Found 6 more L’Oreal Man Expert coupons laying around since they expire on Wednesday thought I would try and use them since they were already printed. Wal-Mart happened to have 5 trial sizes left, so I picked them up, a full size one (to use my coupon and overage) and a Betty Crocker snack size cookie mix. What a GENIUS idea, snack size cookie mix! Was thrilled to find this so thought I would try it out with some of overage. I have linked the L’Oreal Man Expert printable coupon below but it does expire on Wednesday, November 30, 2011 so you need to use it fast.

Well going through some coupons I also found some Tyenol Muscle Aches & Body Pain coupons that I had printed a while ago from Living Well – these coupons were $4 off but had no size restrictions on them! I didn’t even notice because the ones I printed after have a size restriction so I assumed they all did. While in Wal-Mart I saw the 16 counts sell for $3.28 there but of course they were sold out, like they usually are for anything that involves a coupon. But I did find some in Zellers and London Drugs for more – no overage, but at least I got some and they were still free (had to pay tax). Looking forward to trying these tonight for my sore shoulder. I had to go into both stores because you are only allowed one coupon per person – it was fine though because Zellers and London Drugs are right next door to each other.
1 x Tyenol Muscle Aches & Body Pain 16 count $3.97 – $4.00 printable coupon (no long available) = FREE
1 x Tyenol Muscle Aches & Body Pain 16 count $3.99 – $4.00 printable coupon (no long available) = FREE
On to a bit of a different topic that I haven’t talked much about – and that is cashiers entering in your coupons correct. 4 times in the past week alone I have had the cashiers mix up or miss a coupon. I don’t always say something – once it was for 50 cents and another time $1.00 so I didn’t bother. But on one of my recent shopping trips a $5 coupon was missed, I even asked her three times telling her I am pretty sure she missed a coupon. She said she didn’t so I paid, got my receipt and saw she missed one. I feel really bad and don’t want to argue with them, in this case they corrected it for me. The glare at you for asking them if they are doing their job right… the thing is, I usually know what my order total should be within a dollar, if it’s higher I am going to notice. Don’t they realize that most people using coupons probably know their totals. I guess not everyone thinks like a couponer. Anyway, something similar happened in Wal-Mart today at least this time I was able to show her the error before I paid. I just feel so bad when I have to ask them more then once, “are you sure you got all the coupons, the total should be lower than that.” I feel like such a cheap ass. Missing $1.00 isn’t the end of the world for me but when its $3.00 like today or $5.00 like last week it makes a big difference. Anyway, moral of this story is always double check your totals and coupons and try and have an idea of what your total should be (if you can).
