CVS has there own kind of “cash” called Extra Care Bucks or ECBs. ECB are good for one month from the date you get them and work the same as cash through out the store. Some stores will accept expired ECBs but that is up to the store itself. You may want to ask the manager at your local store to find out for sure. The Ellwood City store will accept expired ECBs.
CVS will accept a manufacturers coupon and a CVS coupon on the same item, this is generally referred to as stacking coupons.
Even if an item is free after the ECBs you earn you can still use coupons on that item. Here is an example of combining ECBs, coupons, and a mail in rebate:
4.99 Tums Quik Paks
-2.25 manufacturer coupon
2.74 total to pay out of pocket
-4.99 Extra care bucks earned off your next purchase
-4.58 mail in rebate from manufacturer (I took out the cost of the stamp. The rebate is for $4.99)
-6.83 the total amount paid for Tums quik pak after rebates and coupons.
Walgreens uses a currancy similar to ECBs called Register Rewards or RRs. The Register Rewards are generally good for 2 weeks from the time they are received. They can be used in conjunction with manufacturer coupons and Walgreens coupons. More often than not you an not use Register Rewards to pay for the same item. For example, if you get a RR for buying Theraflu, if you use that RR to pay for another purchase of Theraflu a new RR will not print. IN other words Register Rewards will not roll.
Like CVS, at Walgreens you can use both a manufacturer coupon and a Walgreens coupon on each item.
Walgreens may or may not accept expired RRs, it will be up to each individual store to decide.
