LMAO OMG, corporateclaw is so right!

I always think to myself "What does this look like to other people?" .........there I am, walking into a store with my bag and another empty bag, I walk up and down every aisle, stand in front of the XYZ product for an undefinite period of time, get my phone out and stand there FOREVER (probably getting deal details from mobile site or using my phone calculator), walk into the next aisle and do it all over again......... and sometimes I end up walking out of the store buying nothing! ............ Uhm, yeah, that seems pretty suspicious......

OMG, that's me, too! I don't use my phone, but if I had a smartphone i probably would. I hate pulling out a calculator, but honestly, who really cares?
I often end up going back and forth around the store, hitting aisles several times if needed. It looks like I don't know what I'm doing; I wonder if other people see it that way.

One time I was at a new location, the clerks thought I was a vendor checking on the stock displays.

I hesitate to take too many pictures but with all these programs --- scan QR for more info or this barcode for shopkick -- if you have a smartphone out, the staff don't think you aré a shoplifter --- they think worse...Blogger, ECer, comparison shopper, or sneaky vendor rep.

I told her I could certainly teach CVS a few things they don't ever think about that we as shoppers would love!

ugh, ?urlhasbeenblocked ? can't figure it out, you'll have to use a secret code

Sounds like cvs doesn't care as much about shoppers as they do about bloggers. Flying them to HQ, for panels? What happened to video chatting? A lot less costly, and psst, here's a tip, the bloggers are pretty good with a computer so they will know how to do it.

My receipts are now tracking 2 beauty club totals. One for 2012 and one for 2013.

Since Jan. 1st, I have purchased 8 Aveeno lotions at $4.99 each. The first two of these I bought on Jan 2nd. Today my tracking for 2013 is only $0.30!! Of course, I never pay anything except tax and often times I use ECBs to eat into the tax so my totals are always just a few cents. (Note I did not purchase anything for $0.30 so this figure makes no sense.)

I'm wondering if they have changed the Beauty Club to work just like the Quarterly Spending. i.e. it is only the actual amount you pay -- AFTER all coupons and ECBS.

Is anyone else experiencing this weirdness?

I'm with your mom, bmwchick. Let it go. In the grand scheme of things, this isn't something worth your anger. Evil cashiers will always be there. It may take a long time, but even the most coupon nazi's eventually come to realize that "those couponers" are not worth their time, either, especially when they have ACTUAL THIEVES to deal with.

From a former cashier perspective? She's just trying to do her job. It's nothing personal. wave
LMAO

I wonder what other customers think seeing me sitting on the floor in an aisle with coupons and papers out calculating something and writing things down while trying to keep my toddler DD from grabbing things? I call it my office (do not like to go to the pharmacy and sit there - I am a germophobe). The manager and AMs all know me very well and are very used to my office laugh out loud Heck, they know my kids by name and ask me and DH about them all the time. I have to admit my fave store has an awesome crew of people!

Don't worry about it, I'm pretty sure it's just a glitch in how they're displaying it on receipts right now. You actually have $30 tracking - is that more accurate? I have $0.41 listed on my receipt, but my online account shows $41, and I also know that $41 is exactly how much in beauty I've bought since Jan 1. I'd assume they should fix it soon (has anyone actually gotten a BC EB yet for 2013 tallies? Wonder if that prints properly yet), but I don't think they're only counting OOP or anything weird like that.

Wow, I have never seen that! Whatever it takes.

I only just discovered the pharmacy chairs, LOL. Still, I know the pharmacists are watching me Ninja (Shopping shouldn't be this hard. )You're right about the germs, tho, I will probably not go there now.

I used hubby's card at one store about 7:00 tonight and that tally only has 2012 beauty club totals. Then I used my card at another store about an hour later and it has both 2012 and 2013 totals (and, yes, my 2013 total is 27 cents, which makes no sense whatsoever). Very confusing!

One of my cards has a 2013 beauty club total of .06. I haven't bought anything at CVS in the last month that cost .06!

Yep, I came here to figure out if they changed something or anyone knows. Not sure if my $0.07 means much. I bought a TON of Eucerin today (noticed it at my store before I came here). We'll see in 2 days what shows up. I'm saving all my receipts (not anything different since I started Q'ing) and will call CS in a couple of days when I have time off if it doesn't resolve before then. I asked the "kids" in the store and of course, they know nothing!
