  1. Tori

    for the walgreens scenario, what coupon needs to be scanned first? since there will be overage wont one of them beep?

    • mel

      last time around, I gave the manuf coupon first, then the walgreens coupon, so I did not get any dreaded beeps using the IVC. Just make sure to have other items to absorb the overage.

      • sue

        so will there be $1.50 overage for the above deal at walgreens?

  2. Cat

    Warning–Big ugly Almay ad will print if you select only this coupon.

    • karen

      thank you for the tip!

  3. tracisme

    can this be used at walmart with the $1.14 makeup removers?

    • mel

      The coupon says off “cosmetic products” Makeup removers are not cosmetics.

        • mel

          I do take that back, as after I replied, went digging and have an expired coupon that shows the remover pictured. But in the fine print, it says Not Valid on Trial/Travel sizes, so it can’t be used on the $1.14 priced removers anyway.

          • 78Brownie

            Good catch. IDK those were travel/ trial

      • Aly

        I disagree, I think they are considered cosmetics.

        • Dorothy

          I agree with Aly. The other time when they came out with the coupon buy 2 and get $5.00 off Almay cosmetic product and I used it at Walmart They took it when I bought 2 of the removers for $l.14 ea. This is a great money maker!

          • mel

            Did you not read my reply where I said I was mistaken? And the $1.14 removers ARE TRIAL SIZE, so the coupon won’t apply since those are excluded.

  4. Melissa

    On the Walgreens scenario: do you need two coupons from the March Coupon Booklet? I’m new at using these.

    • Liz

      Scanning it once will deduct the coupon on each item..u dont even need to tear the coupon from the book..just ask the casher to scan it.

      • Melissa

        thank you!

  5. Michele

    Thank you thank you

  6. Sue

    I just did it and it spit out a Catalina for a free
    Make up bag

    • Nik

      Which coupons I scan first for Walgreen scenario ?

    • Ashlynn

      sweet what store is the free make up bag from?

      • Sue

        The Catalina has a code that you enter online
        For the free make up bag

        • Sue

          That’s at Walgreens

    • Cat

      No make up bag for me :(. Can’t complain though–free lip gloss.

      • Sarah

        I am interested in the lip gloss as well. Was this at Walgreens? Also was it buy 1 get one 50 percent off? Just curious what the transaction looked like. Thanks!

        • Cat

          Let’s see… Buy one at 5.99, get one at 2.99. Pre coupon total is about $9. My cashier scanned the Almay coupon right away (sharp girl) and it took $4 off. Then she had to force the $5 coupon–the barcode wouldn’t scan for whatever reason. I’m sure it would have beeped if it had scanned since only $4.98 of the cost remained. So 2 cent money maker–except that I have 7% sales tax. I bought a couple of other small things, so not sure how it would have gone with Almay purchase only.

  7. Kim

    free makeup bag at walgreens?

  8. eunice

    in the walgreens scenario, there will be an overage of $1.51, do walgreens give overage that can be put towards another item? or the cashier would adjust it down? thanks

  9. Jessica

    I’ve used this coupon at Ulta paired with the store coupon they have as well. You can score some pretty good lip glosses when they are on sale B1G1 50%. It seems to be easier to do this with the 3.50/10 coupon as opposed to the 5/10 you get once in a while.

  10. Stefanie

    Does anyone know the price on the make-up remover face cloths at Walgreens? If those will be free or close to free, then that’s what I want to get!

    • Amber


  11. leeb

    there is also a $2/1 video values for feb. also. use both feb. and march and it becomes a money maker if you have already watched the feb. one. it expires on 3/15

    • Youna Kimi

      i just went to rite aid, and they wouldnt take the coupon, it didnt scan

  12. pat

    When this coupon prints in the bottom right hand corner it states something about not being used with a special offer..what exactly does that mean? because it was giving me diffculty with the manager at walgreens today

  13. Lisa

    Manager was called…the $5/2 would not scan. He said because the B1g1 is considered a special offer. Might try again tomorrow.

    • Pam

      that manager gave you the biggest crock of bull..that has nothing to do with the coupon not scanning. There seems to be a problem with how it is coded.

