notes:

i was a little nervous that the nexxus deal might be limit 1 per transaction, and my store doesn't have monthly sale tags up for the nexxus or physicians formula... but everything worked out perfectly!

the % off coupons do not apply to sale items, but for deals like these which generate eb but are regular price the % off (usually) applies!

my oop is rather high, but i wasn't too concerned since i am still using my cvs gift cards to pay. also, $20 eb for doing the nexxus deal twice in one transaction is harder to spend that 2 $10 eb - but i will deal with that. :)
