Question Stupid ?? - Do you have to buy quantity to receive price?

Sorry, I know this is a basic question that I should already know the answer too, BUT - at CVS when an item is on sale for example 3/$10, do you have to actually buy 3 items to get that price, or if you just bought 1 or two would they each ring up $3.33? I always thought from the wording of their sale tags you had to buy the specified #, but purchased something yesterday that would lead me to believe the opposite.

Any insight appreciated!

Yes you can buy one item at $3.33. Next time you're there, scan the item at the coupon center just to be sure.

It used to be wags did the same unless you had an in-ad coupon attached to fillers.

If you have to buy 3, the ad will say something like "must buy 3" or "individual items will ring at regular price"

Otherwise, you can get 1

Most advertised deals you can buy 1, unless stated. I'm guessing you might have purchased something that was like a "price break". There are tons of these month long non advertised deals that we've started doing, and it really is a hassle because the majority are ones where you must buy a certain amount and our customers (at least in my store) aren't used to it. (I've noticed this happening more at other places too). It'll be a longer sign that will say ex: 2/$3 really big on the top, and underneath say "or buy 1 for $1.99". And on those ones the register usually doesn't allow a mix and match of flavors/types. You have to buy all of one flavor (though when I'm doing a price check and see it's a mix/match issue I tell the cashier to do it) If you go back and it doesn't say "or buy 1...." or "must buy...." show your receipt and they should fix it.

FYI - If you shop at Krogers, Meijers, Giant Eagle or any other store that advertises products for 10 for $10, you also can just buy one item for $1. CVS sometimes has "10 products for $10". Just watch the wording in the advertisement and you'll know what works.
