Best deals in the 4/12 CVS ad


  • CVS App -- go here to download your free app + get $3 in Extra Bucks for it!
  • ANY Nivea Body Lotion or Creme -- Buy two, get $5 back in Extra Bucks.  No prices listed in ad, but many stores carry the Nivea Smooth Sensation Body Lotion for $2.99 per 2.5 oz bottle (not a trial size, btw.)  So buy two for $5.98, then use two $2 off coupons from the 4/12 Smartsource insert.  You'll pay $1.98 out of pocket, then receive $5 back in Extra Bucks.  So both are free, plus you'll earn a profit of $2.02 on your transaction!
  • Colgate Total Advanced Toothpaste -- on sale for $3 per tube.  Scan your Extra Care card at the CVS Coupon Center and get a $2.50 off CVS coupon to stack with the 50 cents off coupon arriving in the 4/12 Smartsource insert.  Your toothpaste will be free!
  • Almay Intense i-Color Eyeliner, Shadow, or Mascara -- on sale for $5.99 each.  If you haven't used last week's $5 off $15 CVS coupon, here's what I recommend: Buy three for a pre-coupon price of $17.97.  Use the $5 off $15 CVS coupon FIRST to knock your price down to $12.97, then give three $4 off Almay coupons from the 4/12 Smartsource insert.  Your final price drops to 97 cents for all three items, or 33 cents each!
