Was at RA last night buying my last round of Thermacare's with the $3 MFR coupons from the Wyeth website. First the cashier accused me of photocopying them, then said, "you can't use these because the items are on sale" Facepalm
Coupon says something like, "cannot be combined with any other offer" (what DO mfr's even want that to mean??)
Eventually he took my coupons Smilie

I had a similar experience at on of my local RAs. The cashier accused me of photocopying the coupons because they were all in black and white. Even after I pointed out that all of the long barcodes were different and the names were different, I got told that she'll "set these aside and talk to my boss." She did take them. Thank heavens that there are four RAs here. I don't think I could deal with that every week.

On the Got2B at Walgreens this week I got told by one cashier that the only way she could take four of them was in two separate transactions. She proceeded to do both transactions. I tried to tell her she could just do it all in one and price adjust the last coup0on, but no, she was very sure her way was the only possible way it would work. Made me laugh...

I had two happen to me this month, one at a walmart and one at Stop & shop. The coupons at both stores scanned but what was funny was the conversations during it.
At the walmart it was just one coupon for $1 off coffee. The cashier couldn't get it to scan at first so she double checked the item and started reading coupon. After a while I asked if anything was wrong(she got too quiet), she looked at me and said "yeah I was just reading the coding at the bottom cause sometimes they screw those things up." I was like OMG. BTW the coupon did scan eventually without any intervention or pushing through, that store just has a tendency to give hassles with coupons..I like my coffee and they were the only one near that had it in stock.

At the stop & shop I had 9 items and 9 coupons(8 regular & 1 OYNO). This store has a scan it option where you can scan and bag all your stuff before you get to the register. Then you hand over the scan gun, your store card, coupons and then pay.
I hand over the scan gun, my card and then the coupons. As she's scanning the coupons the bagger (an older female) comes over, sees my one prepacked reuseable bag, sees the cashier scanning the coupons and decides to say "You have to be careful with those things, not all coupons are valid in this state." Scratchchin Which is true cause I know the local Shaw's & S&S won't take milk coupons but it was still funny hearing it from the bagger.

Last week I had a Lowes asst. MANAGER tell me that they would not honor the Home Depot Zombie Mulch coupons because there was no barcode on the BACK of the page and they needed that barcode so that HOME DEPOT would reimburse them. Rofl2

I wish I was joking...

Reps are back...for now. Stick Out Tongue I owe loads of gratitude to everyone that got me where I am! Read the *NEW* CVS FAQ and post your questions there. Let's keep the deal threads deal-related, please.
Would it kill you to read the wiki? Or to read the thread? All the experts got to where they are by reading...you can too.

I went to Staples to buy some BIC pens today. When I used a BIC coupon that I got from a magazine, the cashier told me:"I couldn't accept this coupon" I ask: "Why?" She said:"This coupon is not a manufacture coupon so I cannot accept it." I told her to call the manager and she said the manager would say the same thing.

When the Store manager came out, he looked at the coupon and said they couldn't accept the coupon because it is not a manufacture coupon. I ask him why and said that most manufacture coupons are from newspaper, magazine or Internet print. He said "no" and his store will not accept coupon from "unreliable" sources. He said manufacture coupon should be the one they send to your house.

What the heck?

Right, the ones that they send to your house in magazines and newspaper.

there was a FP deal with the nexus and NCIX awhile ago in which an email code worked with the order of the nexus.

i got an email denial saying that i had used 2 coupons. Confused i decided to call them up because i only used the email code and the girl on the other side couldn't have sounded more than 20 years old told me that i can't use 2 discounts in 1 transaction.

i told her it wasn't two - it was a price match and a coupon. she said, "actually, it is two discounts because the price match is a discount" CrazyCrazy

i proceeded to tell her what price matching actually means in the retail world and that it's not actually a discount. Argue

in the end, i still didnt get it because they changed their policy in that you can't use a PM and a discount code, probably because of the SD effect...

I had a freebie coupon that 7-11 offers when downloading the app. The coupon was for a free slurpee.

So as soon as I walk into the store, I tell the cashier that I'm going to use the free slurpee coupon I got from downloading the 7-11 app. The cashier didn't really pay any attention to me so I just went to fill up my slurpee.

Came back to the cashier with my slurpee in hand, showed him the DIGITAL coupon (on the 7-11 app) and he said "we don't accept digital coupons". I got pretty furious because the coupon had like a 5-minute timer to redeem it once you open it and I already had it open. He started yelling at me and stuff. I got pretty frustrated so I put my phone under the scanner (to scan the coupon) and it worked!!!

That jerk then reversed the charges and yelled at me more. I put the slurpee down and said that I wasn't going to pay for this because my coupon worked. He started arguing with me more and said that since I already filled it up, I had to pay for it and that I didn't tell him when I walked in even though I did.

The timer ran out and I eventually ended up paying for that slurpee, but I regret it soooo much. I should have just put it down and left the store, what could he possibly have done. I never shop there again even though it is right next to my mosque.
