    I went to Canadian Tire today to use my scratch card and my coupon on tide... Well, I bought 1 tide (the only on left on the shelf) and 2 comet at $1.00 each , the cashier scratch my card and I got a $5.00 redemption, I then handed her my coupon she said " you cannot use a coupon along with the scratch card which is a coupon, I told her its not a coupon, its an offer from your company.. I then pointer her to read the back of the card which states to cashier: Transactions must be $5.00 or more, process all other coupons with a 198 code number, enter discount code amount of $5.00, She still wasnt sure, so she went to the manager... Well, I was right and she was not informed.....
    My DH was so proud of me he said, "they dont know that you read every fine print...
    1 tide= $6.49
    2X comet $1.00, total was $9.59, coupon from tide $2.00, $5.00 from scratch card, $.45 CT money, my total was $2.16

    I had a cashier tell me today that I couldn't use my $5 off any Air Wick FreshMatic starter kit coupon because they were on sale for $6.49. The coupon says "not to be used with any other promotion or discount". I tried telling her that the rule didn't apply to sales and she didn't believe me. Sadly I didn't have time to argue and ask for a CSM.

    How did you get that many M&M meats coupons?
    Open an account with Tangerine (ING) using my ORANGE KEY...29564343S1. When you open an account and deposit 100.00 you and I will both receive $25.00. Wait that's not all.....I will also send you 15.00 worth of coupons from your wishlist as a way of saying thanks.

    Yes I am wondering about the M and M coupons too.. From what I understand you have to buy somethg scratch your card in front of cashier and they give you coupon for m and m meats. HOw did u get 23? Did you line up and buy stuff 23 times?? Please explain, so we know how this works for future uses thks

    I believe those Canadian Tire cards say no purchase necessary.

    You are so right to read the fine print, I'm practising that myself also. Nice job!
