Team Couponaholic now has a Shop Your Way Personal Shopper account! Personal Shopper is a little bit of a misnomer, it’s more like “Personal Deal Finder,” ‘cuz while ya’ll are great, I’m not shopping for you, shopping for me is exhausting enough! 😉 There are a few benefits though to having a personal shopper:
- When you sign up, you’ll get a three month trial to SYW Max, which allows you to get free shipping on orders that are either over $30 or have a single item priced at over $10. There is no Credit Card required and it doesn’t automatically renew.
- Most months, Shop Your Way sends out a few bucks in points to members who are signed up with a personal shopper that are valid for a couple of days. There is no guarantee this will continue in the future, but it’s happened almost every month that I’ve been watching. I’ll be sure to let you know in the blog and on Shop Your Way, when this is coming.
- Personal Shoppers have the ability to send out store coupons to clients. What coupons are available tend to vary, but I definitely plan on sending out the best value coupon I can find to all clients on the first day of each Super Doubles.
So, this was an interesting trip to Kmart. Even with some of the things that went wrong, I was actually very laid back about the problems. The cashier was friendly. (His name was George, he asked me to mention his name. 😉 ) And the fact that I didn’t have to worry about making sure I hit the minimum kept from stressing when things went wrong. I was unable to do the Renuzit deal, because the register couldn’t scan the coupon. Although, some Kmarts will manually override it. I grabbed the Folgers, because that is a great price per ounce on coffee and gave me something to sink the overage into. As I mentioned in a previous post, in the past, I’ve neglected to include my standard points (and doubled points for SYW Max), but, honestly, the points are part of the savings at Kmart and in the interest of completeness, I plan on doing it going forward. (To get the double points, you have to have a paid SYW Max account, but it costs $39 for a year and you get a guaranteed $3 a month back in points on the first of each month, so it runs $0.25/month. But since you get double points, all you would need to spend is $25/month to break even.)
So here’s how it went:

So, my original plan was to get two of the Ensure to get extra overage, but whenever the cashier would scan the second coupon it crashed the register. The first time, there were some coupons voided and re-entered, because the cashier typoed the value. I figured it was just too many in and outs. So we waited for the computer to reboot and restarted. Well, on the second attempt, once the second Ensure coupon was entered, it once again rebooted. I decided at that point only to get one six pack. I wish this one didn’t cause problems, that last coupon would have made this trip a moneymaker. 🙂
