Yesterday, even though it was Father’s Day, my darling husband consented to a morning of playing Wii with his children while I went out to the drugstores. WHAT A GUY! Because I wanted to be a real drugstore wh*re and hit each of the BIG THREE! So it took awhile…
First, to Rite Aid!
I really like the Colgate Total Advanced Pro-Shield mouthwash I am trying out as part of the Colgate Total Advanced Clean Mouth Challenge , so I decided to get some more when I saw it was on sale at Rite Aid. And it didn’t hurt that Rite Aid had e-mailed me a $2 off coupon!
Starburst 67 cents (filler item, a delicious filler item, plus, you know, it gives the Colgate a chance to flex its muscles!)
Colgate Total Advanced Pro-Shield Mouthwash $3.00
Total = $3.67
-$2 Rite Aid Wellness + coupon for the mouthwash that they emailed to me
-$1 Colgate Total Advanced mouthwash coupon from SmartSource insert a couple weeks ago (expired yesterday, the day I used it.)
Total 67 cents, paid 70 cents with tax and got back a $1 +UP Reward to spend on my next purchase.
And then, it was on to CVS. Where I had my eye on some more MAKEUP!!! Thanks to the great CVS Beauty Club deals.
This week CVS has a great deal on Almay intense i-color products. $5.79 and you get back 3 ECB! If you were lucky enough to get the $4 off Almay coupon in your coupon inserts a few weeks ago, you can really actually MAKE $$ on this deal. There is a limit of THREE! Sadly, my region did not get this glorious coupon. BOOOOO!!!! I don’t know why the coupon bosses don’t like my region, but we pretty much never get the good cosmetics coupons. Sooooo, I must rely on my Extra Care Bucks and my wily deal-making abilities.
When I got to CVS, the Magic Coupon Machine printed me out a $1 off Maybelline item coupon, so I went searching for a good clearance deal, and found the nail polish for $1.99. I got:
2 different Almay intense i-color shadows $5.79 each = $11.58
Maybelline nail polish, clearance $1.99
Donation to ALS Foundation $1
Almay eye makeup remover, clearance $1.59 (I am in need of some, and figured why not give it a try?)
total = $16.16
-$1 Maybelline coupon from the magic machine
-$6 Extra Care Bucks from a previous purchase
total = $9.16 + tax = $10.23 and I got another $6 in ECB for the Almay! I also racked up another $15 toward my next $5 ECB Beauty Club reward! Since this deal has a limit of 3, I will probably get another item this week. But I want to try what I bought first. Can’t wait!
Next, it was on to Walgreens!
As I mentioned, I really like the Colgate Total Advanced stuff I’m using! So since the toothpaste was going to be a small money-maker at Walgreens, of course I went to get some more. I purchased:
Colgate Total Advanced toothpaste $3
Reach twin pack of toothbrushes $2.99
total = $5.99
coupons I used:
- 75 cents Colgate toothpaste (got it from a Kroger mailer)
-$2 Reach toothbrush twin pack (coupons.com)
total = $3.24 tax = $3.63 and got back $4.50 in Register Rewards, $2.50 for the Colgate and $2 for the Reach.
That’s makin’ money honey!
That’s what I got yesterday out frolicking at the drugstores! I’ll let you know how I like the Almay products! What did you get or are you getting this week?
