Tried to do the Revlon deal at CVS.

$6.99 Lustrous, Moon Drops lipstick, or Double Twist Mascara, Get $5.00 ECB (Limit 6)

There was a $2.00 off the lipstick at Facebook which I think is no longer available, or wasn't earlier.
Someone said that coupon beeped unless you got the lipstick with the UPC code starting with 03997 or something like that. Someone else said be careful or you'll get a lipstick that doesn't count with the deal.
Well, I remembered the former, forgot the latter.
So I paid $7.99 for the lipstick, and no ECBs.

I wanted to do a return and try again, but the boy said it was too hard to do a refund when I used coupons, so he was just going to issue the ECB.
It was still $1.00 too much for the lipstick, but since he pushed thru my $4/$20 coupon without any fuss, I didn't want to argue about it.

$6.99 Double Twist Mascara x 2
$7.99 Lipstick
-1.00 Revlon 9/12 SS x 2
-2.00 Lipstick Facebook IP
-4.00/20.00 CVS IP
= $13.97

Used $12.99 ECBs
and $.98 + 1.54 tax = $2.52 oop
Rec'd $15.00 ECBs

Final Total $0.51 cost (Should have been +2.03 profit before tax)
