Feel free to discuss complaints, shopping trips, etc.......CVS related and off topic too! I'm hoping this will unclog the weekly threads a bit. Smilie

Really? Did I miss something?
First moving to chat thread as to not clog up weekly one.

I will be really glad if the ability to buy $4/20 off ebay goes away.
It is hurting those of us who coupon with out them.
If you can't find deals w/out using these coupons that are obtained through not direct from CVS sources than I'm sorry, but I think this move will be for the better!

Got hassled about my $4 off $20 coupons tonight. I was doing two transactions, using one on each. The cashier asked if I had two cards to which I replied yes. Then he chastised me twice about having multiple cards. Not really sure if this is something you can complain about since CVS hasn't really given a firm answer about legitimacy of using the $4/$20....
Cross-posting here. First off, CVS policy clearly states only one card per household. Second, you never stated what the employee said about the $4/20 Coupons so we cannot help you without knowing what happened.

In the future, don't advertise things to employees(multiple cards) that aren't allowed unless you want to ruin the relationships at your stores.

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.
Cross-Posting here.

Correlation doesn't necessarily equal causation. Sample for you:

Dihydrogen monoxide:

· is also known as hydroxl acid, and is the major component of acid rain.
· contributes to the "greenhouse effect."
· may cause severe burns.
· contributes to the erosion of our natural landscape.
· accelerates corrosion and rusting of many metals.
· may cause electrical failures and decreased effectiveness of automobile brakes.
· has been found in excised tumors of terminal cancer patients.

Dihydrogen monoxide is often used:

· as an industrial solvent and coolant.
· in nuclear power plants.
· in the production of styrofoam.
· as a fire retardant.
· in many forms of cruel animal research.
· in the distribution of pesticides.
· as an additive in certain "junk-foods" and other food products.

BTW, Dihydrogen Monoxide is actually Water. We can make things super scary, but it doesn't mean it actually is. Now I'll be the first to admit that Drinking Soda isn't healthy for you...just wanted to give some food for thought before we start running from the Bromide wagon. Oh, and that man you mentioned drank 8 Liters PER DAY!!! Matthew Ellis also died after drinking 7 Liters of Water, his salt levels were low and this caused his cells to swell causing him to die.

Manager rolled her eyes at me yesterday. I bought some chocolate milk on Saturday (sales price in ad was $3.99). I didn't notice till I got home that it rang up at $4.89. So, I brought my receipt back. They seemed to have a bit of trouble figuring out what to do (since the ad was no longer active) and then she said something about ringing it up as a missed coupon or something. But, before that, she said, "So, you're saying we owe you 90 cents." I could tell the roll of the eye was to say, "You get so much stuff from us for free and you're going to complain about 90 cents." I told the cashier, "She's giving me a hard time about getting my dollar back - but you see what I can buy with a dollar." (as I paid $1.45 for my entire bag.) I didn't appreciate the attitude...

They can fix that, they just did not want to be bothered.

Went to my one of the CVS's I frequent and bought a few items that produced ECBs and when the receipt printed the cashier wrote on the receipt next to each ECB producing item "got $7 ECB can't return" and "got $3 ECB can't return". I was in a rush because the store was closing so didn't ask her (long line behind me) I'm just wondering if this is new as it has never happened to me before. I do no plan on returning these items but I thought it was really strange. I coupon there about once a week and don't return much (maybe a handful of times because items were miss tagged) But I hope I am not on their watch list since I personally think I coupon responsibly and I don't clear their shelves.

Hm, that's a new one, I've never heard of that. I guess you'll have to be really careful when you buy stuff there, to make sure you paid the right price, got your ecb, etc.

I wonder what they do when you are buying one item towards an ecb deal that requires you buy multiples to get the ecb?

I'd ask for a manager, or maybe even call corporate and inquire about that practice. Nothing confrontational, but find out why the cashier is doing it, and what corp's stance will be (likely "manager discretion", would be my guess). I'm assuming they are having trouble with folks buying ECB stuff, then returning it Ranting

But...

Beauty items are "satisfaction guaranteed", no matter what.

What if something is defective? Or you get home and notice it has been tampered with? There are a whole host of reasons for a legitimate return.

I never return anything, so it isn't really a big deal to me personally...but I'll be damned if cashiers are gonna start writing all over my receipts...many times I need those for rebates Teehee

I know in our area, we have one lady who has over twenty cards, and goes from store to store getting the free after extra bucks items, and she ALWAYS returns them with 45 days. She did over $1000 in returns at 6 different stores. All of the FAEBS Black Friday items.

CVS itself should put a stop to this. Since transactions are tied to cards, then any card with an excessive history of returning ECB deals should just be canceled.

EXACTLY! That's why I always tend to believe these types of stories are bogus. If any store would not crack down on excessive abuse like that, well then the company deserves the losses.
