♥ profit on both transactions combined: $2.17 ♥

notes:the cashier only rang up one of my boyfriend's tissue paper, which is why his total was actually less than $30 before tax. it still worked out ok though, since the $5/$30 and eb went through anyway.

that's a funny thing about bogo sales, your subtotal can go negative because the register accepts coupons based on the total before the bogo is taken off. that's why our eb went through without being adjusted, even though they were more than the total before tax!

ps - the green bag tag still isn't adding to the tally.
