My Wags will only use of ONE RR per transaction. Ugh. And on the Pert, I couldn't use both a $2 MC and the $2.50 EasySaver Coupon since the Pert cost was only $3.49 to start with. And today Oct 24 I tried (for the first time) to use Oct ES coupons and Nov ES coupons on the same items and the cashier was appalled. The manager finally okayed it but if it was up to the cashier, she was really upset. Anyone run into these problems before?? Doesn't seem to be a problem for this blogger here! Good for you!

What a bummer about your Walgreens ordeals! The cashiers usually always argue with me at first too, but now that I go there all the time they usually don't question me, since the manger has already okayed me before. Most cashiers are new with coupons that we know more about them then they do. =( Sorry again, but keep trying!
