CVS: J&J Money Maker, FL & MI Milk Deals + Upcoming Electrasol FREE Deal

Johnson & Johnson First Aid To Go Money Maker
A few updates for CVS this week and beyond . . .

:: Johnson & Johnson First Aid Kits

I meant to post about this yesterday, but it completely slipped my mind! While making my CVS run, I noticed that the Johnson & Johnson First Aid To Go! kits priced at $0.99 had the J&J $5 ECB offer tag on them. If you can get your hands on enough of them, you can turn this into a moneymaker. Or it would just be a good way to fill out your transaction to get to exactly $10.

Johnson & Johnson First Aid To Go! Kits, $0.99
Get $5 wyb $10 (limit 5)

$1/1 Johnson & Johnson Red Cross Product, exp. 8-31-09 (V 5/17/09)
Better than free after coupons and ECBs!

:: FL & MI Milk Deals

Plus CVS is running a special promotion where you get a free gallon of milk when you buy five gallons!

:: Upcoming Electrasol FREE Deal

CVS will have Electrasol on sale for 2/$9 during the week of 8/2. You'll earn $10 in ECBs when you buy $20 of select Electrasol, Lysol, Resolve and Air Wick products. Stock up on the $2.50/1 Electrasol coupons on eBay to get FREE dishwasher detergent!

anyone know if the 2/$9 will include the qunatam tabs?


2 Kristina July 21, 2009 at 1:14 am

Does anyone know what the limit is for this deal. Can we do it more then once? Thanks.


3 kristine July 21, 2009 at 1:24 am

my cvs had the $1 ECB when you buy Dean's 2% as well, i live in IL


4 Rei July 21, 2009 at 8:15 am

The Electasol deal is limit 1. There's also a free Stayfree deal the same 2 @ $10, get $5 back. If you use the bogo coupon, it's free after ECB!


5 Hillary July 21, 2009 at 8:28 am

I have a question about the limit on items. For example when something is on sale 4/$4.00 and the limit is five does that mean you can buy 20? Thanks!


6 christina m July 21, 2009 at 8:57 am

my cvs would not take the printable milk coupon...the manager said they don't take internet coupons at all...=(


7 Tracy July 21, 2009 at 10:59 am

I'm pretty new to this, so I need to be walked through it a little. It's 2/9 and we have to spend $20 to make the deal do we do that and have it be free? I think I am missing something. Thanks!

8 Kelly July 21, 2009 at 10:59 am

Yes, you can buy 20!


9 Hillary July 21, 2009 at 11:02 am

Ughhh. Thanks Kelly. I was there last night and after talking to two employees who looked at me like I was crazy for wanting 20 soy joy bars for my rain check they wouldn't let me do the transaction. I will get a manager next time I go. Thanks again! =)


10 Rei July 21, 2009 at 11:42 am

Tracy -
Buy 5 electrasols for $22.50
Use (5) $2.50 coupon
Pay - $10 out of pocket (OOP) but receive $10 ECB back

It's free after rewards, but you can use previous rewards to lower your OOP.

How do you know what will be on sale in upcoming weeks?


12 Tara Kuczykowski July 21, 2009 at 11:53 am

Tracy, I went back and looked at the deal, and I think the scenario is wrong. You'll need to purchase 5 boxes at $24.50, used 5 coupons to deduct $12.50, and then after the ECBs it's like paying $0.50 ea.

I'll adjust my post now. Thanks!


13 Briana July 21, 2009 at 11:55 am

Milk Deal is valid in Indiana...It is Dean's Milk but same deal!


14 Rei July 21, 2009 at 12:09 pm

Hi Tara,

I think your original post was correct...the electrasol is free after ECB. I double checked the ad - it's $4.50 each ($22.50 for 5).

Sheesh, thanks, Rei! Having a rough morning after a run to the ER to have my ankle looked at. Good news is it's not broken. Bad news – I won't be able to wear my cute new silver strappy heels that I got for a steal at JCrew yesterday at BlogHer this week. :(


16 Tracy July 21, 2009 at 12:36 pm

Thanks Tara and Rei! I got some q's and can't wait to run this deal. CVS is an addiction I tell ya!

