Alcoholics, Chain-Smokers, and Addicts...NoPointsForYou!

You guys probably know this, but it doesn't make it suck any less.

According to Duane Reade's website, and I think the fine print on the receipt, you can't earn Dollar Reward points by purchasing the following:

  • Alcohol
  • Cigarettes
  • Prescriptions
  • Lottery Tickets
  • Gift Cards
  • Money Orders (didn't even know they had these...I'm picturing a napkin with a sharpie-drawn 'I Owe You')
  • Pre-paid Phones
  • Postage Stamps
  • Phone Cards

So, in case you're buzzed, looking to refill your herpes cream while sending a self-stamped package of lottery tickets to Aunt Mildred, and talking on your pre-paid cell with Mom about the Applebee's gift card you want to get for should probably pick up $100 worth of paper towels to get your coupon.

As soon as I read "Money Order" that was the exact thing I pictured. That or a money order for $925 shown as $9.25, with some blood on it.

complaining about losing something that you weren't supposed to have in the first place? nice, nice..
then again, DR does seem to try saving even on the bonus they give. kinda cheap of them. but hey, on the bright side you're getting a point for partial bucks too; 1.09 pretax would give you 2 points. moral of the story: buy all of your items separately ;)
