thermacare was sold out, but i lucked out and found the physicians formula with $3 peelies! look for this "phmatchmaker" display...


the lip gloss is $9.99 (close enough to $10 to print the $7 eb) so free with coupon!

i didn't think about the fact that i was $.02 short of the $15 needed for the $3/$15 crt i used. some say that the $/$$ coupons will go through as long as you spend 98% of the required amount. i wouldn't rely on that because the cashier can still deny you. but i didn't have any problems today - if i did i would have had to throw in some cheap candy!
