Some of you may find these signs at your stores tomorrow letting you know that Ritz Crackerfuls 6oz will not be available and instead you can substitute them for Nabisco Wheat Thins 10oz, Triscuits 9.5oz or Ritz Crackers 16oz.
I’m sure that plenty of people ordered coupons for this, considering Walgreens e-mails it’s ads out on Friday. I am not sure if the $2 Register Reward will automatically print for these alternate products or how they will be handling this?!
Here are the coupons I know of for those 3 items.
-$1/1 Ritz crackers or Ritz Bitz Sandwiches 9.5 oz.-16oz, any – 05-15-11 SS x9/5
-$1/2 Ritz or Ritz Bitz Crakers PRINT
Some of you may also find yourselves staring at this sign letting you know there will be NO Smart Rinse available either. That was also was going to be FREE after coupons and Register Rewards. Since they are throwing Listerine (Johnson & Johnson Mc-Neil PPC) under the bus for this one I tried contacting Listerine for a response. Their customer service line is only available Monday – Friday and I doubt they will be available this Monday.
I understand issues coming up with a product since these ads are published so early. However, I don’t understand not making an alternative available to your shoppers. I hope that some of you will be fortunate enough to find Crackerfuls and Smart Rinse however, I suspect many or most of you will not. I’ll create my scenarios without them. If you find these signs at your stores let us know, and let us know how your store handled it.
(Thanks so much to R for your help with this!)
