Rite Aid & CVS matchups

Posted by: WoodElves / Category: , ,

I decided to not keep it to myself how to do the makeup deal at Rite Aid & the Nivea deal at CVS which you can see HERE.

It's pretty easy. I got all the coupons for these deals from my RedPlum. If you're not sure where to get a RedPlum in your area, you can check HERE.

There was a Buy 1 Get 1 Free Cover Girl Face Makeup coupon in the RedPlum last week. Rite Aid has all Cover Girl makeup on sale this week for B1G1 as well. The Rite Aid corporate coupon policy clearly states that you can use B1G1 coupons with B1G1 sales to get both free. I had a little trouble at the store but I had a copy of the policy in my hand and they couldn't argue with it.

All this makeup also helped me to reach the amount I needed for the Proctor & Gamble coupon rebate. The deal with that is if you spend $50 in P&G products between 2/1/10 and 5/31/10, you can submit your receipts and they will send you a coupon book with $100 worth of coupons. It's not as good as a regular rebate, but between the free makeup and the deal I did at Farm Fresh the other day, I ended up with $50 in P&G products without even trying. You can find more information about the rebate HERE.

At CVS this week, if you spend $15 in Nivea products before coupons, you get a $5 ECB back on your receipt. This week there was a $4/1 Nivea women's body wash coupon in the RedPlum as well as $3/1 Nivea men's body wash and $1/1 Nivea lip care. The body wash is $4.88 this week and we got the $3.99 lip care (though later at the checkout I saw some $2.99 varieties).

I used two of the $4/1 coupons and a B1G1 lip care coupon from awhile ago to do the deal. There are many different combinations of products & coupons you can do, depending on what coupons you have. You just have to reach $15 in products before coupons and then figure out which coupons you want to use to get the lowest out of pocket price.

If that is too complicated, just take the $4/1 coupons to Rite Aid, Walmart, or Target this week, since they have the Nivea on sale for $4 and you can get it free. That is what I should have done - it's simpler. :)
