While picking up my medicine at Walmart, I decided to take advantage of the current multitude o’ moneymakers & freebies! I’ve paid off my $9 prescription with overage alone before. Could I do it this time, too?
The answer to that is a loud, resounding “no”. I was hoping to find the cheap Benefiber packets, but I didn’t even see a shelf space for them at my local store. And then at the checkout, the cashier adjusted down both of the TENA coupons. Last time I used them, the $7 coupon went through at full value. I guess Walmart changed that little “oversight”. And the cashier was sure to let me know her displeasure about the whole thing, too. “I hate these coupons we have to key in!”
She huffed. She sighed. She frowned. Apparently when you key in a coupon, you need a Customer Service Manager to come over and do whatever magic they do on the register. An employee walking from the Customer Service area looked over at the already irritated cashier. “You waiting for a CSM, too?” Cashier nods, and the other employee lets out a howl of laughter while walking away. “I don’t think that’s funny,” mumbled the cashier. And I was half-tempted to mutter, “Me neither.”
But in the end, I left with a decent haul of stuff and still knocked a few dollars off my prescription. So I can’t complain (too much).
