Guest: Amanda Grossman
Want to find out how to get hundreds of dollars in free products every year? If you shop at CVS (or don’t, but have one in your community) chances are you are leaving money on the table. There is a method to maximizing your savings at CVS -and similarly at Walgreens - and once you learn how to play “the drugstore game” you can do this too.
In this interview, my guest Amanda Grossman, author of the ebook, The CVS Drugstore Game, shares how to save a ton of money on personal care products, make up and more. She has received over $2800 in free products from CVS over four years! That’s $700 a year in free stuff.
We discuss how to roll your ExtraCare Bucks (ECBs) and how to use multiple coupons/ExtraCare Bucks on a single purchase and more. You’ll learn when and how you can double up on coupons, use discount savings and more.
As Amanda says, “This is not your grandmother’s couponing. It is focused couponing.”
Once you learn how to play the game it can take just a few minutes a week. I saved $22 on a purchase before I even finished her book, and found out afterward that I could have saved even more. Needless to say, I am a fan! This episode aired live November 25, 2013.
Amanda L. Grossman adds frugal decadence back into the lives of the overly budget-conscious and cash-strapped so that they live for the now + save for the future. She blogs about frugal hacks and the lifestyle over at FrugalConfessions.com. Amanda lives with her husband and two cats in Houston, TX.
