    CVS has a 10.00 extra buck deal on Nexxus shampoo/conditioner. Bought the 28.50 conditioner-10.00 Extra buck-3.00 mfg coupon I found on off (cvs email coupon)=10.00!!! WOW

    I would give it a try with a store q and a mq. Let them keep it if they reject the coupons and you don't need it.

    My first experience with the new Walgreen's deal was not good. I asked if they needed my phone number for the points and they said the system was down so I got no points. This was sometime around 1 pm. I wonder if I email them my receipt if I can get the points?
