A Great Shopping Day!!

This afternoon my Aunt Raylene, my Mom and I made a run to CVS. Later, my Aunt Raylene and I ran to Barnes & Noble (newspapers) and JCPenney (to use the $10/$10 purchase coupon - I had two!!). Then Mike & I went to a movie (G.I. Joe) and afterwards I talked him into doing a quick Kmart run. I got some great deals! At Penney's I spent a total of $12 and got a skort, a pair of shorts, dress slacks and shirt! I did a total of three transactions at CVS. I might go back and do the L'Oreal deal again since it's too good to pass up! I had thought the limit was one per card but it doesn't say I reached my limit on my cards :) I'll post my Kmart trip tomorrow.My card:
bought L'Oreal Revitalift cream $14.99
bought L'Oreal cleanser $5.99
used $1 L'Oreal coupon
used $4/$20 face care coupon (from Readyfill booklet)
used $10 ECBs
=$2 OOP, received $10 ECBs

I'll also mail off for this great deal.

Mike's card trans. #1:
did the L'Oreal deal on Mike's card also

Mike's card trans. #2:
8 bottles SoBe $1.79 each, BOGO free
used (4) BOGO free SoBe coupons
2 packs Papermate pens $.99 each, get $.99
2 packs filler paper $.99 each, get $.99
Phillips headphones $6.99, get $6.99
Colgate toothpaste $2.99, get $1
used $1 Colgate coupon
used $4/$20 CVS coupon (readyfill booklet)
used $10 ECBs (adjusted down to $9.97)
=$0 OOP!!!, received $11.95 ECBs

I have no idea how my OOP was $0, I should have at least paid tax, but hey, I'm not complaining!!

thanks for the info on the loreal and links to the coupons, I did it twice on one card using two transations the first being 1.20 of which 1.19 was tax EXCITING! I am anticipating what the results of the eye duo will be ;)
