Thread Details

Mike started a thread like this for Wags and I figure that we need one for CVS, too, since so many CVS store coupons come up yellow or red for no reason. The point of this thread is not to bash CVS. It's to 1) give people a heads up about what store coupons might not be working and 2) maybe somebody from CVS will read this and realize that they have a problem with their registers that they need to fix. I'll get us started.

1. The $2/$6 mouthwash store coupon came up yellow on the purchase of two 1L Scope.

2. The $2/$8 pain med store coupon came up red on a $12 purchase of Advil.

By 'store coupons' you mean the CRT's? And or all others, I guess? (email, insert, and booklets, etc.)

No, just CVS store coupons that should work but don't. The CVS store coupons can be from the big red machine, emails, phone app, and so on. I'd like to document that there is a problem with how the store coupons work. Maybe if we have pages and pages of problems from multiple people CVS will do something to correct it. SD is a public forum. Couponers read the threads but so do the companies. It's possible that we can get some action. Of course, if nobody posts then CVS will say look, it's not really a problem. It's up to us if we want things to work better.

My app Q's for $1/2 Coke and $1/1 Silk shave cream didn't come off, came up red. I bought 2 2L Coke Zero and raspberry Silk shave cream.

ETA: Week of 7/3 my Sally Hansen $1/1 app Q came up red; I bought SH Miracle Gel in an orange sparkly color.

Sorry, Marcia. Yes all CVS coupons from various outlets.

I'll add one more. If the cashier hits total and then you add something to the order it knocks the CVS coupons out and sometimes when they come back on they are yellow or red. This is a register issue and has nothing to do with the coupons themselves.

Then the list will be approximately equivalent to the list of all CVS CRTs.
In recent weeks, whenever I want to use a CVS coupon, it always shows up either yellow or red, and cashiers here do not usually override.

I wanted to report back what happened to me at CVS this afternoon. All my CVS app coupons did not get applied and 2 CRT's was not applied either. After my transaction, I knew my $2 Persil and $1 Coke App Qs did not get applied, and the cashier gave me $3 cash, so I left the store. I thought that was it until I checked my receipt at work. I called CS and they told me that they will contact the manager to pull the CRTs that did not get applied. I went later in the evening, and the supervisor gave me $4 for my missed CRT's. I just realized that I'm still missing $1 for Barbasol App Q. The cashier scanned all my Qs and she hit total.
This was was my transaction:
2 - M&M Almond = $6
2 - Coke 2-liter = $2.50
1 - Persil detergent = $4.88
1- Barbasol shave cream = $1.50
2- Scope Outlast = $7.98
1 - Venus razor = $8.99
1 - Venus swirl = $10.99
1 - CVS food thickener = $22.49
1- Duo Fusion 20 ct = 10.49
Used the following MQs: (2) $3 Venus, $1 M&M, (2) $1.50 Crest, $0.50 Barbosal, & $6 Zantac Duo
Used the following CVS Qs Applied on my receipt: $4/20 Nutrition, 30% Email Q ($16.85), $2/2 M&M's, $2 Venus shaver, $5 CVS Zantac Duo
These are the Qs that did NOT apply on my receipt:
$3 venus swirl CRT
$1 Mouthwash CRT
$2 In App Q Persil
$1 In App Q Barbasol
$1 In App Q for 2 Coke-2liter
**it was no problem getting my refund/money card for the miss qs, but it was a hassle during my lunch. I hate doing a big transaction w/o having enough time to review my receipt. All my in App Qs are still showing on my app..go figure.

Three times in the last month 1-2 ECBs came up "already redeemed."
Cashiers are always reluctant to override these, but no way I could have used them, and now it
seems to be a pattern. to get that error.

I've had that happen, too, and it totally sucks. You go to use the ecb's that you just ripped off of your receipt and they tell you that they're not valid...

Attempted to use a 7 ECB earlier (PFormula that'd printed on Sat) - it came up as redeemed. Cashier / MOD were reluctant to accept, which was understandable.
Called CS and they re-issued a courtesy 7 ECB, but on her end, she'd said that it was coming up as redeemed as well,which didn't make sense to me.

This has happened to me a few times recently as well and they were both for high $ ecbs ($8 and $10). Cashier tried to hand back to me saying it's been redeemed,but I had them call a manager and he put it through. They were from a recent transaction too.
