I rarely make it to Walgreen’s for four reasons. 1) It is out of my way 2) I always end up leaving frustrated, because they mess up the order somehow. 3) Walgreen’s is very coupon hostile 4) They are always out of their sales products
Still, once in a while, I’ll see a couple of deals in the weekly ad that will make me stop by, but I always seem to come back to the three points above….and this week was no different.
The Walgreens coupon for the kitchen towels did not scan – the only coupon I used. The cashier did not notify me that it did not scan, and I only found out, because I stopped to check my receipt before leaving. When I returned to ask about it, the cashier made a big deal about how the coupon did not match the paper towels that I had purchased, even though it clearly stated it on the coupon and in the weekly ad.
Walgreens were also out of the cashews that I had intended to buy, and although I did pick up some of the mixed nuts, I was not content with the high amount of peanuts.
Oh well, maybe one day I’ll learn. The deals at Walgreen’s are hardly ever good enough to make a trip there…because I prefer to avoid the frustrations.
