CVS 8/31 – 9/6 (3 under $1)

New to CVS? Be sure to read Smart Shopping at CVS. Plus make sure you print out the NEW CVS coupon policy.

How to use CVS to “Coupon to Disney”:

  • Save on items that you normally buy. You can usually get free shampoo, conditioner, razors, toothbrushes, etc here. I also find that they have fairly cheap soda too.
  • After you have shopped here a few weeks, you will start to build up your ECBs. CVS usually has 1 or 2 ‘money making’ deals a week. By using ECBs to pay for items, you essentially eliminate your out of pocket costs and get everything you buy at CVS for ‘free’.
  • Use your ECBs to pay for items that are eligible for rebates. When the check arrives, deposit it into your fund!
  • Use your ECBs to pay for items that you were going to pay cash for. Take the cash you were going to spend and deposit it into your fund!
  • Be sure to read the Getting Started Couponing to Disney guide!

Create your personal shopping list: Click on the box next to each item you would like to purchase and they will appear on the My List on the right side. After you add all the items you would like to purchase, click on My List and print your custom shopping list.

I recently purchased tickets to an Alabama Football Game from I chose the game and told it where I wanted my seats. I put in a bid and they came back and said it was a little too low and they listed the amount they would need to sell the tickets for. I was okay with their new amount and I purchased the tickets. I just printed them off and my kids are so excited to be going to a football game.

Overall the entire process was very easy. I definitely plan to purchase more tickets from in the future! Be sure to check out what events are near you. provided me with a discount code to review their website. All words and opinions are my own.
