Interesting thing I saw today...

I ran in to buy a paper earlier at a CVS I rarely ever go to and there was a lady in front of my buying Scott TP and Pepsi, she was not using any coupons, but she got $10ECB from one of the deals and the cashier asked her out of the blue if she wanted her to return one of the Scott items and she could re-buy them using the ECB....

She was already planning on purchasing vitamins with the ECB so she did not end up doing it, but I have never ever seen or heard of that before. She was a very young nice girl so I am wondering if this is just something they do at that store?

hmmm I'd have quietly told her when it was my turn that is a no-no...when you return an item you get ecb's on your supposed to return the ecb too from what I was told by a CVS DM.

Sounds fishy to me and it could cost the cashier her job.

That is weird. I am guessing she got the ecb from the Pepsi deal so it's not as though she earned an ecb, then returned the item and kept the ecb to use. But still, weird.

There is a 10.00 ECB on Pepsi so if this lady bought the Pepsi AND the Scotts and got the 10.00 for the Pepsi then there would be nothing wrong with her returning the Scotts and then using the 10.00 ECB that she earned on Pepsi to buy the Scotts or anything else she wanted. this is my view..

when I first started going to CVS.....there was a cashier there that showed me how to use ECB's to my advantage and she would tell me to put everything on the counter and then she would explain that I should buy a particular item first and get my ECB and use it on the next item...... at first I didn't understand .... until the penny dropped but she was very helpful and I certainly don't think there was anything wrong with a cashier helping a customer use ECB's to the maximum customer advantage......

Well she had the TP and PTs, her cart was full, but I did not see anything else so she may not have had the $25 total. I guess I never thought that maybe the ECB were from the Pepsi, so I guess that is ok since she wouldn't be using ECB on the item that gave her the ECB.

She was just probably trying to be helpful....some people just don't get the rolling the ECB's thing.

That is weird because usually cashiers don't let you use credits on your current purchase. They usually tell me to use it on my next visit.

When I started having DH do a different transaction for me at CVS and get his own card the Male cashier we had was a doll and asked DH if he wanted to use the ECB from the vitamin water on the other purchases in a second transaction. He tried to save us the most possible money but I already had my scenerios planned so I told him no its fine but he was so sweet about it AHhhh If all cashiers were so nice LoL
