Amanda Grossman, proprietor of Frugal Confessions, has published an interesting and informative e-book explaining, in full detail, how to work coupons from CVS Pharmacies to get free or nearly free goods. Enthusiasts call this the CVS game, and so, appropriately enough, Amanda has titled her book The CVS Drugstore Game: Strategies to Turn Pocket Change into Thousands of Dollars Worth of Free Products.
If you’ve never tried the drugstore game, you really should take a look at this thing. Even if you’re not especially interested in power-couponing at the corner pharmacy, you should see it. The book is a real tour de force.
I knew some couponing aficionados were doing this, but until I read Amanda’s book I had no idea how they pull it off — and do so with a minimum of clipping. The strategies Amanda describes have, of course, a natural appeal to us frugalistas. They would be especially useful for consumers with large families, and also for groups of friends or neighbors who band together to buy products in large quantities by way of generating large savings.
Well worth the $4.99!
