Making money on Revlon at Walgreens

Need makeup and use Revlon?  Here’s a way the Walgreens registers have your back.  The system has coupons attach to an item, which is why back in the day it was so important to find cheap filler items on rolling cats of the same value from one deal to another.  I bought 3 ColorStay eyeliners and used three of the $4 face product coupons from 9/8 S1.  Depending on whether you buy a $8.79 or $8.99 item, you’ll pay under $2 each and get a $10 Revlon/ Almay OYNO plus a $5 RR.  If you want to use a $10 coupon you already have, you’ll have to add a cheap Almay/Revlon item for it to attach to or forget one of the $4 coupons.  Dayum, I’m gonna look good!

Free 6 Premium Photo Card at Walgreens

Get 6 Premium Photo Cards at Walgreens for FREE with promo code FREECARDS and in-store pick up. Code is only valid through 9/14 (they had glitches earlier, which is why I didn’t post).  The Walgreens APP is wonky (not accepting code for many folks) so use the above link to avoid sizing issues with mobile devices.  And lastly, use the highest resolution possible to get the best reprint. Total will be $20.99 before code and ZERO afterwards with store pickup.

very cheap shampoo & treatment @ Wags

Got these four Garnier Whole Blends and four Garnier Fructis products for a subtotal of $4.32.  How?  Well, let me tell you… Whole Blends is on “sale” for $7/2 while Fructis hair treatments were B1G1 50% off.  Used the $4/2 Whole Blends and $3/2 Fructis coupons in 9/8 R2, plus the $1 IVC in September’s booklet.  I also added the 10% off $15+ purchase e-coupon to my account.  NEVER ADD AN E-COUPON to your account if there’s also a paper coupon available because it will mess up the register.  Total hot mess and you will not be the beneficiary of any mistakes. just saying, only add bonus coupons or rewards.

You can also buy only Fructis shampoos and conditioners for even less ($3.99 vs $4.79 for the treatments), but I wanted to try the different hair masks.

Walgreens shopping with expiring RRs

Seriously, you don’t actually think I’d haul my fat ass out the door if I didn’t have an expiring $5 Register Reward, do you?  I remember – back in the day – when the registers took an RR that was only one day expired.  Now, eat dirt, peasant.  Since I don’t really need anything, it’s a challenge to shop.  Bought four Revlon hair colors at 2/$6 ($1/2 Wags digital coupon) and two Colgate Optic White toothpastes at 2/$8 ($4/2 digital coupons); the toothpaste earned 4,000 bonus loyalty points.  PITA saw these clearance Good Health veggie straws, so for 44¢ each, I said go for it.  Paid with a $10 Almay/Revlon catalina and a $5 RR; subtotal was $3.52, so paid cash instead of buying more crap to use another $5 RR.

$10 Almay/Revlon coupon works now

Those $10 on your next $10 or more purchase of Almay or Revlon products Register Rewards we got last week say valid starting 9/1, but they’re already working!  This week would give you free mascara plus a $5 Register Reward while next week’s ad shows a sale on Revlon Colorsilk at 2/$5 after $1/2 coupon.  Note that current Revlon coupons expire 8/31, so this must be a digital ’cause we’re not scheduled for any inserts this Sunday (9/1).  Ad says select varieties and only shows the regular line, if that’s a consideration.

Almay money maker at Walgreens

This week there’s a $5 Register Reward when you spend $15 on Revlon and Almay products PLUS they are 40% off PLUS there’s a $3 coupon in 8/4S!  I bought four eye makeup remover 80ct jars, which got me to $15.08, used my coupons and the subtotal was $3.08.  Got a $5 RR plus this bonus $10 off your next purchase of any Revlon or Almay $10 or more with dates between 9/1 and 9/28.  Whee!  Lots of time for this one 🙂
