    Notes About Early Activation:

    • Early Activation on Saturday Late Afternoon or Evening.
    • Sales can Early activate, but red box coupons won’t print early
    • Just because next week’s signs are up, doesn’t mean that the store has early activated next week’s sale. To be sure, take an item known to go on sale next week and price check it. For example, this week huggies jumbo pack diapers are $8.99 (Reg $11.99)

        Hi Jessica!

        Ok. As I mentioned in the video, SavingStar works differently for CVS. You need to set it up online first to link your CVS card with your SavingStar account. AND you have to check the offer. And then when you do the deal SS will automatically know. According to one comment earlier, they said its not instant. So even if you do it a day after you do the deal, they will pick it up. I haven’t tried that, so I can’t help more. I just know, they want you to set it up in advanced.

        For ibotta, I just checked and I still see the diaper offer. Its possible that its not available for your region. You can try changing the zip code to 77477 or 90210. Try checking online: https://ibotta.com/rebates/14701/diapers—any-brand

      Can you please do Safeway videos. I’m new to couponing and we mostly Safeway around my area. I don’t see any CVS. (NW oregon)

    6. -4

      My coupon (coupons.com) for the glade refills $1.25/1 says only one coupon per purchase and that it can’t be combined with another coupon, however she suggests using two in order to get $2.50 off at CVS. Am I missing something??
