Walgreens, Target

This week by far has been the most frustrating week I have ever had with couponing!!! Let me explain. My plan for Walgreens was A+ worthy until I went to the blasted store! Monday we had to take my car to the shop in a different town so, I decided to hit up their Walgreens and CVS. CVS was good. I spent $25 and got $10 back in ECB. Then, on to Walgreens. I looked everywhere for their Zest body wash. They didn't carry it at all. So, I'm a little confused as to why it's advertised but they don't even carry it on a normal basis? So, I found everything else. I got to the register and did Transaction #1. I was suppose to get $3RR back and I didn't. When I asked she said, "Oh, well it's not working." So, I lost $3!!!! I was so mad. I didn't buy anything else and we left. Then, on Wednesday I ended up going to 4 Walgreens to find the items I needed! Talk about ridiculous. Then, they have the nerve to limit the transactions to 2 even if you go to the back of the line and there's nobody there! My husband had to go in and finish getting the stuff I needed because they refused to check me out when there were no other customers! Awful, Awful, Awful!!!
