Fun Friday--Free Wipes!

One thing I love about being home in the summer (in addition to being with the sweetest boy in the world), is that I have more time to work my coupons and deals.

Earlier this week I had read on MoneySavingMom that Walmart had Pampers Wipes on sale for $1.97 each. I had several $2.00 off coupons for these exact wipes, so I went to Walmart to get some. I had to deal with a cashier who wasn't too pleased with my wanting to use coupons. I was buying 2 packs of diapers and 3 packs of wipes, and I had a coupon for each one. The cashier and her supervisor tried to tell me that I couldn't buy them all together because the coupon said "one per purchase." I pleasantly pointed out that the coupon did say "one per purchase" NOT one per transaction. The cashiers seemed a little bummed out that I was right and they reluctantly allowed me to use all 5. I politely thanked them and wished them both a good day!
So I got 3 packs of wipes at $1.97 each. I used three $2.00 off coupons, which actually rang up as $2.00 off. I earned $0.09 of overage that went toward the cost of the diapers. These wipes were FREE!!
Doesn't get much better than that!

I have had the hardest time with coupons at Walmart. They act like it is going to come out of their paycheck!

My friend Jennifer uses lots of coupons and she always checks out in the garden center at Wal-mart. She said they never give her grief there. Not sure whether those cashiers are just better trained or whether they don't care.

I was at Wal-Mart early one weekday morning and there was a woman in a wheelchair who used a boatload of coupons, got a whole grocery cart full of stuff and only paid a few dollars. AND the cashier was really nice to her. I think the earlier you go the nicer they are.
