CVS: Stayfree Pads Money Maker (Monthly Deal)

by Tara Kuczykowski on March 4, 2010 · 22 comments


CVS has a monthly ECB deal for March on Stayfree pads that we can turn into a sweet money maker!

Stayfree Pads (14-24 ct.), $3.89
Get $2 ECBs (Limit 4)

$1/1 Stayfree Product printable (IE) or printable (FF)
B1G1 Stayfree Product, exp. 3-31-10 (RP #2 1/3/10)
Better than FREE after both coupons and ECBs!

Note that it seems like not all of the Stayfree pads are producing the ECBs. Look for UPC code 380040927001.

Also included in the deal are Carefree liners. Note that you can only earn ECBs on a total of four products between the pads and liners.

Carefree Liners (38-60 ct.), $3.99

I'm in So Cal, I'm heading to CVS but you should know that all deals vary by region and should price check them before buying them.

Yeah I bought these on Monday and didn't get any extracare bucks. I emailed corporate and they issued them for me. On another site someone said they only received the extracare bucks on the stayfree regular pads. hth :)

Can you use a BOGO and $ off coupon together. I have not done that before. But I would try if it works.

LaVonne, it varies by store, but I've always been successful doing it at CVS. Basically, the B1G1 coupon attaches to the free item, and then $1 off coupon attaches to the item you're actually paying for. Now, you wouldn't be able to do this with a $1/2 coupon and a B1G1 coupon because that would be like using two manufacturer's coupons on the free product. Does that make sense?

Price checking does not show if ECB are attached to them. I had even asked the manager if their price guns will show it and he said no and I asked if the register will show it before you pay and he said no. So I tried it and the ECB didn't print.

I used a BOGO and a $1 per 2 packs so I ended up paying around $5.50 plus tax for 4 packs so I will just keep them. Its more than I would ever pay for them but it was a chance I took.

I just want to figure it out so I can do it on my other card LOL

Also, is this advertised somewhere? Then I could take my receipt back in and get them to manually print the ECB with the promo code.

There should be tags up in the stores with the deal. Unfortunately, they've stopped printing the monthly booklet.

One of my readers bought 2 deod and 2 reg and got 1/2 the ECB so we figure the ones that I dind't get are the ones that are working.

Did it today....no ECB's. Guess I'll email and see what happens. Shelly did they mail them to you or add on to next time you use your card?

I called corporate and asked them what the ECB number code was for the deal so that the store could push them out next time I bought them. They couldn't find it in their system, but said they would research it, but they didn't say they would call me back, just have them print out in a week or two "if I was eligible". Didn't like the sound of that. Didn't work with UPC 380040840003 (Stayfree maxi super long with wings 16 count)

How do you find out the monthly deals without the monthly book that they used to supply for us? Would love to know...

Thanks for all of your hard work!

It's by word of mouth, Sheri. Readers will email me about the shelf tags they find or other people will post about it on various forums. I miss the printed booklet though!

I asked the cashier first and he ran 1 through, a $2 EB printed and he voided it . . . . then he gave me the $2 ECB!! I bought 4 packs of the regular [no wings] thermo-control pads. That's all they had in the thermo-control version [I like those better than the older version]. Anyway, I used my ECB from that transaction to pay for the Kellogg's cereal deal and was surprised to find that I owede $2 more than I anticipated. Turns out the limit on the pad offer is only 3, not 4, so I only got $6 ECBs on that deal. I looked at my recepit and confirmed . . . it said offer limit reached with 3 packs.

But since the cashier was soooo nice and gave me the $2 ECB from the price check, I ended up getting $8 worth of ECBS anyway!!! He was more than generous and I was very grateful to him . . . . and to think some cashiers act like you're stealing money from them when you're trying to work legitimate coupon deals. I mean sometimes I really break a sweat wondering how a cashier will react to my coupons. It was very refreshing to actually have someone be that nice to me today . . .

I bought two packs of Stayfree today because when I scanned my card at the kiosk, I got a coupon for $4 off when you buy 2 Stayfree or Carefree. They're marked $3.99, so after ECBs, even without a coupon, it's like getting them both free! Let's just say our mission closet at church is well stocked now. :)

The $2/1 stayfree in the 3/28 insert makes this deal even sweeter!!!!
