You can now view online the amount of EB's you've earned since they start printing today. I earned $5! Woot for free money!

I'm angry about mine.

I did the "triple points" so I should have earned 6%, yes?? I spent 115, but only have 2.00 EB's.

BOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOo for that stupid promotion...

Sorry. Someone on HCW didn't get their triple bucks either. *shrug* I don't really pay attention to the promotions so I didn't even know there were supposed to be triple bucks.

I only earned $1, how in the world did I only earn $1? Is it based strictly on OOP? I thought it was supposed to be the before coupon (but after ECB) total?

It was an email that was printed out and they used a coupon code to enter it. It should have turned my 2.00 into 6.00. I called them, and they said there is a problem on the net, and that it may be fine, but she doesn't have the total EB in front of her. She said that if I go to the store and the correct amount does NOT print, that I can call and have them do an adjustment [somehow]. I don't know why she can't do that NOW as opposed to later, though... ugh!

There are differing ideas about whether it's pre-coupon/EB totals or post. HCW claims it's post but I know that it HAS to be pre. My total was $254. I spent nowhere near that. It was my pre-savings total. I would always check the receipt and it would add up the pre-savings total everytime. But here is the "formula" that HCW claims that CVS uses to determine your EB's amount:

0-24.99 dollars during the quarter -- you get NOTHING.
25-49.99 dollars ............................. you get $.50 in ECB.
50-74.99 dollars ............................. you get $1.00 in ECB.
75-99.99 dollars ............................. you get $1.50 in ECB.
And so on...

Here's the weird thing. It says I spent $64 and change. Now I know that's not my OOP, my OOP was less than that. But it's not my pre- ECB or coupon total either as I used LOTS of coupons and ECBs. I really only started CVSing in August though, when did the summer timeframe end?

I'm so confused then! I think mine MAY be my actual oop as I just remembered I did have to buy some Claritan and nasal spray in July that I didn't use any coupons or ECB for but it still seems high for that. It's definately not my pre-coupon amt though.

Eh, it's no big deal. I'll take my $1 and be happy. I just noticed my fall spending current total is about $11 so it has to be my actual OOP post coupons and ECB.

I looked up my CVS transactions on my card (I *always* use my card for purchases), and it came to 115. It's the actual OOP total. Which kind of sucks because with all the manu coupons, if I got EB on that too, they'd have to REALLY pay me!

Well, that sucks. I've been a deludinoid all this time. ( haha-- great word, huh?). You know what this means, don't you? I've been spending waaaaaay too much money at CVS!

ROFL.

Yes; you do spend lots of money there--isn't it your favorite?

I thought "holy CRAP!" when I saw the 115. That's way more than I normally spend there. But I always get in on the bonus EB's, so I still make out nicely. And all the kids' freebie prescriptions (they get OTC meds there, so the vitamins have to come from the pharmacy) get us 1.00 for every two. I need to get more vitamins, as a matter of fact...

I use my card there for everything too, I just don't get prescriptions there because I have funky prescriptions due to my POF and I like my little small town pharmacy where the owner IS the pharmacist.

My point balance was 86.19 and I earned $1.50. I'm sure you spent more there than I did Sarah *shrug*. My fall point is 13.61 so far. Not to bad for some one that does not have a CVS in town. I did just mapquest it and there is a CVS in downtown Louisville that is less than 6 miles from my house. I just hate driving in Downtown.

Measly $2, but better than nothing!

I got $5. I have no idea how, but we do buy most of our milk there when it goes on sale. And I really just got into the rolling ECB's so I am sure that next quarter will be way less.

For actual OOP, mine actually seems right to me. I was just thinking it should be higher because I thought they included manufacturer coupons. I'm totally with you on driving downtown, I HATE it, and the parking is usually bad. Just let me know whenever you want to go and we can either meet at Carl & Pat's and go to the one in Salem or I can pick you up and we can go to one of the ones in Louisville that's a little farther down and out of downtown.
