Have you ever gone to a store specifically to stock up on a few things for a promotion only to get to the register with your coupons, pay and then have it not work out? Doesn't it just ruin your day?!
Well that happened with me today! I went to Fred Meyer to pick up my Kraft Cheese for the buy 5, save $5 Catalina promotion that ends today. Well after the cashier forgot to scan and then lost one of my coupons and I had to stand there going back and forth with her for several minutes about the location of my extra $1 off coupon; I finally paid and my $5 catalina did not print. Maybe the promo ended early or maybe the cashier didn't scan something right, I am not sure, but I was seriously bummed! I would have just turned around and went to customer service to return the cheese, but I was in a hurry and I ended up paying under $1 per bag for the cheese which is technically my stock up price anyway. I do plan on calling Catalina (1-888-8COUPON) today to see if they can mail me my $5 Catalina as I have heard they do that occaisionally.
I just wanted to post this story for you all to let you know sometimes deals don't work out; seems to be a lot for me lately, but it's not the end of the world. Another deal scenario will work out soon and then I'll be happy!
