Walgreens has been a mess for me lately. At my store the Walgreens coupons in the monthly book always beep these days. Once upon a time I could go in there and get as many items as manufacturer coupons and it would go through just fine. Not anymore! Last time I went to Walgreens I left with nothing. This time everything got messed up.
The last time these disposable razors were in the monthly book I went in used all the coupons I had in one order. The monthly coupon had a couple different razors on one and it all worked. It took of $2 for each one. Not this time.

Boost Kid Essentials $13.49
2 Gillette Fusion Combo Pack @ $8.99 (these were clearly marked $4.99 but rang up wrong)
Xtreme 3 Razor $4.99
Shick Quattro Disposable $4.99
ST Twin Disposable $4.99
Gillette Venus Spa Breeze $8.99

~Coupons~ -
$13.49 Free boost Coupon

2 $4 off Gillette Fusion

3 $2 off Shick Disposables

$2 Venus

The instore coupon beeped. The cashier messed with it and by this time a line was forming

My total was $27.47 Huh?? I payed stepped outside to collect my thoughts. I realized the Gillette was wrong and that I got no Register Rewards.

I came back and the manager rerang the Gillette packs and I got a refund of $8.68
Then he rerang the Venus and this time I got my $6 in RR.

I didn't realize until I was leaving again that I only got $2 taken off for 1 of the disposables. So it should have been $4 cheaper.

But my final total was $18.89 and earned $6 Register Rewards

I used the $6 Register Rewards to buy:

3 jars Skippy @ 3/$5
Orbit Gum $1.29

$6 Register Rewards

Total Paid 35 cents

Last, I had a CRT from CVS for a New or Transferred prescription. My daughter has 4 monthly prescriptions so off I went to get my $25 gift card. I considered this to be FREE money and didn't take it out of my budget.

2 Johnson and Johnson Bandages with Neosporin 5ct @ $4.99 each

Total Spent $2.49 on gift card and 20cents cash. This didn't produce the ECBs so the Mgr had to force them. Earned $2 ECBs
