Go print some 5/15 coupons, and break them up a bit...


2 colgate 5.98
1 excederin 1.99
4 soy joy 4.00
1 Garnier 2.99
1 palmolive 1.49

total: 16.45

use the 5/15 (11.45) two 1.00 colgate coupons (9.45), 2.00 excederin (7.45), 1.00 Garnier (6.45) and however the soy joy coupons work (is it 1.00 each, bogo, etc? I don't know...) and however/whatever palmolive Q. Get back: 12.00 in EBs.

Then get:

1 colgate 2.99
5 soy joy 5.00 (the extra is to get you over the 15 dollar mark)
2 vive pros 8.00

total: 15.99.

use the 5/15 (10.99), 1.00 colgate (9.99), 2.00 vive (7.99), soy joy?? don't know, again... and some EBs to bring it down to as close to zero OOP as you can. Get back: 10.00 in EBs, and a credit of 1 toward your next 4.00 on soy joy bars. Just keep doing them at 15.00 increments--that way you save more with the 5/15s and using some EBs as you go will keep the OOP down.
