Manager was called over and she told me it wouldn't print the RR when I used a manufacturer coupon. GIVE ME A BREAK! I told her to cancel it out then. She told me ok, canceled it out, re-rung it without the coupon on it and the RR printed out. She handed me the RR and the new receipt. wth? oh well.

On to #2
2 Skippy Peanut Butter $1.50 each
2 Snuggle Fabric Softener $3.99 each
1 Rice Krispies treats $2.50
1 Soft Batch cookies $2.50

2 Skippy Pnt Butter coupons .50 each (RP 3.28)
2 Snuggle coupons $3 each (RP 3/28)
$5 rr from #1
AND the $2 coupon in the monthly book for the cookies & rice treats.

She was talking to me about the first transaction and how Monday the shampoo RR's were rolling while I was trying to hand her the coupon and money, and she didnt scan the coupon, handed me my receipt and change.

OOP was $4.09
once I got home I seen she didn't scan the coupon and gave me back $4 change too much. So I ended up making $2 on this deal. geez what a mess!

OOP $2.93 for all that dog food, toilet paper, kleenex and candy. LOVE IT!

All this for right at $20 out of pocket and I still have $5.49 in extra care bucks for CVS and $3 in register rewards for Walgreens.


  1. Yeah, this time the Wags managers are right. The $5/2 coupon is coded the same as the RR is. So the register things you used an RR on the item, and wont print another one. Kind of stinks :( I hope they dont start doing this more often!

  2. Sarah I hope they don't either! Just when I think I've got it down, they change the rules. The cashier was telling me that the shaving gel was doing the same thing! I didn't have a coupon for it though. if they have indeed changed the rules.... yikes! what are we going to do? lol
