Another example: I went in to Bath and Body works with 2 coupons. When I went to purchase my items and get a bunch of stuff for free but one of the coupons had expired a few days ago. UGGG. I still got the other thing free.
Yet another example: I went to Maurices specifically because I had a coupon that expired today and a gift card. I tried on clothes and shopped for at least 40 min. and settled on a cute gray pair of pants to wear for teaching. When I got up to the counter it wouldn't take the coupon because it was already a clearanced item. HMMM...shouldn't they make that obvious on the coupon???. Guess not.
Besides that, my day of scavenging for free or almost free items was great. I started with a free sandwich from Charlies Grilled Subs (my favorite). I use a punch card when we go there and the 8th one is free.
Here is what I got at other stores:
My closest Hallmark went out of business so they sent me a $2 coupon for anything at a different Hallmark. (This time I read the fine print and it had to be a "division of Hallmark" product.) I headed over to the clearance section and got some metal tags for scrapbooking and a cute gift bag. I also included my B&BW lotion and some perfume I got from VS free (from a card I got in the mail.)At King Soopers I got 8 Airhead X-tremes for free (after doubled coupons) and 6 Mountain High yogurts for free after doubled coupons. The cheese was .99!, the cake mix .3o after coupon, and the Juice was Buy One (3.79) get one free & eggs for free. (After a $1.00 coupon for the juice it was .93 each)
My last stop of the day I tried on a really cute shirt at Marshalls. It had a spot on it, so I asked for a discount and they gave me an additional $2 off. At least something worked out for me:)