      • yellowfan

        One time one of my coupon won’t scan so I asked why I can not use ONE coupon (not TWO ) on B1G1 free item. The cashier paged the manager . The manager told me because I brought B1G1 free item, so I can not use my coupon??? I knew she was BS me but I was so embarrassed when it happened in front so many people. I paid and left. Sometimes my WAGS RR coupon won’t sacn and the cashier had to try many times to get it scanned. One cashier told me because the ink on the RR coupon bar code was too light. I think she knew because she has to deal with coupons all day long. How come my CVS ECB never give me any problems ??? I like my ECB better, I can even use it within 7 days after the EXP date. Extra 7 day can help a lot.

        • Youna Kimi

          same issued happened to me just a few mins ago, i might as well go to cvs later tonight , cvs never gives me issues

  14. Bre

    The Walgreens scenario wouldn’t work for me because of the way the computer applies the discounts. The manager was called up and he pushed the $5 coupon through but ‘couldn’t apply the $2 off coupon because 1 item shows $2.49 and the 2nd item shows $.49, the coupon wants to take $1 off each product’. Bummer ๐Ÿ™ Good luck at your local Walgreens, ladies.

    • mel

      Were you only buying 2 Almay? It seems as though the $2 did apply. Walgreens registers are strange. When you give the items to the cashier, the screen will show

      When you give the IVC, it changes the price on your receipt to:

      Order of coupons is important, b/c if you give the IVC first, the subtotal is less than $5 and some cashiers don’t know how to (or don’t want to) adjust the manuf coupon down. In this case to $3.48.

      In this case, you need to give the manuf coupon first, b/c upon the items being scanned, the subtotal is $7.48. Then give the IVC, BUT you need to have other items in your transaction to absorb the $1.50 overage.

      • Bre

        I was purchasing other items with the 2 Almay products the first time I tried to checkout with the cashier. The 2nd time with the manager it was just the Almay products. Thank you for the advice on the coupon order though.

    • Cytocinr

      It didn’t work for me either but finally pushed through because of a nice cashier

    • Sad Couponer

      I had the same issue tonight…so frustrated…wasted 30 minutes only to have the cashier ask me to go ahead and pay the $15 dollars…seemed like such a huge discount to him. It was, but not the deal I was hoping for…booo!

  15. Steph

    Anyone know if this will work at Rite Aid on the softies even though the video value is for i-intense shadow?

  16. Elizabeth

    The barcode printed funny on mine (both times) but the Wags cashier pushed it through for me. Im curious to see how well these eyeshadows work. I bought a dark purple color to replace a Rimmel shadow that I did not work well at all for me

      • Kim

        How are your suppose to to get the UPC off these products or even a copy of them haha. How much was this at your store?

        • Alissa

          It peels right off the product as it’s on the label.

      • Alissa

        Love the stuff! I picked some at Target and submitted the rebate. ๐Ÿ™‚

  17. Erina

    For those wanting to try this deal at Rite Aid this week, beware of the coupons not going through. The $5/2 didn’t scan and the Rite Aid Video Value coupon didn’t scan either. The cashier tried to tell me that it wasn’t for Almay Shadow Softies, but I explained to her it WAS an Intense I-Color product. Luckily, the manger pushed them through for me.

  18. Loyda

    We are always getting some $3 off any Almay product coupon from the magic coupon machine, so make sure you scan your card in the CVS’s magic coupon machine.

  19. Barb

    I just tried it at Walgreens and my cashier had to push it through, I bought 4 eye shadows and I applied the extra $3 overage to a clearanced Lego City set that was marked $9.99 (reg. $19.99), $7 for a Lego City Fire Truck, sweet!

  20. Maria

    Just another tip : give the manufacturer coupons before you scan your store card. That way prices would be higher than coupon and systen wnt beep. Then scan ur store card to get sale prices.

    • Barb

      That’s good advice Maria I wish I would have tried that, however my coupon said ‘item not found’ when they scanned it so I’m thinking the coupon it messed up? Who knows, but thanks for the advice I’m going to try that next time.

