“Hey guys, I’m at CVS and I saw a sign said if you find an expired item, they’ll give me a $3.50 off coupon.”

This is a crazy good deal! You only have to find 3 expired items to get more than $10 off to put towards your next CVS purchase.

And Emily said she knew just where to look. “I come to the protein bar section cause I’m trying to find Celsius packets right now for my trip.”

Not to yuck anyone’s yum, but be careful with Celsius, everyone! They have as much caffeine as a Red Bull and a Monster combined. Give your heart a break!

“I start searching through all the bars. I’m like.. These quest blueberry muffin bars. No one buys these!”

Seems like she has her system down. I mean, how many times do you see something in a store and think “Who is actually buying these?”

And lo and behold, she was right! “So I check it, and this is expired in November! I’m gonna go get my $3.5o off coupon.”

And when she went up, even the cashier seemed shocked at the deal! “Okay, sure. Let me just call my manager, because I cannot do it.”

But if we’ve learned anything from these deal-finding TikToks, its that the squeaky wheel gets the oil.

And Emily’s hack was definitely worth it, because she ended up getting her Celsius packets completely for free!
