Here are the details from my Kroger trip tonight. My plan was to get 3 Ivory bodywashes, not the packs of the bar soap (the coupon can be used on either), but they were out of the bodywashes, which I got a raincheck for. I'll explain that later on in the transaction details.
This was all done in one transaction. I got:
3 Crest toothpastes
3 3-bar packs of Ivory soap
3 bottles of SoftSoap hand soap
3 - $.75/1 Crest tootpaste (doubled up to $1.00)
3 - $.50/1 Ivory bar soap or bodywash (doubled up to $1.00)
3 - $1/1 SoftSoap printable coupon - no size restriction (no longer available)
Total before sales and coupons - $15.77
Total after sales and coupons - $.47
At the end, when I checked out, a $2.00 OYNO catalina printed out. It was a result of buying the Crest products. A 'thank you from Crest' was what the catalina said. I'm not sure how many you have to buy to trigger the catalina to print out. I don't know if you can get it with getting 1 or 2 crests, but I got 3 tonight and the catalina printed out. Now, this particular catalina can be used on ANYTHING (unless prohibited). It's not just a coupon for Crest. OYNO are my favorite kind of catalinas to get. :)
