notes:there is a new olay mir for $15 wyb 3 Olay Facial Moisturizers, Facial Treatments, Facial Cleansers, Hand & Body Lotions, Body Washes or 6+ Bar Soap Packs. i would only need one more olay purchase to send that in.

i added the $.33 caramel when my balance went into the negative! usually you can only use eb up to the subtotal before tax is added and you have to pay the tax oop. but when you have bogo sale items in your transaction, the system will accept coupons and eb up to the amount before the bogos are deducted! in this case, you will be able to pay your tax w/ eb. the only problem is that your eb will go through without prompting for adjustment even if it causes your balance to go negative.

after paying most of my balance with coupons and eb, i saw that my balance was still over $1, so i used $1 eb. but this was a gbt eb, so it rang up as a "cvs coupon" and lowered the tax as well. that put my balance into the negative so i added the caramel.
