Their loss, my gain
I know not everyone likes coupons as much as I do. But even so, I'm always surprised by what folks will leave behind sometimes.
Was at Kroger's self checkout, and noticed a coupon hanging out of the catalina machine. When I finished, I pulled the coupon, and found: Thanks for buying XX. Take $1 off your next order.
(I know what you're asking here ... "DW, why the heck didn't you pull the coupon first? Then you would have gotten $1 off your bill." That's a very good question. All I can tell you is that sometimes I'm a slow learner.)
Last week, same thing happened in the checkout at Meijer. This time, I did pull the catalina first ;) It was for a free liter of a brand-name soda. I wasn't going to abandon my groceries for a free soda -- but it did come in handy this week.
Hey, maybe it is a good thing that some folks don't like coupons, eh?
