Rite Aid + CVS + Shelly = OOC

I was up at the crack of dawn with the littles this morning so I headed out and got all of my shopping done by 7:30. Yawn. Here are the pictures of my multiple-now-the-cashiers-know-I'm-crazy-transactions.
I'm seriously thinking about *giving up* CVS. I'm to the point in my stockpile where I don't need a lot of stuff and I find that they feature the same things over and over. I don't know...I burned up quite a few ECBs this week though =)

  1. Awesome, awesome, awesome! I just got back from Rite Aid myself. I'll admit I'm such a loony - I just can't get up the guts to walk up to the register and tell the casier I want to do more than one transaction! Have you ever had them tell you no, or give you the grumpy face?
    Contributing to the problem is the fact that for some reason, the coupons I print off DO NOT SCAN at Rite Aid. No problems anywhere else ... maybe their scanners are older at my Rite Aid?
    Consequently I feel like I'm trying to get away with something esp. w/ the $5 of $25. GAH! I wish I could just get over myself already!

    SO point of this post is- how'd you get hooked up w/ a $3/1 Olay mailer? COOL.

  2. i don't know WHAT the deal is with rite aid scanners! i too have noticed that my rite aid coupons (video values) are the hardest for them to scan! i think they must be old fashioned or something! the scanners are CVS scan everything with NO problem!

    i think i signed up for the olay coupon at it was a while ago and i just hadn't had a chance to use it!

    i'm pretty much over the coupon angst. now that i know my cashiers and what time i should go to the store it's much easier! if i feel really weird about a trasnaction i just make my husband do it =) he doesn't mind! ha!

  3. Well, that makes me feel better that it's not just my poor ole' Rite Aid that has scanner malfunctions. For sure makes me feel like shooting an e-mail to corporate about it. I mean YOUR OWN COUPONS, PEOPLE! Weird.

    I used to use Olay religiously before I worked @ Clinique and got loads of that stuff for next to nothing. My supply is just now running out. Even without that $3 off coupon, my fingers were itching to pull that Olay off the shelf! I may anyway. Love it!

  4. Oh, and I actually got Jason to take TWO coupons (with his list) on a small grocery run the other day, and he remembered to hand them to the cashier. Baby steps, my friend, baby steps.
