Score one for the little guy!!!

Ok, if a coupon says "good on ANY" it should be for ANY!!! see the letter I sent to Target...

Target Corporation

Good day Mr. XXXXXX, (the CEO of Target)
I find myself in the uncomfortable situation of needing to contact you and your corporation. I have been a loyal Target shopper. So much so that this past Christmas I gave every family member (over 20 people) sizable Target gift cards and had planned to do so again this year. If I added up the money I have spent at Target over the past few years it would easily reach into the thousands of dollars. I too am an avid coupon shopper. I appreciate the marketing technique that Target employs to attract shoppers such as myself. I enjoy using the coupons that manufactures supply to entice me to use their products. Today I attempted to use a coupon ($1.00 of ANY size Tide detergent) Please note, I have used this very coupon on dozens of occasions at this very location (XXXXX TN). Today, however was a different situation. I was told that, even though the coupon in no way stated that it could not be used on the single load size, I could not use this coupon. The supervisor stated “we have caught flack for accepting coupons for these.” If a coupon states it can only be used for a certain size, trial size excluded or any other limitation, I pride myself on being an ethical coupon user that would not abuse any employee or marketing technique. I was made to feel like a criminal today. I left the store feeling wronged so I called your customer service phone line. I was told that no one could help me with this matter and was informed that I would need to call back during “corporate business hours” (8-6 M-F) Incredible! I am saddened by this and feel the need to bring this to your attention. Enclosed you will find the 45 coupons that I wanted to use today. How sad it must be to lose a customer over $45.00 worth of merchandise for which you would have been reimbursed for face value plus $.08 per coupon. Target would have actually made more money on this transaction than if I had paid by any other means, as I know that had I paid by check, credit card or even cash that there is a higher processing fee. I started shopping at Target primarily because I wanted to support a company that I feel more ethically aligned with. I know I am only one person. I can only imagine that others are being treated like wise.
Very sincerely yours,

One more note, my neighbors are good enough to save me their coupons. Much of the time I am able to obtain items that I can in turn donate to homeless shelters, battered woman shelters and animal shelters.

Hot Deals!!! I am not a shopper of EarthFare, primarily because it is about 25 miles away, but.... I am making a trip to Knoxville this weekend to do a Sam's Club shop and I stumbled over some info for EarthFare. First, if you go to their site EarthFare you can score a 5lb bag-o-taters!!! (with any purchase) There is also a Q for $1 off per pound of Brisket!! Can you say YUMMY?? but wait, there is more, you can sign up for a pantry makeover and then can print off a Q for trading in your less than healthy food for EarthFare Organic versions!!! I will report back!!

Great Idea from Jennifer!!

In case you don't know this....I adore my daughter Jennifer!! She is a wonderful daughter and she is a very tallented and smart teacher. I bring this up because of a conversation we had this past week. Jennifer was telling me about the items she has placed in her "treasure box" at school. Items that include: Johnson's Buddy Bar soaps and travel sized toothpaste (both we got for FREE using coupons) My thought here: if you have homeless items, why not find a teacher and donate them?! Teachers spend more money out of pocket than most realize. I also think that it is great that hygeine items are a big hit with the kids!! Way to go Jennifer!!!
