It looks great to me! Your OOP is awesomely low. And you're rolling your EB's just fine.

Two questions:

Do you have any addtional EB's to go with the $11.98 you'll get from these transactions?

Have you done the energy drink or Oasis deals yet this month?

If you do either or both of those monthly deals, you can really roll those EB's into larger ones.

Oh, and I just noticed-- the register will probably only take off $.99 for the tissues if that's the actual price. But even so, it's just a few cents difference.

The only "problems" I see with this are as follows:

1) the EBs from multiple transactions going to the same deal may take longer to print. 48 hours, even. If you don't mind waiting a bit, then go for it.

2) the tissue coupon says on it, "one per customer per day." I'm not sure if they track it with the card number or not, or if your store would enforce that. You'd have to see.

Other than that, it looks like a great plan!!

I still have 104.88 in EB. I did the Oasis and Energy drink already just to roll the EB over before they expired. I spent $40.00 EB and got back like $50.95. I also did the P&G, Tums, and Listerine. I am not sure what else to do. Any suggestions?

I don't think the multiple transactions on the same deal will be a problem. I did two transactions last week with the Charmin on one and the rest of the P&G deal on the other and the EB printed right then. I may have also split up the Pepsi deal over those two transactions ( I don't remember).

Where's the 5.00 CVS battery coupon? I'd want one (or two) of those!!

And HOLY CRAP! you have a lot of EBs. I'm jealous.

It may vary by location, then... I've had them take a couple days to get the computers to catch up. So did Renee a couple weeks ago.

Whoa, lady!! You sure do have alot of EB's.

You come in here all quiet and unassuming while you're rolling those deals and CVS'ing like an old pro. Good for you!

You were able to find all five of the Oasis products? I've found three so far, but only bought two. Of course, I have three cards so I'm looking for alot more than the average person.

Hmmmmm.....I haven't taken a good look at the monthly flyer. I think you've done all of the really good ones already. And next week's ad doesn't look so great. Did you do the Fusion razor where you can get it for free after the $4 manu. coupon and EB's? There is also the Quattro razor coming up next week that you can get for more than free with the coupie in Sunday's paper and EB's. I actually think they might lure me into buying more razors. Darn you, CVS!

Have you seen the preview? I can go find the link so you can see what you might want to get. From what I recall, not too many good EB rolling deals though.

I am pretty sure that the coke deal is a limit two, though!! On my receipt, it didn't say "limit reached" after I got them! That's one way to roll some a little bit... use a 5/15 or a 2/10 or something, with some EBs. It's only 3 EBs back, but you're freaking loaded!

Kim, the CVS battery coupon was in the same email as the tissue coupon. If you do not still have that one LMK and I will forward my email to you.

Ohhhhhh... I'll have to log onto AOL and see...

I know I got that email... but it was a "free gift" link that I clicked. I could perhaps be guilty of the Kim skim again for the rest of the email.

Nope. The other coupons linked on mine are for BOGO trident (which I hadn't noticed before either. I need that coupon... ), 1.00/listerine, and 1.00/halls, and the details on the free cvs cough drops... no batteries coupon for me...

can you forward it to me?

I got the free tissue coupon email yesterday. But I didn't notice any other coupons linked to it. Not that I can print them so it's a moot point.

Do you want the emails, Mandi? These are freaking awesome! I can get the batteries for .29 a pack!!! Overage, even, if I use the current manu coupons in addition! If they'll let me get overage... maybe just free.
