Choose your extrabucks rewards deal on baby and CVS household products!

Even if it weren't a "choose your reward deal", either of the extrabucks rewards deals associated with baby products are the best I've seen in the time I've been doing this blog. Parents looking to stock up on items for their small ones have a choice of either a Buy $15, Get $5 extrabucks or Buy $30, Get $12 extrabucks rewards deal on an assortment of baby products.

Featured in the baby extrabucks rewards deal are:

All Pampers Jumbo Packs: $9.99. $1.50-$2 coupons available on on several varieties.

Huggies (64-72 ct.): 2/$6.

Johnson's baby (13-15 oz.), oil gel (6.5 oz.), or Desitin (2 oz.): 2/$6. 75 cent coupon for Desitin available on Another 75 cent coupon for Desitin and a 50 cent coupon available on the Healthy Essentials website (coupon good only once).

Any Huggies Jumbo Pack diapers, GoodNites, or Pull-Ups: $9.49. The Huggies website has a $2 coupon for Huggies Little Movers.

Enfamil ready to feed 6-packs: 2/$20.

Select diaper rash treatments (Balmex and Aquaphor pictured in ad). $1 coupon available on the Balmex website.

Little Remedies products: Buy 1, Get 1 50 percent off. $1 coupon available for signing up at the website.

Select baby skin care products. Pictured in ad are Disney Baby, BabyGanics, and SheaMoisture.

Having children around requires cleaning up after them, and CVS also has a Buy $10, Get $2 or Buy $15, Get $5 extrabucks rewards deal on their Total Home household cleaning and paper products. Among the items pictured in the ad are wet wipes, garbage bags, paper plates, and window cleaner.

I just checked on the CVS website to see if I had any coupons waiting for me at the ExtraCare Coupon Center. Some of those match up with extrabucks rewards deals. I'll tell you more in my next post.

If you were going to rush out and buy some Coppertone after my last post...

... you might want to wait until next week. Then you can take advantage of an extrabucks rewards deal and a coupon that will be in most Sunday's papers.

It will be on sale for 2/$19.98 with a $8 back in extrabucks rewards. According to the site, there will be a $5/2 coupon on Coppertone products 4.0 oz. and above. With both the extrabucks rewards on the coupon, the price ends up being $2/6.98!

CVS and L'Oreal tanning products also will be on sale next week. CVS sun care products included in the Buy 1, Get 1 50 percent off deal are continuous spray, kids & baby, lotion, and after-sun care. L'Oreal Sublime Sun 1.7-5 oz. and all Sublime Bronze or Sublime Glow will be $8.99. The L'Oreal Paris USA site has a $2 coupon to help out with that deal.

I also want to that I received a $1 off a $4 deodorant purchase coupon form the ExtraCare Coupon Center yesterday that would be helpful with some of the deodorant deals I discussed in yesterday's post.

My next post will be about extrabucks deals where CVS once again is offering customers extrabucks rewards deal where they have a choice on how much they want to spend. I'm glad to see that CVS has this option on some extrabucks rewards deals once again.

I guess CVS wants us tan and smelling fresh...

...because there are several deals on suntan products, deodorant, and body wash this week.

Well, tomorrow is one my favorite days of the week because it's when next week's circular is released on the CVS website and when CVS sends ExtraCare members coupons to use during the weekend. Crossing my fingers for some good deals and a good coupon for the weekend. As always, I'll pass that information onto you.

Hair care deals get better with ExtraCare Coupon Center coupons and more

One of my favorite extrabucks rewards deals that CVS offers regularly includes John Frieda products. And coupons from the ExtraCare Coupon Center can make this current deal even better.

Currently CVS customers can buy any 2 John Frieda, Jergens, Biore, or Curel products and get $5 extrabucks rewards. I recently printed out a $2 off of a $12 shampoo or conditioner purchase coupon from the ExtraCare Coupon Center that I plan to use on this deal. There also was a  $3/2 full size John Frieda products coupon in the SmartSource coupon circular in last Sunday's paper that I plan to use as well. There also was a $1 coupon John Frieda Frizz-Ease serum and styling products.
I also received a $5 off of a $18 hair color purchase from the ExtraCare Coupon Center recently, and it can be used toward the deal as well. Sunday's SmartSource coupon circular also had a $5/2 coupon for John Frieda hair color.

