I clipped some of the coupons out of the pharmacy booklet for the Theraflu and Alka Seltzer cold medicines.
With my manufacturers coupons, it made the Theraflu 39 cents, and the Alka Seltzer free. I bought around ten boxes. When I went to check out, I was told that they had to do them as separate transactions because of the laws governing the sale of cold medicines.
Maybe I'm a little naive, but I thought all the cold medicines that were used in the manufacturing of meth were taken off the market, or at least sold behind the counter. Turns out they weren't. So if you have a lot of coupons, and plan on buying a few of these meds, please be aware of this. I have a large family, plus I donate to my extended family. My Publix was very accommodating, but it made me extremely nervous to think that what I was purchasing could have been mistaken for purchasing them for the wrong reasons.....
I just thought I would let my fellow couponers know. Some of us don't think about these things.
