notes:if you'd like to get overage on the ecotrin, remember that the store coupon should be scanned after the man. coupon. and of course you'll need at least $.51 of other merchandise in your transaction.

my cashier modified the price of the icy hot to $1 so that the register would accept the $1 coupon. according to wags policy, the coupon shoulod be accepted and entered for $.99, but it seems that some employees prefer to price modify the item.

no ritz crackerfuls at my store as expected. they didn't have any signs up about the substitutions, but it doesn't matter if they have a clue about the substitutions! the substituted items automatically ring up $2 and generate the $2 rr. in fact, lack of signage may help to keep those items on the shelves longer. :)

the butterfinger was thrown in as a filler when the cashier said she would take the crackerfuls coupon. not the cheapest filler, but it seemed to be the closest.

i didn't find any of the calcium at first, but then i spotted one box on the top overstock shelves - so don't forget to look up there.
