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

Not much going on in here!

Went to CVS picked up a couple lipsticks and moved on to Wags. Picked up some candy corn, although I won't eat it since it's from Mexico, but thought it'd be cute in a clear vase for the table. Smilie

Just the generics at the red machine. Funny, you can tell they're going to be bad when there's a stack of the papers by the machine. Frown

I got a $10/50 CRT last week for the first time ever!! (no, it's not a new card, I've had it since the dawn of extracare program - and they just don't like me). So now I have to use it...

I do agree with everyone that CVS is the most consistent even though prices in general a little higher. I definitely don't want to be willingly eating anything from China (no apple juice, no this, no that...) but I think the few times that we go out to the restaurants - I know that we are... and I just have to deal with it. I have heard some stories from within so that's enough for me to read all labels. I even heard a story about the tea that's made there.

I also have a $10 Zrytec CRT that I should use.

Why does CVS hate me so?! I have been shopping since I was a kid cause it really was our neighborhood drug store. Anyhow - maybe it's cause I've had my card for so long... but I have never gotten a regular email from CVS - only the ones from CVS photo.
hug same here. I've checked my account over and over to make sure I'm signed up for emails. I've even created new email addresses and changed my email address on my account to see if that would help. my mom gets emails all the time. and coupons in the mail too. I get nothing. the only coupons I can ever use are the ones that people post somewhere.

**edit** I somehow missed your last post about the 10/50 before sending this one. maybe theres hope for me yet. Wink

That is a cute idea! Like one of those pictures in a magazine. You must not have kids though! LMAO If I put out a vase with "off limit" candy corn, it would not last 10 minutes in my house.

BTW, thanks for starting this thread. hug

snip...We have the same conversation EVERY SINGLE time.

He says: Your total is _____. (insert large price)
I say: EEK! That doesn't sound right, did you hit the total button? (post-coupon tax state)
->He hits total button
He says: Oh. You owe 7 cents.

Thanks Milton!
Crylol That sounds like the exact same conversation I have with a certain cashier at my store except with a few changes to the conversation:

He says: Your total is _____. (insert large price)
I say: EEK! That doesn't sound right, did you hit the total button? (post-coupon tax state)
He says: Uh, yeah.
I say: Are you sure?
He says: Uh, yeah.
I say: Can you please try it again?
->He hits total button
He says: Oh. You owe 7 cents.

Lately I've had cvs managers tell me I should use "send to card" for coupons. I don't want to do this for so many reasons, one of which is that I can often use printed copies repeatedly. I haven't been able to come up with a good way to (politely) rebuff this suggestion. Anyone else encounter this? What's a good way to get them to understand that send to card isn't the best option for everyone?

I've never encountered it but I'd just tell them you only have internet access at the library and don't get there often. Wink Not everyone has 24/7 access to a computer (although I can't imagine not having it).

hey Stitch-you were asking about some JF Qs found in a norcal MDA book.
I have a few extra books
you think maybe we can do a chain-I mail several to one person, & they mail some of those to another. I don't really need anything in trade but it would help on the postage.
Anyone else interested, these are $5/2 JF Qs exp 12-31-11

I had a couple of 4/20s that came up as already used.
both times I asked the clerk for the pre-tax total and they said "let's just see if it scans"
said I needed more stuff and I added more stuff but then said "used on (same day I was using it)"
so does an attempt to use one put it in the system, like when RA UP rewards were new?
or
if they were already used but I'm under $20, just the "under $20" message will show up?

The 1st one is now junk, & the 2nd one it looked like he overrode but it didn't show up on my receipt Sadwalk
I never get red box Qs & nice SDer sent me these

Yep, one scan is enough to mark a 13 digit q q as "used" in the CVS system, even if the q is declined. Always make sure you have $20 before you get to the register!

I know this has been answered in one of the weekly threads (as I have read it before) but I can't find it and can't remember. The B6G1 free diaper program - how long does it take the register that I bought 6? Is it like the Beauty program? 2-3 days or longer than that? TIA.

2-3 days is a good guess but no one can give you an exact answer because the totals were off for so long.

As a couple of other posters on other CVS threads mentioned, CVS finally fixed the diaper totals on their receipts.

For weeks my receipt total had 0/6 even though I knew I should need 2 towards the next freebie. My receipt balance changed this week to 10/2 which is correct -- without me buying any new diapers or calling customer service.

It is automatic ---flash your cvs card, buy a qualifying diaper (not all package sizes are eligible) and the total starts --- like any other ECB deal.
