CVS-Monday 48 cents OOP

I have been a lazy blogger! Here's my CVS trip from Monday. This one didn't go at all as planned but eneded up okay in the end.

4 Perts (B1G1 free)- $7.38
2 Colgates- $5.98
Children's Advil- $5.79
Toothbrush- $2.49
M&M's- $.79
Choc. Coins- $.99

minus these coupons

(4) $2.00/1 Pert
(2) $1.00/1 Colgate
$1.00/1 Oral B toothbrush
$1.00/1 Children's Advil
$11 in ECB

OOP $.48 and $11.29 in ECB back

Things that went wrong: Well, I went in for the coffee deal. See any coffee? No, I didn't either. So I decided to get the toothpaste and toothbrushes instead. Then the store manager rung me up. He took all my coupons and ECB up front. He wanted to match up the coupons, etc. Fair enough, and a good idea on his part I guess! But when he got to the last Pert coupon he was thrown for a loop. It was beeping due to the overage. He asked me what was going on! Haha. I told him it was the overage and he needed to adjust the coupon. So he then asks me how. Umm, I don't know, but by this time he was a little flustered and 3 people are behind me. So he forces the coupon through with an overage! But......since he took all my ECB and the coupon overage, CVS was owing me $1.36!!! That's when I too got flustered and had my daughter pick out 2 candies, hence the chocolate coins and M&M's. It all turned out fine. I even made a few cents in ECB.

Problem now is, I still need coffee!!

P.S. I got the Pert for the school supply rebate. You can't get just 2, since the second one will show up as "free" on the receipt.
