able to use those ECB to help with what we needed that didn’t have any ecb or sale pricing 🙂 I am hoping to get back on wed again to use my grandmother’s card for a few things such as the TP, fruit snacks, coke and thermacare wrap.
