Wow!  I’ve heard from several of you that currently CVS has an unadvertised deal on Head and Shoulders products.  Supposedly, you can find them on clearance for only $1.57 AND they are also producing a $2 Ecb for each bottle you buy (limit 3).  Pair that low price/Ecb with a coupon and you have yourself a very sweet deal!  Here’s how…

Buy 1 Head & Shoulder’s products = $2 Ecb (limit 3)
Deal Scenario:
Buy 2 Head & Shoulder’s products $1.57 each
Total = $3.14
Use the $1/2 coupon found in the 12/11 RP
Pay $2.14
Get back $4 Ecb
Final cost FREE + $1.86 money maker!

Also, while you’re shopping at CVS, be sure to keep an eye out for Benefiber Stick Travel Packs possibly found on hangtags in the Cold/Flu aisle.  If you can find these, you can pick them up FREE! Here’s how…

Benefiber Stick Pack Travel size $1.67
Use the $2/1 coupon found here (no size restrictions)
Final cost FREE!

      And I do not think the limit is 3. I think it is 6. I bought 3 and the receipt did not say my limit was reached. I will try to buy 3 more this evening and see what happens.

      • mel

        It seems this ecb deal is a max of 3 bottles per transaction (you can buy 4, but you won’t get an $8 ecb, just $6) , up to 6 bottles total.
        And yes, the limit is 6! I reached it after buying them in 3 sets of 2.

        • whites91110

          Thanks for sharing. Then I am DEFINITELY going back tonight. If my store is not out stock :/

  1. Nicole

    There is a $2/2 coupon coming out in this weekend’s P&G. If this deal is good (and they last!) through Saturday, that would be an even sweeter deal!

  2. alicia

    yep – just did this at my cvs. they only had 2 bottles left in stock and i had thrown out the coupon already but it was still free free free after ecb!

  3. Courtney

    I hope my CVS has them!

  4. Sara

    I got this today! Didn’t have a coupon and they only had 2 bottles left, but I’ll take it 🙂

  5. mel

    The limit was reached @ 6 for me. I did 3 separate transactions (at 2 different stores b/c 1 store only had 2 bottles on the shelf, the other store had a full endcap!)
    My first transaction was on Monday, I used a previous $3 ecb b/c I didn’t have my coupon binder with me. Paid .33 w/tax. Went to a different store yesterday with the $1/2 coupon and rolled the $4 ecb, using the 1.86 overage towards a Frutopia hair serum (1.96), again paying .32 w/tax. When I noticed the receipt still didn’t say limit reached, I got 2 more, this time just using the coupon and a $2 ecb, so 6 bottles of shampoo + 1 hair serum for $1!

  6. mel

    Don’t forget the Beauty Club balance resets on Dec 31, so if you’re close to your next $5 reward, you’ll have until closing time Saturday to buy stuff to count! I was almost $10 away, but after buying all those head & shoulders + hair serum, that was more than enough to push me over!

    • whites91110

      Does the Beauty Club count the clearance price or what the product was originally?

      • mel

        the clearance price counts.

    • Janie

      Check your email and/or online account too. I received a emailed coupon $5 off of $15 Maybelline or Garnier skin care that expires 12/31. Def going to CVS today!

  7. Izzy

    Yep it works. At my CVS they are $1.67 each and with each one a $2.00 ECB prints out. I kept doing 2 at a time and it went all the way up to 6 bottles. $9.42 for 6 bottles of Head and Shoulders and received $12.00 in ECB. Awesome ,awesome deal!
    also certain bottles of Dove, Pantene and Herbal Essence are also $1.57, but no ECB’s. There are also other deals for shampoos and conditioners that are unmarked. My advice is to take it up to the redbox and scan the item. Some of the prices below the item will say 50% off but it’s really 75%.

  8. Holly

    Oddly, my stores have them still at 50% off but all the Pantene are 75%. Arg! The H&S clearance bottles only had 3 remaining. More than likely, those bottles will be gone by the time it’s switched to 75%.

    • whites91110

      My bottles were incorrectly labeled. Make sure to check the price at the price scanner.

    • Izzy

      I had the same problem. Yes, definitely scan the item.

      • mel

        yep, you gotta scan them. Both stores I went to, had them tagged at 50% off, but scanning 75% off.

  9. Deena

    I just purchased 4 bottles and used the coupons and it was $4.28 and I got $6 ECB back. Awesome deal! Thanks Hip2Save! 🙂

  10. Tammi

    There were a lot of items on clearance in the hair care aisle! Found Fruitopia hair spray down to $2.09 and had a CVS coupon that took off $2! Lots of Pantene down to $1.57 and I used the $3/2 coupon from the 11/27 P&G to get them for only 7 cents!

  11. Tammi

    I also found some Rimmel nail polish on clearance for only $1.15 so only 15 cents after using the $1 coupon from 10/16 RP! Lots of cosmetic tools like eyelash curlers etc. were 50 – 75% off too.

  12. Patti

    They didn’t have them marked down at my store, maybe its a regional deal?

    • Tonya

      mine either in Knoxville TN

      • rose

        I went ot the 2 on north broadway and they were marked down but they were also sold out!

        • Tonya

          I tried Emory Rd across from Buddy’s Bar-B-Que and Merchants Drive @ Clinton Highway. None were marked 🙁

  13. Vickie

    Which oz size bottles?

    • whites91110

      At CVS my store in Indiana. Head & shoulders were 14.2 oz for $1.57 and Pantene 25.4 oz $1.74. But not all types of Pantene in that size were on clearance. you will just have to check the prices.

      • Vickie


    • Izzy

      The Head and Shoulders were 14.2 oz.

      • Vickie

        Thx Izzy!

