You all know that store, the one I SWORE I wasn't going to EVER go back to. Starts with an M, ends with an EIER. Yeah, that one.
No matter what it is I go in for, they are sold out of it (sale items speaking) and the customer service.......well, there isn't any. Not at my store anyway. Bad news. Last time, I was so mad when I left that I decided it was not worth it to me to go there.
And then I got a really fabulous voice mail last night. A tip from an anonymous couponer. Actually not anonymous, but it makes this post so much more interesting and I'm all for a little added drama.
She said that Meijer has their mentos for $.50 this week. Coupled with the $.50 coupon a few weeks ago and their doubling policy for coupons up to $.50- this was a money maker. Straight to the kitchen I went to find those coupons.
And this morning, I checked the sale ad to see if there was anything else I would want to pair up while there. And low and behold- I noticed Gain Fabric Softener was on sale for $3.99, and if you bought 2 you got a $3 coupon off your next shopping order. Last week there were $3 of any gain fabric softener coupons- so this could pan out to be a $1 money maker too.
But I did find the Mentos. And the airheads had the same deal, and a coupon for $.50 that was on the same page as the mentos coupon. But my cashier, you know- the coupon police, wouldn't double the coupons. She manually entered them for $.50 so that they wouldn't double and turn into overage towards my other items. It's not their policy, it's not printed in their policy, the coupon didn't state it- but whatever. At least they were free. I love it when I meet a coupon police cashier that is almost upset that I am saving so much money. It's a free world darlin'- and the paper is right over there. Get to clippin' lady and BACK OFF! The sales and the coupons are open to whoever wants to mess with them, which I am.
And I now have a fresh reminder of why I typically don't go there.
Unless I get another super secret tip (thank you super secret tip giver! I'll send my dental bills to you : )
