Oh but it's never that easy. My $5 ECB that I earned from purchasing two Loreal hair dye boxes didn't print. But I didn't notice it until I got home. I called the store but they were closed. So I called CVS customer service and they were very nice but my transaction was not yet available for them to view. The gal told me it would take up to a week. But the next day, she called and left a voice mail stating that I didn't purchase two and only even purchased four items and clearly didn't qualify for the ECB but thanks for calling.
So I called back! I hate to chase down a store coupon like a crazy lady but I had totally earned it. And not just because I bought the required products that were marked very clearly on the shelf. But because the first box I picked up had been previously pilfered by a little sticky fingers. They stole the dye portion out of the box. But also left open the conditioner tube. So when I picked up the box, I dumped the conditioner ALL OVER MYSELF. Jeans, puffy LL Bean coat and loafers.
Oh I had soooo earned that darn ECB!
When I called back, the new gal looked up my case and said she was confused why the first gal would call and tell me that. Because my transaction still wasn't even available for viewing. She said she would re-open my case and get back to me.
Lo and behold, on Friday, the first gal called back to say my transaction was finally available for viewing and I did in fact qualify for that $5 ECB and she sent it to my card. When I popped in a store and scanned my card at the magic red machine, the $5 ECB printed easily.
