I always thought Walgreens had over-priced instant coffee; that is until i went to Walmart.
Same brand and quantity but Walmart wanted about three bucks more than Walgreens.
'Save money, live better'? yea.. right.
The problem with Walgreens is that none
of their sale prices apply if you don't have one of their member cards.
I went to get something there last week and ended up picking up a dozen "on sale" items. When these items rang up significantly higher than I expected, I was informed (with a smug smile) that: "You have to have a Walgreens card to get the sale price." Had I been offered the opportunity to request a card at that point I might not have been annoyed, and probably would have played along. But this particular cashier shot a smile over to the cashier across the aisle, stepped back, crossed her arms, and then asked: "Do you still want them?"
I told her to forget it and just void my entire purchase.
At least I had the satisfaction of seeing the befuddled look on her face and hearing her say "You're kidding?" before I walked out.
I doubt I'll go back.
If this had happened to me... I'd go back and look for that crossed arms cashier. If she was there i'd buy something small and during checkout... read her name-tag. Then go online and bitch about how i was treated by this person. Last year I just happened to take a 'How are we doing...' survey for a grocery store and bitched about how a specific cashier would mistreat my canned goods. (no point in looking for undamaged cans if they're full of dents after checkout) This 'survey-day' was the third time i came home with dented cans and i was pissed. I saw this cashier on my next visit and she wasn't behind a register... she was stocking shelves. The following visit she was gone. It was not my intent to get her canned (NPI) but enough is enough. Three strikes and you're out.
