While I was over at CVS today snagging my $0.88 M&M’s, the Magic Coupon Machine printed out a $2 off any Cosmetics Item CVS coupon so of course I had to go check it out.
I was pleasantly surprised to find many cosmetics items on clearance 50-75% and in fact walked away with a FREE Sally Hansen Denim Blue Crackle Overcoat Nail polish (clearance price $1.85) completely free after the $2 off CVS coupon. There’s also a $1.00 off any Sally Hansen Nail Color Product available on Coupons.com so even if you don’t get the $2 off any cosmetics CVS coupon from the Magic Coupon Machine, you could still snag some cheap nail polish with the $1/1 Sally Hansen Q (my store had the crackle denim overcoat nail polish color and a crackle gold color on clearance for $1.85). The $2 off CVS Q can also be stacked with the $1/1 Sally Hansen Q so keep this in mind if you find higher pricing on these clearance items.
Make sure you bring your binders with you for this sale. If you don’t already, its a great idea to always clip all cosmetics coupons (and personal care items in general) and throw them in your binder (okay maybe organize them instead of throw lol) since there are so many occasions you will walk into a drug store and find these on sale or on clearance. I have an entire stockpile filled with makeup, nail polish, etc. that I happened upon and was able to get free because I clipped my coupons ahead of time. CVS is my all time favorite store for beauty product clearance.
You should also check your coupons from the magic coupon machine for a $4 off a $20 beauty purchase (for Beauty Care Members). This could help you save some additional $$ if you are heading over to check out your stores clearance.
Please keep in mind clearance is almost always regional at drug stores. What this means is you may or may not find the clearance in your area. A lot of times if our Upstate NY area is seeing this clearance it may have already started in other areas of the country or may be ending depending on where you live. Its always worth checking but don’t make a special trip. Call ahead of time to ask a store associate to check for you first.
