Before heading home after your 10% Tuesday shopping, why not stop in and reward yourself for your Savvy coupon savings on such a chilly day!

If you mention FB you'll receive 2 stamps for one transaction!

     You may encounter a situation where a cash register is not receptive to scanning a FPC or not accepting it manually and the cashier in her frustration indicates he/she is simply going to 'Void' it.

     Don't let that happen!!  Protest politely and simply ask him/her to call their supervisor.  There are times when such a transaction would never affect your shopping transaction however there are far more instances when it will.  If your habit is to never permit it to happen you won't be put on the spot mentally trying to figure out if permitting it will result in a negative financial outcome.

     In most instances it will!!  Besides the obvious inventory errors the store is going to have to balance later, your total transaction will NOT:
  1. Be credited the value of that item, thus reducing your total transaction 'Value' by that much;
  2. Receive the applicable points/miles/etc. that you should have as set out in various Rewards Program's Official Rules & Regulations;
  3. Reach the minimum 'Total Purchases' threshold amount required during promotions which award you Bonus Points/Miles when you spend X amount of money - if the value of that particular FPC item happens to be the make it or break it amount.

     Some of the Rewards Programs where earnings would be lost are Club Sobeys, Shoppers Optimum Program, Air Miles, Aeroplan and Canadian Tire Money - both on the card and in paper.
     Before learning about the benefits of shopping sales with coupons you're shopping lists we're probably a lot like mine - long!! For so many years the mindset was to go grocery shopping once a week, usually Saturdays in my family.
     This practice did not work particularly well for me when I first started using coupons and following price match-ups to make my list.
     The first Savvy Shopper Challenge I encountered was that not everything on my list which I had taken from the local flyer  was a stocked item.  It was difficult to hang onto list, coupons, pen, calculator and attempt to make the necessary manual mathematical corrections because my goal of course was to know my exact total prior to going through the till - especially with numerous items in my cart.

     Oh....and I'd be trying to hide behind some display so no one could see my confusion!!

     This scenario rarely happens now.  My shopping lists are much shorter and are usually restricted to only those items which are on sale and that I have coupons for, making control over my shopping a dream. 

     You can start looking forward to shorter shopping lists too!  In fact I recommend it even if you have to stop in a couple of times when you first start couponing.  This way is far easier to manage and control and you wont get overwhelmed if several items you have on your list are either not stocked or out of stock.

     Having a well supplied stockpile to eat from is not instantaneous and will take a little while to build up.  As it builds the 'need' for long complicated shopping lists disappears!
