I stopped at two CVS's today and neither had the excedrin. errrrrr!

Looks like your February will be profitable, way to go.

Those are some great shopping trips! I didn't realize the L'Oreal deal was more than 1 - I'll have to go back and get some more :)

Precious said...

Good job Suz! Don't forget the no form needed rebate on the L'oreal.

Thanks for the tip on the Natural Dentist rinse, we actually use the stuff! Will the rebate be accepted if I use the $2 coupon as it says "do not combine with other offers"? hoping so!

Laurie,
Me too!

Lisa,
I'm on the hunt for two more L'oreal face washes for my boyfriend's card. I have a $10 EB to use by Wednesday, so the pressure's on! :) If I can't find them, I guess I'll just get some free after EB monthly items.

Tanya,
Oh yes, its limit 2. :)

Precious,
I thought the Loreal rebate (for movie tickets I think?) was only good for the makeup items.

cupunlvr,
The rebate says "$10 rebate when you buy 2" so I am confident you'll get back the full $10. I use coupons on rebate items a lot and only once in a blue moon do they give you back the rebate amount minus the coupon value.

Suz,

You are right. I just re-read the info on it and it does exclude the cleansers. Shucks! Sorry I was wrong!

Thanks for the tip on the natural dentist stuff. I use my rebate money for vacation funds, so this will be another $20 to add to it!

I'm going to check my local cvs again today for the excedrin and roll my $10 ecb again into the Loreal cleansers! Thanks for posting these great deals.
