Note: This is another coupon that I was given an odd credit for... $2.78 ~ again, it doesn't match anything on my recipt the Ore-Ida Sweet Potato Fries are the closest thing it matches...

My intentions were to purchase the Seatles coffee at Walmart... I couldn't find singles so I grabbed a 4 pack... I took one can out of the 4 pack and scanned it at one of the price checkers... it scanned so I thought that they might allow me to buy them individually... I took the 4 packs to the register and asked.  The CSM told the cashier to go ahead and ring the 4 Pack and to try to ring 4 coupons... it didn't work... the 4 packs cost $4.68 making them $1.17 each... they did get one coupon to ring through but the next coupon made the register beep...  They deleted the 4 Pack of Seatles best off my order but couldn't get the coupon to come back off so they kept the coupon and I was credited $1.17 that I shouldn't have been credited. 

Going in... I had NO IDEA that I would get FULL COUPON VALUE for any of the free items... I did better than I thought I would... but, I'm not complaining... Not one bit! 

The other thing... I didn't include the tax or deposit when I calculated and shared the total...  but, for those interested the tax was $4.62 and the deposit $2.40 (NYS Deposit that gets refunded when you return your cans to a redemption center). 

These posts take a VERY LONG TIME to write because it's difficult to go back and remember which coupon went with what item... There were a couple (see notes) that had me bamboozled... but I matched them up as best I could my memory that seems to fail me more and more each day... EEK!

I'd love to see your saving's big and small!  Please share them on the My Mailbox Madness Facebook wall... upload your photo's!  It is extremely satisfying to see that what I do is helping YOU!
