notes:i bought these revlon polishes because they have the "0997" barcodes that work with the revlon coupons without beeping. ideally, your store would push the coupons through anyway... but since the current coupons don't picture nail polish you might find your store will refuse to take them when they beep.

i have a scan of a previous revlon "color cosmetic" coupon here that actually pictures nail polish. that might be helpful in convincing your store to accept the coupon.

i attempted to get confirmation from revlon on facebook that nail polish is considered one of their "color cosmetics" and that the coupon should be accepted, beeping or not... but so far they have not replied.

if you have a moment, please post on revlon's page and ask them to confirm. maybe if enough people ask they will respond and then we can have something to print and show at the store when we have problems!

update: i almost forgot about the beauty club! i already had $32.24 towards the $50, so once the revlon gets added to the tally my $5 eb should print!

update 5/29: my beauty club eb printed today. :)
