My Wal-Mart & Target Trips

So toady I did some damage at Wal-Mart and Target.

I am not a frequent Wal-Mart shopper and many of the readers have warned me about how strict they have become with with internet coupons, my goodness – you are right. One would thing I was robbing the store because I had internet coupons (internet coupons that scanned!) The manager had to come over and it took just as long to checkout out as it took to shop. So you guys are right, what is up Wal-Mart?

I wish they would go on sale!!!

Where did you look in the store Christina? I first looked by the leapfrog tag area but it wasnt there. It was at the end of one of the aisles near the pool toys. Strange huh? I found it at a target in Sarasota, FL. I was going to check my two other targets in my area to see if they have it also.

Roguex
Thanks !

I was looking around on the end caps too and the leapfrog aisle and grabbed a couple of diffrent ones and they scanned being 49.99 are the ones on sale any diffrent the the regular ones that are 49.99?

Nope, nothing different. Just had the clearance sticker on it. I saw the ones in the normal area weren't on sale either. Just the one i found on the end aisle.

I was just at Target and scored the Tag for $2.50. it's the older edition. The new one has a little girl on it and a new sticker. Also, the Tag was not listed as on sale. The sticker still said it was full price, but then I scanned it and it came down to 12.28.

I love shopping at Walmart for their prices and get some great deals when using coupons but I make sure before I get there I have their policy in my coupon book. On more than one occasion I've had to pull it out for the store manager and show them their policy that as managers, they should know. This started after the asst. manager would not take my coupons because "they were not in color, hence they were copies and not legit". I had to ask her what kinds of sense did that make? Color coupon is legit, black and white is not? I wrote a letter to corporate and cc'ed the store and never received a response.

I went to my Target and they had Tag at $34.99. I guess I'll check the price on the Tag that doesn't have the girl on it. I'm hoping to snag one for my nephew for Christmas.

so i cant find the hungry hippos to go game anywhere, am i just losing my mind or is it hard to find?

W/M can be horrible w/q's. I had a store mgr tell me to ALWAYS ask for a store mgr and NOT a CSM when I have a problem...I do as Lioness does, I shove their policy in their face when they wanna whine and they usually shut up...I've been known to leave an overflowing cart at a checkout line telling them to, 'fine, u put all this crab back then...bye,' then go in the next day, do it again w/a dif cashier and not have a problem at all...they act like it's THEIR money. Mgr told me he doesn't know why some act like that, it's not a policy or directive to treat the customers that way, so, dunno... sometimes it's a good q trip, other times it's not

Thanks SO much for that post even though you weren't able to use it at your own store. I called mine which happens to be a 25 minute drive from me but they did have 4 left and there were on clearance for $12.48 each. I printed 4 coupons before I left and they took them all in a single transaction! I got 4 systems for $9.92! WOO HOO that would have cost almost $200 at full price and now I have gifts for Christmas!
They books they do cost $13.99/per book so if you can find a good deal on them please let us know. I will be looking as well.
