CVS - Misleading Coupons
Store Manager - Complaint
ELK GROVE, CALIFORNIA -- CVS e-mailed me a coupon for $4.00 off of a purchase of $20 or more. I drove over to use the coupon because it expires today. One of the items I wanted was buy 1 get 1 free. I only wanted one of this item because it is a large quantity. The store manager told me the coupon did not apply because the item is on "sale". I came home and read all the fine print on the coupon and I did not see anything about "sale" items being excluded.
CVS has so many items that have very minor discounts on them so if there actually was a clause that said sale items are excluded on this coupon (and as I've said I didn't see one), many of the items in the store would be excluded. In addition, when I go on-line, it does not show the item I wanted as being on sale so how are you to know until you get there it's on sale??
This store is a big rip-off. I'm going to stick with Wal-Mart or Target where there aren't any of these misleading gimmicks.
