Save your Pennies, Count your Blessings

Freebies and Savings for the DFW!

Free Makeup, Vitamins and such at CVS January 28, 2010

Filed under: free items — Alexandria @ 5:01 pm

I often read another blog (Penny Pincher) and post info from her blog into mine. This blog is actually really good and I must say I will try her shopping ideas this week. Take a try!

I headed to CVS to score some freebies, but ended up walking away with a different deal entirely!
The Ester-C vitamins were priced at $10.79 at my CVS, so that threw off my math fromthis post. But I went ahead and bought 2 as a completely separate transaction & landed them both for FREE, using my $5 off $20 coupon (which did NOT beep even though it expired on 1/23!)
A Few Other Finds…
I remembered the $3 Physicians Formula coupon from this past week (1/24 SS) and I lucked out by finding TONS of 75% off clearance items in the make-up aisle. That meant a lot of FREE make-up (15 items to be exact!). My nieces love to play with make-up so this stash I am dedicating to them entirely. They will be thrilled!
I also picked up  (2) Johnson & Johnson’s Baby Wash for 49¢ each (after $2 coupon and $2 ECB). My CVS was completely out of the bonus pack so I purchased the $4.49 ones from the regular baby section & still qualified for the $2 ECB’s!
I also stumbled across some Loreal Everpure hair treatment clearanced to 89¢/each. I used 2- $2 coupons from 1/10 RP insert to score each of them for FREE. These were located in a clearance cart at the front of my store – they were not priced so I scanned them. They were regularly $8.99 so the mark-down was 90%!
Don’t forget to use your $1/1 Scotch Lint Roller coupon from the 1/24 SS at CVS. Trial sized rollers are 99¢ so you can score them for FREE!
My CVS was completely out of the Honey Nut Cheerios bonus packs, so those will have to wait until my next visit!
Overall, I did 4 transactions (Shout out to my favorite CVS cashier – Rick!) and paid:
Transaction #1 –  $0
Transaction #2 – 50¢
Transaction #3 – 15¢
Transaction #4 – 10¢

Total OOP: 75¢

Oh…and I scored 2- $2 ECB’s for the Johnson’s, making this whole shopping trip a $3.25 Money-Maker!

The candy bars & caramels were fillers as I actually had overage in 2 of my transactions. My hubby will love the Turles and I have a secret obession with those caramels. Have you tried them? OMG! So yummy!
