cvs will honor out of date cvs coupons…if the cashier gives you a problem call the manager if the manager wont take the coupon call the corp office

CVS should NOT honor expired coupons!! You people are the reason for so much fraud and scams in the store. If a Coupon is EXPIRED it is EXPIRED and the store is under NO obligation in honoring expired coupons.

Other stores won’t accept expired coupons, why suddenly would CVS? Because they don’t! It has a date on it for a reason and if you don’t use the coupon during it’s date that’s too bad! Other-wise CVS would print coupons without expiration dates on them. Cashiers aren’t going to loose their jobs because folks like u want to start thieving from the store. CVS does not accept EXPIRED coupons and neither do other places. Don’t use the coupon in-time too bad!

Your also part the “I get an item” free crowd that comes into these stores too. Nothing in life is for free. If a coupon is expired, it is expired and the stores will not and should not honor an expired deal. Whoever has said CVS accepts expired coupons was probably some customer that got linentancy from a buffoon manager, and it spread and now everyone thinks CVS is suppose to honor expired coupons.

I don’t know where folks like this are getting their facts from but they need to re-check cvs’ store policies. And none of them include accepting “expired” coupons. I know some of you will wait for months for an old coupon you’d never use, then suddenly come into the stores and try to use your month old or two month old coupons. HA!

With bully tactics. It will not work has never work and if you try to get some cashier to force-honor your expired coupons by throwing tantrums or running “to teh managers” guess again, your still not getting it. Once expired, it is expired and a cashier or store is under NO obligation of honoring it. That and your bajillion coupons spreaded out onto multiple cards of your “husbands” or your “sisters” or whoever else has one whom the coupon deal doesn’t even belong to on their card!

Normally as a cashier myself I wouldn’t mind discounts for customers, but folks like you are turning the coupon system into an almost literal scam and when you don’t get your way, you try to bully the cashiers for your out-dated coupons you KNOW you should have used, while completely ignoring the expiration dates.

There are 8 cvs stores that take expired cvs coupons. That is a store coupon so they have the prerogative to do that at their expense. All cvs stores take mf q expired up to a week. That isn’t a scam and if you believe so,I am sorry you are ignorant.

Who pissed you off? There are some scammers but my word, let it go. There always has and always will be scammers. I personally buy for my disabled aunt and my mother.i also donate $20k in cvs items per year to local pantries so not everyone is out to scam. Take a chill pill and go bathe in free calgon.

I had a lady in line at target trying to use expired coupons to get free things. I told her no that we don’t accept them. Had me get my manger, my manger also said no we don’t accept them, the LOD came and told the lady that target doesn’t accept them. She got all bitchy and rude and said “well I’m going to call corp. ” I told her to have a good day. Those coupons where 1 month old. As a cashier it really is offensive if you start yelling at me me about expired coupons.

Wooooaaaahhhh, what a ticking bomb!
If they accept their own corporate promotional coupons who’s what do you care? If the coupon is a month old then I understand but one day old, why not?

You need a Xanax, Ritalin, happy pill cocktail….Geez!

Cvs no longer accepts expired or extra bucks. If a employee is doing this, they are breaking store policy and can be terminated!


11 MYLO36@AOL.COM June 3, 2017 at 12:55 PM

CVS accepts their own expired coupons if they expired 3 days or less ago. The register accepts them, it’s not an employee choice.

does cvs do price match?


13 chris kiaha February 11, 2013 at 3:56 AM

Does CVS price match?


14 chher April 24, 2012 at 5:03 AM

I just noticed that up above you put “Rite Aid” on here, just so I’m not confused, did you mean to put Rite Aid or CVS? :

“Does CVS accept coupons with a greater value than the price of the item?
YES. For example, if you have a coupon for $3 off product A and product A only costs $2.50, Rite Aid WILL adjust the coupon down, so you’ll end up getting product A for FREE.”

I just love me some cvs stores there great…


16 Blingo July 31, 2013 at 5:17 PM

A cashier putting an expired coupon in his pocket supposedly does nothing. Unless they want to be caught at the register putting in a large amount with no coupon then they are stupid. Everything MUST be scanned and the system will NOT take an expired coupon. That is fact. So them putting it in their pocket means nothing but idiocy. The coupon is not even good for any use and the system will not accept it.

CVS ECBs are tracked using your Extracard number and no one but the Extracare card holder can use them. They have your Extracare card number printed on them for this reason.


18 Veronica May 13, 2015 at 3:39 PM

I was wondering if CVS can matchup prices over Walmart and use manufacture coupon and pay with ECBs? LOL, I might sound crazy but savings its a savings 🙂


19 David June 9, 2016 at 11:10 AM

1) CVS WILL NOT accept expired manufacturer coupons. Corporate policy.
2) CVS store coupons are accepted within 14 days of expiration.
3) CVS DOES NOT price match at this time.
