    Just came back about a hour ago from my local Metro where I bought a few items including a case of Ice tea which I was going to use one of my FPC's on when the cashier said to me why don't you just save the coupon for next time because the ice tea is only $2.50 and it expensive when not on sale. I was suprised by the price when she said it too me and really didn't think too much into it but because it had the old B1G1 movie admission on it I said ok. On my way out I picked up the flyer and when the burgers were on the grill I looked over the flyer and noticed the the flyer stated 2 for $10 and not 2 for $5 as my receipt stated. So I was telling my 12 year old who was with me in the store at the time about it over dinner and he said go get more for his and his fathers birthay party next Saturday which would of saved me atleast $75. But I told him it was wrong to do that and if he wants to use coupons when he has a family he needs to be a honest couponer from the start and right now some people are getting out of hand and companies are putting out less and less coupons for us to use and save money. So I called them up to let them know that their scanned price is wrong and is stating 2 for $5 not 2 for $10. I won't be saving extra money but I just made a future honest couponer and that is better that any amout of extra money in my pocket.

    awesome values -i have always taught my kids that -well grown adults now-my daughter once hit a car on a parked side street on xmas night-she went with her cousin to the show-she then knocked on the persons door -their house was full of people and she told him what she did -a few days later he knocked down the amount to get his car fixed by 300.00-because she was so honest and just didnt drive away-you must have been raised right he said

    incredible...you should be very proud of yourself for teaching your child such great values, especially in a world where things are changing and values are not what they use to be....much repsect for being the kind of person you are.....your family should be proud of you

    Treat everyone with politeness, even those who are rude to you – not because they are nice, but because you are.

    Children actually learn more from what their parents DO than from what they SAY! So you did a wonderful thing and are a great model for your child!
