...think that this Breeze deal is such a more pleasant experience than the Nova Max deal? I have got 5 so far and have had NO problems. Maybe these cashiers finally got this whole coupon thing down??? I had such problems with the Nova Max deal EVERY FREAKING TIME. I even have 4 raincheck left for the Nova Maxes and I just can't bring myself to snag them up even though the shelves are full of them now.

Well, the day I got the 3 Breezes at the one store it was a young kid and he rang it up with no problem and no comments or questions! The 2nd store only let me use 1 of the coupons, but better than nothing! However , I haven't found any at 2 other stores, though.

I have seen only a few of the Novas. How did they write your rain check? Will you still be able to get a gc or something for the 20EB?

I haven't even tried yet. I had such bad luck with the novas, that I'm sure I won't find any. Besides that, I'm afraid to leave the house! I have all four kids home right now, and I am scared. I have to go out soon, though, so I'm building up the nerve. lol Is this a week thing or a month thing???

It's all month Kim. I hope you get some better luck with this than you did with the Novas! Do the girls go back to school on Monday? Hopefully then you can start to have some kind of routine and hopefully get out there to shop/save!!

They go Tuesday, but that's a good thing since I have an appointment an hour away for the baby on Monday. I may need their help--a LOT! My little man does NOT like riding! yikes. He really seems to like my oldest, though. I went to the store tonight, and he started to cry, but she got him quiet again right away. When his daddy was here with him, he screamed his fool head off... so I think Rina may be pretty good help with him.

Yea the raincheck says money card in lieu of EBs. I have used one already a few weeks ago. It's just such a pain in the ***** to do.

The word is out though on the Breeze's. Last night I went to one store and got 2 and the lady said someone was just in and bought 5. Then today and went to another store because I had seen 2 there two days before, so I went in to snag them and sure enough they were gone. But the store 2 minutes from my house had 6! I only got 3 though. I am hoping the other 3 will still be there waiting for me tomorrow.

Kim, I can barely go out with 2 kids! I would definitely wait until school is back in. LOL

You should have hidden them. Miss unethical-pants, Teri would have.

Totally thought about it, but 2 CVS employees were unloading there stuff in that same aisle! I love load days at CVS. Probably explains why they had 6 of them there.

So you did think about hiding them! I'm glad my unethical-ness is rubbing off. You know what though? If someone truly wanted one of these things, you'd think they'd rifle through them all just in case. I know I do. So I don't feel bad at all for hiding them. Too lazy to look for them? You snooze, you lose when Teri's around.

I totally agree. When I was on the Nova Max prowl I could seriously feel my face light up when I saw that yellow and blue box.

I always did that when I was looking for a Nova and at the 2 stores I didn't find them I looked through all of them!

It still feels weird to me to NOT look for Novas. I saw two on the shelf the other day and was a little sad when I realized they mean nothing to me now. But how freakin' exciting was it to see them just a month ago?

I agree that the Breeze deal has gone alot easier than the Nova did. Maybe it's because I've gotten used to holding up the line and being all nervous until the receipt prints out my EB's. Or because I've gotten really easy managers who don't mind me buying out their store's supply. I don't know but I like it.

I hate that all the employees recognize me at my neighborhood CVS' though. One kid calls me "the most efficient CVS shopper" and once told me (joking of course) that they have a code for when I come in.

i think it will be easier with the breeze's cuz they are a more well known product that they sell more of, so they will keep them in stock better

I was shot down tonight on buying a Breeze with the CVS coupon. The manager said that they got an email stating that they would not allow the coupon because it was already on sale. I told her no thanks on the Breeze and left.

I hope that doesn't trickle out my way. I just got 3 more today and though it was a pain, I managed to get the deal done and my EB's and was on my merry way.
