I have to get to CVS today. There was a big ad in my paper telling me that for three days only, the coupon machine will be printing off $5/$20 coupons. It has been forever since I had a $/$$ coupon at CVS. Sure, other people get them randomly by e-mail and at the coupon machine, but I clearly do not fit in their 'profile' of who gets those coupons, because I never do. I miss the days where they would be in the Sunday paper or in a magazine or mailer.
Of course, if I am going to go, it is always best to have a game plan.
