* my boyfriend gave the cashier all of his coupons and extrabucks at once. the cashier scanned in the eb before all of the coupons. when he got to the last coupon (-$1 off $3 of any cold or allergy products cvs coupon) the balance remaining was $.99. he told us he couldn't take the coupon. i asked him to adjust it to $.99 and he said he could not. i should have just let it go, but instead i asked him to void the transaction. he didn't want to call the manager. so he entered a fictional cvs coupon for $.50 and asked me "are you happy now?" i should have just let it go again at that point, but instead i jumped over the counter... no wait, that didn't happen. we paid our $.49 and i tried to give the cashier the last coupon for his drawer but he didn't want it. i still can't understand why the cashier thought it was okay to put in a cvs coupon for $.50 but not $.99. have you ever tried to use a dollar coupon on $.99 and been told you could only get $.50 off? what is this, a negotiation? reverse double coupons? are you really still reading this? :)

profit of both transactions combined: $1.79 ♥
