CVS math

October 31st, 2012 at 11:31 am

It's been a while since I've "done the deals" couponing, but my stash of shampoo etc was getting low and I noticed a bunch of BOGO coupons about to expire for brands I stock up on.

So off the CVS today.

I bought
8 herbal Essence shamp/cond. @ $2.99/ea
Used 4 BOGO free coupons that expired today =
2 Aussie shampoo @2.99/each
Used $1/on 2 coupon = 2.49 each
2 Dawn dish detergents @99 cents
used 2 50c off = 50 cent each
2 suave lotions @ 2.50/each
used 2 2.00 off coupons = 50 cent each

Not bad, but then I got into the car and looked at the receipt. I paid about $1.92 out of pocket and another $2.50 or so in sales tax?????? They didn't charge me enough! They deducted $6.99 4 times from my total for the BOGO shampoo, when I was expecting $2.99 4 times.

Plus, I got a $10 ecb after all was done.
So now, I'm confused! Computer error? Do I go back to the store and pay what I owe??

    Sure, if you think you were undercharged, you can go back to the store. They might let it go, but you'll feel better about being honest!

    This actually happened to several of us "CVSers" who used those coupons. They are taking off the full value of the coupon rather then the price of the shampoo. That happened to me and also the person that runs "Hounding with Frugalsuz" and "I heart CVS". None of us took ours back, it seems that is how they were handling those coupons, but if you feel better having them check if it was rang up correctly, I'm sure they could adjust it if needed.

    So, it sounds like it isn't just me??
