    Went to CVS to get the peanut butter deal and discovered a great deal on mascara for my teenage daughters. Scanned CVS card received $5 off $15 cosmetic purchase. Mascara is on sale buy one get one 1/2 off. Spend $20 get $5 ECB. Had 4 $2 coupons. Total paid for 4 including ECB $12.42 or $3.11 cent each!

    bojoco, when you are doing the online shopping if you place the pointer over the picture of the item you should see the sale price, otherwise it'll look like it's at regular price. Hope this helps. That's the way I do it.

    smolder13 - I have no idea. I have never heard of that happening. Very strange. Did you get the suspension message via e-mail? Maybe it's spam. Do you get the same message when you try to access Twitter? I guess you have to contact Twitter directly to inquire. Maybe your Twitter account was hacked.

    Thanks for the well wishes about my youngest. They think it is just a sprain but it's in the growth plate so they can't be sure, apparently. So, she has a brace and we go back in 3 weeks for next follow-up. Thankfully no cast! Jdouglas - not the trumpet player. :-)

    Clinton, you may want to call the store today to see what they are willing to do. Did they take the coupon from you but not credit it correctly or do you still have the coupon? If they took the coupon you will want to call to talk to a mgr asap.

    Oh Faye! I hope your daughter's arm is ok. Is it the one who was in the band competition? A sprained/broken wrist is not going to make playing an instrument very easy :(

    Hope you both get good news and that she feels better. Life is never dull even without kids LOL.

    I looked over my riteaid receipt and they missed scanning one of my coupons. I was in a hurry and wasn't working closely. I received 2.00 ups on the item. If I return and re-purchase with coupon will they take the up reward back??

    I have a Twitter question for any seasoned Twitter users out there. I signed up for an acct a few days ago only because so many Ibotta Q's are now requiring a twitter share to get the full amt of the Q. Since then all I have done using twitter is enter the HT giveaway (twice) and I went through my Ibotta account and clicked on all the coupons that required a twitter share. Now my twitter account has been suspended for "sending multiple unsolicited mentions to other users." I don't know what that means (despite reading the FAQ's) and have no idea what I did wrong. Can anyone shed some light?

    LOL Faye.... hope your daughter's arm gets better and isn't fractured!

    Because life is never dull when you have kids, I will now be heading over to the orthopedics's office to get an x-ray for my daughter's arm for a possible wrist fracture. She fell while walking - nothing even remotely exciting. Hopefully it is just a sprain. See you all this afternoon.

    Bojoco, make sure you are on list view rather than grid view on HT's onine shopping site. Also, if it is BOGO, just divide the regular price in half. Otherwise, it usually will show the sale price in the list view.

    Just a quick reminder - if you head over to an Outback Steakhouse today and mention Ryan Newman to your server, you'll get a free Bloomin' Onion with any purchase. (This offer is good today only, September 30.)
