Deals and a Rant

First the rant, then the deal! You ready?

Nothing irritates me more as a couponer and a "coupon blogger" than to see people cheating the system!  Here's what started this rant "Stores seem to be wising up to coupon usage lately, ie not accepting slightly expired Qs."- from the Hip2Save comments section on a recent post.  Ahhh! Are you kidding me!?! Not accepting slightly expired coupons? Really! I'm not at all surprised There is an expiration date for a reason! 

Here are a few pointers:

  • If the coupon says "Huggies Pull Ups" that doesn't mean "any Huggies diaper" that means "Huggies Pull Ups".
  • Look at the wording not at the picture.
  • Follow the stores current policy.
  • Don't cheat the system! You mess it up and you've messed it up for everyone!
Ok, rant over :) Here's the deal at Rite Aid. I haven't shopped at Rite Aid in probably close to a year. But today's ad was just too good to pass up because I had coupons that worked!
