CVS helping keeping beautiful affordable

CVS started out enticing me to stock up on L'Oreal products by sending me a $1 off coupon on any L'Oreal product through email. The coupon, which expires 10/28/13, can be used either on the Buy $10, Get $3 extrabucks rewards deal this week on all L'Oreal eye and nail or the Buy $10, Get $3 extrabucks rewards deal next week on all L'Oreal cosmetics.

Since the coupon said "all L'Oreal products", it also could be used toward deals on hair and skin care items as well. L'Oreal Excellence is on sale at CVS for $6.99 this week, and it will be on sale next week for Buy 1, Get 1 50 percent off.  There also will be a Buy 1, Get 1 50 percent off deal on L'Oreal hair care (excluding salon). L’Oreal Youth Code, RevitaLift Triple Power, Miracle Blur or Age Perfect Glow Renewal 0.5-1.7 oz. also will be on sale next week for $19.99.

To help out even further with the L'Oreal hair color deals, there may be a $3 off $15 coupon on any hair color or highlight purchase coupon waiting for you and the ExtraCare Coupon Center. The coupon expires Nov. 6. Other hair color products on sale this week at CVS are Revlon Luxurious ColorSilk Buttercream Hair Color at 2/$9,  Revlon ColorSilk Hair Color (excluding twin pack) at 2/$6, and Clairol Nice 'n Easy or Natural Instincts at $5.99 with $2 in extrabucks rewards (Limit 1). Next week Garnier Olia hair color will be on sale for $8.99, Clairol Nice 'n Easy or Natural Instincts at 2/$11.98, and Dark and Lovely Hair Color at 2/$12.

Another ExtraCare Coupon Center coupon that may be awaiting you when you go into CVS is a $3 coupon off of any Revlon cosmetics purchase. This week CVS has a Buy 1, Get 1 50 percent off sale on all Revlon cosmetics, and next week CVS has a Buy 1, Get 1 50 percent off sale on all Revlon cosmetics and beauty tools. Both deals exclude lashes.

The L'Oreal Paris USA site has a $3 coupon for L'Oreal Excellence as well as a $1 coupon good on any L'Oreal product. Any hair color purchase can be counted toward the L'Oreal Gold REwards Loyalty Program. A purchase of five boxes of hair color will earn a free box. Additionally, through Oct. 31, any product code entered will earn program members a free 5 x 7 Snapfish photo book. The RedPlum insert in tomorrow's Sunday papers also will include several L'Oreal coupons.

Sunday newspapers also will have P&G everyday inserts, which will have a $5/2 coupon for Clairol hair color products. The SmartSource insert will have a $1 coupon for any Revlon cosmetic. Finally, there also is a $1.50 coupon on for any Dark and Lovely product.

Hope everyone is having a great weekend. And I'll keep looking for good deals at CVS.

If you like Progresso soup and belong to SavingStar, you don't want to miss next week's CVS deal!

Progresso will be on sale starting on Sunday at CVS at the incredible price of 99 cents per can!  This coincides perfectly with the $2 SavingStar members can get back with the purchase of eight cans, which would bring down the price further to 74 cents per can!

If you can't tell, I'm super stoked about this deal!

Other SavingStar deals I'm going to take advantage of is the $1 back on the October and November People StyleWatch magazines. The October issue is on the magazine shelves until 10-18, and the November one goes up on 10-19. Now if you got a 25 percent off coupon through the mail, which is good on all regularly priced items on the 19th and 20th, you could buy the November issue with that coupon and save not only $1 through SavingStar but 25 percent on the magazine as well.

CVS and SavingStar come to the rescue for breakfast!

One of the reasons I shop at CVS a lot is that CVS generally has good deals on breakfast foods, and SavingStar often has deals that match up with CVS' deals.

This week I took advantage of a $2 back SavingStar reward deal for buying any four Kellogg's cereal, 12-ct. Pop-Tarts, or Keebler Cookies along with a gallon of milk. Since there is a $1 extrabucks rewards deal on milk, I ended up getting the milk for $1.99 after extrabucks rewards, and with the $2 back from SavingStar, the milk ended up being free.

Or, you could say one of the four boxes of cereal I bought ended up being free since selected 9-18.2 oz. Kellogg's cereals are on sale this week for $1.99 along with 8-ct. boxes of Pop-Tarts, 10 ct. boxes of Quaker instant oatmeal and Chewy granola bars, 10-ct. Cars fruit snacks, 8 ct. Rice Krispies Treats, and 40-ct. Truvia packs.

Select General Mills cereals are on sale for $1.88, and there are a few SavingStar deals on those as well. SavingStar matchups for this week include Honey Nut Cheerios (50 cents), Multi Grain Cheerios (75 cents), and Lucky Charms (50 cents).

You can save $1 on the purchase of both Honey Nut Cheerios and Multi Grain Cheerios with a coupon available on Also available on is a 50 cent coupon on Lucky Charms. The Kellogg's website has coupons good on the Kelloggs cereals on sale this week. They include:

$1/2 any Rice Krispies cereal(Cocoa Krispies included)
$1/2 any Rice Krispies, Corn Flakes, or Raisin Bran cereals
$1/3 any Kellogg's cereal
$1/2 any Kellogg's Krave cereal
$1/3 any Kellogg's Corn Pops, Frosted Flakes, Honey Smacks, and Krave (Note:this coupon can be used on Froot Loops and Frosted Mini-Wheats Little Bites, but they're not included in the cereals on sale)

There are some other deals on SavingStar related to breakfast, but I'll leave those for another post. Hope everyone has a nice weekend.
