My mom and I were at the North Bend Outlets shopping for slacks, a dress shirt and tie for Jay to wear to my sister's wedding in May. After paying for my things the cashier handed me two coupons that printed out at the end of the transaction showing a $5 savings at the 2 nearby stores. Me being the Extreme Couponer that I am (please insert laughing here) I read the coupon, it read Take $5 off a purchase of $5 or more, TODAY ONLY! I looked at my mom and said this is a challenge for us to find something for $5 and then use the coupon and pay only tax.
After browsing through the store mom spotted a bucket that was filled with socks for .99 cents each. I promptly grabbed the 6 cutest pairs and proceeded to check out. Well it worked. I ended up paying just $1.02 for 6 pairs of socks, and my receipt showed that I saved $25.06!!! I would say that was a successful coupon transaction, wouldn't you?
|Before you all start sending me emails saying there are only 5 pairs of socks here, let me be the first to tell you that the teenager had already snagged a pair before I could get a picture. |
