Caliber School Supplies B1G1
May be able to work out a good deal if you still have the $1/2 Caliber form the coupon machine inside CVS.

Let me know if you see anything I missed!

I believe I have $3 ECB to start off this week.  I can say for sure I will pop in on Sunday to do the Blink deal (since it’s a money-maker!), the Glide floss, and the Sobes!  I don’t have a clear plan other than that, though, so I’ll be sure to update after.

*Also, a note about the Sobes.  I have gone to the same CVS since moving to Ohio and they have always been more than wonderful about all of my deals, coupons, etc.  They mentioned a couple weeks ago, though, that some people have abused this deal and come in with 30+ coupons, filling up their cart with free product.  I usually go in with 2-4 B1G1 coupons, getting 4-8 for free.  If a cashier is upset by it (which at my CVS they never have been, but other CVS stores are not always as great), I try to politely and cheerfully remind them that CVS is reimbursed by the manufacturer so they are still getting the same price for the Sobes I get with coupons that they would by someone walking in without coupons.  One of my biggest rules of couponing is to remember to BE NICE!  Smile!  No one likes grouchy shopper, and a grouchy shopper with a whole bunch of coupons for them to scan is even worse!  🙂

    There was no print limit for that SOBE coupon so I was able to print 23 of them before I got bored of doing that. I just went back each day and got 6-12. I still have some coupons left and will definitely be getting more of the SOBE’s. I’ve never had a problem at the Tiffin one.

    • Jenn, I’m glad you’ve had a good experience at the Tiffin CVS! My regular store is always awesome, but I went to another store across town one afternoon and they were… well, I’ll just say less-than-lovely 😉

      Also, I believe they fixed that link so that there is a print limit now but it’s daily… so if I print 2 today, I can print 2 more tomorrow, etc. I will definitely be getting some, as well!

    I have heard bad things about other CVS stores too. I’m thankful the one here is great. Makes getting our deals all that easier. I haven’t been on the SOBE website lately. It’s probably a good thing they fixed it since there was pretty much no limit in the beginning.
