CVS: Free Colgate Optic White ? – I Don’t Know What To Think

CVS is offering a $1/1 Colgate Optic White coupon right now. This coupon is very confusing though. The barcode starts with a number 5 which leads me to believe that it is a manufacturer coupon. HOWEVER, it has no remittance information which leads me to believe it’s a store coupon. So what is it? I am not sure, but other bloggers have contacted CVS and they are saying this is a CVS store coupon. If indeed it is a store coupon you can do this deal:

Colgate Optic White Toothpaste, $3.49
Use one $1/1 Colgate Optic White CVS Coupon
Use one $1/1 Colage Optic White from  8/28 SS insert
Pay $1.49 and get back on $1.50 ECB
Free after coupons and ECBs

But I can tell you that this “CVS coupon” will beep at the register when you try to use it with the insert coupon.  So, I am utterly confused about this coupon.  What do you guys think?

Thanks, Living Rich with coupons!

    Hmm…well I’m still unsure of which it actually is. BUT since CVS is saying this is a store Q, I would go with that. I wouldn’t try the deal without a print out of one of these emails though! If it doesn’t say “store” coupon then none of my stores would take it without a higher up saying its fine, they would say it’s indeed a manufacture Q!.

    It says that it is redeemable at CVS instore only.

    Guess depends on how much ya want to save, hassle factor, and your local store!

    When I printed mine it says cvs pharmacy and not manufacture at the top. Good enough for my store.

    I tried to stack this printable cvs q along with a q for the optic white I got in my Allure. the self checkout wouldn’t work both, and the cashier who came to help also tried and the machine wouldn
    t take both….wondering if anyone else had problems.

    • Liz, you had problems because the CVS coupon starts with a number 5 which makes the register think it is a manufacturer coupon. That’s why it beeps when you try to use it with another manufacturer coupon.

    I printed this Q out before checking to see if it was in the 8/28 SS. Am I the only one that didn’t get a Q in the insert?

    When you print it out it says in the black box CVS Store Coupon (or something like that)…which means it’s an in store coupon and you can stack it with your $1 off manufacturer coupon. Also you can get 2 (providing you have two of each coupon, CVS and MC) in the same transaction and still get a $3 ECB ($1.50 for each tube)…… = FREE TOOTHPASTE OR TOOTHBRUSHES! Did this one yesterday at my local CVS….the computer didn’t like it but they accepted it, had to do it manually….they’ve also been having trouble with the suave shave gel stacking coupons as well…CVS doesn’t like their own coupons lmao…

    Went to CVS last night and didn’t have any problems stacking both the CVS coupon with the mfg. Q.
