CVS shoppers: I'm not sure if this is only in select regions, but there is a special 4-day-sale this week (10/28 - 10/31) and then another, smaller sale from 11/1 - 11/3. Check the weekly ad in your area to see if these special sales apply; the sales in your area may be regular, week-long sales. The best deal of the week goes to Revlon (this may be a 4-day-only sale or a week-long sale, depending on your region): when you buy any 2 Revlon cosmetics or beauty tools, you'll get $7 back in Extra Bucks. Best part? The limit is six on this offer, which means you can buy 2 products, get $7EB, apply those $7EB to two more Revlon products, get another $7EB and repeat that process a total of six times. This is awesome considering that certain Revlon products, such as nail color, are less than $7, so it can be even better than a BOGOFREE if you play your cards right. If Revlon nail polishes are $4.99 each in your area, you'll get two for $2.98 after Extra Bucks. Also, when you scan your Extra Care card at the red scanner box between 11/1 and 11/3, you'll get a coupon for 20% off your entire purchase of non-sale items. In other words, you won't get 20% off any products that are on sale or clearance this week--just products that are not on sale or clearance.

Rite Aid shoppers: Some good deals on various Maybelline eye products this week (see below for details). This is your last chance to get in on the the Video Values coupons for October because pretty soon the November coupons will be up. There is a Revlon lip and nail sale going on this week (details below) and you can use the two Revlon Video Values coupons in conjunction with that sale. Also, this is your last week to get in on Glam Camp (offer ends October 31st)! Click here for all the details about how to snag yourself a FREE full-size Rite Aid-exclusive nail polish, pink scarf and high value beauty coupons. (PS: I've been told by Rite Aid that the free nail polish will come in the form of a coupon that you can redeem in-store.)

Walgreens shoppers: The sales in this week's ad will run for two full weeks (10/28 - 11/10). In case you missed my post about all of the Last Chance clearance items that are currently available at Walgreens, click here to see them before you head out to Walgreens this week (if you don't see clearance tags on these items, take a few products to the register and ask them to scan them; they might be on clearance in the system!). And remember that BOGO1/2OFF sales usually apply to clearance merchandise at Walgreens, so you can really score big time this week since CoverGirl, Maybelline, Revlon, L'Oreal AND Almay products are BOGO1/2OFF through 11/10 (don't forget to ask your Beauty Advisor if they have any coupons behind the counter for even more savings). There's a Bonus Buy this week for Wet n Wild: all items regularly-priced at $1.99 or more are BOGO1/2OFF (I'm assuming this applies to Fergie items as well but check with your store to make sure). The new Pantene Expert Collection shampoos and conditioners are on sale for $8.99 this week (there's been some talk about these new products on the You Tell Me page recently so I want to be sure that those of you searching for these new items know that they're now at Walgreens, according to this week's ad). Also, there's an in-ad coupon for $0.79 Yardley soaps and the Holiday 2012 Limited Edition Yardley Soaps just landed at Walgreens (I'm hoping they'll accept this coupon for those--if you try it this week could you let us know?). And just a reminder that if you're looking for the limited edition Wet n Wild 8-pans or the e.l.f. Villainous Villains collections, they've both been spotted at Walgreens--check out the maps for details.

  1. ooooh I've been wanting to scoop up the Maybelline Cat Eyes mascara! Thanks G :)


  2. for the aveeno deal, the 2.5oz lotions count and they were 3.79 at my store. use the $3/2 coupons in todays paper for a nice moneymaker!
    $3.79x4= $15.16
    - two $3/2 coupons= $9.16 and get 15 extra bucks!
    even with no coupon it's 16 cents for four tubes after the extra bucks.

  3. I just found an app on my phone called CardHub! It lets you scan all your rewards cards, then displays the barcode on your phone. That way you don't have to always carry around your cards!

  4. Oooh. I can finally see if they have those eight pans at Walgreens for Wet N Wild! I wonder if there will be a Clearance sale on Halloween stuff which there will be. I may have to see about that.

  5. Just a heads up for those doing the CVS Revlon deal. If you do it more than once in a single transaction, it'll print the ExtraCare Bucks (ECB) once but at a higher number. So for example, if you buy 4 Revlon products in one transaction, it'll print out one $14 ECB, NOT two $7 ECB. Warning y'all because sometimes it's hard to use a big ECB in one transaction.

    That said, I'm planning on buying twelve Revlon products in one transaction because CVS emailed me a 25% off coupon good on one transaction. Now I just have to make sure I can spend a $42 ECB! :)

  6. you can use those 20% off or 25% off coupon when buying these Revlon products? I thought you can't use them on sale items? Please explain somebody!

  7. the target coupon for l'oreal products is no longer on the website :-(

  8. i used a 25% off coupon send to me last Thursday on two revlon kissable lip stains. It's kinda weird how CVS sends me these coupons so late in the week, and this deal ends this wednesday. so, oh well. also, my extra care account is showing a coupon for 3 dollars off any revlon purchase. so, i may use that with the 25% off coupon from this thursday to buy revlon kissable lip stain in darling.
