CVS moneymaker next week. FINALLY.

If you've been clipping coupons for some time but haven't yet started at CVS, next week would be a great time to start.

Starting Sunday, Bayer Contour meters are 14.99 and generate 5 ECBs. There were 30.00/1 coupons for the meters in 10/26/08, 2/1/09 and 3/22/09 paper inserts. The coupon will adjust down, making the monitor free and you'll get back 5 ECBs for tax. You can do this deal twice.

If you don't have the coupons you can purchase them from The Coupon Clippers. They cost a dollar each with a $3 minimum order (plus shipping/handling fees) and should get to you sometime next week. If your CVS is out of meters by the time you get the coupons you can always get a rain check and go in later on. Even after spending just over three bucks for the coupons you're still going to walk away with 10 ECBs which is about a six dollar profit.

Thanks to I Heart CVS for the ad scan and heads-up.

just a question - does this deal still work if it says "no discounts apply" on the ad? I don't do the cvs deals frequently, but saw the monitor in today's cvs ad.

Yep. Those discounts refer to insurance company discounts for glucose meters. The way to look at it is, coupons aren't discounts, they are a form of payment.
