So I stopped in walgreens and tried to pick up a Venus razor, but they were out 🙁 Too bad. I did get a couple of packages of Oreos though and I got five 4 packs of Hunts pudding to finish up the Conagra rebate for this month. OOP was $0.38 and I will get $5 back for the rebate and a $3 RR printed for the Oreos. I did use one of my $10 RR though.
An odd thing happened at the register though. The cost came up $0.48 and I scanned my gift card. Then it came up that I owed $0.36. Hmm, I thought I had more (I knew I had less than a dollar but I thought it was more than eight cents!). I laughed, paid the OOP and asked her to throw the card away for me. When I got home I looked at my receipt and it showed that I still had a balance of $0.76 on my card, but the scanner only took $0.08 off? Not that $0.36 OOP is a lot and the $0.68 I lost by throwing the card away isn’t much either…. but still definitely something to watch for!
I tried to use my card a few days ago and it came up as “ineligible” for my purchase (cookies, cleaning supplies, and makeup). A manager had to override it. Don’t throw your cards away if this happens to you!
