So I went for SDC today at the Kmart. I had to break my order into two parts. While we were there, I picked up a few things we needed so my totals are a lil' high... Also, my cashier was a straight-up nightmare. I'm not gonna lie at all... Just imagine this conversation:
1st transaction - coupons are being scanned through.... I notice he's just punching random things on the screen rather than match them to the products that the coupons are intended for... I take 2 deep breaths...
Me: "Are you choosing the appropriate products for the coupon?"
Cody: "What do you mean?"
Me: "I mean if you scan an Oust coupon, shouldn't you match it to an Oust item, rather than Luden's?"
Cody: "Oh that. No - it doesn't matter."
Me: "Um, yes it does actually. You do know you're having double coupons today, right?"
Cody: "Oh yeah, but it doesn't matter. We're only doubling up to $1.00" (he's rude at this point)
Me: "I won't argue with you about it, but I am right." (point at the ad that indicates doubles up to and including $2)
Cody: "Oh - but still it doesn't matter"
...... i'm still breathing at this point, and just watch as Cody randomly chooses how to redeem my coupons. I eyeball the CS area, imagining how much time it's going to take them to figure out what Cody has done to my order.... and that's ONCE I get to be at the front of the line, currently 6 people (screaming toddlers included) deep. The ALL and the Hefty Bags were about $18 (after Q's) on their own...
Total OOP for both transactions: $33.85
Total Savings for both: $142.75
I did not go to the CS counter. I was tired, husband was tired. And I was generally not pleased (per usual) with the checkout experience at the Kmart. (Plainfield, Indiana)
