This 'n' that

July 18th, 2007 at 12:07 pm

Got a couple more chores done yesterday. I got my oil changed (at JiffyLube) for about $30. Next time I will try Wal-Mart -- I thought JiffyLube would be fast, but they weren't -- about 45 minutes. Advertised time was 10 minutes.

I also got my prescription transferred. It occurred to me that I should try to transfer to CVS, because that prescription was formerly filled at Osco (which was acquired by CVS). Well, try telling that to the pharmacist. She kept telling me she never heard of Osco and almost wouldn't look it up. When she did, and found my name, she said, "Oh! You ARE there!" Duh. After that it took a LONG time to get it filled, but I'm starting to realize that's just the way things are around here. Everything that involves service takes a long time. The prescription was about $25.

Today I have two things to do: I need to arrange to get my pension payments deposited to my new bank account, and I have to return some things to Best Buy. Some things were purchased more than 30 days ago by my cousin, so I don't think they will take them back, but they were sold to her with the assurance she would need them to set up her new TV, and they weren't. I'm not too happy with Best Buy; I think they prey upon the ignorance of the un-techies.

    A few years ago, Best Buy did the same thing to us. We had bought an entertainment center and was told that we would need extra items in order to hook it up. I bought it for my husband's birthday as a surprize (which was 30 days over). I went back and she said that everything was printed on the back of the sales slip. I explained to her that the sales clerk insisted that we needed these items. There was no way that I could have brought them back in 30 days. My husband's birthday was about 45 days from there. I became so angry with their policy and told her that I would not shop there anymore. She gave me a credit with the store. Always find out what the policy is when you buy something.

    Also, can you buy your meds online? Some people says that it saves them money.

    i would definitely recommend buying meds via the mail if your plan offers that kind of service, like Medco. It does save money.
