So now we stand here at the end of August scratching our heads as tallies get erased, weekly deals arbitrarily becoming monthly deals, and like a meth addict looking for one more bump, faithfully click into our emails daily to see if CVS is going to dish out one last hit, maybe that elusive unicorn, I mean $/$$ Q might come back alive.
I scouted out the Aquafresh today at my store, but the only Aquafresh kids stuff I could find was all marked Kids, not Training - if you look on Aquafresh's web site, the Kids stuff is for kids ages 2-3+, while the Training stuff is for kids ages 3-24 months.
My CVS only had a 2+ Kids toothpaste ($2.67) and 3+ Kids toothbrush ($2.59) - both were BOGO50% (although I don't think they count for the gas card deal; isn't that just Oral-B this week? ), but the coupon is supposed to be for the Training line, which my CVS didn't seem to carry.
Anyway, just a head's up on that before others get too excited about this deal!
I think there are "training" toothpastes in the baby aisle.
So with all this talk of CRT's being scanned as $/$$, what are the ramifications? E.g. Will I be able to use multilple $2 Nature Made CRT's if my total is high enough?
Oh yeah, don't worry, in my experience the Nature Made CRTs don't require a minimum purchase amount - I've never had one of those beep on me regardless of how low my total is or what other coupons I use. It's only certain CRTs that do that (like the Starburst BOGO CRT this week)!

I can't believe I missed that information about the Starburst CRT. I cringe at even asking this but how was that discovered? I'm just curious. I have a stack of five in my kitchen right now that I would LOVE to use. But ya'll know there's only so much Starburst a single girl can eat before she needs a crane and a Jerry Springer intervention to get out of her apartment. And my dog doesn't really like Starbursts either. I guess I could try the Starburst CRT at the self checkout and play stupid if it doesn't work. My CVS is super coupon friendly and I am always holding up the SCO for some reason. They wouldn't even blink. BTW, repped and thank you!

Hmm? For the Starburst CRT in particular, zguru reported in the weekly thread that it was conflicting with $/$$'s - which aligns well with the fact that earlier in the week, most folks reported the CRT autodeducting $4.29, but a few reported it beeping (most likely it beeped because these people were using other $/$$'s in their transaction).
If you're asking how it was discovered in general that some CRTs require a minimum purchase amount - well, just astute observations over many transactions by many SDers, I'd say. Like zguru did this week, many of us have experimented with varying combinations of coupons and then observed what beeps and what doesn't - and it seems to be a pattern that some daily CRTs require a minimum purchase amount (though it's impossible to tell what that minimum is for each of these CRTs, other than through trial and error - and reading what other SDers have reported, of course!).
I'm not sure what you're particularly worried about with the Starburst BOGO CRTs though? I certainly didn't mean to make anyone panic over these CRTs!
Anyway, unless you're using another $/$$ in your transaction, I think they should all go through fine and autodeduct $4.29 each if you're buying 2 bags of Starburst per CRT - the coupon is coded as a $4.29 off $$ Starburst, but the $$ amount seems to be less than (or equal to) the actual cost of 2 Starbursts, so there shouldn't be a problem if you're not using another $/$$. If you are (e.g., if you have a $4/$20 or $10/$50 or whatever that you also want to use in that transaction), just be aware that your Starburst CRTs might beep if your subtotal is barely above the $$ required for the other $/$$, in which case the cashier might enter the sale price of the Starburst instead of getting it to autodeduct $4.29. Does that make any sense at all? If I'm being confusing, feel free to PM, and I'll try to clarify!
