Awesome Herbal Essences Deal!

August 2nd, 2013 at 03:56 pm

Ok so here is the deal I was planning to do on the Herbal Essences:

Herbal Essences Shampoo or Conditioner 10.1oz
Regular Price $3.99 each
Sale Price 2/$5 ($2.50 each)
-$2.50 Mfr BOGO Free coupon
*$1.00 EB for buying 2 (limited to 1 per card)
= $1.50 for 2, or .75 per bottle

But here is the deal I acually ended up getting

Regular Price $3.99 each (Bought 22 bottles, $87.88 total)
Sale Price 2/$5 ($2.50 each, $55.00 total)
-$54.89 ($4.99 x 11) BOGO Free coupons
*Receive $11 EB ($1 for every 2 bottles purchased)
Final Price $10.89 Money Maker!!
(Keeping 2 for myself and selling the other 20, marked for $2.00 each for the rummage sale)

If I sell them all that would be a profit of $40.00 (20 bottles x $2.00)+$10.89 = $50.89!!

*ETA - Sold 11 bottles for $2.00 each at 8/23/13 rummage sale
*ETA - Sold 7 bottles for $2.00 each at 9/5/13 rummage sale
*ETA - Sold 2 bottles for $2.00 each on 6/16/14 on FB
Total Profit = $50.89!!

I was only planning on getting 2 bottles for the .75 each since you were only supposed to get the EB deal once per card, and the coupon should have taken off $2.50. But the coupons ended up taking off $4.99 instead of $2.50 and for some reason the EB printed everytime I bought 2, instead of just the once!
So I came out with 22 bottles of shampoo conditioner and I made $10.89!! SUPER DEAL!
I had about 20 of the BOGO Free coupons, I used 11 and gave the rest to my Mom and she also cashed in on this deal.

    How many transactions did you do? Did you go to more than one store? I love when those kinds of deals work out!

    Well I thought I could only do the deal once per card, so I initially got 2 bottles per card (I have 3 cards). Then when I realized the coupon was ringing up for $4.99 instead of $2.50, I wanted to get more bottles, and I thought I wouldn't get any more EBs, but that was ok because they would still only cost .01 a piece without the EBs. So the next day I bought 8 more bottles on one card, and it printed out another $4.00 EB. So then I went and got ANOTHER 8 bottles...lol. In total I did 5 seperate transactions because I didn't know that the deal would ring up how it did. But I could have just done one big transaction since the coupons and EBs were ringing up wrong in my favor. I got them all at the same CVS, there is a nice, younger guy working there and he never gives me a hard time and even asks right away if I want things rang up seperate cause he know I have more then one card.
