There were not much that I wanted to get this week, but I did pick up $1 Purex detergent, as this is about the best price on detergent, if I cannot get it for free. I could not find the free Crystal Light single packs, which were mentioned on Simply CVS, and of course the CVS Green Bag Tag was not in stock either.

I do not have the Great Revlon Coupons that will land many of you free Revlon nailpolish this week, but I had gotten a $2 Revlon Target coupon instead, which I have used to get free beauty tools at Target several times.
I had an issue with the gum, as I first bought the Stride gum, and then I saw a sign advertising Dentyne gum for $0.99 with $0.99 back as well. I looked in the CVS ad, and it was not part of the Stride/Trident sale, so I picked one up. (Limit was 1). Of course the Extra Buck did not print, so I asked why it did not, and the cashier told me it was included in the sale. I looked at the ad again, and it definitely did not mention the Dentyne as a part of the sale, and I could not see any expiration date on the deal….so the cashier gave me back the $0.99 Extra Buck back, but he continued to use the code from the ad, instead of going over and getting it from the signage. 
Did anyone else see this Dentyne deal?
