notes:i got some skippy man. coupons to combine with the crt's i recieved and wanted to get in on the sale this week! well they were sold out of skippy anyway, but i scanned my card and got yet another halloween crt!

i threw in the revlon so the $5 crt wouldn't need to be adjusted for the $4.98 in halloween items. crt's don't generally beep to be adjusted, but they will if you don't have any other items in your transaction for the overage to apply to. this can lead to problems if the cashier doesn't think they are able to adjust coupons, or thinks the coupon beeped because you didn't buy the correct items. so if you can throw in a free or cheap item, it may be worth it to avoid that whole situtation.

oh i got a raincheck for the skippy, of course. :)
