notes:
i didn't run into any stock or coupon issues, everything went swimmingly. :)

i only had about $25 in eb to pay with, so i didn't want to buy all the freebies at once. i'll be going back with the eb i just earned to get more!

i was able to use the $2 benefiber coupon because the combined value of the 2 benefiber items i bought was over $2. the limit is one for eb on the benefiber, but it was worth buying 2 and using the coupon. i could have bought just one and had the cashier adjust the coupon to $1.49, but sometimes that can be more trouble than its worth.
