Target Pantene/Fructis shopping

9e0fda4d-ee69-4dd1-b01f-0e3d6ad38fde

Sadly, Target was almost wiped out on Pantene Expert (40% Cartwheel), but at least regular Pantene has a 15% Cartwheel!  Twelve Pantene, various shampoos, conditioners and styling products plus six Fructis leave-in conditioners.  Subtotal was $36.70 and I got $30 in gift cards (4 for Pantene and 2 for Fructis).

.32 bars of Neutrogena @ Target

Didn’t think this would work, but it does!  Buy only three of the $1.99 Neutrogena facial bars and get a $5 gift card.  I bought these six, paid $11.89 with other gift cards and got back two $5 cards.  Some areas got a $2/2 any Neutrogena products coupon, but here in Chicagoland we’re buying coupon-free!

Target: almost-free Pantene & cheap Purex

Target is running their Spend $20 get a $5 gift card promo on the usual beauty and personal care items (coupon in sales ad and/or text BEAUTY to 827438).  I bought Pantene ’cause each set of three gets you another $5 gift card.  Pantene Expert also has a 40% off Cartwheel and the May P&G has $5/3 (shampoo & conditioners + one styler), $1 and $1.50 (Expert) coupons.  Buying $4.99 items and using a $5/3 and 3 $1 coupons, you’ll pay $15.95 and get $15 in gift cards.  If you’re looking for strictly shampoo and conditioner, the $6.99 sizes generate the $5 gift card and there’s a 15% Cartwheel as well.

Purex was $6.99 less a $3/2 printable, a $5 gift card wyb two and the $1 SavingStar rebate, so each bottle was $2.49 for a 150 oz size versus the usual 50 oz bottles from CVS and Walgreens I’ve got stacked in the basement.
