... cashier scanned all other coupons and put my $2 off $10 to the side, then told me i could not use it because i needed to have a $10 purchase after all other coupons. i informed her that this has not been the case with other stores or other cashiers and she asked me to call the cvs 800 #. so i did. of course the customer service rep said i should have been able to use it and that she would contact the store to make sure they have the policy straight. and i will receive an extra $2 ecb for my trouble. i've always said i would never call over a couple of dollars with all the $ i save at cvs, but i've heard from others that this particular cashier does this to everyone and i felt like somebody had to straighten her out!
so... once i receive my $2 ecb:
♥ total profit: $5.71
