CVS Brand 20% Off CRT

I just got home from doing my big weekly trip at my 24 hour store and wanted to report back about the 20% CVS brand CRT.

It only saved me $2.58. I do not know how it takes into consideration $/$$ and ECBs that ring as CVS coupons (I used 2x $10/50 and also $11 worth of force printed ECBs).

Items I bought that were a CVS brand:
These are listed in the top section of my receipt with the rest of the sale items:
- Total Home Stain Remover Pen $2.67 (bought one only) - BMSM 2 @ $2.50each
- CVS prenatals with DHA 30ct, clearanced for $3.62 (I didn't expect it to take off of these but wanted to mention it in case anybody is looking for cheap prenatals...these aren't cheap per se but if you need to use a $/$$ vitamin CRT, check for these with the rest of the prenatals)
- Gold Emblem Gummy Bears $.99 (not sure why this is listed with the sale stuff, I thought they were always $.99?)
- Gold Emblem Shortbread Cookies $2.99 (these are on sale in the ad)
- CVS prenatals BOGO (didn't expect % off of this)

Listed with nonsale:
- CVS Dry Skin Therapy lotion $6.49
- 2x Gold Emblem Apple Juice $3.79 each

If you add the nonsale CVS stuff ($14.07) and do 20%, it would be $2.81, and it took off only $2.58.

I'm not posting this as a complaint that it didn't take it off the stain remover pen or the gummy bears, but more as a way to figure out how these kinds of coupons work. I'm not sure if the $/$$ goes proportionally to the non-CVS items versus the CVS items the way it works with a regular % coupon. I'm not even sure how I would add that up since a % wouldn't work on any sale items anyway, CVS or not. (For reference, total nonsale non-CVS items came to $51.46.)

So I guess it's clear at least that it will not work on BMSM items even if you buy only one, which is true of the other % coupons.

Sorry if this is rambling, it's been one of *those* kinds of days and I need to get some rest. Tomorrow is day 1 of potty training.

ETA I did use a CRT for I think $2 off WYS $10 on lotion. I had another nonsale non-CVS lotion for $5.99. Not sure if maybe that's part of the difference in dividing up the $/$$ also.

Thanks for this. It seems like these are probably going to act like any % coupon that is attached to your card which makes sense.

Your non sale lotion was proportionately a little more than half your overall lotion total. When I take off $1.04 to account for the proportion of the CRT that should have applied, I come within 2 cents of what the register calculated as the discount.
