I am not complaining about the staff, it’s just that CVS just doesn’t want my business. I never get the weekly ad and when I go online to see what’s on sale, it’s different from what the paper ad actually shows when I get to the store. Even if I’ve marked the computer to show me the ad! grrrr
Case in point: online is pushing Clairol at B1G1 50% off, which works well with the 3 freebie coupons from the Magic Coupon Machine plus a $3 ecb and the $3 mfr coupons from 4/15 S. Turns out the only deal was buy two and get a $6 ecb. phooey! So I had to figure out a way to get the products pictured for as little as possible. Ended up spending $1.41 after all coupons and gift card , then submitted and collected $12.50 from Ibotta plus my $6 ecb. So I’m not too bummed out 🙂
First of all, it’s a one time only deal – boo! Bought four L’Oreal hair colors for $32, used two 2/$6 4/8 rp coupons plus a $9 Beauty Club ecb from today’s scan at the Machine Coupon Machine (also got another 2 Free Hair Color Items coupon). $11 subtotal and got the printed $10 ecb which I had them convert to the above card which works for paying nasty high tax.
Even though I can’t get another card, I’m still earning free hair color with my purchases plus Beauty Club ecbs, so I’ll scan in a couple of days and see if I get another Freebie hair color coupon.
Driving back from the dentist when I saw an unfamiliar CVS, so PITA and I stopped in – – motherlode time! Used mfr coupons with my stack of $3 Beauty Club ecbs (but not my one remaining FREE hair color item coupon) and submitted to Ibotta, which paid me back $7.50 so fast I thought there was a glitch! Total OOP before tax was $2.10 and you can certain I’ll have another bunch of freebies and Beauty Club ecbs when next I scan.
Two days ago I got another 4 Free Hair Colors from the CVS Magic Coupon Machine, so decided to hit my local CVS to use them up. Scanned my card and guess what – – a $3 ecb, a $9 ecb, a 1 free hair color item and a 2 free hair color item coupon printed out! Used the $4 freebie, along with a Clairol Root Touch freebie when you buy a Nice ‘n Easy (bought 2 Roots). My subtotal was $3.21 (stupid $3.99 Splat I keep buying with no coupons) and submitted for $10 in Ibotta Clairol rebates. Everything scanned without an issue.
Grab a Rimmel money maker when you buy two eye products and use this $3 Rimmel eye products printable. You’ll earn $5 in ecbs! I’m sticking with the Clairol hair color clearance, of course, but I picked up some sale Natural Instincts because there is a $3.50 clairol coupon plus a $2.50 Ibotta rebate.
Don’t know why, but I decided to scan my card at the Magic Coupon Machine – out popped a coupon for 4 Free hair colors and an $18 ecb! Unfortunately, given all the clearance hair colors and coupons, I wasn’t able to hit that mark, so kept the ecb coupons and used the ones from 3/18 rp. Subtotal was $9.39 and I earned $7.50 back on Ibotta.
I scanned my card and out popped a $6 ebc, a $9 ecb and 2 FOUR FREE HAIR COLOR coupons! Since my last purchase at CVS last week gave me a Buy 7, get 3 Free hair color coupon, so I bought four Nice ‘n Easy and 4 Root Touch Ups, use four BOGOs from the 3/25 rp with the CVS coupon and paid $2.96 plus high tax. I also scanned my receipt for the $2.50 Ibotta rebate while at the register before running transaction no. 2.
Number 2 transaction was for 2 L’Oreal Feria and 6 L’Oreal Preference. Used the $9 ecb and two cvs coupons, which took $36 each off, leaving me a total of $1.52 plus high tax.
Transaction 3 was pricey because I added fancy whole cashews on sale for $7.99 for the 24oz size, plus two clearance ($3.99) Splat color removers which I thought were cool, even without a coupon. Picked up another 5 clearance Nice ‘n Easy plus 5 Root Touchups, used the BOGO coupons plus the $6 ecb, leaving me a subtotal of $21.81. Without the nuts and Splat it would have been $16 cheaper, but hey, it’s a splurge.
Well, here’s some nice new Clairol printables to go with the CVS clearance products I’ve been picking up and posting about. Hope you’ve been as lucky as I’ve been!
$6/2 Clairol Nice ‘n Easy or Natural Instincts This great coupon just reset!!
$3.50 Clairol Natural Instincts
BOGO Clairol Temporary Root Touch-up get one Permanent Root Touch-up
I LOVE stores without shelf tags! I was able to get lots more of known items and scanned a few more possible – lucked out on a couple. My advice is to pull up the posts and enlarge the photo so you see what’s selling for $2.14 and what they’re trying to still get $8.59 for!
Ibotta has lots of Clairol rebates PLUS there’s this high-value $6/2 Clairol coupon. I’m hoping both the Ibotta rebates and coupon reset soon 🙂
Huge savings at CVS.com on men’s and women’s colognes and perfumes – 40% – which means some deals you won’t find until Christmas. Obviously it’s faster to go to your local CVS, but I somehow doubt they have the over 3,000 products available online! Shipping is free at $49 and $5.49 for smaller orders.
