Great job on the diaper deal. I got diapers too, but didn't get as good of a deal. I was still happy to get something, though!
Thanks for the soda encouragement on my blog. I think I will be like your husband... no soda at all, a slippery slope indeed!

Can the $4/20 coupon be used more than once on one card or do I need 2 cards?

Thank you for posting this. I'm so glad you found some good buys.

You can use it more than once on one card.

I'm new to this. What does "monthly deal" refer to? Where do I find all the CVS offers?

Thanks. Jaime

The best advice I can offer is to vistit Crystal's blog, I will give the link at the end. CVS has a weekly sale flyer and a monthly sale flyer. At my store the April monthly book is at the front checkout counter. It offers a lot of great sales with extra care bucks. Since you are new you will definitely want to read Crystal's blog. Got here and look on the right side of the page. You will see CVS 101 under the header, "Beginners Start Here". Crystal also gives beginner deal scenerios every week that could help you get started. E-mail me if you have any more questions, I am glad to help!
