Ok first to start out, on Sunday 7/24, I did the Spend $20 on Platex or Schick products Get $10 in Extra Care Bucks back..Now you are fixing to see some of my couponing tips and tricks in action, I had a rain check on the Schick Hydro Razors for BOGO (held out for a good time to use it, also my rain check was for 10, so they redid me a rain check for 6 because they only had 4 of them!), I found 1 CVS store (UGH) that had 4 of the Schick Hydro 5 razors left, so this was my transaction:
4 Schick Hydro 5 razors (on sale for $7.99 each): Used Rain Check for BOGO and 4 $4/1 coupons (exp. 7/24 which is why I had to use them yesterday)
