Thread Details

I think this would be a great outlet to post our concerns, rants, etc.....on our WAGS experiences due to low stock, new ECers, & S&Gers.

For what it's worth I do believe that low stock is more of an issue than S&Gers, but they and new ECers are definitely playing a huge role in the issues that we are all encountering. Frown

The past few weeks I have posted about a new mega shopper in my area......buying thousands of the RR products. First I heard that the person just moved to the area. I saw the guy on Thanksgiving. Today I find out
there are four people involved in the buying. The person lives in NJ and travels to NY , MI and to Chicago to buy the RR items. Said he works for a non-profit organization and this is his job. Also said they were shipping it all
to India.
Has anyone in NY or Chicago ever seen/hear of these people?

Have any of you mega shoppers encountered this??
That's really terrible.

Just heard from my favorite manager.....................a friend of his who was a manager in a Philadelphia store just got fired for doing orders for couponers after being told to stop........................................This sh!t is really starting to effect me, no more big orders (And by big I mean 40-100 of an item), under $500 in coupon redemption per day, now who the hell knows what will happen.

I don't want to have to drive to another area just to get 50 of an item!

I've only done a few orders and the largest I ever did was 40 Proglide and 40 Scope. Last week I talked to the store manager about upcoming Tums and he said he could do 40 but only if I'm not "large" ordering anything else. (Yeah, like 40 is a LARGE order. Stick Out Tongue) He said something about not wanting to get flagged by corporate.

I figured it was all BS, rumor-type of stuff but after reading what you guys are saying, it makes me think maybe there is something to it. Scratchchin

With this crowd? Say it ain't so. laugh out loud

My favorite SD implosion ever was one where someone (a noobie) came into the RA thread and blasted Asian shoppers.

Kyle was the Mod at the time. He's asian. Everyone who knew this was like EEK! "Uh oh" Ninja.

Tempers flared, heads rolled, points flew ... there was collateral damage everywhere. Ahhhh, the memories. laugh out loud laugh out loud

That is what I am concerned about now. There are other area stores that don't do any extra ordering. These people messed with two of my main shopping stores.
Waiting for my coupons so I can go there this afternoon.

If they are from NJ I think I know who they are. They were cut off from 4 stores around here for using fake listerine coupons when the listerine was free after RR they used 1000's of these coupons in the parlin store and the store MGR got into a ton of trouble for letting them do so much so the 3 surrounding stores also cut them off. They do not ship any where they sell in the stores they own.
Can you pm the store number to me??....maybe my manager should have a chat with that store manager.

So far only the RR items. The bought colgate, 2400 bottles of scope at one store, 2,000 plus
razors. Had coupons for all of it. They put money on GC's and had the employees ring it up.
Was the coupon loss from using too many and the stores not getting refunded.?
I'm wondering if they are the same ones down here in the Fort Lauderdale area. An EXA told me all stores in my district got an email stating "No more ordering". Also mentioned some kind of problem with the amount of P&G coupons being redeemed. Sunday I saw a couponer friend of mine who said he also heard of the "No more ordering email". He was telling me there is a couple (not sure if male/female) who are buying huge amounts. They give the cashier their coupons and a gift card and the cashier does it all. Then they pick up their stuff. He made it sound like they're not even there for all the ringing up. They bought 3,000 bottles of Scope. He said with the wording of the P&G coupons now this store got in trouble because of the 3,000 Scopes sold in one day. He knows of 2 stores that were doing this for them. Very similar to what you guys up north are hearing...

Stopped at two wags today. The BA said the men came and picked up the merchandise. They were told no more ordering, so probably won't see them again. They said they were heading for FL. ...Sure sounds like the same group of people.

Oh by no means was I trying to say people from India are bad.
I was only replying to wildcouponlady to say that I HIGHLY doubt that the purchase of 2000 razors & 2400 Scope are going to be actually shipped to India. I also was quoting our neighbor/friend because she has had run ins with the owners of convenience store because the coupons are always removed from newspapers and she thinks they are shady. I just avoid that particular convenience store. As for the other convenience store, the young lady that cashiered there for 2 years said all other grocery/soda etc...is delivered by vendors but the health/beauty/otc meds come from an outside source. I really hope I didn't offend anyone. I'm just saying that if a group of people are clearing out Walgreens warehouses it will hurt us all in the end. I think the highest amount that I've ordered from stores has been 125 and that was Nasal Ease & Rightguard BW. When the bogo gillette disposable coupon was released a few weeks ago I went to 8 Walgreens on Saturday night and ALL Gillette disposables (even the $10.99 disp.) bins were completely empty. I just have to be on my toes if I want to get a deal or use mq's in my area. As for the Scope I was lucky if any of the wags I visited had 9 on the shelves. Most had 2 on the shelves so I had to buy tp.

well if you've offended anyone, i'm going to take it a step further. the stores in my area cvs rite aid wags all state that asian customers are coming in buying tons of stuff including using credit cards to buy gift cards when they run promotions. my stores believes they are reselling in their stores. i posted awhile ago about some girls who bought every bottle of carmex when it was .99 after rr then i saw a group of girls at the post office shipping tons of boxes. i guessed they were the same girls but they were white.Stick Out Tongue
