So yesterday was an odd day for me at CVS. Normally CVS trips I don’t have to worry about things going wrong. They just work. Not this week apparently. During the first transaction every single Tena coupon beeped. (The cashier manually overrode this.) During the second transaction, for some odd reason, one of my Extra Bucks beeped, so the cashier put it in manually as a CVS coupon. Because of that change, the amount deducted by my 30% off email coupon dropped turning that second transaction from having a small profit to costing me a small amount. Actually, it has the potential to cost me more, as the Optic White toothbrushes didn’t count towards their Extra Bucks deal either and thus I was shorted $10 in Extra Bucks. CVS has always been good about making things right, so I am going to assume that they will print manual Extra Bucks for me tomorrow. Still even with the hiccups, a profit on over $70 worth of stuff is nothing to sneeze at, so assuming they make the Colgate Optic White right, I’m ok. So here’s how it went:
For some reason every single Tena coupon beeped but the cashier overrode the machine.

I kinda got the short end of the stick with my % off coupon. For some odd reason one of my Extra Bucks beeped, so the cashier put it in manually as a CVS coupon. (Most Extra Bucks are manufacturer funded.) Only because the % off coupons are calculated off the post CVS coupon amount, it dropped almost $2 off my % off coupon. 🙁
