Score 5 FREE Products at CVS! - 8/31/14


Don't you just hate when you plan out a shopping trip so well that you plan on paying nothing, but when you get to the store the shelves are empty? I certainly do, and that is what happened to me today! But fortunately they still had a slightly higher priced item in stock, so my whole trip wasn't ruined! Just in case you run into this same problem at your store, I am posting the proposed trip as well as the actual trip. Make sure you check for all $0.99 Wet n Wild items if they are out of the Shine nail polish to salvage your free trip. My store carries a $0.99 Wet n Wild lip liner and lip stick in addition to the nail polish - but all of them were gone!

Note - It took me a few minutes to find these trial sized Biore cleansers. They are in the facial cleansers section on a Biore display, NOT the travel section.

  • (2) Biore Deep Pore Charcoal Cleanser Trial Size, $1.99ea - Buy 1 get 1 50% off

**There have been many deals circling around the internet for free items or even moneymakers with the new $5 off $15 personal care Target coupon, but you will get the best deal if you buy something you will use. I chose to buy 3 of the larger boxes of tampons over 4 of the small boxes of tampons because Target doesn't carry the absorbency I wanted in the smaller boxes. I would have bought them anyways, so make sure to save money in the long run by buying things you will use!**
