In 1964, the first Consumer Value Store (CVS) opened in Lowell, Mass. Since that time, the drugstore has grown to 7,000 locations throughout the nation. Couponers shop CVS because it is considered coupon friendly, has a strong reward card program and offers store coupons that can be stacked with manufacturer coupons. But, as with everything in couponing, you have to understand everything the store has to offer before you can get the best deals.
The ExtraCare Rewards Program
The key to savings at CVS is the CVS ExtraCare rewards card, which will celebrate 10 years in 2011. In order to participate, you have to register for a card in the store or online. ExtraCare members also receive special offers and coupons in the mail and email. When you sign up for emails, you will receive a $4 off $20 CVS coupon, that can be used with other CVS and manufacturer coupons. So, in order to take full advantage, you should register your card and email at CVS.com.
ExtraCare Bucks (ECB's)
The main component of the ExtraCare Rewards card is the ExtraCare Bucks. I’ve never met anyone who didn’t like one buck, so extra bucks is certainly something to love. It’s all in how you spread the ECB love.
ECB’s print at the bottom of your receipt and there are three ways to receive them.
If a sale item is out of stock, then ask for a rain check. At CVS, the rain checks do not expire and you will still receive the ECB.
Last month, CVS finally released an official coupon policy. The entire coupon policy is online here but some key points are that CVS:
CVS offers store coupons that can be printed from their website, from email offers, from the Reinventing Beauty magazine that is purchased in the store and from the CVS Kiosk.
This week, register for an ExtraCare reward card and purchase a Green Bag Tag. Next week, I’ll have part two of shopping at CVS. If you want to go ahead and shop a few deals, look at the weekly match ups on www.southernsavers.com or www.hip2save.com. There are also CVS exclusive blogs at www.simplycvsshopping.com and www.iheartcvs.com.

WEDNESDAY’S LIST . . . of beans ’n greens ’n other things:
DON’T TELL me I’ve nothing to do.
From the window of my barn I see Ozzie coming through the hedgerow from next door. I like Ozzie a lot, but I’m not sure he feels the same. Efforts to pet and feed over the years have been a flop at best.
What Ozzie likes to do is hunt. I mean really hunt.
You see, Ozzie is a brindle, bob-tailed, three-legged cat and he loves to feed on whatever he can find in the hedgerow across my back yard, including field mice and squirrels.
Ozzie is flat out deadly, too.
Since losing his right front leg to a tumor a couple of years back, he has taught himself a new way to hunt. He keeps stalking to a minimum. But with the patience of Job, he settles down and waits for a meal to come within striking distance.
When the meal does, it’s “Wham” and Ozzie heads for the dinner table.
He’s a wonder to watch ...
IT IS A typical day at the Smith Estate. I am out in my barn kicked back in what I call “Archie’s Recliner.” I am reading a book, listening to Merle Haggard on the stereo, and watching TV (how’s that for multi-tasking, huh?) The blonde is out and about.
The phone rings. It is from the blonde. She is at Sears in the Quintard Mall ...
“Sweetheart, I’m at Sears looking at vacuum cleaners. I can get a small one to go with a regular one. What do you think I should do?”
Recovering from the shock of her asking my permission for anything, I agree to the double dip and then make a mistake with “What’s going on, you asking my permission?”
From the other end, there is a happy laugh with:
“It’d be different if it were shoes and a dress.”
I managed a quiet goodbye (without choking), hung up, and went back to singing along with Merle. It seemed fitting he was in the middle of “I’m Gonna Sit Right Here And Drink” at the time.
JOE ESTEP deserves a standing ovation. Joe runs the Calhoun County Sports Hall of Fame and, this past Saturday night, put together another classic.
Held at the “new” Oxford Civic Center, the 2013 induction played to a near packed house.
Outstanding Joe, outstanding.
FOR THOSE asking, the Peach Man’s tomatoes are a week away, but Ken Easterling will be at Regions in Oxford on Friday morning at 6 with another load of Chilton County peaches.
If no sell-out in Oxford he heads for the Anniston post office along about 8 . . . but don’t bet he gets there.
IF YOU’RE lining up at the Walmart deli at Lenlock, I hope you get lucky and a young lady by the name of Vanesa Durham waits on you. She did for me a few days back and while I’ve had an unpleasant moment or two there, Vanesa left me feeling pretty good.
Walmart could use more like her.
BIRTHDAYS: June 12 – Annette Vice; June 14 – Sage Snow; June 15 – Twins Brettnie and Dakota Smith; June 17 – Aiden Lloyd; 11; June 18 – Don Beabout.
And Jeff Jones, June 17. A member of a vanishing breed (The Great Generation), Jeff drove a “weasel” jeep ashore at Normandy, June 6, 1944.
QUOTABLE: “My doctor tells me I should start slowing it down - but there are more old drunks than there are old doctors so let's all have another round.”
