CVS "Double Dip" Alert

As I was doing my match-ups for CVS deals this morning, I came across this “double dip” that should work if your stores start the deals for the upcoming week on Saturdays.  It is awfully early in the morning, so I may be missing something, but it looks like it should work.

This week (through today), there is a deal on Revlon products – buy one Revlon Color Burst Lipstick – $7 and one Revlon Photo Ready Foundation or Powder – $12, get a $7 ECBReportedly, the “deal” is working if you purchase two Revlon Color Burst Lipsticks (no foundation), too. 

Now, here’s where the “double dipping” should come into play if your stores start their deals early.  ALL Revlon cosmetics or beauty tools (lipstick is shown in the picture in the ad) are listed as Buy One, Get One free when the 2/28 ad starts.

There were $2/1 Revlon coupons for any color cosmetic in the 2-21 SS insert and there was a $2/1 printable on (it looks like it’s no longer available).  So, if your stores start the deals early, it SHOULD (keep in mind, should because there are no guarantees) work like this:

Buy 2 Revlon Color Burst Lipstick – $7/each

Use 2 $2 Revlon coupons (will deduct $4)
BOGO free CVS deal kicks in (will deduct $7)

Total OOP = $3, get a $7 ECB back!
Final Price = moneymaker after coupons and ECBs!

If you decide you want to do the foundation and lipstick, it would work like this:

Buy 1 Revlon Photo Ready Foundation and Power – $12
Buy 1 Revlon Color Burst Lipstick – $7

Use 2 $2 revlon coupons (from 2-21 inserts or one lipstick printable and one insert coupon)
Lipstick should be “free” from BOGO free promotion (will deduct $7)

Spend $8 OOP, get a $7 ECB
Final Price = $1 after coupons/ECBs

Let me know if it works for you!

    May have to go try this tonight! I don't know if mine starts early or not but it doesn't hurt to try! Thanks melissa!

  2. Make sure you scan some of the Revlon stuff first to find out if it's ringing up BOGO free and then you'll know if your Sunday deals have been activated!
