My first (and quick) Dollar Tree trip:
Here is my first couponing trip at Dollar Tree, they had a few other things that I probably could have gotten for free or really cheap, but I just didn't have the time to go through my binder and collect coupons yesterday! Hopefully I will be able to get back over there sometime this week to check it out better.
(2) Sally Hansen nail polish -$1 each
used (2) $0.50/1 Sally Hansen Nail Color Product, exp. 9/5/12 (RP 08/05/12 R)
= .50 each
(3) Maybelline lip cosmetics (lipstick, liner and gloss) -$1 each
used (3) $1/1 Maybelline Lip Product, exp. 10/5/12 (RP 08/05/12)
= 3 FREE
Total before coupons =$5
Total after coupon =$1 for all 5 or .20 each!
**Note -the cashiers had no idea how to take a coupon and had to call the manager, which didn't really have much of a clue either! He manually entered the coupon values into the register, no scanning of coupons, so be careful of this so you are using the correct coupons for the correct items, since there is no way of the register "beeping" to tell you that the coupon is wrong. Please do not take advantage of the fact that the register does not scan the coupon or DT will retract it's coupon accepting policy!! The manager also tried to tell me that you can only use ONE coupon (the whole "one coupon per purchase" misunderstanding), and I had to explain it to him, but they are reading each coupon and trying to do their best, so please be patient with them, as they will all have to learn how to read a coupon as they go along since there was obviously NO training for them in this change!
