One of the deals this week at Walgreens is purchase 1 participating Almay cosmetic and get $5 in Register Rewards. The best part of all is that this deal is available in the test market – no “in lieu of Register Rewards” mumbo jumbo! That means there is a money maker for everyone!
Reader Jenifer, actually confirmed this deal herself. This week, Almay cosmetics are marked down 30% off (in addition to the Register Reward). First, you’ll want to check out the current coupons available for Almay cosmetics:
- $2/1 Almay Cosmetic Product 3/6/2011 SS Insert (exp 4/10/2011)
- $1/1 Almay Cosmetic Product 2/13/2011 SS Insert (exp 3/26/2011)
- $2/1 Almay Cosmetics Walgreens Coupon in Spring Beauty Book (see Beauty Counter for booklet)
Many items are marked $5.59 and less. So, when you combine the above coupons plus the Register Reward, you can actually make money this week. Here’s how:
$ 5.59 Select Almay Cosmetics
– 2.00 $2/1 Almay Cosmetics Walgreens coupon
– 2.00 $2/1 Almay Cosmetic Product 3/6/2011 SS Insert
$ 1.59 out of pocket
When you net the $5 in RR with the $1.59 you paid for your makeup, you end up MAKING $3.41!!! There are other items that may be priced even lower, making you an even greater money maker. I’d definitely check it out. The only caution I have is that not ALL makeup items are included in the promotion, so you may need to inquire so that you don’t purchase something that will not generate RR for you.
