Do you guys price match?

coupons1

I could not imagine shopping at Walmart without being able to price match. It is by far, one of the best amenities offered by big stores such as the aforementioned, Walmart, Target, and even Best Buy……. who knew? Well price matching for me is essential to being able to feed my family, stay within budget, and not spend a million dollars in gas trying to catch all the great but small deals at each individual store in my little town. Even if u r not a seasoned couponer, price matching could save you hundreds of dollars a year alone. Now add that savings to the savings from coupons…..
yes u can use coupons on items u price match!!! AWESOME!!!!!!!!!
This week’s feature price match comes from Food 4 Less. They have Old Spice Body Wash for 1.98 each. Use the 2.00 off Old Spice Body Wash coupon from our recent P and G and its free. YES FREE!!!! Price matching at it’s finest.

Holidays are over and the attitudes are back

Soooooooo, I go to Walmart to buy some sweets. It’s late and I am there with my cousin. At MY Walmart, the managers and cashiers know me because I shop there and because I am a couponer.
Well last night, I was just picking up cup cakes and ice cream for a late night snack and the night manager sees me and says “Oh no u get out of my line cause I’m not dealing with u and all those coupons.” I immediately gave him a super dirty look and then he said “Oh no I’m just playing”. I was highly offended. The people in line in front and behind me were confused and shocked. As was I. I wasn’t EVEN using coupons. I was so mad. I guess now that the holidays are over, the niceties have ceased. That sucks. Welcome to 2012.

OMG……….Not Again

Soooooooooooooooooo I went to CVS AGAIN. During the day AGAIN. And AGAIN this lady, Cindy, who I have now learn IS the new store manager was there giving me and mt coupons the evil eye.  I didnt check out with her but she was definitely keeping an eye on what was going on at the register i was at……..How rude!!!! And she told me that face primer could not be considered skin care and wouldn’t let me use my $2 off skin care coupon.  Sooooooo I left the primer right there.  Me No Like Her.

I am sooooooooooooo mad

I just had a HORRIBLE experience at my CVS for the FIRST TIME EVER. I have never had a bad experience at this CVS. I LOVE my CVS. But today was different.  Today I went in to CVS at a time I don’t usually go.  I am a night owl. I suffer from insomnia so I am up late and I usually go to CVS late at night or in the morning after I take the kids to school.  Well this time, I decided to go out with the kids around 8pm.  WRONG THING TO DO.

The cashier was NOT coupon friendly or knowledgeable. She also could not do simple math. She called the manager over and the manager as well was not coupon friendly.  I had some coupons they did not wanna take.  They did not wanna take like coupons.  I was appalled.  I had two of the same coupon and she did not wanna take it.  We argued about that.

She also didn’t want to take the CVS coupon that was expired but it was a CVS coupon.  They ALWAYS take expired CVS coupons.  I have never had that problem before.  I was too done.  I couldn’t believe they didn’t want to take my coupons.

On top of ALL of that, I had my 3 kids there who didn’t want me to get upset and fuss at the lady and who also wanted candy.  I just told her to void it out and give me coupons back.  I left everything there.  Over 100 worth of stuff before the sale price.  I started grabbing the bags out of my basket and almost slamming them down on the counter.  I was livid.  I grabbed my coupons and walked out.

The moral……..As a couponer, sometimes you have to be willing to WALK AWAY from your haul to retain some rationality and dignity.  However, if my kids were not with me, I would have def cursed her out.

Do you get excited about Thursdays?

question

It’s Thursday and so all the deal matchups and coupon previews for next week are out. YAY! I love Looking thru the deals and savings sites on Thursdays to see what I am buying for the next week.  I then look through my current coupon stash and my upcoming coupons to see what I will be able to purchase.  I get excited about Thursdays do u?

Don’t you HATE when u miss a good deal?

This week CVS……. my favorite store, is having  a pretty good sale.  It was/is the opportunity to get some gift cards back for the products that you bought.  I needed some of the stuff.  And I had ALOT of ECBs left from their Black Friday sale so I planned on using them plus coupons to get the items I needed for an excellent price and score some AMEX gift cards in the process.  But my laziness, and my husband got the better of me.  My Sunday was spent with the family.  It was the last day of vacation for the kids and we did “family stuff” all day culminating in a trip to Chuck E Cheese until their closing.

Only then, 10.00pm, was i able to go to CVS and in true fashion, by the time I got there, most of the items on my list were not there.  That sucks!!!!!! I HATE to miss a good deal.  Good thing they get their shipment on Thursday so they should e restocked on Friday morning.  Hopefully then I can catch my deals…..especially those toothbrushes.

The moral is to take full advantage of the good deals ASAP. They go quickly.

Know your stores……..Make a friend

coupon-clipping-service1

For those of you who are just starting on your couponing journey, it is soooooooooooooo important to know your stores.  You need to be familiar with the couponing policies of the company, but also for THAT particular store seeing as how they can sometimes vary from store to store depending on management.

On top of that, it is SO IMPORTANT TO MAKE A FRIEND. Sometimes cashiers and sometime managers can be so mean toward couponers.  It is important to have a friendly relationship with at least one cashier and if possible a manager so that if and when trouble presents itself, u kinda have a “get out of jail free card”. This can prove to be very useful. Especially when u have a lot of transactions or some kind of discrepancy.

So take the time to have a friendly conversation with your cashier today!!
