Using Mike's card:

Buy 2 CVS tissue packs $2.49, BOGO 50% off

After looking at my receipts once I got home I realized that the cashier forgot to use the $3 off coupon on the last transaction. Still not too bad of a deal.

Don't you feel bad about using two seperate cards for one household?

Nope. Do you feel bad about not leaving your name?

Well said Tanya!!!! I don't ever feel bad about using two cards. There are 3 adults (my husband, myself, and my college age sister) who live in my household along with 2 kiddos. I hardly think it is fair that my household should be limited to same amount of deals as a single person household. KWIM!!! It should be one card per adult in my opinion. My manager knows that I use my card and husbands card and never once has questioned it. I also should add though that I never clear out the shelves and only do deals on both cards if there is enough to go around.

I agree well said! I have one card for my hubby and one for me! If they don't agree with it then CVS would limit it to 1 per household! So until then I will be using 2!
