My 9/1 Target Shopping Round-Up (Saved 73%)

What should have been a quick trip turned into a long trip. Had some cashier manager type come scrutinize every coupon I had. Apparently, according to her and only her, my Target changed their policy. From what she mentioned manufacturer qs and target qs can not be combined, if a coupon beeps it can't be accepted, travel size items can not be bought even if a q states "ANY size", and my favorite z's transaction and purchase are now the same thing. So I have 6 coupons for 6 items I have to make 6 different transactions to be able to use more than 1 of the same coupons. From her confusing "policy changes" she led on something about not adjusting coupons. So if something costs $0.99 and a coupon is $1/1 it won't be accepted. Wow!

I had problems with my transaction because my FREE SoBe manufacturer coupons beeped. They have to manually enter how much it is, but since they have a "new" coupon policy she said she will only accept them this time. And apparently the 5 SoBe Lifewaters were not going to be accepted because they didn't say "Lifewater". She was ready to hand me back my Qs until I pointed out the bottle did say "Lifewater". So, to make this short my total was all out of whack so I had customer service ring up my transaction all over again and low and behold my total went down. I asked the other lady, who helped me, for the coupon policy that was specifically for my Target store and stated it was the one online. Amazing how I get 2 different stories, so off to complain to corporate I go! They also lost my $5/2 Revlon Target q. Damn! They made me late for my baby sister's Kindergarten orientation too.
