Shop CVS Online Before Saturday to Save 25% — or Even More, If You Follow These Steps
Great news from the Internets this morning: CVS is having a sitewide online sale!
Take 25% off of anything in the store — and free shipping if you spend $35 or more — with the CVS coupon code SAVE25.
Since CVS already offers awesome prices, that’s a pretty great deal.
I know I, for one, am ready to re-up on my toiletries. My bathroom is looking pretty bare.
So, I excitedly rushed to the site and filled my cart with my favorite toothpaste, mouthwash, shampoo, conditioner and bodywash.
But I’m a writer at The Penny Hoarder… so 25% off wasn’t enough for me.
Get the Penny Hoarder Price
The items in my cart cost a total of $30.56, or $36.05 with shipping.
I applied the discount to see an instant drop to $22.91, or $28.40 after shipping. Not bad already, right?
But I knew I could save even more.
First of all, I wanted free shipping, so I threw a couple of extra things I could use into my cart (can you say new nail polish and dark chocolate?).
My total came to $36.69 — pretty close to to the exact minimum price for free shipping.
But I still wasn’t ready to check out yet.
Turns out there was an electronic gift card valued at $41.98 for just $36.35 — which means I’d spend less money than my CVS shopping cart total, and I’d still have $5 left to spend at CVS later.
Finally, when I purchased that eCode, I used my Barclaycard CashForward World MasterCard® to make 1.5% cash rewards on the purchase price — just 50 cents in this case, but still even more savings.
I was an English major, so I’ll let you do the math. But I definitely scored way more than 25% off.
End result: more stuff, less money, happy Penny Hoarder.
How to Stack Your Own CVS Deal
If you want to add up your own savings, it’s simple. Here’s a recap of what I did:
1. Shop at CVS using discount code SAVE25 — make sure you put at least $35 worth of goodies in your cart to get free shipping. If you order before noon ET, it’ll even be two-day shipping.
3. Purchase your eCode using your favorite cash-back or rewards credit card to earn while you spend.
4. Profit. Well, sort of. A penny saved is a penny earned, after all.
