    • I noticed on your second scenario that you used a $1 off Lysol Neutra Air coupon. I’m assuming that’s one of the products you plan on getting?

      The reason I mention it is because I was looking at the rebate form trying to figure out if they all had to be from the same transaction or not since I recently bought some, (1 toilet bowl cleaner & 2 neutra air), and it says that Lysol Neutra Air products are not included in the rebate offer.

      Don’t mean to be a pain, just trying to get clarification :)


    • Jenny (also)

      I just went to they Lysol website to print my $3.00 rebate form, and it says that Neutra Air is excluded from this offer…just wanted to give a heads-up!

      • Jenny

        Thanks Jenny, I just took out the Neutra Air.


    • Natalie

      I just picked up the magazine and the free mascara coupon says at Walmart only. Will I have a problem at CVS?

      • Jenny

        Natalie, It depends on the cashier. CVS will get reimbursed because it is a manufacturer coupon. I’m sorry I can’t say though whether they will let you or not.

    • Melanie

      Do you know if you can still get the Reinventing Beauty magazine at CVS? If so, where did you find it in the store?

      • Jenny

        You can still find the magazine, many stores have it in the front near where they keep the newspapers. My store was actually handing out the coupon inserts to shoppers last week!! I was thrilled.

    • anita

      Wanted to let ya’ll know that there is a “Up to $4” Rebate on the Soft Soap Ensembles Hand Soap. I picked up rebate form at Kroger last week.

    • Where do you get the $4 off of $20 coupons? I turned one in at the register about 4 weeks ago and have not received it. Thanks for all the hard work.

    • Tabetha

      Hey Jenny,
      You may have talked about this before, but when do the ads change? I know it says Sunday on the flyer, but what about the stores that are open 24 hours? Do the deals go into effect at midnight? I just want to make sure I get there in time for the Paas kits…;-)

      • Jenny

        CVS ads change Saturday at 6pm for non 24 hour stores or 11pm I think for 24 hour stores. Sorry I don’t head out at 11pm to know if that time is right or not :)

    • Ashley

      I work for CVS and just so everyone knows Bonus Bucks never expire….they say that they do but they will honor them for ever. Coupons like the $4 off $20 and others do expire but not Bonus Bucks!!

    • Tina

      The CVS softsoap ensembles coupon is $2.00 off the Pump which is $7.99 when I checked the price yesterday. The refill is the one for $3.99. I am not sure that the CVS 2.00 off C will work with the refill. Also, is the CVS sally Hansen $3.00/2 a CVS coupons and can you use it along with a manufacturer’s C ? Thanks for all the great ideas.

      • Jenny

        The Sally Hansen coupon is a manufacturer coupon I think, haven’t looked at it recently but I’m pretty sure.

    • Where does someone get a CVS Reinventing Beauty Mag.?

      • Jenny

        They are in the front of the store near the newspapers.

    • Jannnn

      I would like to know as well. Where did you find the -$4.00 off $20?

    • Shannon N.

      For the softsoap, that deal is already active. I did it yesterday! Limit is 5. You can use the RIB magazine Q ONLY on the pump. There is a $1 off pump or refill base on redplum.com (you can print two). The rebate is good only if you buy the pump AND a refill base. So here is scenario..

      (1) Softsoap Ensembles Pump w/ base $7.99
      (1) Softsoap Ensembles Refill Base $3.99
      (1) $2/1 CVS RIB Magazine Q
      (1) $1/1 Redplum.com IP
      OOP: $8.98
      ECB: $4.00
      MIR: $4.00
      Total: .98/Pump and refill

      Now I used one of those $5/$30 CRTs that have been printing out and bought numerous refills So ended up being free for me. I have extra of the rebate forms (I found at Publix) if anyone wants to trade on hotcouponworld.com (shan2321)

    • Jess

      The coupon I have for the Lysol wipes is $1.00 off of (2). Is there one thats $1.00 off of one?

    • Whitney

      The full ad scan link says “page not found”. Is it just me?

    • Rachel

      I have never had $4 off $20 coupon print off. Is there anything specific you have to do to get one of them. I often get $10 off $50 but I really don’t like having to get my total to $50. I usually end up spending too much OOP that way.


    • Kaila

      I dont see the Sally Hansen coupon in the magazine or insert of the magazine? Could it be regional?

      • Jenny

        The Sally Hansen coupon is in the new Reinventing Beauty that just came out last week.

    • Kaila

      The one with Jennifer Aniston on the cover?

    • Whitney, it isn’t just you. The full ad scan link didn’t work for me either.

      • Jenny

        Sorry guys. I fixed the link, it should go to the ad scan now.

    • Noel

      Is the m&m coupon the Target coupon? Will they take that?

    • Sarah

      I can’t find the Sally Hansen coupon in the reinventing beauty mag either. I have the one with Jennifer Aniston too.

    • angela


    • Karen

      On the Clean and Clear deal you can use the $5 off Clean and Clear Advantage Blackhead Eraser Exfoliating Cleanser (see link above) on the refills. I used it at Wal Mart and paid $0.44 for the refill pack. Print 3, buy 3 refill packs, value of coupons = $15, so you should earn around $5 in ECBs. I don’t know the price of the refills at CVS but I would guess that they’re not much more than $5.44, which was the normal WalMart price.

    • Donna

      I have looked everywhere for the reinventing beauty magazine; wal-mart, CVS, etc… where are they???

