Great job!

Good luck on finding the Oasis and energy drinks. They're such a great thing to roll when you can use a $/$ CRT and actually make money on the deal.

Great work! They let you use 3 of the CVS batteries coupon in one transaction? Wow, I may have to try that.

I only used 2 of the battery coupons in one transaction. I was planning on getting the energy drinks but they didn't have them. I figured I would try it and if they said something then I would just buy 1 set of the batteries, but I was hoping it would work bc then the 5/15 coupon would cover the cost of the Playtex (which I still had $1 coupon for). I didn't have any 2/10s with me, so luckily it worked with no problem. If I can't find the energy drinks or Oasis anywhere, I guess I'll just keep getting batteries and candy bar or something and using the 5 CVS coupon and the 1 man one for basically no OOP.

You aren't supposed to be able to use more than one of the battery coupons at all--much less in the same transaction! My CVS people suck, I say... they suck!

way to go!!

All the $/$$ coupons also say limit one per customer, you would think that they would track it somehow with the card, but if they aren't going to...but then again, I'm unethical!!!

The 5/15 is on the coupon thing Michelle B posted-coupon gold mine was the title of the thread.

Thanks I had seen the 3/15 but not the 5/15. I saved it in my favorites!

Kim - my CVS sucks too. I can only use 1 $/$$ coupon per transaction. I didn't try using more than 1 of the $5 energizer ones because I know they would say no. Although the other day when I was out running errand I stopped at 4 different CVS stores since I had to go past them anyway it didn't cost me any gas and dh was watching the kids so it was my alone time!!!

My CVS is usually great about using certain coupons together but they irritated me on Saturday. I had used a 4/20 and the $50 Contour coupon together. But when I checked the receipt, the $4 didn't go through. I went back in and told the manager (different one from the one I usually see) and he said you can't use the two together. Ummmm....I have two other receipts that show I can, thank you very much. Two other times that I bought a Contour, I used a 4/20 with the $50 coupon. But suddenly, it won't work. Yeah, whatever. That's all well and good if it's "against CVS policy". But why did the hooker take the 4/20, know that it didn't go through, and yet kept it like it did go through? I asked this question and went on to add that it was basically stealing the coupon. And she smiled cluelessly like I'd given her a compliment. So he dug through the pouch of coupons and came up with one. It was not mine. I rattled off the last four digits of the card and the fact that mine expires on the 21st. I know my coupons and I know what I can use with what. Stupid hookers.

I don't stack $/$$ coupons ... I just can't bring myself to do it.

But she wasn't stacking, right? She was just using it with another CVS coupon. Should have been perfectly legit.

I stack, shamelessly. My managers are all about it so why not? I was shopping the other day and pulled out my $/$$ to get out a $10/$50 and the cashier said something about how she could only take 1 of the $2/$10 and the manager piped up that no she could take both since they were different ones (one was white and one was blue)...mmm, I wasn't even going to use them but ok, here you go.

I do stack as long as the total purchase price equals the total qualifying purchase price. For example, 2/10 and a 4/20 on a $30 order. And they don't say anything about it and it goes through. But a CVS coupon for jn individual item and then an x off x amount purchase is not stacking. Funny how my $1 off Playtex item CRT went through. And I used the same coupons together twice before. They make it up as they go along sometimes, just like WAG.

WTG Kris! They won't let me use the energizer coupon more than once in a transaction. I have to do separate transactions. I have been trying to go to CVS once a day for free batteries!
