Day 26 - Trip 1

Sadly, the store didn't have two bottles of the Olay (they only had one) and I couldn't come up with a great deal on the fly so I will go to the other CVS later in the week and either use my overage for some stuff I need/want or just get 4 bottles for free (if they have 4 bottles!). Also there were no DVD coupons and the store manager (who works the photo section) didn't know what I was talking about.

Transaction 1:

4 bags of Lifesavers - on sale BOGO at $2.19 so $4.38
2 big bags of M&Ms - $5
2 small bags of M&Ms - $1
1 box of Tums QuikPak - $3.69
1 pack of makeup removing wipes - $2.99

Used $2 skincare coupon, $2.25 Tums coupon, $2 Tums CRT, 2 BOGO Lifesavers coupons* ($4.38), $5 ECBs. Paid $1.64 (21 cents tax). Got back $6 ($5 for candy, $1 for wipes).

*The Lifesaver coupons beeped. I'm not the first person to report this problem. Beware. My store's manager let me use them (they're legit! I have no idea why they beep!) but you may have trouble.

Transaction 2:

1 double paper - $2.50

Used $1 from wipes, paid $1.50.

The Lifesavers coupons beep because they're poorly coded. The only products they match up to are the orange mint hard candies and one other flavour. The wording says any of the flavours/varieties should work but the coupon code only matches up with the UPCs of those 2 items. It's super annoying!
