Run Do Not Walk To Your CVS*

Back around Christmas time, I noticed that the Christmas fragrance sets went on sale a couple times but they never really got clearanced. First they were 50%, then they were BOGO 50% and then they went back to full price for the few weeks before Valentine's Day. I really forgot about them until I went to CVS today to get some of the Softsoap body wash/scrub, which netted me 50 cents after Extrabucks and my $1 off coupon. Out of curiousity, I picked up one of the sets I had my eyes on (the Harajuku Lovers G fragrance set) and went over to the scanner to see what the price was this week. $3.74! $3.74! I actually made an audible "oh my gosh" - I hope no one heard me and ran back to grab another.
Anyway, if your store has any holiday fragrance sets, I would highly recommend checking the price at the scanner machine. My store also had the Harajuku Lovers Love fragrance ($3.74) and Nina Ricci L'eau du Temps set for $4.75 or thereabouts.

WTF!!!? "G" is my fave perfume!!! Aren't the perfumes all locked up behind glass? I believe all the ones are at my local cvs. OMG if only I could find these at this price! I will be checking tomorrow, thank you!

Bianca said...

@Caitlin: Go! Let me know if you find anything and what you hauled!!

@Heather: go go go go! Be careful and don't run across the street. =p

@Spifftiff88: The gift sets at my store were up above the displays where they sometimes put new makeup collections when they don't have room around the main cosmetic area. Since they aren't individual perfumes, they aren't locked up.

That's crazy, and I thought I had gotten a good deal getting mine 50% off at Sephora after Xmas! Must definitely make a run to CVS tomorrow.

@Bianca: No problem. Hope you find something good at your store!

@Kiradris: I was expecting them to go on clearance sooner or later, in this case, it was later - much later.

@Rena: You might still be able to find things since Christmas stock could have been sent to your store (or maybe a different store close by?). I believe the only way to find this particular deal is in store, not online. =/
