My Trip to CVS and Rite Aid

On Sunday, everything that could go wrong did go wrong.  I had completely forgotten that in our 8/6 Red Plums in San Diego, came as an almost abbreviated version and we did not get the $2 Got2b styler coupon…at least, in my two sets of Red Plums, I bought at the $.99 Store.  However, since I had $4 in Extra Bucks on my old card, I went ahead and got the Got2b styler at CVS.  In my mind, Extra Bucks and any store rewards are sunk costs so I might as well use them to turn them into cash!

OMG, I went late morning, to do my drugstore shopping, and when I got to Rite Aid, nothing was tagged and the Rite Aid ad had no specific sizes in the ad.

I had remembered that the GE LED 1 ct for $7.99 and I bought 2 of the exact same kinds of LEDs and I got 700 points for one and no points for the other.

I bought two of the Crest 500ml mouthwash and I got (2) 300 points.

However, I bought the toothpaste, no points and I bought the Oral-B toothbrushes and no points.

I did not realized until I got home and looked at my receipt that I did not get back all of my points.  Therefore, I will be returning all the items in which I did not get the points.

On top of that, I submitted for the $.50 Crest Mouthwash Ibotta rebate and I used my CVS receipt!  Ugghhh!

It was a truly a everything went wrong type of shopping trip!  It happens to the best of us.
