notes:i had $19 in eb on my card expiring this week ($21 including the $2 eb that printed at the scanner today) so i had to make a pretty big purchase to spend them all. it worked out great though!

if you can find the gillette proglide "sneak preview" sets at your store, they are also part of the eb deal!

i haven't maxed out the $1 eb blade deal and i have done it twice on this card, so the limit is at least 3 (but i would guess probably 5...) there is a good chance the limit is one per transaction though, so probably best to buy separately if you do this deal.

you can print 2 skinny cow coupons from their site, plus 2 from facebook - so you can get 4 free per computer you have access to. (links above)

if you noticed i paid $.06 of my tax w/ eb, this was possible because my card was not scanned at the beginning of the transaction today. otherwise the eb would have beeped to be adjusted to the total before tax.
