FREE Cakesters from Target coupon snobs
Okay, so the bad part of my coupon day went like this...I went to Target. I have used coupons for years and never had a checkout experience like today. I had multiple coupons, all organized, separated, laid them out nice for my cashier with each item. Immediately, a supervisor was called, I was hauled out of the line to a different checkout. Each of my coupons was scrutinized and each piece of fine print read before I could use them. Then I wasn't allowed to use more than one of the same coupon in a transaction. For example, I had two coupons for Renu from coupons.com. I had to do a different transaction for each purchase. The coupon does state one per item. This does NOT mean one per transaction!! Target, train your staff on how to do coupons. I did end up with some nice things, but the twenty minute checkout time was a hassle. Not to mention I was treated like a criminal in front of other customers. I am writing a letter to Target Corporate over this situation. I did get some free Cakesters (100 calorie packs as pictured) using a coupon from coupons.com and a Target coupon from the Target website. You can combine coupons at Target which means using a manufacturer's coupon and a store coupon to receive a big discount.
