I should add that I submitted my MyMixx number at the end of the transaction and it never showed up on my receipt, no MyMixx coupons, no gas rewards. So I went back to the store and explained it to the manager and she refunded me the $4.00 in MyMixx coupons however there was nothing she could do about the gas rewards. Not sure why or how this happened but it didn’t even show a MyMixx number on the receipt (so it couldn’t have been that I entered the wrong number). This is also the second time this has happened at this store.
