notes:a few weeks ago, when i went to the register to check out, the cashier handed me a crt to fill in my email address with promises of a $4/$20 coupon. cvs does this once in a while and i think i got the coupon the first time i did it, but not afterwards. so i was shocked to receive this $4/$20 in my email.

then i realized something... since it had already printed before i checked out, i'm thinking it belonged to the customer before me. no wonder i got the coupon, it was really meant for that previous customer who now has my email address attached to their card!

the $4/$20 was a 13-digit one time use coupon, so i was able to use it with my card without any beeps. but if i get any weekly emails with $/$$ coupons for this account, they will beep.
