I don’t know about you, but when I’m in line at the register, I have a habit of looking at the items on the belt for the customers in front of or behind me in line. Then, I think of what “extra” coupons I might have on me to share with them. (The zipper pouch above is what I take to the store – I do not keep a binder) A lot of the times when I hand them the coupon to use, they will ask me “are you sure?”.
Just the other day I was at my local Publix standing at an end register that was closed, so I could split up my transactions to be able to use multiple $5 off $30 Winn Dixie coupons from the Enjoy the City books.
While I was there, splitting up my transactions, there was a customer who didn’t have enough cash to purchase all of his items. He started asking which items were around $5 so he could void it from the transaction. I then called the manager’s name who was nearby & handed her one of my $5/$30 coupons to use towards his transaction. He seemed shocked that someone would do that – he didn’t have to put back any items & was very thankful.
Many times I have offered a $5/$30 coupon to those that have waited behind me patiently. The rude people behind me, well, they can just be rude.
What coupon sharing stories do you have?
