I Recieved The New CVS Ad Today

The local paper comes out every Wednesday. Yes, it only comes once a week! Anyway, I had been wondering how the ad's delivery schedule would work. Starting this week my CVS ads will run Friday to Thursday. I got my answer today. I received the Aug 15-Aug 21 ad! I will be receiving my new CVS circular two days ahead of time. Before this, I was getting a 4 day old CVS ad in the weekly paper. I hope no one actually waited that long to look at it. By then everything you want might be gone!

Here's a couple of samples of the new format. It's a bit hard to notice the Extra Care Bucks at first.....But, I will like the advantage of having a few days to look it the ad before the sale starts. I'm a "hard copy" visual kinda gal. I'd rather look at the real ad, not a scanned version online. I'm weird I know. :)

One possible disadvantage is that the coupons come out in the middle of the ad. Although that is true for grocery stores as well. With CVS it will be a toss up between going early and finding what you want in stock OR waiting for the new set of coupons on Sunday hoping to score a better deal. I guess they are making the "game" more interesting!! CVS also points out that we can now "shop all weekend". That is a huge plus for those working outside the home who like to shop on the weekends.

I'm not wild about the visual format of the new circular, but I'll do my best to get used to it! :)

P.S. This was post 200. Yay!

I am in Mesquite we get our local paper on Thurday so maybe the add will be in it tommorow. Is it totally different from the other states?

Yes, looks like. Dallas is a test market for the new sale schedule and I guess new ad format as well.

Very cool. I guess I have to start buying a Friday paper!

Allie, I did check with I Heart CVS. Same sale, our ad is just presented in the new "hard to read" format. :)

And starts 2 days sooner!!! :)
