The CVS coupon policy is finally available to print and take with you. We have been waiting for this for a very long time and there has been a lot of speculation about what CVS will do.
You can print the CVS coupon policy here and I am including some important notes that I can see:
• In the event that any item’s price is less than the value of the coupon, CVS/pharmacy will accept the coupon only to the price of the item. CVS/pharmacy does not provide cash back in exchange for any coupons.
So that should be nice for many of you that have had problems using coupons that are valued higher than the item (i.e. $1.00 coupons on $.99 items.) They will adjust the coupon down and you can still use it to get the item free. The policy specifically says this plain as day so there should be no further issues for anyone.
The policy also says:
•The number of third-party manufacturer coupons used in a transaction may not exceed the number of items in the transaction.
So that kind of seems like it would be an argument to use two coupons on a Buy One Get One (i.e. buy 2 items, use a Buy One Get One coupon and use a second coupon for the free item) but I don’t know how strong of a case that would be. I think that situation is still just going to be at the discretion of the store.
So all in all I don’t really see anything interesting in this policy. Overall, CVS really likes to give each and every store a tremendous amount of room to determine their own policies. So while this policy helps a little bit you will really just have to determine the policies at your store and roll with that.
They have stated that they are going to continue to enhance the policy blah.. blah… blah… so we will see if there is anything new in the coming weeks.
