How I Got 2 Victoria’s Secret Free Full Size Bottle Perfumes

If you frequent in this blog, you would know that I am a big Victoria’s Secret shopper. You would also know the reasons why as I keep writing them over and over again.

It’s the only store I buy my bras, perfumes/mists and lotions, and other stuff from. Last week, I was able to avail their glitch online. Buy 2 sport bras for $29.50 each and entered the promos “EDP4FREE” and the other one I forgot for free shipping. I paid $63 plus including tax and received my two full size bottle of perfumes that would have cost me $110 if I were to buy them in full price. Not only that, I also received .53 cents from Ebates cashback for shopping through their site before checking out Victoria’s Secret site.

I love the new collection of VS sport bra, small size fits me perfectly and the material they used is decent enough to last for long.

2 sport bras and two full size bottle of perfume do not come by often so when I saw it, I did not hesitate to avail the glitch. It’s something that I would always go for when it happens because you would pay more if you were to do this in store.

Besides, free perfume and free shipping codes often are not stackable codes if not for the glitch.

The Revlon Mascara Craze

So everybody in the couponing groups are posting their Revlon mascara haul from Target, Walmart and CVS. I am sharing mine here too. I only printed ten coupons from smartsource and made sure to use them all today as they are only good for today.

I did try the first CVS store I went to this morning but failed. The cashier couldn’t accept more than one coupon because she thought they were copied coupons while they’re not. Revlon allowed me to print two copies each browser and I used two computers!

Gladly, the second CVS store store I went to accepted all four $5 manufacturer coupons, combined that with $4 off of $20 purchase Revlon products. Deal this week is buy one $8.79 get one 50% off, I paid out of pocket $2.76 including tax.

The six remaining coupons were used in Walmart, their current price is $5.97 so, ended up paying just 97 cents each mascara. Happy shopper here.

I know I can’t use them all as I still have old mascaras from how many months ago I don’t know… but my friends, cousins and relatives in the Philippines can use them.

Well, it is very possible, just read on.

How To Earn Freebies from Victoria’s Secret and Bath and Body Works

I tell you what, I can go to the mall and not spending any dime for items I wear and use everyday, instead, bringing them home for free. Loyalty to one’s store pays off, once you become their loyal customer, rest assured, you will get many freebies ahead of you!

I don’t buy my panties anymore. Most of them are free from PINK by Victoria’s Secret. My bras are all PINK too, although I did not get them for free but at least, I got them at discounted items plus a whole lot more free stuff from them. Same goes with lotions from Bath and Body Works store. I have a couple of travel size BBW lotions free from them as well.

Here’s I do it.

1. Become a member by applying for a Victoria’s Secret or Pink credit card. You can apply in person at their store or online.
2. When you shop in-store, do not hesitate to provide your email and physical address so they can track your purchases and so they can send you brochures, coupons and other promos to your home address in the future.
3. The more you shop, the more you get coupons from them. Once you have your VS credit card, always swipe it for points. Certain points earned will be equivalent to certain reward card in the future when you reach the threshold they set for you.
4. Also, if you choose to shop online. Sign up on EBATES and search for your favorite store through their site to earn cashback when you check out successfully. First time members, receive $ too!

As for Bath and Body Works, it pretty much work the same way as Victoria’s Secret since they are sister companies only I don’t hold a BBW credit card but I do provide my email to them when they ask in store plus I have been a long time customer to this store so coupons arrive in our mailbox once in a while.


….. PINK panties and BBW lotion I got for free the other day with the use of coupons they sent me to our home address. That is $20 plus savings there for both items.

Great Deal on Clothing and Shoes at Old Navy Store

I’ve been back to Old Navy store twice already. It is not my habit to go back to the store and shop a lot of clothing but when I find real deep discounts on clothing and shoes for the kids, I wouldn’t mind driving there twice or more.

Last Friday last week, Old Navy had a promotion buy 2 clearance items get 1 free. That promo only lasedt for three days. I was able to avail that on Friday, bought quite a lot of slippers, boy shorts and some adult tops starting from 47 cents up to a little over $5. I spent only $27 plus that day plus I got a $10 Old Navy super cash certificate.

