CVS: 6/21 Practical Couponing - 99% Extreme Savings!

$41.43 in products               Total OOP $0.03 + tax.             99% Savings!  

                                                        $15.99 in ECBs to roll next time! 

It took 3 CVS locations to find the Hawaiian Tropic Lip Balm. It became a quest...
I was not going to give up! :)
Look for the Hawaiian Tropic Lip Balm in the center of the store near the "Summer Fun" reset, near the sunscreens, tanning lotion etc. You may also find them on a peg hook on an endcap. The Hawaiian Tropic 2 oz Shimmer Lotion for $2.99 have been spotted on the "Beauty Islands" (those fixtures in the beauty department that hold all the cardboard displays of new cosmetics) Look for baskets containing the 2 oz tubes. I was not able to locate the lotion at any of the 3 North OC stores I visited.

See how it breaks down after the jump!

(2) Hawaiian Tropic Lip Balms $2.99 x 2 = $5.98

  1. I went to every CVS in Johnson City yesterday to no avail D:! They didn't even have the little shimmer lotions (which I love!). Gonna try again today, since we're right in the heart of the Tri-cities.

  2. I would have preferred the shimmer lotions to the lip balm, but I haven't been able to find them anywhere!
