Good Morning Readers!!!
I have some exciting news. This is Sandy, A.K.A. Mrs. Coupon Dad. Yesterday, I went into CVS to stock up on the weekly deals and while strolling through the cosmetic section, I stumbled up something really cool.
Before you begin shopping go to the beauty section and look for these red coupon type certificates hanging around that say “CVS Extra Care Beauty Club Sign Up” or click here to sign up for the CVS Extra Care Beauty Club. Tear off one and take it to the cashier with your Extra Care Card. The cashier will scan the both of them and you will get a Extra Buck that gives you 10% off your beauty purchase for enrolling!! (you only have 3 days to use the 10% off so plan ahead a little). It gets better. CVS has a lot of their cosmetic marked down 50% to 75% off. So that means you can get some great stuff for 60% to 85% off with your 10% off Extra Buck. Oh, and did I mention many brands have Buy 1 get 1 50% off. Plus, add coupons on top of those savings and you are going to get some amazing deals.
Here’s an example of what I got:
I got a Neutrogena Lipstick regular price $12.99 and another regular price $9.97. Both are marked 50% off making them now $6.49 and $4.89. I am going to get the second one 50% off because of the sale. Making them $6.49 and $2.45. I have 2 coupons to use for $3 off 1 and $2 off the other making them now $3.49 and $.45. I am going to add my 10% off Extra Buck saving me $.40, more making the grand total $3.54 for both lipsticks or $1.77 each. The original price was $22.96 for both, saving me $19.42.
The Extra Care Beauty Club also offers you $5 in Extra Buck every time you spend $50 on Beauty purchases and you get $3 Extra Bucks on your birthday!!
So don’t forget to sign up so you can save even more.
Oh, BTW my shopping trip total was $253.72. After coupons and Extra Bucks my total was $60.44 saving me $193.28!!!! Our oldest daughter was even impressed with all of the stuff I got for $60 and do you know how hard it is to impress a 16 year old? Only reason it was even $60 is because I picked up two BIG things of toilet paper and a few other things that were a great deal but you normally can’t get almost free.
