I went to the grocery store yesterday and while shopping, saw some deoderant on clearance for 99 cents. My DH goes thru it like crazy (I swear that he eats it - nothing else seems to explain how he uses it up so fast). Anyway, I had 2 coupons for $1.00 off that brand so I picked up 2 figuring - great, they will be free. The girl at the checkout had trouble getting the coupons to scan. I explained that it was probably cause the price was .99 but the coupon was for $1.00 off. She consulted her manager, entered the coupons manually and all was good. When I got home, I looked over my receipt and saw that not only had they take the .99 off for each one, somehow they doubled the coupon (this store normally doubles coupons up to and including .99). So, basically I got the two deoderants for free plus got paid $1.98 to buy them. I love it when stuff like that happens. It is small and won't really change anything but it just makes you smile.
