|mistry3||Maybe I'm just lucky with the Ace's around here (St Paul, MN), or maybe only angry people make posts, but I have had no problem getting the free samples wide variety of colors I have asked for the last 3 times they did these promotions. All in all, got about 10 quarts of free samples out of these promotions.|

|Raes28||I stopped by later in the day and was very surprised to see that the process went much smoother than anticipated! The coupon was in the flier at the front of the store and there were a number of employees at the paint desk to help handle the volume. There were maybe 6-8 other orders in the 15 minutes I was there looking at colors and having my color mixed but one employee said they had done almost 500 already. Great deal, thanks for posting OP!|

I didn't expect the disgruntled responses
I went to the nearest Ace Hardware and had the PDF with me and found the SKUs. They were sitting right on the shelf, strewn about as if people had already been going through them already. I picked one up that matched the SKU.
I stood in line, got to the cashier, told him I have the coupon, he scans both the can and the primer, and I'm on my way.
TU + Rep, I ended up beginning my bookcase painting project today because of this deal!

No problem here, just had to get to the store early before they ran out of their free-quart allotment.
Finally got a shade that matched my stairwell after three tries.

Hate to see them lose even more customers to the big box places that have NO service and never have what the Sheriff needs.

|it'scolleen||I saw a commercial on TV yesterday, saying it was today only. It is supposed to be tinted paint so you can see if you like the color. The whole premise of the commercial was to try out a new color, one that suits you. They are so sure you'll like the coverage, they are providing you with a free quart. No coupon required was mentioned in the ad, so I assume they should have them on hand at the store.|

|ethorpe1213||Thanks for the heads up OP, went in and asked for a color match, and a very nice gentleman mixed up the free quart for me with no issues. I had another couple come in after me and ask about the special, and another employee did tell them that it was limited to certain colors, so maybe I got lucky. This should work perfectly to paint over the holes my puppy chewed through the drywall in my room though|

|slickhpg||Went into my local store, asked for the Ultra White tintable base as-is. They said they would only provide in color. Meanwhile I was looking at the can. Representative was almost hostile about it. I left and promised not to return. Called customer service number once I got home and described the level of service I received. They agreed it was not a good way to keep customers.|

|bobjohnson||I got a coupon out of my local flyer that had no sku restrictions. They wouldn't honor it and only offered a can of non-tintable base even though the coupon stated most color tint base was included. And the manager was pretty rude when I ponted out, politely, that there were no restrictions apart from the name of the paint "Clark & Kensington flat enamel paint plus primer" that I was holding and asked that he honor their own advertised promotion. Pretty good way to lose customers. I put back the $60 in other stuff I was buying and got on with my day.|
