Free Shampoo or Product at CVS

Today I stopped into CVS to print out a photo that Nutmeg was supposed to bring to school, except I couldn't because the woman who was using the photo machine when we got there was STILL using the photo machine 15 minutes later.
Not only that, but after glancing awkwardly at my kids a few times, she whispered to me that she had photos to print that I might not want them to see. Yowza, lady!
Anyway, I got some good coupons out of the machine. One is for $2 off ANY shampoo, conditioner or hair styling product. I'm sure there are lots of those at CVS that run $2 or close to it, so you should be able to get one free.
Just glancing through this week's flyer, here are some products to use this coupon on:

  • 3 bottles of V05 for $2.35 -- so two are FREE or three are 12 cents each with this coupon
  • Fruitopia shampoo or conditioner, 13.5 oz., is on sale for $1.99 = FREE after coupon
  • Viologie shampoo is $2.50 -- 50 cents after coupon, or free + overage if u have $1/1 coupon from March issue of Self Magazine

Personally I am running low on styling cream, so maybe I will hold off until next week or so to use this. It expires March 10. UPDATE: OK, I checked and Garnier hair products will be on sale 3/$10, spend $10 get 5ECBs not next week, but starting 3/8. I'll be able to get 3 styling products for free if I use the $2/1 coupon along with three $1/1 Qs from the 2/8 RedPlum. Spend $10 - $5Qs = $5, get 5ECBs back. :-)

I also got a $2/1 coupon for a tub of Huggies wipes, which is nice because those often go on sale for $2.50. And I just HAPPENED to get a home mailer today with a coupon for 50 cents off wipes which I'll be able to combine with the CVS coupon, so I'm hoping for some free wipes sometime between now and the 3/10 expiration date. I'll have to check Slickdeals.net or I Heart CVS to see what sales are coming up.

March 10? Then wait!! Sunday 3/8. Herbal Essence $2.88 each. MOnthly deal on the new Hydralicious ONLY $1 ECB on one, limit 5.

Buy 2 = 5.76
Use $2 CRT
Use $3/2 manq from some recent insert
=$.76 OOP, earn $2 ECB

You can ROCK this sale with that coupon! If you want HE shampoo, that is.

yay! I'm going today to see if I can get that CRT or the $2/2 nuts one.
