CVS and Walgreens Updates

Yay! I got my errands done before the snow hit! Not only did I go grocery shopping (good thing, since we would have been eating popcorn and applesauce tonight), but I ran into CVS and Walgreens too.


The big news is there is a Walgreens moneymaker on Almay Pure Blends eyeshadow! This is an unadvertised Register Rewards offer for $7.00 when you buy 2 selected Almay products, combined with a timely clearance sale. I first heard about it from CommonSenseWithMoney, and I was able to confirm it today. Here's how it works:
 $7.98       Buy 2 Almay Pure Blends eyeshadows @3.99 on clearance
-$2.00     Use up to 2 $2/1 Almay cosmetics coupons from the 1/23 SmartSource
 $5.98     Out of pocket
-$7.00     Register Rewards
 $1.02    Moneymaker!
If you are lucky enough to have 2 of the Almay coupons, you can use both and turn this into a $3 moneymaker. There were only a few shades left when I was there, so hurry!


I was able to check prices on a couple of those "Buy $X Get $Y in Extra Bucks" offers.

Clean & Clear Buy $15 get $5 ECB
  Use $2/1 Clean & Clear coupon from the 1/9 SmartSource
  Use $2/1 Clean & Clear printable
  Use $1/1 Clean & Clear printable
Prices for most products were between $5.99 and about $7.99. So plan on buying 2 or 3 products to reach $15. With coupons and ECBs, you would be looking at $9-$11 off.
I also forgot about these coupons:
  $5/1 Morning Burst Surge Power Cleanser printable
  Buy one Power Cleanser, Get one refill pack of Cleansing Pads from the 1/9 SmartSource or printable
The Power Cleanser is $17.79 and qualifies for the ECB. So you could do this:
$17.79  Morning Burst Surge Power Cleanser
 $7.29   28-ct refill Cleansing Pads
-$5.00  Use $5/1 power cleanser coupon
-$7.29  Use B1G1 refill pads coupon
$12.79 Out of pocket
-$5.00  ExtraCare Bucks
 $7.79  Net price for both

Loreal Cosmetics Buy $15 get $5 ECB  Use $2/1 Loreal Eye coupon from the 1/23 RedPlum
  Use $2/1 Loreal Face cosmetic coupon from the 1/2 RedPlum
  Use $5/2 Loreal Face cosmetic coupon from the 1/2 RedPlum
  Use $1/1 Any Loreal product printable (Click on "Special Offers" in the bottom left)
I hadn't realized how good the sale prices in the ad were! Both the Infallible lip gloss and the Colour Riche lipstick that are on sale for $5.00 are normally $9.99-10.99. And the True Match makeup runs from $10.99-15.79, on sale for $7.00. So if you were thinking of trying any of these products, now would be the time!

Finally, I have to apologize - the link I posted for the Xtra detergent coupon is not working. It looks like this offer expired. Sorry, guys! Sometimes if I've already printed a coupon, there's no way for me to check if it's still valid for new users. If you find any others that no longer work, please let me know!
