This is a perfect example of why some things are just not for me.
If you have been following along with the whole CVS saga - you already know that BloggyFriendMindi from The Queen Mum has been kind enough to work out a scenario for me on her new blog Moms Need To Know, because I require special assistance with these things - a steep learning curve, if you will. SO! After realizing the my coupon had expired - the $4/$20 one - I did what Mindi said to do and called CVS for help. I first spoke to the Extra Care people - the folks that handle the card itself... they promptly told me that this is a function of cvs.com and transferred me there. The young man there said he couldn't help me. He didn't have any left. Then he said he found one. Then he said he didn't have it. Then he said - oh yes! Yes indeed - his manger has one. I gave him my email address and went to run my errands.
I went to Aldi (that place RAWKS!!) and then I went to CVS. I figured since I was out, why not just do transaction number one... so I did. I had to dig for about 15 minutes for a toothbrush but I finally found one that matched the advert. Grabbed the flouride mouthwash and the band-aids and checked out - got my extra care bucks. Went to Goodwill (scored a lovely Jones New York Dress for $6.50 and a gofit.net balance board for $4) and then went home. Where I found this lovely email:
