Five Revlon coupons in one week!

CVS seems to be sending me a message via the ExtraCare Coupon Center to promote Revlon deals because I've received five coupons this week for $3 off any Revlon eye or face cosmetics.

This isn't a $3 off a $10 purchase; this a straight $3 off!

This week's Revlon sale is a Buy 1 Get 1 50 percent off deal, which means that if you get two of these coupons from the ExtraCare Coupon Center, you can use one on each item! Next week CVS will have a $7 extrabucks rewards on $15 deal on all Revlon cosmetics and tools. The Revlon Eye makeup prices at my CVS seems to run between $7.99 and $8.99 for most items, so you also could use two of the $3 coupons toward the deal next week and get $7 back as well! This is a deal that can be repeated six times.

Have a wonderful Easter! Will scour through next week's CVS ad and see what other deals I can come up with!

Allergy season is almost upon us, and CVS is here to help!

Last Thursday my left eye felt as if there were an eyelash in it. After checking several times, I realized there wasn't. What also irritated me as well was that I had seen in the sneak peek of the CVS weekly ad that there was going to be a free eye drops deal at CVS on Sunday.

Sunday has now come and passed, and CVS shoppers can get free Visine A Allergy Relief eye drops with the purchase of a 30 ct. bottle of Zyrtec tablets or 25 ct. bottle of Zyrtec gels. Additionally, there is a $5 coupon on for any 25 ct. or larger Zyrtec bottle.

There also are deals and coupons for Allegra users as well. There is a $4 extrabucks rewards deal on 45 ct. boxes of Allegra Allergy, which are on sale for $23.99. You can save an additional $4 by using the Allegra coupon available on CVS also has 12 ct. Children's Allegra or 4 oz. liquid on sale for $9.99. has a $2 coupon that is good for the tablets. The liquid is pictured along with the tablet on SmartSource, but the description of the coupon doesn't seem to indicate that the coupon can be used on the liquid.

Claritin users can get $1 in extrabucks rewards with the purchase of Non-Drowsy Claritin 10 ct. or Children's Claritin 4 oz. liquid. The Claritin website has $2 coupons for both products. There also is a coupon available for any Non-Drowsy Claritin 20 ct. or larger that can be used on 70 ct. bottles of Claritin, which are on sale for $34.99 this week. If you bought a Sunday paper and still have the coupon inserts, there was a $10 coupon in last Sunday's SmartSource insert for the 70 ct. Claritin.

Other deals on allergy medication at CVS this week are a Buy 1, Get 1 Free deal on CVS Loratadine, Fexofenadine, or Cetirizine. Those are the CVS forms of Claritin, Allegra Allergy, and Zyrtec respectfully. CVS also has their eye allergy, redness relief, 32-70 ct. single use or 12 oz. contact cleansers on sale at Buy 1, Get 1 50 percent off. Clear Eyes is also on sale at Buy 1, Get 1 50 percent off.

Free items at CVS this week and next to help make Easter affordable

When I saw next week's CVS circular, there were a couple of Easter related deals that made me smile because they help make Easter more affordable.

I remember dying eggs with my daughter with Paas Easter egg decorating kits, which is something I also did with my parents when I was growing up. CVS shoppers can get the $1.99 kit for free after extrabucks rewards next week.

CVS shoppers who make a Easter candy purchase next week will get a free gift as well. The description says it "contains assorted Easter candy and toys for ages 5 and up. Available at register while supplies last."
In other words, get there as early as possible on Sunday to make sure to get one. That also applies to the Paas kits as well.

This week, 7 oz. bags of Gold Emblem jelly beans are free after a 99 cent extrabucks rewards. One can use that extrabucks reward toward a Palmer or Russell Stover Easter rabbit, which are on sale for 99 cents next week, and then get the free Easter gift from behind the counter.

The Palmer and Russell Stover rabbits also are part of a Buy $15, Get $5 extrabucks rewards deal next week on various types of candy. One of the choices for the deal is Dove chocolate eggs. I've seen $2/2 peel-off coupons on those bags that are good on any Mars Easter candy, which also is featured in the deal.

According to Sunday Coupon Preview, there will be a $2/3 coupon good on 8 oz. or more bags of Hershey’s Kisses, Reese’s, Hershey’s Miniatures, Hershey’s Eggs, Cadbury, Jolly Rancher or Whoppers in the SmartSouce coupon insert,. Jolly Rancher and Whoppers bags of candy are part of the extrabucks rewards deal at 2/$4, and Hershey's Big Bags at 2/$10 also are part of the deal. Concerning the coupon for the Jolly Rancher and Whoppers bags, though, make sure that the bags are 8 oz. or more in order to use the coupon because the ad says the 2/$4 price applies to 7-16 oz. bags.

Additionally, according to Sunday Coupon Preview, there will be a $1/2 coupon for Mars Easter products that can be used on M&M’s 2oz+, M&M’s Minis 2oz+, Minis Mix 10.5oz+, 3 Musketeers Minis, Twix Minis, Snickers Minis, Snickers Peanut Butter Squared Minis, Milky Way Minis, Snickers Bunny, Snickers Peanut Butter Bunny, Dove Eggs & Bunnies 4.5oz+, Snickers Eggs 6pk, Snickers Peanut Butter Eggs 6pk, Twix Eggs 6pk and Milky Way Simply Caramel Bunnies 6pk. At 2/$10, the Mars Easter Big Bag of minis is also part of the extrabucks rewards deal along with the Mars bunnies and eggs and 9-11.5 oz. bags of Mars  at 2/$6.

