I think this would be a great outlet to post our concerns, rants, etc.....on our WAGS experiences due to low stock, new ECers, & S&Gers.

For what it's worth I do believe that low stock is more of an issue than S&Gers, but they and new ECers are definitely playing a huge role in the issues that we are all encountering. Frown

Me too. I hate the entire thing. I'm down to two drugstores and barely looking over my shoulder at Wags now. Every time I do venture in to see the employees I like, they ask why I'm not buying anything. Oh, I am. Just not at Walgreens. Wink

I went out today for the 2nd time in 2 weeks I think. Unfortunately, I don't have RA and only 2 CVS within a decent driving distance. I'm just spoiled by the Wags on every corner and I just haven't come to the realization that I'm going to have to add more stores. Frown

Well, I now have over 800k in points and nothing to spend them on.Mad I checked out the Kmart thread already, now on to the CVS thread. Target will be last.Confused Anyone have any suggestions on which store would be best for me. I do resell so that does make a difference for me. I don't clear shelves so I have stayed with Wags because they are everywhere around me and I have more stock at the next store. Wink

I resell as well and since Wags has been a mess with the new points system I have had to venture out and the best place for quantity is at KMart IMO, my 2 closest Targets are always cleared out of any good deals plus they HATE coupons. I have 1 SuperK store close that is great and they love my coupons and don't mind me training their new cashiers ha. When they have the P&G spend $30 get $10 it can be rolled most of the time and there's a ton of great freebies since they dbl up to $1. hth

It does! Thanks for your response. I'm used to shopping at least 5 days a week and I have been out twice in the past two weeks. OMG The vacation was nice but I'm ready to go back to work...lol. I will probably be heading out to Kmart in the next few days to see how friendly they are. I might try to pick up Target after that since 2 of the 3 Kmarts that are close to me are very close to a Target as well. D@^# you Walgreens!!Blowup

I don't like it either.
I have heard cashiers say they don't like it.

I'm not a big Walgreen shopper, but had a couple of those $1/2 Necco coupon and Walgreens have the peanut butter kisses for 99¢. So I give the cashier my phone number, and he says, "Oh you gotta have a card." So he inputs all my information, then the machine freezes. He calls a mgr who took his sweet time getting there, then fiddled and didn't accomplish anything. Long line building up. I finally said "forget it" but he says, Oh no we'll get it to work. I don't know what he did finally but I got my 4 bags of candy for 49¢ each and was out of there. Never did get my card. Why wouldn't he just let me use my phone #? That's what they told me was all I needed when this started this up.

Wags employees are just like any other occupation.
You have some outstanding ones and you have some idiots.

I have observed over many years of Wagging that most of Wags customers are not browsers. They are convenience shoppers. These shoppers will not care about this card, or will want it or use it. They use Wags as a mega-convenience store – run in, get a couple of things quick, and pay whatever the price is. If it happens to be on sale, great, if not, great. They do not want to jump through 10 hoops that will slow them down.
I saw this today. Lady did not have a card and emphatically told the clerk that she did not want one. Was buying some doodad rang up $5.99 but she was expecting it to ring up $3.29 or something like that. Clerk said that she had to use the card to get the sale price now and wouldn't you like to join? It will only take a couple of minutes? Lady got pissy, paid the $5.99 and left.

I decided to sort of loiter near the front, pretending to examine all the hot Taylor Swift merchandise Big Grin, and watched the next 10 ish customers just because I was curious. The clerk was very good and asked everyone if they had a card and asked everyone if they wanted to join. 3 people had a card, the others did not, and declined her offer to get a card, and paid full price for everything.
