      how are you getting the bubble mailers and rimmel cosmetics free?

    • Leah

      How are the soft soaps free? The IP coupon I found specified not to be redeemed on elements, which is the soft soap that is on sale at various stores. Please advise!?!

    • Kelly

      I don’t see how you’re getting the Herbal Essences Free at Rite Aide. They are 2/$6 and after rebate 2/$4. With a dollar q would make it 2/$2 plus you could get the free styler with each one of these. This is a good deal but not free!!
