You made a trip all the way to the store with a screaming child, scanned your card in the little red machine and had your Mummy Deals list in hand only to realize………………they were out of that item! Stink! Whatcha gonna do? Well, friends, one of the most awesomest things about my new awesomest store is that they give out rainchecks. Yup. And they. like. never. expire. Seriously!Here’s what they look like and 3 reasons you should grab one:
1) They. like. never. expire. So that in a couple of weeks when you have the night without kids and all you can think about is deals you head to CVS and cash in that raincheck baby!
2) They take it and then make it manually print the ECBS for you. My CVS staples the ad to the raincheck when they issue it just to clear up discrepancies. They also give out rainchecks for 3 day items. I know some of you have had a problem getting one for those but I don’t see anyway that it should be an issue.
3) Even if it’s for an item I didn’t really really want, I grab it. Why? On the weeks when CVS has nothing and one of your ECBS is expiring you don’t always want to “burn it” on regular items. This way you can buy the item you have the raincheck for that’s probably a FREE after ECB one and you’ll get more ECBS and will have rolled the ECB for another month that way meaning you don’t have to burn it on needless candy. Better yet: save it til you get a coupon! Yeehaw!
YAY for CVS! YAY for rainchecks!
