FREE Fibre 1 day!
Paid: $0.00 – Saved: $9.87 – 100% Savings

While getting my free Fibre 1 bars I thought I would check out the clearance section. I found a bottle of Visine for $1.39 of course I didn’t have my $2.00 off coupon with me but I figured that price was pretty good so I grabbed it anyway. When I went to pay it rang it at $2.80 so I was able to SCOP it. SCORE! I still got free Visine even though I didn’t have my coupon.

Hope everyone to remember to use their free Fibre 1/Nature Valley coupons today!

Free Dove, Cheap Glade, Christmas Tags and L’Oréal

Was ready for work pretty early this morning so decided to go into Superstore before it got crazy. Was looking for the $1 Dove deodorant and cheap Glade products to use up my coupons that expire tomorrow. The Glade wasn’t as cheap as I would of hoped but I picked it up anyway. Also scored some L’Oreal Collagen Remodeler (day) for $2.99, wish there had of been more than one for that price. And some cute Christmas tags for 75% off.

Scanning Code Of Practice (SCOP)

Had a question in the a comments asking about SCOP – Scanning Code Of Practice. Thought it might be helpful to make a post on it.

If an item scans in higher then the advertised price the customer is entitled to receive the item free (up to $10). The price must be corrected to the advertised price before the $10 discount. This only applies to 1 item if you are buying more then one of the same item, the rest are just price adjusted to the correct price.

Scanner Price Accuracy Voluntary Code Website

If the scanned price of a non-price ticketed item is higher than the shelf price or any other displayed price, the customer is entitled to receive the item free, up to a $10 maximum. When the item has a price tagged, the lowest price applies. When identical items are incorrectly priced, the second one will be sold at the correct price.

IMPORTANT: Stores do not have to participate in the Scanning Code of Practice – it is optional. But a lot of the bigger chain stores do (except Zellers).

Also, many stores won’t mention SCOP even if you catch a price error – you usually have to bring it to their attention and ask for you free item/$10 discount.

Here is some more information, including a list of the participating stores.

Free Olay Body Wash – Cheap Tylenol and Scrubbing Bubbles

Was in Save on Foods tonight and got super excited when I saw some Olay Body Wash priced at $2.99 – I figured it was perfect to use my $2.00 coupon from P&G. I grabbed two of them – great stocking stuffers, but when I got to the till they rang is as $3.99. After checking the price they let me SCOP (scanning code of practice = FREE) one and buy the second at $2.99. But they wouldn’t let me use the coupon – the wording on the coupon says “Save $2.00 when you buy any Olay hand and body product” so they told me I had to buy two products a body product and a hand product – wouldn’t the coupon say productS or when you buy 2 then? So confused on this still, I think I should of been able to use it for ONE body wash. Does anyone have any idea on this?

The lady was great – she even was the one to suggest SCOP – and it was tagged wrong so I can’t go back and try my coupon again. But I did get one FREE and another cheap Scrubbing Bubbles 1 Step Toilet Kit. Actually got one of these hooked up a couple weeks ago and I like it! So far my toilet seems nice and clean. I have never had a cashier suggest SCOP to me before, I always have to ask for it and in this case of might of *gasp* forgot!
