notes:i sure hope recyclebank starts offering cvs coupons again.

revlon is not coming up on the receipt tallies. we can buy more than 6, but all of the eb printing are coded the same... that means once you redeem one, the rest will beep and come up as already used.

...unless you buy a different number of revlon each time. then your eb will be for different amounts ($5, $10, $15 etc.) and as long as you only have one of each amount, they will go through beeplessly.

hopefully they will have it fixed monday or tuesday morning!

update 9/20: looks like cvs did something to fix this! people are reporting no problems when using their revlon eb even though they are coded the same!
