i hope the colgate total advanced clean clears for the scr. i was looking at this week's ad when i picked it up, which just says "total advanced 4 oz" but the online scr list says "Total Advanced Whitening Toothpaste 4 oz." at least i bought it early enough in the week that i should have time to exchange it if it doesn't clear.

i should qualify for $5 on scr #97 with the 2 zyrtec purchases i made today. but i'm planning to pick up a 3rd before the week is over so that i can qualify for the $25 wyb $50 instead.

there is also the zyrtec rewards program - $10 rite aid certificate wyb $50 zyrtec. but they have a disclaimer that states "$50 purchase requirement is determined before sales tax, is calculated less any coupon discounts." so i shouldn't qualify for that, but we will see...

update 8/25: i got credit for everything... colgate total advanced *clean*, the zyrtec d, and tylenol (cleared for both the tylenol rebate and the johnson & johnson rebate.) the full $18.99 for each zyrtec also counted towards the zyrtec rewards as i suspected. :)

now if i just buy one more zyrtec ($18.99 - $5 in-ad coupon - $4 man coupon = $9.99 oop) i should receive an additional $20 on the j&j rebate and $10 from zyrtec rewards!
