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.

Cheap Biore Face Wipes at CVS!



Hurry on this one before CVS fixes it like they did the 3 oz Jergens last week. This month (for now) when you buy 2 of the Biore Facial Wipes 10 ct you get $5 Extra Bucks. This is the monthly Jergens deal with a limit of 8, so keep that in mind if you've purchased anything for that deal already this month. 

I went to four CVSes this morning (they're all within a three-block radius in downtown DC - overkill much, CVS?) and couldn't find more than three at any one location. Bummer. Otherwise I would have bought more. Without a % coupon they're 69 cents each. With a 25% CVS coupon they're a $0.22 moneymaker! I used my 25% coupon yesterday, of course, but fortunately still had a 20% coupon from another card. There was also a 20% CVS coupon in circulars distributed in newspapers this weekend - you could try to use that, but people have reported that these coupons don't deduct from items that produce Extra Bucks. Lame, CVS.

These wipes are typically found in the facial care section on a hook (as opposed to the shelf). They also could be found in the trial size section, I suppose, though I didn't see any there.

Here's what I did:

Bought 2 Biore Facial Wipes 10 ct $3.19, regular price
Buy 2, Receive $5.00 Extra Bucks, Limit 8 (monthly Jergens deal)
Used 20% CVS coupon (took off $1.28)
Paid $5.10, Received $5.00 Extra Bucks
Final Price $0.10 ($0.05 each) for 2

$6.38  Shelf price
- 1.28  Coupons
=$5.10 Out of pocket cost
-  5.00 Extra Bucks received
=$0.10  98.4% savings off shelf price

What I actually paid: $5.10 - $5.00 previous Extra Bucks = $0.10 + $0.31 sales tax = $0.41 paid out of pocket. Walked away with $5.00 in new Extra Bucks.

Net Cost: $0.41
