Surprise On My CVS Trip

I didn't go out shopping at all today and I didn't realize that my Free Natural Instincts coupons were going to expire tomorrow and I don't shop on Sunday. So, I headed to CVS at 11 pm tonight and I had a very pleasant surprise at checkout!
  • 2 boxes of Clairol Natural Instincts Hair Dye, $8.99 each - Used 2 Free product coupons (Facebook offer) = 2 for Free
  • 1 Gallon of TG Lee Milk, $3.89
Ok, so by all accounts, I should have gotten the hair dye for free and paid for my milk - I had a $1 ecb out and everything. As the cashier rang everything up, I gave him my free coupons first and the screen said the hair dyes were $8.99 each, so he input each coupon at $8.99. After he took off those coupons, I looked at my total and it said 73¢. I was very confused so I read over the charges to make sure he didn't make the coupon value too high and everything was as it should be but under my coupons was listed "Extra Care Savings" and it had deducted another $4. I even asked the cashier why that happened and he had no idea. I wasn't complaining, I mean I was paying less than I thought, but when you use coupons a lot you kind of have a constant idea of what your total will be so it always throws me for a loop when something like that happens.

So, when I left the store, I read my receipt more carefully. It showed that the Hair Dyes' price changed after everything else and went from $8.99 to $6.99 each, I'm guessing it's because I bought 2 together or something like that. Either way, that $4 was deducted off my remaining total, so for everything pictured, I paid 73¢! Woo Hoo :)

Also, I noticed this particular color had these taller top pieces on the boxes:

They included a free small bottle of Pantene Shampoo (not travel size but not full size) and $27 in coupons. Since I don't dye my hair, I didn't really care what color dye I got - I would just give it away anyway. So, even though I don't really know anyone in particular who would want to dye their hair black, it was the only color with the coupons. So, I got them :) Now I get something out of it even though I don't use the hair dye :)
The coupons inside the box are:
  • $1 off Any Cover Girl Product
  • $7 off Crest 3D Whitestrips Professional Effects
  • $1 off Any Olay Facial Moisturizer
  • $1 off Any Tampax Product
  • $1 off Any Secret Clinical Strength Deodorant
  • $10 off Any Braun Electric Shaver or Epilator
  • $2 off Any Prilosec OTC
  • $1 off Any Olay Body Wash or Body Lotion
  • $1 off Any Pantene Expressions or Restore Shampoo or Conditioner
  • $2 off Any Venus Embrace Razor
All of the coupons expire 10/31/12 so I have plenty of time to put them to good use :)

I'm still psyched at my awesome trip :)
