My Dream Cashier

OH NO! The $5 off $20 coupon was taken offline today. Did anyone happen to save an electronic copy? I would be forever grateful if you could send it to me! (FOUND IT!) See below...
CVS - had the nicest cashier today. On my first order, she hit some button that showed my real total so the $5 coupon wouldn't scan. Without me even saying a peep, she voided the order and re-rang everything and then DIDN'T hit that button so everything worked. How awesome is that? I did both transactions with her back to back without a problem.
  • 2 Nature's Bounty Your Life Multi-vitamins (90 ct) $9.99 each, BOGO sale and used two $5 coupons (see below) and got back $3 EB (WYB 2, Limit at least 4!) = $3.01 profit
  • Soy Joy $6, got back $6 EB (Monthly deal, limit 6) = FREE
  • 3 Rolls wrapping paper - 90% off so $0.59 each for two and $0.69 for third
  • Used $5 off $20 coupon and $2 EB I got for doing a survey (since I didn't spend anything to get this, I'm adding this to my profits), total was $0.94, overall profit = $8.06

Repeated minus the wrapping paper and $2 EB, total was $0.99, overall profit = $8.01

The $5 off $20 coupon has been taken offline, but here's a link to a PDF copy of it.

I've now bought 6 bottles of vitamins on this card and it still doesn't say limit reached. So the limit is at least four! UPDATE (thanks Jenn Mc!) The limit is six. :)

Here's how to get the $5 coupons: you enter in the codes listed here for points and then you can redeem 500 points for a $5 coupon.

Look on - may find it there.

FYI, I used the $5 coupon today (printed earlier off the actual site) and it rang up as $3 off instead of $5!!! I actually ended up spending 30 cents instead of having a small money maker, drat it.

Thanks so much! I tried that site, found someone with the Q but wasn't able to PM her, even though I signed up for an account. Sigh. I found another source though, so its all good.

That is SO weird!

It was really bizarre. I started to say something, but they were packed, and I felt bad for the cashier. I decided I was better off just paying my 30 cents net considering the money I've been making there this month. ;o)

The limit for Natures Bounty is 6 (12 bottles)

Jenn Mc,
Hoorah! Now if I could just figure out how to print more coupons....

I've never tried to do that, but I wonder if it would work. If you give it a try and it works, please let me know. Thank you so much for your kind words! :)

I always love it when I get a nice cashier. I find them alot at CVS but hardly ever @ Walgreens...
