Default savings of $105.39!!

This is the first time I've ever typed up one of my trips but I was so happy with how it went and nobody in my "real life" would understand, so I wanted to share. I actually started off the day in a lousy mood after going to a Wags and a different CVS, both of which didn't have what I wanted & half of the sale tags weren't even up yet. (It was around 12pm). I left both of those stores empty handed, went to Starbucks for some "liquid courage" to soldier on, then I went to a different CVS and it was a dream come true. I had the sweetest newbie cashier who was also pretty cute (looked like Ben McKenzie from The OC/Southland ). I could tell he was flustered by all my different qs and ECBs but he took it in stride even though he had to call over the senior cashier a few times.

Here's what I bought:
1 Nexxus Emergencee 8.99*
1 Nexxus Leave-In Spray 11.99
2 Nature Made Omega 3 Mini 60 ct. 14.99 B1G1
1 Lumene Wipes 6.99
1 Lumene Sensitive Eye Makeup Remover 6.49
2 Rembrant Fresh Mint toothpaste @ 7.79 each
1 Gillette disposable 4ct 7.99
1 Gillette Fusion 10.99

Coupons used:
1 Gillette q $10 off
1 $10 off $50
2 $4 off Lumene
2 $2 off Rembrant toothpaste
1 $2.50 off any 2 toothpaste (redbox q)
1 $2 off $10 shaving items (redbox q)
2 $5 off Nature Made q
20% off purchase - took off $9.91

I paid with $24.99 (I think) in ECBs and a $5 e-giftcard from Swagbucks so I had $2.70 oop at the end which was all tax and got back $20 in ECBs for the Gillette deal, Rembrandt and Nexxus plus another $10 off $50 which I will use for trip #2 later this week.

*There were several Nexxus items with 50% off clearance tags which we know shouldn't count toward the deal, but this one did! I had watched Islandcoupongal's video on YT so I knew this one would work. Not sure about the other clearance stuff.

was one of the $5 off Nature Made q's from CVS or were they both the coupons.com mani? if it is a B1G1 sale and you only bought two, then you should have only been able to use one $5 manufacturer coupon, since technically you only "purchased" one.

other than that,
great haul!

Actually that is not correct. We are allowed to use 2 Mani. coupons in a BOGO sale.

Taken from their policy:

Buy One, Get One Free Coupons

• Sales tax must be paid for any Buy One, Get One Free coupon offer, if required by applicable state laws. Two coupons may be used on a Buy One, Get One Free promotion as long as it does not exceed the item total.

Example: Suave Shampoo is on sale for $2.00 Buy One, Get One Free and the customer is purchasing two shampoos; customer may use two coupons for $1.00 each and pay the applicable tax.

WHAAA??? Is this new? My cranky CVS cashier keeps telling me no. Manager also said that they could only use one when I did the Schick Silk razor deal a few weeks ago. Sorry, OP!

It's ok. I have had issues with cashiers "interpreting" store policies in their own way (haven't we all?) but that's why we are so lucky to have this wonderful forum to learn from.
