Safeway run - cheap ice cream!

I stopped into Randalls on my way home to get some cheap Starbucks ice cream. I had two shortcuts loadables for $2/2 so thought I might be able to get a good deal. While there, I noticed the Bright Green Bleach was on clearance 50% off and all Bright Green cleaners are on sale for buy 2 get 1 free, so I threw those in. Here is how my transaction played out:

1 Gallon organic milk $4.99 (YIKES!)
1 Natures own Bread $1.69
1 Lipton tea bags $1.05 - 2 $1 shortcuts -.60 insert 3-28 RP = -$1.55
2 Starbucks pints $2.79 each - 2 $2/2 shortcuts - 2 .75 IP = .08 (only 3 flavors are $2.79, the rest are $3.50 each)
1 Nivea bodywash $3.99 - $2 ecoupon - $2 IP = -.01
2.45lbs Rancher's Reserve meat $10.05 - $2/10 ecoupon - $3.02 30% reduced sticker = $5.03
3 Bright Green bleaches $1.89 each - $1.89 (b2g1 free sale) - 3 .95 50% stickers - $1 ecoupon - $1 IP = -$1.07*
Tax: .24
Cost oop: $9.30
*my total should have been $9.40, but cashier accidently gave me only .90 discount on one of the Bright Green and so he said he was going to add the .05 as separate coupon. When he did this, it tripled it and gave me an additional .10 off(he was the store director, lol)

Oah my what a mess...i went to Randalls tonight and the $10 CAT that is supposed to print after $25purchase was a nightmare... my first transaction was over the amount but the CAT didnt print...I went to the service desk and the guy got so frustrated with me that he just gave me the $10...so again i had another transaction and sure enough even with all the coupons i used, it was over the $25 dollar amount and again the CAT didnt print...urgh...He was so rude and told me that i "must not have gotten everything on the item list"...i had the list with me and WOW...i did buy eveything that was on the P&G participating item list so he got frustrated again and just gave me the $10 back...i will not go back and try this again, i will just save my $10 CAT for a future purchase. This was at the Clear Lake Randalls so BEWARE...the CAT isnt printing there!

I do not understand the math on the ice cream deal. How were you able to use 2 $2 coupons?

Anon, at Safeway stores, it appears ALL Loadables come off when the minimum required purchase is made. In this case, I had two loadables for $2 off when I purchased two. Both these came off with my single purchase of 2 simply by swiping my card at the register.
