I stopped by Walgreens after a big rainstorm. I picked out my items, brought them to the register, and paid for them. But as I left, something was bothering me... but what?
After I had left the parking lot, it dawned on me: I was supposed to get a $1 Register Rewards after purchasing two Post cereals, but it hadn't printed. I debated whether I should go back - was it worth my time? I decided to go back to let them know about the mistake.
I went back in with my receipt and talked to the cashier. She first questioned whether the deal would get a RR (I showed it to her in the ad, and said that there was a sign on the shelf). Then she wanted to see that I had bought the item. Um, it's on the receipt? And I was just there five minutes earlier? But I went back out and got the two boxes of cereal.
She then sent me to a manager (probably should have done this in the first place). The manager got two other boxes of a different kind of Post cereal, returned my boxes, "sold" the other boxes, and poof, the Register Reward printed out. I asked her to make sure that this wouldn't happen to any other customer... but somehow I doubt she did anything.
So if you shop at my Walgreens and didn't get your Register Rewards, I tried to fix it, sorry!
