Do you have a savings trip you want to share with me and the KOAB readers? I’d love for you to email me a picture and the details of your transaction(s).


  1. I’ve noticed that the B1G1 coupons don’t always match the purchase price at CVS. I wonder if the computer uses the regular price?

    • Rivka,
      It depends on what cashier you get. If it’s B1G1 they are supposed to override the price and put in what their current price is. Some of them do this, and some just let it ring through for the full price.
