Walgreens Sinful Colors Haul

First and foremost, I apologize for running late on posting the weekly drugstore sales (I'm actually working on it now--this weekend was a bit hectic and I'm very behind). But I wanted to post about this deal at Walgreens first, because I seem to be getting a lot of mixed information from several of you about this. So here's the deal:

I went to my Walgreens here in San Diego today (2/17), to take advantage of the coupon that's in this week's ad (available in-store).

Here's the coupon that is in the ad for 2/17 - 2/23 for the SAN DIEGO AREA:

image source: Walgreens.com

From what I gather, this coupon may not be available in all regions of the US. So you need to look for it in your ad, or look up the weekly ad for you area online here (you may need to enter your zip code after you click on "Weekly Ad" at the top of the page).

Some of you have told me that the coupon in YOUR area's weekly ad is for $1 off 3 Sinful Colors polishes. As you can see, there's no such stipulation on the above coupon. The only thing it stipulates is a limit of three.

Keep reading for more info, and to see the polishes I purchased...


But wait! There's more! (Ha ha!) When I got to my store, I noticed that the Sinful Colors display had a tag that said that all Sinful Colors polishes are currently on sale for 2/$3. I did not see this sale in the weekly ad, and I forgot to check the tag to see if this is a month-long promotion. At any rate, this sale MAY NOT be offered in your area, so look for sale tags on the Sinful Colors display.

Here's my receipt for three Sinful Colors polishes:


After the sale and coupon deductions, I paid $1.50 (before tax) for THREE Sinful Colors polishes. The full retail price ($1.99 each) would have been $5.97 for three polishes. Awesome, right?

After expressing my joy over this deal, the cashier said that I could do a separate transaction for more polishes, if I wanted to. Well since she offered, I ran back and grabbed three more. I mean, who can pass up six new polishes for $3 total, right?

Here's my haul:

 Endless Blue 1052, Mesmerize 1128, Enchanted 1183, Calypso 1181, 
Beau Khaki 1034, Charmed 1182

Since new Sinful Colors polishes are all numbered in the 1,000s, I grabbed all of the newer polishes I missed out on during my previous "ban". With the exception of Mesmerize and Beau Khaki (ugh, that name!), these newer polishes are all in the permanent wall display now. Yay!

I'm thinking about doing some swatch comparisons of these newer shades and other older, Sinful Colors shades. If that's something you'd like to see, please do let me know!

I hope this post helps those of you looking to take advantage of this coupon this week. The moral of this story is: look at your weekly ad, and check the Sinful Colors display for sale tags. It appears that not all regions are participating in this sale and/or coupon, so good luck to you--I hope you can find this deal in your area!

  2. I'm definitely looking to get the Sugar Rush and Haute Rebel collection, if not more, hoping I find the 2/$3 deal and a pleasant associate who will ring up the coupon correctly.

    1. I am on the hunt for these two collections too! So far no luck. I am going to extend to other drug stores besides Wags and probably use my coupon for some other core polishes that I might not ordinarily buy but may end up being some real gems! Fingers X'd for us both!

  6. This is why I love you and your blog, I would have never known about calypso or charmed! 2 more to the list lol

  7. I wtf'd at the fact "Beau Khaki" is an actual color name. Someone was clearly on their last day at work when they did that.

    ReplyDelete
  8. Do you have any of the colors from Sinful's ripoff of the OPI Pirates of the Caribbean collection? I was looking at Beau Khaki in the store but thought it looked a LOT like Seaweed. Of course, I was only mentally comparing them so I could be way off!

  9. oh lucky you!!!! What a bargain :D

    ReplyDelete
  10. Yes, swatches please! Calypso reminds me of Nicole by OPI "Khloe Had a Little Lam-Lam", and Charmed reminds me of Nicole by OPI "Look at Me, Look at Me".

  11. I love seeing you save on things! Is there a post that goes over specific ways to save at Walgreens v CVS etc.? I understand that CVS has a rewards card type of thing but I'm still not sure how it works. But if could save me on make up I'd LOVE to invest, lol. Thanks for any help! Loving the blog, one of my favorite things to see on my facebook feed :)

  14. Is Enchanted (1183)a new color? I can't find anything about it online and I don't recall seeing it before. I just made a run to Walgreens tonight for Sinful Colors but it looks like I'll be going again tomorrow too!

  19. No 2 for $3 in my area either. Southern, IL, 20 min. from St. Louis. MO, but I did pick up 3 with the coupon, I'm going today to 2 more Walgreens, in my area these stores are so close to each other here.

    ReplyDelete
  20. Yes, please do swatches, G.! No 2 for 3 sale at any Walgreens I went to, but I went to two and they both had the new LE displays up. Picked up six myself, including Beau Khaki and Green Ocean, plus two each from the newer displays.

    ReplyDelete
  21. No SC coupons in New York City ads. I'm not surprised.

    ReplyDelete
  22. Mine weren't 2 for $3, but the cashier let me purchase 5 at once with the coupon so I didn't have to do two transactions. I got some from the Almost Famous collections, plus a backup of Green Ocean. I also purchased Orange Cream from the Sugar Rush display earlier, so 6 total! Yay!

    Can you do a swatch of Charmed? I heard about it on a message board but I didn't see it at any of the Walgreens I went to.

    ReplyDelete
  23. I snagged Charmed too when I was at Walgreens yesterday. Love how it's overall silver but with some dimension from the colored flecks!

    I almost got Enchanted since I don't have anything quite like it yet, but talked myself out of it since they're not on sale here and I don't wear cremes all that often.

    I did find Green Ocean though!

    ReplyDelete
  24. Soon as I heard all the fuss about Beau Khaki I had to rush out and grab it, lol. Still haven't worn it though.

    ReplyDelete
  25. Wow, what a bargain! I went to my closest Walgreens store ytd, but they did not have any of the new collections! Argh.

    I'm gonna go to other stores on Thursday.

    I haven't heard about Charmed, could you do a swatch? I'd love to see more SC swatches too. ^^

  26. I went on a "little" haul this weekend too!!!!! I got the Sugar Rush and the Almost Famous collections and three new core collection; Endless Blue, Calypso, and Tempest. I was expecting to spend a pretty penny but since I was on a no buying decree by the husband I had a little money saved up. Anyway my surprise when I handed the cashier the coupon and my rewards card all the bottles were only $1. Not as good a deal you got but still a small victory.

    ReplyDelete
  27. I got WAY lucky at my walgreens they had a seperate bin of sinful colors marked down to $1 and with the coupon they were COMPLETELY FREE, the look on the cashiers face was priceless. Also, I've been to 2 different locations (in milwaukee, wi) now and bothe have been able to put more than 3 polishes in an order and use one coupon, and still have it discount all of them. Good Luck!

  28. I bumped into this by sheer accident this morning as I am low on my Sinful Colors stash (I am addicted). I ran in to get a couple of new colors. The clerk was in an extremely good mood & told me to get as many polishes as I wanted. After I regained consciousness $5.39 later I walked away with 8 new colors! That WAG Balance Reward really comes in handy for a girl who changes colors at least two three x's a week!

  29. I have a $1 for each coupon in my area! I asked very nicely about limits... the cashier just checked out all the ones I had (which we will just say was more than three) and the coupon took it off on all of them... I am heading back for more. The more I looked the more dupes I saw of CG, OPI, and even Essie and Zoya!! I wish I hadn't spent so much on those higher end ones now, boo.

    ReplyDelete
  30. I finally found 1 bottle of Green Ocean today at Walgreens! I had to come by and let you know because no one else shares my excitement in this!
