notes:i got the physician's formula crt on my card, but not my boyfriend's. so not sure if most people are getting them or not. if you use it on an item less than $10, you may want to have other items in your transaction in case the cashier allows overage. of course the cashier may adjust the coupon to the price of the item, ymmv!

the physician's formula was tagged $7 off at my store. if your store doesn't have tags up, use the price checker because this seems to be a national sale even though its not in the ad.
