What zip codes give you the speed stick printable?
I tried about 10 major cities all over the country and don't think any worked.


3 Laura July 18, 2009 at 3:09 pm

CVS had the same pantiliners deal two weeks ago, and they actually printed $0.99 ECBs instead of $0.89 ECBs. I'm interested to see if they have fixed it for this week!


4 Jess R. July 18, 2009 at 3:25 pm

Hey Christopher,
Try 33907 for the speedstick :)


5 Sati July 18, 2009 at 5:23 pm

the veet RIb coupon is a MANUFACTURER coupon FYI the barcode starts with a 5. it will beep if you try to combine it with the printable


6 angie July 18, 2009 at 7:31 pm

i was able to print two speedsticks using the 33907 zip code


7 Sati July 18, 2009 at 7:46 pm

just wantd to also add. the johnson IP is only on the pads with the neosporin in them which are kinda expensive. and the sobe coupon link says i have already printed it but i have not at all ever printed it. so i dont know what is going on with that one. not trying to be rude, just informational.


8 Angelika July 19, 2009 at 12:05 am

I printed Speedstick coupon by using 19347


9 Michele July 19, 2009 at 8:35 am

Thanks for the zip code for the speed stick : )

I just returned from CVS and had a great time! I figured out that the CVS pantiliners print $0.89 ECBs this week instead of $0.99 ECBs like two weeks ago. My store was out of the PaperMate pens, CVS pencils, and 1" binders, but I had no trouble getting rainchecks for all three.

Regarding the binders, has anyone had trouble finding the correct binders that are advertised in the circular? My store only carried Avery 1" economy and durable binders, and neither of these had the$3 ECBs shelf talkers or scanned at the sale price. The clerk said said the sale is probably for CVS or Caliber binders but didn't think they carried them. She said she would ask her manager about the deal later today and post a sign, but I'm just curious to see if anyone else had this same issue.


11 Sati July 19, 2009 at 5:21 pm

My store substituted on the binders. from what i am ready VERY few stores actually got in the ones for the sale.


12 Jess R. July 19, 2009 at 5:25 pm

The Terre Haute, IN store had the binders in there back to school isle not in there year round school suppy isle.


13 Amy July 19, 2009 at 5:53 pm

I'm pretty frustrated w/ CVS. It's definitely a "destination" for me but I ventured out early in the afternoon to get the free school supplies. The first store I went to said they didn't even get any. Second store couldn't tell me where they were & whether they had any. There were no tags on the filler paper or Papermate pens advertising the ECB's. They were out of the other stuff. I did get rainchecks. I'm frustrated because at 2:00 on Sunday afternoon they should not be out of the stuff that was in their ad. They should be willing to substitute items or somehow compensate the customer for their inconvenience. I know they're super good deals but I think it's misleading to advertise & not be able to meet the demand.

15 CVS Brand Baby Formula July 19, 2009 at 7:44 pm

CVS recently introduced its own CVS Pharmacy Infant Formula. The CVS formula costs upwards of 35% less than the expensive Enfamil and Similac formulas and contains the same ingredients. My doctor said I could use the store brand instead because all infant formula meets the same FDA regulations. Now I can buy CVS aspsirin, cotton swabs, and now baby formula!


16 rydergal July 19, 2009 at 8:35 pm

Amy, your compensation is thet you got a raincheck, and can now get the items at your convenience. What else do you expect them to do? I personally think CVS gets some weird twisted enjoyment out of advertising things and then not having them in stock, but at least they'll let you get the deal later on. Rainchecks aren't offered by everyone...enjoy them :)


17 Laura July 19, 2009 at 8:50 pm

I didn't notice a separate "back-to-school" section in my store - just the regular school supply aisle. I'll have to look again. I agree with many of you that the school supply shortage is annoying sometimes. I got a raincheck for the CVS/Caliber invisible tape a few weeks ago and neither store has yet received more. It's not so bad as long as their advertisements match their supply, and as long as they offer rainchecks and/or begin sales with a large supply of the items from the start to prevent shortages. I sympathize for those of you whose stores refuse to give rainchecks for 2-day sales!


