Q&A: How Do I Use My CVS Percent off Coupons?

How can I get  percent-off coupon coupon?


The % off coupon generally comes to your email from CVS!  Some can be printed at the bottom of your receipt or at the CVS Redbox machine from your account.


Can a % off coupon be used more than once?

No, a % off coupon can only be used once!


Percent-off coupons do NOT apply to:
➪Sale Items

➪Items part of a BOGO or BOGO 50% Sale (even if you only purchase one item)

➪Clearance Items


Percent-off coupons DO apply to:
➪Regular Price Items

➪Regular Price Items producing ECB


 The percent-off coupon will reduce when you these coupons:

➪Beauty Club Reward

➪Purchase-Based Coupons (e.g. $4/$20)

➪Manual- or Force-printed extrabucks

➪Expired extrabucks or other manual discounts

➪Any coupon that scans as a “cvs coupon”

➪Other percent-off coupons (if you’re using more than one)


The following are taken off after the percent-off coupon:

  •     Manufacturer coupons
  •     ECB  earned from weekly/monthly deals (that aren’t force-printed or manually entered)
  •     Store coupons that scan as a “cvs mfr coupon”

Check out a quick example of using a CVS %off coupon & how it is applied below:

% off Transaction Scenerio:

  • You have a 30% off CVS Coupon
  • Your subtotal is $50.00  (all items in your transaction qualify towards the 30% off.
  • You are thinking that you will get a total of  $15 off for the % coupon.
  • You also use a $6.00/$30.00 and $5.00 Beauty Club Reward.
  • The percent-off will be applied  after the above coupons has been subtracted off the total of your purchase.   30% will be applied to $39.00 instead of $50.00.
  • As a result, the % off coupon will only take off $11.70 as opposed to the $15 you initially thought!

I really hope that this helps to clear the air on some of the % off CVS coupons that we have been having!  Good luck on your deals!
