Do you use Extra Care Bucks and Register Rewards?

If you pay full price for personal care items, then you are probably spending quite a bit each month.  If you use coupons with the purchase of these items, you would be saving quite a bit of money, however, if you combined those coupons with a sale and/or a reward from CVS or Walgreens, you would hardly be paying cash for any of these items. 

A couple years ago, I finally learned what I was suppose to do with that pretty red card (the Extra Care card) I had signed up for at CVS and I haven't looked back since!  I had the card for several years but didn't know what to do with it other than let them scan it if I saw something on sale.  That's where I was wrong!  Then, we got a Walgreens in our town!  I was doubly excited.  Since that time, I have saved hundreds, well actually, more like a couple thousand if I was counting, and I hardly pay anything for personal care items or I get them free.  Actually, last night, I bought, shaving cream, a razor, shampoo, conditioner, and a case of water and paid $3.xx for it all at CVS!

I could sit here and tell you what I know about Extra Care Bucks and Register Rewards, but other people that have used them longer have done it already. is a great resource for any type of savings, especially while shopping.  You can learn all about Extra Care bucks here and about Register Rewards here.  Even though I don't usually shop at Rite Aid, they have a similar program that you can learn about here.  These are just a few examples of what you can find on We Use Coupons website.  There are listings for each type of store, big box, grocery, drug store, etc as well as lists of what is currently on sale matched up with the coupons to use and the rewards you will receive to maximinze your dollar.  As soon as the next ad is released (usually way before it is released to the public), it will be posted on the website and the coupon match ups listed. 

I can't say enough about the great deals that can be found on We Use Coupons and the great deals you can get using Extra Care Bucks and Register Rewards.  I think if I paid full price for shampoo or toothpaste or even a razor, I would not be able to stand it after saving so much money like this!  Check it out for yourself and you too can be saving your way to a great a great treat and for me, that would be my next Disney trip!
