1 - Fry's tortillas - $1.99

2 - Fry's bleach - 1.39 each
*Paid $2.78 for both.

**Got $5.00 off for buying 10 participating items.

I paid: About $5.00
I saved: About $49.00
About 90% savings

Basically I paid for my bread, tortillas and bleach :)

I had Q's from Safeway and Walgreens that required my cashier to price adjust the items down...

Example: Puff's tissue is Fry's priced $1.79 each. I had the Walgreens Q which should have brought the price down to $0.99 each.

...Well, even though I explained my Q's to the cashier dude super carefully so that he wouldn't screw up, he still totally did. After all my Q's and everything, my total came to $19.74. WTHeck? I looked at him like "WTH did you just do?!" I paid the unimaginable $19.74 only cuz there was tons of people behind me in line and took my stuff over to customer service where the customer service lady there was so totally helpful in getting my money back. I went through my receipt and showed her where the dude didn't price adjust and I got about $15.00 back. Thanks nice CS lady! :) Seriously, that's one of the reasons I do self-checkout, so that I can take my time and fix any mistakes that might happen, right then and there. So, that's why my post says I paid & saved about. The End :)
