At first I was a little disappointed with my Dollar Tree excursion, the first store definitely did not have some of the items on the matchup list. And I also ran into the first problem we will face- sizes. Dollar Tree sizes tend to be smaller and are often in the exclusions. But I did find a few items. I also ran into the first cashier issue- no “free” coupons wording in the policy.
So the policy does state that they will not accept coupons for a “free” item (and/or one where the price is written in). We all know what that means (a coupon that says get X for “Free”). But the cashier was intepreting it to mean that you could not get an item for Free after using a coupon. So in other words, she wasnt going to let me use my $1 coupons. Interestingly, she kept on checking a sheet from corporate that was a “how to” for cashiers and right on the paper was a picture of a $1 coupon being used! 🙂 I pointed that out and she finally said, ok “this once”. All that to say… It will be a learning curve for us all. But with 60+% savings, worth it IMO.