      • Jenny

        They are only in CVS. Some stores are out of them and new ones are just coming out. They keep them at the front of the store near the newspaper stand. If you can’t find them and really want the coupons check ebay :)

    • Karen

      This coupon is not in the RedPlum 3/15.
      “-$1.50/3 M&M’s Candies RP 3/15 (makes it $1 ea)”
      There is a coupon for $1 off 2 bags in the 3/1 RP

    • Edie

      Answer to Msg #13
      My CVS usually has Reinventing Beauty mag in cosmetics asile

    • Mary

      These are the only coupons that are in the RIB magazine that I have WITH Jennifer Anniston on the front.


      There are no Sally Hansen in the one I got… I saw that it was in an earlier issue. They expire 3/31.

      Don’t know if this helps anyone else or not.

    • Brandi

      I went in this morning to CV and did the SS Ensembles deal (w/$3.99 refills) but I bought 4 of them and used 4 RIB coupons
      My store last week handed me a stack of just the coupon inserts!
      I ended up getting:
      4 ensembles $3.99 each
      2 boxes GLucerna cereal $4.69 each
      2 PAAS coloring kits $1.99 each
      2 Sally Hansen Nail Polish
      2 Veet $2.24 (on clearance)
      Tote Bag (Email coupon for free tote bag)
      3 Roll pack of CVS Earth Naturals Paper Towels $1.99
      4 small bags of cashews $ .79 each

      I used
      $5 off $30 purchase from last receipt (used first)
      4 x $2 off Ensemble coupons from RIB
      2 x $5 off Glucerna Cereal printables (Scan w/out beeping and gave me overage
      $3/2 Sally hansen coupon
      2 x $2 off Veet coupon from RIB
      Email coupon for Free tote bag
      2 x $2 off any 2 CVS nut (Printed from scanner)
      $1 off any CVS Paper towels 3 pk or larger (printed from scanner)

      Total came to $42.00
      After coupons total cme to $11.74
      Used $4 ECB and paid $7.74 cash – GOT $11.98 back in ECB’s!!
      Pretty good trip for me, not the best but I was happy with it, and the limit on the SS deal is 3 so I can use some of my ECB’s and go back and get some more.

    • Catie


      Could you use both the RIB Q for the Veet and also the printable together for a total of $4 off or am I missing something? Could you do the same for the same for the SoftSoap

      • Jenny


        I’m pretty sure both of those coupons in the RIB are really manufacturer coupons and not store coupons so you can only use one. If the bar code starts with a 4 though, they are store coupons and can be stacked with a manufacturer coupon.

    • Whitney

      Be careful if you are going to purchase the Rejuvenating Beauty Mag at CVS. I grabbed two different ones today, and they must have been old because all of the coupons were expired (with the exception of one of the Sally Hansen ones, which exp 3/31/09). Does anyone know what’s on the cover of the most recent one? These have America Ferrara and Kate Hudson on the front.

    • Whitney
    • Diane

      CVS in Ballentine had some of the mag’s with the Sally Hansen coupons.

    • Mary

      I checked this morning and the Sally Hansen Q is in the RIB that has Kate Hudson on the front.

    • Just FYI iheartcvs.com has all the sales 6 months in advance.

    • Stacey

      HOw do you find the lysol cvs coupon. I looked on their site and I can’t find it. I am new to the game so maybe I am not looking in the right spot.

      • Jenny

        That coupon was only good through Sunday but in the future it was one of the ones that they email out so you won’t find it on there site, just in your email.

    • Kelly

      Where can I get a Softsoap rebate form? I do not have any Krogers/Publix in my area? THank you for this site; This is my 3nd week. I am so thankful for all my savings; it is truly mind-blowing. My family cannot believe what I am paying for things!!!

    • Zonya

      Do Smart Source inserts vary from area to area? Mine for 3/22 doesn’t have the soft soap coupon.

      • Jenny

        They do vary by area on the coupons that are included and the value of coupons. Most areas got a $1 off any Softsoap 8oz or larger and this works for the ensembles too. Large cities got the $2 coupon.

    • Ann

      How often do the Reinventing Beauty mags come out? I can’t find a date on them. Thanks!

      • Jenny

        They come out quarterly. A new copy just came out a week or so ago.

    • Juli Anne

      I went to CVS with a friend tonight and they said she could not use 2 coupons when getting B1G1 items. She insisted and they finally gave in, but they kept saying that she was only buying one item. What is the best way to deal with this if it happens again?

      • Jenny

        Juli Anne,
        You did it just right, just stand firm. Telling them that you have two items and the price that they are selling for does not matter with coupon redemption. The store will still get fully reimbursed, and it is the store that decided to make the other item free not the manufacturer.

    • Mel

      My question is the same as one previous. Do you have to do something special to get the print out of $4/$20 on your receipt? A friend of mine gets this all the time – I haven’t as of yet get one. How do you?

    • ShanR

      Shannon N – I am not on Hot Coupon World, but I would love to get a Softsoap MIR from you. Is there another way to do this?

    • Emily

      If I have the All You coupon for the free Rimmel mascara can I use it on the B1G1 deal and bascially get two for free?

      • Jenny

        Yes. You can get two for nothing!

    • Holly

      I got a softsoap rebate form at K-mart. They had a display on a shelf in one of the beauty aisles that looked like they change it often (no price tags.) It’s a cardboard display about 3 feet wide and has 3 rows of softsoap pumps on them.

    • Liz

      I need help from all of you professional couponers-I’m new and getting extremely frustrated because my local Wal-mart and CVS will no longer take printable coupons. I live in a small area and Food Lion is the only one that will take these now. Has anyone else run into this same situation?????

    • Sharon

      Suggestion: Call or better to go meet Manager’s and explain the situation and how you use them to make your budget go a little further. I had EXCELLENT response and Im able to use them now where before they were refused.
