notes:the only thing i wanted that this store didn't have was the free pencils/pens!

the $3 off $12 eye care readyfill coupon beeped. it was scanned after the $4 off $20 and i think that's why. the cashier pushed it through, but i won't try to use more than one of the readyfill coupons in one transaction anymore.

speaking of readyfill, i asked for the coupons at this store and they said i could only have them if i had prescriptions with them. i will ask again when i get next week's ad, which says "just for asking."

i bought the vitamin water because they have been generating $3 eb for some people. (but not me) nobody has figured out that deal yet. it seems pretty random - even the same flavor that worked before at the same store make not generate eb on the next try! so if you want to try it, just remember its a a gamble!

speaking of random, i used 8 different eb today. here's how they rang up...
$1.98 cvs coupon (cvs notebooks exp 8/12, cvs memo books exp 8/18, or papermate exp 8/18 - have no idea which $1.98 is which)
$1.98 cvs mfr coupon (cvs notebooks exp 8/12, cvs memo books exp 8/18, or papermate exp 8/18 - have no idea which $1.98 is which)
$1.98 cvs mfr coupon (cvs notebooks exp 8/12, cvs memo books exp 8/18, or papermate exp 8/18 - have no idea which $1.98 is which)
$2 cvs mfr coupon (speedstick exp 8/18)
$2 cvs mfr coupon (speedstick exp 8/20)
$2.97 cvs coupon (papermate exp 8/12)
$3.98 cvs mfr coupon (cvs pencils exp 8/18)
$25 cvs coupon (febreze exp 8/5)

i'm happy that the $25 rang as cvs coupon! :)
