Shut up, my CVS doesn't carry liquid B12, so I had to suck it up and visit Dr. Reade.
Anyway, I got my prescription and found a new game:
For those who can't see the text, it says (grammar errors and crappy marketing, theirs):
In a hurry?
Did we promise you a time for pickup today?
Did we keep our promise?
One Time, 25 bonus points awarded to your Dollar Rewards Account...
Just for taking a 1 minute customer satisfaction survey. It's easy it's fast and you reap the rewards!!
Don't wait! Call before time runs out!
Thank you, Jack Bauer.
So you know Attic Gloves and I had to make the call. No verbatim this time, but it went a little something like this:
Welcome to Doo-wayne Reade (and this annoys me...it's Duane, not Doo-wayne...Jim on "The Office" does this with the name Dwight -"Doo-wight"- and although I heart him, I hate that he does it) blah blah blah welcomey survey stuff.
Please enter the code on your filled prescription sticker.
...which, sorry guys, is how they tag you so you don't repeat and get more free points.
Please answer the following questions using your touch tone phone.
When you dropped off your prescription, did you wait at the store (press 1) or left the store to pick up later (press 2)?
We press 2.
When you picked up your prescription, how long did you wait in line? For less than 5 minutes, press 1. For 6-10 minutes, press 2. For more than 10 minutes, press 3.
We press 3, and really did you expect anything less? Personally, I was hoping for the 'for more than 45 minutes with $50 worth of soyjoys in your hand, which you purchased out of boredom, press 22' option.
Are you likely to recommend this location to a friend [::snort::]? Press 1 for yes, 2 for no.
We press 2.
Then they go on to say how "there may have been a breakdown" (yes, "breakdown") in our prescription filling process, would you like to speak to someone in our pharmacy department? Press 1 for yes, 2 for no.
Yeah, we couldn't do it. It's 4p on a Friday. There's only enough strength left to go downtown for happy hour and cheese. Pressed 2.
Are you a Dollar Rewards member? Yes 1, No 2.
So then they ask us to put in the rewards number and we get 25 free points for pushing buttons and being disgruntled.
Considering I will have to purchase another $75 worth of merchandise to get my $5 coupon and that I had to put up with their usual BS (like the cashier looking under B for about 3 minutes until I reminded her that Wrathos starts with another letter), it didn't seem like a decent comp. But sure as shit, I took it.
The DR is sure making some changes around those parts - 25 points at a time! So, if you have a Rewards Club and a prescription handy, be dialin'! And let us know if anything fun happens...
