I do NOT Heart the Mart in Waxahachie!

After a wonderful couponing play date with some good friends at the park I thought I would get my wal-mart shopping out of the way. I went to the Waxahachie walmart because I was already in town. Well I regretted my decision later after the rude treatment by the cashier and the CSM. I really don't understand what it is about this walmart, but I am sorry I didn't drive to Midlothian today. It's just sad to be treated so ugly while trying to do your best with what you have. Even though I was able to achieve my savings, I have to wonder if being treated that way is worth it?

I did get to use all my ad match-ups though and in the end scored some good deals. I also used several coupons that were due to expire this weekend. Yeah!

Here you see my FREE Nivea body wash! I also picked up six FREE floss and some Oral-B toothbrushes for .47 (I used the $1.50/1 mc). I also got 3 packs of razors for FREE = .03 overages (used a printable from I grabbed two men's degree deodorant for Hubby, I used the $1/1 mc and paid .78 each. The Reynold's wrap was a steal at $1.75 each! Woo-Hoo! I matched an ad for $2.50 each and used a .75/1 coupon! Woo-Hoo!
Here you see my GREAT deal on Almond Milk - .99 each! Woo-Hoo! I matched an ad for $1.99 and then used $1/1 coupons! I matched an ad for Mazola oil for $1.99 then used a $1/2 coupon so each was $1.49. The Rosarita refried beans are another ad match for .59 each and used a .25/1 coupon, so each was only .34 cents! I matched Kool-aid for 10 cents each then used the Buy 10 Get 5 Free coupons which actually scans at $1.25. So I got 75 Kool-aid mixes for $1.25! That's less than 2 cents each!
I racked up on the produce using ad matching!!! Love it! I grabbed pineapples for $1.50 each - $1.00 the wm price! I also got apples for .99 cents a pound! Broccoli was also .99 cents a pound and pears were .87 cents a pound! I got Hubby some cucumbers three for .88 cents and a had of lettuce for .68!
I grabbed a bag of rice matching an ad for $1.29 and using a coupon for .75 cents off = .54 cents! I also matched an ad for sugar @ $1.68. I used my vocalpoint coupon for a FREE Breve Creamer. The skinner pasta was a great deal at .38 each!
I used a couple of .40/2 coupons for the pizza rolls - so they were .98 each. I also got four Pringles using an ad match for .99. I plan to send off for my Pringles Speaker soon! Woo-Hoo! How exciting! LOL
This is a good find. I was out of packing tape and was looking in the tape section when I found this TRY ME FREE promo! Well Okay! I bought two and will send in for my rebate right away!!! Yeah for Free Tape!

Well that was my trip. Overall it was a good one. I found my stuff and got some good deals. The cashier was less than friendly and she flustered me a few times with her rudeness. I left thinking that my trip didn't add up right. She gave me difficulty about using a few of my coupons. When she printed a journal I figured out she hadn't charged me for two of my Almond Milks. I brought this to her attention and she rang them up and the coupons went right through. Then my vocal point coupon wouldn't scan and the CSM was very rude about it. She ended up manually entering it, but not without making me feel like a cheater. :( It was late and with the nagging feeling my total was incorrect I left Wal-Mart. When I got home I discovered several mistakes. She hadn't credited me for two of my coupons ($2); she charged for 10 extra pastas ($3.80) and my freezer latch rang up for $5 instead of $4. So it looks like I will be going back up to Wal-Mart to straighten out my bill. Sigh...I should have done it before I left but it was getting late and Hubby and the boys were patiently waiting.

Well that's all for now...until next time...check those receipts peeps, and smile and wish you cashier a nice day even when she treats you ugly...wendy

  1. I'm sorry you got treated rudely, girl. I just hate that...doggonnit. I'm gonna call the manager at some point and ask about it. It drives me nuts. Anyway, changing subjects for a minute, which ad did you price match the Almond Milk with?
