CVS Magic Coupon Machine- Revealed!

Posted By Alyssa Francis On July 28, 2008 @ 10:21 pm In Coupon Tips,CVS | 30 Comments

Several readers have asked about the scanners in CVS that spit out coupons upon scanning your ExtraCare card [1]. It has been affectionately dubbed the magic coupon machine among CVSers.

Not every CVS has one, but just in case you are wondering what all the fuss is about, here is a (silent) demonstration of the machine in action:

Can you picture me in CVS trying to be all stealth? There were 3 staff members within 20 feet of me when I filmed this, unbeknownst to them. Notice I scanned twice, and each time received coupons.

I received 5 coupons, which I tucked away for future use. Usually, the coupons will correlate with an upcoming deal.

Since you can use both a CVS coupon and a manufacturers coupon on one item, these can definitely sweeten the deal. If you are really lucky, the machine will bless you with a $/$$ coupon. This has yet to happen to me, but I am patiently waiting, CVS!
