I also have issues with the one of the Walgreens down here. I was told at one point that they were only allowed to take TWO coupons PER TRANSACTION.. Just ridiculous…. but you better believe I did 7 different transactions with one item a piece.

I got a coupon from the CVS scanner that said double extra bucks that will print 1/1/13-2/13/13. What exactly does that mean? When I purchase items during that time I’ll get double the extra bucks?

Wowza… time to update your Rite Aid 101. It’s still SCR.

Cali, I keep hoping for 35 hours in a day and so far my wish has not come true. :)

Where can I find an explanation to what all the abbreviations are?
Thanks, Lisa

I just logged onto my Walgreens app to refill a prescription and it looked like they’re doing a “load coupons onto your card” type thing now. Is that for real? Is it only my Walgreens in the area so far? I’m Sacramento as well.
