Update on Walgreens BIC deal

I just returned from Walgreens where I was denied on the deal that should have netted me 2 free packs of BIC Comfort 3 razors... and I think I just figured out why.

The deal....
BIC Comfort 3 razors on sale for $3.99 BOGO
Use 2 of the $2 Bic coupons from yesterdays paper

It didn't work out that way for me, however, as the machine beeped confusing the heck out of the cashier (I'm guessing she's Christmas help... at least I hope so).  She finally tells me that all she can do is call a supervisor.  Mmmmkkay? And the problem is what? Especially since I saw at least 4 random people on the floor that looked like managers of some sort.  I think she was hoping I'd tell her she didn't have to.

I had two different coupons that beeped today.  The supervisor did an override on one, but after reading the Bic coupon told me I couldn't use two of them together.  I don't think that was the reason it beeped. Now that I think about it, I think it's because the coupon would have caused an overage and all she had to do was override it down a penny to make it work. But, since she found some reason to decline the coupon, she did so.

YMMV. And I will probably try again before the week is over at a different Walgreens.
