Even Couponing “pros” make mistakes……..
SO DON’T GET DISCOURAGED. Yesterday, I had two transactions at CVS ALL PLANNED OUT. I have my coupons ready and they have all the items I’m looking for in stock. YESSSSS!!!!!!!!!!!!! My basket it filled and I am at the register. Because my husband and I have different interest and spending habits and so on, we have two CVS cards…….his and mine. Well for this haul, I needed to use both his and mine. So i get started on my first of two transactions. Items, check. Salespaper, check. Coupons, check. And then……… the dreaded BEEP. Why is the register not accepting this coupon? Oh crap. Cause the coupon was a CVS coupon on my husband’s card and i had already started the transaction from MY card. ANNNNNND because one of the coupons being used was loaded via the internet to my card, if we voided the transaction, I would not be able to use that coupon. So I chose to continue with the transaction but it costs me two dollars. TWO WHOLE DOLLARS. I thought this deal would be about a $2.50 money maker after taxes but it only turned out to be a $.50 cent money maker.
Still a GREAT deal but STILL a mistake was made.