18 Bianca July 21, 2009 at 6:23 pm

Hillary, I'm pretty sure that you can only buy 5 Soy Joy bars. When they say 4/$4, it means that they are 1.00 each (It's just kind of a sales tactic to get you to buy more). If the deal was buy 4 Soy Joy bars, get $4 ECBs and there was a limit of 5, then I think you could get 20 bars. Does that make sense?


19 Laura July 21, 2009 at 9:56 pm

Hillary - It sounds like the clerk who wrote the raincheck made a mistake. There's a spot that says "quantity" and normally this means the maximum number of items you can purchase. I'm assuming your clerk wrote 4 on that line instead of 20. However, there's no spot on the raincheck form (both the old form and the new form) to include the number of times you can repeat the deal, so the clerk should have written 20. Hopefully he wrote down the ECB event code so the manager can verify it, but just in case, I'd bring a copy of that week's circular with you to the store.


20 Laura July 21, 2009 at 10:03 pm

Bianca - no, she should be able to buy 20. I actually bought 12 bars the week the deal was active and my receipt said I still hadn't reached my limit. The limit is on the 4/$4 deal, not the individual bars themselves.


21 Hillary July 21, 2009 at 11:16 pm

Thank you all for your input. I will try to get was 4/$4 and the limit was 5. Let's see what happens...=)


22 mari July 22, 2009 at 12:02 am

Does anyone know if the jandj on sale for .99 @ cal.


23 angie July 22, 2009 at 7:48 am

so on the electrasol deal, is the limit one offer or 5?


24 becalive July 22, 2009 at 8:36 am

Is the electrasol powder form or in the tablets?


25 Tara Kuczykowski July 22, 2009 at 9:30 am

There is a limit of one deal on the Electrasol, so you can get a total of five free boxes. I just looked up the ad, and it says 20-ct. I'm assuming it will include the gel packs and tablets.

Also I just saw that every card holder will get a coupon for a free item when they make a purchase this week like last year. I think I got free aspirin, but I know there were several items.


26 angie July 22, 2009 at 10:49 am

thanks tara. any idea the valid dates to shop to get the free coupon?


27 Tara Kuczykowski July 22, 2009 at 11:51 am

Angie, it looks like it's all month long!


28 Pippi July 23, 2009 at 10:58 am

Okay girls, I'm new to the CVS game. I've been practicing with easy scenarios for the past couple of weeks, and I've saved (even made) a hefty sum each week. Now, this Electrasol deal seems too good to pass up, and I'm suspecting I'll have to pounce first and pounce fast before all the product flies off the shelves. But to what lengths do you go? Do I need to be waiting when the store opens in the morning? Visit a 24-hour location, stock my cart at 11pm and wait for the witching hour? Buy the items now, full price, and return them next week during the promotion only to purchase them again? I've thought of doing that, but I'm not sure that CVS would refund my full purchase price during a sale. Would it work? Is this practice frowned upon? Our stores get cleaned out pretty quickly. What's a penny-pincher to do?


29 Laura July 23, 2009 at 11:40 pm

Pippi - I usually go shopping around midnight to snag the deals when they first start, but that's also because I work late evenings doing tech support and get off work at 11:30pm on Saturdays. This probably isn't a great option if you have a "normal" schedule. :) If your store doesn't have the quantity you want to buy when you're there, simply ask for a rain check. Just make sure to redeem your raincheck before the coupons expire.


30 Pippi July 25, 2009 at 1:19 pm

Thanks Laura. Will purchases made with rainchecks still generate ECBs?


31 Hillary July 25, 2009 at 2:43 pm

Yes! You still get the ECB's with a that is great! =)


32 Laura July 25, 2009 at 4:55 pm

Pippi - the ECBs will not automatically print when you use a raincheck, but most CVS clerks are adept at forcing the ECBs to print after the sale. You will also want to make sure they ring up your items at the correct price - I bought Tylenol this past week with a raincheck and the cashier forgot to override the price to $3.99 until I pointed out that the raincheck was for a lower price.
