Today's find

April 6th, 2009 at 08:55 pm

I stopped at the grocery store today for a few items. As the cashier rang up my order, I glanced at the end of the counter near the bagger and saw someone had tossed down their receipt and a register coupon. I picked it up expecting it to be a "save $1 when you buy 5" of some high-priced thing that nobody would ever buy five of at the same time, but it was WAY better than that!

It was a "thanks for buying coffee, save $1.50 off your next order"!!!!! I couldn't believe it. It didn't go thru when the cashier scanned it (it was probably only meant for the original store card owner), but she punched it in anyway. My lucky day! I checked the receipt to see what kind of coffee the person who didn't need to save $1.50 bought, and it was Starbucks coffee. Figures!

    Great! DH scans discarded catalinas like a hawk!! Back when our local grocery store gave points towards a free turkey or ham, DH found slips tossed aside with a total of 9 points!! That means someone spent at least $175 and were almost half way to a free meal. We freecycled them and helped a couple of families earn their holiday meal. He also has found one that paid $5 for calling and doing a survey. There are treasures to be had in those slips!!