  14. Lindsay

    I found tons of Herbal Essences and Pantene marked down to as low as 1.09-1.59 use the $3/2 Pantene to get almost free shampoo and the $1/2 on the Herbal….I stocked up!! and they had a ton of varieties.

    I got the H&S too, it was the Ocean Lift type that was on clearance where I live (Northern VA) Spent about $3 on at least 10+ bottles of shampoo from 3 diff CVS’s

    • Jessica

      Me too! I got the huge bottles of Pantene 25oz for $1.74 and than used the $3/2 coupon. I paid $0.24 each bottle!

  15. Lucille

    Hi all
    And thank you for all your good advice I have one question can I use my $5.00 ECB to buy four bottles of H&S shampoo?

    • whites91110

      Yes! Go for it!

      • Lucille

        Thank you I am on my way

  16. Nathalie

    I went to 2 CVS’s – live in Miami and they were all regular price, including the Pantene. 🙁

  17. Annette

    The H&S was on sale at my CVS for $3.14 each, not the best deal. I bought two because I thought that it was still a good deal just not a money maker for me. It was $6.28 for two minus my $1.00 coupon plus I had ECB that I used to pay for them.

  18. Amy

    My CVS in Charlotte only had Ocean Spray 75% off and it was all gone by the time I get there. Hope to stop at another on the way home. My son loves H&S

  19. lee

    i still have the $7/2 any benefiber coupons can i buy 4 of them at $1.67 each and only have to use one coupon and get 4 for free?

    • jsmith1978

      Yes but they will mark down your coupon you won’t get the overage.

    • Tammi

      If you don’t want any beeps you can buy 5 and use one $7/2 coupon. You’ll net to 1.35 for all of them then.

  20. Lisa W

    I had 2 H&S coups for $1/1! One was from a Gillette gift set I bought a year ago and the other was from one of the P&G home mailers. Huge moneymaker! I used the $1/2 coups for Aussie since they were marked down to 99 cents a piece!

  21. Jake

    No H&S on clearance at my store… everything was scanning at full price ='(

    • Jane

      same here- full price scanning even on the type with a 50% off tag!!!

  22. Laura C

    Bummer, mine were full price, $6.something per bottle, that’s a definite pass…

    • L

      Yes, and mine too over $6 a bottle. I am in Chicago.

      • Craig

        Over here too in W. MI. full price! Was so excited. Even scanned item to double check. No ECB or nothing. FULL PRICE.
        Next. lol

  23. mel

    Only 2 particular types of H&S were clearanced @ the CVS stores in my area – One has a purple ribbon that says Extra Volume and the other has a blue wave.. Ocean Lift. To note, only the shampoo’s were marked down, not the matching conditioners. For whatever reason, those were regular price? I’m sure this is a YMMV if you can find them as this deal has been on several shopping forums (and I’m sure other blogs) for a few days now.

  24. !eth

    My CVS had the 2 kinds on clearance for 3.14 so I got 2 used my $1/2 coupon and got $4 ecb. Still a great deal!

  25. Karen

    the limit is 6 on the H&S also the Pantene is ringing up $1.74 but different kinds in different stores match with $3/2 coupon from PG (11/27 i think ) then it comes to a good deal, and its on the large Pantene the H&S is on the ocean lift 14.2 oz.

  26. Amanda

    My store was already picked over but I did get a good deal on burts bee’s shampoo so I was still happy:-)

  27. Annie

    I was late to the party but was able to find 4 after 5 different stores. Going back for pantene tomorrow!

  28. rosanne

    none at my store. maybe izzy who purchased 30 bottles from 4 different stores wiped out mine

  29. ariel

    i honestly couldn’t find any of the benifiber trial packs 🙁

  30. Jenny

    Mine were marked down only 25% off, but were actually ringing up 75% off (for both H&S at $1.57 and Pantene large bottles @ 1.74). Great deal – thanks!

  31. phan

    Do we know how long they were running these clearance ? I checked 3 stores and they were out.

    • Rose

      As long as the store has these. That’s the whole point of clearancing them…to get them out of the store.

  32. Erin

    Ringing up regular price at CVS in Greenville, SC ($6.29). I scanned about 6 different kinds of H&S. 🙁 So disappointed.

  33. Beth

    Ringing up at full price here, too – in RI. Going to check one or two other locations; there’s one on every cornere here. Hopefully one will have the sale price.

  34. pl4ygiirl

    Waw went to 3 different cvs stores and finally found some H&S it was the ocean lift Shampoo…and i believe its up to 3 limit ECB per transaction cuz i did 2 and each were $6 dollars ECB i cleared my cvs and stocked up =) thnxx for the heads up =D

    • lula

      I went to 3 stores too, and someone took them all, but the ocean lift was not discounted. never have luck at cvs, really starting to dislike them

  35. Anthony Nguyen

    Its not on sale in Southern Cali 🙁
    no clearance

    • Eric

      No Head and Shoulders on sale. I could only find Dove at 75% off and it was almost oos at my So Cal stores.

    • pl4ygiirl

      im from southern cali and none of the items i seen in store had the clearance sticker on them but i went scan crazy nd i scanned until i found them went to threee different cvs stores and the first 2 didnt have any in stock and the last one did but was hiding/mixed with the regular H&S and Herbal/ Pantene

  36. Liza

    Anyone know if there are any CVS in the Rhode Island or Massachusetts area that have these on clearance. Went to mine today and both the H and S and Pantenes were regular price. I didn’t scan them b/c they didn’t have any tags anywhere that showed that they might have been on clearance. Tx.

  37. fourslinkies

    Also be on a look out for Pantene 15.9 oz, 25% bonus size. Some bottles are also on unmarked clearance with a $1 extra buck.
