- 5 Nabisco Snack Packs $2.88 each, got back $20 in catalinas = $5.60 profit
Also hit up Rite Aid for free Softsoap:
- 4 Softsoap Body Washes $2.99 each, used four $1 coupons (9/25 SS) and got back four $2 UP's (Limit 4) = FREE/$0.01 profit
I went out to the parking lot and called the 1-800 number for Rite Aid. I spoke to a very nice gal in Customer Service who confirmed that I was correct and I held on the line while she called the store manager. It was really loud in the parking lot so I headed back inside the store to wait. I could hear the cashier saying - Ed, Corporate's on the line for you! (picture me snickering) After a couple minutes, she got back on the line to tell me she'd spoken to the manager and I could go back for my raincheck. I thanked her and headed back to the registers. The manager walked over to the cashier and was explaining how they should issue raincheck if I came back. The cashier says - oh, she won't be back. I walked right up and said "hi, I'm right here." The look on her face - priceless!
She then walked to the body wash aisle with me and made me choose a particular variety of the Softsoap. Me - "can't I get a raincheck for any variety within the sizes that are on sale?" Cashier - "no, you have to choose one." Oook, I picked the pomegranate variety, she ripped the UPC sticker off the shelf and went back to the front. She scanned the tag and printed a raincheck from the register for that particular variety. She even scanned my Wellness card and had that info on the raincheck too. Anyone else's stores do this? That was a first for me.
She wrote the raincheck for limit one, but the sale this week is limit four. I asked to have the limit increased and she said to me - "we only write rainchecks for limit one." Really, cuz you weren't so right about your policy earlier! She called for the manager, we waited, she called again, we waited some more, she called again and then took the customer behind me. The customer had a return so he needed the manager too. Now the three of us waited, and waited, and waited. He finally strolled back into the store (he was somewhere outside) and said it was fine for me to get four. What a hassle! I easily spent 20-25 minutes for a lousy raincheck. At least I can get my free body wash! The things I'll do for a deal....
