Here's reason NOT to have two CVS cards.

I have no problems buying what ever is on the ad with my two cards. I mostly get good service at checkout and have relatively very few problems.

However, last week was an exception. I bought the Tide that was on sale with ECB's. Guess what? I didn't get my ECB's either time that I checked out! Not a problem though, right? I can just call them up and get my account credited. Well, it turns out they would only credit one account because the limit is "per household" now. I'm only a little frustrated because they may "say" that, but they aren't enforcing it, unless of course you have problem like I had.

Argh...I'm frustrated. But at least I'm stocked up on Tide.

I'm just waiting for the next thing they will change. It has only been in the last few months that the ad has started to say "per household" on the limits. What else do they have in store, I wonder?

As usual, I'll get over this inconvenience and keep shopping CVS, but for right now, I needed to vent a little. It's hard to do the prep, get out to the store (have you SEEN the gas prices??) and not to mention, it's hard to shop with my boys in tow!!! Now, when I have a problem that I need help with, CVS has let me down. My thought is this--If they are going to say "per household" on the their limits, then actually make it "per household". Don't let me use my husband's card, except of course when their system has a kink in it that takes away my ECB's!!!!!!

Hey Rebekah
I had the same problem except they told me today that they couldn't do any thing about it and also the manager at the store on S Flores told me that I could only use 7 coupons and that this included my ECB's I told him that they aren't coupon that they are ECB's but he wouldn't let me use but 3 of my EBC's since I already gave them 4manufacture coupons. I called the main corporate office and they said that each store could set their own rules but the EBC's were not coupons. She called the manager and he had just left for the day but she said that she would report his BAD ATTITUDE and report how rude he has been to me. I told her that I would not shope there again and if the other stores treated me this way I wouldn't continue to shop at CVS at all.

What is the price of gas there? Here, it's $1.25 a liter, which is roughly equivalent to $5/gal.
