This is one of my favorite types of sales! JC Penney's ad from Sunday showed a great sale on salon hair products, most notably a buy 2 get 1 free sale on Matrix, Biolage, and Paul Mitchell. They also have a good coupon to pair with this. Print this out to take with you, and get $5 off $35 or $15 off $75.
Here's my best buy scenario. Buy 6 of the liter sized bottles. The kind I stock up on is $21.50--but I'm only paying for 4 of them, or $86. Take off the $15, and it's $71 for 6 liters of shampoo and conditioner--we're down in Pantene price territory for Paul Mitchell quality. Now, your store will do what they want, but my store would also let me give them this $10 off $50 coupon, dropping the price even lower.
The sale lasts through September 27, which is also when the first salon coupon expires. The $10 off $50 expires on October 1.
One last plug, for the Paul Mitchell tea tree oil shampoo. I buy this in bulk, because tea tree oil is supposed to repel headlice. I don't know if it works, but (*KNOCK ON WOOD*) my kids have managed to avoid this common school plague. We all use it and love it.
