    I agree!!! Not worth the time. The thing I love about CVS is that I don’t have to keep track of how many points I have. Too many to track.

  2. Dena says

    I HATE being in the test market. I ticks me off to see all the deals that I’m missing out on. Walgreens can keep there points! I really don’t want them.

      i haven’t shopped at WAGS in 4 months because of their stupid points! we are totally getting jipped out of good savings! plus the KC stores have some of the worst staff — they have NO regard for customer service! What an unpleasant experience the Walgreens store has chosen to create.

  3. eppie says

    I just went to purchase the Scotch tape. I had my 4 coupons (the Wags coupon was limit 4) and had a filler item to account for my RR. The goal was to have 2 sets of 2/$3 (=$6) minus 4 $1 coupons (=$2) minus $2 RR (=just sales tax). I had four packs of tape, a filler, and four coupons and a RR. After THREE manufacturer’s coupons, the register wouldn’t take anymore. And the customer service was no better. I’ve emailed Walgreens to see what happened, but I’m not too thrilled about it.

    • Tracie says

      If you were used 4 manufacturer’s couons and 2 RR, you needed to have 6 items in your cart. The reason is that RR are the same as manufacturer’s coupons. So, if it deducted the two RR and then one manufacturer’s coupon, that would be why.
