Don’t Be Afraid to Save
Often times, people won’t price match or coupon because they’re afraid of what other people will think of them: will they suddenly be responsible for the growing line up of impatient people behind them, and feel obligated to compensate their children that are freaking out all because they were “trying to save twenty cents on a loaf of bread!” Slow down! Get it together, world hunger is not your fault! Breathe! I like to tell everyone behind me (or have my 12 year old politely tell them) that I’m price matching and couponing, and will take longer than most other line ups will. If they stay, that’s great, you may just be teaching them new skills too. If I’m doing a large shop, where I’m getting lots of things for free, or even being paid to take them, I offer a few of the freebies to the cashier and the person who was patient enough to make smiley faces at my little ones, to save the gift cards from hitting the floor again….who makes the checkout lanes so small anyways!
…so if I found ketchup, for instance, on sale for .99 and I had a coupon for $2 off, I would make the difference back on my receipt, depending on where I shop, and what their policy is. Where I live, No Frills will only put the coupon in for .99 if that’s what the total price is. Walmart would put the extra money back on my receipt
Follow the Rules