Yesterday I went back again and I was not disappointed. I found more awesome merchandise that are less than a dollar each. More shorts for the boys, slippers and slip on shoes for both girls and boys, some shorts for the girls at 47-97 cents. Imagine how amazing that is? Although the buy 2 get 1 free item promo has ended, I still think I got a good deal on my second haul. Some of which will be shipped to my relative in Oregon for she requested me to buy some for her siblings too.

 

…. photo below are just 97 cents per pair. Ever wonder why I ¬†bought a lot of this? Well, they will go into my balik-bayan box to be sent to my brother and nephews in the Philippines.

… shorts and t-shirts for my little brother, 47 cents each, a dollar for the t-shirts.

…. stylish little girls’ shoes for 97 cents, shorts 97 cents for the girls. I should say, boys shorts are 50 cents cheaper than girls and they are thick and comfy materials.

Deals on Vitamins at CVS this Week 1/3-9/16

Here’s a good deal worth driving to CVS this week, a deal on vitamins with tons to choose from. Brands like CVS brand, nature made, nature bounty and Disney are buy one get one free! It is even better if you have manufacturer coupons and store coupon printed from the red machine last week to stack altogether. I got $4 off of $25 vitamin purchase for that and a $5 ecb along with a few manufacturer coupons.

These vitamins could easily cost me over $60 but with the use of coupons, I was able to save 75% of the price for all this. I am pleased with my shopping trip because I only paid $19.90 including tax for vitamins that could last for months, these are of course for me and for our girls.

Another deal I am aiming to avail this week is the Aveeno cleansing bars which will then give me $10 ecb back, no need for coupons for this. Hopefully when I go to the store on Saturday, there’ll be stocks left in the shelf before the promo ends.

CVS Thanksgiving Freebies

Free is good and I love it. Free paid for by your neighbors is bad and I don’t like that idea. So, if you haven’t head out to CVS this week, better go asap as these freebies are only good until tomorrow. I scored a few items that I use and are useful to my family worth $12.47. I could have scored more but when I went to the other CVS store, some items are out and I can’t force them to sell me the stuff I want if they are out, lol.

Anyway, I only paid $2+ out of pocket for all this since I had $10 extrabucks on hand. Goodies are good, eh! I used two cards for this, of course!

Items below;

1 CVS trial pack boys training pants

2 CVS brand pantiliners

2 Colgate toothpastes at $3 each ( I used (2) red machine printed coupons $2.50 and (2) .50 manufacturer coupons

2 CVS travel wipes

2 Extra gum sticks

1 Luden cough drops

1 sour patch gum

Old Navy End of Season Clearance Starting at 47 Cents

Now is the perfect time to shop for clothes for you and your entire family especially for your kids. One of my favorite destinations to shop for clearance is Old Navy. When we say, clearance, their merchandise is truly marked down to like they almost give it away.

You just have to take your time and have patience when shopping for clearance. There are plenty to choose from and some of the mark down items are buried deep under the not so deal items. As temperatures get dropping down, stores are also getting rid of their previous merchandise so you really need to head on to your fave store and start shopping for next summer’s outfit.

As for my haul yesterday, I found quite a lot on women’s section to be cheap. Two of my favorite finds are the blue hound’s tooth dress for under $8 and a beautiful beige/faux snakeskin body bag which I love a lot. It was marked down half price off and so I grabbed it. If the bag was sold at less than $15 and it isn’t as beautiful as the one I’m wearing below, I would even bother spending my money on it. But man, when I laid eyes on it, thought this bag was gorgeous for half off price.

Other stuff I found was 47 cents women’s sleeveless shirts, 2 summer dresses for my 7 year old kid, one long sleeves and two other top for my mother which are under $2 each. I paid a little over $32 for everything plus a $10 Old Navy supercash good for next shopping trip.

I am happy with my haul and yes, would love to go back there again sometime soon.
