Whenever I am in need of anything, I always run down the block to Walgreens. It’s one of my go-to stores when I need something in a pinch. With a tight budget this month, I had to cut out a few non-essential things. One of which is my bi-monthly trip to the nail salon. At $40 a visit for a manicure and pedicure, I just couldn’t fit it into my budget. So, I decided to treat myself at home by giving myself a quick little pedicure. With a little work and a few great products, I could give myself a semi-professional look with a fraction of the price. I ran over to Walgreens and using my Walgreens app, I was able to save $5 using my Balance Rewards Card and Paperless coupons. I love saving extra cash!
If you are wondering what Walgreens Paperless Coupons are, I’ll tell you! They are manufacturer eCoupons that you can “clip” to your Walgreens Balance Rewards account and redeem when you purchase a product at the store. To make sure that you will receive your savings, sync your Balance Rewards membership to the Mobile App. Each paperless coupon can only be used once. Once it is redeemed it will be deleted from your coupon list.
After looking through the offers and clipping a few paperless coupons, I walked into Walgreens and headed for the beauty aisle. The beauty aisle at my local Walgreens is immediately on the left when you walk through the door (so I didn’t have to walk too far.) I consulted my Walgreens app to make sure that I was purchasing the products that corresponded to the paperless coupons I clipped earlier. I picked up my nail polish, nail polish remover, and pedicure kit and headed to the checkout counter. They scanned the barcode on my phone (which gave them my Balance Rewards Card and allowed me to redeem the clipped paperless coupons) and my savings instantly came off of the total price. I paid and headed home to give myself a pedicure.
First, I removed the nail polish from my nails using the nail polish remover pads I bought at Walgreens. I then got a container and filled it with some hot water, bath salts, and a little bit of bubble bath. I soaked my feet for a few minutes and then scrubbed the bottoms using a pumice stone. I dried my feet and applied some lotion. I then cleaned my toe nails again using the nail polish remover pads.
I applied my base coat and allowed it to dry. I then applied two coats of my polish, allowing each coat to dry before applying the next. After allowing the polish to dry, I applied a final top coat.
With just 20 minutes and a few beauty products, I have a great pedicure without leaving my house. Plus, I didn’t have to pay $15 for a pedicure. I paid about $30 for the products (with the savings) and will get several uses out of everything.
Next time you head to Walgreens, check out the Mobile App and see if you can save some extra cash with Paperless Coupons. With the $5 I saved at Walgreens by using the Paperless Coupons, and with the money I will be saving by not going to the nail salon, I will probably put the savings towards one of my bills.
