Today I thought I would share the few things I picked up the last time I was at CVS, which was about a week ago. I got 3 things from Milani and one Nicole by OPI polish.
Nail polish in Orchidia
Duo Sharpener (for those Shadow Eyez pencils I have & reviewed)
Illuminating Face Powder in 01 Amber Nectar
Nicole by OPI Kardashian Kolor in One Big Happy Fame-ily
Normally I would not have bought any of these items since they weren't on sale. But, I did have a $5 off purchase that I had earned, as well as a $4 off $20 purchase coupon that also printed out. I was planning on also using the 30% off coupon that I got in my email--but that didn't work out since I loaded it to my CVS card via my phone on the way there and it had not yet activated (I think that's stupid that it takes so long to activate that way). I was going to get a couple of things that were on clearance (didn't really need them) but since I didn't get to use my 30% off, I had the cashier take those off.
When I did some calculations, I basically got the Illuminating powder for almost free since it retails for $9-something and paid for the 2 polishes and the sharpener.
Have you ever had your spending/coupon strategy shot down at the register?
