Updated CVS trip

You can read all about my first CVS trip here. Below is my updated transaction. I returned the Revlon polishes because my CVS refused to take the coupons I had (which is OK since there are buy one get one free items I can use them towards in next week's flier). I also tried to return the ECBs, but my cashier wouldn't take them. She said no one else ever gives them back and that she wouldn't take them from me. She said that the ECBs are still good, once they are issued CVS doesn't void them when you make returns. It's nice to know, and if it happens here or there I guess it's OK, but it makes me feel like these ECBs are stolen money. I'm all for using coupons and getting deals, but keeping ECBs on items I returned doesn't seem ethical.
Anyway, here's the scoop:

3 Right Guard deodorants $2.99 each
2 Soft & Dri deodorants $2.99
Act Rinse $4.49
Herbal Essence Shampoo $2.50
Herbal Essence Conditioner $2.50
L'Oreal Genesis towelettes $5.99
Excedrin $1.99

Total $ 32.42
used $1.00 off Right guard (had 3 so $3.00 off)
used $ .75 off Soft & Dri (had 2 so $1.50 off)
used $1.00 off Act rinse
used $2.00 off Herbal Essence coup (had 2 so $ 4.00 off)
used $1.00 off L'Oreal Genesis
used $2.00 off Excedrin
$12.50 in coupons.

After ECBs my total OOP was $2.24 for about $50.00 worth of items. I got back $28.99 in ECBs, $2.00 for Act, $5.99 for L'Oreal, $10.00 for deodorant, ($9.00 for Revlon polish that was returned) & $2.00 for Herbal Essence.
