Know what you mean. I'm in Hilton Head on vacation. It's killing me that I can't shop. DH doesn't want extra stuff to take home.

I did get a chance to stop in and scan my cards at the red machine. Noticed that the store had Puffs with the $1 Qs. Left without buying any. Mad

OAN, got a text from a cashier that the red machine now has a touch screen. You can now type in your phone number and zip code and get coupons.

hello,i had a queston regarding specifiacly the $4/$12 cosmetic coupons. when i think "cosmetics" i think of strictly makeup and thats it. im i correct in thinking this way? lotions, face scrubs/ cleansers are concidered health and beauty but none of those fall under cosmetics right?

Yes that is how I interpret it

Now for a Florida area expert. I am in fla now and been shopping at CVS. Unlike Pa it is not a tax after coupon area. I have been giving ECBs first after calculating my totals including tax to avoid all the oop for tax but keep going negative. So something else is reducing taxable amount. Was it XDD? that would explain some of the transactions but something else is also reducing taxable amount. Or are some items non-taxable even tho they have a T after their price. I see that snacks are non-taxable but toothpaste, cosmetics, vitamins and shaving appear to be taxable.

Anyone care to enlighten me as I hate to be inefficient just because I am on vacationBig Grin

Every CVS coupon (not CVS MFR) will reduce tax. Yes, XDD does too.

Vitamins and other OTC items are actually not taxable in FL, despite how they may show up on the receipt. I don't really know why they put those letters sometimes (B, N, T, etc.), since they don't seem to really indicate what one would assume they do...

....and some (most?) snacks (ready-to-eat, grab&go types) are taxable ;-)

In other words, fla CVS shopping and the tax involved is kinda like shopping at Wags--you just never know so be prepared to think quickly on your feet but try and eat into the tax as best you can and call it a day. And to think I thought it would be easy

Not at all, I CVSed in FL for over a year and was able to calculate my tax correctly more than 99% of the time. Smilie

You'd just need to familiarize yourself with state law on what's taxable and what isn't. I use this document if I'm uncertain: http://dor.myflorida.com/dor/form...dr46nt.pdf

There are some very specific things, like ice cream a pint or smaller is taxable, but the same item sold in a carton larger than that size is not taxable. Beverages are taxable or non-taxable depending on how they're labeled (as "beverages" or "juice" for example)...that sort of thing.

If you're only in FL very briefly, it may make more sense to just keep in mind some very general basics - like OTC is not taxed, food that isn't candy is not taxed, beverages that are real fruit/vegetable/milk are not taxed - and adjust at the register if something is slightly off.

There are very infrequent occasions where CVS seems to be the one coding something wrong in their system though. I once had 2 different flavors of V8 ring up differently when it came to tax. The fruit/veggie juice content was identical between the 2 flavors, but one was taxable and the other was not. I never figured out why, but I chalked it up to CVS's mistake...

If you are planning to get some diapers, do it ASAP: P&G is reducing amount in the package by 5%. Again. Frown

“The performance of every Pampers and Luvs diaper is being improved with a wetness indicator to help Mom and Dad know when it’s time to change,” P&G CEO A.G. Lafley explained, at an investors conference last week. To help pay for the research and development that went into the improvements, plus the higher cost of manufacturing them, “we need to take a price increase,” P&G spokeswoman Lauren Thaman told the Wall Street Journal. “We are doing that by downsizing.”
The new “downsized” packages are due to start shipping next Monday, September 16th, and will show up on store shelves shortly thereafter. The good news is that any time a product package changes, many stores put the old packages on clearance. All the better to clear out the larger ones, in order not to call attention to the fact that the newer ones are smaller.

Thanks for the heads up! I highly doubt this will enable mom and dad to use fewer diapers! In fact, it will likely increase the frequency of diaper changes, don't you think?

The improvement of the product may not always benefit the consumer, while not hurting physically, here is a prime example:

I do not mean to imply a child has to use each and every diaper to the full capacity, but yes, parents and caregivers psychologically may be prompted to use more diapers then necessary. Here we have a double whammy: more cost per diaper AND prompt for more changes. Mad

BTW, wetness indicator is not a new idea, years ago I remember it was a 2 stripes on the bottom of each diaper, turned blue when it wet. Was it Huggies?

Pampers already has a wetness indicator on their smaller sizes. Who needs it on the bigger ones? I, for one, do not see how I can benefit from it.

$20 http://www.cvs.com/bizcontent/gen...policy.pdf

CVS/pharmacy accepts multiple Dollar off Transaction coupons (e.g. $3 off $15) in one transaction if they apply
o Ex. Customer may use two 3 off $15 coupons if they are purchasing over $30.00