Be back with more deals soon.

Oh, baby! Good deals on baby items at CVS this week.

It's been awhile since I've seen an extrabucks reward deal on baby items in a CVS weekly ad, so I was happy to see one in this week's issue.

The deal is a Buy $30, Get $10 extrabucks rewards on baby items. They include Buy 1, Get 1 50 percent off of Avent baby accessories; all Pampers Jumbo Packs at 2/$20; 12.6-25.7 oz Enfamil for $24; and select Gerber snack foods at 2/$4.

There are coupons from $1.50 to $2 on several varieties of Pampers in the coupon section of the CVS website or on I didn't have any luck finding coupons for any of the other products. However, check your email for a $4 off a $20 CVS purchase. I got one this afternoon.

Other baby items on which the $4 off of a $20 CVS purchase would be useful is on the Buy 1, Get 1 50 percent off sale on CVS diapers or baby care items.

For all of the Huggies users out there, there will be a $30/$10 extrabucks rewards deal that includes Huggies diapers and wipes next week. The links above that lead to Pampers coupons also lead to coupons for Huggies wipes and Pull-Ups. The $4 off $20 purchase coupon is good until Sunday, so you can save it until then. The final piece of good news is that this extrabucks rewards deal can be repeated up to five times, so if you wanted to stock up on diapers and wipes, next week would be a good time to do so.

Extrabucks rewards plus coupons equal lots of beauty savings!

There are lots of good beauty extrabucks rewards deals in the CVS weekly ad, and I've gotten coupons from the ExtraCare Coupon Center that can be used on them.

One of those coupons was $3 off a $10 Almay cosmetics purchase. Not only is there a $4 extrabucks rewards deal on a $10 Almay purchase, but there also is a $5 off of 2 coupon on all Almay cosmetics available on the coupons section of the CVS website. Depending on what Almay cosmetics one would purchase, this has the potential of being a moneymaker deal. I also got a $3 off any $10 Revlon cosmetics or beauty tools coupon from the ExtraCare Coupon Center. There is a $2 extrabucks rewards deal on all Revlon nail polishes, which are priced at $4.99, and the deal can be repeated up to six times.

Another beauty coupon that I saw online that I will receive is a $1 off any Maybelline cosmetics purchase. All Maybelline eye or lip are part of a $10/$3 extrabucks rewards deal. For fans of Maybelline's Baby Lips, there is a $1 coupon for it on, which also can be used toward this extrabucks rewards deal.

Another change with P&G coupons?

Last week I had expected to write about what deals would be available at CVS on Procter & Gamble products since I thought the P&G coupon insert would come out last week.

Instead, it came out this week. I had always used and always people to use coupons from the previous month's insert and the current insert on deals at CVS. However, since the P&G insert came out in this past Sunday's paper, the coupons in the February insert expired last week.

But the CVS weekly ad has some P&G product deals worth mentioning. P&G is repeating its $15 rebate with the purchase of $50 of select products. Those products include Venus, Secret, Olay, Pantene, Herbal Essences, Aussie, Head & Shoulders, Clairol, CoverGirl, Crest 3D White products, Ivory, and Safeguard. Products must be purchased by April 30th, and the form must be postmarked by May 31st.

One CVS deal that will get you over halfway to the $50 total is a $10 extrabucks rewards deal with the purchae of $30 of Pantene Expert shampoo, conditioner, or treatment pruducts. has a $2/2 coupon that can be used on the deal, and there is no limit on how many tines one can print off a coupon from that site.

Another deal is week at CVS that would count toward the rebate is a $10 off any purchase of any Crest 3D Whitestrips. Additionally, there is a separate $10 rebate deal with the purchase of one Crest 3D Whitestrips Intensive Professional Effects 7 ct., Professional Effects 20 ct., or 2 hr. 4 ct. Whitestrips. Since UPC codes have to be sent with each rebate offer, one can't count a Crest #d Whitestrips purchase toward both offers.

There also is a $1 extrabucks rewards deal on the purchase of Olay Total Effects facial products (except cloths and tone correcting), and the ExtraCare Coupon Center is issuing $1/2 coupons on Aussie and Herbal Essences products.

Extrabucks rewards deals on other P&G products include $5 extrabucks rewards on a $10 purchase of Crest ProHealth toothpaste or rinse, Glide dental floss, or Oral-B toothbrushes; $10 extrabucks rewards on Oral-B 3D White Action rechargable brushes; $3 extrabucks rewards on Oral-B power toothbrush refills, a$1 extrabucks rewards on ZzzQuil, and $1 extrabucks rewards 24 ct or 12 oz. liquid NyQuil or DayQuil, 20 ct or .5 oz spray Sinex, or 8 oz. or 20 ct. NatureFusion.

If recent history repeats itself, there may be a $10 extrabucks rewards on $30 P&G products later in the month. Those also used to be at the end of the month, but there was one offered last month after the time they usually had been offered.
