Wet n Wild sale this week at CVS

I'm not sure why CVS is still doing this but, in certain regions, they don't run Wet n Wild sales in the weekly circular, even if the store carries Wet n Wild. Back in the day, CVS stores carried both Wet n Wild and NYC cosmetics. Then, a few years ago, most CVS locations started carrying one brand, but not the other (in the San Diego region, NYC disappeared and a larger Wet n Wild display took its place). 

But then, last year, stores that previously only carried NYC started carrying Wet n Wild again (and vice versa). From what I'm hearing from a lot of you, many stores now carry both NYC and Wet n Wild. So I don't understand why sales for BOTH brands aren't running in the circular for all regions, but...that's the case.

All that to say that there's a Wet n Wild sale going on this week that I originally missed and did not mention in this week's drugstore sale wrap-up:

I'm assuming that this sale is in reference to eye, lip and nail products that regularly retail for $1.99 (getting two $0.99 items for $3 wouldn't be that great of a deal, eh?).

I want to thank readers Kayte and christyxcore for bringing this Wet n Wild sale to my attention!


  1. I've seen it here in Chicago too!
    Some of the WNW displays at larger stores have been moved and replaced by the Phys. Formula displays. Don't fret if you don't see the WNW display right away.

  2. I saw the display at my local CVS in the Orange County region as well. And they also had the whole Yes To line 20% off with card.

  3. I went to CVS today (3/31) and not only did they have the sale, but items that are priced ABOVE $1.99 also qualify, minus skin make-up and the 8-pan palettes. I got one of the 3-pan palettes ($2.99 regular) and a Megalast lipstick ($1.99 regular), and they were both $1.50 each, which is a GREAT deal for the 3-pan palettes!

    1. I went to two CVS's in my area. One store had all the eye products except mascara(Including the 8 and 3 pan palettes 2/$3. I ended up getting 4 3 pans, an 8 pan palette, a perfect pair lip wand, and the Reserve Your Cabana Bronzer all for $10.01 with a CVS Wet 'n Wild Coupon. Score!

  4. I asked an employee at my store to see if the LE Toppings (nail polish) collection was part of the sale. He just used the red scanner box, and it came up regular price, $2.99, with no indication of being on sale, FYI.

  5. So, I went to CVS today and picked up two 8-pan palettes, one trio, and a few idol eyes pencils. When they scanned them, none of the shadows came up as on sale. But I showed them their little flag things that advertised the sale said "Eye, Lip and Nail color". It didn't say anything about "on sale except palettes and trios." So, they gave them to me for 2/$3 as well.

    I don't usually try to finagle myself a deal, but I think if some of the "eye, lip, and nail color" products are excluded from the sale, then the advertising should say so.

  6. Yep, managed to get 2 of the 8-pan palettes today for 2/$3! Definitely a great price!

  7. This worked great! I bought two mascaras; both rang up at regular price, but after I asked the associate about it, they changed the price. :)

  8. I'm hoping that the Spring Forward 8 pans will magically show up at one of my locations by the end of the week. It'd be great to get them for this price!
