  1. They told me the pop and the sun chips were not a part of the deal - only the items in the red box on the top half of the ad. Were these items included in your spend $15 get $5?

  2. They should be included because they are pepsico products. They included them at my CVS. The ad was confusing because of the seperate red and yellow sections, but I figured the pepsico products should count and they did for me.

  3. They wouldn't include them for me either! epic fail at the cash register! and the pantene products rang up as over seven dollars each (even though there was a sign by the products that said otherwise). I got so frustrated that Ijust canceled the transaction and left!

  4. I would have canceled my transaction and left at that point too, not 1 but 2 errors in the system would have frustrated me to that point also. Thank you for sharing
