**UPDATED** Great Deal On Olay Body Wash & Cleanser Starting 8/29 at CVS!

Understanding Extra Care Bucks (ECB) * Shopping CVS
Current CVS Deals

UPDATE: If you receive the $3.00 off Olay facial care cpn from the scanner this week  you’ll score this deal for only $3.63 – that’s only .91 each!!

We’ve got a couple Olay deals we can combine starting 8/29 to get a really nice deal on body wash and facial cleansers!

Olay Body Wash will be $6.79 with a $2.00 ECB reward and the limit is 3 – yay! The facial cleansers will be BOGO 50% off.

Here’s what you do:

Buy 2 Olay Body Wash (cpn excludes Age Defying, Total Effects) $6.79
Buy 2 Olay Complete Wet Facial Cleansing Towelettes $5.99 BOGO 50% off
Subtotal: $22.57
Use (2) Buy Olay Facial Cleanser, Get Body Wash FREE (excl. Age Defying and Total Effects) up to $5.99 P&G 7-29 (exp. 8-31)
Final price: pay $10.59 – get $4.00 ECB = 4/$6.63 ($1.66 ea.)

We all know the manufacturer’s golden rule of couponing: You can’t use more than one manufacturer’s cpn on a single item.
Second rule: Even if a cpn doesn’t beep at the register doesn’t mean it’s been used in the right way.

I know this post is going to bring up the question “can I use the $3.00/2 Olay cpn with the cpns above?”

This may help explain why it’s not ethical to do it:

The part of CVS coupon policy that states “up to 2 cpns may be used on a BOGO free promo” does not mean you can use more than one manufacturer’s cpn on 1 item. Promo refers to  a sale or special event and not a cpn. I’ve called CVS to confirm this.

When you use a BOGO free cpn it attaches to both items, even the one you are paying for so you can’t use the $3.00/2 Olay cpn in addition to the ones above.

Even if it were possible the $3.00/2 cpn would prevent you from using any other cpn with it anyways. You have to buy 2 items in order to use the cpn or it would be a $3.00/1 and not a $3.00/2.  $3.00/2 means part of the coupon applies to one item and part of it applies to the other, hence attaching to both items. So therefore, you couldn’t use the Olay BOGO free.

Even if the cpn doesn’t beep, CVS will not be reimbursed for both cpns as manufacturer’s call using an addtional cpn with a BOGO free “double dipping” :)

    My math did not come out the same as yours. Are you taking 6.79 off for the body wash? Coupon has a max of 5.99. The products that you have to buy to get the free body wash are 5.99 and then the 2nd one is 50% off so that is almost $9.00 plus tax. Just couldn’t get to the same as you. Still are great find. I will be doing it as I did get the $3.00 crt. Thanks

      Thanks Sharon…I had forgotten about the $5.99 limit on the coupon. I fixed the post to reflect the cpn limit :)
