Good afternoon & welcome to our weekly series of “Couponing Abbreviations 101″ :) Each week we’ll tackle a frequently used couponing abbreviation and let you know what it stands for, so that way you aren’t in the dark when reading this website.
ECB stands for Extra Care Bucks. Extra Care Bucks are the rewards used in the CVS Extra Care program. Extra Care Bucks can be used just like cash on purchases you make at CVS. Each week, CVS runs different promos offering ECBs on a variety of items.
For example, here is a deal scenario that you can do this week at CVS:
