I went out on Sunday and hit Ollie's(to use another 15%Q), Kohl's(too spend my free $5 script)and to a different Rite-Aid. I had Bonus Cash expiring and a $7/$35 Catalina Q so here is what I bought on my card and of course there was an issue......

$59.70-$53.00=$6.70 + .11¢ tax=$6.81 paid for with Bonus Cash
I earned back $6.00 in new BC for the menstrual discs(2 x $3)
I also earned $1 in rebates at Ibotta on the Kotex item so even with all the issues this was a .19¢ moneymaker. 8-)
Now let's talk about everything that went wrong with this transaction--
* The condoms were suppose to be 75% off but rang up 50% off(same with the menstrual discs but I let that one go-you will see why soon). I didn't catch the price problems until after she finalized the transaction. So I pointed out the price issue on the condoms and after checking that these were suppose to be 75% off the cashier attempted to return and rering them so the difference I was owed would go back onto my Bonus Cash. hahaha Rite-Aid has changed it's system in such a way that this can't be done. When she attempted to return the condoms they came up as a $1.28 return each. WTF?! Ok, even if you deduct the $5 Q that was used they should have come up as a $1.49 return each. I am thinking that if you get back BC on a transaction(even if the item being returned didn't give any BC they are deducting the BC over the WHOLE transaction so every item has a bit of BC attached to it?
That's the only logical reason this happens. So back to the return. After about 15 mintues the cashier "solved" the return. She had me use my driver's license, then she rang the return, but just one of the boxes(sine that would be the same amount due to me)and it rang up for $6.99??? I paid $6.49 each.
So she looked at me and said, "Can you live with that?" Of course I said fine-I had been in thh store way to long at this point and giving me an extra .50¢ didn't hurt much. LOL I didd eventually scan my reward card in and assumed I'd get $6.99 back on my BC but the register drawer popped open and it prompted the cashier to give me $6.99 in Cash. I didn't object. ;-) Instead of counting out .99¢ in cash, she popped a penny from their "if you need a penny" pot in the drawer and gave me $7.......
