Went to CVS and decided to take advantage of the great Revlon Nail Polish sale.

Unfortunately, the $2 off Revlon coupons do not work on the nail polish (screen prompts no item found). Some stores probably will push it through but don't be alarmed if they don't. I am sure all of the CVS's are now scared about pushing coupons through and just wary of coupons now.

Why? Because of all the (insert plenty of 4 letter words) people who thought absolutely nothing of printing as many Physician's Formula coupons that they possibly could. Which FYI - just because a coupon is a pdf does not mean you can print as many as you want. The coupon was sadly being naive thinking people would not take advantage of them and print 10's, 20's, 100's of these coupons. Treat PDF coupons just like you would the coupons you print off of coupons.com (which means 2). Anyways, it seems people were printing many,many of these coupons to use at Target and CVS because there were giftcard deals and ecbs deals with this product. Guess what? These stores are not going to be reimbursed for all of these thousands and thousands of coupons. That means us honest coupon users are going to have even MORE problems using coupons thanks to these dishonest people.

I have a feeling some stores may even say no more printables and well, you can't blame them.

Anyways here is what I bought:

4 Revlon Nail Polishes $4.99 each = $

1 Purex $1.98

1 Qtips $1.99

Total before taxes and coupons = $23.93

Coupons/ECBs I used:

$1 off Purex

.30 cents off Qtips

$7.99 ecb

$5.00 ecb

$3.00 ecb

$1 ecb

$3 ecb

(would not have used the last 2 ecbs if the coupons would have worked for the Revlon)

New total after taxes and coupons/ecbs= $4.04 and I received $16 in ecbs back for the nail polish.
