Sephora: FREE Clinique Acne Solution Online & In-Store

I got a slightly confusing email from Clinique yesterday which says FREE Clinique Acne Solution sample in-store and online. For the online, you would need to enter code ACNE and pay for shipping (starts at $5.99 so NOT good at all unless you were going to buy something from Sephora Online anyways. I wonder if I would need to print the email out b/c it does not say.

Check your inbox this morning for an email titled "Don't Miss Out on These Great Deals". It advertises the Charmin Basic Bath Tissue, 16 Rolls (in store only) for $4.99! NOW- here's where it gets awesome! Combine the 15% off store discount coupon (limit 1 per customer per day, works on one item only-expires July 2, 2011). Then use the $5 Staples Rewards that you should have received in your inbox the other day (see my previous post on this). Then, use the MQ from P&G June 2011 for .25 cents off!

This means the total should be: $4.99 (15% off of that is .74 cents)-.25 cents off Q = Total would be $3.99. Pay with the Staples Rewards that you got and it's FREE!
NOTE: You must USE any store coupons AND Staples Rewards first to avoid problems in your transaction. Staples ALWAYS takes both of these first BEFORE any manufacturer coupons.

My Toothpaste Stockpile as a Multi-Purpose Cleaner

I was done blogging last tonight and was reading when I noticed a red stain on my white lacquered table. Since I've dealt with this before, I knew exactly how to get rid of it (and no it was not with disinfect wipe, soap, or traditional furniture/kitchen/appliance cleaners). I actually used expired toothpaste!

Yup, you heard me! If you have extra toothpaste in your stockpile or even expired toothpaste, consider keeping it as a cleaner. It works miracles!

photos to come! I'm having problems uploading them!

Thank You 3M Nexcare Bandages: Why You Should Provide Feedback to Manufacturers!

Nexcare Comfort Ultra Fabric Bandages, Assorted Sizes 50 eaA few months ago I wrote to 3M Nexcare regarding a box of Nexcare Comfort Fabric Bandages 35 Ct I bought from Walgreens. When I got home, I opened it and realized that I only had 6 pieces! I was annoyed since the bandages inside the box did not match what I actually bought. I emailed 3M Nexcare and they promptly responded saying that they would investigate their manufacturing process. There were a few mix ups, but I got a package from them today! They gave me a replacement product- the Nexcare Comfort Ultra Fabric Bandages, Assorted Sizes 50 ea! This gesture was appreciated and I will definitely be buying Nexcare bandages into the future!

Note: The lesson here is that manufacturers do care about your opinions (good and bad). It takes some effort to write a letter, but by participating in the process, you will make the product and the distribution of it better!

Field Update on CVS Hawaiian Tropic Lip Balm Money Maker!

There's a Buy 2 Hawaiian Tropic products (excludes baby items), Get $10 in extra bucks at CVS this week (thanks Coupon Pro Blog and Hip2Save). I finally got a chance to test this deal out by buying TWO Hawaiian Tropic Lip Balms priced at $2.99 each. I paid $5.98+ tax and got back $10 in extra bucks making this a money making deal! I will be spending these extra bucks on the 1 gallon milk on sale this week for $2.99 (good deal-even Walmart has their's priced at $3.14).

Note: Technically, I paid less than this b/c I was able to use the 25% off coupon I received via email (check my previous post) and it gave me $1.13 off of my entire transaction. I don't know how this number was figured in the transaction since I had a few other items as part of my purchase, but all of those items were on sale this week. In any case, if you have this Q, I highly suggest using it w/this transaction to possibly get a sweeter MM!

Also, if you want to buy a non-lip balm item, you can use this $1/1 Mq (prints 2x).
Tips to Snag this Deal:
  • From my field research, look for larger stores that have a swimming and beach aisle. Chances are the store WILL carry the item. 
  • Check the end aisles under the Coppertone Display. You should find the Tropical and Vanilla Mint Lip Balms at the bottom of the display shelf.
  • Other products that are cheap and are issuing the extra bucks include the Shimmer Lotion (Priced $2.99) and the Sunscreen/Sunblock (Priced $6.99) which I found adjacent to the lip balm.
  • Can't find it in either aisles? I would also look under sunscreen, beauty (in new section or in some of the new section large glass bowls where they stored the shimmer lotion).
  • I've also seen lip glosses/balms near the medicine end aisles (strange...I know...)

I previously posted that students can eat free this summer at IKEA by presenting their student ID (max value: $6.99 each time) from June 19, 2011 through July 2, 2011. I am not sure if they changed their policy on this or not, but they released a coupon today via email. The coupon states that the coupon MUST BE presented w/the ID to grab the free food. In any case, it's a PDF file and you can print it more than once (Coupon Reads: 1 Free Entree per transaction per visit). Just in case, I'd print the Q and have it handy.
