If an ad says spend $10 to receive $5 ECB, and the two items totals $9.98. Do they round it up so I can still receive my $5ECB. And am I allowed to use my spend $10 get $2 off still.

Hi! To answer your questions:
1) It all depends on the deal, some will print ECBs at like 98%, so require all, it's hard to tell which is which...
2) Yes, you are allowed to use $/$ or other coupons to pay less than $10 OOP, and still get the ECB. For instance if the items totaled $10, and you had a $2 off $10, you would only spend $8, but still get the $5 ECB as the pre-coupon price was $10.

Hope this helps, and thanks for reading!
