CVS 5/21 (Maureen) – $7.26 Profit on $155.45 in Merchandise (104.7% Savings)

NEVER MISS A HOT DEAL! SUBSCRIBE TO OUR DAILY EMAIL NEWSLETTER!

My mother received another $10/$50 coupon at the end of her receipt last Sunday, so I put together a trip for her.  The St. Ives body wash deal is probably the best deal in the ad, but I don’t have enough coupons left for both of us, and I got a $2/$6 body wash/bar soap coupon from the Red Coupon Machine, so I am going to get the deal on my card.  I still managed to get her some stellar deals with products she and my father will use (unlike last week’s cosmetic deals, which are destined to become stocking stuffers for their granddaughters next Christmas).  Please note that the Simple coupon has a limit of two per shopping trip, but not a limit of two per day.  I got four Simple products in the morning, then returned in the late afternoon to buy two additional Simple products to complete the promotion.

THREE SIMPLE WIPES, on sale Buy One, Get One 50% Off $7.79 ($11.68 for every two Simple items with the sale)
THREE SIMPLE CLEANSERS, on sale Buy One, Get One 50% Off $7.79 ($11.68 for every two Simple items with the sale)
ONE ENLITE SUPER FACE ANYTIME BEAUTY REFRESHER, Clearance $2.99 (reg. $14.99)
Get $10 Extrabucks when you buy $30 in select Vaseline, Simple or Pond’s Products (limit 1)
Used one $4/$14 facial care CVS store coupon from Red Coupon Machine (for some, not all)
Used one $1/1 Caress, Dove Personal Wash, Dove Men Personal Wash, Pond’s, Simple, St. Ives, Vaseline or Axe Personal Wash CVS Manufacturer printable coupon (must take quiz)
Used three Buy Simple Cleanser, Get Simple Wipes Free Coupon 5-14-17 RP; Includes Wipes, 25 ct Only; Maximum Value $7.99; Excludes Trial and Travel Size; Maximum of 2 Identical Coupons In Same Shopping Trip (exp 05/28/17) (cashier deducted $7.79)
Price at register $9.36, but received $10 Extrabucks
Net price for all: Free plus $0.64 profit!
Note: To get this deal, you need a coupon-friendly cashier to ring up a wipe first and a cleanser second for each set (I think that’s what she did anyway because the wipes are full price on my receipt).  The wipes are free with the coupon, and you want to be sure the wipes ring for full price and the cleanser for half price. Also, the BOGO 50% sale will take 50% off the lowest price item in a set, so the cleanser and wipes have to be the same regular price.  I saw at one local CVS that the cleansers were $8.29 and the wipes were $6.49.  I would not have been able to get the deal in that store.  I went to a store where the wipes and cleansers are both regularly priced $7.79.
Note 2: If you get the $4/$14 facial care CVS coupon, note that it does not include facial wipes, so I bought a clearanced facial product to have enough to use the CVS $4/$14 facial coupon in my first Simple transaction when I bought two wipes and two cleansers.  I used the $1/1 printable CVS coupon in the second transaction when I bought one wipe and one cleanser.

Price at register $4.54, but received $1.50 from ibotta
Net price for all: $3.04 ($1.52 each)!
Note: Both bags had a sale sign for BOGO 50%, but they rang up full price for each.  The second store I checked did not have sale tags, so I think the store I bought them in had not pulled old sale tags.  I didn’t notice until I was typing the trip, but my father eats these, and I don’t want to deal with a return, so I am just chalking this up to a lesson learned (scan all UPCs at the kiosk to verify a sale).

Beauty Club Extrabucks: This week, she bought $53.03 in products that qualify for Beauty Club (get $5 Extrabucks for every $50 spent on qualifying products).  You may recall that she had $47.85 toward the Beauty Club last week, but since she didn’t break $50 last week, I did not give her credit for Beauty Bucks.  With last week and this week combined, she earned $100.88 toward the Beauty Club and will receive $10 Extrabucks in a few days, so I am giving her the $10 credit in this trip.  The extra $10 is factored into the final tally along with the $10 from the $10/$50 total order coupon (an extra $20 for the trip in addition to coupons, Extrabucks, and rebates listed with the items purchased).

Retail value: $155.45
Net price paid (not including tax): $7.26 profit
Savings Rate: 104.7%

  1. on your moms card you said three simple coupons were used. but you said before that you could only use two .thank you

    • Maureen says:

      I said I could only use two per trip, so I used two in the first shopping trip and the third in a second shopping trip later that day.

  2. Ken from Philly says:

    Isn’t there a Checkout51 cash back for $.75/ea. for the above L’Oreal products?

    • Maureen says:

      No coupons allowed in the CO51 rebate.

      • As an FYI – – the resets on Ibotta, for the most part are in 3’s. So it is highly likely you will get another L’Oreal reset. Fingers crossed 🙂

        • Maureen says:

          Yes, I used to pretty much count on at least two resets, but I don’t always get them. My $2/1 Scrubbing Bubbles never reset at all. And I know better than to expect resets on super high-value rebates, like the free Yoplait Dippers and custard-style yogurts.

  3. Carolyn says:

    I always love your CVS write-ups, Maureen. Thank you!! 🙂

  4. Where are the coupons located for getting the free Simple wipes when you buy cleanser?

    • Maureen says:

      B1G1 Simple Wipes FREE wyb (1) Simple Cleanser or Moisturizer – 5-14-17 RP; Includes Wipes, 25 ct Only; Maximum Value $7.99; Excludes Trial and Travel Size; Maximum of 2 Identical Coupons In Same Shopping Trip (exp 05/28/17)

      You can always find a coupon using the coupon database on the main page of the site.

  5. So you all know CVS is doing away with multiple sales.

  6. Hi, I had a small moneymaker on Nexium if anyone else wants to do the deal: At CVS, Nexium 24HR 42 Count is $28.49. There is a $7 manufacturer coupon 5/21 RP, I had $8 off on my CVS APP, you receive $5 in ExtraBucks, SavingStar has $1, $2, and$7 rebates making this a $1.51 moneymaker.

    • Maureen says:

      Woohoo! Love those deals, and THANK YOU for telling us about this one. I saw the $7/1 MQ and activated the SavingStar, but I didn’t get the $8 CVS
      coupon.
