Welcome to an irreverent, not-at-all comprehensive blog about my couponing exploits in Montgomery County, Maryland, with some annoying cats sprinkled about. Try not to step on them; they get ever so cross. Also there may be some law stuff here and there, but not too much, because most law stuff is boring.

Moneymaker Physician's Formula with $3.00 CVS Magic Coupon Machine coupon!
There's an awesome $3.00/1 Physician's Formula purchase CVS coupon printing from the Magic Coupon Machine this week for a select few. If you receive this coupon, you can make money buying makeup!
Any overage from the CVS coupon will apply toward the rest of your transaction, even non-Physician's Formula items. So for maximum effect, you could buy a $6.79 concealer for $0.79 and apply the entire $3.00 toward something else that costs more than $3.00 (your $1.00/1 manufacturer coupon would likely have to be rounded down to $0.79, though).
I chose to get a more expensive concealer that I prefer, which gave me less money for overage but also allowed me not have to deal with the manufacturer coupon having to be rounded down. Cashiers can be so ridiculous about those things. Here's what I did:
Bought 1 Physician's Formula Twin Concealer $2.29, regularly $8.29
Bought 1 Vitamin Water 20 oz $1.77, regular price (filler - just make sure you spend more than $4.00 minus the actual cost of the Physician's Formula)
Used 1 $1.00/1 Physician’s Formula Product from SS 3/10; SS 4/21
And used 1 $3.00/1 Physician's Formula purchase CVS coupon that printed from the Magic Coupon Machine today
Final Price: $0.06 for both
$10.06 Shelf price
- 4.00 Coupons
- 6.00 Discounts
=$0.06 99.4% savings off shelf price
+ 0.25 Sales tax
=$0.31 Paid out of pocket
