Default Epic fail of a trip, purchased NOTHING.

So I had my hopes up for the naturemade vitamin bogo deal with the scanner Q but hadn't realized it was only for the 80+ packs, which didn't include the minis or the vitamelts, what I wanted. So poo on that.
I wound up grabbing 4 revlon nail polishes at 5.99 each bobo50%, 4 energy shot things, and two almay makeup removers 5.99 bogo50%. I had 4 revlon scanner Qs, and four $1/1 nail polish tearpad Qs. I had 2 bogo mani qs and 2 bogo cvs qs for the aeroshots. Lastly, I had 2 almay $4/1 mani qs.
The nail polish qs beeped for some reason, she was only able to take the scanner qs and not the tearpads. She said it was because the coupon says "One coupon per purchase", I told her what that meant, how you can't obviously use two mani qs on one product (there are some exceptions but yall know that anyway.), and then proceeded to tell me that "they" are changing coupons now and that's why it beeped. So I said oh well, take em off. Yes, I will put something back for $4 lol. So then we did the almay qs, which also beeped, she wouldn't force them in either, same reason, so I took those off. THEN she completely refused to even try to stack the mani and the cvs aeroshot Qs, and when her manager came over, he also carefully explained how they don't double qs when the coupon says don't double. I told him what it meant to double and he didn't believe me I guess. I was quite fed up with the lot of them at this point and stormed off without buying anything (I also wanted the cuties, they were 2/$5) and man I was heated. I'm still heated. This kinda crap makes me want to stop shopping at CVS permanently. The cashier and her manager were also new, I assume, because I've never seen them there and I've been shopping this store for years. Looks like they've neglected to train the noobs again. Still mad. Gr. I'll try again tomorrow at a different store.

Goodness, they don't know what they are talking about, that is basic coupon knowledge, basic coupon wording.

I can completely see why you are frustrated.

I think the last time I tried to use a Revlon q on nail polish it beeped and they said they wouldn't take it for nail polish but that just what the cashier said. Maybe someone on here knows for sure.

Don't give up just drive about a mile down the road to a different cvs and try again.

Please call corp and tell them exactly what was said. The manager and cashier don't have a clue about couponing. They both need further training.

I thought the tear pads are only good on the "color stay" polish (8.49 @my store) so i got the ones that didnt say anything on them. Sum say top speed, colorstay, and sum r just blank.

I'm sorry that your trip didn't go as you planed. :-( Sounds like new cashier & manager have to learn more about coupons & their coupon policy. I have the same Revlon Nail Polish tearpads. Those Revlon coupons always beep on the Top Speed/scented NP because the UPC code doesn't match with them. Yes, please try a different store.


ETA: oh, and I think 5.99 Revlon NP is better deal this week($4ECB/$10) than last week(BOGO50% & $5ECB/$15.) 5.99*2= 11.98, Use 2 TP & 2 CRT=-$8 OOP$3.98 and Get $4
