Kroger’s Policy v. Hadias’s Policy

Natures Bounty and Sundown Vitamins BOGO FREE $3.69 ea.

Aleeve $1.99 for 24 pk. I scored 2 double pk. for $1.99 ea.
coupons used:
(2) $2/1 Sundown
(2) $2/1 Natures Bounty
(1) $5/4 Natures Bounty
(2) $1/1 Aleeve

$18.76 -$15 (in coupons)=I should have paid $3.76 + tax; however my cashier made up an on the spot policy where she told me that I could only use 2 internet coupons per type of item. I had used multiple coupons on 1 item on previous shopping trips…but whatever. My original order was:

10 bottles of Nature’s Bounty $18.18
2 Sundown
2 Aleeve

She only credited 2 coupons for -$4 which left me with a $14.18 balance on the Natures Bounty, a $0.62 overage on the Sundown and a $2 balance on the Aleeve.

After telling me her policy I told her mine which was that I wanted the items that she could not accept coupons for to be voided. I don’t know what she did or did not do but she was ringing and re-ringing for about 15 minutes until a manager had to come over ask her what the problem was and open up a register himself because a line had formed.

Folks, I really hate to run into this sort of situation but let me tell you. I will not pay full price for an item that I have a valid coupon for. Why should I when I know that my coupon will be accepted somewhere else.

CVS and Walgreen’s had these same vitamins on sale the whole week when I made this purchase. Just as the store can be selective as to their coupon policy from day to day, we the consumers can be equally selective.

DO NOT, I repeat, DO NOT allow the cashier or store to rob you of your savings. It’s unnecessary. They will get reimbursed for every manufacturer coupon code they key in and for every manufacturer coupon they scan.
