Okay... this is a pretty loser-ish post, but I just have to mention it since I just got home from CVS.

PRO: CVS gives you extra bucks and free cash when you check out.

CON: They've raised their prices a BAJILLION percent.

Basically, if you don't have a coupon offering free extra bucks, they are robbing you like mad. I always wondered how CVS can give out free money. Now I know why-- they are charging 10 dollars for the same face wash that I can get at the grocery store for 5- no lie.

The grocery store used to rob you. Now, I can get way better prices there. I actually returned the face wash too after I found it cheaper at Shoppers Warehouse. I have no shame.

I found the same shampoo at CVS for 7.99 that I found at Target for 5.50.

Screw extra bucks. They seem cool when they hand them over but half the time I lose them or they expire. Please just bring back the competitive prices -- I can't afford CVS full price anymore.

I'm with ya there! Or you have to remember your CVS card -- lame-o! I stick with my basic grocery stores. Otherwise you definitely get robbed!

Girl, that is Kroger's whole premise of the Kroger Plus Card. A freaking box of Nutty O's (or what ever crap you pick) is like $4 more than any sane price anywhere else without the card. It's insanity.

I pretty much do all of my shopping at Target now including groceries. It's easy because I can get everything in one place. I prefer Walgreens over CVS.

I shop at Target as well. I love that store!

I used to be totally addicted to CVS, but you're right - they have def. come up in their pricing. I think it's because Target buys in larger quantities that they can sell things cheaper. CVS, Rite Aid, Walgreens, etc - they tend to be more regional & don't have stores all over the country like Target or Wal-Mart do. I refuse to shop at Wal-Mart but I lurve me some Target. ;)
