10 olay Total Effects body wash @ 4.79
10 ivory 10 packs @ 3.59 ea

4 scrubbing bubbles bath cleaner @ 2.99 ea
tender tape for my broken finger 2.99

2 John Frieda shampoos @ $4.99

-3 $2 vocal point cpns for crystal lite pure
--10 $4 Olay Total Effects BW mfg cpns -$4.79 x10 = - $47.29 Olay body wash - the free ivory soap attatched to this making it free

The total bill was 204.23

After coupons were deducted the total was $25.40

The $5 GC was for purchasing any 4 scrubbing bubble products. I picked the cheapest items at 2.99 each and had $1 cpns on each. Not a bad deal for that much product.

Great trip! I'm curious about the Clorox 2 Q... I saw it on the bottles yesterday as buy Clorox 2 at $8.49, get 1 Clorox bleach (gallon, I think) free.

Are you saying that coupon attached itself to the Clorox 2 rather than the gallon of bleach? That would be amazing!!

Are you saying that coupon attached itself to the Clorox 2 rather than the gallon of bleach? That would be amazing!!
Last night I was reading somewhere on AFC on how to hand the coupons to the cashier, so I paid attention to that and lined them up like this:

Target cpns for $x/$xxpurchase
All mfg cpns in this order:
B2G1 first
BOGO next
Highest value cpns in descending order
ie: $5, $4, $3, $2, etc.
Then remaining Target Coupons with GC generating cpns last

So I put the "Free"/wyb clorox cpn ahead of the $2 clorox cpn, and it attatched itself to Clorox 2 making it free, then it took $2 off the bleach which was only 1.66!

The same thing happened with the Ivory soap. It was a "Free"/wyb body wash, and I had $4 body wash cpns, but when I put it first, the free cpn attached itself to the body wash and took off the whole $4.79 instead of 4.00.

I wish I knew who posted that info! I typed it and printed it and put it in with my coupons, so I won't forget!
