So here is the rest of the story… After I got done with my botched Walgreens trip I finally made it to CVS. I was so delighted that they still had Nivea tins on the shelf and I didn’t even take them all. I had already done the Eucerin clearance deals three times so I knew that I could only do the deal three more times. I didn’t have big plans for CVS this week so I got the Nivea and the Coke and preceeded to checkout.
When I got up there the only cashier was backed up and had to call someone else to come up to the front. It just so happened that it was the Asst. Manager. I rang up my Nivea first because I wanted to use those rewards to pay for my cokes. When the receipt printed out and there was an $18 ECB at the bottom he looked back up at the top of the receipt and then commented on how he really wished they would not make mistakes like this and that someone should lose their job and when several people “like me” do this then the company is losing alot of money. Then he tore my $18 ECB off. I thought he was going to keep it and that was not going to fly with me. I told him ummmm…..that is mine. He said with all sarcasm and spitefullness that he knew but he was going to use it for my coke purchase. It is a good thing that I planned on doing it that way because he would have seen a different side of me. He went to ring up my 12 12pks and was going to use their shortcut at the counter to scan 12 Coke barcodes. I asked him politely to please scan the Mello Yello separately because I need for the receipt to say Mello Yello and not Coke. He asked if there was a specific reason why I needed that as he was rolling his eyes. I told him yes, because I needed to submit the receipt on my Ibotta app so I can get another $.75 back and the receipt has to say Mello Yello because I had problems once before when they rang them all up as coke. He did it but geez why do I have to tell him why I wanted it done that way. (Just to let you know when they did that before Ibotta denied my receipt but I sent them an email explaining what happened and they deposited all of the money with no other questions asked. I love Ibotta!) So here is how it went…
