CVS and Acme Deals

I wanted to run out to CVS to pick up the deals I wasn't prepared for when I went earlier this week. Unfortunately, they were out of the toilet paper, the wipes, the Airwick Freshmatics and refills, so I wound up with only a few odds and ends and a bunch of rain checks. I'm a little worried about how the rain checks were written out. I think I am going to attach the ad, so that I can get the ECBs. The new rain check form doesn't have a place for the ECB amount or event code - this seemed a bit odd to me. I hope it doesn't mean that you can't rain check ECBs anymore!

1 - ruler
1 - 2pk children's toothbrush

Paid with $1, $.89 and $1.59 ECBs and $2.37 OOP. I didn't really plan to buy the toothbrushes when I started the journey, but my shopping assistant was insistent that she needed a new toothbrush and after carrying them around, she managed to open the package and I felt obligated to buy them. They weren't falling out or anything, but they were open and I know that if I found an open pack, I wouldn't buy them.

While I was out, I stopped at Acme to pick up Chicken Noodle Soup for my son, who was sick (he didn't think Progressive with Penne Pasta was the same). I grabbed a few other deals and picked up Moro Oranges that were on sale. Reading the description in the ad for the Moro Oranges had me intrigued.
