Disabling this Blog

Posted on

Unfortunately, I have to disable this blog. To my surprise & dismay, I received an email from someone who claims they own the rights to the words “coupon mom.” For some reason they felt compelled to contact me and request that I change the name of my blog. Not sure why she felt threatened, I only have 8 subscribers. Lol. It’s quite humorous.

Nevertheless, I do not have the time nor energy to make a new one. I was able to change the name but the URL remains the same, in which I am sure I would receive another email from above mention “coupon mom owner” crying about the URL.

If you are looking for blogs to follow may I suggest you bookmark these, they are the best IMO and ones I frequent myself.

Small Victory

Stopped by Walgreens with today’s P&G, which can be found in the Sunday paper.

Picked up 4 Oral B Indicator toothbrushes which were advertised buy 2 for $2. I had two $2 off 2 Q’s which made them free!

Also had two $.75 off Q’s on the Colgate, which was marked down to $1.00. So those were .25 each.

Retail total $20.28
Out of pocket $1.04 ($.54 tax) :)

Why it’s important to always carry your store coupon policy when shopping. *READ*

Posted on

Yesterday I posted a “Small Victory” I was excited to score a Lysol No-Touch hand sanitizing system for $2.45 (regular $10.00).

Last night I printed out more coupons so I could go back and grab another one before the Q’s expired. Yesterday, I had no issues at all using the Lysol coupon & the Dollar General Coupons in combination to get savings off of the item.

Today, however, was a different story. While checking out, the cashier called the manager to approve the use of two coupons for one item, which is common. The manager came up & told me I could not use 2 coupons for one item. I reminded her that the Dollar General CouponPolicy clearly states

“Maximum of two coupons per item. One coupon must be a Manufacturer’s Coupon and the second coupon must be a Dollar General Coupon as long as neither coupon states that it is not valid with other coupons”


I didn’t have my coupon binder with me that had the coupon policy printed out in it, so I went to my car and looked it up using my cell phone & I also grabbed the receipt from yesterdays transaction. When I tried to show the manager the coupon policy, she wouldn’t even look at it. She said she didn’t care what the website said & that there was no way I could use 2 coupons on one item. She was beyond rude & very short tempered.

I asked her why she was being so rude, she told me that I had already been in the store 3 times and that it didn’t matter what proof I had I couldn’t use the coupons. I asked her to call her GM. She went into the office and 15 minutes later came out, told the cashier I could use the Q’s and walked away without acknowledging me at all.

This is why it is imperative you print out all your stores coupon policies and make a special place in your Q binder for them. Most staff members are not even aware of what the coupon policy is, so if you have a printed copy you can show them what the corporate offices have put in writing. Clearly not even this worked in my favor today.

Even though I did get my product at the price I was entitled too, this was not a victory. The rude staff at the Dollar General put a damper on my day, and I can assure you I will be contacting corporate offices about the poor customer service.
