notes:

remember, as long as you spend 98% of the required amount your eb will print! so for the nexxus deal, you really need $19.60 and for the physicians formula you need $9.80.

the small nexxus hairspray actually works out to be free if you use a 25% off coupon and $3 coupon. but the $3 coupons are limited to 2 per trip, and the cashier may not allow the $3 coupon to be used if they consider this hairspray trial/travel size. they don't say trial/travel and are not located in the trial/travel section, however i do see that the receipt says "nxxs max hrspr ts," which i would guess stands for trial/travel size. ymmv!

this transaction also gives me $32.87 towards the beauty club!
