    FYI this deal is dead- the tins are not working anymore to produce the ECB

  • Cheri

    I bought the regular tins today – no ECBs. Should I have gotten the soft ?

    • Christine R

      Cheri, I tried both last night and neither one produced the ECB’s.

    Was able to go last night and get 12 Nivea tins for .99 each. Total was $11.88 and got back a $36 ecb. Then purchased 12 packs of coke 4 for $10 and 3 boxes of Taskykakes at $2 each. Total was $36 for which I used my $36 ecb and got back a $10 ecb. So for 12 nivea tins, 12 packs of coke and 3 boxes of tastykakes, I spent $11.88 and got back $10 in ecb. It was a good night!!!
