The Weekly Smile

I haven’t been “a coupon person” for years. Frankly, I find most coupons to be a bit of a scam ~ you generally receive them after you’ve purchased something to entice you to return and spend more money. Now, if you would normally buy the exact thing on the coupon next time, great! You’ve saved a few cents. But often the coupon is for an item you wouldn’t normally buy, or for something you don’t need yet. If you spend money early, the store wins, not you. Econ 101.

However! CVS (drugstore) faithfully sends me cash discounts via email at least once a week ~ the problem is that they expire in 48 hours or so. Still, I usually click to send them to my card in case I stop in. Last eve I did stop in to pick up a prescription. The pharmacist told me I had an item ready in the photo department ~ oops, a pic of my sweet grandbaby I’d forgotten. (I do so many now.) Since I was going over there, I grabbed a birthday card and a couple other things. Checked out.

Welp, my $5 or so purchase was all free cuz of my email coupons! SMILE! πŸ˜€

  3. Yeah, a bargain is only a bargain if you were going to buy it anyway. Otherwise you been had!
    It’s good when it works out though. Like when you go to buy something you buy all the time in the supermarket and it’s half price that week, so you buy two. That makes me smile!

  4. Nice post. Very informative. I never thought those coupons were worth anything. But a time limit is crazy. Oh well. 😏
