CVS 6/21

I went to CVS today and in the midst of my 5 transactions I must have missed something cause my totals weren't right. Let me explain:
Transaction #1
Soy Joy Bars $1.00
Soy Joy Bars $1.00
Soy Joy Bars $1.00
Soy Joy Bars $1.00
Soy Joy Bars $1.00

Total $5.00 used $1/5 IP = $4.00 used $3.00 ECB from last week and $1.00 Out of Pocket
Received $4.00 ECB

Transaction #2
Soy Joy Bars $1.00
Soy Joy Bars $1.00
Soy Joy Bars $1.00
Soy Joy Bars $1.00
Soy Joy Bars $1.00

Total $5.00 used $1/5 IP = $4.00 used $4.00 ECB from transaction #1 $0.00 Out of Pocket
Received $4.00 ECB

Transaction #3
Soy Joy Bars $1.00
Soy Joy Bars $1.00
Soy Joy Bars $1.00
Soy Joy Bars $1.00
Soy Joy Bars $1.00

Total $5.00 used $1/5 IP = $4.00 used $4.00 ECB from transaction #1 $0.00 Out of Pocket
Received $4.00 ECB

Transaction #4
Soy Joy Bars $1.00
Soy Joy Bars $1.00
Soy Joy Bars $1.00
Soy Joy Bars $1.00
Soy Joy Bars $1.00

Total $5.00 used $1/5 IP = $4.00 used $4.00 ECB from transaction #1 $0.00 Out of Pocket
Received $4.00 ECB

Here where something got screwy
Coppertone Nutra-Shield $8.99 used $5/1 IP = $3.99
Mitchum Deodorant $2.99 (coupon for $0.75 is in the 6/21 SS but she wouldn't let me use it)
Gummy Worms$0.99

Total before coupons $12.97
Total after coupons $ $7.97
I gave her my $4.00 ECB from Transaction #4 and the computer beeped she scanned it again and told me my total was -$0.03 ??? I never notice this stuff until I write it out in this blog. It looks like she scanned my $4.00 ECB twice cause my receipt says CVS Coupon $8.00


I got $32.97 worth of merchandise for the $1.00 Out of Pocket I spent in transaction #1 (with the cashiers mistake apparently) I got back $2.00 ECB for the Coppertone and $1.00 ECB for the deodorant. I wanted to do the $5.00 challenge, does it still count? I can't believe I got 20 Soy Joy bars for $1

I've read so much stuff about CVS and how to shop there, but I still get confused. I'm worried to try it and lose out on some money.

Courtney - Lots of people are unsure at first cause there are such great deals, but you can always return stuff if you do it wrong.
