notes:too bad i forgot the oral care deal 7/27 - 9/27 was ending earlier this week and didn't make these purchases beforehand!

the herbal essences coupon beeped on these hydralicious products, and the register said the product was not sold (but the cashier entered it manually). if you have this coupon, it expires today (9/30)!

i almost didn't buy the similasan because i couldn't find any dry eye relief and the computer eye drops i found were .33 oz, not .5 oz! but i took a small chance since they were ringing up at the $6.99 sale price, and the +up reward did print. looking at the receipt, the description actually says .5 even though it's .33!

i probably wouldn't have bought the doctor's nightguard if i realized that a) the oral care deal was over and b) it was taxed. but i do need to get from 656 to 1000 points by the end of the year to keep my 20% discount, so it may have been worth it anyway.

the john frieda is a great deal, and even better with a 20% discount!

update: as of 9/30, +ups are no longer printing for the john frieda deal.

i have the wellness gold+ discount - after earning 1000 points wellness+ cardholders receive 20% off. customer will receive the lower of the discount price or sale price. read more here
