Drugstore Deals

This is something I should probably just post on NailSparks* but I wanted to post it here just…because. I’d rather maintain one blog than two right now.

So I folow this website – Nouveau Cheap – and one of the best parts about that website is that G actually scours all the drugstore flyers (and at this point, people also comment to her about deals they see) and puts together a list of applicable coupons, sales, and beauty/makeup deals she sees. She even divides them up by CVS/Walgreens/Rite Aid, and then if there are any Target only or Walmart only things, she’ll list those too. 

So this week, the list of deals can be found here if you want to take advantage of a great deal yourself.

The two deals I’m taking advantage of this week:

  1. Simple Skincare is buy one, get one free (BOGOFREE) at Walgreens. There is also a $2 off coupon available that doesn’t apply to wipes, but imma try to use it anyway. Since cross-linking, I can’t get water in my eye area until the epithelial layer grows back, so I have been using makeup remover wipes morning/evening to cleanse my face instead. I just ran out of the Alba ones, so I’m going to stock up and take advantage of the BOGOFREE deal.
  2. Since I just wrote about Walgreens, I remembered another good deal for this week. I’m not buying any but the entire Disney Villains collection (the eyeshadow palettes by ELF, the makeup bags by SoHo, the Ardell lashes, etc) are all 25% off this week. If you were interested in an eyeshadow “look book” by ELF, thsi means you get a 6-eyeshadow compact, liquid eyeliner, pencil eyeliner, mascara, and a lipgloss for only $7.50. Somebody is bound to like that deal, right?
  3. Revlon pressed powder! Rite Aid is the better deal if you want multiple products – you get $5 back if you spend $15 on Revlon. BUT I have a 25% off coupon and $3 extrabucks from CVS. I also have a $3 off coupon and a $2 off coupon. So stacking all those means I’m going to walk out with a damn cheap pressed powder. I’ll update later to say just how cheap. I want the powder from the nearly naked line, but the $2 coupon doesn’t apply to that. Both coupons would apply to the powder from the colourstay line, but that one isn’t as good. I’m going to try to use both on the nearly naked one but buy the other one if I must.
    Update October 7 – I used the 25% off coupon first, then stacked on the $3 and $2 coupons – both applied to my purchase of the Revlon Nearly Naked pressed powder in shade Medium Deep. My total out of pocket cost was $2.96 and I received $3.00 extrabucks on the printed receipt. So net profit of $0.04 haha. 


I don’t take any credit for finding all these amazing coupons so I won’t directly link to them here. Go to Nouveau Cheap’s weekly deals page and she links out to all the different manufacturers coupons there. I found my two CVS coupons in my mail b/c they are linked to my card. If you go to a  CVS and scan your card, it’ll print you any coupons you have available! The 25% off one should show up, the extrabucks I probably earned from buying something else before.