    • Sad Couponer

      Tried that as well…to no avail.

  21. Nicole P

    Just did this deal at Walgreens and my store adjusted the coupon down to 3.48. They also told me I have to hand over walgreens coupons first and then the manufacturer coupon.

    • justme

      mine did the same thing and only took off the 3.48 so that I wouldn’t have overage Oh well free eyeshadow! Perfect to put in a teens easter basket!

  22. Chels

    Just tried the eyeshadow deal I bought 4 eyeshadow and I gave her 2 5/2 coupons plus the march book and she told me it will not allow her to use both 5/2 coupons and the manager told her to over ride 1 of the 5/2 but not the other even though I had 4 items!!! So annoying I’m trying a different one tomorrow

  23. May

    I couldn’t do this deal at the store I shopped today.
    The cashier told me I need to buy 2 Almay products for $5 or above since it’s $5 below they can’t accept the coupon… I thought it’s shady ๐Ÿ™
    I always think why some store will accept and some doesn’t even it’s the same company.

    • Sad Couponer

      I was told the same and tried it with the glosses for 5.79…NO DEAL!

  24. Kim

    I did they deal tonight. I was able to print a total of 4 $5.00 off 2 manf cpn. This is what I did. I bought 12 eyeshadows. Walgreens coupon took $24.00 off and got $20.00 off from manf cpn. I paid $4.02 for all 12 out the door. The cashier did have to push the coupon in. The cashier and manager on duty were super nice. I would suggest buying it in the makeup department. I hope this helps some of you.

  25. Jennifer

    I spent 5 minutes looking for Almay makeup then asked the girl at the counter and she said they don’t carry Almay at this Walgreens! I was so bummed that I bought some yummy GMO infused jelly beans with the in store coupon. They really helped, lol!

  26. Diana B

    The cosmetics counter allowed me to use both coupons. I always give the Store coupon first and then the man. coupon, and then put in my reward number. We scored 4 eye shadows, and 4 Arizona teas for under $1. The lady at the counter was impressed and so were my two teenaged daughters. Thanks for the deal!

  27. Diana

    Yes cvs has a deal too… Softies are also $4.99 buy 2- $5mq – $4 off any almay cosmetic= $1 and get $4 ecb! Thats a good deal too. I’ll get my jelly beans ecb and roll that onto almay deal ๐Ÿ™‚ i’ll try walgreens too. I really hate going there, i have issues with coupons every single time i go and it seems no one, including manager knows what they are doing. Buy trying won’t hurt. Thank u! ๐Ÿ™‚

  28. Lissette

    I got so much makeup for almost free last time this coupon was out!! So excited!!!! Stucking up for Mother’s Day, birthdays, etc.

    • Lissette

      Stocking* lol

  29. Glenda

    Off subject–when Target Cartwheel says a limit of 4 does that mean a total limit of 4 or can I make a second purchase and get 4 more?

    • Karla

      I believe it’s 4 total

    • Ashley

      It’s 4 per transaction same as the target coupon policy. So do two separate transactions, you can do up to 4 separate transactions per day, at least that’s what mine’s allowed.

  30. Jen

    If you like ibotta, check out Shopmium!!! It’s like ibotta without having a minimum to transfer!! Please use my referral code GHKEYMPL when signing up to get a free Lindt Bar also!!!! Thanks!!!

  31. Susan

    So how many Almay do you need to purchase to get the make-up bag catalina?

    • Brandy

      I’m not really sure bc I bought four almay items today and didn’t get the free bag. I got a $3.00 off any almay product though.

  32. Steph

    I just went to walgreens and didn’t get the makeup bag offer even though there was a display in the store that said buy 3 almay products, get a free makeup bag! I also had a little issue at the register. I bought 4 eyeshadows and a bag of cotton balls for $1. She scanned the coupons and said she couldn’t take the full $5 off on the second manufacturer coupon because it would be negative, which I understand. But I’m not sure how she calculated only to take $2 off. I ended up paying $1.84 out of pocket, which wasn’t bad for that, but I just don’t know how she decided that. Sometimes it isn’t worth it to fight or question things.
