HEB has sales in a few different ways and I would like to go over them before I break down the deals. First, HEB puts items on sale or mark down, these items will be tagged as a yellow tag with a red header. Most of the time these deals are only for a few cents, so be careful that it is something that is actually on a good sale. Second, HEB will put items on Clearance and leave the items on the shelf. These items are often tagged with a yellow tag with a purple header. Most coupons work with clearance items. A lot of beauty items get tagged with an orange price sticker and thrown in a box or on a shelf marked as Sale or Clearance, keep your eyes open for these. Right now, my HEB has a whole endcap dedicated to clearance items that includes makeup and nail polish from OPI, Essie, Revlon, and L'Oreal.
HEB also accepts manufacturers coupons as well as their own in-store coupons. There is a trick with coupons though that one has to be careful of here. HEB has three different types of in-store coupons, they are all yellow (in October they are normally bright pink for Breast Cancer Awareness Month). On the bottom of the coupon there are the words "Good Only at HEB", then underneath that there is a code. It will say either M, B, or S. M stands for Manufactured Sponsored, B stands for Big Savings, and S for Store Sponsored. I have not once seen an 'S' coupon. What I want to talk about here are the M and B coupons. M coupons work like any manufacturer coupon that you would get in the mail or from a website. You can not stack other manufacturer coupons with an M coupon. B coupons, however, allow someone to stack a manufacturer coupon with a B coupon. Most beauty coupons are "B" coupons.
For example, HEB has an in-store "B" coupon for $2.00 off Revlon. Nail, Eye, and Beauty Tools. I have a coupon for $1.00 off any Revlon Color Product. I want to purchase a bottle of nail polish for $3.97. At the checkout after all my items are rung up, I hand the cashier my manufacturer coupon to scan, then my in-store "B" coupon to scan. The total discount taken off for the product is $3.00, and I pay $0.97 + tax for my nail polish.
You can click here for the HEB coupon policy that explains this methodology. Let me state again, most beauty coupons are "B" coupons, so you can get more savings!
