notes:

i didn't have any problem using the nivea crt on the $.99 nivea soft, even when i didn't buy anything else so the coupon had to be adjusted and it was obvious that i was getting the nivea free. (except tax)

ymmv since the coupon does say "exclusions apply." the "exclusions" are not listed on the coupon, so it will be up to your cashier whether or not to allow it to be used on the $.99 items.