Another extrabucks rewards hair color deal on which the hair color ExtraCare Coupon Center coupon could be used is a $4 extrabucks rewards on any two L'Oreal hair color products depending on the cost of the hair color chosen. There also is a $2 coupon for SavingStar members that can be used on the purchase of L'Oreal Healthy Look. There is a $3 coupon on the L'Oreal Paris USA site for L'Oreal Excellence hair color fans as well as a $1 coupon that can be used on any L'Oreal product. All hair color purchases can be used toward the L'Oreal Paris Gold Rewards program. L'Oreal hair color users can get a free L'Oreal hair color products after buying five boxes of hair color or a $3 coupon after buying three.

Other extrabucks rewards deals on hair products this week are a Buy $20, Get $10 extrabucks rewards on Nexxus shampoo, conditioner, and styler; and the Buy $10, get $4 extrabucks rewards deal on Revlon products includes Revlon Luxurious Colorsilk Buttercream hair color. The $2 ExtraCare Coupon Center shampoo/conditioner coupon can't be used on the Nexxus deal because the coupon excludes salon products. The Revlon Luxurious Colorsilk Buttercream hair color is on sale for $4.49 this week, which would make the purchase of four boxes four cents shy of the $18. However, the Revlon deal can be repeated twice. Since it includes Revlon beauty tools, you could find an inexpensive beauty tool and get $8 in extrabucks rewards with the purchase of four boxes of Revlon Luxurious Colorsilk Buttercream.

Will be back at least once more this week to talk about upcoming deal at CVS.

Extrabucks rewards and other deals on CVS items

This week's CVS weekly ad is only 8 pages, but there are some extrabucks rewards deals on CVS products in this week's circular.

One of the extrabucks rewards deals is on CVS beauty products. It's a Buy $10, Get $3 extrabucks rewards on CVS cosmetics, facial care, hair care, sun care, and personal cleansing (hand or body). Recently I received a $1.50 coupon off any CVS facial cleansing and makeup remover towelettes that could be used toward the deal.

Needing paper products for an upcoming party or household cleaning products to clean up for one? There is another Buy $10, Get $3 extrabucks rewards deal on Total Home household paper products or cleaners.

While the summer months allow for a lot of outdoor activity, they also can bring cuts, insect stings, and skin allergies. To help letting these get in the way of summer fun, CVS has a Buy $7, Get $2 extrabucks rewards deal on select CVS anti-itch items and all CVS bandages, antibiotic, cortisone creams or ointments.

Other health product deals include a Buy 2, Get 1 deal on CVS ibuprofen as well as a Buy 2, Get 1 deal on select CVS heart relief. There also is a Buy 1, Get 1 deal on various CVS health supplements.

Since none of these deals have a sale price attached to the items, it would be worth your while to wait and see if CVS offers a percentage coupon to use over the weekend. I put the 25 percent one I received to good use last weekend.

The next CVS Tips will deal with the hair care product deals this week at CVS. Talk to you later.

Lots of P&G extrabucks rewards deals this week

I need paper towels, and I'm low on Gain Laundry detergent. So I was happy when the front cover of this week's weekly ad featured a Buy $20, Get $5 extrabucks rewards deal that includes both of these items.

Tide and Gain (48-64 load) are on sale for $11.94, and the 12-pk of Bounty is on sale for $9.99, meaning that's all I need to buy to get my $5 extrabucks rewards! Also part of that extrabucks rewards deal are Puffs (95-100 ct.) and Puffs Plus (48-68 ct.) for 99 cents, Dawn (9 oz.) for 99 cents, and Duracell AAA, AA 4 pk., C, D 2-pk., and 9 volt 1 pk. for $3.99, and Charmin Ultra Soft or Ultra Strong 16 pks. for $9.99. If you are signed up for P&G everyday, there are some coupons available for Tide on the website.

Charmin products also are part of a current Buy $30, Get $5 SavingStar deal. Gillette products also are eligible for the SavingStar deal, and there is a Buy $30, Get $10 extrabucks rewards deal this week on any Gillette shaving items. While both Venus and Gillette brands are eligible for the CVS extrabucks rewards deal, Venus items are not eligible for the Saving Star deal. Ivory products also are eligible for the SavingStar deal. Ivory bars in 3-pks. are on sale for 2/$3 this week.

Other deals on P&G brand products include a Buy $15, Get $5 extrabucks rewards deal on any Swiffer products and a Buy $15, Get $5 extrabucks rewards deal on any Febreze products. Beauty deals include a Buy $30, Get $10 extrabucks rewards deal on any Olay facial products, and, as reported previously, a Buy $10, Get $3 back on any CoverGirl face, lip, eye, or Outlast nail polish.

