Shopping Til I Drop: Walgreens Midnight Madness

Posted by & filed under , , , , , , .

I am posting fresh from a midnight spree at the 24-hour Walgreens. Would I do it again? Probably not. 😉 The shelves were decently stocked (the only things I didn’t manage to find were the Reach toothbrushes and another bottle of Swisse vitamins.) The company was pleasant… Mom and I were getting giddy from being so tired, I think. We bumped into a nice married couple that was also shopping the deals. There were two other couponing women there that had already done their shopping before we had even showed up. They were just sitting around with their carts loaded, waiting for the new sale to activate.

I have to give MAJOR kudos to “The Most Awesome Cashier in the Universe” (that’s his official title from now on) for having the patience of a saint. The Black Friday sale prices weren’t ringing up for like 90% of the items. So… the cashier would scan an item, Mom and I would scour the ad to find said item, and then our dear cashier would have to modify the price to the correct sale price. And we did this for maybe all but two items in my three transactions.

I’ll most definitely be filling out those receipt surveys. Definitely. Expect a few glowing reviews, Mr. Most Awesome Cashier in the Universe.

The Register Rewards were printing without any issues, but I noticed the values were rounded up. I didn’t get any RR’s for like $2.99 or $1.99. When I went to use my RR’s from the first transaction, the extra couple of cents threw off my 2nd transaction and I couldn’t use my $5/1 Swisse coupon because it’d put me into overage territory. (Oops!) And since coupons had been rung up already, it was too late to add anything to the order without voiding the whole thing first.

And I was NOT about to do that to our poor cashier. So, we ended up paying a few bucks more. Then we solved the issue for Transaction 3 with some sweet, delicious filler …namely, Snickers.

Oh man, I’m rambling. There were plenty of coupons I missed out on or just didn’t get in our newspaper inserts, so if you’re making your list make sure to check it twice. 😉
