I know! When you think CVS, you instantly think Vanilla Reloads, but this weekend we posted about the CVS Saturday Free Clif Bar Frenzy which is where you could order Clif Bars for free.
As a recap, CVS runs discounted specials from time to time. You can get some really good deals on everyday items or items that are great to take on the road. For example, today CVS is running a coupon for $2 off Any Vitamin purchase. Vitamins, who cares right? Not so fast. Many people found out that you could order 1 Cliff Crunchy Peanut Butter Energy Bar that retails for $1.87 per bar and comes with free shipping. These are great items to take with you on long trips, hikes, to beaches, or anywhere else when you need some nourishment.
However, today I received an email that my order was cancelled.
The email said,
Unfortunately, we were unable to fulfill your order. We apologize for any inconvenience this may have caused.
Please note that your credit card has not been charged for this order.
If you have any questions or require further assistance, please contact us by email at firstname.lastname@example.org
or by phone at 1(888)607-4287.
It appears that other people had their orders cancelled as well. You win some and lose some, but you never know unless you try.
Do you feel like they should honor these? I mean it was only $1.87 that they were losing so is it right for them to be able to cancel the order or should they have to stand behind it?
