This has to be one of my favorite deals this week at CVS! Buy select Suave products and receive a $4.00 extrabucks reward when you spend $12.00 (sale price). Use some great buy one get one free coupons on an awesome sale price, and pick up six Suave products for less than $2.00 total! BOGO coupons combined with BOGO sales can be confusing. Be sure to read our explanation below. Here’s the breakdown:
- Buy two Suave Professionals Gold at full price for $3.79 each ($7.58).
- Buy two Suave Professionals Gold at half price, or $1.90 each ($3.80).
- Use two BOGO coupons to get the two full price Suave Professionals Gold for free (-$7.58).
- Buy two bottles of Suave Body Wash for the sale price of $2.00 each ($4.00).
- Use one BOGO coupon to get one Suave Body Wash for free (-$2.00).
- Pay $5.80 and get back $4.00 in extrabucks.
At CVS, when using a BOGO coupon on a BOGO 50% off sale, the free item should be the full price item, just as the full price item is free with a BOGO sale and BOGO coupon. The register automatically prompts the cashier to apply it this way. However, it isn’t unheard of that a cashier will attempt to override the register and only give you the half price product for free. We suggest two things: first, point out their policy about using BOGO coupons to get two free items in a BOGO sale (where the full price item becomes free); second, if they are only going to give you the half price item for free, take a deep breath and smile. Then be sure that they put the correct amount in the box for redemption on the coupon and not the full price.