18 Kellee July 19, 2009 at 10:26 pm

I asked the manager about the 1" binders and they were all out. She told me that the other CVS stores nearby were out as well. I didn't ask for a raincheck either. I agree that they're not advertising the school sales properly. I have to hunt for the 3-day deals!

I still love CVS and the ECBs!


19 The Leonards July 20, 2009 at 5:54 am

I went to 5 CVS stores Sunday and neither store had all the items, each manager said the same thing, that they did not get any in. No store had the binders. After I use my bucks, I am going to give CVSing a rest. It's frustrating to have your trip planned and then walk out without anything because items were not ordered.


20 esther July 20, 2009 at 11:26 am

the kodak movie dvd is limit 1 not 5. I went yesterday to do the dvd, and my limit is reached after my first try. Where did you see limit 5?


21 Lindsey July 20, 2009 at 3:33 pm

The ad having things that stores never got is always frustrating...I know there have been a couple items at Walgreens (those OFF fans...) that were advertised and then never in the store for the sale. So I looked into this through Walgreens. I found out that they approve their ads long before sales start, and if they know something is going to not be in, they try to pull the ad and replace it with one of thier "filler" sale things. However, sometimes they don't know until it is too late. So maybe CVS has really bad shipping issues?? I was also curious about DVD limit. I wanted to make a movie of our trip to Disney a few years back...


22 Tara Kuczykowski July 20, 2009 at 3:39 pm

Esther, someone on SlickDeals posted an ad that was in the stores stating the limit is actually 5. Does the bottom of your receipt say you've reached the limit with only one purchase?


23 esther July 20, 2009 at 4:18 pm

yep, limit reached when I only did 1 dvd

I actually prefer CVS to all of the other stores!!! Their system is so much easier for me to deal with. I try to go by 9 am on Sunday morning for any 2 or 3 day sales. I didn't get out until about 11 this Sunday and that's when I discovered the extra school supply aisle. In my store, the far wall has pens, pencils, binders, shipping supplies, etc. but there is also an aisle toward the middle of the store with those same products and a lot more!!! I was able to get all of the free after ECB items except for the pencils.


25 Samantha July 22, 2009 at 2:30 pm

I did the photo dvd deal today but the associates had trouble finding the Kodak DVD in their system and rang up something else and gave me a $10 ECB. Works for me, but now I don't know whether I should be able to do more -- I will do at least 1 because the first one was not tied to the promo at all if that makes sense. But I hope they get it figured out because I will do a total of at least 3 but I don't want to take advantage if I am only allowed 1. Anyway, I did want to share a tip. I had burned a CD with my photos and renamed all the files in order from 1-57 thinking that the Kodak computer would keep them in the same order. However, it kept them in order according to what number the file started with. For example -- 0, 1,11,12,13.....then when it got through the teens it went to 2, 20, 21, 22, 23, etc. So it took a little more time to resort. Hope this helps someone on the front end!


26 Samantha July 23, 2009 at 2:01 pm

I went to another CVS and bought a second photo DVD. The associates there were able to ring up the proper item and it printed out my ECB. Bad news is that it did say Offer Limit Reached after only doing 1. Good news is that I ended up getting 2 since the first store didn't know what they were doing. =) I don't try to take advantage, but sometimes these things just happen! But for those who are trying to get 5, I don't think it's going to happen.


27 Laura July 25, 2009 at 9:05 pm

I've been doing the free milk wyb 5 deal ... I thought it was only for a particular brand of milk named Dean's milk; however, my store has had a sign posted for weeks that says "Free milk when you buy 5 gallons before July 25!" and they only carry Schepp's milk. I had purchased 4 gallons of Schepp's milk from this store before I noticed that it wasn't counting towards the free milk, so I brought my receipts to the cashier and he simply printed a $3 ECB for a free gallon of milk and apologized. Woohoo! I hope they continue the good deals on milk ... the cheapest milk I've found is $1.99 at Kroger, but CVS milk is $2.69 get $1 ECB back, so it's like paying $1.69. I'll continue buying milk @ CVS until they get rid of the deal - and the cashiers are much friendlier than the cashiers at Kroger!
