Free Diet Coke Surprise

I ran out of Diet Dr. Pepper this morning which, if you knew me, you'd know that it's a terrible thing and I can get downright grouchy without it.

So, after I dropped my daughter off at the college, I went to CVS, which was right across the street. Well, their drinks are so expensive that I simply refuse to buy more than one at that price. It's the principle of the thing. However, they had my favorite ice cream on sale for half of what I pay in the grocery store, so I stocked up on that and got a few more things while I was in there.

Here's the best part... When I got to the register, she asked for my little care card and then informed me that since I had spent over $20, I was entitled to a 12 pack of Coke products - absolutely free. Then she took my care card and went to the scanner to spit out the coupon for me.

Can you believe it?

She even walked with me to where the boxed cans were stacked to pick up my free drinks! That lady was a pleasure to do business with.

She didn't have to tell me about the free product, I would never have known the difference. But she did - and that made all the difference.

God bless her.

So, if you've got a few things you can buy at CVS, go spend $20 and get a 12 pack of canned drinks - free!

Happy Monday!


  1. Nice story! It is always a pleasure to meet people who go out of their way to help others.

    It is a shame we are surprised by such behavior though. Sally

  2. I hadn't thought of that Sally. You're right! It's very sad that I was so surprised by what once would have been considered "normal" behavior.
