I recently made a quick run to CVS to pick up a prescription. While in the store, I saw that alot of the L’Oreal haircolor products were marked down to 75% off. This turned out to be a “paid to purchase” deal for me, which is my favorite kind of shopping! I got four boxes of L’Oreal haircolor, used two “$5 off of 2” coupons and was given $2 by SavingStar (see my post on SavingStar here: https://pennypinchingpeach.com/2013/02/07/savingstar/) just for buying one of their current products! This made me do a happy dance, since it turned out to be a $2 profit for me to get four boxes of haircolor. 🙂 The point of sharing this? Keep reading…
It pays to keep your coupons with you whenever you are going shopping, especially on items you either use regularly or know there are frequent sales or markdowns on. I know that anything health and beauty related is going to be on sale or put on clearance on a regular basis, so that is a category of coupons I make sure to keep a supply of in my purse. You should try it, too!
Anyone else had any surprise savings lately?
Now back to my happy dance… Woohoo!! 😉
