What? A CVS disaster works for me? Let me tell you what happened.
Last week I decided that I must get in the CVS game. 18 of you lovely ladies gave me your best help in understanding how to play. Most importantly several of you told me not to give up, to give it at least three months.
I bought my first Sunday paper in ages, studied the CVS circular and cut out coupons. I made lists of needed school supplies with prices. I studied blogs dedicated to CVS and memorized your comments. I spent a few hours trying to learn the rules.
The first mishap occurred when I tried to download a national CVS coupon for $3.00 off, in two places. Neither would print. Waited a day, found the link wouldn’t even open. Taking all my "paperwork" and two of the boys, we carefully set out anyway to enter CVS.
We did our shopping and rang up our items. The receipt said there was a problem with my new CVS card. Their were no ECB’s at the bottom of my carefully planned bill. The manager told me to call customer service when I got home. Huh? And tell them what? That I didn’t get $200 for passing go?
Then the manager took me over to show me the red electronic coupon box, but it was out of paper. He wasn’t sure how to change the paper. We had been there for 45 minutes at that point, so I took my items and we left.
Okay, so now I remember why I don’t like to do coupons. It was downright painful. But, I do remember all of you telling me not to give up. So I won’t. Bring your A- game again CVS, in fact bring everything you’ve got. Only one of us is going to win this game, and it won’t be you!
Perseverance and patience will work for me!
