Grrrr...and clarification

So I went to my closest Walmart last evening. I had done my thing. Clipped my coupons, ad matched all the great Big lots ads and was super pumped about the deals I was going to score. I was still on my Target trip deal high and I was certain it was going to be an equally great deal trip.

Yeah...not so much.

I had my V8 fusion, my all detergent, my Sunny D and most importantly my Little Debbie cakes :-) I also had 6 cans of soup from dollar matching the dollar general.

Well my Walmart evidently doesnt match Big Lots or Dollar General. Funny, cause I did the All match the last time it was available, but whatever! I had to have my oh so grumpy cashier take back all the ad match stuff..no problem. I certainly dont want to get anyone in trouble.

THEN...grumpy cashier lady sat and anyalyzed each coupon. Seriously. I had 2 free product coupons from being a "fan" on facebook and boy was that an ordeal! Lets just say that my cashier called the manager over more than once (all those coupons were approved btw) and was exasperated at it all.

Ugghh. Now normally this is not the case for me. I have a cashier at Walgreens that is awsome, have had no issues at Target, and only 1 at CVS but the cashier was just a teen. I was nice to this grumpy cashier, sympathetic even...but really? Someone was having a rough day.

So the moral of the story is that Walmart doesnt ad match the dollar store or big lots (at least the one over by me)

and occasionallly you are going to get a grumpy cashier. Dont take it personal. Be nice, cut your losses and try again a different day!

I have high hopes for my Scotts/Kroger trip today!

Happy Clipping

PS. Does anyone know who does ad match for those stores around the Fort Wayne area? I am still wanting those great deals!!

I found you from couponingtodisney... I'm in Rockledge FL so I cant answer you question about the ad match, but I would say try again on a different shift... my last trip to my walmart to do the toys r us pricematch on the picturika flipper my cashier told me I had to go to the walmart in merritt island because toyrs r us was in merritt island and there wasnt one in viera... here's a map of the 2 places A is toys r us, and b is walmart... I had to laugh and just offered to go to customer service to check out instead.

Oh my goodness, that is ridiculous! I cant believe she wanted you to drive that far...DUH!

As for Walmart here, I am thinking I will try a earlier shift instead next time. I went during the "dinner rush" as everyone was stopping after work. Maybe if I go first thing in the morning the cashier wont have had time to get grumpy!!

Thanks for stopping by!!!

Target takes Big Lots, but not certain about Dollar stores. I've tried calling and asking stores last week, but you get the people who don't know and won't find out or you get the people who are making up answers as they go!

Thanks Sara...I will go to target then. I dont care so much about the dollar general ad 'cause I can get the soup easily for that price...but the V8 and the All are what I really want. I love that juice!!
