My hubby and I collect points at 3 of the grocery stores here in town, the other day we traded in 188,880 for a almost $40.00 Turkey, we had it cut in 2 because there is no way the 2 of us can eat through a whole Turkey without puking! or getting food poisoning!
Another of our cards had enough points for $20.00 of groceries. Today we were flat broke and needed about $20.00 in groceries, I went in with a cart (I had to pay $1.00 for the cart<which we took some bottles in to pay for) so around the store with a pen and paper I went adding up the items as I put them in my cart, 2 boxes of cereal, a jug of milk, 1, 1l of my rice milk, 10lbs of spuds, the total came to $19.87, I gave my points card first and said I’d like to pay for these with my points, she rang it all in and just stood there looking at me, there was a big line behind me…..I started to pack my groceries, then the cashier said to me ” how are you going to pay for these?” I replied “with my points”, then she says to me, ” No,you have to have over $20 in groceries” I replied, I felt like my face turned 10 shades of purple and red “I don’t have any money” I said, she replied “so what do you want to with these groceries?” put it all back I said as I grabbed my bags and said “I don’t want them”, and as I walked out, I was near tears as I got back to the car………….. What happened to all these “Angels” you hear of?? I’ve given people money when they were short at the till because I know what it is like, It’s not like I did this on purpose, even the cashier acted ticked off at me! I guess the Angels behind me weren’t in the stars for me today,
Well, at least we can eat turkey for breakfast,Lunch and Dinner!
