I just realized that I messed up by buying two of the razors when there was a limit of one…. even though they were mens/womens. Therefore, I didn’t get back as many Extra Care Bucks…. bummer! I did the second transaction at CVS so that I could use the other $4 off of $20 that I had.. essentially getting the starburst for free.. but really I shouldn’t have bought the second razor and been better off.”

Wow, Vanna! What a great trip! Thanks for being an inspiration to us all.
