Use this $5/20 CVS coupon and $5/$30 CVS coupon to stretch your dollars.

hi guys< i was wondering where do u get the john frieda coupons from. i can only find $1/1 ones that i can buy.



2 Jennifer November 8, 2009 at 3:04 pm

I just got back from CVS: I scanned my card in the coupon machine and out came a coupon for $5 or $15- so i thought well maybe this is my coupon from just registering my card (about a month ago). So i get all my stuff together to make a good deal. While i'm in line the 3 people in front of me get the same coupon with their receipts... it is only good for 3 days, hope everyone else gets one too :)


3 Bianca November 8, 2009 at 10:36 pm

I didn't get the $5/2 John Frieda coupon either... :(


4 eymclueles November 9, 2009 at 6:49 am

I looked through both of my SS 10/11/09 (we have a local paper and a metro paper that sometimes have different coupons) and didn't find the John Frieda coupons anywhere. :(


5 Katie November 9, 2009 at 8:56 am

Jennifer, what do you mean you scanned your card in the coupon machine? Is that at a self check out? At CVS, I just give my card to the cashier.


6 Becky November 9, 2009 at 3:04 pm


Many CVS's now have a scanner near the door with a red light on top that you can use to check an item's price or scan your card to print coupons. These are in addition to any coupons you get when you have them scan it at the register. Unfortunately, the ones at the 2 CVS's I usually go to are down about half the time.

While it's pretty slow, in our area 12 packs of Coke are 4/$12. Pair this with the Nova Max and a $5/20 coupon, and you get the coke for 4/$7 plus the tax from the $9.99 Nova Max (MI is 6%tax, so for me it will be 4/$7.60 plus deposit)


7 Jennifer November 9, 2009 at 3:15 pm

Katie- I did scan my card at the price checker/coupon printer. That is where it gave me a $5 off $15 ... am I the only one who got one? I dont think its my coupon for being new to CVS, i got that in an email today ($4 of $20)


8 norma November 9, 2009 at 4:23 pm

I went to CVS and 2 employees said there is no Extra care bucks deal for John Frieda products. They also showed me the in-store ad and there is nowhere where it says that. It only shows a sales price for 2 for $10. the caption above where it says spend $10, get $5 ECBs applies to other items John Frieda not included. can someone please tell me where to look? I believe that was last weeks deal.


9 Erica November 9, 2009 at 7:11 pm

Norma, I had the same problem with the John Frieda. I actually bought the items and did not get the ECBs.


10 Tara Kuczykowski November 9, 2009 at 7:29 pm

The John Frieda offer is from the Season To Save booklet. I believe this should be in effect everywhere.


11 norma November 9, 2009 at 7:37 pm

Tara - so without the coupon, you cannot get the deal?


12 Laura November 9, 2009 at 9:45 pm

I've read many places that the ECBs in the Season To Save booklet were meant to begin on 11/15. Since CVS neglected to put this on the booklet, stores are manually printing the ECBs this week. I'm assuming you have to bring a copy of the Season To Save booklet with you in order to show your cashier the deal before they will print them for you, or simply wait until Sunday and they should be printing automatically then.


13 Tara Kuczykowski November 9, 2009 at 10:03 pm

Thanks -- that's very helpful to know, Laura!


14 Katie November 10, 2009 at 12:47 pm

We don't have price scanners in any of the CVS's I go to. :( I'm glad y'all said something about it though, so I can check at other CVS's, we have one on almost every busy intersection.
The cashier gave me the Season To Save book yesterday and I saw the john frieda ECB promo in it. there is also a card in the middle of the book that you can have scanned when you make a $20 purchase and it will give you $4 ECB.


15 Scott November 11, 2009 at 1:53 pm

Where do you get the KY lube for 15.99? At my store, it's at least 19.99, and one of them is 29.99. That's a lot of money for lube!


16 Scott November 11, 2009 at 1:53 pm

Anyone find out which KY lube jelly is only 15.99? Thanks!


17 Scott November 12, 2009 at 2:45 am

Any lube tips yet? The lube for women , Intense, looks nice, but it's $29.99!


18 Jennifer November 13, 2009 at 10:08 am

Scott...I'm in Texas (NorthEast Houston) and at my CVS it's 19.99...I got the Yours + Mine and the ear cleaning stuff...Had the $5 off $15 coupon and $12 eb and the $5 K-Y coupon...I got both for $5 and change (I think)...So yea, that was a good deal...But lube would have to do something xtra nice for me to pay $29.99!!!
