notes:the pur-absorb was a much larger box than i expected. it was on the bottom shelf of the vitamin section in my store.

the Dial cvs coupon went through for the full $2. if you don't buy at least $2 of merchandise, the coupon will beep and the cashier would have to enter it for $1.88. some cashiers may not know how to do that or think they aren't allowed to, so you are probably better off buying something else with the dial so that the coupon will just scan through!
