I was excited when I saw that Suave products were on ECB at CVS this week for three reasons:
1) I keep my friend Tosh supplied with her favorite shampoo & conditioner, Suave Professionals Humectant, and I had a coupon for a FREE bottle! 2) I keep my hairy, manly, loves-to-shoot-animals-with-guns-and-eat-them brother, Andy supplied with his favorite girly,womanly, feminine deodorant, Suave 24 hour POWDER. That’s right ladies, it’s strong enough for a manly man! 3) I am a huge nerd.
So – since there were also Suave coupons in today’s paper I was even more excited.
And then I got to the store. I went on my way to church, which meant I wasn’t going to my regular store, which turned out to be a major bummer because at 10:45 a.m. on Sunday they only had ONE deodorant left! The cashier said, “Is there any of that left on the shelf?” I said, “No, I got the last one.” She sighed and said that a lady had been waiting outside the store before they opened and came in and bought a TON of Suave deodorants and then complained that they didn’t have more. GRR!! People!! It’s not cool to CLEAR THE SHELVES! I just wanted a couple more! Arrgh. Anyways, I had to adjust my deal a bit. So here’s what I did:
4 Suave Kids shampoos (I love these for my kids and yes I DID leave some on the shelf!) and 2 Professional shampoo/conditioner $10
Suave deodorant $1.25
Papermate pens .99
total = $12.24
- 50 cents Suave deodorant from today’s Red Plum insert
- $3 FREE bottle of Suave (it said up to $3 so cashier took $3 off, wasn’t that nice?)
-.50 off any two Suave Kids shampoos from today’s Red Plum insert
I paid with 6 ECB, and with tax paid $3.10 cash and got back $3.99 ECB, 3 for the Suave and .99 cents for the papermate pens. The Suave deal is a limit of two, so if I can get my hands on more coupons, I might try another store to get my stinky brother a couple more girl deodorants!
