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?
Frankly, I am not sure why you should have to explain the choice to anyone. As long as CVS offers a choice, either option is legit and should be treated as legit.

My response would be along the lines of "thank you for the suggestion, but this option works better for me" with no reason specified.

I asked a question over in the CVS FAQ thread about RCs & double dipping on ECBs. I didn't want to cross post, but I am not sure how frequently that thread gets looked at (and I haven't found anything via search). If you have time to answer I would appreciate it. Thanks!

Iagree There's no reason to justify the choices we make. If CVS offers both as options, then both are valid. Personally, I hate the "send to card" feature and won't use it...but that doesn't mean I'm going to try and stop others from using it if it fits their style.

If nothing else, tell them the voices won't let you use "send to card" until CVS reprograms all of their stores to play nothing but Billy Ray Cyrus and Marilyn Manson over the speakers.

Bet they leave you alone after that Rofl2

So I had emailed CVS CSR about no longer receiving emails for the Diabetes program, Beauty club, etc, and the CSR claimed to have fixed an error with my email addy.

Lo and behold, today the diabetes $4/$20 Q was emailed and I didn't receive it. I'm pretty sure that means my account is not fixed Frown

Has this happened to anyone? I understand that a lot of people stop receiving the $/$$ emails, but why am I not receiving Beauty Club and Diabetes program anymore? It's weird because I can usually still use the Qs beep-free, which makes me think they're still valid for my account but somehow just not getting emailed right...

I've never gotten the emails either. I tried talking to them once too and the CSR I talked to said it was random who gets them anyway. Confused I don't think I believe that.

These are supposed to be "chat" threads, instead of official store threads, but if someone can link the chat thread into some of the weekly threads then it should be moved with the other important links in future weeks?

I'd link it, but I'd probaby screw up the wiki. Mad I just did my first successful copy and paste into a new thread a week or so ago, but I was playing with a wiki that was empty. Roll Eyes (Sarcastic)

So, for anyone that can make a "pretty link" and stick it in the weekly thread under important links, feel free. nod

If you have a raincheck for an item that is on sale BOGO this week, will the second item come off free after the first items is price modded for the raincheck?

Sorry, but I'm pretty sure it won't.

I've used RCs and double dipped on the "same" offer with no problem.

One in particular was when there was the spend $30 and get $10 ECB when you purchased $30 of P&G items. I used a RC for the Proglide razor. The price for the razor was modified and I got the $5.00 ECB manually printed and the $10 ECB too.

This week I used the RC on the Excedrin for $6.99 (100 ct) for the spend $20 and get $10 ECB. With a $5.00 CRT off 2, three $1.50 MFQs, and a $/$$, it was actually a MM.

If unsure about using your RC, use it on a Saturday night. Chances are the cashiers won't know the deals for the following week. Big Grin

I was buying stuff with RC today and the very nice manager came over and asked the cashier what store the RCs were from and I thought, uh oh, here comes a problem, cause they weren't from that store. turns out that if the RC is from another store, he doesn't get the sale. I never knew that...

And a reminder that it's good to get RCs on everything ... I was using a RC from February bc I needed filler to use ECBs, and didn't realize that the item also was giving ECBs back this week, so it was a great mm. It was crest pro health, which was 3.50 and get 3.50 ECB back ... I bought two, used $1 coupons and got back 9.50. (3.50 twice and 1.25 twice).

I think what was meant by saying it wouldn't work is that by manually entering the price of the item with the raincheck, the register wouldn't also automatically ring up with the BOGO sale that is going on this week.. if that makes sense. Different situation than qualifying for an ECB deal, etc.! That was my understanding, at least.

Funny you say that.. apparently the stores in my area have been having a big problem with people getting ahold of raincheck forms and forging them. Didn't even know this was an issue, but one of the cashiers was telling me about it the other day. I guess they've been writing in that it's from a different store than they are using it at thinking the cashiers won't know who works at the other stores - however, in my area at least, a lot of the cashiers work at more than one of the CVS location and know if there isn't a Donna Smith at such-at-such CVS. Sucks though, I'm hoping I don't run into problems redeeming my VALID rainchecks because of these idiots!

Wow, then u gotta fake the store number and the event code, etc. Seems like lots of work, but then I find that lawless folk generally spend way more time circumventing stuff than it would take to just do the deals right...
