ok it seems no one posted a specific thing about this coupon..
it did print an ad before coupon
- its for 40 ct. wipes
- Big ones 35 ct
- singles 24ct
its not the regular wet ones
Not sure what the problem is. What do you mean it doesn't work for the "regular" wet ones. The prices shown at the Playetx online store are $2.49 for the singles and $2.59 for the 40 count canister. I wouldn't think Wal-Mart would have them marked for more than that (most likely, they're probably marked less), so at most you're going to pay about $1 OOP for hand sanitizing wipes. Good deal, IMO.
I hate ink waster coupon makers too, but what do you do when the q you want is at the bottom. When it is at the top you can cancel print real quick if you notice it. Are the coupon manufacturers and the ink cartridge companies working together to drive us couponers bonkers with this "I need a giant coloful photo of each canister of wet ones and a paragraph about the benefits of each. We just want the damn coupons people and to not have to run the staples twice a week to buy 45.00 worth of cartridges and paper for a coupon we may or may not use. Jeez take it easy on us consumers, we are printing coupons due to the shitty state of the economy, everyone is broke as a joke and need to save where we can We just want the coupon, the bar code, expiration date, maybe a small pic of the item for the nazi cashier to stare at for five minutes while she tries to decide the new reason why she cannot let me use this coupon. RANT OVER I know some of you feel me on this.
I repped you for that rant. Why why why why why do they insist on printing giant ink-wasting ads? The only real reason I can think of is that they have to employ people in their marketing department and give them something to do. I never worked in the industry, but I imagine it's conceived like this:
1.Marketing department comes up with a great idea like a little coupon and graphic with some information or a slogan (like "hey, we have a webpage, isn't that novel and interesting?").
2. They print it out on a big poster board.
3. There is a meeting where everyone applauds and they decide that the entire world needs to print these things out on their home computers, and this will increase their sales by between 1.2 and 45.8%.
4. We try to print coupons and end up wasting ink cartridges (as well as our sanity). We cut the coupon out and throw the rest of that trash away, and end up hating the company because they are inconsiderate morons who never actually had to print a coupon to save a $.
Oh, also, I wait until these things go on sale for half price and use the coupon to get free or very cheap antibacterial hand wipes that I use to wipe the countertop, faucet knobs, etc. I know, not the intended use, but the price is good.
