The Weekly Drugstore Makeup Sales (3/31 - 4/6)

Your weekly wrap-up of drugstore beauty sales and more...

If you're going to use any of these coupons this week at your local drugstores, remember that you can combine them with rewards deals for even better savings (coupons are deducted AFTER you have met the rewards threshold, not before). Also don't forget that Dollar Tree now accepts manufacturer's coupons, which can mean FREE (or close to it) products.
NOTE: If you don't see the following coupons when you click the links below, that means the coupons have already been taken down. Sorry if you missed them, but sometimes they go quickly!

Just a reminder for all of you who love Easter candy: be sure to stop by any of your local drugstores on Monday morning for the best selection of 50% off Easter candies! 
CVS shoppers: FREE Clear haircare this week! Clear shampoos and conditioners are on sale for $4.99 each and when you scan your Extra Care card at the red scanner box, you'll get a coupon for $4.99 off a Clear shampoo or conditioner. Woot! There's also a good deal on Revlon: spend $15 on any Revlon cosmetics or beauty tools and you'll get $7 back in Extra Bucks.
Rite Aid shoppers: BOGOFREE on all Physicians Formula bronzers this week (which reminds me--I've got a few PF bronzers I'll be reviewing this week!). Also, we've got another 40% off Almay sale this week (face cosmetics). If you haven't used the printable $5 off 2 Almay cosmetics coupon yet (link above), now's a good time to use it. Sunday is your last day to print the March Video Values coupons (which can be stacked with manufacturer's coupons, if you have any). and just a reminder that Rite Aid has a free Load2Card service where you can select and load coupons right to your Wellness+ Card. 
Walgreens shoppers: Not a whole lot going on this week at Wags. But if you've been wanting to try the Olay Fresh Effects BB Cream (or any other skincare products in the Fresh Effects line), when you buy 1 Fresh Effects skincare product this week you'll get 1 FREE Fresh Effects makeup remover cloths 20-pk or cleanser. Starting Sunday, 3/31, the April Coupon Book will be available in stores (free). You can click here to see the full list of coupons in this month's book (there's a good one for $3 off any Neutrogena face cosmetic).

  1. Thanks for the info, G! ^^

    1. You're so welcome, L.! Happy to help! :)

  2. For the Olay Fresh Effects deal at Walgreens,it's worth waiting until Saturday to take advantage of the sale. Those items are part of the "Saturdate" promotion and beauty advisors will have extra coupons on that day. (As a side note, beauty advisors get a small commission on beauty-related sales, which other employees do not receive. Therefore, checking out at the cosmetics counter can help out your favorite BAs!!)

  4. I'm seeing in my CVS app that Wet n Wild eye/lip/nail colors are 2/$3 with card this week!

    1. Thanks so much for the info, christy! Will update! :)

  5. That's an amazing deal about Clear hair care! Thanks for doing these posts every week! & Happy Easter Sunday!

  6. The Revlon deal here is limit 6

  7. I was in Walgreen's just now and they have a monthly special on Sally Hansen Complete Manicure nail color for $4.19! This sale runs until 4/27. The sales clerk also had manufacturer's coupons that she used in addition for $1 off Sally Hansen gel color, but the computer accepted them so I got each polish for only $3.19. I was able to purchase 7 polishes so it appears there is no limit! All you need to get this deal is have a Walgreens rewards card, and those are free. I didn't see anything mentioned so far on your blog G. about this deal, if you did and I missed it, oops.

  8. CVS coupon machines have also put out a "Spend $12 on cosmetics, get $4 off" and there was a special Beauty-Program (forgot the name) coupon for $2 off select Maybelline products and a $1 off Maybelline face products.
    The Instant Age Rewind Concealers are $10 in my area, and on BOGO 1/2 off sale so if you stack those coupons on top of the promotion, they're $8/two or $4 each! :)
