Warning! Don't leave the store without rainchecks!

This week I was reminded yet again why I love rainchecks SO much. A few weeks ago, CVS ran a sale on Purex 3 in 1 detergent streets. Normally $9.99, they were on sale for $5.99, plus $2 ECB back when you buy one. My store was out, so I got a raincheck for 1. I put it in my CVS envelope with a $3 off 1 coupon from the paper. Last week, they were back in stock again. And by then, I also had a $3 ECB gift card that came in the mail in a flyer, so I took my $3 off coupon, my $3 ECB and I paid all of 21 cents (tax) for 20 detergent sheets that retail for $9.99!! And I got $2 ECB back for it too!

If there is a good deal on something, and your store is out (this goes for grocery or drug stores!) ALWAYS ALWAYS ALWAYS get a raincheck. CVS may only let you get one if there is a limit per card. If there is no limit, you can ask for however many you can use (or have coupons for!). CVS rainchecks never expire, and they are good at any CVS store. Grocery store policies vary, so check their rainchecks for expiration dates, etc. If you are combining a raincheck deal with coupons, remember to keep an eye on the expiration dates of your coupons, too! Don't let them expire, y'all - these are like money!!

  1. I always get frustrated when things are out when I get to the store but LOVE that CVS has a great rain check policy. They aren't all that good for sure. And love their ECB program!!
