Return incorrect Colgate

– tax $1.01
– subtotal $14.99 (Manager then deducted the $2 & $2 EB/s that I earned)
+$10.99 Gift Card for me…Yaaay!

I really hated to ask for a refund since I had paid with EB’s but I just could not justify paying $13.98-$4 EB=$9.98 for 4 tubes of toothpaste. In addition I used $3 worth of coupons towards this purchase therefore when I made my next Colgate purchase I did not hand the cashier another set of $1.50/1 Colgate coupons for any of the next 6 boxes.

    Domestic…that's a good question.

    I actually only went in to make transactions 1&2. My husband dropped me off while he went to the gym. He took such a long time getting back that while I browsed I made more purchases. As I looked through my coupons while I waited I saw that I could get some more items using the EB's that I had.

    I rarely plan more than 2-3 transactions

    Wow! You did an amazing job! It’s overwhelming to try and figure out how you accomplished all of this, though. I still have a lot to learn.

    One question I had was this.. why did you make so many separate transactions?

    Thanks for stopping by my blog!
