When we print coupons from a direct coupon link (unlike Coupons.com or Redplum), you actually have the option to request a mailed coupon to be sent to your home. For those of you who don’t need the coupon right away, or don’t have access to a printer, this is the ideal way to not miss out on those awesome coupons we see all of the time.
I know there are a lot of you out there who don’t use Facebook, and some of you don’t wish to. I used to feel EXACTLY the same way. Then, I realized how many awesome coupons and completely free products I was missing out on. In fact, a few weeks ago, I added up all of the free items that companies sent me in just 1 week and it was over $50 in completely free products!! How amazing is that??
Last night while filming the Tune-In Tuesday at Target, I realized that my “free” items didn’t come off at the register. All of the items were the right sizes to fill the requirements to get the free item. But for some weird reason, they just didn’t come off. So I had to head over to customer service where they put $6.32 back on my debit card.
Lately, my husband has been coming with me to the grocery store to pick up some of the deals I want. He gets to push the cart and I love that I don’t have to. It’s been a little hard because not being a hard-core couponer like I am, he sees something, remembers how good it tastes and wants to buy it. I look at the price and think… Are you kidding me? He knows we don’t usually purchase things without coupons. So I always have this bewildered look on my face and just walk away.
There are so many coupons out there to print. Some have a small number of prints available before the coupon disappears and some last a little longer. Manufacturers do this to limit the amount of money they are losing by giving out the coupons.
Last night I thought I would get out the ads and see if there were any great deals I should be running to the store for Monday morning, and the Walgreens ad caught my eye. Since we are planning a family trip to Lake Powell in a few weeks, I realized I needed a bunch of things to help us get ready: Sunscreen, Swim Diapers and more. So I decided to put together a quick little scenario of 3 different transactions to grab everything I need. And, I though it might help you guys all figure out how to put together your own Transaction Scenarios.
