  1. My pantene $3/2 says it can only be used on 25.4oz or larger…so can it be used for this sale?

  2. I have been wondering the same thing, is the sale for the bigger bottles? Haven’t seen the ad yet!

  3. Candice & Rachelle,

    You guys are absolutely right! That’s what I get for using a coupon database and not verifying with my actual coupon!

    Thanks so much for bringing it to my attention!

  4. Stephanie,
    Thanks for your hard work! Are you going to adjust the scenarios?
    Also, how do we know where to find the coupons that are listed? I saw one from P&G, but was not sure about all of them.

    And, are you allowed to use more than one coupon on the same brand/item (e.g., Pantene) in one transaction?

    As you can tell, I am new but eager to learn.


  5. Yes, you can use more than one coupon for the same brand/item per transaction. If you bought 10 pantene, you could use 10 pantene coupons.

    I list the date & type of insert next to each coupon I list. So if it says (3/15 RP) then you can find the coupon in the RedPlum insert that came out in the March 15th newspaper.

    Thanks for the reminder about the scenarios!

  6. Seriously you are amazing! I am so new to this coupon game and LOVE all I have seen about how to save money! Thank you SOOOO much for your senarios and your deal match ups! I am learning so much……..maybe soon I will have saved enough to finally be a stay at home mom with my daughter! (My hubby thanks you too for all the savings! HA!)

  7. My CVS had one of the adidas3 (Intensive) Deoderant 50% off which made it $2.50, with the $1.00 coupon in the paper recently, and the $2 ECB that made a .50 profit! I thought some of you might like to check and see if it’s 50% off anywhere else!!

  8. The Colgate Visible White for 3.99 with 1.99 ECB also has a coupon you can find at the following website for 1.00 off. Makes it only .99!

  9. Transaction 1:

    (1) Colgate Toothpaste $3.99
    (4) Sobe LifeWater $1.79 B1G1Free
    – 75¢/1 Colgate Q
    – (2) B1G1Free Sobe
    Pay $3.24
    Earn $3.99 ECBs

    How do you pay 3.24? The toothpaste is 3.99, the Sobos are B1G1free, so if you bought 4, it is like paying for 2, so that is 3.58 for a total of 7.57 minus the .75 coupon, or 6.82, not 3.24. And you get the 3.99 ECBs. Right?

  10. Debbi,

    Here is how it would look on the receipt:

    (1) Colgate $3.99
    (1) Sobe Life Water $1.59
    (1) Sobe Life Water FREE
    (1) Sobe Life Water $1.59
    (1) Sobe Life Water FREE
    (Total = $7.17)
    – 75¢ Colgate Q
    – $1.59 Sobe B1G1 Q
    – $1.59 Sobe B1G1 Q

    Pay = $3.24

    Hope that helps!

  11. Where can you find the coupon database. Sevearl times I know I have a coupon but cannot remember what back issue it is in.

  12. Laura,

    I use hotcouponworld.com and afullcup.com.
