CVS hair care clearance - Pantene for 7 cents!

Posted January 2, 2012



***ALERT***Pantene clearance at CVS - The Pantene Restore Beautiful Lengths conditioner, 8.5 oz, is ringing up on clearance for $1.57 (usually over $6). Use the $3/2 Pantene coupon from 1/1 PG and they are 7 cents each!

Fruitopia clearane: The Fruitopia Total Volume Conditioner, 13.5 oz rang up at $1.74 today (reg. $3.49). Use the $1.50 coupon from the CVS Reinventing Beauty magazine and it is .24 after coupon! I bought 2 Pantene and 1 Fruitopia and paid 38 cents plus tax. Total would have been $16.07 at full retail (which we would never pay of course).

I have also read on some other sites where the large bottles of some Pantene scents and some Head & Shoulders shampoo are also on clearance but the 40/42 location did not have any of those items on clearance.

Also - CVS quarterly ECB's are printing out at the coupon kiosk now. I had $8.50 waiting for me today. :-) 

Make sure you check your kiosk coupons. I received a coupon for $2 off any Revlon beauty tool. The Revlon eye pencil sharpeners are $2.49 so only .49 after coupon. The nail clippers are $2.87 so .87 after coupon.

Today I bought the 3 Pantene and Fruitopia hair care items, Ivory soap 3 pack, Oral B battery toothbrush, 2 Colgate Total Advanced, 1 sparkling water for youngest daughter, 1 eye pencil sharpener (with kiosk coupon), 1 Mentos gum with $1 coupon, 1 posterboard for youngest daughter's class project.

Today's subtotal before sales, coupons and ECB's: $41.55

Amount after coupons and ECB's: $1.33

Used a gift card from Swagbucks to pay the $1.33 so total for $41.55 = FREE!

AND earned another $9 in ECB's to spend next week!

    All out of the clearance shampoos in Mebane. Made my first CVS trip yesterday. Spent 13.00 and got back 11.00 in ECB's. Didn't think it was too bad for a first try. :)

    I picked up 4 bottles of the Restore Length on clearance for $1.57 each. I saved $4.72 on each bottle. I used 2 $3.00 off coupon and the final total was .70 cents. I spent more on taxes than the shampoo and conditioner. I also got $6.00 in ECBs. The cashier was suprised at the final total. It was the CVS on the corner of Chapel Hill Rd and Cary Parkway in Morrisville. Thanks for the heads up Faye.

    Nancy - couponing minds think alike! I have been holding on to that Hershey coupon waiting for the 75% off. If the candy starts to sell out I may have to use it at 50% off though. It's a sacrifice I am willing to make. :-)

    The holiday merchandise at the CVS at New Bern Ave and New Hope Road was at 50% off earlier today. I scanned one of the items at the kiosk and sure enough, just 50% off.

    wow! Way to go Faye! I finally found the Reinventing Beauty current issue at one CVS today, has a $1/2 hershey bagged candy coupon too, will use that when the kisses go to 75% off :)

    couponmom - not sure, but online national forums have reported it in other states so most are probably included. The shelves are NOT marked with clearance tags for any of these items so you have to scan them at the coupon kiosk to verify if they are marked down.

    Is that all the CVS???
