CVS 102812

Wow – I JUST brought back the fun “Frugal on Friday” and not even a week later I go and mess up the schedule. What the heck!? I want you to be able to use some of the same coupons I did, as the expire 10/31 and I need to tell you NOW and not on Friday.

This is my shopping trip I told you I had planned out on Friday, I did a lot of coupon stacking and it payed off. What really paid off is that I went through my gift card bucket and found a $5 CVS Gift Card… which means I really did not pay ANYTHING for the above photo, woot!

What did I get, you question?

4 Herbal Essence Shampoo and Conditioners @ $2.99 = $11.96 – 2 B1G1 [took off $6.99 and $4.97]= $0

Olay Regenerist Moisturizer $20.99 – $5.00/1 = $15.99

Covergirl Lip Perfection $7.99 - Buy Olay Regenerist Moisturizer get Covergirl Lip Perfection [took off $8.99] = -$1.00 MM! 

2 Covergirl Outlast lipstick @ $11.29 = $22.58 – B1G1 50% $5.65 - 2 $2.00/1 – 2 $2.50/1 CVS = $7.93 or $3.96 each [Earn $10 ECB WYB $30]

2 Revlon Nail Polish @ $5.79 = $11.58 – 2 $1.00/1 = $9.58 or 4.79 each [Earn $7 ECB WYB 2]

Total $32.79

Total Spent $3.79 [used $10/$50, $5.00 Beauty Club and $14 ECB]

Total Saved $77.60 or 95% [Earned $17 ECB + $15 MIR]

PS – My $1.00/1 Revlon Color Cosmetics coupons beeped when they were scanned for my nail polish and the cashier thought he would not be able to take the coupon because it says color cosmetic and the picture is of lipstick or face product, I don’t remember. That’s when I pulled out old trusty:Revlon Color Cosmetic - Nail Polish

Look, when you coupon, you can never be too prepared! I believe this coupon is from 8/19 or 8/26; it is expired, but it works for proof that Revlon considers their nail polish to be a color cosmetic. Feel Free to take my pic with you!
