notes:i had meant to throw in a filler to reach $20 before tax, but i completely forgot. the $5/$20 still went through though.

the $2 off 2 gold emblem nut crt would not go through. the cashier said it was because of my being $.05 short of a $20 subtotal - but that really doesn't make any sense. i read on slickdeals that others have had the same problem combining the nut crt with the $5/$20 and the theory is that the crt is incorrectly coded as $2/$10. so in order to use both without beeps, your subtotal would have to be $30 or more.
