I managed to swing by a CVS Pharmacy store on my very hot 4.5 mile walk today, and amazingly I managed to put together a CVS shopping scenario that would fit the $7.99 CVS bucks that I needed to roll over, and it included my favorite conditioner.
At the scanner I received a very rare $2 off $10 CVS coupon, and while I thought it could only be used on food product (this is what a cashier had told me in the past), this cashier scanned it just in case, and sure enough it took $2 off. Of course this messed up my already planned out trip, so I had to throw in a couple of items. I grabbed 2 Cadburry eggs (four packs), which were regularly $2.99 each. They were on Easter clearance at $1.19 each. As soon as I stepped out the door I wished I had grabbed the toilet paper instead, but it was one of those spontaneous moments at the register with people behind me in the line, so I had to think fast (and apparently I thought fast but not smart enough).
While I did look at my receipt several times, it was not until I got home that I realized that the $1 CVS Extra Bucks did not print for the Pantene. I also noticed that they were priced differently, although it was the same size, they were right next to each other on the shelf, and they had been advertised as being a part of the sale. I called up CVS Customer Service, to ask about it. The customer service representative could not see the purchase yet (I think she said it would not show until after 24 hours, but she said that once she could verify the purchase, she would add the $1 CVS Extra buck to my card. Once again CVS Customer Service came through, and I can highly recommend that you give them a call, if you have any CVS issue, question, or compliment.
Once again Cheryl’s CVS Tax tip, saved me money. If I had used the coupons first, I would have had to pay more out of pocket, but since I used the CVS Extra bucks, it worked out just like I had hoped with a minimum out-of-pocket amount.
