CVS Clearance Sale–The Secret is Out!


I live in a smaller community. The city includes around 39,000 people. In the last couple of years we have seen our first Olive Garden, Ulta store, and now we have a CVS (instead of just having 3 Walgreens.) CVS runs some amazing sales. They still do buy one-get one promotions; rather than buy 2 get 1 or buy 1 get half-off the 2nd item. I like that a lot!

Recently I came across a collection of YouTube videos where women were “hauling” all of the beauty items they got at their local CVS’ annual beauty clearance sale at 50-75% off (some deals were even better with coupons.) I scratched my head because I had just been in CVS with my sister and nothing was on sale at that level… Then I saw a video that reminded us that SOME STORES DID NOT GET THEIR STICKER KITS; so the items were still on clearance but they were not marked. I made a list of items I would be interested in and when I went to CVS… It was all true–and no one in town had wiped out the clearance makeup. I snagged a very enthusiastic worker with a scanner (she offered and THANK YOU to her!!!) and grabbed a reasonable amount of items.

I do know that these items are most likely being discontinued; but there was a fantastic selection of clearance items, including a lot of Physicians Formula that I have been wanting to try for some time. I haven’t opened anything yet (and it is not all for me) but I am still super excited that I got first pick at a” secret” sale!!

Nouveau Cheap wrote up an in-depth piece on the sale and included lists, percentages off, and pictures of sale items. I believe the sale runs until the merchandise sells out; so if you haven’t checked it out, there may still be time.
