I could only find a $1 coupon for Trop50 (not a fan of the taste) at


2 Tara Kuczykowski May 16, 2009 at 12:35 pm

That's right, Caroline. You can use the $1 off on one Tropicana at $2.50 making it $1.50. :)


3 Laurie May 16, 2009 at 12:37 pm

In the Hershey deal, where are the BOGO coupons you reference in your "suggested deal"? Is it a CVS Q or something from the paper? Not that I have 17 of one Q anyway, but new to this and just trying to figure out all these couponing tricks. Thanks!


4 Tara Kuczykowski May 16, 2009 at 12:51 pm

Laurie, that's one that was in the Smartsource Sunday insert on April 19th. eBay is a good resource for multiple coupons for deals like this.


5 Shannon May 16, 2009 at 2:01 pm

It seems like th $2/1 schick coupon is too good to use on a 99 cent purchase - but then I'm still learning. I only have one, so I'm wondering if I should save it for a sale on the nicer disposables. Any advice?


6 Tara Kuczykowski May 16, 2009 at 3:35 pm

Shannon, you can use it to purchase two packs, but sometimes it's good to save them also. It doesn't expire for awhile, so something else may come along.


7 Maureen May 16, 2009 at 5:05 pm

I do believe there is a BOGO coupon (schick Disposable Razor, Any Of Equal Or Lesser Value - 04-05-09 SS - valid up to $12.99) that would be good to use on the schick razors . And I wanted to make sure you knew that the Nabisco crackers (5/$5) include Ritz and Wheat Thins, so you could use the $1 /2 from the 03-15-09 SS


8 Cha-Ching on a Shoestring May 16, 2009 at 10:08 pm

Won't you only need to buy 16 Hershey's bars and use 8 B1G1 coupons since there is a B1G1 deal at CVS? It took me a while to figure that out...but I think it's right, isn't it?


9 Tara Kuczykowski May 16, 2009 at 11:30 pm

You may be right. It's hard to tell without seeing how they ring up. You can always buy a few more if the ECBs don't print. Just check your receipt to see where you stand on the deal.


10 Tracy May 16, 2009 at 11:37 pm

Just thought I'd let you know that the Hershey's Extra large BOGO bars will not work towards the ECB deal.


11 Karen May 17, 2009 at 8:05 am

Also, the Hershey XL BOGO is limited to 4... :-( So, you can't buy 16 to get the $5 ECB deal...


12 denise May 17, 2009 at 8:56 am

Tropicana and Gram Cracker coupons - I can't get either of these - any suggestions? Thanks!


13 Cilla May 17, 2009 at 9:12 am

I tried to use the St. Ives $1.50 coupon for the trial size at $1.49 and cashier would not take it b/c the item had to be at least 1.50.


14 Tara Kuczykowski May 17, 2009 at 9:26 am

Cilla, the cashier should have just adjusted the price of the coupon down to the price of the St. Ives. You can call CVS customer service and let them know you had trouble with your coupon, and they will contact the store.


15 SandyK May 17, 2009 at 11:46 am

Can we do the Hershey Bar BOGO deal more than once on the limit 4 pieces??



16 Dizzy Mommy May 17, 2009 at 6:45 pm

I didn't have EBCs this week which was sad... but I went ahead and bought the chocolate since Im pregnant and was craving it. The ad looked pretty was like 8 pages long but had like one maybe two or three things all huge on each page and none were on sale.


17 Kelle May 17, 2009 at 8:24 pm

I got the same ad. I live in Michigan. No ECBs, not the same sales. Lame.


18 Stacey May 18, 2009 at 3:11 pm

Do these Q's work on the J&J swabs just fine? Or do they beep?

$1/1 Johnson’s Baby Product, exp. 6-10-09 (V 3/8/09)
$1/1 Johnson’s Baby Product, exp. 7-30-09 (V 4/26/09)
$1/1 Johnson’s Body Care Product, exp. 5-31-09 (V 2/22/09)


19 Christy May 19, 2009 at 11:47 pm

I just wanted to let you know that the Purex laundry detergent was BOGO (limit 4) and I had some coupons left over from the last free Purex deal so I was able to get 4 of them for free! Maybe you and some of the others had extra coupons as well and can get in on the deal, I think the coupons expire of 5/31.
