That's my Wal-Mart's official "policy". Internet coupons are fine, unless they are black and white, then they are OBVIOUSLY copies?? Hey, color ink is expensive!

I was told at walgreens that they wouldn't take my internet coupons because they were printed in black and white (from my laser printer at work). But if I printed them in color, they would be happy to take them. Huh?

Tried to buy Rembrandt Professional Whitening Kit for $8.75 at CVS. There was a $7.50 coupon stickie on the product and cashier wouldn't take it cause the product was already on clearance.

His exact words: "I don't think Rembrandt wants people to buy a $35 product for $1."
I told him that the coupon was a stickie on the actual product itself, and that it was a manufacturer's coupon, so CVS will get reimbursed for that $7.50. Still no go.
He said "I don't want to get in trouble with my manager."

I just shook my head and left without buying anything else.

Walmart couldnt take a coupon that said for Revlon Colorstay or any other Revlon product, because what I was buying wasn't Colorstay. I said it says "or any other" what does that mean to you? She never even tried to scan it, I said ok she obviously can't comprehend what ANY means and told her to keep the product and give me my coupon.

Tried using the Dove B1G1 and a $1 off. The B1G1 beeped (as it did for everyone). Manager tried to say I couldn't use it because the $1 off canceled out one bag, so I had to get more Crazy

So I went back and got two more bags..BEEPED and they pushed it through. SHEESH

How can they stipulate that it has to be in color?? I only have a B&W laserjet! (couldn't afford the $$$ for color laserjet 6 years ago when I bought my printer) That's economic discrimination!

You know I have to bring up my Wag Viactiv story again. The lady at wag was scanning coupons for the viactiv deal and didn't even blink until she saw the total for my whole basketful of stuff was something like 0.22 and then after much scrutinizing of everything she told me that the register malfunctioned and she couldn't take the coupons and voided out the entire order because they don't give away items for free and she would get fired by Loss Prevention.

cashier wouldn't take a revlon makeup coupon for eyeshadow bc it said "face value $1 ". must be for face. apparently only foundation goes on the face. eyeshadow must go on toenails or something.

this same scenario happened to another cashier. also the face value thing.

oh, and on the same vein...

couldn't use a $2 lumene coupon on any facail or skin are item on those cleansing face wipes, bc apparently its not 'skin care'. what is it? 'skin clean'? baby wipes?

lol

I've had three pretty good ones....

1) One time I had two pepsi coupons from a rebate promotion. I bought two pepsi items and handed a CVS cashier the two pepsi coupons. He said he could not accept the second coupon because they said "DO NOT DOUBLE" on them.

2) My local super walmart prints out a receipt tape that lists the reason your coupon was rejected if it scans and beeps. After trying to buy a frozen food item with a coupon, I was given my coupon back and a slip that said "no matching item or incorrect size". The funny thing was that the coupon description said "valid on any size / variety" and the item I bought happened to be the exact size and variety pictured right on the face of the coupon.

3) At Rite-Aid I was told by a cashier that my coupon did not work because the item was on sale and that the coupon would go through next week when the item was back at regular price. He actually called a manager over and asked whether coupons could be used on sale items.

LMAO LMAO that's the best one!!

When I try to use more than 2 coupons (doesn't seem to matter where), they always tell me, "The coupon says limit 1 per purchase." And then I have to explain that each item is a purchase. Roll Eyes (Sarcastic) shake head

One time i was trying to buy some cereal that i had a coupon for buy 2 boxes get $3 off.. the lady scrutinized my coupon and then had the nerve to tell me that i couldnt use it cause it wasnt the right size.. I told her if she added the two boxes together then they would be over the right size..

another time i tried to us a Jane makeup coupon at Meijer during a sale.. my cashier kept swiping and swiping but it wouldnt ring in.. she then scrutinized my coupon and tells me its expired.. it was a couple months expired, cant she just override it.

I was at Target and the super duper beeyoch LOD was helping out the cashier. So she looks at my coupons, I had accidently forgot to take out a coupon cause I was only buying one of the boxes of snacks... So I basically had in the stack 2 coupons for one product, so she looks at the q and looks at me and says in this really annoying high pitched whine " See it says here DO NOT DOUBLE "!!! Her attituded went right up my a&& so bad I almost turned around and handed her a third coupon and said " Well how about if we triple it then " ??!!
