Same lesson/ different day

This totally blows but I guess I can't be too mad...

Yesterday, my mom was out and about so I asked her if she would stop by Fred Meyer to take advantage of the Kraft Shredded Cheese deal that Karissa told us about on Friday. No problem.

I gave her 4 of the $1.00/2 coupons for 8 bags of cheese, figuring that after the store coupon and MFRs, OOP would be $6.00 and then get the $5.00 catalina back, so it would be like paying $1.00 for 8 bags of cheese right? Right!

It would have been perfect, except for the fact that the cashier only scanned 3 of the coupons :( Oh, she took them all, but it's done now.

Like I said, I guess I can't be too upset, I still got 8 bags of shredded cheese for $2.00 and the $5.00 catalina, but it goes to show how important it is to check your receipt before leaving the store!

I'm just sayin...

My mom knows this, but she is in the middle of a remodel/redecorate thing right now and her mind was on other things. She was doing me a favor while running her own errands, so I can't be mad.

Oh - I HATE it when that happens. Yes - you have to literally watch them like a hawk to make sure everything gets scanned correctly. My mistakes are made when I have my 3 kiddos with me! Still very good deal!!! :-)

Yep that has happend to me before it is so frusterating. I did the Kraft Cheese deal but did it in two transactions. The store was so busy I actually spend an hour in there YUCK. Leah just a side note I thought you might think this funny my 11 yr old daughter now asks me when we go to the store "so mom how many trasactions will we be doing today" She loves going couponing with me lol

Leah said...

I consoled myself by remembering that I still only paid .25 cents/bag and saved $23.32 with both the store coupon and the MFRs, but it still rankles...a bit.

That's great JoDee :) At that age, my girl was so embarrassed (it was the pink rubbermaid shoe box I carried around the coupons in), she's all over it now that she has to buy her own groceries though :)

My local store is not offering the same type of kraft cheese deal but...I got a back door word of mouth sale of $1 a pound cheese from a local cheese factory (Is factory right??) so we got a good 4pounds of various cheeses for $3.50 Now, thats a good sale!!!

Leah - call the store and read the register #, etc. to them. The cashiers register will be off those 2 coupons and you can go back in and get your money.

Leah said...

Thanks Janet. I did call but since I called a day later they told me that there was nothing they could do. Get this: They shred the Manufacturer's coupons every night! They were really nice and properly apolegetic about it though, so Im just gonna let this one go. Mistakes have been made in my favor at this store too so I am going to consider it a wash.

Leah,
BUMMER! Not a bad price though, you are right. Thanks for the linky love!

Same thing happened to me at Safeway last week. I wasn't paying close enough attention and noticed when I got to the car. I didn't bother going back in to get it fixed but it's still bugging me. lol
