The Weekly Drugstore Makeup Sales (1/4 - 1/10)

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

Note: If you are new to drugstore sales and you are not sure how "BOGO1/2OFF" sales work, please take a moment to click here.


Some of the coupons listed below may go nicely with this week's sales, so take a moment to match them up accordingly.

  • Click here for printable beauty coupons (redeemable only at Target). For additional Target coupons, sign up for Target Cartwheel. 


HOT ULTA TIP: All Real Techniques products are BOGO1/2OFF now through 1/24 both in-store and online HERE, and this includes the new Bold Metals collection. Don't forget that you can use this $3.50 off a $10 purchase coupon on top of the BOGO1/2OFF deal either in-store and online. 

CVS shoppers: This week all Wet n Wild products (including the new 2015 products which are now starting to pop up at CVS stores) are B2G1FREE. Also, all MUA Makeup Academy products are 25% off this week, and don't forget that that there's an Extra Bucks deal you can add on top of the Wet n Wild  and MUA deals for even more savings (see listing below for details on that). The CVS Beauty Clearance Sale is still going on (the master list is HERE, and be sure to check the comments section of the master list for newer sightings. Thanks so much to those of you who continue to share your sightings with us!).

Rite Aid shoppers: All Physicians Formula eye cosmetics and concealers are BOGOFREE this week. Also, you may have noticed that for the past several weeks, all NYC cosmetics have been 50% off at Rite Aid. Several of you have told me that you've heard that Rite Aid will no longer be selling NYC, but I have not officially had this confirmed to me by my contact at Rite Aid. That said, it doesn't look good given that the entire permanent display has been 50% off for several weeks now, so you may want to stock up on what's remaining at your store if you don't have any other retailers locally that carry NYC (in my area, both CVS and Kmart carry NYC, but I know that's not the case for everyone). The Video Values coupons for January are now 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:  No exceptional deals to report this week, Walgreens shoppers. But don't forget to keep your eyes peeled for the new Wet n Wild Fergie 2015 display that's now popping up at Walgreens stores. The January Coupon Book is now out (free and available in stores) and you can click HERE for the full listing of coupons in this month's book (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.
