A Bad Experience
First I am not writing this post to bash on anyone but to remind people about rules. I was in Walmart today and the woman in front of me had an awesome couponing experience, until I realized what she had done. Here are some of the items she bought
Maybe close to 100 Cover Girl Eyeshadows for $3.24 each
Several Tide single load trial packs for .97 cents each
Scrubbing Bubbles dorp in toilet cleaners for like $2.?? each
Ok so on to the bad news. She used tons of the $8/2 Cover Girl product coupons from the 10/2 PG, several $2.00 off Tide Powder from the 9/11 SS, and several $4.00 off Scrubbing Bubbles 1 Step Cleaning Starter Kit from the 9/11 SS. Does anyone else see the problem with this order?
First the Cover Girl coupons state on them "4 LIKE COUPONS PER TRANSACTIONS". Therefore she was not allowed to use as many as she did in one order. Next she used the $2 off Tide coupons on the liquid travel size when the coupon is for Powder only, and last she bought the wrong Scubbing Bubbles to use with this coupon.
I know everyone is trying to save money and we are all in this together, but if we are not following the rules then we are all going to lose the benefits of couponing. I hope that you can see from my posts that I am as honest as possible with all my matchups and deals. We see that it seems weekly that stores are changing there coupon policies because people are trying to scam to get things for free. Please read your coupons properly and buy the correct items and sizes to keep it fair for the rest of us. It would be very simple to try and get away with practices like this to get more free items, but I see it as stealing and stores and coupon manufactures are catching on.
