Deals this week:
CVS has several good promotions this week. They are splitting up their promotions again, so please view your local ad for details. There are lots of cosmetic deals in the first ad. Not only can you stock up on cosmetics for yourself, but these also make inexpensive do-it-yourself Christmas gift sets! Plus, keep in mind that there is a $15 P&G Rebate when you spend $50 (pre-coupon price) on select P&G products such as; Venus, Secret, Olay, Pantene, Herbal Essences, Aussie, Head & Shoulders, Clairol, CoverGirl, Crest 3D White Whitestrips Products, Puffs, Ivory and Safeguard. Remember you do not have to purchase all of these products at once and you have until Dec. 31 to do so. The CVS promotion this week is that you will earn a $10 Extrabuck reward when you purchase $30 in select P&G items.
Check out these scenarios that you can do to help reach that $50. You will only be able to pick one scenario since the CVS promotion is a limit of one reward per household.
