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

Today I wanted to pay with points at two different stores. My card was scanned during the transaction, but the redeem points thing never came up on the screen. The second store I asked "can I pay with points" and she said it doesn't look like you have enough because it's not prompting for that. I have 39k+. Am I missing something, or are they? I've redeemed points before with no problems. I was buying the artic fish oil $10. Any help is appreciated.
I was just coming to search this answer! Same thing happened to me tonight!
So I had to pay cash instead of using the 18k points. Frown
I pointed out my points to the cashier after the receipt printed (54+) and she then asked if I wanted her to call the mgr. I should've, but just left feeling defeated again..

this is what i get for buying 3 saturdate colgates to be nice to the BA and my logic was that although i only had 1 $1/1 mq, the $5/$30 would take care of the rest.

side note...wtf..they only got 10c per revlon but $1 per colgate
Holy cow.. That's horrible.. Frown

Same thing happened to me on Saturday - I wanted to use points for four transactions but the Redeem with Points only popped up one time. I had to pay w/cash and was not happy to waste my Rebate card like that.

39K+ points is certainly enough to redeem. They have to press total to enter the Payment screen, then one of their tender options (lower left button) is “Redeem Points”.

I have found no rhyme or reason as to why the “Redeem Points” screen will pop up on the PIN pad. For me, I’d say about 75% of the time I will see it. But if you don't see it, for whatever reason, the cashier can do it.
The cashiers need to be taught this. I asked her if there was some button she could push to make it pop up. She said no....

If anyone has a little girl like me, I am trying to take advantage of the $5/$20 by buying items that I can use for Easter baskets. I bought a cute Disney Princess plastic trashcan for $5.99 that I am going to use as the Easter basket. Also found heavyweight plastic Donald Duck, Grumpy, Mickey Mouse and Tinker Bell insulated cups $5.99 each or 2/$10. Sock Monkeys were clearanced to $1.74. Twinkle Toes girl's bedroom shoes were clearanced to $3.XX.

I am just trying to think outside the box this year since I am sure that she thinks the Easter Bunny brings the same things every year.

I called cs earlier today to see if there was something wrong with my acct. He said nothing wrong, cashier probably didn't know what they were doing and ask for a manager next time that happens. Hth

Hah! Even the Russel Stover candies are getting smaller. The Truffle Hearts were 1.25 oz. and now the Truffle Eggs are 1 oz.

Darn wags and the advil congestion relief deal. When coupons didn't go through the cashier price modifies off of the non sale price. Then she does a return to fix that and I lost my 5k points. Sheesh...go away points stuff! Didn't notice til today.....sigh.

Oh, I've read about this new Mountain Dew thing. It's characterized as an "breakfast drink" - alternative to coffee or tea, or Red Bull Big Grin

That's interesting that they've recruited Wags to promote it.

If you are a Lady Gaga fan, you know she has a song called "Teeth".
Would you care to guess one of the two songs that you can play on the Lady Gaga Singing Toothbrush? LMAO

My manager said the mountain dew cans will be a rr item in two weeks.....there are special displays. Was hoping there was a thread today for that week, but not yet.
I'm sure some of you know this already, some may not or not even care, but since I found this out, I quit drinking these beverages.

Mountain Dew. The oh so sweet is it yellow? is it green? nectar of the geek gods and fuel for gamers has flame retardant in it. Yup. Mountain Dew, along with 10 percent of sodas in the US, contains brominated vegetable oil (BVO), a flame retardant chemical banned in Europe and Japan. The flame retardant, BVO, is currently listed as an ingredient in various citrus soft drinks such as: Mountain Dew, Squirt, Fanta Orange, Sunkist Pineapple, Gatorade Thirst Quencher Orange, Powerade Strawberry Lemonade and Fresca Original Citrus. But why and what for? According to the Environmental Health News, BVO contains "bromine atoms which weigh down the citrus flavoring so it mixes with sugar water" instead of floating to the top. Basically, BVO gives soda more consistent flavoring. That sounds good! But BVO is also added to polystyrene foam cushions in furniture and plastics in electronics because BVO can slow down the chemical reactions that cause a fire. Yuck. Is that what we want to be drinking? So how the hell if BVO is banned in foods in Europe and Japan, does BVO still exist here? Well, back in 1977, the FDA set what they thought was a "safe" limit for BVO in sodas and soda companies have been allowed to use BVO ever since. Seriously! That's the only reason! Scientists believe that the data the FDA looked at in the 1970s is outdated (ya think?) and that BVO needs a closer look. The EHN says:
After a few extreme soda binges—not too far from what many gamers regularly consume—a few patients have needed medical attention for skin lesions, memory loss and nerve disorders, all symptoms of overexposure to bromine. Other studies suggest that BVO could be building up in human tissues, just like other brominated compounds such as flame retardants. In mouse studies, big doses caused reproductive and behavioral problems.
As if we needed more reason to learn that soda is terrible for us.

how are returns handled if i used a $5 off 20 coupon, coupons for the item, and RR's to pay? Is the 5 off 20 going to affect the amount i get refunded back?
