CVS: Green Bag Tag FREE

by Tara Kuczykowski on May 23, 2011 · 11 comments


Many people are reporting receiving a FREE Green Bag Tag coupon when they scan their cards at the "magic coupon machine" this week. These are normally priced at $0.99 each, and each time you shop with your reusable bag, you'll receive $0.25 ECBs, so this is a really great moneymaker.

If you don't get the coupon the first time you scan, keep scanning until the machine says no more coupons!

Thanks, My Frugal Adventures!

I'm still fairly new to couponing/getting freebies, what is this "magic coupon machine"? Thanks!

Hi Laura I will try and answer your question. When I walk into my CVS the coupon machine is on the left side of the main isle, a few isles back. (Just like the ad stand.) You can scan your CVS card and receive coupons that you can use that day or your next visit (they don't expire immediately). Sometimes you will receive your "special" reward money also. Getting the coupon before you go to the register allows you to know what you can shop for before you get your regular rewards with your receipt. Hope that helped.

I have only been super/extreme couponing for a month. My friends are vets and have educated me on making sure to scan my CVS card at the coupon center every time I visit the store. Today, I did get a coupon for a FREE green bag tag. A cashier explained it to me and the benefits. Really cool! Gotta love CVS!
