I have not had major problems using coupons at my favorite stores. One day last week, the cashier at Food Lion asked the manager about some I had but they were all OK. Today though was a different story. *sigh*
I only had 4 coupons I wanted to use all for the same thing, Gorton's Fish which was B1G1. I bought 4 bags and had 4 q's to use. As soon as the cashier looked at them she said, "Oh honey, we aren't going to be able to take these." Then she turned to get the manager. When the manager came over she explained that it is certain internet coupons they would not be taking. I asked if there was a way to know for sure? And she said that there were certain things that they will be looking at to determine. I said, "So it would be better to not bring in printables?"
"Oh no, you can bring them but we will just decide if we will let you use them."
I wanted to explain that I use my coupons to get the lowest price and that I shop and plan my menus based on the q's I have but there was no use. *sigh* Another one bites the dust due to fraud.
Later in the afternoon, I went to Walmart to pick up film but wanted to also get cheap chocolate chips. I again had 2 internet q's to use. My fave cashier in the garden center said that they had had a meeting just that morning saying that they were no longer taking printables. *grrr*
And another one gone...
I do the bulk of my shopping at Food Lion but I might need to venture to Publix more in order to get the good deals.
Oh well. I guess it was bound to happen. I was having a crappy day anyhow. LOL
To all of you who use coupons fraudulently, I just want to say, thanks for screwing it up for those of us who are honest and just trying to feed our families! Thank you very much!