With the exception of the first deal listed, all of these deals have regularly priced items. It might be worthwhile to wait until later in the week to see if CVS issues a percentage off coupon for non-sale items to use during the weekend so that you get even more savings on these extrabucks rewards deals. Additionally, if you were able to pick up a Sunday paper, there was a P&G insert in most Sunday with coupons that can be used on these deals. Here is the Sunday Coupon Preview list of coupons in the P&G insert.

Not sure what deal I'll talk about next since there seem to be several ones that catch my eye, but I hope to get two more CVS Tips posts out this week.

Save even more on cosmetics at CVS with store coupons and clearance cosmetics

I love getting extrabucks rewards back from CVS when I buy cosmetics and getting good deals on cosmetics on clearance, but I like it even better when the ExtraCare Coupon Center issues coupons that allow me to save even more money and when I get percentage off coupons to use on the weekend.

This week I received a $2 off of a $10 cosmetics purchase coupon when I scanned my ExtraCare card at the Coupon Center that doesn't expire until June 11.

I also noticed recently that there were clearance tags on a number of cosmetics items. Even though clearance items don't count toward extrabucks reward deals, it doesn't mean that the $2 off of a $10 cosmetics coupon and manufacturer's coupons can't be used on them and/or manufacturer's coupons can't be used on them.

But if your favorite shade of lipstick or nail polish isn't among the clearance items, there are several extrabucks rewards deals and sales ending today along with extrabucks deals and sales on cosmetics starting tomorrow. Most of these extrabucks deals do not have sale items included with them, so the 20 percent coupon can be used towards those deals.

Ending today (6/1): Buy $10, Get $3 extrabucks rewards on all L'Oreal cosmetics.
Next week (6/2-6/8): Buy $12, Get $4 extrabucks rewards on all L'Oreal cosmetics.
Coupons available: $1 off any L'Oreal products from the L'Oreal Paris USA site.

Ending today (6/1): Buy $10, Get $3 extrabucks rewards on any face, eye, lip, or Outlast nail.
Coupons available: $1 off Covergirl Outlast 3-in1 foundation from

Ending today (6/1): Buy any 2 Neutrogena cosmetics, Get $6 extrabucks rewards.

Ending today (6/1): Buy 1, Get 1 50 percent off all cosmetics (excluding Baby Lips)
Next week (6/2-6/8): Buy $12, Get $4 extrabucks rewards on Maybelline lip or eye products.

Ending today (6/1): Buy $10, Get $4 extrabucks rewards on selected Revlon products. Included as eligible products are Revlon ColorSilk, Revlon Luxurious ColorSilk, and Revlon tools, and the cosmetics coupon wouldn't apply to those. However, all Revlon eye, lip and nail products are included in the deal along with Revlon Color Stay foundation, powder, and concealer.
Next week (6/2-6/8): Buy $10, Get $4 extrabucks rewards on all Revlon cosmetics and tools. PLUS Buy 1 Get 1 50 percent off. Again, only cosmetics purchase would count toward using the $2 off $10 cosmetics purchase coupon.
Coupons available: $1 off coupon on Revlon Grow Luscious mascara. $1 off coupon on Revlon ColorStay Ultimate Suede lipstick.

Ending today (6/1): Buy 1, Get 1 50 percent off all cosmetics.
Next week (6/2-6/8): Buy 1, Get 1 50 percent off all cosmetics.

Physicians Formula
Next week (6/2-6/8): $7 extrabucks rewards with the purchase of any cosmetic or skincare item $7.49 or more. Many Physicians Formula cosmetic items I've seen in my CVS run above $10.

Sally Hansen
Next week (6/2-6/8): Buy $12, Get $5 extrabucks rewards on all Sally Hansen cosmetics.

If you got a 20 percent coupon in the mail that is good today or tomorrow, it can be used on the majority of extrabucks rewards deals that end today and the deals that start tomorrow. The only exceptions are the Revlon deals. While it can be used toward the purchase of eye, lip, and nail products for this week's extrabucks rewards deal, it can't be used towards a purchase of the Revlon Color Stay products because they are on sale for $9.49. It also can't be used for next week's extrabucks rewards deal on all Revlon cosmetics and tools because they are Buy 1, Get 1 50 percent off. And don't forget that on top of these savings, CVS Beauty Club members get $5 back after the purchase of $50 of Beauty Club eligible products.

Make sure to buy a Sunday newspaper tomorrow because there are some good P&G extrabucks rewards deals next week I will tell you about in my next post. And if you use your 20 percent coupon tomorrow, you can save 20 percent on your newspaper as well.
