This chaps my hiney for a few reasons.
- I did all the legwork to get them. I got permission, I got the routine going. I even called our local paper to confirm that this was okay to do with unsold newspapers. It was a lot of work and a pain to do all of that
- .I wait until the end of the night so that I don't take papers that someone might buy for the coupons. Whoever is taking them slips in hours ahead of me which means that they could be stealing coupons from a potential customer at the gas station.
- I don't like sneakiness and it bothers me that someone who knew what I was doing decided to be all sneaky.
Snaking coupons from others isn't really a great way for karma to play.
This reminds me of an important rule for shoppers at the IF Broadway store. Remember, this store clips coupons for us. They pay for them and if you take them, you are STEALING! That really and truly is wrong to do. So, don't please.
Something else that is wrong... photo copying online coupons. Way bad to do.
Also, trying to sneak in expired coupons or 2 coupons for 1 item. Not fair to the store at all.
Okay, I'm going to get off my soapbox and get back to prepping for this weeks Albertsons sale. It's an awesome one! Here's a hint... if you need diapers, this is your week! Next week... Quaker time!
Coming soon is the first of many chip and pop sales (yay Superbowl!) and another Campbells sale SHOULD be in the works! Hooray!
