Coupons are for the BIRDS!!!

I know that a lot of people would disagree with this comment, but today, I have to say that COUPONS ARE FOR THE BIRDS! One of my favorite things to do on Sunday afternoon is to pick up the Sunday paper and per-uze through the ads to see if there is anything good. Today I saw that Michael's had a 50% off coupon, just for today. So I called up my friend Tori and told her to meet me at Michael's because there was a Scrapbooking thingee I wanted that was originally $20.00 but now that I had my 50% off coupon, I would be able to get it for $10.00. We walked the aisles and I swooped up my item, along with a few other things. When we got to the cashier, I discovered that the item I wanted was on sale for 25% off and that my coupon would not work since it was already on sale. I asked the Sales lady if I could use the coupon and she said no. I went ahead and paid the $5.00 difference, since it's really not that big of a deal, but I still thought it was ridiculous, since the reason I came to Michael's in the first place was to get the 50% discount. I just want to know when everything got so complicated...
My opinion cannot be changed... until next Sunday when I find some great deal in the ads heh!

you know me...coupon connie...and I still agree with you. All that fine print can be so frustrating! Sometimes the coupon will say you have to use it on something full price...but everything in the dang store will be on sale! grrr...
Anyhow, props to you for cutting coupons out. I'm proud!! he he
