CVS shoppers: . Lots of nice Extra Bucks deals on makeup this week (see details below). Also, in case you missed it last week, the CVS Semi-Annual Beauty Clearance Sale is in full swing and, as always, I've got a master list HERE which I will be updating shortly with new sightings reported by you (thank you SO much to everyone who has left comments on that post--you are helping so many of us with your tips!). 

Rite Aid shoppers: The beauty clearance deals that we're seeing at CVS and Walgreens have now landed at Rite Aid as well (I'll be doing a post with some reader-submitted pics later today). Also, there's a nice little deal on Sephora gift cards this week (details below). The Video Values coupons for November are up--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, for even more savings). 

Walgreens shoppers: Select Wet n Wild products are still 25-30% off for the third week in a row, so this is obviously a month-long sale (check out the Walgreens site HERE for examples). The Walgreens beauty clearance sale is still underway--click here for pics and info. Please note that there are many other products/brands on clearance not featured in that post, so definitely look around the store for those orange "last chance" signs. The November Coupon Book is available (free and available in stores). Click HERE for a full listing of November's coupons (don't forget that you can stack those coupons with any manufacturer's coupons you may have, for even more savings). 


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 was at Rite Aid yesterday and they had all NYC cosmetics 50% off (no BOGO required)

  2. I saw the NYC cosmetics for 50 percent off, too, at my local Rite Aid.

  3. If you don't mind my asking since I know you're a local SD girl like me, which area did you see the CVS beauty clearance sales in?? I live in North County & none of the multiple CVS stores I've been to are having any sales! So frustrating! But I'll drive if I have to. Haha

    1. I'm in MD, and I didn't think that mine were taking part either. But I took the list that G posted on here, found the items I wanted, and scanned them at the price checker...sure enough, they were on clearance! It's a little time consuming, but you can still get what you want for less :)

    2. Good tip! I'll have to try that.:)

  4. I feel you! I live in Stamford, CT and have been to 13 local CVS over the weekend and none of them has any of the beauty clearance sales! I wish there was a list with all the participating stores.

  5. I got a coupon 7$ off 17$ revlon beauty purchase from the couoon box was able to use it while it's bogo this week 😬
    I'm in the Bronx area n no cvs beauty clearance here either hoping rite aid has it on clearance ! Checking this week

  6. I work at Walgreens and I always get dibs on the make up clearance. Right now there's a clearance on the Covergirl Lipsticks, Revlon Colorburst lipgloss, and a bunch of other stuff!

  7. NYC does have a 50% off!! Loving that sale! :))
