I got some great deals this week at Rainbow even though only 5 coupons doubled! (Much better than last week when 10 doubled, but I could only find 3 to double.)

I had a check for the formula from Gerber that actually ended up being more than what I owed. I had an overage of $1.42, but of course they don't give change back. Had I planned ahead better, I would have bought a Rainbow Foods gift card for $5 and used it next week.
I haven't had my favorite cashier for quite a while now. He just graduated from high school, so I'm slightly worried he's done working at Rainbow (though, congrats to him!). But I think I found a new one that I like (and I don't think she'll leave!) I only had 5 coupons to double on each transaction, but she still grabbed & scanned the higher values coupons first. But, she did forget to take off 5 cents for bags on 2 of the transactions (but put them on the last one, when I had over paid anyway). In her defense, I forgot to tell her too.
