Rapid Lash $39.99 @ CVS,
Playing the DrugStore Game with CVS to score Free Johnson’s Baby Products, Desitin and Clean & Clear
This week we decided to visit our local CVS and play their game. Of course we beat them, and came home with plenty of baby stuff for only $1.23.
It does require a bit of planning and doing simple calculations to beat their system.
Here’s how the deal works:
The Johnsons and Desitin are on sale at CVS – buy 2 for $6 and get $10 back on a $30 purchase (for qualifying items such as these). But with that alone, it was only $24 total, so we bought the Clean&Clear (4.99 each) to add up to $33.98 dollars.
We also had coupons for the Johnson’s products $1 off, and Desitin $1 off, and two $2 off for the Clean&Clear from the 1/08 Sunday coupons
Clean&Clear @ 4.99 each – $2qs = $5.98 for both
Desitin @ $3 each = $9 – $3qs = $6
Johnsons @ $3 each = $15 – $5qs = $10
If you buy baby products at CVS and use your CVS card, sometimes at the end of your receipt, you’ll get a coupon for $3 off a $15 baby purchase. We used that coupon to apply to our transaction, along with a $7.75 ECB from a previous transaction.
Our total after coupons and ECBs = $11.23
After paying $11.23 out of pocket, we received the $10 gift card.
This means, our entire transaction cost us only $1.23!
As you can see, the $1 coupons add up; a few dollars off and soon you’ll be paying only a few dollars. $33.98 seems like a lot when you look at that number alone, but those dollar coupons take off real quick! This is a testament to clipping coupons and doing your homework before you enter the store.
Just a thought: If you did this transaction a second time, using the $10 gift card you would end up with a total of $7.98 AND completely FREE products, plus you would get $2.02 back (in the form of the gift card from the 2nd $10 gift card)! The gift card limit is 5, so feel free to do the transaction 5 times!
Here’s what the $3 off $15 looks like:
Even if you don’t have this coupon, we think this is still a great deal to score lots of Johnson’s baby products, Clean&Clear (to take care of you) and Desitin (to take care of your baby!).
Here’s how to get a great deal on Johnson & Johnson Baby Products (on sale 2 for $6) and the Desitin (also on sale 2 for $6). In order to get $10 Cash Card back, you have to spend at least $30 on your purchase (with qualifying items). Since you can only use 4 like coupons of each item; buy 4 of each and purchase the Clean & Clear to add up to over $30.
Here is the breakdown:
Buy 4 items of the Desitin, use 4 of the $1/1 manuq from SS 1/08
Buy 4 items of the Johnson’s (either Baby Oil, Shampoo or Lotion), use 4 of the $1/1 manuq from SS 1/08
Buy 2 Clean & Clear @ 4.99 each, use 2 of the $2/1 manuqs from SS 1/08
=Retail 33.98 (before coupons)
-Use CRT CVS $3 off Baby Care purchase of $15
Pay $30.98 OOP, receive $10 CVS Cash Gift Card
It’s like paying 20.98 for 10 items. If you have ECBs, definitely use them to bring your OOP total down! If you have purchased baby products in the past from CVS, you should have the $3 off $15 at the end of your receipt from your previous transactions. Otherwise, expect to pay $33.98 OOP; still a great deal in our opinion!
