I’m finished with my Christmas shopping, but tagged along with my mom yesterday afternoon to finish up her last couple of gifts. I had a massive amount of coupons for stores like Express, Hallmark, Victoria Secret and Ulta, so I decided to cash-in and get myself some goodies.
I don’t know if any of you received the VS cards that are worth $10-$500. I had two. I wanted some new sweats (my black ones are so worn in they almost look gray). I asked the cashier if she’d ring up my purchases separate so I could use both cards. One was worth $10 (big surprise, right?). Then, much to my surprise the other was worth $50!!! I was pretty excited about that. Making my purchase just $34 instead of $94.
Then it was on to Ulta, were I had a reward coupon to cash in. I know what you are thinking when you see bright yellow nail polish. Wow, what is this girl thinking. This is Pittsburgh…and I practically live at Heinz Field and Consol Energy Center this time of year. Yellow nail polish is only appropriate. Total cost of this purchase $0.
Next stop, Express. $15 coupon for any purchase totaling $15 or more. Since I didn’t really need anything, I decided to see how much of a bargain I could get with this coupon. My grand total $1.10! I purchased a wristlet and a lip gloss.
Finally it was onto Hallmark with a $5 coupon. Making my adorable new Pittsburgh Penguins ornaments just $5.
All and all, I’d say this was a very successful shopping trip!
