i wanted to finish the buy & $ave resolution rewards and today (1/28) is the last day! i already had $57 towards the $100 needed, so i bought $43.68 worth of participating items. i was pretty disappointed to get my receipt and find that it showed i only had $81 towards the deal after these purchases. but i double checked my purchases and math and as far as i can tell this is rite aid's mistake. i'm not sure which items did not count, but everything i bought today should have been part of the promotion.

i will contact customer service and ask for my $20 +up to be mailed. they've been very helpful when i've contacted them about missing +ups before, so hopefully this time will be just as pleasant!

i let the cashier know that the john frieda was on sale for $11.99 (didn't notice that my discounted price was only $10.79!) but he entered the coupon for the reg price anyway!

update 1/30/12: just contacted customer service by chat, they said i will receive my resolution rewards +ups by mail in 2-3 weeks. i will update when i receive them!

update 2/13/12: today i received my $20 +up resolution rewards in the mail :)

* i have the wellness gold+ discount - after earning 1000 points wellness+ cardholders receive 20% off. customer will receive the lower of the discount price or sale price. read more here
