when you're at the 3rd cvs of the day and when you're leaving,
you see a mom and child coming in to pick up a prescription at the pharmacy,
and when you realize where you are, you say to yourself, "Oh, right, CVS is really a pharmacy!"

Yes, I saw that in LA! About 30% of the store is alcohol!
(The Trader Joe's there, too -- Hard vodka, too. Surprising) In my state, it's not even in the grocery stores....
The funny thing is those gates that close the aisles at midnight, or something.... 8)

Either way, it's cash, cards, money, and alcohol. The fact that people come in for 'only' orange juice, eggs, and Rx, sometimes takes on a new perspective.
However, I still add OJ, Band-Aids, dental floss, etc... to my VR order regularly...!!...  ;)

I never mix personal and business! I go to the car put my VR there and go back in for anything else!

Why? In case you have to return?
Workflowy. You won't know what you're missing until you try it.

Exactly! Those items are not things that I need. It's only place on the counter to vary my cc charge amount.

I don't need the OJ and the band aids, however, it just makes my visit look much more like a routine
CVS visit  8)  to buy normal items like that (and dental floss) than to come in weekly/bi-weekly just for a few VRs...

yes - I was thinking exactly that also when they announced no more tobacco products.
(but we're out of vr here lately... so can continue to go in, support, and buy extra miscellaneous products if I can also get VR!)

i know, it's like a jolt to reality...

(so sometimes it's an adrenaline rush and it's tens of thousands of dollars/'play money', to flip,
...and then a mom and sick child walk in and I realize that it's a place of "real life", too.)

true -- however, tobacco will still be there until Oct. 1, 2014

although they still own the tobacco stocks: Altria Group stock, valued at $7.25 million,
and 81,000 shares of Phillip Morris International, worth $8.2 million
source: http://www.usatoday.com/story/money/business/2014/02/12/cvs-tobacco-sales-investments/5420301/

and we still need to hand over our license every time we want to buy the "real" sudafed!  from behind the counter!

DDFer if your mint.com account is constantly hovering around -$10,000

And you constantly get alerts from mint about your bluebird balance being low with just 1 cent in it...
