Total Retail: $125.30

I was a little bummed here because I also used another -$1 off one Secret Family Dollar coupon (since I bought 2) and a -$1 off one Venus Family Dollar coupon. The cashier scanned them and told me they worked, but they didn’t come off on the receipt. You’re supposed to be able to use a mfr coupon and a Family Dollar for each item. I wasn’t sure about the second FD Secret coupon, but I know I should’ve been able to use the FD Venus. I should’ve paid $5 plus tax. I didn’t notice until I walked out of the store and I didn’t want to go back inside for $2.

Never miss a coupon, deal or freebie again!
