So when surfing the net, I happened on the Shoppers Optimum page and saw the above image. I had some coupons from Revlon that were "we are sorry our blush sticks were the crappiest product ever to be sold in a drug store" certificates that were good for any Revlon or Almay product. With the current promo of buy 2 get THREE THOUSAND optimum points I headed down to the store to see what I could find.
Now what is the difference between the two packages? I assume nothing. I didn't even notice they were different until I got home and went to take the photos.
And here is the receipt. A total of ZERO money paid and what did I get in return? 3000 shoppers optimum points.
And then I had second thoughts as I was leaving and went back. I know in theory these are ridiculous and unnecessary and that I could just take a qtip and dip in makeup remover, but I thought this would be really convenient for the mess I make when putting mascara on my bottom lashes. And while at $8 a package, no way, when they are on SALE, and 3000 bonus points, and a $5 off coupon, why not?
