Walgreens Clearance


EDIT - update on the stylers...Sarah was kind enough to let me know that supposedly only the yellow stylers aren't working for the RR's (figures huh?) but the other stylers should still produce RR's even though the circular only says shampoo and conditioner. Hmm, maybe I'll try calling the catalina company and see what they say. Can't hurt right? I can always return them if they say no. The number is available on iheartwags.com (right side bar).

Also be on the lookout for clearanced Garnier Nutrisse haircolor for $3.19 (thanks kc!). There is a $2 coupon for this in the Walgreens Easy Saver book and a $2 coupon in the 12/7 RP. Overage alert! :)

Walgreens
Be on the lookout for clearanced Sunsilk, Dove and BioInfusion shampoo/conditioner/stylers. Its being reported that the clearanced Sunsilk and Dove are working for the Unilever deal this week, so it can easily become a moneymaker if you also use coupons. Sunsilk $2 off 2 coupons and Dove $1.50 coupons were in the 1/18 RP. There is also a $2 coupon for BioInfusion in the WAG Easy Saver book, so you might get some for free. I found these on a clearance endcap, not in the aisle where the shampoo is.
  • 4 clearanced Sunsilk mousses $1.19 each, used two $2 off 2 coupons = $1.09 total, paid with gift card
*Thought I'd receive a RR but it didn't print. After looking at the circular, only Sunsilk shampoo and conditioners work for the deal, not stylers. So, I'm going to return these.
  • e.scen.cia shampoo $7.99, will submit for Try Me Free on bottle = FREE
  • Stamps $8.40
  • Used $10 RR, total was $6.95
*RR's usually say that they exclude stamps, but I've found if you buy another item with the stamps, the RR will "attach" itself to that other item and it won't beep.

I have been buying sunsilk stylers and its worked for me 4 times now. So I am not sure why it isn't for some people and is for others.

I will count myself lucky!

I have been focusing on sunsilk, but maybe I will cut some dove Qs out and see if I can find any of those as well.

Oh and I have been finding garnier hair color on sale for $3.19, so $0.81 overage with the $2 MQ and $2ESQ :)

Nice find on the TMF rebate!

I did this today too :) My Sunsilk & Dove shampoos didnt produce the RR, so the MGR took a Skippy, rang it up 8 times so that the RR would spit out, then voided the trans! WOW - I was floored! She was so great, I have to go back tomorrow!

I have a question on how you calculate profit. When you get a second, stop by my blog & see how you would have calculated the profit from today, if you dont mind :)

**Stylers will work, its been reported on AFC that the blue & green ones definitely do produce RR, just not the yellow for some reason!

Thanks for posting about the Sunsilk. I saw your post yesterday (1st mention?) and thought I'd take a look tomorrow, that can be a really great deal! Thanks for sharing and for posting about the styler not working too. Appreciate it! Warmth, Tracey C.

According to the ad & HCW, only Sunsilk Shampoo & conditioner is part of the RR deal.

kc,
Ooh, great find on the Garnier! I'll definitely be on the lookout for that as well.

Laurie,
Thanks! I went to a bunch of stores yesterday and all of them had quite a few on the shelves.

Sarah,
Wow, what an awesome manager! I bought these in a pretty unfriendly store, so I didn't bother trying to fix it there. Thanks for clarifying about the stylers, I'll update the post with that info.

babynho - sorry, hon but I don't have an email subscription thingie on my blog. I didn't publish your comment b/c I didn't want your email address floating around out there. I hope you'll just check in every so often. :)

Thank you, I'll get checking out Wags on my way home - you always give me the best deals alert!

Oh how sad My WAGS doesnt sell stamps.

frugalsuz said...

debtfreemommy - seriously?!? I thought they all did? I always have to ask for mine and they have them behind the counter.

Justine said...

Thanks for the tip! I'll be on the lookout for this one!
