Most of you probably think I have a big horsehoe up my butt. It seems like I get almost every good deal I hunt, but I think that has to do with the fact that I will shop a sale very early and I’ve done a good job of identifying cashiers that will treat me fairly. It also helps that I have so many Publix, CVS and Walgreens stores nearby that I don’t have the shop at ones staffed by incompetent folks
But that’s not true when it comes to Dollar General. I have one store close to my house and they have always been terrible.
The only thing that was good about today’s trip to Dollar General is that they were very polite. There was no Wisk on the shelf, but a truck had just come in this morning. One of them went back to go grab my four bottles of Wisk since there were none on the shelf. After about 15 minutes of looking for the Wisk, they returned to tell me that none came in, which is thoroughly unacceptable since the shelf tag stated that the item would be on sale through July 2nd.
While I was waiting for the Wisk I went over to grab a few Glade Plugins that were going to be free after my $1.25/1 printable coupon (available here.) Knowing this store well, I knew there would be a problem when I found them on sale for only $1. (Nobody at this store knows how to adjust a coupon.) Sure enough, I was right. They couldn’t even find a way to sell me those either.
The cashier wasn’t mean; she was just incapable. I’m still wondering if I should go pick them up once they go back to regular price. I don’t think I need any more plugins anyways.
So, in case you were wondering, things don’t always work out perfectly for me, although I must admit I seem to be luckier than most.Extreme Couponing Tip: You can usually get two prints of most internet coupons.
