Here's what I had:
|From 2011 promo. 2012 promo was for cereal or bars!|
I purchased the Kashi bars for the kids to snack on during our upcoming roadtrip. The customer service lady looks at the coupon, looks at me and says that it's weird I didn't have to purchase anything to get a free product, it's just free. She looks at me, looks at the coupon and looks puzzled
I remain calm and explain that I DID have to purchase a carton of Silk milk and they sent out the coupon.
The next coupon was a Free product coupon for Rice Krispies cereal, any flavour, 340g-525g. I picked up the correct product (Rice Krispies 420G vanilla flavour $5.99) The customer service lady looks at me, look at the coupon, flips it over and sees it's a Websaver coupon then looks at the product again. She tells me,"Its so weird that it's just a free box of cereal without buying anything". Then she tells me it's weird that that coupon dosen't have a dollar limit on it. IT DOES!! It said $6.99. She complained that the print was too small so I asked here to pass it to me so I could read it but she said don't worry about it. How gracious.
OMG! I'm dying here but remain calm. Seriously? In the past 2 years there have been a lot of free product coupons for various cereals like Great Grains,Kashi, Cheerios Chocolate and Gluten free Chex that I can recall off the top of my head. I blogged about this Kelloggs holiday cereal giveaway on their Facebook page here in December.
This week alone I have scored a FPC for Butterball turkey bacon and FPC for Maple Leaf bacon! I also just received my FPC for a box of Special K cracker chips this week. Wonder what she would say about these :op
Next was a Free product coupon for Lean Cuisine Fresh Inspirations. Value up to $4.99. This was from a Lean Cuisine Facebook giveaway that I blogged about here. They gave out 2,000 a day for two weeks. For some reason this FPC from Websaver was OK with her.
Zehrs had Jamison products on sale half price. I had various $2 coupons from Websaver. You can order these often and the expiration date is pretty decent.
I purchase three kids chewable vitamins @ $4.49 each. I had three coupons that were save $2 on ANY Jamison product. The customer service lady says,"It's weird that there is no package size." Are you flipping kidding me? Do you know how many products and different package sizes the Jamison company makes? Any means ANY, as in all, as in everything. Are they suppose to list all of the product sizes on a 2"X3" coupon? It really didn't matter because apparently she said she can't read small print anyway!
Then I have 6 boxes of calcium chewables on sale for $6.49. I was excited to see them on sale this cheap as I usually pay about $10 a box on sale. I give her 4 coupons for $2 off ANY Jamison calcium product. Then I have to hear the whole shpeel again about how it's so strange there is no package size. Then I gave her two coupons for the last 2 calcium chews. It was the $2 off ANY Jamison product. She is confused.
By this point I am so glad I didn't use the free product coupons I have in my purse for toothpaste, Drano septic pouches and baby formula.
I'm not sure if I'll be back to this store. I can't believe how my coupons were scrutinized and it truly made me feel that they thought I was ripping the store off with fake coupons. Perhaps I'll be doing some price matching at Target when it opens up this March/April at the Cambridge Centre.
