    Faye -- Did you find out about the flu coupon booklet? I might stop by and see!

  • Nancy Oct 17, 2011

    claytonsaver, you really have to factor in your wellness discount level (10 or 20%) when you do those deals WYB $ amounts. I know I've messed up in the past doing that. All the while, you save more money with the discount AND buying the min required LOL

  • claytonsaver Oct 17, 2011

    sbigham, I think that involved a $2 UP that was regional and not available here. BTW, I did not even get the $5 UP WYB$10. Think my 10% off Wellness messed it up.

    Last week, when I went to riteaid there were two women, who cleared the shelves, by having 2 rewards card each. They say that they are for their sisters that don't like to shop. I am going to call corporate today and find out what their policy is on this. It should be one card per person per day. Or at least one card per person per store. It just isn't right. Hopefully they will tell me that someone can't do that and contact the manager. There were three of us standing there that couldn't get the things we wanted because the others had cleared the shelves.
    "That" show has ruined it for a lot of us.

    labs -- they took my coupon yesterday, but I also put it at the bottom of the pile.

    I let Walgreen's keep their Reach toothbrush after they did not accept my "MANUFACTURER'S" coupon with the Walmart icon. The coupon did NOT state redeem only at Walmart and the number started with a 5. They wouldn't even scan it.
    I will call Walgreen's and COMPLAIN.
    Get well soon

    Thanks delaneymoney!

    FYI - Some have reported that since the Rite Aid booklet says No Purchase Necessary, some pharmacies are giving it out without having to get the shot. I'm going to check it out on Monday when I am going to be very close to the Clayton Rite Aid.

  • sbigham3 Oct 16, 2011

    All the merchandise was on the shelves today for me except the Organix cough drops. Another site is listing Conair brushes as free after + ups with the $1/1 Conair VV q. Has anyone done that deal yet?

  • delaneymoney Oct 16, 2011

    if anyone has gotten their flu shot at rite aid - they give you a free coupon book! it has $100 worth of rite aid coupons that can be used with a manufacturers coupon. mine has a $1 off sucrets, so free cough drops!

  • Faye Prosser - Smart Shopper Oct 16, 2011

    It's no fun when you know the store is not handling a coupon the way it should. :-( You may want to consider calling corporate to discuss your experience and the policy error. The more people who bring it to the attention of customer service, the better. I hope you feel better soon, momboozer!
