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

5 stores...got my first "we can only sell you one more" of the day. up $170 rr and passenger side already full of coke 12 pks, mandarin oranges, brainstrong, and simply slim. gonna hit one more store and just in time for my next ultra secret stop (at 10am). too easy. Big Grin
Nearly every store i went to gave me some sort of hard time about the deal. Ranging from "is that right? Can't be. That's too good to be true" to "normally it's limit one per day, but I'll let you buy two just this once" to "I hope the manager doesn't see this or I'll get in trouble" to "you better do it while you can because they're going to shut this deal down fast"...unless I had a guy cashier, then not a peep!

Christmas was 50% off at every store I went to...boo...I'm ready for 75!

Plenty of stock on Brainstrong and coupon books.

I went to a store down the street, at 8:10-8:15. Cashier remarked that I was the first one there. laugh out loud. She also said ever since the points, there are rarely any coupon ladies that come Sunday morning now. Then again, its right across the street from CVS and Rite Aid, so maybe they were shopping there first? Sucks I don't have the peelies, yet. I'm hoping they are still there tomorrow. Pray

I had one of those people today as well. Begrudgingly gave me one Fitsmart out of the locked case and made a special point to tell me very smarmily that I could only have one of the several she had in there. I don't know why some of these guys have to make it adversarial like that. I also don't know why I let it get to me today, it's not like this is the only time I've been treated rudely by Wag staff. This person was just so needlessly snotty, it really rubbed me the wrong way.

I'll be sure to make a trip back and wave my $X00 of RRs in her face Evillaugh

Smooth sailing today otherwise, I hope everyone got lots of deals today.

I hate when they say "I hate coupons" as it makes me feel bad about using them and gets my spirits down in spite of the great deals I am getting. I mean I still will use them, but sure makes an unpleasant shopping trip for sure.

The cashier could have avoided a total void by just voiding the RR's and rescanning the coupon that kicked out, and then using your darker RR to scan instead of manually entering them. Yes I know she said to you that she couldn't scan them again or use different RRs from the same product to scan instead because they had different numbers, but you could say well you voided them out now so you can scan/use them again now. Or like you are saying try to show them that the numbers on the same product RR's are the same. I really don't know why any managers don't know this by now, as the RR progrom as been going on for years. I know you just can't tell some cashiers/managers no matter what. Just a way to save some voids, time saved, accounting saved etc... These days I am having to have to many voids when points don't work and so forth, so anything to save a void is good for me.
I know! I tried to tell her that but she put the coupons in the box. At one point, she said.."You should work for Walgreen's"....
When she called for the other girl and I tried to explain to her what happened, she cut me off and said (about putting in the RR manually) "No I didn't". Ok, well you punched in the numbers..... She was just rude, and I don't want to complain about her cause I want to go their again. She's always a PIA.

Big Grin Make sure you are getting a bunch of great stuff in a big order which you get down to .05 or less after RR's.

home now. hit 9 walgreens and walmart. ended up w/ 34 x $10 rr w/ a dozen or so peelies left to use for my order of 10. i've converted most of them to brainstrong (i health) rr's using the aforementioned coke trx. took me over a half an hour to unload my 12 packs; too tired to count. Big Grin

Only 34? You must be slipping. Here's 54 Brainstrong and 54 FitSmart, no screwing around with flipping today just used points.

Dropped by the 24 hour store to grab some cooking oil and some snacks, saw at least 10-15 Brainstrong left. I ended up doing a transaction of two, and a cashier mentioned there was probably more in the back. I'm guessing the manager pre-ordered a bunch. I know ever since points started, not a lot of people are couponing at Wags in my area, but jeez, I'm really surprised there are so many left (this was around 2 in the afternoon). Now I wished I grabbed more of the Vit books. Gonna go out tomorrow to try and grab a few more. Should've asked if they pre-ordered more Fit Smart and if in the back, as there were none in the display.

I remember Nasal Ease was gone by like 10am on Sunday, and wasn't that only a 4 MM too?

Did I tell ya I love those points? Prior to points, I had to compete against several other couponers. But after BF, and now today, I’m convinced they all quit and ran off to CVS. Every Wags I hit had plenty of stock and some FS still had the peelies on them. Still have a few peelies and I’ll have no trouble getting FS tomorrow. Then I’m going to convert the FS RR in BS RR w/energy drink RR.

None of the cashiers gave me any trouble, but then again, I only do one transaction per store per shift. The only problem is there is this one Wags where the cashier is pretty nice, but she is dumb as they get. Every time I use a coupon, she has to read it like she was studying for a test (while I’m thinking to myself, “Just scan the darn thing!). I was worried she would have a problem with the peelie because it said “performance supplement” and not diet supplement (that’s the type of thing she always zeroes in on). But it was a lucky day, as that was one the Wags that still had peelies! So I let her take it off the package so she had no excuse. For a moment there, Ms. Einstein almost ripped it when trying to get it off! But all was good.
Today was better than BF.

I did good today and was able to get out 1st thing. So I think the cashiers didn't really know about the deals yet (early). They are also usually nice at that store, anyway. I did several trx and left a lot of product, but also mentioned that I left some on the shelf, since I felt self-conscious.

Went out later on other errands and just checked a different store to see what stock was like. They were very low on everything, so I decided to get one more of each item. The girl at the register was just explaining to the other cashier about the previous lady who 'got that $28 item for free' because of the $10 coupon. The cashier told me nicely how that was such a good deal, getting it for free. I thought to myself, no it's free plus 10, LOL!and I told her she should grab the last one on the shelf if she was interested. Then she commented how the last lady had gotten several. So that made me look good, only getting one Wink I noticed the other lady cleared out the brainstrong, too. I got mine, left several, walked past the aisle a minute later and Poof, empty. Guess I got mine just in time.

Whew, now to do some surveys.

I could've done more than I did, but I am concerned about being able to spend them. I can't count on the GC angle anymore and I'd rather keep the value as points than play the endless flipping/rolling game or be forced to spend them on stuff I don't really need (or stuff that I already have multi-years supply of Big Grin)

Got my first WAG's Rewards card just over a week ago and had a decent day. Checked stock online and already half of the stores showed OOS on the FitSmart by mid-day....hit up all the stores that showed stock and found it at 5/6 stores successfully. Found a nice cardboard displayer on a sidecap at one store with peelies on all 4 varieties (2 boxers per). I am guessing this is where the peelies originated from and then they tore down the displayers and threw the boxes into basic at most of the other stores.

Brainstrong and the other FARR item seems like pretty good stock elsewhere so got a little time to flip. I am betting by the end of today 90% of stores around here will be out of FitSmart though.

Now what is the end game with this large stack of RR's? Only next weeks ad is up so far, hopefully something good in 2 weeks? I am just hoping for a decent points offer that won't lose half the value...at least 75% or above would be sweet. Still sitting at zero points lifetime so wanna get some points at some point ;p
