Rite Aid

In addition to bad math skills, my eyesight is going, too. When I was sent this deal, I didn't see the little minus sign indicating the total was a negative amount. Sooo, when my total including tax went into the negative, it refused my last $2/3 coupon. Blah. I coulda got another $1.00 worth of something.

$1.99 Candy x 6
$4.99 Visine x 2
= $21.92

-$5/$20 Vv q
-$2/3 Candy MQ x 2
-$2/3 Candy in-ad q x 2
-$2.00 Visine MQ x 2
-$3.00 Visine in-ad q x 2

Total $0.92 + .71 tax = $1.63 oop
$9.98 towards J&J SCR for Visine

lol- sorry about that!! I thought I had enough to cover each transaction I did today, but I had one that still beeped! I threw in a bottle of water and then I was good. :)

She wouldn't let me get something else.
She gave me this story about how spanish and indian people come in using coupons for more than the cost of the item and wanted to get cash back and they fuss with them so The Company told them they couldn't take the coupons even with other stuff to cover the rest of it.

I assume that had something to do with the register saying "Coupon amount exceeds (something or ruther)", so she didn't want me to use the coupon to get something else. I guess.

Oh well, I'll do better next time.
