I Earned $10 This Week During My CVS Run (But Made A BIG Mistake)

I did insanely well this weekend at CVS, but later realized it was because I made a mistake. I accidentally misread the circular and CONVINCED one of the CVS reps that I was supposed to receive an extra $10 in ERB. BUT I WAS WRONG.

I feel bad – but it wasn’t intentional.

Look at the front cover of CVS. ┬áIt says spend $30 and get $10 ERB from any of “these” products. Well, I read that as everything on the front page because Oral B and Crest are both P&G brands. So I worked it out that I spent $30 from the front page and expected to get the $10 back PLUS $6 back (for buying 2 oral b brushes) PLUS $3.29 twice (for buying 2 mouthwashes) back. It didn’t come up that way, I fought the guy and he gave me the $10 anyway.

When I got home, I noticed that there was something wrong with the mouthwash and returned them and THAT’S when I saw I completely fudged. EEK!

In the end – If I include the mistake – I bought $43 worth of product and paid out of my pocket $5.83 and then received $16 back.

  2. An interesting discussion is definitely worth comment.
    I believe that you should write more about this topic, it might
    not be a taboo matter but usually people don’t speak about
    such subjects. To the next! Many thanks!!
