How long is this so called testing phase for? Wag is always testing? Reward/bonus cards have been used for years now by other retailers so what's the big deal?
It really give me the impression someone has no idea what to do or is holding on to this forever to justify the payroll used for the testing?
I don't think it takes a rocket scientist to make this work?
Rite aid worth a little over $1 got theirs done so what is wag waiting for, the next big thing in reward cards or bonus cards?
I wonder if corporate are held to kpis like we at store level, cause at this rate it will take years before all these "industry setting innovations" come to life.

I also work in district that is one of the pilots. We have had the rewards card going for almost a year now and we are very pleased with it. I have put together a book that I keep at my register (with screen shots) to help anyone with questions. I have purchased (with my rewards points) most all of my kitchen appliances! There are people who still try to compare the register rewards with the "points". I try to show them that we shouldn't compare apples to oranges and that there will still be some register rewards, we can concentrate on how well the point system can work for them.
I try to stock up on items that I know will be in great demand and I make sure that THREE registers are always open.

R.R. - when someone buys 40 items- X 20 sep transactions- nothing else to see with that storEy -MOVE ALONG PEOPLE- I wonder about the return-a tic fringe that will roll Walgreens-over these cards. Most people abuse the system - way too much. I think writing checks is out dated bs - yank the check printer from the front-let the people that tie up the line for 15 minutes writing a check go to cos.

<quoted text> Umm ya but Walgreens is a much bigger company than CVS is. Walgreens has stores in all 50 states and Puerto Rico, CVS does not, and Walgreens brings in the big bucks, more than CVS Caremark corp. Just sayin...The comapany itself is turning a little on the greedy side I will have to say though
cvs looks like a picked over MESS most of the time- They will learn like Walmart did when they let the stores get funkey and junkey with only have low-end creatons shopping.

as if any people care about what I have to say- but any hoo- I ran into -ekks a cvs - just today because I was on the other side of town and snaged my hose- That store was tore up from the floor up - looking dollar store crisis level - the place looked hit at noon- sure hate to see what it looks like after an entire day. I hope WALGREENS that people love as a drug store - boutique step off of that notion. Walgreens are neat clean and have great service - thats the jam.

I always do my best to be as patient as i can be with the people who want to come in and have me spend 10 to 15 minutes checking them out and doing several transaction in a row, so they can squeeze out every ounce of savings they can with every variation of coupon or store rewards that they can. Maybe it is legit and maybe it's not (it always gives me an unsettling feeling) when people do this and i know that there are extreme couponers too and those i don't usually have to deal with. But it always makes me wonder what price different types of stores have to pay for these people who insist on using them in that way. Where exactly do these savings come from and in the end who REALLY has to foot the bill for these savings. Because we all know. NOTHING in life is totally free.

I wonder when the manufacturers are going to wake up. Shoppers do not become loyal brand shoppers to their products. They're only loyal to those products that will get them register rewards.

Yes it really annoys me when i know that a customer is coming in to (what i call abuse) Register Rewards. Like the other day when one customer comes up with 4 each of 3 different products that had register rewards and wanted to do 4 different transactions and get the 12 register rewards and this lady made a stink because she didn't know how it workedand she bought it all in one transaction. So they did a return for her and i rang each one seperately. Then a day or so later she came back like i'd have forgotten who she was and she was actually trying to return some of the razors. Our Assistant didn't tell her she should have brought the Register Rewards back too and then the woman had the gall to go back into the store and shop and come back to the front and she had no less than 8 Register Rewards and got all the crap she bought over 30 dollars worth for 8 bucks or so. It's frustrating because checking people out is tough enough without all that malarky.

According to past bulletins from WAG on RR cards.. they only want it if our customers want it..just like our modes of dress was changed to what the customer preferred.That is one thing that has taken so long in their testing it out.
