  • Walgreens deal alert: Wait until next week to buy the free-after-rebate Almay mascara

    According to the preview of next week’s Walgreens ad, all Almay cosmetics will be on sale for buy one, get one free. So if you haven’t already purchased it, wait until then to buy the Almay mascara that’s free after rebate during the November EasySaver period.

    There were $1 off Almay coupons in the 8/3, 9/14 and 10/12 newspapers. I’ve noticed that at my favorite store, buy one, get one free items ring up as full price on the first item and zero on the second item. So the register will probably beep if I try to use two coupons. On the other hand, if the register at your store rings up each item at half price, then you should have no problem using two coupons.

    Thanks to peace3 for pointing out this deal at A Full Cup.


    1. But if someone’s store rings them at half price, that is all they will get back after rebate, so probably not as good of a deal!

      Good point, Helen – thanks! I totally forgot that that would be a problem.
