CVS shoppers: The CVS Semi-Annual Beauty Clearance Sale is now underway (click here for the "master list") and I'll be doing another update to the list this weekend, thanks to your feedback! Also, be sure to scan your Extra Care card at the red scanner box this week for a coupon for $3 off any $15 cosmetics purchase (this coupon can be used toward CVS Beauty Clearance Sale purchases). As for the regular sales this week, there are some nice Milani and Physicians Formula Extra Bucks deals (see below).
Rite Aid shoppers: I honestly cannot remember the last time Rite Aid ran this sale. Are you ready? This week ALL WET N WILD COSMETICS ARE BOGOFREE. Yes, all of them, and there is no limit! That includes makeup and nail polish (but not Fergie nail polish). Also, we've got 40% off select Physicians Formula cosmetics (see details below). Don't forget that this is your last chance to grab the Video Values coupons for May--click the little red box in the upper right corner that says "show all offers" to view all of the coupons for this month (remember that these are store coupons, which means you can stack them with any manufacturer's coupons you may have).  
Walgreens shoppers: In addition to the Walgreens Beauty Clearance Sale (click here to see the master list for more info), we've got some nice regular sales this week too. First, all Wet n Wild nail colors are 30% off (I believe this excludes Fergie nail colors). And pretty much all Shea Moisture products (bath, skin, hair, baby) are BOGOFREE. And just a reminder  that you only have a few more days to grab the Walgreens May Savings Book (free, in-store). Click here for the full list. And remember that these are store coupons, which means you can stack them with any manufacturer's coupons you may have for additional savings.

SALES FOR WEEK OF 5/25 - 5/31
The following sale info has been obtained from national circulars. I do my best to recap sales that are happening in ALL regions of the United States, but certain sales vary from region to region. Also, you may live in an area that does not run national sales. If you do not see these sales in your area, check with your local store manager for more details.

Did I miss any hot beauty deals this week? If so, please leave a comment below and fill us in (and thanks in advance!)


  1. I have been a long time reader/ stalker of your blog and I just wanted to say thank you!!!! Quick question: was the Blue had me at hello palette discontinued???? Mine was stolen and I would love to pick up a new one since there's a bogo free sale this week.

    1. You're so welcome, and thank YOU for reading my blog! :)

      To answer your question, yes, it has. Here's the official list of everything they DC'd this year. Hope that helps!

  2. I noticed in the CVS add this week Crest 3D Whitestrips are buy one get one 50% off. Is this a good deal for those? I haven't paid much attention to them so I don't know if they go on sale more or not. Any idea?

    1. They run that sale pretty regularly at all three chains. I've seen better deals ($10 off or buy 1 get $15 Extra Bucks for example) but those deals don't come around as frequently. Hope that helps!

  3. Thank you so much.... RITE AID HERE I COME... wet n wild !

    1. Lol! You're so welcome, GP! ;)

  4. I received an Email from the Wellness + program at Rite Aid last night, with a $2 off any Essie nail color or nail care product, valid till 06/08, one time use only.

  5. I used to be able to print redplum coupons but ever since I updated java and firefox I can't seem to anymore. Anyone else having this problem?

  6. I'm not finding clearance cosmetics at any of these stores now. I'm in Atlanta. Are these regional?

  7. I hit up CVS and rite aid a few times this wk. Got some WnW nail polish, lip gloss and mascara. Milani is 50% off. Used lots of cpns... 5 off 30, 3 off 15, etc. Extra bucks were spitting out left and right.

    My favorite was just now... CVS, bought Conair 19.99 curling iron (needed a back up for the back up I misplaced) and a $10 extra bucks spit out because of my selected Conair purchase. I used a $6 and a $5 EB to buy it so now with the $10 the curling iron is free! Yeah!

    No where in the store or flyer is the $10 EB mentioned, or at least I didn't see it.

    I'm so excited. Free is my favorite word.
