    Great job at CVS, scoutmom! My magic coupon machine was broken when I went earlier this week! The horrors! Luckily I had already printed out the Colgate $2.50 and used it.

    I went to CVS tonight and after reading yours looked at my receipt. I had bought 6-12 packs and it says at the bottom 9.99 to my next reward! I am going back tomorrow.

    I did so well at CVS tonight. I got the 6 12 packs, 2 Nivea Lip Butters, 2 of the Nature Made Minis, 2 Crest Toothpaste and 1 Colgate Toothpaste. I had a $10 off 50, $10 CVS off the Minis, $2.50 CVS off the Colgate, 30% off CVS coupon, $10 ecbs and various manufacturers coupons. I paid $9.80 OOP and got back $10 in ecbs.

    When I go tomorrow to check out the coke thing I am also going to pick up L'oreal nail polish. I have a $4 off $12 CVS coupon for cosmetics, a $3 off L'oreal nail polish print out from CVS and 2-$1 MCs. I should pay $3 plus tax oop and get back $4 in ecbs. I still need to look at what printed out of the magic coupon machine, it went crazy tonight.

    smolder, I would show that to the cashier first (make sure you bring the receipt) and ask them if it's true you can do it again.

    That would be awesome and most of the cashiers are happy to force the ECB if they have a valid reason to.

    I heard on the radio driving home that Wegmans is officially not interested in buying HT.

    Just got back from CVS and I am a little confused by my receipt. I did the coke deal (buy $15, get $5 in ECB) and the ad specifies limit 1 per household. I spent a little over the $15 and got the $5 ECB, however at the bottom of my receipt it shows that I can spend another 13.54 to earn the reward again. Has anyone ever had this happen to them? Where the limit on the ECB in the ad doesn't match what your receipt says? I'd love to do the deal again if it is really going to husband really goes through those diet coke 2L!

    thanks for the info on the asparagus LAXmom; It's quite tasty in a quiche or even soup..mmmmm...and with the cold weather we are supposed to have tomorrow, soup or chilli sounds like it may be a winner!

    MsPEAH...the till exhange means that the register must have locked up due to much money it and the manager took out some money to unlock. i would ask them if they have a copy of your receipt on file or try to return the items and have them re-ring it to get a new receipt.
