CVS stacks coupons!

What does that mean? and why is it good? Stacking coupons means you can use more than 1 coupon for a single purchase. Here's what I mean.....

If you have a coupon from CVS (I found one for $4 off any $20 purchase online last week, my husband found $2 off any $10 purchase in a magazine 2 weeks ago), you can use those in addition to the coupons that print off on your receipt sometimes ($3 off any $15 purchase)

I made a purchase that at first came to $26.
I used the $4 coupon from the internet
+ the $3 off any $15 purchase
+ 4 coupons for $2 each
total $11.00

Then I used my $5 Extra bucks from last week
and $6 from a CVS card I got 3 weeks ago when I had to get a new prescription filled. (see below)

Total out of pocket - $0

How can you get a free gift card from CVS (or Kroger, Walgreens etc)? Periodically there are coupons for new or transferred prescriptions to a different pharmacy. Some people call it pharmacy hopping. For common meds, it is a great way to make money. Read here for help on how to make this work. I've personally gotten $10 at KMart, $25 at Rite Aid and $25 at CVS
