Target Tip: I've been told by several of you this week (thank you!) that various Sonia Kashuk limited edition brush sets (like this one) are now popping up on clearance for either 30% off or 50% off in-store at Target. Be sure to scan these and check the price in the system, because the sticker may say 30% off but they MIGHT be 50% off in the system.

Ulta Highlights: The following deals are valid now through 8/1 in-store and online: BOGOFREE all Ulta brand beauty (makeup, brushes, tools, bath and body), B2G1FREE all Neutrogena cosmetics, skincare, haircare and sun care (spend $15 get a free Neutrogena pink tote bag), B2G1FREE select salon brand haircare styling and finishing products, select salon brand jumbo-size haircare $15.99 each. Don't forget that you can use this $3.50 off $10 coupon with these deals.

CVS shoppers: All Wet n Wild cosmetics are B2G1FREE this week. Also, there's another good Physicians Formula Extra Bucks deal again this week (details below). And there are a few nice nice freebies this week (again, details below). And just a reminder: the CVS Beauty Clearance Sale is still going on. Check out the master list of everything that's been spotted so far.

Rite Aid shoppers:  All Wet n Wild cosmetics are 40% off this week! Also, when you spend $15 on Physicians Formula face or lip cosmetics this week, you'll get 1000 Plenti Points ($10 credit; limit 2 on this offer). Rite Aid recently tweeted me THIS LINK to some beauty coupons that change weekly; try to check that link every time you view this post for new offers (some of these go quickly).

Walgreens shoppers: Two Wet n Wild sales this week (details below). The August Coupon Book (free in stores) is now available. Click HERE for a list of the coupons in this month's book. Don't forget that you can use those coupons on clearance items and also stack them 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.
